Made in Manhattan: George Cukor
120 Years ago, George Cukor was born July 7, 1899, in Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City. The only son of Hungarian-Jewish immigrants, he embraced the ways of the new world his parents came to and shunned the traditions of his family's past. As a child, Cukor appeared in several amateur plays and at the age of seven he performed in a recital with David O. Selznick, who in later years became a mentor and friend. Infatuated with the theater, he often cut classes at DeWitt Clinton High School to attend afternoon matinees. Little did he know was, that it would be the path to the entertainment industry in California, where George would ultimately achieve success. Before that would happen however, Broadway was in his immediate future. He did well there and in late 1928 when Hollywood began to recruit New York theater talent for sound films, he would ultimately sign a contract with Paramount Pictures. He moved to California and worked as a dialogue coach along with other miscellaneous tasks for the studio. After moving up the ranks and doing some directing work, Cukor eventually would end up in a legal dispute with Paramount Executives over an accreditation on a movie and left with a settlement in hand and a new position at RKO Pictures. That's where he started to shine. From this list of approximately half of his directorial credits, which one is your favorite? After voting, please discuss here.
Worst American Remake of a Non-English Movie
Making an American remake of a great foreign language film into an English spoken version usually is a good idea. After all, sharing a great story with as wide an audience as possible makes a lot of sense. However, despite having bigger stars, larger budgets and the full resources of Hollywood behind them, it is often not enough. These adaptations, more often than not, pale in comparison to the masterwork and magic of the original telling. Which of these American remakes* is by comparison the most unworthy of the foreign non-English language original? * IMDb rated 6.9- (as of June 2019) Take the companion poll: Best American Remake Non-English Movie Discuss the topic here.

I Didn't Mean To Shed a Tear
Combining comedy and drama is nothing new but sometimes you find yourself surprised when a film you thought would be funny, in most part, became much more sad than you thought. Sometimes it's the humorous poster, the actors you're not used to seeing in dramatic scenes (like Adam Sandler and Dom DeLuise), the innocent plot that didn't reveal what would happen next - all of these factors make you surprised that the film became much more serious and sad than you thought. Some of these films introduce painful social phenomena (like discrimination in employment on the basis of age, immigration, divorce), some talk about human emotions such as loneliness, pain, and lack of self confidence. In a few movies there is an unexpected death. So which comedy that looked hilarious on paper is actually quite depressing? From this list, pick the most unexpectedly depressing comedy film. Regardless of your opinion about the film. All of this doesn't mean that some of the films on the list are not funny; they are just sad and even depressing in parts. Discuss Here
Movies Told in Real Time
Everyone loves a broken narrative but sometimes it's those movies told in real time that really hold our attention. For these films, events are portrayed at the same rate at which the characters experience them and thus make us feel like we're right in there with them! This means shorter runtimes that are perfect to squeeze in for that late night watch. Which of these films told in real time did you enjoy the most? (Please note: While not 100% of the movie may be shot in real time (barring perhaps an intro or ending), the majority is.) After voting, you may discuss the poll here.
