  1. ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN - (5/10) - Clint Eastwood reaches the pinnacle of artistic achievement with this haunting tale of a grown man who drives around with a monkey and punches people for dollars. A sequel to an earlier film about monkeys and punching.
  2. Al Nesor was in SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS with Pia Zadora
  3. Salieri - F. Murray Abraham in AMADEUS
  4. SEPTEMBER was the film. Sam Shepard, Maureen O'Sullivan and Charles Durning were recast with Sam Waterston, Elaine Stritch and Denholm Elliott.
  5. ALIEN CONTAMINATION - (6/10) - Slimy, Italian-produced ripoff of both ALIEN and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. Recommended. Lots of people blow up. Music by Goblin. Bring the kids.
  6. Many many years ago, during some sort of family gathering, I was talking about classic films I had seen recently, including ALICE ADAMS. My very elderly great grandmother, a quiet, conservative, church going, polite 'n proper lady, said aloud to everyone, " I saw ALICE ADAMS. That Fred MacMurray can put his shoes under my bed anytime!" She never said anything remotely like that before or since, and everyone at the gathering was in tears from laughing so hard. I always think of that when I see ALICE ADAMS.
  7. Mara Corday was in THE GIANT CLAW with Jeff Morrow
  8. I just looked up the ones I didn't know...surprised I didn't know EDGE OF THE WORLD, since I'm a big fan of Michael Powell's work. The photo I saw from EDGE had Niall MacGinnis...I've never seen him that young.
  9. KNIGHT WITHOUT ARMOR, THE EMPEROR'S CANDLESTICKS, TOVARICH, ELEPHANT BOY, EASY LIVING, and THE EDGE OF THE WORLD are all unseen by me, all unknown except for ELEPHANT BOY. THE PRISONER OF ZENDA was nearly a runner-up for me.
  10. I've seen POSSESSION. Recommended. BLACK MOON I haven't seen, but will be recording.
  11. When did you upset me? I was the one that sort of agreed with you.
  12. 1937 - 74 films seen 1. GRAND ILLUSION 2. THE AWFUL TRUTH 3. STAGE DOOR 4. CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS 5. THE GOOD EARTH 6. A DAY AT THE RACES 7. TOPPER 8. THE LIFE OF EMILE ZOLA 9. MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW 10. DEAD END Runner-ups: LOST HORIZON, IN OLD CHICAGO, MARKED WOMAN, NIGHT MUST FALL, and KID GALAHAD Not a spectacular year, to be honest. I liked every movie on the list, obviously, but none rank as my absolute favorites, with the possible exception of GRAND ILLUSION. Time to make a confession: I'm not a huge fan of animation. As with musicals, I respect the artistry i
  13. I don't know if you are being facetious, but STAR TREK was brought up because J.J. Abrams directed the two recent TREK reboot films, and he also directed THE FORCE AWAKENS.
  14. Haven't seen any, but from what I read, SON OF SAUL is probably the winner.
  15. I'll hopefully be recording VIGIL IN THE NIGHT. This will be the fourth or fifth try. Something usually goes wrong. I want to see it for the small role Peter Cushing plays. VIGIL was the last film he made during his short pre-war attempt as a Hollywood actor. After this, he went back to Britain and joined the military.
  16. Criterion March titles announced: PARIS BELONGS TO US (1961) March 8 THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962) March 15 A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY (1991) March 22 A POEM IS A NAKED PERSON (1974) March 29 plus blu ray upgrade for BICYCLE THIEVES (1948) March 29
