Marlon Brando is dead.

He made moviegoers so many offers they could never refuse.

At 80, the Godfather departs.

    Unrelated to this post but…

    Julie, you live in San Jose? I’m in Santa Clara (the part that’s right down the street from San Jose). Small world….

    Looked for a blog of yours on here, but didn’t see anything. If you have a space you write, send me an email. I’m always looking for local blogs/journals to read. (lara@withinwithout.org).

    Sorry, Jeffrey….

    It turns out that he was thinking of a scene from “Rick,” a film that was out a couple of years ago, with Bill Pullman. Spooky. And, as a matter of fact, Ebert’s review has now been corrected, and the mistakes are gone.

    Or more likely…he saw an advanced screening in which those things did occur but were changed before the actual release and he didn’t rewatch the film

    Perhaps he was reviewing the “UNRATED/UNCUT” DVD version of the movie. ;)
