Avatar: Movie of the Decade?

Avatar will be released in December. I JUST CAN't WAIT ANYMORE! The second trailer made me believe this would be a masterpiece. It's the movie event of the decade easily, name any other movie that has been as hyped in this whole decade! The Lord of the Rings is the only close to this!

The New Pop Sensation

This is the new sensation from Sweden!

A Piece of Art

This is maybe the most beautiful film of all time!

Truth or Dare?

I Pick Truth!

Yesterday I watched Madonna's 1991 documentary "Truth or Dare" or "In Bed With Madonna" as it's called in Europe.

I was completely hooked on it. It's a fascinating documentary about the one AND only Madonna.

Isn't it weird that my top three favourite movies of 1991 was one animated movie, one horror and one documentary. It's pretty easy to guess the movies i'm talking about :)

Destroyer #3

Yes you've seen right "Last Tango in Paris" is a destroyer, though only for Maria Schneider.
The Full frontal pictures of her got too much for the public at the time so her movie career was out of the window.

Destroyer #2

You had it coming!

Dunaway gave a great performance. She was voted runner up by both the NSFC and NYFCC, lost to "Stevie" which was released in 1978. Then she WON the RAZZIE! What the Hell! And after that her movie roles and movies and just gone down. It has happened occasionally that she gives great performances, and then it's often on television.

Dunaway MAKE A COMEBACK!!!!!!!!!

Destroyer #1

This movie destroyed Liv Ullmanns international stardom. She did some few leading roles in english movies afterwards, two of them she got GG nominations for (40 Carats and The Rose Garden). Happily for us, she delivered great performances in swedish and norweigan.

The Music of a Summer Night

Who's the best the superstar Taylor? or the divine Dahlbeck?

I personally think Dahlbeck was the best.

RIP: Amelia's Oscar Chances (I HOPE!!!)

I Woke up tired today, went to "work", came home and went to Rottentomatoes.com. I've got the day happiest new "Amelia" is flopping... almost. It has right now 17% based on 5 reviews. I know it will probably change to 30%-50%, but still. It's rulling out Swanks Oscar chances unless she makes a Blanchett.

But I still want to see the film all because of Ewan McGregor.

Best Actress 1972

1972 was not a great year for films, even if two real classics was released (Cabaret, The Godfather) and one swedish masterpiece was released in NY (Cries and Whispers). Neither was it a rich year for actresses.

The Five oscar-nominees was the great Minnelli, the astonishing Ullmann, the natural Tyson, the theatrical Smith and the singing Ross. Only three of these five holds any Oscar worthy standard (that's the first three mentioned). It wasn't any big surprise when Minnelli won the Oscar. Why?

Ullmann - Lost Horizon opened
Ross and Tyson - Splitting the black votes
Smith - Had no chance from the beginning.

It was no competition for Minnelli to win this.

There wasn't any big omissions this year only some small. Where was Streisand for her superb comic turn in "What's Up Doc?", or where was Woodward (shamefull i haven't seen her movie :( )

Then there also was Juliet Mills in "Avanti!", Burnett in "Pete 'n' Tillie", Hawn in "Butterflies are Free", Tuesday Weld in "Play It as it Lays" and Trish van Devere "One Is A Lonely Number".

Then in the rest of the world there were three other movies released with great performances by actresses. "Cries and Whispers" and "The New Land" would open the next year in US and there was also "The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant".

Top 3 TV Shows right now

A very short list.

3. The Simpsons
I Know the quality of the jokes have turned down dramatically, but it still gives a smile on my face.

2. 30 Rock
A Funny comedy with great performances from Baldwin, Fey and Krakowski

1. Mad Men
This is simply one of the Best TV-Series in years.

Casting My Fair Lady

Still no new words about the movie. The three contenders for Eliza Doolittle is my favourite Keira Knightley, the limited actress Anne Hathaway* and the underrated Scarlett Johansson**
I really want Knightley to get this role, she would be amazing as Doolittle. Hathaway could very possibly be charming in this but nothing more. Johansson would be greatly miscast.

For the role of Henry Higgins I would want Daniel Day-Lewis. And why not Julie Andrews as Mrs. Higgins, that's smelling Oscar Nomination

*I Just don't think she's good enough to become both the next Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep.
** We must think back to before 2006. and after 2006 she stills have gived us good performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and The Other Boleyn Girl, but she was a little stiff in The Prestige.
