Hello Tuesday! Temps here are supposed to climb into the upper 30s (F). Tomorrow into the 40s (F). And by Thursday will be in the 50s (F). Now, how's that for a rebound from the Cyclone Bomb?
Plans were to go see Babylon this evening. They've changed. It opened poorly. That doesn't usually phase me, what does is that it has a 3 hour + running time. Another thing: the film was advertised more as a comedy with dramatic moments and that's wrong. It's an all out drama, little comedy, about the problems Hollywood dealt with in the switch from silent films to talkies. I'm thinking someone should have told Damian Chazelle there's already been a really super movie made about that time. It's a little thing called "Singin' in the Rain."
The NYT has a good list of people who died during 2022, that includes many you wouldn't know about. One of those mentioned was Tim Considine, who played Frank Hardy, of the Hardy Boys on Disney's Micky Mouse Club, a long, long, time ago. I was 6 years old at the time, and yes, I did love the Hardy Boys. Joe Hardy was played by Tommy Kirk, a Disney regular until they found out he was gay and kicked him out.
