    Three Cheers for Noir Alley

    I love his intros and outros and I have seen a couple good movies on there I would not have checked out otherwise. I watch the late night one because I keep strange hours.

    September 2019: James Bond

    Agree. I am not personally super excited about this because I've seen all of the Bond movies I like a million times but I am still glad they are showing them. He's a big part of film history.
  3. I went to a screening a few years ago after seeing it many times. It was a great experience.

    [Poll] Your favorite decade for films??

    60's narrowly beats out the 50's for me. It was a very exciting time with all the restrictions of movies first coming down (sort of the case with the 50's as well to a lesser extent) and it just has a lot of my favorite movies. Was wondering if we were going to get any troll votes for the 1890's.
  6. I would selfishly focus on saving my own favorite movies with maybe a few important ones that aren't personal favorites like Battleship Potemkin.

    Recommend Underrated Romance Movies

    Yeah, I didn't mention that because they sort of had to gloss over it for the movie although there is still some sexual ambiguity. And Deborah Kerr's husband is definitely a closet case. I don't get too picky about genre distinctions. The the central relationship in the movie culminates in a romantic way so for me it is a romance movie.

    Your Three Favorite Actresses of All Time

    I didn't see anyone else saying Deborah Kerr so I thought I would give her a shoutout in addition to my definite top two.

    Recommend Underrated Romance Movies

    I first saw Tea and Sympathy with Deborah Kerr last summer and it immediately became one of my five or so favorite movies. A wonderful performance from Kerr (maybe the best of her distinguished career) and very well shot with good use of color from Vincent Minnelli. I found it tremendously moving and shattering. It's one of those movies where I'm surprised it could have made it past the Hays Code at the time given the treatment of adultery. It's coming on TCM late next month when they're having a Deborah Kerr mini-marathon one afternoon. It seems to be terribly underseen so hopefully some people check it out. Due to the controversy surrounding it I don't think it got much of a US release when it came out.

    Your Three Favorite Actresses of All Time

    Definitely Audrey and Katherine Hepburn. Maybe Deborah Kerr for the third spot.

    Classic Movie Night!

    Sounds like a good idea. I'm always interested in seeing how young kids respond to older media. As others have said you should probably check the schedule and be flexible about the times you watch the movies.

    Tom Clancy

    I love Clancy. Jack Ryan was a big part of my youth. RIP.

    Stranded on a desert isle...

    I wouldn't necessarily pick my five favorite movies here, I'll want to pick movies that are somewhat upbeat since I'll probably be sad and depressed about being stuck on an island.I'll also want to pick things that are very rewatchable. My five desert island movies- 1.2001-A Space Odyssey (my favorite movie and one I can watch again and again and find something new) 2.The Graduate (one of the funniest and most all around entertaining movies ever made) 3.The Apartment (an obvious funny and feel good pick) 4.Gone With the Wind (It never gets old, and it's so long that it'll be a great time killer) 5.Roman Holiday (probably the movie that has the most positive effect on my mood)
