    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Prescription Thugs is a documentary about the pharmaceutical industry and the damage it is doing to the people of America. There was one stat that said America is less than 5% of the world's population, but America's use of prescription drugs is 80% for the entire planet. One thing that stands...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Last night we watched I Give It a Year, a 2013 comedy which stars Rose Byrne, Simon Baker, Anna Faris, Rafe Spall (whose name you might not recognize, but you've probably seen in a lot of things), Minnie Driver and Olivia Colman in an over-the-top (and too short) freaking hilarious cameo...

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Watched Jayne Mansfield's Car last night with a friend. We both liked it, but at the end, I said, "it seemed like I was watching a drama and you were watching a comedy". So I guess that means it's a movie that works on both levels! :lol: It's about two families who both face a tragedy and...

    This Is Us

    I thought that food issues were now considered on the same level as alcohol or drugs in that some people have something different in their brain which makes them more drawn chemically to certain things to such an extent that it can result in self-harm. And that others have brains without this...

    This Is Us

    My two favourite scenes of the last episode are when the Moms are in the kitchen taking control and putting their family back on track. First, Rebecca's teenage kids are having an argument (with their guest in the living room hearing pretty much everything. Rebecca gets in their and gives them...

    2019-2020 Fall - Spring TV New/Returning Shows

    I was really pleasantly surprised by The Unicorn. A very fun half hour and who knew that Walton Goggins (Justified, Django Unchained) could fit into a comedy?? A great supporting cast and the two girls who played the daughter of Goggins character do a good job of voicing their objection to...

    2019-2020 Fall - Spring TV New/Returning Shows

    I thought Evil was really strong. I thought the premise sounded dubious (a Catholic investigator and a lapsed Catholic psychologist investigating possible demonic possessions and other supernatural happenings), but the writing is very strong and the two leads, Katja Herbers and Mike Colter, are...

    This Is Us

    You mean the guy who struggles with alcoholism? The guy whose girlfriend was rejected by one record label executive and responded by shrugging and taking her home rather than tell his girlfriend that one rejection is no reason to give up on a dream? The guy whose daughter is clearly...

    This Is Us

    The show is so popular, it's attracting some big names to join the cast. Tim Matheson and Elizabeth Perkins as Rebecca's parents (have they been on the show before)? Omar Epps, Jennifer Goodwin (Once Upon A Time) and Asante Blackk, fresh off an Emmy nomination for his phenomenal work in When...

    News and updates à la Française, part trois

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9sfAVOEVAQ It sounds like music they've skated to about 87 times already. I bet they could take choreography from any previous free dance and put it over top of this music and it would fit.

    Exactly. She's slacking off trying to win $100,000 for the Alzheimer Society in honour of her deceased grandmother (who had Alzheimers). Where are her priorities??

    So literal! :lol: Okay, let me correct my big error.... Have you been DYING to see three new Terrence Malick-ish movies?

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Have you been DYING to see three new Terrence Malick movies? You know where there's tons of voice-overs done in poetic verse as people ramble through grassy fields as their fingers run over the tops of the flowers? Where nothing really happens, but you do get lots of close-ups of the sides of...
