  1. Would love to, although Monterey is almost a 6 hour drive from where I currently live. I hope you can start one though, that sounds like it could be a lot of fun!
  2. ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE 3.5/5 I thought this a fairly decent film from Scorsese; this is one of his few films that seems to focus on a character of the more feminine persuasion. I enjoyed this, although I wanted to give it a higher rating than I did but it just didn't quite reach that point for me. I will say that I thought Ellen Burstyn's performance was quite solid, as were those of Kris Kristofferson and Diane Ladd (fun fact, a 7 or 8 year old Laura Dern can be seen sitting at the diner counter in one of the scenes towards the end of the film). PLANET OF THE APES
  3. Hateful Eight is one of my favorite movies of the 21st Century!!
  4. I agree! I love watching noir/horror at night. When I watched The Haunting (1963) I did so on a gloomy day and I found myself really immersed in the film.
  5. yeah my brain is interesting alright lol... I think I do a lot better when I just decide to watch something without much prior knowledge of it or when I haven't seen anything my friends have written about it.
  6. Don't judge me, I needed a catchy title; I am really getting more into Westerns, and I wanted to ask you guys if there were any you've seen that you could recommend. A few of note that I have seen and enjoyed are Rio Bravo, The Big Country, True Grit (both), Once Upon a Time in the West, High Noon, and Stagecoach. Let me know if there are any you think I should try
  7. *Monte Hellman (unintentional) Double Feature* The Shooting and Ride in the Whirlwind (both 1966) I had a yen for some short Westerns last night after work, and I stumbled on these two on the Criterion Channel. Both featured a 28/29 year old Jack Nicholson. He was alright in these, nothing to write home about. I think these were both fairly obscure releases at the time, but overall I had a pretty decent time watching them. The plots of both were incredibly simple and straight-forward (which is sometimes a blessing in disguise), and the acting was decent. Diary of Anne Frank (1959) star
  8. Sometimes I over-hype a movie in my mind and for fear of being disappointed, put off viewing it for weeks... until I finally crack like a walnut and sit down to watch it. One of the most recent examples was with Citizen Kane... and I decidedly did not have a good time. So I guess sometimes my phobia is rational.
  9. *Just a few off the top of my head: Alien (1979) Aliens (1986) Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade The Goonies (1985) Jaws (1975) The Princess Bride (1987) Jurassic Park (1993)
  10. I had to shut the movie off; I was so disinterested 😕
  11. M. Night Shyamalan's "Old." Save yourselves before it's too late, if anyone asks you to go see this in theaters, better check they are paying first before you're out $15.00.
  12. I have heard countless people discuss this online; I feel like the circumstances surrounding her death are slightly suspicious and strange, but to go so far as to say she was murdered by the Kennedy's or someone else of the like.... feels like a stretch to me.
  13. one of my favorite reviews on the Letterboxd site: "One of the weirdest things I've ever seen. It's barely a movie. It's like Robert Altman made 3 Women and kept looking at Shelley Duvall and saying to himself "God, DAMN that woman looks like Olive Oyl" and then he couldn't get it out of his head and it gave him bad dreams and he was begging his brain, "PLEASE, stop, I don't want to make a Popeye movie!" but his brain just kept showing Shelley Duvall going "Ohhhhhh!" in a high pitched voice and finally Robert Altmans therapist told him to just make the damn thing and he did it to make th
  14. Noises Off (1992) for a 16th time.
  15. In addition to Stanwyck, I'd like to add Joan Crawford; she played a lot of strong characters throughout her career.
  16. I was reading online that Janice Rule was initially supposed to be in "On the Waterfront" with Brando, but didn't due to not wanting to split her time between the stage play she was currently in and filming of the movie.
  17. I would also say Stanwyck in a lot of her films, tbh. Particularly in "Baby Face" and "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers," even though her characters were not so angelic, they certainly were of strong will.
  18. 3 Women (1977); dir. Robert Altman (4/5 stars) *starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Janice Rule. Words are practically escaping me at the moment; I enjoyed all the performances in this and am glad to have liked yet another Altman film. I really like Janice Rule also; I think she was definitely an underrated actress (I recently saw her in "The Chase" with Brando, and Bell Book and Candle 1958). ^^Here is a still of Rule in the Twilight Zone episode entitled "Nightmare as a Child." ^^
  19. Joan Crawford as, and in, "Mildred Pierce" (1945) Bette Davis in "All About Eve" (1950) Elizabeth Taylor in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1966)
  20. oh wow! Another person who loves "They Shoot Horses, Don't They" and "Up the Down Staircase!" I haven't encountered anyone on here who loves both of those; how rad. I found myself quite impressed with Sandy Dennis in "Staircase," and have been meaning to check out more of her work. I will share some of my favorites as well (in no particular order) Welcome to the message boards! 12 ANGRY MEN (1957) I find this to be a masterclass in acting as well as writing and directing; the performances are all believably stellar and it does a great job of being engaging despite the one-setting
  21. Lynch co-wrote this with someone else; full of anecdotes of his childhood and his road to making movies; I've only read a bit, but it is quite engaging thus far.
  22. I am a serial polygamist when it comes to books, so a few that I am currently reading: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter- Carson McCullers Play as it Lays- Joan Didion Room to Dream- David Lynch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest- Ken Kesey
  23. has it really been almost 6 years since i posted this, boy, how times change. As of right now, it's 1. Cate Blanchett 2. Julianne Moore 3. Allison Janney
  24. A lot of my young film club friends are really into 1958's Vertigo for some reason; I like to show people "Strangers on a Train," myself.
  25. is this the one with Gene Hackman? If so, it is already high up on my priority list.
