Re: Favorite Film Clips - The Indianapolis Speech - Jaws (1975) HD

The best movie about climate change ever. It's completely unintentional, and I'm probably stretching it a bit, but all the metaphors are there.

There's Jaws, the climate monster - deadly to even go near it, so something has to be done about it. His dorsal fin is a cartilaginous Seneca cliff. You've got the mayor - the elite in total denial, and wanting everyone else to be in denial so they can carry on being the elite for a while longer. Dreyfuss represents the climate science community. He's got all the data and he knows what's coming, but the other two men in the boat look at him skeptically and with mistrust - like he'd go missing when the going got tough.

Then you've got Schneider - he's the everyman, who's just looking out for his family; wants his kids to be able to swim in the sea without it eating them. It's his responsibility to bring Jaws in, but the other two look at him like an amateur, who's just doing it for the man, the elite. Finally you've got Shaw representing the drillers, the industrial job hunters. They don't think about anything, except satisfying their lust and quelling their paranoia. The other two look at each other as if to say, "He's gotta go." Oh, and don't forget the chalk board, that Shaw screeches his fingernails down, just so someone pays him some attention - that'll be the internet.

Hi Joseph, Interesting viewpoint, liked your idea on the mayor best.

Always viewed Shaw as a modern day Captain Ahab, whatever, it was a real good movie.

 This 42 seconds of video was made by a Vancouver, BC news anchor.

She first showed it at the closing of the news one day and it has since gone viral

Re: Favorite Film Clips --- Do They Show This Commercial on TV?

I haven't watched TV much for a long time, and I have no idea of the present state of the art in TV advertising. The last thing I remember that made me scratch my head was those ads for blue jeans that didn't actually have anything to do with blue jeans.

I clicked on a video link just now and got this beauty of a commercial. I just have to admire the guts of whomever pitched this to the sponsor.  I suppose you've all seen this?

News to me. But this is a web video, not a commercial; nobody can schedule media that runs 2:14.
Interested, I found they have a channel of such videos:

The writers sure had a fun time.

I have to admit I've never actually watched the movie "A Bronx Tale". But in my web searches for scenes of gratuitous violence and mafioso machismo, I keep stumbling across these impressive scenes.

 I ran across the "I'm from Jersey" clip first, but then I saw this one. That movie deserved a special Oscar for fight scenes. I really have to watch the whole thing.

Hmm, I tried to post a link, but they don't like that either. No more free advertising from me. Screw 'em.

I was gonna watch the link, too. Looks promising, but never saw it either.

Worth a watch, just search Bronx Tale bar fight scene on utoob.

I watched that clip and didn't find it the least bit believable.

First off, I can't believe not one guy on either side had a gun.  Next I don't buy that he could get 10 old fat guys in suits with baseball bats coming through the back door inside of 2 minutes. They didn't even have cell phones back then! Next all those old fat guys have to be used to busting heads in bar fights.  Next I don't believe all the Bikers would just stand there dumbfounded while he locks the door.  Somebody is going to jump him at that point.  Next, the way the old fat guys in suits were swinging the baseball bats at their heads they would not have been beat up, they would have been DEAD.  Next, I don't think the Bikers would have gone in there to create mayhem unarmed with something, if not guns then knives and bike chains.  Next, if they were left alive, I don't believe they wouldn't have come back later to take revenge, either with another 10 Hell's Angels Clubs alongside or at least set fire to the bar one night.

Mafiosos are used to violence no doubt, but I can't see them putting themselves at risk in a bar fight of this type, when they could have just sent in 2 guys with machine guns first to keep the Bikers from moving and then beat the shit out of each of them one at a time, with nobody getting his suit messed up.

All in all, one of the least believable bar fights with bikers I ever saw, even less believable than the Bar Fight in Terminator


At least there you buy in to the idea you can have an invulnerable robot from the get go.  Old Fat Guys in Suits are not invulnerable, even if they work for La Cosa Nostra.
