Flower The Movie

Flower MP

Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross is a 17-year-old firecracker living with her single mom, Laurie, and her mom’s new boyfriend, Bob, in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. When Bob’s mentally unbalanced son, Luke, arrives from rehab to live with the family, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and her sidekicks Kala and Claudine in tow, Erica acts out by exposing a high school teacher’s dark secret. Erica wants to be a hero for her stepbrother and protect him. It’s an unusual and weird film; and also uncomfortable to watch, the movie is rated R. due to crude sexual content and language throughout, graphic nude drawings, some drug content and a brief violent image.

Zoey Deutch performance is absolutely fantastic, she is funny. You might like her. I gave it 3 ½ out of 4 stars.

The story is absolutely crazy and fantastic film. You will love this movie. “Flower” is directed by Max Winkler (Henry Winkler’s son, The Fonz, Happy Days). The script and story by Alex McAulay, and Matt Spicer.  Zoey Deutch performance is absolutely fantastic, she is funny. You might like her. I gave it 3 ½ out of 4 stars..

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.
