  1. What Are You Watching Now?

    Working my way through Hitchcock's "Rear Window" (1954). It's literally been on my list for about 2 years now. I guess I was just never in the mood to watch it until now.
  2. I Just Watched...

    THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (1994) This has been on my list for forever now, and I'm glad I finally got the chance to watch it this evening. I liked Stephen King's other prison picture, "The Green Mile," so I figured I'd enjoy this one, and I was right. I think I still like "Green Mile" better, but this one definitely still captured my attention and managed to hold it. This one again deals with the corrupt prison environment of the early/mid 20th century. While we're on the subject of degenerates, I'd like to nominate the Warden of this dang prison for a shot to outrun my pitchfork (I know this is a different thread but I felt it was relevant here). What a heel (TCM won't allow a stronger string of words).
  3. The Fred to her/his Ginger

    My favorite Hepburn/Grant pairing is "Bringing up Baby" (1938). It's my opinion that this film is the height of screwball (or slapstick, whatever you want to call it) movies. It's one I can watch over and over (and have).
  4. The Fred to her/his Ginger

    What are some of your favorite on-screen partnerships? Can be from any genre or decade. I, for one, am a fan of William Powell & Myrna Loy. I adore them together. Their chemistry was fantastic; they played off each other very well. I also would say I like Tyrone Power and Gene Tierney together, but shouldn't it be a crime for a couple that pretty to be shown together on the screen?
  5. Same Movie, Different Title

    I don't know if this counts, but The Sound of Music (1965) was known as "La Novicia Rebelde," which translates to something along the lines of "the rebel novice" which doesn't exactly tell you what the movie is really about. The title leads you to think this movie is about some kind of war... oh, wait...
  6. Somehow Or Other, I'LL SURVIVE Jerks Like These

    I think sometimes you have to learn people's preferences. I usually will watch movies by myself because people around me aren't interested in some of the types of films I enjoy watching. I have gotten some of my friends interested in some of the older movie musicals and old movies, in general, which is always great. I just think it all comes down to the fact that people are definitely very different and their film tastes differ as well. Although, it can be annoying when people have no imagination whatsoever, and seem to think that movies are a waste of time, or are unbelievable. That's the point. Movies are supposed to distract people from the issues in the real world. You're not supposed to overthink films or take them seriously, unless you're watching a documentary. "I don't take movies seriously, and anyone who does is in for a headache." -Bette Davis
  7. What Are You Watching Now?

    Gosh, I remember watching both of these films and being left completely shocked at these 2 heartless women's actions. I mean, Davis' Regina was motivated ultimately by money. Her husband told her that he was leaving basically everything to their daughter. Meanwhile, Tierney's Ellen was motivated by her obsessive love for her husband (I guess both characters' husbands are involved in some way or other). Ellen was extremely jealous of anyone else who managed to capture her husband's attention/affection, and wished them out of the way so she would be his sole focus.
  8. Who would you marry?

    CARY GRANT Me and thousands of other women, right? haha
  9. I Just Watched...

    ZODIAC (2007) starring Robert Downey, Jr., Jake Gyllenhaal, and Mark Ruffalo. I stumbled upon this movie purely by accident (meaning I wasn't looking for it when I logged onto Netflix the other day). I am interested in true crime stories, and obviously the Zodiac was one of the more prolific American degenerates in the 20th century. I am fascinated by the mental aspect of homicides (that is to say, the psychological piece). It fascinates me just how complex a machine the human brain is, and how, if provoked, it can suffer a snap/fracture, and begin to operate outside "normal" standards. That being said, I didn't enjoy this movie as much as I had anticipated. It started off fairly promising, but as the movie traveled on, unfortunately my brain and attention span did not travel on with it. It kind of reminded me of the film "JFK," in the sense that both of these films could have potentially prospered from a shorter running time. Source: Netflix; 2.5/5
  10. Adam's Rib.

    Thanks for reminding me about this film. It's been a hot minute since I've actually watched this. I'm thinking a good 4.5 years. I'll have to check it out from the library this weekend.
  11. What Are You Watching Now?

    About to begin Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Norma Rae (Sally Field).
  12. Christmas movies you'd like (or dread) to see.

    Finally someone else who thinks Andrew Lloyd Webber is overrated. Love Never Dies is literally "phan-fiction" on crack. And don't even get me started on the fact that this man had the audacity to write a musical version of that Jack Black "masterpiece," "School of Rock." Does he just not even care anymore? Or did he ever care, for that matter? Not to mention, there are several individuals who believe he is a borderline plagiarist. I mean, the vamp of the "Phantom of the Opera" title song is almost identical to that of Pink Floyd's 1971 hit, "Echoes."
  13. What Are You Watching Now?

    OF MICE AND MEN (1992) I've read the novel, and was interested in watching the film (yes, I know there's a 1930's version). I figure maybe I'll watch both versions to compare.
  14. AMADEUS! ROCK ME, AMADEUS!

    I remember watching this in 8th grade when my music teacher showed it to the class. I agree with Beth; not my favorite. I'm surprised I and my classmates sat through it at 13 years old.
  15. I Just Watched...

    9 TO 5 (1980) Starring Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin, & Dabney Coleman This is a re-watch; I was in the mood to watch this again for some reason.
