I believe these words came from the Pokémon movie, "Life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when there's so much on the line. But you and I can make a difference. There's a mission just for you and me. Just look inside and you will find just what you can do."
Turns out you don't gotta catch 'em all. You just gotta catch Sarskovtoo and get it to evolve into Sarskovards.

Alan Parker. Midnight Express, The Wall, Mississippi Burning, Angel Heart, Fame... impressive body of work.

Just a few weeks ago we took a look at the movie his obituaries all have in their headlines: Bugsy Malone. Only made it about 15 minutes. Holy Carp was that just fucking bizarre. Don't know why some headlines are mentioning that and Evita rather than some his better work.

I really do need to watch Angel Heart. It gets pretty much universal acclaim when it gets mentioned. It doesn't get mentioned much, but never in a bad way.

The Life of David Gale ranks right up there with Welcome to Mooseport and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen in terms of ignominious ends to an otherwise notable career.

Definitely worth seeing. Explaining why would probably necessitate spoilers but a non-spoiler added bonus is that the movie pissed off noted moral philosopher Bill Cosby.

Wilford Brimley, who I am shocked to learn both wasn't already dead and was only 85. Okay, so 85's not young, but I thought that guy was in his 80s twenty years ago.

Before it gets completely forgotten...
Asense of Malice is a pretty great film that takes on the corruption inherent in the system. It stars Hollywood Heavyweights Paul Neuman and Sally Field, but Wilford Brimley makes his entrance late in the third act and steals the show.
