Naturally, we'll need a place for question & commentary aimed at each other's movie lists. So here it goes...

Great idea, Rick, only I hope everybody has their teeth in straight - say Filmimplist and it might not be so good for the screen :wink:

Yes HoneyP, it's a mouthful. I'm happy to call this thread anything you like. No worries.

I have to agree with gil that The Third Man is excellent. One of my very favorite films--I like the zither music. I suspect most P-pers have seen it, as there are so many Graham Greene appreciators here.

I've been waiting to see The Corporation, if that's the movie that psycho-analyzes the modern corporation & diagnosis it as sociopathic. Is that the one bak? If so, why only three stars?

So Honey, a mighty turd for 9 Songs? Was it the sex, or the Franz Ferdinand performance?

Rick, I agree Ladyhawke is fun, albeit dated by the soundtrack - it's one of the kids (and mine) re-watchable films, mostly because of Matt Broderick's excellent turn as Philippe the Mouse, and Rutger Hauer in brooding mode (when is he ever other?), and Michelle Pfeiffer (to entice Mr. Col into watching).

Digger - me too I loved The Fisher King, saw it two or three times back when. Must try to find it to see if it's still as good.

Funnily enough, though I remember liking the zither in The Third Man at one time, I now find it irritating.

Oh yes, it is. I have waltzed in Grand Central Station with my brother. and although lots of people looked at us as if we were loonies, plenty understood the reference.

Cloudbusting is also fun - although I tend to do it clothed!

And the red knight is as ominous and huge and terrifying as it was the first time I saw it. RW's character's fear is palpable.

I like New York in June, how about you...

I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?...

Actually I prefer earlier in the spring, but best of all I like

Autumn in New York.....

Clothed cloudbusting sort of misses the point don't you think?
