The ghost of George Sanders reminds you to link your films, and that one should feel free to move on if bored.

May be because I am somewhat a train aficionado, I saw everything you describe as the perfect backdrop - along with the hot dog truck - for these three incredible performances.
The hotdog guy brought the comic relief.
Good performances all around. A side trivia note: Rock/folk singer, Neil Young, bought out Lionel Trains: http://thrasherswheat.org/tfa/trains-neil-young-1993.htm
That sounds like something Neil would do.
Good independent film. I liked the relationships between the three.4 stars.
I haven't cried for years but this film brought tears to my eyes. The special effects are well done, the score is bit too generic at times but I loved the piece at the end with the female vocalist who sounds like a Chinese Enya. The acting is believable except for the Canadian lawyer who talks like a robot. The story tears your heart out.
Running On Empty (2010): Cute Japanese romantic comedy (of sorts) about a manipulative girl who wants to break up with her boyfriend - but not before he pays back all the money he owes her. Pretty low-key for the most part but very funny. 4/5
Thought that title looked familiar.There was a drama from the 80s with the same title Running on Empty with Hirsch and River Phoenix.
The last 3 movies I watched were
Live! (3/5) - Decent but not great showbiz drama/mockumentary that doesn't quite know where it wants to go or what it wants to be.TV exec tries to get russian roulette on air.
Oceans Eleven (2001) (4/5) - Still haven't seen the original.Liked the style, and enjoyed the cast and movie as a whole.However at 2 hours felt a bit long, and had some ensemble cast trappings (too many characters, too few developed which can lead to excess scenes)
The Last Supper (3/5) - Decent but not great dark comedy with meaningless subplot about a group of people who invite one person over and if they are inherently evil they kill them.Basically the idea of if you could go back in time and met Hitler before he did anything bad, would you kill him?
Jailhouse Rock--Elvis Presley film on TCM last night, good songs, good choreography, good movie.
Elvis: Return to Tupelo--I caught off PBS, which detailed his early life and his rise to fame, I'm not a huge Elvis fan, but found this pretty interesting as well. Enjoyed the 50's vibe.
One of the best "women's" films which were popular during WWII.Nice, even storytelling. Well acted all the way around. Excellent performance by my favorite actress, Bette Davis.
. . . and, of course, Bette Davis and Miriam Hopkins had such great affection for each other . . .
