One Day at a Time Original TV Series 1975 Phenomenal!

I’ve been having a good time watching “One Day at a Time”. It has a great story about a mom -Ann Romano- who moved out on her own with her two teenage daughters: the rebellious Julie and the wisecracking Barbara. Ann Romano, fantastically played by Bonnie Franklin.

I love the premise of the show: a divorcee mom with two daughters not being afraid of making it in the world alone, feeling free, hopeful, happy and strong.
I don’t know if you, reader, have watched this tv show, if you haven’t and you like to have a good time with your family, I recommend you see it.

 

Another thing I adore about this series is the theme song: 

 

 

One Day at a Time premiered on December 16, 1975 and ended in 1984; 9 seasons. It was best known as a staple of the CBS Sunday-night lineup, along with Archie Bunker’s Place, Alice and The Jeffersons.

Ann frequently struggles with maintaining her role as mother while affording her daughters the freedom she never had as a young woman. David Kane, Ann’s divorce lawyer and neighbor, takes a romantic interest in her, but she isn’t ready to remarry. Dwayne Schneider, the building’s quirky superintendent (most often referred to only by his last name), provides usually-unwanted advice to the tenants.

FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS

 

I love watching movies. Drama, love, comedy, science fiction, terror, horror, fantasy, suspense, action and other genre. The only ones that I do not like are

 

1. the ones where they show sexual violence against women or children.

 

2. lots of gun shootings in movies…tsk, tsk, nope…they bore me.

 

Other than those mentioned above…welcome movies!

Movie of the Day: "Fathers and Daughters" Get Your Tissues Handy! 1

 

If you, like me, love movies and you haven’t watched this one, be careful because there are some spoilers. So, STOP READING RIGHT NOW!

 

Today’s movie is about a father (Russell Crowe) who loves his daughter (Amanda Seyfried) and fights for her until the end of his life, which was tragic to say the least, and sad.

 

One of the best pictures I have seen in a long-time. Russell Crowe gives a powerful performance as the writer whose mental illness is brought on by the car crash that killed his wife while they were arguing and he was driving.

 

This is a wonderful story of interpersonal relations and the ability to help others but not themselves as shown by his adult daughter.

The idea of flashbacks works wonderfully here as we see how this tragedy affected their lives as well as their brother-in-law and sister-in-law who would sue for custody of their niece only until revelations came out about the former.

 

I haven’t seen Crowe this good in years. He is rather subdued while being objected to mental illness. As a social worker-aspiring psychologist, Seyfried can help others but has difficulty in her own relationships which almost destroys her.

 

Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried in Fathers and Daughters, great performance!

THE OSCARS 2019 SHOULD GO TO ……  -THIS IS MY -Dr. Castro- OPINION ….

 

I think that Melissa McCarthy should win the Oscars 2019 for best actress in a movie that doesn’t have the best screen play. A movie were the topic and theme are overrated. I personally love the movie, yes, but NOT for an Oscar, however, McCarthy should win the prize. She deserves it. She is the best among the nominees.

This doesn’t mean that I don’t like Glenn Close. In fact, I adore her, but, her acting in this movie “The Wife” was one of her worst, or better said yet, the only movie I have seen her act really poorly, compared to many others were she has been brilliant. But we all know that the Oscars are politics and favoritisms and the “why we haven’t given an Oscar to Glenn Close before? She deserves one now”

 

Now, do not let me start talking about Yalitzia Aparicio. She doesn’t deserve to be among the nominees for Best Leading actress. It is a gross disparity to put her with Glenn Close, McCarthy, Lady Gaga and Olivia Colman. However, I truly think that she -Yalitzia Aparicio- should win for BEST NEW ACTRESS nomination and win the Oscar prize. She is great and I think she is going to have a great future in Hollywood should she pursue the acting career. I wish her the best. 

 

MY FAVORITE MOVIE TO WIN: ROMA  Definitely, hands down!

My favorite BEST SONG: SHALLOW by Lady Gaga

 

This song HAS to win. The lyrics, the musical notes, the orchestra, the musical direction, Lady Gaga’s singing and interpretation, the soul of the song is in it and in me. Oh man, IT HAS TO WIN. It is a great musical piece of art!

I am sure that most of the actresses today will be wearing completely bespoke dresses designed specifically for them by top designers. They are already showing off how good they look at the different luncheons, gatherings and interviews they have had previous tonight’s Oscars!
