We're having a tough time here in effect deciding what we want this board to be. I think it's clear that overall it's not to be construed as a wide open almost anything goes board like the soapbox on IMDb is. Frankly, I see it more like another board I go on occasionaly that is Disney related. Not t...

I certainly can tell you are frustrated - but unfortunately you seemed to have painted with a very broad brush. I think a lot of people can find themselves within the descriptions of posters you wrote - and it seemed as though each of those types were somehow annoying or inappropriate to the this fo...

The image didn't show up so I'm not sure what picture of her you're referrign to. I never saw her outside of her X-Men role. I have to (reluctantly) admit that most of my attraction (if it really is an attraction) to actresses come from the roles I think of them in and not who they really are. So it...

A local pop culture writer in the Tribune commented on this by saying "who knew train wrecks were hot?" (referring to Lindsay Lohan). I was asked lately who my top five movie stars were in pure attraction (I took it to mean overall - physical beauty and some sort of "something".) It was tough becuas...

Well, it's certainly not a "guy" flick either. Maybe it's a "sensitive guy" flick. Somewhere on here I wrote a post a long while back where I guessed that a woman married for some number of years woudl be less likely to like this movie - and even less so if she had children. I suspect a woman like t...

I'm trying to hold back jumping in here (and obviously failed). Just some thoughts - friendship is more important than romance. Ideally, people can find both in the same person. Bob woudl not have found a satisfying romance in Charlotte due to many factors (in my opinion). And also in my opinion, a ...

Pitman - I like your analysis a lot. It's the best one I've read in favor of the notion that they get back together somehow, someway. Personally, I don't subscribe to that point of view - but I must say your treatment is compelling in that you equate it with the whole "awake" theme. I've not listene...

My take on this has always been to think of this logically - Sofia clearly meant for the whisper to be private; but the scene had to be shot with Bill Murray actually saying SOMETHING; there were many takes according to what Scarlett said in an interview; she said Bill said many things - some funny,...

I find myself unable to leave this topic because in some sense I feel responsible for it. It's a personality flaw that I'm working on and this has surprisingly made me lose some ground in that fight. In my explanation post I tried to provide enough of a summary to show that the situations you are co...

Like I said in my other post this morning - I sense an ending that I don't want. But we are guests here (in a "Hotel California" kind of way since we can't delete our accounts or our posts.) What a weird feeling I suddenly have. How foolish I was to detail so much on this board that is under the con...

As Neil Young once sang:

"A while ago somewhere
I don't know when,
I was watching
a movie with a friend.
I fell in love with the actress.
She was playing a part
that I could understand."

Except I do know when, and I was alone, and I didn't quite fall in love with her (though I was close to it).

That is a remarkable picture; may I ask where you got it from? The clarity and brightness make it look almost CGI - and yet it's too detailed and precise. I have never seen a picture of a city at night that crisp and clean - but maybe Tokyo has all American cities beat in that regard. It certainly l...

Interesting point. There have been times I wanted to delete many of my posts; I really don't know how other boards handle this. I've only participated in 3 "social" forums - though I've at times posted on technical forums or finance related websites. I think once people get past a certain part of th...

I've heard that the way the hotel is laid out, you have to take the elevator from the lobby to get to the street level. So it was possible.

The Whisper (yet again)...

OK – this has been talked to death – what more can possibly be said? Well, I’ve been thinking about this in relation to something that happened in my life – not my “Charlotte” situation, but something else. And I finally see the “reaffirming” reaction that many people had at this scene – vs. the “ki...

As much of the movie discussion is - this is speculation and projection based on the slice of life we saw. All I'm saying is that Charlotte could grow very discontent over time if the roles continue without communication (as my "sample of one" - me - did). That doesn't equate to "she shoudl divorce ...

Based on a sample of one, people with complex personalities that have submissive personalities wind up supressing themselves in favor of "pleasing" the person who is more dominant or aggressive in the relationship. After many years, the submissive person pushes his/her real personality so deep that ...

"She's a submissive personality, and I think that she would more quickly find her inner voice if she were single."

"And I still feel that Scarlett unappreciative of the wonderfulness of the LiT movie. "

Pockets - I agree with that completely, as I now view Scarlett.
