Re: I Loved It As A Kid, But I Just Can't Sit Through It Anymore...Or Vice Versa!  (reply)
I can't watch THE FLINTSTONES anymore. I adored this show as a kid and tried watching it fairly recently and was totally put off by the laugh track. With a live action comedy from the period you can kid yourself into thinking that the...

Re: The Body Snatcher (reply)
I just watched this again this evening and, for me , this movie truly benefits from repeat viewings. A masterpiece of direction; there isn't a wasted frame in this. It isn't surprising to realise that the director, Robert Wise, would go...

I remember THE TROUBLE WITH TRACY and it was,for its time, the reason why every Canadian actor wanted to go south to try to make it, but this SMALL WONDER show looks worse, and according to IMDB it ran for 4 seasons. Who in gods name...

Re: THE BIRDS (reply)
For me, the scene where Tippi waits outside of the school and has a smoke while the children sing THAT SONG and the birds gather gradually on the monkey bars is one of the great examples of film making that i've ever seen. i just want to...

Another giveaway is the UNIVERSAL INTERNATIONAL logo in the top right corner. And what's with the babe in the red dress with the heaving bosoms? Were any filmgoers upset at the lack of samein the actual movie?

About 20 years ago i got to watch PSYCHO with somebody who not only had never seen it before but had not even heard of the movie. When the big reveal happened before Simon Oaklands psychiatrists' speech, my friend, who'd been paying...

Re: "L. Maltin's MOVIE GUIDE" (reply)
This bothers me! A staple of hard media finally admits its own redundancy. When I was a preteen i used to read his book virtually cover to cover. It was truly the cinefiles bible and now it's over! This really bothers me!

Re: Favorite Supporting Performances in Classic Horror Films (reply)
I was fortunate enough to get to see a 35 mm screening of FRANKENSTEIN this past Friday night and Frederic Kerr as the old Baron just killed! Pretty much every line that he had got a laugh out of the audience, so, on the strength of...

Re: A Field In England (reply)
Just watched this this past week and it was good. It didn't knock me out the way KILL LIST did but few horror films in the last few years have. I think that Wheatley is definately a filmmaker to keep an eye on. Stylistically, it struck...

Re: Which episodes of once-great TV shows have the producer seeing a shark's dorsal fin below his feet? (reply)
CAROLINE IN THE CITY when she finally got together with Richard, and FRASIER when Niles and Daphne finally got together. IMHO those types of plot resolutions should be saved for series finales.

FACE OF FIRE. For me it's one of James Whitmores' finest hours. There's a thread in the 60s folder if you want more info on it. Last time I checked on IMDB it had 10 user reviews so it's pretty obscure. I found it absolutely haunting!

Re: Worst Big-Time Movie of the Seventies. (reply)
I had thought that SEXTETTE was the worst musical I'd ever seen, and then i recently saw the film version of JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL. This movie could replace water-boarding at Gitmo.
