Gentle Friends I thought I would leave you with some film thoughts today. Since I watch lots of different films from all periods and styles I think these two films, which have absolutely nothing to do with each other (except I viewed them recently) would make for some nice viewing for others...
First up will be the Noir Classic "Gun Crazy" 1950 - directed by Joseph Lewis, original called "Deadly is the Female" - starring Peggy Cummins and John Dall.
The film is about the life of a man we see grow from a child to an adult obsessed with guns... then guns and a woman!! Not only obsessed but willing to do anything for his beautiful but "bad girl" turned wife. His willingness to please and do anything turns into a crime spree for the gun-toting husband and wife team.
The second film is a much newer one - "Rise of the Guardians" - 2012 - a 3D computer generated film from the books by William Joyce.
The Band of Guardians include Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and the newest Guardian, Jack Frost - their mission is to protect the children of the world. The film revolves around their fight against Pitch, the Bogeyman. A really wonderful film, both visually and story wise. It seemed a bit intense at moments and I would not recommend it for really small kids, but for most kids I would think it would be fine.
Both of these are worth a look and both are on DVD so rentable. That's about it for today sports fans. Check in on Monday to see who is the winner of my Book Gift-a-way (see last post). Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
