Commenting on Bradley Cooper as Indiana Jones?

tcr! tcr! · Mar 27, 2014 at 3:47 pm

YES. The Lone Ranger fiasco.

I can't comment on the recent Bond films though since I haven't seen any since Roger Moore left the service. That wasn't anything to do with the actors to come, just never got around to seeing them. The Bourne movies were decent, watch-in-bed as well.

However.. There are a handful of movies that I saw as a kid in the theaters on opening night and I 'spect that no matter how good the remakes would be, I couldn't/wouldn't get past my personal attachment to the originals. I'd protest any Ghostbusters remake even if Murray was headlining. :-)

There are a couple re-vamps that stand out as well done: The Star Treks and Burton's Planet of the Apes. Both exceptional.

I might train myself to start using those words around the house. ;-)

there've been some movies in recent memory that should go on an "Apology Tour". the most recent "Indy" offering is in the top five.

the fiasco that was "Lone Ranger" was at the top of the pile.
the "Lone Ranger" didn't act alone though. i had Great Expectorants.

tom cruise's "Oblivion" was a waste land of plot.

but, i must be the only one who thinks james bond aged well. i thought roger moore was the low point, and i only tolerated pierce brosnan (i can't talk about why) but Daniel Craig had some of the best 007 scenes ever.

i'm looking forward to enjoying the Indy franchise wherever it takes me.

i'm also a big fan of jason bourne.

in health care we are trained to use "appear" and "seems". i'm sure it must be the same in legalese as well.
for example, "it seems O.J. tried to cut off her head and was caught fleeing the scene of the crime." since 12 reasonable people couldn't come to the same conclusion it only "seems" he got away with murder.

I agree. Besides, isn't the "born again, reborn" Bourne movie franchise these kids Bond.

Let Indy lay down.

'This article contains words about a topic. 75% of the article contains over half of the total words. Some of the words may contain letters. Experts suggest that the alphabet used in forming words in the English language may include as many as 26 letters. Use of words, which can contain letters, in a professional setting, often leads to words being used in a professional or "un-professional" manner.'

There. Just need to quote a few tweets, add a little "such-and-such newspaper reported that…" to cover the lack of fact-checking, and I've got my own article.

oh praise sbj!

i never had a problem with my wipers. took the car to the same place every time for the oil change, etc.
to be serviced.
the guy suggested windshield wipers to me. i thought, what the hell, he's being nice and it wasn't' that much, i was in the mood and had the money.

my wipers never worked well after that.
i talked to a mechanic, gary w., and he agreed: "they're a bitch!" mechanics, detailers, etc, hate doing 'em 'cuz they're such a hassle. some will say there's a trick to it, but everyone knows this translates into: sometimes it works, sometimes not so much.

not at all what i expected. i gave the lyrics a once-through, as i am apt to do if i see 'em. didn't expect that bloozy rock-n-roll.

My drawing was inspired by that infamous Bigfoot photo and sgc did have a love affair with said elusive creature… I leave the rest to your imagination.
