1. A Boy Named Charlie Brown- "Owning 10% of Charlie Brown is like owning 10% of nothing!"
2. Crazy Love- Documentary about a guy who threw acid on a former girlfriend's face, blinding her. Pretty interesting.
3. Wristcutters: A Love Story- Quirky little story. Liked it a lot.
4. District 9- Liked this a lot. Pretty different.
5. The Maiden Heist- Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken and William H. Macy. Very cool quirky indie-type film. Don't know if this just got a limited release or we just weren't paying attention, but this was really good.
6. Julie & Julia- LOVED the Julia stuff, didn't care one way or the other about the Julie stuff. Meryl Streep really can do anything.
7. The Rare Breed- Jimmy Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, and Juliet Mills. Brian Keith plays what has to be one of the inspirations for Groundskeeper Willie
8. Cover Girl- Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly. Pretty cute, if predictable. Phil Silvers and Gene made the movie. Rita was just the pretty face.
9. Big Fan- Um...good, but creepy. Sports Obsession taken to the extreme. Patton Oswalt was really good in this.
10. Zigfield Follies- You have let me down Turner Classic Movies! Let me down! Somehow hearing that William Powell was "playing" Zigfield made me think that this was a movie about the follies, not a bunch of folly skits....sketches...whatever. They were okay and all, especially the Astaire/Kelly number, but not what I was in the mood for. Guess there OTHER movie where William Powell plays Zigfield is the movie about the follies.
11. Moon. This was good. Really well acted, liked the Compy played by Kevin Spacey and a smiley face quite a bit. Skip the short film that's also on the DVD though. It's not super short, and not that good. No idea the director was David Bowie's son til I IMDB'd it later
12. Taking Woodstock- I liked it. Freaking loved Liev Schriber.
13. Roman Holiday- TCM on Demand. Very good. Kept wondering who the friend was. Looked him up, he's the guy from Green Acres! Gregory Peck was awesome. Audrey Hepburn was awesome. Pretty much made me want to run away and play around for a whole day.
14. Pinky- TCM on Demand again. Part of Black History Month. Man, racism sucks.
15. Pop Star on Ice- Johnny Weir's documentary. Really interesting. I guess Sundance aired it as a precursor to his reality show. I think that Johnny really got judged at the olympics based on his off-ice antics as equally as his performance. It's funny, at one point Johnny's mom is comparing Johnny and Lysacek and she's talking about how Johnny is more artist, and Lysacek is more athlete, and that's the same complaint that Plushenko had with the Olympics, that he was the athlete and Lysacek was the artist.
16. Full Grown Men- We watched it for Judah Friedlander and Amy Sedaris. Amy was in it for approximately 3 minutes, and Judah couldn't save it from the annoying twit of a lead. I didn't like this at all.
17. 13 Going on 30. Caught this on the FX HD channel while I was feeding and playing with the baby. Wasn't awful, wasn't great. It was good for something do have on while doing other things.
18. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Really cute, liked Steve the monkey.
19. It's Always Fair Weather- Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse. Really good. Kelly doing a number on rollerskates was amazing.
20. Parnell- Clark Gable, Myrna Loy. Not sure if this was a true story or not, but it was about an Irish Politian (Gable) who falls for a rival's wife (Loy). It's really bad because he's like the only Irishman who would convince England to give them Home Rule...or something. Not a great movie, not a terrible movie. AWFUL accents...for the parts where they tried to do accents. Gable and Loy do have a fair amount of chemistry though.
21. Lars & the Real Girl- Cute, better and less creepy than I thought it was going to be
22. FairyTale: A True Story. Only stoped on this because I saw Bill Nighy. I don't know why I stopped, he's been in more bad movies than good
23. Inglourious Basterds. Liked it a lot. Like Kwyj said, it wasn't nearly as gory or violent as I thought it was going to be. I guess they marketed it that way so all the dudes would go see it? Only had to close my eyes for 2 parts.
24. Will Ferrell You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush. The part with the nicknames was my favorite
25. The Pirate- Another Gene Kelly & Judy Garland pic. Judy wasn't really in this as much. Apparently it was one of her more drugged up/sickly periods. The last of Judy's movies that Minnelli directed. Kelly was awesome. SUPER handsome and all swarthy and stuff
26. Quality Street. RomCom from 1937 starring Katharine Hepburn. It was okay.
27. Royal Wedding- Fred Astaire's "dancing on the celing" movie. Good for the dancing, story was okay.
28. A Place in the Sun. Sad and so intense it was hard to watch. That said though, it was really good
29. Blue Hawaii. Elvis. Loved it. Too funny that Angela Landsbury was his mom in this. I looked it up later and she's only 10 years older than he was.
30. Poseiden Adventure- The original. Loved this when I was a kid, still liked it today.
31. Ratatouille- Not my favorite Pixar, but even that is better than soooo much else that's out there
32. the Goods Live Hard Sell Hard- Did they make this movie like 5 years ago, shelve it because it wasn't very good, then release it when The Hangover came out? Ken Jeong looks a lot different in this than he does on Community
33. Idiocracy- Awesome
34. Summer Stock- Gene Kelly & Judy Garland again. *love*
35. Jewel Robbery- Old movie with William Powell. Thought it was really funny they kept referring to the robber as this "dashing young man." I think William Powell was probably one of those people who never looked young.
36. Sherlock Homes- Liked it way more than I thought I would.
37. Meet Me in St. Louis- Not as much music in this musical as I'm used to. The Halloween night scenes were shot so cool.
38. The Awful Truth- Cary Grant and Irene Dunn want a divorce...or do they?
39. Shutter Island- Really dug it.
40. The Cooler- LOVED this. William H Macy is so awesome. Cannot believe that casinos really used/use this "cooler" method. But I can also totally see it too. Weird.
41. The Men Who Stare at Goats- I liked this a lot. Slow pacing, but in a good way. They really took the time to build it all up nicely. Loved the line at the beginning that said something to the effect of "more of this story than you can believe is true"
42. The Informant! Again, just a really good flick. Perfectly played by Matt Damon and Joel McHale and Scott Bakula.
43. Iron Giant- Can't believe I had never seen this. Really good heartfelt with actually animation. I sometimes forget how good animation looks. Makes me want to break out Disney's Robin Hood or Fox and the Hound or The Secret of NIMH or something.
44. 2001: A Space Odyssey. *in best Men on Film voice* "hated it"
45. Life with Father- Like Kwij said, William Powell and a crazy beautiful 14 year old Elizabeth Taylor in a supporting role. I had seen this when I was younger and always loved it. Held up well in my estimation. Just a really good wholesome sweet little movie.
46. Oklahoma. Weird seeing Shirley Jones with any hairstyle other than her super mod 70s shag/bob thing.
47. Crossroads- William Powell Heddy Lamar and Basil Rathbone (BR Day on TCM). Rathbone is blackmailing Powell for something he did in his past. Good stuff.
48. The Last Days of Pompeii, Basil Rathbone day on TCM.
49. The Shop Around the Corner. Belive this is the first of the movies like this. Also one with Judy Garland, and of course, You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks. This was the Jimmy Stewart version. Simple sweet little movie.
50. Picnic- This was great. William Holden and Kim Novak star. Heartbreaking.
51. The Mummy (1959)
52. Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964)
53. The Mummy's Shroud (71) Watched these Hammer films on TCM one night
54. The Mad Magician- Old Vincent Price flick. Not bad, not good. He's the bad guy (of course), but one you're rooting for
55. Andy hardy's Double Life
56. Andy Hardy's Blonde Trouble
57. Some other stupid Andy Hardy movie. TCM had Mickey Rooney day or something I guess. There were like 20 of these stupid movies. I guess they were popular. I don't understand why. Also don't get why Andy (Mickey Rooney) got all the hot girls. Esther Williams, Donna Reed, Judy Garland... Yeah, I'm not seeing it.
I'm pretty sure this catches me up, and I'm not duplicating anything on my list. Probably forgot some old movies, but you can't keep track of them all...well, you could, but I didn't.
58. James & The Giant Peach. Watched this forever ago on steaming Netflix. This was awesome.
59. The Long, Long Trailer Lucy & Desi. Classic. I strangely always thought it was part of the show when I was a kid. Like I thought it was Lucy & Desis (the characters) honeymoon.
60. The Neverending Story Also a Netflix streaming view I believe. Holds up well.
61. My Favorite Wife Irene Dunn & Cary Grant.
62. A Serious Man I really liked this quite a bit. Kind of weird, but I was expecting that, its the Coens.
63. The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Really liked it, but I like Wes Anderson. I think somebody else said at the time that it looked like Wes Anderson, just stop animation instead of live action, and that just about sums it up.
64. Love Actually. Annual viewing. Ugh. Cant believe the sheriff from Walking Dead was the one guy in this though.
65. The Hoax. Richard Gere plays the guy who faked the Howard Hughes biography in the 70s.
66. The Haunting. First time I watched this I had to turn it off because it freaked me out so bad.
67. Mad Money. Lame.
68. Date Night Im a man on bottom, if youre into that I thought this was hilarious. I think I went in with low expections though, since everybody else I knew said It was funny, but it could have been better
69. In the Good Old Summertime. 2nd of the pen pal who is the peson you hate, but you dont really hate them, you love them movies. Kwyj said we are not going to go for the trilogy and watch Youve Got Mail, even though its not that bad, and we both love Tom Hanks and Steve Zahn.
70. Some old black & white monster movie set in Rome. Involved a fishing village as the site of some rocket ship crash, and they brought back a creature. a CREATURE. Watched this on TCM or TCM on demand. tried to look it up, but couldn't find it. It was cheesy and bad, but fun. The fight between the elephant at the zoo and the creature was magnificent.
