One of my favorite films from Alexander Payne (Sideways director). Jack Nicholson gives a fine low-key performance.
About Schmidt (2002) Director: Alexander Payne starring Jack Nicholson, Kathy Bates, Hope Davis and Dermot Mulroney. After the sudden death of his wife a man upon retirement embarks on a journey to his estranged daughter's wedding only to discover more about himself and life than he ever expected.
SOBRE SCHMIDT About Schmidt (2002) Rated R 7.2 A man upon retirement embarks on a journey to his estranged daughter's wedding only to discover more about himself and life than he ever expected. (This would be a good movie for the recently widowed person. It's slow but insightful and quirky.)
After his wife dies, Warren Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) drives out of the cuckoo's nest and onto a road trip to Americana. Written/directed by Alexander Payne ("The Descendants").
About Schmidt (2002) ●彡 A man upon retirement embarks on a journey to his estranged daughter's wedding only to discover more about himself and life than he ever expected.
About Schmidt, 2002, Alexander Payne (Jack Nicholson, Kathy Bates, Hope Davis). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/About_Schmidt
2002 When insurance actuary Warren Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) retires and his wife dies, he looks for life's meaning on a road trip to his daughter's (Hope Davis) upcoming wedding to a waterbed salesman (Dermot Mulroney). But Schmidt can't seem to get anything right. En route to the wedding, he shares his life through letters with a Tanzanian boy he's sponsoring for 73 cents a day -- and soon, Schmidt discovers renewed purpose.
The film follows Schmidt as he retires from his pedestrian job, followed by the death of his wife for whom he had lost affection. He goes on a road trip in order to attend the wedding of his only daughter to a man and into a family he does not particularly like. Events compel him to reflect on his life with a sense of futility that lasts until the final moments of the film. The film was both a commercial and a critical success.

"I'll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can't see it, but I can feel it." My all time favorite movie and quote! <3
Who could ever forget this movie? This easily became one of my early favorite movies when it first arrived on the big screen. Growing up, I enjoyed singing to the songs of Mandy Moore and I find Shane West good looking. Add them both to a movie written by Nicholas Sparks and I was pretty much in the bandwagon of tearjerkers already. I loved this movie, every single bit of it, even the painful ending.
This has always been my all time favorite movie. And always will be.

I love this movie. My fave movie so far

All time fav movie.
. image source: here. edited by me. I almost forgot about this Throwback feature on my blog, and the last time I did it was last year. So this time I'm trying to revive this dying feature by talking about some of my Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations. While I was doing a research to make this post, there are actually tons of movies that are adapted from books—which I never knew about before. In this post, I will list some of my favorite movie adaptations; some might be quite old and some are quite recent. I might actually have many more movie adaptations that I love, but so far these are the ones at the top of my head right now. I listed the movies in no particular order, but I kind of separate them into genres. Feel free to share some good book to movie adaptations you've watched that are not on this list ;) (I also included some book review/movie adaptation review links that are available on this blog) A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks (2002) I don't remember the exact time I watched this movie, but it sure is a long time ago—even before I started reading Nicholas Sparks' books, I think. This movie managed to make me cry buckets, and it's probably one of the best romance movies I've watched. Only later did I knew this was adapted from a book; and when I started reading all of Nicholas Sparks' books, I also read the original story of A Walk to Remember. And I actually think that I liked the movie better. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks (2004) With this one, I watched it some time after I read the book. It's like a classic love story between a rich girl and a not-so-rich guy. They're separated and reunited after 14 years apart. I think I enjoyed the movie as much as I enjoyed the book. I fell in love with Ryan Gosling because of this movie. He's such a sweetheart
Arsenic and Old Lace 1944 Comedy | Crime | Romance http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036613/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
Movies Touch, Lace 1944, Cary Grant, Favorite Movies, Italian Movie Posters, Classic Movies, Grant Movie
Cast: Cary Grant Priscilla Lane Raymond Massey Jack Carson Edward Everett Horton Peter Lorre Josephine Hull Jean Adair John Alexander James Gleason Grant Mitchell Charles Lane Garry Owen. This is a Frank Capra’s homicidal farce which adapted from a sensational Broadway play in the 40’s. The film version was quite successful in the box office as well at that time and has preserved its classic status until today.
If you are going to see ONE Cary Grant movie, make it Arsenic & Old Lace, it is hilarious!
One of my favorite movies
Title: Arsenic And Old Lace Year: 1944 Country: USA Language: English, German Genre: Comedy Director: Frank Capra Writers: Julius J. Epstein Philip G. Epstein Joseph Kesselring Cast: Cary Grant Priscilla Lane Raymond Massey Jack Carson Edward Everett Horton Peter Lorre Josephine Hull Jean Adair John Alexander James Gleason Grant Mitchell Charles Lane Garry Owen Rating: 7/10 This is a Frank Capra’s homicidal farce which adapted from a sensational Broadway play in the 40’s. The film version was quite successful in the box office as well at that time and has preserved its classic status until today. Frank Capra is my favorite Hollywood director of the Golden Age and I keep consistently watching his opuses all these years and will continue in the future too. Arsenic And Old Lace is among his finest works without doubt, nevertheless the theatrical attribute on the contrary hampers the film from fetching its altitude which it should had reached. To to specific, what I mean is the tempo for the audience to assimilate the entire plot is in haste despite of its 118-minutes running time, all the characters seem to convey their performances in a rapid speed without rendering much time for us to ruminate, lest we would sense its logically inconsequent absurdities. I was enlightened to watch the first half of the film, the two innocently murderous Brewster aunties are truly one of a kind (thanks to Josephine Hull and Jean Adair’s sincerely over-the-top performances), on the other hand, the main protagonist Cary Grant is physically engaged himself into the play while the awkwardness residually shows off as if himself is aware of the unedifying plot and wish it would finish asap. Raymond Massey, who replaced Boris Karloff in the film version, put on a new look as a mimicry of Boris and being the sole villain in the film, his presence and the conversations between him and Peter Lorre (the short and coward doctor from Germany) establish a fresh yet scaring B-film flavor, which pitifully diminishes under the pressure of the pervasively farcical aura. After all, I have no intention and ability to make an essay to discuss the love-hate relationship between play and film, however I am conscious that maybe I am a lesser theatrical enthusiast as I thought, which is definitely new for me.

Nobel Prize: 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. An extraordinary example of post-modern magical realism.
100 Years of Solitude- Gabriel Garcia Marquez I found this an appropriate time to pin this, since the author's recent passing. My father has been talking about this book for years, and I picked it up this morning. I'm very excited to read it, as i've only heard good things about it.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez - AP English Summer Reading List 2013
One Hundred Years of Solitude // Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This novel follows the lives of seven generations of the Buenida family in the mythical town of Macondo. There was no plot to speak of, and everything that happened was just weird... ranging from mildly amusing, to disgusting. Plus if one more person was named some variation of Jose and/or Arcadio and/or Aureliano, I was gonna lose it. Oh mythical realism- sometimes I enjoy you, and sometimes I really really don't.

This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper - Judd Foxman's life is already in shambles when he receives the news that his father has died. Now he is forced to spend the next seven days sitting shiva with his delightfully dysfunctional family. Sometimes cringe-worthy at others laugh-out-loud funny, at it's heart are flawed characters that are all too human. (A Bit Bookish ~JB pop-Eggs)
