    I watched Continental Divide on BD with John Belushi. It was the first time I'd viewed it since at the cinema back in the early 80's. The mountain scenery is gorgeous and the movie is quite tolerable. A little Belushi goes a long ways!

    One thing about Roddy in "My Friend Flicka"-While his British accent isn't very strong in that film, it's a little funny that he has a bit of a British accent while his film parents have none. The farm hand had an accent too, but he wasn't related to Ken (Roddy's character).

    This is easy just like shooting elephants at ten paces with a shotgun! ;) Obviously Roddy was adopted and brought by his new parents to the United States. The farm hand is just as easy. Farm hounds want the hell out of Ireland and Scotland all the time. There's been a bunch of every kind of Brit here in Knocksville. Me, personally, I have met no farm hands but I was never in 4 H Club. The Brits I've known have been university professors, groovy dancers, musicians, war brides, and I suspect, just suspect, secret agents. ;)

    Why I even met Ozzie Osbourne in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 1970. Well, it wasn't exactly Gatlinburg. It was the woods just outside the city limits just before you get into the Smoky Mountain National Park. He and Bill, his drummer, were doing the same thing as my group, looking for the secret place where grass doobies were legal. So, we all had a potty party, puff, puff. I wasn't sure if Ozzie was having us on. Their pictures were not on their early albums. I had to look in Tiger Beat or one of those type magazines to confirm what I saw was who I saw. It was Ozzie.

    Here's the funny part. They told us that they were in town to harass Jesus freaks that were having a convention because there was a gap in their touring schedule. That turned out to be true. There was a convention. They did the harassing. We shadowed the two of 'em for a while. They did things like take literature from the freaks and set it on fire. We were not always close enough to hear what they said to folks. I was close enough to Ozzie to hear him tell one guy, "f*** god, praise the devil" at one point. I think that it took less than an hour for the Gatlinburg Police to confront them. We decided to walk on by them and see if we could hear what the police were telling them. We heard as we leisurely walked by. The police were telling them to go straight to their hotel or be arrested.... :laugh: That was one very strange day especially for 1970!

    In another reality, Ozzie would make a fine farm hand.

    I watched the Marx Brothers on BD last night. A Night In Casablanca was the one. I'd never seen it before. I bet it has been 20 years since I watched one of my several Marx Brothers Laserdiscs. Marxism is still fun after all these years! There's some really good music played in this one. :thumbsup:

    I know it's pricey, I doubt if it will go on sale but you never know. I had never seen the film before but I'm a fan of Robert Forster so had to get it.
    The Banker which recently came out is another good one.

    "Billy Jack"- For being the title character of the film, he really isn't in it too much, at least not as much as someone who's the title character should be/should have been.

    Cisco Pike, 1972 Hippie Noir with Kris Kristofferson and Gene Hackman. Unburnished tale of down and out songwriter forced into dealing bunch of pot by a crooked cop. Evocative locations of the more run down parts of L.A. Kris holds his own against Gene, mainly by not 'acting' but by conveying a wary weariness. Harry Dean Stanton poignant as an addict running out of overdoses. IIRC it was actually filmed in 1970, and somehow catches that 'end of the 60's' and how that 70's 'everyone is on the make' feel.

    A decent enough movie if you're expectations aren't high, and a potent antidote to the two recent Laurel Canyon docs.

    I've watched a movie each of the past 3 evenings.

    [​IMG]
    Jurassic Park (the first one). I thought it was in dolby vision because that was on the packaging, but apparently only the latest Jurassic World movie is. This new 4k disc is still the best the original has looked on home video though.

    Action USA is a crazy 80s b-movie that really lived up to its name. Damn, that was an entertaining movie. I picked it up during the last Vinegar Syndrome sale and I'm glad I did. Just be sure to check your brain at the door. :laugh:

    [​IMG]
    Return of the Fly
    Not quite as good as the original in my opinion, but still pretty good. It came out a year after the original and also starred the great Vincent Price. There is some intrigue and backstabbing to go along side the science plot in this one which gave it an element of suspense.
