I've just watched Charade, it was soooooo good!!! Seeing Cary Grant and Audrey together my heart was melting.

Hope you all have good time watching Audrey's movies!

I downloaded an Audrey Hepburn collection on torrent, it was like 15 of her movies. I've seen just a few.
Roman Holiday is one film I recommend, its so cute and in a way it isnt so corny. Plus, Gregory Peck is just

I was rethinking this challenge, given that I'll probably make it to 100 before I know it.

I think that I am going to make it my real movie challenge to watch 50 Asian movies. I'll update with my regular watch list as well, but I think this will be a harder goal for me.

So far:
1. A Separation (2011, Iran)
2. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000, Taiwan)
3. House (1977, Japan)
4. The Host (2006, Korea)

^Each to their own.

Considering i have already watched Breakfast At Tiffanys, i decided to watch How To Steal A Million (1966) with Peter O'Toole, it's a typical Audrey movie, filled with charm, and lets not forget the costumes by Hubert de Givenchy, it has a soft comedy aspect to it, like many films from that period, its set in Paris and Audrey's father is a con-man who rips off artists work and passes it off as the real thing and Peter O'Toole's character is there to catch him... in one scene Audrey ends up shooting Peter...

Blueorchid, I'm doing this as well and I'm all over the place. Of the 71 films I've seen so far this year, only 12 are Asians... most of which are the "mainstream" Chinese films (ie Wong Kar Wai, Zhang Yimou) that I haven't seen because my local video store sells them. There's so much more on my watchlist and it's discouraging that I can't find them online especially Asian film noir.... I'll look into your list as well for recommendations!

Also, I have a very ignorant question: is Wong Kar Wai's My Blueberry Nights counts as an Asian film? ughsoashamedimactuallyaskingthis

I´ve noticed that a lot of people watched Sixteen Candles... I was watching an episode of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" the other day -in which Molly Ringwald plays the mom- and they payed a little homage to the movie: the family forgets their daughter´s 16th birthday and Molly says “Everyone forgot my 16th birthday and it stayed with me my whole life!”
So sweet! it brought back happy memories from when I watched her movies years ago
