that was to awesome..
Select [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyH9XfjX6cU]"highlights"[/link] from The Amazing Spider-Man (on CBS from 1977-1979). Should only be watched by those who love top-notch special effects combined with a groovy bassline.
i used to love that show, but now its painful to watch..
Chip Fields is the mother of Kim Fields. Did you know?
ToneLoc - I did not know that about Chip Fields...cool bit of trivia
Ahh...Saturday mornings in the 80s. You guys remember this?
[link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBQS1cgsEdU]...from my video, to my radio[/link]
unfortunately, I do...what happen to those actors?
I wondered the same thing. Further supporting the idea that there is nothing that can't be found on the internet, I found this site: [link=http://www.kvflipside.org/]www.kvflipside.org[/link]
They have links to what the actors are doing now. The info looks like it might be a couple years old, but it provides some info to freaks like us who actually wonder about such things.
Also, I forgot to mention this after posting the scenes from the old Spider-Man series. Apparently the guy who played Spidey (or Peter Parker, at least) also played Friedrich von Trapp in The Sound of Music!
Moving on to something new...I heard [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ha-thfEx8]this[/link] while driving around today.
Hip Hop Hooray...ho...hey...ho
uh, I am going to have to see it again,
then buy the DVD for the extras,
just way too much fun, and way to much stuff going on,
and lots of tributes (some blantant) to previous films.
A little weak in the middle, but ya can take the kids,
and it's FUN, ok I said that before.
Note, yes, there is one very tiny joke at the,
absolute end, after all credits and logos,
and, well, it's ok but not worth bursting your kydney for
good for those with nothing better to do.
also, the animation continues throughout the end credits,
I mean, it is a Pixar film after all.
Sound by Star Wars, Ben Burtt (sound designer)
and Skywalker Sound....pretty gosh darn good!
Also with this, is an aboslutely perfect Pixar short,
that had me and the entire audience laughing out loud,
it seemed more adult to me, but some of the kids got it.
ok, now go see this film, at the movies!
sure, it'll be ok on home video later,
but this is one try to see and hear as intended.
oh, did I say I liked this,
well I did, it was nice and kid friendly,
That's all Folks,
que the music.
Just saw WALL-E today - I really liked it and strongly recommend it. Funny, with very cute characters and a good story. As MT said, the short at the beginning was pretty good, too.
That's two votes for,
I will wait until DVD..or BlueRay..
Normally, I would suggest at this point at least trying to see it
at the second-run or half/price movie theatre for the full effect.
in your case, that would be your place
Saw Hancock today. First half was really good, second half (after the plot twist) was ok, and I thought the ending was a little weak. But it was an interesting concept and sets itself up well for a sequel. I like Will Smith, but I'm a huge fan of Jason Bateman. He brought his usual dry wit to this one in a supporting role that (unfortunately) got smaller and smaller as the film progressed.
Overall, not WALL-E quality, but probably worth a matinee ticket - or even better, a trip to ToneLoc's when the DVD comes out.
Finally, a super secrect spy organization with a Smart Agent!
Boy, could they have messed this up for me, I am totally a
Get Smart fan.
It was one of the very first theme songs that I taught myself to play
on the piano.
This is NOT a super funny film,
but instead is a quality film, that seen with in the first week of
release with other fans of the film, makes going to the show fun.
a smart (sorry for the pun) film,
using consultants like Buck Henry and Mel Brooks,
but it is not their film
(I......forget/do not know.......the producer / director)
a well made film with fun nostalgic moments and humor,
GREAT cameos (remember original cast?)
beloved classic humor (remember all the classic Get Smart lines)
and sophisticated nods (not overt, you have to look for them)
to other great secret agents like
James Bond and Mission Impossible. (visual and audio and musical)
ok, this was obviously a film I liked!
and if you know any Smart Fans
tell them it will be ok, and not a bad re-make
like so many other re-makes and sequels
more from me in SW BLOG today
I watched all of the Smart episodes as well, and I loved the movie!
Has anybody seen Jumper?
Yes, it was swell.
So was it a good movie?
I heard it is not on the same level as Mission Impossible: 2
[link=http://www.keloland.com/videoarchive/index.cfm?VideoFile=070808text&Id=71600]This[/link] video was on the local news tonight. Note the first girl interviewed: "I go through 10,000 text messages a month"
So I don't want to go all "grumpy old man" here, but I really don't get this texting thing. I have no fear of technology; I'm pretty proficient with the internets and all, and I pretty much live on email (especially at work), but...why not just call? Of course, I don't get MySpace or Facebook, either.
That sound you hear is me turning into my father, apparently. Anybody have a rotary phone I can use?
ref "grumpy old man"......too late, I am already there
I do not get Cell-Phones (have never owned one & am not planning on it for now)
ref, rotoary phone, Yes, I have one! It's from 1922 and still works,
includes ringer-box attached to wall. Phone weighs about 10 pounds,
not including ringer box......had to have it......Adams Family connetions
Lastly, thought that this would be fun for my Wall-E report
[link=http://www.billyvssteve.com]The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters[/link] was on G4 the other night...not bad, anybody seen it?
[link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_of_Kong:_A_Fistful_of_Quarters]Here's[/link] the Wikipedia page.
i saw it. i liked it. i think they "villianized" the one guy really well, while also victimizing the challenger.
The Dark Knight was pretty cool. I'm just saying.
I admit, I liked Iron Man better, though.
so, you came home right from the movie to post that it was "pretty good"
i'd have gone to bed and posted in the morning.
Ah that crazy mercsailer, such a renegade
This post comming to you at around 1-pm Saturday,
which for some reason, since I slept very late,
is now first thing in the morning for me.
I blame X, he has hypnotized us into posting aournd the clock.
