A combination of the funeral of a family friend who died young and suddenly and the funeral of my Aunt who died tragically in a car accident a few months later. I can't choose one over the other. That was a rough year. ...

I was in my office on campus at UA. All of the sudden a student pops in and tells my officemate and I that we need to GTF out and get to a safe place because there was risk of a tornado. We huddled down in a safe place in the bottom floor. Someone had a laptop and was streaming coverage of the weath...

Watched this for the first time tonight because of this thread. Such powerful themes of being far from home but wanting to go back to where you were happiest. Call going back to Lonesome Dove and remembering his friends was just brutally heartbreaking. Made me want to call everyone I know....

| Movie/TV Board|| re: Greatest opening scene? - Dodgson on 12/1/14 at 6:03 pm|
A lot of good ones in this thread. I saw a mention of The Godfather and I have to say that Bonasera's opening monologue is stunning in how it conveys the tone of the movie and the values of the family without even having seen any of the major characters yet:

I was about to say that this was the one of the roles that most suited him. The thing with Bakula is that the more acting he does, the more 'clueless' he looks ([link=(http://subspacecomms.com/sites/default/files/0413-general/scott...
