Tweetweek: Garry Marshall,Political Chaos,and Lots of Ghostbusters

Randomness.Sensory overload.Once I started I couldn't stop.Much amusement,a little fright,and beauty after the jump from the world of showbiz and its prisoners...

MUCH MORE AFTER THE JUMP...

POLITICS
It's tough to avoid of late.Can't wait until the conventions are over.

CELEBRITY BEAUTY
Our occasional contributors Nick Davis and Amir Soltani met up in Toronto -- hey,they're celebrities to The Film Experience community so it's worth including  -- I am honored to call them both my friends.亚博主页Also I am pissed I wasn't there but TIFF isn't until September so reunions must wait.

And still more of the hotness via Katya Zamo,Anya-Taylor Joy,Blake Lively,and more...

Fumer tue

I couldn't sleep last night.The moon was too bright and my heart was too full of fresh grief at Garry's passing.I went outside and sat in the absurd blue-white bath of moon,surprised to see my night shadow,I thought,"Garry left on a good night."This morning,I got a text from Heather Matarrazzo saying "Of course Garry left on a full moon."If you know Garry,that he went out when there should be darkness and instead there is full,rare,magic light,is too perfect to be coincidence.It's so him.Garry was goodness itself.He was generous.He was kind beyond kind.He was thoughtful and sweet and so funny you would pee yourself a little.I met him when I was a child who thought she was a grown-up;he treated me with grace and patience and respect and always,always love.I'm so happy I made three films with him.I'm so happy he blessed my son in my belly the last time I saw him (we never think it will be the last time).Before we made the Princess Diaries,he told me "You never know if a movie is going to be a hit or not.The only thing you can control is the memories you make when shooting it.So,let's make some good memories."That advice changed my life even more than the film did.I wish I could say I practice that perfectly,but I can't.Garry loved my rough patches too,and forgave them before I even apologized.He wasn't interested in judgement or non-plot related conflict.He just wanted to have fun and laugh and do good work.He was so,so smart and canny,and yet he lived entirely from his heart.That's how he made movies too.You don't meet a lot of people that kind of courageous nowadays.I couldn't see it when he was right in front of me,but I see him so clearly now that he has moved on- Garry was a Hero.Not a run-into-a-burning-building-to-save-a-hampster hero per se,but he looked on the bright side of every situation and was unfailingly warm and loving to everyone he met.How simple.How extraordinary.Garry: for a kid from the Bronx with weak lungs,you did good.I'm happy to have known you.I can never thank you enough for my life.I'm going to do my best to be just like you.I love you.Safe travels,my friend.

Nick and Amir are HOT

July 22,2016 | Unregistered CommenterIbis

Haaay Amir and Nick!

I'm dying to talk about the new Rocky Horror trailer.Looks heinous.

July 22,2016 | Unregistered CommenterBD

That pic of Julie and Anne with Garry is breathtaking...sigh.

Trump made Melania a star - what he wanted - with that copygate,
a bait taken by the net.
Hope the internauts praise the Hillary Convention
like they did with the Trumpence one.

Considering how many greats we have lost this year,I'm amazed by the outpouring love for Garry Marshall.

July 22,2016 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

@Peggy Sue - Marshall was that rare human being who truly was a nice guy.

While watching political events I find myself missing Molly Ivins (died in 2007) most dreadfully..

"It probably sounded better in its original German."- Molly Ivins on Pat Buchanan's speech at the #RNC in 1992 (#RNCinCLE is nothing new)
Giuliani and Trump sounded like Goebbels and Mussolini.

Amir is HAWT

July 22,2016 | Unregistered CommenterCraver

Hi Nick,you look great!

July 23,2016 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

one of the best jokes re: melania was her picture at the convention and the sentence "I invented post-its!"over it.

July 23,2016 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

Chris Hemsworth should do more comedies.

July 23,2016 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

I just feel the need to add to the Amir is hot thread!!!
