Well, I tried to sneak a western past you in the dark of night. Maybe next time.

Review: 3 Godfathers (1948).

Ward Bond was a national treasure (of Ireland and the US). Just saw him as the bus driver ("Oh, yeah?") in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT. I don't think he did a single role he didn't imprint with his signature talent (maybe the cop in THE MALTESE FALCON). See also: Nat Pendleton.

I just happened to have watched this at a friend's house last night. It's The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg. It was nothing to write home about, but an entertaining couple of hours. Jessica Lange was particularly good.

Correct.
I disagree though, I think its one of those rare examples of a remake that works in its own right. Exceptional cinematography and dialog that's far and away better than the average Hollywood drek. The entire cast is excellent.

Don't get me wrong...I enjoyed it. I just thought it had a "been there done that" kind of feel. It was certainly far from dreck though.

Is that Back to the Future? I remember something happened during a time travel visit that changed the name of the local shopping mall from Twin Pines Mall to Lone Pine Mall.
