3 out of 4 stars? Really? 3 out of 4 clues this is a total piece of crap - 1) the commercials. 2)Read More the trailer. 3) Liam Neeson in the starring role.

Colby, This is one of my favorite movies, ever: The mom routinely swimming past Harold's floatingRead More body. Harold excusing himself from the blind date his mom set up for him, to ceremonially pour gas on himself and light-up in front of her, to "discretely" drive her away. The preacher's repulsion at the thought of Harold's "young, firm" body in bed with Maude. Priceless... I love Ruth Gordon. She's fearless. And, the views of rolling hills and oaks lets you know it was filmed here. About 35 years ago, Harold and Maude was a recurring feature -- along with Rocky Horror -- at the El Rey on Main St. That's where I first saw it. Thanks for sharing. You're right, it's timeless.

Although I have not watched this movie in over 30 years, I remember it as being a real force ofRead More energy in my life and I saw it then four times. I was younger and related to it very well. I wonder if there are other movies which are similar or which it reminds you of....can anyone think of any? But, Harold and Maude really spoke to the energy and positivity in a person regardless of age, race, class,orientation or profession......atitude with a capital A.

In tribute to "Harold and Maude" I always cue up Cat Stevens when I get to drive over theRead More San Mateo Bridge. For a completely different Ruth Gordon role, check her out in "Rosemary's Baby". She was a terrific actress.
Colby Wayne Heyer January 14, 2013 at 01:18 pm
Exactly, and this is why Avatar didn't blow my mind. Yes, the 3D technology used in filming wasRead More pretty awesome, but the story-line wasn't anything special. Especially because I think Dances with Wolves was way better. The political aspect of awards shows like the Golden Globes, and the Oscars is usually what drives me to avoid them. I don't care what an actor or actress has to say about politics, and I hate when they use their acceptance speech as a soap box. Last night's Golden Globes didn't bother me as much as I thought (Probably because I had it on my DVR so I could fast forward through whatever I wanted) but I do understand what you are talking about when it comes to political influence within Hollywood.

Hello Colby, The industry loves to copy and paste sometimes clearly showing its hand and sometimesRead More trying to hide it. The last original movie I watched was Inception. What was the last good movie you watched?

Ishtar and Heaven's Gate. Definitely.
Janice P Ellis December 27, 2012 at 01:42 pm
You see, Darwinian Justice, that's what is so warped and twisted about thinking you know someoneRead More inside and out based on posts in this forum. I grew up in Berkeley in the '60's, where it really was the ultimate melting pot. I was taught that we're all the same - and I believe that to this day. We all have hopes and dreams and fears. We all have our crosses to bear, Darwinian Justice, but, you're totally off-base as to what you think mine are. Thankfully, racism isn't one of them, nor is my feeling like a victim as a result of what the black race has gone through. So, you can save your zingers for someone else. And, no, obviously I DIDN'T live through 400 years of slavery, but, as a black person, I live with the after effects of it. Getting back to Kwanzaa, my family doesn't celebrate it, but, I can understand why something like Kwanzaa exists. I absolutely don't believe Kwanzaa WOULD exist if the black race hadn't been oppressed and enslaved, nor would America have seen the likes of the Civic Rights movement of the '60's. There would have been no NEED for them. One has no need to show strength unless another has tried to show one as weak. As so often happens on these forums, some have no desire to seek to understand, but, only seek to insult and put others down. I find it very interesting that those people rarely use their real names. As usual, everyone is talking, but, no one is listening. All some of you seem to care about are insults.
Janice P Ellis December 27, 2012 at 02:02 pm
You're correct, Voter with an ID - Africans did sell their own people into slavery. But, who didRead More they sell them TO? To be fair, we need to include the ENTIRE ugly picture, not just one part of it. And, if you really think this is about reparations, you really ARE clueless. No amount of money could undo what has been done, nor make what happened ok. I've read your posts on this forum for awhile now, and you're always ready and willing to hurl insults. You never seem to have anything positive to say, which says a lot about who you are. Then, you label people such as myself as "bleeding hearts". Believe me, if it separates me from you and people like Darwinian Justice, who always have something negativeand insulting to say, I'll wear the "bleeding heart" badge with honor.
Darwinian Justice December 27, 2012 at 08:40 pm
No need for a bleeding heart badge. The victim mentality acts perfectly well as a replacement.

I don't have a recipe, but I did buy some bacon-maple cupcakes (they were more like muffins) at theRead More school holiday gift sale, and I have to say they were pretty tasty. (I think that recipe came f/ Bon Appetite) Now the jam ON the cupcakes would be overload....hmmm..or would it?

Perhaps you should do the same, Sandra. Your comments are mean-spirited at someone who simplyRead More voiced an opinion. The keep your snide comments street runs both ways. I could care less about having the last OR the first word, but, NO ONE likes being attacked for simply voicing an opinion. Your attack here was completely unnecessary. I agree, it WAS a lovely story about Lacy attending a concert, and I did address that, as well as wished her a happy birthday AND commented about how cute her cake was. Please stop trying to be the comment police and learn to just respect the opinions of others, even if you don't agree with them.
Hannah October 10, 2012 at 12:28 am
It may come as a surprise to you, Janice, but, I'm not arguing about your opinions, I'm arguingRead More about the fact that your opinions aren't supported at all. I suggest rereading my reply to your comment again, so you can really feel how completely wrong you are. Try not to be so embarrassed next time you're this wrong... 'cause, as you've done here, you've just proven yourself to be more wrong. I didn't tell you to love Justin Bieber, but simply to not be unnecessarily mean, and to stop insulting things you aren't educated about. If you'd just said something like "I don't like Justin Bieber's music because it's not my style and his voice doesn't appeal to me." I would be more understanding. I'd still be annoyed that you decided to express your opinion here... but it's your life, and if you decide to be unnecessarily mean... well, you're entitled to that, however much I personally disapprove. But, instead of saying something like my example comment, you just spouted some random dumb opinion, and, here's my issue with you, attempted to back it up with a ridiculous completely unsupported prediction about his future (because you clearly realized how random and inappropriate expressing your opinion would be in this setting). Aside from all this, you don't need to love him, but I think it would definitely be fair for you appreciate the fact that he is a good natured person who has given A LOT of money to charity, and has made millions of people happy.
