    Since this whole virus thing started, it's easy to say that media and entertainment took a nose dive. Summer blockbusters went into mothballs, and the awards ceremonies were lackluster at best. I can't think of a single movie I was really excited to see in the past year. Aside from some high-minded indy films, there hasn't been much to get excited about, in my opinion. Granted, I know there have been some major releases via streaming sites, but I still feel like there really hasn't been all THAT much. So, with that being said, do you think Hollywood and studios have just put their big blockbusters on the back burner until all of this is over? I can see that being the case for summer movies because those are the ones that really sell the tickets at the box office. Anyone in-the-know on this?

    Thanks for the tip! I remember starting the actual book back in high school, but never finished it. I love audiobooks and I think I considered it once before. Many consider it to be the greatest science fiction story every written.

    I just rewatched The Green Mile after not having see in for years. I highly recommend that movie to anyone and everyone. The entire cast is excellent in it. Another movie I plan to rewatch soon now is Apollo 13. That's another classic Tom Hanks movie. His movies really never get old and are super rewatchable. Cast Away too.

    Agreed. I can always rewatch Forest Gump. I think another rewatchable movie would be Robin Hood: King of Thieves with Kevin Costner. Oh and Tin Cup too. :)

    Even before all of this happened, celebrities were just people at the end of the day. Nothing really special about them aside from the value we place on them as consumers.

    One of my favorite comedy classics, I must say. Apparently there were three different cuts of the film. I've seen some of the deleted scenes and I have to say, they definitely give the movie a different overall mood. You could even say that they make the movie a bit darker, and depressing in moments. But apparently there was a re-edited R rated version. Has anyone seen this, or scenes from it?

    Wow, I haven't seen any of those. I have only heard of The Trial of the Chicago 7. I need to dive into movies more.

    The video literally gave me chills. Also made me really sad. They changed the world of music by bringing back elements of music we had thrown away over the decades and making them relevant again. They showed that there really isn't any waste in music and that everything still has a life of its own. I truly hope one or both of them continue to make music. Anyway, thanks Daft Punk - God Speed.

    Yeah I got the feeling it will be a flop in ratings as well. Really the only one I'm rooting for is "Onward."

    The Golden Globes will be back despite the current issue with public health. It will be a Zoom awards show. I think many types of common media such as the NFL draft for example have figured out how to do what they do safely, and keep the audience engaged at the same time.

    I'm happy to see that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will once again host the Gold Globes. They're definitely my favorite. Typically the awards show is held on the first Sunday of the year, but this one was pushed back to Feb 28th. This will also be the first time that the show will be broadcast from two coasts, rather than Beverly Hills, California where it's typically held. Fey will be hosting from Rockefeller Center, and Poehler will be hosting from the Beverly Hilton. This is the fourth time Fey and Poehler have hosted this event.
