Re: “Music Video Monday on Tuesday: Love

All that and some "Little Red Book." I get that stuck in my head for days at at time.

Re: “Music Video Monday on Tuesday: Love

Arthur Lee is the man! Some of my favorites are "Signed DC," "She Comes in Colors," "Always See Your Face," and "Which Witch is Which!"

Re: “Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words

The venue and showtime is at the bottom of the article, directly above your comment.

Re: “Eat That Question: Frank Zappa In His Own Words

Chris - I expected a venue and showtimes, or is this a very cruel tease?

Re: “Politics and the Movies 2: Citizen Kane

I am a Julia Morgan fan and visited the Hearst Castle in the 90s which prompted me to see the movie. Very powerful cinema at the top of my list of favs-quite by accident. It is disconcerting how little the political arena has changed. Very nice comparison.

Re: “The Legend of Tarzan

I really like this movie, moreso than this reviewer. But this review is fair and balanced. Mr. McCoy seems to weigh the film against the source material and not the Tarzan films of past decades. One correction: 1. Edgar Rice Burroughs was not an Englishman. He was an American, born and raised in Chicago. Having read many of the pulp magazines of the early part of the last century, he felt he could write stories as good, or bad, as those he was reading. Thus, John Carter of Mars and Tarzan of the Apes were conceived.
Mr. McCoy is a bit critical of the flashbacks stretching into the 2nd half of the movie, but one of them, the killing of Kala, Tarzan's ape mother, by Chief Mbonga's son and followed by Tarzan killing the young warrior in a vengeful rage, is an important point in this story. It shows us why Chief Mbonga wants to kill Tarzan.

Re: “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie

Joan Collins is looking fabulous at 83!

Jennifer Saunders is the funniest human on the planet, except for Stephen Fry. And maybe Vicki Lawrence.

Re: “Ghostbusters

Great movie! Stay seated until the credits have ended. I was pleased to see Cecily Strong in the movie, also. Chris Hemsworth's best part is contained in the closing credits.

Re: “Ghostbusters

I will see this because Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are the most talented performers on Saturday Night Live since the 70's. I watch SNL mainly to watch them.

I've only seen parts of the original Ghostbusters because I've never liked -- and still can't watch -- Bill Murray.

Re: “Music Video Monday: The Staple Singers

Yes Chris the Police were brave and very patient with a potential violent crowd that did not want to leave after 4 hours of hold traffic up. Chris you ever been stopped in traffic for 4 hours and could not use the restroom.

Re: “The Purge: Election Year

The American fantasy fetish of solving complex social issues by shooting something, isn't confined to the political Right, Chris. If there are enough ticket buyers who reside on the political Left, someone is sure to exploit this by making a film for them.

Re: “The Legend of Tarzan

This is what I thought. But, my wife wants me to look like this Tarzan fellow. So, I am sure we will see it soon enough anyway. Sausage Factory.
