Will the Real Keanu Reeves please stand up? Saturday, Sep 10 2022 

Anyone with an interest in film has a picture in their mind of who Keanu is- his public image – But is this the real guy.? He’s supposed to be kind, humble and self – effacing. Although Facebook, especially, has its share of Keanu imposters. So one never knows if the person you are texting with is the real dude or not. I’ve heard he’s very generous with various charities. I applaud that. I’ve also heard people say he is very modest and doesn’t think his wealth is that important to him. In New York you could see him on the subway like any other dude. His living arrangements in New York are said to be modest.. His Hollywood Hills home looks nice but not conspicuously mansion like .

Things like “I don’t need you” “I don’t want to know anything about you” indicating that I wasn’t important enough to deal with came out of his computer. All this was recent. This negative stuff is a new wrinkle. .A couple of months ago I received some nice, short emails from him. Very polite and what I would expect. Now this is the guy who attended a wedding in Great Britain spontaneously when he was tired from a long flight and passed out pieces of birthday cake to passerbye’s on the street on his birthday! I don’t think the person I texted recently was the real Keanu. So I apologize if this real recent communication wasn’t you. And I must say if it was, I hope you were just having a bad day. Oh, and one give away was that this person seems to be very into money and investments – and Keanu in the past, has said he is embarrassed almost with the amount of money he makes……. He has no worries in that department.

Belfast Wednesday, Dec 8 2021 

.

Kenneth Branagh is a brilliant director. And as I’ve said before, he’s a welcome visitor in my teepee. (Old Ladies Joke). He has done so much – acting, directing, Shakespeare that communicates. Evidentally he appears to have grown up in Belfast , Northern Ireland in the time of the “Troubles”. But this is not all violence and gore. There is definitely some of that. .But there is plenty of comic relief. It comes across as real life. Judi Dench is incredibly good as Grandma. And Grandpa was also very warmly portrayed.

And I must say I love the Irish brogue – wee this and wee that. Isn’t anything large? Well I was hugely entertained – it’s in black and white but it didn’t seem to be wrong. See it!

The young actor who portrays him growing up is also brilliant. This movie just rings true. Even in the worst of times there are times of relief with humor and high jinks.

Cry Macho Sunday, Sep 19 2021 

I don’t think that this is the best film he’s done – but this is a pleasant little film. Mr. Eastwood’s character is asked by an old friend to locate and return his son – who is somewhere in Mexico. It’s a road picture. Old man , teenage Mexican. The kindness of strangers also figures in this film in the Senora who most graciously feeds them. My favorite line is ” I can’t cure OLD”. I don’t agree with his politics – but even in advanced age – Mr. Eastwood is a fine actor and director.

the Butler and Sunday nights Sunday, Jan 26 2014 

Re: the Butler It’s a well done movie, but it didn’t give me goosebumps… It did point out the difference between the older “don’t rock the boat” generation and the “freedom riders”.

On TV On Sundays we have all the heavy hitters on at once. Downton Abbey, the Good Wife, sometimes Sherlock and True Detective vie with each other.They are all superb. Thank heavens for On Demand. Also may I say this seems to be Matthew McConaughey’s year

"Mud" Photocall - 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Prisoners Saturday, Jan 18 2014 

th A fine film. Very skillfully acted and directed. Both of the leads were outstanding. A different role for Hugh Jackman. Somewhat disturbing in subject matter and violence. In my mind not for kids. The question kind of was who’s torturing who?

Newsroom Monday, Jul 1 2013 

We only get HBO of the premium channels and are catching up on the first season. Jeff Daniels is superb. No airhead anchor here. Bravo. Always thought provoking and on the dime of reasonably current events. Sam Waterston doesn’t disappoint either, elder statesman that he is. He is superb. And when Jane Fonda does brief appearances  it is special. And of course everyone is great in the supporting cast. GREAT television. Mr. Sorkin has a winner after the West Wing….. Can’t wait for season 2.

the Oranges Tuesday, May 14 2013 

Well, first of all, I admire Mr. Laurie’s acting ability very much. Unfortunately in this film his gifts are somewhat unused. Maybe its me, but I didn’t find the young lady’s charms that mesmerizing nor Mr. Laurie’s character’s attraction that convincing. It was portrayed as a dalliance that unfortunately upset a lot of people’s apple carts. The role of the daughter of the offending father was well done as well as Allison Janney’s role of too manipulative mother.  The girl who sinned was unapologetic and immature and hence to me unappealing. But then at that age…..we all are immature. Now Cuddy and House had real passion going for them. “Real” in the theatrical sense. Well, that’s my view, feel free to differ.
