Just finished reading this book...It is amazing. This is true literature and is SO much better than 50 Shades of Grey. Leo Tolstoy is an artist and creates a world that I wish I could be and live in. I recommend this book! Don't be afraid to read it because it is so large because it is amazing
Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell. In an attempt to reclaim her life, the author attempts to make all 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. And in her newfound appreciation for calves' livers, Julie also discovers a new life filled with surprise and joy.
Julie & Julia. Really loved it! I don't know why I put off watching it for so long...I became a bit obsessed with Julia Child after reading "My Life in France" a couple of years ago. This was really a sweet film. And the ending with a lovely version of a song I adore, "Time After Time"...perfection.
Young Frankenstein? Film Noir? Yes, its probably one of the funniest films ever made. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall to watch these actors cracking up between takes. While the genre doesn't really include comedies this film is a loving noir tribute to the original Frankenstein movies. The studio wanted Mel Brooks to do it in color. He refused and threatened to walk. Luv, luv, luv the two of them!
