I’ve probably seen the full original movie but I’m not 100% I’ve seen it in one sitting. Never seen any of the sequels though.

Apes aren’t really my thing.

Considering the cash cow POTA merchandising turned out to be, I’m amazed Fox let Lucas walk away with the Star Wars merchandising rights.
Still the only action figure line that encourages kids to do horrific experiments on captured humans. Good times! 😃

I don’t suppose that doc explains how the Emo Phillips version of Journey To The Center Of The Earth mutated into a sequel to Alien From L.A.?

People keep suggesting the new Apes films to me, (I did see the first one with a group) and I have to keep reminding them I’m old school POTA. Some have no idea there was an entire series of films and two tv show spinoffs in the 60’s and 70’s.

I seem to recall someone here once saying The Hill leans left, and maybe that’s true, but they just gave space to SEBASTIAN FUCKING GORKA.

Here’s just two fun stories on Gorka.

I was ruminating recently on how I never saw this Gorka guy on tv before the election. Like he popped up out of nowhere. Can’t decide if he’s like a character in a Bond film, or someone who would have been Damien Thorn’s mysterious close presidential adviser. 😉

JEDIT:I figured it out. He looks like Mr. French…uh…Satan, from that Twilight Zone episode where a recently deceased petty criminal thinks he’s in heaven, but is so very wrong.

Yeah, things sadly got pretty goofy towards the end with him. I liked him better with shades of gray. Would have been more poetic if Kira had been able to kill him though.

The Mummy (1999) 35mm Feature Film SCOPE print!!!

How about not crapping in a thread? If you have access to a rare print and deep enough pockets, knock yourself out.

And some of us like a grindhouse look once in a while. Puggo’s 16mm transfers and The War Of The Stars fanedit are good examples.

Sorry for going off on a tangent then. Still amazing they never heard of the song though.

Not everybody needs to know the same things.

It’s not essential information, but a basic awareness of popular culture never hurt. I’m not even a Sinatra guy, but I know who he is and what his signature tune was.
The old joke about people who think Paul McCartney’s first band was Wings is being replaced by “Paul who?”

Yeah but I’m sure you don’t know stuff that people thirty years older than you might.

Maybe? Depends on the subject. But that’s what old movies, documentaries, and history books are for. Not to mention that internet thing the kids seem to like.
I don’t need to know about Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers to enjoy Star Wars, but it deepens my enjoyment of it.
For some people these days anything prior to 2000 might as well be a hundred years ago.

Standing by your man is one thing, refusing to even read the email where your man’s son blatantly admits what you don’t want to believe is something entirely different.

At least I think it is. I don’t remember much of Nixon. :p

Denial plain and simple. I suspect a whole lot of people are going to need therapy when the dominoes start falling and reality won’t go away. Or they’ll just repeat “Trump was framed!” like a mantra.
