  1. THE JUNGLE BOOK (1967) *Score: 3/5/5* I grew up watching this movie, and have enjoyed it ever since. I really dig the hand-drawn animation style, and the music. I like how the main theme is used throughout the film; I tend to be a pretty big thematic person. The voice actors for the characters are all pretty rad too. I especially enjoy George Sanders as the voice of the tiger, Shere Khan. Although the elephants are probably my favorites of the entire movie. "Colonel Hathi's March" is my favorite song in this. Just a little update: I haven't been watching these in order, so I decide
  2. This is still happening, although I have decided not to go in order anymore lol
  3. NOISES OFF (1992) Starring: Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeve, Michael Caine, Marilu Henner, Nicollette Sheridan, Julie Hagerty, John Ritter. My friend George from my film club recommended this movie to me, and I watched it 5 times in 4 days... So fill in the blank on whether I liked it or not. I have become quite a fan of Peter Bogdanovich lately, and am excited to see more of his work (I have seen Targets, What's Up Doc, Paper Moon in addition to this one).
  4. REPULSION (1965) I've been trying to get into more of Catherine Deneuve's work, so I gave this one a try. I didn't care for it.
  5. #73: LT. ROBIN CRUSOE, U.S.N. (1966) *Score: 3/5* Starring: Dick Van Dyke, Nancy Kwan, Akim Tamiroff, Arthur Malet, Tyler McVey. This was a zany and ridiculous tale about a Naval man who was shipwrecked on an island, and his interactions with the natives of the island. Dick Van Dyke is always quite funny, and he definitely made me chuckle while watching this. Along for the ride is Nancy Kwan, as an island girl who meets DVD, and falls for him, thus incurring the wrath of her father, the leader of the group of Islanders. I would say more about this, but I don't have a lot
  6. I've really been digging both Cate Blanchett's and Julianne Moore's work lately... I think they are both fabulous.
  7. On Sunday, I caught the 1 pm showing of "The Color Purple" (presented by TCM and Fathom Events). I've read the book before a few times, so I didn't go into it completely blind. I will admit that the film really spoke to me/touched me. I rated it 4.5/5 stars.
  8. It's all good. If you like it, you like it. Film taste is extremely subjective. It just didn't do anything for me this second time around.
  9. I've seen "Lady Vanishes" before, but it was a long while ago, and I hope upon rewatch, it fares better than 39 Steps.
  10. INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1978) *Score: 3.5/5 Starring: Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy, Veronica Cartwright. Not as enjoyable as the original '56 version, but it was nice to have a little Kevin McCarthy cameo in the first half. THE 39 STEPS (1935) *Score: 2.5/5 Starring: Robert Donat, Madeleine Carroll, Lucie Mannheim, Godfrey Tearle, Peggy Ashcroft, John Laurie, Helen Haye. I really didn't enjoy this upon rewatching it. I remember liking it back in high school, but I was terribly bored this second time.
  11. FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (1986) *Score: 3.5/5 Starring: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jennifer Grey, Jeffrey Jones, Charlie Sheen. I just watched this yesterday for the first time. I'm glad I finally sat down and watched it, because it was quite entertaining. I understand why so many people my age and older like this. LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA (1962) *Score: 2.5/5 Starring: Olivia de Havilland, Yvette Mimieux, George Hamilton, Rossano Brazzi. This one was okay. I didn't really enjoy it, although I do like Olivia de Havilland. THE FIGHTER (2010) *Score: 3.5
  12. I am kind of the same way. I recently got into silents as well. I would recommend The Kid (1921) and Safety Last (1923). Those are both quite short and entertaining, in my opinion.
  13. Next week's pick is Arsenic and Old Lace (1944). I have seen this dozens of times, but will be rewatching it, as it is always a fun time.
  14. I figured I might start a thread on here regarding the weekly picks for my online film club. Each week, a different member chooses something for the rest of the club to watch (we pick in the order we joined the club).
  15. COME BACK LITTLE SHEBA (1952) *Score: 3.5/5 Burt Lancaster and Shirley Booth are both very solid in this. I had seen snippets of this several years ago, and finally sat down to watch it in its entirety. BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ (1962) *Score: 4/5 Burt Lancaster is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. I'm doing a challenge for film club, where I pick 5 movies from 12 of my favorite actors and watch them all this year. This comes out to the grand total of 60. I have done 4/5 for Burt, but plan on watching more of his since there is a collection of several of them on the Crite
  16. #72: THE UGLY DACHSHUND (1966) *Score: 4/5* Starring: Dean Jones, Suzanne Pleshette, Charlie Ruggles, Parley Baer, Robert Kino, Mako Iwamatsu Mark and Fran Garrison are the proud parents of a champion dachshund named Danke, and they find themselves the new parents of three puppies as well. Mark also then does a favor for the town vet, Doc Pruitt, by taking in a Great Dane puppy who isn't getting enough milk. Mark doesn't tell Fran that the male puppy is a completely different breed of dog, but she eventually figures it out. She is against the idea of owning a Great Dane, but for Ma
  17. #71: THAT DARN CAT! (1965) *Score: 3/5* Starring: Hayley Mills, Dean Jones, Dorothy Provine, Roddy McDowall, Elsa Lanchester, Frank Gorshin, William Demarest, Patti's (Mills) Siamese cat, DC, is known to roam about the town and beg for food from the neighbors, but one night, he comes home wearing a woman's wristwatch instead of his collar, and the letters "H, E, and L" are scratched into the back. Patti concludes that someone (potentially a local woman who has gone missing) was trying to write the word "Help" on the back of the watch, but was interrupted, so she takes her "case" to
  18. #70: THE MONKEY'S UNCLE (1965) *Score: 2/5* Starring: Tommy Kirk, Annette Funicello, Leon Ames, Frank Faylen, Norm Grabowski, Arthur O'Connell, Connie Gilchrist. The title doesn't actually have all that much to do with the overall plot. Merlin (Kirk) obtains legal guardianship of a chimpanzee named Stanley for an experiment (raising chimps as one would raise a human child). The plot then shifts to more "wacky, madcap" college adventures. Mr. Astorbilt (O'Connell) informs the Midvale College board that he will make a generous donation to the school, but only if the students can prod
  19. My Man Godfrey (1936), Bringing up Baby (1937), My Fair Lady (1964), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), and Doctor Dolittle (1967) are a few that I will rewatch constantly. They're comforting to me, I guess.
  20. #69: THOSE CALLOWAYS (1965) *Score: 2/5* Starring: Brian Keith, Vera Miles, Brandon De Wilde, Walter Brennan, Ed Wynn, Linda Evans. It's a pity that I didn't enjoy this one more, seeing as how it has a pretty solid cast. The story surrounds the Calloway family, who are kind of looked down on a bit by the rest of the townsfolk, due to their eccentricities and beliefs about nature/animals. The main conflict in this is whether or not the local flocks of geese should be shot and eaten, or allowed to live in peace. The Calloway patriarch (due to his time spent with local Native American
  21. #68: EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES (1964) *Score: 3.5/5* Starring: Bryan Russell, Walter Slezak, Roger Mobley, Heinz Schubert, Peter Ehrlich, Cindy Cassell. This movie opens on a young boy named Emil, dragging a large suitcase behind him as he follows his mother to the bus station. Emil is going to go visit his grandmother in Berlin, but after he gets robbed by a low-life on the bus, he makes finding the criminal and turning him over to the police his new mission. He meets Gustav and his young group of detectives, who all lend a hand in helping Emil find the criminal who stole his money.
  22. I liked some of the "Poppins" predecessors. Just none that I've absolutely loved.
  23. Wasn't Donald O'Connor up to 4 packs a day during the time of filming "Singin' in the Rain?"
  24. Interesting. I like her movies, don't love them though... But "Ugly Dachshund" is another favorite of mine. It's very enjoyable.
