Tonight it was A Merkin in Paris. But something was oddly different this time. I really didn't recognize Gene Kelly at all ...

Come to find, some of the titles listed it as "The American," whereas others had it as "An American ..."

No, you are not. I have the Fistful of Dollars trilogy, Lord of the Rings trilogy, some Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVDs, and 8-10 concert DVDs. That is about it. Don't watch them much either.

A Night at the Opera, The Philadelphia Story, The Big Sleep, Casablanca, 1938 The Adventures of Robin Hood, 1943 Sahara, Stage Door, The Gay Divorcee', Top Hat, and Dirty Dancing. Marquee Theater on 21 was a huge influence when I was a tween.

"Gangs of New York" is in circulation on premium cable again.

The movie is pretty good, but Daniel Day-Lewis is so unbelievably good, he's mesmerizing. I usually don't like movies just to see an actor do his thing, but this is the most obvious exception I can think of.

The original Out of Towners is pretty funny. Of course, Road House.

I never seem to tire of

'That Thing You Do'

or

'Almost Famous'

or

Any of the 'Bourne Series'

'James Bond - Casino Royale'

Just about any Woody Allen but lately I've specifically enjoyed 'Midnight In Paris'.

'A League of Their Own'

'Gladiator'

'Cool Hand Luke'

many others too.
