Apple Honors Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today Apple's website has a full page memorial to Martin Luther King, Jr. And, in honor of his birthday, Tony and I are going to see Selma. I love historical movies, and I'm sure this one won't disappoint.
UPDATE: We saw the movie. We arrived 5 minutes late, but fortunately the movie hadn't started, although we had to sit in the front row. I don't believe I ever sat in the front row before, but this is one movie it didn't matter. I was mesmerized. My eyes were watery during several scenes. It's only January, but I can't imagine there will be a better movie released in 2015. If there is, I will note it in this blog.
David Oyelowo should have been nominated for an Oscar, in my opinion. Selma should win as Best Picture. There was some controversy about the movie having inaccuracies about Lyndon Johnson. Maybe some of their conversations weren't accurate, but in the end Johnson came though with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and in the State of the Union he said, "We shall overcome." In the movie's ending credits it says: This is not a documentary. But it was a powerful historical movie.
