New Game

The Hostages stole this from yet another of our growing number of bloggers.

Name five movies you'd like to see a sequel to.

I really had to think about this. Many of my favorite movies do not have happy endings.

1. Captain Horatio Hornblower. This movie took up the middle three novels pretty well, and the A&E/BBC productions did the first 3 fairly well, but I'd like to go further and get the film version of Commodore Hornblower.

2. My Science Project. Yes, I know it was cheesy. I still laugh when I watch it. The idea of Dennis Hopper going back in time and putting his stamp on our present still makes me gigile.

3. People Will Talk. One of my favorite Cary Grant movies, and a great story about how wrong assumptions can be about the things people keep private. Make the second one about the authorities catching up with Shunderson, and Pretorius defending him.

4. Dance With Me. Yes, I know it was a chick flick, so shut up about that. I have fond memories of this movie. It was my first set of exams in law school, and I was wound tighter than a drum. My wife dragged me out to the movies when I was trying to live in my notes. I'm glad she did. It really was a nice story, I loved the music, and I relaxed and we had a wonderful evening.

5. The Shadow. Yes, I know it had one of those looney-tune Baldwins in it, but I have always loved that era and how it looked, and Jonathan Winters reminds me of my Grandpa.
