"The Paper Chase — The Law School Movie Without Reese Witherspoon — Turns 40"

Even leaving aside that I saw it on my first date with my wife of 36 years, Paper Chase (the original version) is a very terrific movie

As the film turns 40 this year (it was released in October 1973), Bloomberg Law compiled a list of the 9 Things You Don’t Know About The Paper Chase.

Sounds to me like Bloomberg is issuing a trivia challenge. Did you already know these fun facts about the dullest law movie ever?

"‘Galaxy Quest’: The Oral History"

I think Galaxy Quest is extremely entertaining. Granted, it might not be as much fun if you didn't watch a lot of Star Trek, but still . . . 

If nothing else, Sigourney Weaver in a blonde wig is cool. (And she was quoted to the effect that when she put the wig on, she could feel her IQ drop precipitously.)

"23 Famous Movies Full of Symbolism You Didn't Notice"

They're right: I didn't notice. (Though I had read about The Wizard of Oz's and The Departed's symbolism.)

Three related to movies

"11 Classic Movies That Were Originally Box-Office Bombs". Office Space and Blade Runner are pretty good.

"Five Things You Missed in Feris Bueller's Day Off". Includes the "eerily prescient" scene with Charlie Sheen.

"Watch an Actor Play Every Ethnicity Hollywood Throws His Way". Cliff Curtis has been really good in everything I've seen him in.

Come to think of it, he has played an impressive range of jerks.

Two on Ghostbusters

I agree with this: "Why 'Ghostbusters' is the most libertarian Hollywood blockbuster of all time".

I don't agree with this, but find it funny: "The Scathing Sexual Politics of ‘Ghostbusters’".

"If you hire Robert Duvall Not to Flinch, He Damn Well Won't Flinch"

I'm a fan. He tends to avoid crap

There's a great comfort in being a Robert Duvall fan in the 21st century. You know you'll never have to watch him joke about his prostate with Morgan Freeman in a movie about old guys vacationing in Las Vegas. He's never going to be a retired black-ops agent with something to prove, or a terminally ill guy with something to prove.

"Harold Ramis: Watch Seven of His Greatest Movie Scenes"

"Razzle Dazzle" shouldn't work, but it does.
