  1. What Are You Watching Now?

    Just like in THE MUSIC MAN (1962). Shirley Jones plays a 20-something woman with young Ron Howard (he was 8 when the movie was released) as a little brother, and Pert Kelton played their mother (she was 55 at the release of the film). It really didn't make sense to me when I first watched it, and it still doesn't. While we're on the subject of older women with tiny children (there's nothing wrong with that, believe me), I have to agree about Mrs. Potts and Chip in the animated "Beauty and the Beast." She has white hair, and is clearly meant to be "past her prime," yet she has a 7 yr old son. Not to mention all of Chip's teacup siblings; there's gotta be at least 15 more of the little tykes... Now that I think of it, maybe Mrs. Potts in the animated film is an older woman who has taken young orphans into the castle to care for or something. But they essentially didn't show any other teacups in the recent remake.
  2. I Just Watched...

    CORALINE (2009) for the 7th time in 6 months or so. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think I just really enjoy the use of color and the animation style.
  3. What Are You Watching Now?

    No surprise here, but I'm most likely going to watch the movie, Coraline, for a 7th time. I really don't know what it is about this one that captivates my attention, but here we are.
  4. I Just Watched...

    This is honestly one of the first older movies I remember watching during my re-immersion into old movies. I could not tell you what this movie was about without reading your synopsis; you are correct, it certainly is forgettable. I didn't hate it, but we can't all be The Thin Man or Bringing up Baby.
  5. Wow this guy really doesn't like TCM anymore!

    Boy, it's people like this who always manage to annoy me. It's not difficult to do research and type up an opinions piece without being obnoxious. There's a way to voice your opinion without coming across as a completely miserable person.
  6. I Just Watched...

    TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962) I believe this is the first time I've watched this one in its entirety. I had to read the novel twice for school (went to 2 different high schools), so I was familiar with the overall plot-line. I love Gregory Peck. This subject matter never fails to strike several chords with me.
  7. I LIKE them, but.....

    How did I know you were going to bring this one up, speedy?
  8. I Just Watched...

    WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971) Re-watch It's probably been about 10 years since I've seen this movie. I was instantly reminded why I love it, and why I hate Grandpa Joe. His daughter (in law?) is working her fingers to the bone at work in order to feed her parents and in-laws and her young son, and he acts like he's completely paralyzed, but then the minute Charlie finds a golden ticket, this jackalope is jumping around for joy, as if he's suddenly been cured. Anyway, enough about Grandpa Joe's tomfoolery. I was reminded why I love this movie once the "Pure Imagination" scene happened.
  9. Film You Tried to Watch but Couldn't Get Into It?

    For me, it was The Sandpiper (1965) starring Liz Taylor & Richard Burton, with Eva Marie Saint. It really didn't do anything for me.
  10. Post a romantic movie photo for Valentine's Day!

    Wanted to include Liz and Dick in The Sandpiper (1965) even though I didn't like the movie.
  11. What Are You Watching Now?

    Our minds may be connected. I went with Goodfellas before seeing your post haha. I only barely started watching it though.
  12. What Are You Watching Now?

    Trying to decide between Kill Bill, Goodfellas, Caddyshack, Men Who Stare at Goats, Burn After Reading, Ocean's Eleven, Apollo 13, etc. Maybe I'll just flip a coin or something...
  13. I Just Watched...

    CASPER (1995): Bill Pullman, Christina Ricci I don't recall ever watching this when I was younger, but I'm glad I didn't. I really only watched it now because it was on my list, and I'm not a quitter (only in the case of The Last Unicorn did I quit watching). Granted, it's a kid's movie from the 90s, it's fairly inevitable that it's going to be predictable and annoying. I give it 1/5.
  14. What stars have you never actually seen?

    I didn't do thorough research, I guess, because I have in fact, seen Spiral Staircase.
  15. What stars have you never actually seen?

    Just a little side note (this isn't quite related to the thread), I was doing some research, and as it turns out, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, & Bette Davis are the Top 3 actors for whom I've seen the most films: Grant at 21, Hepburn at 16, and Davis at 13. Rita Hayworth comes in 4th place with 11.
