This is definitely not my favorite Annie. The whole production lacks the energy of the first Annie (first cast including Carol Burnett). But it is cleaner in performance. Nothing provocative as in the first Annie. It's more appropriate for kids. My daughter loves this version. So it gets 4 stars in my book.
This film always makes me laugh and cry at the end it's so satisfied and the ending is so amazing that a rich guy who is all business changes to have a heart not just of business, but of love. The actors are amazing except for the lady who is in charge of the orphanage should've been a small more mean and Daddy Warbucks should've been a small more stuck up. But other than that the film was great.
I enjoyed this ver of Annie. It's almost relentlessly heart-warming, but that's musicals for ya. The small girl is a amazing singer and charming. It's a beautiful close remake to the original. Kathy Bates is always good. A amazing casting choice for the poor orphanage know the story, so no true surprises. There wasn't any surprise cursing or unnecessary toilet ds should like this one. I honestly don't see why not.
In 1933, 11 years old Annie is in orphanage. The film opens, when we meet Annie looking out a window and an orphan can't sleep and wakes up the other girls. Annie thinks her parents out in the globe and reunite with them some day.But the other girls (execpt for one) does believe that Annie is an orphan. Even Ms. Hennigan who runs the joint doesn't belove Annie either. Annie was left with a note and half a locket. So that night Annie tries to run away but gets e other girls obtain waken up in the middle of the night just to clean the room. They start by washing the floor. It is a couple of weeks to Christmas! When the laundry man comes, the other girls obtain Annie with the the laudrey (without Ms. Hennigan seeing her). Ms. Hennigan doesn't allow any of the girls out of the Hennigan has the girls say "I love you Ms. Hennigan." But during the roll call the other girls tells Ms. Hennigan that Annie isn't there. Later on that day, a woman shows up at the orphanage for Oliver Warbuck's invition for a orphan to spend Christmas with him. Warbucks is a billonaire.And Annie is the orphan invited to spend christmas with Oliver Warbucks. Oliver aslo invites the president of the United States, Franklin Roosevelt for Christmas dinner. (Remember it is 1933). The excellent time to this film is Christmas time. Or close to Christmas.
I totally love this ver of Annie. It has unbelievable energy, brilliant acting by all the actors, the melody is fabulous and what I really love about it is Warbucks is portrayed as being much kinder and gentle instead of that stern, intimidating creature that goes around yelling at people, the method Albert Finney portrayed him in the 1982 film.Wonderfully done!
I love this ver of “Annie”, especially because Kathy Bates plays in it. Kathy is one of my all time favorite actors. However, that being said, I do have to say I love the original “Annie” best, with Carol Burnett, Albert Finney and Bernadette Peters, it’s my favorite and I think always will be.
Of the various film versions of Annie, this one is my favorite. The oldest one is a small "Rough," and can be somewhat embarrassing for young audiences in certain places. I did not see the fresh version, but I heard that the singing was not strong. The characters in this ver have amazing voices, and the acting and overall performance is excellent.
the android game is good. story quite catchy. but the problem, most irritating of all- AD!! i don't hav issue with ads generally. I know they are fund raisers. But for this android game , unlike any other, shows ads even when the android game is not on. highly irritating. please present ads only when the android game is in play. maybe i am doing something necessary and an ad pops up. how freaking is that!!
Given my title you may be wondering why 3 stars. I gave the application 3 stars because you can't see the screenshot of the apps on the application annie application as oppose to on the www service where you can. If you can create it so the we can see the screenshots, I will return to give you 5 stars.
I purchased the book to read during vacation, thinking it was a so-so novel; I had never read anything of S. Barry before; and, it was at a very affordable from Amazon. After a slow begin - since I was busy getting used to my fresh vacation environment - I could not place my Kindle down, and read almost for a whole night! S. Barry has such a nice method describing life in that era in Ireland and also about the method Anne and her cousin grow older. I am older than the women in the book, but when growing old I never thought about the method it comes. We all with it, but Anne, being a person "with a hump" and never married, always taking care of others, has worries about not having a roof over her head. All easy facts and hardships of life are described thoughtfully and tenderly by a masterful author.
No author I know can write like Sebastian Barry, every one of his books a triumph of English literature. You may not like the characters or what they do but you will never be disappointed by how the stories are written. The narrator, here, Annie is remarkably self effacing yet, well meaning though she may think she is, is actually astonishingly unattractive as a person, particularly towards the one person she should not be, Sarah. Rural life in 50's Ireland was harsh and cruel for those whose peasant livelihoods meant that there was small to their globe beyond the broken walls of their little farms. Sebastian Barry takes you there, giving the reader a moving and raw insight into their intense lives, which is so easily unbalanced with the arrival of others in this instance, two kids and Billy. Just brilliant
I consider Barry to be one of the finest (perhaps the finest) writer working in English. He has spun an epic tale about a family living in a culture in turmoil (Ireland in the early 20th century) which compares favorably to what Faulkner did in American literature. The difference, for me, is that Barry is a much more lyrical writer and his books have a shimmering beauty seldom found in Faulkner.
well it's kind of a cool android game but it's so slow it gets boring, also the notifications are somewhat annoying as I will have 3 notifications from Annie then when I begin the app..it still isn't ready for next part. I like the idea of this game...but it loses its charm waiting hours for 5 minutes of video test
amazing so far, I will modernize when finished.....Spoiler Warning when it switches characters during her nightmare it is very confusing and frankly ruined it for me. Having to answer as the poor guy was not only a story assassin but also was unnecessary for the story line and ruined the experience. The story as a whole is amazing if you take that part out.
Interesting, it's what is basically a text-based adventure. It's kind of fun, but a lot of choices seem to end in a forced happening that happens regardless. Also if you turn on Push notifications it will SPAM you, even while you arr waiting for Annie to come online (and you can't play.)
This was one of my favorite books as a child. I even dressed up as Annie for a popular person speech in high school because of how I grew up to love Annie from reading this book! I was introduced to this book as a book and cassette combo from the library as a child. The audio ver is highly entertaining with an perfect reader and lively music. I know that had a lot to do with me loving this book, but even without I think the sensationalism and pictures are still enough to create this an entertaining book on it's own. I bought this book because I found the audio again a lot of years later and I'm going to share this book with my daughter (accompanied with the audio) for her to grow up with like I did. I am confident this will become a favorite of hers as well!On further research in high school for my speech, I learned that this book stretches the real story a little, in case you wondered. :) I still love it!
Barry leaves you feeling that you have breathed the air of Ireland, heard the hens, touched the eggs,shivered in the cold. In a easy fashion, he delves deeply into the characters. I thought it was written by a woman until half method through I noticed the author's name. It's unusual for a male writer to feature female characters with such sensitivity. The plot develops slowly but intently until you can't place it down or can't wait to obtain back to reading it. It's sensuous, exciting, interesting, old world, fresh globe and deeply private all at the same time. Anyone who enjoys amazing literature will treasure this small book.
