Werthie is usually spot on on his film reviews. I'll wait for a theater where I can get my senior discount cause I'm cheap.

going to be very entertaining

Great review! I would see the movie regardless of what the critics say. The fact it gets praise is the proverbial icing on the cake.

may not be 100% authentici ( if it would it would probably be a boring documentary) but it will be funny, action packed, touching and thrilling

Just got into a heated argument with my dad (he loves to spar in the worst way) about going to see the preview on Septemeber 14th. He says it's too far downtown yet he plans to drive 90 miles back to Toronto in his minivan. He wanted to know the ticket price and I should not have told him it's $85. He said forget it despite my buying. He grew up in the depression. He has way better money sense than me. Mine is a time thing because we never know how long we have above ground. It is all about balancing finances versus life experiences.

There she's parked beside the curb

You know I agree and respect your fathers and your views

But having said that, my father was also the same as yours.

Got to the point he did not want to leave the house or spend money on unnecessary items.

Once I saw this pattern I took a very different approach with him.

If we had to go somewhere I would not tell him how far, I would mention "just a few minutes way". Once in the car we would talk all the way to our destination.  The travel time would be a non issue  and before he knew it we had arrived at our destination.

As far as price at a restaurant, vacation or an event, I am ashamed to say I would flat out lie to him. He would ask how much for a football game?  I would relate the price to when he was much younger and reply eight dollars for entry. In reality it was over ten times the amount. Then and only then he would enjoy outings, food, vacations and yes even the two dollar movies that I would take him to see...

Thank you for sharing, Tony. You have much wisdom in your approach to life.  Sometimes tomorrow means never but in this case he simply doesn't want to go. He wants to hold out to November. So be it.

Maybe you should get him a subscription to Netflix for his birthday or Christmas.   Tons of TV and movies, and "Hey Dad, it's all free. They had a special on the internet."

Good morning,  one of my favourite movies is Ferris Bhueller Day Off. In that movie he qoutes " Life moves pretty fast. If you donít stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. "

That is the issue with us humans, "we" think "we" have time ... see the movie. Enjoy it for what is...entertainment

I just saw the trailer last night... the movie should be fun. Definitely looking forward to it.
I thought that the quote from Henry "the Deuce" saying it's not the first time that Ford has been to war could have been the basis for the name of the documentary movie "the 24 Hour War"?

The key here is communicating "complimentary or free"

Just curious, how far is the Telluride Film Festival from the Shelby American Collection?   8)

Aloha Don,

Attached are directions to Telluride.  What we find unusual is that  in Colorado it takes over two hours to drive 85 miles.

Let's see how long it takes to drive 80 miles in the great  State of Florida;

How long does it take to go 80 miles if you're going 80mph? The answer is simple.

80 miles is the about half the width of Florida. Florida is where Disney world is.

Disney world is where Mickey Mouse lives. Mickey Mouse is in many movies.

Movies are made in Hollywood, California.

California is where the gold rush happened. Often, gold rushers would find a single gold nugget.

Obviously gold is good because it has a monetary value.

We also know that time is money. How much money is one gold nugget worth?

One hour. And there is your answer.

Something peculiar about Colorado...
