The decade that gave us “Survivor”, “Who wants to Marry a Millionaire” and “American Idol,” also gave us groundbreaking, original, and wonderful television that we deeply needed and still appreciate.
Given that the 90s gave us great musical theatre like “Rent” and “The Lion King,” the new decade had a lot to live up to.
The thing about the Grammys is that they are sort of like your weird aunt that shows up for the holidays. All you know is that she is random and doesn’t seem to make much sense.
I plan on taking on the Tonys, Emmys and Grammys in the next few weeks, but I thought I would start by examining Oscar’s chosen few from the past decade.
If there was a time capsule that could represent 2009 as a whole, it would have to include “Up in the Air.”
In the end, it’s still that hollow musical that came out in the early eighties. It’s fun, it’s enjoyable and it’s beautiful. But at best, it’s more like a 6 or a 6.5.
This was a movie that many have waited years for. This is also a movie that many wanted to be brilliant despite the fact that the trailer disappointed.
I thought I’d take a moment before the holidays to access where we stand in the race and which films deserve your immediate viewing.
The Grammy is the highest level of achievement that a recording artist can get. The Grammys reward close to one hundred different categories ranging from pop to polka, and everything in between.
Let me go on record and say that everything you have heard about the movie is true. It is brilliant!
“An Education” is a nice, little (just about an hour and a half) movie with a lot to say. This is a pre-Beatles time where everyone is still buttoned up and stubborn.
I always acknowledge that I look at Black Friday as survival of the fittest. I think it requires both great patience and determination.
I thought I would take a few lines to celebrate five pieces of entertainment (not film, yet…DAMNIT) that we should be thankful for.
A sampling of films that should be highly praised and may even get the chance to dance around with that little golden guy.
