going to the special hell


First Bernie Mac, then Isaac Hayes...who's next in the trifecta?

My money's on the bartender from "The Love Boat."

another cinematographic quirk of mine

I know it's silly, but it drives me absolutely batty when I see a movie that shot a scene day-for-night with a dark blue filter over the lens, and it's still patently obvious that the sun, not the moon, is casting all the light. I realize that older films were rather limited in the technology available to them, but I would rather have had the scene shot on a soundstage than to have the false lighting that results.

Oddly enough, I find it more forgivable in black and white films than color.
