WC 062420



This week is the movie or book I go to for a pick me up.  


There are two movies I go to to destress. The first is The Fifth Element. Click here for a previous post describing why it is the greatest escape movie of all time.
Berthold Gambrel also posted a review of the movie.







The second movie is Friendly Persuasion. Click here  and here for two previous posts on how it's a movie I remember watching at a drive-in when I was eight years old and have enjoyed it all my life.
For an in-depth understanding of this marvelous movie, unfortunately only seen sporadically on AMC and Tuner Classic Movies. Click here

Fifth Element is indeed a great movie. I'm so glad you posted about it; otherwise I probably never would have seen it. And thanks also for the link.

P M Prescott said...

You're welcome, Berthold. Glad you liked it.

Echo Ishii said...

I rewatched that a week or so ago. It was alot of fun.

Lydia said...

I'd never even heard of Friendly Persuasion. Very cool.

I love Gary Cooper movies. I'll have to check out Friendly Persuasion. Nice!

Marianne Arkins said...

I love classic movies, but never heard of "Friendly Persuasion". I'll check it out!

"Fifth Element" hurt my head, lol. I've tried watching it a few times but, ow.

I always forget about The Fifth Element and then I'll randomly find it on TV and remember how much I love it. Haven't ever heard of Friendly Persuasion, but will have to look for it now, I think!

Lydia, if you can get your hands on a copy or steam it you'll love it.

Megan it was by far his best.

Marianne it can be loud. You'll enjoy Friendly Persuasion

P M Prescott said...

Glad you like Fifth Element, it's a romp. Try to watch Friendly Persuasion.

P M Prescott said...

Nice we enjoy the same movie, Tena

Michael Mock said...

Fifth Element is one of mine also, but I don't believe I've ever watched Friendly Persuasion. I'll have to fix that.

P M Prescott said...

Thanks, Michael. It's an enjoyable movie.

Catherine said...

Films you see at the cinema as a kid are always special I think. I love turner classic movies!

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for coming by, Catherine.

Cathryn Hein said...

Gawd, it's been so long since I watched The Fifth Element I've completely forgotten what it's about. But it has Bruce, so must have been awesome!

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for coming by Cathryn.

I always forget about Fifth Element, but you can't beat Gary Oldman.

P M Prescott said...

Tanith, the entire cast was amazing. Oldman is a chameleon. He's different in every movie he's done.
