I found this quit interesting and very unique.

We've all heard of bachelor parties.

With my grandson getting married next month, he was given his this weekend.  The bunch of guy friends took him to see the Belmont Stakes and he, fortunately, witnessed the winning of the coveted Triple Crown winner, Justify.

First of the Triple Crown - The Kentucky Derby


Second Race of the Triple Crown - The Preakness


The Belmont Stakes - Third and final race to be a Triple Crown Winner


That was exciting to watch.  We're not horse fanciers as a family, but always enjoy watching the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes.

  • post Is Steve Trevor's return in Wonder Woman 2 just another absurd resurrection? - 20 June
  • From Batman to Superman, you can?t keep a superhero dead for long. Now, Wonder Woman 1984 will have to do some explaining
    In the pages of Marvel and DC Comics, it has become something of a running joke that dead superheroes rarely stay down for long. Captain America, Batman, Superman and Spider-Man have all spent time in an apparently lifeless condition, only to be miraculously restored to merrily continue their adventures. The Dark Knight was revealed to have been transported to the stone age after apparently dying at the hands of Darkseid in 2009?s Final Crisis series, and had to travel back through the centuries to take up the cape and cowl once again.
    Meanwhile, Peter Parker spent the best part of two years locked in a corner of Otto Octavius?s mind after the supervillain transferred his consciousness into Spider-Man?s body in the 2012 Dying Wish episode. Think that?s outlandish? Steve Rogers (Captain America) was eventually revealed to have been phasing in and out of time for two years, rather than being bounced from this mortal coil, following the landmark The Death of Captain America comic in 2007.

  • post Christopher Plummer: 'Why not bring me in to play Roseanne for the next season?' - 20 June
  • The Oscar-winning actor talks about replacing Kevin Spacey, why he finds marijuana boring and how he?s grown to stop hating The Sound of MusicJack Jaconi, the geriatric weed dealer played by Christopher Plummer in new indie dramedy Boundaries, sees life through the rearview. This is true in the literal sense ? the film follows Jack and his adult daughter Laura (Vera Farmiga) on a cross-country relocation after his entrepreneurial streak gets him expelled from his retirement community ? but this journey has a deeper elegiac energy to it, taking Jack on a tour through a past dotted with mistakes and regret.?There?s a lot of reflection to it,? Plummer muses, from the plush theater in the basement of New York?s Crosby Street hotel. ?There?s a similar reflective quality in each role I take on these days.? Continue reading...
  • post Freak Show review ? Trudie Styler looks for the funny side of bullying - 20 June
  • Alex Lawther plays a gay high-schooler with dreams of being homecoming queen in this smug, overcooked comedy dramaExcellent actor Alex Lawther is all but insufferable in this glib, smug and overcooked high-school comedy drama, adapted from the 2007 novel by James St James and in which Trudie Styler makes her directing debut. Lawther plays Billy Bloom, a flamboyant gay teenager who is bullied by the mean boys and mean girls at his reactionary new high school, and is obsessed by memories of his wonderfully glamorous mother, played by Bette Midler. She is now separated from Billy?s father, an uncaring wealthy man with whom Billy must now live in a vast mansion ? it is difficult to tell how ironic his endless self-pity is supposed to be. But, despite being savagely beaten and actually put into a coma by homophobic jocks, Billy finds some comfort in his friendship with the school?s football star Flip Kelly (Ian Nelson), a sensitive guy who wants to be an artist. Billy finally hits on a great idea, which will fatefully divide the school: he will run for homecoming queen. Continue reading...
  • post In the Fade review ? ninja heroine Diane Kruger marooned in feeble revenge drama - 26 May
  • Fatih Akin?s drama about a woman whose husband is killed in a terrorist bomb attack is an uncompelling and evasive treatment of a very contemporary subjectFatih Akin?s mediocre revenge drama In the Fade is the TV movie of the week: feebly uncontentious and un-contemporary. It is about a white German woman whose Turkish husband is killed, along with their young son, by a terrorist bomb-blast. When the bullshit criminal justice system fails to convict the swaggeringly unrepentant culprits, this woman completes the half-finished samurai tattoo she has on her side, and resolves to take matters into her own hands; her late husband?s extended family and community having apparently fallen silent on the subject of legal or illegal means of redress. They are written out of the story, leaving the field clear for the blonde avenger. Continue reading...
  • post Who needs film critics? Actually, we all do - 20 June
  • Accusations of a lack of diversity among reviewers raises the bigger question of whether they have a role to play at all in the new landscape of cinema?Crritic!? This is the final, victorious insult in a war of words between Vladimir and Estragon in Samuel Beckett?s Waiting for Godot, voicing the disdain for reviewers felt by the playwright and artists the world over, then and since. Some of that contempt for the critic has surfaced once more this week, giving rise to a debate about the role of reviewers in the new film landscape. Last Wednesday, speaking at the Crystal + Lucy Awards, Brie Larson took aim at the lack of diversity in film criticism. ?I do not need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn?t work for him about A Wrinkle in Time,? she said. ?It wasn?t made for him.?

  • post Puzzle review ? Kelly Macdonald sees the big picture in jigsaw indie - 20 June
  • A suburban New York mother hemmed in by chores finds unfashionably analogue freedom in jigsaw puzzles in this modest yet touching drama
    Compare how vital Kelly Macdonald was to 1996?s Trainspotting with her cursory presence in 2017?s boysy sequel, and you?ll have some sense of how the British film industry has underestimated her. Macdonald has always been a supremely sympathetic performer, but her mousy air may have been seen as a big-screen limitation. She scuttled round in subservient roles (Gosford Park, Nanny McPhee), before escaping pantry duty via HBO?s Boardwalk Empire: a wife part, yes, but one that proved steelier than first imagined over that five-season run. TV arcs bend towards their own form of justice.Puzzle, the offbeat US indie opening this year?s Edinburgh film festival, finds Macdonald tending house yet again ? though here it?s an acknowledgement of wasted potential, a corner from which her character Agnes needs to be sprung. We join her doing the day shift in her commuter-belt New York home, odd woman out in a conservative bolthole lorded over by mechanic husband Louie (David Denman) and two boisterous college-age sons. Escape comes, unexpectedly, in the form of a jigsaw puzzle ? a birthday present that gives Agnes respite from chores. Yet the gift also opens this meek den-mother?s eyes to her great, long-honed facility for putting everything in its rightful place. Continue reading...
