* First time viewing
* First time Marilyn movie viewing

Okay, I'm in. It can't be a big challenge right after the April one, so I'm going to go with "Chronological Marilyn". I've collected pretty much all of her movies over the years so I really should get around to watching more than the two or three I've seen up to now. I'll do them in order as best I can, except where I have to source the odd one from somewhere else. Maybe I'll find a few docs on her as well...(good conspiracy stuff, if I can find it).

May 1:
1. Norma Jean and Marilyn (1996) (my DVD) - Very disappointing start. This biopic makes Marilyn out to be a stark raving, schizophrenic lunatic. She didn't have a perfect life, or even mental state, but come on! Terrible disservice to a tragic life. I've got to be able to find a better one than this.
2. Ladies of the Chorus (1948) * (YouTube) - Marilyn's first big role. Nice little film for sure. Marilyn Sings!

May 2:
3.The Asphalt Jungle (1950) (library DVD) - Since I couldn't get my hands on a decent copy of The Marx Brothers' Love Happy, I moved on to this MGM film noir. It's a small role for her, but she is extremely noticeable here as the rising blonde bombshell.

May 3:
4.Home Town Story (1951) (my DVD) - Actually a propaganda film made for General Motors by MGM to show how wonderful it is for big corporations to make huge profits! Did you know we profit because they profit? Somehow I don't think it is proportional. Anyway, Marilyn made this movie while waiting for The Asphalt Jungle to be released. It was not released theatrically until about 12 years later, in Australia, just because Marilyn was in it. Anyway, she is only in it briefly, but again stands out from everyone else, while thwarting the advances of the Skipper from Giligan's Island.
5. Right Cross (1950) * (YouTube) - Another VERY brief appearance getting hit on by a reporter (hmmm, the Skipper was a reporter in the last movie too!). Clever double entendre about spaghetti though! Anyway, this one starred a young (was he ever young?) Ricardo Montalban as a boxer. I really liked it actually. Some good boxing sequences.

May 4:
6.
(2010) * (YouTube) - TV biography of Marilyn done by people who love/loved her. Interviews with costars and photographers, etc. Nice loving tribute.
7. All About Eve (1950) (my DVD) - The one that got Marilyn noticed and caused 20th Century Fox to offer her another contract. Again, not a lengthy part, but to outshine Bette Davis is no easy feat!
- also watched special feature: back story: All About Eve 25 min. TV doc

May 5:
8. As Young as You Feel (1951) (my DVD) - Her first part under her new Fox contract. And her screen time is about 6 minutes in a 76 minute movie! Even though she is a secretary again, she really gets to ham it up this time, sticking her tongue out at her boss and throwing a little tantrum. It was great! Nice little movie, too, about a gentleman forced to retire who impersonates the president of the parent company to get his job back. Hi-jinx ensues! No special features on this disc. Just trailers.
9. Love Nest (1951) * (my DVD) - Slight decline in exposure (only in one way though!) for Marilyn. about 4:20 of screen time, but about 30 seconds of that is in a pretty nice bathing suit (for the 50s anyway). Her role is much more insignificant than it was in the last one though... just an excuse for a little marital jealousy. Not much point to this little comedy, and if Marilyn had not been in it, I doubt it would be remembered at all today.

DNQ: Iron Man Three (2013) * (IMAX 3D) - could not come up with a connection to Marilyn, unfortunately.

May 6:
10. Let's Make It Legal (1951) * (my DVD) - Little comedy about a divorced woman being stalked and harassed by her ex husband while her conniving daughter tries manipulating everyone, including her own husband, so she doesn't have to get her lazy butt out of bed to care for her own baby. Hilarious, right?! Only 2:20 of Marilyn and no bikini this time. Extremely forgettable and a very slight part for M. Next!

May 7:
11. Clash By Night (1952) * (library DVD) - Wow! What a surprise! Fritz Lang directs this, and M gets forth billing and about 13:30 screen time! Big step up, and no forgettable comedy this time. A serious role in a serious movie. Made after signing her new 7 year deal with Fox, but she was loaned to RKO for this one. She's now making about 500 a week.

May 8:
12. We're Not Married! (1952) * (my DVD) - Cute little movie basically made up of 5 separate stories of how different couples deal with finding out their marriages aren't legal. Marilyn's segment is short (about 6 minutes or so) but cute. Some of the other couples are interesting as well.
13a. Blonde (Part 1) (2001) * (my DVD) - TV miniseries that distinctly says "Even though this story contains real people, it is a work of fiction.." Doesn't exactly instill confidence in the historical events portrayed! Anyway, I think I know enough that I can weed out the bogus stuff. Besides, it stars Poppy Montgomery as Marilyn, so it can't be all bad!

May 9:
13b. Blonde (Part 2) (2001) * (my DVD) - Second part of TV miniseries. A lot of inaccuracies for sure, but not quite as mean spirited to Marilyn as Norma Jean and Marilyn was. I loved her first dates/conversations with Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller. At least you could see why these men fell I love with her. Stupid how they made up relationships that never happened though. Clearly ran out of time and had to skip the Kennedy years though.
14. Don't Bother to Knock (1952) (my DVD) - This was the first MM movie I ever saw. I think it is great! It's her first starring role and she does well in a very serious role as an unstable girl given too much responsibility too soon. It's a "Marilyn Must See" as far as I'm concerned. Didn't bother to time her screen time. She's in the whole movie.

May 10:
15. O. Henry's Full House (1952) * (library DVD) - Not much Marilyn at all (about 1:20), but an extremely enjoyable movie! Five separate short stories by O. Henry are portrayed, of which MM is in the first. Each was interesting and, in a few cases, unpredictable (at least to me!).
16. Marilyn Monroe: Beyond the Legend (1987) * (library DVD) - Very nice documentary. Lots of great video clips and photos. Definitely recommend this one.

May 11:
17. Monkey Business (1952) (my DVD) - Very fun Howard Hawks comedy starring Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. Marilyn has about 11 minutes of screen time and is adorable of course... So's the monkey!
18. Niagara (1953) (my DVD) - Oh yes! This is the one! Every time I see it, I love it more! Such a great setting too. 1950's Niagara Falls, Canada. MM gets top billing and totally carries this movie. Amazing that this is the only movie where she plays a villain, unless you count Don't Bother to Knock. Anyway, you can't go wrong if this is your first Marilyn movie either. Marilyn Sings!

May 12:
19. Love Happy (1949) * (my new DVD ripped and watched on iPod) - A Marx Brothers movie in which MM appears for about 0:40. MM aside, who is worth every one of those 40 seconds by the way, I had no idea the Marx Brothers were so funny! I will definitely watch more! (Had to watch this one out of order due to availability.)
20. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) * (library Blu-ray) - Stunning on Blu-ray! I played a bit of my DVD after for comparison, and wow!, the BD blows away the DVD by far. Help me resist the urge to replace all my MM DVDs with BD! Anyway, believe it or not, this was my first viewing of this film! No joke! It really is quite entertaining and when MM is on the screen you don't even notice Jane Russell. When Jane performs alone though, she's quite good too! Marilyn Sings!

May 13:
21. How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) * (my DVD) - First movie ever in "CinemaScope" and they really took advantage of it. You can tell they were showing it off. The picture hasn't aged well though. I wonder if the Blu-ray is much better. Funny seeing Betty Grable play a dummer blonde than Marilyn!
22. River of No Return (1954) * (my DVD) - Marilyn in the gold rush days, filmed in Banff! Rafting down the Bow. Barely an hour from here. Cool! Marilyn Sings!

May 14:
23. There's No Business Like Show Business (1954) * (my DVD) - Well, it may be short on story, and Ethel Merman gets annoying quickly, but the musical numbers are fantastic! I love tap dancing and this thing is full of it! The dancing statues are great, and I'm pretty sure Dr. Who stole the idea for the weeping angel episodes! Now, my beef is waiting 28 minutes to get to Marilyn! and... Marilyn Sings!
24. The Seven Year Itch (1955) (my DVD) - Here it is! The pinnacle MM movie! "The Girl", skirt blowing over her head and everything, helps a man realize how much he loves his wife. "Maybe it's Marilyn Monroe!" he says! Clever!
- also watched special feature: back story: Seven Year Itch 25 min. TV doc

May 15:
25. Bus Stop (1956) * (my DVD) - What did I just watch? Was that really Marilyn Monroe? I heard that this was her best work acting but that is a HUGE understatement! I just can't get over how good she was in this! No wonder she was fighting with the studio for better roles. Whatever she did for that year in New York at The Actors Studio paid off here! Too bad the male lead was such an annoying moron. I wished he had been trampled by a bull half way through the movie. Not only that, but... Marilyn Sings! (poorly on purpose)

May 16:
26. My Week With Marilyn (2011) (my BD) - biopic covering the making of The Prince and the Showgirl. Amazing how much better I understand it after this month of researching.
27. The Prince and the Showgirl (1957) (my DVD) - The end results. Nice movie, but now my expectations are high after Bus Stop, but at least... Marilyn Sings! (part of one song anyway)

May 17:
28. Some Like It Hot (1959) (my BD) - The classic comedy felt by many to be the funniest movie of all time and certainly the funniest closing line ever! Jack Lemmon is a riot in this, and Tony Curtis doing his best Clark Gable is also fabulous! Marilyn definitely holds her own with these two yahoos as well! Very enjoyable to see this again. If you've not seen it run, don't walk, wherever you have to and see it now! And to top it all off.... Marilyn Sings!

May 18:
29. Let's Make Love (1960) * (my DVD) - Kind of went into this one blind. Didn't really know much about it and I had fallen behind in my reading so I really didn't know what to expect. I liked it more than I expected to. Cute little story, no real meat. Nothing new, that's for sure and a story that's been done a million times. It okay though. Some nice cameos for the time it was made, that's for sure. I was surprised to see Milton Berle suddenly on the screen, and Yves says, after being disappointed by him, "and 4 million people call you Uncle?" Anyway, having gone in blind, I was unaware that, here too... Marilyn Sings!

May 19: Star Trek Day!
DNQ: Star Trek (2009) (my BD) - If anyone can come up with a connection to MM, please let me know!
DNQ: Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) * (IMAX 3D) - ditto!

May 20:
30. The Misfits (1961) * (my DVD) - I was caught off guard by the fact that this movie was shot in black and white. Nothing I had seen, heard or read up to this point gave that impression. Regardless of that, Marilyn, in her last completed film, is stunning. The story was peculiar but held my interest. Very interesting sequences involving "modern day" cowboys doing what amounts to Mustang hunting. Sad to think this was the end of the road for her.
31. Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days (2001) (my DVD) - Includes the unfinished Something's Got To Give Excellent documentary covering the tumultuous last months of Marilyn's life during the attempts to make her final movie. Treated with the utmost care, poor Marilyn's final anguish is described sympathetically by all the participants, despite the real frustrations they felt at the time. Well worth the time of anyone interested in Marilyn.

May 22:
32. Insignificance (1985) (library BD) - Totally fictional story about a scenario where MM meets, and spends the night with, Albert Einstein while she's married to Joe DiMaggio ("The Ballplayer", even on his baseball card) and filming The Seven Year Itch. It also includes Joseph MacCarthy ("The Senator") with a Marilyn fetish and on the commy warpath for AE. None of them are referred to by their real names, or any names at all really. Interesting to see "The Actress" explain the theory of relativity to AE ("The Professor"). The story really gives her intelligence. Theresa Russell looks great, but is not a convincing Monroe. Anyway, it's good enough to be in the Criterion Collection, so enough said.

May 23:
33a. Smash: Season One (2012) * (library DVD)
Disc 1
Episode 1: Pilot
Episode 2: The Callback
Episode 3: Enter Joe DiMaggio
Episode 4: The Cost of Art

Episode 10: Understudy
Episode 11: The Movie Star
Episode 12: Publicity

Episode 14: Previews
Episode 15: Bombshell

May 26:
34. Smash: Season Two (2013) * (on-line)
Episode 01: Broadway
Episode 02: Fallout


DONE!!!

June 03:
Bonus: Move Over, Darling (1963) * (my DVD) - Since I just got this in the mail today, I am going to add it as a bonus selection. This was the movie that Marilyn was making when she died. It was made a couple years later with a new cast, including Doris Day and James Garner. Interesting to see the different ways of presenting the material between the two actresses. A very enjoyable movie.

First Viewings (Marilyn movies only) * : 15 BioPics/Docs: 6 Marilyn Sings!: 9

Re: The Fourth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2013 **List Thread**

After little deliberation and far too many thoughts and ideas that sounded better as theories than viable possibilities, I've decided to go with a Challenge that is slightly complicated, but essentially formulated to have me watch Star Trek: Voyager and some other things, if there's time. So I've decided to define it by letters in the titles of the things I will/intend to watch.

The ESTY (S, T) Challenge

TV episodes and films that begin (or end) with "ST," "S" or "T".
(With an option on titles containing "S--" words or the double "ss" sound.)

      Re: The Fourth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2013 **List Thread**

      My 3rd Annual Comic-Book Movie/TV Challenge!
      (movies/TV series based on comic books)

      Movies count as 1 entry.
      TV shows = 2 hour episodes or 4 half-hour episodes for 1 entry.

      Unless otherwise noted, all entries are from my personal DVD collection.

      April 1
      1. The Amazing Spider-Man
      (2012)

      April 2
      2. Thor
      (2011) Seen with commentary by director Kenneth Brannagh.

      April 3
      3. Iron Man 3
      (2013) Seen in movie theater for the second time. Since I live in Mexico, I had already seen it last Friday, ahead of the American premiere.

      April 4
      4. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1980) Episodes: Prometheus, parts 1 & 2
      5. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) Seen with commentary by producers Don Murphy and Trevor Albert and actors Shane West, Jason Flemyng and Tony Curran.

      April 5
      6. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1980) Episodes: Free fall / Dark side
      7. Iron Man: Extremis (2010) Motion comic from the graphic novel.

      April 6 - Nothing

      April 7
      8. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1980/81) Episodes: Deep Shock / Bring me the head of The Hulk

      April 8
      9. Men In Black 3
      (2012) This will probably be my only "first time view" since I didn't catch it during its theatrical run. And yes, it's based on a comic - albeit a very little known one published by Malibu Comics years ago.

      April 9
      10. Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
      (2010) Some pretty good action scenes and some deeper than usual themes highlight this DC Animated feature.

      April 10
      11. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1981) Episodes: Fast lane / Goodbye Eddie Cain Two incredibly boring episodes with crime-drama plots where The Hulk is almost a tacked-on afterthought.

      April 11
      12. Jonah Hex
      (1981) A second viewing doesn't make this film any better. What a wasted opportunity.
      13. The Incredible Hulk, S4 (1981) Episodes: King of the beach / Wax museum The first episode stars Lou Ferrigno in his first speaking role as an amateur bodybuilder, and yes there's a scene with himself and The Hulk together.

      April 12-14 - Nothing

      April 15
      14. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
      (2011) Way better than the first one (which isn't sayingt much, I admit), so don't let the naysayers fool you, this is in fact a pretty decent B movie. Give it another try if you saw it already.
      15. Swamp Thing, S1 (1990) Four half-hour episodes: The Emerald heart / Falco / Treasure / From beyond the grave

      April 16 - Nothing

      April 17
      16. The Fantastic Four
      (2005) The DVD I have is the extended version but do yourself a favor and stick with theatrical cut unless you want endless scenes of The Thing moping around feeling sorry for himself. The Fantastic Four are anything but fantastic since they can only think of getting rid of their extraordinary powers once they have them and there's very little super hero action.

      April 18
      17. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1981) Episodes: East winds / The harder they fall
      18. The Incredible Hulk, S4 (1981) Episodes: The first, parts 1 & 2

      April 19
      19. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1981) Episodes: Interview with The Hulk / Half Nelson

      April 20-21 - Nothing

      April 22
      20. Wonder Woman
      , S2 (1977) Episodes: Mind stealers from outer space parts 1 & 2
      21. Wonder Woman, S2 (1977/78) Episodes: The deadly toys / The light-fingered lady

      April 23
      22. Wonder Woman
      , S2 (1978) Episodes: Screaming Javelins / Diana's disappearing act

      April 24
      23. The Incredible Hulk
      , S4 (1981) Episodes: Danny / Patterns

      April 25
      24. The Incredible Hulk
      , S5 (1981) Episodes: The phenom / Two godmothers

      April 27
      25. Wonder Woman
      , S2 (1978) Episodes: Death in disguise / IRAC is missing

      April 28
      26. The Incredible Hulk
      , S5 (1981) Episodes: Veteran / Sanctuary

      April 29
      27. Dredd
      (2012) Pretty damn good movie that instantly wipes out the bad aftertaste of Sylvester Stallone's version.

      That's it - 27 entries. I'm frankly embarrassed by my low count. Only one first time view - Men In Black 3.

      Ash Ketchum’s Make-Your-Own-Challenge May 2013

      Anime VHS in Japanese with NO subtitles

      I have dozens of pre-recorded Japanese VHS tapes of movies and TV shows, both anime and live-action, all in Japanese with no subtitles. I decided to pick out only anime tapes from this collection for this challenge. Most are TV shows, some are movies and some are OAV (made-for-video animation). They span the 1960s to the 1990s. What’s striking about these tapes is how good they look on my Sony Bravia 32-inch screen, which is normally not terribly forgiving when it comes to VHS.


      Some of the stories are moderately easy to follow without subs, such as the sci-fi shows where giant monsters attack Tokyo, while the more complicated ones are harder to follow. But given the striking imagery in so many of these shows, I’d rather have them untranslated than not at all. With one exception, the images are scans of the VHS covers.

      * - First-time viewings
      1. *OSAMU TEZUKA’S BIG-X (1965, b&w, sci-fi TV series/TMS) Creator: Osamu Tezuka.
      #48. A Giant Jellyfish Appears

      #50. The Earth’s 5th Ice Age

      Giant robots team up to fight giant alien monsters. Cross-over spin-off of the Great Mazinger and Getter Robo G TV series.


      3. *MASK OF GLASS Vol. 1 (1998, 45 min., color, drama/OAV)
      Dir.: Tsuneo Kobayashi.
      Remake of a 1984 TV series about an adolescent girl who wants to be an actress. Based on a manga by Suzue Miuchi.


      4. *NEW CAPTAIN TSUBASA Vol. 3 (1989, 30 min., color, sports drama/OAV)
      Dir.: Osamu Sekita. Spin-off of a very popular earlier (1983-86) series about a young men’s soccer team.


      5. *RAINBOW SENTAI ROBIN (1966, b&w, sci-fi TV series/Toei)
      Vol. 1: #1, 11, 13, 28
      From the creator of Cyborg 009, Shotaro Ishinomori, comes this similar series about a team of super-robots led by a human leader, Robin.


      6. *OGON BAT (1967, color, fantasy adventure TV series)
      Vol. 2: Eps. 5-8

      8. The Space Monster
      A superhero with a golden skull mask comes to the rescue when our heroes confront assorted monsters. Based on a pulp fiction character created in Japan in the 1930s.


      7. *SABU TO ICHI TORIMONO HIKAE (SABU AND ICHI’S ARREST WARRANT, 1968, b&w, historical drama TV series/Toei)
      Vol. 1: Eps. 1-4
      Series Director: Rintaro.
      Sabu is a young policeman in Tokugawa-era Edo (Tokyo) and Ichi is a blind swordsman/masseur who assists him.


      8. *DORAEMON: BOKU MOMOTARO NO NANNA NO SA (WHAT AM I FOR MOMOTARO) (1981, 46 min., color, sci-fi comedy movie/Toho) Dir.: Takeyuki Kanda.
      Nobita and his entourage travel back to Old Japan, where Nobita takes on the role of the folk hero Momotaro.


      9. SANGOKUSHI II: TENKAKERU HIDEOTACHI (1986, 90 min., color, historical adventure/TV Special)

      Spin-off from popular TV series about Ikkyu-san, a young monk-in-training at a temple in Tokugawa-era Japan. In this special, the temple plays host to a bratty tomboy princess who has to learn how to act like a lady.


      13. KABUTO (1990/60 min., color, ninja fantasy adventure TV series) Vol. 1
      Based on a manga by Buichi Terasawa.
      I have the manga in English so I was able to read that first and then watch the unsub’d anime. It’s about super ninjas fighting a demon army that’s burst out from hell to overrun the Earth.



      14. *MASK OF GLASS Vol. 2 (1998, 49 min., color, drama/OAV)
      Dir.: Tsuneo Kobayashi.
      More melodrama at acting school. Young Maya gets the role of Beth in “Little Women” and actually gets sick so Beth’s death scene will be more realistic.

      Dir.: Toshio Takeuchi.
      A Japanese newscaster covers a dangerous story in Brazil involving a Japanese man searching for gold. Based on a manga by Kazuo Koike and Ryoichi Ikegami. I have the English-language manga so I was able to read it first and then watch the unsub’d anime.

      Re: The Fourth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2013 **List Thread**

      Hi. I've been searching the net trying to find if there's anywhere to watch or purchase "Sangokushi". I first saw this back in the late 1980's on a Japanese tv channel. I loved it so much I started recording the episodes to vhs. Those tapes are long gone and I really want to see that show again. One of my favorite scenes is when Cao Cao is under water, near death, and he sees himself fighting skeleton warriors under water. I was wondering if you had any info on if this is on dvd, or if you'd be willing to sell me a copy of what you have. I don't think this was released on dvd as I've checked so many sites. And its so much better than the version made in the early 90's. Thanks for any help you can offer. Chikarah
