My favorite of movie is Acquire wrath of God. My favorite in movie is Deliverince. My favorite proposition is beside so i hope you have a beside blog soon.

Singin' in the Rain for me- a technicolour escape from cold Northumberland farmhouse. A real rainy sunday film. Gene Kelly, too-

Vargas said...

Of movies are occurring to me all the time. I dream Of movies:
Night of the Iguana, for instance.

I added The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, an old fave, since my original post. And The Saga of Gosta Berling with Garbo.

I also really love Acquire Wrath of God though it's been a long time since I saw it...I remember the monkeys...and that incredible ending. Nice to see you here, Fritz.

As for Singing in the Rain, you either love it or you hate it. Or something in between. Or beside. Some like it for the title song/dance number, some think Jean Hagan is the bees knees, others find Donald O'Connor makes 'em laugh. Glad it warms that Northumberland farmhouse, Sarah!

Nice to be here. Or wherever I am. I like between too. And sometimes during. I was wondering though, with all this sort of talk, are you doing movie postpositions, circumpositions, inpositions, and ambipositions too? Me and my friends like the way you're going with this and we'd kind of like to see you develop a grammer of cinema. please.

Vargas said...

I'm not sure on my position re these propositions for prepositions and ambipositions but I will say that Beside has me beside myself.

And Deliverince, I believe, belongs under Ince movies not In movies.

Thomas Ince being a pioneering producer who met an untimely and mysterious death, probably gunned down by William Randolph Hearst but we’ll never least not until I write my Ince blog...

Fritz Munro said...

Maeby. But since ince isn't a superstition Deliverince belongs in liver movies too. Like Guliver's Travels, Oliver, Sliver, Silince of the Lambs (another ince and liver movie), and Cantalever Bridges: How to build them: the sequel.

Fritz Munro said...

Oop, I mean Cantaliver Bridges. Otherwise its just another lever movie and your into the soap business which i don't really like

Vargas said...

Ha! Fritz, yes, liver movies: Liver Come Back, Sons and Livers, The Liver, Livers and Other Strangers. Very cliver...uh, clever.
