Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

Fair warning: Grave of the Fireflies is one of the saddest movies ever made. I don't watch it until I'm in a mood to handle it. Even so, it's another movie on your list that's one of my favorites.

I wouldn't do a Kurosawa marathon any more than I would do a steak dinner marathon. His movies take a while to digest.

Which Dune? The 1984 David Lynch film or the 2000 SciFi Channel mini-series?

Which version of The Fly? 1958 or 1986?

Which "Indiana Jones?" Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade, or Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

terrycloth - you're watching Raiders of the Lost Ark because you didn't know it's the first film of the franchise. Plus it's a good one...

All the King's Men (1949), while a fairly good character study, was a rather typical political thriller/potboiler. It all felt rather predictable - maybe it wasn't when released but I doubt it. Broderick turned in a good performance with his character meeting a expected end. Since it won "Best Picture" for that year I looked up the competition: Battleground, The Heiress, A Letter to Three Wives, and Twelve O'Clock High. Of those, I've only seen Twelve O'Clock High but feel it's a better film than All the King's Men.

1. Moulin Rouge (1952)
2. Barry Lyndon (1975)
3. Torn Curtain (1966)
4. Kiss Them for Me (1957)
5. Skyfall (2012)
6. OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006)
7. Avanti! (1972)
8. Ninotchka (1939)
9. Prizzi's Honor (1985)
10. Gold Diggers of 1937 (1936)

Films watched:
Spoiler:

42nd Street (1933)
42nd Street was good but not as good as I was expecting. Other than Dick Powell I thought most of the singing was amateurish and uninspired. I'd certainly not put it amongst the top of the Busby Berkeley films. One of the 3 production final numbers, "(I'm) Young and Healthy", was simply laughable. Maybe it was considered great stuff in 1933 but it suffered from incredibly poor lyrics which repeated too often. While I like the song, "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" suffered from a poor tenor (I *hate* "extreme" vibrato in a voice plus his voice didn't fit well with the song), and "42nd Street", another of my favorite songs from that era, had too many scenes which would have been impossible to present on a stage as small as depicted. OK... so it's a musical and you are supposed to forgive such goings on but there are some things I can't let slide. In spite of those issues I still enjoyed the film.

All the King's Men (1949)
All the King's Men (1949), while a farily good character study, was a fairly typical political thriller/potboiler. It all felt rather predictable - maybe it wasn't when released but I doubt it. Broderick turned in a good performance with his character meeting a expected end. Since it won "Best Picture" for that year I looked up the competition: Battleground, The Heiress, A Letter to Three Wives, and Twelve O'Clock High. Of those, I've only seen Twelve O'Clock High but feel it's a better film than All the King's Men.


Question for The Man with the Golden Doujinshi: Do these need to be never-before-seen films or just something from the "unwatched (unopened)" piles? So far I've stuck with the never-before-seen films but the ones in the unopened piles I've seen before outnumber those I've *never* seen by almost 10 to 1.

Ideally they should be films you've never seen before that have been seen by lots of other people/critically acclaimed type stuff. I think it's a little more fun to see that someone has never seen something like Raiders of the Lost Ark because it gives me a kick to try and get my movie done so I can get someone to watch it for the very first time.

On the other hand, I can give a pass to things someone has seen before but has no memories of and watching it isn't going to make them remember it all before they finished. I have the Zatoichi box set and while I know I've seen a few of those films, I couldn't anything that happens in any of them, nor can I name any title other than the first one.

Skyfall for Bob

Big Hero 6 was really good. The villain reminded me of Doctor Octopus. Thanks for the push to watch it.

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

It's a Deadly Harvest for you, Mister Peepers. Mainly because it's the only one in your list I've heard of and am too lazy to use a randomizer to pick another.

Skyfall was a pretty good Bond film. Horrible theme song, but then there are so few truly "good" ones on Bond films anyway, but otherwise I enjoyed the viewing. A couple of times I felt like it was going on just a bit too long because just *how* many times can the villain escape in a single film? Honestly, I really didn't care for the villain but the action sequences were very good and that's a lot of why you watch a Bond film in the first place. The motorcycle race across the rooftops was *far* more believable, and exciting, than the Tumbler version in Batman Begins (a large part of my dislike for that film). I don't know how I feel about what happened with "M" in this one but it felt organic enough I'm not too bothered.

1. Moulin Rouge (1952)
2. Barry Lyndon (1975)
3. Torn Curtain (1966)
4. Kiss Them for Me (1957)
5. El Cid (1961)
6. OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006)
7. Avanti! (1972)

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

I bailed on The Man with the Golden Arm after an hour.

The moral of the story seems to be that if you hang around with the same people when you get out of jail, you'll get hooked on drugs again. I don't want to sit through every bad decision.

I pick torn Curtains. looks up the titles that one tickled my fancy.

Indiana Jones I enjoyed and kept my attention which is no small feat since it was 130am when i finished it. I was most impressed that at two hours it never felt like it was dragging and had quite a bit of humor...seriously a nazi monkey? and a lot more violent then i was expecting! figured they would of cgi'ed the guns out by now!

I've never seen it but had to go with it from the name. I know how those movies can be. It took me 2 days to get through 30 minutes of Birdman. I saw Norton's big early performance, which was good. Seeing how long and hard it was to get through 30 minutes, I have zero desire to ever revisit it again.

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

terrycloth, you should watch Star Wars episode 6 in preparation for the new movie.

BobO'Link happened to pick the one title I owned but didn't know where it was at the time , but I did find A Night at the Opera and enjoyed it. As far as Depression-era comedy goes, I prefer the dancing and Great American Songbook of the Astaire-Rogers musicals, but I liked the humor, especially from the Groucho character (this was my first full Marx Bros. feature). When Astaire took a break from Rogers in a Damsel in Distress, it mixed his usual song-dance with comedy routines from Burns and Allen, which Groucho's repartee reminded me a bit of.

My revised list:

Hello Dolly (1969)
Babes in Arms (1939)
Neptune's Daughter (1949)
Cover Girl (1944)
Funny Girl (1968)
3 Godfathers (1948)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
Nine (2009)
You Were Never Lovelier (1942)
Calamity Jane (1953)

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

I'm almost considering putting Boyhood on my list but that movie sounds like something that would drive me insane with boredom. I thought Waking Life was horribly overrated and reminded me of the ideas someone that took sociology 101 in community college would have if they made a film. Some of the things in it are provably wrong, especially some of the rules of dreaming. I barely liked Before Sunrise and Before Sunset more than Waking Life.

I think I've answered my own question about adding it.

Chungking Express
Unbearable Lightness of Being
Two English Girls (Truffaut)
Girl Shy (Harold Lloyd)

Girl Shy for you! It's always great for me to recommend silent movies.

Human Centipede was a gross out grind house style movie right down to the clichés of a car breaking down on a dark and stormy night and a mad scientist with a lab in his basement.

My updated list:

1. My Winnipeg
2. Massacre Gun
3. The Hunger Games
4. The Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires
5. Advise and Consent
6. The Cars That Ate Paris
7. From Up On Poppy Hill
8. The Good, the Bad and the Weird
9. Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion
10. Things to Come

Deadly Harvest was pretty fun. Made when there was people complaining about global cooling, it tries to warn us by showing us what could happen if we don't do something to warm up the earth.

I love The Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires so very much! I watched it for a horror challenge a couple years ago. Watch for Peter Cushing's ridiculously large pith helmet! I want one!

I've just checking in on everyone's progress since I haven't quite worked up the gumption to watch Grave of the Fireflies. I have a three-day weekend coming up and hope to get to it during that time. The film's reputation as the ultimate tearjerker as well as a sudden crush of graduation festivities has kept me away so far.

Also, are everyone's babysitters okay?

...Enjoy!\

LUCY i enjoyed more then i thought i would. My friends hated it when they saw it and we usually have similar taste in movies. The first hour was exactly what i want from a action movie and was a lot of fun the last 20 minutes or so felt too rushed to me but would watch again.
