Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for January 16, 2022 is: sanguine • SANG-gwin • adjective Sanguine means "confidently optimistic." // The young CEO is sanguine about the struggling company's future. See the entry > Examples: "Mystifyingly, the Tony-nominated actress was never invited to audition for the 2020 Broadway revival of … 'West Side Story.' But given the way things worked out, [Ariana DeBose]—who was cast in Spielberg's movie shortly afterward—is pretty sanguine about the slight. 'I think everything happens for a reason,' she says. 'That was not my blessing. That was somebody else's blessing.'" — Sara Stewart, The New York Post, 8 Dec. 2021 Did you know? If you're the sort of cheery soul who always looks on the bright side no matter what happens, you have a sanguine personality. Sanguine is the name of one of the temperaments that ancient and medieval scholars believed was caused by an abundance of one of the four humors. It comes from sanguineus—Latin for "of or relating to blood" or "bloody"—and over centuries has had meanings ranging from "bloodthirsty" and "bloodred" to "confidently optimistic."

Host Geri Cole kicks off a new year, and a new season of OnWriting, in conversation with celebrated screenwriter, playwright, and author Tony Kushner—the screenwriter behind the recent adaptation of WEST SIDE STORY. Geri and Tony discuss the process of adapting one of the most famous musicals of all time, how in-depth research about New York's West Side added historical context and deeper meaning to the script, and how even the likes Tony Kushner get anxious looking at a blank page. Tony Kushner is a celebrated playwright, author, and screenwriter who is perhaps best known for writing the acclaimed play Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes—and its TV miniseries adaptation—as well as for his collaborations with Steven Spielberg as screenwriter for MUNICH and LINCOLN, both of which earned him Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay. Angels in America earned Tony both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play in 1993, and he received Emmy and Writers Guild Awards for its onscreen adaptation. He also received the National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama in 2013. His latest screenplay (and most recent collaboration with Spielberg) is the musical romantic period drama WEST SIDE STORY. The film—based on the 1957 stage musical and a follow-up of the acclaimed 1961 film adaptation—explores forbidden love and the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds, as they explore the ever-shifting (and never-changing) landscape of New York. WEST SIDE STORY was released in December 2021 and is now showing in theaters. --- Before it was a podcast, OnWriting was a print publication. Check out OnWriting: The Print Archives.

Why would Steven Spielberg want to make a straightforward remake of the 1961 Best Picture-winning musical West Side Story? And could such a musical remake be good in the year 2021? The Lodgecast is joined by some magical musical sisters as we try to answer the many questions we had about Spielberg's West Side Story (2021). The Jets face off against the Sharks in Manhattan's West Side, and the movie contains all the classic musical hits written by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim. The movie stars Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler, Ariana DeBose, David Alvarez, and Mike Faist. And 90-year-old actress Rita Moreno returns in a new supporting role! As with almost all modern musicals this move was a box office bomb!

You might need a drink - or some other outlet - to get through tonight's episode, as World War II Movie Night tackles Steven Spielberg's forgotten WWII comedy, 1979's "1941". Spielberg was reportedly fraught with uncertainty in his first try at comedy, so he threw every kind of joke into "1941," including many he'd rather you forget. Citizens of the West Coast are worried that after Pearl Harbor they're next, which results in ever manner of paranoid, war-crazy behavior. Of course, a Japanese sub looking to destroy 'Hollywood' somewhat justifies their fears, as both John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd do their things as a crazed fighter pilot and fast-talking, zealous tank commander, respectively... Asides include Bob Woodward, the Battle of Los Angeles, and the decadent lifestyles of movie people in the 70s/early 80s.  Drop us a line at worldwartwomovienight@gmail.com Check out our Twitter at http://twitter.com/WWIIMovieNight Consider donating at https://www.patreon.com/WorldWarTwoMovieNight

For our final Hot Date of 2021, we chose Putney Swope, written and directed by Robert Downey Sr.  As an indictment of corporate greed, the advertising business and race, the film was Downey's reaction to working for years in a production company whose main client was a powerful ad agency.  There were no takers for the movie from the major studios so Downey turned to independent producer and distributor Don Rugoff, who placed the film in his art houses across the country and turned it into a major underground hit.   Dan and Vicky discuss the film, along with lots of recently seen including Sex and the City follow up And Just Like That, NBC's Annie Live, Disney's Encanto, House of Gucci, Being the Ricardos, 1992's Glengarry Glen Ross, 1974's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Spielberg's West Side Story, and a bunch of Hammer horror.  Ring in the New Year with Hot Date 141: Putney Swope and leave us some feedback or a star rating.  hotdatepod.com

That's right... We're not done with the 1957 Broadway classic West Side Story! Today in this very special holiday bonus episode, we're talking about the 2021 Steven Spielberg adaptation. We talk about: - Spielberg's style and the political & sociological context that he and screenwriter Tony Kushner bring to the original material - Shifts in religious imagery from 1961 to 2021 - and how the film shifts the setting of the story's religious/liturgical moments - How the film raises the stakes of Tony & Maria's love by paying deeper attention to the political & racial context of the late 50s - A deeper and more nuanced take on Maria & Anita and the ways they navigate white society - Valentina, the new character created by Kushner and Spielberg - and what it means to have Rita Moreno's presence in the film - The phenomenon of midrash in the Jewish exegetical tradition and how this film riffs on the complications & tensions inherent in the original material - The theological question of whether it's true that when “love comes on so strong, there is no right or wrong” – and Maria as a (literal!) Marian figure   You'll hear tracks from the 2021 Film Soundtrack: - David Alvarez and the Sharks singing “La Borinquena”. - Gustavo Dudamel leading players from the New York and LA Philharmonics in “Mambo” from the Dance at the Gym - Ansel Elgorty and Rachel Zegler singing “One Hand, One Heart” - Rachel Zegler, Ana Isabelle, Ilda Mason, Annelise Cepero, Jamila Velazquez, Andrea Burns, Tanairi Sade Vazquez & Yassmin Alers singing “I Feel Pretty” - Ariana DeBose and Rachel Zegler singing “A Boy Like That/I Have A Love” - Rita Moreno singing “Somewhere”   Continue the conversation with Peter (@pgeinvan) and Nathan (@nathan_lerud) on Twitter, and follow the Gospel of Musical Theatre on Instagram or Twitter @gospelofmt.

Synopsis Any movie buff knows that composer John Williams is the usual choice for director Steven Spielberg's movies. But for “The Color Purple,” which was released on today's date in 1985, Spielberg turned to jazz great and master orchestrator Quincy Jones. “The Color Purple” was based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker that tells the story of a young African-American girl named Celie Harris, graphically depicting the trauma of a young African-American woman during the early 20th century.  Spielberg cast Whoopi Goldberg –  better-known back then for stand-up comedy – in the intensely dramatic role of Celie.For Spielberg, it was a movie without dazzling special effects or space aliens; for Jones, who had just finished producing Michael Jackson's “Thriller,” working on “The Color Purple” was, as he put it, “An amazing experience … the biggest of my life.”Whoopi Goldberg was nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Actress” – Quincy Jones, for both “Best Original Score” and “Best Original Song.” Neither Goldberg or Jones won an Oscar, but Quincy Jones says he felt honored to participate in a project that despite the many warnings of nay-sayers he had absolute faith in, inspired by the passion of all those involved in its making, Music Played in Today's Program Quincy Jones (b. 1933) – The Color Purple: Main Theme (Itzhak Perlman, violin; Pittsburgh Symphony; John Williams, cond.)

The guys come back for one of the all time classic film, Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park. They discuss the adaptation from the Michael Crichton book and the massive differences between it and the movie. Joe reveals how close this was to being a James Cameron movie and who he had planned to use in the film and how Jurassic Park caused the delay in the creation of E.R. They talk about Steven Spielberg being the highest paid Director of all time thanks to this movie. They reimagine the Jurassic Park ride at Universal and Joe explains the evolution from Stop Motion Animation to CG to make the film. Joe reveals the biggest lie in the movie and how a scientific discover made it sort of true. They discuss some of the strangest Directing decisions by Spielberg and settle the debate between who is better, Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. They place Sam Neill into the best place for him in Lord of the Rings and scrutinize the CG and see how well it has aged after all these years. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DISCORD - https://discord.gg/a6UEWh9zft PODCAST - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/miscast-commentary/id1145697204 WEBSITE - http://www.miscastcommentary.com/ TWITTER - https://twitter.com/miscastpodcast TIK TOK - https://www.tiktok.com/@miscastcommentary FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/miscastcommentary TEEPUBLIC - https://www.teepublic.com/stores/miscast-commentary?ref_id=7636 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow Joe!

When it was announced that Steven Spielberg was mounting a new film adaptation of the classic Broadway musical WEST SIDE STORY, it was entirely reasonable to ask, "Why?" Why a new film adaptation and why Spielberg. The 1961 "West Side," directed by Robert Wise, was a Best Picture-winner and is regarded as one of the great movie musicals of all time. Also? Spielberg has never directed a musical. And yet, as revered as that 1961 adaptation is, it is not without its faults, notably the casting of white actors as Latinx characters and a pair of romantic leads (Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer) who don't sing and are arguably the weakest members of an otherwise ace cast. Adam and Josh make the case that with his thrilling new adaptation, Spielberg more than answers the why, without necessarily fixing all of the earlier film's weaknesses. Plus, a review of Sean Baker's latest, RED ROCKET, which has Simon Rex's former adult film star making an ignominious return to his Texas hometown. 0:00 - Billboard 1:06 - Review: "West Side Story" "Cool" ("West Side Story," Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) 41:44 - Next Week / Notes 47:22 - Polls 57:02 - Review: "Red Rocket" 1:14:36 - Outro  Learn more about your ad choices.
