Re: THE MENS ROOM

Dear Klondike I have found that the back-fastening variety easier to master than the front fastening type. The back-fastenings only require a lateral movement and this can easily be achieved one-handed (after a little practice of course.) ‘The one-hand-blind pinch-release’ – I wasn’t aware that this...

Ann Bancroft – Beauty and Talent Gorilla At Large - 1954 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35zuaikJvCM I’ve read that Ann Bancroft didn’t care much for these early movies, where the studio was trying to market her as a glamour girl. The Bra – a perennial speed-bump to a man’s passion. But, with a litt...

Re: JAPANESE MOVIES - ANY OTHER FANS ?

Juzo Itami Japanese film director and writer. Active in the 1980’s/1990’s Most of his movies were satirical (sometimes darkly) observations of Japanese society, culture and manners. I’ve only seen three of his movies, so am not really an ‘Informed Source’ My favorite is ‘Tampopo’. On paper, this is ...

Re: ,The Best Character Actors?

I don’t have a long list, bur a few memorable actors that spring to mind are: Lee J. Cobb - For his amazing and emotional performance in ’12 Angry Men. ’ Some of the other actors around that table would also qualify for inclusion here. Gladys Cooper who played an unforgettable mother from hell in se...

Re: The Women's Room

The British Isles, otherwise known as the United Kingdom is a union of the kingdoms of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (or Ulster). Don’t ever refer to a Scottish, Irish or Welsh person as ‘English’ (unless you want to p**s-them-off. Ask Stuart!). They are fiercely proud if their natio...

When Television Was Great

‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ (1968) Thursday morning 2:00 am. TCM. An unusual movie at an even more unusual time-slot, as this movie is aimed squarely at kids. I was a big fan of the original TV series – essential viewing for a six-year-old. Barry Gray’s theme music was fabulous, and still gives me chills ...

Re: Sci-Fi That Makes You Think

Dear Bryce, Half the movies you mention are anime, which I don’t consider mainstream. Of the others you mentioned, ‘Children Of Men’ was excellent and scary. ‘V For Vendetta’ was dull, politically biased and a pale imitation of 1984. ‘Eternal Sunshine’ was a decent enough movie despite the fact that...

I’m afraid I’ll have to concur with Ridley Scott – Sci-Fi is DEAD, D-E-A-D, DEAD . “What I tell you three times is true” – Lewis Carroll At least as far as movies and television goes. If I see another so called Sci-Fi show with some camo clad heart-throbs crab-walking through a desolate landscape wi...
