Most Anticipated Films of 2017

"Word from Sundance is that "Call Me By Your Name" is ravishing. I doubt it will be an Oscar contender, but we'll see." -Raul

"Bigelow is No 1 for me. Her last two films are brilliant works. And the Gloria Grahame bio with The Bening is way up there." - Brookesboy

What's on your cinematic mind. Anything? You've been uncharacteristically silent. I think I'm off to the movies myself --> Miss Peregrine because why not?

Two Questions Inspired By Ghostbusters

I'm off to a Ghostbusters (2016) screening and these questions and a desire to hear your answers suddenly struck me:

1. Which male heavy movie would you most love to see rethunk with a female heavy cast?

2. If you had a vote for Best Original Song in 1984 which of the hit single nominees would you have gone for? (They were all huge hits)

"Against All Odds" (Against All Odds)
"Footloose" (Footloose)
"Ghostbusters" (Ghostbusters)
"I Just Called To Say I Love You" (The Woman in Red)
"Let's Hear It For the Boy" (Footloose)

...or would you have chucked out the nominees altogether to have "I Can Dream About You" (Streets of Fire) "The Heat is On" (Beverly Hills Cop) "Love Came For Me" (Splash), "Together Again" (The Muppets Take Manhattan), "Almost Paradise" (Footloose), "The Never Ending Story" (The Never Ending Story), "Together in Electric Dreams" (Electric Dreams), or maybe five songs from Purple Rain (even though it won an Oscar for Song Score - more Oscars for Prince!!!
