    The Flash in the Media

    That's a tragic look.

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Just watched Fort Apache. Was Henry Fonda's character supposed to be heroic in this? As far as I could tell he led a bunch of people to their entirely unnecessary, stupid and senseless deaths. For NO reason. But at the end they were acting like he was a hero. Or was that just a cover-up for his stupidity?

    Joe Jackson's dead. But probably the rest of them. None of them are decent people, I don't think.

    I watched Calamity Jane last night and wow. The gay subtext of that movie is absolutely screaming. It's more of a romance between Doris Day and Allyn Ann McLerie than it is her and Howard Keel!

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    I watched Gentleman's Agreement! I liked it. It was preachy and earnest, but I think some of the points made in it are still valid today, especially the part about him realizing that the biggest lesson from the whole thing was about the "nice" people who claim to be against these things but do nothing about it, enable it and hide from any action. I really didn't want him to end up with Dorothy McGuire at the end. I know you're supposed to think she's now changed, but after that whole speech she made to him when she walked out the door about being happy to be born Christian, I thought he was better off without her. Plus, you could tell some of her own comments were so disingenuous about the whole thing- she never wanted him to be doing this at all, and she even said so. We're really supposed to believe she changed? There's no way she would be dating him if he was actually Jewish. This is the definitely the predecessor to movies like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner all the way through Green Book. You can see the similarities along with the similar criticisms even, like the protagonist of this movie not even being Jewish. John Garfield should have been the lead. Or at the very least, make Peck's character actually Jewish.

    Saw A Matter of Life and Death on Monday night. It was terrific! That was one of those I hadn't got around to seeing yet, but of course it lived up to its reputation. Great movie. I've made it a goal to watch more TCM, to catch up with films I haven't seen. I'll be watching Gentleman's Agreement tonight for the first time- it's one of just 10 Best Picture winners I haven't seen yet.

    Fosse/Verdon

    Is that what happened? I was confused because Gwen said later "I didn't know your wife was so sick she couldn't walk."

    Fosse/Verdon

    I had to look up what exactly Joan McCracken's "illness" was, only to find out that it was Type 1 diabetes. Boy, they really talked around that, didn't they? You wouldn't have a clue based on the vague way they alluded to some mysterious sickness that causes her an inability to walk at random times? What? I'm sorry, I'm a Type 1 diabetic myself and I cannot stand it when it's obvious that something has no idea how to portray symptoms of this condition or even what they look like. I know it was a lot harder to treat back then (especially Type 1, it would have been awful), but insulin existed, so she must have been using that at least. With no ability to check blood sugar levels though (or account for food with insulin probably), most likely she would have had fainting spells due to sudden lows- but symptoms of highs are constant thirst and urination, which is less visible. I'm not sure what that incident was supposed to be portraying in the rehearsal room, where just all of a sudden she's crying and can't walk. It reminded me of that part in Steel Magnolias, where Julia Roberts is perfectly fine and then all of a sudden has a fit and is screaming and throwing things at people until her mom feeds her orange juice against her will. Umm, what? Do people really not have any clue what low blood sugar looks like? If you don't faint straight out, you feel faint but you know that you need to eat or drink something (with sugar in it) fast. You're not mentally incapacitated. How do people not know this still?

    S05.E18: Godspeed

    Unless you care about Nora as a person (I do not) this show has nothing to offer its audience anymore. It's not about Barry. I once liked the idea of bringing in a kid from the future. I thought there were so many things they could do with that. They have executed this whole thing hideously. I never wanted the show to now be ABOUT the kid from the future. We don't need her carrying entire episodes as if she's the star (she is this season- it's unbelievable). I liked the idea of the future kid as an extension of WestAllen only, and the idea of the Flash family/legacy, not as the new star of the show! This is absurd. The show is crap. Every episode is terrible. They could have had the Tornado Twins, they could have tied it into comics canon. They've done NOTHING. And Nora is not interesting.

    The Flash in the Media

    This is like, hilariously accurate. She mentions every SINGLE person in the cast besides her. She includes photos of every person besides her. She's not even hiding it. I have to believe these two literally act like the other person does not exist on set, how do the rest of them not notice this?
  11. I see some other people saying they hope that Nick/Sabrina and Harvey/Roz are now the "canon couples," but I'd be very surprised if they don't go back to Sabrina and Harvey sooner rather than later. Especially now that they've finally gotten Harvey onboard with the witchcraft thing. But that guy's got to be the weakest actor in the cast by far.

    I just watched Kiss Me Kate and the best part about it was that Bob Fosse dance number near the end. That was awesome. Actually a lot of the dance numbers were really good.

    Veronica Mars Revival

    Are all the episodes out at once or are they airing weekly?

    Spoilers and Spoiler Discussion

    Starting to wonder if Nora winds up stuck in the past because the show wants to keep JPK around.
  15. They really need to get rid of Evita. There's no need for Ty to have some annoying girlfriend along for the ride. The show IS Ty and Tandy, imo. These episodes already improved on last season by pairing them for most of it, so I know they realize that now. They should be a complete duo as much as possible, love story included. No need for tagalong outsiders.
