Hate to pick bones, but AFAIK, it was called Runaway Train. I mostly remember Jon Voight as the Midnight Cowboy. As well as being Angelina Jolie's dad.

I mostly remember "The Saint" Simon Templar (Roger Moore) as having a well-cut jacket along with a fast white Volvo car and an air of money. The Deb's delight, if you follow.

RMS Titanic is a deep mystery. Did the company sink the damaged sister ship deliberately for the insurance. We will never know, IMO.

My current lockdown wheeze tonight is a cute little 2016 Space Film called: Passengers.

With a stripped down cast of 4 actors, it nevertheless entertains and keeps you interested: YouTube.

I have never seen a better looking spaceship. And I could not find any plot-holes in the relatavistic Physics. Best thing was the out-takes. The actors thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Well, I would too, if earning about $10M for 6 months work.

YouTube for now. Tavarish finished his Bentley project and Jethro Bronner finished his '67 Alfa Spider 1600 project on the same day!

Answer: Topic, A Hazelnut in Every Bite!

Due to a fairly random occurrence, I rocked up with a movie called The Queen tonight.

All about that crazy week in August, 1997, when the "People's Princess" Lady Diana died in a car crash in Paris.

We all went bonkers that week. I was living in Kensington, London and visited the million flowers outside Kensington Palace. My aged Dad rocked up to Buck House and got seriously cross at the lack of response from the Royals.

Director Stephen Friers made an interesting point about Queen Elizabeth II. She's been around for longer than his Mum and Dad, and mine, as it goes.

Which makes Her a more solid rock than most things.

Zeitgeist does make you think, even if I disagree on several points it is thought provoking. On the other hand I had a good time rewatching the Back to the Future series. Good to find a balance between the serious and the entertaining

I often feel like I am watching Pyrasphere with all that Zeitgeist/Venus Project/New Age stuff!

Why do these all-knowing gurus of the future always seem to have goatee beards and sound so terribly serious? All looked a bit Star Trek to me, Humankind will stumble from one disaster to the next IMO.

I was watching one of my personal favourites today. Professor Dick Feynman on Gravity back around 1960 thanks to the BBC film crew:
'The Character of Physical Law': Richard Feynman's Legendary Course Presented at Cornell, 1964 | Open Culture

I was gripped! The best people make it look easy. It's not. But he always looks like he is having fun.
