SIDNEY:  Thank you for your support and kind words.  I wasn't apologizing to the person who wrote it, but to the people here who had to read it and for using this board as my release.  I was sarcastically apologzing about the spelling.  I have to say that I know that spelling has never been my strongest point, but even the best at spelling make mistakes as well.  I was a bit shocked and angry by it, but it didn't upset me and I actually had to laugh at it.  I know people are like that and everyone has the right to have their own opinions and to voice them, even me.  After reading it, it answered my question as to how I lost community points.  I thought that was pretty funny in itself and I am sure they will be back to take more away.  What ever makes them feel good. 

I appreciate all of the friends that I have made here, but not everyone feels the same about me and that is fine, I don't expect them to.  I do know that there are several members here who are also members at this other board, including the one who made the comments, so I know for a fact that there are some who don't like me.  So be it.  No one likes everybody that is just life. 

Thank you for your concern about my surgery.  All went well and I am now back home and on the road to recovery.

Ah, I almost forgot.

I wrote my list of The Most Anticipated Films of 2010 and in the list of 50 other films of 2010 in the Arthouse section.  I have film starring Lauren from the writer-directing team of Ryan Fleck & Anna Boden of Sugar and Half Nelson called It's Kind of a Funny Story

That is a very ambitious project and impressive list.  I have to say that there are several that I haven't heard of yet and that there are some that I agree with and some that I don't, but that is to be expected, I guess, since no two people agree on everything.  I didn't really have the time to read it all, mainly just go through the titles, but will go back later to read more.  Did you get to see all of the ones that you really wanted to see for 2009?  I went to see 2012 yesterday.  Still not sure just how I felt about it and that is really weird.

I didn't get to see a lot of films that came out this year.  Personally, I've become quite disenchanted with what Hollywood is putting out and I've been disappointed with what's been coming out.  There's some good films but there's a lot of bad movies this year.

I didn't get to see very many at the theater, but did see several on HBO and Showtime.  I have to say that movies just aren't as good as they used to be.  I spend more time reading than I do watching TV or going to the show.

I blame Hollywood.  They're too busy making remakes or having films based on gimmicks or franchises.

I'm an arthouse guy.  I want to see films that come from directors I like.  The 25 films on the list, the majority of them are films by some of my favorite directors.  I don't go for gimmicks or the lame Oscar-bait type of films.  I just want to see a film that's worth my time.  That means no 2012 or big box office films.

I prefer to see films that have something to say.  Besides, I'm already upset over the fact that there's a couple of 80s classics being remade.  The Karate Kid as The Kung-Fu Kid with Will Smith's son and Jackie Chan and a remake of Caddyshack in the works. 

This is why we need the Gilmore Girls movie now.  We need something that is really, really good.

I'm not into the remakes myself.  I sometimes think it is okay if they are remaking an older film so that those who haven't seen the original can see it, but I won't go to see it. 

I don't really follow the behind the scenes stuff that much so I don't really know that many directors or keep track of what films they have done.  I am becoming more aware of some of them and what they have done, though.  If a movie comes out with a director who has done movies that I have liked then I will go to see the movie.  I am learning to pay more attention to the director end of movies.  I do tend to like the smaller films more.  They have more of a purpose or feel about them.  They actually tell a story.  I do, however, enjoy some of the big box office films.  Sometimes I just want to be entertained and not have to really think about what I am watching.  Some people really enjoy all of the action packed movies with all of the special effects.  That doesn't bring me into a movie.  I didn't want to go see 2012, but my husband wanted to go to the show and there wasn't anything that I wanted to see that I haven't already seen so I let him pick and that is what he wanted to see.  I think that the best part about the movie was Woody Harrelson's character.  I am not a Woody Harrelson fan, but that part was taylor made for him and it/he was so funny.  There were a few things in it that made me think of family members, one being my sister who lives in Santa Monica.  A lot of the movie was so predictable and I thought how it ended pretty lame. 

I would love to see a Gilmore Girls movie for either the theaters or TV, but I am not holding my breath for it.

Woah, looks like I missed something major.

Some arthouse movies are good, some arthosue movies are too busy trying to be arthouse and spend too little time trying to be a good movie.

I agree sometimes Lauren jokes too much, I read an article YEARS ago, where she opened up about her Mother, and it was really vunerable and delicate and interesting to read, but i've never found it again.


Parenthood looks ok, too much like Lorelai for my liking. I guess she suffers from the same problem most people who've been on an iconic show have, which is that people like seeing them as one thing, and get very little coverage in different roles. I'm well aware that she's played other roles, but in mainstream, unfortunatly, she'll always be Lorelai gilmore, or similar.

I wish that I would have seen that article where she talked about her Mother.  It must have been before I started watching GG. 

Lauren's part as Sarah in Parenthood is going to be a lot different from Lorelai from what I can see.  You can go to http://www.nbc.com/parenthood/home.shtml    which is the official sight for the show and it will tell you more about the show.  You can go into where it says video and see the promos that have already aired for the show.  The one with Sarah and her boyfriend is really funny, though, from what I have been reading about the show, it is going to be more of a drama than a comedy unless they have decided to change the format.   I hope that Lauren won't end up in a Lorelai rut when it comes to future projects.  I know that she will try to stear away from those parts as best she can.  She is so talented that she can take on any part as long as she is given the chance and I sure do hope that she will be given it.

Ah nice.

Anyone up for some insults towards Jay Leno & NBC.

We need Conan & Fallon on TV.  Leno's comedy is bland and boring.  Conan & Fallon are silly yet loveable.  Plus, I think Fallon is starting to improve as a talk show host.  He needs his shot.

I'll skip on the insults towards Jay, there are so many out there right now and I really do agree with them all.  As many mistakes as what NBC has made, I really don't want too much bashing about them because they are giving us Lauren Graham back in what looks  to be a pretty good show.

I agree that Conan & Fallon are who we need on TV.  Yes, they are silly and fun to watch and Lauren and so many others play off of them really well.  They both need to get their shot to shine on late night TV. 

Everything that I am hearing is between Jay and Conan.  Has anyone heard if Jimmy Fallon is staying put?

I believe he is staying though I bet he's not happy that Conan is out.
