    The First Film That Comes to Mind...

    How you play: I'll put down a random word and the next poster posts the first movie that comes to mind that deals with that word. Then, that same poster posts another random word and so on. For example: First poster: Apple Next poster: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Ear And so on... Okay, the first word is: Butter

    Why is TCM Showing Modern Movies???

    For some reason, TCM has begun to show several modern movies, such as Men in Black (1997). I'm sorry, but 1997 movies are NOT "classic". NOTE TO TCM: Please do not show modern movies. You are called Turner CLASSIC Movies for a reason! Message was edited by: Metropolisforever

    Is Netflix Any Good?

    Hello, everyone. I MIGHT get Netflix, because Blockbuster doesn't have any good movies. Netflix's allocation policy?referred to by many as "throttling"?gives priority shipping and selection to customers who rent fewer discs per month. Higher volume renters may see some of their shipments delayed, sent across country, or sent out of order. Netflix currently claims that "the large majority of our subscribers are able to receive their movies in about one business day following our shipment of the requested movie from their local distribution center." However, not all shipments come from the subscriber's local distribution center. Shipments from distant centers are often delayed, as well. This has resulted in a lawsuit, which is ongoing. Is Netflix any good?

    Films that You DIDN'T UNDERSTAND...

    Have you ever been confused by a film? Post about it here, and other users will explain it to you. ^ _ ^
  7. This is a discussion thread for totally obscure movies. Some of these movies deserve more attention. Some of these movies are best left forgotten. There is a whole world of film that, just a few short years ago, was considered lost or worthless. The industry that produced and distributed these films had long since vanished and there was no sign of the men who actually created these bottom of the barrel celluloid wonders. That is until now.

    Name that Movie - Pictures

    I'll start out by posting a picture from a movie, then you'll have to guess what movie it's from, and if you're right, you post a picture. And if you know exactly what movie it is, post a picture in the post you make with the correct answer. The first picture: What movie is this from? Answer correctly, and YOU can post the next picture! ^ _ ^

    Name that Movie - Pictures

    New Picture:
  18. This has got to be the most overrated movie ever. It was not "powerful". It was not "brutal". It was not "epic". It was boring and pretentious. The protagonist of this film, Jake LaMotta, is a pathetic, paranoid psychopath who suspects that his wife, Vicki, brother, Joey, and everybody else is conspiring against him. Eventually, he ruins his life, going from middleweight champion of the world to a two-bit night club stand-up act. And that's the end. Wow, this is such a "powerful" movie. I cannot believe that this movie is considered to be one of the greatest films of all time. It was incredibly tedious, boring, and relentless. And what's with the boxing scenes? Spit and blood are flying all over the place in slow motion and nothing looks the least bit real. Speaking of real, LaMotta supposedly marries Vicki when she's fifteen. Moriarty didn't look fifteen to me, unless it was dog years.

    Raging Bull (1980) - The Most Overrated Movie EVER

    "As LaMotta, Robert De Niro gives a blank, soulless performance; there's so little of depth or urgency coming from him that he's impossible to despise, or forgive, in any but the most superficial way." - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader Message was edited by: Metropolisforever

    Who Said That?

    This game is very simple. I will give you a quote from a famous person, or a movie, and you have to name the actor who said it, and, if applicable, the movie it's from. If you answer correctly, you get to ask the next question! ^ _ ^ For example: Who said: "I'm a performing addict: I can't get enough!" The answer would be: Robin Williams. Understand? So... without further ado... Who said: "Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents." Message was edited by: Metropolisforever Message was edited by: Metropolisforever

    "Seven Footprints To Satan" taken off of TCM's May schedule...

    This is a shame. Seven Footprints to Satan is an extremely rare, 77-minute horror film about a young man of society, who wants to make an expedition to Africa, but his fianc?e asks him for help about one of her father's guests, shortly before his planned departure. Her suspects about that guest were serious, this man tries to steal one of her fathers rubies, and she and her fianc?e are kidnapped and brought to a house, where strange things happen. The whole thing becomes a nightmare under the direction of a mysterious Mr. Satan. The film has talking sequences, a musical score, and sound effects. It sounds like a lot of fun. Maybe it was "too graphic" for TCM. Or... maybe they couldn't get a print. I don't know. I really wanted to see this...
