  1. Saturday afternoon / evening fun: THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS (1962)
  2. I'll leave the ones I agree with And I would heartily recommend TCM show these Science-Fiction films: INVADERS FROM MARS (1953) ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS (1964) THE THING (1982) ALTERED STATES (1980) CRACK IN THE WORLD (1965) THE TIME MACHINE (1960) BRAINSTORM (1983) VIDEODROME (1983) THE LAWNMOWER MAN (1992)
  3. imo, the Officers that sent their men to go up against machine gun placements with rifles are the real war criminals of WWI. What a waste of treasure! Such was the mindset of European military leaders.
  4. I have a question: When Eve Kendall sends Roger Thornhill by bus to supposedly meet Kaplan, is Eve aware that she is sending Thornhill to a trap to kill him? What is it exactly that Eve thinks she is doing, what was she expecting to happen to Thornhill???
  5. Last night, I was fortunate to watch the 1950 b&w film THREE CAME HOME, with a wonderful performance by Claudette Colbert, and beautifully directed by Jean Negulesco. Cinematography was by William H. Daniels and by Milton R. Krasner. I had never seen this before, or, if I had, I was much too young to appreciate it. I think it's a Classic Film.

But, as much as I enjoyed it, I see that the film did not get even one Academy Award Nomination. Instead, the mature adult world was all gaga with ALL ABOUT EVE. Since I do not worship at the Bette Davis alter, I found that film less than wonderful.
  7. Robin was there for his dear friend Christopher Reeve in his time of need. Too bad that there was no dear friend that came along side Robin in his time of deepest need. But we have to ask, would any of us answer the call of a friend in need. I would like to think that I would, but then, each and every call, is a test in itself, to pass, or to fail. I remember well Robin's role as Reverend Frank, in 2007's "License To Wed"
  8. I remember seeing this film in it's release and it was one of the first Hollywood films that I felt I had been 'taken' on. Pure pabulum for those that just wanted to see "stars" on a screen. They got their money's worth.
  9. Ian Anderson with Jethro Tull performing "Kissing Willie"
  10. Favorite movie quote to end any conversation: From Leon: The Professional DEA Agent Norman Stansfield: "I haven't got time for this Mickey Mouse bull$hit"
  11. Goodbye distant cousin from Oklahoma (on my Father's side -- He lasted until 86 too.) Although I never got meet you in person, I have warm thoughts toward you, Jim Garner. Few could handle Stardom as gracefully as you have.
  12. The Horror is, that the idea of birds, which are so very numerous, would decide to come together to attack mankind, well, it's more horrifying than some dogs attacking. The loss of life from birds attacks would be in the tens of millions. Dogs attacking, many could be shot. Not enough bullets for the birds though.
  13. So, when the movie became available for rental, I began watching it for the first time at night, and alone in the home. I got so spooked by the film, that I did not watch the final third of it, until the next day. I liked the Alan Silvestri soundtrack. That first watching was the scaredest I ever remember being watching a film, as an adult.
  14. I feel that they would be succumb to being gluttons for the CGI effects of "millions" of ants, and the mass appeal that that eye candy would have, over the subtle detail of a few ants. They do not make them like this anymore! BTY, it's not so easy to find this thread on THEM! because the Search engine does not pull up results for "THEM!". So I searched "Whitmore" instead...
  15. Any "Birds" remake should consider using the alternate ending that Hitchcock had planned:

  17. Harrison Ford's broken leg

  18. My favorite film score is from Eric Serra, and his masterful work with Luc Besson's Leon:The Professional.
  19. Mathilda returns with Leon's milk after her family has been decimated
  20. I have Windows 8.1 with IE 11. What I did to get the YT video to post was to flip the light switch in the upper left of the message post to use standard BB Code. The result was that the copied url address from the address bar was there, but without any html markup. The buggy thing, at least for me, was the html markup. So, using the standard BB code option ( if that's what to call it) was the easy answer for me. But, using your solution, also works. The Green thing next to the font, the "Special BB Code" button, with the Media option, works nicely. It automatically installs the Media t
