  I love watching the Oscars. I enjoy watching the show to see the different gowns the people in the audience will be wearing. I am also interested in the awards themselves, to see whether I will agree with “The Academy’s” choice of best picture, best actor etc. And, if I haven’t seen a movie that received awards, I will tend to see it after the Oscars.       I am also an avid reader of movie reviews. Often, when a movie is first released, I will read the reviews before deci...

  Fred posted a picture on Instagram that made me smile. It was a picture of Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka from the original film, “Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.” “Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory” definitely stands out, for me, as one of my favorite films of all time. It is one of those films that I am guaranteed to stop at if I am aimlessly channel surfing. I know that, as Fred’s picture did, watching it will make me smile.     What film guarantees you a smile...

I think the internet has changed the importance and use of movie trailers. Before the internet, a trailer would come on television a few weeks before the movie was released. Or, we saw move trailers in theaters before seeing a movie. Now there are previews of the trailers, release dates for the trailers, and multiple trailers. Movie trailers have become a huge internet marketing tool.   I admit that I play right into the trailer marketing. As a self professed science fiction...

It’s Sunday afternoon and I’m watching my husband prepare meat and fish for a bar-b-que. All four of our children are coming for dinner with their significant others.   When the kids were young, Sunday dinner was always a must; whether we were cooking dinner or bringing in food. No matter what the kids had to do, reports, homework etc., it all had to be put away for Sunday dinner. In a house with four kids and four different schedules, Sunday dinner was the time that we coul...

  An article in the New York Times on Sunday referenced the movie, “Peggy Sue Got Married.” I loved that movie and have not probably not seen it since it was released in 1986. In the film, Peggy Sue (played by Kathleen Turner) is magically sent back in time from her twenty-fifth high school reunion to high school. The twist in the film is that she is sent back to high school with all of the knowledge as to what would happen to her in the following twenty-five years.     Whi...

It’s that time of the year again, summer blockbuster time. Don mentioned it last week when he wrote about seeing “Jurassic World.” It’s that time when the huge movies are released. They are meant to totally captivate you and bring you into their world. And for two hours you’re transplanted to somewhere else and your sense of what’s going on in your world disappears. I will never forget the first time I saw “Independence Day.” I was so caught up in what was going on i...

It happened again a few nights ago. I was having some trouble sleeping so I began channel surfing. As I came upon one certain movie, I knew my surfing would come to an end. I can never seem to get past it. Whenever it comes up on my television screen, I have to stop and watch it. The movie was “Goodfellas.” I have seen it more times than I can count. I can even recite certain parts of the dialogue. Yet, I still stop to watch it whenever I come across it. “Goodfellas,...

If I’m running a bit slow this morning it’s because I stayed up last night to watch the Oscars. And while I love the show itself, it’s really the walking of the red carpet that I love the most. I am not sure why I enjoy watching the celebrities but it is an annual tradition for me. I pour myself a glass of wine, sit in front of our high definition television with whichever child will tolerate watching with me, and enjoy my guilty pleasure for the next few hours. ...
