The Outsiders

Well, there are some movies I haven’t seen. “The Outsiders” is one of them.

There was a post on Facebook and I happen to mention that I hadn’t seen it… oh cow, you would think I ran over a puppy or something. I was mocked for not seeing that movie.

Since it is the 35th anniversary of when that movie came out, I guess I can now make an effort to watch it.

Once I watch, I’ll post my review… it will be 35 years overdue.


I saw this and I really need to go down the list and get rid of the things I don’t need.

When and if I move again, I will not move junk across State lines again

The first things that need to go:

  1. Towels with holes
  2. Movies I don’t watch
  3. Old magazines
  4. And God forbid… Excess Tupperware/plastic containers

Song of the Day

I have loved songs from movies. This has to be in my Top 5 favorite songs from a movie.

“God Is Trying To Tell Me Something” from The Color Purple.

I couldn’t share this song, without sharing one of the greatest scenes from a movie.

Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water…

I’m going to go with some friends to go see “Jaws” at the Majestic Theatre on January 26th. And I can’t wait.

It’s going to be the first time that I’ve ever seen a movie and an symphony playing at the same time. What a movie to have my first experience with.

Hopefully this will be the first of many more to see.

I remember the first time I saw this movie. It was at the Genesee Valley Theaters in my hometown of Flint. I went with my mom, sister, my mom’s cousin and her two daughters. We all sat in the same row and no one wanted to sit next to the wall that had a giant curtain covering it. I think we were all afraid something was going to pop out from behind the curtain.

I remember us being glued to the screen just watching what was going to happen. I think one of us jumped when the head popped out from the sunken boat. Popcorn went flying in the air.

It’s one of my favorite memories from my youth. Now I get to relive it with some great friends and in a great place like the Majestic. Hopefully this time, no popcorn will be going flying in the air.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

2017 is coming to and end and the videos of the entertainers, leaders and icons that we lost this year are coming out.

Here is one from Turner Movie Classics.
