In those days the best painkiller was ice; it wasn't addictive and it was particularly effective if you poured some whiskey over it.~ Gracie Allen
House of Bamboo - wasn't sure if this would be my kind of movie but I really enjoyed it - good storyline, great performances and fabulous on location filming.
Elegance is good taste, plus a dash of daring - Carmel Snow
War Horse. What an amazing flick this is. Wonderful adaptation to the Michael Morpurgo book. Joey...
Well, goin' pretty fast, looked behind, A-here come the devil doin' ninety-nine! – GV
Lady in the lake with Robert Montgomery. I'm not sure I liked watching this movie through the Marlowe's "eyes".
Murder, My Sweet with Dick Powell.
I've been watching a lot of the classics lately. A new one I saw yesterday is actually very good: War Horse.
Cowboys and Aliens
Stripped of the cunning artifices of the tailor, and standing forth in the garb of Eden - what a sorry set of round-shouldered, spindle-shanked, crane-necked varlets would civilized men appear. ~ Herman Melville
Continuing my early Crosby kick with "We're Not Dressing," possibly the best of Bing's early Paramount features -- any picture where the supporting cast includes Carole Lombard, Ethel Merman, Leon Errol, Burns and Allen, and a trained bear has to be something that deserves a place at the top of any bill. Another ration of great songs too, including "May I," "Love Thy Neighbor," "Once In A Blue Moon," and "She Reminds Me Of You," the latter hysterically sung by Bing to the aforementioned bear. Who says Crosby had to wait till the Road pictures to discover his absurdist side?
The humblest citizen in all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of error. -- William Jennings Bryan
Went to see Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows last night. I thought it was pretty good, although it was just a tad long and you really have to pay attention to follow the plot. Like most S.H. movies the fun part is trying to pick out all the clues in the first part of the movie.
