I have to admit, I have a hard time thinking of poutine, or seeing it on a menu without being the same way.

I'll never see Beavis and Butthead without thinking they look like Don Jr. and Eric Trump.

But, the poutine is NOTHING compared to the "Big Jazz Burger" at one of my local restaurants. I will have to photograph it and add it here. Ever... single.... person in my party saw it on the menu, and thought it said something other than "Jazz"... it was the font choice.  I was literally afraid I would slip and order the incorrect burger. (insert Beavis/Butthead laughing here).
My response to all of that: :2funny:

And now I also have this funny image of the two of us being Beavis and Butthead.

Confuse future archeologists by burying your dead pets in military uniforms.. :)
;D That's funny!

I came here to post that I heard a local DJ talk about poutine this morning. I almost did the Beavis and Butthead laugh.

There's a few new movies I'd like to see, Kong being one of those. Also Beauty and the Beast, Get Out, The Belko Experiment, and opening this weekend are Power Rangers and Life. I doubt I make it to see all of those though.

Power Rangers is the one I'm most surprised to see on my own list. I never watched the original series. In fact, several months ago I watched the very first episode of the series on Netflix, and that's the only episode I've seen. So I don't come to this as a fanboy in any way. It looks interesting.

I saw a Facebook post from Chuck Berry's page mentioning that plans for his upcoming album were going to continue as scheduled. I'm looking forward to hearing some new material from him.

I prefer him ten more times than Matt Damon. I liked him in Interview with the Vampire, Mission Impossible movies and Knight and Day. I haven't watched Jack Reacher, now I am curious.
I enjoy Matt Damon as well. I think both guys are good actors.

I don't know anything about the Jack Reacher in the book, but Hugh Jackman would probably be good.

Logan was great! Very brutal, and probably the most adult oriented superhero movie I've seen (Deadpool is definitely "adult" but also appeals to the 12 year olds in all of us ;D).

That looks great! O0

Matt, those sculptures are cool! I especially like the ice cream cone. ;D

Beautiful views of Sweden from my cabin this morning..

Why all the dislike of Cruise? He's continued to put out some good work.

I don't know much about the 4K releases, but it's cool to see they're doing something special for Unforgiven's 25th anniversary. I have the 10th anniversary DVD release. I would love it if they'd show the movie in theaters for its anniversary this year. It'd be a great one to see on the big screen.

I'm curious which out of the three is everyone's favorite. Well, I'd imagine it'd be more between Yojimbo and A Fistful of Dollars. I saw Last Man Standing a long time ago, and it was okay I guess.

Considering where we're discussing this, of course Fistful might have the upper hand. But I remember Yojimbo being a fun movie. But between the two, I'd say A Fistful of Dollars, which is a movie I've grown to appreciate more and more.

I just watched Rope again. I'd seen it years ago, and then just saw where Rawhide had asked if people had seen it earlier in this thread. I think it's a terrific movie.

Matt, you grew up in Philadelphia, right? I also want to ask about what the story is behind the giant clothespin. :o :D

That first image isn't showing ... someone doesn't like hotlinks. (How 2000's!)
I love the finger-wagging picture in its place. ;D

Robert Osborne, the host from Turner Classic Movies, has died at the age of 84. I've missed his introductions for the last while that he'd been absent on TCM.

If the goal is to make the show shorter, make cuts elsewhere to the show, not to the individual categories handed out.

I didn't see any of it this year though. I was glad to hear Zootopia took best animated film, which I knew it would. It wouldn't have been out of place as a best picture nominee.

I was very surprised to hear of Bill Paxton's death yesterday afternoon. Near Dark is one movie of his I saw a long time ago that I liked a lot.

I'd forgotten he'd directed Eastwood on Eastwood. I don't remember offhand if I've seen Eastwood Directs.

Good grief. I guess Hemingway isn't very popular any more among young folks.
I read "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" for a lit class I was teaching several years ago, but had no idea what country it's in. I remember thinking how interesting it is that Gregory Peck was cast as the lead in the movie, but I haven't seen it.
