    i've found it's best to wait until after you see it to thank someone for a recommendation.

    In my experience, an expression of appreciation is never premature.

    Invasion Of The Body Snatchers
    (Kaufman, 1978)

    * I very much enjoyed this version of the film. The scenes w/ Kevin McCarthy reprising, albeit briefly, his final scene in the 1956 version of the film, and '56 version's director, Don Siegel, pulling duty as "The Cabbie", were nice touches. As for that Balladeer + Boxer (dog) thing... oh my. D. Sutherland's turn @ the film's final scene was also stirring.

    Thanks in earnest, as ol' member teal'c -- see previous posts ^^^ -- suggested my expression of gratitude before watching the film was, um, premature (?), members @Imprecise & @KeninDC.

    Went and saw the latest Mission Impossible movie. Another good one in the franchise. Caught it at the discount theater after realizing it had already come and gone from the premium theaters. 3 admissions, medium popcorn and 2 medium drinks, $22.50. Much better.

    I bet whoever had the popcorn got pretty thirsty.

    Would there be a connection between the salty popcorn and(insert dramatic music here) the drinks?

    The Naked Kiss (1964) Dir: Samuel Fuller, Criterion Bluray.

    This films opens with a bald woman beating the crap out of a man with a shoe, after that it just gets weird.

    A Prostitute moves to a small town and tries to go straight, but her desire to beat (admittedly bad) men & madames with inanimate objects causes her problems.

    Inept dialog & acting but fascinating nonetheless.

    The First Purge - I enjoyed this one like all the others but the first was the best. This one goes back in time to show how it started as an experiment. The only thing that bugged me like some other movies was the over use of the N word by people of color in the movie and all the crappy gangsta music. There is no need for all that.

    I really didn't count them to compare, but we are also talking about a generation of difference and PC. If they don't want to hear it from others, I really don't care to hear it from them and it's not justified either way. Just my opinion.

    I liked it (again), and this time read up a bit on it: did not know it won Oscars for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actor. Doesn't that qualify as somethig like "the hat trick" @ the Academy Awards thing?
