I received a message that the player is not showing for them. Anyone out there, can you verify if the player is working or not?

If playback is stopping and starting, hit 'pause' for a moment to let the file load a bit. That should buffer the file enough to play smoothly from then on.

It's been a long time since I told you that I totally love Cinemated Man. What a great episode. I can not drink tea during the host segments as am in danger of a spit take ruining my keyboard. I agree that this was a big influence on Star Wars especially in the art direction department with the vast interiors of Krell. My favorite thing about the movie is the costumes and Walter Pidgeons swank off-world pad.

My humble post on this masterpiece:

Is this from Forbidden Planet? It sure looks like it. But no, it's The Empire Strikes Back:

Thanks Jenny.

Sorry for the late, very late reply. Like Dr. Morbeus, I must've been napping, head down on the table dreaming monsters of the ID!

Thanks for the kind words and support.

Don't forget, everyone. Visit Jenny's very impressive movie site Cinema OCD (link in sidebar).
