Just ordered Barry Lyndon.

Bought that from BN during the last sale. No hard feelings, though, because a) it’s only a couple bucks and b), I had a gift card.

No titles I was after. I want to pick up Some Like it Hot. Will pick it up the next BN sale or Black Friday at Amazon (anyone know if they discount these then?).

Also ordered Liberty Valence, which has been sitting in my cart for awhile now.

Excellent choice. I’ve been getting into westerns lately myself. There’s a local TV station that plays Gunsmoke like 3 times a day. What a great show.

I like westerns but don’t watch enough. And I’ve been on a B&W kick lately. So it seemed a natural choice.

Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)

I’m sure the anti-trust people would finally see that as a bridge too far.

They already were forced to sell the local Fox Sorts networks that they acquired since they own espn already, which is one of only two major players in national 24/7 sports coverage.

ABC/NBC would never be allowed to merge.

At least with the loss of Fox as an independent studio, WB, Universal, and Sony/Columbia should be able to pick up the slack. The same certainly won’t be true for network TV, and probably won’t be the same if another studio is lost.

I think Escape from the planet of the Apes is underrated.

It’s certainly the best of the sequels. As in the only one that’s watchable. But it is good.

But… Conquest…

Is that the one wear the apes and people are living in peace in the jungle on the edge of NYC until the radicals mount a war? and then at the end the two people decide to worship the Atom bomb?
