Caught in a Ham (2019, Miguel Jiron)

By Andrew Wickliffe on May 27, 2019 From The Stop Button

I think I went into Caught in a Ham with unduly high hopes (I?ve been a Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham since 1983) and apparently I?m enough of a purist to be a little upset Spider-Ham loses out on half his four minute cartoon so it can tie into Into the Spider-Verse. There?s also the issu... Read full article

Rock Hudson Gets Caught in an Avalanche!

By Rick29 on Dec 26, 2018 From Classic Film & TV Cafe

Rock Hudson makes a call! A 3.7 rating (out of 10) on the IMDb and a 7% (out of 100%) audience score on Rotten Tomatoes might lead one to believe that a movie may be a turkey. Yet, there's always that "may" and, besides, I'm a Rock Hudson fan and have a bit of a soft spot for disaster movies. Thus,... Read full article

Quotes from

Leonora Eames: Posture and social useage
Smith Ohlrig: Social what?
Leonora Eames: Useage. You know, conversation, etiquette, how to pour tea
[Leonora mines this action with her hand]
Leonora Eames: , how to listen to music
[Leonora then places two fingers from her hand to her right ear]
Leonora Eames: , how to... please watch the road.

Leonora Eames: Look at me! Look at what you bought!

Smith Ohlrig: I was born rich. My father left me 4 million dollars. But I didn't drink it away, I didn't gamble it away, I didn't marry it away. I knew what to do with it. I've got exactly 22 and a half times that much now, and I'll have 50 times that much before I die. That's what everyone wants, isn't it? Well, I've got it. And I made it myself. Every one of my corporations - every single one - has a different staff, a different lawyer, a different accountant. Not one of them knows anything about each other. I run it all. Each one has his place, and he stays there. And why not? They're well paid. And that's what you've got to learn, Leonora. You're better paid than any of them. And you've got YOUR place: this house. And that's where you'll stay.
