Movies I Watched in May

Cary Grant in Destination Tokyo (1944)

Pretty great movie month! Not much on TCM that I wanted to watch so most are from elsewhere. If you haven't checked out Tubi, well, you need to. Lots of great movies! If you ever want to know where I found one of the movies I watched just leave a comment. I dog-sat for my cousin again so I was able to watch some things on her Disney+ (there's not enough on there that I'm interested in for me to subscribe. If they ever put all the episodes of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color though...).

Least Favorite Film: Didn't have any.

Favorite Movie: Oscar was hilarious. I always thought the trailer for Paris When it Sizzles looked stupid but I was pleasantly surprised to find it very funny! Holden looked a little rough but it's definitely a movie I'll watch again. If you're a fan of Downton Abbey, the new movie was perfect. I laughed, I sobbed... they need to just start the series up again already!! Also really enjoyed The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming.

Favorite Line: "Like, bonjour, baby." - Tony Curtis in Paris When it Sizzles (1964).

Can't stop singing this.


  1. Paris When It Sizzles is a favorite of mine, I love how well it describes writer's block and Curtis is hilarious in it (I never tire of the name changing gimmick)!

  2. Oscar and The Russians are Coming! The Russians are Coming! are two of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I love them both sooooo much!

    1. BTW, I tagged you here with the Mad About Ladd tag today. Play if you want to :-)

  3. I think I've seen the ending of The Russians are Coming, but I want to see the whole thing some time. And I've wanted to see The Moon Spinners for AGES. Of these I've only seen Swiss Family Robinson, and that's one of my favorites. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the new Downton Abbey movie! I wasn't a fan of the last one, but I'll probably see this new one with my sister sometime.
