I can confirm, as I said above, this reaction for two thirds of his movies.

In any case, for the majority of his movies.

And then, all of a sudden, there's a WA film that you can fall in love with.

Radio Days, for instance.

Now Radio Days was a real favorite of mine and thoroughly loved watching it. I don't know why I didn't snap to it was a WA film right away. Must have been a time when I wasn't paying much attention. Maybe I came into it late.

Anyway, I can tell you unequivocally that had I known it was a WA movie, I would not have given it the time of day, so I must be correct in that I came into it late.

I have always felt WA movies were just so overly pretentious, that I just couldn't get invested in them. So many people were so gaga over his works, that I just never discussed it with anybody. I kept thinking, "what am I missing here??".

I know exactly what you mean.

And I'm glad you share my enthusiasm for RD.

Absolutely.

Her best movie ever (so far) was and remains The Owl and the Pussycat. (Followed by The Way We Were.)
Absolutely, Ing! Like Minds, again!  ;D ;D ;D..............I thought she should have had an Oscar Nom for The Owl and the Pussycat, but I doubted that would happen! Some people LOVED her in What's Up, Doc? Not me, The Owl and the Pussycat was her best work in Comedy, IMHO!  ;)

I need to look at the catalog of Woody Allen's films, perhaps I have actually seen one and forgot. I doubt it though, just never cared for his work, or him! Sorry!  :o

I'm glad we feel the same way. I think also I was never a big fan of his using the same leading ladies a lot. I have never been a fan of Diane Keaton.

I've never seen a WA movie because of ... WA. If I want to see a pretentious, neurotic, nebbishy kind of guy, I'll just look in the mirror.

I looked at the list and found the only Woody Allen movie I have seen is 'Midnight in Paris' which I loved and have the DVD but more because of my love of Paris and its past. I had no idea who directed it but then I never bother much with such information.

As I have not been to Paris since September 2018 and do not know when or if I can go again, I should watch the movie but may end up in tears.

Again, same thoughts.

Never understood what people/filmmakers saw in her. Silly, really.
