Sadly, we pause from movies to say goodbye again to an actor who dedicated his life to entertaining the world through his characters.
Richard Attenborough passed at the age of 90 on Aug 24.
When I mentioned him in conversation this week, I have gotten many different replies: Who?
The Jurassic Park guy?
We here at LTBM said our farewells to comedian and actor Robin Williams this last week. However, I wanted to be sure to also recognize one of Hollywood’s intriguing ladies from the silver screen, Lauren Bacall. Being the eldest of our blog group I find that I have a different advantage over the other writers: age. Growing up I had a mother, grandparents, and great-grandparents that all enjoyed the classic movies. Our TV was often found on the channels that played the movies that were known before color was introduced to films.
Quick note: I would have had his posted sooner, but our vacation fell at the time of writing my review.

Time travel with awesome affects is probably the best way I can describe X-Men: Days of Future Past.
I have already read a couple different “fanboy” sites where the movie is getting beat up because it doesn’t hold true to the 1981 comic story line.

When I told the founder of our movie blog that I was reviewing Carbine Williams for today’s post, I was not shocked by his reply: “What is Carbine Williams? Never heard of it.” I am sure many reading this have never heard of it either.
In comics there’s an era called “The Silver Age”. People can tell you comic number, story plot, writers, and artists of many of them, especially when it’s a first appearance of a superhero.
In comparison, “The Silver Age” of movies is often overlooked; except for those few cult classics that continue to have followings.
Carbine Williams is one of these “Silver Age” films that few know about that are not in their 70’s.
In 1950… Yes 5 0… the actor Jimmy Stewart heard the rumor that a biographical movie was being done about the inventor of the automatic rifle, M-1 Carbine. This rifle was carried by soldiers into WWII.
