Lists by sapphiresky
A list of films that were a disappointment to me--by my opinion. I have disengaged comments on this list to ward off abuse. We all have opinions, and by my opinion, these movies weren't that great.
These films do not fall into my favorites or best list, but they are very good, absorbing movies, and I recommend them to all IMDB users. :) They were good enough I would watch them again and still enjoy them.
A list of classics I enjoyed that are wonderful in their own right, but don't make the favorites list. Enjoy the watch!
WARNING: This list could make a few of us feel old, lol. :) I was a huge Bugs Bunny fan, so he reigns eternal, but here are some other faves from the vault of memories.
Mostly 70s-90s, the stuff I grew up on.
Many of these are classics, as I am a huge fan of older films. If you are not into early Hollywood, you might want to pass on my list. I think Double Indemnity, I am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang, and Strangers On a Train are about three of the best classic films I have seen in years.
I welcome comments on this list, but please be respectful. I am not attacking any of these films, only sharing an opinion. Most of these were very good movies, but I feel the media overrated them.
Musicals are an acquired taste for some, but for the others, they are an inborn joy. I have been a fan of musicals for as long as I can remember--more often than not, they are mood boosters, and they put a huge smile on the face of the people who appreciate them. Elaborate dance numbers, glorious songs, and joyous fun. Musicals were very important during the Great Depression--they made people happy and took their minds off of the dark times. I have a deep, ever-growing respect for them myself, and they bring my spirits up on a bad day better than any other temporary fix. They may not be for everyone, but they are certainly special in their own right.
Cary Grant will always be the love of my life...it stinks that I love a dead man. HAHA. Here's a few of my favorite Grant films...mmmm...heaven.
It's official...my new favorite classic film star is Audrey Hepburn, a star I never glanced at before.
This list is a compliation of some of my personal favorites that I will never grow tired watching, and consider many of them to be some of the best films ever made.
There's some good ones in this list, and some that are even legendary.
My all-time favorite classic leading lady. I hope to see more of her films in the future and continue adding to this list.
I have yet to see a film of his I didn't like. I hope to see more to add to this list. I am currently hunting down Sabrina. I love Billy Wilder's films, and so will you.
My top five Kelly favorites.
A list of personal favorites.
I cannot watch without busting out laughing. They have the stuff.
Many of these films have faded from the media since release, but are very good films worthy of viewing again. Give them a try.
Any I missed? Comment. Some of these stars grew to have enduring careers behind the camera into adulthood and are still acting today, others faded out of public view after a while to lead everyday lives. I grew up on many of them, so they hold a special place in my heart whereever they are now. :)
The ones in this list were my favorites. Did you have one?
A to F ratings show how much I liked this film. I am a huge Sandra Bullock fan, but as much as I like her, I have to say she has released her fair share of stinkers just like every other star. They all have a few--her worst was All About Steve. I hated it.
Some I liked more than others, but I'll watch anything with this actor. I am crazy about him. Being a lesser known, except for Citizen Cane, which I have never seen, he deserves more credit as an actor.
