Quote from: relm1 on May 24, 2023, 05:51:53 AMIs Dirty Rotten Scoundrels any good? I'll never forget my dad watching this in the late 1980's dying laughing but as a teen, couldn't be interested to join in on the fun but it looks like it could be an enjoyable comedy.
Quote from: SonicMan46 on May 24, 2023, 07:56:30 AMthe newer movie is nearly 2 hours in length and could have been shorter
Quote from: Karl Henning on May 20, 2023, 05:00:28 PMIt occurs to me, having seen and enjoyed both The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist, that I haven't seen The Green Mile (also directed by Frank Darabont and based on a Stephen King book. So, I'm fixin' to, but at three hours, it's too long for me to slip into the tray tonight. Roger Ebert's review.

Quote from: brewski on May 24, 2023, 05:21:43 PMFirst time seeing Mel Brooks' High Anxiety since 1977, when it was released, and I recall liking it at the time. But this outing, not so much. Comedy is such an ephemeral art, and despite the great cast and a handful of really funny scenes, somehow the humor seems infrequent. I really admire Brooks, make no mistake, but this isn't quite holding up.-Bruce
Quote from: Brian on May 25, 2023, 07:45:10 AMYeah, I think that is the end of his winning streak. The Producers, The Twelve Chairs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Silent Movie are greats. After that, the consistency really started to fall apart. Still, it was worth it for Brooks to make that movie because he got to have dinner with Hitchcock and the great director apparently sent him a congratulatory case of vintage champagne after High Anxiety premiered.
QuoteThe Tuskegee Airmen is a 1995 HBO movie based on the exploits of an actual groundbreaking unit, the first African-American combat pilots in the United States Army Air Corps, that fought in World War II. The film was directed by Robert Markowitz and stars Laurence Fishburne, Cuba Gooding Jr., John Lithgow, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Besides the character of Colonel Benjamin O. Davis Jr. played by Andre Braugher, no other actual real-life Tuskegee airmen were portrayed in this film. Other featured Tuskegee Airmen characters are composites of the men with whom Williams served (middle pic on left). (Source)

QuoteStalag 17 is an American war film, which tells the story of a group of American airmen confined with 40,000 prisoners in a World War II German prisoner-of-war camp "somewhere on the Danube". Their compound holds 630 sergeants, but the film focuses on one particular barracks, where the men come to suspect that one of their number is an informant. The film was directed and produced by Billy Wilder, who with Edwin Blum adapted the screenplay from the Broadway play of the same name. The play was written by Donald Bevan and Edmund Trzcinski, based on their experiences as prisoners in Stalag 17B in Austria. The film stars William Holden, Don Taylor, Robert Strauss, Harvey Lembeck, Peter Graves, and Otto Preminger. Strauss and Lembeck appeared in the original Broadway production. (Source)

QuoteTo Hell and Back is a Technicolor and CinemaScope war film released in 1955. It was directed by Jesse Hibbs and stars Audie Murphy as himself. It is based on the 1949 autobiography of the same name and is an account of Murphy's World War II experiences as a soldier in the U.S. Army. The book was ghostwritten by his friend, David McClure, who served in the U.S. Army's Signal Corps during World War II. (Source)
QuoteOn April 23, 1945, at the age of only 19, Murphy received the Medal of Honor for his actions. Though Murphy's heroism on January 26 was extraordinary, it was not the first time Murphy had distinguished himself. He had previously received over 20 awards for valor, including the Distinguished Service Cross, two Silver Star medals, and two Bronze Star medals for valor in Italy and France. After receiving the Medal of Honor, Murphy was widely celebrated as the most decorated American soldier in World War II and was featured on the cover of Life magazine. Murphy died on May 28, 1971 at the age of 45 in a plane crash near Roanoke, Virginia. He was buried with full military honors in Arlington National Cemetery. (Source)
Quote from: BWV 1080 on May 29, 2023, 11:29:05 AMLesser known 70s noir w 18yo Melanie Griffith (kind of uncomfortable how much of 18Yo Melanie Griffith you get to see). Good film though
Quote from: George on May 29, 2023, 11:57:14 AMI just read that she was 16 years old when they shot the film, though it was released 2 years later.
