Getting back in the swing of going to movies, went to The King's Speech
this evening. Totally enjoyed it, although not a whole lot happens. And it's amazing, it gets an R rating for a few cuss words, whereas blowing up lots of people is more acceptable.
I was listening to a Fresh Air piece this morning at the track, movie reviewer for NPR with his take on the best of last year, top of the list was Winter Bone. Hadn't seen many of his top 10, but had seen this one, and loved it. But he said it wouldn't get any of the awards, and mentioned The King's Speech as a sure bet for Oscars. Not that I would know, the people in the movie business see these things with a whole different eye than I do.
(Similarly, I was reading an article in The New Yorker about a fashion designer. Quite a remarkable talent. Some people's brains just work in a completely different way than mine does.)
