But what if the gathering/festivites in DIe Hard was a retirement, birthday party, wedding, etc? It wouldn't be a Christmas movie. White Christmas (which is a favorite of mine, and wished the damned soundtrack was properly available, but isn't because of recording contracts of the time) is set duri...

Is Field of Dreams a baseball movie? I mean, couldn't it have been a football field with Frank Filchock instead of Shoeless Joe? Some of the specifics of the story are fairly unique to baseball and the emotional pull of "America's Pastime". Shoeless Joe transcends the sport in a way Filchock simply...

White Christmas not a Christmas movie? The ending is one of the christmasiest christmasy moments in the history of film. Exact same argument for Wonderful Life. Get out of here with this nonsense. Name one thing in either movie has to happen at Christmas. White Christmas is about veterans of the Ba...

There must be something intrinsic to the story that requires it take place at [time of year] for it to be a "[time of year] movie" imo.


That seems oddly specific.
Well, so is choosing the setting of your story.

The only thing I've ever seen of his TV show is that moment with Giuliani where the guy contradicted himself like 5 times in as many minutes. But I listen to SXM POTUS all the time, and occasionally catch his show. He is extremely smug and condescending to his producer - he's fond of mansplaining th...

If a movie is set during the Christmas season, it's a Christmas movie, no? Why is this even up for debate?

Sounds like west side story is great, this wasn't really on my radar as a must see, but the more I'm thinking about it, the more I could really use some new Spielberg in the theater.

If a movie takes place at [X] but its story is not dependent on it being at [X], then it is not a(n) "[X] movie".

Die Hard has to take place at Christmas for all the narrative threads to converge. It's A Wonderful Life does not.

So what I learned from all of this is tif is super old. Got it.
The biggest problem we had was standing still for so long and keeping the flash lamps away from the venue's fire suppression system.

Once again, I would like to tip my hat to the world for being in on the ploy to get American Democrats voted into political office. It takes a lot of work to keep a global conspiracy of this scale under wraps and everything on the down low, so you guys are really doing yeoman's work. *golf clap*

A bullet is still rising above the bore axis at 50 yds, so on a 100 yd zero you'd have to hold low. Point of aim isn't point of impact.

I think. I don't know, I'm just here for the punch and pie.

I wouldn't do that at all. I'd give the ones who requested files a payment deadline and tell them if they don't pay by then all files will be deleted. I would only keep files for the 1 year agreed upon term. Do you deliver the digital files with your original delivery? I used to bend over backwards...

They can only control us if they’re in office and more mandates is not a good way to get re-elected. I know I’m trying to apply logic to the illogical.
I still can't figure this out. To what end does this 'control' benefit those in power? How is this mess good for them?
