Christian Bale / My Favorite Interview
For it's time it was a good movie
I agree this movie could have been better but looking back now I'd say it was exactly what people were looking to see on the screen.All the films with Black cast had the same feel to them and we ate it up.Two of the best that strayed from all that were not talked about as much as the action pictures."Sounder" and "The Learning Tree" which also need to be shown more on TV.As for this film I liked the actor who played the lead.Lawrence Cook who I see died 3 yrs ago was exactly what I pictured Dan Freeman to be like.I recommend this film and i'd love to see a Black film channel that gives you some commentary along with the films as TCM does.Where's Max Julien? How about all the black actresses who paved the way for those working now.Not Hattie McDaniel but Gloria Hendry,Brenda Sykes,Shelia Frazier and Judy Pace just to name a few.I know Vonetta McGee who was with Max Julien on screen and in real life for a time ,married Carl Lumbly.Lonette McKee was on TV often at one time and Rosalind Cash has passed away.Anyhoo see this movie and then see another black film and another.Then pick up a book.Or do both read the book "Native Son" then watch the film "Native Son"-any version."The River Niger" is on DVD in the dollar bin but it's good.If only because James Earl Jones and Glen Turman are in it.
A Night in Heaven (1983)
Are they kidding?
I remember when the "Ladies Night" in clubs with male strippers became popular.One scene in "Mr Mom" and this entire movie made the male stripping industry for females really take off.Afterwards Every TV sitcom of the 80's on had at least one episode with the male stars doing a strip and the females stars catching them and dragging them off the stage or going crazy and spending tons of money like Peg Bundy. That said this movie was corny.Only because Christopher Atkins was the boniest,non-dancing male stripper I've ever seen.Clearly he was chosen to capitalize on the "teen hunk" factor and "The Blue Lagoon" movie which he starred.Lesley Warren is dressed like a school marm in the 1880's until she gets a make-over up by a girlfriend to hit the club and snap!She's a hot mama in a snazzy red dress with her hair down and plenty of make-up on.What she doesn't know is a student she flunked recently (Chris) is the star stripper in the club she goes to and he knocks her off her feet with a super sexy kiss.Oh yeah-She's married to a fuddy-duddy older than she is. It's an okay film to catch on cable.Just don't expect any deep acting by anyone and you'll be fine.
High School Musical (2006)
Better than "Grease 2" and a few others
Great cast,great songs and great dancing without a gooey story and bursting into song at inappropriate times.I thought the director and choreographers did an amazing job with the kids.The two leads seemed perfect for their parts I can't imagine anyone that would have done a better job.I loved the choreography and song on "Get'cha Head In The Game".Kudos to the associate choreographer,Charles Kaplow who put it together.He was also in the movie as one of the basketball players/dancers The use of the basketballs just flowed with the moves of the dancers.As for "Stick To The Status Quo".It brought back memories of "Hot Lunch Jam" in "Fame" the movie. With a little more story Disney could have released this in theaters.More catchy songs were "Breaking Free"," Start Of Something New", and the hook that sold the picture "We're All In This Together".Next star ready for a lead with his Side-show Bob style is Corbin Blue who was all over the place with his great smile.I read where he went to Debbie Allen's Dance Academy.Ms Allen who was the dance teacher in "Fame" the movie and the choreographer as well as sometimes director of "Fame" the TV series is a very hard teacher.If you work with her YOU MOST DEFINITELY CAN DANCE! A very enjoyable movie musical.
It Happened Tomorrow (1944)
Little known,underrated gem
I bought the DVD and watched this film because I am a huge fan of the TV show "Early Edition" not "Evening Edition" as mentioned in an earlier post.I mention that show because the idea for it came from this wonderful movie and I'm surprised no where on any website for the show do the creators mention this movie as the inspiration for the show.Dick Powell and Linda Darnell star along with Jack Oakie.I will combine both and let the reader be the judge.
*spoiler info comparing "It Happened Tomorrow" and "Early Edition"
Larry(in movie) and Gary(TV show) both start getting tomorrow's newspaper. Larry gets his from the old man who also works at the paper(he's dead but Larry doesn't know it). Gary gets his from the cat who belonged to the old man who worked at the newspaper who's long dead but will visit Gary and talk to him in later shows. Both use the paper to get a large sum of money quick by betting at the track. Both have 2 companions(a man & woman) who know about the paper. Both save people from accidents after reading in the paper about their deaths.Both read their own obituary in the paper and have to change the headline. Both have a noted connection to a hotel in town.Lastly both the movie and the show have someone answer a want-ad that's in tomorrow's paper for an opening that doesn't exist/but an employee gets fired right in front of them,the boss then says to put an ad in tomorrow's paper which Larry/Garry have already read.

Body and Soul (1925)
Worth watching !
A very moving film for its time.I'm a big Paul Robeson fan and I'm glad TCM shows a lot of films with all Black casts.I think it should be shown along with the 1929 film "Hallelujah".It also has an all Black cast and has religion as its theme but it's not a silent film.This film ran a little too long but I never stopped watching.Touchy subject matter even today.Right on point even today!Even though Robeson found fame who knows what talent the others had that skin color stopped from them also becoming well known.That's why I love these films.The Black Church must have shunned this type of film back them and the actors couldn't have had an easy time of it.I'd call this a silent soap opera.The mother really loved her daughter a whole lot.Mercy!The daughter was the ultimate tragic figure.The Minister.One word-Sinister!
The Guys Next Door (1990)
I loved this show and the guys!
This was a Saturday morning show on NBC probably to take advantage of the teen market that watched "Saved By the Bell" and other teen shows. I have a VHS tape of videos from the show I found at a flea market The guys were cute,it was as funny as any show on now if not funnier and the music was pretty good.It reminded me of "The Monkees".Lots of skits,jokes,songs.They all lived together and a video was shown each show with them singing.Who knows what fame they guys would have found if it had been a hit.I know Patrick Dancy who was the only African-American in the group guested on many shows and at one time in real life dated Tina Yothers who played Jennifer the youngest daughter on "Family Ties".
*btw I heard that the show was axed because the management representing New Kids On The Block threatened to sue.
Folies Bergère de Paris (1935)
It's fun seeing all three
The Fox Movie Channel showed all three versions of this story today starting with "That Night In Rio" then "On The Riviera" and ending with "Folies Bergere" I live Danny Kaye and Don Ameche so I won't pick a favorite I just like the idea of seeing different versions of the same film all at once.I also love old movies so this one was enjoyable too. Great musical numbers.No one misses the old movie houses more than me it's just not the same watching the films from the 30's,40's and 50's etc on VHS or DVD.My wish would be to have a bunch of same titled movies run on the same day in an old theatre and then turn up the lights and talk about them.This one is a great start.
Teenage Millionaire (1961)
This movie is likable!
I liked this film for a number of reasons.The big budget,cgi films of today cost mega bucks yet are tiresome,with no story,and so music video fast-paced that you can't see anything worth seeing.The old black & white low budget films are campy fun.You get to see famous people in early roles or maybe at the end of their careers.The clothes,cars and music take some of us back to times that were the happiest for us and our country.I hadn't seen this film before yesterday when I saw it on cable and it is a hoot.One minute your listening to corny dialog then a musical performance pops in.Jackie Wilson(a favorite of mine )does a great Elvis impersonation singing a song with the same moves and all or was Elvis imitating Jackie? Loved the song too.As some one else commented it was am early version of a music video.Now for a correction The Jack Larson in this film is not the same guy that played Jimmy Olsen on the Superman TV series.I made the same mistake with a TV show. This Jack played a horrible nightclub performer whose uncle hires Rob,Sally and Buddy to write his act in an episode of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" I noted on a website for "Superman" that this Jack had changed so much it was hard to believe it was the same guy yet he had mentioned the part in his autobiography.Well someone noted they are are in fact two different men hence the reason they look nothing alike! Just 2 guys with the same name.As for Jimmy Clanton he looks like a young Donald O'Connor to me.He should have made more films no worse than any other teen singing sensation turned actor.A great find for anyone loving 60's B films.
The Ski Trip (2004)
It was adorable
I also caught this movie on LOGO while channel surfing.Yes the movie was low budget but the guys had me from hello.Omar was a cutie,Tyson was FINE and Terry stole the show.I think the movie was too long and some thing they touched on didn't click.It's called " Ski Trip" ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
but all they did was ride upstate to a very tiny 4 bedroom house that ended up having 10 people stay overnight,7 guys 3 women.I don't really know what I'm spoiling since the movie didn't stick with a storyline.Yeah,Corey was depressed he turned 30 with no progress in his career as a cartoonist hoping to get his title published and his so called boyfriend dumping him.I don't know what if any scenes were cut but this is Logo and they do edit-to-death any profanity,sex or nudity.Having said that this is a very tame movie with laughs and a few sad moments.The bit with 6 grown men and their luggage squeezing in a small rental car in the wintertime was dumb.Corey's lesbian best friend Nicky kept saying her date for the weekend was deaf,mute and couldn't read lips yet the girl responded twice by talking???Very attractive cast and they did fine with what they were given.The actor who played Corey also directed so he wore one too many hats.He should have directed and had someone else play Corey since he was the least interesting character!I'd like to know what gays or lesbians thought of the film.I'm straight and female but even I can't understand why LOGO edits it's films when its target audience would be looking to get GLTB entertainment with all the sex,profanity and kissing intact!
The Opposite Sex (1956)
You can't improve on perfection and this movie proves it!
"The Women" is one of the true treasures of old black & white movies.There was not one role miscast and the snappy,witty script has not been duplicated in another all female movie and still holds up today!That said this movie is 100% miscast,misdirected and the script is dull & flat even though it includes many lines from the original play & movie.I really felt sorry for Ann Miller,wasted in the Paulette Goddard role who neither gets to sing nor dance in this musical remake! While the tone-deaf, off-key June Allyson(Norma Shearer she ain't) gets to sing a few songs while having no chemistry with Leslie.Another thing, who the heck decided to let the Sylvia Fowler character played here by Delores Gray and in 1939 by Rosalind Russell,hook-up with Buck Winston instead of the Countess played by Agnes Moorehead? Another great actress was wasted in her part along with Joan Blondell and Gray too for that matter.I agree with all previous comments that adding men did nothing and actually helped make a dull film duller if that's possible.Skip this tin horror and go for the 1939 gold medal original.
