President Trump's Joint Address To Congress 2017

Yeah, yeah, it's not a State of the Union...but.

I didn't agree with every point and position made, but overall President Trump did very well tonight. I was especially though the emphasis on merit based immigration was a YUGE shift in the right direction.

The emotional moment of the speech was addressing and recognizing the sacrifice of Carryn Owens, wife of slain Navy Seal Ryan Owens. That was a powerful moment. My prayers and condolences to the Owens family.

Democrats refused to applaud putting American first. What a surprise. A few Democrat "leaders" also sat stone faced during the Owens tribute.

Hollywood: O.J. "Moonlight" Simpson Soon To Be Released From Prison?

Not that there is anything wrong with being gay (so what if OJ likes the transsexuals in prison)..but the un-convicted murderer part might be a downer for a comedy movie. But what about O.J. Simpson coming back for gay black drama? O.J.'s dad was a drag performer so he knows the drill.  Now that he is getting out of prison, maybe someone can spin O.J's story into the next "Moonlight"?

Time for Trump To Put On The Wonk Suit?

I agree with Roger on this. Trump would be wise to lay out a wonkish plan.

The Oscars Are Dead...

I am really not into getting lectured by privileged, spoiled, over-paid, and over rated Asshats. So I am going to pass.

I would not mind watching the Odd Couple movie (even the tv show) or some other movie or tv show tonight.

The Odd Couple by the way got nominated in 1969 for best adapted material and best editing but did not win an Oscar.  Bullitt won for editing (fair enough) but the Lion in Winter won for adapted screenplay? Blah.

I have watched many of the nominated movies this year. They are mostly ok (not exceptionally great). I did reviews: La La Land, Arrival, Fences, Hell and High Water, Lion, Hacksaw Ridge, Manchester by the Sea.

My favorites were Hacksaw Ridge and Hell and High Water. My prediction is those films will hold up over time. And it is an outrage probably neither one will win tonight. Hell, Silence did not even get nominated.

I have not seen Moonlight, but I am sure Trooper York will give us a review.  I do want to see Hidden Figures.

Manchester by the Sea: A Review

I finally saw Manchester by the Sea. Casey Affleck's performance is exceptional. I was also very impressed with Lucas Hedges' performance. The film itself, while very good in exploring dealing with grief, has some writing and stylistic flaws (although I thought the dialog between the characters was well done). This is one of those films you can't get into without giving it all away. So rather than do that, I will recommend you go out to see it or rent it.  

Rotten Tomatoes: Manchester by the Sea
