Has a cleverly restored scene that was missing audio, so the 31 years older Tony Curtis was brought back to speak his lines, and Anthony Hopkins dubbed Laurence Olivier. Everything is suitably epic, but compared to another recently rewatched movie of a similar age and scope - Lawrence of Arabia - I find that I like the latter a good deal more.

More behind the scenes photos here.

For some strange reason, I thought of this movie on the way to work today. And then here it is.

Pierce and Olga were watchable enough, but the movie was dumb and ugly.

99 Houses on Netflix. Was not expecting much. Surprised. Excellent. Worth your time. If its anything near accurate, ugh. Fannie Mae, foreclosures, etc.

I'd highly recommend any of Charlie Kaufman's movies. Dude is my favorite creative force in Hollywood bar none.

From the dvd shelf, over the weekend:

A boyhood favourite.




The Hunt for Red October is my preferred Jack Ryan movie, but this one is still efficiently entertaining.

Spectacular footage aside, have always found this to be an average pic in many respects.



Had actually never seen this. Amazing direction. Melodrama dates it, but good to watch, some great performances.

Lucas ripped off the Dam Busters for Star Wars. It's so fucking blatant it's laughable. He still won't admit it.

I always thought it was more of a Western ripoff.



The Directors Cut while sitting at home while waiting for a tradie to arrive. First time in years still a fantastic dystopian vision of the future. Great cast, great script and great director. Sci Fi at its visual pre CGI best.

he did, but he never denied it it was more of a homeage, even on official site there's anckonledgement of that

if he wanted to deny that i think he'd change the dailogue more than that;


Dialogue from "The Dam Busters":
Gibson: "How many guns do you think there are, Trevor?"
Trevor-Roper: "I'd say there are about ten guns - some in the field, and some in the tower."

Dialogue from "Star Wars: A New Hope":
Gold Leader: "How many guns do you think Gold Five?"
Gold Five: "I'd say 20 guns. Some on the surface, some on the tower."


articule from offical website- http://www.starwars.com/news/the-cinema-behind-star-wars-the-dam-busters
"For modern audiences and Star Wars fans, The Dam Busters is definitely worth watching. If you want to watch it with the kids, I’d recommend getting your hands on the American version if you can. The canine mascot of one of the pilots has an offensively racist name in the British version, but they dubbed over it in the American version, changing the dog’s name to “Trigger.”"

Yes, was interesting watching the undubbed Dam Busters with my son.

'Ummm, what did he just call the dog?'

We saw Free State of Jones tonight. It was pretty thought-provoking.
