    Discovered we have an Alamo near us so we caught Close Encounters on the big screen. Even today it has impact, so in the day it must have been striking. The little TV screen really does not do it justice. Except, of course, the mashed potatoes -- one of the greatest scenes in film history.

    A Hollywood insider tells us that in the film that’s so far been dubbed “Bond 25”: “Bond quits the secret service, and he’s in love and gets married.”

    Ugh, considering the Daniel Craig Bond is still hung up on Vesper Lynd from Casino Royale, as that love tragedy has spread across Quantum of Solace and Spectre. I am hoping Bond 25 neatly ties up Daniel Craig's story arc while leaving enough to pass along to the next guy (like, let Blofeld live to battle the next Bond).

    And interesting they would take the (simplified) theme from OHMSS when they already did more than just a wink and a nod to it throughout Spectre.

    Maybe I was expecting a little more "Layer Cake" and a lot less "I Dreamed of Africa."

    How many of those clips had Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Judy Garland and/or Ginger Rogers? I think I saw Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in quite a few, too.

    Mickey Rooney was quite the hoofer in his youth.

    Nowadays instead of dancing we have explosions and car chases.

    Alien Covenant...subpar to Alien and Aliens but still very good. On the level with Prometheus but a tad less character development.

    I hope Ridley Scott gets a 3rd prequel in because he has in no way answered who the engineers are nor where they come from and whether they created humans. Also hasn't answered why they created Aliens or IF they actually did create them.

    Fassbender as David is finally a villain I can really hate. What a great character. He's like Kathy bates in misery x100.

    Here's the full Nicholas Brothers number jumping / splits on the staircase with Cab Calloway. It's incredible. The opening 1:30 is Calloway's scat singing, then the remainder of the clip is the brothers gradually taking over and then only doing the greatest flash dancing in film history.

    Remarkably, the brothers are in their 30s in that WW2 clip and they both lived into this century.

    I dont think he will...the movie completely bombed in the States and even WW it didnt do that great.
