Crop And Save
Peter Pan (2003)
Beautiful, literate, charming
Many of the settings look like Maxfield Parrish paintings come to life.
The child actors seem very natural. Lynn Redgrave was a treat as the aunt -- she's the voice of propriety, but still sympathetic.
Go see it. It's entrancing on several levels -- joyfully telling a kids' adventure and commenting on that story at the same time.
The Valley of Gwangi (1969)
Best dinosaur and cowboy movie ever
Okay, so it's the only dinosaur and cowboy movie (that I know of). The acting isn't much, but seeing three cowboys rope a T Rex -- and then seeing the T Rex fight an elephant -- that is cool.
And "El Diablo," the little eohippus, is just too cute.
Harryhausen's stop-motion animation is wonderful. Get the DVD with an interview in which he talks about how he did the cowboy-roping scene, and current animators/fx artists talk about he inspired them -- pretty fun. In a geeky kind of way.
Breaker! Breaker! (1977)
Treat for 70s fans
If you liked the styles of the 70s, you'll love Breaker Breaker. Check out the blown-dry hairdos, the "knotty pine" paneling, the Coors beers ... ahhh. This movie must have marked the peak and beginning of the decline of the CB fad.
Oh, plot, acting etc? *giggle* As if!
