Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

There's a reason I sometimes use black-and-white stills or sepia stills for movies made in color. It is because I am finding these on Yahoo Images, Google Images and on the IMDb. But often what's available are screen captures, from fans, that are a bit blurry. The black-and-white publicity photos released by the studios tend to be clearer. Though I do use iPhoto to sharpen the images, especially when the best thing available is a screen capture.

It's not a perfect science!

I've seen:

761 The Women

762 The Devil and Miss Jones.  I love this movie!

764 The Blackboard Jungle, I think I've seen part of this movie.

765 Sex and the Single Girl

766 The Jungle Book

769 A Fish Called Wanda, I think I saw this a long long time ago.  I don't recall much about it

770 Home Alone.  This is one of the perennial Christmas favorites, but I never seem to get around to watching it.  I have to watch White Christmas at least 4-5 times before then.  I have seen it a few times however.

I've seen them all this time. Dog Day AfternoonThe Beguiled, and The Devil and Miss Jones are my favorites. I never liked Home Alone, and I was disappointed when I finally got around to Joan of Arc and The Women.

I like The Women, but it  is very long.  I feel like they could cut some scenes out to make it a little better.  I love Rosalind Russell and Paulette Goddard in this film.  Norma Shearer never does anything for me, she's too hoity toity most of the time. 

Home Alone is okay.  The best part is with the Wet Bandits.  But I got so tired of the Macaulay Culkin impressions (even though I was only 6 when the movie came out, so they must have endured for awhile, for me to tire of them), and I've never liked the cloying nature of some of the scenes and the music.

And I get that traveling with a big family could be chaos, but I still find it hard to believe that you would not only forget your child at home, but wouldn't realize they were missing until you were already boarded on the plane and in flight.  Don't  you think you'd notice the kid was missing at the airport?!  I mean, Kevin would have had a boarding pass.

I agree with your comment about HOME ALONE's basic premise requiring a huge suspension of disbelief. But it's a comedy and I guess we're not supposed to think too hard. However, they could have already had the parents out of the country with him being watched by an elderly relative who took sick. Where it was hard to reach the parents, and the relative was in the hospital, with the boy lying to the police that a neighbor would look after him till his parents got back. Mainly because he wanted full run of the house and thought it would be fun to be home alone. Until the crooks show up. Etc.

Agreed.  There were more logical ways to get Kevin home alone.  All this really does is make the parents look completely negligent, when I don't think they were.  Then in the sequel, Kevin gets lost in NYC! I've only seen that movie once, so I don't remember the premise; but come on parents!

#771 = M (1931)

#772 = Act of Violence (1949)

#773 = The Killing (1956)

#774 = The Entertainer (1960)

#775 = Hitler (1962) - I haven't seen this one

#776 = A Clockwork Orange (1971)

#777 = The picture is from Freddy vs Jason (2003). Based on your usual format of listing these movies in chronological order, I'm not sure if this was your intended movie, though.

#778 = Schindler's List (1993)

#779 = The Dark Knight (2008)

#780 = Joker (2019)

 

MA Clockwork OrangeSchindler's List, and The Dark Knight are all 10/10 movies for me, among the all-time best, in my opinion. The Killing is also a favorite, and I liked Act of Violence and The Entertainer. The Friday the 13th movies are guilty pleasures.

I've seen:

771 M (I'd love to see the remake with David Wayne.  I think I have that on my DVR)

772 Act of Violence

777 I've seen Friday the 13th and Freddy Vs. Jason

779 The Dark Knight

780 Joker

I have The Entertainer and The Killing on my DVR.  I would like to see Schindler's List someday, but haven't yet. If I ever watch A Clockwork Orange, I'll probably watch it just to say I did. I am not anticipating enjoying  it.  I'm not a big Kubrick fan, though I did like Lolita

I've seen MA Clockwork Orange, Friday the 13thSchindler's ListThe Dark Knight and Joker, so six.  I've seen parts of Acts of Violence and The Killing, but not the whole movies. 

ACT OF VIOLENCE contains a lot of strong performances -- Van Heflin, Robert Ryan especially, Janet Leigh...and Mary Astor is swell as an aging prostitute. A far cry from her role a year later as Marmee in MGM's remake of LITTLE WOMEN.
