If you want to see a great action flick, then I highly recommend Terminator Salvation starring Christian Bale.

Now Terminator Genisys, on the other hand, is ridiculously stupid! They have a 70-year-old Arnold in that film who is cracking jokes nonstop and smiling at people. The storyline is also really confusing. Avoid this movie.

One of my classmates in college dated Meryl Streep. I never noticed her or her feet.

Geez guys, I was just trying to make clear how much I like her. The rest was just a footnote.

I thought Hell or High Water was probably the best movie Id seen it the last five years at least. I throughly enjoyed it.

Default I like this topic!

This is one of those casual conversations I will always get suckered into - I don't care if I had never spoken with the person before in my life. If movies are mentioned, I'm in.

Here would be my recommendations (largely based upon my favorite movies):

The Shawshank Redemption - agreeing with a few of you that this is the best film ever made. Everything is perfect in this movie, and the marriage of all of the aspects is seamless.

Godfather I & II The III is good relative to other movies, but doesn't deserve to be a part of the perfection that is Godfather. The score, the tragedy, just amazing.

It's a Wonderful Life This is a lot of people's family favorite, and it's that contextual and familial feel that make this movie. I literally cannot watch this movie without simply sitting there in tears like a toddler throughout the entire thing. My wife will come in as I will be watching the movie angrily every year, disgusted that I can't make it 5 minutes without crying.

Lawrence of Arabia Still the most interesting character study I've seen on film. It's not for everyone, as I have no problem sitting there for 3+ hours and devouring it.

River Runs Through It There are few movies that I have dwelt on for days after the fact. I remember when I first saw this as a high school student in early 2000s, and I remember mowing the lawn in a state of morose over this movie.

Schindler's List The scene at the end by Liam Neeson is still probably the most powerful scene I have ever seen in movies. I will weep every time.

Rope If I had to pick my favorite Hitchcock movie, this actually wouldn't be it, but I think it's brilliant and different. The extremely long takes in this film give it a feel as though you are there.

On the Waterfront Iconic quotes, Marlon Brando at his peak, great symbolism, and perfect acting.

12 Angry Men Basically everyone needs to see this movie at some point. It's brilliant. One of my favorite quotes in any film
[Juror #7 gets up and heads to the bathroom]
Juror #9: Now I'm talking here! You have no right to leave this room - !
Juror #8: [calmly stopping him] He can't hear you, and he never will. Let's sit down.


I'll stop for now.

Default Rekindled

Im going to admit that I have an obsession with Turner Classic movies that is beginning to take over my late evening life...right after baseball games finish.

Ive been considering taking a week off from work and doing nothing but watching classic movies. That could describe 7 days in December when it will probably be raining around here anyway...

Ive watched these all again lately:

A Night at the Opera [Marx bros.]
The Man who knew too much [James Stewart & Doris Day]
Bridge on the River Kwai [William Holden, Alec Guinness]
The African Queen [Bogart & Hepburn]
Dark Passage [Bogart & Bacall]
Captain Courageous [Spencer Tracy]
Grand Hotel [ensemble , awesome cast]
Captain Blood [Errol Flynn]
The Long Street [Henry Fonda &Lucille Ball]
The Tuttles of Tahiti [Charles Laughton]
Confidential Agent [Boyer & Bacall]

Still my all time favorites, which you may not need the top billed actors for:
  • Casablanca
    North by Northwest
    The Great Escape
    Larceny Inc
    Papillon
    Treasure of the Sierra Madre

I just watched "Man on Fire" again a few weeks ago. Not that we have a lot of movies at our trailer, but I never get tired of it.

Much respect for her as an actress. Only modern actress that can compare t other greats. I.E. Betty Davis, Joan Crawford, Ida Lupino etc.

But what really impressed me was her love for John Cazale (Fredo, Godfather)
If you've never heard the story of John I suggest you find it. Al Pacino called him the greatest actor he ever knew. He passed away of cancer and Meryl stood by him to the very end. He was the love of her life. Mucho respect for her as a person after I read the story.

GREAT Movie - Only the Brave

Default On The Basis of Sex

I just saw On The Basis of Sex.
Do not get carried away guys, it is a movie about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her historic legal work.
I really liked this film.

I suggest Memento. It's a super film that really sucks you in scene to scene. Anyone else ever seen it?

I just saw "A Star is Born". It is a wonderful movie, and Lady Gaga is awesome. My wife wanted to see it and I wasn't all that thrilled about going, but it was really good.

Personally I thought Dunkirk was boring. The Darkest Hour was excellent.

My fav movie of all time is without question Inherit The Wind. It was remade a few different times, but the 1963 version with Spencer Tracy, Fredrick March, and Gene Kelly is by far the best version. Well worth the time to check it out.

Also, Clint's "Trouble with The Curve" was a very good movie and even better for a baseball fan.

Default Movies

Some of these movies have been mentioned in this thread (several times), so pardon me for reprising them. The one difference between me and most of you
is that I'm old enough to have seen these movies in the theatre when they were originally shown. And of course, I've seen them on the TV many times since.

Anyhow, here are my recommendations......

Casablanca
The Robe
On The Waterfront
Vertigo
North by Northwest
Guns of Navarone
The Great Escape
Dr. Strangelove....especially this one, since I was in the Air Force on a B52 Bomber base when it was in the theatre in 1964
The Sting
Jaws
The Verdict
Absence of Malice

WESTERNS

Ox Bow Incident
High Noon
Shane
Johnny Guitar
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

BASEBALL

Pride of the Yankees
The Natural
The Stratton Story....Monte Stratton pitched for the Chicago White Sox (1934-1938). Jimmy Stewart portrays him in this Academy Award movie (Best original story).

An underrated Chevy Chase film is Funny Farm. I lol'd.

But if you don't like him this won't change your mind

If you're in a San Fran state of mind, definitely check out 'The Game' with Michael Douglas. Great flick. Then watch 'Zodiac,' directed by David Fincher. It is really well done, but there are some chilling parts that are horrifyingly realistic. I wish it wasn't a true story.

Hey Brian1961

Regarding oldies-but-goodies, we both forgot to include The Maltese Falcon.

And, I'll add a relatively recent movie....The Cinderella Man
A terrible title for a great movie featuring the true life story of boxer James Braddock (portrayed by Russell Crowe).

Ted, you're right. I indeed forgot about Casablanca, a genuine favorite.

Octavio, yes bro, Clint and his sensitive mule. I love that scene in "A Fistful of Dollars".

Merry Christmas, guys. --- Brian Powell

Anyone see Birdbox yet on Netflix?

Ive gotten mixed reviews about it. People either love it or hate it. I hope to watch it this weekend.

I agree with Darren regarding The Game with Michael Douglas being a great film. It's one of those films that is awesome the first time you see it if you don't know what's coming in the end.

And someone else mentioned The Gods Must Be Crazy. An odd film but also very good regardless.

If you like classic 1930's, I recommend "Dead End" and "Crime School" with Humphrey Bogart and the Dead End Kids, these 2 came out just before "Angels with Dirty Faces" so if you like that, you'll like the other 2.

Twelve Oclock High with Gregory Peck, Gary Merrill, and Dean Jagger (Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor).

Thanks for mentioning this movie. It brings back fond memories, I saw it when I was 10 years old when it was in the theatres. I thought when I grow up I will join the Army-Air Corps.
And sure enough, I served in the Air Force 1960-1964.

And, thank you Scott for your service.

Watched it tonight, can't say that I'd recommend. Left me wanting more - maybe that is the Netflix plan.

I watched it on new years. It was just ok, but I had the same feeling, wanting more.

Nice to see the doctor from ER was able to find work in the medical field after the apocalypse

Default Bird Box

My wife and I watched it last night. We liked it. There are a lot of unanswered questions, so I'm guessing their will be a sequel or a series coming up.

BTW, I went running through the woods this morning while blindfolded. It didn't go well.
