From time to time the Duck and I talk of film and art. These are some of the more interesting posts
as most of the political stuff gets boring.
1) Lets talk of the popular super hero movies. Is the reason Spiderman is so popular is because of his human traits. He often struggles with bills, has a crazy boss and women trouble like the rest of us.
2) Does Hollywood forget about writing when it is preaching? Will and Grace was hysterical with well written characters who do not take being gay too seriously. The Ellen show was preachy and stunk.
Lets talk of classic TV
3) I enjoy a good cop show. Ones that stand out are Kojak, Quincy, Monk, Hawaii 5-0, Jake and the Fat Man. Do you like this genre.
4) I hate attorney shows like LA Law, Ally McBeal and can't think of one I like.
5) Sci Fi I enjoy the Original and Second Star Trek series. I liked Buck Rodgers in the 25 th century and the original Battlestar Galactica but not much else
6) Comedies The Odd Couple, All and the Family, Married with Children, Family Ties, Mash and
King of the Hill stand out.
I hate Roseann and do not get Tim Allen.
Actors and Actresses
7) I do not get Sarah Jessica Parker and find her annoying and just not interesting. Kirsten Davis is much more beautiful and interesting. Sex and the City is a bore I endured with a girlfriend. Unfortunately the characters are very real if you lived in NYC. Did you get stuck watching the show.
8) I do not get the appeal of Cher. She was good in Mask and Moonstruck but is dreadful in everything else.
9) Nicole Kidman is a bore. How does she get parts seriously?
10) Jim Brown vs OJ. I have to give the nod to Jim Brown on the basis of the Dirty Dozen. Goldie
and the Boxer may be the worst film of all time.
Santa Claus vs the Martians
11) I liked the Lord of the Rings , but hated the King Kong Remakes.
12) I like all the Indiana Jones Films
13) I can like without Batman, but Spiderman and the X men are OK. Conan Stunk
14) All of us have books we loved and loathed
Lord Of the Flies, Of Mice and Men, Animal Farm, Any Mitchner Book, Drums along the Mohawk Stand out.
Ethan Frome, Song of Solomon, Silas Marner drove me up a wall.
15) I do like Eugene ONeil. However, I am positive the Emperor Jones would be trashed today
if it were written by a contemporary author. What are your thoughts on that?
16) I do like Shakespeare but find people who quote him to be obnoxious. I just see it as hstorical entertainment and the Teempest is my favorite.
17) I like all types of Rock from AC DC, Del Shannon, Peter & Gordon.
18) I hate disco and regae
19) Classical music puts me to sleep
20) I prefer Dean martin to Sinatra but like both
21) I like football better than baseball
22) I can't watch the NBA. The Knicks are the worst sports franchise with the worst owner
23) I would never watch golf on TV
24) Tennis is a bore
25) The most annoying athlettes
1) Terell Ownes
2) Ocho Cinco
3) Manny Ramirez
4) Gary Shefield Does this guy get along with anyone
5) Kobe Bryant
