    Double Indemnity

    What was everyone’s favorite Noir line? Mine was: “They’ll hang you just as sure as ten dimes will buy you a dollar, and I don’t want you to hang, baby.”

    Double Indemnity

    Personally, I loved all the "babys." As I said on my initial Letterboxd review, I liked the movie for all the right reasons, but I think I loved it for all the wrong ones. I got so much joy out of how hard-boiled everything was. Everything Neff utters is pure brilliance. I also agree with you. As they said in the show, I feel like Neff (much like Eve) is playing a role. His life is kind of whatever, and when he this woman seems a little interested in him, he really pours it on. In my mind, all the "babys" and everything are complete artifice. He's pretending to be something he's not - or something he wishes he could be. (You've got to stop slumming over there on Facebook )

    Double Indemnity

    I think my favorite part was when Neff needed to cool off so he bowled a couple frames...and grabbed a beer a Drive-In restaurant. Oh, 1944, you so crazy.

    Double Indemnity

    Amy and Paul wondered why the movie was set in 1938 instead of 1944, and I wonder if maybe the studio was afraid audiences might not accept Neff - a healthy, thirty-five year old man - wasn't enlisted in the military. While still a few years from America actually entering the war, 1938 is conspicuous in being the year before WW II began. While Neff is never portrayed as a "good guy," he still needed to be someone that the audience could root for. If there was a hint that he might be a draft dodger or something, they might have been afraid that people would turn on him off him right off the bat..

    All About Eve

    I did! It was fantastic!

    All About Eve

    I don’t know. I feel like - especially back then - her being a lesbian would have only been seen as a part of her overall psychosis. Back in those days, in many places, it was still illegal to be gay and people were institutionalized for being homosexual.

    Musical Mondays Week 45 Oliver & Company

    And because Jammer hasn't gotten Ram yet... (Goddamn it, guys! I'm trying to finish Double Indemnity! Don't make me choose!)

    Musical Mondays Week 45 Oliver & Company

    Tough question. At times I think it would have been amazing had the Beatles stayed together because you'd only keep the solid solo stuff and get rid of all the filler. McCartney, Tug of War, Flaming Pie, Band on the Run, and Ram are all solid. Ram has some of my absolute favorite solo Paul songs with "Dear Boy" and "Back Seat of my Car." Flowers in the Dirt has some fantastic songs, but a lot of meh. I love "Put it There," "This One," and "We Got Married." I also think New is a solid (full) album - which is why I'm probably a little more disappointed in Egypt Station than I would be otherwise. Honestly, though, I can probably find something I love on every album - even Press to Play

    Totally. I’ll take what I can get, but this really isn’t his best work (I do like them more than Driving Rain, though) ETA: Okay...”Fuh You” is starting to grow on me. It’s kind of a fun (if stupid) singalong

    So weird. And because I’m a big ole fuddy-duddy, I looked up “fuh” in Urban Dictionary (SPOILER ALERT: it means “fuck”) Now I’m thinking Paul’s just trying to be cool. Next thing you know he’s going to write a song about being “on fleek.” Also, it calls into question his other song on the album “Come On to Me.” It feels like Paul got old - and incredibly horny.

    Musical Mondays Week 45 Oliver & Company

    LOL - Nope, I pre-ordered it and that's the title and those are the lyrics. I agree, the music is fine, but you're right, the lyrics are something else. I guess (maybe) the way he sings "I wanna Fuh You" kinda sounds like "I want to love you" so it can be taken both ways. I don't know. I just find this whole thing so shocking!

    SIDEBAR: Grudlian, what is happening? Is Paul singing about fuckin’? At least give a metaphor, bro!

    All About Eve

    Re: the rear projection I noticed it too, but I figured it was so they could pass beneath the marquee with her name on it. I’m not sure why they couldn’t just do it without the rear projection, though. Was it still difficult to mic people outdoors in those days?
