I just want to remind everyone that tonight will be the first 'Night with Fanning' for those interested in participating in the series I started last month (I honestly can't believe it's been a month already). Last month we spent five nights with the year 1956, and this month we are spending the week with my personal favorite child actor Elle Fanning. Now I'll be watching a movie of hers every night this week, starting tonight, and will be reviewing that film the following morning. So, tonight I'll be watching 'My Neighbor Totoro' yet again and then will post my review tomorrow. Now, these reviews are NOT going to be on Fanning herself (although she will factor into some of the reviews) but she is mainly the connective tissue to each of the features of the week. You may ask, how the hell is she connecting 'My Neighbor Totoro' to anything, since it was made in 1988 before she was even born. Well, she actually voices the youngest child in the English version of the film (which is the one I have) so it counts! Besides, I really, really want to review that movie for you guys (such a masterpiece).
Anyways, here is the breakdown of the week (review wise):
My Neighbor Totoro (9/2)
Ginger and Rosa (9/3)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (9/4)
Super 8 (9/6)
I hope that you all can comment and if you want to post your own reviews for these films on those dates on your blogs, send me a link and I will post a link on my page. I hope to make this a regular thing, so keep it in mind and try to play along!
