Maybe I’m getting superhero movie burnout.  I wasn’t planning on seeing this on the big screen.  I figured I’d just skip it and catch it later on cable or disc.  I was making plans to see The 15:17 To Paris and before I knew it, was caught up in committing to seeing this on IMAX.

I’m glad I did.  I thought the story was very good and it  held my interest.  Once again, Marvel hits one out of the park with a very entertaining film.

Not bad and surly a superhero movie with political views is odd enough but, I'd never skip an Eastwood movie ...

Now for an obituary of a star of a different kind, in the fashion world:

Hubert de Givenchy, Pillar of Romantic Elegance in Fashion, Dies at 91

He was perhaps best known for his association with Audrey Hepburn:

But as Mr. Givenchy told the story, she was not actually the Hepburn he had hoped to dress when he was told an actress wanted to meet him.

“Roman Holiday” had not yet premiered, so he thought it was Katharine Hepburn calling. Audrey Hepburn was searching for designs that would inspire the character of Sabrina Fairchild, a chauffeur’s daughter who is transformed into a sophisticate while studying in Paris, in Billy Wilder’s film “Sabrina” (1954).

“She wore tight little pants and a little T-shirt, and I was so disappointed she wasn’t Katharine,” Mr. Givenchy said of the actress, who came before him in ballerina flats and a straw gondolier’s hat. “I said I had no time — I was in the middle of making my second collection, and I didn’t have too many workers then. But we had dinner that night, and before dinner was over, I told her, ‘I’ll do anything for you.’ ”

The whole obituary is definitely worth a read, even if you don't follow fashion and Audrey Hepburn isn't one of your favorite movie stars. There's also an appreciation of Givenchy and Hepburn as the first "brand ambassadors":

And these excerpts from interviews with Givenchy, on Hepburn:

R.I.P., Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy (his full name).

Thanks KC, nice obituary ... He's just another of those characters that's been around forever.. I can't remember a time with no Ken Dodd and his passing is another reminder of my own mortality..

Jed don't worry about offending anyone who might have liked it. Everybody has there opinion and that's what this site is about. Expressing your thoughts and feelings on various Eastwood films. This film is not entertaining and won't get any nominations. I didn't go to the theatre expecting to be overly entertained. I went to see a film that Clint directed and to see the real heroes play themselves. And to see there story and how they saved all those passengers on that train. I personally enjoyed it. I enjoyed there journey they went thru that prepared them for that day. Again it's not an extremely entertaining movie and not a masterpiece. But I thought it was interesting. Just my opinion only.

Thank you.  I appreciate that.  It’s just sad that I no longer look forward to his new projects because he doesn’t star in them.  Well, such is life.  All good things come to an end.  Or do they?  There’s the possibility of his starring in “The Mule”, which pleases me to no end.  When my kids are old enough, I’ll be curious to know their opinion on the movies he’s started in.  That will, possibly, be a new experience.  They may not be interested and that’s okay.  If they are, it could be fun.

Well, hope you're answered.

Oh, it’s never too late.  I do it out of respect, regardless of ones’ religious beliefs.  My mom was a staunch atheist as well.  That didn’t, and doesn’t, stop me from asking for God’s blessing of her and to ask that she Rest In Peace.

Personally I enjoyed it. I thought it was deliberately mundane to emphasize the reality of it all for three regular guys on holiday.

I thought the three leads themselves were also fine. Their dialogue however was not. A terrible script in my opinion and it was the words they said, not how they said it, which came across so poorly.

Very good points palooka. I didn't even think about it being deliberately mundane to emphasize the reality of it for three regular guys. That's a great point. And I too thought the three guys did okay. Especially not having any acting experience. I mean there heroes.

Ken Dodd  RIP

English comedian (From Liverpool) Kenn Dodd passed away on the !!th March aged 90.

Dodd was pretty much the last of the old skool comedians who's career stretched way back to the music hall days.
I real old trouper who was still  performing quite frequently up until quite recently.. Famous for incessant delivery of often surreal jokes, and often known to perform for anything up to three hours..;  I remember him mainly from the 60's and 70's when he was rarely off the tv.. had a few hit records too and was quite a decent singer...

"Liverpool was the first environmentally freindly city... we had unleaded churches "

I think you'd have to be from Liverpool to get that joke  ;D ;D

England will be a sadder place without him..
