5/10: A Beautiful Day in the...
Monday, February 10, 2020

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood The only thing I found confusing about the nominated actor in this Awards Season contender was that he is the leading name of the cast, but he was nominated as supporting actor, but actually he is not the main character, so I guess that's fair enough. To be honest, it's only because of these awards nominations I wanted to see the film, otherwise I didn't know much about it at all, directed by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?). Based on the true story, in 1998, Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is an award-winning but cynical journalist for Esquire magazine. He attends the wedding of his sister Lorraine (Tammy Blanchard), along with his wife Andrea (Susan Kelechi Watson), and their new-born son, Gavin. During the reception, Lloyd starts a fistfight with his estranged father Jerry (Chris Cooper), he is angry that his father abandoned his mother. The next day...

10/10: Life changing I'm really...
Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Life changing I'm really emotional about the town that I come from, Pittsburgh. When people talk down on it or proclaim how they can't wait to get out of here, I get upset. There's nothing like this city to me and nowhere I go in the rest of this world can really measure up.A Rick Sebak documentary can bring me to tears. And watching the trailer for this movie, I realized that I'd probably be moved for its entire running time.I mean, how can you not love Pittsburgh, a city that has given you the 1970's Steelers, probably the roughest gang of brutes that ever took the gridiron; Bruno Sammartino, perhaps the greatest pro wrestler of all time; and also Fred Rodgers, a man who gently helped several generations grow up?Tom Junod started writing for Esquire in 1997, with some of his notable works including The Abortionist, The Rapist Says He's...

7/10: "There is always something you...

"There is always something you can do with the mad that you feel." I'm sure I'm not the only person who expected something different from a movie titled "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood". In fact, when the picture started and got into the story of journalist Tom Junod, represented as Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), I thought I was watching the wrong picture. But as it moved on, the story did proceed to demonstrate the kindness and compassion of the long time children's television show host, known as Mr. Rogers (Tom Hanks). I was particularly impressed with the way Mr. Rogers handled his interviews by Vogel, who's questions were designed to provoke a negative response. Fred always managed to turn things around by becoming the interviewer himself, and gently forcing Vogel to confront the issues in his own life. I was already in my late teen years when 'MisteRogers Neighborhood' came on the air, and even...

9/10: Hanks is a natural choice...

Hanks is a natural choice as Mr. Rogers with aplomb and nostalgia A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD (2019) ***1/2 Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, Susan Kelechi Watson, Maryann Plunkett, Enrico Colantoni, Wendy Makkena, Tammy Blanchard. Typecast (but for a good reason) Hanks as TV icon Fred Rogers does a decent impression of the beloved children's programming host who, while being profiled by jaded journalist Rhys, befriends the psychically wounded writer and cementing a friendship in the process. Filmmaker Marielle Heller wonderfully recreates The Land Of Make-Believe with uncanny precision resulting in a nostalgic retro return to the past for a figure (and his compassion) both sorely missed. HE NEIGHBORHOOD (2019) ***1/2 Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, Susan Kelechi Watson, Maryann Plunkett, Enrico Colantoni, Wendy Makkena, Tammy Blanchard. Typecast (but for a good reason) Hanks as TV icon Fred Rogers does a decent impression of the beloved children's programming host who, while being...

8/10: Here Comes The Neighbourhood I...
Monday, February 24, 2020

Here Comes The Neighbourhood I may be one of the few people who had no idea who Rogers was which extends, of course, to his media shows. All I could think of based on the title was an old Gary Cooper film (which I never actually saw) called Good Neighbour Sam, in which Cooper presumably traded on his 'nice guy' real life image. Tom Hanks seems to be cornering the current market as the poor mans' Jack Lemmon though Lemmon is of course the one they all have to beat in the basic decency department. Again the true story of an unlikely friendship between an entertainer and a non-entertainer mirrors, to a certain extent, the bond between Jazz musician Bud Powell and a French jazz fan which was fictionalized in Bertrand Taverniers' Round Midnight in which pianist Powell was transformed into a saxophonist. Despite the saccharine elements the film is ultimately moving and erll made.
