Mark My Words- Johnny Depp Gets The Oscar For #BlackMass

I’m not even necessarily a Johnny Depp fan. But his portrayal of Whitey Bulger in Black Mass is chilling.

So next year when he wins you can say your boy Joey called it.  I’ll take Johnny Depp vs the field and I don’t even know who the field is, that’s how strongly I feel about it!

Here’s the trailer, tell me if you agree-

Oscar Messes Up Some Little Rat’s Evening and a Cat vs Rat Poll

I don’t know how he does it without claws.  I guess cats are just quicker than rats.  Either that or he’s just relentlessly going for the kills all day long and every once in a while gets lucky.

Guess we may as well poll it.


Oscar – Pet of the Week At Cape Ann Animal Aid

Here’s the second installment of GMG Pet of The Week-

Good Morning Gloucester!  I am all ready for rainy weather or whatever comes
my way.   My name is Oscar and I am Dachshund.   I love toys and you will
never see me without one in my mouth or near by.
I am a little guy who likes the outdoors.  I like to hike in the woods, walk and don’t let these
short legs fool you – I can keep up with you.   I like my naps, too.   I love to curl up in the
afternoon on a nice soft blanket.   I enjoy riding in the car and just being with people.
I get along with most dogs as long as these don’t take my toys.  I have a little
confession – I like cats but I just love to chase them!  I am being fostered because at
the shelter I was feeling too stressed out and always awake checking to see if anyone
was going to take my toys.  One dog – he looked like half-a-pony – I thought for sure
if I fell asleep he was going to take my toys.   Because of my "intense" style, I am
looking for an adult home.  If you think you could be person(s), please give the shelter
a call so we might chat a little more!   The Cape Ann Animal Aid is located at
260 Main Street in Gloucester and may be reached at (978) 283-6055

One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. The two men conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised that he can’t remember a thing anymore about that period of his life. Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in surreal images. Director Ari Folman’s animated documentary has been acclaimed worldwide and is winner of 6 Israeli Film Academy Awards, including Best Film, Director, Screenplay and Art Direction, and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

When Kym (Anne Hathaway) returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel, she brings a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party’s abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym—with her black-comic one-liners and knack for bombshell drama—is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that have always been a hallmark of Jonathan Demme’s films, Rachel Getting Married paints a strikingly perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait.

“A triumph — Demme’s finest work since ‘The Silence Of The Lambs,’ and a movie that tingles with life.” -Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“’Rachel Getting Married’ is a masterpiece.” -David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Academy Award Nominee, Best Actress, Anne Hathaway
