The "Priscilla" in this movie is the pink bus that carries three transsexuals across the wilds of the Australian desert. Encountering bigotry, fashion emergencies and transportation issues along the way, the three eventually have their day in the sun (the stage, that is.) Funny and touching, the characters gently require you to open your mind and enjoy the ride.

Of course you have Cusack who is a one of those guys you just can't help but adore. The film is about love and music, two things that breath life into everything. Taken from the book by Nick Hornby and directed by Stephen Frears so really with all these brilliant minds on one project, how can you go wrong?

  • This movie horrified me. It was so good and it annoyed me when people used to tell me it wasn't scary, because they are obviously lying. Also Mischa Barton has a great performance in this movie.

This is an amazing Peter Jackson film (pre Lord of the RIngs) Jackson's career trajectory really leaves me confused. He went from gory low brow B movies like Bad Taste to mainstream fair like Heavenly Creatures to Lord of the Rings. Consistency, please. Heavenly Creatures is at first a sweet movie about the friendship between two teen girls that moves to being a little odd, to awkward, to disturbing. One of these girls is crazy and takes the other one to crazytown with her.

Having grown up not too far from Sleepy Hollow, I was more than familiar with the legend when I first watched this film. But director Tim Burton takes it another step creepier, making it all the more engrossing and intriguing. And, of course, Johnny Depp is the perfect Ichabod Crane, entranced by Christina Ricci's otherwordly countenance.

I haven't seen it for a few years now. Maybe someone will get the movie for me on DVD. Hint! ;-) The scenery is amazing in this film --many scenes with flowers growing in fields. The story is enchanting and if you need a good movie to cheer you up -- this would be it. Many good stars in this movie too.

A drifter hitches a ride from the local District Attorney to an 'out of the way' restaurant/gas station owned by a man and his beautiful wife. The film stars Lana Turner as Cora Smith, John Garfield as Frank Chambers, Cecil Kellaway as Nick Smith and Hume Cronyn as Arthur Keats. The Postman Always Rings Twice is simply the best film noir ever done. Lana Turner, who got billing above John Garfield in this movie, and deservedly so, is stunning as Cora, the quintessential femme fatale. A must-see!!

Terry Malloy dreams about being a prize fighter, while tending his pigeons and running errands at the docks for Johnny Friendly, the corrupt boss of the dockers union. Terry witnesses a murder by two of Johnny's thugs, and later meets the dead man's sister and feels responsible for his death. She introduces him to Father Barry, who tries to force him to provide information for the courts that will smash the dock racketeers. The film stars Marlon Brando as Terry Malloy, Karl Malden as Father Barry, Lee J. Cobb as Johnny Friendly and Rod Steiger as Charley 'the Gent' Malloy. For all its great dramatic and cinematic qualities, and its fiery social criticism, Elia Kazan's On the Waterfront is also one of the most gripping melodramas of political corruption and individual heroism ever made in the United States. A five-star movie!!!

It is an inside look into the private lives of Nicholas and his wife Alexandra, their daughters, and the painful secret which bound the Imperial Couple to the mystical Rasputin, and the eventual execution of the entire family. If you are interested in the fall of the Russian monarchy, this movie is for you. It is one of the most beautifully crafted and moody epics I've ever seen.

Dobbs and Curtin meet up in Mexico, and go to work for a contractor, Pat McCormick, who takes them away to remote site and tells them they will be paid when the job is finished. When they are finished, they return to town to find McCormick to get their wages. McCormick gives them a few dollars, and says he'll just go to the bank and pick up the payroll for them. Dobbs and Curtin then meet up with an old prospector, who claims the hills are still full of gold, and if they can get the cash, he'll go with them. They eventually get the cash from McCormick after a little "persuasion", and all three set off for the hills as good friends, but will they return that way ? It stars Humphrey Bogart as Fred C. Dobbs, Walter Huston as Howard and Tim Holt as Bob Curtin. This is the most powerful movie ever made on the destructive power of greed. This movie is rightfully considered one of the greatest American films, and is also yet another in a string of first-rate collaborations between John Huston and Humphrey Bogart. A must-see!
