Ready Player One. That's such a fucking good movie. Watch it three times already now - originally in the cinema and now twice at home. I really think it's one of the best movies to come out in the past few years. And the special effects are just jaw dropping really.

Have you read the book? If you haven’t, you definitely should. It lets you appreciate so many more little details, even if the story is actually quite different.

I didn't. But I do plan on it when I have some time. I did read reviews of people saying that it's actually a really good adaptation of the book and a really bad adaptation :lol: . Though seeing how the original author was heavily involved in making of the movie I kind of don't see the point of people complaining.

The book is a much more in depth and complex story, it could’ve never been translated directly over. But the book is definitely better. You’d be surprised at what parts of the film don’t exist at all in the book though.

Yeah, it was beautifully done and very moving. :3

I'd had a movie date planned with my grandmother to watch this; she didn't end up making it out of the hospital to watch it, but I saw a lot of her in Coco. By the end I'd lost my contact lenses and just wanted to be alone for a while. It was an excellent movie.

Also, I agree with you on the narrator.

Watching Double Harness

This was the film that started my journey and love for classic film. It has William Powell in it! :D

Looks like I’m having a classic film marathon. :)

So far it’s been:

The Three Weird Sisters
Bells Of St. Marys
Man Of The World now

Oh specs i love some of the classic movie's too. :keke:



Love Gilda.

Obviously this is a documentary. I really enjoy documentaries but it's probably not for everyone.

I liked it. It wasn't great but pretty good and worth watching it. It's awfully depressing. Considering its about a comedian. It's kinda strange because Gilda Radnor is the narrator. She was keeping a voice diary as well as a written one. Plenty of other Saturday night live alumni are commentators.

I didn't know much about her besides she was one of the original snl cast members and died very young. So i went in not expecting much. And i enjoyed it.

Now there's a Robin Williams one that i plan on watching. I got a feeling that ones gonna be alot closer to me but i guess ill find out.

Ahhh! Gilda always made me laugh. :lol: she had such talent. Gone at such a young age :(

Well I’m happy to see a classic film lover. If you noticed my current profile is based on the 1960 Billy Wilder classic The Apartment.

Never have I seen such a film that could be so easily related too.

Speaking of classic film. I really miss Robert Osborne hosting TCM. He was classy and was always and only about the films.

I don’t particularly care for Ben Mankowitz :/

Anyway a few other favorites are:

The Major and the Minor
The Thin Man series (I have a crush on William Powell)
Casablanca
Double Indemnity
The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly
Valdez Is Coming
Gone With The Wind
Stella Dallas
It Happened on 5th Avenue
The Apartment
Some Like It Hot

And a ton of others I’m forgetting at the moment.
I mostly watch late 20s to late 50s films. WW2 era are by far my favorite along with Pre-Code Hollywood era.
As cliche as it is to say. In my opinion they don’t make em like they used too. I have a very difficult time with new movies.

I'll admit that I'm not as big a fan as you. :keke: i tend to focus more on the film noir, horror, and crime dramas.

Out of the ones you've mentioned I've seen Casablanca, the good the bad and the ugly, the apartment, and some like it hot. But my favorites are things like Rebecca (the original) scarface, the Maltese falcon, vertigo, psycho, 12 angry men,to kill a mockingbird . And a bunch of others. Lol

Rebecca is one of my favorites. It's an Alfred Hitchcock film but a suspense film and actually won best picture at the Oscar's

I did love Robert Osbourne hosting the tcm channel. I will say that i enjoy newer movie's to. I for sure watch movies from the last 50 year's much more. But its always nice to see the classics.

You know the set of the movie cleopatra was all made by hand. The entire set was replicas of the original egyptian artifacts. I just love hearing things like that. :keke: theres a reason it's considered one of the most expensive movie ever made. I seen an article that said it's falling apart but the film institute are trying to save and restore it. I hope they can

:keke: :heart: I love your film choices. Rebecca was amazing! I know why you like it so much you handsome devil ;)
it’s becuase Laurence Olivier!
:lol: I kid but the plot twist took my breath away.

The more I get to know you Simple_Man the more and more I like you :)
You enjoy film noir! Film noir! I don’t even know folks who watch those.

As for Alfred Hitchcock. Well I’ve seen just about all of his major releases. My favorites from him were:

The Lady Vanishes, The Rope, Frenzy.

I had a hard time with his silent films though. God they were soooo boring!!

René and I watched Ready Player One on Sunday. It was pretty good, especially for its genre, but had some silliness and plot inconsistencies that made it a little grating.

Has any one watch a new movie (Mi Mejor Amigo - original name), (My Best Friend - Translated) ? , apparently just had its premier and is quite recent. It is based on a friendship theme (but gay theme).

Idk any Collins but that movie is awful. Lol. I remember when the murder happened. It was at the height of Corrigan's career. Probably made him a bigger name though. Now it's his only claim to fame.
