    • Just recently saw The Heiress for the first time. Excellent film. Olivia de Havilland portrays the evolution of her character with perfection.

        Indeed. One of my favorite last five minutes of any film.

                Nah, That DC version of Snyder ruins everything he touches.

                • Finally saw Deadpool 2. Aside from Logan, I haven't seen any of the X-Men movies so I didn't get a lot of the jokes but I lost it when Deadpool called Josh Brolin "One Eyed Willie".

                  • 40 year old virgin was 9n yesterday. I forgot what nice places everyone lives in there despite working at Best Buy. Andy has a little poolside condo thing going on. Beth at the end has a massive king sized bed that looked like something from Cribs and a salt water aquarium in her bedroom despite working part time at Barnes and Noble.

                    That movie is 16 years old and has so much crude humor I wonder if it could be made. Also learned the E channel can drop shit, ass, show butts and use the n word.

                      I was in a hotel room Thursday night and caught Spaceballs on BBC or A&E or something. Editing for television completely ruins the movie. I can't imagine what they would do to Blazing Saddles.

                        I was listening to the radio while driving the other day and I think they were doing some 90s block. They played the song “Natural One” from “Kids” and the DJ reminded that when that “Kids” got an NC 17 rating back in the day. They smoke weed, go to the pool, and pass hiv between each other is the jist I can remember from that movie. I’d imagine the average 10pm tv drama on network addresses darker things than that movie today. The 90s were a very innocent time.

                          Kids is still a hard R...You won't see it on any TV station. It's one of my favorite movies of all time, as it felt like my own childhood in so many ways. Minus the HIV part...And the rape. I still have it on VHS and DVD, along with a bootleg tape I got from before it was available in rental places.


                          My high school sweetheart loved that song. The second strip tease I ever saw was to that song, and it was the first with any sort of happy ending for me. Folk Implosion...We made a lot of puns about "implosion" after that night.

                            I was really disappointed when the E channel didn’t go from 40year old virgin to Waterboy to Kids on a Sunday afternoon.

                              This didn’t age well when they went for Harvey Weinstein to comment on how controversial Kids was.
