My intro

--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!

--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.
