I just read this, I am shaking.  KC was here since this board started years ago in old formats. Life hasnt been easy here with covid reaching thousand deaths for day. Hearing this made me question so many things . I felt like I knew her. She was always very kind to me during all those years. She will be forever in my heart. Rest in peace, Kathie.

It seems I come around only to post sad news but I am surprised any of you mentioned Christopher Plummer passing yesterday. I only know him for Col. Von Trapp from The Sound of Music but he sure was one of the greatest.

After Scorpio, he was the scariest villain. That bloody face when he shows up outside Harry's car window still impresses me.

Hi everyone. I thought I'd drop by to share my b-day on past wednesday. It was the first time I "broke" quarantine rules, it was just me and four close friends and we took all the cares. We have lived in a crazy, crazy world and being alive and healthy is a true blessing. I cant believe I am almost 50! When I first joined here I was so young and naive. Many of you are still here too, amazing.
Stay well, be safe.

Yes, I heard that on the radio even here in New York City! Very sad for all fans of true football! R.I.P.

And it's always nice to hear from you, Aline! :)

Thank you, KC. :) Even if I am not here that much I always check Clint instagram pages. I am very excited he is up for a new movie. O0

Argentine football player Diego Armando Maradona just passed away. The ones that enjoy football certainly know him. My father was an admirer, great player. He had a huge rivalry with Pele, an also famous brasilian player. Only 60 years old. Sad what unhealthy lifestyle can do.
Rip, Maradona.

Isnt't it, Chris? :)

I felt weird after reading I said they are pleasant movies :D What I meant the cinematography is pleasant, no CGI just talent of the actors. :)

I have been obsessed with catastrophe movies fom the 70's. There is something about them so pleasant to watch, I always think I was born in the wrong time. :(  I posted only the 77 but I watched all the Airport ones. The most disappointing for was Earthquake I couldnt like the story or the characteres. It was nice seeing Genevieve Bujold so young in that one.
My favorite are The Towering Inferno and The Poseidon Adventure, I cried so much in some scenes. Gene Hackman and all the cast are fantastic.

You dont talk much about The Witches do you? I never had much interest but a friend ordered the blu-ray and I got curious. I saw the parts Clint appears and they got me rolling on the floor laughing ;D That lady got a handsome but walking-dead hubby ;D He has a great comic timing, I so would like have seen him to do more stuff like this :D

Pasolini isnt the one the directed Salo? Yikes, one of the most disturbing movies I've seen.
I didnt know where to post this so as I saw the parts Clint shows up this is the last movie I watched. ;)

Hi everyone. Here in Brasil there not so many cases as the rest of the world. São Paulo is the more affected. Here in my city under 10 cases, the mayor has been very tight on the rules.
Staying at home never bothered me, I am used to do my things from here but not having the option of getting out and seeing the streets totally empty is so strange. :( 
Doug, I hope is nothing too much with your wife. KC I was so worried about you, please take care. Take care all of you.

What are you doing to keep busy?

What else? Books and movies :) I rewatched Firefox yesterday, I have always loved this movie.

Richard Jewell opened here last week as "O Caso Richard Jewell" (Richard Jewell Case) and have had some very good reviews. I watched the movie last night and must agree with them.

Richard Jewell works as one more chapter of a Clint's obsession: relating facts, characters (especially ordinary people) and chapters of US history through his clinical and melancholic look.

Only in the 2010 the veteran recounted the anguish of FBI's first director (J. Edgar), rise and fall of The Four Seasons (Jersey Boys: In Search of Music) vocal group, the red-hot nerves of a soldier (American Sniper) and a pilot avoiding a tragedy (Sully: The Hudson River Hero).

Richard Jewell subtly connects with all these movies, especially with Sully and 3:17 pm. It exposes, examines and problematizes the culture of building heroes and then demolishes them without any ceremony. In the era of the war on terror, a misleading (or at least hasty) newspaper cover is enough for an idol to become a traitor.

The main character (Paul Walter Hauser) is just a regular guy. Adult, single, lonely, living with his mother, Bobi (Kathy Bates, Golden Globe nominee for the role), he walks from job to job. But his true dream is to be a policeman again.

In this narrative of ordinary people - the falsely accused innocent, the self-sacrificing lawyer, and the suffering mother - against belligerent authorities, Eastwood seems to question: why is always easier to provoke minor collateral tragedies rather than accepting the lack of easy answers to horror of terrorism? The Richard Jewell Case is a straightforward portrayal of how contradictory, flawed, and fleeting the concept of heroism can be.

Billy Ray's script (Captain Phillips, Terminator: Dark Destiny) does not surrender to generalizations, such as pointing a finger at the media. Remember, for example, that Eastwood celebrated good journalism in the underrated True Crime (1999).

With the usual visual and sentimental economy, the filmmaker sets the plot in powerful performances by dramatizing the delicate fabric that separates private and public life, the press and justice. In times of fake news around the world, Richard Jewell is an irresistibly up-to-date nineteenth-century movie.

There are some others very interesting reviews that I am lazy to translate right now but those are the links.

I look a mess but took a picture :idiot2:
