Upgrade your Moviegoing πŸŽ₯Experience… and see DOWNSIZING… It’s a TALL tale… about some very interesting Lil’ folks! πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­folks!!!

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 β€” a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

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

It “feels” 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… πŸ™†πŸ½β€β™€οΈ) –>next comes drama… and finally….Wait for it…. wait for it… you’ll know it’s coming… but you’ll be surprised all the same… one of the β€œsweetest love stories…” πŸ’•πŸ’πŸ’•

You’ll say awwww…..πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ€— then bust out with bwaaahhh!!! Wooo!!hahahaaaa!!!! πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Well alrighty then… let’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.

It’s great for the environment…and a major step to resolve over population problems..

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Keep in mind… this is a **permanent** procedure that not only shrinks human bodies, but footprints πŸ‘£ …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 β€œgo small” β€” and the world 🌎 paves the way for them to have a new life!!!

There ar

where everyone can afford a dream house….

I’m talking the MEGA MANSION of your dreams.. worth MILLIONS!!! πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°β€” with all the perks.. and amenities your heart desires…. ❀️❀️❀️❀️

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!!!! 🀨

A hardworking… and good natured working class guy named β€œPaul” β€” 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 β€œDream Home..” 🏠Through the process… he watches carefully how her eyes πŸ‘πŸ‘ light up… with the beautiful brand new homes…

***ALL HE WANTS TO DO….***

IS… MAKE HER HAPPY! πŸ˜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! πŸ‘‹πŸ½ …. 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!!! πŸ˜† β€”-> 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!- πŸ˜„

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!!! 😲

The adventures you’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!!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™Œ

In β€œDOWNSIZING” β€”>This little lady walks softly… but carries a big stick!

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

You just gotta see Hong in action!!!! ******* whoa!!!!πŸ˜―πŸ˜²πŸ˜‡******

She’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…It’s being touted as one of the BEST movies of the year!!!

—> With my two thumbs up… I say YesSsS!!!! πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

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

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! πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈ

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 🍷 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…❀️ who deserve a chance to be featured in a good story!

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

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

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 πŸŽ₯ 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…πŸΏπŸ«πŸ¬πŸŸπŸ”πŸ•πŸ₯€ 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!!!! πŸ‘πŸ½

Go and see… It’s Cool! 😎 ~ Evette Dabney

Gary Oldman SHINES ✨BRIGHT ✨ in β€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 πŸ’«was cast… history books opened…πŸ“–… the clock turned back… πŸ•° and HISTORY played out… (again), on the BIG SCREEN…This time…we could see what REALLY went down.. πŸ‘€ in the days..and the seconds… leading up into WORLD WAR ll… Gary Oldman gives what I believe is his FINEST performance EVER!!! We’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 Churchill’s home at Blenheim Palace, and spoke to family members… πŸ‘‹πŸ½ Hey Everybody… HE. NAILED.IT‼️ I thoroughly enjoyed watching his performance!!!I was absolutely ✨mesmerized ✨ watching him in action… How did he do it?! I’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… ((( we’ll get back tothis incredible makeover in a minute! ☝🏽))
Foes
scenes… Extremely frustrated…. Churchill stated: “How many more dictators must be wooed, appeased, given immense privileges before we learn?”

N

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

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

You can NOT reason with a TIGER πŸ… when your head is in its mouth!”
*******
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 πŸ’₯and 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…

He’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 Churchill’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…
🌟🌟🌟🌟The 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 Oldman’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…Oldman’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! πŸ‘πŸ½

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…

Now…I’m sure there’s a lot more… but I just needed to ☝🏽REMIND you… that this is a very SMART man!!! truly BLESSED!!!! He won’t hesitate to give GOD all the credit… and the glory for his success… 

He often shares testimonies with the audience about his humble beginnings… he talks about being homeless… He talks about all the mistakes he’s made in his life… and his determination to do BETTER as a human being. 

It’s all so compelling to hear! 

The audience loves…when he talks about current events off camera…jokes around… and singles out people in the audience…((( (Hi-Larious!!! πŸ˜„))) 

—-> but people REALLY appreciate him opening up… and sharing personal aspects of his life… Steve is humble. confident, and motivating at the same time. 

 You can hear a pin drop… when he tells these amazing stories… 

He ENCOURAGES people! He makes your day… with all the funny  & uplifting things he presents on the show… 

-and then- …he gives you a little EXTRA motivation to marinate in…when he prepares to leave the stage… and the audience is dismissed.

—-THIS—- is how you build a strong relationship with your audience!!! 

People remember these things... and they go back to their hometowns… and tell family & friends…. who tell more people… and more people… —–> Viewers tune in… and STEVE HARVEY delivers a great show… 

Folks are HOOKED!!!! His popularity & ratings always skyrocket!!!! ——–> πŸ’₯πŸš€πŸ’₯

He’s in a new place… and a new space…. that’s outta sight!!!! 

Get ready to TAKE OFF… and Soar EVEN HIGHER… Mr. Harvey!!!

Your fans have already shown you…”They LOVE ❀️ you… to the moon πŸŒ™ and back!!!

 Thanks for allowing me…Sparkle “E”.. to shine just a little bit… with the SUPER  STARS…✨ ⭐️🌟⭐️✨ in your Entertainment World!!! 🌎

The #Spirited πŸŽ‰ #Socialite and #mediamaven πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’» @evettedabney is on the move!!!

#Wow! #ThereSheGoesAgain! πŸ‘ 

“Stranger Things” has become a major success story for NETFLIX!

This success story…. is a major “VICTORY“… for all aspiring writers, producers, show creators, directors… and all my other “PEEPS” out there… who have great πŸ’‘ ideas for programming…. and really, really… just want a chance!!!!

Well folks… I’m happy to report that Matt & Ross Duffer got that chance… and SCORED!!!! “πŸ™ŒπŸ½”

This will be a good place to insert applause: πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ 

ok great… now I’ll finish with the rest of my commentary! πŸ‘‡πŸ½

The Duffer Brothers had a πŸ’­DREAM… of creating a different kind of show… with a ~mysterious~ vibe to it… when they shared two of the key elements they wanted to be the heart of the show… some reactions were like: πŸ™„ yeah… right… that’s gonna work……

The Duffers wanted to set the show in the 80’s… and use 80’s music… with mysterious…. hmmm… let’s say creepy story-lines…centering about a bunch of nerdy… energetic… precocious kids…


*** DING! πŸ›Ž DING!! πŸ›Ž DING!!!! ***

It turned out to be a “winning” combination… that worked out BETTER than anyone imagined! 


Soooo… they shared what they had written with an EXEC… and he said..”I like it… and said these words we -ALL- PRAY πŸ™πŸ½ to hear…

✨✨✨ “LET’S DO IT!!!!” ✨✨✨

Soooo… the Exec.. & Netflix were ready to roll…. and they stopped a beat saying: “Who ahhh… is going to direct this project?”

WE WANT TO DO IT.... said the Duffers… and fortunately… the higher ups agreed… and the rest is HISTORY!!! 

The Duffer’s have joined creative forces with Shawn Levy.. Dan Cohen.. and others to lead this original dramatic series for NETFLIX 

Award winning actress Winona Ryder stars as as Joyce Byers, who lives in the small Indiana town…(in 1983)..affected by a series of STRANGE things happening. Her characters 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, and she drives a major investigation into his disappearance with local authorities

And with everything going bonkers…an odd little girl surfaces…


called “Eleven” also known as El and 011. The child has psychokinetic abilities and a limited vocabulary… and plucks another strange chord…for the show. 

Monsters… psychic abilities… lab experiments… aliens… and of course the kids… are creating a very THRILLING show on Netflix…

Initial advertisements for the show… stirred interest. A :30 ad featuring more scenes from the show…was highlighted during the 2017 SUPER BOWL…and sparked even MORE curiosity…

 —WELL

faithful viewers have spread the word about how COOL the show is… and it’s popularity SKY ROCKETED!!! 

Season two was green-lit by Netflix before the first season premiered on July 15, 2016. 

People were HOOKED!!! and couldn’t miss seeing …terrifying supernatural forces affect the town… 

I must say… the pacing of the show is exciting… and keeps you on edge. 

The characters are also very interesting… with odd storylines attached to them..

This is probably another reason… why the show has become a massive hit… and recently received 18 EMMY NOMINATIONS!!!!


I’m excited for this cast and crew! They seem like a good bunch of folks… who genuinely seem to like each other… and go the extra mile to give this production the best they have to offer…

I like that! πŸ‘πŸ½


Soooo …… I’m just stopping through… to say ****”CONGRATULATIONS!!!!”***

This show has already won a BUNCH of awards including AFI, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globes, and Critics choice awards…(( just to name a few…))

Just  recently… the creators said they would probably end in show after a couple more seasons…but you can sure BELIEVE … until the very end…we can expect a super thrilling experience indeed!

πŸ€— I slid off the front of my seat cracking up! I leaned off the side of my seat laughing!!! I even nudged the person sitting next to me… and we BOTH laughed hard!!!!

Disclaimer: When I left to go see this movie… It was a grey day… I’m talking California JUNE GLOOM πŸŒ₯ in full effect… I was feeling … BLAH…. 😣 but this Movie…lifted me right outta that haze… 

 πŸ˜ƒ ‘Tis true…. Laughter is GOOD for the soul!

And Boy… Oh Boy DID I LAUGH!!!

πŸ—£ WoOoOoOOoo !!!!!!!!

A ton of hilarious scenes from this comedy… are racing through my mind… but I don’t want to ruin the movie going experience for anybody….. 🀐  -but- ☝🏽

You could say this movie is like the female version of “The Hangover” but….with a few extra doses of “Cray-Cray!!”  Just ZA-NY !!!!

I didn’t have a clue about what involved with this one… so I’m not going to spoil this…. I want your reactions… to EVERYTHING unfolding on that screen to be RAW & REAL!!!

Soooo… Let me paint 🎨 paint a basic outline for you:

Five…longtime college friends who made the BEST memories… and had tons of GOOD TIMES….. ( Back-in-the-day…… REUNITE! ——->>>

Yep! They all hook up ( 10 years LATER..) — for what is ~SUPPOSED~ to be… the “Ultimate Bachelorette Weekend!!!”

The GIRL SQUAD in the movie includes:  aspiring state senator… and Bride-to-be “Jess” (Scarlett Johansson); schoolteacher “Alice” (Jillian Bell)… who is Jess’ insecure…& SUPER needy friend…. 

Alice organized the Bachelorette weekend… down to a “T” !!! (raunchy party favors included) 

okkkk…. 😁—-> more girl crew to introduce to you… 

There’s the grass roots activist friend…”Frankie” (Ilana Glazer), whose onetime lover, “Blair” (Zoe Kravitz), is in the middle of a custody battle…. Last…but not least..is Jess’ “mystery” pal….from Australia… that NO ONE knew about…. ( snickers…πŸ˜…)  “Pippa” (Kate McKinnon), 

Jealous… self proclaimed CHIEF “BESTIE” Alice goes ALL OUT… to undermine this chick  at all costs…. 

She disses this Aussie Babe... left…& right… through the movie πŸŽ₯ call it a running gag… if you will.

When the GAL PALS... make it into the airport.,, and start popping bottles… 🍾 that’s when the movie shoots off…and you know it’s going to be a BLAST… ((( πŸ˜†–snickers…) 

There’s an inside JOKE here… but you have to pay attention to the airport scene..

Hey! “Girls just wanna have fun… but they still have to keep their EARS πŸ‘‚πŸ½& EYES πŸ‘€ open!! -LOL!- 

Well…. The chicks are hyped… and determined to have a FUN TIME… at any cost! 

But then…… little things start to go wrong… and then something else happens 😬….well… let’s just sa… the Domino effect is REAL!!! 

When this fluke thing happens…. you will sit there in SHOCK wondering:

***********************************”How….. in the WORLD did THIS HAPPEN !!??!!” **********************************

……. AND

***********************************“How…… in the world… are they going to get out of THIS ??!!!?!!”

********************************** I couldn’t figure it out…. 

The plot lines… and jaw dropping storylines…are craftily woven together.… with… I don’t know… make believe silly string… or slimy seaweed washed up on the shore from the ocean! 🌊 

🀣🀣🀣 Heheheeeeee!!!!!

The rash decisions this crew makes…😱 alongwith the “craziness” of trying to cover up “some very bad things… is un-believeable!

Friendships are tested… and their bonds strengthened…bringing them ALL closer together…

—–> Insert “GROUP HUG!!!” πŸ‘­πŸ‘­Awwwwww…….. πŸ€—

There are some other surprising moments… that will make you gasp 😲…. so GET READY !

This is a great movie for a group of friends to see… and the follow up conversations… should focus on “Loyalty” and just…. how…. far…. you would go… to have your friends back.… and keep secrets….If you have too….. Oooo….

The director… and co-writer of this “R” rated dark comedy…   is Lucia Aniello from Comedy Central’s excellent β€œBroad City.”

Co-writer… Paul W. Downs… who plays the role of “Peter,” is also a β€œBroad City” vet.

Now here are your marching orders:

Now Everybody “Get to steppin’ straight into your closest theater!!!”

A Handmaids Tale

This DARK tale comes from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale…” 

It focuses on the strange… futuristic world of “Gilead” —->a totalitarian society… what -USED- to be…the United States.

Whoa… talk about something WEIRD and NEW… yet oddly familiar… for periods of time we’ve learned about in history…. with a TWIST!

Think: Pilgrims, and Salem witch trials… strict stories we’ve read about from Puritan times…

Now– make those thoughts more bitter…. imagining a ~dash~ of hunger games… mad max… the scarlet letter..and water world…. 

-sigh- I’m trying my best to sort this out in my mind… and portions of it.. are quite alarming…

You can’t help but wonder… how did all this come to be…in this harshly controlled environment of the future????  What is this world 🌎 coming to ⁉️



Ahhhhh
…. that’s how all of us attending the premiere at the Arclight got HOOKED!!!  

WE WANT MORE DETAILS!!! Episodes 1-3 are now streaming on HULU

While watching the first episode in the theater… I looked around me… in the huge dome…in Hollywood… and everyone was locked in!

 I saw intense expressions on each face… and everyone kept their eyes on that giant screen!!!

I’m pretty sure they will all be subscribing to HULU….to see the future holds in this strange place.

I’m already subscribed… to HULU… and this is ONE MORE intriguing DRAMA… that will definitely be added to my “MUST SEE πŸ‘€LIST!

 Facing environmental disasters.. the curse of infertility… and a plunging birthrate…  Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized…. “return to traditional values….”

As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household… ( the commander is coldly played by Joseph Fiennes… by the way..)  

Offred….. ((not her real name… you have to watch… to get more about that!)))…. is forced into sexual servitude in a desperate attempt to repopulate the world…. 

 In this terrifying society…Offred has to deal with powerful Commanders.. their cruel Wives… domestic Marthas… (these are middle aged…and older women) …and her fellow Handmaids – where ~anyone~ could be a spy for Gilead.

*******  It’s all so DEEP!!!! *******

The GOAL..here . is simply for Offred to SURVIVE! Not to mention the fact…that she yearns to find the daughter taken from her…literally snatched out of her arms… at the beginning of this new nightmare… of a life!

Eventhough frightening tactics have been used to brainwash young women… in every possible way… Offred  struggles to keep her sanity… and not get in any trouble!

At any rate… This new show on HULU.. is going to spark a lot of dialogue… and really get you thinking……………
