Re: "Reframed: Classic Films in the Rearview Mirror" on TCM

On twitter, they said you could see the segments on "Watch TCM" which I assume is the name of their app.

Re: Coming 2 America (2021, D: Craig Brewer) S: Eddie Murphy

The original is a terrific movie. Great characters, a well-told story. There isn't a boring moment in it, and that's something you can't say about a lot movies (like the new one, for example).

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

On the laserdisc commentary, either the writer or Bryan Singer shares a hilarious story about the film's premier (at TIFF I believe), saying that after the ending reveal, some old guy stood up and...

Re: Coming 2 America (2021, D: Craig Brewer) S: Eddie Murphy

Well, it's watchable, there's a few funny moments, but honestly I only enjoyed it for the callbacks (look it's Louis Anderson! The Soul Glow poster is still on the barber shop wall), so they might as...

Re: WandaVision (S1E09) - ďThe Series FinaleĒ - 3/5/21

I didn't think so. One of the most obnoxious things I've seen in a movie in ages was the end of this when the agent tells Wanda, "They'll never know what you sacrificed for them," like the town...

Re: "Reframed: Classic Films in the Rearview Mirror" on TCM

My first thought about Psycho was that it was problematic for stigmatizing mental illness. As my favourite movie, I thank God they didn't cast Andy Rooney in a small part for some comic relief.

Re: Coming 2 America (2021, D: Craig Brewer) S: Eddie Murphy

Watched the original for the first time in at least twenty years the other day, impressed with how well it holds up. One of the better movies of its era.

I was also struck by how gentle of a movie...

Re: It's kind of a miracle that Back To The Future hasn't been remade or given a sequel.

I agree. When the DVDs came out in 2000 or whatever, it had probably been ten or so years since I saw the first one, and was struck by how it seemed to have escaped the stamp of the era it was made...

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

There's a few good moments in Caddyshack, but other than that, you're right.

I'll also grab this excuse to bring up this hilariously horrible group interview of the cast :lol:

Re: Popular Movies You Havenít Seen In Full

I can knock Casablanca off my list as I got the chance to watch it yesterday. I recognize it's a good movie, but one I saw way too late. Having been fed every notable moment over the course of my...

Re: Trailers: How Much is Too Much and Do Studios Care?

Of course they think it's fine. I've heard Zemeckis defend the Cast Away/What Lies Beneath trailers by stating "according to studio research" most people are more willing to see a movie where they...

Re: I Care a Lot (2021, D: Blakeson) S: Pike, Dinklage, GonzŠlez, Wiest, Messina

What appealed to me (specifically about the first hour of the movie) is the storytelling. People don't have to be likeable if the story is interesting (Goodfellas).

While I wasn't rooting for a...

Correct, there's nothing wrong with the composition, it's the ridiculous synthesizers playing it.

Re: I think...Who do you think should make a movie together?

I'f really love to see Mia Farrow work with Woody Allen again. It's been too long.

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

The only kind of George-Lucas-esque movie revision I could get behind is putting a new musical score on The Princess Bride. I only saw the movie as a kid, because when I tried re-watching it on...

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

I don't get Vertigo, and am baffled by it seeming to have replaced Citizen Kane in those critic polls of Greatest Movie Of All Time.

I've seen the movie about three times over the years (as a...

Re: 78th Golden Globe Awards Movie Nominations/Discussions

Re: I Care a Lot (2021, D: Blakeson) S: Pike, Dinklage, GonzŠlez, Wiest, Messina

Re: TCM Underground Movies

I'm more curious how the 14th highest grossing movie of its year of release (higher than that year's James Bond and Star Trek movies) is "Underground".

Re: I'm Your Woman (2020, W/D: Julia Hart) S: Rachel Brosnahan

Re: Being The Ricardos (W/D: Sorkin) S: Kidman, Bardem

When I think of Fred, I think first of his gruff voice, which is the sort of thing Simmons does well. With some padding to fatten him up I can see him as William Fawley.
