Your Heart On a Screen…

Movies.  I have mentioned how much they align with things I see, feel, and just relate to – and yes, they are just movies.  I am just a movie junkie – meaning I can’t stop feeling and easing into the movie theatre, and – I completely LOVE the feel of a movie – everything, even in a bad movie, there is something about being in that theatre.  Lately, I have neglected some amazing flicks that have emerged and wanted to address some of those here.

Sometimes you get lucky with films.  Sometimes you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about them and on a hunch you go.  This happened Saturday, bumping into a colleague, mentioning the film – Youth, by a fantastic director, Paolo Sorrentino.  I am clueless and I like, love, and am addicted to movies and am unsure who Paolo Sorrentino is (I have to get on that).  Yet, something push me, so I took the bite. 

The cinematic beauty of the photography, the scenery, the music, – you just HAVE TO see it to believe it  I am not saying there was not some strangeness to the film, that there definitely was.  Yet, the strangeness in The Grand Budapest Hotel has plenty and it was pretty great.  There is much adult humor and coming of age jokes, and yet the scenes have this floating sense that add to a beauty you can really only view.  The commentary on life as a whole here – left me speechless combined with the filming but I walked away with so much I did not know – David Lang doing an amazing job on the soundtrack that I – I have to have that soundtrack.  A very strange pop star in the name of Paloma Faith (She SO reminds me of Amy Winehouse – I WANT HER ALBUMS!!!!!) .  A totally mesmerizing Sumi Jo singing Simple Song #3 –
I feel complete
I lose all control
I lose all control
I respond

I feel chills
I wake
I know on those lonely nights
I know on those lonely nights

I know everything
I lose all control
I get chills
I know on those lonely nights

I die
I hear all that is left to be heard
I wish you would never stop
I’ve got a feeling

I live near
I live for you now
I leave no sense behind
I feel complete

I’ve got a feeling
I wish you moving like rain
I’ll be there
I’ll be there
I lose all control

When you whisper my name
When you whisper my name
When you whisper my name, whisper my name
When you whisper my name

Ooooooooh (x3)

Whisper …

When you …
Whisper …

When you …

and if that does not put chills up and down your back – than WATCH THIS FILM.  Amazing is ways that can’t be put into words, but it will stick in my memory always.

In the timing, I lost a dear dear fried this past weekend with his valiant fight against so many fights physically, and I have to say, his spirit his enthusiasm, his life was stamped all through his movie – so for not just the above reasons – but his life alone, I think I will never forget the beauty that came out of this film.

Captain American Civil War I DID not go see Batman versus Superman because I heard such dreadful things about it.   However, I would have regretted NOT seeing this Marvel Comics film.  The plot – was detailed and I have to say as perfect as I could see it unfold on the screen – my heart was thumping constantly all throughout the film and this WAS SO WORTH THE VIEW and THEN some.  Was it the Captain American Cup I received with the free Hershey bar before I went in? (I had no idea that was part of the whole package) 🙂  Yet no, you will not be disappointed in what this brings to the theatre, which is a WHOLE heck of alot.  WHOLE.  HECK of ALOT.  A guarantee.

Allegiant I love this series.  I love Shailene Woodley, despite the fact that she might be shallow, but I can’t help it.  The action continue and truly  did not seem to wear out, fade out, or dissipate.  I need to keep up with reading the series, but I want the films to keep coming, not disappointed in the least.

Room – I cannot say this film did not freak me out to the extreme, the acting, superb.  The plausibility,  very real.  You learn what to be thankful real fast in this film, and that thankfulness reaches out to so many aspects of your life, and those you love. When I think of this film, I think simply, bittersweet.  It is amazing to me a boy so young can pull this quality off so well – look forward to see what will be next for him.

More to come!
