Some of the awesome (and not-so-awesome) films I’ve watched in the last several weeks…
Pete’s Dragon (2016) – It started out so good, with the songs and the scenery and all that, and then it devolved into stupidity and boredom. Plus, Wes Bentley creeps me out. (Ditto for Robert Redford.)
The Sheepman (1958) – Westerns + Glenn Ford = perfect combination. Shirley MacLaine is growing on me as an actress, too.
The Shop Around The Corner (1940) – My favorite Jimmy Stewart role of all time; he’s an absolute sweetheart in this! The story is fun and romantic and wayyyy too adorable.
North by Northwest (1959) – One of Hitchcock’s finest, though not a personal favorite of mine. James Mason is TOPS, though, and seeing Martin Landau in something other than Mission: Impossible was neat.
Darby O’Gill and the Little People (1959) – Boring. And there was that freaky thing near the end that makes you wonder just how sane Disney was. Only thing I liked about this one was Sean Connery.
Pride and Prejudice (1940) – And all the Jane Austen fans say “What?!”.
The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) – One of my mom’s favorites and, like The Four Feathers (also 2002), I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It was dark and gritty and rather awesome.
