    You Watched TCM Where?

    Where is the strangest place you have ever watched TCM or classic movies in general? Have you ever watched it while intoxicated? I recently watched TCM (They were showing On Your Toes) while in the dentist chair getting a routine checkup! Anybody else have any weird TCM-watching experiences?

    What Are You Watching Now?

    Ball of Fire, for only the 2nd time, starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck! I'm so excited!

    Favorite Disney Shorts

    A couple of years ago, when I first joined this forum, somebody had posted a topic asking for people to list their top ten-twenty favorite Disney movies. Somebody, I think it was TomJH, listed their favorite Disney shorts (both cartoons and live action shorts). So I decided that I would create a forum topic where I would list my favorite shorts from the Disney Company with a miniature review for each of them, and anybody else who wanted to make their own opinions heard or make their own lists could do soo too. I look forward to seeing your lists and your thoughts. P.S.: It was JLewis.

    A Wrinkle in Time

    By the way, sorry for highjacking this A Wrinkle in Time thread. I just had a few things to get off of my chest concerning Lilo and Stitch.

    A Wrinkle in Time

    Yeah, but the reason that Nani was go exasperated with Lilo, and in turn Lilo was so “psychotic” around her sister was that both were demonstrating their respective feelings on their situation (their parents having just died). I didn’t have any siblings growing up, but I, like many other people could clearly see that their was a relatable sibling relationship at the heart of Lilo and Stitch. That’s what is and what should be the focus of the movie. Not the aliens. Maybe it’s misleading, but I’d rather have the movie that we got than a movie sold purely on alien sight gags. I think we have the TV show (and movie) My Favorite Martian for that!

    A Wrinkle in Time

    Oh, and also, I was going to theatres to see Disney movies at that time, including Treasure Planet which I still hold as an underrated gem in the animated Disney catalogue.

    A Wrinkle in Time

    Wow! You didn’t get the point of Lilo and Stitch, did you?
  8. JamesStewartFan95

    A Wrinkle in Time

    There certainly was a lot of rambling and buzzwords in that post EricJ. It seems like you have a lot of misplaced anger toward Disney, or more specifically, towards Lilo and Stitch.

    Rotten Apples

    Has anybody on here heard of the movie database website Rotten Apples? It's sort of like Rotten Tomatoes, but instead of reviewing and eating films, viewers can see which movies starred, were directed or written by, or were produced or executive produced by individuals accused of sexual assault or sexual abuse. If so, what are your opinions of the website and/or its content? Would you not watch a movie that was featured on this database?

    Mary Poppins Returns Teaser Trailer

    What ? ! No Oscar thread this year?? !

    I know you said you thought the rest were terrible, but I enjoyed the Latin flavor of the Remember Me song from DisneyPixar's Coco. I think it's great that there are more movies being made that explore the culture of Mexico, because it's a fascinating topic. I also liked the song that Surfjan Stevens sung from Call Me By Your Name.

    TCM Programming Challenge #38: Vacation Time!

Vacation Destination: Summertime in Paris! 2. Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Born to be Wild: A Tribute to the Biker Movie 3. Travel Companion: John Keating (from 1989's Dead Poets Society) 4.

Magic! And in the summertime, it’s simply beautiful! Sunday starts with a series of movies set in the City of Lights. Starting with Marcel Carné’s romantic epic masterpiece Les Enfants du Paradis, we journey through gay Paree with the likes of Fred Astaire, Marion Cotillard and even Bugs Bunny. Cotillard’s masterful performance as the tragic, yet triumphant chanteuse Edith Piaf in Olivier Dahan’s La Vie en Rose will make its debut on TCM as will Billy Crystal’s 1995 directorial debut, the rom-com Forget Paris. In the evening hours, Judy Garland stars in a family friendly double feature that includes the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz and the 1962 animated feature Gay Purr-ee. After a riotous Norman Jewison-directed episode of Judy Garland’s TV show co-starring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin from 1962, TCM’s Silent Sunday Nights brings us an eerie vision of the future with Fritz Lang’s landmark Metropolis from 1927. TCM Imports celebrates the best of Asian cinema from the 1950’s with a double feature of Satyajit Ray’s Pather Panchali and Akira Kurosawa’s 1950 epic Rashomon. Like a true nature’s child we were born, born to be wild! And so are the stars of these movies! Monday kicks off with a slate of films about life on the open road on a big black Harley Davidson motorcycle. Frequent TCM favorites such as Marlon Brando in The Wild One and Dennis Hopper’s counterculture classic Easy Rider from 1969 will be shown as will 1985’s Mask and the Charlie Chaplin-Mabel Normand silent short film Mabel at the Wheel from 1914. After an exciting look at Tupperware (did somebody say Match Your Mood), we salute the wonderfully talented Angela Lansbury, Jessica Fletcher herself. As Angela Lansbury was a huge star at MGM, most of these films will have been shown plenty on TCM, but I believe they are still worth watching particularly due to the presence of Angela Lansbury. Gaslight and The Reluctant Debutante are among the highlights, and underrated Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy vehicle State of the Union stands out due to Lansbury’s performance. Tuesday is Disney Day on TCM and we’re doubling down with two programming slates of Disney movies. The morning showcases films starring Disney voice actors. First Winnie the Pooh helps an allied battalion hold off the Germans in A Walk in the Sun. Then Timothy J. Mouse tries to stop Buster Keaton from stealing the woman he loves while Jiminy Cricket plays the ukulele in Edward Sedgwick’s Doughboys from 1930. The morning will also show off the serious acting skills of The Fairy Godmother, Colonel Hathi, J. Worthington Foulfellow, Maleficent, Ludwig von Drake and Baloo. In the afternoon, animators Andreas Deja and Floyd Norman join host Leonard Maltin for another iteration of Treasures from the Disney Vault. The animation legends talk about their times at the Disney Studios, Floyd during the transitional period and Andreas during the Disney Renaissance before showcasing another great lineup of Disney programming. This includes the premieres of The Snowball Express from 1972 and That Darn Cat! from 1965. Wednesday kicks off with a slate of my favorite films including the premiere of Richard Linklater’s rock and roll love letter to teenage abandonment Dazed and Confused and the high stepping and fashionable musical duo of The Music Man and An American in Paris. All of these films mentioned truly made me think more about the power of film and I feel they best represent my enjoyment of the cinematic media. It also gives me an excuse to watch Grease. In the evening, our special guest programmer is the well-respected John Keating, professor of literature at Welton Academy who has volunteered his time to give us a fascinating look into his favorite movies including his two most-loved John Wayne films. The professor shares his love of the cinema and poetry by introducing his favorite film about a teacher, 2002’s The Emperor’s Club which will be making its debut on TCM. He hopes you enjoy this time together. Thursday sees a slate of nostalgia summer movies including the 1993 baseball film The Sandlot, which will be making its long-awaited debut and is a favorite of mine from my childhood. In the evening, after a tribute to cartoon legend and icon Bugs Q. Bunny (I decided to give him a nickname), we wrap up an exciting Thursday with a salute to directorial debuts by such auteurs as Spike Lee and Steven Spielberg as well as the debut of one of my favorite offerings from Kermit and his friends, The Great Muppet Caper, the directorial debut of Muppets creator Jim Henson. On Friday, we switch to a salute to the films of 1949, a usually unheralded year when compared to the year that occurred a decade prior, but one that is not without its fair share of cinematic riches. These include Carol Reed’s suspense masterpiece The Third Man and Katharine Hepburn’s strong performance as Amanda Bonner in George Cukor’s comedy Adam’s Rib. In the evening we salute the four-legged canine set with a salute to dogs and their masters. We then hand it over to Ben Mankiewicz and special guest co-host, Academy Award-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan for a night of “Ladies” at the Movies. Four films with the word “lady” in the title including Ronan’s own film Lady Bird directed by Greta Gerwig. Friday is also the second most exciting of the days of the week because TCM will debut two films on the channel revolving around the subject of kids during the Cold War. These films, both oddly enough released in the year 1999, are the coming-of-age drama October Sky and the animated cult classic The Iron Giant. Saturday caps off the week with a series of films dealing with the contentious nature of good vs evil as personified by God and the devil. These include the 1941 classic The Devil and Daniel Webster starring Walter Huston as the Lord of Darkness and the comedy Oh God! which offers a very unique perspective about our perception of God. I’m going to Disneyworld! But I’m not the only one, as the afternoon showcase on Disney as the vacation capital of California would attest to. 40 Pounds of Trouble starring Tony Curtis and Saving Mr. Banks starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney himself will make their TCM debuts. After what I think is a long-awaited and deserved tribute to birthday boy and fellow Canuck Norman Jewison, TCM brings us one final guest host, acclaimed film director Robert Townsend to present a trio of films exploring the African-American experience during the 1980’s including the premieres of The Brother from Another Planet starring Joe Morton and directed by John Sayles and Townsend’s own Hollywood Shuffle, a hilarious satire of the film industry from 1987.
