He did one movie.


Conrad was a pretty crappy
actor, he played himself.
He was handsome and athletic,
and happened to be an actor.

WW West was hugely entertaining
55 years ago, it's almost
unwatchable now. Filmed
mostly on sets, with hokey
storylines and mediocre acting.
I tried watching an ep a few years
ago and lasted 15 min.

Finally saw the Dark Tower movie. Stephen
King truly is a whore for money. This pitiful
piece of garbage took bits and pieces out
of all the books glued them together and
gave us a big nothing burger. Basically it's
Matthew McConaughey is the evil guy,
kicking the Gunslingers ass throughout
the entire movie until the last five minutes.
McConaughey's Man in Black is ahead of
the Gunslinger every step of the way and
makes a fool out of him at every turn. The
books were not like this at all. And Matthew
McConaughey was terrible, it's like he was
doing a caricature of Christopher Walken
in Prophecy. Just stupid.

Not sure what their criteria for making the In Memoriam reel are, other than thinking it is for people who died since the last in memoriam reel, not limited to people who died in the year previous to the current one, but here it is.

Apparently Luke Perry, Tim Conway, and a few others were left out

Conservative Blaze TV host John Miller tweeted

"A man named Bong Joon Ho wins #Oscar for best original screenplay over Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917.
Acceptance speech was: “GREAT HONOR. THANK YOU.”
Then he proceeds to give the rest of his speech in Korean.
These people are the destruction of America."

WTF
Its just a movie that won an award. How does he come up with "destruction of America" ??????
Talk about crazy.

Dark Tower cost $60mil to make
and looked it. Horrible production
values. Too much CGI, not
enough story. It grossed $118mil,
so it lost money.

I watched Parasite
It was a really good movie
I'm actually surprised this won Best Pic
Its very entertaining and a bit over the top
The subtitles didn't bother me at all.
Very well paced as you always want to see what happens next. The cinematography was really beautiful.
Weirdest scene, when the new housekeeper goes down the basement to see what the old housekeeper is up to and she's horizontal trying to open something.
Gets pretty out there from that point.
Its a story all cultures can relate to because all cultures have the rich poor dichotomy.
Overall, its was an enjoyable 2 hours. Four out of 5 stars

I still find Hogan's Heroes funny. But what shows aren't somewhat dated?


This is an interesting aerial shot
of the back lot of DesiLu Studios
in 1965. You can see the set of
Hogans Heroes, Gomer Pyle,
Andy Griffith Show. There's a
Western town and other sets
all on 40 acres. Mayberry
was orig Atlanta in Gone
With the Wind, they just
updated the buildings.
