  1. True. I know about My Sharona because of that one scene in With Honors even though I've never seen the film and have no intention to. Here's an unpopular opinion - Joel Schumacher was an underrated director and his Batman movies weren't that bad. OK, Batman and Robin did suck and can't really be redeemed as camp but I chalk that up to poor casting and writing than directing. Unpopular opinion number 2 - I'd gladly take Schumacher's Batman films, including Batman and Robin, over whatever the hell DCEU is. I blame British Comic Book Writers (BCBW) for turning DC Comics so dark in the first place and many of them hate superheroes, thus we get DCEU's contemptible, nihilistic, (except for Shazam), and downright depressing versions of Superman and Batman. In short, the BCBW aesthetic is detrimental to what superheroes should be viewed as. That's why Marvel is beating them hand over fist.
  2. I didn't hate it but I only thought it was OK. I was more impressed with the dancers, actually. Unpopular film opinion - Randolph Scott was better than John Wayne.
  3. Alright, I take back what I said about The Music Man. The Shipoopi is awesomeness personified as is the opening rhythmic song on the train at the beginning and the song the townspeople sing when Harold Hill arrives. And "The Telephone Song" from Bye Bye Birdie is a great scene. They had The Scarlet Coat on today earlier this morning. It just isn't the same unless it's on the 4th of July. Strangers on a Train is on later. Definitely will watch. The murder at the amusement park is definitely one of the best scenes in film. And tonight they're honoring Jessica Tandy, which is good because she really was an underrated actress.
  4. Inspired by Lindsay Ellis' latest video, and I don't know how unpopular it is around here, I declare that Titanic is more than a good movie. It's a great movie. Great acting, great sets, great cinematography, great effects, and great direction. I never understood the hate or the asinine nitpicks. It was a nice love story. If there was a flaw, it's the fact that Rose married and later had children and grandchildren. It would have been better if she remained a spinster. She could have still gotten those photos taken of all the things she did without a husband and stuff.
  5. As much as I love Soap Dish, the whole revelation about Montana Moorehead would never fly now due to our growing understanding of trans people. If they ever did a musical version (because it ain't gettin' remade in a time where soap operas are near extinction), they'd have to change Montana's character entirely.
  6. I'm not happy that The Devil's Disciple and The Scarlet Coat aren't being shown today. Those are personal faves. Still, we've got 1776. Love it despite New York constantly abstaining. There's a point where John Hancock almost hits the New York representative with a flyswatter, and every year I hope he goes through with it. Also, "Mama, Look Sharp" and "Molasses to rum to slaves" never fail to give me chills. Never seen Yankee Doodle Dandy. I might this year. Afterwards, we have a bunch of musicals! I think I'll watch Bye Bye Birdie; not a fan of The Music Man (West Side Story was robbed) but the one I really want to see, On the Town, is on a 2 AM and I'll be asleep by then.
  7. Yes, yes, yes. My Darling Clementine, The Searchers, and Stagecoach are on tonight. But The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 is on TCM Underground tonight!
  8. Tonight's movie theme is all about horseys, apparently. Never cared for horse movies, myself. Props for Westerns. That's what I think of movie horses.
  9. Tonight are a bunch of feel good movies. I'm guessing they're showing them to lighten the mood what with the pandemic and all that. Pretty good line up: Singing in the Rain - Five'll get ya ten Lina Lamont was a huge inspiration for Harley Quinn. Annie - Loved this as a kid. Still have a soft spot for it. Carol Burnett should have gotten a Best Supporting Actress nomination, IMO. Top Hat - Never saw it. Probably won't be able to see it because I've been up since 5 AM and I need my sleep. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - And they give Beauty and the Beast crap for "being about Stockholm Syndrome". Those idiots have never seen SBfSB. If you hear someone one going on about the false Beauty and the Beast Stockholm Syndrome, kidnap this person, tie them to a chair, and force them to watch SBfSB. Then ask them about their thoughts on Stockholm Syndrome. Gigi - Never seen it.
  10. Oh, Clash of the Titans, you delightfully camp cult classic. The movie should be called "Watch Lawrence Olivier sleepwalk through a film, Maggie Smith being restrained actingwise, and the glory that is a half naked Harry Hamlin". One thing that irks me about this movie is that Perseus' mother gets cut out quite early. The whole myth of Perseus actually revolves around her. It's because of her that Perseus goes on his big journey. Then again, this isn't supposed to be a 100% retelling of the story of Perseus and I love it regardless. Also, the Medusa and Kraken are amazing. Could have done without the annoying owl, though.
  11. Dammit Handmaid's Tale. You did goofy shit that annoyed me last season but damned if that teaser didn't rope me back in for more.
  12. The Nanny is the best sitcom to have debuted in the 90s. Also, Just Shoot Me is very underrated. Also The Handmaid's Tale is camp in its purest form, or rather has become such. Now if there was just a stealthy way to keyword it on IMDB in its ironic form.
  13. Does everyone on Will and Grace count? I know it's a groundbreaking show and I feel like a traitor to gaykind for not liking it, but all four characters on that show are loathsome individuals. The Always Sunny Gang could take pointers from the Will and Grace crew.
  14. So this new Batwoman will be dark and psychotic? Cancel the show. Just cancel the show.
  15. Spider-Man (2002) is the best superhero movie. Yes, even better than the original Superman and Batman films. Even better than the Nolan Batman films. Better than the Avengers movies despite me loving Infinity War, Endgame, Black Panther, and The Guardians of the Galaxy films. I don't like how the Raimi Spider-Man movies are being ragged on of late. They're quite enjoyable and fun. Even Spider-Man 3 has its moments despite the miscasting of Topher Grace. I'm going further - Tobey Maguire is the best Spider-Man. Tom Holland is charming but I like Tobey Maguire more, maybe because there's no baggage of Tony Stark in them. The Raimi Parker has to do things himself without a multi billionaire godfather helping him. And he struggles just to make it in the big city. That's quite relatable. Also, Kirsten Dunst was perfect as MJ. I liked her bubblyness. I liked her charm. I don't know how unpopular it is here but I love Grease. Grease is a nice movie. I don't know why people hate on it.
