CALAMITY JANE - 5 Stars

I wasn't sure how this musical would turn out since it was written for Warner Brothers and it starred Doris Day.  I forgot that before Doris Day starred with Cary Grant she was a famous chanteuse .  That girl can sing, and she is funny

William Powell and Myrna Loy have always been one of my favorite Hollywood partnerships since I first saw them in THE THIN MAN and in the THE GREAT  ZIEGFIELD   They don't disappoint.

CALL ME MADAME - 1 Star

Some musicals hold up over time and some crash and burn.  CALL ME MADAME  by Irving Berlin is one of the latter, even Donald O'Conner could not save this dog.Read more...Collapse )

CRY BABY - 0 Stars

I remembered CRY BABY as having great music and a really crappy story where every one chewed the scenery and the audience was supposed to find it funny.

Let me start by saying as a small child the ALICE books scared the Bejeesus out of me.  Nor am I in anyway a fan of Tim Burton,  I liked only three movies he had done, two BATMAN & SLEEPY HOLLOW, now I get to add ALICE IN WONDERLAND to the list.

My Grandma's Stuffy Nose Remedy

1  8 cup glass or ceramic teapot
Add:
1/4th cup dark honey, the darker the better like wild, thyme or walnut.  Orange blossom will do in a pinch
Half a regular lemon or a whole Meyer Lemon slice
2 to 3 ounces whiskey or bourbon - I like southern comfort
2 Lipton or 1 Barry's teabag
Fill to top with boiling water

Always makes me feel better when I am sick or maybe I just don't care by the time I'm finished LoL

Giggle I was prepared to hate this movie but it won me over.  It's a modern version of The Judy and Mickey musicals of the 30s and 40s and it has that same innocent sweetness.
