Gibbous is grand, and glutinous is pretty good.

Re: Upcoming Films...

Righteous Kill looks promising... last time DeNiro and Pacino were in a movie together ( Heat ), it was quite good. Not a huge fan of serial killer films, but if anybody can pull it off and make it interesting this crew should be able to. Director and producer also did Land of the Blind , so this l...

Re: What is the strangest movie you have ever seen?

Hrmm, weird sex movies (not porno):

Lair of the White Worm is a classic weird movie, with quite a bit of classically weird sex.

Re: Rated "R" or not?

I don't know, when I lived in the UK (1990s) they used to show unedited films on channel 4 all the time after 10pm. Sex, drugs, cursing, violence, got the whole gamut, and it was good. Think it was summer of 96 they showed every Kubrick film, unedited, uninterrupted, from his student days through hi...

Re: Upcoming Films...

Is Moore suing again? The guy is a genius, but he's also a cranky old bastard, imho. I thought 300 was pretty bad myself. The only thing I really enjoyed about it was watching the young jock/thug crownd get into something that was so overtly homoerotic. I got lots o laughs from that. The thing about...

Re: Words and Music

As long as it isn't music I'm hearing for the first time, I have no problem reading and listening simultaneously. Bingo. And for me, listening to music I know very well (even very loudly) helps me concentrate, especially when there is other noise at the same time. When I was living in London, all r...

Re: Of why harry potter and dan brown books sucks

I just had a hard time suspending my desire for decent dialogue, characterization, and something approaching relevance.

Re: Of why harry potter and dan brown books sucks

Well, I can see how people might like HDM if they haven't had the chance to read widely. It does strike me that those of us who are bashing the books are all self-professed bibliophiles. As such, I imagine that if we convinced these youngsters to read, say... something by Marquez that they would com...

If Tim Burton ends up making the Watchmen movie, I might be able to die happy, but I doubt it.

If I didn't invent them, then there is ANOTHER really weird person out there who must have thought of them before me.
