Quote from: vandermolen on May 25, 2023, 06:45:53 AMI'm a great fan of Burgess Meredith (a great actor). Coincidentally I've been listening to him narrating John Williams's (fine) score for 'The Reivers'. I guess that many people, myself included, associate him with The Penguin from 'Batman' and his endearing contribution to the original (and incomparably better) 'Clash of the Titans'.
Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 25, 2023, 06:53:05 AMGood reminder about the original 'Clash of the Titans'. I'll always remember Burgess Meredith for his performances as the crusty and cranky boxing trainer in the 'Rocky' series (first three).

Quote from: Franco_Manitobain on May 25, 2023, 05:51:09 AMSaving Private Ryan is a great film. I am still scratching my head that it lost the Oscar best picture to Shakespeare in Love?
Quote from: Roasted Swan on May 25, 2023, 08:42:28 AMShakespeare in Love caused a great deal of head scratching for a great number of people!!! Spoiler alert - on one of those wonderful film-nerd forums recently I read an earnest discussion about the fact that the motorbike against which Tom Hanks herocially dies at the end of the film was a version that was not made until after the War - shock/horror and howls of disgust from all true petrol-head/bikers. FWIW - I like Hymn to the Fallen a lot!
Quote from: relm1 on May 25, 2023, 04:38:04 PMWrong. He is always best known for his post apocalyptic role in TZ.I'm teasing. He's a complete cameleon. I first came across him as Rocky's beloved asshole coach and hated him but loved him immediately too. Geesh what a cinematic cameleon. FYI - Rocky 1 is a fantastic film.

Quote from: Karl Henning on May 25, 2023, 07:37:28 AMApart from Batman, I mostly enjoy Burgess Meredith in four episodes of The Twilight Zone, especially "Time Enough at Last" and "The Obsolete Man," though I'm also perhaps fonder than the consensus of "Printer's Devil."
Quote from: Cato on May 24, 2023, 05:33:32 AMYES to the Sinfonietta! "Too atonal" is a marvelously narrow-minded phrase! The Symphony is also an excellent work, but the Sinfonietta burns down the barn, maybe because it is too atonal!
