Movie Diary 12/18/2012

Les Miserables (Tom Hooper, 2012). This Victor Hugo fellow knew a good yarn when he got hold of one. And then they put music to it, and they let the Oscar-winning director of The King’s Speech direct it amidst all the splendor of what appears to be a green screen, and then…well, it goes on. (full review 12/25)

I managed to get myself on TV today, at KING-TV’s “New Day NW,” with Margaret Larson. I talk about the “Celluloid Seattle” exhibit for Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry, and show a few artifacts, here.

At What a Feeling!, more Eighties movies. This time catch up with Philip Saville’s Those Glory, Glory Days (this was an installment in David Puttnam’s “First Love” series), and Lisa Gottlieb’s Just One of the Guys.
