We need to come up with a new title. My pick is:

Terror Train

The Battered Bastards of Baseball is a must for all baseball fans. I came across this on Netflix and knew nothing on the story and was fascinated for the entire runtime of this doco.

In the early 1970's Bing Russell (Kurt's dad) runs the only independent baseball team in the USA. All other teams are affiliated with major league clubs but not the Portland Mavericks. To recruit players they advertise in the paper for open tryouts and hundreds show up for a chance. Not for big bucks but a chance to play for the love of the game.

A real against the odds story.

4/5.

Dave Prowse who portrayed Darth Vader in the original three Star Wars films is the focus of this doco. Very interesting. His relationship with Lucasfilm has been strained since 1983 when it was wrongly reported that Prowse had told the press the Darth Vader was being killed off.

George Lucas was furious and hasn't spoken to Prowse since. Also when Vader's mask is taken off at the end of Return Of The Jedi, another actor was brought in to shoot that scene. It was shot on another studio stage with all the doors locked so Prowse would not find out.

Spanish filmmaker Marcos Cabotá tracks down Prowse in the hope of refilmimg the unmasking scene, this time with Prowse.

They do film it but we never get to see it.  :(

4/5.

Away All Boats

What was your favourite part of the movie?

I caught up with the 2016 version on our flight to Hawaii.

Overall I enjoyed it, probably would enjoy it even more on a screen wider than 7 inches or what ever they are on the back of the seat. Peter Sarsgaard played the baddie well. Whenever I want to see a character get gunned down so bad, it's a sign of a good performance for me.

Vincent D'Onofrio was my favourite of the seven.

Just came across this on Facebook. 

Fess Parker dies at 85; actor played Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone on TV

I'd watch Parker's Daniel Boone show sometimes with my dad when visiting him in Maine.





God Bless & Rest In Peace, sir.

Fess passed away in 2010. Facebook has a habit of posting about celebrity deaths on the anniversary but they don't say the year the celeb passed, so it does come across as new news.

The last season was the worst yet.

Really!!

I still have a few episodes left but I've really enjoyed it. The assassination attempt and now all the backstabbing going on to get his wife as Vice President has kept me interested again.

Probably it's all that standing on tiptoe trying against all odds to look like Reacher.

I thought the Hollywood trick was for all the other actors to walk in a trench when in a scene with Cruise?

Matt, you grew up in Philadelphia, right?

How many times has Matt run up those stairs we see in Rocky, I wonder?

I don't think I've ever seen this show. I've seen clips over the years but I don't remember it being on TV here. I'm sure it was but I was too young at the time and I don't remember it ever being rerun.

The first season of House Of Cards was brilliant, the second season started great but declined rapidly halfway through. The first three episodes of season three and things haven't improved much.

I took a break from this show for a couple of months. Towards the end of season 3 things picked up again. Onto season four now.
