    Thanks, Scrimmage, for some insights into the way you read, view, etc.
    Isn't it interesting how people differ? I love the spoilers precisely because I want to know what is coming. Then I view for the nuances. For example, I try to see the Luke and Laura scenes so I may watch the eyes, faces, body expressions since those two are masters and are so in sync. Also, I watch to catch every bit of the dialogue since sometimes the it overlaps when several people are in the scene ( a technique used in a lot of films, classic as well as modern).
    My all time favorite movie is "Notorious" with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant, of course. Structurally, it is somewhat complicated, but even when I know what is coming, I can appreciate it more each time. Also, it is a movie that builds, builds, builds with excruciating suspense and tension--and, when Cary carries Ingrid down those steps after she has been progressively poisoned, I always let out a sigh of relief. And the bit where she is almost discovered with the key is always fun--though I know for sure what is going to happen. Doesn't diminish my pleasure at all.
    Re reading: I can read some poets over and over again just for the appreciation of their use of language--and their craft.
    I very seldom read mysteries but I would not read one again.
    Isn't that funny?
    And I can reread parts of classic fiction; on the other hand, I can read and reread many well-crafted short stories just for sheer pleasure and appreciation of style.
    Recently I saw Bogdonavich's "The Last Picture Show" and found that I got more of the nuances the second time.
    Just the other day, I saw the movie version of "The Ballad of the Sad Cafe" with Vanessa Redgrave. Really strange! Perhaps I should view it again!
    Re music: In the 70s, I saw Willie Nelson onstage (in his overalls). I had heard "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" one morning on the way to my job as high school English teacher and was knocked out by his inimitable voice and treatment of the song and wanted to see this person! He did not disappoint! He called up Jerry Jeff Walker, Guy Clark (young upstarts then)and Billy Joe Shaver (who was so shy he seemed to be beside himself with his strange fist pumping and other gesticulations). Just today I am listening again to the live 2004 Tribute to Billy Joe for the upteenth time and still getting something new each time, it seems. Love the live albums for their energy an their asides/chatter pre song. And I just found a copy of Jerry Jeff's High Ridin' album from 1972--and appreciating it all over again from a different perspective and age. And Willie? Well, he is simply ageless, and I have his music from "Bloody Monday Morning" to the Atlantic release of "Shotgun Willie" to "Stardust," ad naseaum. And Waylon Jenning? From "Honky Tonk Heroes" (Billy Joe's songs + one)to "This Time" to "Dreaming My Dreams"--never tire of that emotionally charged voice and down low guitar. Thanks for listening!

    Pemi - you nailed it on Maxie. The only problem is she's still wrong and responsible for the heartache that many will suffer. And trust me, I wish it wasn't Maxie.

    We do see things very differently Scrimmage. Thankfully. I would hate very much to see things like you. Maxie was trying to do something kind hearted and special for someone she loves. The end result is unfortunate. Not some evil diabolical plan. She messed up but her heart was in the right place. You act like she was going to leave her baby in a basket on a doorstep in hopes that someone would take it off her hands. That’s not what was going on at all. You are twisting it around to something intentionally hurtful and mean spirited to suit your own argument. But like you said…. We see things differently.

    Scrimmage, re reading reviews:
    I always read review--just love to see points of view--but I rarely agree with them. When they rave about a film, I seldom if ever agree. When they pan a movie I often love it.
    My pattern: I find that I tend to like the obscure, often overlooked film--and gravitate to them. I did see "Crazy Heart" and agreed with critics/award committee about Jeff Bridges' realistic, gritty performance.

    Wow.....I agree with Scrimmage this one time and thought "This was quite a day-miracles DO happen" THEN suddenly almost everyone else disagrees with him regarding Ellie and Maxie. Has the world gone mad....

    AJ look at the letters again upside down. Franco did it.

    Scrimmage, Maxi's heart was in the right place. Her brain was not. It's a bit of both selfish and selfless. Oh and stupidity!
