I wasn't fond of the original PS until I saw the remake. To be honest, I was extremely let down. I won't go into details as I'll blow a gasket and tick off the folks who enjoyed it. I rewatched PS one again and again if only to hear Jud's stories in his wonderful accent. There WERE some good bits...it wasn't all bad.

I felt this way about the recent sequel to It. Thanks to watching shows like Bones and learning that a cleft chin is hereditary and not something you develop, the second part of the movie It didn't quite work for me; they chose an actress with a cleft chin whereas the younger Bev did not have one. I know - weird observation, right? The rest of the movie was good though.

I get it, but Bones (while a great series) isn't 100 percent accurate. Much of it is BUT! LOL, My son had his father's pronounced cleft until he was 9 or 10, then his chin became more rounded and longer like mine. Now he's in his 20's and looks nothing like either of us. He looks like my mother! who resembles a Spanish Canadian Indian. A gorgeous combination... take care.

Okay - guess I can watch that movie again without any angst :m_facial: - little details like that are rather superficial.

Hope you have a great weekend! Out here in Manitoba they are talking about reopening some things soon (we only have about 290 cases of the Covid) [or as my son keeps called it "The Covert"]

:peaceful: Take care of yourself, eh?

Sorry - just had to throw that in since you and I are Canucks :sentimental:
