“‘A Boy and His Dog.’ I enjoyed that film though critics didn’t seem to like it.”

Legend,’ which is not hated but not as loved as it should be. It’s a mix between ‘Dark Crystal’ and ‘Labyrinth,’ and it has the best devil of all time.”

“‘Erik Viking.’ I like the ridiculousness of it.”

“‘Dark Knight Rises.’ It’s not a bad movie, but it has received a lot of bad press.”

Yeah. But, before I can even talk about it I have to tell about the best show on late night from Knology.

The funniest show from the best company. The original humor from this guy in Lawrence that just did his best parody of Bob Dylan. The "not so late show" could get more info out of one than water-boarding.

Am sorry that I bared witness to this while flipping channels.

Well, you were in your own house, so it's okay to be changing into your pajamas while you watch TV. :-)

Dude, you totally rock my world. That late show guy is a freakin' moron.

Most of my favorite westerns were panned. Don't care. Sam Peckinpah should've gotten an Oscar for for best director for the The Wild Bunch. Eli Wallach should have gotten best supporting actor for his role as Tuco in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSkeQk...

Didn't The Wrestler get good reviews? I guess I don't pay much attention to critics...their punch-word opinions mean about as much to me as a middle school girl's opinion on parenting.

"Sleek, Powerful, Rollercoaster Ride!"
That could be Dark Knight....or Battleship. One was great, one was some of the worst acting, dialogue, and plot in movie history. Fortunately, I knew which would be good and which wouldn't be worth the energy to run my TV for the two hours to watch.

'Wild Wild West' with Will Smith, Kevin Kline & Kenneth Branagh.

Wes Anderson's "The Life Aquatic"

I absolutely love it, but it only has about 50% on RT. People either love it or hate it.

Love that movie too! One of my favorite from Bill Murray (but I like all his movies).

"Just had to get that out." Bought that movie and have saw it a dozen times. I was so happy when Tallahassie got his twinkie.

GI Jane when she said you can lick my ..... couldn't type what she really said for violation policy.

A civilian boat had just been surfed by a Japanese war plane and they were in the water about to be hit again when Douglas gave the order.

Leslie Swearingen 2 years, 7 months ago

No, man, surfed. The Japanese navy were in Pearl for some Rand R and surfing and then all hell broke loose. It ain't easy to surf over a yacht, you try it some time. Seriously, thanks for the heads up.

Made me want to ride a Clydesdale across the grand canyon.

I don't even care. I think I found my new OTS idol and his name is Gart. Keep, posting, man!

I really liked The Big Lebowski - the Dude is a character for the ages. I think people overlook the fact that the Coen brothers make so many serious dramatic action movies (Fargo, No Country for Old Men to name a few) The Big Lebowski was a movie that they could just have fun with I think! It's crazy!

Leslie Swearingen 2 years, 7 months ago

I agree with you there, I liked both The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men, in fact I probably like most of the movies the Coen brothers made.

Ishtar. Those patently awful songs alone were worth the price of admission.

One of my all-time favorite movies is "Hollywood Knights," which no critic liked. It has a great soundtrack, too.

Leslie Swearingen 2 years, 7 months ago

Skeleton Key and Skeleton Man U 571 love that movie totally. Own all three. I have the best or the worst movie collection depending on your view. Depends.

All the Conan movies (except the latest remake)
