A fun thing to do is try and figure out which version of "Grease" you're watching.

some of the best things about “The Incredibles” (2004) are the little details and moments that go unexplained

you can learn a lot about shot and sequence design by watching “The Incredibles” with the sound off

Amazing work that no one is thinking about when they watch the show.

This has been said 1,000,000 times by everyone but I'll say it again.

If episodes of "Ripley" (Netflix) had been released on a weekly schedule rather than all episodes dumped at once, I think it would have made much more of a cultural impact on the landscape.

(It's so good.)

What's a movie you've seen recently at home that you WISHED you could have seen in theaters as a first-timer?

This is a new one. “Atlas" (2024) promotional material.

This is a new one. The same greenscreen-draped set, thirteen seconds later becomes a grayscreen-draped set.

The “Wolfs" (2024) trailer is a classic ‘show us the whole plot' trailer.

I’d like to see this iPhone in the lineup:

iPhone G-Shock*

  • iPhone mini screen (5.4” screen)
  • iPhone mini height/width (5.18” x 2.53”)
  • fucking thick as hell, maybe 1/2” thick

key features:

  • reinforced edges for ruggedness
  • gigantic battery
  • for people who use their phones for work but need it to be rugged as hell and last all day no matter what
  • no need for fancy features like periscope camera

*who cares what they call it (but you knew exactly what I meant when I said G-Shock)

I watched Jenny Nicholson's video.

Every point she makes about the hotel, I would say the same about visiting the parks.

I heard this from @glennf and just tested on an Apple TV with tvOS 17.4 and a 10 minute screensaver interval and no YouTube screensaver kicked in before Aerial at the 10 min mark. The YouTube app version is 4.22.01 so it doesn’t appear to have recently updated. Something server side, maybe? Can anyone else report back if they’re still seeing the YouTube screeensaver (reference: https://joe-steel.com/2024-04-12-YouTubes-Screen-Stealer.html)

"No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough.” -Roger Ebert

(yeah they’re too long)

Huge discussion topic. For me, the short version is every kid is different.

For our family, we look at the amount of cruelty in the movie as our most important criteria. We also wouldn’t watch one with the kid without the adults watching the movie first.

Funny— I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, since we are doing a full watch-through of “Seinfeld”.

Although Jerry and Larry David have a lot in common and are terrific collaborators, when you look at Jerry’s standup and all his interviews vs Larry’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and all his interviews, you see they have very different feeling about and humanity.
