  1. Valley Girl - original. Holds up ok as an 80's teen-com with Plimsouls and Frederick Forrest making it rise above the middling fare.
  2. All four seasons of Fresh Meat are available. Comfort food, but comfort food that makes one laugh. Six main characters awkwardly fuck and fuck up at a uni house in Manchester.

    GLORIA

    Ill take Sherlock Pub in Sharpstown Mall 2 piece band that played Gloria 10 straight times to close out the night.
  4. Saw Across the Pacific with Huston initially directing until drafted to make war films and starring Bogart, Astor and Greenstreet. In between Maltese Falcon and Casablanca. Good action and acting.
  5. The Swimmer. Based on John Cheever story and starring Burt Lancaster. Studio very unhappy with result and hired Sydney Pollack to direct some changes and made Lancaster pay for last day of shooting. Read the story when I was young and would like to read now at my advanced age, but no longer have the book. I swim everyday and so my interest was to see if there was any like-mindedness. Lancaster picks his route across upper class suburbia and swims his way uninvited in neighbors pools with mixed reaction. It would be a better movie without the studio additions, but the movie that stuck with me. I share very little with the main character, although my ex-wife may find a few resemblances. Burt and I do share the absolute joy of diving in water. He in pools and me in the river.
  6. Hell yeah. Made me laugh after my divorce. BBC's Tinker Tailor and Smiley's People with John Gielgud are excellent. Available on regular youtube. And Fleabag had best answer for favorite period piece...Carrie.
  7. Curious to what your reaction was to Iannucci's other film "In the Loop" In the Loop was an instant comedy classic.
  8. Double feature on TCM: Dodsworth: Have you thought how little happiness there can be for the old wife of a young husband? Kurt! Your mother's leaving. Philadelphia Society: What most wives fail to realize is that their husbands philandering has nothing whatever to do with them. Then what has it to do with? A reluctance to grow old, I think.
  9. Good article about the true story of Great Escape. https://www.history.co.uk/article/the-true-story-of-the-great-escape The Man Who Never Was - Terrific movie and true story of the feint British pulled before invading Sicily.
  10. ESPN's updated too early Top 25 now has 5 B-12 teams. BU-3, KU-6, TT-9, WV-17 and UT-20. UH is 19. Hopefully there will be a season. https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/29194264/gonzaga-new-no-1-college-basketball-way-too-early-top-25-2020-21
  11. And when I heard that voice, I immediately thought of 16 Candles.
  12. Brewster McCloud - a WTF movie, but it's Altman and set in Houston. Hudson & Harrigan anyone. The Strange Love of Margaret Ivers - Kurt Douglas was a riot.
