Re: New TCM General Manager...

I think with any change to front office management, time will tell. Everyone needs to have some patience and let the new management try and work their magic. Changes will happen but not very quickly. In TCM's case it is harder I am sure that many folks think. On average TCM broadcasts around 350 fil...

Re: What recent films have you seen?

I'm watching Star Trek - The Motion Picture right now on IFC. IFC probably cut the heck out of STTMP. The original running time of the movie was 132 minutes. Theh Robert Wise had a special directors cut issued for the dvd which ran 136 minutes and included updated visual effects and better sound ef...

Re: Robert Osborne Reluctantly Takes a Pass on TCM Festival 2015

I agree about what you wrote about Ben. He better begin referring back to a lot of notes he must have made over the years and paying close attention to the myriad of old Hollywood stars and the various behind the scenes people who frequent the Film Festival. Lets face it, as much as everyone loves R...

Re: Essential?

Based on the writings so far on this thread I can honestly say that some have indicated that they aren’t so interested in the selection of certain films to be included as an “Essential” but rather that the actual conversation of the film should be longer in some regards. I would agree with this opin...

Re: ACCOUNT SUSPENDED page @TCM?

You are not the only one.

I am assuming something is amiss over there. Some sort of technical issue.

I can not believe that my account was suspended due to something I wrote, but stranger things have happened.

I have tried sending correspondence directly to lzcutter (Lynn).

Re: LISTS

Unfortunately we can never go back. But for some of us we can sit in the past all we want and just rewatch old features over and over again. This is called living in the past. And there is nothing wrong with that. Eventually however, one needs to possibly grow. To deny the fact that there are many f...

Re: LISTS

To be honest, I can't comment on the last 20 years. Most of what I watch is so disappointing I'm not inspired toward increased viewing. As for the 1970s and 80s, there were good ones. There were great ones. But the work of Altman, Scorcese and Spielberg doesn't entertain me as much as that of their...

Re: LISTS

The 1960s. The culture changed. Music changed. Promising leaders were taken from us. And the era of classic movies came to a crashing end. Never again (so far) would the quality of American cinema be as consistently entertaining as it had previously been. Films of this decade initiated changes in t...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

Here is my Bella. She just turned 9 in December. Our family pooch, a mix of basset and beagle, who even though she has a few psychological scars from being in a puppy mill, she is the most wonderful pet we have ever had. She has been and will always be close to our hearts.

Re: TCM Message Boards Announcement

Well this seems to be an attempt by the administrators at TCM to totally take down the existing system and replace it with a system that is not only with the times but also can be upgraded at some point in the future, something the old system really had a lot of issues with. And the fact that they a...

Re: LISTS

Yeah I have been reading the threads started by TopBilled over at TCM. Only thing is that I have my own LISTS thread as well over thereon the Favorites Forum, but for some reason he felt the need to start yet another thread about the same subject. He does that a lot.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and hopefully a much better new year 2014! I posted the following photo over on the TCM Message Boards a few days ago and I think it captures the feeling I had when I was a child and hope to have again someday. The photo is of my family at Christmas in 1967. I ...

Re: Choo-choo-choose Your Own Essentials!

There have been some very fine lists of films being included in an Essentials List. But I have looked at it again and have felt that more different films could be recommended for inclusion. So what I have done is to make a list that has 100 films on it. I mean if you are really into list making this...
