The Movies Frank Sinatra Didn’t Make!

He’s made more news now with his numerous excursions with the law. First featured in the movie The Woman In Red, it has since become a classic hit sung all over the place. Kevin Costner is one of the biggest stars in movie history.
In “The Way, Way Back,” which opens Friday, July 12 exclusively at Harkins Camelview 5, Liam James plays a teenager who gets a job at a water park and gains some much-needed self-confidence under the guidance of happy-go-lucky water park employee (Sam Rockwell) who approaches life from a fresh new perspective.

One movie that certainly has to be included on this list is Training Day. If you like cop movies, then this is a must-see. Hawke got nominated for best supporting actor in this movie, while Denzel Washington 12 years a slave awards years a slave awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance.

Soon after, Dylan went on tour with the Rolling Thunder Revue featuring Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Mick Ronson, Jonie Mitchell, Roger McGuinn and poet Allen Ginsberg. Throughout the tour, he featured “Hurricane” to protest boxer Rubin Carter being unjustly imprisoned for murder. He released the live album Hard Rain at the end of the tour. Then, in 1976, he released his third straight #1 album, Desire.

This is a great baseball movie that tells the story of ex-negro league players barnstorming the country during the era of segregation. While the film’s main character is loosely based on Satchel Paige the film is a work fiction. While the movie is meant to be a comedy it also has a serious and semi-tragic element to it as it deals with the racism that existed in America in the 1940s. Besides how can you go wrong with an all star cast that includes Billy Dee Williams, Richard Pryor and James Earl Jones!

This is not only the ultimate golf movie it is probably one of the funniest movies ever made. I rarely hang out and play golf with my buddies without somebody goofing off and quoting this film.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, have been married for four years and are still adoringly in love.Urban talked about his first meeting with Kidman and the way the glamorous star floated across the room, instead of appearing to walk. At first, Urban was in awe of Kidman and not sure why she would be interested in talking to him, but the couple soon clicked. Shortly after their marriage, Urban dealt with addiction problems and now has been sober for four year. The adoring couple has one child, Sunday Rose, who reportedly goes everywhere with Kidman.

Carly Simon may have had a huge hit with her song “You’re So Vain” back in 1972 (through current times), but it was the song “Let The River Run” that won her an Oscar. The song was both written and performed by Simon for the movie Working Girl, which stars Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, Alec Baldwin, and Joan Cusack. Those three named actresses were all also nominated for Oscars for their roles in Working Girl, however, Carly Simon the singer was the only one to take home a statue.

It will come as no surprise that Jeff Bridges is awesome as Rooster Cogburn, but I was quite surprised to see Matt Damon, who I believe gave one of the best performances of his career as Texas Ranger LaBoeuf. Josh Brolin is fantastic (as always) as villain Tom Chaney, and it was great to see Barry Pepper in a small but good role as, oddly enough, Lucky Ned Pepper. The film’s biggest surprise is Hailee Steinfeld, who plays the film’s main character, Mattie Ross. The 14-year-old Steinfeld more than holds her own alongside this cast of incredible actors; she steals the show, blowing up the screen with her clever and whimsical personality. She deserves a Best Actress nomination, at least.
