Yep Star Wars IV: A New Hope. That's what the screen crawl said in 1977. I was in college. The line went around the Theater. Waited hour and a half. First showing.

I also caught the first showing of Star Trek the Motion Picture. Longer line.

And skipped out in high school to catch the First showing of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Noon show. The first hundred people were handed a coconut on the way in. I had no idea why until King Arthur rode up. I was already in tears from Ralph the Wonder Llama.

I missed Woodstock. Parents wouldn't let me go.

Watched the Moon Landing & the Beatles first show on Ed Sullivan. Elvis too. ( the nurses combed my hair like Elvis when they cleaned me up when I was born. I had thick black hair. It's silver now. )

Smokey and The Bandit..... I have stories. The statute of limitations should apply. I was driving my Dad's Polara. It was his first private car after years of driving company fleet cars. Ordered it from the fleet catalog. Yellow w/black vinyl top. Cop wheels and tires. A727 with 360 Pursuit package. 1000 cfm Thermoquad & automatic/manual reverse shift kit.

The only reason I didn't lose my license was the headlights were the same as the cop car. And pure luck. This was the Rev On The Redline era on Lake Ave. ( Foreigner )

The 440 Pursuit package was faster but none of the local cops had them. ( CHP used them on the Vegas/Barstow highway to catch Ferraris )

Years later car collectors would argue the car didn't exist. I had the build sheet. Dodge would custom order darn near everything.

My buddy Mike custom ordered a '77 Dodge Street Van with a 440. When we picked it up we noticed lots of rubber stripes in the dealer lot. While he was signing the paperwork the dealer mechanics told us it would do wheelies. It didn't. But it ate Firebirds for breakfast.

Oh... and a local Punk band wrote a song about my Suzuki GS1100E. My sister was dating the lead singer & I gave him a ride once and apparently it left an impression.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-52242 11/Jodie-Foster-slams-superhero-movies.html

There have been some critics hating comic book genre movies. Catwoman, Electra, Xmen 3 come to mind as films that could have been much better. I do get Jodie's point.

I blame Hollywood. Give us better stories. If 40 year old comic books have better stories than Hollywood can write, give me The Dark Phoenix Saga. There's a role for Jodie to sink her teeth into.

Better yet, use your director talents in giving us a DC movie with female characters that talk to each other.

Maybe the animated DC Superhero Girls live action version? Make it not suck. Please.

Otherwise you've got whatever dreck Hollywood has to offer. Make a gem like Hidden Figures. Please. Pretty please.

You are not remembering that screen crawl from 1977 correctly.

It was a long time ago. It was just "Star Wars"





You SURE you didn't go to Woodstock?

Hey! I was Wr... I was Wr.... I was mistaken!

Yep, too young to go to Woodstock. Altamont too. I have read The Electric Koolaid Acid Test, by Tom Wolfe, and Hells Angels by Hunter S. Thomson.


The 165 best movies article I posted the link to @ 2:04 Sat. is pretty good. He missed a few I would have listed, like Forbidden Planet, and seems to have missed more than that in Sci-fi that deserves mention, but he did include Star Trek The Wrath Of Kahn, so he isn't completely blind to the genre.

Ricardo Montalblan at age 62 was able to convince you that he was just as deadly as he was in the Original series, and decades more bitter. Being allowed to chew the scenery as a great villain head to head with William Shatner, in Shakespearian excess quoting Moby Dick.... Over the top? Hell yes. Great? you bet.

Hey; like wow, man!

I've got stories...

I could have gone to Woodstock; several of my friends did. Why I didn't go is a story all by itself.

Not my list... But a convenient dozen to comment on.

1. Didn't see. Good actor, just not my cuppa.

2. Heck yes. "hulk like raging fire".

3. Didn't see, not my cuppa.

4. Didn't see, will catch eventually, probably great.

5. Goddess. 'Nuff said.

6. Didn't see... no opinion.

7. Haven't seen yet, looks good.

8. Yeah! Spiderman! And although The Vulture was a mediocre adversary visually, ( hard to emote in armor ) Micheal Keaton scared you cold out of costume, and must be Marvel's second Best Villain. ( After Loki )

9. Didn't see. Not my Cuppa.

10. !!!!!! How did I miss this? Must go buy DVD. Check out the trailer.



Ok, it's all wrong. Crime drama, Butthole of nowhere, "second tier" actors, and so on. It's like a Jan Michael Vincent film festival mashup. But... Jeremy Renner is good. Elizabeth Olson too. So is everyone else.

11. Logan. Best Picture.

12. Haven't seen, will. Probably online.

I see National Review's film guy disagrees with me on Wonder Woman and bashes Wind River. Cool. That bumps Wind River up on my must buy list.

I don't have to agree with you to learn from you. Just understand why we disagree.

The Golden Globes is over. I missed it, was watching bicycle fail videos. There was corn whiskey involved.

I think I saw one film that was nominated. But don't remember which. Didn't win. The news didn't get into costume or special effects awards, so I may have seen some of those...... This isn't a surprise for me. Moody dramas and horror movies aren't my thing and unless there are big explosions and special effects I seldom bother to go to the theater, figuring a small screen is good enough. Westerns, with grand vistas, that will get me out, I may have missed Dunkirk by being turned off by the tone unfairly.

But generally the Hollywood horde loves movies that are artsy fartsy dramas that I might like later but feel no need to pay for. I sometimes miss good stuff, it's true, but the show business types are unlikely to give Dafne Keen a Best Actress nomination because a "Superhero" movie isn't "art". And she deserves something for her performance.

Anecdote from "Logan"...... Hugh Jackman had a scene where he yells in anger at Dafne. Felt bad about going off on a kid, so apologized to her mother. Mom told him not to feel bad, her daughter just told him he was a Puta. : )

Enlighten me, please. Puta is slang for w.hore/bitch/prostitute. Is there another meaning?

Puta would not apply. Puta is the female word. Puto is the male word, and it can mean coward or traitor.

1:37:55ish... The English captioning just says "yells in Spanish".

Honestly I can't tell if it's Puta or Puto, but the most unkind version of prostitute fits the scene. After all, she's only 12.

Natalie Portman in Leon, The Professional, was the same age.

My understranding is "pu**y". Heck, now I gotta watch Logan AGAIN just to pick up that line. Dang if I haven't watched it about 3-4 times already...

When in the heck will the new Blade Runner be available to rent?!? Jonesing for some good sci-fi, what with all this crappy weather.

The anecdote is from Jackman. Keen is ripping it out so fast I can't tell you for sure. It was dramatically effective. Anyone speaks Spanish that can translate?

I noticed the 4K versions are getting to the store before the DVD.

The local second tier theater closed.... then reopened. The popcorn was stale, but I can do dinner first & skip it for cheap tickets.

There are small town theaters locally owned by movie buffs. Real butter on fresh popcorn, posters for sale in lobby, Dansville. Real butter & cheese popcorn, Macedon. Several more, all family businesses worth supporting.

Dangit, Hoot- I guess my Redbox folks locally are slacking, been looking for it. We finally watched "Benjamin Button" last night- very entertaining, beautifully shot, but seemed as long as "Dances With Wolves"...

After reading all the reviews of "Get Out" and "The Shape of Water", those are high on the watchlist too.
