Movie review, Jan 9, 2017

You recall an old showbiz saying about never working with children or animals, because chances are you’ll be upstaged? Well, although the film is called Lion, it’s an untrained child actor (and not the king of the jungle) who steals the show in this movie. The actor is Sunny Pawar, a charismatic boy who will capture hearts as five-year-old Saroo Brierly, accidentally separated from his family in rural India.

I am, by nature, not a list maker so never do a Top Ten or Top anything.  As soon as I do, I say to myself, "Hey, wait-a-damn-minute, how 'bout so and so" or "why did I add that one," etc. But having said that I enjoyed your film list and decided to scribble a few observations with no particular ranking or order, other than alphabetic. I am one old fogy who is not against everything new - in fact, I think 2016 was a pretty good film year.

Movie Review, Jan 2, 2017

For the millennials whose patience with song and dance is usually limited to short-form flashy videos a modern homage to movie musicals of yesteryear is likely a tough sell – but hopefully not. Written and directed by 31-year-old Damien Chazelle La La Land brings the feature-length movie musical to life for the 21st century. You leave the auditorium exhilarated by Chazelle's inventiveness and dazzled by the performances of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as star-crossed lovers.
