I caught part of Rambo III the other night. How times change. The Soviets were fighting insurgents in Afghanistan. Rambo went there to rescue his former C.O. from the Soviets. His allies in the film were referred to as mujahideen, but today would likely be called the Taliban.

From Wiki, this was a surprise: "With a production budget between $58 and $63 million, Rambo III was the most expensive film ever made at the time."

Muscle Shoals. A terrific documentary about the legendary recording studio in the town of the same name that was responsible for countless hits and records from the late 60's - 70's onward. Surprising how many name artists got their start here. Stuff we all listened to back then, and it was all done at this humble lil' studio in the cotton fields of 'bama!

Highly recommended.

I LOVE any decent music documentary. This one is very good. I’m especially fond of the Classic Albums series. My favorites within that are Rumours, Dark Side of the Moon, and Damn the Torpedoes.

But as of this morning, I find myself wanting to revisit The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. The late Dan Haggerty’s portrayal of the title character was my first hero (live action, at least). When the series first ran, I was 4-5 years old (78-79). The show absolutely mesmerized me. I think it’s time to check it out again.

"Gypsy: Rock & Roll Nomads" Full Documentary (2016)​

The progressive rock band Gypsy roared out of the Twin Cities, landed in Los Angeles in 1968, scored a hit on the record charts and built a fervent nationwide following. Six years later they called it quits. This is their absolutely true Rock & Roll story.

One of my high school friends and classmates was the band's manager. The "real" lead singer, lead guitar player, and composer was also a fellow with whom I'd gone to school. He had an early tragic death.
It made me very sad, seeing all these guys, who I knew in the 60s--70s. The road and drugs took a toll and they all look like the walking dead.

How much fun do you think Keanu Reeves and Lawrence Fishburne have making the John Wick movies? In the scenes they are together, you can tell they're struggling not to laugh.

Great documentary of WWII and Vietnam. Very graphic and sobering film accounts, much of which had never been seen before.


Cheers,
