Recommended Posts

I never get tired of watching number 23, 21 really made an impression on me, 28 always gets some laughs out of me....but I absolutely LOATHE 30, which pains me to say since I usually like John Goodman.

Interesting that it ended up being Liz Taylor's last feature film.

Sad is more like it. I hate it when a great actor or actress end their career on a sour note with a really lousy movie.

I think #27 is the only one I haven't seen.

It's one of Julie Andrews' best. It's interesting to see her do a spy thriller. It feels like a Bond film in some regards. There are some special effects (an explosion sequence) near the end of the story.. it's very well done for something made in the mid-70s. Blake Edwards wrote the screenplay and directed it.

I've seen 23, 25, 28, 30.

I especially love 25, I do enjoy a good melodrama--especially the Douglas Sirk ones.

Thoughts on THE FLINTSTONES movie...did you like it? It actually made a lot of money at the box office.

I think we rented it when it came out. I don't remember disliking it, but I was also 10 when it came out.  I haven't watched it since, so I'll say it definitely wasn't a film I needed to see again. Though I do remember liking John Goodman, Rick Moranis, and Elizabeth Taylor.

Rick Moranis was a bonafide movie star in the late 80s and early 90s. Whatever happened to him?

If I'm remembering right, I think his wife passed away and he paused his career to raise his children.  His children have got to be grown by now, so maybe we're in for a Rick Moranis renaissance.

Despite various flaws in the film overall, Andrews is good in TORN CURTAIN (1966), her other 'spy' film.

Thanks. I tend to forget she made a Hitchcock film. 

By the way, THE TAMARIND SEED is currently on YouTube. Excellent print. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the info. I read his wiki page and it seems like he did step away from Hollywood for the reason you describe.

The ones I haven't seen are About Mrs. Leslie and The Night Walker.

I confuse All That Heaven Allows with The Magnificent Obsession. I've never been a fan of Douglas Sirk movies (Ducks to avoid the tomatoes).

Steve Martin was wonderful in Roxanne.

There's currently a nice print of ABOUT MRS. LESLIE on YouTube. 

Both Sirk titles you mentioned have been put on DVD by the folks at Criterion.

The Blu-ray for ROXANNE is available at TCM Shop and it looks like there's a $5 discount at the moment.

I'm going to look for it, and I'm also intrigued by The Night Walker.

Thanks!
