    A Matter of Life and Death

    ★★★★½

    "I've fallen in love with her. Her accent is foreign, but it sounds sweet to me. We were born thousands of miles apart, but we were made for each other."

    not only is this a love story for the books, but I think it’s fair to call it a masterpiece. I decided to buy the blu ray because I had a gift card, I figured the reviews and ratings wouldn’t let me down if I bought it blindly. The very…

    To Be or Not to Be

    ★★★★½

    "It's becoming ridiculous the way you grab attention. Whenever I start to tell a story, you finish it. If I go on a diet, you lose the weight. If I have a cold, you cough. And if we should ever have a baby, I'm not so sure I'd be the mother."

    there’s something about Lubitsch that i’ll never quite understand, he’s personal and has the ability to sway audiences, never crossing the line he always got so close to. It’s…

    "Did you notice something funny about that guy?

    That guy ain't funny, he ain't even human!”

    Happy Birthday Cary Grant!! starting the day off with this wasn’t a terrible idea, it’s charming and I love a good screwball for all it’s worth. However, Cary Grant doesn’t have nearly enough screentime, he just disappears in the second half for awhile. I’m not complaining about Constance Bennett taking center stage though, I love her voice and it was delightful to watch her mess with…

    "I entered the room as one enters in a dream. Walking on air.” 

    I’m feeling as if i’ve witnessed a masterful work of art, I wish I could describe how beautiful this film really is. Seeing as many reviews aren’t terribly positive my expectations were pretty low.  It’s not a movie everyone loves and I understand why. Maybe it’s boring and can’t hold their attention. Quite the opposite was my experience. 

    Lydia, an old woman reflecting on her past with…

    Christmas in Connecticut

    ★★★★

    the image of Barbara Stanwyck on a ladder decorating a gigantic Christmas tree while Dennis Morgan plays the piano on a snowy conneticuit farm brings a cozy joyful feeling that many holiday films don’t bring these days. 

    an excellent romantic comedy, not impetuous with gags, but not a sadder film either. Barbara Stanwyck’s character Elizabeth Lane is a fraud. She’s a staple in the cooking world and a picture-esque housewife, except she isn’t. Elizabeth has spun herself in a web…

    "I am constantly surprised that women's hats do not provoke more murders.”

    randomly seeing this on prime was great as it’s been on my watchlist for so long. i’m happy to say it was so much better than I thought it would be. every character seems very written out, like we know so much about them even though we really don’t. there’s plenty of comic relief and insight into everything. without Marlene Dietrich this movie would obviously be a lot…
