    Nice!
    My next door neighbor had one when I was a kid.

    "Hooper" cheers me up, too.

    He said it was the best of his work. Douglas made so many great movies. Spartacus, Champion, Young Man With a Horn, Gunfight..., Adrian Messenger, Lust for Life, Paths of Glory, Ace in the Hole. And what kid didn't love 20k Leagues?

    I'd never heard of it before an English teacher (in college) played it for us in class - wonderful movie. I may have to watch it again.

    it's called Lakewood raceway. I just thought of it. I'm sure the Psalmist could tell us some stories of it if he were still here. Eh, someday.

    La La Land: imagine Gene Kelly has a decent idea for a musical and sketches it out on a table cloth. Then he gives the table cloth to understudies to do a rough cut.

    I recently watched Gangs of New York. I found it decent. It was another historical fiction movie. Like Braveheart and Gladiator, where they take real events and put their story in that back drop. Another good movie from Leo. The strange part is, the one that put him on the map is his worst. And it goes without saying the title of that film.

    Blood Diamond and The Departed were both good with him in it.

    Gangs and BD

    the Departed is one i watch frequently - my favorite line is wahlberg's: "I'm the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy"

    Good to hear. I started reading a few critics and got irked by comments like, "Shot for shot, line and line, it's an extravagant and witty follow-up, made with the same friendly virtuosic dazzle. Yet this time you can sense just how hard the series' wizard of a director, James Gunn, is working to entertain you."

    That's from Variety and much of what I read that is complaint sound a bit like that. Well, the jaded narrative of the ennui driven critic is about as interesting as root canal to me. Every movie should be approached and examined on its merits.

    I am in. If you didn't see the original with Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer, you might need to see it. I'm not sure yet. Good movies don't require you to know a back story.

    Saw We Were Soldiers last weekend. Excellent film.
    Not a single cluster of living fruit was, or ever will be, harvested from the tree of legality. Law can only produce “dead works,” from which we need to have conscience purged just as much as from “wicked works.”

    I dunno...if they try playing it that Deckard isn't a skin job, I'll be disappointed.

    One of Mel's better efforts. Sam Elliot is terrific in it as well. One of the guys on the cover of the book the movie was made from died in the 911 attack on the towers. His name was Rick Rascorla and he headed security for Morgan Stanley and went back in to make sure all of his people were out. My brother said he was a great guy.
