When Time Ran Out... (1980) (part 5 of 8)

Meanwhile at Mona’s, Tiny still has to get to his cockfight on this busy morning. At length, the bets are dispensed with and the fight commences. Cue Tiny, Kelly, Sam, Mona, and lots of other people urging on the roosters. But enough of that, because before the match even starts we cut away. [?]

When Time Ran Out... (1980) (part 5 of 8)

“We’ll give you all the money we have, if you’ll just help us get out of this movie!”

Back at the hotel, Shelby (sporting a white suit of his own now) stops by Bob’s office to tell him he’s come from seeing Webster. He’s okay and is already back on the job. [!] Shelby says Webster told him the accident wasn’t serious, and was just a problem with the cable. Bob says that’s true, but Shelby calls him out on it. “I’m in the partner business! I can’t be in 64 resorts at the same time! I have to rely on what my partners tell me! Up to a point. And if I come to feel they’re lying, I call in the cards!”

“Do it!” screams Bob. See, that kind of comment would be a little suspicious to me. Bob calls Webster up at the crater to settle the matter. He asks him what the latest readings are.

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
