"of course this was before..
1. cell phones
2.cgi
3. the Internet "

hey buddy , if a film was made in the Thirties we know there was no cgi sfx
and pal, if you were protestin' the vietnam war, we know you didn't have the use of the Internet to organize protests
and dummy, if you were lost in the wilderness on a hiking trip in the seventies we know didn't have a cell phone to call for help


sheeesh!

The haughty American use of the word 'sir' to emphasise a point. Whenever I hear it I imagine some overdressed plonker from Gone With The Wind with his thumbs in his side pockets.

YEAH! Does anyone today know which side of a tree the moss grows on and how that might save you if you are lost in the forest?

Do any of you hepcats know what "My bad" means? Is it the middle of a sentence like "That was my bad mistake". Or " That was due to my bad judgement".
Honestly, I have no idea what this means.

Refering to something as a "HOLY GRAIL".

Does anyone really know what they are saying? It's over used too.

Yeah, but if it's hung it'll probably collapse within two years and we'll be having another one! Hurrah!

Co-conspirator. Since it takes at least two people to have a conspiracy, it's redundant to put the prefix "co" in front of conspirator. But we could fill a whole new thread with frequently misused words.

Another (phonetic) redundency:

"off of"--
'take it off of me" frown



"in glorious mono"

No need to dress it up like it's going to the prom. It's mono. Better than nothing, but still mono.


Similarly: "in glorious Quicktime"
razz


Plus, from DVD reviews, now Blu-Ray (which ought to be "Blue Ray", of course) reviews:
the movie has never looked better!
Apart from some unaccountable failures, a movie is bound to look better than before with each new technology; of course it looked better on dVD than on VHS, and of course it looks better on Blu-Ray than on DVD, and of course it looks better when re-scanned from cleaned up original negatives at twice the necessary resolution and restored with the nbest newest tools!

"there are no second acts in Amercian life"

"journalists ' use this all the time.
not only is it always used incorrectly i.e. no relation to the topic at hand
but
these writers never read Fitzgerald in their life ; guaranteed!
