An urge to watch an old film again
Leads to an urge to watch one I've not seen yet
The Battle of Algiers
Team America: World Police
Recents are Jaws and Blade runner.
I started watching Wyat Earp yesterday, incredibly when I was critiquing Kevin Costner, neither of my lodgers knew who he was!!!!!!
Is that normal. How old do I feel
The Princess Bride
Independence Day. Still the best destruction of a metropolitan area. Just a fucking great film from the 1950s.
War of the Worlds, surely?
i could watch this forever
Brief Encounter- favourite film ever.
Princess Bride- saw it on the big screen again at the Prince Charles a month ago for the anniversary. My name ...
Aliens- I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit.
Star Wars-(a new hope) obvs.
Barry Lyndon. For the narration...
Yeah same thing. Earth vs the Flying Saucers.
Harrumph. WotW (1950s) is infinitely superior to Independence Day. Even the Spielberg version is better than ID.
That said; ID is overblown B movie guff and patriotism... I sometimes wonder if the producers/film makers were deliberately going for cheese.
Invasion of the Bodysnatchers 1956 and 1978 versions only
Attack the block
Seen neither, dammit. '78 version was on UK Netflix for a while but then disappeared.
The 1956 has more Cold War paranoia but the 1978 has Donald Sutherland
No no no no, too many other films to see to go back and watch ones I've already seen
I can recommend the doc, I saw it at the cinema recently, it's been put together in a very interesting way, the drama and real news clips.
Oddly enough, I never actually saw the film - not really my cup of tea!
The masterpiece that is:
I like 9 Songs. It introduced me to music I'd not normally have listened to, and it's a nice little story. The explicit sex is superfluous.
