Karen Black who was probably best known for her role in " Five Easy Pieces " has passed away at age 75. She played opposite Jack Nicholson in that film and was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for that part.
--- Today I should mention another interesting film because of the passing of a well known figure. Ron Howard directed the movie " Frost Nixon " with Michael Sheen and Frank Langella in the main roles. David Frost was the real life TV host that the film was based on and he has passed away at age 74.
Boy, Michael Sheen certainly looks different there than he did in the Underworld series!
I just watched The Grandmaster. It was awesome!!

And speaking of The Blue Lagoon, linux, that also spawned the following (starring Phoebe Cates and Willie Aames):
--- Thanks for the recent posts.
Thanks AndyC for the info. I had the chance to see " The Blue Lagoon " years ago but I missed the film with Phoebe Cates and Willie Aames. Of course Aames was in the cast of " Eight Is Enough " which ran on TV for years.
" Nobody's Fool ", no not me, it's a movie with Paul Newman. Indeed it is a little jewel of a film and also features Jessica Tandy, Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis.
Of course Aames was in the cast of " Eight Is Enough " which ran on TV for years.
Yeah, along with that annoying little kid who ran around for about 5 years wearing a T-shirt with a big target on it (talk about tempting fate).
Thanks for the post AndyC. Now that you mention it I do remember that little kid.
The lady who played the Mom in that TV series was also in a nice movie entitled " Tender Mercies " with Robert Duvall ( I've forgotten the name of some of the other players ). It was not a big budget film but I quite enjoyed it.
Cab........ If you like films/music/sports and know lots of famous faces new and old why not test your skill on my Guess Who? thread. Everyone is welcome, coffee and a chocolate biscuit for new members awaits.
We bit the bullet & rented a couple of flicks from Redbox. Well, 1 out of 2 isn't so bad (entertainment-wise). Django Unchained was a real piece of garbage...one of the worst I've ever seen. Quentin Tarantino is useless. OTOH, World War Z wasn't too bad at all. It was very tense, except for the lame-o ending. Normally, I'm not a big Brad Pitt fan, but this time it wasn't too bad...
Thanks for the new posts.
Kayak21: Thanks for the info but I'm still using my old computer and it is not working too well so I'm lucky if it sends out the odd post.
Javan64: Thanks for the update, I'll have to track down WW Z when I get a chance.
You're welcome. Hope you get your PC sorted out soon.
I liked Pulp Fiction but his movies since then have all been pulp. Often happens, these Hollywood folk get one or two hits and then they coast for the rest of their lives. Adam Sandler hasn't been funny since the 90's but people still go to see his movies.
I did however like Cristoph Waltz's performace in Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. He played a very chilling villain, and ought to get more big roles.
--- Thanks for the new posts.
Kayak21: What I need is to change all of the equipment here and update everything, sooner or later I guess.
Ivandh: I luved Adam Sandler in " Happy Gilmore " and " Anger Management " was not bad but as you mentioned he has lost it a bit over the years.
