Hi Penny. Thanks for mentioning that John Cusack movie. Somehow, I don't remember reading about it, but now I'll look for it. I'm going to rent the video of CHICAGO next weekend. Every single person I know who has seen it says it's excellent.

Hi Kar,

Oh, CHINATOWN is great! It's now on some of those "greatest movies of all time" lists. Although it has a tragic ending, it seems like a nearly perfect movie in every respect. Apparently, the screenwriter, Robert Towne, wrote the script with more of a "Hollywood ending," but Roman Polanski changed it so that "it would have meaning." I won't give any more details, just in case some readers here haven't seen it. I also heard Polanski say that if he were to film the movie today, he didn't think he would be allowed the liberties he was given back in 1974, when it was made. He said that most studios now would insist on a happier, "Hollywood ending."

Hi upshutter. You know, I'm embarrassed to say that I don't think I've seen a Monty Python movie. A friend of mine gave ALL of the Monty Python movies to her husband for his birthday. I think I'd better "get with the program" and start renting some Monty Python!

Hi. Everyone I know has been recommending CHICAGO, so I'm going to rent it in a few days. I've been staying away from A BEAUTIFUL MIND because I thought it would make me depressed. I saw ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST years ago, but I haven't seen it recently because I didn't think I could "take it" right now; however, I saw CHINATOWN recently, and it's very sad, but I was able to tolerate it. Hmmm. . .

Hi Dinah,
The only ones I'm familiar with on your list are REGARDING HENRY and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, and I liked both of them a lot. I saw another post of yours about Harrison Ford. I like him, too, although, I've been trying not to. I'm disappointed that he's become yet another mid-life crisis cheater who left his lovely wife for much younger "arm candy." But he's still likable on screen.

Hi gabbix2,

Ooooh! STRANGERS ON A TRAIN! Just the mention of it gives me shivers! I think Alfred Hitchcock's daughter was in that, wasn't she? If I'm not mistaken, I think she played the younger sister of the tennis player's fiancee.

I saw PONETTE and sobbed throughout the entire movie. It's such a good movie, but it was bad timing for me.

LOL. You should watch some monty python. Seriously the Holy Grail is good. So is Flying Circus. I'm laughing right now just thinking about it.

My favorite skits are the Hell's Grannies, Baby Snatchers, Lumberjack Song, and the Dead Parrot....LOL, Norwegian blue..lol. Sorry, those movies will put a smile on my face any day, any mood!

Hi Bekka,

> Hi Ted, I can't believe I haven't seen one of the movies on your list!! But the titles BIMBOLAND and PRIVATE DICK sound intriguing!

You haven't seen The Terminator? or True Lies? I thought they were classics....

"Nick Slick, Private Dick" has also been released as "Slick Honey". It is a porno satire of a Humphrey Bogart detective movie and quite funny (yes, my wife liked it too).

Another to add to the list is:

Best porno drama: "Three Daughters" produced by Candida Royale. Quite a good movie actually. Don't let the porno category turn you off, although it does contain explicit sex.


I saw Bimboland on television. It was great!
I know Testament, The Terminator, and True Lies were on televison.
I think The Life of Brian has also been on television.

Hmmmm.... Maybe you don't watch enough television?.... :-)

Oh, I loved Leolo too, although the very beginning did make me a bit squeamish about eating tomatoes for a while.

I didn't know that was Alfred Hitchcocks daughter, that makes sense though because I've noticed that she's shown up in a few of his movies.

I can imagine seeing Ponette would be anguishing during a bad time, it was sad enough to watch
during an okay time!
I was amazed at the little actress though, (whose name I've forgotten now).. I mean, how do you get a four year old to do that, especially at the end when she was trying to unbury her mother??

OH and I haven't seen any of the movies on Ted's list either! But then again I haven't seen Starwars.

hi fallsfall, can I ask what was 'What about Bob' about (something to do with a psychiatrist right? and also the one with Goldie Hawn?
I'm a little behind in my movies lol
I never heard of Butterflies Free. What is that about? I'm looking for some good movies to rent.
Thanks:-)

What About Bob is about a therapist who goes on vacation with his family. One of his patients misses him very much and goes to extraordinary lengths to be closer to him. It is a great one to watch while your therapist is on vacation. Bob does all the things that you want to do, but won't do because you know better. A must see (even if your therapist isn't on vacation)

Butterflies are Free. This one may be hard to find. It starts Goldie Hawn and Edward Albert (Eddie Albert's son). He is a blind man and they fall in love. I think it was a 70's movie, and I haven't seen it in years. My video store doesn't carry it. (see http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&cf=info&id=1800042820&intl=us)

Enjoy

 

Thanks :-) (nm) fallsfall

Romance with a twist, but I thought it was good.

Yes, that was Hitchcock's daughter in STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. Her name is Patricia Hitchcock. Alfred Hitchcock makes cameo appearances in many of his movies, too. He's often in crowd scenes. It's fun to try to find him.

Regarding PONETTE, I read that there was a lot of controversy when the movie was released because many critics felt that the 4-year-old child must have been manipulated and exploited by the director. They said she was too young to "act," so they assumed she had been manipulated into acting.

Hi blue professor. I haven't watched SECRETARY yet. I saw it at the local Blockbuster, and it does look tempting. . .

*************************************************
I just wanted to clarify what I wrote above. Patricia Hitchcock's role in STRANGERS ON A TRAIN was not a cameo appearance. It was a full role. When I said that Alfred Hitchcock makes cameo appearances in many of his films, that's exaggerating a bit. He'll just walk in front of the camera and often look straight at the camera without saying anything. It's not really a role; it's more of a joke, I guess.

I'd that about Alfred Hitchcock, Stephen King does the same thing.
I really did wonder about "Ponette" and what you said confirmed or 'reawakend' I guess, my fears.

I remember seeing an interview with a child star from the forties, and they did terrible things to get him to cry, like tell him his dog was dead.
And I hoped that kind of thing was banned, well it probably is, but when I saw Ponette I really had to wonder. Uggh, That changes my feelings about the whole thing now.

 

Further clarification. . .

Hi Gabbix2,

I really don't know whether the little actress (Victorie Thivisol) was manipulated or not. The director (Jacques Doillon) was accused of manipulating the child by his critics, who couldn't believe that a 4-year-old was capable of acting. Being accused of something doesn't make it true, however.

I finally found "Butterflies are Free", and it is as good as I remember. It should be in either Comedy or Drama.

I think I'll watch it again
