TBD on Ning

Okay, so if you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring 3 movies with you to watch over and over (yeah wind up dvd players or solar batteries or something, okay!?!) what three would you bring with you?

The Court Jester
Roman Holiday
Love Affair (Yes, the one with Warren Beatty, I know its a contraversial pick, that's the point!)
The Court Jester is hilarious - I haven't seen the Warren Beatty one yet, but am not generally too much of a romance person. I think Roman Holiday is an interesting pick - you get two great stars but neither in my favorite performance by them! I'll definitely check out Love Affair! Thanks!
I'd choose Stagecoach for the John Wayne movie - I love that one. Claire Trevor is just so wonderful and who can forget Thomas Mitchell as drunk old Doc Boone! And John Carradine as the Southern gambler what a great film! I'd choose The Big Sleep instead of MF. I just love the chemistry between Bogart and Bacall! Key Largo is good, but so is To Have and Have Not!

The Maltese Falcon, Key Largo, and some John Wayne western. (many to choose from..)- Steve Macon-

I agree with The Big Sleep because it's controversial in that, to this day, people can't tell you the detailed plot and why and who?  I just like the interiors of the murdered guy's house and the rich old man's.

Assassins with Antonio Banderas and Sylvester Stallone.

Love, Actually would be the third choice.

Those are such unusual choices, CN! You are certainly right about the Big Sleep - although I'm pretty sure I have it ALL figured out! (wink!)

The World, The Flesh and The Devil

The Big Sleep

American Grafitti


Interesting choices, Falcon! That first one is a much forgotten post-apocalyptic film! I'm not sure how many times I would want to see it, but it is certainly a film worthy of seeing! Inger Stevens was  a beautiful woman. I am still saddened by her death/overdose! Of course the fact that she was secretly married to a Black man adds significance/irony to this film too.

Every once in a great while Turner Classics shows The World, The Flesh and The Devil.  Interesting Inger Stevens was married  to a Black man....back then that would raise more than eyebrows. She was very beautiful.

I like those shots of an abandoned downtown NYC.  The film was shot on weekends mostly on Sundays for all of those downtown shots, where it actually was that deserted!

I would bring "The Stuntman" because I do believe there is a better way to get home for Thanksgiving.

"Ship of Fools" because I could never hit a curved ball on the outside corner.

And maybe..."Shadowlands" because Debra Winger does a much better job of dying in this one than she does in any other one.

Wait...I can't leave behind my George Romero films or my Steve Buscemi...or my Coen Brothers...and I would have to have "To Have and Have Not".

I think I'll just bring a Netflix subscription.

Maybe you could just bring "The Ship of Barton Fink has or has not  shadowlanded the Night of the living big Lebowski Dead."  I think that should keep you occupied for a while and if not then you should watch "Terms of Endurance" repeatedly until you appreciate the nuances of Debra Winger in her death throes.

Tons of Endurance...yes, I've sat through it.

Whoops Imeant Endearance - I guess that was a Freudian slip!
