I hope all 3 of my readers are enjoying the first 5 days of 2017. I thought now would be a good time to give you a preview of what is coming to “Superponte.com”/ aka “The Skinny from the Fatty”.
I’ve been a bit busy with work, so the blog has suffered. Such is life. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things this month as Movie Season begins with Batman vs Superman!!
Well, the “no blacks allowed” tradition continues at the Academy Awards for a second straight year, but I don’t see this year being as glaring as last year. The only major denial was Idris Elba for “Beasts of no Nation”. Jada Smith is making a stink, likely because Hubby Will Smith did not get nominated for “Concussion”, but lets be real. It was not that great of a movie. Same with “Straight Outta Compton”. It was your standard bio-pic. Nothing special other than the subject matter. That being said, there absolutely is some MAJOR Oscar bait in the mix this year. Here is the list. I will revisit this shortly before the awards at the end of February with my choices.
January 18 2016
2016 is not off to a good start. Hot off the heels of the incredible loss 4 days ago, we lose one of the best actors of the last 30 years.
Alan Rickman made his film debut in Die Hard. Yes, his first role was as the most iconic screen villain of the 80’s. His work over the next 25+ years was terrific.
This man stole the show as Snape, and made him the tragic hero of the story. Amazing.
As so many have said…
It has taken a couple of days, but I have found my way to writing down what could not be written on Monday. It came as a strange realization last night while discussing Bowie with the wife.
I mentioned to her that all of my favorite musicians are now dead.
All of them.
No other news today. Nothing worth writing about….
