   Safetydude posted on Movies & Reviews  I suppose everyone that particpates on this Wall has some favorite DVD's, or even some old Videos, on a shelf. I think it would be interesting to see what y'all watch when you sit down to watch a movie at home.
I'm going to start with ten titles Miss Tina and I have.
These are not in any order; just how they came off the shelf.
-”Muppet Treasure Island”,
-”A Prarie Home Companion”,
-”i'll be there”,
-”Laurel and Hardy”, four features,
-”Mr. Toad's Wild Ride”,
-”Islands In The Stream”,
-”Borat”,
-”Airplane”,
-”Sully”,
-”Wild Hogs”.
Like I said; no particular order.

   GO3  Well, Mrs. GO3's taste in movies diverges quite a bit from mine, but these are my top ten in no particular order:

- Skyfall
- Predators
- The Fifth Element
- Loony Tunes boxed set
- Firefly boxed set
- Serenity
- The Manchurian Candidate (the original, not the silly remake )
- Pork Chop Hill
- The Beast (OK, I'm cheating here. It's not a DVD but I bought the download because DVDs of this movie are rare and very expensive )
- Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World

   Tulsa  Movies I had when I had a VCR: Tin Cup (loved the sound track, boogie and blues ); Victor/Victoria (for Andrews singing LaJazz alone, had it set to that scene ); Ladyhawke (primo ); Pretty Woman and cannot remember the rest. Donated all the above.

Have saved on DirecTV ?DVR: The Lake House; The Italian Job; Runaway Bride; Short Circuit; The Lincoln Lawyer, The 100 Foot Journey; and Sherlock BBC season 3 episode I believe, Scandal in Belgravia.

   StormCnter  My post disappeared, so here it is again. From the dozens of DVDs on my movie shelves, I offer the following: "The Nun's Story", "The Great Escape" "Tom Horn", "84 Charing Cross Road", "The Heiress", "Hawaii" and "The Hawaiians", "the Way We Were".

   Tulsa  Sherlock is on Masterpiece Mystery. Seasons 1,2 & 3 were good, possibly bc there were 'years' between season 2 and 3. Anticipation doncha know. Season 4 made me furious. I recommend you read the reviews of Season 4, bc you can not unsee it. Season 4 made a mockery of 'Sherlock Holmes'. A season is only 3 episodes. Pass on the Christmas special. (end of season 3, I believe )

   MeiDei  INHO the best Sherlock series, on Masterpiece Mysteries, was with Jeremy Brett as Sherlock - closest adaptation of his character's mannerisms, addiction & genius as written in the original books.

   Safetydude  Roger on Jeremy Brett as the TV Sherlock.
But, I think the hallmark series are the movies with Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce as Sherlock and Watson.

   Tulsa  I've seen all the Beeb versions with all the actors mentioned above. Cumberbatch is good, not necessarily the best. He was new. It was more new and different Sherlock. They messed up 'Sherlock' in season 4.

I personally like Jonnie Lee Miller and Lucy Liu in Elementary more than any British version.

The speaker, and star of this movie, is a foreign born actor with deep voice and a French accent.

   Safetydude posted on Movies & Reviews  Since we are going into a holiday week end here's an easy one:

"I disagree. It wasn't just me, it was all of us. Jeff, Donna, Sheila, Doreen. The passengers, rescue workers. Air traffic control, ferry boat crews and scuba cops. We all did it. We survived".

Happy Fourth y'all!

   Safetydude posted on Movies & Reviews  A quote from a 1932 thriller starring, among others, a gorilla's heart-throb and a foreign correspondent named Huntley Haverstock.

"Kill! Then Love. When you have known that, you will have known ecstasy".

   Safetydude  Joel McCrea was not named 'Haverstock' in this movie.
That was just a hint to his name from his role in "Foreign Correspondent", which is probably better known.
I don't remember his name in the this movie.

   Safetydude posted on Movies & Reviews  Here is a quote for our times:
"A weak mind isn't strong enough to hurt itself.
Stupidity has saved many a man from going mad".

Just name the movie.
If you can, name the speaker for extra credit.

   Safetydude posted on Movies & Reviews  A quote(with a tiny edit )from a TV version of one of my favorite movies.

I wear the chain I forged in life. I made it link by link and yard by yard. Is its pattern strange to you or would you know the length of the strong coils you bear yourself? It was as full, as heavy, as long as this seven ...eves ago, you have labored on it since, it is a ponderous chain!

We must have six or seven versions of this movie and the most watched one is "The Muppet Christmas Carol" with Michael Caine.

   StormCnter  Safetydude, over the years we have accumulated at least a hundred movie DVDs. There is a huge shelving unit for them next to the big-screen. But, we don't seem to watch them very often any more. From time to time, I weed through them and add a few to my book donations at the VA hospital. They use the movies in their therapy unit.
