OK, but let's offset some of that hate with lots of love for Trading Places. One of the great movies of our time.

Her appearance in that movie is burned in my consciousness. She should have gotten an award for ... Best Appearance in a starring role.

Hate has been experiencing a popular resurgence lately, but I find it passe. I'm even tired of the things *I* "hate." Maintaining that folder is too much work. I also got past the fact that I've seen so many movies and TV shows that the story's loop point appears too quickly in so-called new things. Nostalgia is generally great until you take off the rosey glasses. Some material is timeless and some developed a pervasive gamey smell after the first two weeks. You hate "Blue Steel;" I love "Blue Thunder," an amusingly noisy civil-rights wet-dream for hyper-hawks, featuring a super-surveillance helicopter that can hover silently and watch you shower through a wall. This was in pre-drone 1983, yikes. It also has a killer soundtrack employing a lot of synth work, wrought by Arthur B. Rubinstein, Cynthia Morrow, Brian Banks and Anthony Marinelli. I prefer to leave the bad flicks in the box with Joe Bob Briggs reviews and MAD magazine parodies.

You may be missing the original point, David... but that's okay, because I also love Blue Thunder. I also liked Airwolf on TV, but just because I liked Ernest Borgnine more than Jan Michael Vincent. wink

I was an Airwolf fan--I liked the helicopter more than any of the actors. I didn't follow JMV's career post-Airwolf, but now that it's in reruns on one of my cable channels I got curious. It seems that JMV was one of those redneck hair-trigger banty roosters who should've had their asses kicked on a regular basis. His story reminds me of a country artist I had the misfortune to play for, a wife-beater. But time has a way of balancing the scales. JMV is suffering a very slow and painful death. Good riddance.

I thought the point was two-fold: "Blue Steel" sucketh, Jamie Lee does not. If any OT point made triggers a synth observation, it is immediately sanctified.

For me, this 4 and a half minute bit, is non stop funny back and forth between these 2 comedians. I have more, just asks.

edit: 3 minutes have elapsed and no interest?
Here is another:


Another 3 minutes, and still nothing.. this is bullshite.


Another 3 hours, and nothing, this is crazy.. another video thrown on the fire.
