Classic Movies Retrospect Part 5 and 6


Oh yeah, it's that time again to post some more Retrospect, I hope you enjoy these too gems.

Double Indemnity

*Double Indemnity (1944) is an Academy Award nominated film noir starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson. The movie was directed by Billy Wilder and adapted by Wilder and Raymond Chandler from the novella of the same title by James M. Cain which first appeared in 1935 as an abridged 8-part serial in Liberty magazine.[1]

The story was based on a 1927 crime perpetrated by a married Queens woman and her lover. Ruth (Brown) Snyder persuaded her boyfriend, Judd Gray, to kill her husband Albert after having her spouse take out a big insurance policy—with a double-indemnity clause. The murderers were quickly identified and arrested.

Now this was a hot movie. Who would ever though that Fred MacMurray (My Three Sons) and Barbara Stanwyck (Big Valley) could heat up the tv screen. Everything about this movie is so good and it is a must see, if you look for a little killing between lovers.

Bringing Up Baby

*Bringing Up Baby is a 1938screwball comedy directed by Howard Hawks and starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. It tells the story of a scientist winding up in various predicaments involving a woman with a unique sense of logic and a leopard named Baby. The supporting cast includes Charles Ruggles, Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Catlett, and May Robson.

This movie whole a special place in my heart because it is funny as hell!! Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant just shine in the telling tale of WTF moments that a scientist goes through when he meet a woman who seem to be missing some brain cells. Plus the leopard in the movie is a hoot!!

Stormy

Insensitive People in fandom.

Goodness, I sure didn't want to this to be my last post of the year. But, I'm really getting tried of people being insensitive towards other people feelings. Especially in different fandom all over the internet. Since my very first day I surfed the internet  in 1998, I have always been involved in many fandoms over the years. Some have die out than others, but it has always been good to see how other people feel about something that you enjoy watching, reading, playing (games/video games) or listen to. That is one of the reason why I join so many message boards other the years. But I been noticing lately that some people don't know when to quit with the taunts, rude comments, or just plain hurtful/evil comments they say about someone or something.

Of course I can't stand certian things in fandoms I enjoy. We all do, yet I'm not going to go out of my way to say something so insensitive and cause a big uproar for people who only visited a board to read or chat about their favorite things.  I'm not saying that everybody is going to agree with everything, but can you please leave all the personal attacks towards member out of your comments. I guess some people get bold when they can do name calling from the keyboard than in front of a person's face. I don't know why people do that. The sad thing about it that I see it more and more lately now than I did 10 years ago and with people who are older than my 29 years.  That is why I only stick with more smaller fandom message boards. Smaller mesage board are like eating your favorite ice cream over and over again compared to much large ones that you see craziness almost everytime you visited them.  I really do appreciated all your hard work Zeta, Black, TGB (The Chamber board), Jamie, Tina (The Tangie board), and the others who keep things moving along so great and wonderful on the smaller boards. I just wish other boards would do the same. *ghug*

Okay rant over. I must eat something sweet now.......

Oh btw, if this my last post of the year.... Happy New Year and I hope all is good and well for everybody in 2009!!! :D

Drabble # 1


First of all, I meant to post this one before Christmas, but you all know how things go. Also, I'm so scared about posting this, but fear is something that everybody has to overcome and I'm planning to overcome my fear by one drabble at a time. Oh yeah, you already know this drabble is all about Tangeline. I believe they will always be my muse. Please for give me for any errors also.

The rating? Hard PG-15 or mild R


Btw, this is not canon; just little snippets of how I would love to see Todd and Evangeline react to different situations in their lives. Sugary Sweet Fluff at it Fullness. ;)
 

Oh and a shout-out  and thanks for Chibi-chan, Black, TBG, Zeta and my other ROD Tangies for cheering me on to post this and being such great online friends.  And a special thanks to you TBG for letting me use your beautiful icons/avatars too. *group hugs around*

Classic Movies Retrospect Part 3 and 4

Oh boy, I'm so late with this and because of it, I'm going to post two rertospects. *grins* First up!

Singin' in the Rain

From Wikipedia:


Singin' in the Rain is a 1952comedymusical film starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds and directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen, with Kelly also providing the choreography. It offers a comic depiction of Hollywood's transition from silent films to "talkies".

The movie is frequently described as one of the best musicals ever made,[1] topping the AFI's 100 Years of Musicals list, and ranking fifth in its updated list of the greatest American films in 2007.

This movie was on this morning on TCM and I hate that I didn't get to see all of it, but I was so happy to see some of it. This movie is my favorite musical/dance movie and I really feel that this movie will hold up to any dancing movie of today. Gene Kelly has such a raw sensuality with his dancing because it was so different than the other male dancers at the time, plus his dancing was sexy as hell. IOf course Kelly dancing in the rain is CLASSSIC in all levels. If you are looking for a movie to make you laugh and you enjoying singing/dancing, then this is the movie for you.


Check this dancing number with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charise from Singing in the Rain. Wow!

On to the second retrospect


The Public Enemy

The Public Enemy is a 1931 pre-Code American crime drama film starring James Cagney and directed by William A. Wellman. The movie relates the story of a young man's rise in the criminal underworld in prohibition-era urban America. The supporting players include Jean Harlow, Edward Woods, Joan Blondell, Beryl Mercer, Donald Cook, and Mae Clarke. The film, which was based on the novel Beer and Blood by John Bright, launched Cagney to stardom.

This movie is the reason why I feel in love with James Cagney and the early ganster movies. Talk about badass!! This movie was done before the code in hollywood came into play and you can sure tell that so with some of the scenes in the movie. If you want to know were the ganster movie genre began, then this one of the movies that started the ball rolling.

Um, this is one of those scenes I was talking about

What can I say, but Go CAVS!!!!






Cavaliers rout Bobcats 94-74 for 8th straight win


James scored 25 points before he and Ilgauskas got to sit out the fourth quarter and put their celebrations on hold as the Cavaliers cruised past the Bobcats 94-74 on Saturday night.

The Cavs have won eight straight games—all by at least 12 points—to tie an NBA record, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

“We take pride on trying to build big leads,” James said. The Cavaliers were never threatened behind their relentless defense in improving their franchise-best start to 17-3. The blowout meant James was stuck with two steals
