Patton https://youtu.be/YrtS2_TfbeYAetixintro George C Scott is amazing in this movie. I agree, buy at the end of the day, he fails to go that final step into portraying Patton as the idiot that he was. Patton wanted to press on to Moscow. The world would have been a different place if he had done ...

Every scene from both Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" and Monty Pythons "Life of Brian"

Re: Favourite movie scenes

Treat yourself. Buy the DVD. Less than two quid. The scent of a woman is great. I won't pay for that, I don't need it to feel great with myself. Well Al Pacino's hammy acting and ugly voice certainly aren't to everyone's taste. stick with Serpico, or Dog Day Afternoon. he goes from good to horrible...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

This is one of the 20thC greatest films, and arguably Kirk Douglas' and Kubrick's best. Major Dax (Kirk) has just returned from a argument with his general after an unsuccessful defence of 4 men for cowardice resulting in a firing squad. The accused has been chosen at random from a group of French ...

BTW the oldest known asteriod (via verified evidence (satilite views)) hit was a "Biggen" - 50 mile wide? - hit South Africa 3.5 billion yrs ago - huge rock to still be seen today on surface.

only germs at that time, so many/most BG algea died, then recovered.

Re: Global warming is NOT a science

It's clear that sometimes species shape the Earth at times. It's now humans. The blue-green algae definitely played a role in The Great Dying - there is no room for doubt, even if there were other factors. There was no free oxygen in the atmosphere until photosyntheisers emerged. That's how the atm...
