1:34 . They really should not be doing holding that kid down like that. Besides it not being a very nice thing to do to, plus it being YAH a tad harmful to the child, err, I saw a movie once where somebody tried to do that. It didn't end well.

Took that HBO freebee and watched season six of Game of Thrones. That catches me up except for some parts I missed somehow. :think:

I can wait another year or so to see new episodes. :)

I'll break open the story and tell you what is there. Then, like the others that have fallen out onto the sand, I will finish with it, and the wind will take it away.

Two old movies about young lovers who must overcome obstacles to be together. Sound familiar?

Lisa and David. Here the obstacle is mental illness. David the main character has dread fear of human contact and he gradually opens up to schizophrenic Lisa "the pearl of a girl." Despite being clunky and overacted, this is a simply told story that reminds me of Oskar and Eli.

A Little Romance. Young lovers run away from their parents to Venice to kiss under the Bridge of Sighs. This has been compared to Moonrise Kingdom. Basically this is a comedy with some cartoonish characters, especially Laurence Olivier as Julius. I did find the scenes between Lauren and Daniel to be very touching.

This was directed by George Roy Hill (as he keeps reminding us during the movie). The same guy who directed Slapshot. :o A Little Romance probably did not make as much money as Slapshot but I think it was Hill's best effort.

I'll break open the story and tell you what is there. Then, like the others that have fallen out onto the sand, I will finish with it, and the wind will take it away.
