A Movie Post

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks so much for your kind comments on yesterdays Post.   Also, thank you for all the great ideas for the Hallowe'en RR - I just hit a wall thinking about that piece - I would guess that's why it has be languishing in the "completed" pile for so long.  I worked some on Mary Ann last night - just the triple line surround - not very interesting so I didn't take a picture.

Over the weekend I had a great DVD from Netflix arrive - "Chaplin" - 1992 - starring Robert Downey Jr, Geraldine Chaplin, Paul Rhys, John Thaw, Moira Kelly, Anthony Hopkins, Dan Aykroyd, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Kline.


 The film is told in long flashback and although not a strict Bio-pic it was very entertaining and quite informative.  I thoroughly enjoyed it - it was quite a longish film at about 144 minutes, but they could have added another 1/2 hour and still not cover every aspect of his life.  Robert Downey Jr did a top notch job portraying Chaplin and it was a stroke of genius to use Geraldine Chaplin to play her paternal grandmother - I think is a super film and you will not be disappointed.  Here is the Films trailer.......


That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again.

Take care,

Thanks for the review! John has had this in his collection for quite a while but we haven't yet watched it. Will have to be sure to do that now : ) I think Robert is a wonderful actor!

Looks like my kind of film. My 'must watch' list is getting as long as my 'must stitch' list with you all your recommendations LOL

This looks like my kind of film. I've wanted to see it for a long time as I just love Robert Downey Jr. Maybe I can wrestle the TV and Netflix away from the family soon.

How did I miss Chaplin? I'll try to watch it this week. Tonight is W.E., the Madonna directed movie about Wallis Simpson and Edward, Duke of Windsor (husband is not looking forward to it). I was wondering what you ended up doing with your Halloween piece. I'm not too good at this sort of thing but I think it would look great with some quaker motives (the half ones) around the outside edge to fill in some of those spaces. You could even use the scary ones from Prairie Moon's "Thine is the Trick and the Treat", lots of good options on that chart. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
