Trog (1970)

I'm not sure if this topic belongs in the Horror or Comedy section. Either way, I was looking forward to this movie SO MUCH and I wound up being so disappointed. It was released last week in the "Cult Camp Classics" Box Set (along with "The Big Cube"--which, believe it or not, I really enjoyed!--and...

Of the 7 shows I used to watch regularly on network, Medium got boring, now Studio 60 is gone, and I'm left with Friday nights' schedule on Ch. 2, Ghost Whisperer, Close to Home and Numbers. I only watch Close to Home because it is the time filler, and I still find Ghost amusing Uh, Anne? Close to ...

Ford was one of the greatest character men, whether playing a buffoon, as he did so nimbly on the old Bilko show, or as a canny veteran of politics as he did here. I completely agree with this! I was very surprised to see him in this, as every movie I've seen Paul Ford in has been a comedy and I've...

Only in the movies - can a man propose marriage two seconds after meeting the leading lady--and she accepts, willingly! Only in the movies-- can women cry a flood of tears and not resemble a raccoon afterwards. Only in the movies--can a dying paitient in a hospital bed look absoutely and totally rav...

PK, TERRIFIC post! You're right in both of our stories being somewhat similar. There was so much in your post that I found myself going, "Hey that happened to me too!" And apparently you have the somewhat OCD gene as well. Interesting how Ingrid in "Gaslight" seems to lead people to discovering othe...

Laura Nyro! I love her. What a voice! Re: Beck and Scientology. Ben, from what I know, he's always been a Scientologist, but it was after Midnite Vultures , that he got more into it. Honestly, I never really cared for Guero , but I loved MV and Odelay . Sea Change depresses me, but I'll admit I used...

I would have rather had "Yolanda and the Thief" as well. I love that movie. Actually, I love anything with Fred Astaire in it. He's the only reason I keep sitting through "The Towering Inferno" everytime I see it on tv and nothing better is on. I'm not springing for the whole box set because I don't...

Thanks for the nice words about my post Brad, MissG and Tracey. Sometimes I have a tendancy to ramble and when I reread my posts, I just cringe in embarrassment. Tracey, I'm with you on the overactive imagination part (actually, I never grew out of it--my imagination still works overdrive, especiall...

movieman, your wife has impeccable taste. However, I don't. Where No Man Has Gone Before William Shatner -- Rocketman I'm terribly upset. I really wanted to post that one and you beat me to it! I can't get enough of Shatner, even though I'm not a Star Trek fan. Anyway, it's that time of the day whe...

I've wanted to comment on this for the past few days, but I wanted to make sure I was making sense. Like a few of you, I was lonely growing up. Part of this is because I'm an only child, but also because I felt different from the other kids. I was shy and reserved and I just wanted to be left alone....

I love this thread! And I love that Robbie Williams "Rock DJ" video. I never thought it was gross. I thought it was hilarious. You can't have a good party without the greatest party song by the world's greatest party band: The B-52's!!! "Rock Lobster" http://youtube.com/watch?v=-UqKRGW6_rw "Dance th...

Congratulations, sugarpuss! This calls for a group sing-a-long... :wink: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK_jDA3qrUU Thanks! LOL, it's my theme song. Wait, I'm not sure if I really want that as my theme song. As many have said before me, it's always great when people vote on the schedules. Thank you...

If you happen to get TCM On Demand through your cable system, this was just added to the lineup today. It should be there for about a month. I missed seeing this on "live" TCM, so I'm glad I have to chance to see it anytime. It seems that the movies vary from cable company though. Someone mentioned ...

So, does it make me a bad person if I admit I watched some of the Paris "news" coverage Friday afternoon? Because I totally was. I just wanted to see her get thrown back into the slammer. It was absolutely surreal to see all the media attention on her though. Helicopters, press conferences and "expe...

I'm not exactly the target audience for Funday night, but to be honest, I'm not a huge fan of Bringing Up Baby to begin with. I've seen it twice and I've never warmed to the story. For kids? Um, no. To be honest, I think about when I was a kid and classic movies weren't on the top of the list of "Th...
