Hello dear readers! Sorry for the sporadic postings in the last week. It's been hard to find the time to write out the in-depth posts I want to. First of all, I've been catching up on older movies that I had taped while I was at school (expect some short and long rants about those). Second, yesterday I had an interview at Target and I was an offered a job there! I was so excited. Check me out as the new floor person/cashier! Third, I've been trying to read the newest Sophie Kinsella book in the "Shopaholic" series entitled Shopaholic and Baby as quickly as possible because I only have a week to finish it (long story) before I have to return it to the library. So, here are a few things you can expect in the coming weeks from me:
>After my interview yesterday, I picked up my copy of Dreamgirls (the 2-disc "Showstopper Edition" of course) and quickly watched it again last night. After seeing it again, I can't believe that it took such a beating from the critics and that fucking Babel was nominated over it at the Oscars (sorry, I can't let go). I'm planning a post about my second viewing of Dreamgirls and expect a lot of "oohs and aahs" (which Effie White don't so) about the film.
>I recently caught up on Ugly Betty and I realized just how amazing the supporting women of the show are. The ones I'm going to write about are flawless in their roles and elevate the show beyond it's "primetime soap" status.
>Ronee Blakely gave one of the greatest female performances of the 1970's in Robert Altman's Nashville as ill-fated country queen Barbara Jean, but after receiving an Oscar nomination, she vanished from existence and never rose to those heights again. Read as I chronicle this performance and the reasons she should be working again.
>Thanks to everyone who read/commented on my Oscar Bitch Fight of 1939. Expect my next one (about the men of 1939) in the near future.
