  1. Jackie,
    My mother used to make me watch...Picnic, Place In The Sun, Funny Girl,
    Gypsy, All About Eve, Some like it Hot, you get the idea! She was training me for LIFE!! Thank you for your movie list brings back memories!

  2. ditto to 'flaccid clown. flaaaaaccid.'.
    by the way- i saw 'catfish' last night. you were right!

  3. omg! moulin rouge! the couple in front of me walked out. i wanted to, but being the stubborn bitch i am, i kept thinking, "this is going to make sense at some point!" and i stayed. much to my chagrin. LOL

  4. Your deep seated love for Vertigo means we'd get along famously in real life!

    Given your amazing taste, I will have to look at a few of the films I overlooked - but I have to say, 'The Man Who Came to Dinner' is totally worth it! You can even nexflix the Roundabout production with Nathan Lane (meh) Harriet Harris (one of the most fabulous/underrated actresses ever!) and Jean Smart! So hard to choose between that one and the original with Ms. Bette Davis!

  5. ummm!Paul Rudd! Hottest pic ever! Love your new blog...I am laid up with back problems and your blog is working better than the vicodin.

  6. Full-On Douche....hated that Baz Lurhman tragedy! And I do have to admit...I enjoyed The Cell with Jello in it too. I'm very pleased that you like Old School Art House "La belle et Le Bete!" My mom was such a rotten phobe, she almost killed it for me when it comes to musicals...I hardly like them but I've opened myself to trying to appreciate some 40's through 60's vintage. I do love Hedwig and Rocky Horror; what kind of fag wouldI be I be if I didn't??? I'll finish by saying you have divine taste in movies...we have similar tastes and thats one of the many reasons why I admire you!!!!!!!!!!
