Tuesdays are usually movie day. My decision to watch Mission Impossible 2 today had nothing to do with current affairs, but was entirely coincidental. It’s somewhat famous for having an incomprehensible plot, but actually makes more sense than what’s going on in real life. And they lived happily until the next sequel…
How To Steal A Million – Peter O’Toole and Audrey Hepburn playing delightfully to type. Simon Dermott (O’Toole): Why must it be this particular work of art? Nicole Bonnet (Hepburn): You don’t think I’d steal something that didn’t belong to me, do you? Simon Dermott: Excuse me, I spoke without thinking.
Bill Murray and a few familiar (though older) faces revisit the premise of Groundhog Day and encounter one difference that makes a lot of difference. Phil the groundhog doesn’t seem to have aged a day. This had 16.5 million views when I saw it on YouTube.
The motion picture, The Red Shoes. Wow.
I can’t ever recall having seen Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Very enjoyable. (mid-filibuster)
Went to the funeral of a remarkable man who died too young. He liked a particular movie. Music from it featured at the service. I watched the movie again. It revolves around a historical event and focuses on creativity, determination, daring, and heart. Just like the man whose life we gave thanks for this morning.
I’m looking forward to watching this on a large screen in ultra high definition. My youngest daughter has reservations about children watching it. She seems to subscribe to this review.
