    Good Movies

    I'm catching up on my movie watching so I need a list of some movies to watch. Yes, I have a lot of time on my hands.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    It's a total bummer-outer of a movie story-wise, but everything else is incredible, including the cast (Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell, among others).

    City Lights
    Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (the real version)
    Rope
    Harvey

    And, despite it being something high school kids are forced to watch for English class, I really like the 1974 verion of "The Great Gatsby" with Robert Freaking Redford. Maybe it's because I love the book so much, or maybe it's the music, but I really like it.

    Have you seen many old movies? LIke Danny Kaye, Katherine Hepburn, Hope and Cosby road movies, 3 Stooges, Robert Mitchum, Cary Grant, Walter matthau?

    Walter Matthau was good in Hopscotch, A New Leaf, Cactus Flower, Fail-Safe, Ensign Pulver, Fortune Cookie, and that's just one guy.

    Have you seen Dr Strangelove?

    Matthau played some great (bad) bastids early on in his career....Fail Safe - over the top but creepy 60s nuclear Armageddon (Dr. Strangelove but not as good and not funny!) and Strangers when we meet - cool scenes when Kirk Douglas goes all apescheat on him and some sailor dude when they mess wid his wimmens
