Re: Twilight Time - May Titles Announced

From those titles, a Schultz quotation will suffice. "I see nothing."

Re: rate the last movie you saw

I think I decided to give it a chance because I can appreciate realistic type "process" investigation stuff as I have in many a TV series. I didn't read the book but I did when I was young read "Helter-Skelter" which can be said to have built on that style (even though it benefited from being writte...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

In Cold Blood (1967) (6 of 10) So I saw this for the first time courtesy of my Criterion discount. The location footage is great, the performances by Robert Blake (life later imitates art?) and Scott Wilson are compelling, but......in the end I have to ask what was the point, ultimately? I haven't ...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

When that time comes, Oldman takes full command and manages to outshine a few unbelievable sequences that come off as contrived, such as when Churchill rides the Underground and tears up after talking to the “common folk” about guiding England’s future against the Nazi threat. Scenes like that keep...

Re: Criterion 50% Off Flash Sale - 24 Hours

Already have 39 Steps and Lady Vanishes.

Since "Rebecca" got another issue on Blu-Ray is there any chance the old versions of "Notorious" and "Spellbound" will also make it to Blu-Ray?

Cat People (1942)
In Cold Blood (1967)

Re: Disney Announces ANOTHER Star Wars Trilogy from Game of Thrones Writers

Toy sales are never going to be that great as back then for the simple reason that back then, the toys were sold in the pre-home video era and were the only way for kids to re-experience the film after it was gone from theaters forever (and would be years away from being on TV). Today's kids can jus...

Re: GODZILLA Movie Thread

The Burr Americanized version may in fact now be a "lost" film because supposedly the elements have disappeared. Thus, the old VHS releases may be the only way to see it. The worst thing about it was how they insisted on having a goofy major in the control room always spout comedy dialogue ("boy the...

Re: Rate The Last TV Show Episode You Watched

And a reminder that you can see *every* episode of "What's My Line?" (including rare lost episodes that never aired on GSN) at the WML channel on YT. We've even had original commercials restored to a number of higher quality GSN episodes. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChPE75Fvvl1HmdAsO7Nzb8w Clas...

Re: Rate The Last TV Show Episode You Watched

Quite true a lot of shows require you to be topically savvy, and that's also true of "Match Game" with comedy questions that are lost on today's viewers, like when the question or a celeb answer centers on Euell Gibbons, a naturalist who did commercials for Grape Nuts cereal in those days (and we're...

Re: Rate The Last TV Show Episode You Watched

Been going through many episodes of the 1959-61 game show "Take A Good Look" hosted by Ernie Kovacs which was released a few months ago by Shout! I have to admit, I have never bought into the argument of Kovacs as one of the all-time great comedians. Like so many who die tragically at young ages (an...

Re: Jim Caviezel Confirms Return in Mel Gibson's PASSION Sequel

I hope for the best with this project. POTC is in my opinion one of the greatest films ever made and a follow-up with Cavaziel would be well worth seeing.

Re: GODZILLA Movie Thread

I have to admit, "Terror Of Mechogodzilla" is for me better than many of the other 70s Godzilla films, and one thing that helps is the return of Akira Ifukube on the music bringing back the original 1954 theme no less . This is also the first Godzilla film to have some really big city destruction sc...
