re: anyone remember The Hollywood Knights? - Ace Midnight
[quote]It's been awhile since I've watched it in full, but do we know for sure they were all still in high school?[/quote] Yes - and most of the principal cast were late 20s to early 30s - I call it "Grease" syndrome, and it's okay....

re: anyone remember The Hollywood Knights? - Ace Midnight
The film had a vague resemblance to both Midnight Madness and Porky's, films made around the same time (and with at least a cult following) - as well as the somewhat earlier American Graffiti. I liked it. It had a bunch of actors who were way, way too old to be in HS, but that was the tradition ...

re: Trump considering full pardon for late boxer Jack Johnson - Ace Midnight
[quote] Now that isn’t Johnson’s fault but I likely wouldn’t have Johnson beating many of the champions that came after him.[/quote] This is almost always true, though. I mean, Louis had a skillset that would have made him dangerous (at least in his prime) against the champs through the 70s, and...

re: Trump considering full pardon for late boxer Jack Johnson - Ace Midnight
[quote]Jack Johnson is widely regarded as the greatest defensive heavyweight of all time. [/quote] Meh - Joe Louis, Archie Moore and Muhammad Ali fought in the heavyweight division. Johnson was ahead of his time, for sure, particularly the size/speed/skill/power combination that he had that...

re: Verne Troyer passed away today - Ace Midnight
[quote]Apparently it was suicide [/quote] Yeah - that's one of the big reasons they don't live very long. And I can't say I blame them - between the challenges of a world not built for them, dealing with being a kid like that, the stares as adults AND all the fricking health problems they usua...

re: Who’d be down with 1 season of a Cheers reunion? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Seems like a lot of people have forgotten just how great that show was. If you asked me what my all time favorite sitcom was, that would be in the running. [/quote] I'd say Cheers or Frasier - Frasier is my favorite television character of all time, although the spinoff ran about 2 or 3 s...

re: What TV series can boast the most impressive guest star cast? - Ace Midnight
Hard to touch Batman of the 1960s - folks were practically fighting to get on there. From a quality/duration over quantity standpoint, The Shield had some pretty impressive main "guests" - in particular Glenn Close and Forest Whitaker coming in for large numbers of episodes after winning Oscars f...

re: Siberian Husky.....what should I know before getting a pup? - Ace Midnight
Huskies are fairly headstrong/stubborn, require a lot of attention and exercise (because of their strong work drive), are kind of "one owner" dogs relative to other medium/large dogs and are really unsuited to the climate in the South....

re: 1967/68 Camaro the best US car ever built? NSFW now - Ace Midnight
[quote]Just not a fan of the lines, too flat and not enough curves IMO.[/quote] I've always had a soft spot for the later C1s - particularly '58 or '59 - not only American cars, but I think they're some of the most beautiful machines ever made by anyone. [img]https://dy98q4zwk7hnp.cloudfront.n...
