What are a few of your favorite films and why?

Casablanca - for the triumph of a noble cause To Kill a Mockingbird - for the character of Atticus Finch Boyz and the Hood - for the acting & plot Touch of Evil - for the film noir touches & the long unbroken take at the beginning of the film Trainspotting - for the energy Saturday Night Fever - for the disco music & style Manhattan - for the evocation of New York City Many many others, too many to think of now, some Hitchcock films

A movie quote to share?

Check my Facebook profile for some "Life and money both behave like quicksilver in a nest of cracks. When they're gone, we can't tell where. Or what the devil we did with them." - from Me & Orson Welles, and possibly also from The Magnificent Ambersons

Describe a loved/hated movie cliché.

Hate when men & women meet & initially don't get along, then you just know they're going to fall in love with each other by the end of the movie. Another cliche I hate is the woman who can't find a romantic interest, confides in her best (male) friend who secretly loves her, then finds out that he was the right one for her all along. That's been done in so many movies, I hate it & can tell the ending early on.

Introduction

Hi, I've always loved movies, attended the DFT for years, used to go to the Punch & Judy when I was in college as well as the Maple & Main. Looking forward to meeting others w/similar tastes.
