Crop And Save
Glenn Beck (2006)
The Clown Prince of Clowns
The only thing more inane than Beck are the people that would actually watch him.
Beck does absolutely no research on any topic that he discusses. It's all just stream of unconsciousness.
Oh, and the emotion...the phony tears and angst. I haven't seen a display like this since dad wouldn't give my little brother the car keys on Saturday night.
Now should we talk about the sponsor's that have run from this show because of his racist, bigoted comments? With Beck, the old axiom applies: The best part of him ran down the bulldogs leg.
The Delinquents (1957)
Nifty Fiftys Flick
Regardless of what some of the other uninformed reviewers here may think, this is a great little picture of the 1950s teen scene.
Of course we don't have the budget or production values of Dean's "Rebel" but the compact story and action move along swiftly.
It's interesting to watch such a young Billy Jack, and of course Dick Bakalyan turns in a great performance of, what else, a punk.
And yes some of the other cast members, besides Lauglin, DID continue on in the business quite successfully...Miller stayed busy, finally landing a recurring role in a soap, and all you have to do is turn your set on any time any day and you can find Bakalyan in something, the guy must be filthy rich.
A good flick.
Senior Prom (1958)
None o'dat rock and roll!!!!
Yeah, I can see the producer pitching this one..."And there will be none of that damn Rock and Roll in MY picture...we'll feature REAL music!" Of course the "real" music is hammed-up show tunes with warmed over melodies and lyrics, sung by actors(?) that came straight off of Hollywood's D list.
Now they did have Louis and Keely, but you had to suffer through to the bitter end to see them. And who the hell were all the other "big names" that appeared at the prom? I was in High School in '58 and didn't recognize many of them...maybe Ed Sullivan.
And the biggest curse of all in this lame little loser? Tom (Billy Jack) Loughlin getting his butt whipped by some fair-haired fairy dude.
How did MST3K miss this one?
Low, LOW Budget early TV
Yeah, this was REAL low budget stuff. The entire musical score was some apprentice on a Hammond Organ. The sets were made of cardboard and the acting was just as stiff. Watching this gives you a chance to see just how desperate the post-war generation was for at-home entertainment. the best part of the episodes I saw were the Kaiser-Frazier auto commercials. I guess I'll add this so the school-marms at this site will give me credit for 10 lines. Have I made it yet? No, not yet. So let's try a few more words here. There, I think that does it. No? Maybe this will be enough. Good lord, how many more words do these folks want? Someone needs to send them to effective writing classes.
Hardball with Chris Matthews (1997)
This show is great fun for two reasons. first of all, it is always neat to see which side of the bed Matthews woke up on today. The guy must be bi-polar, as he is never consistent on any two days on the same issue. The second reason to watch this show is to count how many times spittle will erupt from Chris's mouth.
As with most political talk shows, this one never delves into the real issues but goes for topics sure to attract viewers...like weather or not Cindy McCain bakes her own cookies, or if Michele Obama really is proud of America.
A total waste of time for those hungry for real news talk.
Don't Stop the Carnival
Nah, Don't stop the MSNBC carnival! Where else can you find so many two-headed ninnies, hustlers, barkers and geeks in one spot? Scarborough, Matthews, Abrams, and last, but not least, Tucker Carlson.
Carlson began his career as a bow-tied little political fabricator, jumping from news show to news show spewing his right-wing diatribe. When MSNBC offered him one job, and it failed, then another, and alas another, he finally shed the bow tie, but he didn't get any better.
Tuckers show is no different than any of the other cable news affairs; we are offered pundits, guests, news clips, headlines and an occasional intentional funny person. The funniest thing EVER on TV was Tucker Carlson's short-lived stint on "Dancing With the Stars" where he proved he couldn't get out of his much loved chair.
MSNBC is in dire need of a programing shake-up, and it should start with the cancellation of "Tucker" and "Morning Joe." Once purged of those two and "Hardball" the station would have only one half of a decent show left to air..."Countdown" with Keith Olbermann, and he is only right about half the time.
No, don't cancel "Tucker"...just move his show to Comedy Central.
Morning Joe (2007)
After the demise of Imus, MSNBC auditioned a number of concepts for their morning news program before finally, and unfortunately settling on MORNIN' JOE.
Scarbourough, once a congressman, just does not posses the personality to drive a three and often four hour morning news show. He is abrasive, argumentative, and often just plain rude to his guests, and quite often displays vast amounts of chauvinistic behavior towards his co-host, Mika Brezenzski. In fact, on occasions it appears that he actually brow-beats the poor lass with his right-wing diatribe.
If all this weren't bad enough, he continues to attempt to engage in feeble humorous quips, all the while openly flirting with his other co-host Willie Geiss. If the viewer STILL hasn't been offended by now, just stay tune...Pat Buchanan will be on as a regular to finish the job for you.
I suppose that there are some improvements that could be made by MSNBC to keep this show on the air...perhaps they could dump Joe and Willie and let Mika do the show solo and naked. Otherwise this is a total loss.
Gun Brothers (1956)
I wasn't going to watch this one when I read the brief synopsis on the TV menu, however it was a cold day, so I thought-"What the heck." I was truly surprised. I wasn't expecting much from a low B flick featuring a beyond-the-prime Buster Crabbe. However, there was a lot to be said for this little effort. First of all the cast is simply great...Neville Brand, Michael Ansara, the sexy Lita Milan, the young and gorgeous Ann Richardson, even a young Slim Pickens! The plot is an old one, the older brother returns from the wars to discover that younger brother is in league with the baddies. But the acting and limited production values maintain interest throughout.
A pleasant surprise on a cold afternoon.
If You Loved the Book, You'll Hate the Movie!
THE RAP, the book this movie was 'based' on was one of the most difficult books I've ever read. Yet I could not put it down. Raunchy, crude, foul, lewd...you name it, it had it. It also had some of the best characterizations of any novel I've ever read.
Well, as for the flick...it was deplorable. I mean, Tim Mcintire as Wasco? Wasco was the baddest mutha...talking 'bout WASCO...Mcintire as Wasco is like casting Tim Conway as Charles Manson.
What happened to the MAIN character in the book? Little Arv. He doesn't even exist in the movie...Fast Walking WAS NOT the main dude in the book. Why even name credit this thing with THE RAP? None of the spirit, atmosphere, nastiness, or drama of the book was captured in this movie.
For me it was not only a disappointment, but a total waste of time and celluloid.
The Heartbreak Kid (2007)
I tried to watch it
I really tried to watch this movie.
The plot had nothing to do with the original movie title.
The acting was nowhere near the caliber of the original.
It wasn't funny.
It wasn't cool.
I'd rather eat a piece of pecan pie than try and watch this again.
Oh, I've just been told that I cannot express my views on this movie because my comment does not contain enough lines.
Who ever is running IMDb sounds like my 7th grade teacher.
Do I have enough lines now, Teach?
