Does anyone know when A Night at the Movies: George Lucas & the World of Fantasy Cinema will air again or if it will be available in any way on demand?

 

If you have Comcast, it is currently an On Demand choice.

I watched it today.

Geez that sounds a lot like the beginning of WHEN HARRY MET SALLY.


 


I've forever tried finding Reiner's much scoffed NORTH just to see it. Obviously it's not on DVD. Most of what Reiner touches turns to gold.

I saw 'The sure Thing' once, back in the 80's. I remember just one scene - to do with shot-gunning a can of beer. I know I enjoyed it - it had its charm - but little else about it.

 

Gonna record it tonight and give it another look.

I remember my mother rented the video of this movie when I was child.

There were a few moments that intrigued me, but I recall not really understanding what was going on.

My mother eventually made me leave the  room so she could watch in peace. (Of course, this made think there were some sex scenes in the movie.) 

I'm interested to see what reaction I will have to this movie seeing it as an adult.

late tonight @2am ET: This week on TCM Underground:

AN AMERICAN HIPPIE IN ISRAEL (1972)

Article: http://moviemorlocks.com/2014/12/24/this-week-on-tcm-underground-an-american-hippie-in-israel-1972/#more-80479

 

"The allegorical extravaganza known as An American Hippie in Israel has been called a “cinematic oddity” with a “creepy sincerity.”[6][8] Gil Shefler of The Forward described the film as "perfectly awful," offering that it "[p]robably [is] the worst Israeli movie ever made, and a serious candidate for the worst movie of all time, which, surprisingly, is enjoying an unexpected revival 38 years after it was made."

2 PREMIERES air late Sun., 12-28 for TCM Imports:

 

2:45 am ET
81 min
comedy
Story of a Cheat, The (1936)     PREMIERE

Learning at an early age that dishonesty pays, a man devotes his life to petty crime.

DirSacha Guitry CastSacha Guitry ,

The New York Times described it as "witty, impudent, morally subversive" and commented, "Only a man of Guitry's impudence could have succeeded in making 'The Story of a Cheat' the clever picture that it is"

4:15 am ET
118 min
comedy
Pearls of the Crown, The (1937)      PREMIERE

Seven pearls shape the destinies of all who possess them.

DirSacha Guitry CastArletty , Marcel Dalio , Sacha Guitry .

ARTICLE: http://www.tcm.com/t...e/articles.html

 "(writer/director) Guitry infused his famous wit in this film into a semi-historical template filled with lighthearted, inventive touches. In fact, Guitry himself assumes four roles ....for the chronicle of seven pearls, three of which have mysteriously disappeared after the others wind up on the crown of England. The origin of the gems as gifts to a young Catherine de Medici by Pope Clement VII turns into a springboard for four hundred years and hundreds of characters' worth of twists and turns including other familiar figures like Henry VIII and Mary, Queen of Scots."

tonight 12-31 for Classic Rock Films:

 

11:30 pm ET
C- 92 min
documentary

A harrowing documentary of the Stones' 1969 tour, with much of the focus on the tragic concert at Altamont.

DirDavid Maysles CastMick Jagger , Keith Richard , Mick Taylor .

author Michael Lydon summed it up especially well: "As one who was there, I most want Gimme Shelter's new viewers to know how deeply the disturbing drama of this film sprang from the disturbing drama of the times. Nostalgic journalism has made the sixties an innocent time of love, peace, and flowers, but living through the decade didn't feel like that to me. Becoming a hippie was fun but at the same time a scary, soul-wrenching process. Altamont was one of many dark and dangerous bummers I, and seemingly everyone else, stumbled into as we reached for new ideals and possibilities."
