Started by Patti in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa 35 minutes ago. 173 Replies

Let's see how well we classic film fans know the names of the characters of the films we watch.  It's easy to play.  Someone names a character (well-known or lesser known character, but the lesser knowns will, of course, be more challenging).  The…Continue

I'm kind of surprised that the "Social Club" area doesn't get used more. I'm a member on several other boards that are subject driven but the social areas are the places where I get to know members more personally.So, I thought I'd open a discussion…Continue

Any classic dramas ever made you cry?

Started by Miss Kubelik in Classic Dramas. Last reply by Kimberly Oegerle Jun 28. 184 Replies

I don't cry at movies, as a rule, though I plead guilty to sobbing through the last 10 minutes of The Bridges of Madison County. I'm a hopeless romantic, what can I say?Have any of you ever choked up, even a little bit, at one of your favorite…Continue

Looking for a Good Cat Name (classic film-related)

Started by Rosie Sayer in Social Club. Last reply by Rosie Sayer Jun 23. 36 Replies

I'm getting a new cat, a Russian Blue. My previous cat, whom I gave to my son, is named Dashiell, sort of after Dashiell Hammett (who wrote The Thin Man and The Maltese Falcon), but also because I just liked the name. "Dash" also makes a good…Continue

What was the last "classic" movie you watched?

Started by Ktrek in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa Jun 22. 302 Replies

I thought I would add a thread to discuss the last "classic"  movie you watched. As opposed to just any movie. I might start a thread for modern films later. I would prefer that you post more than just a title.KevinContinue

    The Fog of Horror

    Later tonight, as in tomorrow morning on the east coast, TCM airs The Fog, the 1980 John Carpenter movie that, like a lot of John Carpenter movies, opened to middling reviews only to be heartily welcomed into the horror canon later.  This also happened with his 1982 remake of The Thing from Another World, this time […]

    Bowling for Dollars: Kingpin (1996)

      Farrelly Brothers movies are akin to family gatherings. They are filled with extreme neuroses, unexpected violence, and deep undercurrents of affection. Their films are even populated with friends and relatives from their Rhode Island home. Listen to any of their audio commentaries and you’ll find that half the actors are bankers and car salesman who […]

    Happy Birthday Fayard Nicholas

    A few years back, I was teaching the musical comedy when a male student remarked that he did not care for musicals because they were like chick flicks—too focused on romance and too filled with music that was old-fashioned. He did not find the production numbers with Fred Astaire from Top Hat to be particularly […]

    Stephen King Goes to the Movies

    A Night at the Movies: The Horrors of Stephen King (Laurent Bouzereau, 2011), an hour-long documentary with the iconic best-selling author, premiered three years ago on TCM and is being brought back this Saturday. The topics covered include the early horrors that both scared and inspired him as a kid, moving on to films like […]

    I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords

    So, in case you haven’t heard, there’s this movie called Phase IV. It’s a 1970s apocalyptic sci-fi thriller about killer super-intelligent ants, and it was directed by Saul Bass of all people. And instead of special effects, the killer ants are played by real ants, filmed in close-up by National Geographic photographer Ken Middleham. Either […]
