Happy Birthday Katherine


A Jewish Embarrassment

i needed to take a moment away from awards, nominations and oscars and get real. this idiot, along with previously mentioned joe lieberman, is an embarrassment to jewish people worldwide. The only jews i know who do not regard healthcare as a fundamental right for all!

Happy Birthday Chita

'Nine':B+

Screw the critics. I thought 'NINE' could not be made. The fact is the Broadway show was not made.
Rob Marshall used the musical as a starting point to make something more cinematic. He got it!
Truth be told Ii enjoyed it more than 'Chicago' that was poorly cast.

'NINE' has near perfect casting.
Day-Louis, Dench, Fergie,Cruz and surprisingly, for me, Nicole all shined.
The exception being Kate Hudson. What the hell was she doing in this ensemble?

The true gift was the performance of Marion Cotillard as Luisa. Needing to be sad or angry or sweet she had it all and gave it her all. She's extraordinary she is as she goes from jubilation to desperation without missing a beat. I'm falling in love with this woman...this damn good actress. It's not by accident that Marshall had Marion wear a little black dress, Audrey Hepburn style, and then basically recreated Audrey's 'Roman Holiday' screen test for Marion's character. Inspired!
