yesterday i was randomly flipping channels and i saw that TCM is showing all oscar winning movies from now until the academy awards ceremony in march! oh joy!!! it was showing one of my all-time favorite movies "sunset boulevard". i tried to tear myself away since i had seen it enough, but how often are REALLY good movies on tv anymore? i am so jealous of those of you that have netflix. i yearn and burn for the ability to rent movies that i actually want to watch. i never even go to blockbuster anymore; all they have is straight to video crap anyway. perhaps i will ask for a netflix plan for my birthday..........
here is my list of what i would rent:
sunset boulevard-creepy, engrossing, depressing, beautiful and tragic all at the same time.
mask-cher doing what she does best, being a trashy biker mom. she just happens to have a horribly disfigured son too. excellent movie.
the elephant man-speaking of disfigurement, this movie makes me weep. so good, makes me want to treat people better.
strictly ballroom-stock up on your sequins and hairspray first. awesome soundtrack too.
shadowlands-don't even bother with make-up the day you watch this. it will just be a waste. leaves you emotionally raw.
sargeant york-i am proud to be a religious person and an american. makes you grateful for simple things.
on golden pond-ignore hanoi jane, this movie will make you excited for the rest of your life with your spouse.
sliding doors-what have you done in your life that completely changed the path that you are on?
