Re: This Is the END

Ha!!!!!!!!!! Jackie.. I kept waiting and WAITING for poor Tybalt to get up too! (I was half expecting them to all leave.. and then he would sit up and say, "Hey.. where did everybody go?" :lol: Too funny. After seeing that I feel certain we need to consider Tinker's recommendation (from The Princess...

Re: This Is the END

Hello, Lucky.. thanks for raising the bar bringing up WAR and the way death (from war or battle) can be portrayed on film. I think we MUST make it an "even dozen" and add category #12: War Casualties (pick a war, any war) And yes.. I agree with you about the scene from GWTW.. it is overwhelming. It ...

Re: This Is the END

Did someone already mention Ian Hunter in The Long Voyage Home? SPOILERS I really love his storyline in the film, even though he bites the dust early on. I love how the buildup makes you think, along with the rest of the crew, that he is a Nazi spy, when in reality his secret is that he was an alco...

Re: This Is the END

Hello there ladies!! Miss Maven.. thanks for chiming in!! I enjoyed your additions to my ongoing list. I think we for SURE need to at least add a subcategory for the "TOO GOOD FOR THIS WORLD" group to allow for the young and "Innocent" to be sure! That poor sweet Elizabeth Taylor in Jane Eyre.. agh....

Re: This Is the END

He really was an arrogant chump. :lol: ...

Re: "THE END" - HAPPY or SAD??

Thanks for understanding, Miss Maven.. and thanks for your kind comments too. So far I have not gotten any takers, ha.. but I DO confess, it is not a topic most folks will see a lot of "chat value" in, perhaps. ha. I just had to find an outlet for my mental chain reaction, I guess. :lol: At any rate...

Hello Mr. Nollen, As the least educated among most of the folk who post here (at least in terms of facts and personal info about all three "bad" men), I won't trouble you by asking you anything..

Re: Little Women

I went in and looked it up.. and I remember a conversation between (I think) Mr. Movieman and FrankGrimes in my "Noir Walk" thread at TCM about how shockingly violent parts of this movie were.. yeah, that Mary was doing quite a job if she was going back and forth between those two...I bet Marmee was...
