    Looking for Title of Old SciFi movie

    Someone in the film made the point that no face is perfectly symmetrical -- there are always differences between the left and right sides. The fact that the spy's face was perfectly symmetrical indicated that it was some sort of mask or disguise.

    Looking for Title of Old SciFi movie

    Okay, one more movie, please. Vague memory of a movie about a government rocket project. There is a spy within the project. Someone places a mirror against a man's photograph, so that his face appears symmetrical -- we see the right side of his face, plus the reflected right side of his face...

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Thanks, Scott, for expanding my vocabulary once again. Japery - buffoonery, clowning, frivolity, harlequinade, prank, shtick.

    What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)?

    Your post prompted me to revisit Harry O. While I love Janssen's world-weary performance, I had forgotten that the dvds have no subtitles whatsoever, not even closed captioning. This is a real drawback, as some of my family members are hard of hearing. I wish that there were a website where...

    Russ, you've omitted the most important part of a Buck Rogers review - a completely gratuitous series of Erin Gray pics! Are you feeling all right?

    What's the last TV DVD/Blu-ray you bought?

    Yes, Chuck was a fun show. I'm drinking my coffee from a Buy More mug, as we speak. It's difficult for me to re-watch the show now, as it seems that the writers felt compelled to ALWAYS have an A-story, a B-story, and a C-story. The A-story (the Chuck-Sarah romance) was why I watched the show...

    Soap operas

    I was shopping at Best Buy for a TV for my mother, who is hard-of-hearing and thus appreciates videos that are subtitled. I brought with me a flash drive containing a video MKV file, so that I might test the various TVs on display as to their capability of displaying subtitles. The salesman...
