Holy Macaroni!!!! That just made my day, actually my night, whatever. What I like is that they used another "Good Night, and Good Luck" image for the article, as a way to insist upon it. Thanks for sharing this, I would never have bumped into it.

Good article! Well done, ElMo!

By the way, my (obvious) choice is:

The Broken Circle Breakdown (2012)

It seems this site doesn't have personal messaging, and the poll I want to comment on doesn't have a thread, so I'm gonna do it here.
Your poll has recently gone live - Oscar-Snubbed scores:
http://www.imdb.com/poll/7FAfD0M1iTo
I would like to suggest the score from Conan the Barbarian (1982), composed by the legendary Basil Poledouris.
The score is brilliant from start to finish - it sets the mood, it elevates the actors' performances, and it brings the film into a whole other dimension. The only reason it wasn't nominated (other than the Saturn Award for best music and the IFMCA nomination) was because it's a film featuring '80s Arnold, chopping heads and struggling with his accent. If you've taken the same score and put it in some ''critical-darling'' film, it would have been hailed as one of the best ever.
In fact, it is my personal favorite score of all time - a true masterpiece.
(and I know the taste in music is subjective, but I dare anyone to listen to the whole ''Conan'' album, and have a negative or average review of the score - it's practically impossible)

Drevni,

Get Satisfaction does not have private messaging. That is a major reason why asked people to provide their email address to me before the IMDb message boards disappeared. Fortunately, you have my email address in case you need to contact me.

I need to exchange my (rare) Criterion Collection DVD of [link=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118694/combined]In the Mood for Love[/link] for the BluRay version.  I bet my little mind will implode because of the otherworldly beauty of the film in that format.

Apparently, it isn't.  Not sure what your copying and pasting of the poll url has to do with my attempt to text link to the movie, In the Mood for Love.  It looks like it can be done.  As exampled earlier in this thread.

Tsar,

Get Satisfaction (GS) does not require markup tags for link (URL) to be clickable.

For instance, this is the link for this thread:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/hail-caesars

I simply copied the link (URL) into the edit window and GS made clickable.

At the bottom of the edit window are these icons.


B - Bold (also Ctrl-B)
I - Italics (also Ctrl-I)
U - Underline (also Ctrl-U)
S - Strike through
Link - Add link to selected text
Camera - Insert image
Movie Camera - Insert video
Bullets - Bullet list
Numbers - Number list
Quotes - Quoted text
pre - preserve text (overrides markup)
</> - Allows you to see html code for the text.

I hope to write a tutorial on features and quirks regarding Get Satisfaction.
