A-Z Challenge: M

Hello M Day! Almost to the halfway mark and so far so good! I hope you are all enjoying the choices I've put up. I've been trying to pick movies I love, but aren't overly well know (minus just a handful). I want to have a nice variety that can be found over on Netflix, so if anyone wants to check one (or more) out it can be gotten a hold of:)
With that, here are  a few more :)

The Mesmerist

Based on a Poe story, The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar, it centers on a doctor trying to swindle a family whose father is dying. It's dark comedy. A very dark comedy. I find Neil Patrick Harris can do very little wrong and that makes this that much more fun:)
Neil Patrick Harris, Howard Hesseman, Jessica Capshaw, George Wyner

Dr. Hoffler: It's not ethical to keep them in the dark!
Dr. Pretory: I'm a doctor! What care I for ethics?
Dr. Hoffler: But I'm a doctor too.
Dr. Pretory: Some doctor. I wouldn't trust you to water my ficus!
Dr. Hoffler: I'm an ethical doctor, and I am going to tell them.
Dr. Pretory: Well, now I see why most mad scientists have mute assistants!


Another actor who I find can do no wrong for me :) Albert Brooks just makes me smile. This is him at some of his best. Walking down the beach shouting "Why me?", the grocery store. Just funny.
After a second divorce, a science fiction writer decides to work on his relationship with his mother in order to fix his trouble with woman.
Albert Brooks, Debbie Reynolds, Rob Morrow

Beatrice Henderson: I love you.
John Henderson: I know you think you do, Mother.

My Neighbor Totoro

I do like my animes. There is one more coming up later. I just saw this last summer and adore it. This one is so sweet. It just makes me relaxed and happy. The umbrella scene. Awwww...
Two young girls find a magical forest after they move to a new house in the country. Inside they find and friend the Totoro.
(Disney version) Tim Daly, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning

Tatsuo Kusakabe: Trees and people used to be good friends. I saw that tree and decided to buy the house. Hope Mom likes it too. Okay, let's pay our respects then get home for lunch.
