  • Very busy weekend coming, hanging out with not one, not two, but three groups of friends.  No doubt this tarnishes my hard earned reputation as a crazed recluse.  Aiming for late Friday night/early Saturday morning for the Stooge review and Sunday morning for Laurel and Hardy, but ultimately they will happen when they happen.  For you Stooge fans not checking out the Laurel and Hardy reviews, it's a Stooge history lesson this week, as THE LAUREL-HARDY MURDER CASE is the original IF A BODY MEETS A BODY.  Check it out, but not before watching last week's HOG WILD, a genuine masterpiece.

    No worries Metal--I don't think I have much to add about this week's stooge short anyway. What I'm really looking forward to is next week when--dare I say--we enter what I would call the "Golden Age" of Shemp shorts.....

     :)
    Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

  • The BE BIG! review has been edited in.  Looking forward to possible counter opinions, and even you souls who agree.

  • Well, a streak is about to end.  I plan on taking a week off from reviewing.  I've been doing this non stop for years, am going through some personal stuff, and just need a week off.  Planning to come back refreshed a week from this Monday with the next Laurel and Hardy short and then starting in 1952 for the Stooges.

  • The Laurel and Hardy HELPMATES review has been edited in.  Do yourself a favor if you haven't followed the Laurel and Hardy stuff.  Click on the link below, watch the link I provided above the review, and enjoy.  An all-time classic.

  • LISTEN, JUDGE review now up; and CORNY CASANOVAS will definitely be the day after Christmas, meaning Saturday, so don't expect the review page before then.  I think most of us, myself included, will be busy this Friday.

  • Hi Metaldams, how come I can't look at the older posts? The board only goes to four pages, so I can't read the previous shorts.

    There are four pages worth of reviews, nothing more than that.  They're all there.  Was there one you were looking for you couldn't find?

    No need to apologize, I'm just thrilled people such as yourself are referencing old threads.

  • First off, next Stooge review a few hours after I type this.

    Secondly, my apologies to those who are into it, but I am now going to stop the Laurel and Hardy reviews.  It's a combination of two reviews a week being a bit much and the response to the Laurel and Hardy reviews have been minimal as of late.  I'm glad Paul Payne became a fan and thanks to those who read and those who posted, but my energies will be strictly Stooges as far as reviews go.

    When THE MUSIC BOX can't get a discussion, it's time to pack it in...and thanks. Doing one review a week now, the energy levels should be higher.

  • As a mostly-lurker, I really enjoyed your L&H reviews while they lasted anyway.  I'd hoped to participate more frequently but started falling behind on my weekly L&H viewing because I'm terrible at keeping to a schedule, even a low-commitment schedule like one short a week (only just now watched COME CLEAN, which you reviewed weeks ago).

  • On a personal level, I'm now watching Laurel and Hardy films in order back to back instead of once a week.  It's been a marathon this weekend, probably watching seven or eight shorts and one feature....and the weekend's not through.

  • Must be liberating to cut loose on them without having to regulate your viewing for a weekly review. 

    The weekly discussions set me on course to watch L&H in order again myself, but in opposite-of-a-marathon fashion (like one every couple weeks).  They're competing with the other in-order viewing projects I have going on - MST3K, Rockford Files, Kolchak (really keeping my finger on the pulse of the modern TV landscape, clearly) - not to mention Neflix and TCM stuff.

  • Time sure does fly, don't it? Seems like just yesterday, the weekly discussions started with Woman Haters.

    I've never attempted to ever watching the stooges in chronological order, just knowing that it would not be too long before I got to "the back of Joe Palma's head" and Joe Besser. Metal, you have my sympathies in the weeks to come.

     :D
