Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

And Armie Hammer embodies the uber-WASP dudebro entrepeneur/villain. One wonders what his great-grandfather would have made of this devastating indictment of capitalism. I remember one time watching an old Tonight Show where Johnny Carson interviewed Armand Hammer. This was during the time of the n...

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

The Apartment - Billy Wilder - 1960 This is another time I used TCM as an opportunity to catch up on a celebrated film I had still yet to see. From the beginning with Jack Lemmon's voice over, it became apparent that rapid-fire repartee would punctuate the film from beginning to end. What impressed...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Trump's recent SCOTUS pick has written that a sitting President should never be indicted. How convenient.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

As radical as it sounds, if a progressive President and Congress is elected in 2020; and, the Supreme Court rules the passed-and-signed legislation unconstitutional, I think it would then be the correct decision for the President and Senate to increase the number of Justices in the Supreme Court.

Re: Black Panther Reviews

With the year almost half over, just two films, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, still account for over 1/3 of all domestic -theatrical-box-office sales.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Every award went to an adaptation, either a revival or a non-revival based on a movie or TV show. Does anyone know if this is the first time it has happened?

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

The big Donald-Trump-potential-pardoning-marathon surprise for me is Martha Stewart. At this point, with her being out of jail for years and back to her career, it could not make any impact on her life. She even publicly supported Hilary Clinton. The only thing I can think of is to thumb his nose at...
