For my fellow romantics....."Same Time Next Year" with Alan Alda and Ellen Burnstyn. One of my fav. "tear jerker" movies. If you haven't seen it you should. Watch it with your significant other for best effect.

This is a very tiny snippet - Alda is fantastic though throughout.....great stuff!

Thanks for the Dead Man!

From "Four Brothers" - Victor Sweet gets what's coming to him from Bobby "Don't screw with the Mercer brothers" Mercer...

Baz, Dead Man is a great film, but this one, well, it's unique:

Baz, if you're into offbeat, I have three I particularly like in that category:

Pretty wild TW...thanks!

With the passing of Sid Ceaser and subsequent discussion of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World I thought it a good time to post some new material....

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is on FXM right now with an encore coming up later.

It took me a while to get through the whole movie - and after watching it a couple more times I've grown to appreciate it all the more. Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett give amazing performances.

Cate's a hottie....and that alone is worth the price of admission!

Not really a movie as much as a documentary or an educational film - I am old enough to remember watching this one in grade school.

The creativity in this era is unmatched.....

More movie trivia......the Sherman Brothers who were responsible for some of the best song writing in motion picture history.

The Sherman Brothers were an American songwriting duo that specialized in musical films, made up of Robert B. Sherman (December 19, 1925 – March 6, 2012) and Richard M. Sherman (born June 12, 1928).

The Sherman Brothers wrote more motion-picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history.[1] Film scores of the Sherman Brothers include Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Charlotte's Web and The Aristocats.

Sons of Russian Jewish immigrants, Robert and Richard Sherman began writing songs together in 1951 on a challenge from their father, Tin Pan Alley songwriter Al Sherman. The brothers wrote together and with different songwriting partners throughout the rest of the decade.

In 1958, Robert founded the music publishing company Music World Corporation, which later enjoyed a landmark relationship with Disney's BMI-affiliated publishing arm, Wonderland Music Company. That same year, the Sherman Brothers had their first top-ten hit with "Tall Paul," sung by Mouseketeer Judy Harriet on the Surf Records label and then covered by Mouseketeer Annette Funicello. The success of this song yielded the attention of Walt Disney, who eventually hired the Sherman Brothers as Staff Songwriters for Walt Disney Studios. The first song they wrote on personal assignment by Walt Disney was "Strummin' Song" in 1961. It was used in the Annette Funicello made-for-television movie called The Horsemasters.

While at Disney, the Sherman Brothers wrote more motion-picture musical scores than any other songwriters in the history of film. They also wrote what is perhaps their best-known song, "it's a small world (after all)" for the 1964 New York World's Fair. Since then, some have claimed that this has become the most translated and performed song on Earth, although this is largely due to the fact that it is played continuously at Disney's theme park "it's a small world" attractions of the same name.[2]

Baz,

Gotta love her as Galadriel.



But speaking of short educational films, this - for me - is the winner:
