Wow !!!

That photo of Fred Astaire looks so gay, but he was straight !!!

He was a great dancer and actor (an OK singer), and I miss his persona.

Maybe it's the black-and-white element, but they just seem more elegant.

I have tried to come up with a concise paragraph that puts the issue in perspective.
I dont want to know about the private life of the person who checks me out at the supermarket,takes my deposits at the bank,helps me with cat food decisions,takes my blood pressure and the list goes on.
It has never been anyone's business,its not a subject civilized decent people talk about.
It requires a level of intimacy that is in appropriate in the daily discourse of everyone's life.
Thats my story and I am sticking to it

I watched the animated film Bolt last night, which was on the Disney channel. As far as animated movies go, this has to be one of my favorites.

I also saw The Postman with Kevin Costner, which I got from Netflix. Didn't get to see all of it, but what I did see was really good.

Walked in on DW watching 'The Story of Mankind' on the movie channel. Unbelievably cheesy mashup from old clips with (also unbelievably) an all star cast. Vincent Price as the devil, Ronald Coleman, Hedy Lamarr, Agnes Moorehead, Cedrick Hardwicke, Peter Lorre, and dozens more...and get this: Harpo Marx as Sir Isaac Newton. I never knew Sir Isaac played the harp!

Flo:
Cheesy bad. Can you imagine Groucho Marx as Peter Minuet buying Manhattan from the natives for a bunch of beads? The premise is that the human race is on trial for its existence. The trouble is (besides the stock clips used as backgrounds and the cut-rate sets) was that the exhibits produced by the devil showing the bad side of humans are more interesting than those produced in its favor.

Was it made by the same company, Jen? I saw it, too, and thought it was really good. Loved the Easter Bunny. Jack Frost was great. They were all good, really. I'm always amazed at what they can do with CGI.

I did end up seeing Hotel Transylvania again. Was just as good the second time around.

Today I saw Breaking Dawn Part 2. Excellent!

Tomorrow I'm seeing Life Of Pi. I read the book and loved it. Can't wait to see the movie. Looks like it will be really good.

I chortled at Roger Ebert's comment on "Guardians". "There's an audience for this film. It's not me. " But he still gave it 3 out of 4 stars. I guess you gotta love a film where Hugh Jackman plays the Easter Bunny!

We have a granddaughter with us for the holiday. She wants to see "Life of Pi" today. I guess she wants to brush up on her trigonometry.

I was never a big fan of 'Jeanie'.

Memory, how was Flight? I would like to go see it.

I saw both of those movies, Victor, and I really liked them myself. I loved the Dragon one. Seen it several times. That's one I'll never get tired of, but then I've always been a big dragon fan.

I loved the Hunger Games movie, and the book even more. I don't often find books that keep me riveted. I couldn't put that one down. Two other books that were like that for me were The Horse Whisperer and The Eyes Of The Dragon (Stephen King). Both I read in just 2 or 3 days. That's unheard of for me.

Just got back from seeing Life Of Pi. It's a must see movie. Amazing! That's all I'm going to say.

Don - I didn't find it so terribly depressing as it is a redemption story. The message was muddied, however as
I wasn't clear whether the crash was finally blamed on equipment failure or pilot error due to alcohol, in spite of the fact that the pilot was extraordinary.

My GF and I had a long talk afterwards about "functioning alcoholics" as we had both been married in the past to one of them. I never met hers, but she knew mine really well as they worked together. Denzel's character was one of those. The only thing I found unbelievable is that the character could love someone enough to actually take the blame himself for his actions. Guess those epiphanies do happen - but in real life - I think not so often. Or maybe that is my psyche wishing that had happened for me.

I keep hearing how good the Lincoln movie is.

They changed a few things in the movies, and left a few things out, due to time constraints, I'm sure, but they follow the book very well. I've read them all, and loved them, and I was not disappointed with the movies. In fact they really brought the story to life.

Yes, Bill, the added stuff that wasn't in the book to make it into more of a story than it was to begin with. They did such a good job with it. I will be taking my nephew to see it soon.

My nephew and I have been watching Game Of Thrones together. He loves it, as do I. I knew he would. He hadn't seen it before, though I had.

We have also been watching the first season of American Horror Story: Murder House on Netflix. What a weird, creepy show. We're both really into it.

I loved the new Batman. I have not seen the new Spiderman. I loved the original with Toby McGuire.

Is anyone here a Star Wars fan? I love it, but I love the older ones the best. I don't know if it's because they remind me of my younger days or what. There's just something about them that the newer ones could not even come close to.

I took my nephew to see the Hobbit this past weekend. He loved it. This was my second time seeing it. First time was in 2D. This time I saw it in that high def 3D. Awesome! The clarity of the picture was amazing! A friend came with us, and she said that high def 3D really bothered her. She's been having trouble with vertigo since seeing it, especially when waking up and getting out of bed. I have heard other people have had that experience as well.

Bill, I've been wanting to see Ted. I will still see it and draw my own conclusions.

Saw a movie on TV the yesterday with my nephew, an older one called Friday with Ice Cube and Chris Tucker. It had some very funny moments, but as stories go, it wasn't the greatest. For a really funny black comedy, check out Norbit with Eddie Murphy. I laughed so hard!

Oh, I saw The Guilt Trip with Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand. It was cute, but not great. Would not buy it.

There was actually a hot debate in Hollywood about inclusions of Twin Tower scenes;

I seem to recall a "Home Alone" version that edited out the painful images...fortunately, I can't remember the discussion, not something I want to-revisit (call me a wimp, it just hurts too much, still...)

Several TV shows, and films too, had to wrestle with the issue.

NBC show "Will and Grace" did a deliberate (expensive) street scene to show normality/solidarity; the Hugh Grant/Sandra Bullock film "Two Weeks Notice" (sic) made a point of publicizing its "first on the block" willingness to film locally across NYC.

Still hurts...

DH Mark and I liked the first episode. Kevin Spacey gives asides directly to the camera which is interesting. THe first few minutes blasted by as he quickly 'introduced' some major characters but bear with it.

Spacey is a long time COngressman who feels insulted at being denied a promised post by a new president. So he embarks on some highjinks and manipulations in order to get revenge. First episode sets that up and introduces several interesting major characters. (the ambitious in her own right wife, a young ambitious female newspaper reporter, screw up younger representative who will become Spacey's pawn )

Read an extensive story in our local paper about all the people who binge-viewed the whole series in a few days.

THank heavens for all you fellow prudes!!
We watched 2 episodes of a recent series, just to see William Macy whose acting we admire. I won't even name the show because the first episode was non stop crude crap, pandering to a really sleazy 20something audience. I don't want any of you to risk remembering the name as something 'recommended.'

HBOs ROME series started rough too , we could not watch. Barely survived "Sopranos"

OH and "The Americans" too, threw in some stuff..just not worth it to endure! Geez. Maybe they just want people to see those things and tweet everybody "OMG did you see..."

Be patient with Windows 8 and you'll find ways to get around very quickly. Don't have it myself, but one of the neighbors that I help with her computer bought a new laptop. At first I was really lost, but now I've learned to put everything that I want, where I want it. If you hate it, you won't relax enough to get there. Please don't stress yourselves out about it ladies. It takes all the fun out of it and gets in the way of your learning to enjoy it.
