Thanks for all the movies you've posted & provided the links for. It is truly appreciated. I downloaded most of the ones I wanted but I didn't get them all but I do have the links. I'm going to try to access that website again while we're over there.

I posted a goodbye to AWL a few minutes ago but rather than try to find the others here & write the same thing over again can you pass our goodbyes along to the others please? I'd appreciate it.

So to LoveMetv22, KJExpress, MrsPhilHarris, PacificSun & AWL thanks for being our MeTv friends. I hope I didn't forget someone. We always have fun talking to all of you & playing the Friday quizzes. Everyone stay safe & have fun. We'll see you all again in a few months. Ciao! 😀

Will do. Hopefully can get to those other movies and on the METV web site. There is another idea for the next time. I know you don't like to put them on a phone but what you do is load them there and when you get to Italy or another PC you can just load them on PC device and remove from phone. You are probably going to need 30-60 G of space for 40-50 movies. Some are less then a G while others might be up to 3 G. Today I just lost about 150 movies. An uploader is no longer on IA for reasons I do not know. I will find most of them again. I only download the ones I really love. We are talking 40 on PC and 60 on cell.

Have a nice trip Moody and Tessa.

Tonight's Movie Quiz
This is a gritty film filled with desperate people who solve their problems with their fists or some other weapon. Small-time hoods are a dime-a-dozen and cops routinely beat confessions out of the crooks. Getting caught-up in a murder investigation seems as natural as breathing.

As for the stars we have them, You betcha. Plus a top director of these times. For the life of me I can't remember what decade this movie is in "cough" Though for sure it's back a spell. Movie genre is well known- Crime, Drama and Film-Noir. The good ones. Of course there's a dame and a detective too. One who is attempting to change the ways his father used to operate. Good luck with that. Many co-actors who became famous not long after this. One having a TV show that lasted years and had Michael Douglas in it. Another known as a toughie and in Westerns and other genre movies., try Kansas City Confidential, The Tin Star, TZ and many other movies and TV series to boot. Though minor characters they help bring out the best in this film.

Though both stars do not personally have an Oscar they both have played together in other movies that won them. So Mr. Detective flick your Bic (no they did not have Bic's back then) and give that dame er lady a light. Yahoo we have a real film-noir.
I'm done cluing. The rest is up to you!

10/10 My favorite episode when I was a teen. I thought it would be cool to have that stopwatch. But there's always that chance that I would break it.
Well, if you stop and think about it, it's kinda stupid! First of all, who the hell is this Potts character and why does he give this stopwatch to McNulty? Secondly, what's the purpose of showing it off when no one knows that it's working? Finally, is it really that bad when the watch breaks? It seems Mcnulty has the whole world to himself, and unlike Burgess Meredith, he doesn't have to worry about broken eyeglasses ["It's not fair! It's just not fair!"]!
Many episodes of TTZ are silly, but I still enjoy them.

"Finally, is it really that bad when the watch breaks?" Well, yeah! Didn't you see McNulty panicking? I certainly wouldn't want to be alone in this world, either.
