Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 25, 2022, 11:59:54 AMThat was a peculiar urban legend, that was ... I remember hearing of that, but what was supposed to happen when the movie outruns the album? What was your experience?
Quote from: VonStupp on November 25, 2022, 12:06:05 PMIt was so long ago...If I remember correctly (this was tried from LP and VHS), you time it from the MGM lion and it plays until Munchkinland or so.Picked this off the internet. https://www.everwonder.com/david/wizardofoz/

I had never seen it before, though.Surprised to see Ian Fleming (source novel), Roald Dahl (screeplay), and Albert Broccoli (producer) attached, but snickered when I saw Q and Goldfinger from the Bond films.A few too many songs, and at 2 1/2 hours, tested my patience. Bright and cheery, however.VS
Quote from: JBS on November 25, 2022, 04:36:44 PMI last saw it as a kid; I also remember reading the original novel afterwards.I do remember feeling it went on forever, as the saying is.Supposedly, it was filmed to provide Van Dyke with a Mary Poppins type vehicle in which he was the star, and not, say, Julie Andrews.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 25, 2022, 04:42:17 PMNaked Gun 33 1/3: The Final InsultI loved opening with a parody of the train station/baby carriage scene from The Untouchables. And when Drebin is in the Joint, I benefited from having seen The Great Escape. I think the third movie is the best of the lot, which is the right arc.

The late Angela Lansbury is so easy to love.I saw a lot of scenes I didn't remember. Turns out there is a sub 120-minute version and a nearly 2hr 30min version. I caught the latter apparently.VS
Quote from: greg on November 26, 2022, 05:26:57 PMMade a 4x4 of my favorite movies so far. Saw that I made a 3x3 a year ago, but this time gave it a little more thought.

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 19, 2022, 01:40:00 PMSorry, I know that you didn't ask me, but may I say that I really enjoyed the first one.PD
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 27, 2022, 04:13:52 PMTurns out, too that it is one of my youngest brother-in-law's very favorite movies.As for me, I enjoyed it fine, it's an awfully impressive achievement. Not a question I need to settle tonight, but I'm not sure I need to go on that ride again. I also find myself a shade leery of the industry's need to build a franchise out of it. From my perspective, the theme being "Ya know, guy, you just shouldn't have; look at everything that went wrong," in short, there shouldn't be a sequel to a movie whose curtain line is, "After careful consideration, I have decided not to endorse your park." But the industry is what it is."
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on November 27, 2022, 07:55:51 PMI did watch the Return to J.P. suite of featurettes, which opened with Spielberg saying he wasn't making a horror movie. Yet it more or less felt like that. I get that the "reveal" of the brachiosaur is majestic and beautiful, and that when they've fled to the treetop, they hear the brachiosaurs singing, but ... the kids in the kitchen, e.g.Overall, though, the featurettes did a great job of illustrating the puppeteering tour-de-force of the endeavor. Also fun to learn that Goldblum's heroic turn in distracting the Tyrannosaur was the actor's idea.I re-watched High Noon as a chaser.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 28, 2022, 02:01:54 AMI understand what you mean. Thanks for sharing a bit about the extras. And well done Mr. Goldblum! By the way, did you know that he loves jazz and put out an album? And, of yeah, it hit number one on the Billboard's Jazz Album chart too. PD
