Jakeem, looking ahead-(though premature)  of possible 2007 Oscar biggies, may well be Oscar winner Sofia Coppola's "The Beguiled" & again starring Nicole!) & of course "Dunkirk?" director Christopher Nolan-("DK" films) hasn't even scored a BD nod as yet   Have you seen trailer, it bleeds Oscar bait, sole debit no big stars

Modern day crowds probably exactly to see  McConaughey, Clooney or Tom Cruise though

 

& you know about Sofia Coppola's absolutely perfecto & laid back-(especially by Bill Murray)-(his very 1st shot)  already won a screenplay statuette for 2003's "Lost in Translation" ($45,>) (****-starts)   Jakeem, have you seen thuis one yet?   I mean "Lost..."

 

 

I reckon both Jack Nicholson-(l937-) & Connery-(l930-) meant it when they were quiting?   Barely see McMurphy thesedays, but Sean Connery looks happier & healthier in his life!

 

Nicholson's last-(?) is 2011's "How Do You Know"-small role) & Sean's was 2003's epic mess "League of the ExrtraordinaryGentleman" ($67,m) (*1/2)

 

Always found it strange, when stars retire before their times & yet there is the multitude of older stars  i.e. Jerryl Lewis, 91/ Tony Bennett, 91  Mel Brooks also 91, going on 60      William Shatner now 86 & many more?

 

MichaelCaine, 84 & Robert Duvall now age 81

 

 

& Hackman looks well at 87

 

 

& the legendary & all-time Academy award mc Bob Hope-(as was George Burns) booked up until, the age 100?

 

 

Thought it' unlikely that both Olivia de Havilland-(along 102 now!), that scum/rapist Kirk Douglas will return THANK GOD OR SOME KARMA)

 

THANKYOU

I recently saw "Ghost In The Shell" with Scarlett Johansson and Michael Pitt once again, the standard digital version on its 2nd. run before it departs theaters forever.  The film was released in several formats, but the 3D version isn't much different...at least to me.  Entertaining film, not the success that it was hoped to be, but for me one of the more entertaing action films of this Spring.  

 

This film had a lot of bad publicity, for several reasons.  I'm not familiar with the Manga, the story's source, so that wasn't an issue for me.  As for the casting of Scarlett, well that's "Hollywood"...and for me anyways I've always been a big fan of hers.  Big props to the music score in this film.

Fine trailers, but do you see-(though as we know it's still premature)

 

Of her snagging her 1st nomination of it & more-over Nicole again?

 

I've been oddsmaking Oscar since '82 when I was a kid & among the few things I've learned & some fellow handcappers is go by the director & it's Oscar winner Sophia Coppola-(for the wonderful "Lost in Translation)

 

 

Yep.  I love me some Kirsten Dunst.  The first of her movies I saw were  The Virgin Suicides, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Bring It On.  Liked all of those.  I saw Interview With A Vampire sometime after those.

I remember Kirsten Dunst way back from Bring It On, The Virgin Suicides, Spider Man, and Drop Dead Gorgeous.  Always one cool classy lady, hoping her newest film will be a good watch.

I have really wanted to see "King Arthur:  Legend Of The Sword".  But the word is this film is really bad, and bad in a silly way.  I had hoped for better, especially since the summer releases look a bit down for what I like.  Not much on the way this year.  I might try to catch this film anyways soon, at least the score might be good...it's done by a talented composer named Daniel Pemberton.

 

Word on "Snatched" isn't much better, but I may go see it also.
