A Dahlia from our garden. It's just so pretty and it reminds me of my Oma who loved this flower. So, it's time to let ya know what I watched in September and I will try to make it short.....hahahaaaa.
1. THE AFRICAN QUEEN-1951
Katherine Hepburn plays a spinster who travels with, "I need a bath", Canadian Humphrey Bogart up the African River during WW1 and decide to do a little destruction for the war effort not thinking they will fall in love. Great movie and the behind the scenes are just as juicy. Poor Kate needed a vomit bucket off camera but Bogie and the director John Huston were fine. The reason? They only drank booze.
2. THE MAIDEN HEIST-2009
Talk about a fun movie where 3 security guards that work in an art museum find out their favourite art pieces have been sold to make the art museum look towards newer art. The decision? Steal their favourite art piece. It's funny and sweet with William H Macy stealing the scenes as a guard who must strip baked in front of his favourite art piece.
3. THE HUMBLING- 2010
Al Pacino plays a slightly nutty actor who has lost his way. Al playing someone off kilter? Hmm big surprise. I wanted to like it more than I really did.
4. HOW TO MURDER YOUR WIFE-1964
I'm surprised all the kids who hate the song, "Baby, it's cold outside" gave nit demanded this film be annihilated. Sorry, kids but get a life. I love this movie which is about how a free wheeling rich man, free of any burdensome wife, gets hitched to a luscious Italian gal who lusts after him and he succumbs. Awwww, poor slob. His valet, the great Terry-Thomas, is aghast that his boss married and doesn't kick her out. It's fun, silly and shows how, in the end, we hold the cards.
5. THE NEWS OF THE WORLD-2020
An excellent quiet western starring Tom Hanks as a man who brings the news to all the different towns out there only to come across a young girl who only wants to go vack to the Indian tribe that raised her. I love this film.
6. BLOWING WILD- 1953
Gary Cooper is hired by his friend, Anthony Quinn, to run his oil fields while Gary tries to rin away from the nutty, but lustful wife of Quinn, played by Barbara Stanwyck. Ruth Roman is the nice gal who falls for Cooper. It's a fun flick that is predictable but still fun.
1. RIPPER STREET-2012-2016
Excellent British TV show starring Matthew McFadyen as inspector Reid who is haunted by the recent Jack the Ripper murders but still must deal with the squalor of Whitechapel. He has his trusted right hand man, Bennet Drake and they come across a drunken, but brilliant American doctor Homer Jackson. Hubby and I binged-watched this series and loved every moment. See it if you can.
2. QUANTUM LEAP-2022
The jury is still out on this remake but I'm enjoying it. This QUANTUM LEAP is taken out of moth balls and a new man is now jumping around into other peoples' lives. My heart does belong to Scott Bacula.
3. DANCING WITH THE STARS- 2005-Present
My guilty pleasure that I started watching and my mom watched it too. We would talk and bitch about the dances and the music they picked. It's gone through some crap...like firing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews for no reason...typical of today and then bringing in Tyra Banks...ughh. now, Disney grabbed it and have it on their channel. I thought that would be it but my ex can grab it and download it for me to watch. I enjoy it and feel my mom is beside me bitching about the music.
What have you watched?
