Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Running On Empty'
With the Oscars being announced this week it felt right to check out a flick that all but screams Academy Award worthy on all accounts from way back in 1988 – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick!

From a cast all giving the best work of their very amazing careers to a director at the peak of his helming prowess, this is one that truly celebrates all that’s great about memorable movies. Nothing is more effective than a film about family – it’s…"Running On Empty."

Sidney Lumet: 1924-2011: The movies have lost one of their magical masters. Dramatic wunderkind Director Sidney Lumet, who sadly died on Saturday April 9, 2011 at the age of 86 after suffering from lymphoma, was a classic old school filmmaker.

And even though he never won an Oscar for his amazing directing (he got the 'Honorary Award' in 2005)...
