A note to my readers (and some beef jerky time)

I just wanted to thank each and every one of you, dear readers. You made my 2009 much brighter, and it makes me happy to know that my brand of nostalgia and cinema lovin' can be shared with others with likewise open heart and mind. You all rock. I sign off 2009 with a nod to 1983 and one of my absolute favorites of all time. A movie that makes me happy, and can watch at any given time... I don't think it's fair to sum up the genius of Trading Places with a bunch of words on a screen. Just watch the film and you'll laugh. MERRY NEW YEAR!!!

Cinema, happy new year to you too man, your blog is always a fun read. Now I gotta go and rent Trading Places, which I have never seen on its entirety! Shame on me I know. But hey, at least I have Spies Like Us in my collection and Dragnet, two of Dan Akroyds best films!

Trading Places' is one of the best movies and one of the best comedies that I have had the privilege of viewing and almost every aspect of this movie is done to the highest excellence and the highest quality. I have always considered that some of the most entertaining and enjoyable movies came out during the 1980s and `Trading Places' definitely falls within this category.
Everything is a success with this movie –the high quality of acting from both the main actors and the supporting cast, the wonderful humour and engaging dialogue contained within the script, the development of the plot, the music selection provided for the various scenes and even the atmosphere and scenery contained in the movie. Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd are particularly outstanding in their various roles –and keep the excellent performances up in their reversal of roles. Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche and Denham Elliot also provide their characters with a great amount of depth and dimension and make what would have already been a wonderful comedy success even more entertaining. The only very minor criticism is that Jamie Lee Curtis is meant to portray a prostitute in this movie. Jamie Lee Curtis is much too high quality of an actress for the role of a prostitute and I think if the emphasis had been on her character's profession it would have weakened her contribution to the movie. But thankfully the writers and producers recognized that she shouldn't be portrayed in a one-dimensional role and her truly wonderful and highly excellent acting abilities shone through during the whole movie. consulta medico pediatra medico doctor dermatologo veterinario veterinario psychologist consulta abogado abogado abogado abogado abogado psicologo doctor psicologo abogado abogado The script flowed naturally and had an edge to it that made it both entertaining and intriguing. Even though the storyline and outcome was slightly predictable, the scriptwriters succeeded in keeping you interested and keeping you entertained as the sequence of events unfolded. The humour contained in the movie is genuinely entertaining and doesn't sound forced or strained in the same way that it does in some other movies. Dan Ackroyd and Eddie Murphy make a thoroughly wonderful team and I hope they someday consider doing another movie together. I think the 1980s marked the high point of Eddie Murphy's career and this was one of the movies that cemented his reputation as a great comedian.
I couldn't recommend this movie highly enough. A truly great comedy masterpiece and classic.
