I posted about this movie a few years ago when it first aired. I am watching it again and it is just as powerful as the first time I watched it.
It is a movie everyone should watch.
I needed a good cry anyway. :usa:...

@ 8:00 eastern time on HBO Signature.
I have been re-watching at 8:00 each night as "The Sopranos" was one of my favorite HBO series and "Pine Barrens" is one of my favorite episodes. For those who do not want to tune in, here is the scene that always made me laugh:

There are so many great female singers but these are a few that I have been enjoying. Women hate me, but I still love them!
Always had a thing for Dolores O'Riordan:

I love the guitar in this one:

I saw this performace at Arena Stage in D.C. on Saturday and it was great. The woman who played Janis did a remarkable job. The woman who played "The Blues Singer" was amazing.
Hard to believe that Janis has been dead for over 40 years and died so young as a result of an overdose. She had a he...

I see it's coming on at noon (eastern time) on HBO. I saw it when it first came out and was very moved by the movie.
I remember Kevin Bacon's first screen appearance in "Animal House" and his performance as the despicable Nokes in "Sleepers". But this is far and away his best acting performance...

| Music Board|| Soundtracks you listen to - IonaTiger on 3/30/12 at 8:41 pm|
I listen to this one in my car. The music playing when Col. Shaw releases his horse right before the charge on Battery Wagner is a variation of the Main Theme. It is just haunting and sends a chill down my spine.
The music during the assualt on Battery Wagner is amazing.
