   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  1955: An ex-pilot and current baseballer is recalled into the U.S. Air Force and assumes an increasingly important role in Cold War deterrence.

Hint: It stars one of Rich's unfavorites.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  This scene is always on any "Cheesiest movie scenes" list, but even if I don't care for either Richard Gere or Debra Winger, I love this improbable ending to a pretty good movie.

   Tulsa  Looks like Sean Penn with a perm. Nothing more. Never seen a single thing he has done.

   Richdet  Title is "Milk," for which Sean Penn won the Oscar for best actor playing San Francisco politician Harvey Milk.

   StormCnter  I avoided this movie, but I know Penn is capable of doing good work. I am a little suspicious of his Oscar for this one, though, because the Academy is always on the PC side.

Rich and Tulsa win their own leis. Sean's has wilted by now.

   StormCnter posted on Suggested Reading  I just finished Joe Ide's "I.Q." and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Joe Ide wrote a sequel, "Righteous". I read the sequel first and then just had to go back and get "I.Q.". These books are a little different. They're about grimy gang turfs in Los Angeles and a brilliant youngster whose livelihood is solving small mysteries for free for people he likes while trying to make enough money to provide care for a kid whose injuries he feels he caused. I really enjoyed these books. I recommend both of them. But try to read "I.Q." first. According to Goodreads, there is a third book, too. I'm ordering it right now.

   Gram77  This book is on my mile long list. At this time I am about half way through Only Killers and Thieves. I was so deep into The Great Alone I had to work with getting started. The book is accurate to the time it is being told. It is a "hard" story and is told "hard". The vocabulary and slang is accurate and give the story life. It seems you and I read a bit alike and are willing to tackle most anything. I will be really interested in hearing your opinion once you tackle and complete the journey across Australia.

   StormCnter posted on Movies & Reviews  Name that movie:
1. Big wind, cute dog, pig-tailed girl.
2. Cryptic deathbed word, mogul's rise to power and then a collapse.
3. Aging star needs career boost but it all leads to madness, violence and death.
4. After witnessing a crime, the undercover disguises give a wrong impression to Lotharios.
5. They dreamed of Empire, it worked for a while, but the head of a "king" proved the folly.

   Richdet  I am pretty sure I know the solution to #1, but the title is Toto-ally escaping me.

   Gram77  Is #1 The Wizard of Oz? Maybe #3 might be Sunset Boulevard.

   StormCnter  Gee, y'all are fast. I'll have to work on some new ones. Everyone is correct. Good morning Rich and Calvin. I've already greeted Gram.

   Richdet  Blegh. Poor Julie, no fun at all. I much prefer Lauren Bacall's approach to this issue. I think she has the better handle on it:
