    Snow Falling on Cedars

    ★★★½

    watched on dvd (immediately) after finishing the book.

    Stayed pretty true to the book, (at least one line of dialogue I didn't find true though).

    A lot of back and forth in time period, as the book did, overlapped images and dialogue was a little disorienting, but made sense, especially to give the sense of a letter read multiple times. It was dramatic in that it had sequences of no dialogue and let the swelling music and imagery speak.

  • My Blue Heaven

    My Blue Heaven

    ★★½

    watched on VHS with S.O.
    Two actors I really enjoy. It's a film where the two opposites become more like each other. Crazy stereotyping with Steve Martin's character but it was okay. Irregular to see him as a brunette and not silver-haired!

    There is just something wildly fun about this movie. It's empowering to females even when Rupert Evert is in drag. I'll always love it, no matter how cheesy and campy it is.

    ★★

    I picked up this DVD because of June Diane Raphael, who plays one of Jane Fonda's daughters on Grace and Frankie. I gotta say, I was a bit disappointed, but I'm not sure what I was expecting. Maybe I have a bias against women playing dumb? I would say it's a mix between Romy & Michele's High School Reunion and Dumb & Dumber.

    There were redeeming moments/themes of course. The strain on the relationship between the characters was evident, so that's relatable…
