A Few Movie Thoughts
In my life I have learned that there a few things that hold true. Cub fans are serious masochists, the Olympics were better when they came every four years and Red Sox fans were blessed with the appearance of an aberration similar to Halley’s Comet. Once every hundred years or so they win a championship.
I also believe with perfect faith that LA will again experience a sports year like 1988 in which the Dodgers and Lakers won the championship and even the Kings were exceptionally competitive.
That brings me to the topic of the moment, movies. David smartly remarked that a person’s taste in movies can be quite revealing about whether they might be the kind of people you want to hang out with.

I won’t rehash the entire thing here, but suffice it to say that I am still irked about something. During the past few years we have been inundated with remakes of old movies. Very few of them have been any good. With all of the so called creative people around you would think that we might see something new.
If I remember I’ll have to come up with a post that expands upon this further.
