Fasten up, kiddos. Below are my totally insightful, mind-blowing, rock em sock em insights on Hollywood's Best...
This movie is NOT on Netflix. How insane is that? I thought Netflix had everything. So, have to see if I can find it Blockbuster or by other means. Stay tuned.
Toy Story (#99)
How clever! I just giggled at how cute the plot was, how some of the jokes were clearly targeted for the parents and how breathtaking the graphics are. Talk about something we are getting used to and taking for granted...computer generated graphics.
Yankee Doodle Dandy (#98)
My beloved black and white movies! My most sacred of patriotism! How in the world did I miss this movie?!? I can not believe I have never seen it (and I can't believe I am admitting it). The very minute, the very second that movie was over, I downloaded the soundtrack. I look forward to annoying my landlords upstairs by cleaning to this very, very soon. As impressive as the plot is for this movie, I was equally as impressed with the set design. I loved the scene where James Cagney is in one of his plays as "Yankee Doodle Dandy (Boy)" just got thrown out of the English horse race for throwing it. As all of his friends board a boat for Londontown, the group breaks out into "Give My Regards to Broadway". The way the art director made the ship "sail away" then fired off the "skyrocket" is so impressive and interesting, especially for what one would assume is appropriate for the time period of the movie.
Do The Right Thing (#96)
Just in case you didn't know, this is a "Spike Lee Joint". Not to be confused with a "Shelby Galatorie Wine Glass". It is an interesting movie full of controversy and contradiction and societal flaws. You will definitely have an opinion at the end of this one.
The Apartment (#80)
What a cute and racy movie. I couldn't stop looking at the head boss and thinking "But you are the dad from THE Shaggy Dog for the Love of God!" If your about my age and your only knowledge of Shirley MacLaine is from "Terms of Endearment" or your knowledge of Jack Lemon is from "Grumpy Old Men" then GET. THIS. MOVIE. NOW. Their chemistry is fantastic and their acting superb. Good date movie. Creative way to strain pasta. (Bruiser's eyebrows raised instantly as in to indicate how genius he thought this was. Cute for Jack Lemon. If Bruiser pulled that move, I'd remind him there is an Ikea down the street. Go get a colander, mkay, boo.)
