  1. I would second those who said Mad Mad Mad Mad World and Monty Python & the Holy Grail, and I'm pretty sure I saw Pulp Fiction mentioned, too. I'll add: Lion in Winter The Women How the West Was Won and... Animal House
  2. Yes, the cars, exactly what I was thinking. The documentaries are also excellent. I guess I don't consider those in the same vein as I do the others!
  3. I can't believe no one has mentioned..... They were like the Rat Pack. Only not .
  4. This right here! I do like some of the changes they've made - loving the addition of more foreign movies, for one thing. And, I get that some newer movies are classic (although I would hesitate to call La La Land such, not all Oscar winners are deserving). Or remade from classic movies. It doesn't mean TCM needs to play them to gain newer viewers. In my area, TCM is a *pay channel. They lump it in with sports. Thank you (not), Comcrap. Keep TCM 25 years old and before. We're already saturated with the new stuff, leave that to AMC et al.
  5. Everything old is new again? Um, movies less than 10 years old are going to be programmed? Is that where they're going? AMTCM.....
  6. Why can't TCM just use their own app and allow us to subscribe to it directly? Have been wanting to cut the cord for a while. Could just stream Hulu (and get TCM that way, too). Problem is they will want to charge me more for the internet....sigh....they get ya coming and going. There's no FIOS here to threaten them with, just satellite, both of which stink. At least here they do, because the phone company is so bad (can't get Verizon) that the lines send electrical surges and kill modems over and over again. Comcrap has no a la carte, no senior citizen rates - it does not
  7. If for no other reason than to watch Ted get shot....
  8. Um, the main battle - Pickett's Charge - was fought on July 4. You know, the battle where the south lost half their army marching across an open field like sitting (or marching) ducks? Or maybe you don't... Watch the movie.
  9. Googled "why doesn't TCM show Gettysburg" and found this thread. Now the film is 26 years old, so if 25 years is the technical definition of classic, then it's "eligible". It's already 8-10 years older than the LOTR movies...which along with other newer movies, TCM has already shown anyway. No other channels show the Gettysburg movies, either. So TCM is denying its community of one of the better historical movies made in the last 50 years. Not to mention missing out on all the fun banter we used to have on the IM** forums back in the day, the history, the bloopers (finding moving truc

  16. Ok, thanks - sorry I messed up and did the whole decade. I got too excited.
  17. Now that I have found you all.... I think the 1990s were one of the best decades for foreign movies. JMO. In no particular order.... 1. My Father’s Glory (1990) – Yves Robert, France (Except this one. an all-time favorite) 2. My Mother’s Castle (1990) – Yves Robert, France 3. Raise the Red Lantern (1991) – Yimou Zhang, China 4. Life is Beautiful (1997) – Roberto Benigni, Italy 5. Chungking Express (1994) – Wong Kar Wai, China 6. Three Colors: Red (1994) – Kryzsztof Kieslowski, Poland (OK, also Blue and White, but, a lis
  18. Oh, and I know I missed the 1980s....but from one of my favorites, my bichon Ziggy also seems to like it as well...
  19. I don't come here often. But I just binged all 91 pages of posts in this thread! I applaud all of you who have seen so many of the older films - I have just made a huge list of everything I want to see. I wouldn't know where to find half of it, especially the German films from the 20s and 30s. Also, everything you find on Youtube and elsewhere seem to not have subtitles. But I *will find them! Thanks for all your efforts!!! Freddie
  20. Now that we've got him for a SUTS day.....Mastroianni deserves a month!
  21. Next on my list to request...>>Belmondo<< It would be great to have a French New Wave month, but that's another thread, another board...
  23. Didn't even take two months, let alone two years. They're stopping it in August.
  24. Just found this out today - when for the second time in three months I have not received my NP in the mail, I went to complain, and it sent me an email with a link. It figures. First RO dies, then IMDB got rid of its boards (I wonder if the boards here are next???) and now no more Now Playing. Why would I want to print out their email? They better make sure we get the answers to the last month's puzzle, too.
  25. You might be right. Dad loved this movie, though, and he wasn't a pacifist. Not to mention that Heston is in it....lol But when he got his first DVD player, this is one of the movies I got him to go with it. Big Country *also wins for the music. That theme gives me chills, the best theme from a western ever, hands down.
