Still here, as well. I'm glad to see so many familiar faces still checking in from time to time. I don't check in as often as I used to, but it's great to see new people discovering and discussing this film! Thanks for keeping the site alive, Bob_San!

I'd have to agree with the consensus here. John had his reasons for doing what he did, and I don't think we should go against his wishes. Whether it was for his wife, or his personal safety, or just because he wanted to try to exercise some power over the board, shouldn't matter. John has made a few...

I don't think this is a flaw in the script. Rather, it's a reflection of who Charlotte is. She is not one who is impressed with celebrity. Her husband works as a professional photographer, has a lot of acquaintances in the business, and perhaps because of this familiarity, she is not as impressed in...

Thank you for sharing that, 52FM. I believe your wife is right. There is no need to hash out the mistakes of the past. What's done is done. The important thing is how you choose to approach each other now, in the moment. And the moment after that. The ride is a long one, but that doesn't mean you ne...

I've watched it a few times over the years. Watching Marcello pursuing an empty life of dreams over what's real and in front of him is kind of draining, but it makes you take a step back and look at how far removed you can be from yourself sometimes. I think that might have been the significance of ...

I think the only people that would get this are us,
and the person who made the trailer. Who is probably one of us.
So, who's gonna 'fess up ? :lol:

Sofia needs to direct the next Fast and the Furious.
I'd pay good money to see that film.

Hmmm i see it the other way round, I find the nods quite important even though they might have been improvised, for the simple reason Sofia decided to keep them in the final cut. My theory on why nod when it was just the two of them on the lift? Well, I think Bill wanted to highlight Bob and Charlo...

Well, I think that I can be cocky, since you're left pointing out that, for some reason or other, Mr. Murray's head didn't keep level. My goodness, John, I believe that may be the first time you've ever acknowledged that he didn't keep his head level. Maybe you're not hopeless, after all. :wink: I'...

Boy do I feel smug right now hee hee Good discussion gang Don't get too cocky there, J-dog. The nods we are referring to occur before he misses his stop. Remember...subtle. Just observe. She "ignores" the first nod, and I believe she completely misses the second, then Bob gets that "Okay, I give up...

I've been stepping back on this one, as I had a clash with JohnMonkey a very long time ago over the exact same scene (I think I elicited the dreaded "pish and tosh" response from him, that time :) ). But yes, I saw the nods, as well. And they are obvious, in a subtle kind of way (just like everythin...

Hi Bob, I see that I've posted myself right out of "WooHoo Guy" status. :cry:
With jml2's blessing, I'd also like that rank permanently.

Is there room at the top, jml2 ?

I think what would have been even cooler is if Scarlett hadn't been given a name at all. Her name is only used very infrequently, as it is. There's the phone call to Lauren, Bob's call to Charlotte, and John's introduction of her to Kelly. Does anyone else have one they can name ? Of course, it woul...
