The 72nd Golden Globes was here and now gone. The big winners are Boyhood, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything. The big losers were the people (including me) who had to sit through that insufferable telecast. It was really bad and it was truly three hours of my life wasted. If you didn’t watch the show, you can download my recap of the broadcast where I not only discuss the winners and talk about the high and low moments of the show but I offer up some analysis as well as where we are heading as the Oscar nominations are coming out this Thursday.
There will be the usual Weekly Movie Podcast on Tuesday as well as a podcast talking about the Oscar nominations on Thursday.
Movie Review Julie and Julia 2009 Starring: Meryl Streep, Amy Adams Directed by: Nora Ephron
Movies that seem to have split personalities rarely are any good. But usually this "two-movies-in-one" problem is unintentional and are examples of bad filmmaking. Julie & Julia is like watching two movies in one but that’s how Nora Ephron intended. It’s the story about Chef Julia Child and a blogger who created a site based on her experiences cooking her way through Child’s cookbook The Art of French Cooking. The movie is presented through the lives of the two women. The problem is that one story is really interesting and entertaining and the other story is annoying and feels time consuming.
