I'm with ya on that Cal, either that or Wayne will be left standing and he's got terminal cancer, so....

Purchased Gladiator and watched it with commentary...will have to view again as I FELL ASLEEP during the movie! :shock: Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe are having a good time while chatting about the movie during the extended version.

Just for 70's nostalgia and to enjoy some un-PC humor, :wink: bought a collection of Dean Martin Roasts. I remember watching the originals, and liking them...now I'll find out if my memory failed me. :mrgreen:


Haha, that's exactly what I was thinking, they'll all die except Wayne. And maybe Tig, since most people thought for sure that he would die last season.

I myself didn't think Gladiator was anything great.

And as for the roasts, check out Youtube. I think they have some full episodes that aren't in the collection.

The only things good about "Gladiator" are Olly Reed and the computer simulation of the Colosseum. The TV series "I, Claudius", even though it is from the 70s and cost nothing at all, is a much better use of Derek Jacobi's talents, IMHO.

Got "The Wrong Man(s)" for Xmas, which we gulped down in two servings (it's a series). Great. Witty and nail biting. The Brits still have the best TV.

One last thing on Gladiator (and SOA, actually) is that a young Tommy Flannagan (Chibbs) has a smallish part in the pic...and he had his scars even back then!

The roasts weren't as funny, although the one for Johnny Carson had it's moments. I'd forgotten these were originally during the Dean Martin Comedy Hour, usually the last 30 minutes. In Johnny's roast, Redd Foxx comes up, does a few quips, then pretends to be upset about the material. " NBC can't write for spooks!" Wow. Not suprising, considering Foxx's nightclub shows, which were much worse.

I watched two or three of the roasts, and a LOT of it was race/ethnicity based stuff.

I actually saw it in a theater when it came out.

I guess this would count - I just got a DVD-A of Tyranny And Mutation, and it sounds great in DTS.

A Token Of His Extreme....finally! Nice to see the Montana guitar solo, but some of the seizure-inducing graphics really get to me. Dub Room Special doesn't seem to go that route as much, perhaps FZ decided he liked a smoother look years later. Anyway, it's great music and all are having a fantastic time---especially when they see Frank's having a good time.

Been watching my MST3K DVD's recently...so many Zappa refs, but we all knew that. Still, it's fun to hear them come up.

August: Osage County---The editing on the ads are a bit misleading, Meryl Streep isn't speaking to Julia Roberts when she says, "You look like a lesbian" and it makes it seem like a hilarious comedy. Yes, it's VERY funny in a dark way, but it's also extremely DRAMATIC, with good reason. Watching recent Star Trek movie villain playing an oddball, yet sweet (with a slight secret) guy from the Plains is rather strange...Cumberbatch? Is that his name? He also plays Sherlock Holmes on the BBC. Ms. Roberts actually puts in an excellent performance...good to see.

Saving Mister Banks---Emma Thompson is good, but I don't know if it's an Oscar-worthy performance, much less nominated. Love looking at the old autos in 1961 L.A. and they must have had to do some deep research for the rooms in the Beverly Hills Hotel. Lovely art direction. Hang out for the closing credits to see some archival photos and actual audio tape of Mrs. Travers giving her orderly orders. :wink:

Great movie, almost bought it the other day.

Watching season one of American Horror Story...liking it and love the art direction, sets and costumes. Jessica Lange is loving this role, you can tell.
