1 - Jimmy Stewart ... He was so versatile. He could fit in any genre.
2 - Cary Grant ... He made me laugh.
3 - Gary Cooper ... He could play the every man with such diversity.
4 - Spencer Tracy ... I have to put him at the bottom because I only saw a couple of his films.

Favorite Rogers & Hammerstein movie?


For my own question, I'd put

1. Cary Grant -- Because even when he's playing a chump who's totally out to sea, he still exudes cool.
2. Jimmy Stewart -- I personally find him intensely annoying, but he's played a lot of different roles in a lot of different stuff, so I have to give him props.
3. Gary Cooper -- He's pretty much always just Gary Cooper, but that's not necessarily a bad thing -- like John Wayne always being John Wayne (although Wayne was way awesome-er, IMHO).
4. Spenser Tracy -- Meh. I mean, he's alright, but I still watch Inheret the Wind mostly for Gene Kelly, who is made of win in everything.

To the ratings of the great actors:

1. Jimmy Stewart - great versatility and put a lot of emotion into his roles
2. Cary Grant - he's close to #1 just for Gone with the Wind
3. Spencer Tracy - plenty of great roles, but he doesn't stick out quite as much as the guys above.
4. Gary Cooper - I don't think I've ever seen one of his movies, amazingly enough.

Favorite R&H movie: The Disney 1997 TV movie version of "Cinderella" - it's actually really good, in a quirky kind of way.

Favorite movie in which someone gets their head cut off?

Boo!


Clark Gable

Qadira

I wouldn't even know where to begin

Vincent Price
Peter Cushing
Lon Chaney Jr.
Christopher Lee
John Astin
Claude Rains
Basil Rathbone
Peter Lorre
Roddy McDowall

And that's just the guys on the classic movie genre


Favorite movie in which someone gets their head cut off?

Gonna disappoint the goblin and not pick a French Revolution themed one, but instead go for The Two Towers, where plenty of Uruk-hai end up a head shorter.

Favourite movie in which someone has a hand cut off?

1 - Jimmy Stewart - Rear Windows and Vertigo alone would put him at the top of my list. But then there is Harvey and the Cheyenne Social Club. So many truly great roles.
1 - Cary Grant - Yes! It is a tie with Jimmy Stewart. North by Northwest, Arsenic and Old Lace, from Topper to Father Goose, he may be the quintessential leading man.
3 - Gary Cooper - Just as Kirth said, he is just like John Wayne, but just not as great.
4 - Spencer Tracy - Sorry! I never saw the appeal.

Q: Favorite movie in which someone gets their head cut off?

A: Lord of the Rings (Fellowship of the Ring). The classic scene when Aragorn beheads the Uruk Hai Lurtz. Very cool!

Edit: I got Ninja'd on this one.

Go with Kajehase's question.

No Doubt about it: The Empire Strikes Back.

Oops, brain leakage. I meant to type North By Northwest, in all its amazing awesomeness. Duhhhhh... brain think make word say type hard.

Favorite Christopher Lee movie (other than LotR): For overall movie, I liked Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, but I didn't really like his role in it.

On balance, though, I'll go with The Last Unicorn, though I remember enjoying Airport '77 and The Skull scared the pants off of me when I was a kid and saw it on TV.

Favorite Ian McKellen movie that is not LotR or X-Men-related?


Loved, loved Chris Lee in the old Hammer Pictures Dracula movies.
His minutes on screen during Star Wars II are my favorite of probably the whole six.
Oddly enough, didn't care for him in LotR, though.

He was the best in the original Wicker Man, though!


Jason Nelson wrote:

Loved him in Richard III.

Favorite screen adaptation of a Shakespeare play?

Spoiler:
Mine is Brannaugh's Othello, with Larry Fishburne


Favourite screen adaptation of a Shakespear play?

Richard III - the one with Ian McKellen.

Favourite re-telling of a Shakespeare play as a different story? (Like Kurosawa's Ran [King Lear] or Throne of Blood [Macbeth], for instance).

Not for nothing, but isn't the Richard III you are referencing a "re-telling" of the original story?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

I really enjoyed Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet (and yeah, I think it counts as a pretty different story), but if you think that's too close then I'll go with the substantially Hamlet-inspired The Lion King.

Favorite three talking animals from the movies (animated or otherwise)?


Jason Nelson wrote:

The fly, the heroin addict crocodile and the bunny who thinks he has aids, all from "Meet the Feebles".

Q: Movie that you saw as a child then re-watched as an adult and disliked/were disappointed/realized it didn't age well/etc?

(Mine would be the original animated Lion Witch and Wardrobe. I remember the animation much better than it actually was.)

That would be every movie I loved as a kid and then enthusiastically tried to share with Mrs. Gersen, only to stare in horror at the screen and at her annoyed reaction to the farce thereon.

But that's not one movie, so the question remains.

100 Million Years B.C. Rachel is still hawt. The Dinos not so much by today's standard. Loved it when I was young though.

Favorite three Rachel Welch movies?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Fantastic Voyage; Mother, Jugs, and Speed; and I'll have to say Legally Blonde.

3 favorite movies starring people who were primarily comedians (not just people who started out doing standup and left it behind, like Tom Hanks or Billy Crystal, but who are more famous as comedians than as actors) who were not playing themselves?

(P.S. To add to the degree of difficulty, no one who was ever a Saturday Night Live cast member!)

Caddy Shack Rodney Dangerfield
Bill and Ted's excellent adventure George Carlin
The adventures of Ford Fairlane Andrew "Dice" Clay

3 favorite movies with musician actors but are primarily known as musicians and not playing themselves?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Toy Story 2 could maybe count, since Robert Goulet provides the singing voice of Wheezy the Penguin, but that seems like stretching it (as would Bing Crosby as the narrator of Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow), so how about...

James Brown, John Lee Hooker, Chaka Khan, and Cab Calloway in The Blues Brothers

Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce Knowles in Dreamgirls

Whitney Houston in The Preacher's Wife

3 favorite war-related comedies?


Good Morning Vietnam

Soldat Bom

Stripes

Favourite movie by Ivan or Jason Reitman?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Ivan made a lot of good ones, but I'll have to go with Ghostbusters (for which he also performed the voices of Zuul and Slimer).

Favorite 3 movies with Carl Reiner involved, whether acting or directing?

Leroy Jethro Gibbs No contest.

For movies he was good in The Presidio.

Favorite five Sean Connery movies?


Mark Harmon plays a great villain opposite Tom Selleck in Crossfire Trail, and underrated TV movie.


Can't stand Sean Connery outside the first 3 or so James Bond movies, so I'll take a pass on that one. I like the spoofs of him on SNL's "Celebrity Jeopardy," though!

Never saw it. I need to look it up. He had some steamy scenes with Mimi Rogers in something called Basic Deception.

Btw- You don't have to like Sean Connery to like some of the good movies he was in.

Cheers,

Mazra

OK, you got me.

I liked:
1. Dr. No
2. The Man Who Would Be King
3. The Great Train Robbery
4. The Molly Maguires -- International Socialist Workers' Revolution!
5. Highlander

I did it!
Rate the Highlander movies in order of OK-ness.
Mine:

Spoiler:
1 - 2 - 3 - 4.
(1) was original; (2) was fun and didn't take itself too seriously, and pisses of the fanbois which I find endlessly amusing; (3) sucked balls; and (4) I had no idea who any of the people or organizations were, or what was going on, so I can't even rate it.

    1. This Is Spinal Tap

    4. The Sure Thing

    Favorite Christopher Guest role NOT in a Rob Reiner film?


    First one I can think of off the top of my head:

    The Long Riders

    It was all right.

    Jesse James Musical Interlude

    He makes a good legend, but irl he was a racist sociopath scumbag. Or so I've read.

    Favorite western about a real life historical personage?

    Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

    Either The Ballad of Grigorio Cortez or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

    Favorite movie (including TV movies and miniseries) about the U.S. Civil War?


    Well, my favorite movie with a scene in the Civil War is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but it's probably stretching it to say it's about the Civil War.

    Glory

    Favorite Denzel movie other than the above?

    EDIT--Wow, did they really need Orff for that trailer? A bit over the top, I thought.

    Not a big Denzel fan, but Training Day was quite good, I thought.

    Favorite 3 Scott Glenn roles?
