Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

I've read that Hitchcock blamed VERTIGO's box office failure on Stewart's aged appearance (he was 50), but the fact is that VERTIGO was an art film and not to a lot of people's taste. Some people just can't get with the languid pacing.

It's still too offbeat for a lot of people, judging from the online comments I see along the lines of: "I just saw VERTIGO, and I don't get it. Why do people think this is a good movie?"

Maybe if Stewart were pursued up the stairs by a rolling fireball at the end, it would appeal to more people.

That is a story even more sordid than VERTIGO (and similar in some ways):…

Novak was dating Sammy Davis Jr while she was filming this. (That was for you, Yoyomoi)

How many idiots will pay to watch an 88-second preview, then leave the theater? Probably a lot.

Actually Thoroughbred is a Carmike theatre, not Regal.

Re: “An Obsessive's Love Letter to Vertigo, Now Playing at Belcourt

It was amusing to read the infuriated comments when the Sight & Sound poll named VERTIGO the best movie ever made ... most of them from people who were upset because THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION wasn't named the best.

Hey, it tops the IMDb poll! Get with it, critics!

Art is precious for any community. Such things matter a lot.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘You’re Lookin’ at Country’

Thanks! Ever since I've started reading your reviews I've been thinking of new and exciting ways to describe her too. :) (other ones are: 'a sixth grade production of High School Musical', 'a flower fondly pressed into a tattered copy of Romeo and Juliet' and 'the fairy who got left behind on the way to Neverland because she was distracted by a laugh on the wind')

I am pretty sure that's a Miranda original! Very well done.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘You’re Lookin’ at Country’

I am applauding this above Scarlett definition. Bootleg Disney Princess FTW.
Is that a comment-original or an older Spurgeonism I missed, Miranda?

I would have gone with "a crate of bruised fundraiser oranges" but bravo as usual, Ashley, always a pleasure.

Re: “Nashville Children's Theatre's production of James and the Giant Peach is led by a strong cast — and some technical wizardry

Not doubting Mr. Brady's theatrical knowledge or vigor, yet must disagree with his comment on the lack of tactile consideration Nashville Children's Theatre's staff takes in this, and indeed, each and every production shared with its Middle Tennessee's community. Puppets designed by one of the nation's greatest hand sewn by NCT's own Kim Townsend , costumes that are always conceived and stitched in-house by Patricia Taber and Katie Sellers, scene imagery created from hand cut pieces of paper layered upon each other to create the moving images on the screen by the recognized Colin Peterson...It is difficult, and totally unexpected, for an audience member to know the details involved in a full musical production. And although Nashville is full of opportunities for theatrical experiences, I do expect those whose job is it to report on them to do it with knowledge. I am certain that Artistic Producing Director, Scot Copeland, would be happy to take your call.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘You’re Lookin’ at Country’

Once again, Luke was perfectly justified being angry at her (though his award comments were not cool) and Rayna was being awful yet he has to apologize and she comes out looking like an angel sigh... And I so hate the TV idea that prenups are a sign of disrespect/a lack of trust they are a smart idea and modern society certainly justifies it. I like Luke too, I didn't want to because he's the Deacon/Rayna Disposable Love Interest #27309 and that means he's supposed to be the jackass or cheat or get tossed aside but I can't help it, he's smart, nice, a good father and business savvy and he isn't awful like Deacon or Rayna are. (#TeamLuke, #TeamJuliette, #TeamLayla and #TeamZoey)

Scarlett, (the bootleg Disney Princess doll in your local drugstore) was actually kind of adorable this episode. Deacon too (minus the anti-Luke comments) and I liked the idea of them being com mentors along side the audience.

This episode was fun (again minus Rayna being terrible and Luke getting shit on) episode looks like it is going to be a category five shit storm for me. Looking forward to it (if only for your review!)

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘You’re Lookin’ at Country’

Ray LeRoy, I agree with you completely that the show, script, acting, music etc is fantastic! But I think Ashley's commentary is also fantastic. It's poking fun at the characters, because they can be pretty darn dumb! Anyways, haven't you ever guilty-pleasure watched a show? It's all in good fun. We all secretly love ABC soap dramz.

Re: “Nashville Recap: ‘You’re Lookin’ at Country’

What the heck is wrong with you people ? I've been in Nashville for 27 years as a singer songwriter. I know something about the ins & outs of the music business. I also know human nature & the difference between a good show & a piece of crap. "Nashville" has done a lot to depict our city & our music business to a national audience. The earlier film of "Nashville" with Lily Tomlin, probably didn't depict exact reality, but it was a good movie & a good story with great acting.

Miss Spurgen, I don't know where you are from nor what part of Nashville culture you operate in, but your pervasive negative dissing is mean & elitist! The acting is good, the music is excellent, the screen play is well written & the story is riveting! So please come down from your ivory tower & walk the streets with the rest of us.

Re: “'Beyond the Stereotyped South': Tamara Reynolds in NYT Photo Blog

Hi Dese and Dose. I grew up in Connecticut and lived in Brooklyn for ten years. I can say pretty confidently that no, it is not racist because being called a Yankee has nothing to do with race. You could call it "regionalist," I suppose, if you have to name it. It's my opinion that racism is not disliking another race or group of people; it's discriminating against a race of people who lack power on both an institutional and daily basis. Perhaps you'd get more calls back if you changed your attitude. You don't like being pigeon-holed because you're from the North; neither do the "yee haw" people you live among.

If there is anything that makes being a Northerner a bit uncomfortable in the South, it's people like you who insist on your own superiority.

Re: “Adrienne Outlaw talks Flex It!, Seed Space and her decision to leave Nashville

Back in the early 2000....I was all gun ho to be an Artist.....which I thought was ""SHOW and TELL".....I am so still so naïve I want to share time and stories....Did not know it was business{cut throat}......Anyway, I give Adrienne Outlaw to evalue my work. And write a criticize of my work......I gave her$300.CASH for this chore.....What I got back, she made a personal appointment in his office...Which was enjoyable visit but no suggests about me being an Artist....That was nothing he could do being Folk Art Director.of Tennessee......and letting me talk to him was worth more than $300..... more than enough she could do.....
