    The Double Man (1967) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061594/ A complicated cold war espionage thriller set in the Austrian Alps involving CIA and Russian agents. If the sweeping aerial snow capped, snow laden skiing sequences look somewhat familiar, it's because the cameraman for this film is also the same cameraman who would go on to film the skiing sequences in the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969). This film is also actress Britt Ekland's second major movie role, she will go on to become a Bond Girl in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974). This was one of the many 60's movies that were James Bond copies and it's also one of the better ones - featuring a tight, complex plot and decent action sequences. 3.75/5

    I don't drink much anymore so I haven't even looked for it when I go to the grocery store. You can't drink when you have kids. Every now and then I may have a glass of wine (well, they take a wine glass and fill it half way but on the menu it's listed as wine by the glass) with dinner at a nice sit down restaurant but that's not very often: maybe once every couple of months. Most of the restaurants we take our kids to do not serve alcohol anyway and even if some of them do, we hardly ever order any.

    Cleveland Browns just won their first game in 635 days. How sad!

    Watching the NYJ vs CLE game. What is with all these new stupid rules? CLE WR drops a pass intended for him near the sideline. A NYJ defender picks up the dropped ball and hands it to him. The NYJ defender gets called for unsportsmanlike conduct which results in an automatic first down for CLE. CLE QB fumbles the ball while trying to avoid being sacked, a CLE lineman picks up the ball and runs it forward for 9 yards. The 9 yards gain is nullified because in minutes after a 2 minute warning, a fumble can't be return by the offense for yards gained unless it's the person who fumbled it that did the return. It is in response to this play: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Roller_(American_football) NYJ RB scores a TD. He throws the ball into the audience. He gets called for unsportsmanlike conduct and a 15 yards penalty is added on the ensuing kickoff. What kind of rules are these? Then you have all these new rules where you can't hit the QB pretty much in every which way (no using the helmet, no using the shoulder) or you will get called for roughing the passer or unsportsmanline conduct.

    I see this annoying commercial in every NFL football game broadcast I've watched so far this season.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/cary-fukunaga-direct-james-bond-25-1145656 They went from Danny Boyle to this guy. That tells me Broccoli and Wilson want to be the only ones with creative input so they did anything possible to make it difficult for Boyle so he would quit. So they picked this Fukunaga guy, a small time director with very minimal qualification so he can be a YES man and do exactly what Broccoli and Wilson want. Skyfall and Spectre and Quantum of Solace, I don't care how many gamillions they earned combined and how many records they broke in the James Bond Films Franchise history were just very marginal. I like Craig but his Bond films after Casino Royale were just not very good. Heck!! Even Brosnan had 2 decent Bond films before it all went downhill for him with The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day. Well I guess his guy is a better choice than the other director the Bond producers were looking at: a lady named S.J. Clarkson who has no experience directing movies. She has only done TV series episode and she has been hired to direct the next Star Trek film. With a female director, Star Trek will truly gone where no man has one before. As long as she leaves her personal social justice warrior political agenda and views and feminist interpretation out of the screenplay and movie, it should be okay.

    Why is it taking Cameron so long to make Avatar 2? Supposedly he is making Avatar 2 and 3 and 4 for almost 10 years now and by the time they are released, it will be 2020, 2021, 2024 and 2025, by the tentative schedule right now - if no one dies before then. Also why is True Lies and The Abyss not on Blu-Ray? Cameron is such a champion of the newest latest state of the art video technology and yet 2 of his biggest movies ever are not on Blu-Ray. He has been promising them forever. We are now on 4K and beyond. By the time those 2 films are on Blu-Ray, people will have moved on like they moved away from VHS to DVD and then from DVD to Blu-Ray.

    The Predator (2018) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3829266/ This excruciating slow burn torture stinker takes its place among the ranks of some of "the most anticipated sequels which became some of the worse sequels ever" with plenty of other sequel stinker fails to keep it company. Stinkers like Independence Day: Resurgence, Speed 2: Cruise Control, Another 48 HRS., The Matrix Revolutions, Jaws The Revenge, Terminator Genisys, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Spider-Man 3, Batman & Robin, The Godfather Part III and Robocop 3. The story is confusing and the intention and motive of the new Predator is never fully explained. The acting by every actors and 2 actresses (Olivia Munn, Yvonne Stravoski) sucks. But you really can't blame them 100% for it. They didn't have much of a script to work with. The dialogue was so dumb, I would bet $1 that a retard wrote it. The action sequences were uninteresting and unexciting. Every character was just window dressing put in place for The Predator to slice, dice, decapitate, maim, pull apart in two or three pieces and gored a 1000 ways by a multitude of alien bladed and laser weapons. One of the first ideas for this film was to bring back Arnold but for whatever reasons, the studio decided to shelve it. My only explanation for that is they didn't want to pay whatever salary Arnold commands. Big mistake! You want a movie that brings in big box office returns, you have to pay for the big star!! You got to spend money to make money!! Very strange that this is written by Shane Black, the same acclaimed Hollywood screenwriter who wrote 4 Lethal Weapon films, Iron Man 3, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Last Boy Scout; and he also played one of the members of Arnold Schwarzenegger commandos team in Predator 1987. Considering that it's been 8 years since the last entry in the Predator franchise, there is absolutely no excuse for the way this movie turned out. Twentieth Century Fox and their powers that be had plenty of time to put out a quality product and they failed. 2/5

    I hope this will help some of the poor unfortunate folks affected by this natural disaster. The death toll caused by Hurricane Florence is climbing.

    But the crappy reality shows just keep going and going because people are dumb and that's the only entertainment their little narrow warped brains can understand. Look at the junk with the Kardashians. How long now? 11 years? I have never seen one episode nor do I care to even if you paid me to. Or The Bachelor, 16 years now!
