The Father Tuesday, Mar 30 2021 

Anthony Hopkins is exceptionally good in this movie based on a theatre play. It is quite cleverly done . The way the characters are shuffled around the audience becomes as confused as the Alzheimer’s patient. I would expect to see an Oscar nomination. The wealth of emotion and intelligence in this portrayal is striking.

Condor Tuesday, Mar 23 2021 

Another series that successfully reconfigures the work in the movie – past. In this case “Six Days of the Condor”. Max Irons is engaging as the lead – He has good genes in his favor. William Hurt adds a touch of class as well as other veteran actors. Good writing, great pace. Action adventure fans – rejoice!

Out of the Wild Tuesday, Mar 23 2021 

A heart warming tale of a recovering alcoholic in the west and a lady love who helps his recovery. Of course there is a villain – who is defeated by our hero. A nice way to spend an afternoon.

Got my 1st covid 19 shot Friday, Mar 12 2021 

It was a non event so far… crossing my fingers and toes. Sore arm and a little tired. I’ll keep you posted.

Penguin Bloom Saturday, Feb 27 2021 

I invariably like Naomi Watt’s work. This is a little gem of a film. And it is based on a true story. Through the love and concern of a bird (repaying the rescue of said bird when very young).a very depressed woman and her children learn to handle all the woe and drawbacks of being wheel- chair bound. And Sam was very active before her accident – an accomplished surfer. Then the mynah bird , Penguin, enters the scene and slowly but surely wins everyone’s hearts. A great film for the kids to watch with you.

Several years ago I was a very busy lampworker (= making glass beads with a special torch). Now due to health concerns ( nothing communicable) I’ve had to stop. Hence I have returned to bead weaving where I started. I also used to free- lance graphic design. My husband has uncovered some of my work, of which I am very proud. It was in storage. And now I hope there is someone out there that appreciates my muse. My favorite on this page is the Wood Nymph necklace. The shoes are made by another artist in Southern Oregon, but I don’t recall her name unfortunately.

I Care A Lot Monday, Feb 22 2021 

I’m not a fan of Game of Thrones… but I really felt Peter Dinklage is exceptionally good in this film as a Russian Mafioso . Of course , Rosamund Pike is also outstanding as the villain in this piece as well as Dianne Wiest (in an unusual role for her) as the criminal’s mother. Good performances all around. Being an aging baby boomer , the plot is pretty scary. A scheming woman and her lover have a plot to swindle aging people out of their money and homes by casting aspersions on their mental health i.e. dementia. I hope no one gets ideas from this film. But both sides are bad guys, I guess the redeeming point for Dinklage’s character is his love and his need to protect his mother,
