Re: R.I.P. Ennio Morricone

So the European cut (229 minutes) of Once Upon a Time in America is the most widely-available cut now. (I don't think the linear, studio-mandated 139 minute American cut has ever been released on video; if it has, it hasn't been since the VHS days.) In the United States at least, if you go to rent i...

Re: R.I.P. Ennio Morricone

I actually haven't watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly since I was probably in high school. I've been meaning to watch it again, and I have the Blu-Ray's of the whole No-Name Trilogy sitting on my shelf, but I haven't gotten around to it. I do love Once Upon a Time in the West , and one of the g...

R.I.P. Charlie Daniels

He definitely became pretty far-right in his later years, but if nothing else, he deserves a shout-out for "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", one of the classics that fully merits its status as a classic. It's an all-time great country song in my opinion--an all-time great song in any genre...

Re: R.I.P. Nick Cordero

Yes, very sad. Another reminder that this terrible virus is indiscriminate. Younger people may be less vulnerable on the whole but anyone who gets it and is hospitalized can succumb to it. I don't understand the attitude of so many young people that if they get it, they'll get over it. It's as stup...

Re: Nick Cordero

Devastatingly sad news.

Knowing what he went through makes me even more angry that so many people do not take this seriously.

Re: Coming DVDs

I'm thinking for placing an order directly with Indicator. There is a Hammer boxset I'm interested in as well as the William Castle box sets. Plus I'm feeling very nostalgic for Force 10 From Navarone. Plus I need to purchase some Blu Ray cases for ones that have been damaged in the post. I've orde...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

Greg, I had a long response, but I got logged out and lost it. The short answer is, we had to provide hard copy assignments for students who didn't have internet access or whose parents requested it. I gave the same exact assignments for online or for those who had hard copies. Even if they turned i...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

If you follow me on Twitter*, I've been tweeting some today about what's going in my state, and specifically in my part of it: Schools have been allowed to do summer workouts and practices for sports, and there have multiple reports of students testing positive for COVID, which means that the whole ...

If anyone is interested in an antibody test, for a limited time Red Cross is doing antibody testing on all blood donations; you can search your location on their website to find a Red Cross-sponsored blood drive or one of their blood donation centers.

Re: New Developments III

I don't think he even wants a second term. I actually tweeted almost the same thing this morning. I think he kind of wants to keep the cult and the power for ego purposes, but the only things he's really liked about being President is the rallies (a chance to do his standup routine) and trying to d...

Re: 2019 Oscar shouldabeens

Re, Waves : That first half is a lot, and I fully understand people not liking it. It's one of those things that I couldn't really argue or defend, because I get why people wouldn't respond to it and might find it even ludicrous. (I know some people really hated the musical choice that comes at the ...

Re: 2019 Oscar shouldabeens

I'm interested to see some other reactions to Waves . It's one of those movies that I fully understand some people will hate, but I've watched it twice now and I liked it just as much the second time. (Didn't put it as an ensemble nominee because I had already put it in all four acting categories.) ...
