  • I'm almost 100% certain I heard Scott Menville's voice in Eagle Eye, during the scene when the main characters go into Circuit City. His voice is heard on a Circuit City ad playing in the background.

    Couldn't find his name in the credits :/

    Yeah, if he did that voice (and again, it REALLY sounds like him) he was uncredited. I've heard an uncredited Cam Clarke in Walker, Texas Ranger too.
    People are surprised when I tell them I've hardly seen any of the Marvel movies. I guess they assume that everybody sees all of them by default. I've seen Spider-Man 1-3, X-Men 1-3, Black Panther, Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse, and that's it. Maybe someday I'll get caught up via Disney+, but there are so many, so it's pretty daunting.

    Actual conversation I had recently: "I've seen more DC movies than Marvel movies." "What DC movies are there?" So I had to rattle off the big ones (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc), plus the animated DTV line. She was surprised there were that many.

    I've seen...one...Marvel movie. So I guess I win?
    It's amazing how much I relate to Sheldon in the Big Bang episode "The Dead Hooker Juxtaposition". I'm always a nervous wreck whenever someone new moves in next door or upstairs/downstairs (back when I used to live in an apartment)- you don't know if they're going to be loud asses.
    I used to be more into Star Wars than Star Trek. But the older I get, the more I find myself gravitating away from Star Wars in favor of Star Trek. Go figure.

    I've always felt like Star Wars is for kids and Star Trek is for adults.
    Had to shut off another movie before it's finished: Larger Than Life. Didn't laugh once. Gene Siskel, what were you smoking?

    Gene Siskel's skills as a critic have always been shady. There is probably a reason Roger Ebert hated him.

    I mean, there have been times when I agreed with him- this was not one of them. See also Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy.
    Just found out Larry Storch passed away at 99. For those that don't know, he did numerous voices for Looney Tunes shorts after the studio reopened in 1967, including voicing Cool Cat. Not too many LT golden age alum left...

    Oh yeah, I forgot about him.

    Late note, but I have recently thought of someone who did voiceover for Warner Bros. Cartoons (albeit outside LT/MM) who's still alive: Elizabeth MacRae, from The Incredible Mr. Limpet (and later of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. fame).

    Another late note (sorry): I thought of another one, albeit for the Cartoon Special "Norman Normal"- N. Paul Stookey, one of two voice actors for the cartoon. He was a member of Peter, Paul and Mary, who did the namesake song.

    I have never watched a single episode of Transformers. And really not interested in sampling it anytime soon.

    I forgot about Beast Machines. I have seen a few random episodes of it, mainly being intrigued by its CG animation at a time when it wasn't common on TV, but I never quite got into it.

    One of the things that really set Beast Wars and Machines apart from other shows was that they both had legitimate endings at time when almost every other show just stopped.

    Another random thought: bash the episodic cheesiness of the 80's series (I agree it overall didn't age very well), but the 1986 "Transformers: The Movie" is awesome and still better than any of the Michael Bay films.
    You know how TV listings often abbreviate show names to fit in the tiny boxes? I remember one of the funniest ones was when they shortened "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" to "You Afraid?"
    Most re-watched DVDs in my collection? Probably Late Night With Conan O'Brien 10th Anniversary Special and The Best of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. They're perfect comfort food.

    My comfort food is Mystery Science Theater 3000 or reruns of 80's/90's cartoons. But I use the streaming services, not DVDs....
    I tried watching Once Upon a Time in America. I gave up after an hour into its three hour running time. I think that's fair. If a movie isn't doing anything for me in that amount of time, it's probably not going to. Shame too, because I heard good things about the longer version.

    I got about that far (maybe a little further) when I was about 17. I don't think I disliked it, just didn't find it very interesting. I picked in up cheap on DVD a few years ago with the intent of giving it another shot but, er, that hasn't happened yet.
    Watched Johnny Mnemonic for the first time today. Disappointed. I was hoping there would be more action in cyberspace, but most of it took place in real world 2021, which looked only slightly different than 1995.

    Could you please my age.
    I was born in 2008 (the month and day are the same)
    I am deeply sorry for lying about my age and I will never do it again.

    Not him, but I just went ahead and did that.
    A visual trope in anime I don't like? Characters who always have their eyes closed. Unless the character is blind, no human being ever walks around with their peepers shut. I feel like Mary Albright on 3rd Rock: "Open your DAMN eyes!"

    Go for the superior long hair covers eyes , so they don't have to draw eyes in the budget

    How often is it done in Western cartoons? All I can think of off-hand (racial stereotypes notwithstanding) is Jon Arbuckle's mother from Garfield.
    They can't all be winners. I made it through about 15 minutes of Semi-Pro before turning it off. If a comedy movie hasn't tickled my funny bone in that amount of time, it's probably not going to improve.

    Not very funny, but I did enjoy the retro 70s style and soundtrack.

    Strange thing is, I liked Taladega Nights, another sports-themed Will Ferrell movie. Go figure.

    Different writer\director; most of Ferrell's best movies were his collaborations with Adam McKay (although I personally didn't like Nights as much as their other collaborations)
    It's funny how many times Jonathan Banks has been popping up in old movies I've watched lately. I watched Crocodile Dundee in L.A.- he's there! 48 Hrs.- there he is again! Under Siege 2- look who it is! Beverly Hills Cop - oh hai, Jon!

I know this is nerdy pedantry but it bug me when writers refer to cartoons that aired in Prime Time or Syndication as "Saturday Morning Cartoons". I don't expect the average person to know/care, but when you're writing an article or a video essay? Come on, you should get that right.
Oh hey today is my 8th anniversary here, I regret sometimes not making my account sooner, since I knew about this place as early as 2012. Anyhow time sure flies.
Posting less going well. No warnings for anything so I think the board agrees. Still present for everything and DO read what you guys say. But if I see something I don't like I keep my damn mouth shut. It's for the best.
20 Years ago today, Discovery Kids on NBC launched , it was my first introduction to Discovery Kids. I didn't have digital cable so I didn't have the channel. I liked Trading Spaces: Boys vs Girls. Tutenstien, Kenny the Shark, Time Warp Trio, Darcy's Wild Life.
Reading about Shea Fontana and watching this video with Ann Austen makes me want to see them collaborate on a project someday.
