    I watched Bringing Up Baby (Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn) this week. Wondrous! So much fun. Incredible acting from the leads and all of the supporting cast. The DVD I got had an extra disc of special features including a 90 minute documentary on Grant which was very, very good. My two favourite lines from Bringing Up Baby:

    Interesting, because I thought that Man of Steel was way better (in spite of my complaints about the product placement). One thing I didn't mention about World War Z: worst "use" of 3-D ever. I remember thinking early on, "why am I wearing these glasses"?? And only the other day I remembered that the movie was in 3-D. I can't remember one 3-D effect...!

    But don't you have to suspend disbelief in all musicals? While someone is speaking, a full orchestra begins to play behind them. And their next sentence comes out in song! And everyone else replies by singing!! I thought "Who Will Buy" was a beautiful song and I loved the...how do I term this...the "layers" of each group singing on top of the previous group? I don't know how people can create something so musically complex. But I'm grateful they can.

    You actually paid to see World War Z in 3D? I think that says more about you than it does the movie.

    Why? We had seen Star Trek a few weeks before that in 3-D and it was one of the best uses of 3-D I've ever seen (maybe only beaten by Avatar, but that's debatable).

    P.S. I had lunch with friends before WWZ and they said they picked up tickets on the way to the restaurant. So I take no responsibility for which theatre I ended up in.

    My Fair Lady is my favorite of hers, and one of my all-time favorite films in general. Charade, as you said, is fantastic -- she and Cary Grant are SO good together, I wish they'd been paired more often. Roman Holiday, Sabrina, and Funny Face are very good. And Breakfast at Tiffany's is good, despite some flaws. Every Audrey fan should see it, if only because it's one of her best performances. (She acted circles around poor George Peppard! I do wish she'd had a co-star who could match her in that one.) There are other good ones, but that's a quick off-the-top-of-my-head list of the Audrey Essentials.

    In other movie news, I'm watching the 1946 French version of Beauty and the Beast. AMAZING movie. I've always heard wonderful things about it, and it fully lives up to the hype.

    Just saw 'The Heat' with Bullock and McCarthy. Great buddy movie, with two 40something women. McCarthy steals the movie, but Bullock is good and they are fun together. Hope there is a sequel. I would recommend to anyone that loved Bridesmaids and enjoy that kind of humor.
    Jane Curtin has a really small role - wonder how much ended up on the cutting room floor.

    Another fun Audrey Hepburn movie is How to Steal a Million with Peter O'Toole; it's an art heist caper film. One of my faces

    Of all the movies being released this summer the only one I have zero interest in seeing is "Wolverine". Not sure why, maybe it is just fatigue with a character that has been done to death.

    Oh, I love that film. One of my all time favourites. Grant and Hepburn make the perfect quirky pairing, and Grant's gift for comedic acting is displayed here perhaps better than in any other film (though I know some people prefer The Awful Truth). The conversation around the dinner table, with Grant just wandering off from time to time, is just brilliantly acted and directed. A screwball masterpiece.

    "Ali" is worth watching, can't remember if "and justice for all" is or not so what does that tell you lol. My random library pick was "A.I." which was better than expected thanks mostly to Jude Law. Seeing Brendan Gleeson was nice too. "Lenny" (1977) has not held up well over the years but at the time it was probably really something.

    "Interiors" is homage to Ingman Bergman. It's similar to "Cries and Whispers" which is hella more excruciating to watch-I've seen both once and once was more than plenty.
    I think "all Is lost" is one of those films you have to see from beginning to end to really get into it.

    Cries and Whispers is terrible to watch. I wasn't going to turn it off before the end, but like you, I don't think I could sit through it again.

    A big recommendation for 1939's "Destry Rides Again" (James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich). (Don't let the trailer throw you off.) This is a great movie, another classic from 1939 - and the first Dietrich movie I've ever seen. She is fantastic and I've never enjoyed Stewart so much. He plays such a wonderful character. And Dietrich is luminescent - I'm going to have to search out more of her movies. Two great moments that I'll spoil just in case somebody decides to seek this one out:

    This is one of those movies that I didn't complete for the longest time! I think I got it from a library far from home but didn't have time to finish it. So I noted which chapter of the movie I stopped at and about two years later finally got to see the rest of it! It was a decent movie and shows promise in Hunt as a director. But Midler was out of place in the movie, doing her schtick like Johnny Depp and Matthew McConaughey do over and over again. Everybody else was starring in a light drama with comic overtones and Midler was in a balls-to-the-wall melodrama. (Does she star in anything else??) But I give Then She Found Me a thumbs up.

    PeterG, have you seen Stewart in You Can't Take It with You? One of Capra's cornier efforts, but the famous "scream scene" should not be missed. Stewart was a master of comic timing.

    I really like Destry Rides Again, however I think my favourite role of James Stewarts is The Philadelphia Story. Of course then there is the Hitchcock movies to consider as well. But I love The Philadelphia Story.

    'Entertainment' magazine has listed 100 best ever movies. I have not seen at least half of them. They are mostly very old movies (I know that I can rent them on DVD); very few new ones. The Hurt locker surprisingly made the list. That's the newest, I think. I was happy to see 'The empire strikes back' (although not the first Starwars movie) and Schindlers list on it. However, IMO the Pianist should have been on the list, instead of Rosemary's baby (I am really not into scary movies).

    The Lone Ranger has 22% approval so far on RT. Oh dear. I'm not sure if Cowboys and Indians movies are critics proof in 2013. 'Dark Shadow' showed that audiences weren't going to show up to see anything simply because Depp was the star of it.

    Johnny Depp used to be the shiznit, but now people seem to be all "Yeah, we've seen that schtick, got something new?"

    The Lone Range looks just beyond absolutely terrible. I can already hear my dad telling me that they ruined his childhood.

    You would think Depp would be sick and tired of playing the same character in different outfits. I am starting to wonder if he is such a great actor. His range has been really looking limited. Maybe it is just the roles he chooses.

    Could it be any worse than the debacle detailed in this new article about 1991's The Lone Ranger?
