    I don't think Mr. Romney has any chance whatsover of beating the incumbent. This is McCain, part II. Democrats can rest easy. It's in the bag.

    Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)

    Saw it on the big screen this past weekend, in glorious black and white, and featuring the stars, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in rare form. This film doesn't hold up very well, in part due to the...

    Re: the picture in post 11686. When the new antenna is put up, this classic scene should be recreated. With the same ironworkers, if possible.

    Am not a fan of Tower 2, so actually I hope it doesn't get built in its present plan. The top is kid stuff and awkward. Perhaps after a few years the plans can be redrafted so we get something...

    Aaaaaaack. Not a single candidate has challenged the fact that the U.S. government has essentially banned the traditional 100 watt light bulb. But that's ok...it's a "free" country.

    As for those EWR arrivals, flight crews will know of the glare problem and be prepared for it. Best option is simply to fly the ILS approach.

    Am not optimistic about any future efforts to finish the tower. The Hearst tower, uptown was never finished off its original inception. What happened there is well-known to readers of WNY.

    What surprises me is there's not one Democrat willing to challenge the President for his party's nomination. The Democrats are lock-step behind their guy, thinking that Obama can't lose. Oh, yes he...

    The first two MIB films were lots of fun; however, the second one clocked in at something like 85 minutes which is an obvious money grab. I suspect MIB 3 may be even shorter, still. Let's see how...

    Stocked up on 100 watt light bulbs, enough for at least 10 years. Next I'll start buying the 75s and 60s.

    Melancholia

    Yes, friends, this movie is truly that bad.

    Idiotic script. A full one hour into the film, you still had no clue what was going on. One minute the film is showing a woman in a bathtub, the...

    I like the Manhattan schist idea.

    On a related note, it makes no sense to have built the base with odd angles and now to disguise all that complex engineering and fabrication with straight lines.

    Margin Call

    A very good film worth seeing. Great cast, which includes Jeremy Irons, Kevin Spacey, and Demi Moore.

    The annoying part was "The Departed" level of gratuitous F-bombs, which added nothing...

    Two hours of terrific acting, a superb script, great location shots, and edge-of-your seat suspense. One of the best films I have seen this year. Worth seeking out. Don't be surprised if this...

    Is there enough room, on the site of the (planned) performing arts center, to build another one of these? I may have asked this very same question a few years back.
