  1. That's a hilarious post! Thank you for sharing!
  2. When I was about 16 I got John Williams' autograph!
  3. I finally watched this movie in its entirety on Netflix. I had seen parts of it over the years on TV, but never the entire thing. I loved it. It had a perfect balance of comedy and thriller. What are your thoughts on Silver Streak?
  4. Is it bad that the only one I will rewatch again and again is Raiders of the Lost Ark? I have seen all the rest once, and it was enough for me. I just feel it had everything and the sequels could never top it.
  5. I found a "great" movie today on Amazon Prime for fans of cheesy movies. It is a Spaghetti Western complete with cowboys, Indians, horses, and shootouts mixed with a horror/fantasy element of evil people living in a volcano! Check it out!
  6. It is quite long. But I thought that they did quite a good job despite all the production problems.
  7. I love everything David Lean did, but I am totally exhausted at the end of Lawrence of Arabia.
  8. Days of Heaven! Oh my gosh. That's 2-3 hours of my life I can never get back. I had read so much about the cinematography that I just had to see it and oh my goodness was I disappointed
  9. I can see why you would say that. Without the breathtaking score, I'm not sure if I could watch the film.
  10. I agree. After hearing so much about it, I just had to see it and at the end I felt like "that was it??"
  11. I completely agree and since I never read the books, I kept getting character and place names confused so I had no idea who was going where
  12. What I wonder too is how much the casting of Welles and Cotten together was an attempt to recreate what chemistry they had in Citizen Kane?
  13. A lot of great titles here. One I enjoy that I have not seen listed is Blake Edwards' 10 (1979). A lot of people only remember it for Bo Derek running in slow motion on the beach, but overall the movie has a lot of depth. Just look at the 3 minute scene of Dudley Moore playing a Henry Mancini piano piece in one long take... gets me every time...
  14. You are right. The only thing we know about the friendship between Lime and Cotten's character is what Cotten tells us. But perhaps, the point is that everything that Cotten's character believed about Lime is only from his perspective and not reality.
  15. I have seen the 1956, 1970s, and 2006 versions. I enjoyed the first two. The final one, I watched less than a year ago and cannot remember it at all.
  16. I will not argue that 2010: The Year We Make Contact is better, but I did enjoy it more than the original. It was more straightforward and didn't have a 10 minute long wormhole sequence I would say the closest thing to a sequel to 2001, style-wise, would be Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Anyone else think of that connection?
  17. I just saw the original 1984 Dune. I had the same reaction to it as I did for Lord of the Rings. I thought it was well made, but since I never read the books, I had no clue what was going on.
  18. I never considered it, but I like the idea!
  19. Isn't it ironic that what is considered one of the greatest horror movies of the silent era was made without permission from Bram Stoker's estate?
  20. I agree with you about Welles. It seems as if the picture got better once he entered.
  21. Tonight I had the opportunity to watch The Third Man (1949) in its entirety. Before, I had only seen from the first reveal of Orson Welles to the end and loved it. This time, watching the entire thing, I did not enjoy it as much. The ending (especially the cinematography) was brilliant, but I felt the rest of it was quite slow. What do you think?
  22. Great question! Perhaps education and information about film and filmmaking needs to address the process and conventions of film from multiple perspectives. For example, one of the rules of drama is for the performer to never look at the camera and break the fourth wall. However, in comedy this is not only permissible but often highly effective. What do you think?
  23. MST3K actually has a Youtube Channel where they post old episodes every once in a while. I should say an "official" channel in contrast to all the bootleg videos on youtube.
  24. I love how you put "best" worst, because the best of the worst are still really enjoyable. I always dread finding one that sounds like it would be enjoyably bad and then realizing it's just all around bad with not enjoyment factor
  25. I actually wrote my thesis on this topic: http://digitalcommons.library.umaine.edu/honors/93/ It has to do with a lot of factors, mostly a lack of understanding of the conventions of comic film and a lack of a common language to discuss comedy.
