This movie is a childhood favorite of mine. I have lot the count of how many times I have seen this movie. It stars Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winoa Ryder.

This is probably one of my top 5 Tim Burton movies. Burton tends to add his own flair when it comes to his movies and they tend to stand of their own.

There so many memorable characters in this movie however for me the one that stands out is Beetlejuice:

Former assistant to Juno ( who is a case worker for the newly deceased) and now a freelance bio-exorcist ghoul. He ends up causing a lot of trouble for the main characters and chaos ensues!

But perhaps my favorite roles of Peter Sellers was a black comedy directed by Hal Ashby called “Being There.”

Peter Sellers was really diverse when it came in creating characters for his movies. Each one had a differently personality and their own comedic charm. Sellers died at the age of 54 on July 24 1980. He was best known for being the life of the party in his roles and always being the funny man. Peter-Sellers-and-his-wicked-Ferrari-275-GTB-in-1965

  1. During the year 1968 five groundbreaking movies were in a competition for Best Picture. Although this is a very thick book I couldn’t put it down!25_kubrick_archives_fp_gb_3d_44804_1503121754_id_907654
  2. This stunning book is chalkful of pictures of the director movies and information on how the movies were made.1200
  3. John Water’s 2015 commencement speech to the graduating class of  Rhode Island’s  School of Design. He give some great advice on how to make trouble!Looking-For-Mister-Goodbar
  4. Based on  the brutal murder of Roseann Quinn. “Looking for Mr. Goodbar”s author Patricia Quinn was not planning to write this novel however a rejection from Esquire Magazine on this subject propel her to write it.purple
  5. One of my more recent reads from the frequently challenged Banned Book list. I can understand why this book was part of the list. However it is beautifully written and definitely worth reading . Alice Walker actually won the Pulitzer Prize for writing this novel in 1963
