ABOUT LAST NIGHT
Murray was under consideration for the role of Danny Martin, the restaurant-supply salesman played by Rob Lowe, in this 1986 big-screen adaption of David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago. At various points in the development process, John Belushi and Nick Nolte were attached to costar Danny's friend Bernie Litgo. That part went to James Belushi, who had played it on stage. Negotiations with Murray apparently broke down after a disastrous meeting between Murray and Nolte in New York.

  12. I love Billy Murray but I don't think I could see him as the guy in Dead Zone..Christopher Walkens was awesome. I bet this is a fun book. :)

  13. I can't picture Bill Murray in a "serious" role. He's so funny, I only see him as a comedic actor.

    Happy 4th.:)

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
