Everything posted by Marianne

  1. LonesomePolecat posted this for another category, but it works for repetitive "extended flashbacks" too, I think: Groundhog Day (1993) !
  2. The Big Clock (1946) It's a Wonderful Life (1946) No Way Out (1987)
  3. Out of Time (2003), starring Denzel Washington and Eva Mendes
  4. Lost & Found (2017), Irish film with 7 intersecting stories. I enjoyed it, but it's slow and methodical, not your average US film, that's for sure.
  5. The Big Lebowski (1998), with The Dude (Jeff Bridges)
  6. In "Dead Air," a November 2013 episode of the show Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, a radio presenter is killed and the murder investigation takes place in the radio studio.
  7. The poet killer terrorizes London in Lured (1947), starring Lucille Ball and George Sanders.
  8. Smilla's Sense of Snow (1997)
  9. The television show God Friended Me
  10. How about coming up with a comparable category for the men?! That would be more egalitarian.
  11. Top Billed, you are going to let us know when you start the blog on this same subject, right? And give us the address/URL?
  12. Great choice! Your comment says it all. There's something magnetic about the man, about the character!
  13. Stranger on the Third Floor (1940) Fallen Angel (1945) starts with Dana Andrews stopping in a strange town because he doesn't have the money to go any further on the bus and is kicked off. Rather unceremoniously, too.
  14. The Killers (1946) starts with a stranger stopping in town for some gas at the local gas station.
  15. Mystery Road (2013) and its sequel Goldstone (2016): two Australian films about sex trafficking that also happen to include gunfights -- in the modern Australian outback!
  16. Alan Ladd in This Gun for Hire (1942)
  17. How about all the times Lucy tried to audition for a spot in Ricky Ricardo's nightclub act on the I Love Lucy show?
  18. It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955) I think all the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World films could be included in the "giant monsters" category.
  19. Mystery Road (2013) and its sequel Goldstone (2016): two Australian films about sex trafficking. And in that vein, of course, the U.S. television show Law & Order: SVU. I'd call this "on the lighter side" except it is directed by Woody Allen: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (*But Were Afraid to Ask) (1972).
  20. "The setting is Reno": Born to Kill (1947): Claire Trevor meets Laurence Tierney in Reno, Nevada, and the film starts there.
  21. Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring: the title and Sally Field in the starring role makes the film sound like a comedy, but it was quite a surprise, as I recall. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I think I can still recommend it!
  22. Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring, 1971 television film starring Sally Field and Eleanor Parker. Some scenes show the very unglamorous necessity of scrounging other people's leftover food at outdoor restaurants when one decides to live a wanderer's life.
  23. The Our Gang shorts (known as The Little Rascals on television) All the Charlie Brown television specials The five Peanuts films (see Wikipedia: Peanuts filmography, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanuts_filmography, for the last two)
