Watched McLintock last night and True Grit tonight. I remember seeing True Grit when it first came out and somehow, I think I saw it a couple times, once in a theatre and once at the drive in. I have very, very little memory of what happened.

I just finished watching the last two of 10 episodes of the mini-series ""The Pacific". Simply put... it was great! It was just as good as "The Band of Brothers" though it was different. It got a bit more personal into the lives of the men highlighted.

Also, the war in the pacific was far more brutal than the one in europe, this was also shown in the series, how the men dealt with it.

I highly recommend it.

Where is it showing? Netflix? YouTube? Amazon Prime?

I found something I am trying very hard to not binge watch and use up all our internet data for the month in a week...

A Turkish soap opera called Winter Sun. It's a little bit like the Sopranos Turkish style. Except the bad guys are not likable at all ( I liked Tony Soprano lol)

Ha! I just finished watching the Soprano's box set. I pull it out every few years, usually in the spring. Not much on regular tv in the spring.

Now I'm watching the "My Name is Earl" box set. It's sort of like the 3 stooges living in a cheap motel. Not for everyone but I like it. Some of the dumb crap they do is just funny...

Girl With Pearl Earring

Someone gave me a poster of the painting at the same time the movie came out, but I never heard of the movie until recently. I imagine the family who gave the poster to me had seen the movie, but they made no mention of the movie to me, or I would have sought it out then. According to what I can tell from the movie, it was considered obscene for a woman's hair to be seen by a man, especially if he can see all of it. The girl whose image is used in the painting was asked to remove her cap, like a bonnet, so he could see her face better.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Leonard Nimoy is in it
That's sort of cool... I like when I watch an old movie and notice someone playing a bit part then who is now famous. I saw "To Kill a Mockingbird" a few years ago, hadn't seen it since I was a kid. To my surprise was the actor who played "Boo Radley", the mysterious character the kids are afraid of and no one ever sees until the end of the movie. The actor was a young Robert Duvall, who is now one of my all time favorite actors.

The boy and I watch those for hours on end! My favorite is when they have the Cops episodes.
