So you have access to movies where somebody takes a video camera in the
theater and videos the movie while they watch it? Do you use second hand
gum?

I have access to much more than that, sorry you have such a small
imagination.
Maybe if you had a bigger imagination you wouldn't be so negative

It doesn't take much imagination when you include the words "copy" and
"poor" in a sentence about a movie that was just released.

If it is such a simple explanation, then just give it and don't be so coy,
Roy.

Then you won't have people think you are a cheapskate.

I just watched the DVD version.

I watch almost every movie that has any kind of rating and see it in a
theatre with a film student friend if its good.

I watch movies here while i play poker.

If the quality is poor i dont watch it.

Often the studio releases a dvd before they open in theatres to create a
buzz ???


Seven Pounds and Gran Torino are excellent movies.

Victor Davis Hanson gave a strong review to "How the West was Won" I
think I will see it sometime, and then rent "How the West was Lost"
and then rewatch the NBA finals to find out "How The West Was Beat"

Hey Gary how are ya?

When i was a kid I saw this movie I think it was called killer Santa or
something. It was about a psycho who dressed like Santa and killed
people. There really was no story, but every scene was him basically
killing someone.

lol

Silent Night Deadly night-That was it!

The person who made that had to have had some deep seeded issues!

I couldn't count the number of people he killed either. After like 27 I
stopped caring and became numb!

Another good one is the movie: "Transiberian".

It's a psychological thriller type, and it takes place mostly on a
train on the famous Russian Transsiberian Railroad; in winter, of
course.

The characters in the movie are taking the seven day, 5000 mile Beijing
to Moscow trip.

The movie opens to an early scene in the train where, in the sleeping
compartment, a piped in tune of "The Captain and Tennile"'s "Love Will
Keep Us Together" is playing. One of the characters is fooling around
with a cheap plastic volume dial and wants to know if: "there's a way
of shutting this fucking thing off!" (or words to that effect)

So, that's an agreeable start to a movie, right there.


It's the sort of movie that you don't fully appreciate until a while
after it's over, not during the movie. Not particularly during the
movie, because things seem to happen rather slowly, you don't know
what's going to happen next, and nothing seems to have really happened
already, anyway. Until the story comes together towards the end that
is.

What you finally realize after the movie is over is that, there was a
feeling of tension building, of which you weren't completely cognizant
at the time, and now you know why.

In other words, there are characters that make things feel a little
uncomfortable, but there doesn't seem to be an apparent reason why. At
least, there doesn't seem to be anything outside of the social
ordinary going on.

After the movie plays out, you can remember the too subtle cues that
provoked your natural instincts of caution: when someone's "a little
too friendly" but not quite; inappropriately familar or not?; maybe
you're judging unfairly, maybe not; are these people insinuating
themselves for some reason, or are you just being overly skeptical?

Something was happening after all, and it was the insidious nature of
it all that you felt. The game between the movie and the audience is
that the innocent characters seemed caught in the flow of obscure
events and unable to escape the inevitable.


Woody Harrelson was in it, which always seems like a negative, but with
"No Country For Old Men", that's two in a row on the plus side for
Woody Harrelson.

Ben Kingsley played a good Russian detective.

The ending was a little too much on the hollywood side. Why can't they
end a movie like a Graham Greene novel, and end it in the same tone
that made the other 90% of the movie a good movie.

You've just described exactly how I feel after watching a Sylvester Stalone
movie. Thanks so much for putting my feelings in to words. Some may think
Stalone a bit past his prime, but not me! I believe he's matured as a
serious dramatic actor and is currently doing his finest work. I don't
want to seem presumptious but let's just say that if "Rambo IV" doesn't win
the Oscar for best picture , there is no justice in the world.

Yours, in mutual artistic appreciation,

Irish Mike

I'll have to check that movie out. I think the only Western that I've
watched all the way through is "High Noon" and I loved it.

I've seen most of "The Searchers", I thought it was good but nothing
jaw dropping.

Jeff Bridges is one of those guys that directors love. Malleable,
talented, can fill a wide range.

And Bridges in Big Lebowski... pure unadulterated greatness.

Ya, Jeff Bridges was good in Iron Man, too. With Robert Downey Jr,
there was good acting all around in this movie.

I just saw "Iron Man" on Comcast Pay Per View. Good movie; the iron
suit was actually the star of the movie. It was probably the best
"super hero movie" I've seen yet.

Robert Downey Jr gave the super hero character some personality for a
change. Odd personality, ya, but better than most in that genre.

Jeff Bridges was in the movie, also. What's the deal with him, he looks
like Rob Reiner now.

Well bucko, here's a short list of six good westerns:

Lonesome Dove
Unforgiven
Comanche Moon
Appaloosa
Dead Man's Walk
Stalking Moon

Irish Mike

Heard good things, want to see Appaloosa. Out on DVD in a few weeks.

Unforgiven. In my top 10. Though it's shot in a simple, subtle
manner... there's a scene I rate among the most powerful I've ever
seen in a theater (my dad took me to see it in Indiana, way back
when...).

Eastwood walked alone and drunk into the room full of men commissioned
to kill him. "Well sir, you are a cowardly son-of-a-bitch, you just
shot an unarmed man." - - "well, he should've armed himself, if
he's gonna decorate his saloon with my friend..."

You know the rest. It's not the same as a clip on youtube out of

Catching Gran Torino after work. Slumdog Millionaire tomorrow. Lots
of movies this week.

Heard good things, want to see Appaloosa. Out on DVD in a few weeks.

Unforgiven. In my top 10. Though it's shot in a simple, subtle
manner... there's a scene I rate among the most powerful I've ever
seen in a theater (my dad took me to see it in Indiana, way back
when...).

Eastwood walked alone and drunk into the room full of men commissioned
to kill him. "Well sir, you are a cowardly son-of-a-bitch, you just
shot an unarmed man." - - "well, he should've armed himself, if
he's gonna decorate his saloon with my friend..."

______________________________



Lots of good scenes in Unforgiven. My fave is when The Kid kills a man and
then discovers that it does not feel as good as he thought so he start's
drinking. Trying to make himself feel better, he tells Clint that at least
the guy had it comin'. Clint, says, "We all have it comin', kid."

I also like the very last scene when Clint rides away and tells the town
that they'd better bury Ned right and leave the whores alone or "I'll come
back here and kill everyone of you sons-a-bitches!"

This comment pisses me the fuck off. While he is certainly right
about the run of Westerns in general, he is completely wrong about the
ones we actually remember, and he'd best do a damn good job if he
wants to outdo the ones we remember.

Some random examples:
Clint Eastwood in anything by Sergio Leone (or The Outlaw Josie Wales
or Unforgiven)
Robert Redford in Jeremiah Johnson
Anyone in Roger Corman's The Shooting
Anyone in Little Big Man
John Wayne in The Shootist or most things he was in
Anyone in No Country for Old Men
Jack Palance in Shane

Pretty much anyone can come up with others.

My favorite line from Unforgiven: "Deserves got nothin' to do with
it."

"I don't deserve to die this way."
"Deserve's got nothing to do with it."

Unforgiven is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Clint is as riveting now as the grizzled, burnt out gunslinger as he was in
his early classic spaghetti westerns, except with more depth.

I always found that line a little disappointing though, since the whole
movie leads to us to believe that Little Billy DOES deserve it. I suppose it
fits the character that he had nothing witty to say there. I love his rant
as he leaves town, "..and don't be hurtin' no whores".

that Westerns were usually poorly acted but he was going to act well.

I think it's worth a look if you enjoy low key westerns. V. Mort was pretty
good and Ed Harris is almost always good. You'll have to make up your own
mind about Renee Zellwiger (sp?).

The first 30 minutes or so were good, but the rest sucked. I was

Any of you guys seen the original (1951)? No, I wasn't born yet either,
but I get a kick out of some of those old sci-fi movies. I thought the
original was very impressive, haven't seen the new one.

I didn't see "Seven Pounds" but have to agree with your assessment of the
new "Day The Earth Stood Still" movie.
Wooden acting, dopey dialogue and an obnoxious child actor. The new James
Bond flick is almost as bad. No real plot - just a jumble of action shots
done with what looks like a shakey hand neld camera. Not nearly as good as
the first Daniel Craig Bond film. One film I did enjoy was the Ed Harris,
Virgo Mortensen western, "Appoloousa" (sp?). Well done in a low key way -
reminded me a little of "Unforgiven".
