My mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you.
Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942). I can see why James Cagney got the best actors Oscar. Seeing all those gangster flicks one forgets that he was a song & dance man. And with the smallest feet I've ever seen on a man. Had it recorded on the DVR, now I must own this one too.
Last night, I watched "Barb Wire", a 1990's sci-fi remake of "Casablanca", with Pamela Anderson playing Humphrey Bogart's "Rick" character.
Watching with that in mind, it was actually kind of entertaining, although not exactly "film noir".
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I rather enjoyed it. Yes, there are some elements that are missing that were in the book, but I tend to think of stuff like that as literary filler. Something that isn't crucial to the main story but is used to fill out the story a bit more. It was well put together and left me wanting to see the Deathly Hallows ASAP.
The Great Rupert (1950) apparently this was released some time later under the title "A Christmas Wish"
I enjoyed it. Favorite lines; Don't touch those cobwebs they my be holding the place together"
and another which goes something like
"I guess its better to have money coming down and nuts going up, than money going up and nuts coming down"
