Cheri / Mad Men
I don't make a habit of posting here stuff that's not related to Oscar's Best Actress category! However, I just wanted to shout one or two things! :D
I've seen it. I'm quite sure it's gonna have at least 1 or 2 technical Oscar nominations, but as that hasn't happened yet, I can't post something about it on the other blog: My Latest Oscar Film. So... I've seen it, I understand why some don't like it, but I digg it! I love that it's stylish & erotic and it's my type of film. I don't consider it to be great, but it's a classy effort. It will probably get nominations for Best Art Direction & Costume Design (for sure), but I don't understand why this film isn't also a major contender for Best Cinematography AND Best Original Score. Both of them superb. I just loved how it's all shot in shades of blue. It fits Paris. I don't think Michelle will get nominated, even though she would probably deserve it. And YES, I also believe Kathy Bates is a distraction for the film, but nice to see her anyway.
And the ending scene... I loved the small twist. I thought it was real & dramatic. I smiled. Didn't expect it.
About Mad Men
I've been watching Mad Men since last year, seen all the episodes, including season 1. I like it and usually can't wait for it. Just like Cheri, it's very stylish. And it's the type of drama that I like to see & I would also write. But how good were the last episodes????? Fabulous! The most recent one was very good, but the two before: Brilliant!!! Can this get any better? Four episodes left from Season 3 (I guess). Great show; nothing like it on the market right now!
Those two posters just looked so good put together.
That was all. I'll stick to Best Actress :D
