    OMG! My bad, Chris. I confused Nolan's work with Villeneuve. How stupid. I don't know what I was thinking. Glad you caught it.

    Merry Christmas... still worried about January 6th and these Special Councils he's creating. He's so mean spirited and vengeful. I think he's planning something evil.

    I was a huge Zappa fan back in the early 1970's and even liked some of his later more commercial stuff like "Dirty Love." Great review, Chris. Look forward to seeing this.

    It's so apparent what he values. He was more interested in the Dow Jones this week than the misery of Americans who are suffering. Disgusting.
