    Watching films from the '70s requires such a specific mindset. The pacing, cinematography, and storytelling are so different from movies today, that it can be jarring. There are a dozen or more movies from that era that I can't wait to share with my son when he gets older (e.g., The Godfather I & II), but I'm not certain that they'll have the same impact for him that they did for me.

    "Turning the two major north-south corridors into two-way streets is meant to slow traffic…" That's brilliant city planning. I drive downtown every single weekday, and every day I think, "Man, traffic really needs to slow down."

    Regarding Ben Carson (and Trump, for that matter) every time I see either of them step in a big steaming pile of stupid, I'm reminded of the old SNL bit where Jon Lovitz is playing Mike Dukakis, and is incredulous that he's losing to Papa Bush. I can only imagine Jeb, Rubio et al sitting there going "I can't believe I'm losing to this guy???"

    My vote for worst Book to Movie conversion is Starship Troopers. It is one of my favorite books of all time… where the action sequences really are secondary to the rest of the story. The movie? meh. It turned into a cheesy space war movie.

    My vote for best Book to Movie conversion? Where Eagles Dare by Alistair Maclean.

    Harder tests? SMH

    The book was better than the movie Cuckcoo's Nest. Nurse Ratched is hella worse in the book.
    But I did enjoy the movie, and have seen it a few times.

    Looking at the helmets you displayed above- to all who say how great Baylor and TCU are. They each would have at least (by today's standards) three or four loses in just conference play.
