I had a hard time deciding---I have a list of ideas but always had My Fair Lady as my first pick. Since it is one I really enjoy, and think there's a lot to discuss & also seems like many of you haven't seen (per Letterboxd). BUT, it is not available to watch streaming anywhere or even to rent streaming on iTunes or Amazon. And I did not want to make everyone purchase it. So, maybe next pick if it's more accessible...

Anyway... I decided to go with another one that I do not think many have seen. And I have not watched since I was pretty young. I don't remember very much about it, but pretty sure I liked it? But curious to see if it holds up, since it seems to have mixed reviews on IMDB and Letterboxd. And has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 50%... so I am sure we will have plenty to talk about.

There was a remake of this movie recently (non-musical though). I haven't seen the remake yet since I wanted to rewatch this first....

My pick is :

Cool! I don't think I've seen it since it originally came out. Looking forward to it!

This is a movie I had on VHS as a kid. Watched it a lot, but honestly have no memories of it beyond it being kinda scary to 5 year old me.

Yes! Great pick! I loved this as a kid but had forgotten that I had until I saw the trailer for the remake, at which point I found myself weepy with nostalgia about the original version. I never saw the remake: did anyone else? I wonder if it'll be worthwhile watching that too for comparison (although of course the focus will be kate's pick).

The new one is okay, but kind of boring.

Also, I own My Fair Lady, but I haven't watched it since I bought it 4 years ago. So, you don't have to worry about me if you ever decide to go that route. ;)

Interesting pick - I've never seen Pete's Dragon. M tried to watch the remake recently, but ended up switching movies. Robert Redford looks good though.

I would have been happy with My Fair Lady too. It's one of those movies that I've seen bits and pieces of, but never from T to B.

I almost thought I found a solution last night-- there is a legit website that has it to watch/stream for free. But in checking if it worked ok, it seemed there's a spot early in the movie where it blacked out for a bit :(
So I was bummed after figuring that out cause I thought it had solved my problem.

Still think PD will be interesting to revisit / discuss though. So Im ok with it :)

It got great reviews from a lot of critics that I usually agree with. But that one baffled me.

I'm glad we're watching the original so I can see if it's just my childhood memory being wrong, but I feel like Elliot was barely in the new one (which was one of the reasons I didn't like it) compared to the original.

Anxious to watch now, since maybe I should have watched before I chose it..
