The love of love is on your face, .....


Today while trolling the web, my heart gave several pings of nostalgia after coming across the Deadline Hollywood article “Petula Clark, Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield Musical ‘A Sign Of The Times’ Sets NYC Debut”. As I read the article, I was immediately transported back to my early teen years and my room where I kept my little blue box record player that played 33 1/2, 45, and LP recordings made of real vinyl. 



I remember that after school and on weekends dancing and singing along to each songs mentioned in the article (“Downtown,” “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “Rescue Me,” “I Know A Place”) and many other music artist of that times. Now in New York City the musical, A Sign of the Times to honor these artists will open soon. In my view and  knowing full well that the tribute will be a success, I hope that it will make here to the Duke Energy Center for the Arts - Mahaffey Theater here in Tampa Bay.

The official synopsis: Summer, 1965. With the country in transition – as the war in Vietnam rages on and struggles for civil rights and women’s liberation command headlines – one aspirational young woman finds herself in New York City, and ready to dive into this brave new world. In A Sign of the Times, journey back to America’s most unforgettable decade as a young photographer tries to make her way amid the changing times that defined an era. -- Deadline Hollywoo

I Am Dragon

I just watched one of the greatest love stories ever. Anyone that really knows me knows that I love dragon stories, the good ones, the funny ones and the ones about dragons that will eat you up.  I love them all. I guess my fascination with them started after watching one of the many King Arthur adaptation films, in which Merlin was communicating with the dragon beneath his crystal cave. However, all we saw as viewers was deep ripples being stirred by something large that we could only imagine was the dragon swimming beneath the water.  Nevertheless, from that day on I was hooked and it doesn’t matter what part of the world the dragon originated from, I have watched and read about them from the time I was a young girl and now up into my senior years. 

This brings me to the subject of tonight’s post. While trolling the Roku Channel; I found the film “I Am Dragon”. The film is a heartfelt dragon story about a princess offered up to a dragon while singing a traditional dragon song on the day of her marriage. If the princess’s betrothed finds her and kills the dragon, then he is considered worthy of marrying the princess and a mighty dragon slayer. However, in “I Am Dragon” there is more to this princess and dragon story than one would guess.  This is a great film for the entire family, and as far as ratings goes, “I Am Dragon” is up there with such films as  “Dragonslayer” (1981), “Reign of Fire” (2002) and “Dragonheart” (1996 and all its sequels).. ‘I Am Dragon” is a 2015 Russian film.

The Exorcist: Believer – In Theaters October 6

Exactly 50 years ago this fall, the most terrifying horror film in history landed on screens, shocking audiences around the world. Now, on Friday, October 6, a new chapter begins. From Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green, who shattered the status quo with their resurrection of the Halloween franchise, comes The Exorcist: Believer.  

Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding (Tony winner and Oscar® nominee Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in Miami, Hamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett, Good Girls) on his own. 


But when Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia O’Neill), disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.

For the first time since the 1973 film, Oscar® winner Ellen Burstyn reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil, an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.

The film also stars Emmy winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary) as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, and Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles (Harriet, The Righteous Gemstones) and two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon, Bloodline) as the parents of Katherine, Angela’s friend.

When The Exorcist, based on the best-selling book by William Peter Blatty, was released, it changed the culture forever, obliterating box office records and earning 10 Academy Award® nominations, becoming the first horror film ever nominated for Best Picture.  

The Exorcist: Believer is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Peter Sattler (Camp X-Ray) and David Gordon Green, from a story by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills), Danny McBride (Halloween trilogy) and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by William Peter Blatty.

The film is produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse and by David Robinson and James G. Robinson for Morgan Creek Entertainment.

The executive producers are Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Stephanie Allain, Ryan Turek and Atilla Yücer. Universal Pictures presents a Blumhouse/Morgan Creek Entertainment production in association with Rough House Picures.
