“"Pulp Fiction" should have won over "Gump" and "Shawshank." It's certainly hard to argue that Tarantino's film did not subsequently influence the industry for the last decade and a half.”

“Agree that Pulp Fiction influenced the next decade of films, but that next decade was full of terrible movies. Forrest Gump is an All Timer Great.”

“There is the view that it hasn't really been "The Tonight Show" since Carson left. Letterman has been helming a shadow government for comedy since the Leno usurption. I'd like to see Conan move to CBS and go on after Letterman. Call it "The Tomorrow Show" and move to the "Late Show" at 11:30, which is the "real" or "rightful" Tonight Show, when Dave retires. Dave's contract is up after next year and he's already indicated, what with the health concerns, it might not be too much longer after that.”

“It's too bad Conan won't get the chance to restore the historic Tonight Show. This whole thing is about Leno's (the Dorito guy) incapacity to feel shame. He sucks up to industry brass and leverages the show away from first Carson and Letterman, and now O'Brien--all of whom were funnier when their jokes didn't work than Leno is with one that does. His obvious humor and inability to carry on an interesting conversation with a guest makes me wonder what it is he has on the NBC execs. Maybe he keeps files like J. Edgar Hoover. This whole thing has actually been good for Conan, whose been as funny as ever this week to better ratings. Hopefully that will build his audience wherever he ends up. This also reminds everybody what a schmuck Leno is for ruining that show. (Twice now--and I'm talking comedic aesthetics regardless of ratings.)”

JimR on Jan 16, 2010 at 18:05:27

“Oh, get off of it. The Tonight Show has ALWAYS been about appealing to a broad audience. And yes, that has always meant rather gentle, some would say lame, comedy. I think Conan is HILARIOUS! But his edgy humor is really a bad fit for the Tonight Show.”

“Certainly not to take anything away from Mae West at all, she was very important along several trophes; but I was just reading a bio of the gangster Frank Costello in which there was an account of how it was the mafia leader's idea (he and West were friends--Costello knew
"everybody") to use his contacts in the NY courts and police department to "raid" the Mae West theatre performance that resulted in the career-making scandal and a 10-day jail term for "corrupting public morals." The 10-day sentence (8 w/ good behavior) was assured of in advance and the whole thing was undertaken with West's knowledge and happy cooperation--the level of publicity in print and radio was indeed priceless. The Broadway show in question, as you know, was called "Sex" and it had ALREADY run for 375 performances starting back in 1926 when West decided to take up Costello on his offer.”

“Thanks. Didn't know she was playing the censorship and yeah, I was off by 10 years on Carlin's birth. I wrote because I just get sick of women being cock-washed out of history. Nothing against the GREAT men like Carlin. He deserves being compared to Mark Twain! I was lucky to grow up listening to him.
I have my own personal lineage of great satirists. Including, Jonathan Swift and Voltaire, (William Blake is pretty funny in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, too) then jumping to Twain, then Dorothy Parker and Mae West... ending up with Carlin, Lewis Black and Steven Cobert. These guys know how to add a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down... You gotta laugh.”

“How about this:

If smart, educated, funny, capable, ugly, fat guys would just eat less and excercise more--then they'd be in like Flynn so long as their "ugly" doesn't approach carnival levels. Many, or at least "a bunch", of fat people are overweight for psychological reasons (fear of intimacy, for one) and/or are mired in depression and laziness. Needless to say, all of these very common mental issues work to undermine the self-confidence factor. (Which is surely--along with just trying to be yourself--the most important pick-up characteristic.) It's not fool-proof, however. Nobody likes a self-confident jackass.)”

“Werner Herzog's "Aguirre: The Wrath Of God" and "Fitzcarraldo" could easily be added. There is more tension and violence (felt more as an undercurrent in these hypnotic films). Also, anyone who hasn't already should look at the films of Dreyer, Ophuls and Lubitsch.”
