    Long live Robert Redford! Nice All is Lost/Gravity discussion (and pic)…

    Long live Robert Redford! Cuaron should make Gravity 2 starring Redford and James Franco (in character as Alien.)

    Mike missed his calling – should have been a Shakespearean actor, or audio book narrator. :)

    My favorite documentary of the year: Blackfish. http://npl.worldcat.org/oclc/858949570
    I hope they win the Oscar and that 30 seconds of airtime during the acceptance speech!

  4. Phil K. says:

    Crystal -Yes Blackfish sure was an eye opener and excellent documentary. Made me sad, angry and annoyed; I’m sure a lot of places that use animals may have similar dark sides, unfortunately.
