    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    They were afraid of running out at the buffet table. I know, I know ... terrible joke.
  2. I am going to record this one with a buffer. The imdb says it is 46 minutes and TCM has listed it in a 45 minute time slot.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    It's taken a rather long time to go from 'the President is mistaken' to this. Too long! Headlines in the WP.... Opinions Trump is a baldfaced liar There are no other words for it. By Colbert I. King • Read more »
  4. Sunday, June 24/25 2:15 a.m. Stalker (1979). Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men owes a little to this Tarkovsky film.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Just so long as you don't touch those tax breaks for billionaires. I'm sure the Trump supporters on medicare and medicaid will understand and take one for the gipper.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Trump plans to issue a commemorative coin to celebrate the great job of disaster relief he did with Hurricane Maria 10 months ago. It is unclear if all Puerto Ricans know about this yet as power has not been fully restored to the island. Hopefully it will show him tossing paper towels.
  9. Saturday, June 23 10 a.m. Popeye: A Dream Walking (1934). This was one of my favourite Popeye’s as a kid. 4 p.m. Get Carter (1971). With Michael Caine. I wasn’t a fan of this the first time around but perhaps I missed something. It is supposed to be a classic.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    If the thought or prospect of possible impeachment is a motivator, then hey .. It is better than lethargic defeatism.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Speaking of Central Park, in front of the press yesterday ahead of his cabinet meeting billionaire by inheritance Donald Trump sat with arms folded and said that the journey (on foot) from Guatemala through Mexico to the U.S. border by the children seeking asylum was like a walk through Central Park. My understanding is that the journey takes about 5 months.
  13. I had to go to the imdb to refresh my memory of Chronicle of Poor Lovers by Carlo Lizzani and in doing so realized that there were two very good reviews that describe the film better than I could. So rather than crib from the reviews here they are in part ... Italian EastEnders federovsky26 May 2017 Portrait of a working class community in Florence in the 1920s as the Fascists tighten their grip on society. It's set in a narrow street populated by market traders, cobblers, gossips, unfaithful wives, gangsters, with an old matriarch overseeing things from her window and the local Fascist on patrol down below. Mainly it follows the fortunes of three marriagable young women and their lovers, with, at the centre of the film, a brutal night of assassinations which changes the community forever. It's quite dialogue-heavy - there's barely a moment without subtitles on the screen - and there's little humour, but it's well made and is suffused with a non-judgemental humanism that prevents things getting too morose. Mastroianni stands out among the cast, which includes an Olympic gold medalist discus thrower as a blacksmith. Particularly interesting to see a non-touristic side of Florence, when the place had a real lived-in feel. Half-baked rendition of a good novel Vice_426 July 2003 ...The cast too is full of very good players, both famous or soon-to-be famous, like Mastroianni, Ferrero, Lualdi and Greco, and remarkable features by some lesser known but noteworthy presences such as Giuliano Montaldo (which later will acquire his own fame as movie director), and Wanda Capodaglio, unrivaled queen of the Italian stage for nearly 50 years, who plays the unnamed "Lady Loanshark". Adolfo Consolini, a famous Italian athlete, twice world record holder and 1948 Olympic champion of discus throw, very appropriately lends his well-built body to the character of Maciste.
