Doug, it's the first episode of 2020 that's not about 2019
RE: Cool Runnings. I taped it off of pay-per-view when I was in junior high. It played among the middle school set, let me tell ya.
Thank you for this.And, to follow up, Stefania Casini gives Robert De Niro and Gérard Depardieu a double handjob in "1900" (1976), directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. #TheMoreYouKnow
We had Cool Runnings taped onto VHS as well, and watched it a bunch.I watching it around a year ago with my kids (who are coincidentally, nearly the same age as Patrick and Erika's kids), and it was a huge hit.
I'm only ten minutes in (short work commute!) and I was laughing out loud in my car the entire time. GOO GOO DOUG
I was laughing out loud my entire car ride as well (which for me was about 30 minutes)!
RE: COOL RUNNINGSI can't get over this
There's a moment in Cool Runnings where Doug E. Doug says to Malik Yoba: "How about I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt." Please add your favorite Cool Runnings quotes below for Doug.
"Sanka you dead?" "Ya mon"
"Its not so much the heat, it's the humidity that'll kill ya." I use this any time it's cold.
"Ice?!? Ice?!?" "Well... It's kind of a winter sport, y'know."Speaking of movies you think you may have seen more than anyone else, Cool Runnings is one of mine (along with Heavyweights, it dominated my childhood movie rotation). It's an absolute gem, and everyone should see it.
OMG I'm dying
The Woman was Patrick's #5 of 2011 (Super 8 was #1). :)
GREAT TO HEAR YOUR JOKES TODAY, DOUG
Woops sorry to be a creepy unknown, this is Kelly
My favorite creepy unknown is Kelly. ;) <3
I enjoyed the discussion of Dead Man on Campus, a movie I love but figured no one else did. The Curve (with Matthew Lillard) was a movie with almost the exact same plot and I also love that movie. They are trashy but awesome.I have to weigh in on the debate about whether it's just a guy thing to be like, "I have to show you this movie!" (Great discussion btw.) I definitely do this to my boyfriend, in part because I feel like he's seen so many movies that I get excited when I can show him one he hasn't encountered yet that I know he'll love. In previous relationships, I also did this but with mixed results. I should've known a relationship with a previous partner was doomed when he fell asleep during a viewing of This Is Spinal Tap at 7pm. If I recall correctly, that same person never made it through 10 Things I Hate About You. So yeah. I think it's a good baseline indicator of whether you value the same things--even if it's not like a make or break test.
I find that men tend to associate their sense of judgement with their self-esteem to an extent that women simply don't. "I have judged X to be better than Y, therefore I am validated, and must defend this judgement lest I be invalidated." Whereas a woman may hear another's conflicting opinion and not consider it a form of challenge. And on the subject of challenges, the movie I've seen theatrically more than anyone else is probably Alex Winter and Tom Stern's Freaked, which I had the good fortune to see twice on the big screen in '93.
I'm pretty sure the DeNiro/Depardieu movie is 1900.And Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy would be in the discussion for my best of the decade list.
Patrick still makes me tapes, but they're in CD form. ;) The musical love letter never get old!
Who walks out on Raiders?
Several months ago, I started watching through all The Next Generation, and have really been enjoying it. I haven't watched them since the 90's, where I watched reruns every day after school for a while. Unfortunately, it's eating quite a bit into my movie watching, but worth it.My friend keeps telling me that DS9 is the best, but I have never watched that. Or Voyager, or Enterprise which Doug really likes (is that the animated one?). I'm looking forward to getting into DS9 (after a break probably, to catch up on a rapidly expanding movie watchlist), however, I'm a little worried at how the standard definition will look. Btw, I really think TNG looks fantastic. They did a great job updating it, and touching up some of the effects, while not going too far. I haven't once thought anything stood out badly, or looking out of place effects wise (wrt to being updated).
