    Oh, hey, AMC is half-assing a marathon (which is better than last year, when I'm pretty sure they just didn't show it at all?). 10AM-8PM. Good enough for 4 showings. What happened to the 24 hour marathon, damn it?

    Have you ever said to yourself, "Gee, I wonder what would happen if, instead of a wonderful and sometimes heartfelt comedy, Groundhog Day had been a shitty, made for TV, sci-fi thriller?" Then do I have a movie for you!

    You may not be able to watch Groundhog Day yet but Stargate and Amazon Prime have got you covered:
    Anyway, I'm sorry but that just happens to be how I feel about it, what do you think?

    Ghostbusters is my favorite movie but yeah this one is probably actually better. Just doesn't have the same significance in my childhood.

    oh god not again?

    I'd love to basically get a few years of repeating the same day in order to catch up on my reading and learn a bunch of new talents.

    Especially now a days where I'd have access to the internet and iPads and what not. Though even early-90s Punxsutawney would probably provide enough to occupy myself for five years (which I believe was the stated behind-the-scenes amount of time that Bill Murray spent repeating that day).

    ten years, I think, was the estimated time it'd take to get that good at the piano

    I think the original script had him there for a few thousand though

    also thread I am writing a movie that is basically Frozen crossed with Live, Die, Repeat where two siblings in fake Victorian England travel back in time over and over to try and save their parents from their inevitable Disney death

    it is

    the best idea I have ever had

    edited February 2015
    From Wikipedia:
    Reports regarding how long Phil is trapped in the time loop vary widely. Ramis stated in the DVD commentary that he believes 10 years pass. However, in an e-mail response sent to Heeb magazine, Ramis said, "I think the 10-year estimate is too short. It takes at least 10 years to get good at anything, and allotting for the down time and misguided years he spent, it had to be more like 30 or 40 years."

    According to Stephen Tobolowsky, Ramis told him that the entire progress of Groundhog Day covered 10,000 years. "I always thought that there were nine days represented [in the film], and Danny Rubin, the writer, said that he felt something like 23 days were represented in the movie, [but they lasted] over 10,000 years."

    The first time I read the 10,000-year interpretation, it put the character's whole experience into a much different (more terrifying) light.

    Today is a good day! I'm at work, testing returned cable boxes in the warehouse, and so long as I time swapping new boxes to commercial breaks, I can just watch the AMC marathon. Especially since AMC is one of our problem channels, where the upstream provider has frequent technical issues, so monitoring it is actually legit.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan
