RIP – Omar Sharif


I read that movie star Omar Sharif passed away last week. He was 83. Here is the link to obit in the NY Times. Mr Sharif had an Oscar nomination for his role in “Lawrence of Arabia”.  Here’s the link to his entry on IMDB.

So in our household we are doing an Omar Sharif film festival this week starting with “Lawrence of Arabia” Here’s the link to the trailer. Watching this film first because it was available for free on Amazon Instant Prime. We’ve only watched the first half so far. The movie is 3 hours and 45 minutes long. Oh my aching butt. Thankfully, they don’t make movies that long any more. This is a film that belongs on the big screen. Our 32″ TV just doesn’t do it justice. Here’s the link to the trailer on IMDB.

Then we’re going to watch “Funny Girl” which we just got on DVD. Buying older films on DVD is as about as cheap as renting on Amazon Instant video, Here’s the link to the IMDB entry. Also, Paula is a big fan of Barbra Streisand

And finally, we will be watching “Doctor Zhivago”. Here’s the link to the IMDB entry. This movie is also on the long side at 3 hours and 16 minutes. DVD ordered.

Other movies on our watch list include all of the Minions movies. (Despicable Me, et al.). Maybe the kid in me is breaking out to go see the animated films. Minions rock!
