I so want to see that. He was my personal hero when I was a kid.
I'm nearly 41 now, so my formative years when I was watching Mr. Rogers were generally the early 80s, so pretty much the middle of his run. Definitely had a profound impact on me and many others of my generation and even the previous and later ones who were able to watch reruns of the show.Obviously with this as an internet forum, I'm not sure of your age, but the small theater I was in held probably 3-5 generations of neighbors who grew up with Mr. Rogers. It was a beautiful sight to see.
The entire documentary blends humor with sadness and heartbreak, alongside deeply personal interviews with those who knew him best. It served me as a nostalgic reminder of the lessons I learned with him on my television, but also provided insight to the aspects of Fred Rogers that as a child I would never have known.
The new Will Ferrell-John C. Reilly film Holmes & Watson is apparently so bad (currently at a 9% on Rotten Tomatoes) that not even Netflix would buy the film after Sony tried to unload it to the streaming site.
Any films other IL readers have walked out of?
Had I not been with my kids, I was walking on Star Wars Episode 1 when I realized Jar Jar was there for good. The same with "Love Actually." What freaking dreck.
Ian, any predictions for the Oscars tomorrow night?
