  1. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked
    submit my comment didn't show up. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all
    that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

    1. Sorry, I monitor comments for spam, but thank you. :)

  2. I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you're going
    to a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!

  3. I don't know what the problem is. Maybe it's your browser like you said.

  4. Thanks for sharing all these goodies and I'm sure I'll find 1-2 to bump up my queue! Happy you enjoyed Where Eagles Dare which is very rewatchable. The Hill and an La Cérémonie I loved too.

    Here's mine:

    1. Glad you loved those too, Chris. If you haven't seen any of my top 3, they are now on my top 100 favorite films list. ;)

  5. Some great stuff here. I watched The Hill for the first time a few years ago and really like it. And, man, that still from Body Snatchers never ceases to amaze. It's a real gem.

    1. Thanks man. Love those two films. I was kind of surprised I enjoyed Body Snatchers so much, since I was a big fan of the 1956 version.
