Aside from his Bond roles -- From Russia .. -- was my favorite, he did serious stuff such as the unforgettable The Hill and The Man who Would be King.

What else stood out strongly is that most actors and actresses talk garbage if they don't have a script -- Sean Connery made sense when asked about anything.
We have met the enemy, and they is us.

The Indiana Jones movie is one of my favorites too. I also liked him in The Man Who Would be King and The Untouchables. RIP, Sean Connery.

Sad to hear of Alex Trebek’s passing.

Yes, Alex has been part of the evening routine for decades.  The world has irreparably changed.

Neither one of these posts were put in the form of a question.

Who has been part of the evening routine for decades?

I have friends who don't answer their phones until after 7:30.

Not a person, and I apologize if it's therefore inappropriate for this thread, but I think many scientists and stargazers will miss the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, which is damaged beyond repair


Thinking also of the million+ souls lost to COVID as well as those left behind, particularly the health care workers dealing with grief on top of incredible personal and professional stress.

Sad for both.
