paulh, the apocalypse is coming, it's just late

I saw Eastwood in "Paint your wagon" and "Any which way but loose." Musicals and comedies are my preferred genres. smiley - smiley Eastwood made a couple movies about Iwo Jima, one from the Allies' point of view, the other from that of the Japanese. I saw the first but not the second. War movies are not my favorite genre, though I made exceptions for "Casablanca" and "1917." Sometimes the local multiplex doesn't have any other decent choices smiley - shrug. Wayne I only ever saw once: in "Guns of Navarone." The library I worked in screened it, so it was free.

I remember sensitivity training, which encouraged people to put themselves in the shoes of others. It's best if this is mutual.

paulh, the apocalypse is coming, it's just late

Looking at my life in terms of what I've avoided seems destined to increase the likelihood of having regrets. Why not try something I haven't tried before? There used to be people who tried to argue that everyone should avoid movies with Tom Cruise in them. But what if, by pure accident, Cruise happened to be in a really great movie that I would regret not having seen? I have a mind of my own, I have intelligence, why shouldn't I take the chance that someone I don't much like because of his private life might defy the odds and give a great performance? (This is not the insanity definition. I wouldn't be expecting the *same* result, just the possibility of a better one. There would need to be a lot going for this outcome, of course.)

Tom Cruise made a very good movie. It's called 'Valkyrie'.
