    Classics you can watch over and over

    My mom can't get enough of this movie. I like it too on occasion, but not really one that I would put on my 'watch over and over again' list.

    Agreed. I usually like Colin Firth, and to be fair he did try his best, but Redgrave was just perfect for the part.

    I Just Watched...

    Not usually a Brad Pitt fan, but I do love Morgan Freeman. Watched this for the first time a few days ago, and I thought everyone was just great in it, even Pitt. Spacey was pretty creepy in here as well. The man may be a real creep in real life but he played his part well in here. He certainly got the best of Pitt's character.

    I agree, THE HARD WAY is a winner, and George and Carson were indeed great in it (as they always are in any movie they're in).

    Would you ever say a movie is stupid?

    I hear what you're saying. Sorry if I sounded a bit opinionated, sometimes I get carried away. And I do get your point. A lot of movies do have a certain intended audience, and it's easy for the non-intended folks to be so critical of a certain movie or TV show, that was never to meant to be in line with THEIR cup of tea.

    Would you ever say a movie is stupid?

    I can't quite buy that crud like the movies I mentioned have some level of merit to them, no matter how hard all the people behind the camera or in front of it may have put into them. Sometimes a bad or stupid film is exactly that and will only be that. I would never call any of the people behind these movies stupid though, because all of them have turned out superior films before and after the aforementioned films I posted. Not stupid at all, but simply not infallible when it comes to making top-notch decisions in the art of movie-making all the time.

  9. I would love to see Olivia on TCM, but realistically she probably wouldn't be up to coming to them because of her age. As speedracer pointed out, they would have to go to her for an interview. On the other hand, if she chooses not to give interviews that is certainly her right. She's entitled to her privacy like everyone else.

    Great One-Liners

    I love this scene. Myrna is going over very specifically what she wants done, but in the end the guys' attitude was to just dismiss it as "Whatever....we'll just get the usual colors."

    Would you ever say a movie is stupid?

    There are silly movies, time-killers that still manage to be quite enjoyable no matter how ridiculous the plot. There's the 'so bad they're good' group of films....you know these movies are awful, but you still have a grand old time watching how ludicrous the story gets more and more, and how hammy and overdramatic or over-the-top the performances can be, or just outright wooden. Then there's the 'so awful, they are just outright stupid' category of movies. ISHTAR, HOWARD THE DUCK and GIGLI qualify big time for this selection IMHO. Count me as another fan of ANCHORMAN as well.

    I always liked this one as well. Propaganda film that it may have been (and hardly one that was screaming "Give it an Oscar") it certainly has much action to keep your interest going.

    Classics you can watch over and over

    Anything with James Cagney (exception being TAXI). Anything with Bogey (particularly CASABLANCA and his teamings with Lauren Bacall). And my non-Cagney/Bogey top 10: BRINGING UP BABY ALL ABOUT EVE THE SOUND OF MUSIC A STAR IS BORN (1954) IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD THE LITTLE FOXES MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE GONE WITH THE WIND THE SEARCHERS THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES Lots more, but if I listed them all...it would be a looooong list, lol.

    Films and the old South

    I mentioned this in another thread, but the films during the studio era, especially the 30's, where just about everybody was affected by the Great depression, audiences were not looking for realism but escapism from the harsh times they were living through. It's best to just view films like JEZEBEL and GONE WITH THE WIND as they were meant to be....films meant to entertain rather than make you think. Hardly a secret that slavery was bad, but a lot of filmmakers in those days were making movies to make people forget their troubles rather than to make movies with a message.

    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    Can never get enough of this film. Just sorry that Peter Lorre wasn't in the movie a bit longer. But there's no denying that Bogey and Bergman are top notch in here. Love Claude Rains, the corruptible, but lovable police inspector whose loyalty changes with the wind. And while Victor Laslow is neither the most exciting nor the most interesting character in the movie, certainly not compared to Rick and Captain Renault (many a time I have heard him described as the 'boring' guy that came between Ilsa and Rick despite the fact Ilsa had married Victor before she ever laid eyes on Rick) Paul Henreid is great in here as well. And can't forget Sydney Greenstreet in a minor but important role as the visa merchant.
