  1. This was a grand cinematic yr & very first at only age 14-15 I fell in love with THE MOVIES-(mostly of course Old Hollywood) KRAMER.... ALL THAT JAZZ, APOCALYPSE NOW-(the one my gut reaction even that young just knew would stand the ultimate test of time), NORMA RAE, BLACK STALLION, A LITTLE ROMANCE, BEING THERE-(OUTRAGEOUSLY UNDERMOMMED!?_, , BREKING AWAY, CHINA SYNDROME & more
  2. as Maltin says over theirs ALL THAT JAZZ has it's defenders vs detractors, I've always found it brilliant on every level myself word has it that yr it was looking like a sweep for it as well, but KRAMER VS. KRAMER predictably won
  3. don't get me wrong, it's a very good score,etc however pt of handicapping Oscar is just that Just look at a lot of the races winners as an example
  4. Knew Hancock/Round Midnight would win this Academy Award that yr so they could honor the musician, especially considering it defeated Ennio's majestic THE MISSION score?
  5. When your local movie theater reopens???? what new releases do any of you most hope to see? THANK YOU still closed down here in FL
  6. WHAT A 180% WARREN WENT FROM NATALIA TO MADONNA!
  7. You may know this but hour DEANIE in SPLENDOR... was her own favorite role & was robbed of the Academy Award for it
  8. To tikisoo, thanks to anyone for shots of my love! Did you really look like her as a wee gal though? Ironically GYPSEY is on demand right now, but quickly turned it off, it messes with my head BIG-TIME! It also marks the first time a director (Mervyn LeRoy) le her use her own singing voice?
  9. thanks to those that posted! I'm a big guy at easily 5;10 & now about 315lbs-(was once over 335lbs) ut as I said my NYC/NJ accent just seems to grow for some reason, I sound like between De Niro & Tony Soprano
  10. I kinda like her but always forget her name Most will know the Australian lady had just aired one of MR. ROBERT OSBORNE'S top movie picks from 2009 Who knows the rest? I do know his top ten all-time all-around personal favs but please send me a tip/link of the res of ROBERT'S TOP PICKS THANK YOU
  11. YES, FINALLY INCLUDES THE GODFATHER
  12. Straight from my BERT SUGAR (937-2012) book His choices as the all-time greatest fighters in history top 100, but i'll only list his final top ten Before that he ranked MIKE TYSON as100th? 1st place SUGAR RAY ROBINSON 2nd HENRY ARMSTRONG 3rd WILLIE PEP 4th JOE LOUIS 5th HERRY GREB 6. BENNY LEONARD 7. MUHAMMAD ALI 8. ROBERTO DURAN 9. JACK DEMPSEY_(& Bert's vote as the greatest ever was DEMPSEY VS. FIRPO in 1923 with 11 knockdowns!) 10th place by Bert was JACK JOHNSON & ridiculously the sole boxer/heavyweight to never lose ROCKY MARCIANO at 14th??? please send own pix and comments
