So many choices....

- Hunt for Red October,
- Usual Suspects,
- Moonstruck,
- Gladiator


I enjoy the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones movies - But I have listened to these so often (not watched) as we drive along in the car to entertain the kids, that they have lost some of their luster.

"Flight"

Oh boy, I know the flying friend will loathe this because it's loaded with the pervasive media stereotyping which is an anathema to him, but I'll probably head to the local motion-picture palace and pay the $13.50 for the first run. I doubt if this will ever be my favourite film, but it is getting decent reviews.

The scene that got to me is one where Denzel Washington is mesmerized by the contrail slashing across the sky. I was also enchanted by this one at Sunshine Valley.....

ANY movie with Jar Jar Binks had no luster to begin with. That's the one thing that worries me about Disney buying out LucasFilms; more characters like him in an attempt to pander to the kids. Come on, moviemakers! Kids aren't stupid. They can enjoy science fiction (science fantasy, space opera, whatever you wish to call it) without characters designed to look and act goofy.

Ah! I just figured it out… Jar Jar Binks was LucasFilm's version of Goofy from the Mickey Mouse franchise! The parallels are remarkable!

Road, haha. Years ago I attended a Garlic Festival which was juxtaposed with an exhibit called "The Avro Arrow - A Dream Denied." How apropos: the quashed Arrow turned into Canada's stinkin' rose. (I was so moved by the display that I wrote a story, but lost it when my old computer crashed).

One of the Avro test pilots tried to scoff the prototype before the wreckers got to it. He wanted to preserve it by plunging it into a watery vault at the bottom of Lake Ontario, but was thwarted by the company goons.

Howard Huges was also interested in the Avro engine, and was on the verge of negotiating a commercial version.

Alas, the weekend after Diefenbaker's "Black Friday" the head hunters from NASA and European aerospace swooped in and scooped-up our best engineers who were instrumental in the Saturn/Gemini/Apollo and Concord projects.

I could go on.....but you know the rest of the story.

Yes Fly at Night, I was a kid back then and we lived just a few miles from where the Arrow project was underway. One Arrow (in a test flight) flew over our school yard one day. Back then seeing that shape in the sky was memorable.

Seems the Doc Holliday character has stolen the show in every Tombstone movie ever made. Victor Mature, Kirk Douglas, Jason Robards, Dennis Quade, Val Kilmer. All great movies, are there any others about Tombstone?

I don't see the problem. Jar Jar is a big improvement on our contemporary politicians. You have to put these things in perspective.

Apples & oranges. Jar Jar was designed to appeal to children, but annoyed adults. Politicians are designed to appeal to adults, but annoy everyone.

One of my favorite movies is Double Wedding, starring William Powell and Myrna Loy from 1937.

Any movie with William Powell and Myrna Loy is memorable but this one has something special. I watch it over and over, in fact I watched it last night for at least the dozenth time and enjoyed it as much as ever.

As an added attraction Powell plays a free spirit who lives in an "auto trailer" in a parking lot. There are several scenes set in or around the trailer including a picnic in the woods and the wedding scene which rivals the Marx Brothers stateroom scene from A Night At The Opera.

Another great picture is The Artist a silent black and white movie set in the twenties but made in 2011. It is a lot better than I expected and rivals the best silent pictures.
