A stuffed chicken stuffed into a duck which is in turn stuffed into a turkey. And you have the option of deep frying the whole thing?!

A host of seraphim, cherubim and thrones could not be more heavenly than The Turducken.

I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

Is it a turd-ucken or tur-ducken?  It will always be one of the great mysteries of life.

I thought he was quoting Space Ghost.

The only thing of Kubrick's I've seen in A Clockwork Orange. I agree with the author of the novel who basically said something like, Kubrick took an intriguing story with a good message and turned it into a tasteless piece of pronography. Kubrick can suck a corndog.
I really do like pie.

It's pronounced "delicious"

Well now, that simply isn't true. A Clockwork Orange is an excellent film. My favorite work of Kubrick's actually.

I must point out that the author praised the film adaptation (while expressing concern over the final chapter being omitted from the film, which he attributed to the fact that Kubrick might have adapted his version from an abridged printing of the book; publishers took out the final chapter because they felt that it might have been more popular this way, and then reinstated it at the insistence of the author) before public backlash against the film from groups who misinterpreted its meaning caused him to say otherwise.

The author of A Clockwork Orange clearly has no balls. The man is a slug, and since you have clearly misunderstanded the film, you are one as well.

(And Kubrick can't suck anything - he's dead.)

care to clarify 'pornography'?

I really don't want to get involved in this conversation but that just threw me a bit.

I believe the use of the word "pornography" was in reference to the film's violent content, which was one of the things that earned it an X rating back in 1971.

That's outstanding.  I should have used that as the thesis statement in one of my film class essays.

Kubrick has made some amazing movies: 2001, Paths of Glory, Killer's Kiss, The Shining...  What I like about Kubrick is that even in his less successful films, he at least strives for excellence, which is really hard to find in most modern film-makers today.

I'm sure nobody goes out to make a bad film if that's what you're suggesting.

Well, there was that brief period when A.I. was released and he was turning in his grave.  There's still a chance.

  Did somebody say something about pie??
               I'm fond of cheesecake myself.  New York-style.  Real baked cheesecake, made with eggs. Not that atrocity of soft pudding-like cream cheese.  But pie can be good, too.
