  1. What Are You Watching Now?

    I've never even seen this movie. It's on my list to try watching at least parts of it in 2018, but who knows if that will actually come to fruition.
  2. I Just Watched...

    I have never seen Me and My Gal, although I would like to, as I have recently become a fan of Joan Bennett's. I have seen After Office Hours as TCM has shown it before, and I really liked it. Clark Gable and Constance Bennett made a good team, I think.
  3. I Just Watched...

    THE GREATEST SHOWMAN (2017) Highly fictionalized movie musical about the life of circus giant, P.T. Barnum, starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Keala Settle, & Zendaya, with music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (the team behind La La Land and Broadway's new smash hit, Dear Evan Hansen). Upon listening/seeing the music performed in context, my previous opinion that the music was not up to par was shattered. No, it's not Stephen Sondheim caliber by any means, but it was enjoyable and told the stories it was attempting to do, in my opinion. Hugh Jackman was great, and so were the rest of the cast. It was nice to hear Michelle Williams sing again, since many people don't know that she was in the 2014 Broadway revival of Cabaret. I was impressed by the cinematography and the wardrobe, and I'm glad I always try to go into movies with an open mind. I thoroughly enjoyed this. I was pleasantly surprised. SCORE: 3.5/5
  4. Your fav. character players???

    Wow, I forgot all about him! I do really enjoy him as the cop in Arsenic and Old Lace (one of my favorite movies of all time) who has written a play about his mother, Peaches LaTour. Cracks me up.
  5. Singin' With No Pain

    Bill Lee also dubbed Ben Wright's voice (Roger) in Disney's 101 Dalmatians.
  6. What Are You Watching Now?

    My Man Godfrey (1936) I have seen this one before, and can easily say that it is one of my favorite films of all time. William Powell and Carole Lombard play fantastically well off each other (she easily gives Myrna Loy a run for her money, in my opinion). Gail Patrick is great as usual as the spoiled and uptight sister. Alice Brady and Eugene Pallette are wonderful as Lombard's and Gail Patrick's parents.
  7. Your fav. character players???

    Hermione Gingold. She was fantastic as the Mayor's Wife (Eulalie Mackechnie Shinn) in The Music Man (1962). Never fails to make me chuckle. Here she is with Shirley Jones.
  8. I Just Watched...

    THE SECRET OF NIMH (1982) This is a Don Bluth animated movie; I am a fan of his Anastasia and The Pebble and the Penguin and this was next on my list. It centers around a widow mouse named Mrs. Brisby (I don't believe you ever hear her first name) who has 4 children: 1 of whom is very sick and can't be moved, which proves difficult when the frost is over (spring has sprung) on the farm where they live and the farmer is going to start plowing the field. Brisby has a talk with the "Great Owl" (and lives to tell the tale, no less), who tells her to seek help from the rats in the rosebush (who just so happen to have escaped a testing facility in which they have become extremely intelligent after being test subjects). A cute movie overall. I think Hermione Baddeley's "Auntie Shrew" was hysterically dramatic, and Dom DeLuise was endearing as the clumsy raven, Jeremy. Score: 3/5

    These are some Peter Pan (Disney) reference photos.
  10. The Post an Interesting Pic thread

    Some Kathryn Beaumont Alice in Wonderland (Disney) live action reference photos. I think these are really cool.
  11. A Very Unholy Holly Golightly

    I would watch a film like that in a heartbeat, simply to see Audrey portraying a villainous character for once. It would certainly be a change of pace. If this were true, I think she would absolutely be one of the most terrifying evil characters, simply due to the overall positive connotations I (and the general public) associate her with.

  14. I Just Watched...

    I saw this back when it first was released in theaters, and the clown (Pennywise) scared me so much that I had to sleep with the lights on for a week. I'm a huge wimp when it comes to "scary" movies (unless they were made in the 50s, then I can handle them).
