    I second Immoimeme's recommendation for jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring. Great movies, especially the first one, so heartbreaking. I saw these when they first came out, and have been really impressed wtih Daniel Auteuil over the years.

    Recently I finally saw 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' - loved it, cried, Logan Lerman was great, nice coming of age story.
    And I will admit, I saw for the first time 'Harold and Kumar go to White Castle'. I was amused and LOL a bunch of times. Cho and Penn were great. Stupid and fun!

    EYS to "Harald and Kumar." Any of them. They're all dirty stupid hilarious good fun.

    Side nite: I had no idea when I watched them that Neil Patrick Harris was a real person. I thought he was a crazy character but apparently he is-a real-life one!! I just luv him :-)
    Have a nice day!

    Speaking of old people who rock: Philomena (opening today in full release) is definitely on my list too.

    Dame Judi Dench, who is losing her eyesight from macular degeneration but isn't letting that stop her, is the very definition of a rockin' old person!

    I picked only 3 from the list. I would also pick Philomena.

    BTW just got back from watching The Hunger Games- Catching fire. Definitely a thriller. Will there be a third HG movie?

    With that ending, most definitely There are three books so I'm assuming a third movie.

    Some action/drama-ishy types of movies I've seen of late:

    Takers with Matt Dillon, Hayden Christensen, Chris Brown and a lot of other famous people I can't remember right now. This is one I grabbed off the shelf at the library, so not one I was expecting much from. But I thought it was decent. Moved at a pretty good pace and as much as I (really) dislike Chris Brown as a person, he held his own amongst some pretty good actors and even did a parkour type action scene quite well. I was going to make a joke here, but think it might have been in bad taste, so I've saved you all from that!!

    Flight with Denzel Washington. So did he deserve his Oscar nomination? Hmm...tough for me to be commital on this as I have always enjoyed his movies. He's just so watchable. But I'll say yes. Unless I looked up wikipedia to see who might have gotten a nod in place of him. But I'm not going to. It seems like this movie should have been a disappointment with such an exciting beginning, but I enjoyed it throughout the whole thing. Thumbs up.

    Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise. So much kerfuffle about the casting of Cruise in this role. But he's like Denzel to me, pretty much infallible when it comes to movie-making. I wonder if their greatest success is always surrounding themselves with the best in the business so that they can never fail.

    The Double with Richard Gere and that guy from That 70's Show...not Ashton...his name is right there... Oh yeah, Topher Grace!! Yay me!! This one was good, but not fantastic. Did the quality of Gere's movies slide, or did the public give up on him? Was he too political about social issues like Susan Sarandon? It's weird that he's seemingly a footnote in the world of movies. But he's always watchable, and I don't mean just in a kind of way, hee hee!

    There will be two more Hunger Games movies. They're splitting the final book into two parts.

    So last time we reviewed a year in movies, we viewed like it was 1999. This week we're going to celebrate my birth year. So was there a big splash in '63 other than my birth? Elizabeth Taylor thinks (thought) so! On June 12th, Cleopatra opened and for the Wikipedia entry for film events of 1963, Cleopatra takes about 60% or more of the space to talk about what happened that year. It's quite an interesting blurb and is probably too big to quote here. But you should check it out!

    1963 movies I have seen: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Birds, Charade, The Great Escape

    I remember seeing It's A Mad....World as a kid and thinking something like, "all these old people sure are having a lot of fun!" The Birds is one I probably saw as a teenager and should watch again at some point. The last two I saw in the last year or two and recommend both, but Charade much more than The Great Escape.

    Movies I might have seen when I was younger, but I’m not sure… Cleopatra , Tom Jones, Irma la Douce, Move Over, Darling, Hud, Lilies of the Field, The Haunting, Lord of the Flies

    I'm pretty sure I watched The Haunting with my sisters as a young person. I might not remember it that well because it might have been too scary for a kid under ten!

    Movies I have not seen, but should: How the West Was Won, Bye Bye Birdie

    I saw Ann-Margaret in State Fair recently and she was amazing, so I should probably check out more of hers. Any other Ann-Margaret fans reading this and have any recommendations?

    And since these were the people born the same year as me, this is the order I would have invited people to my birthday parties: Vanessa Williams, Lisa Kudrow, Johnny Depp, Tatum O’Neal, Brad Pitt, Helen Hunt and Steven Soderbergh. But that Quentin kid is a freakin’ loudmouth and I do NOT want him at my party!!!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I am surprised. There isn't enough material to make two movies out of Mockingjay. What are they going to call the two movies?

    They don't care if there is enough material. They see $$$$$. Two separate movies mean twice the money to be made.

    "Tom Jones" "Hud" and "8 1/2" are the best from 1963 imo.
    I remember getting dragged to "it's a mad....world" as a kid. I thought it would never end!!
    "The Haunting" was on tv when I had the mumps. I was not suppose to be watching tv but I did lol. Scared the hell out of me. For yearrrrrs I never ever let my hand dangle out over the side of the bed. Now the movie is laughable esp after reading the book. THAT is v scary.
    In college I did a fantastic analysis of "the nutty professor" but danged if I can recall a word of it now. All I can tell you is it's worth watching because there is more to it than what's on the surface.
    Have a nice day!

    "Dr No" is worth watching/enduring because the shot where Ursala Andress emerges from the sea is A Genuine Iconic Moment. Too bad the rest of the film is so lame I comparison to that.

    Ann Margret -"kitten with a whip" and "tommy" and "carnal knowledge" are my recommendations. But that film "viva las vegas" with Elvis is not bad esp the dancing parts. She can dance, goodness me !can she dance!!!!
    Have a nice day!

    I saw Hud a few years ago and thought it beautifully observed and extremely well acted. I haven't seen many of the others. Cleopatra was dreadful, and panned by the critics, while I found Irma la Douce much too sentimental for my taste. Someone, can't remember who, when asked if he'd seen 8 ½, replied, "I left at 2 ¾."

    I thought the second book should have been split it two, if you needed to split any of them. The third? Not so much

    I love McLintock, it's a family favourite. We can literally stand around and quote 80% of the movie. Charade is a favourite of mine too. But that is largely because I have never seen an Audrey Hepburn movie I didn't enjoy. I haven't seen all of them though so who knows what can happen in the future. Reading that list of movies though I realised I really haven't seen that many movies from 1963. I know Hud has been on my list for a while but I either haven't found it yet or when I'm someplace that I would be likely to find it, like on the internet, which is often, I forget to look for it.

    Given that I think Catching Fire the movie was actually better than CF the book, my hopes for Mockingjay as 2 movies have increased somewhat. There could be material for two movies, if they flesh out all the stuff that happened when Katniss was passed out I guess we'll see. So far they haven't let us down at all.

    I wonder about the name, too. I mean, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part II sounds just horrifically awful.
