    OT: Movies you probably never heard of but ought to check out.

    Probably someone has already mentioned Rashoman and The Seven Samurai. If not, they have now been nominated.

    OT: Movies you probably never heard of but ought to check out.

    You might have to have lived in a small town in West Texas (or the equivalent thereof) to really appreciate "The Last Picture Show". A minor classic.

    OT: The Old, the Obscure, and The Forgotten - Round 2

    Yup. Henry J. Kaiser made a valiant try to crack into the car market with the Kaiser-Frazer line but came a cropper.

    Max von Sudow was also great as the evil brewmeister in the McKenzie Bros. "Strange Brew", a very silly but very fun movie. Another vsbvf movie was "Waiting for Guffman", with the Second City gang.

    If you are not familiar with his "Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses", you have missed one of the funniest pieces ever written in the English language!

    Or, as Mark Twain famously said about the characters in "The Last of the Mohicans", "you wish they would all get drowned together". And in your suggested category, I would like to nominate "Gremlins" and "My Life as a Dog".

    Have we done this? If so, the mods can delete and I won't be mad (or transfer it to the right place). If not, here are a few I would like to nominate; "Down by Law", a Jim Jamusch film starring Tom Waits. "The Wrong Box", a British farce with Sir Ralph Richardson, Michael Caine. Peter...

    Longtime Boneyard Poster Passed Away - Robertelamin

    Robert was always chiding me for having the presumption, as a retired expat, to comment on events in the U.S., but mostly with his tongue firmly in his cheek. So sorry, Mano. He will be missed.

    OT: Funniest movie and/or TV show ever

    Movie; Gotta be Airplane. The original made for TV version of No Time for Sergeants (maybe Hallmark; was a 90 minute show, if I recall) was hilarious. All the humor of Hyman's book without the bombast of the theater movie Sgt. King was a treasure. For TV, for me, the Carol Burnett show. I...

    Poll: Pick the OTHER 2 starters for next year

    No way CW doesn't start. I don't think Paige will start the first game, but will, of course, get lots of minutes. If she does start, it will be Evina first off the bench.

    UConn vs. Temple Badass Awards

    I have seen rumors to that effect!

    Looks like Northwestern will not be a #1 seed after all.

    OK, OK, so they ain't gonna be a #2 seed. So sue me! At least they are no longer in UConn's way, if indeed they ever were gonna be!
