All The Money In The World

All The Money In the World MP.jpg

All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. By the way, this is a true story.

If you haven’t seen it, Christopher Plummer gave a fantastic performance and much better than Kevin Spacey with makeup on. Christopher Plummer had a little makeup on to make himself older. They were some scenes with Kevin Spacey in it, but Christopher Plummer was magnificent.

In other words, Christopher Plummer was original to play J. Paul Getty, and he met the real person in London. So when he heard that Kevin Spacey was fired from the movie, because of sexual harassment. Christopher Plummer had two weeks to memorize his lines before the reshoot.

Reshooting of the movie cost of money. Since Mark Walberg was paid more than Michelle Williams and Michelle Williams is the lead in the movie. It didn’t make sense why she did not get a bigger cut of the reshooting the same scenes. Maybe she was paid more when they shot the first time and for the reshoot paid less.  Still, the lead actor should get more. Mark Walberg has the supporting role, and Mark is a highest paid actor for 2017.  If this movie makes more money than it’s budget, then they will be paid again.

So please see this movie, again and again, By the way, this movie was fantastic. This movie has two Oscar-winning actors:

timothy-hutton

Timothy Hutton

christopher-plummer

Christopher Plummer

Michelle_Williams

Michelle Williams won a Golden Globe for My Week with Marilyn (2011). Oscar-nominated actress.

The 79th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

So go and see this movie, and make all the money in the world for the actors can get paid. And by the way, he was humming a song that you might recognize.

 

 

 

How Not to Get the FLU

sneezing-snowmen

Before you let your child head out the door before going to school are they protected?  What are they wearing even though the temperature is way below 32 degrees Fahrenheit?

If they are wearing flip flops, shorts, and a sexy top that you can see thru, is that really the dress codes for the school? And you spit up coffee on them, and you tell them to change? And when they come back they have another sexy top with a different image, and you can still see through. And it is 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Freezing cold.

“I go by Celsius, is it warm?”

“No,” the parent said. “Go change it’s cold. Look outside. The neighbor’s snowman is waving at you!”

That’s how your child can get the flu not dressing appropriately for the weather we are having outside. It may be warm during the winter season, but the Flu is no joke. They already have snow days at the beginning of the new year, and child wanted to have a sick day too?

Five Ways To Fight Flu.

  1. Get a vaccine for the flu shots it can minimize the flu. Most of the viruses can enter through the nose. The air we breathe. It’s nice to wear a mask, or if they have a good hat that can cover the whole face without looking suspicious that they might rob a person.
  2. Do you know that most children don’t wash their hands before eating? Their fingers can touch their face, eyes, picking their nose, picking their ears, or playing with their belly button and licking it. It may be finger licking good, but they could be infected. Make sure they wash their hands thoroughly and before they go to sleep a good shower to keep the nice and clean and smell like roses when they get up in the morning. And give them a hand sanitizer and tell them to keep clean, if not they will end up in a hospital. It may be fun in the hospital, but the hospitals are haunted by people who died of flu on the bed. They might come home being possessed.
  3. Stop nibbling your nails. When you bite your nails, it may contain E. Coli, did I scare you when I mention. E. Coli. You don’t know where your hands been. They go everywhere on your body. Touching places that where your hands have not touch before. Wash your hands! Be Clean!
  4. Your room. When is the last time you clean your room and why is there a band-aid on the floor that you left over a month ago and it is still there. About 49% of houses rarely or never disinfect their house. It may be clean, but it is still there. Clean your room and clean the whole house. You can hire someone to clean it for you, but they never clean your children rooms, they will leave it alone. Just because there are teenagers, they don’t pick up things after themselves. Or assume the house clean itself. Put your children to work and make them clean their room and give them a reward when there are finished.  A clean room and house will make them succeed in life.
  5. Eat healthily. When is the last time you have your cholesterol check? How much weight have you gained? Is it time to bring back what you have looked like before. You were attractive back then. What happened? Cut half the sodium and sugar from your diet. Cut half the carbohydrates too. Don’t use too much butter in your food. Beef has Go vegan when possible. You don’t have to eat meat every day. Change your diet. Go to your local gym and exercise. Bring back the old you and look attractive too.

Golden Globes 2018

Seth Meyes

It was the 75th annual Golden Globes last weekend, and the celebrities were happy to the first awards of the new year of 2018. Seth Meyers, Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC, got great reviews of his hosting, he reminded me of Bob Hope when he hosted the Oscars and other awards shows.

Blanco

The actors and actress wore black for sexual harassment, and the actresses looked gorgeous in black gowns and dresses.

75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Press Room, Los Angeles, USA - 07 Jan 2018

People are still talking about it, Oprah Winfrey, gave an inspiring and inspirational speech when she received the Cecil B. DeMille award. Her speech was moving. The news media wanted her to be next president for 2020. Does she have her own network to run? She has several movies coming out this year.  What’s the qualification for being the president? Isn’t that peer pressure and fake news to stir up that she wants to be president. The news media is stirring up controversy again. Get your facts straight!

natalie-portman

When Ron Howard and Natalie Portman presented for Best Director, she said “And here are the all-male nominees,” before reading out the list.

Guillermo Del Toro

And then Guillermo del Toro won the category for “The Shape of Water.”

If they want women directors to be nominated for an Oscars or Golden Globes, why is the Golden Globe board members overlooking women directors? Is it the story of the film or the actors in characters in the film? It’s the subject matter and the story.

Kathryn Bigelow did win for best director for directing The Hurt Locker at the Oscars in 2010.  She was nominated for a Golden Globe that year, but she won the Oscar instead. So, if you don’t win the Golden Globe, the Oscars are much better.

barbra-streissand

In 1984, Barbra Streisand won a Golden Globe for directing Yentl, not the Oscar that year. I saw that movie; it was very good.

They have women directors; however, they are not nominated.

Three Billboards

The offbeat Martin McDonagh film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri pulled off a decisive win with four awards including Best Picture Drama, Actress in a Drama for Frances McDormand, Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell, and Screenplay.  And it was filmed in Sylva, NC near the mountains of Asheville, NC. It’s a small town.

Saoirse-Ronan

The Director, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, grabbed Best Picture in that category as well as an Actress prize for Saoirse Ronan (above), for Oscar.

Little Big Lies

HBO Big Little Lies Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern won for the series.

Logan Paul’s Suicide Forest

logan-paul 1

YouTube star Logan Paul apologized for posting a video showing an apparent suicide victim in Japan’s “suicide forest,” drawing condemnation for appearing to use the death for comic purposes.

The video was pulled from Paul’s official YouTube channel but was re-loaded by other users on the service.

Mount Fuji

The Suicide Forest is located in Aokigahara Jukai, dense 14 –square – mile volcanic forest at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan Yamanashi Prefecture. Jukai means “Sea of Trees,” Jukai is known as Suicide Forest, the most popular suicide destination in Japan. (At least more than 200 bodies are found every year and still counting.) It’s a beautiful forest but very dangerous. It feeds off with your emotions and fears.

hand

What Logan Paul saw was an actually a dead body which had just committed suicide earlier that day, this is real, his reaction was real. It was not staged. His crew filmed it, and it is true. People on YouTube land, please explain what is the Suicide Forest. If you don’t know what it is, do your research first.  If you are scrambling to see the video on YouTube good luck in finding it. It may be taken down anytime soon this week by YouTube legal team.

Remember suicide is not a joke, depression and mental illness is not a joke. They came to see the hauntings of the forest, but reality came in.  This happened a hundred yards from the parking lot!  His behavior is another story to question, we all know we don’t joke or laugh at a dead person. We must have respect dead.

It looks like he might suffer the consequences of his behavior and his celebrity on YouTube. He did apology his behavior for the victim and his family. Will this end his career?

The haunted forest is haunted by Yurei – unhappy, angry spirits with white clothes and long black hair. (Think about the ghost girl in The Ring) Some say their anguished howls are often heard between two and three a.m. – a time when it is too late, in more ways than one, to “talk about your troubles.”

People go to Japan for several reasons either for work, see another culture, and they know about the mountain and the suicide forest.

Oh, by the way, there was a movie made about the haunted forest called The Forest here’s my review.

Better Watch Out

Better Watch Out

If you haven’t heard about this movie, it is a Christmas movie, but with a twist. In a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion. It is a much see movie of the year. You might be home, but you’re not alone. It’s like scream and making of a serial killer, not the Netflix documentary. It involves teens. What if teens wanted to get attention and they do crazy stuff. It is a thriller, the story and dialogue are very smart. You will like this movie. Great performance from the young actors and they will be successful in the entertainment business. This movie is one to watch, and the movie went straight to DVD, and it is a great stocking stuffing too. Since Christmas is already gone, this movie will gain popularity over the next few weeks.

Why Don’t People Return Their Shopping Carts?

shopping cart

Have you ever gone to a mall, shopping center or a grocery store and there’s an empty parking space between two vehicles before you turn into that space, you see a shopping cart!

What to do? Do you wish people can return a simple shopping cart to the right place even though the place is half a mile to the store!

They have a cart receptacle in the parking place, and still, there are far away too. Or people have a child, and they don’t want to leave a child unattended for three seconds, it’s the holidays, and people are in a rush.

Shopping cart grass

They leave a shopping cart near a tree on a grassy hill or let it roll away to pond where the ducks are eating a hamburger on the road. Don’t give a duck a CPR, if it is choking on a hamburger, that would be dangerous. Just let it go. Walk away. You have not committed a crime. It will survive. One quack it will fly out of the duck’s mouth. I have seen it. I got hit by one, the other day. It wasn’t that good. Luckily, I got insurance by Aflac!

If you park next to cart receptacle, then it is good. You can unload the items in your car and put the cart in the receptacle. If you hear a baby crying, when you walk away then you forgot one item. Don’t do that.

Please return the shopping carts to the receptacle.

It’s the holidays. We are always in a rush and traffic is getting worst. Accidents may occur when getting home. If you ever get stuck in traffic, just be patience. Call ahead and tell them there’s an accident and will be home soon. The first responders are doing their best to remove what’s on the road quickly, and you will be home soon.
