  1. The Soul disney pixar movie stood out to me because of its predominantly black characters and emotionally powerful story. I love the Soul Disney Pixar movie for it's profound themes, humor, memorable characters, list goes on. Story: The Soul Disney Pixar movie is about Joe Gardner, a middle school band teacher who's life doesn't go as planned. He's passionate about Jazz but when he travels to another realm and helps another being find its passion - he learns the meaning of soul. I loved how the Soul Disney Pixar movie portrayed blacks realistically in regards to their mannerisms, culture, speech, etc. I loved how Joe hated Jazz at first until his father took him to a Jazz club and Joe falls in love with Jazz after hearing it. I loved the character development in the Soul Disney Pixar movie. Joe was selfish and didn't care about the spiritual realm he was in. Eventually he realizes life is more than just your career. 22 originally doesn't want to live on earth because it's worthless in her mind. Joe could've been a lost soul had he continued in his selfish ways and stayed disconnected from life. 22 doesn't see the purpose of life which is why she refuses to go to earth. The animation of lost souls disturbed me especially when Joe saw 22 in the body of the lost soul and heard her insecurities. I loved the ambiguity of the ending in the Soul Disney Pixar movie. We don't know which body Joe Gardner and 22 end up in. I'll analyze my favorite scenes from the Soul Disney Pixar movie. We're introduced to Joe Gardner doing band practice with his students in a classroom that's poorly funded. First of all, I love how accurate this scene is. When I was in elementary school, kids dressed and behaved as shown in the the Soul Disney Pixar movie. They were fooling around and not taking music seriously. Joe dislikes this judging from his cringe but tries to instill his passion for Jazz in his students despite the situation he's in. The girl (Connie) plays the trombone with passion. When she stands up, we can see she's the only one who took music seriously. Nevertheless, she loses confidence when the class makes fun of her. She doubts herself when she points out she's 12 years old. The school is poorly funded probably because of institutional racism against blacks and society doesn't take music seriously in school. I loved the sense of humor in this scene. Joe's work seems to pay off when he plays the piano in front of the kids and they simply watch in amazement. Soul started with a strong opening because we not only learn Joe is passionate about Jazz that he doesn't care about money, he also wants to inspire others to be like him. I love how Soul reveals to us who the characters are through body language. When Joe looks at a picture of Dorthea Williams in the classroom and presumably his favorite Jazz musicians, we learn he idolizes them. Joe's flaws are revealed early in the Soul Disney Pixar movie. He's selfish. For example, when he tells his story to Connie - he doesn't stop and think if she can relate. Another flaw is he's not completely honest about his feelings towards others. This is shown when he tells the school principal "you're doing my ears a favor." His student gets offended and Joe says "not you! You're good!" but secretly tells the principal he's not. When he talks with his mother, we can see what kind of person she is. She doesn't completely support him. It seems she only loves him for who she wants him to be. When his old friend, Curly, calls Joe - we see Joe is humble. When Joe rehearses with Dorthea Williams and the rest of the band, we can see Dorthea is not impressed at first. This is probably because of so many musicians who failed to meet her standards as a pianist. This also suggests performing on stage with Dorthea Williams isn't what Joe is expecting. Joe can't see it because he's blinded by a fantasy and idol worship of her. This will play a bigger part later in the film. Joe plays the piano and gets into "the zone." This is likely when he somehow opens a connection with the soul realm later in the Soul Disney Pixar movie. When Joe's so excited that he finally got the job, he carelessly moves around and nearly gets in accidents. From this scene, we can see Joe's weakness. He cares too much about his career that he doesn't care much about his wellbeing. He believes life's purpose rests on your actions, namely his dream career. If you want more, check my post! Review of Soul Disney Pixar movie

  3. Hello, I have watched different promo's of "Women Make Film" on TCM and I especially was amazed and moved by one in particular. It starts off in the present and goes back in time to when film was just in its infancy. It centered on 100 years of films. I do believe it coincides with Women Filmmakers, I think it is so wonderful how far women have come along in the entertainment industry. Directing, producing and writing as well as acting. I have not found the promo/video on TCM or on YouTube.com either. I would like to know if anyone here could tell me about the song that was used to promote it, please? I could tell by the voice that the song was sung by a woman and it was very emotional and uplifting. It really did go so well with the message of the advertisement, if someone here could help me I would really appreciate it a lot. Thank you for your time and be well. Good evening, LadyLoriAnn46
  4. Calling all dreamers! I'm assembling a team of creatives to make an independent feature film about cookie dough, depression, and the power of empathy. Entitled Terrificman, it tells the story of a struggling writer/comedian who accidentally eats a tub of cookie dough laced with an empathy drug, enabling him to experience the inner emotions of whomever he locks eyes with. He uses this newfound ability to help people with hidden depression. For more information and to read the screenplay, send me an email at lpsrhen@gmail.com. Have a terrific day! Sincerely, Sam Hendrian

  7. Seeing on how the late actor died two days ago, will TCM be doing a tribute next month? As I was watching his spoken tribute to Spencer Tracy yesterday afternoon, I was kinda sad. Knowing he had died and he REALLY adored Spencer greatly. Will the tribute be happening? Has their already been talks of it?

  9. Hello all! I am new to the message boards and I am excited to partake in classic film discussions of all kinds! I just started a classic film blog two weeks ago, and I am very interested in any feedback or ideas that fellow classic film lovers have. I currently have written about 9 or 10 movies. I know I need to upgrade it in terms of graphics, etc., but I will do that in time. Thanks very much! https://charsmoviereviews.wordpress.com/
  10. Hello, I thought that I've been on the games and trivia forum long enough to start a thread. I'm Canadian, and thought I'd start a trivia thread about Canadian movie artists. Whether they have always been Canadian, were born in Canada, or were born in other countries and later became a Canadian citizen, these all qualify for this category. I'll start with the first question: What actor born in Montreal in the year 1931 moved to Ontario to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Company before moving to Hollywood in movies and later television is a Canadian who has never gotten American citizenship?
  11. Here we are sharing latest news updates of highest grossing Bollywood movies 2016 with all of you. Also we are providing movies review. http://www.ilubilu.com/top-10-highest-grossing-bollywood-movies-2016-list.html
  12. I am a big Hitchcock fan. I've seen nearly all of his movies, including titles that you never think of off the top of your head. What are your favourite Hitchcock movies, artists, sub-genres, movies with frequent stars, movies based upon books, and really any aspect of Hitchcock in general? I'll start with his most frequent male stars and my favourite movie of all time. Then I'll look at different aspects on different days so that it is a long running thread but not one where I am posting several pots in one day with no replies in between etc. My favourite Hitchcock movie of all time is Rear Window. He worked with two male stars 4 times each - James Stewart and Cary Grant James Stewart 4 Movies: Rear Window is my favourite. Cary Grant 4 movies: North By Northwest is my favourite. Among character actors, Hitchcock made the most movies with Leo G. Carroll. My favourite of his collaborations with Hitchcock is Spellbound.
  13. Hello, everyone. I am starting this thread to talk about an ancestor of mine and the adaptations of his writing. I am descended from the *brother* of Rudyard Kipling on my mother's side. I try to see every adaption of his writing. My favourite poem of his is "If" which he wrote for his son. It always makes me cry when I read it. My favourite movie of his work is Gunga Din. My favourite version of The Jungle Book is the animated Disney movie. What are your favourite Rudyard Kipling adapted movies and television?
  14. There are a lot of Hollywood families in the movie industry. Usually when the relationships are parent and child, they have the same surname. Siblings quite often don't, especially during the studio system era when you were given new names. What siblings do you admire their work. Are you familiar with all members of a family, or do you prefer one over the other? What are your favourite films of theirs? I am a fan of both Joan Fontaine and Olivia DeHaviland I love all Barrymore siblings with a preference for lionel I am a fan of both James Arness and Peter Graves I am more of a fan of Dana Andrews than Steve Forrest.
  15. What are your favourite movies and television titles from the work of Edgar Allen Poe. I love The Tell Tale Heart. I enjoy The Raven. There is a wonderful movie about him starring Joseph Cotton as Poe before he was famous called The Man With a cloak. A lot of his movies have been made into horror films that are a bit too gory for my taste, but he is a wonderful writer.
  16. Hello, because many of the American and some of the Canadian posters are focused upon the upcoming election in the US, a lot of us who want to talk about movies are finding that we are having a hard time getting new people to join our threads. This thread is created with this in mind. This thread is to talk about the movies made about politicians who are real life and how well they are made. ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN is my favourite as it is a suspense film. Lincoln is a favourite subject of movies, as is FDR, and JFK. I have yet to see All The King's Men, but it has long been on my to-see list. What movies do you admire made about politicians?
  17. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/film-noir-movies/ Many thanks to ClassicMovieRankings for completing my requested page for Film Noir on his Ultimate Movie Rankings website. I love it Bruce. I have seen 186 movies listed with plenty on my to-see list. What an Easter present for me.
  18. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/afi-top-100-movies/ ClassicMovieRankings has completed a request for a page ranking AFI's Top 100 movies. I have seen 74 of them. CMR has seen 100 of them.
  19. MOVIES WHICH CHEER YOU UP: The Thin Man is about to start in half an hour. I love this film and it always cheers me up. What are other movies which cheer you up after a hard day?
  20. Hello everyone. ClassicMovieRankings hasn't been TCM forums in a few days, but I wanted to let people know who are fans of Lillian Gish that he completed her page: http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/lillian-gish-movies/comment-page-1/#comment-17319 It is his quest to do all 50 AFI legends. He now has only Mary Pickford and Buster Keaton to complete this 5 year goal. He would love to publish a book on all 50 of them depending upon costs. My favourite Lillian Gish movie is The Night of the Hunter. I've seen some movies from her early career, and some of her television appearances. Lillian Gish lovers will enjoy this page.
  21. I know I may get some flack for this, but I find it extremely depressing to go on to this website for TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES, and have it totally overrun -off-topic forum I grant you that - by topics about elections (Canada just went through one), and various hot button issues. I press 'new content since my last visit" and everything is mostly totally political. I stopped watching everything that had commercials and avoided everything online during that time when I wanted to relax. If a movie is about politics, I'm quite happy to talk about politics in reference to how that movie looks at issues such as the recent movie The Big Short. That movie made me thrilled that I do not actually live in Vancouver. But I already get enough depressing news on the news channels, the newspaper, online about environment disasters I go on this site to talk about movies, artists, anything to do with the movie industry at all. It is only February. November is a long way a way in my mind in regards to this website being able to keep up with threads that are about movies/non-politics. For the record, I am Canadian. I live in British Columbia. I watch movies, listen to music, sing in choirs, devote my life to my cat all in an attempt to avoid going crazy about what's on news channels. My mother is a Canadian, my late father was an American. My parents were different religions. I have nine European countries in my ancestry, one of which is Italian -1/4. I watch gangster movies from the studio system era, but not ones made since the code ended. In other words, I am one of the people of Italian descent who has never seen any of the Godfather movies and cannot stand the thought of watching them. Forgive me my rant.....Where I live we used to have the best drinking water in the country. One pipeline disaster ..... Must live in my fantasy world of movies made before I was born...............
  22. why is it that TCM takes so long to show her films and when they do, they are at very bad hours. however, i see that on may 2nd they will be showing as an essential no less, Ninotchka and then Anna Christie which they nver show and they will also show Queen Christina which was way ahead of its time in content, watch the film and see what i mean, anyway thank you TCM for this nice treat, keep up the good work, incidentally i am sick of seeing Gaslight it is a good film but really every other week it is on.......and correct me if i am wrong but Bergman does not create much interest today, lots of young people do not even know who she is, but they know Garbo!
  23. Hey all! Earlier this year, Harry Belafonte was slated to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, an honorary Oscar, at the Governor's Awards ceremony. The event took place on Nov. 8th, and I wanted to share the video links to his acceptance speech. Listen to the whole thing, if you can; it's worth it. I'm constantly floored by the carriage and presence of this man (not to mention I found him DEVASTATINGLY handsome). He serves as a prime example of one who believes in using their platform to positively impact others. I'm glad to see that he received it, although I do believe that he, like many, should have won an Oscar competitively long before now. Enjoy, my fellow classic movie lovers!
  24. Initially one of the items on my bucket list (I actually have one) was to watch every picture that has won the "Best Picture (Production)" award from the Academy. I have now watched 82 of 86 of them. Now that I have come close to achieving my goal, I have started watching every movie ever nominated for the "Best Picture" award. I have created a spread sheet and am actively working to watch all 512 movies. I am wondering if anyone out there as done this. I have been working on it since approximately January, 2014, and have around 140 more movies to watch. I would love to be able to discuss this "quest" with anyone who is also doing this or has achieved this. Please respond and I will definitely get back to you! Thanks!
