Re: Happy New Year

Thank you, Anniemouse! 2021'd have to work pretty damn hard to be any worse than last year, so I am full of optimism!!
Bring on the vaccine!

Re: Captain Hook makes a small appearance!

Thanks, guys!
In conjunction with putting this one together, I downloaded a new digital version of Pan (the picture is much better resolution than my old DVD), and have been really struck by how well it holds up. It's just a really good movie.
And yeah, Richard Briers was brilliant in it.

Captain Hook makes a small appearance!

This has been a very long time coming (I blame Trump), but at last, permit me to share an offer of holiday cheer from Very Small Smee: “Muscat, Miss?”

Happy hols, all!

Re: 2020 Calendar Available (from the UK)

Okay, Marie--I've let Deb know our total (including thunder's two).
Let me confirm Deb's PayPal e-mail, if that works for you ladies.

Re: Make My Money Matter campaign

Thanks for sharing, thunder. That accent was so posh it was almost unintelligible!
Hope it has an effect!

Re: 2020 Calendar Available (from the UK)

Right--Deb, the organizer, has advised that the cost of the calendar is expected to be £11/$15USD, with postage to the U.S. an additional $11 and £5.07 within the UK.
Total cost for U.S. purchasers=$26, UK=£16.07.

2020 Calendar Available (from the UK)

Hey fellow JIphiles--a crew of like-minded peeps in the UK have put together a calendar for 2020 illustrated with pics of our mutual fave. In deference to copyright laws, they're using artwork and not commercial photos. I don't know if they have a webpage or Facebook site or anything; if you're inte...

Re: Meeting Jason

Anniemouse, the last time I met Jason (at a Con in DC), my adult daughter came with us. She had just had a very minor surgery, but feared discomfort with long walking (it was a hike from the subway station) or extended standing, so I investigated a wheelchair rental. As it was, I hit a charity shop ...

Re: What would you recommend

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I watched Hotel Mumbai a couple of months ago, and found it... somewhat distasteful. I got that Jason's character was supposed to be kind of a massive dickhead, but the part where he was gallantly comforting the distressed young actress was revolting. "Don't lis...

Re: Jason's Autograph.

I have to tell you, it's even more fun to get one in person--and I need to believe that someday, this pandemic will be over, and you can go to a ComiCon in the UK and have a delightful chat with him.
I'd take that anyday.

Just sayin'.

Re: Hotel

I so appreciated your review, Annie! I watched this, like, a decade or so ago via surreptitious means, so I missed out on the (potentially explanatory) extras.
My own response was posted many years ago on https://www.jasonisaacsonline.com/page2.html, and it accords pretty closely with yours!
