What? You haven't even watched The Crimson Kimono or Screaming Mimi yet? I'm shocked to my garters!

I think a lot of folks who caught *MIMI* for the first time last May must really have been caught off guard. A gaudy mix of terror and noir with equal measures of Hitchcock and Castle on a dimestore budget---and unlike any B picture seen before (or since).

Well, as a first timer, I would just like to quickly note that first, having given birth on 2/8/08, I missed so many of these, more than half., so my list obviously only reflects the favorite 10 of THE ONES I SAW. Had I seen them all, I conceivably could have ended up with an almost completely different list. Secondly, I feel that it is somehow unfair in a sense, to include films that premiered on TCM on my list, that I really liked, but had already seen, some many times over. - and I know I 'm not the only one who has seen many of the films. Those I'll asterisk. SO - with these qualifications in mind, only you folks can determine the appropriateness of including my list as fair data for your 'Award's for 2008.

 

1. TARGETS * (68) - I liked the natural-sounding dialogue and acting-style;: we have Bogdonovich 's writing and direction to thank for these. Karloff's Orloff is sympathetic and endearing. An awesome 'freshman' effort, imo.

2. MIDNIGHT EXPRESS *(78) - One of my favorite movies of all time, its on EVERY list!

3. THE STEPFORD WIVES * (75)

4. CAPRICORN ONE * (78)

5. THE CRIMSON KIMONO * (59)

6. A MAJORITY OF ONE * (61)

7. THE DUNWITCH HORROR (70) I love seeing starlets from the 50s & early 60s 'grown up', but still very beautiful. I also love cheesy horror films!

8. SPIRITS OF THE DEAD (68)

9. EASY RIDER * (69) - a modern classic

10. THE FILE ON THELMA JORDAN (50)

Nope, no shooting...I'll just give you a New Year's kiss and share my laryngitis with you. ;)

Here is my list, the first the films that I enjoyed because I liked them;

( in no real order.)

1 The Ghost Train / A classic thriller, mystery of they type no longer made.

2 Macbeth / A stylish adaptation that retains a sensibility of live theater.

3 Radio Days / My favorite Woody Allen movie.

4 Thunder Rock / Flawed but a wonderful concept and well acted.

5 Raffles / A classic pulp and radio character brought to life in a snappy adventure.

 

My list of films that I enjoyed because I should not have liked them;

( in no real order.)

1 The Incredibly Strange Creatures... / I am a sucker for bad dance numbers.

2 Screaming Mimi / I am a sucker for really bad dance numbers.

3 Blacula / This is horror film history, which is great and awful at the same time.

4 Monster A Go-Go / Go-Go would lead one to think some action takes place, it doesn't.

5 Monster A Go-Go / So bad it made the list twice, there was nothing right about this film.
