Well, my weekend has arrived. The weather is overcast, with temps expected to rise into the mid 60's (F), which is the sign that spring is approaching. Today is also a palindrome, meaning there is no difference if your read it frontwards or backwards. 2/22/22. If I were a card player, I'd have to say that deuces are wild. If you don't believe, check out what's happening in the world.
I got around to watching "Being the Ricardos" last evening. I was impressed with Nicole Kidman, and can see why she got an Oscar nomination. Javier Bardam? Sadly, he was no Desi Arnaz. Desi was a fine-boned pretty boy, Javier is not. I felt the political bit of back story used to hold the film together was unnecessary. The tale of Lucy and Ricky is more than fascinating on its own. Interestingly enough, there's no mention of how they purchased RKO, a studio which terminated Lucy's contract when she was 39 because they saw her as too old. Because of this, there isn't even a footnote regarding the fact that it was Lucy who greenlighted a little known, sci-fi show called Star Trek.
I love me some Nicole Kidman....but have yet see anyone perform as her. Im afraid to see it won't hold up as Lucy. Bit she sure looked the part...much like Debra Messing.ReplyDelete
Yep...Russia is going to give the whole plant a gaint enema.
She's actually very good as Lucy.Delete
Oddly enough, I loathed Nicki Kidman until she divorced Tom Cruise, and then I loved her.ReplyDelete
Putin is a micro-dick who will destroy the world to prove he's not a micro-dick.
But he's a micro-dick,
I don't know if he even has a dick. He gave a very Trumpian speech, blaming things on everybody but himself. I think it's because the world is telling him to fuck himself.Delete
I've read good things about The Ricardos. Kidman is a good actress, and like Maddie, I loved her after she left Napoleon Cruise.ReplyDelete
As for Vlad, we'll have to gird our loins. That mini-me with delirium of grandeur is a giant pain in the ass.
He's afraid of democracy and that Russians realize he's been conning them for years.
It's gonna get ugly.
Napoleon Cruise? You give him credit, I didn't think he was that tall. And, Vlad is going to make things ugly.Delete
Good thing I am on season 5 of The Americans, I have all the back story for this next war.ReplyDelete
Haven't seen it, any good?Delete
I really enjoyed Being the Ricardos too - even if Bardem wasn't playing his usualy sexy self! I just love that man! And yes, Kidman was really good as Lucy!ReplyDelete
If you want Javier, you can have him.Delete
I always thought Deborah Messing looked like Lucy's Daughter. I could see Nicole Kidman as playing the part tho', I have never liked her, thought she was the Ice Queen, but she is a good Actress... and yes, dumping Cruise was a wise choice, I don't even know what that attraction was, a most unlikely coupling.ReplyDelete
