Hey I forgot to mention Sci Fi__Science Fiction______________________


Kill Bill 1 & 2 with David Caradine with Uma Thurman reminded me of my dream to be a samurai warrior-ess.
Great swordplay and masterful acting. RIP David.

Might set up residence in this thread, I could just comment on Foreign and Classics ad infinitum.

There's just something abut Tarantino's work that never clicked with me, not even Pulp Fiction. Not saying he's not a good director, not at all, there's just something about his style that tires me.

I'll start with my favourite Ladies type of classic. It has to be something with Bette Davis, I adore her. I'll go for "Now, voyager". Mr. Macha still lights my cigarettes a la Paul Heinreid.

LMAO. I like your style . I'm envisioning Igmar Berman smoking a cigarette and wearing a man's hat,
waiting for a suave male to render a lighter to her smoke. Noir Classics "D

I am a Joan Crawford, Lana Turner, Bette Davis fan. Let's see , hmm....I've got to check on a few names
for titles and check back in.

 

To Add :  Movies __Mildred Pierce , both vintage movie starring Crawford and cable production starring Cate Winslet.

                              Superb acting, book and screen reproductions. Engrossing and sad. Have you questioning why

                              as a parent you do the things you do. It's all about a healthy dose of love and discipline for

                              balance but some are just born to be cruel. I don't have children but this movie had me

                               mad, sad and yelling at the TV evileye

 

                               Immitation of Life, starring Lana Turner. Quite a controversial film at the time. Speaks to

                                many of African or mixed ancsetry with respect to self value and organised predjudices.

 

                         West Side Story, stage and screen. Rita Moreno and many other now classic names. Foxy, fine

                             fantastic Rita and incredible choreography. Another ground breaking film on racial issues

 

Was Bette Davis in " Hush ,hush sweet Charlotte " ? this lady frightened me and the movies are decades ago.

Wildseed, surely you meant "Ingrid Bergman"? biggrin Not a fan of hers, though. My ladies are Bette Davis, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Moreau and Claudette Colbert. Post 60s era adds Irenne Papas and Romy Schneider. My men would be: Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck (sometimes), Leslie Howard (I adore him! Have you seen Pygmalion?), Charles Boyer and (more recent) Yves Montand and Peter O'Toole. Which reminds me I haven't seen The Lion in Winter...this year. Heh, probably my all time favourite movie.

 Yes, Ingrid Bergman. I agree that her range wasn't much. I just liked the way she talked and interacted with

leading actors. I'm probably remembering Lauren Bacall more I think. She and Humphrey Bogart were class

acts on and off the screen. Not my era, several decades away but I grew with old classics. Nothing new in the

Caribbean no Gregory Peck, Maurice Chevalier, Yves Montand , Peter O'Toole ,to name a couple. All amazing

For a few Cult Classics I offer :

" Star Wars " with Mark Hamilton, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. Fx was still improving but these 3 films
made me believe in the " force " The night sky never looked closer or believable as it did then..

I know vintage " Star Trek " with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy fans have had great to mediocre movies but
the Tv series remain untouchable. Aside from Admirable Kirk, Spock and Worf on the Starship Enterprise,
" Deep Space Nine " with Avery Brooks, Alexander Sidigg & Colm Meaney get my high mark. I did enjoy
Capt Pickard on ST, and another ST version called " Voyager" as well.

Not a movie but honourable mention " the Twilight Zone " , the original

" The Fifth Element " with Bruce Willis and Chris_____? Incredible rush.

Kill Bill 1 & 2 where I learned about the " five fingered exploding heart technique " from Uma Thurman.

All Matthew Broderick films in his younger days ( Neil Simon especially ) the best for me were :
" Ferris Buehler's Day Off "/ " Glory " / " Master Harold and the Boys " / by So African playwright
Athol Fugard , one of my favourite authors.

Client Eastwood and " Spaghetti Westerns " ( producer Sergio Leone ) with Lee van Cleef & great actors whose names I forget.
" A Fistful of Dollars " & " The Good The Bad and the Ugly " were 2 favorites. The closest to my heart is
still " the Bridges of Madison County " with Meryl Streep.

Meryl Streep is indeed a chameleon and grand in all her roles but " Sophies Choice " chokes me up every time.

In his early days Gerard Depardiu as thoroughly engrossing to me , I've all of his early work. " The Return of Martin

Guierre " was one of my favourites.

The list may go on but I know you guys have your own :D

 Yes, yes and YES to your Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep and Gerard Depardieu choices. Same here. Speaking of Clint Eastwood's movies, Unforgiven comes close second.

 I'm a big fan of both choices... I don't know if you'd consider Cyranno part of Depardieu's earlier work, but I love it too. I was very young when I saw it (plus it's got tons of flashy swordfighting ), so maybe my memory is a bit rose tinted, but I remember being completely blown away.... Cried myself a river at the end.

Aaaw how could I forget about Cyranno? That's one of Mr. Macha's favourites. I think he can recite the lines from the duel scene word for word.

Kindred souls we are. Cyrano de Bejerac ( awful spelling mistake ) is priceless. Did you see me
dueling in the wings ? Syrio and Arya would be proud :D

For Aegon so loved Star Wars that he used his only pocket money, so that he could buy all 6 dvds, so that he did not have to rent them anymore, but watch them blisfully forever!
Have all six plus special features plus the complete CLone Wars collection from 2003 and 2008-.
I also love the old Carry On films very much, Sid James is a comic genius with a brilliant laugh.

I only have a few silvers left and a copper or two, otherwise I'd gladly reimburse you :D

I am not a big enthusiast of the prequels as you know but I did view them with great anticipation.

Uh your grace.....your um.. gravatar seems to have........ shrunken.

 What has happened to our dear sweet Gerard ? He was also brilliant in the Hollywood production " Green Card ".

Beyond that all his projects went to seed. There are always younger even more vibrant actors on the scene but

he just kept taking on parts that were beneath him. It would be akin to Max von Sydow portraying a geriatric giglio.

I would only expect passion from him no matter the part. I was so embarressed to see him on the Graham Norton

show show last season, they practically dissed him . I wanted him to swear at their antics and storm off, but that

action would have given attention for all the wrong reasons. He really sat mute and in awkward silence. One of his

shirt buttons was straining to pop open and the other sprang before seating. Men really need women to tend to them

why is that ????

This thread will be mine mine mine mwaaahahahaha
If we are talking about Film Noir = "Double Indemnity" is its synonym. A Billy Wilder´s gem. The woman: Barbara Stanwick (bad bad girl she was).

Three more, I can´t help myself:

"All about Eve" (one more Bette Davis fan here) I think Mankiewicks was the director.

"It´s a wonderful life" by Frank Capra (James Stewart. I don´t remember the actress)

And one of my favourites of all time: "The third man" by Carol Reed, with Orson Welles and Josheph Cotten.

 

Ball of fire... didn´t watched that. How come?

I had to watch Ball of Fire, it was on my Gary Cooper list.  

'All about Eve' has to be one of my all time favourites, but I haven't watched The Third Man yet. Speaking of Orson Welles, have you seen Bondarchuk's Waterloo? Stellar acting all around.

Oh Macha if you only knew what Russian names causes me. They´re my downfall, don´t tempt me. No, I don´t know Bondarchuk. Must check. I´ll lose myself though.no

The third man is one of the best movies I´ve ever seen (or studied). You should watch it. Everybody should.

 

How come I never saw this movie? HOW COME? Is Rod Steiger playing Napoleon??? I love that man. 

"On the waterfront". Another classic I truly love. Marlon Brando and Rod Steiger. Just kill me.

Oh Macha you must make a plan, it's about two friends who meet at Westpoint Military academy, one from the North and one from the South. They become best friends and they're families become quite close, however tensions rise as politically the USA is engulfed in chaos and the two friends soon realise that they will find themselves on opposite sides of the war.
It is one of the best series' I have ever seen, the acting is fantastic as well as the special effects.

I can remember it years ago on the telly, I think my family watched it , but can't really remember it.
Though funnily enough when people started telling me about the English one I thought the same as you Aegon ... what the thing about the American civil war? Ha ha ! Which is why I thought it funny when you made the same mistake ...

Brendan Coyle was in that? Damn, damn, damn.
Italian neorealism, see, I knew you'd be a fan. There are so many great ones to choose from, but I'm hopelessly in love with De Sica's "Umberto D." That ending! aww

 I think I did but don´t remember Brendan Coyle.

Macha: Coyle played a unionized worker at Thorton´s (Armitage) cotton factory. I love industrial novel.

Umberto D: the last scene is when Umberto wants to commit suicide and the puppy (Fick?) saves him, no?

I´m a huge fan of "The Gospel according to St. Matthew" by Passolini. HUGE FAN. And of course, my all time favorite: 8 1/2. Ah, Marcello.

Haa, Mr. Macha loves Passolini, I hate his films with a passion, we always argue over that. Passolini is right there with Antonioni. I know I should like them, but I don't. Passolini always felt so...stiff? to me. Feels like there is no warmth or passion in his films.
Umberto D: well the puppy gets scared and runs away, and Umberto follows him and tries to regain Flick's (had to google the name) confidence. I loved that scene, and the acting. Cried like a baby.

Did you wachted "The Gospel..."? I think this movie is very different from the others (Theorem, for example. Oh, I hate it).  His take on Christianity in this film is almost archaic, very real (documentary like), and the cinematography (camera and light)  has a wonderful simplicity.

Yes, his other movies are quite difficult but you must keep in mind that he was gay (in a bad bad time), marxist and a christian.confuse Too much for only one man.

Theorem, bleh, I can relate to that. The Gospel, no I don't think so, might give it a try.

Macha ,Re: Qwentyn Tarrrantino is not my favorite director either. His work received praises by many but they
did not suit me. I have only seen bits and pieces of his earlier work ( Pulp Fiction )and did not take notice
until Kill Bill 1 & 2( rented on dvd ). I was truly impressed with that pair.

I'm glad this Topic has proven useful. You guys have in common several fine film works that you appreciate.

" Janne Eyre" must be perfunctory reading worldwide. I'd seen the Orsen Wells version , but prefer William
Hurt's version and Micheal Fassbender's recent version a bit more..

What do you guys think of Mark Strong ? What a voice and swagger to match. He was brilliant in several
productions but " Rockinrolla " put him on the map for me.

I'm a big Tom Wilkinson fan ( also in Rockinrolla ) for so many varied roles , he's a chameleon and superb
acting in cutting edge categories. I would imagine him as a major feudal lord in Westeros if not king.

Hey , who gave lady YvB permission to get a beautiful new avatar ??!!!! must E-X-T-E-R-M-I-N-A-T-E.

Death to Smoochy. Shakes the Clown. Anything with Danny Kaye.

That is all.

 It was  a great idea Wildseed.

I don´t like Tarantino either but "Reservoir dogs" is great.

Mark Strong is such a good actor. I have seen him in many movies.  His performance in Body of lies is great.
