      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I've noticed more films being remade like War of the Worlds, Longest Yard, Star Trek, Day Earth stood still, and so on. Any opinions if the remakes are any better or worse than the original? What about movies that haven't been remade that should be attempted? I was watching Smokey and the Bandit that made me think which actors could play the characters to do a remake of that movie. Hard to replace Burt Reynolds, or Jackie Gleason. They seemed perfect for their character.

Some are good, some shoulda been left alone.

Dukes of Hazzard was horrible and should have never been done that way.

Didn't they do Land Of The Lost? I'm curious to see how that turned out.

I don't think land of lost has come out yet.

I like horror movies, I thought the remakes and then prequel of texas chainsaw massacre were good. The recently redone Friday the 13th was cool mostly because Jason was more intense instead of a hapless dude in a hockey mask going around the camp.

But I am with Sandman too, others are just to better off left alone. I could here bands do cover of Floyd songs but never the same

Isn't this with Will Ferrell? I am not a big fan of his movies so I'll wait to hear peoples reviews once it comes out.

Dukes of Hazzard was named worst movie of the year the year it came out by Ebert and Roeper. They blasted it, and also blasted the show.

I am a HUGE CHiPs fan from my youth (have Seasons 1&2 on DVD) and they are supposed to put a movie out this year with Wilmer Valderamma as Ponch. I am very skeptical about it. He does remind me of Ponch, but I think they are going to turn it into a slapstick and ruin it

I do believe Land of the Lost is with Will Ferrell. I too am a HUGE fan of horror movies. I liked Friday The 13th a LOT. Jason is just a new kind of monster in it. I liked Halloween(2007)quite a bit also, and am excited to see H2(Unlike a lot of people, I like Rob Zombie's movies). Agree on Dukes...Wasted a good chance to make a pretty cool movie. I have also heard something about Chips. I wasted 10 minutes of my life watching War Of The Worlds 2. It is staring C. Thomas Howell. HORRIBLE.

I actually have not seen the new Hitcher yet(well not the full movie yet, only the beginning). And yes he is...Sadly! His crowning day was in The Outsiders(which now that I think about it, I would love to see this movie remade also!). WOTW2 was horrible in every aspect. Very bad CG, and worse acting. I literally watched about 10 minutes of it and turned it off. Good thing I rented it, or I would of threw it out to the burn pit! I also believe he may of been in a Starship Troopers sequel also.

Sad thing is they all seem to be "B" movies. He was a great actor and was in some great movies back in the 80s.

I just did a search on imdb and CHiPs has been pushed back to a 2011 release, and when you look up Wilmer Valderamma it doesn't show that he is even working on it. Hopefully it gets scrapped, don't want to see them ruin it

heard a new Slap Shot is coming to a theater near you. That is one that cannot be redone. Like so many classic movies the actors and writers made the characters. Are the Hansons going to pull out an Xbox instead of toy cars. Heck a lot of adults now wouldnt find that as funny. Most classic movies are clasic because of the combo of people and times that went into the original. Try to redo a Duke film, youll never get anyone who can pull off the characters he portrayed like he did. Can anyone do the MacKenzie brothers like those two Hosers. Also so many movies where made for and in a time that we no longer live in and the new remakes are made to be picture perfect in place of acting, dialogue, and directing. It is more about cinematography and special effects.

Wow, footloose, really? How bad are they going to mess that up. You wanna put money on it being hip hop and nothing like the original?

Kinda makes you wonder why writers can't come up with an original movie. Seems like there are more each year being remade. If it's not a remake, then the movie is another sequel. Like all the horror movies.

from Wiki:


Paramount Pictures has announced plans to fast-track a remake of Footloose, with plans to start filming in the Spring of 2009. Zac Efron was cast as Ren in the new movie,[4] but he later dropped out, reportedly saying that he wanted to take a break from musicals.[5] Kenny Ortega is announced as director, with Peter Sollett re-writing the script and Dylan Sellers, producer of The Replacements, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron as co-producers.[6] It will be filmed in Utah, like the original. It has been reported that Chace Crawford, of Gossip Girl fame, has screen tested for Kevin Bacon's role of Ren. Derek Hough, of Dancing with the Stars fame, is also rumored to be a front-runner for the role of Ren. Hough played Ren in the musical version of Footloose on stage in London

    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
    • Can’t really say I’m disappointed in their performance. I was expecting a blowout sweep.   my dream scenario is, trade Wiggins and 1st round pick(s) to Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. Then offer LeBron James a blank check. Let him fill in the numbers.
    •     Guys, we need a name.  This is the only idea so far.  Unless anyone has something else to say, I'll make the switch later today.  Once that's done, I'll tell my story and submit my entry.
    • I watched the first half of that game, sheez, do the rockets ever miss any 3's!!
    • I think you guys are spot on about the 3's. If you look at the stats vs Houston in the playoff. The Wolves had a better FG% and also had more rebounds. Turnovers and FT's were about even. Houston simply put up and made more 3's and that was the difference.
    • I've always been a fan of launching as many three's as possible. It's a numbers game, making 40% of your three's is like shooting 60% from two point range points wise.   The Warrior's and Rocket's have shown what that type of game plan can lead to. It's the way the NBA is trending.   So we need guys that can hit from the outside. Honestly, we need guys that don't miss those three foot gimme's either.   I expected to be swept, and they played OKAY in the playoffs, but they need to step up things next year if they want compete at the highest level.
    • I wouldn't expect much out of Brown's creek.   Vermillion is tough to fish.  Really tough.  But I helped volunteer with a DNR electrofishing survey there and there are some unbelievable trout in there.    Also netted a monster northern that I'm not even sure how it even turned around in the section we found it in.  
    • Last off season I was so hoping that the Wolves would have landed JJ Reddick but he chose 76er's...what the Wolves needed was a solid quick shooting 3 point guy and I really think that ended up being their shortfall.  It was a good season and hope that Wiggins either gets traded or finds that fire in the belly to become a dominant scorer and on ball defender night in and night out!!!  I really think he has the potential/talent but just don't think he has the will or determination to work that hard.
