Is TCM still uncut and commercial-free? I remember when AMC started showing commercials, and as a result they now suck balls.

It was insidious, wasn't it? First, there were lots of commercial-type house ads between the movies. Then actual commercials between the movies. Then house ads interrupting the movies. Finally, actual commericial interrupting the movies, which now were cut.

Plus, they started showing movies from 1995 and calling them classics.

As much as I love letterboxing, if you're watching TV a widescreen epic like "Lawrence" is best seen pan-and-scan, so you can see the characters. Even a 50" set isn't quite right. If you have a huge projection setup, that's cool.

I don't know...to me, a great movie will still be great even if your only watching it on a 13'' black and white tele. Any guitarist who's worth anything will still sound great playing an acoustic, no?

Yes, a superior guitarist will sound great playing acoustic if you listen to him on a superior sound system. but listen to that same acoustic guitar playing thru a hand held radio transmitter... do you getta the Dino's point, you putz?

Of course I get his point...but people grew up loving and watching movies on shitty televisions, before the notions of "letterbox" or "widescreen" or surround sound were invented. Did they not enjoy those movies as well? Did they not learn the art of storytelling?

And acoustic live. "Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand things with alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures." Screwhead.

I grew up watching boxy tvs, and suffered thru countless pan-and-scan shit. Every 'classic' movie of my childhood that I've watched now, on my current system has made me lament over the shit i had to grow up watching. I just didn't know better back then. so... if Conan the Barbarian is on TV, and my only option is a crappy TV, I won't watch it. I'd wait until i get home and watch it on my good system. Does that make sense?

Of course it does. Fuck, I don't even have cable/broadcast TV and only watch movies on DVD. I didn't watch "Stalker" when I rented it because it was pan and scan.

But part of the magic of film is the story, no? And you can pick that up watching any tele. Would you go back into your past and not watch those movies you grew up watching?

Totally off topic Wins, but I found this KICKASS book called THE EMPEROR AND THE WOLF, an 800 (!) page biography about the 18 year friendship of Kurosawa and Mifune. It's out of print but I scored at my local Half-Price Books. 150 of those pages are pictures.

It's fuckin' sweet.

yes, a truely good movie is more than what you see on a screen, but I am now spoiled by better boradcasting and DVDs and high-def stuff, and i can never go back! you can't make me! if a nuclear holocost happened tommorrow, I'd be more worried about how to generate power for my home theater than where i was going to get potable water.

I understand what you're saying Dino, in that certain movies ought to be seen on the big screen, and in a perfect world, that would be the only way to view such movies. It's not a perfect world however. For instance, I live in a pretty small town, (aprox. 1000 people). The closest theatre is about 45 minutes to an hour away, and plays the average mainstream movies of the day; they won't be showing Lawerance of Arabia in the near future. If I want any sort of specialty theatre, it's 2 to 2 1/2 hours drive time, (minimum), not to mention gas. As much as I love movies, they aren't that high on my priority list. With a wife going to law school and a baby on the way, a mondo home theatre system isn't going to be sitting in my living room for quite some time. Under these circumstances, are you saying for me to avoid seeing L of A, (I have not seen it) in the hopes that someday the conditions will provide for the optimal viewing experiance. Doesn't it make more sense to view it when the oppotunity presents itself. At least then, if I get hit by a runaway javelina in this Mayberry of middle Arizona, I can die peacefully knowing that at least I had seen Lawerance of Arabia.

So basically I'm saying that I don't have the means to hang out in you private winery, so for the time being I'll settle for crappy American beer.
