    I just watched a German movie from 2005 called Antibodies. It was quite amazing, to be honest. I highly recommend it. You can watch it on Netflix streaming at the moment. As I was watching I was thinking "this is quite predictable, but it sure is keeping my interest" and then it wasn't really that predictable after all. I don't want to give too much away but if you like a good murder mystery thriller then this is for you.

    I came here to post about "Penny Serenade"; such an underrated, moving film.
    Grant and Dunne are wonderful; and Beulah Bondi, as well.
    Keep tissues handy!
    He got the first of his two Oscar noms for this....the second was for None But the Lonely Heart, which I have not seen. He pretty much played himself most of the time, but in films like Serenade, Notorious and a couple of others, he was quite capable of injecting nuance and pathos into his performances.

    For the thriller / action movies fans, here are two movies that are going to be released within 6-8 months that are absolutly great.

    The first one is pure action, violent and spectacular. It's the indonesian film The Raid.
    It's about a special intervention unit who attacks a building inhabited by a big drug gang.
    It's meant to have a cult following because it's really impressive and unique in that it highlights the indonesian martial art of silat.

    The second one is more of a thriller/action movie. It's the french film Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night). It's an intense, sweaty, smart thriller about a corrupt cop who has stollen a few kilos of cocain from a drug smuggler. The bad guy kidnaps his son and asks him to bring the drug back to his (huge) night club. The movie is centered around the night club with many actors converging there (the drug dealer, other drug dealers, the crooked cop, the police internal affairs section and some others) and the situation going from bad to worse. (here is a review of the movie by some guys who've seen it in Toronto last week).

    Both movies (which have not been released yet, outside of film festivals) are being sold worldwide and already talked about for Hollywood remakes. It's almost a done deal for The Raid. Which might not be good news for american viewers as Sony is holding the american rights AND is negociating the remake rights. In the past, it has sometimes meant the distribution of the original film would be delayed until the remake was filmed and released on the american territory. That can be pretty long. And I wouldn't bet on the merits of the remake.

    I don't know if he "played himself most of the time", though. Grant's on-screen persona was debonair and suave and Grant said that in real life he was not suave and his idea of a good time was at the pub with bangers and mash I love him for that. I also love this quote from him:

    Everybody wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.

    You all are making me want to watch Arsenic & Old Lace, a movie I've never seen.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    It's my favorite dark comedy! Grant is a riot in it and I always love Priscilla Lane. My other fave dark comedy is Murder He Says with Fred MacMurray.

    Saw Moneyball last night. More of a comedy than a drama, but was very good. Pitt as more of a character actor than as leading man.

    I'm in the minority, I guess, but I actually prefer the stage version to the movie. Sure, it's a summer stock chestnut, but if done right, it is much funnier than the movie version.

    Good choice. That's one of my two all-time favorites in old films. The other one is James Stewart in Harvey. I love that invisibible 6 foot + rabbit.

    I don't know if this is out of place here, but I just got done watching the six episodes of Pride & Prejudice (Colin Firth & Jennifer Ehle). I must have seen this in the past, but it was almost like watching it for the first time. I think this is the most perfect adaptation of Jane Austen's novel. I liked the minor changes made, to make it more complete (like Darcy going through his thoughts, fencing, swimming, etc.). The costumes, scenary (particularly Derbyshire) was beautiful. Both main characters were perfect in their roles (Mr.Darcy & Elizabeth). I hated the Hollywood version with Keira Knightly, and sort of modernization of the book, although that too had stunning visuals. Didn't care much for Bridget Jones Diary either, particularly the second one.

    ITA in every single way. It's one of my TOP favorite movies of all time. It's PERFECTION.

    Humoresque is On Demand. . I shouldn't care, as I have the DVD, but my DVD player is wonky lately. But I never get tired of the music and watching Joan Crawford take that nighttime swim....

    Well, I watched Arsenic & Old Lace tonight. It was cute. Probably won't watch it again, but I did enjoy it.

    My Mom told me today about the time she met Bing Crosby and Myrna Loy. I was and asked, "which other famous people have you met that you never told me about??!!"

    Bing Crosby is from Spokane, WA, and just north of there is Cranbrook, BC where Mom graduated from high school. Before their graduation, people were talking about how Bing Crosby was in the local watering hole and someone said, "we should invite him to our graduation"! So Mom actually went down to the pub and invited him. He said, "I just got back from a day of fishing, I don't think I'd be presentable at your event!" So he kindly declined.

    She met Myrna Loy at the border crossing and said she looked "homely". I said, "I just watched 'The Thin Man' recently and don't remember anyone looking homely in that movie!" So she clarified by saying she looked like any regular woman you might meet. Guess she was comparing her to some of the "pin-up" types of that time...

    Plus she told me a bit more about the time she met Anthony Quinn at a cafe in California. She said that he looked familiar to her, but couldn't place him. He asked where she was from, and she said "British Columbia". He said, "do you know Prince Rupert?" Mom said yes, and Quinn said he was from an Indian tribe from there (he's from Chihuahua, Mexico). Anyway, he kept pulling her leg the whole time and when he left, someone who worked there said, "you didn't know that was Anthony Quinn???"

    So I'm not the only person who didn't think it was the best movie ever?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Thanks for sharing Peter. Yesterday I saw Moneyball and word to the wise, if you are not a baseball fan, you should probaly not go and see this movie. And I am not a fan. It is a nice movie however but not sure why they thought that there was enough material for a movie there.
