Well, here’s the trailer for Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Story. It looks great, although some of the casting choices seem odd. To be honest, this is like someone remaking The Godfather. If anyone could pull it off, it would be Spielberg, but I have to ask: why?
RIP Ned Beatty

Popcorn is not optional.
It’s too bad they didn’t include characters from the X-Men universe.
For Star Wars Day, here is the video tribute to Carrie Fisher, our Princess Leia.
I originally made this tribute to Star Wars for my friend Coleen.
I had made one earlier, but I never mentioned Coleen. (Though I don’t even know if she reads my blog!)
The Tonight Show (Jimmy Fallon & the Roots), as well as the cast of The Force Awakens, takes on the Star Wars theme.
Thank you to my sister Kathie for turning me on this.

Philip Seymour Hoffman played legendary rock critic Lester Bangs in the classic film Almost Famous (2000), written & directed by Cameron Crowe. This video is a compilation of Hoffman’s scenes with William (Patrick Fugit), a stand-in for Crowe, who became a music critic for Rolling Stone when he was 15. These scenes are searing and true. If you’re uncool, you’ll understand.
Watch this fun deleted scene from the classic film Almost Famous. Frances McDormand’s face is a wonder to watch.
