--Name: Corrine Sasser - agonystar, Corrie to my friends.

--Age: 26

--Location: Spokane, Washington

--What are your top 5-10 favorite movies of the '60s? Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf, Rosemary's Baby, Marnie, Psycho, The Apartment, Barefoot In The Park, Valley Of The Dolls, The Odd Couple, Breakfast At Tiffany's

--What are your top 5-10 favorite movies of the '70s? The Shining (OK, it was 1980, so sue me), The Omen, Blazing Saddles, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Grease, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Carrie, The Exorcist, Harold and Maude and Chinatown

--Who are your 10 favorite actresses and actors? Frances McDormand, Tom Hanks, Lili Taylor, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, John Cusack, Walter Matthau, Audrey Hepburn

--If you could become a character in any movie, which character and movie would it be and why? Rose from "Dogfight". I have a lot of respect for Lili Taylor and think she's an amazing actress. She's publically humiliated by someone, but later on they fall in love and she loses her virginity to him (or so we're led to believe.) She's sweet, soft, but strong. And when Eddie (River Phoenix) returns home from Vietnam, she's the person that he comes to see. Just thinking about it makes me cry. Runners-up would be Helen from "The World According To Garp", Holly from "Breakfast At Tiffany's", and Rizzo from "Grease", Maude from "Harold and Maude" or Ruth from "Fried Green Tomatoes".

--What movies do you think were most overrated? The entire LOTR trilogy. They were long and boring, and I wasn't impressed.

--What 2 performances (one male, one female)do you think were robbed of an Oscar nomination and of an Oscar itself (one of each per nod and win)? Tippi Hedren for Marnie. Her portrayal of a woman running from her past was amazing. And Robin Williams for "The World According To Garp". For the scene in the house at Dog's Head Harbor where his mouth is wired shut and he's in so much pain you can literally see it and feel it...he's lost his youngest son, his wife was unfaithful, and he can't find the words to explain how much he's hurting.

--Which 2 Academy Award winning roles (one male, one female) do you think were most deserved? Nicole Kidman for The Hours and Jamie Foxx for Ray

--What year was your favorite and why? 1968 - the year of "Rosemary's Baby" and "2001: A Space Odyssey".

--What was your reason for joining this community? I'm a huge film buff, and I'm also a member of thenewhollywood, so figured I would check this one out.

  Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream, it takes over as the number one hormone; it bosses the enzymes; directs the pineal gland; plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to film is more film. --Frank Capra

  Hello, all...I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I’m about to embark on a search for the following titles, which I have wanted to see for a number of years, yet have never found in video rental stores, libraries, seen on TV, etc. Do you recommend these movies?

Figures in a Landscape (1971, with Robert Shaw and Malcolm McDowell)
The Parallax View (1974, with the great Warren Beatty...I actually think this isn’t all that “obscure,” but everywhere I look just doesn't seem to have it)
Targets (1968, I think it’s Bogdanovich’s first feature?)
The Panic in Needle Park (early Al Pacino vehicle - the screenplay was co-written by Joan Didion, one of my favorite authors, and was inspired by a photo-essay by possibly my favorite photojournalist, Bill Eppridge)

I just want to make sure what I'm getting into before purchasing a used copy off of eBay for $16 or something...if there are any more “obscure” classics you’d recommend, I’d love to hear them! Thanks a lot, guys!

--Age: 18
--Location: school in Lawrence, KS, home in Omaha, NE
--What are your top 5-10 favorite movies of the '60s? MIDNIGHT COWBOY, Dr. Strangelove, Z, The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, If..., Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, you know, the usual....
--What are your top 5-10 favorite movies of the '70s? oh dear...All the President's Men, Dog Day Afternoon, Marathon Man, The Boys From Brazil, The Sting, The Conversation, The French Connection, A Clockwork Orange, Domicile Conjugal (Bed & Board), Chinatown...oh yeah, and Mad Max, baby.
--Who are your 10 favorite actresses and actors? (in no particular order) Dustin Hoffman, Toshiro Mifune, Al Pacino, Roy Scheider, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Klaus Kinski, Tracey Ullman, Julie Christie, Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster....and Michael J. Fox, of course!
--If you could become a character in any movie, which character and movie would it be and why? Marty McFly, of Back to the Future fame. The vest-jacket. The hooverboard. The DeLorean. Not to mention the ability to time-travel!
--What movies do you think were most overrated? Hmm. I know I'm supposed to keep this in the context of the 60's/70's, but since I'm too unqualified in that area to make sound judgements, I'll just say Garden State; I actually really enjoyed that movie, but after all the hype from my friends and reviewers, I think my expectations were a little too high.
--What 2 performances (one male, one female) do you think were robbed of an Oscar nomination and of an Oscar itself (one of each per nod and win)? eeesh. I'm not going to make a fool of myself and pretend to know what I'm talking about, so I'll just say...uh...I guess Albert Finney never winning ANYTHING is kind of sad...same with Martin Scosese - I know, I know, obviously not an actor....but still, the Oscars are quirky little things.
--Which 2 Academy Award winning roles (one male, one female) do you think were most deserved? I'm glad that Adrien Brody won for The Pianist. And that Hilary Swank won for Boys Don't Cry, although Annette Bening was very deserving as well.
--What year was your favorite and why? 1975? Hell, I like 'em all.
--What was your reason for joining this community? I don't know what it is about films made during the late60's/through the 70's, but there's just something that's so much more honest and sincere about them. I mean, you have films like that from every era, but it seems like the 70's was the only time when studios were more concerned with funding movies based on quality and not just how much they'd make at the box office on opening weekend. Or maybe I'm just being naïve.

I will most likely have more time on my hands, so I shall get across to initiating more projects for this community, such as trivia and requests, movie reviews and notifications.

I ask you all to sincerely attempt to do the same and put in some effort once I do xP. It would be nice to get some discussions, chats, polls, and debates going.

Also, recent applicants have given me the incentive for a new question that I neglected to discover. Since I asked what was the most "overrated" movie, I should now ask what was most "underrated". Anyone who wants to, feel free to make a post about that. Also, a certain question about Oscar winners who deserved nominations and wins confuses some because of my shoddy wording, so to make it easier, I shall split that question into 2 seperate questions.

I think that's it for now. By the way, who here has seen the following movies? I have listed my ratings, out of 5 stars, next to them. Comment and inform us all what you think about the ones you have seen and any other recent debuts that I have yet to view:

01. American Wedding, ***1/2
02. Intolerable Cruelty, ***1/2
03. Mystic River, ****
04. Kill Bill: Volume 1, ****1/2
05. Gothika, ***
06. Whale Rider, ****
07. The Last Samurai, ***1/2
08. Eurotrip, ****
09. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, ****
10. Dawn Of The Dead, ***

Can't wait to hear from you!
....I swear, I'm forgetting some good ones....

Bruce Campbell, and Kevin Smith. . . As fickle cop-outs go..
These are really just people I would like to get drunk..
Ah, but I digress. . .

--If you could become a character in any movie, which character and movie would it be and why?
Probably Janet in Rocky Horror because Susan Sarandon's
breasts were wonderful in that film. And because her character was corrupted on numerous occasions..
Or Annie in Annie Hall. She is the ideal.

--What movies do you think were most overrated?
The Exorcist did not terrify me, which was disappointing. But
I'm a heathern. Underrated? Every Which Way But Loose.

--What 2 performances (one male, one female)do you think were robbed of an Oscar nomination and of an Oscar itself (one of each per nod and win)?
Gregory Peck in The Omen.
Ruth Gordon in Harold and Maude. No, I don't live in reality.

--Which 2 Academy Award winning roles (one male, one female) do you think were most deserved? They may not have been the most deserved, but they were my favorite.
Diane Keaton "Annie Hall" and Marlon Brando in "The Godfather"

--What year was your favorite and why? 1977. I want Annie Hall, I want to be Annie Hall. I have a 1977 tattoo. It's divine providence.

--What was your reason for joining this community? Because I love people who rock it hard-core classic style.
