Barbie
Barbie - Margot Robbie
Ken - Ryan Gosling :lol: saw pic on TMZ today
I cannot pass on this hard enough.
Yeah, Andrew Garfield would've made a much better Ken.
I dunno. Depends on how a realistic a match they want. Maybe Alfie Allen in character as TG.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

That pic just popped up on my Google News feed. Nothing against Gosling, but, as a collector of vintage Barbie, I believe any Ken should look like Dwayne Hickman.

gotta wonder if the movie will feature a surprise appearance by GI Joe, and who should play him?

My Whitburns have been indispensable possessions for decades.

But odd that I always had trouble remembering his name, and would invariably come up with "Halliwell"...... Halliwell actually being the long time author of film guides.
Long before the Internet Movie Database came into being, I used to spend hours perusing Halliwell's Film Guide, as well as Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide and David Thomson's Biographical Dictionary of Film.

Ditto. In the IMDb era, Halliwell's and the like are a lot less relevant from a research standpoint, but are still valuable as interesting reading material. OTOH, nothing else available, for pay or otherwise, can compare to a Whitburn for research. Further, I have a pdf of the rock era singles catalog, which, with a modicum of search effort, can answer all sorts of questions about singles and performers who charted on Billboard, e.g. Name every charted 1960s single that had a day of week in its title. (Those who know me, know that I'm into those kind of things.)

For those wondering, this is the continuation of a conversation on the 2022 RIP thread.

Absolutely. We have a couple different editions of Halliwell's that are so well-loved that we have to pray their spines stay intact every time we reach for them.

My vote is just get the '20'. You're still getting a tattoo, don't make it something you'll regert.
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

To me, the most compelling question this presents is: Is it Lame or La-mé? And I still don't know the answer... ;)

I just clicked on the link. I actually know who this person is, and have watched and enjoyed some of his videos.
