The Ultimate Star Wars Trailer

This fan-made trailer is for the whole Star Wars saga thus far.
It looks like they’ve been telling one story all along.
(I think Han even shoots first)

How To Succeed In Two Different Roles In The One Movie

In the movie musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying actor Sammy Smith plays two roles, mailroom manager Mr. Twimble and chairman of the board Wally Womper.
I hadn’t really noticed and it blew my mind a little.
Two very different characters and two accomplished performances with Robert Morse in the first clip and then with Morse and the company in the second.

Groundhog Day 2019

How else to spend the evening of February 2 than watching Groundhog Day?

“Do you ever have deja vu Mrs. Lancaster?
I don’t think so, but I could check with the kitchen.”

“Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today.”

“What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same and nothing that you did mattered?”
“That about sums it up for me.”

“You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.

(Phil could have done weather reporting in Melbourne)

An American In Metro

Metro Cafe in Mount Gambier has a dvd of An American In Paris (sound on mute) playing on their tv pretty much endlessly.

I’ve never seen them show any other dvd, and it’s either the dvd menu or the movie itself showing, no matter the time of day.

Modern Technology Would Have Ruined ‘Home Alone’

This ad for Google Assistant features the grown up Kevin McAllister (performed again by Macaulay Culkin) and demonstrates how pretty common tech these days would have made all his Home Alone hijinks redundant.
It also seems that Kevin still lives with his parents.

Watership Down Trailer

The BBC are producing a “new adaptation of Watership Down [that] uses Richard Adams’ bestselling novel as its source to bring an innovative interpretation to the much loved classic”.
I’m not sure what that exactly means, but it looks like Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and the others will be along.
It wouldn’t be the same without Art Garfunkel’s song, I wonder if it will be included or homaged somehow.
Here’s the trailer.
