"Begin Again" and IMHO the song that deserved the oscar

a fine film and my favorite of the year. It was directed by John Carney who brought us the great indy movie "Once". If you all remember this was the "movie of 2007. "Begin Again" was made for $8,000,000. Unheard of in this day and age.

It is a movie about a very strong woman and Keira Knightly stretches herself way more than "The Imitation game". She had too sing and she is not a singer. Go watch this movie and you will see why this song deserved the Oscar.

keira knightly- "Begin Again and The imitation game

I've seen both and keira is certainly more stretched in "Begin Again" where she had to sing. "Begin Again" is certainly my favorite movie of the year and is the work of John Carney of "Once" fame. It is too bad that these types of movies don't get consideration by the Oscars. The Oscars is a PR game and that is it. The Grand Budapest Hotel is only an average film.

If you haven't seen "Begin Again" is is worth it and it cost only $8,000,000 to make. Incredible in this day and age.

keira knightly- The Imitatation game and Begin again

i saw both movies(imitation game last night). She was better in Begin Again. Both movies are good but i liked begin Again more. Begin Again is the same director as "Once". Watch them both you won't be disappointed. Keira had to sing in Begin Again" talk about a stretch.

USPS- Incredible service match that fedex and UPS

I bought an item off of ebay and had it accidentally shipped to the wrong address. I freaked out and called USPS. They guided me to "intercept a package". This was a priority mail item and had tracking. I followed the package to Denver where i actually called the post office. The women at the post office answered the phone BEFORE business hours. She asked me where the package was going and my name.

She then went down to th driver and the package had not come upstairs yet. When it did the route person walked it upstairs and gave it to the supervisor whom then CALLED me took my address and the rerouted the package to me. Instead of getting it in 2 days i will get it in 4 days.

I probably could have let the system reroute it to me but i called and look what they did.

UPS and Fedex ground who have taken 5 days to get the package to me originally. God knows how long it woulld have taken it to finally get it to me and how much they would have charged.

You are right republicans Government can never do anything right. sarcasm

The electoral college- the greatest vote suppressor ever

What does a system say when the most important vote you can cast is deemed worthless. This is the beginning of disenfranchising the voter and it continues to the point until people give up. The two people most responsible for killing voting are Nixon and Reagan. one made all politicians crooks and the second made government the enemy.
