Life of Walter Mitty
 
I went to see this movie tonight and wow! Not what I expected at all. The cinematography was amazing. Really artistic, music was cool, Shirley's part was small but great. I found myself just smiling throughout the whole thing.

I agree that this is a fantastic movie. My husband and I are planning a trip to Iceland this summer after seeing the movie. Shirley's part was small but so important to the plot. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this--I think you will really enjoy it!!
Love,
Joanne

Propaganda Actors and Movies For US Politics at the Academy Awards
 
Moving on to a larger issue (and perhaps a much larger role) can, can anyone clarify why there seems to be a growing majority of actors, and movies including those at the Academy Awards that are simply there to distort the truth, the human condition, just to "rule" public opinion and the masses?? Keep everyone uneducated to the truth so absolutely no one can have a well rounded educated opinion that is based on facts not forced propaganda that's forced down the throats of the masses just to satisfy the propaganda greed, egos and vanity of certain US political parties. Do we all have to lower our standards, and cheapen our talent just to satisfy those who continuously abuse their power and authority?

I saw "Walter Mitty" on Christmas weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I guess I didn't really think of Shirley's part as small because if you think about it....the only person in every frame was Ben Stiller and Shirley's part saved the day!!! :D

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
 
Sean and I watched "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" on Saturday and we just loved it!!! What a lovely message and Shirley's part was so poignant! Thank you Shirley for doing it once again!

Love, Deb
