I am definitely going to try to finish this alphabet challenge this weekend. I should be able to do it with no problem as long as real life don't get in the way.
You will have enough days leaving to do a reverse alphabet marathon ;)

 :laugh: I don't think so... I would maybe be able to do it if I was still watching horror... but without including my horror titles this was hard enough.  :P

I am definitely going to try to finish this alphabet challenge this weekend. I should be able to do it with no problem as long as real life don't get in the way. I even looked ahead to see what I feel like watching....

This is subject to change for any reason...

- Twister
- Underdog
- Vertigo (On-Demand)
- Wonder Woman
- X-Men 2: X-Men Unite
- Young and Innocent (Alfred Hitchcock set)
- Zorro's Black Whip (3hr Movie Serial!)

Well looks like I already have to make a switch... can't watch Underdog... I am up to "U" and Britt still in bed so don't want to interrupt her just to borrow one of her movies.

believe me... it wasn't as easy as it looked! I just been in a movie kick the past week. The actual choosing of the titles was pretty hard. I wasn't expecting to have to use some movies off cable's On-Demand!

Outlaw Women (1952)  In Cinecolor  75m
Directed by Samuel Newfield and Ron Ormond
Cast: Marie Windsor, Richard Rober, Maria Hart, Allan Nixon, Jackie Coogan, Brad Johnson

A lot of westerns are serious and grim...this one, not so much.  This movie deals with the town of Las Mujeres (which translates into English as "The Women") which is run by women...we specifically center on a gambling house and the woman (Windsor) who runs it as well as the town and what happens when it collides with both good and bad men who want to come in and take charge (as well as robbing a bank of a dying town that is transferring it's funds to another bank).  There is humor in here as well as the gunplay (including Jackie Coogan as a pitchman who goes from hawking his magic elixir to becoming a bartender at the gambling house.  In the end, law and voting comes to Las Mujeres...since the women don't have the vote yet and can't hold political office, it's the men who are officially in charge.  But not much has changed...the women are still bossing the men around in a not-too-obvious way.  I enjoyed this movie.  It'll never replace The Magnificent Seven in the Western Hall of Fame but it's a fun easy-to-take film.   ;D

OK - I managed to post another review. Alias - Season 1 (pulling the Achim  ;) ).
My Rating:


That's 2 down, 5 to go. Considering one of my 2 is a 22 episode TV season I think I'm doing pretty good.  :tv: Wait till you see what my "Y" is  :training:

Somehow I must have screwed up my post for my 1st review. I though I put it in this thread but I guess not.  :shrug: Closed the wrong tab would be my guess  :bag:

Good grief.  :suicide:

Well done, Pete! Have you ever thought of doing one of those TV marathons they occasionally do screenings for? Like an entire season of X-Files in one day. :whistle:

You got 2 out of 5, so I thought it's confirmed you're doing vowels. Is "Y" a vowel now...? :stars:
