OT: Over and Over

Recommended Posts

On top of the pandemic, I've now lived through a 5.7 magnitude earthquake (biggest in 30 years in Utah, apparently).  Who needs to watch movies?  Real life is weird enough.

 

On a related note, does anyone else live in Northern Utah?  I've only been here three weeks.

Morning movie report: Couldn't find any Brad Pitt to watch so went to another favorite, Jeff Bridges and watched "Bad Times at the El Royale" last night. It was pretty good and long enough to pass some time. It was not a Tarantino film but seemed like one since it was …..a little violent. It didn't make my top five Bridges movies though. If anyone is interested they are 1. The Big Lebowski, 2. Hell or High Water, 3. True Grit, 4. Seventh Son, 5. Blown Away.

I forgot the Big Lebowski, Miller’s Crossing, Fargo and Blood Simple on my list.  The Coen brothers had to write the “Dude” with Jeff Bridges in mind!

Better choice, and one I have not yet seen myself. It was directed by Michael Cimino who was good, then bad. And it also has two more of my favorites, Clint Eastwood and Gary Busey.                  https://journalstar.com/entertainment/books/review-busey-book-goes-beyond-biography/article_c03a2b91-1783-5b03-9386-243331457066.html

Guilty pleasure movies!

     Under Siege-  Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey revel as bad guys

     The old Esther Williams swimming movies, to quote Brent Musberger, “Whoa,          what a beautiful woman!”
