“It is a truth universally acknowledged…

that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” 200 years ago on January 28, Pride & Prejudice was published in England.  200 years ago! I just finished reading Jane Austen’s final novel, “Persuasion.”  Austen doesn’t disappoint, but I”m afraid it can’t compare to “Pride & Prejudice.”… Continue reading “It is a truth universally acknowledged…

Award Shows Reflections

Sunday night the Golden Globes were awarded, and before that, on Thursday the nominees for the Oscars came out.  Ah.  Good stuff.  So, of course, award shows cause me to reflect and make lists – of what I’ve seen, what I want to see, and what is not worth my time!  Isn’t the same true… Continue reading Award Shows Reflections

Final Film Footnotes from 2012

In the Theatre:  Lincoln (with Cindy at Wehrenberg) – Wow, Daniel Day Lewis was amazing.  He WAS Lincoln.  It was an interesting story about the politics around the passage of the 13th Amendment.  Definitely worth seeing – and probably seeing again when it comes out on DVD! Les Miserables (with Marissa, Cindy and her friend Andrea at… Continue reading Final Film Footnotes from 2012
