 Mars, Memph and I discussed "Once..." in a previous thread. We both loved it. Hollywood looked as exciting as it was in 1969. The characters are vivid and realistic. The ultra violence is saved for the ending...but, WHAT an ending! It's definitely the best film I've seen this year. Tarantino's best since "Jackie Brown". Btw, Margot Robbie is stunning. See it!

George C. Scott's performance in the film is remarkable. I felt so much sympathy for his character when he actually witnessed what his Daughter was doing on film and in Her life. Scott conveyed his pain and emotions, that left me speechless. I actually felt his dismay and distain.

 Yes, he was brilliant in that role. I think it's a very underrated film. Due to the seedines of the subject matter, it was not given the attention it deserved. Season Hubley was excellent, as well. Have you seen the HBO series, "The Deuce"? It's a great show about the rise of the porn industry. The whole thing takes place in early  70s New York. Great music, lots of nudity and fine performances by James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Method Man & many others.

Mike are you asking if I meant to watch the film? If so, then yes. I absolutely love the Tim Burton film. The film is weird, funny, dark, and has definite subtext pertaining to Pee-Wee's sexuality.

Pee-wee's Big Adventure is not for everyone. Nevertheless it is a classic cult film and is one of favorite comedy films.

 I'm leaning "Vertigo". "North by Northwest" will be the encore. It just hit me that Kanje West's son is named North West. I won't let that deter me. Btw, Mike, have you read "The Dark Side of Genius" by Donald Spoto? It's my favorite bio on any celeb. Lots of disturbing details on old Hitch. He would not have survived the whole #ME TOO movement.

No monsters. Sort of a sci-fi.

THE NAME OF THE GAME - LA 2017

I always wanted to see this early Spielberg TV episode/TV movie. Gene Barry plays his usual TNOTG character, this time transported into a ecologically doomed dystopian future. It's a reverse "Metropolis", with the elite living in comfort, underground, while the workers live on the polluted surface. A lot of environmental and totalitarian society talk before Barry escapes to the present. (Or, was it all a carbon monoxide induced dream?)

Not bad. I'm sure I would have liked it better in '71. Probably the only early Spielberg TV thing that I hadn't seen.

Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore, Edward G. Robinson and Claire Trevor.


I felt like watching this one out here on the west coast, since Dorian was such a disappointment to me on the east coast.  I so wanted to hear that it had sat on top of bedbug central, Mar a Lago for a couple days before moving back out to sea.

Just as well, I suppose.  All the illegal aliens employed there would have lost their jobs and been deported as "undesirables".

Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Sheldon Leonard, Walter Brennan and Hoagy Carmichael.

Bacall's first picture.  Man, she looked good!


Hard to watch a Bogart/Bacall movie without wanting to watch another.

 All-time classic with unbeatable screenplay. Gritty, dirty, violent...DeNiro's best performance. Great score by Bernard Herrmann.

Student Bodies, 1981 - Someone is murdering kids at one high school.

Starring no one.

Typical 30-year old high school student nonsense.  Supposed to be funny, but most definitely is NOT.


Only interesting thing to me was an actor named Patrick "The Stick" Varnell.  He was the living incarnation of Tarman.

Example:

Very interesting (as Artie Johnson would say). Speaking of the "Psycho" score....has anyone one noticed how similar the "Re-animator" one is? It's lawsuit-worthy. Check it out, if you can. Sorry, I don't know how to do links (Adam tried to teach me but...oh, well).

As protective as Universal is about their product licensing, you'd think this would at least register a blip or two. It's one of the most iconic film scores in movie history. The staccato strings from the shower scene serve as my ringtone (which accidentally  caused an uproar in my doctor's office).

 I hate to admit, I've never seen it. I have nothing against it, but horror comedy was never my thing. I do agree with you about those dreadful "Scary Movie" things. Who finds those remotely funny? "Scream" was tongue in cheek to begin with.

So cool that you guys like Mulholland Drive. That's one of my favorite films. I think it's profound. I realize it's not for everyone but I think it's outstanding. I'm not going to lie, that movie really shook me. I fell in love with Naomi Watts' character (the early version) and when I realized what the truth was (or at least what I think the truth was), I was blown away. I think about people in low places who dream (fantasize) about a better, yet unattainable reality. Talk about existential angst. Anyhow, I could go on about this flick . . . The soundtrack is excellent too.

I couldn't agree more. I remember seeing it in the theater when it first came out. There was an older couple sitting in front of us. When it ended the woman said, "That's it?" "I don't get what all the critics are raving about." In all fairness, there were a lot of confused faces walking out. The divisiveness is one of the things I loved about the whole experience. I'm still not sure about what everything meant, but that's the appeal of David Lynch. You should check out his daughter's film, "Surveillance". It's perfect for a criminologist. Trust me.

Saw Joker last night. I liked it a lot. Definitely a new, unique take on the character. The movie does its own thing with the Joker, and isn't trying to stay too close to anything that's come before really, so if you are a stickler for comic book continuity you might be turned off. It is violent, but not nearly as bad as some of the early reviews have made it seem.

Not long ago I watched the made-for-TV western Lonesome Dove, 1989.

In the last 3 days I watched Open Range, 2003 and made-for-TV Broken Trail, 2006.

I didn't set out to watch them in chronological order, it's just how it turned out.  You'd think all that horsey drama would have sated my hunger for westerns, but they did the opposite.  Good movies in any genre have the effect of stimulating a desire for more of the same.  I wish there were more quality westerns from recent years - particularly the sort that that take place over an extended period of time and over vast areas of the unspoiled America of the late 1800's.  It was an interesting period in our history.

All of these films have great casts.  But one major attraction that ties all three of these movies together for me is Robert Duval.  Damned fine actor, and one of those inexplicable people to whom your eyes naturally gravitate whenever they appear on the screen.  I know he is older and westerns must be grueling to make.  But, oh I hope he manages to give us one more western-themed movie like these. 

Not many actors could hold sway over such a project against the CGI-super-heroes-are-sure-money crowd that keep creativity clenched tightly in their money grubbing talons.

I know, I do tend to go on - sorry.


I think I will watch Dances With Wolves.

Neither of these are recent, but my two favorite westerns that fill that description are HOW THE WEST WAS WON (1964 theatrical) and CENTENNIAL (1978 TV mini). Love that whole epic sweep thing!

The Ruling Class, 1971 - A cold, sober documentary of English nobility, told through the life of Jack Arnold Alexander Tancred Gurney, the 14th Earl of Gurney.

As summed up by his father, Alexander, the thirteenth Earl of Gurney, "We were once the rulers of the greatest empire the world has ever known - ruled not by superior force or skill, but by sheer presence."

Peter O'Toole, Harry Andrews, Alistair Sim, William Mervyn, Coral Browne, Arthur Lowe, James Villiers and Michael Bryant


Wonderfully instructional for those seeking a better understanding of Britain's intricately layered society and deeply deserving privileged upper class.

A little dry, perhaps, but worth the slog.

I'm feeling the need to re-watch this.

What IS it about Holmes and Watson that lends them so readily to re-telling, adaption to other settings and parody?  (Not that their haven't been the occasional stinkers.)

 3. Jackie Brown
 4. Kill Bill 1
 5. Kill Bill 2
 6. Death Proof
 7. Inglorious Basterds
 8. Django Unchained

 All come with special features and extras in a nice boxed set. I paid $50 for mine because it came with collectible mini samurai sword and display stand. If you don't care about that, you can find them for as low as $35. The bluray transfers are excellent, too. I just had to buy The Hateful 8 ($3 used) and am waiting for the exceptional Once Upon a Time in Hollywood...and I have a complete set.

Bad Girls go to Hell(Doris Wishman) is an OOP dvd from Something Weird Video. You may be able to find a copy on eBAY, Mord.👹

Both films are WAY-OUT-THERE! In terms or weirdness and sanity. Over the top acting and nudity. Bad Girls from Hell is probably the best film, I feel, that the late Doris Wishman directed.

Here is a holiday movie that I like.  It doesn't have flying reindeer named Sparkle or any references to "Santy", but its a holiday movie all the same.


One Special Night, 1999  - Two people meet at their spouses’ nursing home on Thanksgiving.  Climatic conditions extend their encounter.  Their story continues through mixed signals and culminates on Christmas.

James Garner and Julie Andrews.


Non-Hallmark, made-for-TV movie.  Adult (grown-up) themes.  Stars a couple of wonderfully engaging actors in a just slightly expanded “two-man play”.

Heart-warming tale that is satisfying viewing on either holiday.

I'm just slipping this one in the player.  Another holiday movie that I like enough to recommend.


The Christmas Wish, 1998 - The family patriarch dies during the holidays and his widow is asked by their son what she wants for Christmas.  She wants just one thing;  Discover the identity of  the mystery woman her husband visited regularly (secretly) for many years and made cryptic notes about in his private journals.

Neil Patrick Harris and Debbie Reynolds.


Non-Hallmark, made-for-TV movie.  One of many with the “Christmas Wish” title - you want the one with Debbie Reynolds.

Well acted little holiday film that is just enough of a genuine whowuzzit to keep your interest.  A solid, full notch above the rest.

It's incredible that Scorcese can still pull off a masterpiece at this stage of his career. I'm inspired to watch Goodfellas and Casino next. I'll follow them with my all-time favorite, Taxi Driver.

It's a Wonderful Life, 1947 - A potential suicide is distracted by his guardian angel and given the chance to see what the world would have been like without him.

James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Thomas Mitchell and Gloria Grahame.


Such a good movie.  If you don't like this one, you must have identified with Old Man Trump Potter when he kept the Bailey Savings & Loan's $8,000 cash deposit and acted magnanimous by offering the people he robbed fifty-cents-on-the-dollar of their own money to buy their shares.

As much as I love this old Capra Corn, even as a kid, it never rang true that the angel was showing George what the world would have been like if he had never been born.  Suicides don't wipe out their previous lives - just whatever would have followed.

And as a kid, I thought from all the old movies I had seen on TV that the bad guy wasn't supposed to get away his crime.  (I've since learned that the world isn't so simple.)


I was so happy when the studio rescued this movie from public domain.  Watching this on TV, it was a crapshoot what you'd see.  The 210 min. film was offered in whatever edit the TV station who owned a scratchy 16mm print wanted.  Too often, it was edited down to fit in a standard 90 min. broadcast slot, including commercials.

Watched Star Wars Episode IX yesterday.  I went in with an open mind.  Episode VII was okay.  Episode VIII was absolutely horrible.  This new movies was...I have to say...pretty good.  Although the humor seemed forced, the story and character growth was good.  The movie also took plenty of shots at Rainn Johnson's Star Wars movie, which was awesome!  It was good to see the characters finally grow, and the old characters get some respect.

Suicides don't wipe out their previous lives - just whatever would have followed.

He didn't commit suicide, because he was never born.

And as a kid, I thought from all the old movies I had seen on TV that the bad guy wasn't supposed to get away his crime.

I love the "Green Beret" song parody.


Of course, the movie came out just before Bill Clinton was accused taking advantage of the poor little intern who admitted telling her friend that she was getting "presidential kneepads" and going to work in the Whitehouse. 

Later, a popular crime show (forget which one) made reference to a victim's dress-deposited DNA sample as a "Clinton Corsage".

Life is funnier (and more tragic) than any mere movie.

3 Godfathers, 1949 - Three desperadoes on the run promise a dying mother to take care of her newborn son.

John Wayne, Pedro Armendáriz, Harry Carey Jr., Ward Bond and Ben Johnson.

John Ford directed this old TV standard western filler film.  I had not seen it for so many years that I disremembered it as being B&W.  (Probably broadcast that way, when it was being shown so frequently.)  I was shocked when I saw a newer DVD and discovered it was not only in color, the film was beautifully filmed and the hues had survived the intervening years in spectacular condition.

I was even more surprised that I did not remember it is a Christmas film!  I guess the lack of snow, decorations and carols threw me. 


This is a pretty decent telling of this oft-remade tale.  I enjoyed seeing it again (almost for the first time) after so many years.


Fun, rediscovering an old friend.

"Filler"? It's a classic! The best of all the different versions, IMHO.

Harry Carey Sr. starred in the first film version (1916) and John Ford directed Carey in a 1919 version called "Marked Men".

The Joker (2019).  I though the movie was decent and portrayed the joker sort of like the comics.  It's the beginning of him losing his mind and becoming homicidal.  This definitely wasn't a comic book movie, but more of a psychological thriller with a comic character in it.  I also thought it was going to be more violent than it was.  There were a few, I think four, violent scenes that were pretty tame by today's standards.  I did, however, like the decent into madness story and how it set up batman being in a sequel.  In all I'm glad I watched it, but was somewhat disappointed that it didn't get into how diabolical the Joker actually is.  Maybe in the sequel.

Flight, 2012 - An airline pilot saves the majority of his passengers by performing a very unorthodox maneuver.  During the post-flight investigation, his alcohol/drug dependency is revealed.

Denzel Washington.

I had seen the one big special effects scene a number of times over the years but never really knew anything about the film.  Turns out the big action scene was not the final scene, like I had thought it would be - it came at the beginning of the movie.  Then it wasn't the courtroom drama I thought it would turn into.  It was really about the main characters' lives.

Gutsy film for Hollywood.  Surprised they got funding for this one.


A lot better than I expected.

D.O.A., 1949 - A man walks into the police station and announces he wants to report a murder.  When asked who was murdered and where, he says, "I was, last night in San Francisco."

Esmond O'Brien, Pamela Britton, Luther Adler, Beverly Garland and Neville Brand.

Classic noir about a fatally poisoned man looking for his murderer in his last few hours. Stretches credulity that the sickened man is able to outrun so many healthy people, and that so many great-looking women think Edmond O'Brien is all that attractive - even in 1949.  Neville brand is especially disturbing with his crazy eyes, Gary Busey teeth and Richard Widmark in Kiss of Death -inspired laugh.  (He is so young in this one that his skin is so smooth it shines!)

I used to see this film pop up on TV a lot when I was a kid.  The public domain movie can look pretty rough on some DVD's, but the Roan Group DVD I have looks the best I have seen.


Still fun after all these years.

D.O.A., 1988 - A man walks into the police station and announces he wants to report a murder.  When asked who was murdered, he says, "I was."  (Sound familiar?)

Dennis Quiad, Meg Ryan, Jane Kaczmarek, Daniel Stern and Charlotte Rampling.

This time the victim is an English literature professor of a Texas University and it takes place during a Christmas heatwave.


One of many "remakes" of this basic story.  The original may have been a 1931 German film, followed by D.O.A. (1949),  Color Me Dead (1969), D.O.A. (1988), Crank (2006), and Dead on Arrival (2013).  It was also dramatized on radio and stage, with a number of TV episodes using the plot.

The version here begins and ends in black & white with lovely lighting and over-dramatic acting.  Still, it ain't a bad movie on it's own merit and surprisingly dark and violent for a Disney Touchstone picture.

The Kino Lorber BLU-Ray gives us independent commentaries from both co-directors.  Haven't listened to them, yet.


I liked it when I first saw it in the theater and I think it holds up pretty well today.

Color Me Dead, 1969 - Fatally poisoned man uses his last hours seeking the identity of his poisoner.

Tom Tryon and Carolyn Jones.

Badly flawed Australian remake of D.O.A. that muddles the familiar story enough that fails to engage the viewer.  It makes the bold, and ultimately ill-conceived, choice of placing the police station scene at the end of the story!  When the movie concludes with the lead character answering the question "Who was murdered?" with what was once the chilling answer, "I was.", the audience is thinking, "Well..., yeah.  That's the story we just saw."  It has the effect of saving the shark's introductory music for the end of Jaws.

Didn't think much of this production.  I watched it on YouTube, while I was waiting for my recently acquired D.O.A. discs, reviewed above.  Plays a bit slow, but the music is so awful, it really doesn't matter.

Modular Stereos?!?!  ::)

Yeah.  When stereo was new, guys with serious systems bought them piece-by-piece.  Amplifiers, pre-amps, turntables, reel-to-reel tape decks, radio receivers, speakers (tweeters, mid-range and woofers) - it was a really big deal.  Quadraphonic sound complicated things even more.

Playboy had lots of articles about the latest (and most expensive) equipment in almost every issue.  They would have a two or three part article about selecting the perfect stylus.

A killer sound system was considered essential to every well-equipped bachelor pad.

I would read all this crap though I hardly had enough money to buy the magazine.

Midway, 2019 - Everyone knows this story.

Unnecessary retelling.  I was so bored I had trouble staying awake.  The film needed some dramatic changes in tempo and setting to break it up.  The CGI effects were so overwhelming that I felt like I was watching a cartoon.  Too many camera angles that would be impossible in real life - makes the whole thing look unreal to me.

Not a fan of war movies, anyway.  This one was loaned to me by my friend's husband.

At least I can tell him I watched it.  (I'm lousy at pretending to like something I don't - so I never try.)

The White Buffalo (1977)
Charles Bronson plays Wild Bill Hickok hunting a monstrous white buffalo. A little over-the-top with the cinematic Wild West slang, but still pretty good. John Carradine plays an undertaker in a brief part  ;D.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)
Psychotic scumbag droogs, ultraviolence, home invasions, a bit of the old in-out, sweet revenge, rotten politics, and a twisted ending. A Kubrick classic.

Honestly. I tried to watch Naked Gun and became bored. I had not seen the movie for almost twenty years. I can see why I hadn't. For the record. That murderer( O.J. Simpson) cannot act at all. I don't know why that hack,  Priscilla Presley was hired, either.  Another one who cannot act.

City Slickers, 1991 - Three lifelong friends, each with personal issues, go on a cattle drive just before they enter their 40's.

Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, Bruno Kirby and Jack Palance (who won an Oscar for Supporting Actor.)

A movie that really has it all.  Dramatic situations, character development, man against the elements adventure, fish out of water humor, death of an important character.

Rock solid casting, beautiful cinematography and a fittingly heroic score for the expansive western scenes.


I would like to have seen Crystal reigned in a little.  He is not always as cute as he thinks he is.  But it all works to make a pretty damned good movie.

Unforgettable, 1996 - Medical Examiner is tried for his wife's murder and found not guilty on a technicality.  Now he claims he wants to find the man who really killed her.

Ray Liotta, Linda Fiorentino, Peter Coyote, David Paymer, Christopher McDonald and Kim Cattrall.

Told through flashbacks triggered by sci-fi inspired medical experiments that transfer memory.  (But really a crime drama.)  Superior editing saves this one from being an unintelligible mess - like so many others who have tried to tackle similar stories.  Intriguing resolution.

Solid cast all around and beautiful cinematography. 


I liked this one quite a lot.

Enter the Ninja (1981)
Revenge of the Ninja (1983)
Ninja III: The Domination (1984)

I loved these films when I was a kid. They're awesomely bad. Ninja III is especially insane. Here's the plot: a telephone line repair woman, who moonlights as an aerobics instructor, ends up possessed by an evil ninja spirit. You can't make that kind of $h*# up   :D. The only person who can save her is a ninja/exorcist. In the meantime, she kills like a hundred cops. And when she's not killing cops, she's blasting her boombox and dancing solo in her studio apartment  :laugh:. Movie is basically a mashup of revenge of the ninja, the exorcist, and flash dance. Lol!

I have never been a sports fan.  I have this one major flaw.  No matter how hard they tried, no one could ever get me to care who won.  I just don't give a damn, and I've never been able to understand why anyone else would.

Oddly, I do like the idea of old-time baseball.  The pastural setting, small town company teams battling for some stupid trophy.  I even like the general history of the game.

To that end, I own some movies about baseball that offer fun character studies of some of the game's more interesting players.

If you do like the sport, can't go to a game and want to watch some baseball-themed entertainment, try these:  (in no particular order)

Major League, 1989
Natural, The, 1984
Bull Durham, 1988
Field of Dreams, A, 1989
For Love of the Game, 1999
Bingo Long's Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings, The, 1976
Rookie, The, 2002
Ken Burns' Baseball, 2009 - (Documentary) at least through the 1950's

I recently (last 10 days or so) watched three of the above.  That got me thinking about the "idealized" sport - you know, no strikes, no drug scandals and players that don't get several million dollars to sit out a season with injuries.

Did you enjoy the film [Once Upon a Time In Hollywood] ? 

Yeah.  It wasn't as violent as I thought it would be.  I was expecting something a little more Pulp Fictiony.  I didn't think the TV western depictions weren't that good.  (I lived through all the western craze of the 50's and 60's.)

The recreation of 1969 Hollywood was spot on.  Incredible detail.  (How great was it to see Bruce Dern as George Spawn?)

And, like I said, the climax was really out of left field.  I love being surprised by a movie.

Saving Private Ryan, 1998 - In the confusion and horror of World War II, a squad is sent into extreme jeopardy in an effort to prevent one of war's more unjust outcomes - minor in the grand scheme of things, but unbearably tragic, none the less.

Tom Hanks, Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Vin Dieselm Matt Damon and Harrison Young.


Seemed like a suitable movie for the holiday.  This one has grown on me over several viewings. 

No matter how many times I hear it, I can not fail to be moved by Harve Presnell as General George C. Marshall reading the Letter To Mrs. Bixby:

Perfect Woman, The, 1949 - Spendthrift gentleman’s rich aunt refuses to advance him any additional money before his next allotment.  He gets a temporary  job field-testing an attractively constructed robot - he thinks.

Patricia Roc, Stanley Holloway, Nigel Patrick, Miles Malleson and Pamela Devis.

Silly British comedy that never gets to the level of light sci-fi or sexy farce.  In fact, it plays like an extended episode of the old Gale Storm My Little Margie show.

Still glad I finally got to see this little rarity.

The Trouble With Harry, 1955 - Harry Worp is found dead on a hilltop outside Highwater, Vermont.  Several of the small town's inhabitants believe they are responsible for his death.

Edmund Gwenn, John Forsythe, Shirley MacLaine (screen debut), Mildred Natwick, Mildred Dunnock, Jerry Mathers and Royal Dano.

Silly bit of stagy comedy from Alfred Hitchcock that I first saw on TV in the 1960's.  I had forgotten all about it, when it was rereleased in 1983.  I saw it then in a small multiplex that also featured the newly released Shirley MacLaine tear-jerker "Terms of Endearment".  I watched them in chronological order and was amused by how MacLaine's cinematic acting had matured.

I watched it for something frothy and colorful.  The Vermont countryside is just gorgeous.

Goofy like "Arsenic and Old Lace", but without the darkness.

So the movie's well known and considered by many to be a classic. But I thought it simply sucked.

Your post prompted me to watch the movie myself. It's a fun flick, but the ending was way over the top unrealistic. The students should instead have found a way to induce the principal to break the law and suffer the humiliation of getting arrested and losing her job.

Well now,   I seem to have found a piece of gold,  in my favorite "vhs" form,  from my childhood,   at my local Goodwill shop,  not really a true movie,  but non the less,  a real classic, at least for me.   When I picked it out of the bin,  I just stood there and smiled.  I'm talking about the 2 short stories with marionettes that was aired as "The Spirit of Christmas", way back in the early sixties at Christmas time, it was usually hosted by the Bell Telephone Hour in my area here in Reading PA.  It was always a Christmas tradition to show this on tv,  usually on Christmas Eve.  This half-hour show always held a special place with me,  I always looked forward to watching it sitting on our living room floor with my other 2 brothers and my parents.  Actually, it's a bit tough for me to watch this now,  it just takes me back to a simpler time in life and it's kind of sad because hardly anyone is left in my family anymore to share and enjoy this piece.

For me, post-Halloween viewing tends to be stop-motion and/or fantasy films.  (Maybe because, as a kid, 7th VOYAGE OF SINBAD, KING KONG and MIGHTY JOE YOUNG often turned up around Turkey Day?)

As for the last non-monster movie I watched...last night, GUNGA DIN (1939, RKO).

When I was working with a group here in town on a retro film series one winter, we decided to do a double bill of CITIZEN KANE and PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, which we billed as "The Best & The Worst Films of All Time," jokingly letting the audience decide which was which.  (And yes, I know, those descriptions are not going to be accurate in many people's minds.)  The film series used a grand old theater, which had originally been a silent cinema and vaudeville house.  Curiously, halfway through the second film (PLAN 9), a bat started to dive-bomb our patrons!

Sounds interesting and fun. I really enjoy both Citizen Kane and Plan 9 From Outer Space. Plan 9 being labeled as the worst film. Well....that is subjective. By now, there plenty of high- budget Hollywood films that could be deemed as Worst films' ever.

Yes I did. I liked the fact that William Holden who had a realistic attitude toward war and the prison camp and who was widely resented due to his trading success turned out to be the hero. Although given his previous statements, for him to be the one who volunteered to help the lieutenant escape at the end made no sense.

Saving Private Ryan, 1998 - Rescuing the last of 4 brothers so their mother needn't lose all her sons to war.

Realistic battle scenes and touching depictions of sacrifice and hardship.


Not a big fan of war movies, but I love this one.  Everyone looks like they belong.  Great ensemble cast. 

Especially impressed by the amazing Harve Presnell.  He was such a fine entertainer, whether singing "They Call the Wind Mariah" in "Paint Your Wagon", playing the stubborn father-in-law in "Fargo" or as General George C. Marshall, reading Lincoln's Civil War letter to Mrs. Bixby.


If you are unmoved by Lincoln's words or the quiet request,  "Tell me I've led a good life.  Tell me I'm a good man", we didn't see the same movie.

Boy, those Monogram Chans were tough to get through! As you'd expect, the quality was quite a bit lower that the FOX films. Watching them (almost) back to back didn't help much, either.

Love that film.  It's kinda monstery.  It does have ghosts.

Alistair Sim inhabits that role.  He wears it like a tailored suit.

A Christmas Carol (1951)

Hands down the best adaption and the best cast, headed by the man who was born to play Scrooge! And Dickens is always better in black and white!

BANANAS (1971) - I remember laughing a ton back in the '70s at this one, but I don't think it holds up now.  Outside of a couple scenes and one liners, I barely laughed at all.  I rewatched LOVE AND DEATH (1975) a few years back and still found that extremely funny.  Maybe hearing too much about Allen's personal life (who knows what's true anymore?) hasn't helped either.

In this case the plot twists typical of Alfred Hitchcock's movies are just too predictable. We predicted both well before they transpired. In fact, I thought the ultimate culprit was so obvious that it would have to turn out to be someone else. I was wrong though.

I was 12 when George Reeves died - a little too old to still be an active fan, but still young enough to remember him being an important figure in my life.

WOMAN IN THE SHADOWS (1934) with Fay Wray

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962) - Hadn't seen this completely since my parents took me to it first run in 1962.  At 7, it was a bit over my head, but some imagery and that beautiful score by Maurice Jarre remained in the back of my mind.  It deserves all the praise it gets. Possibly the best cinematography I've ever seen and Peter O'Toole was superb.

I had all of his best movies in those two 5 disc sets (10 films), but I wanted to see those other features, too, so when I saw this 5 disc set of all 18 movies for $20 (or was it $30?), I bought it. Still have TILLIE AND GUS, SIX OF A KIND and MRS. WIGGS to watch. (I have a separate CD of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.)

I have a soft spot for Godfather III. It's not as bad as most critics say. Is it as good GF or GF II? Of course not. Not even close. But it's a better than average gangster film that doesn't deserve the scorn it gets from critics. Just my view. In terms of "Coda," it's basically 90% the same thing as GFIII. Coppola rearranged some pivotal scenes, shaved off a few minutes, and added some minor details not in the original. Still, I think Coda is an improvement over the original version.

My Dog Skip, 2000 - Adult recollections of a boy's life in 1940's Mississippi.

Frankie Muniz, Kevin Bacon, Diane lane, Luke Wilson and Moose.


Bitter sweet, heart-tugging story of an only child during WWII.


Movie is very reminiscent of Scout's narrative in To Kill a Mockingbird.  Even the opening credits and music are similar.  Some good graveyard scenes lend a little danger to the tale.  Frankie Muniz and the dog were perfect for their parts.


I like this movie a lot.

Unraveled: Long Island Serial Killer (2021)

Outstanding documentary. Fascinating case study involving massive police corruption, sex work, an affluent community with something to hide, and a serial killer on the loose.

When it comes to true crime, I'm not really a serial killer guy, but I'm interested in the iconic cold cases like Jack the Ripper, Zodiac, and now the LISK.

Guns of Navarone (1961)
The Eagle Has Landed (1976)

Great casts in these movies. The "Eagle" cast in particular, we see strong horror and sci-fi representation: Michael Caine, Donald Pleasence, Jenny Agutter, Judy Geeson, Treat Williams, Donald Sutherland, Larry Hagman, and Robert Duvall

Never Take Candy From a Stranger, 1960 - Privileged small town personality is successfully defended against handing out candy to minors outside the confines of Halloween, with tragic consequences.

This is part of the Hammer 20 BLU-Ray set that I bought for $19.99 a short while back.  It was unusual for its time and pretty hard hitting even for today.

Gotta remember the setting here.  This thing came out just one year after "Anatomy of a Murder", in which there is a controversy in court over saying the word "panties" in court.  (I remember seeing it in the theatre at that time.)


Ballsy movie and not at all what I expected from this set.

Mr. 880, 1950 - A counterfeiter leads Federal agents on a frustrating ten-year pursuit.

Edmund Gwenn, Burt Lancaster, Dorothy McGuire and Millard Mitchell. 

Based on the true story of Emerich Juettner, who was arrested in 1948.  His exploits were written in up New Yorker magazine and subsequently made into this movie.


Edmund Gwenn charmed much of the public as Santa Claus in 1947's “Miracle on 34th Street” and went on after this film to star in the sci-fi classic “Them!” in 1954 and Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry” in 1955, playing essentially the same sweet, somewhat-bumbling character in each.


If you like his schtick, you will like this one.  I do, and did.

This implies that Cary Grant was a superior officer in the patrolman's own force which would be local since the patrolman was on road duty.

Yet Cary Grant is then sent overseas to Brazil to gather information on the activities of a cabal of Nazi officers. This implies that he was working for the Strategic Services Unit which soon became the CIA. A Strategic Services Unit officer would keep his identity a secret and certainly wouldn't be flashing his ID to a police officer. And of course the local police officer wouldn't be impressed/intimidated by an officer of an agency with no authority in his jurisdiction anyway and would bust Bergman's ass all the harder.

2. Cary Grant then shows up at a grand cocktail party hosted by the Nazi officers. But Claude Rains had already seen him in the company of Ingrid Bergman! Talk about being suspiciously close to Bergman! Worse yet Grant arrives stag which looks all the more suspicious. Surely the SSU would have had its own complement of "hostesses" in Brazil one of whom would have accompanied some other male agent to crash the Nazi party.

Carelessness galore on the part of the SSU continues throughout. Grant and Bergman are very indiscreet in their meetings, Grant's tradecraft is clumsy, terrible all over.

Why do you assume that the ID CG showed the cop was a real ID? It only had to be one that would impress a cop enough to let them go.

It was revealed that CG and IB knew each other. Nothing suspicious about that.

What's suspicious about going to a party stag?

And Rains is rightly suspicious of them.  Nobody's perfect!

There's nothing wrong with going to a party stag, but Grant being accompanied by a hot number would not have fanned the flames of Rains' suspicions/concerns about the relationship between Grant and Bergman. Going stag was sloppy tradecraft by the SSU. Surely the SSU would have had access to dozens of women in Rio who could have played the part, whether employees or simply high class call girls upon whom the SSU would call occasionally.

In fact if the SSU wanted Grant to be the point investigator inside Rains' mansion, Bergman should previously have been accompanied by a different SSU officer at the riding stables.

Critically lauded by the artsy film crowd because it makes some sort of statement about the advertising industry and consumer culture in America as well as the cultural divide between whites and blacks. Well the only statement in which I'm interested when it comes to movies is "This flick will captivate you!" Well Putney Swope certainly doesn't make that statement. In fact it was so disjointed and just plain lousy that the only reason I endured it to the end was so I could say I gave it a fair chance before dismissing it as a complete waste of time.

THE KILLING (1956) - Awesome film noir from Stanley Kubrick.  This film started coming on TV when I was a kid.  I only saw the very beginning, but remember the racetrack intro and intense music (Gerald Fried).  I thought it was called THE KILLERS and forgot about it for decades.  I recently watched it out of curiosity on Amazon Prime after seeing it was an early Kubrick film and had a great cast.  To my surprise, this was the movie I'd been remembering all those years and finally got to see the whole thing.  Very entertaining and I really liked the unusual style, cast and look.

River's Edge(1986)
....and by the way, Dan Roebuck's performance in River's Edge is superb and dark.

Tim Hunter’s brutal and unforgettable drama River’s Edge is one of the most unflinching looks at dysfunctional teen life ever put on screen, and serves as a grim reminder of how powerful true-crime based cinema can be when properly handled. Inspired by a real murder that took place in 1981 in California, Neal Jimenez’s hard-hitting script never soft pedaled any of the scary, emotionless nihilism that permeated a group of kids who were all tangled up in thoughtless killing, with an amazing cast of then-young actors doing sensational work, including Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye, Roxanne Zal, Josh Richman, and Crispin Glover, with Dennis Hopper providing his usual brand of sinister character acting from the fringes of this chilling film. With evocative cinematography by Frederick Elmes and a haunting score from Jürgen Knieper, this is one of those absolutely harrowing efforts that once you’ve seen you’ll never forget, and despite shining a light on some very unsympathetic characters (Larry Clark must love this film!) who are all caught in a deadly scenario, Hunter’s steely direction keeps the film from ever becoming cloying or sentimental, as he stressed the inherent cruelty and sadness of the story without over doing it.

River's Edge(1986)

I second your "highly recommended" opinion of the film!

Just as an aside on Danny, I caught a bit of a Matlock episode with him playing a "resident" doctor at some hospital. That makes him a member of that "club" of actors who played a character on a series episode before becoming a regular on the show. (Just one of those quirky bits of trivia that I find interesting.)

High Noon, 1952 - A town marshal must face four killers alone.


One of the all-time great movies.  Stars a brilliant cast of principal characters and supporting actors.  A suspenseful story that takes place in almost real time.

Lon Chaney's performance, brief as it is,  may just be the best thing he ever did.  You believe every word he says.  So sad that he was not given more serious straight roles like this one.

The Maltese Falcon, 1941

Love this movie.  Hadn't seen it in years, but I still know almost all the dialogue by heart - even the variations that were done for the shorter radio versions.

I don't know why this film made such an impression on me when I first saw it on TV.  I just know it's the all-time standard to which I compare all the 30's-40's detective movies.  ("Pretty good, but no Falcon.")

Have you ever seen either of the 2 earlier versions? I've seen the 1931 version, with Ricardo Cortez. (Dwight Frye plays "Wilmer".) It's not bad, but not the classic that Huston's remake is. Never seen the 1936 "disguised" version ("Satan Met A Lady").

Also, be forewarned, this is the first of two movies, so the film does end in the middle of the story (though at a fairly good stopping point).

Meatballs had a hyper-active little blonde that I thought was really cute.  Kristine DeBell had been the star of 1976's X-rated "Alice In Wonderland".

She's in another fun and cool film called, Cheerleaders' wild weekend.

Candace Cameron Bure stars in this Hallmark Christmas movie.  Gives a little different twist on discovering an appreciation for the holidays.

Not too awful.  (It IS a Hallmark movie and it is Candace Cameron Bure.) The time travel gimmick is a little different for one of these.

Cinema Paradiso, 1988 - Successful movie director tells the story of his childhood and learning to love movies and the effect they can have on people.

One of the most nostalgic and sweet films ever made.  It would have been magic to live the little boy's life.

I was lucky enough to make friends with a projectionist at a crumbling "art house" theater as an adult.  I did not have a TV at the time and used the old theater as my major form of entertainment.  I was there three nights a week - often re-watching old or foreign films that I had already seen.  The college student projectionist would invite me in to watch the movie through the tiny projectionist's booth windows with him and we would discuss the movie being shown or his latest film school project - while he changed reels, rewound film, threaded the complicated machines, swapped out rods for the carbon arc lamps in the rickety old projectors and spliced worn films.

I miss those days.  This movie reminds me of them.

Shawshank Redemption, The - 1994
Life - 1999

I think the Eddie Murphy/Martin Lawrence film, Life, is sadly underrated.  The story is engaging; the cast and acting are superior; and the photography simply stunning.  Rick Baker's makeup ain't half bad, either.

"The Stranger" Orson Welles, Edward G. Robinson, and Loretta Young. I had never heard of this film, and Orson Welles was great as the Nazi being tracked to an American town by a government agent, played by Robinson. Great performances by all three, including Loretta Young who marries Welles Character, not knowing who he really is.

POMS (2019) - I loved this sweet, little film. Diane Keaton at 73 is still so cute and funny. Plus, we get other wonderful, veteran actresses like Pam Grier and Rhea Perlman. Really enjoyable movie, funny and touching.

ALL THE KING'S MEN (1949) - Outstanding film. No wonder it received so many awards.  I've been watching a lot of the old HIGHWAY PATROL series and enjoying Broderick Crawford.  I thought I better check out his oscar winning role and movie and it remains timely in its message.  Great acting all around.

A GENIUS TWO PARTNERS AND A DUPE (1975) - I watched this for my my favorite actor, Patrick Mcgoohan. It's a spaghetti-western comedy and surely one of his oddest choices to co-star in. And yet, he's still fun to watch in it. Strange film though, lol.

Thanks, Mike. I will. I know Judy Holliday was considered a fine, comedic actress. I'm trying to catch up on watching older movies I've never seen. I was always so captivated by monsters and horror that I missed a lot of other fine films.  At this point in my life, I have a wealth of classics to seek out.

Thanksgiving Day:

1. Quo Vadis 1951 (Blu-Ray). I was surprised when I first purchased this to see is presented in 1.33.1 aspect ratio or window boxed. Still, a beautiful restoration.

2. The Robe 1953. Great film and a beautiful score by Alfred Newman. Major inaccuracies, as the Romans never persecuted Christians under the reign of Caligula. The first persecution of Christians took place in Rome, not in Palestine under the reign of Nero, which was after the reign of Caligula and Claudius.

3. Demetrius and the Gladiators 1954. In this sequel to The Robe, there's more inaccuracies, but still a great cast and a wonderful Franz Waxman score.
