    Commercials that just irritate you....

    I *hate* those gnome commercials - I immediately associate them with Amélie, and it feels like such a cheap attempt at cashing in on that film that I have utterly despised them since making that connection. I also immediately turn off the radio when I hear "Rich Chocolate Ovaltine!", any of...

    Oooh, I guessed right on Short Live. Too bad I changed my vote from Clooney to Giamatti. [Update - missed the short animated; not surprised] 3/5 thus far.

    Commercials that just irritate you....

    Those in the NY area I'm sure truly appreciate the fine art of the US Window Factory radio commercials ... "WE TOLLLD YOU SOOOOOOOO!" and "OH MY GOD, WHAT A [insert awkward pause] NIGHTMARE!" Some of the most horrific voice acting I've ever heard; screeching nails on a chalkboard is a...

    Our Top 10 Lists of 2005 - "Time to throw down!"

    I started the tabulations today - I'm only going to do the Top 30 of the Top 10 direct stats, I'm not doing the weighted averages (even though the chart will have them they'll be meaningless) - the reason is that it takes a HUGE amount of time to compare each member posting in this thread with...

    Our Top 10 Lists of 2005 - "Time to throw down!"

    Oh, I'm still around, lurking ... :) Truthfully I'm so deep into my writing that I've taken very little time to come up above the surface and breathe. Even my DVD buying has suffered (oh, the shame! :)). Actually this list has been in my mind the past few days - I should have a good amount...

    Miyazaki TCM Tribute in January

    Shame I cancelled my cable service just the other day - this might've kept me going one more month. Good thing I own most of those titles on DVD, including my favorite film of all time (Kaze no tani no Nuasicaa).

    Our Top 10 Lists of 2005 - "Time to throw down!"

    Placeholder. Folks, I have had one very tumultuous year, and my moviegoing has suffered quite a bit. I've also been doing a tremendous amount of fiction-writing, lately with the intent on getting something published in print (I already have one book on my own website). I've only seen about 25...

    My first novel

    Hi all! I've been away from the board - and moviewatching/reviewing in general - for several months now, but I'm back, at least for a few weeks. I had been putting almost all my spare time into writing a fantasy novel. It's actually something I started back in 1986 (when I was in high...

    An 8.7 magnitude quake just occurred after an 8.2. I get notifications by email (and I have my MSN alert my cell phone so I get the messages immediately wherever I'm at). [EDIT] - The 8.7 was revised from the 8.2 - there was only one earthquake (though it was huge!) 2005/03/28 16:09 M 8.7...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: FOX Film Noir - LAURA

    Y'know, seeing this thread must be a sign. I was talking with a woman this weekend about films starring the man who my parents named me after (my middle name is Andrew). I've never actually seen a single one of his films, and this woman suggested this title as one she remembers well. Hmm, I...

    Well, I'm off to bed. 'Twas a fun evening (though I've had funner). I think Rock was fine (and funny), though he wasn't as classy as other hosts (certainly better than Goldberg). I'd have him back, but not next year. Just remember, in the Top 30 of HTF's Top 10 thread, we had 4 of the 5...

    *** Official 2004 Academy Awards Discussion Thread

    Well, at least the film that won this year was one of the only TWO films of the nominated I actually saw. Now I need to get my butt quickly over to see Scorsese's film, and see what all the hype was about. I did say in the Prediction thread that my guesses were based primarily upon popular...

    Not sure how Mystic River losing to Return of the King can be considered an embarrassment. Both were fine films, but Return had a HUGE epic scope that had no equal (that year). Plus, it was my favorite film then, so with Clint winning this year (M$B was not by far my favorite film), the universe...

    So, what was the best line of the night? Best speech? That for me would have to go to Foxx, that was a damned fine speech. As to line, other than Jeremy Irons quick quip, I can't think of one that had me rolling.

    12/24. Got .500 average, but I have definitely done better in the past. *Sigh*. Congrats to all the winners, but definitely to Eastwood and Baby. I may not have had it in *my* top 10, but it definitely was a quality film. Now...who do ya think's gonna host the 2006 Oscars? :)

    Wow, that was a quick listing...and wow, Clint! Congrats! 12/23. Edit - Hmm, this is going to go close to 12am anyway - I have to say, Gil, you SUCK at running the show. Bring back all awards to the show and let them take it from their seats.
