Snagged all of these for $15 at Replays when they were having a sidewalk sale.

How tasteful. :mrgreen:

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Not too shabby. Definitely a movie you can watch with your Mom.

Dial "M" For Murder. As is pointed out in the extras, this is basically a play done in one room, yet still suspenseful. Although done for 3-D, it doesn't have that "I'm pointing stuff at you!" feel most movies from this era have. Just a few things, but it's a good enough film to stand on its own.

Guilt Trip. Eh. An okay premise, and could have been really funny...one or two good moments. Seth Rogen is fine, and Babs Streisand handles the comedy well. As a matter of fact, I liked her more in this because SHE DIDN'T DIRECT! Someone else was in control and gave her whatever tips. Definitely a renter.

Mean Girls. Very funny, but makes me sad when I see how talented Miss Linds was, she's so bright-eyed and lovely. One hopes she can have some turn around ala Robert Downey, Jr. But I doubt it.

Rocky Horror Picture Show. Watching it by yourself may be odd, such a shared experience, but this is the 35th anniversary Blu-Ray. Many extras, including commentary with Richard O'Brien and Patricia Quinn. Richard is at turns silly, serious and filled with dry, devastating wit. They're having great fun together. No Tim Curry, I'm afraid, BBP. Barry Bostwick appears on the making of the "shadowcast" featurette. Had no idea there was a UK version ("Superheroes" is included) and there was an alternate B&W opening.

It's the 40th anniversary of RHPS this year. I doubt Tim will be present, because of his stroke.
My DVD is the UK version, which has the B/W opening as bonus and the commentary with Pat and Richard anyway. Had a hard time making out what they're saying.
Isn't Superheroes great! It's one of my fav songs!

Years ago I saw a live performance of Rocky Horror, Gary Glitter played Frank n Furter.... :P

We still have a picture theatre in Auckland that has a regular midnight showing of the original RHPS, whenever I'm up that way I try and catch a show. Audience participation is encouraged almost everybody dresses up, they know and quote all the dialogue throughout the movie. During the storm scene the audience put newspapers on their heads and spray water at each other, during the wedding scene rice is thrown, all the songs are sung etc etc....Most times it's a full house and quite a party....There is a surprisingly high percentage of Frank n Furters at these events, who in the harsh light of day wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of fishnets and makeup....... :mrgreen:

BBP, I love Super Heroes, also! I believe it's on the soundtrack LP---well, it has to be, since I know the words! I liked Pat Quinn talking about the origin about the phrase "Hoopla!" Seems lion tamers at the circus would shout this as they cracked the whip to get the big cats to do their tricks. She points out a couple moments in the movie she considers "Hoopla!". Pretty funny if that's the actual origin. My copy has the B&W opening, trivia track, (written) comments from the 1981 RHPS fan club Prez Sal Piro, screen to show what to throw or hold over your head, etc. and shadow cast acting the film. I had all four going at the same time....veddy interesting.


Next movies....

Lincoln. Really excellent. I saw the ads with Tommy Lee Jones wearing that odd wig...of course, he can act his way out of a silly wig, so no problem there. I don't care if Daniel-Day Lewis stays in character all through the shoot, it gets results---he is amazing. Watched the featurette (what, no commentary?) and there's yummy Danny Boy. Excuse me while I swoon....

Quartette. Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon and Tom Courtney live in a home for retired musicians and singers (which sounds like the set-up for a joke.). Funny and bittersweet. Hey, two good "Mom" movies!

Harold & Maude. NOT a Mom movie. Still holds up, still has a wonderful story and soundtrack.



Had two "Who is that guy? I know him!" moments while watching the first two films. U.S. Grant comes on, and it was driving me crazy trying to figure out who he was. Waited for the credits, and it's Jared Harris! He was on Mad Men who was brought in from England and came to a very sad end. In Quartette, Andrew Sachs (Sacks?) is one of the cast......he played Manuel on Fawlty Towers!


The Hobbit---An Unexpected Journey. Good action sequences, and the young man playing young Bilbo is very good, but the dwarves are a little too cutesy and cartoon-y.
