  1. I won't bother with a list as many of my favorites have been listed already but about ME TV: They keep advertizing Thriller with Boris Karolff one of my all time favorites but it never seems to be on. Anyone caught it?
  2. Love him or hate him you can't say the guy was just famous because he caught on early in movie history. His stuff plays well even today though it can be a bit sappy at times. I watched Modern Times with my son years ago. He was in his early teens at the time and we both busted out laughing quite a few times. My personal favorites are The Great Dictator ( though the phony German speech sequence runs too long) and Missour Verdoux which is weird as hell but entertaining. In Verdoux reading the credits is revealing: story by Charles Chaplin, produced by Charles Chaplin. On & on. Talented for sure.
  3. "Judgement". Why? because I think that as a lawyer in Germany at that time I'd never have taken that case. I think Schell's character knew he was fighting for a lost cause and Max conveyed that feeling perfectly. I'm here. I don't want to be but I'll give my all.
  4. Get the living crap beat out of you and turn up for work or whatever the next day. Get caught by the Mummy who moves at 3 miles an hour. Never miss with a tossed pie. Not touch Marlyn Monroe in the Seven Year Itch. Oh God the list goes on and on !
  5. Which version has the last survivor, a woman, realise she can just strong arm and out moneuver the ghouls and just walks through the mob and away ending the movie?
  6. I must be getting used to the guy because I laughed at a few of his jokes. The funny thing about the movie came to me after Sven mentioned that the final fire scene was lifted from Ghost of Frankenstein and was used as the end scene of House of D. with Chaney Jr. in Monster make-up. If you're quick enough you'll see in the scene where the now mad Doctor imagines the Monster rampaging through the town that some of that footage was lifted from the original frankenstein film and it's definitely Karloff as the Monster. Glen Strange is the Monster in House of D so with the exception of one actor, Bela Lugosi, you have all the actors that portrayed Frankenstein during Universal's "Golden Monster Age" in the same movie all playing the Monster! I don't know why Universal skunked Bela for this film as Drac. I think he'd have come cheaper than Carradine. They seemed to scalp him pretty badly salary-wise.
  7. By the way I've seen The Train many times. I don't know how true it is but it's a hell of a good movie.
  8. Read the book Monuments Men a few years ago. I'm assuming the movie is about a single "treasure hunt" mission. That's not what these guys did back then. Their real job was to protect/preserve treasures from battle damage not hunting down missing stuff. I haven't seen it but if my single mission theory is correct it's pure Hollywood.There is at least one guy still living whose **** off about not getting any $ but again, if it's pure hollywood I guess he doesn't deserve any.
  9. Don't think I'd name my new food "product" Soylent. No matter what it was made of. Bound to turn people off.
  10. I agree the guy's not bad. These monster movie host gigs were always done on the cheap anyway and I guess you work with what you've got. Zacherlie use to walk into the film through cuts in the screen. They actually ran a movie on a screen and put the TV camera on it in those days. It was pretty funny back then but again, you used what was available. And cheap. MeTV advertises Boris Karloff's Thriller on Sunday at 10 PM but the listings don't show it. Any one catch it? My totally favorite SciFi/monster show ever.

    "Kronos"

    What a surprise to find Gog was in color! That gives you an idea of how long ago I saw it on TV. We had a black & white set.
  12. I saw it on MeTV too. Must have seen it before because bits were familiar. I laugh about the thousands of tire tracks that must have been in those deserts just from movie makers alone! These movies usually turned up on Zacherlie's midnight movie show and his shenanagans usually made them watchable. At least you hung around to see what he'd do next no matter how bad the flick was.

    "Kronos"

    Wow. Toally forgotten until I saw this thread. Like Xploit I watched it many times as a kid then it disappeared. Not a bad story line and if you can put up with the 50's special effects not a bad watch either. Anyone remember another lost SiFi called "Gog"? A real stinker as I recall.
  14. Roverrocks: Add Steve Carell to your list and it fits me perfectly.
  15. The film draws a lot of "quiet" attention around St. Patty's day. Years back I bought a copy on VHS and was told by the store owner that he ordered about 20 copies every year around that time and sold out every one year after year. The tape contained some extras on the end and I was surprised at some of the items mentioned like the bearded old man being John Fords brother and Wayne's kids sitting on the wagon in the race scene. Too much to recount here but it sounded like the whole cast & crew & their families went on vacation to Ireland and happened to make a movie.
