I?m not sure when I?ll venture out to see another new movie.  The last Batman and James Bond films were major disappointments.  That plus Showcase Cinemas in Revere having closed down are big deterrents.  Maybe the next Star Trek, if there is one and/or Star Wars.

Off-Topic Discussion / My mom
« on: December 01, 2022, 04:10:14 PM »
Sixteen years ago today, God called my mom Home.  Affectionately known by my siblings and I simply as ?Ma.?  Sad to say I didn?t have as close a relationship with her as my brother, sisters and niece.  While that was a struggle for decades she made peace with me prior to her passing.  That?s all that matters now, along with as many positive memories I can cling to.  For years after she was gone I kidded myself into believing how great it was for family members, friends and colleagues to have such a better relationship with her than I did.  On my 54th birthday in 2020 I had an epiphany while discussing this with my cousin at his home in Kingston, NH.  Ironically, prior to having to move due to health reasons, this is the same town she lived in where she had purchased a home with a lakeside view.  The powerful epiphany was that while I had been repeating those sentiments to him that day, I didn?t truly feel that way.  Upon realization, I was overwhelmed with guilt and became uncomfortable to the point that I had to excuse myself temporarily to go outside for a walk, get some air and contemplate.  Upon my return I explained to him why I?d become emotional and was grateful to have been able to have shared the revelation with him.  I had come to the realization that I?d been carrying jealousy of others because I didn?t share the closeness to her the way they did.  I?d gotten so used to suppressing that because I felt ashamed, but since then I?ve come to terms with it and can now admit and say I truly am glad for the closeness shared by others with her that I didn?t.  Ma wasn?t a religious person and for a long time I wasn?t sure of my own beliefs.  I wish I could hear the conversations she?s having with Him now.  I will always miss her and wish she could?ve been present to witness the arrival of the rest of her grandchildren.  I?m sure she?s watching over all of them very lovingly now and forever.  God Bless you, Ma.

This is definitely a worthy sequel.  My girlfriend Cydney, her Dad Frank and I watched it last night and all enjoyed it.

I saw The Director?s Edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture when it was first released on dvd.  I enjoy that version over the original.  The improved effects are great, but the film is still too damn long.  This would be much better as a tv episode, which would bring it under sixty minutes.  I would chop out the majority of the crew?s reaction to entering and flying through the V?Ger cloud.  That is the most supremely boring filmmaking I?ve ever experienced, after 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I originally had tickets to see it on the big screen, but something came up and exchanged them for another movie another day.  The only thing that would?ve made seeing this on the big screen is the enhanced effects.  I think they did a great job with that.

Warner Bros. May Have Ended Their 50-Year Partnership With Clint Eastwood


A sad state of affairs.  My apologies, I thought the content of this link was different because I noticed the date of August 4, but it?s not.  Still, it?s disheartening.  I hope Eastwood?s new project is a major success and he has the last laugh.

Finally saw Lafayette Escadrille on TCM today and there was one neat tidbit that I never knew about this movie.  The pitcher throwing to Clint in the baseball game was no other than Billy Jack himself... Tom Laughlin.  Pretty sure I never knew this.

That?s very interesting! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Off-Topic Discussion / The Beatles Appreciation Thread

I enjoyed seeing this.  It?s a perfect time capsule showing them working together on their second to last project. 

The one major downside for me is Yoko Ono.  I can NOT stand her screeching.  The cacophony of nonsensical noise she emits from her mouth is too much to bear.  There is absolutely, positively and unequivocally no musical or entertaining value to it.  I can?t believe it was included at all. 

I wonder why Paul singing Besame Mucho was edited out from the original.  That didn?t make sense, either. 

Otherwise, seeing and watching The Beatles working on their recordings after having finished The White Album was great.  It was very cool hearing them mention Elvis? birthday, too.

Very cool Brian. Always nice and uplifting to hear great stories like this. Wish you and her many more great times together!
Thank you!  We got back from vacation today.  We rented a cabin at Lake Winnipesaukee and had a great time.

Sad to learn of the passing of James Caan on July 6, Larry Storch and Tony Sirico on July 8.  Goodbye Sonny, Agarn and Walnuts. 

God Bless you, Sirs.  Rest In Peace.
