bad blogger

Yes, I am a bad, bad blogger, being out of touch for so long, but I'm back now and I think I have something interesting for all of you.

I've been in a retro mood recently, and watched two wonderful movies I think you should add to your netflix list. In no particular order, they are:

Some Like It Hot: This stars a very young Jack Lemmon, and a very beautiful Marilyn Monroe. Despite it's age (it was filmed in 1959), the story is fun and well told and the filming is inspired when you consider that in 2010, with all our superior technology we can't tell stories as well. It's well worth a view.

Breakfast At Tiffany's: I have a weakness for Audrey Hepburn, and she is stunning and engaging in this movie. It also stars George Peppard (pre A-Team of course). The music (Henry Mancini) is evocative and accents the story beautifully. As much as I relate to the story, it reminds of my parents (this was story of their generation), and I am reminded of how we have more in common than we don't. Another reminder that much of my teenage rebellion was misguided at times.

I don't think you'll be disappointed, take a view of both.
