Re: “The Interview, The Majestic, St. Vincent among new home entertainment titles

I was the exact same age as the teens in "Breaking Away" so it hit (too) close to home. It also got me into cycling. I am no Lemond, but hey, I still ride well into my 50's. The simple scene where Dave Stoller is cruising along under a canopy of big trees sticks with me the most.

Re: “Fences, Kiss of Death, Red Dawn among new home entertainment titles

Thanks for writing, Denny. Haha; if you took from my blurb that I ever suggested the U.S. shouldn't defend against foreign invaders ... well, reading comprehension has never been the strong suit of many on the right. Now back to your p*ssy-grabbing, weapon-fondling, and whatever else you pseudo-patriotic Trump groupies like to do in your spare time. Cheers!

Re: “Fences, Kiss of Death, Red Dawn among new home entertainment titles

I love how someone with a page by the name of 'Creative Loafing' would denigrate the concept that citizens would actually defend the United States against invaders. Oh, the horror. Left to the tender mercies of Matty, we might as well just fold up and surrender to..... anyone.... such is the mindset of the All Powerful Anti-American Liberal circa 2017.

BTW, I love the term Conservative Chickenhawks.... since there is no need for an equivalent Liberal Chickenhawks.... simply because Liberal directly translates to Chickenhawk.

Re: “Fences, Kiss of Death, Red Dawn among new home entertainment titles

"The notion that any enemy would concern itself with Red State real estate is only slightly less believable than......."

I know right. What strategic value can possibly be gained from taking over a region that supplies 90% of the nation's food products. (beef, poultry, pork, wheat, corn, potatoes, and on and on)? But hey maybe everyone can live on wine and oranges.

Re: “Peyton Place, Rogue One, MST3K set among new home entertainment titles

The controversy going on in Lana Turner's personal life helped make Peyton Place I believe the second highest grossing film of 1957 behind The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Re: “Cat People, Free State of Jones, Twin Peaks among new home entertainment titles

RIO BRAVO, with Dino and The Duke. EL DORADO and RIO LOBO are both fun, but RIO BRAVO is a masterpiece -- my favorite Western along with ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and (if one considers it a Western) THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.

Re: “Cat People, Free State of Jones, Twin Peaks among new home entertainment titles

Haha. Amusingly, Wayne and Hawks made RIO BRAVO as a direct response to HIGH NOON. And I hate to say it, but I think RIO BRAVO blows HIGH NOON out of the water.

Re: “Cat People, Free State of Jones, Twin Peaks among new home entertainment titles

It funny you mentioned John Wayne hated High Noon. At the 1952 Academy Awards it was Wayne who accepted Gary Cooper's Oscar for that film. He also accepted statue for John Ford winning Best Director for his film The Quiet Man... I guess Wayne does live up to his reputation of being a moral hypocrite.

Re: “The Revenant, Suspicion, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot among new home entertainment titles

Thanks for writing, Lance. Nothing wrong with "manly and macho" movies; check out CHATO'S LAND and THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT, both positively reviewed in this same column.

Re: “The Revenant, Suspicion, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot among new home entertainment titles

I guess if the revenant were a musical it would get a better review.

Re: “The Revenant, Suspicion, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot among new home entertainment titles

So you don't like The Revenant because it's too manly and macho? What do you expect in this time period? It was a brutal time and brutal setting. I don't understand why you think it has to make some sort of statement to be this way. It's just the way it was back then. Very realistic in my opinion. And probably the best performance by Dicaprio. I'm not saying it was the best picture of the year. But certainly better than 2 1/2 stars.
