    Pulp Fiction

    I'm gonna go out and a limb and say Once Upon a Time.. is also probably my favorite (though I haven't seen all). I've seen it twice, and will probably go this weekend to a screening in 35mm. For me, it's up there with Jackie Brown.

    I agree that the national anthem might have been a lot more on people's minds at this time given the bicentennial and cultural changes the country was going through with civil rights, women's right's and Watergate. I ended up just buying this movie and watched it start to finish for the first time yesterdsay. I decided to watch it before listening to the Ep all the way because Paul had mentioned going in without any idea what was going to go on, and I wanted that same experience. I found some of it kind of hard to follow, but I think this is definitely one of those movies that will be more rewarding on re-watches. There's so much going on that I'm sure I'll find all kinds of new threads and details I didn't catch the first time around. Most of the music I really could have done without (but I'm not really a country fan), but I'll say I loved that last song Barbara Jean did going on about the road trip with her parents. There was something that felt like it was poking fun at the genre and I can only imagine some of that had to be improvised, but it was genius. It fit the character and the placement in the film perfectly. I also really loved the set the trio did followed by Tom's song staring at Lily Tomlin. That whole storyline was great too. But, ugh, political assassinations. The shooting (and all dramatized shootings) really caused me anxiety. That was hard to watch. Do I think it deserves to be on the list? Eh... I think I'd say so. This is really a break in form, and while it didn't hold my attention 100% for its very long run time, Paul and Amy kind of sold me on it. One bee in my bonnet: I take umbrage at the "get lawyers out of Congress" line I'd prefer the people writing the laws to understand the law. But I'm biased. ETA: I think a great companion film to this is Coal Miner's Daughter, which i only just realized came out 5 years later. It is excellent.

    Episode 219 - Drop Dead Fred: LIVE! (w/ Casey Wilson)

    I'm way late to the game on this one, but ... exactly! Without having read through the whole thread, here's my take: Lizzie is clearly having psychotic breaks. Fred (as Imaginary in "imaginary friend" suggests), is a figure of her mind. She hallucinates him there as an entity separate from herself, and he encourages her to cause mayhem to gain attention and/or hurt her mom. We, as viewers, see Fred as Lizzie sees him, but we can't impose her onto his physical nature - as in, when he does an up-the-skirt look at her mom, it's not Lizzie actually looking up her mom's skirt, or even imagining herself looking up the skirt, she was imagining Fred as the type of guy who would do that. Whether that means she's also curious about looking up other girls shirts - who's to say. But fuck this movie. Carrie Fisher was the only good thing about it!

    Pulp Fiction

    To add to this, I actually thought these two were at best acquaintances who were spending the day getting to know each other. When they have that whole conversation about whether a miracle occurred, Vincent seemed completely taken aback by Jules's sincerity. I thought they became close over the course of the movie, but not that they started that way.

    Episode 218.5 - Minisode 218.5

    I mean, what if it IS Michael Bay sending the stuff? Just sayin'
  6. Based on this recommendation, I watched A Scanner Darkly this morning. Mind blown!
  7. Wait, how did I not know there was a Total Recall remake?! It's so perfect, why would they remake it? I suggest both are perfect for HDTGM.

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    My local Landmark theater shows it every month without fail. I finally got to see a screening of it and it was everything I'd hoped for!

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    I, unfortunately (?), own this movie now, since renting it was the same price on Amazon Prime.
  10. I'm of the opinion the trailer looks super creepy. There's a cut floating around with the "Us" "I've got Five On It" mix and it seems way more fitting.
  11. After reading the IMDb synopsis, I'll have to see if this is similar to Juliet, Naked, which I liked much more than I expected to.

    Episode 218 - Deadfall (w/ Chelsea Peretti)

    Yes! I kept seeing her as her character from PCU. I'm glad someone else mentioned it. I really liked her character in that. Here... not so much.

    Gone with the Wind

    I am beginning to see why people get banned. I appreciate moderators.

    Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

    To chime in - as a single, child-free woman of a certain age, I can tell you the pressure to get married, to have kids, and to refrain from having kids outside of marriage, is alive and well. And infertility (while not necessarily reflecting poorly on the woman) still comes with the feeling that to be a woman is to be a mother, and by not being a mother, you are not a fully realized woman.

    Shameless Self-Promotion

    This is a really delightful show! And now of course I'm starting through Magnum, PI because I've never actually seen any full episodes before.
