    Movies-(but, prefer "Hollywoods Golden Age" by far!), going online, reading, watching tv, music, used to lift weights & ride a huffy bike, until back pain stopped 'em!) 0f course going to new releases-(of which I've been reviewing between 36 to 60 per year since 1982 at only age 17/18) & have also been an *Oscar oddsmaking/pundit since that same year. Winning iv Variety as it's annual *"Oscar-0racle" for 2002-(plus, won several local newspaper contests too) -(P.S. though did weak this past year of 2015, unfortunately) & have been collecting everything cinema-(memorabilia, books, lists, dvd's,etc) since 1979

  8. This is something others may agree & or enjoy with We went to THE UNTOUCHABLES (June of 1987) & typically there were several punks in the audience & w3ere disgustingly outrageously obnoxious during the show, until my mother got up & BELLOWED TO THEM IN WORDS I CAN'T WRITE HERE & of course they yelled disgusting things right back at my mum, she got them thrown out-(ABOUT 7 TO 8 OF THESE SCUM WERE ALL & IMMEDIATELY THROWN 0UT OF THIS THEATRE, WE WERE FRIENDS W/IT'S MGR AS WELL I CAN EVEN NAME THE EXACT SCENE IN WHICH THIS HAPPENED & EVERYTIME I'VE REWATCH
  9. I never really pd that much attention-(though like him as A #1 BOND) until THE UNTOUCHABLES & the way the AMPAS ALMOST IGNORED THIS GRANDLY ENTERTAINING CRIME-DRAMA WAS A DISGRACE, THOUGH I KNEW THETY WOULD BACK THEMN IT'S onY NODS WERE FOR HIM, SCORE-(Morricone)-( & DESE5RVED TO WIN), cOSTUMES & ART DIRECTION THAT WAS THE YR OF *THE LAST EMPEROR THOUGH GOING 9 FOR 9 THE UNTOUACHABLES $76M & DE NIRO WASAN0THER SNUB AS AL CAPONE-(BEST YET ON THE SCREEN) THE LATE BOB HOSKINS WAS GONNA PLAY CAPONE, UNTUIL THEY GOT BOBBY DE FOR IT (My Alternate Oscars for '
  10. THEE BIG QUESTION: Who has all of them up to this date yet???
  11. 1979 at the age of 15 or so was the year that put the hook in me for the first time & I became 100% not only a movie lover, but a collector as well But first i wanted to see why so many including the likes of tv hosts MIKE DOUGLAS, MERV GRIFFIN & others would cal;l KANE the greatest & ALWAYS refer to SPENCE as THE GREAT SPENCER TRACY
  12. Who also preferred THE MUNSTERS to THE ADDAM'S FAMILY?
  13. 1979 Oscar victor for Best Score LITTLE ROMANCE was among RON HOWARD'S top flix for that great cinematic year!
  14. CHAPLIN'S CITY LIGHTS is almost a tie to his 1936 MODERN TIMES &both must rank among HOLLYWOODS TOP TEN BEST FILMS EVER MADE YET! & of course his peers at the ACADEMY snubbed both, theory is because CHARLIE didn't switch to full sound yet?
