A couple of evenings ago Mme. Glynskette and I, discovering little was being broadcast on TV that took our fancy, decided to settle down to watch two films. OMG!!! In our innocence could we have have chosen two more diverse!
Luckily we saw the 'worst' first. I am also proud that the choice of this one was not mine - 'Precious'.
Who in their right mind writes this sort of thing. If it was meant to 'alert' me to reality, I would ask whose and the mental state of the writer. I see Oprah is involved - enough said.
I immediately admit to being an escapist and wish to be 'entertained' by the film I am watching - this was foul mouthed manic depression which I suppose I am meant to classify as gritty drama. Oh perleeeese!
Be warned diablog, don't say Glynsky didn't warn you!
In complete contrast - and I am not joking - ....
... the second was great fun, beautifully made with Venice, the queen of the sea, as one of the main stars. Apart from the visual location delights, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp sparked off each other for the whole film giving the best silly plot film I have seen recently a gloss and delight I could never have forseen. Thank heavens the evening was rescued.
This, for fun, silliness, adventure and beautiful people is close to the top of my list - ever. No wonder they stayed there (families and all) for 9 months.
Long live, diablog, escapism.
Yours, diablog, in dreams
