Showing 1 - 2 of 2 Movie Blogs
No time like the present to give thanks; and, someone's email that was circulating (that I was unable to reply to) prompted this blog. Rather than fill up everyone's inboxes, how about we list our favorite members on here!
Who's opinions on the RT community are you most thankful for?
My favorites are THE ILLEST, & Quiet.
By no means does this mean that I value anyone else's opinions less, or that I even agree with these three all the time. I just enjoy their writing style and find their critiques on movies refreshing and fun! So thanks guys (and gals)!
Your turn, give me a top three - they can be friends, strangers, or just someone you stumbled on their first review today!
There are moments in our lives that, if rated, rank very high - and - very low. In taking stock of late, I realized that it was only in the face of the very high moments that the recent ones can even manage to dip so low on my ranking scale. And perhaps, if I were to appreciate the food, shelter and creature comforts I have ... they may not be so bad after all.
While taking stock of all the things that have transpired in the last year or so, I find my greatest joys have been in the company of others - some even in the face of misfortune. As each year has passed, I've craved certain people in my life more than things, coveting the connection more than a collection of material items. The last year has come with its own set of heartbreaking choices and a new feeling of 'independence' -- that has never felt quite as isolating as it does now.
Remember in the film Vanilla Sky when Brian, (played by Jason Lee) warns David (Tom Cruise): "the sweet is never as sweet without the sour, and I know the sour." I know that I felt sweet last year, but I definitely felt it's slow and painful removal over the last few months. Was the sweet taken away to once again balance out the sweet-sour scale? I guess time will tell. If this is the case, I suppose I'll just have to be patient for the sweet to come back around.
