Time for another movie review of a not so old but good movie:  "Always".  This is an excellent remake of "A Guy Named Joe" from WW2.  In 'Always' Richard Dreyfuss, John Goodman, and Holly Hunter are part of an air tanker group in the west flying WW2 A-26 Invader twin engine fire bombers (John Goodman has a PBY).  Holly is the sweetheart of the flying circus and has a thing for Richard but he just can't commit to a romantic relationship.  Then he dies in a fiery crash.  End of the movie?  Not quite.  He is assigned as the unseen mentor for a young man who joins the air tanker wing  in Richard's place which Richard is happy to do until he realizes that the guy is getting ready to put the moves on Holly.  Now he's not happy at all.

Great flying scenes in classic warbirds and great, great on screen chemistry between Dreyfuss and Hunter.  This movie was Audrey Hepburn's last film appearance. 

 If you are a sap for romance, cheezy dialog, and flying like me, this is the movie for you but you'll have to find it on Netflix.
