   At The Cinema                           

Take This Waltz

Very quietly Seth Rogen has crept onto my list of people whose movies I'll watch just because he's in them.  Most of them, I mean all of them that I've seen,  are quirky (The Green Hornet, Zack and Miri Make a PornoSuperbad, Freaks and Geeks), but never ever slap-stick. And funny.  And Rogen's character is always cool, and that goes for Waltz.

Take This Waltz (2011) was written and directed by Sarah Polley, and is nominally a Chick Flick listed as comedy/drama— "A happily married woman falls for the artist who lives across the street.

I loved this movie (it receives just 6.5 stars on IMDB).  The dialog between Michelle (the "good wife"),  her husband (Rogen), and paramour (Luke Kirby) fairly crackles.  There are times when you'll be startled, and surprised. And,  there is, in the end something of an understated Greek tragedy quality imposed.

My guess is that everyone in the family will love it.  Little Tommy—because  Michelle Williams and Sarah Silverman are quite  naked; mom and dad—because both will see something of themselves in it.  Five Stars for me.    

Disclaimer - I no longer go to the cinema, nor pay any attention to what films are popular, or not.  So, Take This Waltz may have won 10 Academy Awards and I shall not have known it.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”
If you like Michelle Williams, and this Tommy very much does, you should see, "My Week With Marilyn." Based on a true story, Michelle portrays Marilyn Monroe filming in the uk in an oscar nominated performance.


I do not go to the theater but I do frequent Big Hollywood for ideas about what little gems are available. That is how I found Despicable Me, The Blind Side, etc.

Boss, if you haven't seen it, he's the best best friend ever in "50/50".
Ditto what Thomas said. "Marilyn" is exquisite. Michelle's also brilliant in a movie which sucks red donkey dick (Incendiary--complete dreck--don't see it, even for her).

This might be worth checking out:


Lots of documentaries.
