My brother has COVID! He has been feeling terrible for 10 days. He is a doctor and was treating COVID patients at the hospital and has all the symptoms. I talked to him today and he has lost 6 pounds in the past 10 days. Says he can't eat anything, has shortness of breath, a nasty cough, and chills keeping him up at night. He sounds terrible. I feel sad and worried for him! Of everyone in my life, I'm the closest to him, so he just has to be okay!

Our thoughts and prayers to you, your brother and family at this time AKA.  :)

I finished Tiger King over the weekend, including the episode released yesterday which wasn't much. Bizarre show from start to finish. But like a car wreck you can't look away.

If we wanted to have a conversation about this series, I would ask if anyone thinks that what Carole Baskin does is really any different than what Joe Exotic does (except that she filed her business as a 501c3 nonprofit and doesn't pay anyone to work there, they are all volunteers).

I was thinking that about half way through the series. To me it was exactly the same private zoo set up to Joe's.  :-\

I’ve seen two episodes so far. Freakin’ bizarre. :o :o

We have a term down here, “only in America “ that’s appropriate for this show.

We probably should move this discussion to the Netflix topic though.  :)

Unfortunately it looks like a lot of people here, teens through to 40's are just not getting the message yet about staying home. At least we've got a chance to slow this virus as we see what's going on in Europe and The States and we're probably a few weeks behind in getting to a stage where hospitals will be over run. Watched 60 minutes last night and New York hospitals using trucks as make shift morgues is not a sight you'll forget in a hurry.

We didn't leave the house this weekend. Made a conscious effort to stay home and we started tidying the house, room by room. We'll do the same next week. We did actually go out once, to buy a fold up table that my wife can use as a desk so she can work from home.

I thought a quick trip to the hardware store, grab a table and be out in minutes. And we did. I just couldn't believe how many people were there. I've never seen the carpark so full. Plenty of people around. They had tape on the ground at the registers to keep your distance and only four people to an aisle but I was shocked at how many people are still going about as if everything is normal. I felt really uncomfortable until i got back to the car.

I still have to go to work as I'm classified as essential and I'm grateful I still have a job because there are 1,000's losing their jobs daily with most things closing down.

But after yesterday, I'm just going to go to work and home each day. To the supermarket sparingly for anything we need.

I think the most appropriate Eastwood quote for this situation is:

“It’s a [email protected]#k!”

We're still business as usual down here for the moment. There's been a few cases and it does increase daily but almost all of the infected are people who have returned from overseas. As long as others who return self isolate for a mandatory two weeks, it will slow the spread. Haven't heard from Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson for a couple of days so hoping no news is good news.

The panic buying in the shops has been embarressing to say the least. Fighting over toilet paper is just bizarre. Over filling your shopping trolley with packs and packs of toilet paper is just dumb. There isn't a shortage but once it hits the shelves, it's gone. Now it's pasta, long life milk, frozen veggies etc.

We've just finished summer and heading for winter so it could get a whole lot worse. Apparently after today, no international visitors for up to six months are allowed into the country and domestic flights should only be taken if necessary.

So the advice is stay home if not at work.

Wasn’t there a nuclear bomb scare in Hawaii a few years back? Everyone got a text message that one of the islands was going to be hit in less than ten minutes.

Maybe that’s Clint’s next film?

Happy belated birthday palooka.

A very good, solid film.. Perhaps the kind of film I'd be happy to see sandwiched between more daring, fictional dramas from Clint.
I agree with a lot of the comments above . The acting from everyone is superb. Once again Clint gets masterful performances from his cast, it's an enjoyable thought provoking piece..

I saw this last weekend was very impressed. Always good to go into a film with zero expectations. Agree with what Gant said above and can't add much more than what has already been said.

What I did notice were two scenes with a TV on in the background. One was of the film, The Sands Of Iwo Jima, starring one of America's hero's of the 20th century (onscreen at least) John Wayne. And one with Jimmy Stewart. Not only a hero onscreen but a real life WWII hero. I didn't see any credit in the final credits so I'm not sure what film it was but it clicked with me straight away how Clint juxaposed Richard Jewell with these other American heroes. Only a little thing some people may have missed but I thought it was extremely well done.

Season 1 episode 6 of the television series Yellowstone opens with the theme from Unforgiven. Couldn’t see any credit given in the closing credits as the rolled too fast.

Most overrated Oscar winner since, oh, let's see ... maybe Forrest Gump.

Nah, Titanic, The English Patient, Shakespeare In Love even more so.

Kathy Bates didn’t win the Oscar, Laura Dern took home the statuette for Marriage Story.

“I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain.”

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend, hot and 40C +. This weekend, 20C and three days of constant torrential rains. 😳😳😳

Anyone seen Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner?

I've seen about 5 episodes and while it is interesting, I'm finding a lot of the plot so depressing. The daughter of Costner's character has to be the most loathsome character I've ever witnessed in a TV show as well.
