Recommended Posts

screen-shot-2019-11-21-at-9.57.07-am.jpe

Michael Rennie's in it too isn't he, and is the only one not in yellowface, right?!

Isn't this a still (ironically) from the movie The Day The Good Earth Stood Still ???

(...okay okay, they can't ALL be gems here, ya know!)

You mean like all those times I've asked why there's no Santa Claus in that musical "Miracle on 42nd Street"?!!!

Oh that's great! You should start a thread on these crazy mixed-up titles of yours.

I thought that was probably The English Patient. Yeah, I've seen it (and am one of the few who liked it).

I enjoyed it too. I saw it as a modern sort of A FAREWELL TO ARMS. I thought Minghella was an excellent writer-director.

I liked it too, Lawrence.

(...but yeah, we are of the minority opinion on this, it seems)

Actually I like to change my opinions on 123 and 124....they are indeed really great films and deserve their status as classics.

BTW, nothing wrong with liking THE ENGLISH PATIENT. I just hope there aren't dire consequences for those of us who hated it, like poor Elaine in SEINFELD, who was alienated from her friends and boyfriend and even fired from her job for hating THE ENGLISH PATIENT, lol.:P

Most of the people I've spoken to/heard from about The English Patient hated the film. Other than the fact that it won the Best Picture Oscar, the only people I've ever met who say that they've liked it are a few people on this website.

I first saw THE ENGLISH PATIENT in early 1997 when I was living in South Korea as an English teacher. It was a very popular movie in Korea. In fact, I would say that THE ENGLISH PATIENT, ROMEO + JULIET (starring Leonardo DiCaprio) and EVITA were the most popular Hollywood releases in Korea during that time.

I'm not even sure if I saw that one and if I did it was forgettable. I remember the Seinfeld episode about it more than anything about the film itself.

I love 123 and 128.  I've also seen 122 and 124. 

I absolutely despise Annie.  Annie is one of the most irritating characters in movies. I did love Carol Burnett in this movie because she was mean to Annie.

OK,, missed commenting for a few days.

I've seen.... 101,102,103, 107,109,110, 111,112,115, 116,118,119,120, 121,122,123,124,126,127,128,129, 130, 131 (Star is Born 1937, right?), 132 (if its How Green Was My Valley), 135, 137,138,139, and 140.

Lawrence, I'm with you on The English Patient. It's a wonderful film, and I do think its reputation is beginning to rise a bit again. i think it was hurt for years thanks to the Seinfeld episode and that it won over Fargo, but I think people are rediscovering how good it is.

Been out of town, so I've missed several of these. I believe I've seen eight of the films in the 120's, which would be the most I've seen in any grouping of 10 so far.

In the 130s, I've not seen Winchester 73 or The Rose Tattoo and only parts of What's Up, Doc? and The Shootist. So, only six out of 10.

I've seen #132 How Green Was My Valley (what a bore that film was) and 133. 

I tried watching Janet Gaynor's A Star is Born, but at that time I found Gaynor annoying and didn't finish the film.  I should probably give her another chance.
