Suur Reede

The movie line-up on Kanal 2 for Good Friday, a national holiday for this otherwise agnostic nation, is:

  • -Krippendorf's Tribe (1998) with the always annoying Richard Dreyfuss,
  • -The Crocodile Hunter (2002) with the late Steve Irwin, who was memorialized here in Tapa last fall by being the topic of one of my multiple choice clozes,

  • -Vice Versa (1988) with Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage - a father and a son who exchange bodies - as well as Richard Kind, whom I saw at Chicago's Goodman Theatre in Stephen Sondheim's Bounce!,

-MacGyver: Lost Treasures of Atlantis (1994) with Richard Dean, who made a comeback as Jack O'Neil in the Saturday afternoon sci-fi tv show Stargate SG-1, which, ironically, evolved into Stargate Atlantis, where Dr. Elizabeth Weir ain't no Captain Janeway but still she's putting in yeoman service,

-Grumpy Old Men (1993) with the odd couple Lemon and Matthau,

-Money Talks (1997) with the sharp-talking Chris Tucker (or is it Chris Rock), and

-You've Got Mail (1998), which seems to be run ad nauseam in every country in the Western world.

On the other hand, errrr, channel, ETV, the Estonian PBS station, is showing Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, which I have never seen. So, since it's bloody snowing outside this afternoon, I'm curled up on the couch in front of my Finlux television with a blanket and cup of tea.
