Confess Fletch Tuesday, Oct 11 2022 

This is a fun movie and establishes Jon Hamm’s credentials as a comic actor-although I loved him in Mad Men. The dialogue in this movie deserves its own reward. I was glad to see that it showed an appreciation of past work by Chevy Chase but went even further on its own merits. Excellent character work by Marcia Gay Harden.

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.

Where the Crawdads Sing Thursday, Sep 8 2022 

This is an exceptional film. Reese Witherspoon as producer, has shown once again good taste in choice of story. All of the actors show that they are up to the task of telling this remarkable tale. Did she or didn’t she? I’ll leave that up to you to decide. The girl’s talent and survivability when left alone to fend for herself is almost unbelievable. And the North Carolina swamplands provide a mysterious backdrop.

Daisy Edgar-Jones and David Strathairn (reminiscent of Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird) deserve special mention.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo Friday, Aug 19 2022 

This series is most entertaining and original. The main character is quite something – she is autistic and very high functioning. She is in fact often brilliant. And when she is inspired she is most forceful. Normally I am not a fan of cute – but in this case I make an exception. She is played by a very talented actress and supported by good direction and writing .

Unorthodox Wednesday, Jul 13 2022 

This is an exceptional film. Well, I’ll start by saying I would have a lot of trouble being a Hasidic Jew.

Too many rules – many of which make little sense – an absolutely male oriented society – no feminists allowed. We follow a young newly married pregnant girl with a deep love of music who runs away from all she knows to see what lies ahead for her out of her element. I must say I as a lapsed Catholic, at the age of 18, wouldn’t have had the courage she has shown in this quest for self-actualization.

This series has won a lot of well – deserved awards. The lead actress is deeply talented..

Good Luck to You Leo Grande Monday, Jun 27 2022 

Emma Thompson plays an uptight widow who decides she wants the attentions of a sex worker. She lucked out with a very attractive , patient and unflappable male for hire. She is quite nervous and uneasy as I would imagine anyone would be. She is a woman who had a very non passionate sex life with her deceased husband. Leo Grande does all he can to calm her and doesn’t force the issue. By the fourth encounter she has blossomed and we get to see Leo’s vulnerability and past. It’s a satisfying film. for adults, of course. Fine acting and writing.

the Time Travelers Wife Tuesday, May 17 2022 

This is one of the best new offerings this season, if not the best. 2 very engaging characters interact in space and time – nude and clothed – with some very jaunty dialogue. It’s a breath of fresh air. There’s so much murder and mayhem on the tube this is a great respite. And I must say the nudity is handled very tastefully showing just so much of Mr. Theo James’s physique as modesty would allow. I hope that the powers that be can keep the humor and good times rolling. Can’t wait for the next instalment!

Under the Banner of Heaven Saturday, May 7 2022 

Andrew Garfield is excellent as an LDS cop. His sidekick is a native American non-believer who tends to add some outsider thoughts to what is going on in this Utah community. A young Mormon girl from Idaho becomes engaged to a fellow who is in a rather strict Latter Day Saints family in Utah. She comes off as more level – headed than the rest of the family she is marrying into. She seeks to work for a local television station. There are a number of males in this family attracted to this newcomer. Well there is a double murder and our cop duo try to solve this.

It seems like everything is a cop drama these days, but I must say this one kept me riveted.

1883 Monday, Jan 24 2022 

Sometimes I think we have it pretty rough in the present day what with Covid and all . But I’m glad I’m not living in 1883. Rudimentary birth control- Rampant disease – The role of women was much more limited – travel across country was on horse or wagon train – Bandits and Native Americans after those who had a lot to deal with just to cross a river safely. Sam Elliot is very very good as the melancholic wagon train master – I also like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and Isabel May. Isabel does a very good job of showing a budding woman with a mind of her own who can wrangle cattle with the best of them.
