Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 27, 2022, 04:13:52 PMTurns out, too that it is one of my youngest brother-in-law's very favorite movies.As for me, I enjoyed it fine, it's an awfully impressive achievement. Not a question I need to settle tonight, but I'm not sure I need to go on that ride again. I also find myself a shade leery of the industry's need to build a franchise out of it. From my perspective, the theme being "Ya know, guy, you just shouldn't have; look at everything that went wrong," in short, there shouldn't be a sequel to a movie whose curtain line is, "After careful consideration, I have decided not to endorse your park." But the industry is what it is."
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 27, 2022, 07:55:51 PMI did watch the Return to J.P. suite of featurettes, which opened with Spielberg saying he wasn't making a horror movie. Yet it more or less felt like that. I get that the "reveal" of the brachiosaur is majestic and beautiful, and that when they've fled to the treetop, they hear the brachiosaurs singing, but ... the kids in the kitchen, e.g.Overall, though, the featurettes did a great job of illustrating the puppeteering tour-de-force of the endeavor. Also fun to learn that Goldblum's heroic turn in distracting the Tyrannosaur was the actor's idea.I re-watched High Noon as a chaser.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 28, 2022, 02:01:54 AMI understand what you mean. Thanks for sharing a bit about the extras. And well done Mr. Goldblum! By the way, did you know that he loves jazz and put out an album? And, of yeah, it hit number one on the Billboard's Jazz Album chart too. PD
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 28, 2022, 07:25:24 AMI either knew or suspected, PD, since it looked to me like he really was at the piano in both Earth Girls Are Easy "You rest your thumbs, I'll drive." and The Fly.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 28, 2022, 07:42:15 AMI remember (sometime in, I want to say, the past year?) seeing him on a late night talk show being interviewed and then playing with a band. Forget which one it was, but there are various uploads on youtube of him playing.PD

Quote from: VonStupp on November 29, 2022, 04:39:55 AMNeat duo to watch, Karl. Can't remember if I liked Revolution, but if I recall it is a Corsican Brothers farce with Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland in dual roles?VS

QuoteEver After is an American romantic drama film inspired by the Cinderella fairy tale. Andy Tennant directed it, and it stars Drew Barrymore, Anjelica Huston, Dougray Scott, and Jeanne Moreau. Tennant, Susannah Grant, and Rick Parks wrote the screenplay. George Fenton composed the original music score. The film removes the Cinderella tale's usual pantomime and comic/supernatural elements and instead treats the story as historical fiction, set in Renaissance-era France. It is often seen as a modern, post-feminist interpretation of the Cinderella story. (Source)
QuoteBridget Jones's Diary is a romantic comedy film directed by Sharon Maguire and written by Richard Curtis, Andrew Davies, and Helen Fielding.

However, her life changes when two men vie for her affection, portrayed by Colin Firth and Hugh Grant. Jim Broadbent and Gemma Jones appear in supporting roles.
