  1. I don’t watch television until for a while at night, I’m but surprised that I have not seen these, I am however surprised I’ve not heard of a single one (except possibly The Batman)! I feel shielded. 😁

  2. I haven’t seen all of these, but I definitely agree with some you’ve listed: marcel the shell, unbearable weight, the duke, mrs. Harris, and I also loved the truffle hunters, a sweet European documentary

  3. Wow, I’ve actually seen many of those! Funny how there were no matches on the books list and then our agreement on movies! I’ll add one to the *can’t believe I liked* category: Bones and All.

    1. I ended up not seeing that one, but it was a toss up for me…if it gets nominated for anything I’ll probably try to stream it. As many movies there are, there are so many more books

      1. And I’ll take more chances with movie viewing…I feel like movies are only a view hours, but I guess reading a book is more of a commitment…I tend to go lighter in my books

  4. I haven’t seen any of the movies you listed. But I have to admit that I am a fan of the old black and whites. So, with that in mind…

    Most underrated movie…
    Strawberry Blond with James Cagney, Rita Hayworth and Olivia deHaviland

    Great movie just to pass an afternoon…
    Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy

    Best action movie…
    Bullitt with Steve McQueen

    Best Christmas Movie…
    It’s a Wonderful Life with James Stewart and Donna Reed

    Favorite film of all time…
    Yankee Doodle Dandy with Cagney and a host of others.
    Every Fourth of July I have to watch that one.

    1. I will watch Cary grant in anything! Shadow of a doubt, my fave Hitchcock is playing at one of our theaters next week. So excited to see restored version on big screen


    2. I have watched all the Steve Mcqueen films and – my mum used to sit me in front of the telly. Bullitt is an iconic movie and also The Great Escape. The race scene in Bullitt is well remembered and also his dress sense started a trend; the roll neck jumper.
      It’s A wonderful Life – as I have got even older I have appreciated this movie even more, becoming very nostalgic minded.
