Just watched the 1960 classic 'The Apartment' with Jack Lemon and Shirley MacLaine.
Haven't seen it for years.
What a wonderful movie....

I'm definitely a little in love with Miss Kubelik :heart:



I think I may watch 'The Seven year Itch' next.

I really tried to like Top Gun: Maverick but I couldn't get by some of its premises.

1) For the success of the mission they were relying on a "miracle" instead accurate weapons systems.

2) That rules of engagement are just annoying bureaucracy to be side-stepped.

3) The 'enemy' wasn't named and we didn't learn anything about them and the movie wanted me to take it on faith that we should be automatically viewing the USA, who were going to bomb them, as the good guys when history says not necessarily.

I was reading an article just there about how Top Gun has surpassed TItanic at the box office and an odd thing struck me about the comments. There's a load of people saying things like, sarcastically, "Who would have thought a non-woke movie with no political agenda could've done so well. Hurr. Hurr."

I'm not sure how they could possibly think that this jingoistic air force recruitment video has "no political agenda". All I could do was laugh in industrial military complex.
