The 7 Samurai.

Ran is a near perfect movie. I first saw that in a theatre in Philly with a date and at the end it was so fucking tragic I actually started laughing. She was almost crying. I don't think we went out again.

Watching Rio Bravo. Angie Dickinson was such a hot dish. Dem gams.

Rio Bravo is one of my top ten favourite movies. That opening scene is a masterwork of cinema.

 

Can't find it on the youtube, but here it is on AMC's site:

Ran was depressing...

Oh yes, my laughter was due to immaturity and how epically tragic the ending is.

I mean, everybody dies, sure. That's expected. But the blind man standing on a cliff ledge as the final shot was just fantastic.

I've seen the tv 4 episode (once) and the 3 hour movie a couple of times; both in cinema and on tv. The movie is better than the episodes, and last night I recognized not one boring scene, just good direction, interesting characters and a touching and dramatical story.

After getting reminded of it here, I was glad to find the 4 episode version being on tv yesterday (for 5 hours straight, just interrupted by credits), giving me a chance to see it again with my family 33 years after we did so the last time. (AFAIK this cut is identical to the 5 hour movie cut; I've never seen the 3 hour version.) Luckily I didn't really recall any scenes beyond the first act. Great writing, great characters, great drama.

I just finished Moby Dick while vacationing in Sardinia this summer, but I didn't really have any plans to see In the Heart of the Sea and less so now, I guess.

So none of the older adaptations are worth watching either? Like the '56 Gregory Peck one or the '98 Patrick Stewart tv version (that also had Gregory Peck)?

I re-watched Jaws earlier this year and I was supremely satisfied at how well it held up (5/5).

The '50s Moby Dick wasn't bad. The '90s one was. Still no movie has done that novel justice.

AMC has westerns on all day. Young Guns 1 and 2. Of which 2 is actually the better film. Then Tombstone on later. I did prefer the William Costner as Wyat Earp version, but Tombstone has its pleasures, chief among them Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn. Much prefer Dennis Quaid as Doc Holiday to Val Kilmer. Yeah, I wrote it.
post #13060 of 14418
The only one of those I own and rewatch on occasion, is Tombstone.
post #13061 of 14418
Ah, Young Guns are worth it. And the Wyatt Earp movie is actually quite good.
post #13062 of 14418
I've seen all of them (and have pretty fond memories of the first Young Guns), but could probably do with rewatching them all. Would like to check out Silverado again too. Speaking of westerns, my favourite one is Once Upon a Time in the West - one of the few movies I could watch pretty much any time and whose opening scene is my go-to for checking new audio/video setups...
post #13063 of 14418
I didn't mean to imply these were the best westerns ever made, just that they were on now and I had fond memories of them. And of course the opening to Once Upon a Time in the West rocks the fat ass.


EDIT - I mean you put it between Touch of Evil and OUaTitW openings they're pretty much the greatest ever.
post #13064 of 14418
Oh, I didn't mean to imply that you implied that...

And yes, that scene truly is spectacular.
post #13065 of 14418
Shit, now you've got me looking up classic western showdowns. I think I've done this before but no one else is here so here it goes.

I fucking love the soundtrack here. Absolutely amazing.The Man With the Harmonnica.

EDIT oh what the fuck, is it two ms or two ns in Harmonica?

DOUBLE EDIT - Oh fuck balls, it's neither. 1 m, one n.
