In the same way that book lovers have a book of the month to read and discuss online could we not have a film of the month. Choice of film could be either by actor (eg Spencer Tracy) or by director (eg Woody Allen). We could watch the selected film and discuss various aspects and thus learn about some missed nuances (insider references for example.)

I'd like to encourage everyone to start a topic in the list and not just stand at the door! (GRIN!) (And Two Cents - Death Takes a Holiday is a great old film!) I'm starting a topic on movies on our must see lists!

I saw " The Night Of The Hunter" the other night. I had seen it once as a kid, maybe nine or ten. I had a neighbor that would let us watch whatever she was watching. That movie was way TOO adult for me at the time. It was still scary when I saw it the other night! What a movie..am looking forward to seeing it again soon.

One of my favorite classic movies is
"The Postman Always Rings twice", with John Garfield and Lana Turner. For back in the day when she came out with the white shorts, tied up blouse and turban ....that was very hot and procovative for back then. I love twisting story line. it took me a few times to get it. The Postman always rings twice. There was a postman in it!

L.J. I checked out your list. All good titles (from what I've seen).
I was glad to see that you included "The Return of the Secaucus Seven". That film sadly got lost in the shadow of "The Big Chill".

Alendar You are so right about George! (and others - Why do directors do that?)
Comment by Alendar on July 3, 2009 at 4:36pm
I loved these both. The "enhanced" version of THX by George Lucas was as usual, silly. Did I really need monkeys roaming around the parking garage? George has a knack for going back and kludging his own work up. Not sure why.

Andromeda: I really needed them to set the bomb off. Is there a rule against spoilers? I hope not. It's hard to discuss movies when you can't talk about em.
Wings of Desire - very intense. The american version was, though the whole point was mangled.
Comment by BrainW on July 1, 2009 at 6:33pm
THX was a classic, as was The Andromeda Strain.

I'd like to add the German film "Wings of Desire" to my all time personal favorites list. I'm a student of German existentialism.

And Steve, I saw the trailer for transformers 2 and I really want to see it too!We all have our guilty little pleasures! (Pssst - I think there will be a few explosions - hope I didn't spoil it for you!)And Absence of Malice was great - sorry we lost Paul Newman so recently!
