Christopher Walken's Best Movie Quotes and UFOria?πŸ‘½πŸ›Έ

I saw news about the passing of Cindy Williams today and looked up the movies she had starred in over the years and found one called 'UFOria' which I had never heard of before, starring two other late actors, Fred Ward and Harry Dean Stanton.
Someone had uploaded a free copy on You Tube a few years back, so I watched it, glad not to have paid money to watch it.
Funny thing is that at IMDB 'UFOria' outscores 'Communion' starring Christopher Walken as Whitley Stieber.  
Cindy Williams (1947-2023)
I couldn't help but notice that Cindy Williams shares a birthday of August 22nd with Mike Celland (The Owl Guy) ... WHO knew?-)
Released August 11, 1973 (United States)
Cindy Williams big film was probably 'American Graffiti' which was released on August 11th, 1973 and Whitley Strieber's wife Anne passed away on August 11th, 2015.
The dedication to 'The Wolfen' reads "For Anne"

Little Women and Blue Pills?🐰

I'm reading/listening to Louisa May Alcott's 1868 book 'Little Women' after watching the 1994 movie version of the book directed by Gillian May Armstrong and thought how ironic it was that Louisa passed away two days after her father on March the 6th, 1888 and that her famous literary family had the surname March.
And her sister Elizabeth passed away on Pi Day (3/14)?

Elizabeth Sewall "Lizzie" Alcott
(June 24, 1835 – March 14, 1858)
I started reading Louisa's book after reading/listening to 'Crime and Punishment' -

Time and Punishment?⏰πŸ‘€
'Little Women' is a book that I thought I would never be bothered reading during my lifetime, but when I saw it was one of Gillian's films and starring Winona Rider as Jo, I had to give it a go.

Blue mass (also known as blue pill or pilula hydrargyri)
I wanted to learn more about 
Louisa May Alcott's life and searched for podcasts which focused on her life and writing, and I found this one below which mentioned Louisa being given blue pills to treat her pneumonia which contained mercury?!

I listened to this 'Let Genius Burn' podcast below about Orchard House and guess which month Orchard House had to shut down in 2020 because of the pandemic?

The Original Wednesday Addams Actress Dies in the Year of the Rabbit?πŸ‡

And just as Tim Burton's Netflix show 'Wednesday' becomes a big pop-cultural hit.
Apparently, Wednesday was born on a Friday the 13th?

Grief 2 Growth?πŸŒ±πŸ‘Ό

I've been following Brian for quite a while, not that I've listened to every podcast he has done, but key in "Grief 2 Growth" in my blog search bar and you'll see the posts I have written about his podcast show.
While I'm not into "Jesus" as much as he is, I am into "God" just as much as he is, I think.
I love the work Brian is doing and only can imagine if I lost a son before I passed ... but don't want to.
Of course, "God" deals the cards out in life, and you have no option but to play your hand out or fold.
You have no idea how you would play that hand until the cards fall in front of you at life's table.
I think I would fold and upturn the table in a fit of rage, but who knows until and if that time comes ... and I hope I'm never put to the test this time round.
To me Brian is a stronger soul than I am in the lives we have been dealt this time round.
I do know from a personal experience I had at a very young age that we all do survive "death", but it doesn't make me any more special than anyone else living right now.
If anything, I have a lot to learn from people living down here and doing it rougher than I am.
And Brian is one of them, I feel.


(Y?) is the question when it comes to why 
Damien Chazelle wanted to make BabYlon?
I saw it at the cinema yesterday and I still can't make up my mind if it was a good film and whether it is worth watching again to find out.
It's like Damien put 'La La Land' into a blender with Kubrick's 'Eyes Wide Shut', 'The Shining' '2001 ...' and 'A Clockwork Orange' and poured it out onto the big screen.
And it makes 'Eyes Wide Shut' look like a Disney movie.
Kubrick and the Years of the Rabbit?🐰πŸŽ₯πŸ‡
I don't know if it was literally a
piss-take and a dump on Hollywood or something more profound ... or both?
Babylon: Damien Chazelle's poison pen letter to Hollywood?
That review from the Australian ABC news site pretty much sums up my take on the movie so far.
Maybe a second viewing would make me change my tune?
After all I hated Kubrick's 'The Shining' and 'A Clockwork Orange' when I first saw them on the cinema screen on the same day when I was 16 years old and had snuck into the cinema with my older brother's birth certificate to prove that I was 18 ... which probably served me right:-)
I wouldn't say that I like those movies now, just that I appreciate them more now and can see what Kubrick was trying to do by making those movies.
And I still can't hear or see 'Singing in the Rain' without thinking about how 'A Clockwork Orange' destroyed that movie and song for me back when I was 16 -
