    To Kill a Mockingbird:

    I Just Watched...

    I guess I should clarify that I was well aware of some of the themes in this film before I actually watched it. I could find myself sympathizing with the protagonist, Elisa, who is mute and overlooked a lot of the time. She connected with the fish-man and found a new friend-with-benefits of sorts (I'm gagging just typing that). I have no idea where along the road Guillermo Del Toro decided to make this film. To each his own, I guess. The only thing I liked about this, was the setting, and the overall aesthetic of it. The scenes at the lab were pleasing to the eye (or, at least, my eye); I've been into greens/aqua colors lately, so that's probably why some of this was so appealing to me. Also, Sally Hawkins was great as Elisa. Despite the strange material, and her character's strange choices (and none of her friends even batting an eye!), she was quite good.

    HANNIE CAULDER (1971) *Score: 4/10* *Warning: This movie contains some potentially triggering scenes dealing with assault, so if you are sensitive to that, you might want to stay away.* Starring: Raquel Welch, Robert Culp, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Elam, Strother Martin, Christopher Lee, Diana Dors, Stephen Boyd (for approx .2 seconds). Hannie Caulder finds herself widowed and assaulted all within the span of approximately 30 minutes to an hour, and she enlists the help of Tom Price, a bounty hunter, to teach her to shoot a gun so she can exact her revenge on the 3 brothers who committed these crimes upon her and her husband. The assault scene was actually more upsetting than I thought it was going to be. The camera-angles made so much more of an impact, I thought. This managed to keep my attention for its entirety, but it isn't what I would call a "great" film. I had never seen anything of Welch's before this, and I was pleasantly surprised with her. She was very likable and mostly believable... I'm not going to add this to my personal collection, but I was entertained. I also initially thought I recognized Christopher Lee in this, but then brushed it aside, assuming I was wrong... I was not wrong. I need to have more confidence in my ability to recognize names/faces. I thought Robert Culp looked like Josh Groban when he starred in "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812" on Broadway. See for yourselves:

    MISSING LINK (2019) *Score: 5/10* Starring: Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Thompson. A Laika Studios film about an explorer, Lionel Frost (Jackman), whose goal is to search for the elusive Sasquatch and bring back proof of its existence to London, so he can join a local prestigious gentlemen's club. I try to make an effort to support some of the "little guys" in theaters, since Disney doesn't necessarily need my money to survive. I typically really enjoy Laika's films, but this one kind of fell short, in my opinion. I much prefer "Coraline" and "ParaNorman..." The animation style and overall tone of the film were definitely on point, though, and fit the theme of the rest of Laika's repertoire. I liked this one, but I won't be buying it for my personal collection.
  7. Is his reaction a bit extreme? Yes. But obviously Star Wars means a lot to him. I always think it is great when someone has a hobby or an interest that truly brings them joy. It helps you get through the tedious necessary tasks you have to get through in life. That being said, I cry whenever I watch the Disney fireworks shows (both in CA and FL). Disney means a lot to me for reasons I won't go into right now; but it's something that means a lot to me. I will admit that I have watched the new teaser trailer about 6 times, and have actually shed tears every time Carrie Fisher makes a screen appearance.

    What Would Be Your Fan Dedication Movie?

    I would pick "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) and dedicate it to my granddad. It is one of his favorite old movies of all time, and he and I always have a lot of fun watching "old" movies together whenever I visit him and my nonna (Italian for grandmother). A couple years ago, he gave me his own personal copy of the "It's a Wonderful Life" companion book. It has the complete script of the film, as well as some photos and behind the scenes information. It is something I will treasure always. Honestly, Jimmy Stewart will always remind me of my grandfather, because he is one of his favorite actors.

    Actress Georgia Engel (1948-2019)

    So sad to hear this news. I absolutely adored her on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show." I recall her having a guest starring role on "The Office" towards the end of the series. Rest in peace, Georgia. We love you. 💗
