7. They all have characters with red hair?
Considering that, for instance, David Lean's Oliver Twist (1948), was in Black and White, how would you know?
I don't. It's a guess based on the 3 (color) movies on that list I've seen. Good point though.

Same. Especially since I became a dog owner a few years ago. She spent most of last evening/night under a bed in the basement. Wouldn't come out.

Re: NCAA hockey 2019-20 season

Makes me wonder if they'll try poach one/some of the NCHC teams that are stuck at the bottom and seemingly don't have any rivals in the conference (Omaha or Miami?) Geographically (and for better rivalries), it would make the most sense for Miami/Western Michigan switch to this new league, and for ...

Re: Movies

Toy Story 4 was really disappointing. By far my least favorite of the series. It wasn’t a bad movie... but nowhere close to the last one. The 3rd movie was wonderful and it would have been the perfect ending for the series. This one just seemed like an unnecessary cash grab.

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

I'm enjoying this season and hate to nitpick, but man... I don't know how much more I can take of Sano. I know... analytics... strikeouts don't matter... blah, blah, blah. I just personally can't stand the astronomical strikeout rate. Put the ball in play and at least make the other team earn it. Of...

That Vogelbach guy on the Mariners... Good lord, he makes Astudillo look like Mr. Universe.

But you can stand Reusse? The dude can barely talk.
I know it's an unpopular opinion on this board, but yes... I do enjoy listening to Reusse.

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

Judging by their ratings I would say there isnt much of an audience for it. Maybe if SKOR had the Vikings telecasts there would be but most people will just listen to PA for their Vikings talk since he is the voice of the Vikes. Hubbard has no clue how to do anything of value in the radio market an...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

I really want SkorNorth 1500 to succeed as I don't like KFAN but 1500 is making it difficult for me to listen. Monday through Friday from 2 - 4 is a Viking talk show. To each their own (maybe I'm in the minority) but I can't imagine listening to that everyday especially during the off season. Same....

Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Twins sold out today. Man is this team good right now. Really good. Everyone (including me) should be enjoying this while it's happening. Today must be a sellout too. This morning my son asked if we could go to the game today, so I looked around for tickets. The only ones left on the official site ...

Re: Movies

I understand it's regarded as one of the greatest movies of all time, but other than finding a bunch of things that the Simpson's referenced over the years, I didn't really like Citizen Kane.
