  1. Blinded by the Light - At the beginning, when Javed is writing in his diary, VO gives the date as Sept. 3, 1987
  2. Rebel Without a Cause is a far superior version of Blinded By the Light.
  3. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Feb. 8, 1969 (my 18th birthday) - opening scene ar Frank & Musso. Later they show date for Feb 9, and Aug 8.
  4. There are no talking animals at all. (There is a visual Timothy Q Mouse, however.) I wonder if anyone else has seen this yet and if they wondered if Dreamland (which turns into a nightmare) might not be biting the hand that feeds vis a vis Disneyland.
  5. I found it mediocre. It's not bad, but it's nothing new. It seems the main purpose of the film was to get her onboard for Endgame. They seem to like Ascension iconography. Who knew that cats are like the Tardis?
  6. Hotel Mumbai - Nov. 26, 2008. Date shown as the terrorists' raft comes ashore. Also on the memorial outside the Taj Hotel shown at the end.
  7. I'll keep you in mind if we have a hole. It's a Yahoo league with a kind of strange scoring (more categories than usual)
  8. Title: Stand By Me Director: Rob Reiner Year: 1986 Language: English IMDB Link: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092005/ YouTube Link (a clip of/trailer for the film): Link to the A&F thread on the film (if there is one): na
  9. Title: Return of the Secaucus Seven Director: John Sayles Year: 1979 Language: English IMDB Link: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081420/ YouTube Link (a clip of/trailer for the film): (Not Youtube, but) Link to the A&F thread on the film (if there is one): n/a
  10. For those in last year's league, check you mail box. The league has been renewed. I have a question on the league page about drafting. I'm leaning to early to accommodate the Tokyo games Mar. 20-22.
  11. A bit about a couple of my nominations. What They Had: When I saw this it was the most authentic portrayal of early/mid dementia that I saw. This was my mother. But that is only one of the transitions (and the least important on, in my opinion). They key is that it was also very true to what children go through in becoming parents to their parents. The two siblings were at odds. One (the one who dealt with it day by day) was ready to move to a new level. The more distant was wanting to try smaller steps. Again, this was true to my experience with siblings. There is also the husband's desire to take care of his wife as he'd promised all those years ago, without a clear understaning it was beyond his ability. 3 key steps of getting older in one movie. Toy Story 3 As above, I don't look at the obvious getting older of Andy going off to college, but rather at the collateral issues that it raises among the toys and how that moves them to a new level of understanding/wisdom in how they will face life in a world without Andy.
