THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN (2019): New Trailer From Natalie Dormer, Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Steve Coogan…

From director Farhad Safinia; starring Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Steve Coogan and Natalie Dormer, The Professor And The Madman is the origin story of the principal historical dictionary of the English language, the Oxford English Dictionary.

After Professor James Murray started the dictionary in the mid 19th century, he soon received more than 10,000 entries from Dr. William Minor. A man who happened to be a patient at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum…

In all my years of appreciating the beauty of the English language, not once have I given a single thought to the founding of the English Dictionary. As a fan of words I sure hope this one is a tale even more interesting than this trailer suggests.

My fingers are also crossed that all the logophiles and lexicographers will have a good time.

Jennifer Ehle, Ioan Gruffudd, Jeremy Irvine, Aidan McArdle, Brendan Patricks, David Crowley and Kieran O’Reilly also star.

THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (2013): Inspiration For Living

Walter Mitty is a man who has numerous vivid day dreams about everything he wishes he could be at a given moment but never is.

Directed by funny man, Ben Stiller, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty takes you along on a journey that leads to a point where Walter, as the movie poster suggests, stops dreaming and starts living.

This is definitely an entertaining watch and becomes most interesting and fun from the moment Walter meets the bearded and intoxicated giant (one of my favourite characters). It makes sense that the film becomes very interesting at this point because it’s soon after Walter decides to be adventurous, brave and start living.

For those who realise / feel like they haven’t done much that’s considered noteworthy and want to change that, Stiller’s movie is great inspiration to formulate a plan and take action

You’ll laugh as you watch this fun adventure / drama with several humorous characters to enjoy particularly my personal favourite, the bearded and intoxicated giant.

One of my own personal day (and night) dreams was about going to New York. I’ve been forever curious, so finally  making that particular day – and night dream come true was super.

Happy The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 🙂
