Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Time Changes Things’

So is a million dollars the going rate for a liver? I would have started at $500,000. That would have probably been enough. Love these recaps. Love them! Minor typo, however. "Dusty lil’ prairie rose Scarlett and secret Brit Avery do their live radio performance." Avery is not the Brit! Please correct to "Gunnar."

Re: “Forward Into the Past: Russian Sci-Fi Spectacle Hard to Be a God at Belcourt

Got a chance to see this last night. I struggled getting through the first hour; it took me that long to adjust and immerse myself in its world and surrender to the filth. But once I did, I found myself mesmerized and exhilarated. It's been a long time since a film worked me over to this degree - perhaps the Belcourt screening of POSSESSION a few years back.

Sorry if this post makes no sense, but I had a tough time sleeping due to all the sloshing mud and clanking metal in my head.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Time Changes Things’

Beverly reminds me of cigarettes for some reason. Cigarettes really knows how to hold onto a grudge. Damn, lady. Sorry Donnie and Marie times with Deacon didn't work out in the big hair, baby-faced days of the early nineties (late eighties?) but let.it.go. Help a brother out. Literally.

I will forgive that whole obviously-faux Pacific Ocean background shot because this show manages to do a really good job making people look legitimately younger in flashbacks. Honestly impressive.

Jade Pinkett St. Smith's Super Sweet 16 Party was, I think, supposed to be SO L.A. but it kinda seemed pretty tame. Luke should have loosened up, enjoyed the bubbles and danced like no one was watching. I understand he had to get back to Nashville (on the Concord, apparently because he arrived in town like an hour later) to deal with the sexy times teens but maybe just leave in the morning and don't make Jill St. John all frowny faced at her own party. Guess it just wasn't his cuppa whiskey (I'm never letting that go). Is Jade coming back? I can't tell.

Scarlett is getting a backbone. Dating outside her small circle of friends is helping her become all independent woman. Now, enunciate them words, girl! Stop moving your mouth like a lazy, sunning puppy biting at soap bubbles and make people fear you!

There is literally a different woman tending to baby Credence in every episode and none of them are Juliette. She seems the logical choice to have credible teen talk.

Rayna's 90s (80s?) hair needs its' own show! She should have been rolling on the hood of a Jaguar with that hair. It was perfection.

Please never take this show away!


I'm so lonely.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Time Changes Things’

"I’d hate to be the therapist who has to listen to Colt recount the tale of driving his father home from the airport after his hook-up with a pop singer half his age turned out badly, so that his father could lecture him about his not having sex with the daughter of his ex-fiancée."

In Tennessee that's called "the talk."

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘Time Changes Things’

It is a sad state of affairs when two horny teenagers show more sexual maturity than all of their parents combined. I’d hate to be the therapist who has to listen to Colt recount the tale of driving his father home from the airport after his hook-up with a pop singer half his age turned out badly, so that his father could lecture him about his not having sex with the daughter of his ex-fiancée.

And someone needs to have a serious talk with Beverly. Let it go, hon. You were never really that good.

Re: “Five Reasons to See Ball of Fire Today at Belcourt

I think Bilge Ebiri had a great thread recently on Twitter about the best musical scenes in non-musicals. I voted for PULP FICTION, the Madison in BAND OF OUTSIDERS, and the "Cheers, Here's to Love" number over the closing credits of DOWN WITH LOVE, a movie I love more every time I see it.

Forgot about RIO BRAVO, which would be right up there. And I just remembered Robert Mitchum and Lillian Gish singing "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" in evil/good counterpoint in THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER.

Re: “Five Reasons to See Ball of Fire Today at Belcourt

People sure loved it in PULP FICTION. I even like the SPIDER-MAN 3 number, but in some ways that goofy, overstuffed threequel is my favorite of those movies. Certainly the most Raimi-esque.

Re: “Five Reasons to See Ball of Fire Today at Belcourt

"4. The awesome musical number featuring drumming great Gene Krupa."

This sequence seems more Hawks than Wilder. Hawks would sometimes let the movie stop for a musical interlude (Lauren Bacall's songs in TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT and THE BIG SLEEP, the back-to-back Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson songs in RIO BRAVO). OTOH, Wilder did let Marilyn Monroe sing a few songs in SOME LIKE IT HOT.

As Farran Nehme (the Self-Styled Siren) pointed out, one of the most appealing things about old movies is "musical numbers in movies that aren't musicals." When someone tries to revive this in recent times -- as in SPIDER-MAN 3 -- fans go ballistic and demand the director's head.

Re: “Five Reasons to See Ball of Fire Today at Belcourt

6. The sheer spectacle of watching 6'4 ft. Gary Cooper pull off imitating an earnest Poindexter-style intellectual for an almost two-hour running time, and doing a pretty credible acting job of it.

Re: “"She terrified people"

Whether ornot a couple/person is gay is not the problem with adoption. it is the "closed" part. I am adopted, although not through the GT society. It took me 40 years to obtain my original birth certificate and my adoption was all within the family of my birth mother. her mother and sister took me from her. The precursor to adoption should be if you can love and financial care for a child with the love and attention required.
We, as a society, will never rid ourselves of predjudice if people don't let it go. I wouldn't care if a gay adopted me, if they raised me to be myself and gave me love and medical care and spent time with me.

Layla ordered a sea breeze. A SEA BREEZE. I repeat: a sea breeze. She's not Layla from 2015 at all! She's Sylvia from 1983 and her nobody called today.

Re: “ICYMI: The Batman v Superman IMAX Event at Opry Mills

By the time this movie comes out, next March, the entire film will probably be leaked online. Then what's the point in seeing it -- unless you want the IMAX or 3D experiences.

What is with baby Tussaud? I get the creeps every time I see them holding that motionless zombie spawn.

Yes! When I deciphered Scarlett's mumble comment I said to my cat, "I hope Ashley is back this week!"

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘The Storm Has Just Begun’

"...and the rock she threw from inside her glass house ricocheted and nailed her right in the forehead." Can we make that actually happen on the next episode?

And was anyone else totally creeped out by the Luke/Jade rendezvous? Telling someone you used to kiss their poster in 8th grade and then sleeping with them is just a little...odd.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘The Storm Has Just Begun’

Hah, i didn't notice that. I'd guess the CMHoF has some wonderfully asinine legalese that says they have to use the legal full name of the facility.

Which means that by the time 'Nashville' goes into syndication, they'll have to re-dub the line again to say "There's a reason I brought you to the Tostitos Country Music Hall Of Fame Presented By Nissan."
