    Corey, I'm with you. Sometimes I just get bit by the B-monster movie bug. The flicks that help me with it are: Lake Placid Mimic The Relic (aforementioned) Ghost and the Darkness Deep Blue Sea

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    I'm just following the posts here - I don't read the comics and know only a bit about Spidey lore (I did read the comic when it ran in the daily paper). While I have very much liked the way that Raimi handled GG and Doc Ock (with depth and reality and humanity), I'd like to see Venom as...

    Batman Begins (2005)

    For those counting, I've watched BB at least 10 times, probably more. Love, love the movie. Anyway, was very surprised no one has posted about this . Warner has given the official green light for a sequel to Batman Begins, and while Chris Nolan has not officially been named as director, with...

    The Last of the Mohicans - 1992 Version

    Like many here, LotM is one of my all-time favorite films...easily in the top 3. Hard to add to all the great comments and insights here. I do wish there was a high quality DVD release of the theatrical version, as I like it better than Mann's later cut. I saw this in the theater in the...

    American Idol - Season 5

    Put me down as another Chris D. fan/rooter. I think he will make it very far into the competition; he has the talent, presence, and backstory to make him a (deserved, IMNSHO) favorite.

    Moonlighting Season 3 - Feb 7, 2006

    While the show was in decline after Season 3, ABC really treated the show badly and essentially doomed it to failure and cancellation. Season 4 is when, I think, the show Roseanne started, and I remember being pissed that the network kept choosing to air THAT show over Moonlighting in the same...

    "Make a celebrity disappear" machine

    The sad answer is yes. If there wasn't money to be made from it - i.e., if people weren't buying this crap - it wouldn't be around.

    Batman Begins (2005)

    I'm very much shoulder-to-shoulder with Chuck on BB. Since purchasing it, I've watched it at least 10 times, which is not something I ever do anymore. The film just continues to grow and prove its quality over repeated viewings. I don't think it's perfect, but I think this and Spidey-2 are...

    "Make a celebrity disappear" machine

    While there are celebrities I find loathsome or at least monumentally unappealing, I'd rather make readers of People/Us/tabloids disappear. There'd be no coverage if there wasn't money in it. Why anyone thinks they have a right to invade someone else's privacy solely because the second person...

    She said yes

    Ah, Rochester. Home of two seasons: Broil and Arctic Gloom. Lived there from 1991-1993. Could not pay me enough to move back. The only thing I miss is the sky; the effect of the lake on the cloud formations was friggin' amazing, and there were some breathtakingly awesome late afternoon and...

    Pink Panther Review

    I tried. I wanted to laugh. I just found them all so much in the category of "seen it 753 times before already" that I barely laughed. And as I said, too many of the jokes depended on people being unbelievably stupid. I love the Airplane! movies, and the original Naked Gun. "Dumb," schtick-y...

    Pink Panther Review

    Out of curiosity, James, did your friend like it? This is a movie I just can't imagnie anyone liking. It's so bad and such a bundle of well-worn "jokes" that I seriously can't imagine someone over the age of 8 thinking it was funny, let alone truly enjoyable. My friend, who is generally more...

    Pink Panther Review

    Went to see the remake of The Pink Panther last night, thanks to a free pass I snagged from a local radio station. Frankly, I did not want to go, but a friend who had just had surgery did, and it was a nice way to treat her while she's relatively inactive. How was it? In a word: derivative...

    Alien vs. Predator 2 in the works

    I think Highlander 2 (theatrical cut) and Batman & Robin are waaaaay ahead of AvP for most hated sequel.

    American Idol - Season 5

    The twins were hot. While the singing one could sing, she wasn't great; I agree that her looks had a lot to do with her making it to the next round, but that's not totally invalid. Part of being the "American Idol" is the whole package, not just the voice. Why does Simon look away? I'm...

    Survivor Panama Exile Island season 12 (merged)

    Already rooting for Terry (the jet fighter pilot) and Misty. Shane picked a bad time to quit smoking - while I applaud his desire to quit a 3-pack a day habit (!), can't help but wonder if his resulting crankiness isn't going to hurt him in the long run. Not impressed with any of the younger...

    Tribute to Redheads

    I've always thought of Laura Linney more as a blonde, but there is some reddish color there. Some of the pics I posted are now x'ed out. Life on the Web.

    Space Shuttle Challenger, 20 years after

    Senior year in high school, fourth period. Art class. I distinctly remember hearing the news from the PA system, and the shocked silence the settled on the class. I didn't see footage until I got home that afternoon. TVs with any reception, let alone cable, were very rare in those days (VCRs...

    As the original poster, I said ALL redheads are eligible for HTF worship - bottle or natural, it's all great to look at.
