Movies and more movies…

Hi all, this past weekend we saw the movie Bolt…it was very charming…we liked it…

it seems in the past few months we have seen a ton of new movies…I love movies in general, I used to work in Movie Theaters, run them and such for over 15 years, so it was a big part of my life at one time & award seasons were a huge party time for the folks in my industry…one particular party I always liked to go to was Show West in Los Vegas where the Distributors (the people who make the movies) wine and dine the exhibitors (the people who show the movies, movie theater owners and such)…I got to go several times, it was really fun…each studio would put on a dinner or a party of some sort, we would show up in this large rooms with big round tables all set up for dinner, on each chair there was a bag full of goodies from the studio…only a select few got to go, like 5000 of all the people who work in the movie industry…I had so much fun at these events…

like peacocks the studio would not only show us all kinds of short bits of their movies coming in the next year, they would also parade in front of us their brightest stars, so at one dinner I could be sitting 20 feet away from Whoopei Goldberg at another 20 feet away from Tom Cruise…course the stars would change as they got more famous…there was no need for them to show up every year, which was good since it left room for new up and coming stars to come…

a little bit of my life in the movies…there are so many stories, so many stars, so many promotions, I was the queen of promotions, I had a great time promoting them, oh the Oscar parties, at home and at the theaters we held…by the end of my movie theater career I would go from place to place and open large theaters, staff them, train the folks, set them up and move on…loads of fun and never any time to myself…

my favorite movies come in all kinds genres, this past few weeks, I have seen the following:
Revolutionary Road—–Awesome, The Reader—–Sad but awesome, Doubt—-Awesome, Curious Case of Benjamin Button—-Awesome & eye opening, Wall-e—-Great, Vicki Christina Barcelona—-Awesome funny, acquired taste, I’ve loved you for so long—-Awesome, Milk—-Awesome & sad, Slum Dog Millionaire—-Awesome, Yes Man—-Funny & good, The day the earth stood still—-not so well done, Tropic Thunder—-Awesome & so funny…this is the first time in a long time that I have loved so many movies in a row.

have you seen any good movies or bad ones lately…? last night I saw the BAFTA awards here in England, and last month the Golden Globes, Oscars are next…do you have your favorites picked out…? Do you Care? let me know…

Thanks for stopping by, hope your weekend was good too…
