My first Groovy Giveaway of 2013 is two copies of Rob Christopher's new book, Queue Tips: Discovering Your Next Great Movie (click here to read all about the author).
This fun suggestion guide incorporates classic films with more obscure selections for a full-array of watch-worthy movies to add to your queue. A few of my favorite lists in the book are:
- Psycho, and Other Surprising Christmastime Movies (which also include Rosemary's Baby, The Thin Man and Bad Santa)
- That Magic Moment: Homoerotic Display in Heteronormative Cinema (featuring the 1965 Lana Turner film, Love Has Many Faces, 1955's Picnic starring William Holden and Kim Novak, and 1961's Back Street with Susan Hayward)
- Great Movies Based on Plays (featuring one of my favorite dark comedies, 1971's Little Murders, starring Elliott Gould and Marcia Rodd)
- Movies on My Mind (written by guest contributor, actress Julia Sweeney, who selects 1966's The Trouble with Angels starring Rosalind Russell and Hayley Mills and 1955's It's Always Fair Weather with Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse and Dolores Gray)
- Ten Movies So Bad They're Good (including Earthquake, Showgirls and another favorite of mine, Valley of the Dolls)
