“'Nostalgia is not a fake emotion. It is an ache for something that did exist.
It involves an almost fatalistic acceptance of the permanent presence of loss.'"

Re: Someone's having a birthday!

Thanks to you both. It has been a lovely week so far with more to come. Turning 60 has been a bit of a jolt for me but I can say this has been the best one I have had for quite a few years. Family and friends, such as you two, have made it a fine week.

Re: Silverado . . . AGAIN

No. It could be very interesting. Clearly, he has feelings for her. Is it brotherly love or more? I think there is, at the very least, an intellectual love. On a level they "get" each other. If it had been a TV series it would be a real interesting part of the story line.

It was a lovely time. CA and I still talk about it. Thanks for all you have done from your blogs to snaring interesting people to come for visits to our playground. I am glad so many have stayed in touch.

Re: Robert Osborne Has Died - R.I.P.

Even when I recorded things to keep I always made sure I got his introduction. He was a guy who came to my house to visit and tell me things about movies. He took great joy in sharing what he knew. I appreciated the fact that he didn't pretend that some movies were good when they weren't. They were ...

Re: What recent films have you seen?

Watched "Philomena" starring Judi Dench. Based on a true story it is about an Irish woman who 50 years after her child was "sold" to an adoptive American family goes to find him. Heartbreaking at the core of it there is quite a bit of humor in it as Judi tries to fill a hole in h...

Re: LISTS

Yes, 1962 was a great year for movies. Most of the great ones, however, were non-English language. THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL (Luis Bunuel), all by itself, elevates the year. Add THE TRIAL OF JOAN OF ARC (Robert Bresson) and several others, and it is spectacular. But, for the English language movies, ...

Nice that you are back. Being a hard ass helped you beat those things. You keep going and keep looking for those fans. All the while remember we are here, maybe not as often but still here.

Re: Silverado . . . AGAIN

Hi Anne: Completely agree. I refer to this as "The Kitchen Sink" western. About every plot in a western seems to be thrown in. I like the cast, Hunt and Brian Dennehy are particularly good. One thing I really like about it is the humor. Kline is given most of it and the fact that he is so ...

Re: Welcome Scott O'Brien for a Q & A on Sylvia Sidney 12-17 & 12-18

Mr. O'Brien, it is great to have you back again. Thanks for coming. I recently saw Sylvia in an episode of "The Equalizer." Was quite surprised she turned up there even if it was a small role. She has a huge body of television work. For her was it a matter of just working and keeping herse...
