A scene from LoTR. Pretty decent even if there are no splosions in it.
(can't embed this one folks)
Those movies were great. Being a fan of the books, I was mystified as to how they were going to make them into movies. But it was quite successful. They did a great job.
Do Not forget Bud Abbout and Lou Castello meet frankenstein something like that? lolo Black & white, those were the days....
Sharon, found the scene. Maybe it can be interpreted other ways???
He was going to have his men build the bridge properly and maintain their moral in order to shame the Japanese Commandant. He committed hara kiri at the end of the movie. He prevented the destruction of the bridge because he was proud that his men were able to kep their spirits up and complete the bridge. At the end he realizes that he lost sight of the military objective.
That's such a funny coincidence! I'm waiting for my friend to get off work, 'cause he's bringing over "The Bridge on the River Kwai" to watch! I babbled about it at work today So, I'm going to look at it with a different perspective, and see what I end up thinking about it
Big trouble in little China(1986). I was forced to watch this. I thought it was cute. Nothing more.
Kurt Russell is king! A square headed king!
Ahem. Some of my favourites:
Koyaanisqatsi(1982). Words cannot discribe how beautiful this movie is, also it's a pyschadelic drug.
Disney's Robin hood(1973). One of my childhood favourites that still stands up as a brilliant movie. Great music, great animation, great voice acting, just great all round.
The Road(2009). If you ever feel like spiraling down into a pit of abismal depression watch this movie. I loved it but I only watched it once.
Evil dead 2(1987). Awsome!!!! 'nuf said.
Monty python and the holy grail(1974). Non-stop hilarity from start to finish.
Event horizon(1997). One of the few horror movies I've seen and enjoyed. Quite disturbing.
Threads(1984). England if it was nuked. Very good but also depressing.
Rambo IV(2008). Probably wouldn't appeal to those lacking in testosterone but I loved it. The only time when I've been in the cinema and people have started clapping after the film.
Aqua teen hunger force colon movie film for theaters(2007). Drug use is advised to accompany this movie. Very funny but makes little sense.
P.s Thanks for all the suggestions everyone, as you can probably tell I haven't watched many classics.
I saw "Koyaanisqatsi" and "Threads". Excellent choices! "Holy Grail" was funny. Thanks for the other choices, fiac!
(Though, I wouldn't watch a "Rambo" film ever)
Reign of Fire was a good end of the world/apocalypse movie.
Never heard of it. Thanks!
Is that a movie?
woody allen films are the best, Manhattan being possibly my favourite.
Here's a curveball for'ya, Oldboy, a terrific film which introduced me to the world of Korean cinema.
I used to love Woody Allen films, with "Manhattan"(1979), and Crimes and Misdemeanors"(1989) being my favorites!
I stopped watching "Oldboy" once he ate that octopus. Yuk!
ha. good timing. let us know what you think! enjoy!
Dead Man ('95) was a great flick. Other than the crappy Neil Young soundtrack, there isn't much to complain about with that film.
Beat the Devil ('53) was an exceptional movie. Gina Lollobrigida! what more do you need?
Kelly's Heroes ('70) is my favorite crime movie.
I really enjoyed "Beat the Devil". Thanks for the other two recommendations! I hadn't heard of "Dead Man" before.
great I allways found also: "Mutiny on the Bounty":
I liked both versions, as well! I even liked "The Bounty"(1984).
Most of these are newer movies (not your favs) but maybe you seen some? And thanks for posting in my forum!
#1 "Dinner For Schmucks"
#2 "What a Girl Wants"
#3 "The Hangover"
#4 "The Town"
#5 "Repo Man"
#6 "The Social Network"
#7 "When in Rome"
#8 "Raising Genius"
#9 "Mars Needs Moms"
#10 "Season of the Witch"
#11 "Life as We Know it"
#12 "Turkey Bowl"
#13 "Soul Surfer"
#14. "Hall Pass"
Thanks for these recommendations, winerkleiner! I've only seen "Repo Man"(1984), out of the entire list!
Funny, that's the only one I've seen on that list, too.
After viewing it again, I agree that Alec thought exactly what you said he thought. I also believe he was delusional throughout the entire film. I forgot how well made the film was! David Lean was no doubt, one of the greatest diectors ever. And William Holden plays cynicism as good as anyone.
Seven Samuri, and Godfarther.
Both are excellent films, Roma60! Are you saying you liked them, or didn't like them?
Has anyone seen "Molly" about a young lady who has autism her whole life, had a experimental surgery proformed, became a genius, and her immune system attacked and she went back to being autisic again. Based on a true story.
Never heard of it. Hard to believe someone could become a genius, even momentarily, through surgery?
Probably Tactics trainer is going to be changed
