    I watched "The History Of The World In Two Hours" last night. It's a documentary done by the History Network I believe. It was very watchable and quite speedy, believe it or not! But some of the earlier explanations of things came to be were something I struggled with. I'm agnostic, but some of the creationist theories seem more believable to me. For an entire universe to appear in the blink of an eye as the result of a big bang? Come on, seriously? But it was fun. And most of the stuff I new, but to see it all in one continuous telling made it all gel together well. Actually, there was lots of little details I didn't know exactly, so it was quite informative too. I recommend it.

    Hmm. This week is the weakest ever that I can remember for new movies releases. None are going on my To See lists. Althought Zach Efron is looking so incredibly buff and toned these days that if anyone sees That Awkward Moment and gives it the slightest of thumbs up, then it's going on my DVDs To See list.

    I get the feeling from the trailers it is just a good opportunity to do a whole lot of collateral damage.

    Oscars kill Original Song nomination for 'Alone Yet Not Alone'
    http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/01/2...lone-breaking/

    The "composer, a former governor of the music branch and current member of its executive committee, took advantage of his leadership position to improperly lobby fellow members of the branch".

    People should know better by now that they can't get away with this kind of stuff. I'm actually wondering if this whole thing was a big publicity move. According to imdb.com, this movie isn't getting a wide release until this June. It's probably a movie that would have come and gone with little fanfare. Now maybe it will be acknowledged in the press more than it would have been otherwise...and get a bit more box office attention. Complete unsure if this could be their strategy, but it makes me wonder!

    One of the backstory tidbits: Bette Davis received her TENTH oscar nomination for her role in this film which so pizzed off Joan Crawford she schemed up a delicious revenge. Bwahaha. Whee!

    Catch this mega$$$$box office flick again on TCM next Thursday afternoon.:-)

    Eli Glasner, who's my favourite movie reviewer (he's often delightfully snarky, and I agree with him about 90% of the time) had this to say about Labour Day:

    "... And oh, the pie! Labour Day will do for fruit-filled pastry what Ghost did for potter. Shot after shot of Brolin's manly hands pushing into the dough."

    I watched The Showgirl Must Go On last night, it's the live show Bette Midler did in Las Vegas. I'm pretty sure it's the show a friend of mine went to when she was there. Except she paid either $250 or $350 per ticket and I got the DVD from the library for free! It was very good...but short. Only 79 minutes. It's ballad-heavy, but she evens that out with some hilarious comedy monologues. There's two or three dance numbers for the female-only dance cast which are visually beautiful and gives Midler time to change into something new. Tons o' fun, especially at this price.

    Sounds like Brolin made Eli's dough rise.

    Oh, you said Bette Midler. At first, I read that as Bette Davis and I was like, what?

    Jeremy Irons as Alfred. Hmm. I think that'll be the most sinister Alfred we've ever seen.

    I watched Wanderlust (Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Alan Alda, Justin Theroux, Malin Akerman, Ken Marino, Lauren Ambrose and Linda Lavin) the other day and thought it was a lot of fun. The flow of the whole movie stumbles a bit in the final third, but overall there's lots of good stuff in her for me to recommend this one to all of you. Not sure why it did so poorly at the box office. Probably because they went after the audiences of recent R-rated comedies (The Hangover, Ted, etc.). They could have easily made this a less raunchy movie, but the whole

    Spoiler

    sub-plot would have had to be dropped. Anyway, it was welcome viewing after all the dramas I've seen of late. Oh, and I can see why Aniston fell for Theroux, he's magnetic in this movie!

    I read somewhere recently that Walt had connections to the Nazi party, but after a very brief google search (I want to go get some lunch!) it looks like that is either not true or pretty much exaggerated. There's still Song of the South, though.......

    Sundance Deal Wrap-Up: Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart Films Remain Unsold
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...up-anne-674833

    Others mention in the article include Zach Braff, Kristin Wiig, Ted Danson and Kurt Russell.

    GLAAD Media Award Nominees Announced
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...nounced-675568

    "Dallas Buyers Club," "Blue Is the Warmest Color" and "Philomena" are among the contenders in the film categories, while "Orange is the New Black" and "Grey's Anatomy" snagged outstanding TV drama noms.
    Does anyone know what the gay connection in Philhomena is? (You might want to spoiler your answer if you post here so no one gets made at us. ) And has anyone been watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine? I saw a few of the first episodes, don't remember there being any gay characters in it though. Also, I didn't realize that they don't have any acting nominess, just categories for movies and TV shows.

    I don't want anyone but Michael Caine as Alfred.

    I don't think I am going to be ready for this new Batman film at all. I probably won't even go, unless it gets absolutely stellar reviews, and I honestly do not think it will based on nothing more than gut feeling.

    I saw 'Her' today. I had expected a really good movie. Instead, I found it boring. May be it was just a bad day to see it. Sometimes a movie seems really uninteresting on first viewing, but really good on second viewing. I am hoping that is the case. I liked the idea behind it, and Joakin Phoenix was great, but the movie just didn't work for me, at least today.

    Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor in the next Superman movie. I swear this film is going to blow. The more I hear about it the less interested I am of it.

    The Icelandic road trip pic 'Land Ho!' looks interesting.

    Not in the article but mentioned earlier in this thread, I give a big vote to 'Troll Hunter'.
