I am about to share a quirky thing about Mother Rabbit...
I will not leave my theater seat until every last credit has run on the big screen. I enjoy this private "space" to absorb the movie I have just enjoyed. But more importantly, I feel like I am thanking and honoring the people who labored to make the production a reality by quietly viewing the names on the screen. It is mind boggling to grasp what a team effort a movie production is.
AND there are often surprises and sweet somethings hidden in the credits for those who wait. Sometimes there is even an additional movie clip that comes on after the credits run, leaking a hint about a possible sequel to follow. Sometimes I have been the only one in the theater (with Mike) to see it!
At the very end of the credits for Les Miserables, director Tom Hooper thanked his parents and grandparents (by name in small letters) for introducing him to musicals. How marvelous.
Next time you go to the movies, stay for the credits. It can be a sweet treat.
After coming home from the theater last night, I pulled out my 'favorite movies of all time list' because I wanted to add to it. Les Miserables is definitely joining the list. If you have not already seen it, I would recommend you make a plan to view this cinematic masterpiece while it is still in the theaters. I saw Les Mis on Broadway in NY and I can safely say that in my humble opinion this production was 1000 times better. (I know that I am comparing apples and oranges, but this story deserves the grandeur that the cinema can provide.)
In the spirit of movie favorites, I would like to present my TOP 40. I would encourage you to create a list for yourself. When I moved into my new office space this past year, I made "favorite things" a theme to surround myself with... and included movie favorites on my shelves. I enjoy having them close by. Somehow they seem to exude warmth, comfort, excitement and sweetness. Please note that my movie favorites are not in a particular order. Les Miserables will be added when I create the TOP 50 list.
I started Mother Rabbit Says blog as a place to share my motherly advice for my bunnies who have left the nest... spoonfuls of wisdom that I have heard myself say again and again, which they possibly need to hear again. I love that I now have a bunny following bigger than my three girls and our wonderful blended family. This is fun.
Now I am blogging about our house renovation and Mike's cancer journey too.
