Well, there's always a chance you'll be disappointed when you catch aging legends. But at least you saw Al Green!

Thanks for sharing. It is getting difficult to find World War II veterans ... but they're out there.

The Lions finished rather well. Consider the second half of the season one big moral victory!

Ha. I've been meaning to post a comment for a while, too.

A reader writes:

"I thought "Walk the Line," the Johnny Cash biopic of a few years ago, was also very good, including an Oscar-winning performance by Reese Witherspoon. The movie got several other nominations too, I believe."

Walk the Line is a good movie. So is Ray, the similarly-structured Ray Charles biopic. But they don't make my top five, mainly because the performances are great, but the actual movies that surround them somewhat mediocre.

I love the Ramones. But I can't say that they're better than the Beatles and keep a straight face.

My friend Scott, who spent about 10 years at Harvard, tells me: Harvard's pretty difficult to depict, I think, because it is a lot of different places. I didn't feel much of a unity there -- there are bluebloods and radicals and confused mother--- like me."

The Princess Bride has a lot of fans. Some comments from readers:

"The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies! I used to have a copy and watched it so much that I've almost memorized the whole thing. Now I rent it every couple of years and it's always hilarious. My favorite lines:

[Looking down the cliff, as the Man in Black climbs toward them]
Vizzini: He's gaining on us? Inconceivable!
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

"Just showed it to our church youth group kids tonight. It's a classic."

"This is my fiancé's ALL TIME favorite movie. One of our favorites "lines" is the simple 'INCONCEIVABLE' that Vizzini would utter and every once in a while my fiancé will repeat this with the lisp and all and usually only he and I are in on the 'joke.'"

"We love the princess bride so much! We love too many parts to say. but if we had to pick one line it might be 'stop it, I mean it. anybody want a peanut?' It gets said here a lot like that. We know that's not how it goes really but that's how it goes here. almost everyday somebody says something from it."

I'm told I should also add Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind to my list of dreaming movies. Gondry's film The Science of Sleep is also worth a look.
