Date Night. Smaldone Style.

Skip & Donna 1

So here’s the Smaldone challenge at Oscar time.  Skip draws up a game plan for himself and his wife, Donna, to see every single movie in the major awards categories!!
They do this year after year so that they are able to fairly vote for their Oscar picks.

They graciously let us in on the Oscar action this year, inviting us to take in There Will Be Blood.  What an amazing performance by Daniel Day Lewis. I overheard a guy sitting in the booth behind me in The Yellow Brick Bank in Shepherdstown, WV refer to Lewis as, “the best new actor since Russell Crowe.” That’s what you get for being choosy accepting acting roles.  
T.B.W.B. was a riveting movie . . . the only drawback was the group of ladies that sat behind us . . . they were on a girls’ night out and didn’t get the memo that the movie wasn’t a comedy.  Do you think, “You’re just a baby in a basket” . . . is . . . funny? Gotta see the movie to get it.
Great movie. See it. We did and loved it.
