The Ice Harvest is fantastic, especially Oliver Platt's performance. Amazing that he didn't make a career of dark comic thrillers. RIP.


22 days after Groundhog Day (2/2)... Reminds me of how Kubrick happened to pass 666 days before the year 2001.

The Siren

That comedy he's talking about, Stuart Saves His Family, is excellent. I've spent years trying to get people to watch it. Extremely funny for anybody who's been through any version of all that, but yes, it has some parts that probably dismay people who think comedy is mindless fluff. RIP.


Total agreement with the Siren here. And even if you haven't gone through similar personal turmoil, STUART SAVES HIS FAMILY plays as a weird mirror image to GROUNDHOG DAY -- it's about what happens when people try to maintain their emotional equilibrium in the face of mounting dysfunction. The definition of insanity, and all that.


The ice harvest is in my top 10 movies.


The fact that SCTV is not available for streaming is a Crime Against Humanity that deserves to be referred to the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

As a teen, I thought SCTV was the single most brilliant thing. Especially the early, funny seasons. I'd REALLY like to rewatch without having to get involved with physical media.

Tor H Tor

Harold, owes me for "Stripes." He'd do ANYTHING to get outta payin'-up ...or down, for that matter.


The ending to Ice Harvest is positively Wilder-esque.
