Is this the Civil War miniseries form the 90's?

Not vintage or old, but didn't know where else to put this.  Just saw Promethius.  What a trip! Anyone else seen it?

Yes, me me me! I loved it, really. I guess it's one of those movies that you either really like, or really hate. Luckily for me, I had no expectations, so I really enjoyed the more 'philosophical' approach.

 No you're not Macha ! biggrin  My daughter's father used to try to convince me that Jonze and Anderson were geniuses. I think they  are only little cunnings and that there is no substance in their movies, no flesh , no blood, only decorative stuffs and i distrust that kind of pure aesthetic things.

This, this is what I have a problem with. Their movies lack passion; sometimes they trick you into thinking it's there, but it's not, at least not for me. Aseptic movies. Nothing is worse, not even bad flicks.

I didn't see "Breakfast club" till last year, and I saw "Cool Hand Luke" with my dad on Xmas for the first time. I LOVE it when movies don't age at all and remain a great story regardless.

Life is weird, just spoke on the phone with a friend and told her about Breakfast Club and how i loved this movie when i was a child (ten) . I wanted to rewatch it with Ferris Buller , strange feelings...
Macha i couldn't agree more, i love true guted directors even if they can seem ridiculous to a lot of people...

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).


 Missed that, Andrea, may i have your child part II ? a girl who quotes a Billy wylder movie and Barbra Stanwyck can't be wrong...

I would add Sunset Boulevard with  Gloria Swanson and all of the Cukor movies with Katherine Hepburn. Oh and the great Ava in the barefoot comtessa !

 kissy let´s have bunnies KC! That movie is purrrfection but also Sunset Bouvelard (young William Holden? ). Those amazing shots... yes Wilder was a genius. Some great female characters and I especially love Bette Davis. I think I said this already but that woman and H. Bogart had the best lines in cinema´s history.

Do you remember this one? : ""I'd like ta kiss ya, but I just washed my hair.", playing Madge in Cabin in the Cotton (as she walked down the stairs all magnificent).  Or this one: "Hurt me? You delight me! You've the most amazing lack of humor of anyone I've ever known!" (as Joyce Heath in DANGEROUS).

Film noir is such a great genre. Ugh, The third man (by Carol Reed). . Every movie.

The third man with Orson and his swiss cuckoo clock sentence ! Great stuff :)
If i had to quote men, i would drop Robert Mitchum , "the night of the hunter", so beautiful. Talking about Bette, i'm mad about "all about eve", saw it five times and it still fascinates me.

 yes, here, this I always remember from All about Eve an Margo: "Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke."

Yes, love Mitchum too! you know what, the screenwriters and directors at that time were so so talented.

I just saw an amazing old movie, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why it has a rating of only 6.6 on imdb. There were more than three times when I simply stopped and cheered out loud for the script - one of the best I've ever seen. It's Anatole Litvak's The Journey, with Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner. I just want to hug this movie and never let it go.

so yes, I watched it again. The Lion in Winter. WUT? Peter O´Toole and Katharine Hepburn. Screenplay James Goldman from his play. Directed by Anthony Harvey (btw you can laugh at 2 scenes of this man, no more). It´s based on the tumultous marriage of Henry II (England) and Eleanor of Aquitaine (France)... yes Richard Lion Heart´s parents.

But the lines, the dialogues. I just can´t get enough of this movie. In fact, I think this movie claims its own thread. The acting of course, glorious... ( watch out the last scene... well you could laugh a little at that one because there´s some silly smiles teehee).

I recently saw Apocalypse Now again, but properly for the first time. I was very small when my parents watched it and didn't understand it at all. In fact, all I could remember was Marlon Brando's bald head, he. What a brilliant film. I love the Heart of Darkness/ King Kong subtext, in fact, so many layers and social commentary that you could easily do some literary analysis. And the other war film that is a favourite is Saving Private Ryan.

David Niven and Wendy Hiller in Separate Tables, that is all. They're sooooo good.

One of my favourite warmovies!

 

This week it's exactly 70 years since Operation Market Garden, a good reason to revisit this movie.
