    All Foreign Film Network

    I've got an idea: What if there was a cable network devoted entirely to foreign (made outside the US) movies? Perhaps TCM would be involved in setting it up. The films would be shown complete, unedited, without commercials, and subtitled. Perhaps films there were never imported to the US would be shown for the first time, too.

    Sophia Loren Film

    A few months ago, TCM showed a new short film starring Sophia Loren. It was about a woman whose lover is breaking up with her via a phone call. It was directed by her own son! I believe it was called THE CONVERSATION. Do any of you know if this movie is on DVD? I would really like to purchase it. Thanks in advance.

    Favorite Film Era

    What's your favorite film era? In other words, what period do you most enjoy watching films that were made during? Mine is the 1960's. The old Hayes Office was gone, and filmmakers were being more daring and experimental in their movies.

    "The World's Greatest Sinner"

    It is a brilliant film, and in some ways beyond its time. How much involvement to Frank Zappa have with it?

    A Page of Madness (Teinosuke Kinugasa 1926)

    I've got this film on video. A very strange, very surreal movie, a real favorite! My copy has an avant garde soundtrack recorded in the late 60's that goes perfectly with it.

    TCM's Archives

    How extensive is TCM's archives? And are there certain films they don't have access to?

    THX 1138

    I agree. It's one of my favorite sci fi films.

    One thing I'll say in defense of modern movies: They didn't have the Hayes Office hanging over them.

    Two Best Cult Titles Say I!

    WILD BOYS ON THE ROAD. A depression-era film about a group of teenaged boys (and one girl) who become hobos.

    Modern Silents

    Have any of you seen silent films of more recent years? SILENT MOVIE by Mel Brooks is the most obvious example. And it's a great celebration of the silent slapstick genre. Personally, I think it would have been better if it was in black and white. Then there's David Lynch's masterpiece ERASERHEAD. It does have dialog, but only a little bit. Kubrick's BARRY LYNDON is mostly silent. I've never seen it, yet. The surreal Canadian filmmaker Guy Madden has made a few silent movies.

    All Foreign Film Network

    Well, thanks for the info. It does sound pretty complicated!

    All Shorts Day

    A few years ago, TCM devoted an entire day to short films, both new and classic. Do any of you know if they'll be doing that again, anytime soon? I really enjoyed that.

    Yvette Vickers Found Dead

    Wow, what a sad ending! RIP

    Anybody out there know & love "The Phantom of the Paradise"

    I'm surprised this movie doesn't have the cult status ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has! After all, they're both from the same period.

    "Kitten with a Whip" (1964)

    This film is shockingly undated. I can see it happening to a politician today!
  17. dougiezerts


    I consider it one of the best horror films ever made. I even have the soundtrack album. And it's a real "sound" track album!

    Why you watch silent films

    Silent movies have an innocence to them not present in later films. Also, like someone else said, then are a window to our past. And the fact that many of them are now lost makes the ones still available that much more precious. Besides, the girls in these films are very pretty!
  19. I recently heard a rumour that whenever there's a close-up of an actor's body part, it is often the actor's body double, and not the actor him/herself. Any validity behind this?

    Polanski seeking to have U.S. charges dropped

    Michael Jackson, R Kelly, Roman Polanski. Why is it that celebrities can get away with any crime they want to--even child molestation?

    Suspiria (1977)

    I'll have my VCR ready for it! (Yes, I still use a VCR!)

    German language films

    One of my favorites in KAMAKAZE 89 from 1979. It's a sci-fi/mystery film. Germany has reunified. Drugs are legal, booze is outlawed. And the directer Fassbinders stars (but doesn't direct!) as an alcoholic police captain investigating a bomb threat against a huge corporation's headquarters building. In many ways, it's shockingly revelent to what our society is like today. I think it's one of the best sci-fi films ever made.

    Martini Movies.....What do U think!??

    Shaken, not stirred, please!

    Favorite Moviemaking Era

    What's your favorite period of moviemaking history? Mine is probably the 60's. Most of the old censorship laws were being abandonned, and filmmakers were more willing to experiment. (I suppose that drugs had something to do with it!)

    MTV Remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    Why is Hollywood doing all these remakes? Are they running out of new idea, or do they think that newer is better?
