  1. I think it is absurd to say that different genders only appeal to certain movies. I know lots of men who hate John Wayne and tough guy movies and greatly prefer romantic comedies. And I know lots of women who hate romantic mush and love action and war films. Hollywood should stop trying to make films that only appeal to a certain audience. When you think about it, there are only two types of movies. Good and Bad. Since Good and Bad movies change from person to person, there really is no type of movie. Sometimes I think TCM categorizes movies too much, but it would not be the same without film festivals of certain actors or concepts. When I was at a friends house in Calgary, we were deciding on a movie to watch. They were going to watch Rocky until I decided to show up. They thought cause I was a girl, I would want to watch something like Moonstruck. Rocky happens to be one of my favorite movies. Just cause I'm a girl doesn't mean I hate movies with action and men. Maybe I'm more open minded than most people, but I think it's stupid to categorize movies in terms of Chick Flicks, and Guy Flicks. Message was edited by: Annieandherbananas

  5. Every year, my neighborhood hosts it's annual 4 day Sci-Fi festival. During the day you normally see people dressed in costumes, merchants selling sci fi gear and films, and tons of live music. During the night, the usually show 2 or 3 films. For the first time, the neighborhood board has asked me to pick the films. Again, they usually show 2 or 3 films a night, always starting at 8:00pm, and it runs for 4 days. Any suggestions? P.S. Remember, this is aimed for a teen nerd comic book audience.
  6. 1970's is when film really started to change. It's when extreme violence and slutiness came into movies. Films like Taxi Driver or Smokey and the Bandit are what started what started crude and crass modern film making. It also pioneered modern space age special effects. Even though It really started with 2001: A space Odyssey, Film like Stars Wars, Close Encounters, Jaws, Alien, and Logans Run started the amazing special effects that you see in todays movies. What do you think of 70's film making.
  7. Wow. I couldn't for the life of me find any of those forums when I searched. Thanks lzcutter. All that fuss about something actually quite reasonable. Seems silly if you think about it
  8. I can't find the old archives. Could you show me some?
  9. I think it was a wonderful idea to show the Sinatra TV specials on TCM. They really show his kindness and his extreme talent. I don't think it would have been Sinatra month with out them. How come no one complained during Dick Cavett Month? By the way, I really like the idea of a TCM TV channel. I would showcase cartoons and have original shows on it too.

  10. I love to see Charlton Heston Smile. Bing Crosby too. But favorite guy smile is from David Bowie. His smile just knocks you out.
  11. I love Guys and Dolls. If you don't like movies about dishonest people and gamblers, this is not the movie for you. But if you love Marlon Brando or the Chairman of the Board and colorful musicals, you will luv this. I garuntee it. It's one of my favorite movies.
  12. I love Annie Hall. It happens to by my favorite movie in fact. It's almost perfectly done. I don't get the idea where you think it's stressful (except maybe on the part of Woody). TCM used to play it all the time. I don't know what happened
