    Watched The Railway Man last night; it was the story of a British soldier, captured by the Japanese in Singapore, and beaten and tortured by a particular Japanese officer. He finds out the officer is still alive after the war, and he hunts him down with revenge in mind. His wife, Nicole Kidman, is forever by his side. It is based on a true story, and other than the accents being such that the closed caption option was necessary, I rated it good to very good.

    Eraserhead

    Noticed another late night movie entitled Eraserhead...took a quick peek, and was weirded out! About 10 minutes and I was done. It was as bizarre as the trailer. At least Dr. Pimple Popper makes sense!

    I rented Eraserhead when it came out on VHS, and it sucked big time.

    I did a quick check, and it's rated #30 in the list of all time favorite cult films. I suppose a couple of snorts, a dip or two and maybe a couple tokes and you could watch it and pay attention (and I use that word loosely).

    Watched The Mule with Clint Eastwood last night. Although it is captivating and "watchable", I felt like there was a bit of something missing in the telling of the story. I think because it was centered on the character played by Eastwood, and the development of the rest of the characters was a bit lacking. In any case, I would rate it "good", and give it maybe a 7 out of 10. His real daughter played his daughter in the movie. There is also an interesting story behind the song played at the last of the movie, entitled "Don't let the old Man in" written and played by Toby Keith. I'll see if I can find it.

    I saw "The Mule" in the theater. It was a good movie, but I probably would have enjoyed it more if I'd read about the real guy the movie was about before I saw the movie. It was a little hard to know what was going on at times, but reading the story filled in those gaps... afterwards.

    Tough to see ol' Clint as old as he is now, but happy to see him still acting and directing. He just turned 89 a few weeks ago.

    I watched a copy someone posted on Youtube a couple of years ago. I kinda liked it. It was definitely... uh... different.

    Rowdy Yates is 89 now!? Good grief, time flies.

    That is a polite understatement.
