I've od'd on popcorn. If I cut myself right now I'd bleed melted butter. And, I can officially say I have a new appreciation for Turner Classic Movies because as of late, I have been on a serious movie kick. As it turns out a lot of the older movies from the Yahoo! list that I mentioned in a previous post, have been scheduled on TCM. Of the 100 films...I have about 60 that I haven't seen.
So... aside from The Graduate, which I watched earlier, In the last week or two, I've had a chance to screen:
- Annie Hall (Woody Allen at his most neurotic)
- Blazing Saddles (which if you haven't seen is absolutely hysterical)
- Grand Illusion (a black and white French WWI film)
- Double Indemnity (highly recommend)
- Maltese Falcon (...when you're slapped, you'll take it and like it. Humphrey Bogart was a pimp!)
- Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (Redford and Newman in the same movie--enough said)
- Nosferatu (the original Dracula movie)
- Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepurn. Such a lovely actress)
It crazy...watching these films, you gain a new appreciation for what makes a good movie without all of the glitz and glam and overkill. It's sort of the same effect as listening to older music. So, I'm no Siskel and Ebert (or Ropert) but I'm not doing too bad either...lol.
PS...My goal is to have the complete list done maybe by the end of the year or at least 1 year from when I put it on the list.
