"A Quiet Passion! I did not expect such piercing wit and laugh-out-loud humor from Terence Davies. "- Jonathan

"The Zookeeper's Wife, Jessica Chastain looking glamorous while resisting the nazis, not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon" -Choog

April. It's a Wrap

So.... we stayed very dry this month. So sorry about the annual April Showers event which just didn't happen. April's other traditional event (New Oscar Predictions) did finally happen and the conversation continues. But more than any month in recent memory this one felt like it dragged me behind it mercilessly while it sped through a series of stressful events. Offline. We'll see how May treats us. But it'll have to be better.

Here are ten highlights of this scattershot month in case you missed them...

Hello Gorgeous Barbra Streisand's filmography. It's like butta.
The Evil Queen's Library Someone give her a library card.
April Showers: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo well at least I started the series off well. My stamina failed me. 
Mirror Mirror what an odd mix of fairy tale, visual indulgence, and hit and miss performances.
Take Three: Anne Heche Anne Heche Craig's series hits one of my favorite actresses. She's probably #1 on my list of "does not even remotely have the career she should have. 
"The Nineties" a nostalgia addled moment
Yes No Maybe So Magic Mike not what many people were expecting as a trailer for a male stripper movie
Time Out's 100 Best Horror Movies how many have you seen?

Coming in May: Oh dear. I best not promise anything at this rate. But we'll try to follow Cannes hype, assemble with The Avengers (2012), and screen Pariah (2011), The Exorcist (1973), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Dark Shadows (2012), and About a Boy (2002) for its 10th anniversary.

Also: Joan Crawford, Rita Hayworth, Michelle Pfeiffer and whichever other actresses we jones for as summer movie season kicks off.

I held up my end of the bargain. Tomorrow free to say whatever I want about Meryl.

Sally Hawkins Eyes Woody Allen's Next Pic
The British actress starred in Allen's Cassandra's Dream and is in talks to play one of the female leads in his next movie, shooting in San Francisco and New York. Variety reports Allen is considering Cate Blanchett for the other lead.

Also in May... maybe finish the film bitch awards! :) At any rate, we know how it is to get caught up with things we don't want to get caught up with. We are just happy you post very consistently (in terms of quantity and quality) :)

Ooh, great idea kin. At one point I felt like the only person who's still not over 2011.

Also, the April Showers post reminds me that Fincher's Dragon Tattoo will always be better than the Oplev one in that the former shows Lisbeth's stunted healing while the latter just shows that rape hurts and must be avenged.

/3rtful -- cate blanchett & sally hawkins as the stars. strange. But it is older than Woody's been skewing lately so i wonder if it's a drama again ?

kin -- i shall try. I really hope the off-writing work settles soon to give me a chance to write more.
