@izzythepush,
That is so true! Even in Alien, he was still Caligula.

I started to watch Coming Through, a 1985 movie based on the love story of D. H. Lawrence and Frieda starring Kenneth Branagh and Helen Mirren. It was so stupid and labored that I only made it through 20 minutes.

I've been watching the long documentary, World War II in Color, which is excellent with its dispassionate narration.

Then I watched a made for television mini-series with Helen Mirren called The Painted Lady which was very interesting until the final five minutes when it became unbelievably corny.

Last night I watched the final episodes of Making a Murderer on Netflix. It was so emotionally draining. I wouldn't even know where to begin. The last two episodes are just brutal. I thought the Italian Justice System was bad because of the Amanda Knox case but now I'm convinced that the American system is worse.

Calculating box office gross is weird. 47% of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' record-breaking open day (Friday, 12/18) came from preview screenings that started at 7pm on Thursday, 12/17. So when it passes Avatar for 1st all-time in North America, will it be 19 or 20 days? Either way it will reach the mark several weeks faster than Avatar. I'll be interested to see if it passes Avatar for #1 worldwide. That won't happen for a few months. Cool

After 1 week of watching it in parts, I finished Mean Girls. The best part of the entire movie is the song Halcyon + On + On by Orbital which was on the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack. This song plays at the very end when Lindsay Lohan is doing her closing monologue. Cool

"Absolutely Fabulous: Film's Cast and Crew Were Told to Stop Drinking on Set Last Year, Report Says"

I've only seen 1 episode many years ago and barely recall it but I believe drinking is the entire premise of the show so this seems more like a press release/publicity stunt for the movie than a "news report."

Last night on Netflix we watch an old classic black and white filmed call “Laura” I actually like watching old movies even though some of the acting back then was atrocious. Cool

@cicerone imposter,
Michael Bay made a Benghazi movie. Wow. It's apparently a terrible action movie and conservatives are orgasming over it. Sigh!

OMG, go back and see all episodes, they're hilarious! I've seen them more than once, they crack me up! In one episode, Patsy (Lumley) was stopped by the police due to her erratic driving and when he opened the car door, she fell out with a bottle of champagne., that's how drunk she was. At the ski lift she took 2 bottles champagne with her and while Eddie (Saunders) hopped off at the top, Patsy rode down again with the ski lift , drinking her champagne. Or when they went wine tasting in France........ go and see the episodes, please!

@CalamityJane,
CJ, or the episode where Patsy sets Eddie's kitchen on fire and is found covered in soot, or the episode at the cemetery where Patsy falls into an open grave. I loved that show, but my husband and son didn't seem to enjoy it like I did. AbFab was certainly not a chick flick, but maybe its the female version of 'the three stooges' only this time it's the girls who get the joke.

I remember the episode on wine tasting in France, Edina and Patsy start off very cool and steadily got so wasted Eddie would laugh and wine would run down her cheek. Whenever AbFab is aired, I make a point of watching it, it's like visiting your favorite drunken pals.

Yeah, even though the movie doesn't substantiate their claim that a stand down order came from the Obama Administration. I guess any movie that shows Americans kicking Ay-rab ass is good enough for a rightwing orgasm.

@snood,
Yesterday I watched most of the movie 'coming to america' with Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall. I had forgotten how funny that movie was. Murphy can become an old Jewish man, a neighborhood barber almost any damn thing and do it without making the characters look like buffoons. The last part of the movie was a little sappy because of the whole 'happily ever after' love stuff. But it's definitely worth watching, well, it made me laugh.

@glitterbag,
I think that I've seen it a few times and agree.

I hope sincerely that Eddy shows up a in a few high quality movies in the future.

Yeah, Murphy definitely has talent. I was a huge fan of his early stuff, but the majority of his humor sort of misses me. I hear he's thinking of returning to stand-up.

@snood,
I totally forgot to mention we saw "The Martian" Fri. night on demand. I liked Matt Damon's performance, but can't honestly say I enjoyed the movie. Did I mention it ran 2 hours and 24 minutes??? Far too long for me, I read the newspaper during the slow periods and I think there were too many slow periods. It did venture out on some novel ideas on what humans would need to live on another planet, and that seemed more real to me than establishing an outpost to mine precious metals.

Did anybody else see 'the martian' and if you did, what do you think?
