    - Halloween Kills, just because I love Halloween 1978, and Halloween 2018 was surprisingly solid - mainly because of JLC. And she's back in this one.
    - Mulan. Really? Yeah, I know, I had no interest in the movie until I saw the trailer. It actually looks decent. And they cast Gong Li, which immediately scores points with me.

    Others that I will see, but aren't particularly excited about:
    - WW84, because the first one was solid
    - Ghostbusters: Afterlife, just because they seem to be doing something interesting with the premise.
    - No Time to Die: It's Bond. I see Bond moves in the theater, no exceptions.
    - Godzilla vs. Kong: yes, really. Last year's Godzilla movie was fun schlock.

    Nothing else on the list remotely interests me. Some make me actively angry.

    Do you watch any films that aren't remakes, reboots or sequels?

    I know, right?

    I actually do watch and enjoy original movies, but I usually watch them after I hear a bit more about them, or on home media, unless I know the director. I anticipate the “remakes, reboots or sequels” because I know what to expect going in.

    I'm really looking forward to it.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Yes, cry pardon.

    It probably deserves a rewatch. I was on a huge Hitchcock binge years ago, plowing through films like Psycho, Rear Window, Birds, Strangers on a Train, Rope, Dial M for Murder and I watched Rebecca after those and it's just much slower than the other films and I had a really hard time getting into it. It's not bad, it's just not one of my favorite Hitchcock films.

    I love Rebecca but it is the one film Hitch made in America that he had the least amount of control over. Selznick had a lot of the power there and his influence can definitely be seen. Still love it though.

    Great list, Mae. I need to familiarize myself with most of those movies, though.

    My wife and I were watching The Good Doctor last night and an actress came on the screen. My wife said "Hey, it's Lola!" I had no idea what she was talking about.

    She started singing: "Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl...". I was like ok, that's a Barry Manilow... what's that have to do with this actress?

    So apparently there is a made-for-tv movie called Copacabana from 1985. Last night was the first time I'd learned of it's existence. Which is pretty amazing since my mother-in-law and sister-in-law absolutely LOVE Barry Manilow.

    I found a DVD of the movie on Amazon for $92.19.

    That's better than I thought. I don't know which reviewers or people were saying that. I will try to check it out.

    This is amazing. 2 brothers spent 8 years making a shot for shot remake of Toy Story 3 using real toys/people and stop motion.

    I'm boycotting Collider after their recent firings. I thought the way they did it was unprofessional.

    I have really enjoyed this series. I found quite a few films that I haven't heard of, which is not easy to do. Many of them have been added to my watchlist.

    Also, I know I posted this on FB, but I wanted to add it here too:

    It's funny, while reading part 5, I noticed how many films made your list that were made by female directors. I almost commented but decided to wait until I read part 6. Then I noticed your little blurb where you talk about how many female directors made the list!
    We're on the same page with that. I think the main factor in why so many females are making films that go under the radar is the simple fact that they are making different kinds of films. Often times their subject matter is much more quiet in nature and more thought-provoking.
