    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 :rolleyes: combined with a groovy bassline.

    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. [face_laugh]

    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

    Wall-E

    uh, I am going to have to see it again,
    and
    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[face_laugh]
    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.

    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.

    but,

    in your case, that would be your place[face_laugh]

    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. ;)

    GET SMART



    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.

    This IS,

    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)

    This IS,

    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 [face_laugh]

    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:)

    [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"

    :eek:

    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[face_laugh]

    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

    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.
