    Classic movies. All good and critically reknown movies in fact. Love music, sports, etc. thinking about becoming a film critic or the sort, starting film/tv reviews in future
  1. The Case of the Howling Dog (1934)

    The reason I put this in "Pre-Code" is because the film came out in 1934. But on Wiki, it doesn't say it's a pre-Code film. But I decided to put it here anyway because no other categories seemed to fit at first glance; if it needs to be moved to another genre, that's fine. So this black & white 1934 film stars Warren William and Mary Astor, and was directed by Alan Crosland. I won't completely spoil it, but basically it's one of the early "Perry Mason films" (actually, the earliest, according to Wiki.) It's given 3 1/2 stars on IMdb. Although on the film description on my TV, it showed 2 stars. Either way, I agree it's not a spectacular movie. My mom and I were confused from just about beginning to end; we learned in the end that Perry Mason apparently knew that his client, Besse, had killed her husband and dog - but in self defense. That's all the spoilers I'm giving. Yeah, this was much different than the T.V. series most know about. Personally, I liked the Perry Mason in this film - played by Warren William - better than the Raymond Burr-played Perry Mason. Probably due to the fact that while this man was more strict and formal (film is from 1934), he also seemed more relatable and not so much like a superhero as in the TV series who can never lose a case and seem cocky all the time. Some of the acting was meh and one inconsistency I noticed: the maid who works for the man Mason was originally supposed to work with on a will was supposedly almost deaf. Yet when Perry Mason rang the doorbell, she answered pretty quickly. Later, when another man banged on the door, she never answered, if she was even there. So was she in kahoot with the guilty party? The whole film was a bit confusing. I've yet to see the other Perry Mason films, but I'll go ahead and rate this film a 6/10.
  2. Night of the Living Dead (1968)

    I think I've seen this movie before, definitely heard of it. Legendary it is, I will have to see it again!
  3. Shadow Of A Doubt (1943)

    According to Robert this was Hitchcock's favorite film. It may not be the most remembered or liked of his many films, but I think it's a true masterpiece. Saw this maybe for the first time last night, at 8, before Psycho. I couldn't find another thread about this movie here, and this is the first thread I've posted. I loved the movie, and though I don't want to spoil it, but the end is just grand. The movie is set in a "small town", not so small now, in a beautiful old home. You might have recognized Clarence the angel as the father..he plays trivial parts in many movies around that time. Hope you watched this film, or hear about it, because it's very suspenseful and one of my all time favorites! Joseph Cotten is outstanding in this film.
  4. PSYCHO

    As far as I remember I watched Psycho for the first time last night and saw THE FULL MOVIE even though my dad wanted me to go to sleep - it was eastern time. I saw Shadow Of A Doubt first, and boy was that a good movie. But anyway Psycho is definitely a true 'cult classic' and I wish I could see Vertigo this Thursday. TCM showing a lot of big movies recently, with Giant next Saturday on the Essentials. I instantly fell in love with Psycho, a true masterpiece by Hitchcock. It's a horror movie as Robert said, but if you don't like horror films that's good because the movie only has two 'very gory' scenes. Great camera movement in both of those and then in the basement the old woman turns and the rest is legend.
  5. "Nowhere To Go"

    I did my research and it seems like an interesting movie. As far as I know, I have never seen it before. Wish I could be able to see it Thursday!
  6. The Magnificent Seven

    I saw some parts of the movie, and liked it. My dad was less impressed Great actors in it too.
  7. Any poster collectors?

    I don't have any collections myself, but I bet in antique stores and online you could buy some rare memoirbilia. In one antique store I saw an antique of Dick Tracy!
  8. Bette Davis

    All About Eve is one of the movies I remember most from her...great movie, one of the best of all time in fact.
  9. Maureen O'Hara

    McLintock! and Miracle On 34th Street I've seen numerous times, and Maureen O'Hara is stunning in both of them! The Quiet Man is exceptional too..Maureen has that certain look about her that makes her stand out if you know what I mean...
  10. Dinner @ 8, what a cast!

    If it's coming on TCM this month I won't be able to see it...very simple tv we have. I'm sure I've seen the movie at some point in my many years of watching TCM periodically, but I don't remember much from it. The cast does stand out...especially the two Barrymores and Jean Harlow. PS: It's an essential, is it not? Came on earlier this evening (or last night, depending on your perspective.) I always enjoy seeing the essentials with Drew, I'm sure she loved this one with her own family in it. My dad doesn't like movies made after 1964 much but I am not so close-minded. This is a classic movie though!
