Quote from: SonicMan46 on January 24, 2023, 12:58:55 PMThe Count of Monte Carlo (1934) starring Robert Donat and Elissa Landi. After three silent films, this is the first one w/ sound - a DVD-R > HD upgrade (Amazon streamer) which could have had a better restoration - own the 2002 movie w/ Jim Caviezel & Guy Pearce - as expected the story in each has been changed - read the Dumas novel as a teen so cannot remember how the book went?Shakespeare in Love (1998) w/ the stars below - despite some controversies (see link below), we still enjoy this film - up for 13 Oscars and winner of 7, including Best Picture.

Quote from: SonicMan46 on January 22, 2023, 01:14:46 PMAmazingly, Howard the Duck has been released on 4K! The film debuted in 1986 (Wiki Source of 2nd pic below) and on VHS tape in 1987 - son and I rented from Blockbuster that year but cannot recall much (although I was fond of Lea Thompson) - have never seen again and no plans to purchase after all of these years. Ratings were poor, as expected (checkout the link if interested) - 14% on Rotten Tomatoes and up for a lot of 'Golden Raspberry Awards' (see pic) - BUT for one of the worst movies made, is a one-time viewing warranted?

Quote from: LKB on January 22, 2023, 01:15:11 PMA word regarding James Horner. I wish l could respect him more. He did solid work on some highly regarded films, Apollo 13 and Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan among them. But he had definite plagerist tendencies, and l keep running into reminders of that unfortunate fact. A couple nights ago l happened upon a reference to the 1988 animated feature The Land Before Time, which l remembered seeing bits and pieces of over thirty years ago. I remembered liking some of the music, and Googled the soundtrack. The inevitable YouTube choices appeared, as did Horner's name.I wanted to be fair, and thought, " This is a film for children, fairly well thought of before The Lion King came along and devoured its target audience. Maybe l won't hear anything suspicious, maybe it's really all Horner. "I picked a track at random called, " The Migration. "I heard Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliette.

Scheherazade was certainly an interesting musical choice for the scourging of the Christ.Oh! I had forgotten that there's some Elgar, too, whose use is much more apposite than the Rimsky-Korsakov (at first)
Quote from: LKB on January 25, 2023, 06:19:55 PMAlong with Rossini, Singing in the Rain and, of course, Ludwig Van, both synthesized and traditional. It's a Helluva film, still hard to watch in a few scenes. I should find a good reaction to post in that thread...
