  1. Have any of you watched Miyazaki films on Cartoon Network? I swear to you, I timed it- they show 10 minutes of film, 10 minutes of commercials. A 2 hour film begins at 7 and ends at 11. Very frustrating. I know, they have to pay the bills......... but PLEASE! Shelly
  2. Hard to choose just 5, but..... North by Northwest Rebecca Rear Window Family Plot The Trouble With Harry I love Family Plot and The Trouble With Harry so much because they aren't typical Hitchcock- both are so incredibly silly and have such convoluted plots. Did any of you who saw Family Plot not laugh hysterically when Barbara Harris put her hands over Bruce Dern's eyes when he was driving the car down the twisted mountain road with no brakes? Did you wonder if we'd ever find out how Harry REALLY died? This movie was Jerry Mathers' ( Leave It To Beaver) debut- he was quite good,
  3. I just reread all of the posts to this thread, and you know what? I apologize for my defense of Tecknid. He/she started out by expressing his/her admiration of Miyazaki specifically and anime in general, then, after so many of you slammed him/her, came back and said it was all sarcasm. Hell with that. The anime currently popular on TV is crap. Miyazaki, however, is art. His films all have a message- however overbearing- but I defy anyone to say that Miyazaki's hand painted artwork is something less than brilliant. I love watching his films simply to admire his artwork- but
  4. Please accept my apology for the "****" comment. Believe me, I absolutely ADORE the old films- the black and whiter, the better- but I also appreciate the artistry of Miyazaki. Far be it from me to say what does or does not belong on TMC, but I do enjoy some variety in programming, just as I do in my life! Besides, didn't TMC air the Miyazakiu films late on Saturday? Maybe you should give them a chance if TMC runs them again, not for the plot, but to appreciate the beauty of Miyazaki's detailed artwork. Granted, it's no Rocky and Bullwinkle.........but what is?
  5. This thread being a few months old, my message might not be read, HOWEVER- All of you certainly have the right to dislike Anime in general and Miyazaki in particular, just as Technid ( I probably spelled it wrong, so come on after me!) has the right to enjoy the genre and the director. This person also has the right to express his/her opinion, as we all do. I guess you all have the right to belittle Technid, hint that he/she is stupid because of a spelling error or two- of course, none of you have ever made a typo- and flat out say that this person had limited education and didn't pay
  6. I was watching "My Favorite Wife" for about the 50th time yesterday, and was driving myself crazy during the scenes with Randolph Scott, trying to remember who it is I know that looks like him...when SUDDENLY..... Everyone else might think I'm crazy, but give this some thought. Forget the hair, accent, and hype, focus on the face. FABIO! No, really. Especially in profile, and smiling. Let me know what you think- be NICE! Shelly
  7. I'm curious as to why one would think TCM isn't the place for Miazaki films. Don't get me wrong, I'm one of those people who thinks there haven't been many quality films made since 1965, and that there haven't been any "real" stars since Grant, Stewart, Hepburn, etc. But where else could we see animated films of this quality? Have you actually LOOKED at them? If so, you couldn't help being amazed at the beauty and detail of the artwork, especially in "Spirited Away". Beginning with the foliage and shadow work of the trees along the dirt road at the beginning of the film, the use of ligh
  8. My favorite is "The Great Escape". My husband is a war movie FREAK, his very favorite is one we never call by it's actual name; instead we refer to it as "Gavabutu"- or however it's spelled. It is, of course, "In Harm's Way". Shelly
