"Lost" is so incredibly overrated. I watched the first season and then gave up when the second season went nowhere. I don't really think reality shows should be on that list either. I'll admit that I used to watch Survivor and American Idol, but I don't think you can compare them with great shows li...

Jon, I like the idea of having system that gives you the individual blogs, and a summary of them as well. That's fantastic. I hope it's not too much trouble to get it started, but I'm all for this! I like the message boards, but at heart, I've always been more of a journal/blogging type person. It's...

I hate to be a pestering nag, but if you have the time, go on over to the TCM boards and take a look at the Challenge voting thread (which is finally working!) and place a vote for one of the six, fantastic schedules that were submitted. The schedules were put together in this round by ChipHeartsMov...

Robert Wise marathon

Tomorrow TCM is honoring director Robert Wise's birthday by running a day long marathon his of movies. I'm looking forward to the majority of the movies that are being shown tomorrow, which I've never seen: Mademoiselle Fifi , Blood on the Moon (Robert Mitchum and Robert Preston!), Tribute to a Bad ...

I just saw this movie for the first time about a week ago! I know, I know. It's been on TCM so many times and I've had it taped and it fell into the "I'll watch it later" pile and now I'm so glad I did. I loved Cagney's performance, but I loved Edmond O'Brien's as well. It's amazing how fast Cagney ...

Re: The Blues Are Brewin'

Seriously, I have a huge t-shirt collection that may (someday) become a quilt...with a curious story. Ben, this idea intrigues me. What kind of t-shirts are you talking about - rock music t-shirts? The kind you get when you visit a different state? Ones with funny slogans? I've never thought about ...

I just don't like the tone of most of the posters. I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but it seems like the knowledgeable posters are also rather lofty and condescending. I don't mind being informed on things I'm not schooled on, but I do resent it being done in a manner that attempts to ...

Since this seems to be the "bad idea" thread--has anyone else heard the rumors to remake "The Wizard of Oz" with Natalie Portman in the lead role?

I'm not a fan of the original (two words: flying monkeys), but is that all Hollywood does these days? Churn out the remakes? Ugh.

I can set you up a blog on SSO if you like. I've been wanting to start something along those lines. I guarantee your stuff won't be deleted. You know, I think that would be a great idea. It would be fun to have it like the Movie Morlocks blog over at TCM with multiple posters, except they'd all be ...

I'm interested to see the original as well. The other night, TCM showed a 40 minute long featurette showcasing scenes from the remake and let me tell you, 40 minutes was enough. I was ready to scratch my eyes out. I think it's Petula Clark: the only other musical I've seen her in was "Finian's Rainb...

Nope, the offending one is still there. I'm really, really PO'ed that the jerks have come into the Challenge thread. And I'm even more PO'ed that TPTB deleted yours, Chris and left the rude ones up! It's as though they're encouraging the bad behavior. It's okay to offend posters who have been on the...

I can't answer about "Cover Girl" but did Rita sing any of her own songs? I have a good studio version (as opposed to a version ripped from "Gilda") of "Put the Blame on Mame" and I always thought it was Rita singing it. Now I feel silly for thinking that, especially when I know she was dubbed in al...

I know of a few for whom it is regarded as a very entertaining movie, or maybe a "guilty pleasure". I don't have any guilt about enjoying it---I think it's a lot of fun! Gregory Peck is terrific as an all-out heel, and so sexy at it! Jennifer Jones dragging at his heels is something that has to be ...

I've read through this entire thread and now I'm depressed. I'm with everyone about the animals theme. There's one Disney movie--I think it's Homeward Bound --where the dogs can talk to each another. It's one of the last scenes, where the oldest dog (voiced by Don Ameche) has to try climbing up to h...
