Edit: Jesus, it was David Ehrenstein who originally went off about it?

Natalie Portman's naked ass is a thing of wonder. In fact it's the most notable naked ass to hit the screen since Peter Beard's in Hallelujah the Hills (1963).
I laughed out loud at this

My favorite part is when Donald Brown gets mad about people liking her ass-- not as a defense of her, but because he didn't like her ass. Imagine getting angry over any ass that isn't your own

Thank goodness this is already one of our dumbest threads so I don't have to expend too much mental energy on ass puns for a threadsplit

Want my kids to see this thread as we live in New Mexico. They wouldn’t understand how a thread about Natalie Portman’s ass could be so long and that could happen. They just keep asking questions about how threads about Natalie Portman’s ass really used to be? This is a great way for my kids to learn what life was like not long ago.

I recognize the brilliance of Rosemanry's Baby but the setting is what has kept me from warming up to it. I don't care for the 60's and 70's New York aesthetic. I'm certain there are quite a few films were that doesn't bother me, but with RB its such a slow burn and its so New York that I just get to the point where I don't want to spend another minute there. I understand that I'm completely alone on this opinion.

I feel the same way about Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the current day NYC aesthetic so I can't roast this person too hard

Yeah, Manhattan somehow got really beautiful in the ’80s or after. :roll:

For anyone interested in seeing what changed and what didn't between the late ’60s and a decade ago, this photo essay is worth checking out. There are some potential spoilers in it. The apartment building that's the film's central setting is from the 1880s.

Unsettling because it revolves around little boys. I can't see how Anyone could watch this and enjoy it...
Perhaps it would have been 5 stars if had revolved around big boys

My kids (b. 2003 and 2005) really do think that the medieval era ended circa 2000.

TV critics strike again. I‘m glad Mike Flanagan‘s Netflix series is earning raves but it’s news to me that Robert Wise‘s The Haunting is considered to be a subpar movie:
Here's another fact: Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House is the first great horror TV show ever. The series, based on Shirley Jackson's novel of the same name (which also spawned some really subpar movies simply titled The Haunting)...

Come on, it's in black and white and by the guy who made The Sound of Music! How scary can it be?

(Which was in fact precisely what I said thirty-odd years ago when a friend insisted that I watch it. But I only said it before seeing it.)

Don't ask why I was reading Amazon Canada reviews of John Irwin's NEXT OF KIN, but I was, and the first three struck a chord in me:
John
4.0 out of 5 starsNext of Kin
May 28, 2016
Format: Blu-rayVerified Purchase
I always like this movie, I did not now that Liam Nelson was in this movie, I realized he is in this movie when I watched the movie. This movie is more less about family getting an eye for an eye more or lass and all hell breaks loose. Patric Swayze is also in this movie and with his acting you can't go wrong, good actor. It is a same cancer got him at a you age.

Christopher McLarty
4.0 out of 5 starsBest transfer for the price!

Better picture quality than I expected. Truly a surprisingly great transfer to blu ray for such an old movie. Definitely worth the price. I wasn't disappointed one bit. Picture quality wasn't perfect but it's the best transfer so far, and no complaints at all. Nice detail, colour, and soundtrack. All decent.

It was for my son. I did not see it.
The extreme, yet oddly wishy-washy nature of Christopher's observations of the blu-ray transfer in number 2 almost gave me whiplash.

This is, in my mind, one of the most humorous programs produced in the last 25 years. I remembered the program as a youngster, watched the first two seasons on Netflix then decided to purchase the complete series. I have not been disappointed. The entire series is family oriented so that each 22 minute program may be watched by young people under 18 years of age. There is what I would classify the level of sexuality displayed as PG-13 with no nudity to speak of. The spoken language, likewise, is not derogatory requiring minimal parental explanation for its content. There is no need for concern for violence as there is next to no harmful violence. However, if you wish to fall out on the floor to experience comic laughter, then sit back and be ready for a delightful experience with the "Wing" actors and actresses!!!

Odd, I don't remember the "Wing" actors and actresses laughing comically. They usually looked kind of stern.

Here's a review of Invasion of the Body Snatchers posted to the BiblioCommons online library catalog. Use of a cell phone means someone is a brain-dead zombie, but using a computer to post an internet movie review apparently allows one to be an individualist freethinker. Also, this was posted this year, but the writer seems to think that Obama is at the apex of the Big Brother pyramid.
This is San Francisco today how appropriate. First movie was in Mill Valley, then in San Francisco, was the second but the message is similar to what has happened to this city, replaced by automatons, Obama voters or brainwashed group think followers. All on cell phones or echo chambers bellowing out the group think, no more emotions no more individual anything this is San Francisco. This is why this movie frightens me it is our reality.
Once, the bastion of free will and individualism this city represents conformity and group think, over 50 year of liberal and democratic/progressive ideals we have created a frightening hell on earth. Do not think different, do not be yourself if it is contrary to the Obama voter pod people. Glued to their cell phones(like the old ankle bracelets) we now pay for them to track us, every cell phone keeps a trace of juice through it for the memory. This allows Big Brother to track you, every Obama voter pod person spews the same messages like they were brainwashed. This movie frightens me because it is real. This is why this movie scares me more than big budget ones, it is like Orwell's 1984, Huxley's Brave New World.

Boy he's going to be pissed when he finds out Orwell was an actual socialist.
