August 2017 in Films
This month was mostly filled with Summer Under The Stars, but I also caught up on a bunch of Sam Shepard films, and went to Noir City Chicago. As always, everything I watched is under the cut.
Movie Quote of the Day – Viva Las Vegas, 1964 (dir. George Sidney)
Movie Quote of the Day – Jailhouse Rock, 1957 (dir. Richard Thorpe)
Peggy Van Alden: I think I’m going to just hate you!
Vince Everett: No, you ain’t gonna hate me. I ain’t gonna let you hate me. [kisses her]
Peggy Van Alden: How dare you think such cheap tactics would work with me!
Vince Everett: [after kissing her again] That ain’t tactics, honey. It’s just the beast in me.
An Ode to TCM
Sorry I’ve been m.i.a. since the Oscars. I’ve been having some problems at work. Long story short work’s no longer a problem, so I’m back. I’ve got a few posts related to film in 2010 that I want to post, but I’ve got to flesh them out a little before I post them.
However, today I spent quite a bit of time watching Turner Classic Movies. They had an amazing line-up today. I’d recommend all four of the films I watched today, but each one for very different reasons.
The first film I watched was Some Like It Hot. I’ve seen this film numerous times. It is definitely one of the absolute funniest films of all time. Billy Wilder truly is a genius.
