What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 942

post #14116 of 14435


Delightfully weird, though with a rather slow second half. Funny how it seems that over 20 years passes, yet the film remains firmly in the 70's. Soundtrack is trippy, nearly all compositions are frame-worthy and Bowie is appropriately alien.

'What do you do? For a living, I mean?'

'Oh, I'm just visiting.'

Love Capricorn One. Remember watching it as a kid as well.

Meanwhile....




One of those ones that you watch without too much judgement because, you know, evil Nazis.

^ That poster makes it look a good deal more action-packed than I remember it - maybe it's time to dig out the dvd and give it a watch.

And speaking of, what do you guys think are the best (older, pulpy) movies with evil nazis? For me, Where Eagles Dare, The Guns of Navarone and Raiders of the Lost Ark comes to mind...

There's a fair bit of action, but long periods of dialogue. It's also long (over two hours) which means the action is fairly spread out.

The only thing I liked/seemed plausible about the Terminator movie was that Skynet turned out to be Siri.

Or 'Rear Window' for more Grace or 'North by Northwest' for more Grant (rewatched both recently - they're great) or maybe 'Bringing up Baby' also for more Grant (don't really remember this one).

Edit: I can see the mouse was faster on the ball with a couple of those.

i've already seen rear window and north by northwest and vaguely remember some like it hot i've went with 4th option


LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

overall pleasant movie to watch, very much in the mold of Top Hat in terms of humor but to me it wasn't as good, a movie to relax if you're a movie buff






idk how Italian crew filming in Spain did it, but whole nameless trilogy and once upon a time in the west is masterpiece of western to me, re-hash even better than the first film



your typical Hitchcock movie, idk i appreciate them all but none of them really make my jaw drop to the floor

i've found some of the movies ballmouse suggested so next up will be lover come back :P

^I remember I liked this, if you wanted a nice sixties comedy similar to  To Catch a Thief

I liked this too

Serviceable if a bit bland, without really bringing anything new to the genre or delivering the thrills you would hope for from this kind of thing. One scene stood out as being particularly bad and extremely unlikely (but apparently it was 'the single best scene in the film', according to the reviewer at rogerebertdotcom).

Tons more charm than the recent Fuqua remake. Deftly balances the lighter mood with the seriousness of the proceedings. Brynner and Coburn in particular were meant for slinking about as lean gunslingers.

Brynner upon meeting the wood chopping Bronson:

'I'm a friend of Harry Lucks. He tell's me you're broke.'

'Nah, I'm doing this because I'm an eccentric millionaire.'

Wait, how come Steve McQueen didn't get his character's name on the poster?

Fun fact: Steve Mcqueen's son Chad played the most vicious and peroxided Cobra Kai member in Karate Kid.

Fun Fact: Stanley Kubrick's dream was to film McQueen and Ally McGraw, then the world's most famous couple, copulating in a feature film. He missed his shot, so tried and failed again with Cruise and Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut.

i saw The Seven Samurai first, and was badly disappointed when i finally saw The Magnificent Seven (1960 version). McQueen was badly miscast. 

 

i think The Wild Bunch is a better version of the same story.

 

or even Young Guns.

 

anybody ever see The Cowboys with Bruce Dern? worth a spin?

post #14127 of 14435
I saw Seven Samurai first too (and prefer it too), but I had a good enough time with Sturges' version. I didn't really mind McQueen here either.

I don't recall the story of The Wild Bunch, but I recently saw Young Guns, and it's definitely a very different story (and apparently rather close to the real life story of Billy the Kid).

I've seen it. I don't remember being blown away. It's kind of hokey.

Wild Bunch is about a bunch of old outlaws getting squeezed out of the outlaw west. 

 

but details and circumstances aside, the fundamental story of all 3 (at least as i see it) is fatalistic brotherhood.

Hmm, I'm not really disagreeing, but I think the story of Seven Samurai and thus Magnificent 7 (1960) is just as much about sacrifice (which is why I think the tacked on Leone-style revenge plot of the remake was a mistake).
