> Our Grapes Have Tender Leaves

 

Do you mean "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes"? It is a lovely movie. One of the first movies I saw that Edward G. Robinson wasn't a gangster. It sure gave me a whole new perspective on him. It's certainly a film the whole family can enjoy.

Slime People, The Mole People, Hercules VS. the Aztec Mummy, Gamera..Battle for the Planets( I find the deep morales of this film and wonderous FX always enthralling) UltraMan the movie. SpiderBaby, with Lon Chaney jr.(another beautiful fairy tale done with loving care...well until the milkmans ear gets cut off). Dracula vs. Billy the Kid, what could be better, westerns mixed with gothic horror, always a winner in my book. My list is infinite, so I had better quit while I am ahead.

Some common favorites would also be at the top of my list:

Casablanca (great dialogue!)

Singin' In The Rain (it's just fun to watch)

The Godfather

any movie with William Powell and Myrna Loy tossing one-liners.

 

And maybe a few of guilty pleasure favorites:

The Magnificent Seven (incredible score)

The Dirty Dozen (Lee Marvin rocks)

Goldfinger (nothing defined cool like James Bond if you were a boy in the 60's)

 

And maybe about 500 more films (conservatively).

I really can't narrow it down to one movie. Here's a list of just a few of the many movies I consider my "favorites."

 

Citizen Kane (1941)

Mrs. Miniver (1942)

Rear Window (1954)

On Golden Pond (1981)

A Christmas Story (1983)

Out of Africa (1985)

Dances With Wolves (1990)

It is very tough to nail down one or two movies as your absolute favorites, particularly for me, because I love so many great films.Vertigo is Hitchcock's artistic masterpiece, It's A Wonderful Life is Capra-corn with a twist and Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas is ridiculously good filmmaking. However, there are, in fact, two films that I am extremely fond of. Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, and Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, to me, are complete mastery of the craft. The former, an epic of spiritual, as well as visual qualities, the latter, the perfect example of "film-as-art," and "film-as-entertainment." It's only fitting, considering the fact that Hitchcock and Kurosawa are my two favorite directors.

I agree, Steve McQueen was definitely cool. But to me he was more of a rebel cool. Sean Connery was suave cool. I guess you need exposure to both to have a well rounded coolness!

 

"No, Mr. Bond, I want you to die." For myself, I'll take the Austin Martin over the Mustang (though I love and have owned Mustangs).

 

Happy holidays!
