Re: BRIDESMAIDS

Hey Anne (and everyone else) First, sorry for not posting very much lately. I'm finishing up my last year of grad school and it's been murder. By August I should be back in full force, hopefully. Now I'm still trying to jump through all the hoops and prove myself so that eventually, I'll have a perm...

Re: Giallo

I'll be back to post more when I have time, but I did appreciate your list at the beginning of the thread. I thought I'd seen most of these, but I guess I still have quite a few to work through... and then some I probably should check out again. The problem with these films is that they're so simila...

Re: PRE-CODE HOLLYWOOD @ THE ROXIE in March

Just passing through and happened to see this... I recently saw some of Sylvia Sidney's precoders, including Ladies of the Big House, and thought they were quite enjoyable (the other one of note that I remember is Confessions of a Co-Ed). And both also managed to address serious issues of the time. ...

Re: Bad Movies You Love

Can anyone comment re: either Woman's World (1954) or Madison Avenue (1962)? I seem to remember seeing the latter but I can't remember. Both give me the impression that they might fit this category. I'm eager to finish with school so that I can finally sit down and enjoy several "so bad they're...

Re: NOT NECESSARILY NOIR II @ The Roxie Nov 4 - 8

This does sound like a very good show. Nov. 6 especially. Oh, if I were only out of school and had a better-paying position...

By all means, pay a visit to Columbus or Cincinnati sometime and host a marathon.

Re: Alfred Hitchcock Presents

I also like the Roald Dahl adaptations. I like Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel's Coat (which so many seem to dislike, for some reason), which unfortunately won't be released until Season 6 is made available, but I think this one may have been on YouTube at one time.

Re: Round 5 - THE FINAL - #5 Powell & #3 Hawks

A more distinguished and diverse group is hard to imagine. My presence contributes to the "diverse" part... :mrgreen: Looking back and considering Hawks' career a bit more closely, I suppose my vote should have been more difficult than it was (though after giving it some more thought, I w...

Re: Round 5 - THE FINAL - #5 Powell & #3 Hawks

Wow - well, I didn't envision Michael Powell offing Hitchcock.

The final vote was much simpler than I thought it'd be.

Re: What Horror and Sc-Fi films have you seen lately?

I just recently bought the two-disc Blu-ray of classic horror film The Exorcist and had my semi-annual viewing of the movie. I think it holds up surprisingly well, though I wonder about all those surveys that call it "the scariest film ever" - not sure what that says about our society. Fri...

Re: Alfred Hitchcock Presents

I love AHP. I own the first four seasons on DVD and season 5 has just been announced to be released early next year.

Season five contains one of the best episodes - and one you won't be able to believe passed the censors in the late 1950s - "Specialty of the House," with Robert Morley.

Re: Round 3: SSO Favorite Director #4 Wilder & #5 Powell

It really is no contest for me. Nearly all of Powell's films impress me in one way or another. And while I love several of Wilder's films, his later work leaves me cold. I could never sit through Kiss Me Stupid or The Fortune Cookie again.

Re: Coming soon DVDs and Blu-rays from the Criterion Collection

I've taken a break from DVD buying for a bit, but when Christmas comes around (which won't be much longer- yikes), I'll definitely be looking at the sales and hoping that some of the newer Criterion discs are marked down. I'm not sure if the new Seijun Suzuki Blu-rays will be on sale by then, but ho...

Re: Bad Movies You Love

I've only got one title I've been searching high and low for and haven't even found a seller online for it - A House is Not a Home (1964) , starring Shelley Winters. If anyone happens to run across a copy somewhere, or if you hear about it being scheduled on one of the many movie networks, I'd appre...

Re: Bad Movies You Love

Good news for bad movie fans (such as myself): One of the films on TCM's December schedule is George Cukor's rarely seen The Chapman Report (1962), starring Jane Fonda, Shelley Winters, and Claire Bloom. This one has been near the top of my "to find and view" list for a number of years, ri...
