Movies...

Last weekend, Cheryl and I enjoyed a very rare weekend with nothing to do. So, we spent most of Sunday watching old movies. One of the old movies we watched with "Stage Door" with Ginger Rogers, Katharine Hepburn, Eve Arden and Lucille Ball. It's a movie I've seen a couple of times and I enjoy it each and every time.

The fast paced speech and one line wisecracks makes one wonder why they don't make movies like this anymore. Why is it that most of the movies advertised have buildings blowing up or families in torment? What happened to good writing?

I think good writing has gone the way of special effects -- meaning that they (the movie makers) are spending so much money on special effects, they don't have any left for character development and writing.

And, that's just a shame.

God Bless

Jennifer Hudson, just sounds like an Oscar Winner...

As you probably know, I don't watch American Idol. I didn't even know who Jennifer Hudson was until I saw a layout about Dreamgirls in Entertainment Weekly.

But, as I was reading an article about the SAG Awards winners (Jennifer Hudson won one), I was thinking, "And the Oscar goes to Jennifer Hudson" has a nice ring to it. Oh, sure, she's up against Cate Blanchett, who has more experience than she does. I still think she's deserving.

Although, I would like to see Abigail Breslin win because I believe it would make her the youngest Oscar winner.

And, really, in the scheme of my life, it won't make a difference on who wins, I just think
"And the Oscar goes to Jennifer Hudson" has a nice ring to it.

God Bless
