I've been away from my blog for quite a while now.....
Between 'Health Issues', which have kind of worn me out, and other stressful things that have been happening,
I just don't have the energy or desire to try and write a post.....
During this last 7 or 8 weeks, I got to watch a lot of films....I'm so very grateful to have been able to see almost all of the films up for Awards and winning many Awards already.
There are some very very good films this year, each of them hoping to pick up that
Golden Fellow known as OSCAR!
What to go and see or rent?
Here's a suggestion:
If you haven't already seen it,
give yourself the gift of---
"THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL"
This is a funny, endearing, delightful and beautifully filmed and edited picture that is pure joy!
There is a wonderful performance by Ralph Fiennes---brilliant, really....
Fiennes is handsome and charming and utter perfection as the Greatest Concierge of any Hotel, ever, ever---anywhere in the entire world!
He can make you laugh out loud, and a second later.....bring you to tears!
There are lots of fun 'name' actors in this film--some in very small parts----but, all, important!
It is a brilliant ensemble, and
it's a truly 'Original', (in every way) Screenplay by Wes Anderson, who also directed it.
It is gorgeous to look at---the production design and the sets and the costumes---plus the fantastic editing all add up to a feast for the eyes, and a truly special film experience.
This is a 'feel good' movie that is a welcome change from many of the so called serious and somewhat depressing films available right now.
There are nine inspiring films vying for the Best Picture Award.....
All worth seeing.....
"The Grand Budapest Hotel" stands alone in it's 100% entertainment quotient!
Top notch in every way.
Will it win Best Picture?
Should it win Best Picture?
(in my humble opinion)
It absolutely should!!
Oh, do try to see this, if you haven't already, before Sunday February 22nd.....
More To Come........
Note: I thank all of you dear sweet wonderful people for your concern and encouragement and your heartfelt caring....These are hard days, but knowing you are out there sending all of these sweet messages, means everything!
I thank each and every one of you with all of my heart.....!
Not sure how soon I will be posting again----time will tell....
And I promise to visit you, when I can....
Sending big hugs to you all.......
