Hello Sunshine! Happy Friday. Do you have any plans for the weekend? We are staying in. It’s been a rough week with the loss of Lauren Bacall & Robin Williams. The riots that are going on in St. Louis for the young gentleman, Michael Brown & the loss of the gentleman Michael Brown. I wanted to let you know of some movies that we have seen recently if you are planning to see a movie.
If you would like to see a classic & remember Lauren Bacall, To Have and Have Not is a
great classic to remember her with Humphrey Bogart.
If you would like to remember Robin Williams, I have always loved him in Good Will Hunting & Dead Poets Society. Funny, because he has given me so much joy in Birdcage, but I felt so much love in the other movies. He really tugged at my heart in the other movies.
When I feel my heart burn and my tears flow from someone who can make me laugh usually it makes me so out of the normal and realize that this is someone that can really is an amazing actor. He also did so much out of acting that I know he was an extraordinary gentleman.
These movies may be available on Amazon or Netflix as a stream, but if you have the DVD’s that is even better.
The movie that is available on Netflix DVD loan is Le Weekend, but it is also available on cable TV rentable movies/Pay-Per-View. It is a great
movie about an older couple spending the weekend in Paris. They have some adventures and they are just like any other couple. Very entertaining & is in English language.
Last week we saw A Man Most Wanted. This is a great Spy Thriller. If you like twists and turns this is the movie for you! This movie is set in Germany, but not in German language, so no need to read subtitles. This was one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last movies, I believe. He was always a terrific actor. I would always see his name on a movie & knew I wanted to see it just for him. Yes, his portrayal in Capote was wonderful, but he was fantastic in Doubt, The Savages & Charlie Wilson’s War.
My absolute favorite movie in theaters now is Boyhood. I know, you are thinking I am favoriting because I am an Austinite. Not true! This really is a great movie. The way Linklater made this movie over a 12 year span documenting a family is absolutely wonderful! This is a modern family and also seems like a normal family. A modern and normal young man who goes through his boyhood. I could not help but think of my child hood growing up & then thinking of my son growing up. I know this movie started in limited release, but I think it is out at more theaters now. I do hope you find it where you are and I do hope you see it soon.
Let me know what movie you see, if you go out, I always love a movie recommend, or if you see a movie~ take a pic at the theatre and tag me in you Instagram @princessmousey.
Well, that is all I have for you now.
Lots of love,
