IN MEMORIAM 2017

Recommended Posts

The fact that John Hurt narrates DOGVILLE is probably the sole reason I'll end up watching it.

Don't forget that wonderfully cute animated movie for the whole family, Watership Down, which my father rented from the library for five-year-old me because he thought it was a Disney movie about cute, fluffy bunnies. THANKS, DAD!

It wasn't the English version, so I was deprived of John Hurt's voice, but I'll be fucked if I'll see that movie again.

I loved that film when I was six. Better than any of that Disney bollocks.

I've never watched The Elephant Man, and after seeing the clip that J.T. posted I won't be able to. I'm comfortable with a level of deep, deep depression and sadness in films but that takes the cake. 

That should be an Empathy Litmus Test. If you watch it and don't cry, you should be shot in the head.

If you're not empathetic, empathetic people should shoot you? Empathetic people need to be more empathetic.

Oh, but that movie is so good though.  Just man up and watch it and accept the fact that you will be a blubbering mess when the end credits roll.

I went to see it with my mom when I was a kid and we had to go out for ice cream to cheer ourselves up.   It is THAT moving.

Apollo is dead?  Fuck.  I need ice cream or whiskey now.  Maybe both.

RIP Judge Wapner at the age of 97.

 

An entire new generation is waking up today to finally learn who a bunch of oldies hip hop references were about.

At the height of People's Court mania, only 9% of Americans could name the CJSCOTUS while 54% of Americans knew who Judge Wapner was.

I bet the number's even lower on the CJSCOTUS side now.

Please be careful before typing just the words

 

"...And Judge Reinhold"

 

in the In Memoriam thread. You know how that looks in the unread content screen on my phone?

It's okay.  Just as long as we never forget him from the good days:

Damn, that sucks.  My mom watches TCM all the time and really like Robert as host.  I know they have the youngerish guy there who's good, but he's not Robert.  Didn't realize he was that old, to me he seemed to be at most in his early 70s.  RIP, Robert.
