I firmly agree. It had a lot of hilarious satire and adult jokes mixed in with the usual corny hijinks. Plus all the songs were really performed by Letters To Cleo, and I love them.

Sneakers has a steller cast and the topic has only become more relevant over time.

Josie And The Pussycats and Sneakers


Was that a sequel or something? Never heard of it (he said sarcastically).

Use your Oxford commas, people!

2001.  I have the Blu-Ray. It's so authentic and true to the original that it includes the full length intermission.  Get up, make a sammich, and come back length.

I watched the josie and the pussycats movie like a month ago and apart from the music being good it was a pretty stupid movie

Thief is a great flick, probably one of James Caan's best.
Also, one of the cops is played by John Santucci an actual thief. He was also a "technical advisor"

Micky and Nicky is an amazing movie.  It seems out of character for Elaine May, but it's based on some of the real-life hoods she came into contact with through her father, who was in the Mob.

It's an amazing portrait of small-time hoods who have reached the end of the line and really can't pull any more scams to get out of the predicament they've gotten themselves into.

Josie and the Pussycats was a far, far better movie than people give it credit for. AND it had Dean Martin's grandson it in.

No, but they're all on my wank list.

Sneakers is the feel-good crime comedy of the 1990s. With a cast to rival Ocean's 11...

Sneakers
is a far superior film, pretty much on every level.

Fark.  And I thought I was in a rare breed.  I get up and make another tub of popcorn, grab a Coke, take a piss and return (not necessarily in that order)

I find the intermission just so...  cool.  A forced break for reflection...  or simply to take a piss and grab more coke and popcorn

The first time I saw it, I thought it would be a five second nod to the original.  Once I realized it was the real thing, I got up and refreshed and just as I sat down the movie started again :D

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

also includes the original intermission. But at 2h30 to 3h15 (if you're watching the extended roadshow version), that intermission can be very needed.

FTA: Christopher Nolan publicly described the plan as one where, "Some of our industry's biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the greatest movie studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service."

I have Netflix, HULU, Amazon Prime, and HBO MAX. I watch HBO the most because they have an awesome catalog of movies...plus new releases as Nolan states. Plus Curb, etc. But the movies are endless and awesome.

Nolan is a douche who demanded people crowd into theaters at the height of a pandemic because he didn't believe that a TV screen could truly deliver his cinematic vision to the world.

The fact that the overture/intermission screens are giant black rectangles one stares into looking for meaning should not be lost on the viewer.

My favorite scene in the Josie and the Pussycats movie is the one in which the band manager's sister makes a brief appearance. When her brother asks her why she was there, she replies that she is in the cartoon.

When I saw it in the theatre, I had read the book so I knew what it was about.  I had to explain it to my mom, but that's what 12 year old kids are for :)  Now they explain internets and stuff.

MurphyMurphy: Rachael Leigh Cook was quite the smokewagon.


One of the many reasons I despise She's All That.

"So you say we can pick any girl in this school and in six weeks you can turn her into a prom queen? We choose....Laney Boggs."
"No, no Laney Boggs. C'mon, guys. Gimme a girl who is fat or ugly, but Laney is just....weird."
"Like Hollywood would ever make a movie for a teenage audience where the female lead is genuinely homely or overweight. So what we are going to do, is get an amazingly hot chick to play the female lead...but she wears glasses. And she is an artist with her own independent personality. And we'll pretend that convincing her to conform to conventional Barbie standards is the far more challenging prospect. Plus, it's the lesson we want to teach today's teenagers: Individuality is for losers."
"Great idea!. And you know what would be a hilarious comedic set piece? A scene where the school bully is picking on the girl's younger brother by dumping pubes all over his cafeteria lunch, and it's going to be all, 'no gross, that jerk is making that poor kid eat pubes'. But then I come along, and I say 'no way, pal. You are going the be the one eating those pubes.' And then the bully has to eat his own pubes."
"Brilliant! The comedy works on so many levels! The bully thought the weird girl's younger brother was going to be eating his pubes, but he ends up having to eat his own pubes. Now that's irony!"
"Now you go get on that microphone for the school's morning announcements and gleefully announce to the entire school that my girlfriend brutally dumped me, because that's the sort of thing that friends do to each other."

it wasn't even having her conform to Barbie standards.  They brushed her hair, put some lipstick on her, and gave her a shirt that wasn't baggy.  It was a two minute makeover because she was always super hot.

I watched Tenet on HBOMAX last night because I RTFA.

1.  John David Washington is as good as his dad.  Better maybe.
1.a Sparkle Twilight Vampire guy is also really good.
2.  Critiques on the sound design are well founded.   Level that shiat out.
3.  Otherwise I liked it.   Great action scenes, and the bit with the 747 was fantastic.
4.  The whole "People that spend millions on art won't spent a little more because of TAXES" bothered me as some contrived writing at first, but then I remembered the timeline in which we live.

I found the movie on Amazon Prime last night and the vocal credits went to Rachael, Rosario, Tara, Biff Naked and one other girls name that I did not recognize that may have been the lead singer for Letters To Cleo.
No Letters To Cleo.

Also the first song in the first minute of the movie was called Back Door Boys
