|Jun-01-09|| ||kevin86: In effect,this was a real match in exile between two disposed-of war horses. The players and the country were a perfect "match for one another.|
Like the joke about the guy who bought a Yugo-it soon broke into seven pieces and became a Croat,a Bosnian,etc...
|Jun-01-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: The other detail about this match is that the entire world watched it.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||chillowack: <But I found the movie rather dull and predictable. Heartless psycho on the loose, and in the end the good guy wins, *yawn*.>|
One wonders if Sneaky even saw the movie.
|Jun-01-09|| ||DLev: The game title is not a pun, and it refers to the entire match, not just this specific game. It does not deserve such a high score in the pun contest.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||HeMateMe: I think the psycho walked, Javier Barden. His last evil deed was killing the sherrifs wife, a Scottish lass adopting an american accent for the film. He is never captured. AND he lives with Penelope Cruz!|
Life aint fair.....
|Jun-01-09|| ||moi: yup, what would be the problem if 37...Nb7 pls?|
|Jun-01-09|| ||WannaBe: If this is number 10, I can't wait for number 1!!|
|Jun-01-09|| ||wanabe2000: Tommy Lee Jones is great in the movie, however, to really understand the pun one must read Cormac McCarthy's novel about generational differences. McCarthy is one of my favorite writers. BTW the game was great play by two old men.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||weisyschwarz: <blacksburg: am i the only person in the world that didn't like that movie?
<anti-climactic> is the best term i can think of to describe it. my GF and i walked out of the theatre saying <that was the dumbest ending ever>.>|
Actually, <Fargo> was worse.
|Jun-01-09|| ||square dance: people who dont like non-typical endings like that in No Country, or the Blair Witch Project have dull taste in films. i like it when the occasion movie doesnt spoon feed me the hollywood happy ending. the worst thing a story teller can do is not leave anything up to your imagination. unless of course you dont have one. but that is what michael bay is for.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||Yodaman: Great movie, great game.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: It is a great game. Spassky's exchange sac here was profound.|
|Jun-01-09|| ||Jim Bartle: <my GF and i walked out of the theatre saying that was the dumbest ending ever>.|
I bought a DVD of "No Country for Old Men," and actually took it back to the dealer, saying it was incomplete, that the ending was missing.
|Jun-01-09|| ||Calli: Good joke, but where is the pun?|
|Jun-01-09|| ||VaselineTopLove: I would have liked this pun had Spassky not been old himself.|
|Jun-02-09|| ||Imposter: <the worst thing a story teller can do is not leave anything up to your imagination.>|
Guillermo del Toro's Spanish films are great for ambiguous and interesting endings. Two that spring to mind are Pan's Labyrinth (was the girl fantasizing or not and does it matter etc), and The Orphanage (ditto as a ghost story and how strong is the power of a mother's love).
Hellboy 2 seems more like a money making scheme to fund his more serious projects.
And just to stay on topic, this game was classic, or should I say vintage, Spassky.
|Jun-03-09|| ||blacksburg: <people who dont like non-typical endings like that in No Country, or the Blair Witch Project have dull taste in films.>|
that's like saying <people who don't like what i like have bad taste>.
i'm all for a good non-typical ending. i hate cookie-cutter spoon-fed endings as much as the next guy. but <No Country> ended, and then there was another hour of pointless drivel.
|Jun-08-09|| ||square dance: <that's like saying <people who don't like what i like have bad taste>.> only if you misinterpret it that way. |
A) i didnt mean those two movies specifically.
B) i think its a fair and valid opinion to say that people who dont like something a little different from time to time have dull taste in anything.
conversely, i only ever have ketchup on my hamburgers.
|Mar-18-11|| ||hottyboy90: Man this game is complicated, I just don't know where these guys come up with these moves from.
If I had been playing from that position I would have looked at 20.Rxc5 as suicidal!|
|Mar-18-11|| ||fab4: Good thread this.. I loved 'No country.. ' and Xavier Bardem is a cool actor.The scene with the unravelling sweet wrapper is unforgetable.|
As for the game here.. Fischer missed things he would not have done when he was playing regularly and hungry, and younger.
Playing 19.b4.. he must've missed 20.Rc5
After this his position was difficult.. the bishop on a8 especially looking forlorn.
But RJF did speed things up.. 34..e5 is another blunder. And he just never got his rooks involved or active in this game..
Great game from Spassky. Spassky was a child wonderkind too.. a natural genius. People forget that.
|Mar-19-11|| ||hottyboy90: I tell it how I think it is without trying to sugarcoat anything. Spassky did very well in this game but had Fischer been any where near his 2785 level Spassky would't have had the opportunity!|
|Mar-19-11|| ||hottyboy90: I wish Fischer had played on after 72. Every chess fan could have learnt a whole lot more and chess could really have had more publicity had he stayed on the scene.|
|Jul-30-12|| ||HeadCrunch: Sloppy workmanship from Bobby.|
|Feb-01-16|| ||rehamk: Hello Everybody!
I am new here, i just want to know that how to know that which player is playing white and which one is on black ?
|May-04-16|| ||DarthStapler: The first name listed is always white|
