    Another one that doesn't seem to have quite the catalog of knowledge is SoundHound. I use it and Shazam. I find SoundHound to be better for me for how I use it - I capture music unknown to me and then, when I am shopping at McKay's I pull up the history and start looking. I know Shazam has the history as well but it has "stranded" me a few times at McKay's, leaving me unable to retrieve my history shopping list. If you guys get down to TN & NC be sure to take a shopping list and plenty of $$. They have new and used CDs, LPs, DVDs, SACD, etc. Most are used and priced from $.25 for "very scratched" to regular price for an in-demand, new or unusual release. FWIW - I have bought tons of the very scratched items and never had one not play. Most music is divided by genre and artist - except for the very scratched section. Those are just added to the shelves as they come in. It's a real easter egg hunt looking through them... The book selection and video selection is massive as well. It is easy to spend hours in the stores... http://www.mckaybooks.com/our-story

    Somewhat "historical semi-fiction" is this one of my favorites..., Having lived in Houston, been on a few oil rigs, and worked in the Oil & Gas industry, I know people like this movie portrays. There Will Be Blood (2007) IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469494/fullcredits Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and Starring Daniel Day Lewis, as Daniel Plainview with a very long list of unknowns. This Movie is an adaptation of Upton Sinclair's 1927 novel "Oil !" The story is about the early California Oil discoveries in the central valley as prospectors looked for get-rich and cutthroat activities to get rich "first" off the inevitable value that Oil was to have. There's some extreme story lines here that make one really realize that the over-romanticized elements of getting rich off the economic riches of the earth are not all that they are cracked up to be. D.D. Lewis is a silver miner, and strikes oil instead..., and the rest is about the way his life corrupts on his ruthless quest to screw everyone around him to get ahead. His life does not turn out well.

    I enjoy history related movies, especially ones that shows our past and rights that have been restored. And not to be negligent in respect this one's on my list too.

    My favorite directors are Akira Kurosawa, Alfred Hitchcock, Peter Weir, Francis Ford Coppola, Satyajit Ray, Bernardo Bertolucci, Ang Lee, Merchant and Ivory (and a few more...) . The Criterion Collection has some real gems.

    I guess as I age I should get used to seeing these, but it doesn't mean I have to like it... ? RIP Rutger - great talent indeed. The Hitcher was an obscure movie he played a serial killer in. It was an intense, somewhat strange movie back in the day.

    Nothing on that list that isn't, at least, good fun. No embarassment there! Totally cool! I had not seen it until fairly recently (within the last couple of years), so I looked it up. I watched the B&W version, first. It is still incredibly relevant and very well done! I still collapse into a fit of literal hysteria when I think about this one - something to do with the "toaster" in it. Took me ages to recover when it first came out.

    Doubt this is off the beaten path? I know there was a recent remake, but I just don't think it could possibly compare. No desire to see it. I bought this movie on DVD about 12 years ago. I'd seen it several times over the years, but wanted to see it again. I used to watch a lot of movies with my kids, mostly Disney and the like. Youngest was probably about 10 at the time. They wanted to watch it so .... OK. They sat thru the entire movie - loved it .... it's 2.5 hours long.

    I really enjoy the Tom Clancy based films (except Patriot Games - I don’t know why, but that one never did it for me). This clip from Clear and Present Danger was one of my go-to demos during my Laser Disc heydays... I loved Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny (and she was not hard to look at either!). So many great one-liners - “Whatta you, a fookin’ World traveler?” ”Yea, you blend...” ”My biological clock is tickin’ like this (stomping foot)!”

    That was such a great piece ..... "lost like tears in the rain"..... Rutger wrote that himself as he thought the original was too wordy...

    I'm not a Huge Tom Cruise fan, but I did like Collateral, as noted above. And, with the new sequel coming out, I have to say I have watched the original more than a few times..., that is Top Gun. The audio effects through surround sound continue to be my go-to DVD for running my HD AV system through its paces. The list of actors in this movie back then..., wow. Cruise, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Kelly McGillis, Meg Ryan, Tom Skerritt, Michael Ironside, John Stockwell, Barry Tubb, Rick Rossovich, Tim Robbins..., (What a list of Bad Ass Attitudes) - and many more really made this movie. Top Gun. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092099/ I can't tell yet if the sequel is going to be as good..., we'll have to wait. I imagine, however, the flight scenes, and sounds, will be awesome.

    What company posed this photo? Obviously the iron isn't hot, because OSHA has outlawed asbestos fingers. Which means the photo was posed using an actor to simulate doing something productive on a circuit board as a publicity deal--advertising, or a company newsletter. "Here, honey, put on the silly glasses, hold this, and look intently at that thingie on the table in front of you..."

    For me, Shazam will always bring back memories of my childhood, and the Filmation Production cartoon I used to watch called "Shazam."
