I "borrowed" that Tom Hanks one. ;D

I saw the story posted last night on facebook but it was a bit too late to stop by the board to see if anyone had posted it already.

Sounds very interesting! I'm guessing we might see this released next year perhaps.

David Letterman's mom, Dorothy Mengering, was a celebrity in her own right, and she died a few days ago at the age of 95. I remember watching her on The Late Show years ago.

Here's a nice article about David's eulogy for her: http://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/celebrity/letterman-gives-eulogy-for-his-mother-in-indiana/ar-BBzSyKc?li=BBnb7Kz&OCID=ansmsnnews11

Maybe the novel will be reprinted for this. I'd really like to read it.
And it is going to happen. You can preorder the movie tie-in edition on Amazon now.

I'm more interested in reading it and comparing it to the original movie than the new one.

I went to a special screening of Clue last night (also showing in theaters on Wednesday). I've seen this movie several times but knew it'd be fun to see it with an audience, and it was. It's such funny movie, and Madeline Kahn and Eileen Brennan steal the show, though all of them are great.

Eastwood News / Don Rickles has died at 90

Sad to read that Don Rickles has died at the age of 90. I'm posting in the news because of his role in Kelly's Heroes.

A few months ago I started watching a few episodes of Frasier, and over the last week or so I've started watching it regularly. I think I'm going to try to get through the whole series (11 seasons). In the past I've seen some episodes but not all of them. I started watching reruns of it before the series ended, and haven't actually seen the end of it. In fact I was reading through some info about the series earlier and saw a pretty big plot development that happens later in the series that I didn't even know about!
I'm currently in season 9 of Frasier. 8) By this point I can place it as one of my favorite sitcoms.

Netflix recently added The Real Ghostbusters cartoon that started in 1986. I remember watching it as a kid, and have watched the first two episodes. So fun to revisit childhood stuff! ;D

I woke up in the mood for muppets -- and a few of their best songs were sticking in my head, so I did a Muppets Marathon. I could do this all day. Surely, there's no better actor than Kermit, nor better songwriter. Muppets all the way.  O0


:2funny:

This reminds me that last year on this day we pretended to be each other, I think it was. :D ;D

Sorry to hear about your dad, Brian.

I watched I am Your Father a few months ago, and enjoyed it as well. You really do have to feel for the guy.

Power Rangers is the one I'm most surprised to see on my own list. I never watched the original series. In fact, several months ago I watched the very first episode of the series on Netflix, and that's the only episode I've seen. So I don't come to this as a fanboy in any way. It looks interesting.
I saw Power Rangers tonight and I enjoyed it a lot! There's a lot of action and humor, and the villain is kinda scary.

Beauty and the Beast will probably be my next theater trip.

A few weeks ago I caught most of a movie called Girlfriends from 1977 or '78 (the credits listed 77, IMDb lists 78). I really liked what I saw so ordered the DVD through the library. It's just a little slice of life indie movie about a young photographer trying to make it after her best friend gets married and leaves her living alone.

And it was fun to see Eli Wallach in a guest starring role in it as a rabbi.

^ Franco Nero starring in an Enzo Castellari film? I'd watch it. I like Keoma anyhow.

I have to admit, I have a hard time thinking of poutine, or seeing it on a menu without being the same way.

I'll never see Beavis and Butthead without thinking they look like Don Jr. and Eric Trump.

But, the poutine is NOTHING compared to the "Big Jazz Burger" at one of my local restaurants. I will have to photograph it and add it here. Ever... single.... person in my party saw it on the menu, and thought it said something other than "Jazz"... it was the font choice.  I was literally afraid I would slip and order the incorrect burger. (insert Beavis/Butthead laughing here).
My response to all of that: :2funny:

And now I also have this funny image of the two of us being Beavis and Butthead.

Confuse future archeologists by burying your dead pets in military uniforms.. :)
;D That's funny!

I came here to post that I heard a local DJ talk about poutine this morning. I almost did the Beavis and Butthead laugh.

There's a few new movies I'd like to see, Kong being one of those. Also Beauty and the Beast, Get Out, The Belko Experiment, and opening this weekend are Power Rangers and Life. I doubt I make it to see all of those though.

Power Rangers is the one I'm most surprised to see on my own list. I never watched the original series. In fact, several months ago I watched the very first episode of the series on Netflix, and that's the only episode I've seen. So I don't come to this as a fanboy in any way. It looks interesting.

I saw a Facebook post from Chuck Berry's page mentioning that plans for his upcoming album were going to continue as scheduled. I'm looking forward to hearing some new material from him.

I prefer him ten more times than Matt Damon. I liked him in Interview with the Vampire, Mission Impossible movies and Knight and Day. I haven't watched Jack Reacher, now I am curious.
I enjoy Matt Damon as well. I think both guys are good actors.

I don't know anything about the Jack Reacher in the book, but Hugh Jackman would probably be good.

Logan was great! Very brutal, and probably the most adult oriented superhero movie I've seen (Deadpool is definitely "adult" but also appeals to the 12 year olds in all of us ;D).
