Pic of the Day


Jeff Wells did it, I think.
No further comments.

Making Boyhood


A good way to describe Boyhood is that it is special.
Pretty basic isn't it? But it is.

Rave Reviews


Look at all those rave reviews!
This seems quite the challenging film.

Knight of Cups


You know what? Emmanuel Lubezki.
That's the first thing that comes to mind.
Then, that it looks crazy and insanely rich. Kind of.
Possibly a lot of worthy performances to watch. 
The beauty of these films are really the challenge of it, I think. Though I have this really strange feeling because ever since I saw To the Wonder trailer, I found it so ridiculously laughable...It was after watching The Tree of Life and finding it earth shattering. Completely opposite feelings. So, I don't really know. But I want to see this one (though it will be hard).

Thanks Parks Crew


Ladies and Gentlemen, it is happening.
It is coming to an end.
Thank you ALL for the brilliancy and for making me laugh so much, I had probably the best giggles of my life. No joke. In addition to the laugh, I learned so much with Parks and Recreation. So much. I grew up with Parks and Recreation, I started to appreciate life and its comic tones with Parks.
Thank you all.

Ridiculous History


Ava DuVernay as the first Black Female nominated for Best Director (only the fifth woman) at the Golden Globe Film Awards.

It is what it is and well, if there is such history, today, one couldn't and shouldn't be more glad than that person be someone like Ava DuVernay. Right? No matter how frustating this history might be!

Update:
As I said, about Ava DuVernay being the right kind of person for this frustating history, here is her response to her Golden Globe nomination:
"The "first" of it all is the bittersweet part. I'm certainly not the first black woman deserving of this. You can't tell me that since 1943 there's not been another black woman who's made something worthy of this kind of recognition. But for whatever reason it hasn't happened. The time is now. I thank them for recognizing Selma. I just hope … that we get through all the 'firsts,' that we can just get to the good stuff and that people can just make their work and move on from [that conversation]."

The Art of Loosing


“In this world, there’s a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we’ve left behind, and dreaming ahead. At least I think that’s so...”
Still Alice is so worth the time. Go watch it.
