  1. I know over 40yrs since I fell for the MOVIES as a kid people call PATTON both
  2. The late Mr. 0sborne's A #1 favorite actor was William (Sefton) Holden-(l9l8-l98l)
  3. & yet Randy did Ragtime, The Natural, Avalon & lots more
  4. As it stands right now & looking ahead my still early-(until 7 days prior) predictions only in the top 6 major races are> 1917, J. Phoenix, Renee Zellweger, Brad Pit, Laura Dern & Sam Mendes
  5. excellent work again If anything defeats it this time it will likely be The Joker
  6. It just goes to show you how uptight the Academy can be & still is This score won one of it's 6 Oscars, but the first was deemed ineligible due to being used in a 1950's Italian film?' & yet AFI in 06 voted THE GODFATHER as the 4th all-time greatest score
  7. THANX FOR KEEPING THIS PRETTY MUCH NEVER ENDING TOPIC GOING!!! Have another suggestion, the ending of THE DEER HUNTER
  8. Got to go & see it on the big screen a few months ago
  9. although the first 2 are my favorite films ever, this 3rd in the trilogy was good (***) at best & the audience even laughed at this finale Duvall knew better then to stay out
  10. I remember Gene & even Roger saying that like it was last week They were furious
  11. The 1950's was truly special & to me THE HONEYMOONERS-CLASSIC 39) (1955-56) (CBS) & THE LOST EPISODES OF THE HONEYMOONERS (l952-57) (CBS) Though tv movies/mini-series starting in the '70's are tremendous ala LONESOME DOVE,etc
  12. By far Tinsel-Town has covered THE WAR (WW11) the most of course I already cited my ranking just in my overall opinion of top ten war-cinema, below are my picks on WW2 *Schindler's List Saving Pvt. Ryan *From Here to Eternity The Great Escape & The Longest Day & a ton more
  13. To Sepiatone, that's exactly the point I tried to make with *GWTW Schindler & The Great Escape itself doesn't contain many battle scenes either Even Birth of a Nation had epic battle scenes in 1915 A HINT (11) HAVE WON TO DATE thanx
  14. Like with last yrs Roma never in 91yrs has a film taken both Best Film & Best Foreign Film
