Last episode we looked at kids seeking immortality through music, but this time we just skip all that hippie crap and get straight to how Blake Lively does it in THE AGE OF ADALINE. This inspires a look back at Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn trying to conquer the aging process for reasons of vanity in DEATH BECOMES HER, going up against Hugh Jackman making the conquering of death the ultimate quest of love for Rachel Weisz and has him traveling through time and space in THE FOUNTAIN. Michael Denniston and Emily Mackay also debate the ending of THE WOMAN IN GOLD, coming to the conclusion that it should have ripped off the final scene of KILLING THEM SOFTLY.
