Introducing a new, sticky topic on the Mystery Movie forum - and it could run and run!

What movie did you see yesterday?

Whether you loved it or hated it, share it with us here. It doesn't have to be a mystery movie - although mysteries are always welcome.

I'll start the ball rolling with -

The Ladykillers (1955) starring Alec Guinness. I've loved this comedy for years and years, and it never loses its charm.

Happy viewing.

Yesterday it was Calamity Jane (1953), aired by TCM in honor of Doris Day's 90th birthday, starring Doris along with Howard Keel and Allyn Ann McLerie.

Lots of fun and great songs.

I watched Rock of Ages. That show has so many unknowns in it and they are just fabulous. Along with the greats of course! A very entertaining movie. They play and sing and dance to most genres. It's Fab!

I actually watched Jack Reacher yesterday and for the third time. It really is true that if you watch a movie more than once, chances are you will see something that you didn't see the first time. It is a fun movie so it can be watched more than once and watching it for the third time, I noticed stuff that I didn't the first two times I saw it. Then I wondered how the heck I had missed that stuff the other times around.

I will probably watch it again next week too.

I started watching Contagion (2011) last night but couldn't stay with it.

Usually these 'race against time to find cure for deadly virus' movies are quite fun, but this one took itself way too seriously. I think the director (Steven Soderbergh) was going for a documentary/naturalistic style, but for 'naturalistic' read 'lots of scenes take place in near total darkness and the actors mumble a lot.'

One reason I like classic movies so much is that they mostly stick with the Noel Coward acting technique of "speak up and don't bump into the furniture".

Stars Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne (both of whom I like a lot in other things), Marion Cotillard and several other well-knowns.

Yesterday I watched Witness for the Prosecution (1957), starring Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich and Charles Laughton.

It's a murder mystery based on an Agatha Christie play, so a double whammy for me! Most people probably know the plot and the ending, but it's still well worth seeing.

I watched on the TCM channel, but it's also available on Amazon Instant Video and Netflix.

Is this the same Ladykillers that starred Tom Hanks? Is it a remake of the classic movie?

Hi Vance,

Yes, The Ladykillers of 2004, starring Tom Hanks, is a remake of the 1955 original. The setting is moved from London to somewhere in southern USA, and the crooks plan to rob a casino.

Have you seen this version? I haven't - although I like Tom Hanks and many of the Coen brothers' movies. I've avoided it because I love the original so much and I thought this might take something away from it.

I watched the young Elvis in Jailhouse Rock (1957) yesterday. Not the greatest plot, but it's a fun movie with some good songs.

Elvis' co-star was Judy Tyler, who was killed, at age 24, in a car accident only a couple of weeks after filming ended. Elvis was so upset by the tragedy that he never watched the finished movie.
