: hehe...Now, Bill, you KNOW Elaine can't strike the match...surely the Sachemess and MentorMan are tied to the same stake????? You and I will be dancing around the fire, though, shouting, "I PITY the fool who messes with our MOVIE!!" ;o)
: (NOTE: This is a JOKE!! Elaine & Rich & EVERYONE else are completely entitled to enjoy the DVD to their heart's content!! That's why there's chocolate, vanilla AND strawberry in the ice cream freezer...something for everybody. As for ME, though, I'll just have to stay here alone in the dark with my puny little THX as my punishment for refusing to accept change! I'll be condemned to watch it over and over and over! *sigh* How will I survive????)
Well............if'n we'd have to tie Rich and Lainey to the stake, then we should probably pass. Wouldn't be right. Besides, we all know Lainey would rise from the ashes and have a little bar-b-que of her own....Marcia Meatloaf, Bill burgers and gnome knockwurst.
BUT......to tear apart Bogie's lines......to so alter that classic film just to make it a "90's" compatible film? Give me a friggin break. I don't care what anybody says, that is plain, downright, lizzie borden style editing. You GOTTA have those lines in the film. You just GOTTA! Somebody needs to get real with this editing stuff. Bogie says "see ya when I see ya" instead of "here's lookin at you, kid"? It was a 40's film for crying out loud! Why dub in 90's language and slang? That makes no sense and they are a breed apart.
