and that's a great movie. The kind of thing that one can't "put down" unless they have to. Did about 48 minutes of it on Tuesday and finished it this morning.
Edward Fox is great in this. Nominated for the Best Film Editing Oscar. I also liked the 1997 remake The Jackal (1997) with Bruce Willis.

Both flicks were the first times I saw either.

I guess I am one of the few who paid to see John Carter and enjoyed it
Steampunk design mashed w/early Star Trek

I have the remake in the library and actually started it the other week....but feel asleep soon into it. It will probably eventually be watched but there are so many, many movies in the library so probably at least not for a week for a DIE SPY! Tuesday.

If you say so on the steampunk. As it is, I have read some of the books, I think my first was when I was 13 or so with #8 Swords of Mars and I am currently part way through another. I think I have all or almost all of the paper backs both in interest of the concept and because Michael Whelan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Whelan did the cover illustration of one publication series. Mr. Whelan was a term paper focus in one of my undergraduate degrees.

In any event, I am familiar with the story. Granted, the movie twisted some parts of it but then again, when it came to Dejah Thoris, they hit her dead center.

The other thing is that Heinlein's "The Number of the Beast" is a favorite book so with that, I'm already very much into the story, one way or another.

Of course, Heinlein's "D.T." and Burroughs' "DT" are worlds apart.

Sicario or Scicaro or Scicaro? it was great...even without Emily Blunt.
Benicio's hair cut is the best!

Sicario -- Day of the Soldado
Very good but not as good as first one IMO
And a hook I must admit I didn't see coming but totally realistic in the context
Definitely at least one to come and maybe more

I find it odd...I didn't know how to spell the title of the Movie...But I did the gorgeous Benicio's....
Very pertinent movie about the Mexican border!!!!
I must say I was surprised when they showed a shot Mexico City with such tall and beautiful skyscrapers.

Default Vietnam

Just finishing up a ten part, 18 hour documentary on Vietnam, by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick. I have been just glued to this doc.
They also do a five hour, three part documentary on prohibition, titled "Prohibition".
This team of Burns & Novick are absolutely incredible in their depth and portrayal of the sentiments of Americans during these pivotal events in our nation's history. These are must watch, and you can find them on Netflix, and most likely on DVD.
