    Double Indemnity

    What was everyone’s favorite Noir line? Mine was: “They’ll hang you just as sure as ten dimes will by you a dollar, and I don’t want you to hang, baby.”

    Musical Mondays Week 45 Oliver & Company

    All Dogs Go To Heaven FUCKED me up as a kid and to be honest I'm still kind of afraid to watch it. It is BLEAK in spots

    Musical Mondays Week 45 Oliver & Company

    I haven't seen this movie in YEARS ! I had the vhs and was OBSESSED. I was a cat lady even as a wee lass. I haven't watched the movie for this week yet but I do remember loving Perfect Isn't Easy because I was also a dramatic bitch as a child. I still think it's one of the best underrated songs of Disney. I would post photos of my two kitty cats Godric and his son Albus but Earwolf sucks and won't let me. Every picture I have is too big apparently.Have a link to my cloud instead: https://www.amazon.com/photos/share/Tf28u1Tzc8CydjfNk1a8JMmSFcqBhAvGUV88uaimtgU Godric is the black and white and Albus is orange and white. They are purebred Turkish Vans and I got them nearly a year and a half ago because (I'm not making this up) Godric was getting beat up by the other cats at the cattery, mostly by his brother Ron Weasely.

    Double Indemnity

    Personally, I loved all the "babys." As I said on my initial Letterboxd review, I liked the movie for all the right reasons, but I think I loved it for all the wrong ones. I got so much joy out of how hard-boiled everything was. Everything Neff utters is pure brilliance. I also agree with you. As they said in the show, I feel like Neff (much like Eve) is playing a role. His life is kind of whatever, and when he this woman seems a little interested in him, he really pours it on. In my mind, all the "babys" and everything are complete artifice. He's pretending to be something he's not - or something he wishes he could be. (You've got to stop slumming over there on Facebook )

    Double Indemnity

    I'm not sure they talked about this in the episode, but I particularly love the subtleties in the final scene. Neff can't light his own cigarette, so Keyes does it for him (using the same trick Neff always used to light matches for him), then Neff says "I love you too," only not in the sarcastic way he did earlier. A small gesture of pure kindness/mercy, followed by maybe the most sincere thing Neff ever says to anyone else. Some folks on the Facebook group were annoyed about all the times Neff says "Baby," but to me this pretty clearly indicates how shallow he is and is wholly intentional. He repeats a supposed term of endearment so often that it becomes meaningless. Tells you his motivation is not really love, it's massaging his own ego.

    All About Eve

    RIGHT!? That actually blew my mind! Also then how do they explain Katharine's relationship with Howard Hughes? Didn't they have a long affair? Was that all for the press too!?

    All About Eve

    Also, the Hepburn-Tracy relationship was platonic? That changes so many things...

    Double Indemnity

    I think my favorite part was when Neff needed to cool off so he bowled a couple frames...and grabbed a beer a Drive-In restaurant. Oh, 1944, you so crazy.

    Double Indemnity

    Amy and Paul wondered why the movie was set in 1938 instead of 1944, and I wonder if maybe the studio was afraid audiences might not accept Neff - a healthy, thirty-five year old man - wasn't enlisted in the military. While still a few years from America actually entering the war, 1938 is conspicuous in being the year before WW II began. While Neff is never portrayed as a "good guy," he still needed to be someone that the audience could root for. If there was a hint that he might be a draft dodger or something, they might have been afraid that people would turn on him off him right off the bat..

    Brett, I saw this today for the first time and specifically joined the forum to share. Just picturing Besser's reaction is cracking me up too.

    Baywatch (2017)

    This movie was funnier than I expected going into it. It was pretty terrible and outlandish when you look back on it. The whole movie was just a giant "The Rock" sized dick joke. They made a fortune off this one so obviously it was not terrible enough in the first shot to not get a sequel.

    Your Updated AFI List

    Just browsed through my whole collection for ideas. Inception and Birdman are my only answers that fit the “post-2007” requirement. The other one that struck me was Back to the Future. For removal, I’ll probably makes some enemies for this, but I’d remove Chinatown and 2001 (although i’ll confess to only having seen the latter on the small screen, something I hope to change one day) for being overrated and Sixth Sense for not belonging on the list at all.

    Speaking of LGBTQ in this era, did anyone read Amy's article?

    Titanic

    Apologizes if someone already said this, but 5 pages of comments is more than I’m willing to go through right now: I believe the whole dispute about their being enough room for both of them on the plank was settled with “there was enough room, but it wasn’t buoyant enough.” Someone told me that Jack even tried to climb on board as well, but that it started to sink, so he got off of it.

    Troop Beverly Hills (1989)

    "With her marriage breaking up, Beverly Hills housewife Phyllis Nefler (Shelley Long) boosts her self-esteem by leading a local troop of Wilderness Girls. Although Phyllis' version of roughing it is spending the night at the Beverly Hills Hotel, that suits her privileged troop members just fine. Unfortunately, when Phyllis falls afoul of a rival leader, the girls are threatened with having their group dissolved -- unless they can prove their wilderness skills at the annual jamboree." THIS MOVIE AGED SO WELL. NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN BUT WAS A CHILDREN'S MOVIE. Rotten Tomatoes: 9% Google Users: 92%
