Last night I went and saw Sunshine Cleaning, the new film starring Amy Adams and Alan Arkin. The film is about a woman named Rose (Adams), who starts a business with her sister, which requires them to clean up the blood and ooey gooey sticky parts from crime scenes. All the while their nutty father (Arkin) runs around with crazy schemes and paper-thin promises. Oh yeah and some other shit happens in the movie.

I went into the theatre with quite a lot of expectation for this movie, and I walked out thinking, “Eh, it was okay.” It wasn’t a bad film, but at the same time it didn’t blow me out of the water like I hoped it would. First of all, I thought the film was going to be funny, and I only laughed four or five times in two hours.



Don’t get me wrong. Sunshine Cleaning has its moments, but it didn’t totally win me over. Amy Adams is great at everything she does. She is always the darling of my eye. As for Alan Arkin, only one thing came to mind. “Little Miss Sunshine” is over. Of course Arkin was fantabulous in that one, which he one the Oscar for, but he played this character the same way except without the hilarious obscene one-liners that made the “Little Miss Sunshine” role so epic.

Come to think of it both movies are similar, they both have down-on-their-luck dysfunctional families trying to find common ground. But LMS is FUNNY!!

So overall I give the film a 6.5 out of 11.
And for Amy Adams I give her a 10 out of 12 because she’s so wow!

Also check out the actress, Emily Blunt, in Sunshine Cleaning. She gives a good performance.

QATFYG: What is your favorite Amy Adams role? What type of role would you like to see next for Alan Arkin? And have you seen Sunshine Cleaning yet?

  2. no i haven't. Hell, I haven't even seen the wedding date. Is Jack Davenport in that? I may have caught a second of it on the tele, and I think I saw a pissed Jackie D being dragged into his humble abode.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso
