after all, it Is a small world


Well, I don't have much to say, so here are some more pictures of Disneyworld. Stop me if you've seen it all before!
















But I bet you haven't seen this particular pole, have you? Amazing, isn't it? It had a really great view of the parade. I was jealous.

here we go again

Okay, even with no feedback, I'll give it a try. I must say though, I'm surprised to have no encouragement out there. I realize I sometimes go all over the place in this blog - from horror movies to Japanese weddings - but that's your fault too! I need feedback to hear what you want to hear! Yes, it's my blog, but you're the readers. Come on! :)

Meantime, I'll state that I have NO interest in the Oscars this year. First time. I saw No Country and posted about it, and that's gonna be my last film I see based on critics. I like Fun films. Not "great" films. Sounds strange, I know. That certainly doesn't mean I dislike dramas. In fact, the best film I've seen this year made me cry. Yes, I'll admit it. The Bucket List was GREAT. And critics didn't like it. So what? They hated Mindhunters, which I thought was a Wonderful suspense film (along the lines of April Fool's Day). I thought there was real chemistry in Bucket, and the sad ending was beautiful. Beautiful friendship film, one of the best I've ever seen.

Worst film I've seen this year is hands down Cloverfield. Like many, I couldn't get past the shaky camera, and I had NO emotional attachment to the characters or what was going on. And it got great reviews. To me that's like loving make-up without a face to put it on. The WAY it was done has become the issue, not the content. For me and those who praise it. Hopefully the fad will be Pet Rock in length.

it's been a while


I know, it's been a long time. Well, to be honest, it's hard to get up the gumption to keep updating this page when I have NO idea if there are readers out there. You know, that's why I gave up creative writing (plays, screenplays, etc.) years ago - because I guess I have this fear of writing for the drawer. I.E. writing for no reason. So if you read this blog, post some comments! That'll get it started again!
