    I love movies. But my definition of a classic

    rarely matches a critics view of a classic. People rarely mention movies that are extraordinary. For me. There are far more classics in the movies of the 20's and 30's than there were during the 40's and 50's. Thus. Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel and...

    Not Even A Genre, But....

    I love those British "B" movies they made in the late 60's, early 70's. (stuff like "Eye of the Devil" with Sharon Tate and Deborah Kerr. The Pit and the Pendulum with Vincent Price. The Shuttered Room with Carol Lindley and Gig Young). There was usually a castle involved...

    scene from a quantum leap episode where Scott Bakula was playing elvis. It was a really good scene. Well as usual on the internet, one thing lead to another and I found myself on his wife's wikipedia page noticing she played Teela in 1987 He-Man movie. WTF? How did I live to...

    A Classic Time

    As a little girl, my grandmother was one of my favorite people to spend time with. And one of her favorite things in the whole world was a good movie. I remember spending the night with her on weekends. The two of us would shoo Grandpa out of the den, get a cozy blanket, and pop...

    Donno if this is a "classic"

    but last night I watched 1981 Condorman What a rad movie. It looks like it was a huge budget movie. They built some cool props for it that couldn't have been cheap, and stunts all over. Also filmed on location which I love. It's sad that it didn't seem to get that good of...

    Why I Love Classic Movies...

    To me Old or Classic Movies are those made before 1970. Sadly, films from the 70's are like this fashion styles of the period- trash... Classic movies actress and actresses tend to be much better at their craft. And many were surprisingly versatile. Gregory Peck, James Stewart...

    My parents used to think I was weird

    because I spent my teen years glued to American Movie Classics. Now the channel offends me because they have the audacity to play films that came out when I was a kid and call them classics. lol

    I love the beautiful women of the silver screen

    but mostly during the golden era. Ah.... Claudette Colbert so beautiful, a gal any guy would love to marry. So sexy too in Cleopatra and The Sign Of The Cross. Rita Hayworth very sexy, the song and dance routine in Gilda was priceless. Grace Kelly so regal and beautiful, one...

    Quick hits on Spencer Tracy.

    Probably one of the most natural actors to ever hit the silver screen.Tracy defined acting by his great quote, "less is more." Please don't get trapped into judging Tracy by his movies with Kate Hepburn. He was a finer actor in other films. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner is the...

    Quick hits on two fine actresses.

    Claudette Colbert is probably my favorite actress. Everybody raves about It Happened One Night but it was just an okay film to me. The real Colbert masterpiece for me is Tomorrow Is Forever, never seen such heartfelt dialogue in one movie. Imitation Of Life is also a good one...
