Burt Reynolds

Born February 11, 1936

Burt Reynolds! There is almost nothing more that I can say about him. His name might as well be a noun, pronoun, and verb. I cannot say that he should be an adverb… but maybe. Love his movies and whether you hate his movies or not you have to admit that they are entertaining.

Noteworthy

  • The Longest Yard (1974) – This is the original. Reynolds as Paul Crewe. Passion, comedy, drama – love it. The last scene, where Crewe goes to get the game ball is particularly good.
  • Smokey and the Bandit – I chose the YouTube clip from this movie because it is my favorite Burt Reynolds flick. There is something about the pairing of Reynolds and Gleason that you have to love.
  • Deliverance – While not my favorite. This might be Reynolds best work. This is a classic and it is also a must-see.
  • Without a Paddle – When Burt Reynolds stepped into frame, this movie grew to even bigger heights in my mind. Talk about scene stealing. He completely overshadowed everything that Green, Lillard, and Shepard had done up to this part.
  • Best Little Whorehouse in Texas – OK, I lied. This is probably my favorite Burt Reynolds movie. Though, it might also be the entire cast that makes me love this movie.

My movies were the kind they show in prisons and airplanes, because nobody can leave.

Rick Astley

Rick Astley - Born February 6, 1966 My sister was a Rick Astley fan. As a little brother, I also had to be a Rick Astley fan. He had some great songs back in the 80s and quite a few that I still listen to. Noteworthy Never Gonna Give You Up on his freshmen album...

What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?

Slate.com had a great review of DC Comics new version of The Flintstones. Gone is the goofy group of cave people that lived in a little town called bedrock. Wilma and Fred are still here but they are less like the Honey Mooners and more up to date in a 1 million year...
