Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 16, 2023, 03:55:54 AMI enjoyed M.T.'s series. And from what I understand (as to the real queen), she lost the love of her life. And remember, there wasn't modern day counseling nor medications to deal with depression. Also, considering her position in society, I suspect that even if those options were available that she probably felt like it was her duty to deal with her feelings and struggles by herself. But that's one of those "What if?" questions which is neither here nor there.PD
QuoteA Time to Kill is a 1996 American legal drama film based on John Grisham's 1989 novel of the same name. Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey, and Kevin Spacey star with Donald and Kiefer Sutherland appearing in supporting roles. The film received mixed reviews but was a commercial success. It is the second of two films based on Grisham's novels directed by Joel Schumacher, with the other being The Client released two years prior. (Source)
Quote from: Karl Henning on September 18, 2023, 07:04:18 PMWatching Edward Scissorhands again (as I posted earlier, I forget that Alan Arkin was in the cast.) I cannot help an aggravated sensation that Danny Elfman's music is facile and saccharine. The saccharine character is perforce in support of the narrative, I get and grant that.
Quote from: SimonNZ on September 15, 2023, 01:57:27 PMMy first exposure to this play in any form, which is probably why it felt like a bit of a slog, though I feel they also went slower and drew scenes out more than they needed to. I suspect a rewatch will be easier, now knowing the shape of the work.That aside very well acted by everyone, especially the two female leads, including a young Juliet Stevenson.

We first saw it with the narration, so it does not bother us, although, yes, it really is unnecessary..................

Quote from: SonicMan46 on September 19, 2023, 06:24:10 AMThanks Cato for the recommendation (not seen before) - last night, we viewed an Amazon streaming rental (did not have narration) and really enjoyed (I'm an American, and Native American, reading/documentary fan x decades); in addition to your comments, the scenery is magnificent (from Wiki, filming locations attached - we've traveled to Alberta & British Columbia and did some overnights in Banff & Jasper National Parks).

Quote from: Cato on September 19, 2023, 09:14:58 AMThe scene where the Barbara Hershey character describes a massacre committed by the "Bloodless" Colorado Third is (unfortunately) quite accurate.Yes, everything is done well. Kurtwood Smith plays his usual angry, stiff-necked, and unreasonable character, yet at the end...well, one must watch the movie!
Quote from: Karl Henning on September 19, 2023, 03:11:07 PMYes! Classic!

QuoteUnforgiven is a 1992 American Western film starring, directed, and produced by Clint Eastwood, and written by David Peoples. The film tells the story of William Munny, an aging outlaw and killer who takes on one more job, years after he had turned to farming. The film co-stars Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, and Richard Harris. Unforgiven received critical acclaim, with praise for the acting (particularly from Eastwood and Hackman), directing, editing, themes and cinematography. The film won four Academy Awards: Best Picture and Best Director for Eastwood, Best Supporting Actor for Hackman, and Best Film Editing for Joel Cox. Eastwood was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance, but he lost to Al Pacino for Scent of a Woman. The film was the third Western to win Best Picture, following Cimarron (1931) and Dances with Wolves (1990). Eastwood dedicated the film to directors and mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel. (Source)
