Entertainment -- Get the Scoop on Movies, TV, Actors

Updated on September 26, 2014

Movies, Television, Actors -- Yeah, I Love Them All!

Are you a big fan of movies and TV as entertainment? Me too. I can while away hours watching television and movies. I'm easily entertained, except when something I'm not interested in is on. I enjoy comedies, dramas, thrillers, and reality shows. Hold the sci-fi and horror please.

The following articles are about movies and TV and the actors that I like. Let me know what movies, television shows, and actors you like to watch. And thanks for looking!

And I think Tiny Tears is a movie star in her own right.

Movie Stars! Articles by Peggy Hazelwood

When I was little, I used to think movie stars were superhuman, that they didn't have to do mundane things like cook or brush their teeth or even go to the bathroom. Then I grew up and realized their lives are just as messed up as mine. Usually even more so.

Not to be deterred, I love to find out about actors' lives and research their private and professional stories. So, here are a few of the articles I've written about some favorite actors.

James Garner: All American Actor

Movies About Writers' Lives

The following article, Movies About Writers, brings my love of finding out more about a writer (just like I enjoy learning more about actors) to life by getting to watch movies about real actors real lives!

Movies That Were Books First

Do you love to read a book then watch the movie it's based on? Me too! These great movies were books first.

One of my favorite things to do is to read the book then watch the movie, preferably finishing the book and then watching the movie in the same day!

I have to admit I didn't read the book About Schmidt but I loved the movie. Later I read one of the later Schmidt books and enjoyed it knowing a little about Schmidt from the movie.

I think Carol Burnett is a genius. I loved her show and think it is a classic that will stand the test of time for pure hilarious comedy!

 

Television, TV, The Boob Tube - Whatever You Call It, I Love It!

      @Pam Irie: I don't think I've seen "Tender Mercies," but I do remember a spoof of it that Martin Short did (I love Martin Short) and that sort of ruined watching the real thing for me.

      I was so excited to see you listed "Lonesome Dove" as your favorite Robert Duvall movie. It's also my favorite of his, however, I would have added "Tender Mercies" to that list. :)
