Awkweird Me
The African Queen (1951)
This is a kinda fun adventure/romance movie, but not a whole lot more. The plot of a man and a woman who initially dislike each other, but after going through perilous events, fall in love is a pretty familiar one. But I suppose it wasn’t as cliche 60 years ago. The actual story is a little repetitive and unrealistic too. The film is really saved by Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn - they’re both very likable and wonderful together.

Bringing Up Baby (1938)
This is a fun screwball comedy, and it is pretty funny for what it is. However, what it is is insufferable. Okay, that’s harsh. But man, this was tough for me to watch. It was just so frustrating! Things just kept going wrong! Most of all, there were just misunderstandings after misunderstandings on top of misunderstandings and I almost couldn’t take it! I’m being dramatic, but it really was kind of like that. It’s a nice movie though. Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn are brilliant and funny and great together. As long as you can handle the frustration, I recommend it.

Adam’s Rib (1949)
P365 Film #272
This was a decent film about a husband and wife who are both lawyers and get assigned to opposite sides of a case involving a woman trying to kill her adulterous husband. It soon becomes a man versus woman and gender equality thing though. I enjoyed the chemistry between Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967) and again in this film. Anyway, it was an alright film. I enjoyed parts of it and didn’t much care for others. Overall, it was watchable but nothing spectacular.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967)
P365 Film #251
This film is about a young Caucasian woman bringing home her African-American fiance to meet her parents and the conflicts that arrive from their interracial pairing. It was a little more light-hearted than I expected and hoped for, but it sure wasn’t the pseudo-remake Guess Who (2005) (although, thankfully, I’ve never seen that). It didn’t go deep enough into the issues as I’d have liked, but it had some good things to say about not only race and love but parenting too. There were brilliant performances by Spencer Tracey, Katharine Hepburn and especially Sidney Poitier. So, it wasn’t entirely what I’d hoped for, but it was nice and well-made.
