Still to Come, in the 50s


Speaking of being less than halfway through, we're only seven films out from the midpoint of my favorite films countdown. I probably won't be able to post again until Friday evening or so, but coming up in the next seven entries, none of which are ties: a sassy lass, a Southern sojourn, a spiky self-caricature, a Hollywood memoir, a wharfside melodrama, a whole lot of goo, and a guy who totally gets eaten. Think you know where we're going? You know where to post your guesses. I'll be polling you, too, for your favorites among #s 51-100, because list-making should never be confined to just one person.

Ooh, I'm thinking Junebug, certainly my favourite Southern sojourn at the moment. On the Waterfront seems the obvious choice for wharfside melodrama, particularly since Pickup on South Street is already in your top 100. I'll have a guess at the others later.

for some reason i thought you didn't love On the Waterfront but maybe i'm remembering incorrectly --so many films. so many conversations.

I'm wondering if the spiky self-caricature is Being John Malkovich, if the sassy lass is Tumbleweeds, if the Hollywood memoir is Postcards from the Edge (?) and if the guy getting eaten is The Cook, The Thief..., even though you say below you almost walked out of it.

I'm stumped for goo, though. Ghostbusters gets my own goo vote, but it's not on your site...

Could "a whole lot of goo" be the original Blob?

That did occur to me too, but again, not on the site...
