And all this time I thought Mark Wahlberg was rescued and that's how he could keep making movies

Conspiracy theory yesterday. First up was a movie that caught my eye at Netflix, JFK: The Smoking Gun. Excellent movie with just a couple slow parts. No doubt in my mind that if the facts they were presenting were indeed facts, there were two different shooters. Bullets just don't make holes smaller than their caliber.
And then recommended to me because I watched that was Interview with the Assassin. This one was fiction, but done up like Blair Witch. I found it entertaining and again thought provoking.

I totally realize that. it is just tjat most of the movie was based on conjecture. Tjey could have died when the girst wave hit. But like I said I enjoyed the movie.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon listening to (while I was working around the apartment) and not really watching, "Father of the Bride, Parts I and II". I just wanted something on that didn't require my attention as I have seen it a few times in the past.

I watched (again) the documentary Herb and Dorothy. It's too bad that it has no closed captioning and my hearing has become worse than when I first watched it years ago.

But it's a heartwarming story: Rotten Tomatoes gave this short blurb which can't begin to give the flavor of this older couple in their little apartment in NYC, with their cat, and with paintings/drawings literally all over the place, even under the bed.

"The film takes a close look at the historical gift project by the legendary art collector couple, Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, and its impact on art communities around America. Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, a former postal clerk and a librarian, built a world-class collection of Minimal and Conceptual Art with their modest salaries. Over 2000 works were packed into their small NYC apartment, but they never sold a piece for profit. In 1992, they decided to transfer the entire collection to the National Gallery of Art, making headlines worldwide. (c) Fine Line

I remember reading an article about them a while back. Quite a story.

You would enjoy the documentary, I'm sure, as long as you don't need subtitles/closed captions.

Watched a movie from the 70's, Without a Trace with Judd Hirsch. A very good movie with some good acting, a good change of pace

Oblivion again. The more I see it the more nuances I notice.
This movie is really well put together.

BTW, Jesse Stone alert on Hallmark tomorrow.

Pac, how many JS movies did Hallmark make? I think I have seen four. But I know there were more than four books written.
