Talk about gruesome does anyone remember a flick "Make They Die Slowly"? I have it on VHS which made me keep the old VCR. Caution this film has body parts missing.
Never heard of it, though I personally wouldn't watch a movie because it's gruesome.
While I'm here, I'll make a pitch for vitually any movie that started out as a play. Generally they depend more on intelligent dialogue than on car chases and exploding buildings. A classic example . . . "The Lion in Winter"
"The Lion in Winter"(1968), was pretty good. Peter O' Toole was a bit more restrained than he was in "Becket"(1964), which is a good thing
The Importance of Being Earnest. Nothing like a good Oscar Wilde play.
It wasn't a bad version. Though my favorite version was an audio performance with John Gielgud playing the lead! If you ever find that one, it is well worth a listen
The Postman Always Rings Twice
I saw both the 1946 version, and the 1981 version. I didn't like the 1946 version, simply because of John Garfield. He bores the hell out of me. The 1981 version was just okay, imo.
I just watched Indiana Jones : Vault of the Sacred Ben-Gay (2008).
Yes, there really is a 2008 version.
I'm such an idiot, I looked it up!
And for those of us with a different constitution, there's Lana Turner. Poor female viewers...
Seriously though, Ossessione was the best of that particular run of original/copy/copy-of-copy, and that was kind of long and boring too.
Never heard of it. Thanks!
And yes, you had two pretty girls to look at in both versions(Lana Turner and Jessica Lang), and I had John Garfield and Jack Nicholson. Not much to look at there
scary or gruesome?
silence of the lambs is scary
texas chainsaw massacre is gruesome
"Silence..." didn't scare me.
"Texas..."(the original one), was one of the few films to live up to it's reputation. Very disturbing film.
tell me about it, watched texas one halloween. we begged our parents to rent it for us. when it finished, i sat in shock next to my mom, my brother goes into his room and puts on his scary halloween mask and comes running into the living room making chainsaw noises. i freaked out, ran into a wall and started crying. good times :)
Yes! The last scene with that woman screaming, is quite unforgettable.
I didn't care much for "Coffee and Cigarettes" or it's shooting style. It was, here's a camera, we will turn it on, you guys talk about anything, we will edit it later, look at the camera or don't we don't care, cough, burp, scratch yourself, or fart, it's all good. As long as you drink your coffee and smoke your cigs, we will film it.
Not my style, I like the Hollywood polished high budget stuff, with the big name talents. Save the coffee and cigaretts for Sundance.
sin city, excellent movie done in the style of a graphic novel. good ensemble cast
Just watched Shutter Island - good movie , very grim though
I am terrible with names-wasn't Jack Nicholson is one of those?
Lol, isn't family priceless?
book was better
I'm watching Sin Nombre tomorrow. I got the idea from this thread. Thanks!
