I've moved this thread to the Off Topic forum (and changed the title), since Clint is no longer attached to the project. :)

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: The Celebrity Obituary Thread
« on: June 09, 2018, 05:36:03 PM »
I read through Bourdain's whole three-page obituary (and attendant "tributes") in the Times to find out the answer to why you shouldn't order fish on Mondays. (Quoted in the lead paragraph.) They never did tell me. I had to look it up on Google. (As I suspected, it's because the creatures may have been left over from Friday.)

Anyway ... R.I.P.

Wow, this thread is a golden oldie ... remember AKA23? He was a nice kid, though he could be a pest at times. I wonder how he's doing now?

This thread is even more golden, and old, now ... and so is AKA. Though he's still a young 'un. And he is definitely not a pest any more.

I'm glad this one is not going to be done by Clint.

Hostiles



Very...very good. Great plot ,dialogue and performances, especially from Mr Bale.
One of the best of the genre since UNFORGIVEN .
Wait, I saw that, and it left me cold, as I recall. I especially resented that they outright swiped a line from Unforgiven. I disliked the constant elision of key scenes, where we're just supposed to assume X or Y happened in the unseen intervals. I found the motives muddled and in some cases incomprehensible and the characters moving through strange arcs to improbable ends. WARNING SPOILERS FOLLOW: After all she's been through, would she really just grab an orphaned Indian boy and move back to "civilization" with him? And would the good-bad man just drop everything in the West to climb on that train and follow her? I give that matchup six weeks.END SPOILERS (hit "quote" to read)

Also, because of the heavy growth of whiskers on most of the male (non-Indian) faces, I simply had trouble understanding the words that issued from their mouths. If the dialogue was "great," may I assume you saw it with subtitles?

Anyway, this was fun! Let's play again soon. 8)

According to Wikipedia, the term "selfie" dates back to 2002, and the first phone with a front-facing camera intended for selfies predates the i-phone, it goes back to 2003.

So the guys in the film more or less grew up with the concept. I still think of you as a young 'un, Matt, but neither you nor I grew up with selfies. ;)

I must have seen that picture a dozen times while I was off still-hunting ... and I knew you were irritated by all the selfie-taking scenes. So I probably should have gotten it a few questions earlier!

I'm not a selfie-taker myself, are you? (You do NOT have to show me any by way of proof!)

I have one selfie in my phone gallery, and I took it to show off a piece of jewelry to the person who gave it to me. I didn't use a stick!

11
It's a selfie stick! ;D

12
Stick, as in drumstick? :)

13
A collapsible walking stick? ???

14
Where is Gant when you need him? ???

15
Damb, I really thought I might have had it there. Especially since I found out that one of them does play the guitar.

16
Is it a guitar? :)

17
I know I'm hot! Librarians are hot! ;D



But, I haven't got a clue. Even though you said I got a bit of a hint there. Lemme think ...

18
:(

It can't be a camera, they just take pictures with their phones ... don't they? (Not a question.)

19
Is it something we see in the scenes on the train?

20
:( I don't feel warm ... there's a distinct chill in here ...
