I also failed to see what was controversial about it, but seem to remember there was a lot of controversy around it? Or am I making that up? And the girl who is not Lea Seydoux, bless her heart, needs to close her mouth and stop playing with her hair. Irritating AF.

    And I guess I decided to make French movies the theme of the weekend, because I started Journey to Greenland. I only got halfway through, but it's sort of cute and funny and will try to finish it tomorrow. It's about two actors who visit Greenland to see one of their dads and hang out with the Inuit people.
    It was controversial because of its "raw" quality, and yes, the sex scenes... I love that movie.
    Saw the trailer for "Journey to Greenland", it looked funny.

    Interesting. I read about BITWC afterward and saw that people were complaining about the "pornography" aspect, but then the New York Times said it was clearly pantomimed sex, so I was like...OK. Kind of figured that. lol I just thought the scenes were long. I thought it was interesting that they make both of them fall into stereotypical female/male patterns - Adele wants to be around children and seems to be more involved in the domestic end of things while Emma is very career-focused, especially in the scene where Adele is washing all those dishes from the party by hand while Emma sits in bed reading a magazine. It's kind of uncomfortable. And also that it's OK for Emma to cheat and move on, but Adele is kind of lost afterward and seems to keep missing her chance at true happiness.

    I still have to finish Journey to Greenland, but it was very cute and funny so far. The guys are so well-meaning, but dorky.

    ^Yes, the movie didn't sit well with lesbians and gay-friendly people. Not that I'm not gay-friendly, but I was too engrossed in the cinematography and the acting to really care.

    ^Ah see, I didn't realize that there was some controversy with the gay community as well. I guess that makes sense though. I agree about the cinematography and I did think it was a movie that got you to thinking and I generally like that about a story.

    bernie (2011) jack black, shirley maclaine, matthew mcconaughey

    we watched this whole thing not realizing it was a true story until it was over. i thought it would be a comedy cause jack black was in it. jack black is funny even when he's not trying to be funny. i knew the relationship was gonna turn the way it did because marjorie was such a nag. he should've just went home, why keep living there? the real bernie was such a sweet soul, why did he think he couldn't just leave when she got annoying?

    i wonder if the locals talking about bernie and marjorie on camera were the actual real neighbors.

    I have not seen La La Land, but seeing bits and pieces of it this past awards season, and seeing the awards its winning compared to other stuff, I kind of figured it was going to be overhyped and overrated, so it's interesting to me that a lot of people have not been overly wowed by it.

    BFG


    Watched it with my youngun (aged 12 but with a mind of a 18 yr old) while we were eating black cherry greek yogurt out of its tub cuddled up on the couch in our own blankets.
    Super cute movie that made me tear up here and there. Held his attention all through to the end. It isn't perfectly made but it was definitely not a waste of my time.


    I think I love BFG

    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I just recently went to Savannah so I wanted to watch this again. Still holds up.

    Everybody gets to go to Savannah, but me, I swear! LOL /jellus Anyway, I had a friend who went there a few years ago when the Lady Chablis was still alive, but she didn't catch her show. I am so pissed I never got to see her myself. I love that movie and book.

    I'm sad I missed her too. She was too young! You must try to go. I loved it and hope to get back. I could see myself retiring there.

    ^ I will get there someday. Sometimes I get in the car to drive to work and I nearly just keep going, so it may just happen like that. lol I could definitely see myself retiring there and I haven't even been to that part of Georgia. But I agree, The Lady Chablis was WAY too young.

    Hidden Figures. Loved it. I cannot believe how people could ever think that segregation is ok? Even in NASA they had that? An eye-opener (for me) and a lesson in empowerment and why people should never give up fighting in what they believe in.
