    I want to take a poll. So early in the rotation we had Easter Parade which had Judy Garland and Fred Astaire and now we have Summer Stock which is Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. Now I don't want to start the Astaire vs Kelly debates again too much, but which pairing do you think or if you recall had more chemistry or was just the general better match up?

    I liked Kelly and Garland far more.

    i also thought the “sometimes a woman needs a man to tell her what to do” shit was datedly funny. Oh, 1950!

    I did too, but then I realized that’s what her *sister* wanted, not her. Garland tells him right off for that shit at the end, which was pretty refreshing. It’s also why the sister and whatshisface ultimately worked for me.

    Gene Kelly definitely explained the plot of the barnsical at one point, right? But the song and dance numbers on the day of the show seemed kind of random, no? 

    Yeah, there was a moment where he explains that sometimes you a boy needs to sing “I love you” to a girl, but then they were only in, like, two skits together...

    So what kind of show exactly was it that Gene Kelly was trying to put on? It just seemed like random song and dance numbers with no unifying theme or anything. Some of them were farm related or themed but not all of them. Was this a kind of common show? I know it's the kind of thing the Ziegfeld Follies did but this seems almost too late for that. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Also, I find it odd they set up that big shot booking guy shows up to show only to never pay it off.

    I was wondering the same thing! I was wondering if had the yokel thing already in mind before the farm or if it was written afterward. I also found it extremely difficult to imagine Harrison playing a hick hobbit.

    I have an important question about the Transformers DVD guessing game. Do the ones given away at the live show count? Because I think at least 200 then. 

    I also have a random question inspired by the "baby chairs" caller. I know Paul is a big fan of rides and Disney so maybe I should call in. But I would welcome forum input as well. How young is too young to bring a kid to Disney? We are having a disagreement in my family. I know some people bring infants and such, but is that a huge pain? My mom is insistent that a child has to be old enough to walk the entire time (no baby chairs) and old enough to remember. 

     

    I’ve had this discussion before because I have two kids that are four years apart so it’s difficult to decide on a “right time.” According to my sister, who, like most of my family, still lives in Florida, there is no “too young” age to go to Disney. However, I disagree because she is speaking from privilege as a Disney Season Pass holder. To wit, she can go whenever she’d like and still be home for dinner. Considering the cost of going to Disney, and the probable infrequency non-Florida residents can go, I would err on the side of a slightly older child - 5 or so.

    So I really wanted to do something Christmas related because I love Christmas music. I spend a good two weeks in November every year just combing throw all my Christmas music to make a new playlist every year. So I thought while I'm picking a movie why not pick some Christmas music for you guys as well. Everyday this week I'll add a new song to this thread to many inspire you or add something new an interesting to your playlist. See my problem is there is tons of Christmas music out there but everybody seems to stick to the same versions of the same songs. There are lots of options. Also, nothing more would delight me than a whole thread of Christmas music.

    For starters, want some Spanish flair to your Holidays but tired of Feliz Navidad? 

     

    Can we all participate?

    I will say I'm surprised that no one seemed to mention The Warriors apossible inspiration for all the crazy costumed gangs.

    I’m super behind on the show, but that blows my mind! As soon as I saw the clown gang, my first thought was, “Oh, this is like The Warriors Jr!”
