Roberts Reveals His Favorite Movies
2 hours, 22 minutes ago
After two days of intense legal questioning, Supreme Court nominee John Roberts finally addressed a subject most Americans could relate to: His favorite movies are "Doctor Zhivago" and "North by Northwest."
Frustrated by Roberts' answers, Sen. Charles Schumer (news, bio, voting record), D-N.Y., suggested on Wednesday that if he dared to ask the nominee his favorite films, he would get a discussion of cinematography and why "Casablanca" is considered one of the greatest.
Instead, Roberts answered flat out, bringing laughter from the audience and senators alike.
"North by Northwest," Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic

True. Those two should have been on the list. RIP Dean Wormer. Since this posting seems to be a combination of movie recommendations and Chuckie Schumer insults, perhaps Chuckie (or maybe Ted Kennedy) should listen to the sage advice of Dean Wormer; "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life son."
You were just getting to the good part.
Who do you all think is the sleeziest, Beiden, or Kennedy?
Personally I have to say Beiden, Hugh Hewitt said that a long time ago Cuomo from NY, called Beiden the dumb blond of the senate. Hewitt just calls him Slow Joe. I cannot stand him, he comes off with that smile then he stabs you,
Lifeguard Kennedy is just putzy.
Oh poo, I can get all hoity-toity too, but if you were stuck on a desert island, you'd pick a gutter humor movie, too.
Great escapism! LOL
And that moron look isn't just skin deep either.
The Dirty Harry series with Clint Eastwood, The Death Wish Series with Charles Bronson and one that would hopefully cause Chuck the schmuck Schumer to drop over dead, "Waco".
Sorry, but I'm a married woman - LOL
Seriously, though, it was a fun movie! Even w/ the bad ending.
(And the first time I was Holy Grail was in Jume of 1975 at drive-in w/ a guy named Steve. Ick, I spent that summer dating him. Boy, I was stupid back them!!)
Very apt description!!!!!!!!!
Any man who loves Hitch's movies is a man who has a good head on his shoulders and Roberts stands heads and shoulders above his inquisitors.
And be aware that understanding Hitchcock means knowing the rules of his film techniques among which is that policemen and politicians are usually the bumbling fools.
I wonder if Roberts knows this and naming a Hitchcock film was a back door way of slamming these fools.
Ah, that was a great movie. They never came out and said what Brig's problem was. You had to be a sophisticated adult to get it. Today's movies have no subtlety.
Should have played with Schumer by saying 'Fahrenheit 9/11'. And loves watching 'West Wing' with his family.
A Lion in Winter
Sheesh, this is too easy
His lack of intelligence is downright stunning. It is a good thing, however, that he's not on this particular committee. 4 brain-dead Senators would be just too much.
OMG I could never sit through more than a minute of that hideous movie
