    Austin Movie Nights!

    Thanks for yet another wonderful concert! Unfortunately we couldn't stay to the end, but the family and I had a great time, especially Anika as she got to play with Mark's dog, and all the other dogs she could find on the hill. :)

    As will the family brood and I. :) As for Austin movie nights, maybe HD video will once again create a resurgence of interest. Of the many titles that have so far been announced for Blu-ray, here is a list of the ones I am especially looking forward to:2001: A Space Odyssey(Warner)Angels in...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    With a passion! It is not a simple coincidence that Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford have never made a film together since. :frowning: Thanks for the recommendation for "Soldiers and Saints", sounds like a real hidden gem. :emoji_thumbsup: Another reminder for my fellow Austinites: Last...

    Yes, it was "TLC's Rides", the HD version showing on Discovery HD Theater. I posted some pics of the incident on the thread linked above for anyone who might be curious.

    Austin Movie Nights!

    So I was playing catch-up with some shows I recorded on DVR and saw two shows I just had to post threads on: Jay Leno, driving a $500k Porsche, loses control at ~165mph at Talledega Bizarre appearance by Michael Schumacher on Speed Channel's 'Dream Car Garage' If anyone is interested I can...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I see Saw II was overwhelmingly voted the Best Horror Film of 2005 in IMDB's annual Best/Worst of polls. I personally thought Saw was brilliant and thrilling, but I’ve generally avoided sequels. From those that have seen it, what did you think – or is it too early in the year to be discussing...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I was thinking the same thing. Especially after Texas won what many sports analysts are saying was the single greatest college football game of all time, and Vince Young's absolutely freakish performance as the greatest individual performance in the history of the game. All that talk about USC...

    Jay, you'll love this then: Quote: 2005 USC schedule/results – from ESPN Week 1 USC 48 at Axis of Evil 12 Though Saddam was sidelined for violating team rules, the two-headed attack of Iran’s President Ahmadinejad and North Korea’s Kim was supposed to be formidable. “A man must not...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Texas remains a plus one touchdown underdog against USC, but on paper, Texas appears to have a huge advantage in both defense and special teams performance, and matches up pretty well with USC on offense stats. In percentages, here is the advantage each has over the other team in categories...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    It looks like USC is currently about a one-touchdown favorite against Texas in the Rose Bowl. I wonder how much of that spread is a result of the ongoing felony assault investigation on some of the players, including stand out starter, Cedric Griffin! Mack Brown may even bench all the players...

    Just got back from a screening of King Kong... WOW! No spoilers, but let me just say that if the Oscars had a category for Best CGI Character, Kong, and all the folks responsible for bringing him alive would easily be the unanimous winners. Truly remarkable! I will also strongly suggest...

    If you don't want to wait until Januray 4th to watch a #2 Texas team take on the #1 team, today (12:30pm) Texas visits Duke for a classic #1 vs #2 basketball game. CNN was reporting this was the first time in over 30 years that there has been a #1 vs #2 matchup (with the obvious exception of...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Reggie Bush = Vince Young performed like a star, but with 15% of the votes already being cast before today’s game, and after his disappointing game against A&M he was already facing terrible odds, and after Reggie Bush unbelievable performance against UCLA I’m fairly certain he is a lock now...

    Well.. the forum makes it's big move/upgrade in a couple hours... Cross your fingers for a smooth transition! I'm not sure if all the threads will survive, but it should be quite an eye opener when you see how different the forum is going to look.

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I will not be home for the holidays, so it will have to be next week for me. Which reminds me, the name of the movie that I was trying to remember when we were all over at Hanks last is called Home for the Holidays: It is a really nice and funny film, perfect for Thanksgiving. It was...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    That is sad news! BTW: Looking through the photos from that site's Gallery gave me chills! I assumed most of the interior shots in the film were staged, but that clearly wasn't the case. They even had a photo of the tunnel with all the rubber suits hanging on the wall. The series of shots of...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Thanks Hank, enjoyed the company! I'm glad I made it in time to see the brilliant ending of Night of the Living Dead. BTW, it came out in 1968. Hard to believe this film is nearly forty years old already! The first time I watched this I was in High School and it really gave me the creeps...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    Was my pleasure! Thanks for hosting, and glad you like '96' - I'm hooked on it now. For those that never venture outside the sanctuary and safety of our Austin threads, you might get a chuckle out of a series of posts a few of us made regarding the upcoming King Kong release. Keep in mind...
