‘A STAR IS BORN’

FINALLY

I went to the movies yesterday and saw this film.

I was an ardent fan of the 1976 version in which Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson played the lead roles.

I wasn’t disappointed with this current version.

Both Bradley and Lady Gaga performed impeccably. 

Fully recommend it!

This song is simply incredible. The story around it is worth watching the film.

‘FEEL THE LIGHT’

My oldest grand-daughter, Angelika, started taking vocal lessons recently.

She chose this song to practice with her teacher.

We needed to print the lyrics for her.

This is way I found this beautifully amazing video by Jennifer López.

I liked the movie, loved this song.

Just found the video today.

Enjoy!

WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS

I went to the movies yesterday to see “Kubo“.

I was amazingly pleased by the whole production.

For those who like action, adventure, animated stories, this is a good one.

As the movie ended, I was more than pleased to hear the first notes of a familiar song which I couldn’t place initially.

What a pleasant surprise!

It was a cover of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps‘, very well done.

But, who was singing this version?

Out comes the cell phone and the Schazam app.

Regina Spektor and Dario Marianelli.

I had to look it up and here’s what I found.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song written by George Harrison, first recorded by the Beatles in 1968 for their eponymous double album (also known as “the White Album“).

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS

On this rainy day, Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, got out of school a noon.

We’ve been meaning to do something together.

This movie was on our “must see” list.

Off we went and we had a great time.

We both loved the movie.

Here’s some info and the trailer for it.

Enjoy!

Kubo and the Two Strings is a 2016 American 3D stop-motion fantasy action adventure film, directed by Travis Knight, written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, and produced by Laika.

The film features the voices of Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara and George Takei.

~PLOT~

In ancient Japan, Kubo (Art Parkinson) is a young boy who lives with his ill mother, Sariatu (Charlize Theron), in a cave on top of a mountain. Every day he goes out to a nearby village to tell stories by manipulating pieces of paper that form into origami that moves under music played from Kubo’s shamisen.

He tells tales of great warriors seeking revenge while battling monsters, primarily of a samurai warrior named Hanzo, who is Kubo’s missing father. Every day he quickly returns to his mother when the town bell chimes signaling sunset. She instructs him not to stay outside after dark or her Sisters (his aunts) and his grandfather, the Moon King, will come to take his remaining eye, as they took the other when he was a baby.

One day, Kubo learns of a ceremony where family members communicate with deceased loved ones (Obon). He arrives at a cemetery and tries to speak to his father, but he leaves in anger when his father does not respond to him. Because Kubo has stayed outside after sundown, his mother’s Sisters (Rooney Mara) find him and try to take his eye. After they destroy the village, his mother arrives to fend off her Sisters.

His mother sends Kubo away by touching a beetle crest on his robe which gives him wings, forcing him to fly away from his mother. She tells him to find his father’s armor in order to protect Kubo from his grandfather’s evil spirits. He takes a piece of her hair before she is seemingly killed by her Sisters.

GoldSwirlHortAngGoldSwirl

Upon his return to the village, he is able to reclaim the helmet and puts it on. He is greeted by Raiden (Ralph Fiennes), the ghost that appeared to Kubo in his dream. Raiden is revealed to be his grandfather, the Moon King. The Moon King, who needs Kubo’s eye to rid Kubo of all his powers and memories, transforms into the “Moon Beast” and fights Kubo. Kubo is defeated and tossed into the cemetery where the Moon King corners him as well as the surviving villagers.

Kubo retaliates by taking off the armor and repairs his shamisen using the hair of his mother, his father’s bowstring, and one of his own hairs. He uses its magic to recruit the spirits of the villagers’ deceased, showing that memories are the strongest form of magic and can never be destroyed. The Moon King is defeated and becomes mortal, and in his human form has no recollection of who or what he was.

The villagers make him believe that he is a good man. After the villagers set their lanterns near a lake, Kubo is able to speak with his parents and make peace with them, saying that he is happy he was able to go on a journey with them.

They then appear beside him in the form of spirits.

REVENGE OF THE FIFTH

Star Wars Day was officially first celebrated on May 4, 2011.

In fact, the holiday became so popular that starting in 2012, the next day was jokingly called “Revenge of the Fifth”, a pun on the Star Wars movie title Revenge of the Sith. It might also have something to do with that day being Cinco de Mayo, but to this day fans still like to let their “evil sides” come out the day after Star Wars Day.

When is Star Wars Day?

Star Wars Day is on May 4th every year, playing on the catchphrase “May the Force Be With You.”

The very next day, (as if one day isn’t enough), May 5th, Star Wars fans celebrate Revenge of the Fifth, reserved for those who celebrate the dark side. It’s a play on the title of the third Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith.

Is It Revenge Of The Fifth or 6th?

People often get confused because the day after May 4th is not only Cinco de Mayo but “Revenge of the Fifth“.

Sometimes it is celebrated on May the 6th because people skip over the 5th for Cinco de Mayo.

Movie Time …. “Race: Jesse Owens and the 1936 Olympics”!!

RACE

Incredible true story of Gold Champion Jessie Owens

I went to the movies yesterday. I had seen the previews of this film and I knew it was a “must-see” for me.

I have seen some reviews. It seems that some critics feel that the film didn’t “perform” as expected. I don’t really follow what critics say. Most of the time, in my humble opinion .. like the weathermen … they are wrong.

I enjoyed the movie thoroughly.

For history buffs, for sports fans and for any interested in periods of time where ignorance, bigotry, racism and prejudice were the “law of the land”

(Wait … isn’t it still?)

~JESSE OWENS~

James Cleveland “Jesse” Owens (September 12, 1913 – March 31, 1980) was an American track and field athlete and four-time Olympic gold medalist.

Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as “perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history”.

His achievement of setting three world records and tying another in less than an hour at the 1935 Big Ten track meet in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has been called “the greatest 45 minutes ever in sport” and has never been equaled.

At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin,Germany, Owens won international fame with four gold medals: 100 meters, 200 meters, long jump, and 4 × 100 meter relay.

He was the most successful athlete at the games and as such has been credited with “single-handedly crushing Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy.”

Rac13

In 1936, Owens arrived in Berlin to compete for the United States at the Summer Olympics. According to fellow American athlete James LuValle, who won bronze in the 400 meters, Owens arrived in Berlin to a throng of fans, many of them young girls, yelling “Wo ist Jesse? Wo ist Jesse?” Many of them had come with scissors and had begun snipping at Owens’ clothing, forcing him to retreat back onto the train.

After that, when Owens left the athletes’ village, he usually had to go with some soldiers to protect him.

In contrast, Adolf Hitler was using the games to show the world a resurgent Nazi Germany.He and other government officials had high hopes that German athletes would dominate the games with victories. Meanwhile, Nazi propaganda promoted concepts of “Aryan racial superiority” and depicted others, including those of African descent, as inferior. Owens countered this by winning four gold medals.

…. and the rest is history ….

THE CHOICE

I had a full house of kids yesterday. They were a rowdy bunch. I needed a brake. I left them with the other grandma and pursued a favorite past time.

I went to the movies!

It was a choice between “Hail Ceasar” and “The Choice”.

I asked the ticket girl which one she thought was best. She said she hadn’t seen either but recommended “Caesar” because she didn’t like romances.

I made my decision and went for the “tearjerker”.

It’s a story about love, how it develops and how it grows and how easily it can be lost.

In a blink of an eye, life totally changes.

Yet, you hope and hope.

It’s a fun watch.

I’m glad I did!!

And what blossoms is an emotional and inspiring love story. It is a story about overcoming barriers to be with your loved ones. It is about pure and intense romantic love, trust, strength, and the choices we can make to show them.

Travis visits Gabby in the hospital after she is put in a comatose state after getting into an accident. Gabby has not woken up and the doctors say she probably never will. The choice Travis has to make is whether to take Gabby off life support or to send her to long term care where she may never wake up. He decides to take his chances and move her to long term care. Three months later, Gabby wakes up from her coma and moves back into their house.
