He cries far too much.
We watched the Shining again with a different subtext to examine this time. The child abuse of Danny angle is interesting. It provides some answers to obscurities in the plot.
Yeah, I watched it last weekend and enjoyed it. Both characters were really good. I just would have wanted one more scene at the end where they have both and the dog all together
White Lightning (1973). Burt Reynolds with his shirt off. Southern. Burt had to "fight like hell" to get Ned Beatty in the flick. Movie could have used more Ned. Not bad, but I'm in no hurry to see Gator.
Is Gator any better? Or just more of the same?
The Return Of Josey Wales (1986)
A low budget, almost totally unknown sequel to The Outlaw Josey Wales. It was apparently filmed and released straight to VHS and has never been released on modern media. I have an original VHS copy I found a few years ago at Salvation Army that I never watched and nearly forgot about until I saw it on Youtube. It's watchable, but not very good at all. No Clint Eastwood. BLAND story, characters, acting and writing. Some half hearted attempts at comedy that failed miserably. Hard to follow at times due to the poor writing, HORRENDOUS sound quality, and poor night time filming. I've seen movies from the early 30s that had as good or better SQ, and low budget movies from the 50s that looked WAY better. I just tried my VHS copy and it is a little better quality than what's on Youtube. Maybe I'll rewatch it again someday and see if I get anything more out of it.
I liked your first draft better beat truck.
My curiosity got the best of me.
(Queen Latifah, Oliver Platt, Bryan Greenberg)
The story of legendary blues performer Bessie Smith, who rose to fame during the 1920s and '30s. - IMDb
Not too bad.
I haven't watched a movie in almost 3 weeks.
Having said that, I think I may re-watch Slapshot tonight.
Last night, a local indie theatre put on a small tribute to Buster Keaton. There was a 15 minute lecture about Keaton and then they showed "Playhouse", "Cops", and "Sherlock, Jr". Playhouse was inventive, Cops was my least favorite of the three, and Sherlock, Jr remains my favorite.
Hunt for Red October. Didn't mean to watch it again but it always gets my attention.
Dead Poets Society (1989)
(Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke)
English teacher John Keating inspires his students to look at poetry with a different perspective of authentic knowledge and feelings. - IMDb
I saw this one a looong time ago and managed to catch it again a few days ago.
Enjoyed it more the second time around.
This movie was great
"Hot Dam, Rye Dirt, Ya'll Better Get Your Ass Against The Bar"
The Mountain Between Us
Never got into it.
I participated in a Po marathon with my four-year-old son this afternoon/evening. We watched Kung Fu Panda 1, 2, and 3. It's an excellent franchise featuring story lines that can grab and hold the attention of children and adults alike.
I am not much of a movie watcher.
But week before last I bought a copy of "Fight Club" at GW for $0.50.
That ending...I did not see that coming.
The Outsiders (1983). Francis Ford Coppola directed this (and Rumblefish). Based on the S.E. Hinton novel that was written when she was in high school. So there's lots of melodrama and some corny narrative tricks like the school fire that makes the fugitive boys heroes. Plenty of overacting and narrative gaps. Bit it is a fun watch of you grew up with those actors (Swayze, Dillon, Cruise, Macchio, Lowe, Esteves, and a cute Diane Lane).
Train To Busan (2016)
Basically a South Korean version of World War Z, except on a less grand scale. It was surprisingly good. It actually had characters I gave a damn about, decent acting, and OK effects. I liked it BETTER than WWZ, which I guess isn't necessarily saying a lot. It was recommended on another forum, otherwise I would have never known about it, or I would have overlooked it, figuring it was total crap. The only things I didn't like were the subtitles, and the zombies were the modern, fast, dinosaur shrieking, milky contact wearing type. I like the slow, Romero style zombies better.
Enter The Dragon, Longtime favorite
