There's an over-association between deserts and alien planets. I guess we could blame Mars and the Moon. And Tatooine.

Correct. I've had it on the shelf for a while. *Really* meant to watch it recently with Corman's passing, but I haven't done a good job with watching movies recently. My understanding is it plays...

I only once started The Ruling Class. In my memory, I did not recall it being a musical in the few minutes I watched. Kept meaning to go back to it. If you end trying to fill out the ballot for this,...

Tommy's been on my to-watch list for the last year. Once this countdown was selected, I was like, "well, I guess that's finally going to happen. And also that rewatch of Dancer in the Dark."

There's a lot of hiking around in the woods in this one. I like hiking around in the woods. I liked this movie, it left me really early wanting to go hiking in the woods. I can be pretty simple...

Which is to say, so if they got the lips to match up with the audio dubbing that their planning to do, try to think about why it's still not going to look or sound...

Why not speed up/slow down the audio to match the pre-existing movement of the lips?
That would also match the definition of "perfect" lip-syncing the article is going with.

I suspect there will be a thread for "Musicals for people who don't like musicals," which will be either empty or overly representative of the final countdown.

‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

Re: ‘Ideal’ movie running time is 92 minutes, poll claims

Ideál (1964) is 14 minutes.
Idéal (2022) is 2 minutes.
Idéal (2023) is 12 minutes.

The people in that poll were way off in their guesses. Not sure which one they were asking about.
