White Lotus (HBO)

Jaws, The Emmys, White Lotus, Tony Sirico

T.G.I.F. my friends, T.G.I.F. 

How are you? Are you holding up okay? Is your mind blown by the Webb Telescope photos? Images from the deepest, darkest regions of space can really throw your mind out of whack. I'm here to help however I can.

With the Fourth of July holiday in the rearview, Summer is officially kicking into high gear. As for me, I've been trying to spend as much daylight time outside as possible. I highly recommend you do the same. Embrace it, people.

Of course, the night-time is the right time for movies (how's that for a segue), and boy, do I have the perfect summer flick for you.

Let's get to it, shall we?

Often imitated but never duplicated, Steven Spielberg's 1975 masterpiece Jaws remains the ultimate mix of horror and sheer entertainment. With each new viewing, there is something new to appreciate. For me, it's still Spielberg's best movie, and it's not even close. Read the Full Review

I wish I didn't have to include this blurb in my newsletter - but Tony Sirico passed away this week. Tony was best known for playing Paulie Gualtieri, aka Paulie Walnuts, on The Sopranos. A fantastic actor and a true legend.

The 2022 Emmy Award nominations are in, and I have to admit, I think they nailed it this time. I'm delighted to see all the nods for White Lotus, an underappreciated gem that just got better and better as it went along. Can't wait for season two.

Enjoy the weekend, and we'll see you next week.
