    The Tender Bar

    ★★

    “George Clooney! You been reading about all that, you been seein that?”

    “George Clooney?”

    “Yeah, He’s up there, with the Congress, he’s trying to get everybody to go over there and uh, solve that thing.”

    Still a great clip, never gets old
    “It’s not that busy.”

Some…

    Dick Tracy

    ★★★★

    2 revisits this week and 2 great Danny Elfman scores. I didn’t give much thought to who created the scores when I first saw Batman and Dick Tracy, but the signature sound is unmistakable now. This one may be superior to Batman, though not as well known. Hard to go wrong with any Elfman score during this time. The actual plot of ‘Dick Tracy’ is paper thin, but the film comes through in other ways, with the star power and…
