Oppenheimer - I've been fascinated by this story for a long time, had a family member who worked with "Oppie"'s brother. This movie is the big treatment of the story.

Yeah, tragic musicians have to try real hard to seem novel, but compared to another franchise re-boot, especially the Mad Max universe, which has been going forever, it should be easy.

Re: Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

I couldn't help but think that the whole post-apocalyptic Australia, Mad Max, Road Warrior thing is used up. Been there, seen that. It's not fun like Star Wars, the movie doesn't create momentum,...

Fascism is less a description and more of an accusation in our time and place, somebody you don't like politically who veers to the right side of the political spectrum.

I have a DVD that dates way back, do wish for a better version. The closest I have come was a box set that used it as filler, but it's still DVD, though not a bad one.

Same thing with The Keep,...

Re: ‘Furiosa,’ ‘Garfield’ lead slowest Memorial Day box office in deca

No surprise. Too many movies that are either uninteresting, well worn retreads, etc. Do we really need another installment in the Mad Max universe or another Ape Planet? I don't. I do have some...

Hearsay about celebrities after their deaths. Do we give credence?

Re: Hearsay about celebrities after their deaths. Do we give credence

I'd go with "just move on". There's nothing productive about post-mortem rumors and accusations. The perpetrator is dead, can't be convicted, absolved or confronted. I can see why people drag up...

Nope, but I never looked, never expected it. This is probably a forlorn quest since most people alive today have never heard of the movie.

Re: Satyricon: Is there an edition where the dubbing always matches li

Good dubbing is something I've never seen. I'd rather just do subtitles. It's not just the matching of lips, but the inflection, emotion and everything else about dubbing. It just doesn't work...

Re: Hearsay about celebrities after their deaths. Do we give credence

For a lot of crimes, the statute of limitations ends with death. Being a cynic, I know that money, fame and influence have a malign effect on behavior and I know that the rich and famous pay people...
