We watched 3 movies this weekend. My favorite was All That Jazz. I originally saw it in the theater in 1979. I was 17 at the time. I wonder why I wanted to see it then? It is not your typical teenage movie. Anyway, it must have made an impression on me because when I saw it this time I remembered lots of things from the first time I saw it. It was really great and has some totally excellent dance numbers that are choreographed by Bob Fosse who also directed the film. The story is based on his life. Ann Reinking is in the movie and does the most gorgeous dancing.... Below are some scenes from the movie. I was glad to find some of the extended dance scenes on You Tube because I am addicted to watching them now. Click here if you want to see the ending dance number.
We also enjoyed Ratatouile. The animation was excellent and the story was quite nice and sweet. Never thought I would feel warmly about a rat, but you just never know what might happen in life right?
Lastly we watched Little Miss Sunshine which was very good, but the weakest of these three movies. Love that Abigail Breslin though and I thought Steve Carell was excellent in this role. So different from his role on "The Office."
Happy work week everyone!
