  1. The music in my head is apparently "A Little Priest" from Sweeney Todd. It's alternating between the Len Cariou/Angela Lansbury and the Michael Cerveris/Patty LuPone versions, for some reason. I'm starting to play Turn of a Friendly Card to clean it out.
  2. I needed something calming, and Simon & Garfunkel wasn't cutting it.
  3. The line of cars waiting to get in to our parking lot for the food bank distribution already stretches around the block. I’m trying not to cry.
  4. “There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. … What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, mankind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.”
  5. It's already started on several marquees of closed casinos around town, though it's most likely a continuation of the #VegasStrong tag after the 2017 shooting event.
  6. Gaslight: Classic suspense film starring Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer, and Joseph Cotton (and a very young Angela Lansbury in her first screen role). The disc is a Warner Archive release, and the transfer is excellent. (Blu-ray)
  7. It was originally shot using Panavision cameras, and the 4:3 was actually a crop, at least from what I can find online. My set of the original Battlestar Galactica on blu-ray included discs for both 4:3 and 16:9, so I would agree with you that it would be nice to have both.
  8. V: The Original Miniseries: A bit of a nostalgia watch, but I still enjoy it. Video and sound quality were very good, and the presentation is in a 16x9 aspect ratio. (Blu-ray)
  9. The limiting factor is the 1980-1981 time frame. If we aren't limiting the search to that time frame, it opens up a wealth of materials. Much of the Incredibles soundtrack has a James Bond feel. There are chunks of the new Intrada release of the Howard the Duck* soundtrack by John Barry that would work very well. The track, "Duck Bond I Presume" is just a feather away from James Bond (on purpose), for example. A more up-tempo song would be "History Repeating" by the Propellerheads (from 1997). As a bonus, it features Shirley Bassey the vocalist on "Goldfinger", "Diamonds Are Forever", and "Moonraker", And this song's been stuck in my head since reading the original post: *John Barry, is, of course, the person responsible for 11 of the first 14 James Bond film soundtracks, and arranged the James Bond Theme in the first Bond film, Dr. No.
  10. Birdman: An actor known for playing a superhero attempts a Broadway play. Odd, but enjoyable. (Netflix blu-ray) La La Land: Gorgeous love letter to the golden age of musicals. (Netflix blu-ray) Dirty Harry: My Mom was a big Clint Eastwood fan, and she would always watch his movies when they came on TV. So, this is a nostalgia watch for multiple reasons for me. (Netflix) Hook: It's been a long time since I last watched this. It did not disappoint. (Netflix)
  11. The word you're looking for is "grifter".
