  1. Since I've never seen Grease 2 I have no comment on the film's quality. Here's someone, however, that can be added to the list of the film's haters. Michelle Pfeiffer: “I hated that film with a vengeance and could not believe how bad it was. At the time I was young and didn’t know any better.” https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/michelle-pfeiffer-starred-in-a-flop-and-later-said-i-hated-that-film-with-a-vengeance.html/
  2. "Actually, shweetheart, it's pretty easy to figure out. You see Sean Regan got shot by Eddie Mars' goons . . . no, no, Eddie Mars was blackmailing Carmen but he . . . well, for sure Little Jonesy and General Sterling had an "unusual" friendship till the butler caught them at it one day and then . . . Aw, nuts, baby. Let's go in the back room and make out."
  3. I watched Oz a couple of year ago and marvelled at what a perfect film it is in so many ways. Seriously, I don't think the film has any real flaws. I realize that the Star Wars generation and beyond will have their own favourites for repeat viewings. Still, with home television broadcasts, and video tape, DVD and blu ray releases that can be played endlessly, I suspect that Oz has been viewed enough times to compete with more recent film hits. It's a film that will appeal to both kids and adults, an important criterion for repeat viewings.
  4. Interesting. That could lead to a different thread, with title like Favourite Films That You Don't Watch Often. There may also be films that posters don't watch because they associate that particular film with some kind of painful experience in their lives. But that would be too depressing a topic for some, I'm sure, to explain the reason why. I think that listing films you watch a lot is a far more fun topic.
  5. I have a sneaking suspicion that, even if it is not on movie fans' repeat lists, this may be the most viewed film of all time.
  6. Dang! Except for the young, handsome and 6 feet 2 part I could have qualified as a Lloyd Bridges stand-in. Okay, maybe I'd have to lose 40 lbs., too, but then I would have qualified.
  7. I watched that film again just this week. Lord knows how many times I've seen it but I read the Davis Grubb novel when I was a kid because of the film so my viewings started many decades ago. Every now and then it is necessary for me to go back and re-visit Laughton's dark fairy tale. It's still a unique film in so many ways, challenging to classify. The noir crowd claims it, of course, and I can see their point. But how many noirs have a Mother Goose figure in them, along with the Big Bad Wolf? A great film, even if I find the final third of it frustrating. And Mitchum, what a performance! Bu
  8. Yes, the Universal horror films will always have a special place in my heart, too. How many Friday nights of my youth did I spend in front of a flickering TV set watching the Friday Night Fright Show on Buffalo's WKBW, hosted by Dracula impersonator Adam Keefe (who also did commercials in his Dracula outfit, I later discovered. How fangtastic those products must have been!). It was this show that largely introduced me to Karloff, Chaney and Lugosi, among so many others. To my mind the class act of them all was Bride of Frankenstein. However, I also have a great affection for the first of
  9. My favourite film as a kid was Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (I still remember sitting on Dad's lap as I watched it the first time and clasping my hand over my eyes any time the "Wolf Man Theme" started to play on the soundtrack). After all these years I still love the film, even if I may have cooled it a bit on Bud and Lou in their other films. It would be interesting to know how many times I've seen the film over the years but my guess is that it has to be a minimum of 30 to 40 times. Others films that I've seen, perhaps in the same approximate number, would include A
  10. One of the many moments of hilarity worthy of a repeat viewing in It's A Gift. "Do you know a man named La Fong? Carl La Fong. Capital L, small A, capital F, small O, small N, small G. La Fong. Carl La Fong." "No, I don't know Carl La Fong. Capital L, small A, Capital F, small O, small N, small G."
  11. Yup, it definitely looks like you're a confirmed NBNW junkie, Alabama Al. I never noticed the matchbook inconsistency, thanks. And welcome to the boards.
  12. Good to see you back with one of your lists, Lawrence. Like myself and zillions of others, I see you love your escapist films.
