    Best Movie Openings

    You realize that most of these are not the openings of those movies, right?
  2. I always find myself putting on one or two panels on backwards, which requires me to disassemble the whole thing and put it back together again. But, I also put my son's pants on backwards yesterday, and did not know until my wife came home and mocked me several hours later. So, I may just be incompetent.

    Kubrick had some good ones: Paths of Glory 2001 A Clockwork Orange

    Best Movie Openings

    I know you said that no one wrote a last line like Billy Wilder in the other thread. We can probably just strike the word "last line" and say that no wrote like Billy Wilder (granted Double Indemnity was with Chandler, but Some Like It Hot and Sunset Blvd both in the opening scene mix too).

    What is Bill Murray's signature role?

    It feels like Groundhog Day.

    Best Movie Openings

    The best movie endings thread got me thinking about movie openings, as some movies named for best ending (like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Citizen Kane) could probably get mentioned for best opening too. But for best opening, I'd go with another one of Orson Welles' films: Touch of Evil.

    My Mom Died Wednesday

    Sorry for your loss, and condolences to your family. I'm glad you got to have that last time with her. My dad passed away with a sudden heart attack when he was 49. Did not get the chance for those last goodbye's.
  8. I don't think it is in their best interests (which is why they haven't pushed it too strongly), but, particularly if Mueller's report is pretty damning, this is not a question about the politics and strategy. It's about the rule of law and the Constitution. If any Democrat puts 2020 electoral chances above that, they should be thrown to the curb with the lot of them.

    Best Movie Endings

    Westerns have some good endings with the heroes riding off into the sunset. "Shane, come back!" and Gary Cooper throwing his star into the dirt in High Noon are a couple that stick out for me.

    Seeing the Raiders of the Lost Ark mentions... it is probably in the conversation for best movie opening too. I think it would be rare to be in the mix for both (Citizen Kane another one like that). That may have to be the next thread.

    Anniversary Trip Ideas

    I've done SF-Medocino-Napa, but I haven't been south or to Big Sur. So, I'll let someone else weigh on what is the better option. I was just thinking that with a week with no kids in the SF area, Napa might be worth thinking about including in the mix as an idea and can give you a bit of a loop.

    Anniversary Trip Ideas

    I found San Fran good for a couple of days, but I don't think it's different enough from other cities to sustain a long trip by itself. If you are thinking a week, I'd probably split it up with half of the week hitting the main SF tourist spots (Alcatraz, Wharf, Golden Gate, Muir Woods), and then heading up to Napa for the other half. If you want the PCH experience, you could drive up to Mendocino (assuming that portion of PCH is open, I don't know), and then head back through Napa.

    Some of mine: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari Casablanca The Third Man Miller’s Crossing (a bit of a The Third Man homage ending)
  14. It is hard to keep up this thread. Has the WSJ story about Cohen hiring a firm to help boost Trump’s support in online polls sufficiently been made fun of yet? Cohen really should have just posted the link in the FFA. ETA: Another part of the article worth making fun of: "Mr. Cohen asked Mr. Gauger to create the @WomenForCohen account, still active in 2019, to elevate his profile. The account’s profile says it is run by “Women who love and support Michael Cohen. Strong, pit bull, sex symbol, no nonsense, business oriented and ready to make a difference!”

    Tell how the shutdown is affecting you.

    I’m feeling the same. My wife is doing her best to keep the economy humming on her furlough through online shopping. She bought about $1,000 worth of rugs the other day. She was also talking about buying new furniture for the living room. God help me.
