Hey folks, Harry here with today’s DVD Picks & Peeks. Nice to say that. Like I said, things have been crazy around here… now that the basics of the set and show have been set up, things are starting to calm down, which has allowed me to catch up on this column for all of you. Some great stuff this week, but none better than this first offering. Wow. As usual the images and links take you to Amazon where you can learn more on the title – and even purchase the item which helps to support this column!

Tennessee Williams play… Elia Kazan’s brilliant direction… Brando’s supreme iconography – the man was just existing on an entirely different plane of existence, creating a performance often referenced but never equaled. Then there’s Vivian Leigh. Just wow. Her Blanche DuBois… it’s just so aching and real. Then there’s Kim Hunter’s Stella. This is cinema beating it’s chest and getting down to the essentials of performance, writing and film that boils. This film sweats, it increases the humidity – and this Blu Ray is just something miraculous. This Blu Ray is flawless. You get a commentary that has some feedback from Karl Malden and some film historians. There’s the hour and fifteen minute ELIA KAZAN: A DIRECTOR’S JOURNEY. There’s a piece called A STREETCAR ON BROADWAY, then another on A STREETCAR IN HOLLYWOOD. There’s a piece on CENSORSHIP AND DESIRE. A feature on Alex North’s amazing score! A brief look at Brando – and Marlon Brando’s screen-test for A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE which is awesome. There’s 15+ minutes of outtakes and more than that in Audio Outtakes. The only problem I have is that all the extras are Standard Def. But hell, I can live with that.


I love this movie. Love it. I love Johnny Depp’s performance and I love Marlon Brando’s gloriously sexy fat man! Not only that, but this is the film where I truly fell in love with Faye Dunaway. She’s so beautiful in here. I love her and Brando as an old married couple recapturing their spark and fire. I love the drunk on romance of this film. I love the way Depp teaches you to see how women move as a source for their beauty… the way the clothes hug the skin and form of a woman. This movie is in love with love and the power of cinema to romanticize. It is perhaps this film, more than any other, for which I love Johnny Depp – and always will. He’s awesome here.


I’m that particular breed of geek that just can’t imagine the person that doesn’t pick up Season Three of NIGHT GALLERY. Sure, if you don’t have Season 1 & 2, you should see those first. They are the better seasons, but Season 3 has a healthy dose of the fantastic. You’ve got performers like Burgess Meredith, Mickey Rooney, VINCENT PRICE & LEONARD NIMOY… You have THE OTHER WAY OUT and FINNEGAN’S FLIGHT – which are arguably some of the best work that Serling was ever involved in. Then on this DVD – you get the two LOST episodes. You get Audio Commentary on THE RETURN OF THE SORCERER… great episode that one. This is just the stuff of legend from my childhood. NIGHT GALLERY was the shit. I’m still hoping for a great remastered BLU RAY treatment of the whole thing to equal the amazing TWILIGHT ZONE Blu Rays! But that’s not even in the planning stages as best as I can tell. So good!


This film was released a month after Kent State in 1970, but had been shot long before that terrible moment in U.S. history. Starring a young Bruce Davison and Kim Darby, who was straight off of TRUE GRIT and 3 years before DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK. If you’re one of those people that were horrified by our country’s recent handling of student protests – check out this film. This was a movie at the time that was trying to wake people up to what was going on. Advocacy filmmaking – and the movie is good stuff. Really underlines this kind of nightmare.


I kind of hated this do nothing movie that didn’t illuminate me an ounce on who Margaret Thatcher was as a human being. I was not a fan of Streep’s performance which sounded like an incredibly stiff Julia Childs to my ear. The embalming that the Makeup artists performed on her just made the film the second worst makeup of the year behind J. EDGAR. I remember Thatcher as definitely having that painted quality – but I had a hard time taking Streep serious as this character. Mainly because I felt we never got to discover who she was. I can’t imagine wanting to own this.

LOGAN’S RUN: Complete Series

Commence Nerdgasms. There was a time in the 70s where many geeks believed this show was the greatest thing ever. I remember the conventions with dozens of folks in Sandman costumes. I shit you not. They’d argue with the Trek gets that the future was LOGAN’S RUN, not STAR TREK… Just as HUNGER GAMES is doing now. And like HUNGER GAMES, there’s genuine quality at play here. The LOGAN’S RUN complete series is a damn fine show. Written by folks like D.C. Fontana and Harlan Ellison, along with a troupe of great sci-fi minds. This was an ambitious show. Ever since it aired, it’s basically been impossible to see these, except through bootlegs – and it’s entire fanbase has existed via those Video Tape dealers at conventions that have stuff that 99% of the world doesn’t know about, but that makes us geeks go nuts. I love that official versions of this stuff is coming out! The quality is just tremendous. Watching Gregory Harrison and Heather Menzies on these sets are just so cool.


This is an American apocalyptic adventure sci-fi horror about strange energy beings that just start killing everything. It’s pretty goddamn awful – but I was sitting there watching it when the notion hit me. Holy shit, a crappy sci-fi movie starring Americans is shooting Red Square and Lenin Square and on the Academy of Science Plaza… and I know that’s technically not a big deal – but within my lifetime that was once unthinkable. Sometimes I love thinking about what we’re seeing from that perspective – simply because nothing on screen was particularly giving me anything to care about, so my brain just began to wander. I thought about how much the world has changed and how we’re even making crappy movies in Red Square. That’s… kinda amazing. Much moreso than anything else in this movie. It has a nice look – it’s just total bullshit though.

A TRIP TO THE MOON Restored (Limited Edition Steelbook Blu Ray)

Folks – I’m sad to report this has problems. There’s some sync problems with the scores. There’s a lack of options on the color restoration… And the disc does cost $30. It could be better. There’s a great documentary with wonderful interviews with a bunch of filmmakers. But I’d be lying if I wasn’t a bit disappointed on this. That said – if you turn the sound off on the restoration of the original hand tinted restored print of A TRIP TO THE MOON… you’ll just be in awe. Truly one of the great short film achievements in cinema history. So iconic.

DARK SHADOWS: The Complete Original Series (Limited Edition)

DARK SHADOWS fans, your time has come. Thanks to the media blitz that naturally accompanies everything that Johnny Depp and Tim Burton get involved in… You can now add to your collection 131 DVDs containing all 1,225 complete episodes of DARK SHADOWS in a Coffin Container where the end art ends up displaying Barnabas in his coffin. Too cool. There’s over 120 cast and crew interviews. Bloopers, BTS, a booklet. It weighs over 15 lbs. And running an epic 470 hours… it’d take nearly 20 consecutive 24 hours to watch them all. How committed are you to being the authoritative DARK SHADOWS fan before the release. Here’s your chance to really dive in. It’ll set you back over $500, but really… this is a helluva big set.


I ate a lot of Chinese food in Conroe, Texas as a child. It was when my mom & dad took me to the Texas Renaissance Faire where they sold their artwork. Watching Werner Herzog’s documentary set in Conroe, Texas… all about a 28 year old Death Row inmate… and it’s Herzog exploring the phenomenon of execution. He talks with the men that help strap down the condemned – and he shows the toll it can have on those men. He lets the condemned know that he doesn’t necessarily like him. It’s brilliant. I live in a very odd state. Austin is as liberal as they get, and yet, we’re the minority. Having to live with State Sanctioned Execution and a host of other things that drive us crazy. Herzog underlines this and I thank him for it. We need more people calling attention to the insanity of the state I love.


KING KONG’s Bruce Cabot plays the Wes Studi character from the Michael Mann film of Magua… But Randolph Scott plays a fantastic Hawkeye… maybe not quite at the level of Daniel Day Lewis, but it is a very different film. And going into that, take it with you. This is LAST OF THE MOHICANS being done at the top of Hollywood’s powers in 1936 with Randolph Scott being just about as heroic a Hawkeye as you could imagine. I love this version, but it is one of those tales that I just love. One of the great American adventure stories ever told. It fires the imagination. That’s still the power of James Fenimore Cooper. Good buy!


Starring Sean Connery and Ian McShane in 1975, THE TERRORISTS is generally considered one the lost Sean Connery films – as it has been very nearly impossible to see for quite some time. Thankfully Anchor Bay is putting out this Blu Ray which officially makes it great to see. It had come out on VHS, but this is its first time on a superior format. Woo Hoo. Connery is a charming dogged hunter of terrorists and he’ll capture you and make you cheer and love him for getting the terrorists. And now we know the truth behind Connery’s “retirement” mhmmm… He’s keeping the world safe. You know it.


For less than $10, you can get this great Cliff Notes version of DARK SHADOWS. You get the episode where Barnabas returns to Collinwood for the very first time. You have the Séance that gave you the ghost of Sarah Collins. There’s the werewolf. The zombie return of Quentin Collins. The costume party and more. These will give you a working knowledge of what’s up. At some level. I really enjoyed this set. 9 complete episodes!


Here you get another 9 episodes for under $10 with these purporting to be the best Barnabas episodes, these are episodes that are meant to suck you into the mythology of the show and the mystique of Barnabas himself. I haven’t gotten started on this set yet, but I will. I’d probably need to take a month off of doing anything just to get through that whole Dark Shadows set. One can dream.


An inexperienced and bored housewife decides to allow herself to be exploited in a Japanese sex club to learn more about sex in this very perverse and depraved PINK film. That said – it’s a fascinating one. This is really dirty stuff – but isn’t full on porn. It’s… well, a PINK film. If you like this stuff, this is a good one.


There’s a serial killer that is targeting handicapped women. Jacqueline Bisset (god I love her) plays a “beautiful” mute girl staying at her uncle, played by Academy Award winning actor Christopher Plummer. This is fucking great, a wonderful suspense thriller starring one of my biggest all time crushes and Christopher Plummer too! Check this flick out, it’s great.

Next week we’ll be looking at MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE GHOST PROTOCOL Blu, SHAME Blu, HIGH ROAD TO CHINA Blu, THE DIVIDE Blu, Season 1 of YOUNG JUSTICE, Roger Corman’s NURSE pictures, ROADRACERS Blu Ray, BUCK PRIVATES Blu Ray, THE ASPHYX Blu Ray, ALAMBRISTA! Criterion Blu, THE SKY’S THE LIMIT, LIVING IN A BIG WAY, THE DOORWAY TO HELL, OPERATION CONDOR 2: ARMOUR OF GOD Blu, Lost Detective Classics, Rare Sound Shorts, CANNIBAL ISLAND and that’s about it. Thanks for being understanding. Glad to be caught up.

    The Darkest Hour

    by Nesskid

    Really looked like the worst idea on Earth and it would seem that audiences proved that to be true. Did this even play in theaters?

  • Typically and blatantly Immoral behavior and all of you fucking plebs should be used to it by now as I've proven, time and time again, that I'm a greedy fat fucking bastard who is perfectly happy with people knowing that I'm a toxic waste dump of a human being with dogshit and Twinkie filling where my soul and integrity should be. I’m in this for ME-ME-ME and will forever continue to lie through my teeth because having spent my whole life as a disgusting example of American gluttony, I have no shame what-so-ever in bullshitting people just as long as I get what I need to fill the hole in my life that I stuff with food, toys, collectables and knowing various Hollywood celebrities on a first name basis although they secretly despise me and only pander for publicity reasons and buy me off with freebies, screenings and pweasants and if they don’t I CRY, SCREAM AND POUT like the fucking retarded man-child I’ve been my whole worthless existence due to the negligence of my inbred trailer trash parents who let me live in a world of fantasy and delusion as opposed to learning basic grammar/spelling and physical fitness. So despite the uproar about hit whoring with a script that I KNEW to be fake, I'll just ignore any mean things people say to me because they're just jealous because I'm popular although subconsciously I know what a fucking degenerate I am which is why I have an endless pit of want that can never be filled. Signed Harry "Jerkoff" Knowles Esquire the 3rd

  • This fucking lowlife acting like a piece of shit. He gets busted and tries to weasel his way out or just flat out ignores it. If we don't let him then he and his flunkies start banning.

  • April 10, 2012, 4:30 a.m. CST

    It's amazing how every DVD column begins with Harry explaining why it's late

    by Kill List Hammertime

    And I'm with Creepy and Phantom. Your readership is obviously not fucking happy, how about pulling your head out your arse and doing something about it? Stop being a twat, Harry.

  • You'd have to be a fucking idiot to not recognize that it WAS a good movie. But this corpulent asswipe got nothing from Warners so he made out that it put him to sleep i.e. it was boring.

  • April 10, 2012, 4:44 a.m. CST

    i used to read this column

    by mick vance

    just to see what below the radar movies were coming out, but now i just love to fucking read it to see everyone bash on Harry.

    Political comments in a movie site...

    by Dustoff74

    if you don't like the death penalty, fine. but in a dvd review, your 2 political cents shouldn't be a part of it. (just as you don't give a damn about my opinion that i am all for executions instead of feedind and supporting a murderer for a lifetime.) and by the way, harry, how much did that box set way? (damn, use a spell check or get Yoko to proofread.)

    Headgeek, re The Iron Lady

    by Colin Dent

    The reason you couldn't 'get' Thatcher as a human being is, quite simply, she eradicated that aspect of her nature. Apart from the spite, the vindictiveness, the sneakiness, the elitism, the bigotry and the general all round vileness of the woman. Seriously, when she dies, they'll have to give her full state honours and bury her in a cathederal, for the simple reason that there are so many people in Britain that would gladly dance on her grave, it would nudge the earth out of orbit.

    Harry's Final Word On That PROMETHEUS Script ...

    by ArmageddonProductions

    "Hey gang, Harry here - I know some of you are upset that I reviewed that obviously fake PROMETHEUS script that takes place on the planet Zeus just to drum up some site traffic - but let me explain.</p><p> First of all, most of the stuff we report on here at AICN is usually about two weeks old - and we don't check any of it before posting - I have a DVD column to work on EVERY WEEK and that shit's demanding - do you have any idea how hard it is to masturbate to Japanese Blu-ray pron when you have to bury your entire fist under your belly to just find your own penis? Okay, some of you do. Fair enough.</p><p> Second - how long have you been coming to this site now? Ten years? Give years? Do you remember the last time we "broke" a story about a leaked script, pblished spy photoes no one else had already pblished two weeks ago on Empire or even had news you haven't already read on your AOL Entertainment? If I were to post a review of the actual PROMETHEUS script - well, let's just say - no more HOBBIT set reports for you, Soup Nazi!</p><p> We're an entertaiment site. That means Amazon links. Do criminals have Amazon links? No. We're not criminals. We pay taxes. Some times you just have to roll with the changes vato.</p><p> Look, when I was eight years old, Fathergeek would take me on a Lear jet to Ridley Scott's house - when your eight years old and you love ALIEN as much as I do, Ridley Scott is magic. I had a 13 inch Kenner Alien doll clutched in my fat little hand - it was sticky from Ho-Ho frosting - and my hand-written "ALIEN ON MARS" screenplay in my other hand - it was also sticky. I was nervous - if Ridley Scott didnt read my script, what would I do?</p><p> Fortunately, Ridley Scott turned out to be a cool guy. He read my script - it was set on Mars and Alien fought John Carter - because John Carter is the big hairy fist sticking into the stink creamy vagina that is science fiction - and we ate Chinese food. It was British Chinese food of course, so it had mice in it - but I didn't care - Ridley-fucking-Scott was READING MY SCRIPT AND MAKING MY ALIEN DOLL FACE RAPE A BARBIE!!! Afterwards, we laughed and Ridley Scott told me I should never write a screenplay again. Then he showed us the secret blueprints for a little film he was about to shoot called "BLADE RUNNER".</P><P> So as you can see, I have a lot of history with ALIEN and PROMETHEUS - and while I love reading fake scripts - even if this particular fake script had the Space Jockey team up with a time-traveling Hudson from ALIENS and shoot astronaughts with machine guns - lets just say, NO REAL LEAKED SCRIPT REVIEWS! I'll be back soon after I get my blood changed!"

    It's filled a void left behind from many cancelled soap operas. The random assortment of episodes leaves me wondering what's going on half the time, though.

    by eustisclay rednedlynch(did the name by the way, am a big Experiment in Terror fan) said, her name is Lara Parker and she is also in Race with the Devil, a pretty cool witches and motorcycles flick with Peter Fona and Warren Oates. And Harry, what's with claiming that it was ALL Dark Shadows? I got pretty excited but, nope, still no theatrical films. I loved House of Dark Shadows, saw it in 6th grade and that was when you could go see a good bloody PG(or GP) rated horror flick. And that was one very bloody flick. Maybe they are holding back on it because it was a pretty serious vampire film and it doesn't fit the match up with the comical Depp film. I don't care, I want it!

    Harry The Idiot Strikes Again

    by Mike Jenner

    "THE TERRORISTS is generally considered one the lost Sean Connery films – as it has been very nearly impossible to see for quite some time". So says movie expert Harry Knowles. What a load of rubbish. Generally considered by whom Harry? People in third world countries who have never seen movies before? Or is it just idiot slack jawed yokels who pretend to be movie experts but in truth are just charlatans. For your information Mr Aint It Cool Movie Expert, The DVD of this Connery film has been available since 2003. It is even readily available from your own bloody sponsor, Amazon. Perhaps if Harry actually knew anything about movies rather than just pretending to he would also know the European title for this film was Ransom. And hey, guess what, my fellow movie fans from the EU.... the DVD has been readily available on Region 2 since 2004. This is exactly the sort of thing I have come to expect from Harry The Idiot. He comes out with phrases like "the lost Connery" just because he has never heard of the movie. This column is terrible. Harry, go back to reading your wholly authentic Prometheus script (yuk yuk) and get somebody else to write this column..... somebody who actually knows something about what they are talking about rather than just trying to live up to the media hype about them. Amateur night.

This site is what it is somewhat informative at times and saying stuff out of there ass the other.

    re: "[Harry] comes out with phrases like "the lost Connery"..."

    by buggerbugger

    I believe the phrase 'the lost Connery' was first coined sometime in the '60s; it's the name given to the first toupee that went missing from Connery's impressive, walk-in collection. It was his favourite, too. He never quite got over the loss, as you can no doubt tell by some of his onscreen performances.

    So Harry, when are you going to learn humility?

    by Mike Jenner

    Stop hiding behind silence, transparent lies ("I got the Prometheus script years ago -before it was even written ") and lame excuses ("it was an in-joke with my dad who used to make cooments about Brian Cox being in everything, right back from when De Mille was directing Greatest Show On Earth") AAnd just admit sometimes you ger it wrong. Like you did with Prometheus. And famous lost Connery movie The Terrorists (lost to anyone who doesn'tlive within a 10,000 mile radious of Blockbuster and who doesn't have electricity or the internet - so basically, eskimos). In fairness you didnt ever promote yourself originally as a movie expert. The media did that. But you loved that mantle and never really tried to set the record straight. Instead you love the plaudits thrown your way and eventually you bought your own press. You actually believe yourself to be a movie expert. Well, here's a newsflash for you big fella. You are NOT a movie expert. You're not even close. Bor are you a film critic. What you are is a reasonably well informed fan-boy, who got lucky by being the first man on internet moon. You can't write very well, and your "gee whiz, its so fucking cool" schtick comes across like a 12 year old's writing. You know a lot about movie one-sheets and collectables and thats about it. It is obvious what sort of movies you really live - slam, pow action popcorn flicks and a bit of Jap porn - nothing wrong with either but stop pretending you like serious art-house movies, or Classics by Hitchcock et al. It is painfully obvious you don't watch those soet of movies and you just look like a fool when you base entire reviews on a quick wiki search. Your review of Rebecca for example was just so obvious you had never seen that movie. Again you just couldn't stand to admit it though. The sooner you fess up and admit you are not the professional film expert and critic you pretend to be, then the sooner maybe people will start respecting you again. Until then, you will lose what little respect you have left, every time you look like a total jerk. Essentailly, everytime you post anything at all on current performance. Time to get off the ego trip and grow up.

    We need a real biopic about Thatcher

    by CptBlood

    One that utterly exposes her for the evil woman she was. And I mean Evil. There is a reason she is so utterly loathed in the UK. The woman destroyed an entire society. Broke up whole communitys, sold them to the highest bidder and reprssed dissent through force. She is our Mao. The closest the UK ever got to a dictator. This is not hyperbole. Thatchers government killed people who didn't agree with the party line. Literally. She was an evil woman and there will be much celebration when she finally snuffs it.

    The Kong Bomb

    by Mike Jenner

    Yeah, I absolutely agree with yourmomsboxreturns' indignation with Harry The Idiot's "haha I've got it and you haven't" opening to his youtube ego trip. But we can all take solace from the fact that, if Harry The Idiot was too dumb to spot a fake Prometheus screenplay then this Kong bomb probably isn't genuine either - in fact Knowles probably bought it in some red-neck bar in Autism, Texas. The deal probably went down something like this; HUSTLER: Psssst.... Fat dude..... hey, you with the silly beard and musty smell. HARRY THE IDIOT: Y'all mean me, yuk yuk? HUSTLER: Well, unless Pig Pen out of the Peanuts cartoons is here.... yeah, you, Laser brain. HARRY THE IDIOT: Huh huh huh... Empire reference.... me likey..... yuk yuk. HUSTLER: So, come ove here, I got something of interest for ya. (Knowles goes over to the Hustler) LADY IN BAR: What the hell is that smell??? MAN IN BAR: And where did the sun go? HUSTLER: So you wanna buy this genuine Kong bomb, dude? Its like the original from the Merian Cooper movie. HARRY THE IDIOT: The what form the what now? HUSTLER: The original '33 movie. Skull Island? Fay Ray? Bruce Cabot? HARRY THE IDIOT pushes a pencil into his ear. HUSTLER: Giant monkey on the Empire State Buliding? HARRY THE IDIOT: Giant monkey! Harry like giant monkey! Reminds Harry of Grandad. Yuk yuk HUSTLER: Anyway want to buy this authentic prop bomb from the Skull Island scene? HARRY THE IDIOT: Is it genuine? HUSTLER: Well of course.... look here, it has the words MATTEL stamped underneath it. As a movie expert, you will know Matt Ell was the props man on the original Kong, right Harry? HARRY THE IDIOT: That's right! Fella, you've got yourself a deal. Yuk yuk. Done!!!! HUSTLER: And you certainly have been. HARRY THE IDIOT: What? HUSTLER: I said, you certainly have that bomb! HARRY THE IDIOT: Yuk yuk.

    In fact Billy did give a reasonable reply in Harry The Idiot's Prometheus talkback. And in fairness it was a pretty good reply. Fhe shame of it is that a new mod like Billy is forced to comment because Knowles as usual just pretends the error didn't exist. He made some perfunctory comment about how he had been exposed as reviewiing a bogus script but then said he had no shame in doing so. Because of course he is better than you and me. He is a movie expert.

    by UltraTron

  • April 10, 2012, 8:14 p.m. CST

    the point is

    by CptBlood

    That she was a very different kind of prime Minister, One who wielded power as a force to get her own way and push her own agenda regardless of what she broke in the process. The British have realised this and were very wary of a tory government for years after, even those who supported her agenda are very concious of how toxic even a mild association with her could be. The best example I can give is that the british view Thatcher in a very similar way that the far right republicans view Obama. Except that far from irrational, our justifiable hatred of the woman is very well evidenced and still palpable accross party lines. Thatcher is our nixon. It doesn't matter what you're politics are, we all agree that woman was fucking evil.

    by CptBlood!

  • Well get ready for number 4! And all the hatred for Maggie Thatcher... can anyone actually post some specific points as to what she did that other prime minister's didn't do? This is a good one: "To all you infants, here's why the death penalty makes no sense... by krinkle 1) Killing someone as revenge for them killing someone is ridiculous. 2) Even though I don't personally give a shit, I believe there was something about 'not killing' in the Ten Commandments 3) Any kind of civilization that wants to progress needs to get past state-sanctioned murder... " Krinkle? Sorry to tell you this, but... um...... WE ARE NOT QUITE CIVILIZED. Jesus Christ you liberal hippies... you believe in evolution but don't acknowledge what it means? It means WE ARE ANIMALS. Sure, it doesn't mean we have to act like animals, but that is what we are. The fact is, it's like the whole "Batman and the Joker" bit. There is only so many times you capture the bad guy, put him in an insane asylum, he gets out and kills a few (hundred) people, you capture him and put him right back in, where he escapes, etc etc. before you realize that it just isn't working. Now you can say that is a comic book, but I would think the majority of you would be smart enough to get the point. Some people are broken, and no matter what made them into a broken destructive person, there is no saving them. But unlike ABORTION, you have to prove guilt of actually being a threat to the life and lifestyles of other homo sapiens before you get state-sanctioned executuon. So Krinkle? Call it revenge or call it equalization (as in, cause and effect, otherwise known as the law of nature?), it is far dumber to keep a psycho alive with the possibility of escape than to just abort the threat after evidence is presented to prove it. And when did any of you liberal hippies ever give a flying fuck about the ten commandments? Now can we get back to talking about movies and Harry's fake script review?

  • I'm sorry son, but you've been chosen. Say goodbye to your mother and sister because we have to leave soon for the Death Facility. It's just the way things are son. Now let's get going because we have to fight off the insane, murderous hordes that reside right outside our door.

    by ArmageddonProductions

This way, no one can bitch about executions anymore and the punishment still fits the crime.

His part in 'A Bridge Too Far' wasn't particularly moving (nor was the rest of the cast - it was the war cinematography that was the star of that one), but it was definitely good. <p> Holy shit! Ian McShane is almost 70?! Who knew? I sure as hell didn't.

    Anyway, back to movies/TV.....

    by MisterManReturns

    Loved "Logan's Run", the movie, but hated the TV series. At 50, I saw them both, first run. Granted, the miniatures for the movie were not well done - intricate, but far too unconvincing. "Night Gallery" was a weekly necessity - my family watched it faithfully, along with the other early 70s supernatural series (which became convoluted during reruns.....mixing "Sixth Sense" into "Night Gallery"..."Ghost Story" becoming "Circle of Fear".....)

    Well some did refer to Zimmerman as a Kike. Hope that cleared everything up.

    Your comments are very much appreciated. But I have to correct you on one thing. Obama won by fooling everyone that he was going to be post racial and post partisan when in fact he's proven to be as divisive as anyone in both areas. The electorate won't make the same mistake twice. But they did elect Reagan and George W twice. AICNers can't figure out how this could happen. They think everyone agrees with them because they don't actually know anyone who thinks outside their accepted orthodoxy. They think V for Vendetta represents an accurate take on government excess. Laughable. We're seeing now what the left does with the government reins. They try to control every aspect of our lives at the point of a gun.

    ,"We're seeing now what the left does with the government reins." The Republicans are in charge of the House. ,"Obama won by fooling everyone that he was going to be post racial and post partisan when in fact he's proven to be as divisive as anyone in both areas." Obama has tried to make compromises with the REpublicans. the whole Romneycare Bill was a huge compromise on the parts of Obama and the Dems to adopt largely REpublican ideas. Obama has compromised so much that actual Lefties serious question his credentials as a liberal: Extending the Bush Tax Cuts, not closing Guantanamo Bay, reinstating the Patriot Act. In return for Obama's bipartisan efforts the REpublicans have done nothing but obstruct.

    Do you guys really believe hose talking points? Bill Clinton compromised with Republicans. Obama talks endlessly about it but has been a back stabbing, grandstanding partisan from the word go. I am sorry that those so far to the left they think Cuba is a People's paradise don't believe Obama has gone far enough. Mainstream America will punish him for his excesses. Anyway it's great conversing. I respect your points of view even if I don't share them.

  • Use that energy to go out and do something that actually makes a difference, or does some good for the world at large. At the very least I hope all of you vote.

    corode: Re: The Iron Lady

    by madmental

    Summed up perfectly, m8. If she was supposed to be a human being, the Creator's attempt backfired with a full open throttle. Yet another example that shoots a Lewis gun volley through any arguments favouring "Intelligent Design".

  • Perhaps I missed something. People were protesting non-stop during the Bush era (I'm assuming that is the era you were referring to) and nobody interfered with the protests at all. Or perhaps you are referring to the Occupy movement? Again, the Government went so far to protect the protesters freedom of speech it isn't funny. What, do you mean that protesters have the right to LIVE in a public park for months at a time, making it impossible for the rest of the public to enjoy the space? Unless you are talking about Syria, in which case you are right.

    DVD column

    by Chris Kirby

    Harry, Out of all due respect. This column is obviously one of the most read columns on this site. I respectfully wonder why you are rolling out new ideas such as your youtube segment when you can't even keep up with the regular columns that already exist. You have a great site and it would be appreciated if you would stick to keeping up with what you have already created before moving on to bigger and better things. Thanks.

    There's a trailer that's been out for two days now here: I guess, eventually, even Ain't It Cool will learn about it instead of trying to earn money sending us to Amazon. com to buy shit.

    Another week with no column

    by DrGogol

    I'm telling you. I'll do it for a tiny fee and the free Blu-raus that come with it. You'll make a lot more money off the Amazon clicks if you actually have new columns up every week.
