I didn’t know a whole lot about ‘Hello, my Name is Doris‘, other than that Sally Field was starring in the film as true genuine free spirit of sorts, but when the director’s name flashed on the screen in the opening credits, I knew immediately I was in for a real treat. That director is Michael Showalter, who you might remember from ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘, ‘Stella‘, or ‘The Baxter‘, which was his last big directorial feature film some eleven years ago. ‘Hello, My Name is Doris‘ walks a fine line between the comedy and dramatic realm, but Showalter’s screenplay and directorial effort walks the line quite well, mixing some genuine and silly comedy with some intense dramatic moments.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Quentin Tarantino brings so many things to mind, first and foremost, a kick-ass movie with top notch acting. Such is what I hope continues for the director as he is said to be tackling his first true-crime project on the Manson Family murders.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are this generation’s Doris Day and Rock Hudson, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks – whatever you want to call them, they’re brilliant! Director David O. Russell has taken an obvious notice of this and continues to cast the pair in his films to rousing success. Then again, that’s a Russell standard, he finds actors he likes and he sticks with them. In this case, Robert DeNiro is another who has worked with him in the past that appears in ‘Joy‘. Under Russell’s direction, each of the actors has been nominated for an Academy Award for their performances, with JLaw winning for ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘.

Summer time means a million things to different people, but some things we can all agree on. Cook outs, swimming, catching lightning bugs, camping and baseball. It’s just as pure as mom’s apple pie and the star spangled banner and every spring, a new season swings into action and a new hope is born for your team to be a contender and play through October. The national past time has been the basis for a lot of movies and I’m making some sense of them all with my Top 10 favorite baseball movies.
