ScoreKeeper Lauds FSM's New 14 Disc Box Set of Ron Jones' Music From STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION!!

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here toasting the soundtrack savants over at Film Score Monthly for their latest and greatest gluttonous collection of fabulous film music...or in this case, television music. Scores...The final frontier. If you have even the slightest interest in film or television scores then you are certainly aware of the Brobdingnagian influx of music that is being unleashed on a near daily basis. All the major labels continue their battle for our hard-earned dollars and we're left reaping the rewards. There are so many highly-revered titles coming out, my due diligence struggles to keep up with them all. The next bombshell is the fifth box set release by Film Score Monthly. I'm a huge fan of their box sets and have the previous four in my personal collection (FSM Box-001 "Elmer Bernstein's Film Music Collection," FSM Box-002 "Superman: The Music," FSM Box-003 "MGM Soundtrack Treasury," FSM Box-004 "Miklós Rózsa Treasury"). Today, FSM announced that they are releasing an unprecedented 14 disc box set including the complete scores for forty, that's right...forty episodes of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION (1987-1999) all composed by Ron Jones!





This limited edition box set (5000 copies) features sixteen hours of complete scores from forty episodes aired during the first four seasons of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION including bonus tracks from Jones' "The Best of Both Worlds" and two computer games, "Starfleet Academy" (1997) and "Starfleet Command (1999). The audio samples sound exquisite as is usually the case with Film Score Monthly releases. This is truly a labor of love and a life-long wish fulfilled for album producer and Film Score Monthly founder Lukas Kendall. The online liner notes are available HERE. For more information including a list of episodes contained on the disc, audio samples from selected tracks, and pre-ordering information visit HERE. Autographed copies were available to the first 100 buyers but those have quickly been snatched up. If you would still like to get an autographed copy of the set for yourself, Ron Jones will be at Dark Delicacies on September 19th at 2:00PM to signs copies of this new box set. Pre-orders for autographed copoies are also being taken for those living outside of the Los Angeles area. Check out the web site for Dark Delicacies for more information. Engage!

    14 discs of essentially the same thing?

    The music used for each TNG episode sounded virtually identical to me. I pity the fool who will listen to this. I can't believe anyone sane can sit through them all.

    Guys, they FIRED Jones for NOT making white noise!

    by Drath

    You idiots dismissing Jones because Trek music all sounds alike have no idea what you're doing. He was the guy fighting to have more adventurous music in Star Trek. He scored the Borg two parter, possibly the only episodes people remember the music from (and until now one of the only Soundtrack albums sold for Next Generation). What music was worth remembering from ST:TNG was made by him. Maybe you lot remember him better for scoring Ducktales, but I guarantee you that it's big a news (and a big FUCK YOU to Rick Berman) that he's getting this treatment.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 8:29 p.m. CST

    a bit excessive, no?

    by Gungan Slayer

    I mean, it's a TV show. The music in TV shows really isn't that varied.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 8:46 p.m. CST

    Hated his work - made the worst episodes... even worse

    by daggor

    His music was full of synth flutes and windchimes and crap. The more generic music in the later, better episodes of ST:TNG was more appropriate, and is more iconic.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 8:46 p.m. CST

    Drath, You Are-

    by Ironhorse

    right on the money. ST:TNG lost some great talent over the years that negatively impacted the music, visual effects and later cinematography. Ron Jones' ST:TNG music was fun, energetic and creative. After season four his absence was clearly heard for the worse. Compare his Best of Both Worlds soundtrack to Dennis McCarthy's ST:DS9 series opener Wolf 359 music. No comparison. Imagine if Jones would have been the composer instead? Not knocking McCarthy so much as I am Rick Berman. Still, after Jones was gone series Trek music became extremely constipated. Glad to see his contribution is finally being acknowledged. Suck it, Berman.

    cool for the big fans

    by Bouncy X

    i liked the show but not nearly enough for something like this. now if they ever do this for X-Files, Buffy and/or Angel, Alias or Lost then i'd definately grab it. but i'm sure the trekkies who do get a hold will be quite pleased. its rare enough to get ONE full episode but 40?

    This show had music?

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    I thought it was just creepy dead silence over those weird tan colored sets, seen through that shitty vhs picture quality, except for those little musical bits that play real for two seconds to signal it's about to cut to commercial. This show is just damn unsettling to watch for me for some reason.

  • Aug. 31, 2010, 9:59 p.m. CST

    The FSM monthly Star Trek set is a labor of love. Lukas Kendall has released some amazing scores recently, including Black Sunday and Star Trek III. And for those who aren't aware, John Barry's score for The Deep was released by Intrada on Monday as a limited edition and they're apparently going fast.

    Roddenberry had a brillant idea in using...

    by AsimovLives

    ... the opening theme music that Jerry Goldsmith composed for STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE as the theme and leitmotif for the TV show STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Really good idea. Goldsmith was always very good for Star trek, a franchise that was very close to his heart. He had even been inicially chosen to compose for the TOS, but he had a busy schedule and couldn't accept the job, and his friend and collaborator Alexander Courage got the gig instead.

    Batman TAS Score

    by Kentucky Colonel

    La La Land Records have (had?) a great two CD set of music from Batman TAS, and there is the soundtrack to Mask of the Phantasam, too. Both reside on my CD shelf and in my Zune. Recommended!

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 8:38 a.m. CST

    Some facts

    by Lenonn

    1. The reason Sulu is on the final disc is that disc holds the soundtracks for two computer games that Jones scored: Starfleet Academy and Starfleet Command. 2. Warners is evidently the one holding up a volume two of Batman The Animated Series music. 3. An X-Files four disc set is being worked on as we speak - all music from throughout the run of the show - current estimates place it's release at later this fall/early this winter.

    TNG was shot on film,

    by RETURN_of_FETT

    It was just EDITED on video tape. Also the effects were rendered at 480i. Same with Voyager and DS9. I'm assuming the effects could be rendered at 1080p, but I don't know that for sure. They may have to be redone as they were in TOS, which would be fine with me.</p><p>Apparently there was a test of 2 episodes recreated in this way to see how much it would cost, but I don't know what the verdict was.</p><p>I am Quite sure Paramount will eventually do this for all 3 shows edited on tape, but it may be a couple of more years to get better penetration of Blu-ray in homes. They're not going to pass up that cash cow even if it costs them up front. It's not just about Blu-ray, they need them for rebroadcast in HD as well.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 1:04 p.m. CST

    I'm assuming the order will be...

    by RETURN_of_FETT

    The animated series (essentially season 4 of TOS), followed by Enterprise. Again, I'm totally fine with this. Althoguh I like TNG, it just rings a little hollow to me compared to some of the other shows. and I really hate Wesley Crusher. I had pretty much given up on Voyager midway through season 2 though.

    TNG

    by rogueleader66

    Well, don't get me started on that one. It had some good episodes, but for me, overall, it was.....meh at best. I absolutely HATED Wesley Crusher, since when does Roddenberry need to pander to kids? If he absolutely had to do that, at least make it an APPEALING character. Wesley was not appealing in any way. Arrogant whiny little fuck. Sure he was smart, but so fucking what.<P>Anyways, I gotta a bit off there. I feel that over the course of...what was it...7 seasons? They should have had many more top quality stories and for me they were just average at best, with the occasional stand out. Frakes is another one, he is a terrible actor. His character was also lame. Passed up promotion after promotion, holding out for the Enterprise. Lame. He ends the show 7 years later in the exact same place he started.<P>I could go on and on, but I can't lol. Suffice to say, TNG in the end is just a big disappointment for me. Could have been great, but winds up being just ok.

    Roger Ebert's Great Movies essay on APOCALYPSE NOW

    by ColonelFatheart

    Francis Ford Coppola's film "Apocalypse Now" was inspired by Heart of Darkness, a novel by Joseph Conrad about a European named Kurtz who penetrated to the farthest reaches of the Congo and established himself like a god. A boat sets out to find him, and on the journey the narrator gradually loses confidence in orderly civilization; he is oppressed by the great weight of the jungle all around him, a pitiless Darwinian testing ground in which each living thing tries every day not to be eaten.<p> What is found at the end of the journey is not Kurtz so much as what Kurtz found: that all of our days and ways are a fragile structure perched uneasily atop the hungry jaws of nature that will thoughtlessly devour us. A happy life is a daily reprieve from this knowledge.<p>A week ago I was in Calcutta, where I saw mile upon square mile of squatter camps in which hundreds of thousands live generation after generation in leaky huts of plastic, cardboard and scrap metal, in poverty so absolute it is impossible to see any hope of escape. I do not mean to equate the misery of those hopeless people with a movie; that would be indecent. But I was deeply shaken by what I saw, and realized how precious and precarious is a happy life. And in such a mood I watched "Apocalypse Now" and came to the scene where Col. Kurtz (Marlon Brando) tells Capt. Willard (Martin Sheen) about "the horror."<p> Kurtz is a decorated hero, one of the best soldiers in the Army, who has created a jungle sanctuary upriver inside enemy territory, and rules Montagnard tribesmen as his private army. He tells Willard about a day when his Special Forces men inoculated the children of a village against polio: "This old man came running after us and he was crying, he couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile, a pile of little arms. . . ."<p>What Kurtz learned is that the Viet Cong were willing to go to greater lengths to win: "Then I realized they were stronger than we. They have the strength, the strength to do that. If I had 10 divisions of those men, then our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling, without passion, without judgment." This is the "horror" that Kurtz has found, and it threatens to envelop Willard, too.<p> The whole movie is a journey toward Willard's understanding of how Kurtz, one of the Army's best soldiers, penetrated the reality of war to such a depth that he could not look any longer without madness and despair.<p> The film has one of the most haunting endings in cinema, a poetic evocation of what Kurtz has discovered, and what we hope not to discover for ourselves. The river journey creates enormous anticipation about Kurtz, and Brando fulfills it. When the film was released in 1979, his casting was criticized and his enormous paycheck of $1 million was much discussed, but it's clear he was the correct choice, not only because of his stature as an icon, but because of his voice, which enters the film from darkness or half-light, repeating the words of T.S. Eliot's despairing "The Hollow Men." That voice sets the final tone of the film.<p> Another crucial element in the ending is the photojournalist (Dennis Hopper) who has somehow found Kurtz's camp and stayed there, stoned, as a witness. He blathers to Willard that Kurtz is "a poet-warrior in the classic sense" and "we're all his children." In the photographer's spaced-out ravings we hear disconnected snatches of the poetry he must have heard Kurtz reciting: If you can keep your head when all about you . . . I should have been a pair of ragged claws, scuttling across the floor of a silent sea. . . ." The photographer is the guide, the clown, the fool, providing the balance between Willard and Kurtz.<p> Why has "Apocalypse Now" been so long bedeviled by rumors that Coppola was not happy with this ending? At the film's premiere at Cannes, I saw the confusion begin. Coppola originally intended to show the movie as a 70mm roadshow with no credits (they would be printed in a booklet). But the 35mm release would need end titles. After he was finished filming on the huge set of the Kurtz compound, Coppola was required by the Philippine government to destroy it, and he photographed it being blown up. He decided to use this footage over his closing 35mm credits, even though (this is crucial) he did not intend the destruction of the compound as an alternative "ending" to the film. Alas, confusion about the endings spread from Cannes into movie folklore, and most people thought that by "ending" he meant all of the material involving Kurtz. In the 20th anniversary DVD release, Coppola patiently explains all of this once again.<p> In any event, seen again now at a distance of 20 years, "Apocalypse Now" is more clearly than ever one of the key films of the century. Most films are lucky to contain a single great sequence. "Apocalypse Now" strings together one after another, with the river journey as the connecting link. The best is the helicopter attack on a Vietnam village, led by Col. Kilgore (Robert Duvall), whose choppers use loudspeakers at top volume to play Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" as they swoop down on a yard full of schoolchildren. Duvall won an Oscar nomination for his performance and its unforgettable line, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." His emptiness is frightening: A surfing fanatic, he agrees to the attack only to liberate a beach said to offer great waves ("Charlie don't surf").<p> There is also the sequence where the patrol boat stops a small fishing boat with a family on board. A little girl makes a sudden dash, and the jumpy machine-gunner (a young Laurence Fishburne) opens fire, wiping out the entire family. It turns out the girl was running for her puppy. The mother is not quite dead. The boat chief (Albert Hall) wants to take her for medical treatment. Willard puts a bullet into her; nothing can delay his mission. He and "Chief" are the only two seasoned military men on the boat, trying to do things by the book; later, in a scene with peculiar power, the chief is astonished to be killed by a spear.<p> For me the most remarkable visuals in the film occur when Chef (Fredric Forrest), one of Willard's crew members, insists on venturing into the forest in search of mangos. Willard can't stop him, so he joins him. The great cinematographer Vittorio Storaro shows them as little human specks at the foot of towering trees, and this is a Joseph Conrad moment, showing how nature dwarfs us.<p> The rock 'n' roll soundtrack opens and closes with "The End" by the Doors, and includes disc jockeys on transistor radios ("Good morning, Vietnam!"). The music underlines surrealistic moments, as when Lance (Sam Bottoms), one of Willard's crew, water-skis behind the boat. It also shows how the soldiers try to use the music of home, and booze and drugs, to ease their loneliness and apprehension.<p> Other important films such as "Platoon," "The Deer Hunter," "Full Metal Jacket" and "Casualties of War" take their own approaches to Vietnam. Once at the Hawaii Film Festival I saw five North Vietnamese films about the war. (They never mentioned "America," only "the enemy," and one director told me, "It is all the same--we have been invaded by China, France, the U.S. . . .") But "Apocalypse Now" is the best Vietnam film, one of the greatest of all films, because it pushes beyond the others, into the dark places of the soul. It is not about war so much as about how war reveals truths we would be happy never to discover.<p> In a way I cannot quite explain, my thoughts since Calcutta prepared me to understand the horror that Kurtz found. If we are lucky, we spend our lives in a fool's paradise, never knowing how close we skirt the abyss. What drives Kurtz mad is his discovery of this.<p> Note: In my original review of "Apocalypse Now" I quoted the French director Francois Truffaut: "I demand that a film express either the joy of making cinema or the agony of making cinema. I am not at all interested in anything in between." Coppola's joy and agony are revealed in "Hearts of Darkness," a 1991 documentary by Fax Bahr and George Hickenlooper about the making of "Apocalypse Now," with personal footage and journal entries by Coppola's wife, Eleanor, who made secret recordings of Coppola expressing his doubts and discouragement as the project threatened to swamp him. <p>http://tinyurl.com/33vyt5e

    Desson Howe's review of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

    by ColonelFatheart

    If Christmas is in jeopardy, if Santa Claus is being forcibly prevented from his annual duties, you can be sure the kids will pay attention. And since Tim Burton's animated fantasy, "The Nightmare Before Christmas," is such a state-of-the-art wonder show, you can be sure the adults will be engaged too.<p> This brilliant combination of stop-motion animation, three-dimensional sets and superbly imaginative graphics, brings animation to new peaks. Burton, whose inventive, delightfully haunted mind put so much zest into "Pee-wee's Big Adventure," "Beetlejuice," "Batman" and "Edward Scissorhands," has done it again.<p> Here's the story: Jack Skellington, Halloweentown's Pumpkin King, is bored with his annual duties -- arranging the usual scares and surprises for Halloween. When he chances upon Christmastown, a far cry from his own world, Jack decides he can run this tinselly convention himself. After boning up on things Christmas (he even tries to study the holiday in algebraic terms), Jack dons a white beard and red coat, harnesses a team of ghostly reindeer and heads for the rooftops of the world. While Jack does the yuletide rounds, his pumpkin townsfolk hold the real (and thoroughly disconsolate) Santa prisoner.<p> Concerned parents can be assured that, ultimately, things will be put right. Jack will realize who really ought to be stuffing himself down these chimneys, and that you're supposed to give presents that charm -- not petrify -- the children. Speaking of scaring kids, it's hard to assess how the very young will receive this. To this grown-up reviewer, Jack and his Halloweentown collection of strange friends are oddly charming, from the (literally) two-faced mayor to the trick or treat trio called Lock, Shock and Barrel. And when he delivers icky presents to children (such as a severed head, or a striped snake that swallows Christmas trees), Jack (with whom the viewer identifies) is genuinely unaware of his transgressions. If Jack's a bad skeleton, he's an innocently bad skeleton.<p> The best thing about "Nightmare," obviously, is its visual world and -- behind that -- 10 great songs composed by Danny Elfman (who collaborated with Burton for "Batman" and also wrote the theme tune for "The Simpsons"). Burton, a graduate of the Disney factory (he worked on "The Black Cauldron," among many films, and made a memorable short called "Frankenweenie"), fills the movie with unforgettable compositions: Jack's poetic posings against the moon, for one thing, are aesthetically stunning.<p> Burton also creates Grimmly personable characters. Jack is a mischievous, skeletal Beau Brummell in his pin-striped, spider-webbed suit. His faithful dog Zero is actually the ghost of a dog with a glowing, jack-o'-lantern nose. Jack's love interest, Sally, is a rag doll who can disengage her body parts at will by picking the thread that holds her together.<p> With Burton, there's a sense of a bad-boy genius at work, as if Oscar Wilde had been raised on E.T.A Hoffmann, the Brothers Grimm and the expressionistic German films of the prewar period such as "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari." He never raises his work above the heads of children -- which is true of all his work. He pulls adult minds down to the surreal darkness of childish imagination -- where the real nightmares are. But through Burton's eyes, these dark dreamscapes aren't bad places at all. In fact, they're quite wonderful. <p>http://tinyurl.com/2agw2ss

    Variety review of ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES

    by ColonelFatheart

    Escape from the Planet of the Apes is an excellent film, almost as good as the original Planet of the Apes. Arthur Jacobs' production is marked by an outstanding script, using some of the original Pierre Boulle novel characters; excellent direction by Don Taylor; and superior performances from a cast headed by encoring Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter.<p> In the previous film one will recall that the world seemed to be ending in nuclear holocaust. Something that trivial never stopped a good writer, so this film opens with Hunter, McDowall and Sal Mineo arriving on earth in a space vehicle.<p> After about half of the film's literate, suspenseful, delightful and thought-provoking 97 minutes, the story emphasis segues from broad comedic antics to a rather horrifying dilemma. Eric Braeden, scientific advisor to US President William Windom, suggests that, if indeed in our future apes would subdue humans, why not remove that distant threat by aborting the life of the child of McDowall and Hunter?<p>http://tinyurl.com/2dxesgd

    by rogueleader66

    Even after Wesley had left, the show just never did it for me. The writing, IMO was just too inconsistent and so many times it felt like 50 minutes of buildup to a quick resolution. I hated that.<P>To each his own, if you liked it Sixies, that's cool, I know many people enjoyed the series. Don't get me wrong, I am in no way saying the show was 7 seasons of lame, not at all. Every season had some good episodes, but for me, the good ones were outweighed by the bad ones. Overall TNG was a mediocre, sometimes wonderful but mostly disappointing sci-fi show.

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    Man, I love APOCALYPSE NOW. Damn good article. <BR><BR>I'm especially glad that Ebert brought up one of my favorite scenes --specifically, when Clean takes out the villagers on the sampan as a panicking woman makes a quick dash towards a suspicious barrel followed by the heart-rending moment when Chef discovers to his horror that the basket contained only a puppy. After Willard shoots the injured woman, in one of the most memorable freakouts of many freakouts, Chef sobs, "Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck them!" <BR><BR>I recall being astonished at Sheen's superb performance the first time I saw the film only to be utterly BLOWN AWAY by Brando's incomparable performance--which made Sheen's look run of the mill in comparison.<BR><BR>This is quite simply one of the best movies ever made. However, APOCALYPSE NOW REDUX was--imo--a terrible mistake. Like the Director's Cut of AMADEUS, the longer version actually manages to ruin a classic film with bloated, clumsily paced scenes best left on the cutting room floor.

    One reason I always cite for liking D-Heart

    by rogueleader66

    Having been a D & D player for a long time, it portrayed Dragons as I knew them from the game....as intelligent creatures, capable of more than just mindless destruction, who could communicate with man and sometimes work side by side with him. Say what you want about the film, but it gave me something I wanted but had never seen in a Dragon movie before, for that, I can be forgiving of its shortcomings.

Fucker never made a good movie, never! And really, if i had been a D&D fan, i would hate DRAGONHEART even more.<br><br>As for TNG, i think you are too harsh on it. While i'm not exactly a fan of the show, and i really know little of it other then what i saw from scatered episodes form different seasons, the thing is, the show was anchored in one of the best fictional creations in american TV history: Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Any actor inthat role would had looked good, but then they had the masterstroke to hire Patrick Stewart to the role, which in hindsight must have been one of the most genious decision in american filmed entertaiment. Picard and Steward are the core and heart of the show, and no show can be bad with such a thing form which everything revolves around. And from what i understand, the show does have some really outstanding episodes which can match in quality some of the best stuff from the original show. I don't find it hard to believe.

    ... thanks a lot for your post quoting that Roger Ebert article about APOCALYPSE NOW. The man put into words some of my own thoughs about the movie, and he partially describes why i love so much that movie and why it's one of my top 3 favorite movie of all time. And what Ebert said about his quote from Francois Truffaut comenting of what he wanted from a film should ring true and to the core of the soul of any real true movie geek. Definatly, any and all movies i love they do present in them both the passion/love and/or the agony of filmmaking. Truffaut said it as it is. I call that a movie having a soul. It makes all the difference. It's what seperates true film quality from false acessements of "good" from lazy self-indulgent movie geeks with little to no standards.

    Wow, not a Cohen fan I see.

They had some very good episodes that do match the quality of TOS.....SOME..(The Inner Light may be one of the best written and well done episodes in ST history). It's just that for me, it was not enough. Like I already have said, the show overall was ok, not terrible, but far from what I would call 7 seasons of quality entertainment.

    it's at the B'ham liberry. I'm pretty sure they have a few EX MACHINAs as well. Hooray! <p> I love new stuff. And seriously, if no one has, Moore's SWAMP THING run is the ONLY time a damn comic book has EVER creeped me out. There is some messed up, creepy stuff in there. Plus, the introduction of John Constantine, and the total (and totally awesome) reinvention of who/what Swampy actually is.

    Moore's SWAMP THING was a thing of beauty (HAW HAW). Seriously, though. Who can forget Swampy's final confrontation with a much changed Matt Cable and his valiant descent into the badlands and--ultimately--hell? This was real, graphic horror of a kind rarely seen (and, never, I think seen so magnificently pulled off in a comic format up to that point). <BR><BR>And the "American Gothic" storyline. Brrr. So friggin' great...

    Gilliam is not just good at directing girl children. The kid in TIME BANDITS is great. Gilliam is simply very good at directing children as well as adults. And if you read the coments made by actors, all of them are in awe of gilliam. With one single exception: Lena Headey. but then again, she doesn't seem to be a praticullary smart woman, since he claimed that Zack Snyder is a better director then Gilliam after her work in 300. That woman has some serious mental problems. Yeah, too bad that she wasn't the first choice for her role in THE BROTHERS GRIMM and Gilliam acepted reluctantly because his first choice was Samantha Morton. Guess what, Morton is by far a much, much better actor then Headey. Deal with it, shallow empty headed girl! God, what an ass Lena Headey must be, and i'm not comenting on her shapely ass, but she as a person. Hardly a brainiac, that's for sure.

    It's an aquired taste, Mac. Not for everyone.

    by TedKordLives

    I got into it thru a friend (a girl), and was lucky enough to tutel under one of the best storytellers I've ever met. He made each game seem as real as if it were actually happening. We did D&D, superhero stuff, secret agent stuff, you name it. <P> Ah, good times.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 8:15 p.m. CST

    Aw, Mac, you're probably not alone.

    by TedKordLives

    That reminds me of Time's cover story this week: 'Is America Islamophobic?' <P> Well, gee, Time Magazine, could it be that our media has made us Islamophobic? I mean, have you seen TRUE LIES? [shudder]

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 8:17 p.m. CST

    I tried a black ops RPG once

    by MacReady452

    it was cool in concept but it lacked in the storytelling as you said. It was never laid out for me properly and the story was nowhere to be found. I blame it all on my Dungeon Master. Then we started drinking. Drunk 15 year olds don't grasp the RPG concept well.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 8:47 p.m. CST

    You ever see LE SAMOURAI, Flick?

    by ColonelFatheart

    Ebert compared THE AMERICAN to it in his review today. If I wasn't already excited to see it, that would have made me so.

    by TedKordLives

    I just read Capone's review of THE AMERICAN, and now my interest is piqued. Doesn't sound anything like I expected. Sounds more like Clooney's CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND than anything else, and I loved that film.

    You know, whenever I think of that line, I don't actually think of it in situ/in the film, but the sample - And WHERE-And WHERE, is the Batman? - as in the Prince Batdance song. What can I say, I'm an old (in both senses) Prince acolyte...

    What's happening, chaps! <P> D., Moron is right! I really can't believe someone would defend such a thoroughly bland movie with such vigor. It boggles my mind. <P> Whitey, I hate to say it, but my enjoyment of Prince begins and ends with the Batdance. Tho I did dance with an incredibly hot p.o.a. to 1999 at my prom, which was also enjoyable.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 10:11 p.m. CST

    I do believe I'll be seeing THE AMERICAN

    by Fuzzyjefe

    Friday evening. With da former Mrs. Fuzzy. I've read a few positive reviews from those I trust: Ebert, Capone, Drewiarty. I like Clooney as much as a straight man can, and the movie sounds intensely subdued, if that makes any sense.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 10:22 p.m. CST

    Heya Jefe

    by TedKordLives

    You read Capone's review? He really liked it. I'm starting to come around to it, but I'm still way more excited about MACHETE.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 10:24 p.m. CST

    Yassir, I sure did Ted.

    by Fuzzyjefe

    And I wanna see Machete too. But there's now way the lady is gonna want to see that instead. No. Way. <p> But you can bet your bottom dollar that the first movie with DANNY MOTHERFUCKIN' TREJO headlining will get my money. Oh yes.

  • Sept. 1, 2010, 10:28 p.m. CST

    by D.Vader

    Sorry, was refuting Fett point by point in the Clash talkback. I think I'm making very thoughtful, valid points; he's making childish assumptions and comebacks. <p>Whatever. I'm wasting time on him. I've got 2 more long days on this commercial with the director of Marmaduke. Which is less time for me to plan my next short film/commercial for a contest that I need to shoot next week for the deadline =(.

    by D.Vader

    The original girl, who at first backed out, was able to do it in the end. Unfortunately, her backing out caused me to not invite another girl, the Laurel to her Hardy so to speak, to drive the 2 hrs into town for the other role. <p>So I had to work fast and use a girl who works at the location I was using (she was once a tv news reporter) as the other actress. Unfortunately, she was only available for 15 minutes. But she was a pro who learned her lines fast and acted them well, so I was able to pull off the initial, important scene I needed to setup the rest of the short. <p> I got lucky, what can I say =).

    Vades, skimmed over your argument in the Titans back. You make some good points, although I did not see the film, but as stated before, based on all I have heard from you and others, It isn't worth my time. Besides Bland Worthington sounds like he gave the same perfromance he gave in T:S and Avatar, so If I wanna see that, I'll watch Avatar again.<P>Caught up a little on last nights events.Ted...i was also a hard core D & D player for many years, also did the spy thing, wester, and sci-fi RP games. ALl fun, but D & D is still tops.<P>Wow, Purple Rain, I saw that like 5 times in the theater. I really liked that movie, and the music was Prince at the top of his game.

    by leo54304

    Read Nick Fury:Secret Warriors #19, last ride of the howling commando's last night.<br> <br> That issue had so much better dialogue, fully developed characters, action than Stallones attempt at recapturing the glory of 80s action flicks. <br> <br> This issue also showed the brutality of combat, personal sacrifice and what a true band of brothers are. Not the fratboy buddys image Stallone went with. Along with the crappy dialogue.<br> <br> If you miss the Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster, Steve McQueen movies of old, pick up Secret Warriors #19.

    by RETURN_of_FETT

    He read an article about how Clash was changed in editing and with reshoots, so now he thinks he's this wise fucking sage regarding how the film SHOULD have gone. he thinks that instead of being an action/adventure film, it shoyuld have been more like What Dreams May Come.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:49 a.m. CST

    Ok, here is a little lesson for those of you who may have missed

    by rogueleader66

    Jaws....may appear to be about hunting a killer shark, but guess what? It is a totally character driven film. The "talking" and "family stuff" is there for a specific reason. The movie is driven by the three main characters and how they deal with the situation they are in, each in a different way. They all have different motivations for hunting this shark, thus making them all the more interesting. We care about these guys. Take away the "talking" and "family" stuff and just have three guys hunting a shark? Lame to the highest degree.<P>Ever see Deep Blue Sea? Yea well guess what, that's what happens when you don't have character development. Did anyone give a shit what happened to ANYONE in that movie? Nope, because you did not give a damn about any of them. Some movies may not need you to care about the characters, but Jaws does, because that is what the movie is about, those three guys, not the shark.<P>Class dismissed.

    by MacReady452

    Titans was what happens after my dog eats tinnsel during the holidays. The result is glittery shit. The original is loved for it's flaws but the new one was ruined. The whole conception of the quest is tucked. Why change what worked, and what was essentially irrelevant. The plot is merely a device to deliver the action. Guy wants girl and sets off to win her favor. Done. Moving on. THE NEW ONE FUCKS THIS UP, thus creating an inforgivable shit pile no amount of fx could justify. Discussion over.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:55 a.m. CST

    Bag, his probalems don't have as much to do with character motiv

    by RETURN_of_FETT

    As they do with things that don't happen in the film. I don't mean character moments that have been hacked out, I mean things like "Perseus never even uses the scorpion sheild. He uses some other sheild to see Medusa's reflection".</p><p>See, now that's just plain WRONG. He DOES use the scorpion sheild and in fact it IS the sheild he uses to see Medusa's reflection.</p><p>MY problem with that scene is "How the fuck does a scorpion hide sheild have a reflective interior?". That would seem like a valid complaint. MY complaint happens in the film, his doesn't.</p><p>That would be like me saying "I don't understand why a purple dragon swoops down out of the sky and kills the Kraken. That's just lazy writing." See what I mean? Attack the film for what it actually DID, not for what you mistakenly remember it doing.

    one of my fav scenes in JAWS

    by MacReady452

    is when Brody is on the phone early in the movie and his wife and kid are talking in the background. It is such a real moment. They don't fade the secondary conversation away to focus on the "important call". It creates a REAL world feeling in the movie. The wife and kid don't just go away. They are still there, still important. THAT is why the movie is so good. It seems small but it is one of the most significant scenes in the film for me.

    I'm pretty sure Chop's out of his/her mind, but I also think that s/he's (to quote Nietzsche) beyond good and evil. <BR><BR>But--basically--s/he remains a mystery to us all. And, fuck, has Chop ever been busy lately!<BR><BR>As for TITANS--never was a big fan of the original, so never really interested in the remake. The storyline was always pretty shitty imo, which is just astounding given the literary richness of Greek mythology. <BR><BR>Start TITANS all the fuck over, I says, and let Neil Gaiman write the fucker with a completely different plot.

    by Fuzzyjefe

    I've read Pullman's HIS DARK MATERIALS. Thoroughly enjoyed 'em too. Too bad they screwed the pooch with THE GOLDEN COMPASS. At least they got Iorek the bear right. <p> Speaking of Gaiman, I just read ELSEWHERE that Eric Kripke (the man behind SUPERNATURAL) is trying to get SANDMAN developed as a television show. The good news is that one of his 'conditions' is that it must have Gaiman's blessing or INVOLVEMENT, or he'll drop it. Coolness. <p> Flicka---I'll second the notion that you really gotta give SANDMAN another chance. I wasn't a huge fan of a lot of the art, but it changes from storyline to storyline, and some of it is really freakin' gorgeous later on. And damn, the writing is just so incredible that it really doesn't matter what it looks like. There's a reason it's so beloved so many years after the last book was written.

    by white_vader

    You know, I can't remember if McKean did internal stuff on Sandman. I'm pretty sure he did a couple of the annuals. He also did an awesome issue (cover and internal) of Hellblazer called "Hold Me". Which I got Gaiman to sign. <p> But hey, I can't check all that because remember my tale of woe about losing all my uninterrupted runs of Sandman and other Vertigo titles from water damage?

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:57 a.m. CST

    Yea nilla it was

    by rogueleader66

    The new one coming out in Dec is a Jedi spoof. Why they called the first one blue harvest I don't know, Seth McFarlane is a weed smoker, that may explain a lot.<P>Anyways, off to my afternoon shift, talk to you all in a bit.

    by white_vader

    Like I said, Jedi. The tagline was "Horror beyond imagination" or something like that from memory. They used it to keep lollygaggers and rubbernecks away while shooting. Didn't work for long. Which is why I didn't get the Family Guy SW spoof being named that. Then again, I don't get the Something Something Dark Side one either. <p> Right, this time I mean it. Laterz.

    ☆☆RETRO-RIGHT-BRAIN CINEMA☆☆™

    by Six Demon Bag

    ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES 1971.<P> Directed by Don Taylor. <P> Starring Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Bradford Dillman, Natalie Trundy, Eric Braeden, and Ricardo Montalban. <P> The second best, by far, of THE PLANET OF THE APES series of films is now nominated as a possible Pantheon inductee at AICN. I can hear the snobbier of The Pedalbackers sneering from a safe distance. Certainly, it might seem out of place sitting next to PATHS OF GLORY or, even KING KONG, and it'd obviously seem out of place as an inductee preceding the original classic, but, make no mistake, you're gonna induct far less worthy titles over time. Odd to dismiss it out-of-hand, considering this is the era when genre pictures with any iota of "depth" are routinely acclaimed. <P>How do you continue to sequelize a concept when the previous film (the truly ill-conceived BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES) ended with the destruction of the planet? Well, when you have time travel and paradoxes as a given from the beginning, you can do almost anything, but no one could've predicted what the film-makers would do, when they turned the whole kaboodle on its hairy head.<P> OK, you can nit-pick this plot specific, if you want: Genius ape "Milo," played by James Dean's BFF Sal Mineo, somehow found one of the U.S. astronauts' spaceships out in The Forbidden Zone and had time to get it in working order while the gorillas were smacking down on skinless mutants. It's a throwaway explanation, and in the history of sci-fi silliness it's really no more preposterous than invading peoples' subconsciouses and building M.C. Escher architecture there. As an excuse to get "Zira" and "Cornelius," the hippie chimpanzees from the first, only briefly used in the second, back to 1970s America, it works, and the opening shot of three astronauts poking out of their escape hatch, removing their helmets to reveal furry chimp faces, was a shock nearly as bold and exciting as the first sight of gorillas on horseback in the first film. <P>Blockbusteritis has brainwashed us into expecting sequels must perpetually up the ante, action and thrill-wise, but ESCAPE takes the less-used route and unexpectedly ups the ante in a whole 'nother way. Stranding apes among humans, as opposed to astronauts among apes, positions the film as a more traditional invading-alien/monster movie, but, while mixing in elements of romantic comedy and political thriller, writer Paul Dehn preserves - enhances, even - the racial-political philosophy of Rod Serling's concept. A return to the concept of misunderstood monster, as classic an idea as Frankenstein's Creation or The Wolfman, updated with a contemporary wardrobe and modern concerns. Women's equality, racial prejudice, political dishonesty, pacifism, even, ethnic cleansing. Heavy issues, deftly embraced by a film about talking apes. More skillfully handled here than even in the magnificent first chapter, which got a little preachy in its third act before recovering with a terrific ending. <P> ESCAPE's an original twist on the classic immigrant tale, as well. The Other is fascinating as long as it wears our tie-dyed dresses and drinks our "grape juice plus" - as long as it assimilates. Once The Other challenges our preconceived notions of superiority, however, things get quite a bit dicier. All of this without once resorting to shouting, "Hey! Look at me! I'm an apartheid metaphor over here!" With Eric Braeden's conservative government bureaucrat as the villain, representing an entire generation's distrust of the establishment in the pre-Watergate era, the ape characters become, for the first time in the series, really, heroes for the audience. The jeopardy they're in becomes unbearable. Their ultimate fates, horrifying.<P> This one is emotional heart of the whole saga. And, considering the saga in question involves actors slumming around in plastic prosthetics, its effectiveness is surprising and rewarding for those who are willing. <P>★★★★☆ ¼ <br> (4.25/5)

    Sixies, we're on the verge of seeing the Republican Party, a version of which that has embraced aggressive ignorance and extremism as "the mainstream," reclaiming at least the House of Representatives. The people who'll vote in the midterm elections won't care about oil rigs or wars or anything, they're concerned either about their (lack of) employment or the fact that a half-breed illegitimate black Muslin is pretending to be president of these here United States. <p>Right now, America is so in love with its own demise, it's willing to put a more extreme, volatile and stupid edition of the party that largely created the multitude of messes we're in back in power.

    The Tea Party is actually destroying the Republican Party

    by Stabby

    in the long run. The racist reactionary values that fuel the Teabaggers are representative of its demographical makeup being mostly white old heads.

We sat her down together and told her effectively that the school drug programs were teaching her bullshit about weed and that most of her friends' parents, at least the ones we knew, all smoked weed...<p>She cried a little and had a "there's no Santa" moment, then she got over it and we never had a drug problem with her after that, because she knew we would be strait with her about other drugs...

    I always admired that choice with the 2 conversations. I'm sure there are plenty of examples. The other kind of similar "choice" like that is in Reservoir Dogs. The scene when Mr. White and Mr. Orange go to the bathroom to clean up, smoke and try to figure out what is going on. QT intentionally leaves the camera at the far end of the hallway. Harvey and Steve are freaking out down the hall and through a doorway and we (as the viewer) are left 20 feet away from the scene. Only after watching the movie 2 or 3 times did I find myself saying, what the fuck, I wanna BE IN THERE. It is this desire he fills the viewer with just by simply keeping his distance with the camera. It drives you crazy with anticipation and tension.

    by rogueleader66

    Only bad thing right now is my sister is not speaking to me. I wrote her a pretty scathing email a few days ago after she, once again, tried to tell me how to behave on Facebook. First off, she is younger than me, second off, I said nothing wrong, and third, she has done this one too many times.<P>So I wrote her an email telling her I was pissed off and instead of acting like my mother, be supportive and back me up instead of always telling me what NOT to do. I invited her to a little birthday thing for me for next weekend, and all she said was she couldn't make it. It may sound odd, but I could tell just by the tone of her email that she is pissed at me. Too bad.<P>Anyways, enough of that nonsense, it's time to go!!!!! I'll be back sometime later pebrews.<P>Peace and chicken grease/

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 7:26 p.m. CST

    Well, Jefe...

    by TedKordLives

    I guess because it's so universally lauded, my kneejerk reaction was to dislike it. Honestly, I've never read any of it, and it's here on the shelves for me to read for free. I like Neil Gaiman's novels, but the art in Sandman just puts me off. Also, as I've said, I'm more of a tights n fights kinda guy for the most part. <P>So, in summation, the art and the heaps of praise are probably the two factors that keep me from reading or enjoying it.

    The art kept me away from Sandman too, Ted.

    Damn, Vades.

    by TedKordLives

    Thought I had someone in my corner for a minute. <P>But nooooooo, I have to irrationially hate Sandman all by myself. Maybe someday I'll check it out. If nothing else, it'd give me something to talk to geek chicks about.

    Sandman had a great serial killer convention story

    by leo54304

    In one of the early issues of the book. It was about same time death was introduced. <br> <br> Serial killers convention issue was funny as it had panels for the attendees to participate in and a rule that had to be followed: No killing 3 days before or after the convention (Or something like that) within 50 miles. Course someone couldn't fight the urge.

It really picks up at the end of the first trade, with the 24 HOURS story...that is some MESSED..UP...SHIT in there. <p> And as for the art...Kelley Jones, Michael Kaluta, Charles Vess, Bryan Talbot, Jill Thompson, and Mark Hempel all contribute later. There is some GORGEOUS stuff. I'll admit I don't like a lot of the stuff early on, especially the Sam Kieth issues.

    Fuzz the secret humiliation doesn't bother me.

    by MacReady452

    Flick said he had a prize if anyone would reveal an embarrassing story about themselves. I told the tale of when I was in co-ed gym class and got pantsed, sweats and underwear all. After correcting my situation I proceeded to chase, tackle and begin the process of removing the kids jeans(who the fuck wears jeans to gym class). Only after the teacher forcibly rmoved me from the kid did I realize just how gay trying to take a dudes pants off was. Blind rage is a hell of a thing. Anyway...enjoy your tilde.

    I'm still waiting for my roomie to bring home the new Secret Warriors, tho. I got all excited after seeing your rave review on here, but since neither of us pick up as many titles anymore, it'll prolly be another week before he gets it...

    And for all you capes-n-tights guys: turns out that the old JLA villain Dr Destiny's power crystal thingy was actually Dream's ruby; he had transferred a lot of his power into it. That was how the Dr could affect dreams. <p> Ol' Morpheus actually visits Scott Free & the Martian Manhunter in an early issue for some info as he is trying to reclaim his property.

    Yeah Ted

    by Fuzzyjefe

    that's ol' Sam Kieth for you. I can take his VERY stylized stuff on THE MAXX, but his work on established characters is TEH SUCK.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8 p.m. CST

    Yep. Awful.

    by TedKordLives

    Sorry.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:03 p.m. CST

    Usually, Jefe, you're right.

    by TedKordLives

    He did do a decent one-off issue of the Incredible Hulk that had Mr.Fixit (gray hulk)squaring off against Mr.Hyde on a train. But his style sorta fit the mood of the story, and this was a few years after his Sandman stuff, I believe.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 8:03 p.m. CST

    Agreed on Kieth...

    This weekend at my second job, one of the girls said she and boyfriend were going to have pizza. We started giving her shit, that pizza really meant sex. Asked if she liked her pizza with extra sausage, if she liked pizza in the morning, etc. <br> <br> So the codeword for some of us at work for sex is now pizza.

    so much better than syrup. <P> Dear? Oh dear? You're in bed already? That's convenient... I'm feeling a bit... peckish... <P> 'Scuse me, gentlemen...

    Well, double irony

    by white_vader

    first up that my conception is so rock'n'roll (LITERALLY! HAW!), but then secondly that they didn't even know what a condom was. <p> Needless to say I was a bit grouchy when they tried to tell me what to do in that respect as a teenager. I get the "don't make the same mistake" thing. But it was well and truly trumped by "Do as I say, not as I do" hypocrisy...

    Oh poop!

    by Fuzzyjefe

    He was the creepy tongue dude from Goblet of Fire?

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:51 p.m. CST

    Peckish?.

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    What kind of chicken talk is that?

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:51 p.m. CST

    I didn't want to say it before

    by white_vader

    but I was thinking about poor FLick and the Tennant conflict of interest...

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:52 p.m. CST

    Nilla, that's almost as good

    by Fuzzyjefe

    as the "You really shouldn't be smoking" talk my dad gave me. As he sat there smoking.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:52 p.m. CST

    Fuzzy... just walk away.

    by ScaryWaitress

    Do. NOT. Go there. The Harry Potter movies are shit, and pollute all who touch them. <P> Seriously, though, if Tennant's agent doesn't step the fuck up heads will roll. ROLL. <P> This is so unfair.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:53 p.m. CST

    Anyway... 'nite.

    by ScaryWaitress

    It was lovely seeing you all!

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:54 p.m. CST

    Like a buddy of mine once said Nilla

    by Fuzzyjefe

    "It doesn't matter where you work up your appetite, as long as you always go home for dinner."

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 10:59 p.m. CST

    Yeah, Fuzzy...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    My dad was all like "You should never kill a man in anger, son..." WHILE we're digging a six foot deep, six foot long trench way out in the middle of the forest...

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:03 p.m. CST

    Well, as long as he wasn't angry...

    by Fuzzyjefe

    I don't see a problem there.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:05 p.m. CST

    Yeah, he went on to explain...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    "If you kill them when you are angry, you are more likely to get caught. Wait a few days or weeks then plan it out so you leave no evidence or suspicions..."

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:08 p.m. CST

    "And, if he was an asshole...its even better..."

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    "The local authorities won't waste much time lookin' for him...Now, help me get that 'deer' I wrapped in that rug out of the trunk..."

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:12 p.m. CST

    Of course, if you HAVE to kill someone

    by Fuzzyjefe

    the homeless make the best targets.

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:24 p.m. CST

    I never actually killed anybody Dad asked me to kill....

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I was like, "Dad, Soliciting a Murder is also a crime..." <p>But, he was insistant, so, I just took his money and paid somebody else to do it. <p>When he got older, I would just tell him I took care of it...He never gets out of the house anymore so he takes my word for it...

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:26 p.m. CST

    Ahhhh, family.

    by Fuzzyjefe

  • Sept. 2, 2010, 11:30 p.m. CST

    Well then anyone out there.

    by Fuzzyjefe

    I'm off to bed. Sleepytime comes.

    Missed the Fright Night talks but it was a fun movie

    by leo54304

    As Demon said worth a visit. Not bloody but for the audience it was aimed for (pre-blood lusting teens) it delivered. Just enough scares to have you worrying what was going to happen next. <br> Ending is good

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 7:24 a.m. CST

    G morning all

    by rogueleader66

    Fright Night.....classic 80's film and always worth a look....remake....ehhhhhh I hear Colin Ferall is the vampire....on the fence with that one. Speaking of vampires, watched Interview last night, damn Cruise was just great in that, as were all in the film. My step daughter used to be a huge Twilight fan, but we had her watch Interview, and she came to us afterwards and said "yea, Twilight sucks"...mission accomplished.<P>Just have to throw in my 2 cents on the vasectomy thing...it has ZERO effect on sex drive and ummmm...other stuff, I know because I am snipped, and trust me, no effect on anything.<P>Pizza...is like sex, even when it's bad it's still pretty good.<P>On that note, here's to a good Friday!

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 7:39 a.m. CST

    i think i figured out the tennant pic..

    by Six Demon Bag

    i think its supposed to look bad and dated and uber-cheesey..<P>perhaps david vincent (the characters name, for non fans)is a has been like in the original and these are pictures from his 80s glory days..it looks like its a pic of a poster or something..<P>anyway, thats the best defense i have for it..i did my best..

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 7:56 a.m. CST

    Morning, Scary.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Long time no see.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:24 a.m. CST

    IT IS! Joy...

    by ScaryWaitress

    Also, just read the synopsis... I take it back. This could be fucking GREAT for Tennant. Like, a role tailor-made for him... now I'm hoping its good.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:24 a.m. CST

    Yer killin' me, Six!

    afterwards you and the hubby..you need to watch BUCKAROO BANZAI..even better!!!

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:27 a.m. CST

    G'Morning Scary

    by rogueleader66

    How are you this fine morning?<P>You should check out Fright Night, it's good stuff. I'm with you Colonel, not too keen on the remake either. May see it at some point, but not thrilled about it. Even less thrilled about that asshat Brand remaking Arthur...where did he get the clout to ruin a comic classic?

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:28 a.m. CST

    Agreed. Peter Weller in what looks like

    by ScaryWaitress

    Mad Max meets Priscilla, Queen of the Desert? I call that a must see.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:28 a.m. CST

    Sixies

    by rogueleader66

    *bows head in shame* I never saw Buckaroo Banzai

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:30 a.m. CST

    Arthur. Ugh.

    by ScaryWaitress

    I do not get the love... but then I always kind of despised Dudley Moore. I think I would have been OK with the first movie if I hadn't seen the sequel... that is one of those instances where the sequel was so bad, it actually ruined the FIRST movie for me... well, what wasn't already ruined by Liza Minelli...

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:30 a.m. CST

    Always Liked peter Weller

    by rogueleader66

    Wish the dude had been bigger than he was, a damn good actor. Aside from Robo, he played a good scumbag in Firstborn.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:30 a.m. CST

    Great track from the FRIGHT NIGHT score:

    by ColonelFatheart

    "Come to Me."

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:32 a.m. CST

    Actually, I don't get remakes of 80's movies.

    by ScaryWaitress

    Most of them just don't seem good enough the FIRST time to warrant a remake... what's the point?

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:32 a.m. CST

    Yes I am, Scary.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Something affordable but effective. Up to $30 if you can do it.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:32 a.m. CST

    Scary

    by rogueleader66

    I hear ya on that, a bad sequel can ruin a good movie. Atrhur 2 was pretty damn terrible. It doesn't help if you don't like Dudley Moore either. But for me, the first is comedy gold.<P>Regardless, you must see Fright Night, you'll like it.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:33 a.m. CST

    COL! SimuPo...

    'morning, folks.

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    Rogue, did you see Weller guest starring in the best FRINGE episode to date, "White Tulip"? Weller was PHENOMENAL--should've been an award winning performance.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:35 a.m. CST

    YES. SIMU!!!! Mark it down, fellas!

    by ColonelFatheart

    I hope Flick doesn't get jealous ...

    Ah shit. I gotta run.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Catch y'all in a bit.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:39 a.m. CST

    Morning Fishy

    by rogueleader66

    No, did not see that episode. I need to catch up on Fringe, watched the first season, liked it quite a bit, then just lost track of it. it's hard for me to stay comitted to a show, even one I like....weird.<P>Scary..BLASPHEMY!!!! LOL....kidding...well not really. I find there are a lot of underappreciated movies from the 80's, more than people think. Sure there was a lot of cheese, but some damn fine films as well. Curious as to what it is about 80's films you find so meh.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 8:40 a.m. CST

    Here, Fishus, hold on to this for a bit.

    PINOT SUGGESTIONS... etc...

    by ScaryWaitress

    Wyatt, Sean Minor, or Fleur de California are the ones I sell that would be good to find (all about $15-$18 retail.) The Sean Minor is the most California-style (lush, ripe fruit, darker color) and the Fleur is the most French (pale color, more bright red berry/strawberry fruit.) As an interesting comaparison, try them side by side... at the very least, you can see what kind of Pinot drinker you REALLY are... because unless you're a geek, only one style will probably do it for you... and it's a good thing to know when you ask a wine geek for help. Wyatt is in the middle of those other two extremes... none of them are oaky. I'm not into oaky Pinot (what's the point? Pinot is all about nuance, you load it with oak it might as well be Syrah...) <P> A step up to $30 will get you Owen Roe Sharecropper's Pinot... David O'Reilly is the shit, yo. Gorgeous, nuanced, no real discernible oak... just delicious. An opened bottle doesn't last half an hour in our house. <P> Pinots I don't sell that are still damn good: CALERA (Josh Jensen is a god,) Ramsay, Bearboat (well, it used to be, haven't had it in a couple vintages,) and Stephen Ross. <P> For shop recs... Sparrows in Hoboken is great (one of my best accounts) but for price, Wine Outlet in Secaucus is really cheap. They don't carry a TON of my stuff, but they will order it if you ask. There's a GREAT little mom-and-pop store in Maplewood, and another small outfit in Tenafly (if you ever go north) called Wine Ventures, they're a trip. <P> If you're looking for a good place to eat out, btw, Bin14 in Hoboken is AWESOME- small plates, you can taste lots of things with their 2oz pours- and the Turtle Club is amazing too, new hip young owners with fucking incredible food made with no real kitchen, I shit you not. Just some hot plates and a microwave... you would not believe it. If you ever want to go, shoot me an email... if you tell them you know me, they MIGHT actually be nice to you (the managers like me, go figure.) <P> PS, they're pouring the Sean Minor Pinot at Bin14.
