Agreed. :banghead:

A little to much J.T.S. Brown, I suppose. Classic Greek tragedy, set in a poolroom. What a flick.

Very nice. I saw an interview a while back. Apparently he pretty much grew up in pool halls.

Newman had to practice for weeks before shooting the film, and he was fairly accomplished at pool IIRC. Jackie just walked in, picked up a cue, and went to work.

Damn pity a chunk of the world only knows him as Sherrif Buford T. Justice. Ralph who? :banghead:

Well, time to take out the DVD and pop it in the player. :D

That is a shame. I may watch that when I get off work tonight. Great film.

But I've seen that interview, as well. Although, I remember that Newman was a bit of a natural. Also, Tom Cruise was a natural when he started learning for The Color of Money.

In the same vein, Michael J. Fox did his own skateboarding in Back to the Future.

There's a lot wrong with Troy. Granted, not as bas as Alexander, but Troy was awful. I was paid to see it when I was a film reviewer... if I could have had my time back, I would have GLADLY given the money back.

The only good things about Troy were Peter O'Toole and Brian Cox. Sadly, both were under-utilized.

I don't buy that. You never worked as a film reviewer in Warrensburg, you went and saw it at the crappy old walmart like the rest of us...

I reviewed for the local rag for six years before I moved.

Alas, I'm no longer a reviewer and don't get previews anymore... that quite literally is the ONLY thing I miss about working for that paper.

Star-Journal. Most Friday editions until I left nearly 2 years ago.

EDIT: Actually, I hadn't reviewed for about 6 months before I left... I got a "promotion" to be the sports editor.

The Free Press was garbage, if you ask me.

I worked for a while trying to freelance with DigitalBurg before it went under (which is now run by students at UCM), but the publisher never had enough money to pay me.

I didn't know digital burg was back up and running (UCM kids or not) I'll have to book mark it.

I had several friends at Star Journal that could not stand the old lady that ran the place and the fact she refused to do anything to modernize the paper.

The biggest issue with the Free Press was that Matt had to rely on free labor and he didn't have enough time being the editor in Lees Summit and all. His paper could have easily buried the Star Journal if he would have actually made any money to support himself and his family.

I remember when you left. At the time you and I were the only ones on the board who claimed to still be living in that shithole. Now we've both moved on :-)

Well... not to argue, but "woulda coulda shoulda"... if he wasn't making any money running the free press, there was a reason.

Yeah, DSJ had a ton of problems and the publisher is a major part of it... I argued the entire six years I was there that they needed a website and they STILL don't have one... tons of problems, yeah.

Wouldn't have buried DSJ. No way. You have a traditional press vs. alternative press. While the alt. press would have carved out a nice little niche, it would never have buried the Star Journal. Especially since most of the writing was garbage.

But the publisher... yeah, she has more money than God.

I just realized that I still have a serious issue typing UCM... I've got two degrees on my wall that say CMSU.

After reading this last post, I stepped back and remembered who reads the paper in 'da Burg and you're right, Matt would have never usurped the DSJ.

It was us alternative college types that read the FP every week. I will tell you that as a DJ at Fitters and as the manager at Doc's my ad money went a hell of a lot farther in the FP :D

It all boils down to that town being a strange read / demo

and it doesn't really matter, neither of us are there anymore anyway :D

If you were DJ at Fitters and had interest in Doc's, yeah you're money would be MUCH better spent in the FP. But the people that buy at Farm & Home and Parkers and Bi-Lo read DSJ.

I have a difficult typing UCM, too. I have to think about it. My degree (not to mention hundreds of articles written over the years) have me trained to type CMSU.
