    The reunion scene between Dumbo and Mama Elephant in the original animated film never fails to bring tears to my eyes.

    The ending of every dog movie where the kid feels sad and goes outside and hears a distant bark in the distance, squints out into the woods and see the dog emerge over the horizon. As hackneyed as a frantic run through an airport or a shootout in a warehouse. and you know its coming ten miles away but I still well up like a sap every. single. time. Even Snoopy Come Home had a variation on this where Woodstock is whistling their little ease on down the road tune while flipping down the bird bath and then he hears Snoopy whistling his part. I am always reminded of this during the Come What May finale in Moulin Rouge which I feels plays out identically, and if I am a few beers in when either movie swells I am a puddle of tears and joy. Until….The….End….Of……….time.

"While most news media groups have been battered, a handful of premium publishers are holding their ground through the tempest. Backed by a subscription model built over the past decade, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal have so far decided against the mass lay-offs and pay cuts that have wracked the majority of their peers, and are even still looking to hire. “Bluntly: I was optimistic when we had half a million subscriptions. We now have ten times that and I’m still optimistic,” Mark Thompson, chief executive of the New York Times Company, told the Financial Times."

Richard Brody: "A curse of modern movies: people don't walk in and out of rooms, open and close doors, get in and out of cars, get and pay a check; it's Godard's fault because everyone copies him but lacks his powers of abstraction and artifice; they always want to be real so it comes off fake. Not literally everyone; and by now, it has become a convention and few, if any, even know where it comes from, who they're copying, let alone why."
