The Movie Queue Game

Inspired by Robbo's recent movie bleg which revealed the names of several movies I would like to add to my Netflix queue, I thought I would start one of those Internet meme/game thingies to get yet more ideas for my already-lengthy list and maybe inspire some of y'all to try some of these.

Here's what you do:

1. Go to your Netflix (or Blockbuster online) queue.
2. List ALL of the movies in the queue (at the very least, try to list at least the first ten).
3. Italicize (or bold) the ones you've seen before.
3a. (OPTIONAL) include snarky commentary or thumbnail reviews where desired.
4. Tag 3 people.

This is what's currently in my queue:

I'm tagging Rob, The Country Pundit, and Professor Hall.

You haven't seen "Cool Hand Luke" or "Buckaroo Banzai" yet?!! Also, I would drop the let-down that was "Ocean's Twelve" if I were you. Just a piece of uninvited advice.

I haven't seen Cool Hand Luke.

I -- theoretically -- saw Buckaroo Banzai during the spring semester of my freshman year at UT. However, I don't remember anything about it. We'll leave it at that in case I'm ever nominated to the Supreme Court.

I have to include some things in the queue to appease my wife and kids, and Ocean's Twelve falls into that category.

That is, Ocean's Twelve is to appease my wife. Not my kids.

Forbidden Planet is actually pretty good scifi for the 50's. I have a sneaking suspicion that it heavily influenced people like Gene Roddenberry. Unfortunately, I can't shake the post-Airplane! version of Leslie Nielson from my mind so found myself laughing even when he was trying to be serious.

Love Actually is, I hope, for the Missus. It made me retch.

Why remake "Pink Panther"? Why remake "Psycho"? Mostly it is because Hollywood is a place of little imagination and a lot of yes-people.

Sometimes remakes turn out good (Lord of the Rings or Galactica). But usually I wish they'd leave well enough alone (Robert Wise's "The Haunting" worked great in B&W and no SFX...all the CGI in the world couldn't save the dreck that was the remake).

Given all the books on my shelves, I wish Hollywood would expand their horizons a tad. What's next? A remake of Kubrick's "The Shining"? Thank the Maker they remake of "Forbidden Planet" seems to have died...
