We just watched "Random Harvest" with Ronald Coleman and Greer Garson..

The movie channel has a feature when they ask a famous actor to pick out a few favorite movies and they show them.

This was Gene Wilder's choice... He was there to comment.            Gene is not looking so well. Sad

The movie was great....Trippy. Loved it.

It would be infinitely better if they were.  Perhaps they will start doing that next season.

Oops, I just realized this is the movie watching thread, not the general watching thread.  Forgive my failings.

It's weird how all these cults follow the same predictable paradigm, and yet I'm always fascinated by them. You wonder how people could be so gullible and mindless, but then you remember how many people vote.

This movie was confusing, slow-going, and peppered with brutal violence.  It was also visually stunning; some really great shots and editing.

My husband and I just watched Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood. 

I liked it. Not great, but definitely worth watching.

Mind expanding on this? because, personally, I find Gran Torino to be the best film I've seen ever, and my favourite as well.

Well, I definitely like the movie. I just didn't think it was great. It's been a while since I watched it, so I can't offer any specifics right now. But I guess I just felt that some of the portrayals in the movie didn't ring authentic. But I'm not easily satisfied when it comes to movies. Clint Eastwood is a good director though, and his movies are always worth watching.

Maleficient. I thought it was going to be just another typical Disney princess movie but it wasn't. I'm glad I chose it over Transformers 4. It was good but it did have some flaws.

The young one discovered Around the World in 80 Days (the Steve Coogan/Jackie Chan vehicle) two days ago and he's already watched it four times. After that, R.I.P.D. was even more fun than I'd normally consider it.

The other night I watched part of a movie called The Help.  I hope sometime to see the whole thing.  It seemed like a great movie.

There was one thing that seemed like an anachronism, though.  During the movie, a woman was typing, and then used liquid paper.  This took place in 1963.  There is no way she could have used that back then.  Did anyone else catch that?

It was otherwise very good.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid_Paper

In 1956, Bette Nesmith Graham invented the first correction fluid in her kitchen. Working as a typist, she used to make many mistakes and always strived for a way to correct them. Starting on a basis of tempera paint she mixed with a common kitchen blender, she called the outcome fluid Mistake Out and started to provide her co-workers with small bottles on which the brand's name was displayed.

By 1956, Graham founded the Mistake Out Company and continued working from her kitchen nights and weekends to produce small batches of correction bottles. She was fired from her typist job after she made a mistake that she did not manage to correct. She had typed in her company name instead of the bank's. After this stroke of bad luck, she decided to devote her time to her new company.

The inventor offered the product to IBM, which declined the offer. She sold the product from her house for 17 years; the name was changed to Liquid Paper shortly after. By 1968, the product was profitable, and in 1979 the Liquid Paper Corporation was sold to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million with royalties.
