My Bond-a-thon continues....am up to Live and Let Die......which I always liked and look forward to re-watching after so long. I remember Moore sliding nicely into the role.

Liked On Her Majesty's Secret Service a lot more than I anticipated, especially the final scene, which was, as Laz said, hardcore. Forgot how meh I felt about Diamonds are Forever until re-watching it. Tiffany Case, though, was not meh.

When in the hell, are they going to make a full length feature on Hatchet or My Side of the Mountain?

Diamonds is about as bad as any Moore installment.

I agree about Jill St. John. I'd totally meh her.

Welcome back, Dalton. How's it hanger?

Dalton, Laz is not the same without you around. Please do not disappear again, at least not without alerting him first.

Out of sheer curiosity, what do you actually like? Every post of yours is a criticism of someone else liking something, be it TV, music, film. You are so persistently negative that I wonder if you actually ever derive pleasure from anything.
As far as Wong Kar-wai goes, I think that Happy Together is, far and away, his best work. It's one of my favorite movies of the '90s, and the main reason why I consider Tony Leung to be the best living actor we've got, in this world. Amazing stuff. He'll never be that great, again. Chungking Express is also another of my favorite, from the decade. My favorite romantic comedy (of sorts) of all time.

I watched No Country For Old Men, a few weeks ago, as far as more contemporary stuff goes, and I enjoyed its brazen reimagination of Wenders's Texas, as I saw it. Maybe even saw a bit of Hitchcock's American landscape, buried in there. Very intriguing. Terribly beautiful, not too underwritten, and generally well-performed (although Tommy Lee Jones was a bit too Morgan Freeman, at times, for my taste).

Anyway, I apologize for not having the same taste as you, and, of course, for being honest about my own opinions. I won't be back in this thread any time soon, so no worries. I didn't know that we were only supposed to post positive reviews and avoid commenting about what we thought about other films being reviewed; nothing wrong with that, but I didn't get the memo. Word up.

Holy fuck, it's not about having the same taste. I make negative posts as well, I'm no pollyanna.


I just see you piss on a lot of people's posts, yet you rarely have anything positive to say, and that struck me as curious. I asked what you liked, and you replied in kind, which I appreciate. I don't know why being queried/mildly confronted would cause you to retreat from anything, let alone a thread on a web site.

No Country is a fucking masterpiece as far as I'm concerned, both the book and the film.

Anyway, was not trying to drive you out of this or any other thread, sorry if that's the net result.

Fair enough, I suppose, NSW. I would, all the same, encourage you to explain to me how this post is pissing on anything, or even how it seems "persistently negative." As far as three-sentence posts go, I feel that I was, as always, even-handed and reasonable. There's a wink in there, for fuck's sake, you know? What else does a brother gotta do?

Well, it's true, you're not exactly making a savage attack, I concede that. But, Lance did express that he liked the film, and your reply was that you liked nothing about it save the soundtrack. Then the wink, yes.

I guess my post was less about this one post, and instead was due to a cumulative effect from a few threads.

I probably could have been more tactful with my initial post.

A brother aint gotta do anything else. It's all good.

Holla.

Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story

It was pretty lukewarm. Like most anything Family Guy-related, it's a mixture of brilliance and eye-rolling. The plot was alright, but a bit disjointed. Not that such a thing ever mattered with this show. These days, they pack 5 different plots into 19 minutes, so packing about 4 different plots into 80 minutes really isn't so bad in comparison.

Forgettable, but occasionally very good.

7/10

I LOVE that movie. When they're asking people on the street what they would choose as an alternate name for San Francisco, and Older Stewie says "Considering all the shoe stores here I'd have to say 'Heaven'!"

The whole thing is hilarious.

And BTW, how is lukewarm 7/10? You must be on Lance's grading scale.

Lukewarm should probably be closer to 5 or 6, sure, but I must agree that there were a few AMAZINGLY funny moments.

Plus, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for a few of the jokes that I simply didn't get due to my ignorance of what they were parodying.

The intro where Lois is drunk at the movie premiere is pretty great, too.

The Beatles songs in the movie were good and I eventually liked the movie
