Robert Zemeckis wisely recognizes that the heist is not the point of the story. The walk itself is beautiful. The creative team pays full homage to that act, and they’ll make you believe it too.
The bottom line: Manages sublime fan service and (surprisingly) moves the characters forward, at last. I thought the legendary “last four words” were perfect closure.
The Richard Rodgers Theatre is not The Cotton Club; its performers should not be similarly cowed. As Garrison Keillor sung in his definitive song about Newt Gingrich: “Artists always have the final say.”
Most election seasons end with a call for unity, but this isn’t the time for unity. This is when the Resistance begins. That term came to me in the shower, then appeared in my Inbox from two other friends. We need to reinvigorate and support a free press. We need to get religion out of politics, for good this time. We need to embrace diversity, and help those who need helping. We need to make sure there’s enough for everyone.
Frodo Baggins was a ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a bad eye, a bum shoulder and a heart so big it finally broke. He lived March 15, 2009 until October 22, 2016.
Since we’ve been married, you’re a wonderful mother to our girl and two dogs, and our political and spiritual views have evolved together – something that doesn’t always happen. I respect you and I have no doubt about the respect others have for you – something I didn’t know would become important to me, way back in 1997.
Here’s a thought experiment: How much different would the 2016 U.S. presidential election be without social media? If the campaigns happened in 1980, or better yet, 1880?
Born To Run is really The Essential Bruce Springsteen, by His Hand and in His Voice (even if it isn’t, and it probably is; even if – and because – it could use a stronger editor.) What a book – a tour de force rock ‘n’ roll memoir/deconstruction. Here’s the rock star who decided he WOULDN’T die before he got old, because he sorta liked living.
Ant Man was produced by Marvel cum Disney – it’s a surprisingly well-crafted piece of entertainment junk food that doesn’t quite evaporate afterward; it sits uneasy in the psychic gut, and you wonder why you kept going long after you knew you should quit.
Overall, Sazerac is not as edgy as many ryes – it’s a more refined experience. If rye is a drink for summer evenings, this suggests Indian summer.
