Meh, I'm tired of Ben-Hur

GIVE ME SPARTACUS!

Or is that not in the TCM library?

I've been slacking off so much :( HOWEVER...I'll be watching tons of movies for the next week. Nonetheless I did catch one movie last night called Invitation to a Gunfighter starring Yul Brynner. This was a movie that was a complete missed opportunity. Brynner plays a gunfighter who's hired to knock...

A belated "I hope Karie is alright" from me. As for House , it's not one of my favourite shows but Hugh Laurie is great. It's hard to believe that an Englishman is playing that character. I also like the portrayal of the character because he looks and talks a lot like one of the sports talk radio ho...

I was pretty amazed by Hume Cronyn's performance in this film. I knew he could play smooth talking villian, but in general his villainy was more verbal than physical. Here he manages to combine both to create one of the most despicable characters I have ever seen. I was absolutely floored at how ph...

I apologize for not going through with the rest of the Dirty Harry movies. I haven't gotten a chance to watch the rest of them for various reasons. Luckily for me, AMC will be re-airing all 5 near the end of the month.

Well I watched Magnum Force (the 2nd Dirty Harry) movie and it was alright. Actually I fell asleep before the movie ended so I couldn't tell you 100% how I feel about it but I thought they softened the Harry Calllahan character a bit. He didn't have quite the same hard edge as he had in the original...

Dirty Harry is a film that I first show in the movie theatre, I was so appalled that I almost walked out, but my wife & I decided to stay. I hate double posting but oh well. Was it really THAT shocking at the time? Did you see Death Wish in the theatres too and did it have that kind of affect on yo...

mrsl I don't get technical but what I mean is if a movie is originally in widescreen (aka with the black bars) and a channel shows it full screen you end up missing a lot of the picture. TCM used to do an excellent little feature about it between movies that illustrated it quite well.

I heard about this at another message board. As I said there, i've seen an interview once with him and he looked completely different then I thought he would.

I wonder if there's a future generation of Don LaFontaines out there?

I also saw the remastered version of "How The West Was Won" on the Westerns channel. Very clean. They even managed to get rid of the screen lines most of the time. There should be some more showings coming up. Is it shown in the correct aspect ratio? It's not my favorite western but i'll watch it i...

I spent the night watching Dirty Harry . AMC is playing all 5 of the Dirty Harry movies this week remastered and such in conjunction with the recent DVD set release. I've never seen any of the movies though i've tried watching the first one before. I must say after watching the first DH movie that i...

I got chance to see two Barbara Stanwyck movies. The first Clash By Night was one of Fritz Lang's later films. It's interesting because it features Marilyn Monroe in a very early role and she is very good, very natural. Barbara Stanwyck is great as the woman who settles down, despote knowing she ha...

Just a future note:

I bought the two volume Mr. Moto set and should get it in a couple or so weeks. I plan to run by each movie chronologically in a separate thread.

Bogie, what's this 'feverish stupor' you mention? Hope you're feeling better.
Thanks for the concern. I had a virulent chest cold that evolved into the worst cough i've ever had. I'm fine now though still not 100%. (i'm about 99.9% better tho)
