hehe Martha - I too did watch Guess Who .... the other day - I had to get something straight - "quote game" :giggles:
This weekend I watched Shadowboxer with Helen Mirren and Cuba Gooding - what a strange but beautiful film - a very different kind of love.
And in a totally different genre - Happy Feet with cute little Mumble as well as Eight Below. If you haven't seen the last and is an animal lover and not build as near to the water as I am - can only recommend it - it is an amazing film.

dreamer, I am loving your new signature btw. Meant to say it in another thread but got swept away with conversation topics haha.. great picture!!
I saw Old Dogs which was a good family film (last week) and Sherlock Holmes today which I think Amber should write a review about because she has better knowledge of the whole S.H thing lol but I thought it was alright, a bit long but I'd recommend it to anyone who likes adventure/crime/drama/British based films. Great scenery of beautiful London.
Right now I've switched things down to a more light note watching some British comedy in Absolutely Fabulous. Need something light after the Holmie

Last week I went to 'Its Complicated'. I thought it was good, some laugh out loud till you cry moments but it got a bit long. It might have felt that way to me because 1/2 through I really needed to use the bathroom (Note to self: don't drink 3 glasses of water at dinner before a movie). I liked the movie but I would say wait for the DVD.
a surprise of a film, watched at the gym .. started part of the way through so i had to hunt for it on imdb when i got home .. NO HIGHWAY (1951) with .. get this .. jimmy stewart, glynis johns, and marlene dietrich! little film of aeronautics researcher who spots a flaw in a plane design and has to convince the corporate mucky mucks to remove a plane from the fleet. the kind of film where the drama comes from a test being done on a plane's wing assembly. but geez ... these stars. in 1951. and luminous black and white. a yummy surprise indeed.

Oh Martha, I also have watched some great movies being at the gym and immediately IMDB'd them haha.. one of them was Fifth Avenue Girl with Ginger Rogers. Now I've watched it all on YouTube and soo glad I remembered the name of it or I never would have found it because I didn't recognise any of the co-stars LOL the movie you watched has a pretty freakin awesome cast there!! Now, weren't you rewarded for going to the gym that day!

Man's Castle, ST and Loretta Young. It's very charming, and I had never seen a Loretta Young film before (with all the stories about her and Tracy, and of course the whole Gable thing, I was curious to see what the fuss was about). She is very sweet in this. Spencer was great as usual, and overall it's a nice little gem.
Also, I do enjoy pre-code. Some of the subject matter definitely would not have happened even a year later.
Spencer did some interesting early movies...Mannequin and San Francisco are two of my faves.
attended the screening of the newly digitally refurbished A STAR IS BORN (the 1954 version, natch) at lincoln center's walter reade theatre on sunday. the 7pm showing.
i have loved this movie for decades. and loved the reconstruction done in 1983 (re-inserting excised musical numbers and reconstructing with found audio an extended plot sequence early in the story) ... and this stunning new creation? well, for garland fans you're gonna have a delightful time with the new DVD to be released in late june.
sigh. i'm still in a kind of cukor-garland-arlen A STAR IS BORN haze, gotta admit.

Oh lawd. Last night, Katie and I were tyring to find the appropriate film to commemorate Kate's death date (), and after rattling-off everything in our collective libraries [The Strange Love of Martha Ivers was the forerunner at one point. We went through EVERYTHING, I tell you.], we decided that BUB would be the best choice, as neither of us had watched the thing in, like, 2 years. I don't know how that's possible, but 'twas the case.
Except I only have a crappy VHS cop[ies], and my VCR is on the blink. So, I resorted to Youtube, where the COLORIZED version is available, but not the B&W film itself...?
Their skin. THEY LOOK LIKE THEY SUFFER FROM HARLEQUIN ICHTHYOSIS. When I'm watching BUB, I shouldn't be concerned if the key players need to wash away their rapidly-accumulating dead skin cells before the next shot. That's just gross.
Needless to say, I got far in long enough to see Boopie get socked in the head with a BOULDER, and then I conked out.

Oh, Amber, that's terrifying. Colourization is one of the worst atrocities dreamed up by the human race (and yes, I am including war with that). Ever seen TPS in colour? Everyone is bright orange, and Tracy gets married in this weird puce-coloured thing that could not in good conscience be called a dress. It honestly ruined my enjoyment of the movie for a good year. Also, Adam's Rib in colour...ewww. Everyone was vaguely green. Though in fairness, I did have a horrible television at the time.
As for recent movies, I just saw A Serious Man last night. It's a Coen brothers movie, and a bit slow-moving but very interesting- rich, sad, funny. Recommended.
Judy: All has changed on the Proboard....Not sure my reply got posted. Anyway, thanks for the notice, Evelien. I'm unable to access it. I can watch the clip of the woman flipping through the Kate books and talking about fashion - one of which is Rebel Chic :-)

CFK: So we all heard about Betty Bacall, I guess? Pretty rotten news, especially following so closely on Robin Williams. What a lousy week. Watched To Have and Have Not as tribute tonight.

Fran: I think the problem with actresses such as Bette Davis and Joan Crawford was that they played SEX SYMBOLS and did woman movies. They were sexy in their day and were the main love interests in the movie. When they got older those woman type movies were dead

Fran: Bette Davis made very different movies from Katherine Hepburn Hepburn. Bette was sexy. So was Crawford. They made woman type movies. Hepburn was the masculine feminist. When their looks went, so did their careers. Hepburn was never that type.

Angela: Personally, I like Bette Davis best she was "a woman for all season" she didn't mince words she did the role without having to apologize for creativity she musters to do the work. Also, she could look different without worrying about her appearance.

Angela: Personally, I felt Bette Davis was the "woman for all seasons" since she used all her creativity to make her artwork. As for Katherine she seems to sound the same - her voice didn't change. Granted she was good in Shakespeare which I give credit.
