I never moved from this movie. But, I could never ever watch it twice because it is so unnerving I would need sedatives. :) Wow, it is based on fact and truth. What a life to live. The ending is incredible. This movie is NOT good for your health, I won't sleep tonite. It keeps you on the edge. It shows, their really is good in all people.

It is, The Pianist.

I am home sick. I have been home sick for a few days now. I got a sore throat and I can't ... eat anything and get it down. LOL. I took a Tylenol and it was stuck in there for a day, not helping the pain or the fever. So, I made a peanut butter sandwich thinking it would unstick it, then, while chewing it, I thought, " what if the sandwich gets stuck," I will become a skinny Mama Cass. Did that really happen to her? I hope not. She was a great singer.

I rented the movie, The Caller. Save your $! I want my money back. I am going to wait on the new movie, The Zookeeper.

... the pill plus, sandwich went down, :) but, the movie put me to sleep. It was really stupid.

The best movie in the entire world is an Italian movie (with English subtitles) called 'Life is Beautiful'.

America has also made some reasonably good movies like 'the Green Mile' and 'the Shawshank Redemption'.

life is beautiful Movie Synopsis
In 1939, Guido (Roberto Benigni) — an enchanting individual with childlike innocence and grand dreams of owning his own bookstore comes to the Tuscan town of Arezzo. He falls in love with Dora, a beautiful young schoolteacher (Nicoletta Braschi). Unfortunately, the woman he calls his “Princess” is already engaged. Worse, she is engaged to the local Fascist official with whom he has had a run-in. Guido, however, is not deterred and a fairy tale romance ensues.

Several years later Guido and Dora are married and have a son, and Guido has finally opened the bookshop of his dreams. But now, the occasional bigotries Guido once ignored have become Racial Laws with which he must come to terms. Throughout it all, he determines to shield his son from the brutal reality governing their lives. This determination becomes a matter of life and death when Guido and his son are sent to a concentration camp three months before the war’s end. Of her own accord, and out of her love for them, Dora deports herself on the same train.

Now, in this unimaginable world, Guido must use his bold imagination and every ounce of his indefatigable spirit to save those he loves.

Life is Beautiful received seven Academy Award nominations, winning three for Best Actor, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Dramatic Score.

Grandkids slept over Sat night, and we watched Zookeeper On Demand. It was funny, but one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. Actually fell asleep on it. Took the kiddies out to TGI Fridays. They emailed me a "Jump the line Pass", something new they have. Gave it to the hostess, and was whisked away to a table. I did not turn around to see any angry faces from others in the packed lobby, but I was uncomfortable (a little). I really didn't think the pass would be honored when I presented it. The kids like Fridays and Applebees.

DEFIANCE - one of the all time great true stories, very fair to the 2 or 3 books written on the subject of the only viable Jewish resistance in nowadays Belarus, then Poland. Read the book first or you might not believe it at all.

And don't forget Love and Death and Annie Hall by Woody Allen, amongst many others - including his latest set in England.

Shawshank is an all time great, but if you have a 6 year old son, its too hard to watch life is beautiful more than once.

One is an oldie with Cary Grant & Katherine Hepburn, they are great in it together, and it doesn't matter how many times I see it, I crack-up.

Bringing up Baby...
Made in 1938

The other is a new one, with Jim Carey,
Mr. Popper's Penguins! Very funny.

Shucks. lol.

but, now, I watched another movie, another tear jerker, but, i believe it is a good movie, even if, on the religious side. Called, Courageous.

One part in it, reminded me of me... a man, a cop in the movie, didn't dance with his girl, his daughter, but, then, after she passes away from a drunk driver he goes and dances with her, saying, he is doing his side... oh, boy... i had to leave the room.

Ever since my husband's death, 7 years ago now, I still reach over to the passenger seat, while driving, and tell him to hold my hand. And, I talk to him, telling him everything about my life, the kids, the cats, everything. And, he hasn't changed, he still thinks I can talk the legs off of a chair, lol.

It is comforting, but, I wonder what the people think, at redlights, lol :)

But, a movie, called 50/50 is one that I really related to. Obviously, for those who know of me. It is funny, sad, funny, sad, but, then, has a great happy ending...

http://www.50-50themovie.com/

Back in 98, I was told I would lose my hair. It didn't matter to me, I just didn't want to lose my life, I figured that is what hats are for. Forget the wigs, nah, not for me, nothing fake, I am the real deal. No fake nails, nah. No fake hair either. Or fake boobs. :)

But, I sat with a girl, also, with Lymphoma, who was on the same drugs, and she was losing her hair, and I wasn't.

I was born with alot of hair, and so it just thinned a bit, like the day I was standing outside with coworkers, they were smoking & drinking their coffees, needless, to say, I was just drinking a coffee... and, then, it happened. A big breeze and blew, long pieces of hair into everyone's cup.

No big thing. It was funny. :)

I left my hair grow, and it grew down to my waist, ON chemo! Debbie, the girl I was sitting with, did everything, to spare hers, dry shampoos, ice caps, insisting, I was doing something and wouldn't tell her...

She stopped speaking to me. I felt horrible, imagine that, chemo patients not talking, lol. So, I made friends with Neil, who sold insurance, and together we shot with our fingers, lemon drops across the room, out the hallway, and scored points when we hit the toilet or sink... lol, until, we were caught by Cathy, the chemo nurse and took away our fun.

So, if you have the courage, if you want to laugh at sometimes, very sad things, I recommend the movie 50/50. You will be entering into my world at your own risk. :)

...and, the why to why I didn't lose it all on my head, only God knows. I had one person who actually, believed, I didn't have cancer because I didn't go bald, lol, and another who said, " i would rather lose my hair, how do you know it is working?" Like, I um, had a choice in what my hair follicles does. :)

The Assassination of Jesse James was pretty interesting. I spent some time in MO, and saw the James Farm, and the graves. See if you can find the pics they would be interesting to see, if you can. At the farm, they reenacted the night when the Pinkerton's by horses, had thrown the fire bomb into the farm, injuring their mom, and killing little Archie, if I remember right.

It all started when they thought it was intentional poisoning that was killing off family members, but it was later found out that they had settled on land that was used for copper mining or something and the groundwater was poisoned by ther metals.

Here is a movie that will catch your attention. Made in 1995, with Jeff Goldblum, called, The Powder. Made me think of my high school days when, they thought I had cheated on an IQ test; and, LOL and, I had to do it again. Oh, the humanity.

It is a good movie. Well written, directed, and acting is superb. Story line is very different and interesting. I recommend it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder_(film)

Powder is a 1995 film directed by Victor Salva, about a boy, nicknamed "Powder," with incredible intellect, telepathy, and paranormal powers. It stars Sean Patrick Flanery in the title role, with Jeff Goldblum, Mary Steenburgen, Bradford Tatum, Lance Henriksen, and Brandon Smith in supporting roles. The film questions the limits of the human mind and body while also displaying our capacity for cruelty; it raises hope that humanity will advance to a state of better understanding.

Alright, if that movie didn't float your boat I got another. How ironic that I was asked to go rock climbing just yesterday at the Laurel Highlands, and here I am watching, a movie, which if my broken finger didn't influence my decision, this movie certainly, did. The Canyon.

As usual, I didn't see the beginning but, I can tell you the middle & ending will have you gripping onto your seat.

Cookie
07-14-2012, 05:11 PM
Now, if that movie doesn't satisfy you or meet your needs there is another one, actually, which takes place in Terry's neck of the woods. Seattle. It is called, Sleepless in Seattle. It is a sad movie with a happy ending. Shows lots of places in Seattle for those who haven't seen Seattle. Like me. There is a fish market there I would love to see along with the Space Needle. How ironic it was the last place my husband traveled to, did business in, and, I was supposed to go too, but, work prevailed. He really liked Seattle.

Now, I have seen this movie many times, and for those of you who have not, I would recommend it. Sad, but, if anyone lost their spouse like I did, it gives a small inspiration, a small hope, that you will find that certain someone again for a second chance of love and happiness. Magic, you will find magic.

Watch this movie, this chick flick, with a pizza, a pop, and a box of tissues.

In the movie, Hachi: A Dog's Tale, it shows that animals do grieve. I met with that when Tim died with his Bob the Cat. Bob stopped eating and drinking. How he knew this time was different than so many other times, the trips for months he would gone, even overseas, I don't know, but, Bob knew. He would sit on the window sill at 5 and wait. Then, he went to his box, and wouldn't come out. I was going to start him on IV's when, this one day, I was holding my husband's wallet, and decided for some reason to put it under his nose. There his eyes opened up, his ears stood up, and I put his wallet under Bob's pillow. And, there it stayed for the next 2 years. He fell asleep with it every night. Bob and I had a talk, and, I told him, I missed him too. Together Tim's cat, Bob & I sat. Bob turned 24 in January. I guess you could say he is my Hachi.

This movie is based on fact a real dog named Hachi, who waited on his buddy for 9 years at the train station, until, his death in 1934.

I take care of Tim's cat for him. But, I can tell the difference in him to this day. He still looks and waits and listens for his voice. I went to Aldi's today and got him a new box and he showed little interest in it.

If you haven't seen the movie, and you love animals, and don't mind crying a bit, it is a great movie.

Alright, another sleepless night and instead of watching, the acclaimed, Sleepless in Seattle, I watched another surprisingly, good movie. The People Vs. Larry Fylnt. It is an older movie, made in 1996. Woody Harrleson from Cheers is really good in it. Did it make me want to go out and buy a Hustler? Nah... lol. but, the guy certainly, had or has an interesting life. Would I watch it again? I will pass, but, it was interesting to see once. Recommended movie to see on my list.

YIKES. If you want to watch a movie where you won't move even if the house is burning down, catch, Stephen King's, Bag of Bones.

Another good movie to watch. Jumping the Broom, definitely, a chick flick with a 4 star rating from most reviews. Why do I watch these movies and then, sit and cry? Oh... I am a chick. :) A good movie to bring home for movie night.

Waiting for, The Sessions, in October.

Now, for those of you who want a change in a movie, going from the funny to the kooky, this is my all-time favorite! Patch Adams.
Now, for those of who never heard of this great man, you really missed something. He was considered in medical school to be, " excessively happy!" They tried to stop him from graduating. The school, ends up applauding him, and said, " he carries a flame that spreads like a brushfire" and, hopes, that this " excessive happiness" will spread to all others.

Summary of the movie:

Hunter Adams is a troubled man who, in 1969, voluntarily commits himself to a mental institution. Depression. Once there, he finds that helping his fellow inmates gives his life new purpose. Inspired, he leaves the asylum and vows to become a doctor to help people professionally. However, what he finds at medical school is a sickeningly callous philosophy that advocates an arm's-length attitude toward patients and does not address their emotional needs or the quality of their lives. "Patch" Adams is determined to find a better way to help them, although the consequences of his defiance of the rules and the authorities are severe.


I watch it everytime it comes on tv, you can order it here:

Home sick again, with Shingles. :( But, getting better, so, last day home to just watch movies, :) I am starting to watch what I think, might be, a pretty good movie. Louis Gossett Jr, & Teri Hatcher are playing in it. The Momentum, made in 2003.

What a wash out! It at least gave me some much needed sleep. Good thing it was on tv, and I didn't pay for it. Wait! I did pay for it, I pay for cable! I want my money back.

Next up: Confessions of a Go-Go Girl. Now, I really want my money back. :)

WOW... this movie will scare you to pieces, Since, it is based on a true experience, it ain't even funny, very sad & unfortunate. I never expected the ending.

I enjoyed this movie. Lincoln seemed to be a story teller, much of the time getting his listeners to push the boundaries and think outside the box. Lot's of zingers in there too. It's nice to have an old time movie where the words matter.

Yes, I want to see that movie, too. But, did you read where, he dumped one woman he never met, because when he did finally, meet her, she was overweight? Only to marry, one a tadbit skinnier but, a whole lot mentally unstable? lol.

We saw 42 the movie about Jackie Robinson and really enjoyed it. It was a touching, funny and inspirational movie.
I would give it a five out of five.
Fantastic!

From the director of BRUCE ALMIGHTY, THE NUTTY PROFESSOR and ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE comes something completely different.

I wound up seeing this on Netflicks. It's a little Einstein, a little about the field, and a little bit philosophy. Or maybe merging science and philosophy. Good exercise for the mind.

From DreamWorks Pictures comes “Delivery Man,”the story of affable underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), whose mundane life gets twisted in a knot when he finds out that he fathered 533 children via sperm donations he made twenty years earlier.

I enjoyed this film. There were many times during the movie that made me misty eyed. It was not slapstick, but serious adult issues, a middle aged man growing with changes and accepting responsiblities.
I laughed, I cried, I cheered.
A feel good movie about how things can be.

IIn this much-needed critique of Big Pharma (narrated by William Hurt), activists and intellectuals expose how Western pharmaceutical companies, in pursuit of higher profits, systematically block access to life-saving AIDS drugs in the global south.


Since 1996, drug companies have abused patent laws to prohibit the sale of affordable generic drugs, leading to the unnecessary deaths of millions of people in developing countries. Fire in the Blood documents the inspiring work and impressive headway activist groups have made in the struggle against these corporate practices, and interviewees like Bill Clinton, Bishop Desmond Tutu and New York Times journalist Donald G. McNeil Jr. all share insights about the need to keep to fighting.
