When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to overpopulation, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community โ€” a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

This movie is truly an adventure! Are you ready??

It “feelsโ€ like a lot of things… At first… you’ll think: documentary… then a piece from a show like 60 minutes… and then an

info-mercial … ohh oh whoop! there it is…sci- fi comedy… (which is cute… ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ) –>next comes drama… and finally….Wait for it…. wait for it… youโ€™ll know itโ€™s coming… but youโ€™ll be surprised all the same… one of the โ€œsweetest love stories…โ€ ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’•

Youโ€™ll say awwww…..๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค— then bust out with bwaaahhh!!! Wooo!!hahahaaaa!!!! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ Well alrighty then… letโ€™s set up a quick outline for ya…

…. And the story goes a little something like this….

The great new hope for our planet is downsizing.

Itโ€™s great for the environment…and a major step to resolve over population problems..

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Keep in mind… this is a **permanent** procedure that not only shrinks human bodies, but footprints ๐Ÿ‘ฃ …as well as the cost of living.

This BOLD & BRAVE science experiment… from Norwegian scientists creates a whole new class of people who have opted to โ€œgo smallโ€ โ€” and the world ๐ŸŒŽ paves the way for them to have a new life!!!

There ar

where everyone can afford a dream house….

Iโ€™m talking the MEGA MANSION of your dreams.. worth MILLIONS!!! ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐโ€” with all the perks.. and amenities your heart desires…. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Keep in mind now… to get this… all you have to do… is shrink yourself down to 5 inches tall! And once you do it……… There.is.no.turning.back!!!! ๐Ÿคจ

A hardworking… and good natured working class guy named โ€œPaulโ€ โ€” does all he can ~crunching~ the numbers with his personal budget… to improve his quality of life…

Soooo…. He and his wife go searching for their โ€œDream Home..โ€ ๐Ÿ Through the process… he watches carefully how her eyes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ light up… with the beautiful brand new homes…

***ALL HE WANTS TO DO….***

IS… MAKE HER HAPPY! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Whelp…Paul ( Matt Damon) and his wife, Audrey (Kristen Wiig), decide to take the plunge and ship off to Leisureland, one of the exclusive communities.

Goodbye stress! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ …. or Not???? Go quickly into the closet theatre you can to see how this saga unfolds…

Kristen Wiig is just naturally funny in everything she does!!! ๐Ÿ˜† โ€”-> but this time… her part is really gonna surprise you!!! .. When I see billboards up around town… I smile… and say GEE WIZ!what a MOVIE!!!

I was all into this movie! –Geeked!!!– I picked up souvenirs ….and everything …

*** How do you like my shrunken (Paul), Matt Damon cookies????

-LOL!- ๐Ÿ˜„

This is one of my FAVORITE movies of the year!!! I was sitting there watching it going… oh my! I can not believe this!!! Lolz!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

The adventures youโ€™ll experience in this roller coaster ride of a lifestyle change….is nothing short of AMAZING!!!

Hong Chau. Remember that name! Her performance in this film… is a game changer!!! She is ~truly~ a force to be reckoned with!!!

Hong… who is from New Orleans…says she had to audition SEVERAL times to snag this role… and patiently wait a good while… before she found out that YES!!! She got the part!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ

In โ€œDOWNSIZINGโ€ โ€”>This little lady walks softly… but carries a big stick!

Or…should I say she ~walks on a big stick…. ( youโ€™ll get that… when you see the movie… ) โ€”> you know I have to tease it!!! But trust and believe… itโ€™s all VERY intriguing…

You just gotta see Hong in action!!!! ******* whoa!!!!๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜‡******

Sheโ€™s getting nominations for her performance left & right!!! Well deserved too!!!

DOWNSIZING has been rapidly moving up the food chain… as far as great movies go…. In fact…Itโ€™s being touted as one of the BEST movies of the year!!!

The REST of your Life can be the BEST of your life!!!Anybody over 60… is โ€œJust Getting Started!!!โ€

Life after retirement… is ALL that for this crew!

There are parties galore! Folks are grown and sexy… and if its not one thing… it’s another!!!

It’s all good though… especially if you’re Morgan Freeman’s character… ( Duke Diver)

Diver is living the “high life” managing a luxurious resort in sunny… Palm Springs, California! ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ

He soon faces competition from Leo ( Tommy Lee Jones), a former military man who likes the same woman that Duke is interested in. ( Rene Russo)

Diver’s past suddenly catches up with him, he must put aside his differences and reluctantly team up with Leo to stop whoever is trying to kill him.

Chivalry…. and Rivalry…. and a fair damsel in the middle of it all… but is that ALL to this sweet story???

Absolutely NOT! There’s MORE jealousy… mystery… drama… vengeful attacks…and lots of action!

Seems to me… that the “HIGH SCHOOL” concept of the insiders vs the outsiders… and the privilege of being with the “in crowd” follows socially conscious folks… all the days of life!

There is plenty of personality and style with this mature crowd… and you’ve never seen senior citizens look BETTER !!!

Rene Russo & Cheryl Lee Ralph have aged like fine wine ๐Ÿท and remind us all… once again… that age is just a number! They’re gorgeous!

I got a real kick out of watching this movie… and told Director Ron Shelton… (who is also the writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham), that this new comedy would be a HIT with my mom’s bridge club members and exercise group!!!!

The ladies enjoy going out to the movies… and would be delighted!!!

I was hrilled to attend the premiere…

and left the theater thinking….

I’m so GLAD they made this movie!!!

These are seasoned actors we know… and love…โค๏ธ who deserve a chance to be featured in a good story!

I left the theater thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ… I can’t wait for other people to see it! Young adults…seniors…middle aged folks…***EVERYBODY*** with a “wicked” sense of humor… ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฑ … and mature enough to handle the subject matter…

I mean… who doesn’t want a good laugh….๐Ÿ˜‚—-> especially when it’s not like your ((( air quotes with fingers…))) TYPICAL slap stick humor… ๐Ÿคช

With ageism being a hot button issue in Hollywood right now… this movie is a great reminder… that there are **LOTS** of sensational stories out there… where older performers can be in the spotlight and SHINE!!!!

A good story… is just a GOOD STORY RIGHT???

Let’s hope that film makers ๐ŸŽฅ create more good material for diverse audiences… ((including mature performers)))… who CAN attract folks to fill seats in theaters… rally groups of their friends to see these films over… and over again…

-and- buy TONS of concessions…๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฅค in theatres… and even purchase movies on DVD when they come out…

Movie Goers in their GOLDEN YEARS… have accumulated lots of GOLDEN COINS to spend on what they like….. and I’d say… they’d be proud to spend those shillings on projects featuring people who look JUST LIKE THEM!!!

Get the picture???? Good!!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Go and see… It’s Cool! ๐Ÿ˜Ž ~ Evette Dabney

Gary Oldman SHINES โœจBRIGHT โœจ in โ€œDARKEST HOUR

The DARKEST HOUR is set in London, 1940…during the beginning of World War II. the ~NEW~ British Prime Minister…Winston Churchill urges parliament not to negotiate with Adolf Hitler…

Well…. As a person who values history so much… I felt as though a magic spell ๐Ÿ’ซwas cast… history books opened…๐Ÿ“–… the clock turned back… ๐Ÿ•ฐ and HISTORY played out… (again), on the BIG SCREEN…This time…we could see what REALLY went down.. ๐Ÿ‘€ in the days..and the seconds… leading up into WORLD WAR ll… Gary Oldman gives what I believe is his FINEST performance EVER!!! Weโ€™re talking OSCAR WORTHY FOLKS!!! He’s scored a GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION…. and SAG nomination ….. this far!You must know… that Gary Oldman went over… and beyond to get a complete understanding of the prime minister. He read biographies…carefully watched historic film footage, visited Churchillโ€™s home at Blenheim Palace, and spoke to family members… ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ Hey Everybody… HE. NAILED.ITโ€ผ๏ธ I thoroughly enjoyed watching his performance!!!I was absolutely โœจmesmerized โœจ watching him in action… How did he do it?! Iโ€™ve watched enough historic footage in documentaries…and so forth… to realize he truly captured the SOUL and SPIRIT of this powerful man!He was transformed into the historic Icon … with an extensive make-up job..by a legendary makeup artist …and prosthetics… ((( weโ€™ll get back tothis incredible makeover in a minute! โ˜๐Ÿฝ))
Foes
scenes… Extremely frustrated…. Churchill stated: “How many more dictators must be wooed, appeased, given immense privileges before we learn?โ€

N

p
o character…Oldman brought the house down…. and the crowd went silent….. when he shouted:

**********************************

You can NOT reason with a TIGER ๐Ÿ… when your head is in its mouth!โ€
*******
br>This he
pivotal scene that changed the course of history!

Oldman makes us feel the tension…. as he struggled over the best move..

Should he negotiate with Nazi Germany

-or- lead his nation into war against Adolf Hitler…despite the British and Allied troops cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk.

Imagine the stress he must have felt…

We literally witness something inside the prime minister…. snap ๐Ÿ’ฅand his power within is restored… and he established his authority…. once…. and for ALL!

Now

!

He never.. ever

let his cast members see him…

without full make up while filming…

Heโ€™d arrive on set early and endure

4 hours in the make-up chair…It took

6 months to get the process down pat… and by the

way..wore the makeup about 61 times…

when all was said and done… and the movie wrapped .. Gary spent 200 hours in the make-up chair! And can we also add in…all the extensive speeches… he had

to perfect… in Churchillโ€™s slightly slurred

speech…

**** TALK ABOUT KEEPING IT REAL!!!****

When Gary decided to take on this

role… he told the director EXACTLY who

he wanted to do MAKEUP….

There was just one small

Problem… make up Kazuhiro Tsuji was retired… but living in Los Angeles…The production company searched
</str
the stars aligned…
๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸThe Crew convinced him to come out of retirement… and take on the project!

Special prosthetics.. created from silicone rubber…were applied to the entire face except…for Oldmanโ€™s forehead and lips…

He needed that bit of flexibility for facial expressions.

A foam bodysuit was constructed to add extra weight to his slight frame…

At this point in life… Oldman felt it was too risky for his health… to gain the extra pounds so quickly…

Last but not least…Oldman…had his head completely shaved so a wig…and hairpieces could be added.

Hopefully…Oldmanโ€™s efforts will be paid off in GOLD..

OSCAR GOLD… and many other deserving awards…

He was just nominated for a Golden Globe… and SAG Award.

There will surely be other nominations to come! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Word on the street… is that Oldman has emerged as an OSCAR front-runner for the BEST ACTOR award…

Those TOP HONORS.. will be handed out at the 90th Academy Awards on March 4.

Oldman is joined by an outstanding cast to re-Live these incredible moments…

Dire
toric biopic…
