  5. CSI Miami? Really, they've resorted to showing reruns of csi. I was pretty young in the 90's so I didn't know that much about AMC, but what I did know is that that was the channel to watch to see great films. Actual american movie classics. Nowadays.....well lets just say I don't think Catwoman and Pinata Survival Island are american movie classics. What the heck happened to this channel to make them sell out so much.
  6. No shame my friend. I'm only 23 years old and have lots of life to live and movies to see by the grace of god. And no matter how old you are there is still time to enjoy yourself. Instead of feeling terrified by what I havent seen, i'm jazzed at the prospect of discovering so many new wonderful films in the future. For instance I look foward to finally seeing West Side Story, Anatomy of a Murder, Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia. In fact I have anatomy of a murder on dvr and will be watching that this week. So don't fret my friend. You and yours have a merry christmas and happy new year. I may not know you but I wish you the best and am praying for you.
  7. Willam Powell was pretty dope. I loved him in My Man Godfrey. Any other movies I should check him out in. I heard he is pretty good in the thin man series. As far as cary grant goes I think they both complemented each other. Its a shame they didn't get cast as brothers in a movie. Would have been cool.
  8. I'm only 23 years old. For most of my life (the cognizant years) we didnt have tcm. My dad didnt want to payfor the extra cable cost preferring to use descramblers (never worked.....sometimes). As I grew over the years so did my appreciation of tcm. But alas I could only admire from afar being taunted by ads for great movies being shown that weekend,the 31 days of oscar, and I would be taunted by my sister who had TCM at college. Well we finally got TCM and it was and is a godsend. Still I wonder, what did I miss all those years. What was tcm like. How did it look. What did they show, interviews, cartoons, specials. I see all those little clips inbetween films of stars talking about the films and I wonder if they were part of bigger interivews shown back in the day.
  9. Great film. May me see Paul Newman as a good actor instead of just a boytoy (cool hand luke was a good movie inspite of his performance, basically the movie gave newman a perfect pitch and he knocked it out the park). Also had a great performance by Barbra Rush and a oscar worthy performance by Brian Keith. Great story about the upper classes and fitting in, compromise and what you give up to attain your dreams, the prices of ambition. My only complaint is that they ended it too quick. The story I mean, it was primed for a 4 hour grand hollywood treatment. The first part would be him losing and finding his love, becoming a lawyer and defending his friend, the second part (after intermission) would be his running for office as mayor of philadelphia which I thouch was set up pretty nicely in the film. What do you think?
  10. Gotta disagree with the dargo guy. Maybe in the capacity that he worked for the airline and automobile industry he saw flaws but this was not the opinion of a consumer. Just a **** off employee so of course his opinion is gonna be negative. I think the old cars had better styling and design than the newer ones. So the new ones have better handling. Well thats good if people are always in a hurry like they seem today, but back then not so much so you didn't need better handling because people took their dang time. Any time period has flaws but how the common masses function and live in spite of those flaws is what matters. Back then they at least tried to take care of them selves and have some decorum. It seems like today they've just given up in all matters of life and society. Any way I think this post has gotten away from its original intent. I just wanted to celebrate love of cinema, not merit of time period. Whatever.
  11. Okay people original poster here. Lets simmer down. I just wanted to make a post of pure love for cinema.
  12. this is just perfect. I mean wonderful filmmaking. Why the heck can't they do anything like this today. I got that feeling after watching ball of fire the other night. And the same feeling after watching the apartment. Any classic films you watch that just make you dumbfounded with their brilliance.
  13. John Carpenter that is (although the other question is an interesting one, I fancy christ a spagetti western busby berkly type guy) All kidding aside I'm so excited that one of my favorite directors is picking the films for our viewing pleasure tonight. I really like his movies apart from many other thriller horror fantasy directors that people admonish because carpenter is such a student of great cinema. You can't talk to him about film without him preaching to you the name of howard hawks. it shows in his filmmaking, very assured, great pacing, character, and story. He certainly has learned from the best. Anyone else excited about carpenter. What are some of his favorite films of yours. I like Halloween and The Fog
  14. I think all women photograph better when they are in black and white.
  15. What a wonderful treat waking up this morning to see Lucy almost everywhere I looked. Lucy on the front page of google, Lucy Show Marathon on Tv, and a wonderful Lucy movie marathon on TCM. I am especially looking foward to seeing "Best Foot Foward, Dance Girl Dance (directed by a woman in the 40's !) and the Big Street. I also plan on checking out some episodes and some of the favorite moments from the show. What are some of your favorite Lucy moments, TV or film. As far as tv goes, I would have to say her meeting with William Holden on I love lucy was utterly side splitting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWWj3-qOR1s&feature=related I look at lucy, and women like Betty Hutton, Judy Holiday, Carol Burnett. All the great old women comedic genius' and wonder what happened. Seems like a woman can't be funny nowadays without being vulgar, half naked or a witch. There is talent today, women like anna faris and amanda bynes are genuinely funny but there movie suck so bad. We need better directors and materials for these ladies of comedy. But there is hope and there are always the masters to look to and learn from and just plain enjoy. Lucy was and will continue to be a master not just of comedy but of grace, maturity, beauty, business. So I wish a Very happy birthday to Lucy and a hearty thanks for all her work and the joy and laughter she has brought people. I wonder what she is doing up in heaven right now. Lucy: You know God, I think it would be great if you'd let me sing in the heavenly choir God: Lucy I told you, we've had this choir in place for over a millenia, they don't need any new additions Lucy: Please God: No Lucy: Waaaaaaaaah!
