    Sweden's great Ingrid in that one! 

    Love Casablanca. The greatest movie ever made? Maybe.

    Seriously!  So many great lines that have stood the test of time and are still quoted regularly.  Love, love, love this movie.

    I like Toy Story.  We went to the theater to see the most recent one and the kid loved it.
    I will admit that I was reading the credits, saw names such as John Lasseter, Joss Whedon, and Tim Allen, and thought fuck this movie before it even began. 
    Wait, should I be mad at Whedon for something? I love his work.
    There are stories coming out about the way he (mis)treated people from as far back as the Buffy days.
    Look up the Ray Fisher or Charisma Carpenter news stories to start. 
    Also, SMG, Amber Benson, and Michelle Trachtenberg. Even James Marsters has revealed an abusive interaction with JW when Spike was becoming hugely popular with fans. It’s so disappointing, but really not surprising. There were so many clues in the way characters were treated as well as the way SMG announced leaving the show.

    Are you talking about the Daniel Radcliff movie "The Woman in Black"? I know that one somehow had some swedish money involved, because the Swedish company "Film i väst/Film in West" where I work sometimes had a poster up for it in their lobby back in the day...

    Or du you mean the movie "Damen i svart" (The lady in black") from 1958? 

    I have not seen that.... I've seen two movies in that series (of five films)... the follow up Mannäkäng i rött (Mannequin in Red?), also from -58 I saw a few years back with my mom. It was fun seeing old time Sweden on film in color, and was remastered so it looked great. 





    We also watched "Ryttare i blått" (Horserider in blue?) from 1959 but I remember it feeling cheaper.

    But it was like... ordinary "thrillers/Detective stories"... but I guess if you want to go through them you should start with the first one.

    The Art Direction is great in that first shot.  (The windows - wait, is there a person hanging there?)

    I won't tell you. Haha.

    But the opening titles are charming:

    The Dig
    My husband picked it.  I liked it much more than I expected to.  I didn't think anybody but English majors knew or cared about Sutton Hoo, so I was surprised that someone would make a movie about its discovery.  There's some drama thrown in with various characters to make it more, I don't know, relatable.  I enjoyed it, but my prince and I were both English majors.  :lol:

    English Lit & Language - but I did not recall Sutton Hoo. 
    Guess the discovery was too late for the stuff I studied, although I am interest in what they found.
    Will check it out.

    That's cool.  I was a medievalist, so it seemed like all my textbooks had something about Sutton Hoo.  :lol:
    Without any spoilers, it's about the excavation of a 6th century burial ship of an Anglo-Saxon king.  So the movie isn't an action adventure but it's still interesting to see how it was excavated, especially about the amateur archaeologist who discovered it and the beautiful things that were found there.

    Same here. I adore both leads.

    And Frances’ eyes. Damn. I’m almost more taken with them than I am her acting chops.
