In the last couple of months, I spent a lot of time watching 28 Academy Award nominated movies for 2016 so I could write about them.
I only saw two movies last year, so I had to play catch up.
Although there were a few movies I thought were great – “Hidden Figures” and “Arrival,” for example – many of the movies, as usual, were about men. I’m particularly tired of male coming of age stories, the subject of one third of nine movies nominated for best picture.
And, as usual, many of the movies were needlessly violent.
See my article, “Academy Award Nominated Movies for 2016 Still too Violent, Male Dominated” for details.
While I was on my movie marathon, the boomer bloggers in our blogging group were busy this week reading and researching, interviewing and writing about some famous individuals, and others not so well known. A famous poet, a fashion blogger, and a Mom are in the spotlight. A Dad also receives a few good words.
