Spring is Here!

Who else feels like dancing ecstatically?

Angela Lansbury's rave reviews in Blithe Spirit, which opened in London this week, makes me want to revisit the 1945 Rex Harrison version. (Psst....Lady Edith Grantham...we know where your Mr. Gregson has been hiding!)

And, excited to see Kate Burton as Arkadina in The Seagull this weekend. She is so deliciously good in Scandal.

Don't feel like dancing, no. I'm living in Quebec and it's still freezing and snowing in here, so I'm more like: Spring, where are you?

Spring is here! Spring is here!
Life is skittles and life is beer!
I think the loveliest time of the year
is the Spring! I do!
Don't you?
Of course you do!

Yes yes YES, let's dance...and joyously undulate our supple hips in homage to the fertility gods who may bestow upon us the fruits of the loom.

And also, let's SING! As Jane Lynch from the Apatow film would sing. I apologize, I don't know the original lyrics to the Guatemalan love song that accompanied her loss of virginity, but there is the English translation:

"Whenever they clean my room, I can't find anything. Where are you going with such haste? To a soccer game.''

Besides Tom Lehrer, camp has been on my mind a lot. Specifically, whether CGI can ever be fun. The more I see of Maleficent, the more I sour to it. Does all CGI have to look like a Peter Jackson movie (muted colors) or a Tim Burton movie (mostly blue)? Is there no place for bright colors or fanciful designs?

While I appreciate the idea of dancing spontaneously and freely, it more often resembles a shotgun wedding in the hills after too much of Grandma's hooch (which she slipped into the punch unseen). And while I live in a area where family trees can often be drawn in a straight line, these are not always the people you want to watch dance, socialize or......well.......(heaven forbid someone pulls out a banjo). So, I'll just watch, tape video and count the money I'll collect to destroy those tapes later.

However, I could probably make a bundle if someone did pull out a banjo, the music took hold and I caught that on tape. I know someone who reads this blog must have contacts in the "art" film industry. Wanna go halfsies?

Other than that, I'm waiting impatiently for Grand Budapest Hotel to arrive.

Right now I'm thinking about how my disinterest in Diverent stands in stark contrast to my interest in Theo James' face. Am I the only one who thinks he resembles a young Warren Beatty?

March 20, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterthefilmjunkie

What thefilmjunkie said...Theo is seriously handsome. I even watched that lame CBS series Golden Boy just to feast my eyes on that guy. LOL

Yeah, I can see the Beatty resemblance. Now I'm flashing back to the shower scene in Splendor in the Grass. LOL

Theo James--another career Lady Mary has launched or at least boosted.
