Movie Quiz 05-24-2024 and movies + Entertainment

Sometimes all you need is a good laugh, complexity be damned. Sometimes all you want is a warm bath of familiarly, dually titillated by belly laughs of the most finely honed, classic slapstick, while shivering in reverence (maybe even in fright, if you're of the right disposition) at some of Universal's finest xxxxxxx mayhem. Which is why, sometimes, you can't do any better than romp around with xxx xxxxx & xxx xxxxxxxx, and their meeting with xxxxxxxxxxx (and friends) is arguably the most purely joyful escapist fun any of their mashes have to offer.
This is the film that really sparked my interest in horror films. IT is a comedy laced with horrific elements. It is a wonderful blend of the absurd with the scary There is so much good about this film that it is hard to begin. This is probably their best film outing both in their comic timing and their ability to play off each other so convincingly. Land this movies name and we all watch.

Someone or someone's were using bots to overcrowd IA so it would not function. It went bad again today but back up again after another 5 hours kaput. It was called a DDOS attack. Why? Maybe just because someone could. Maybe they wanted to put it down because of American's Memorial Day or others. This is is the world state of affairs goings on. Hacking, stealing, making others pay to bring sites back up. Many nations sponsor it.

Glad you enjoyed Columbo. I did myself.
We had an attack on drug store chain. It was the Russians. They wanted $25 million or would post the info they hacked. Drugstore said no.

Columbo was great. Got a kick out of it.
I am without power last 12 hrs. Storm was a bad one. Maybe tonight, tomorrow or? In car garage charging cell. Get back to you later
Wow! I hope you are safe.

It is easy sometimes until you really know a person in their own environment. You fall in love then ("Oh wait a minute!) Wrong choice 😬

That "badges" quote was used by someone in my office not too long ago. I couldn't place it at the time. There's another actor who played a lot of Mexican characters. I get the two of them mixed up. Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez.

Vera Miles was in some great movies. Also several Disney movies and she was a guest star on many TV shows. I always liked her performances and she was attractive without that "glamorous" look so many actresses go for.

I have another great movie showing on Friday besides the other 3 I touted and a couple of movies for the Memorial Day week. It is called Autumn Leaves. It stars Joan Crawford--Cliff Robinson, Vera Miles and Lorne Green play some shady characters. I thought it was a great movie and a ton of Drama. For sure an edge of your seat one. Opens with a song sung by Nat King Cole (wonderful) . Starts innocent enough but then some crazy things happen which not only put the characters into a serious situations but the viewers also. I know that some think of Crawford's storied past and may not feel comfortable but I had no such feelings since I knew little about Joan's history. Even thought the movie should have scored a little higher. Kind of liked her hair-do she usually is not known for.

Sounds interesting. I have not seen that movie before. Sounds like a good cast and I like Nat King Cole's music.

10/10. I always liked Richard Boone. For the most part, his presence and abilities were wasted by movie producers. Extremely powerful in any medium. Everyone thinks of him in the iconic Have Gun Will Travel but I loved Hec Ramsey just as much. It’s a shame Hec appeared in only 6 or so episodes of NBC Mystery Theatre. Hec was every bit as good as Columbo but a little “edgier”.
