I dont mind predictability as carelessness with suspension of disbelief. But i cant get passed that stuff, probably my own problem.

As a chick I get a little hot for The Long Hot Summer which is where he hooked up with his wife to be, Joanne Woodward...a bit corny sometimes, but loved it. Paul Newman is/was so wonderful. Tom Cruise wishes he was that cool, but does not measure up. Though I did enjoy The Color of Money that paired them up, The Hustler was better.

Having said that, there are a lot of Paul Newman movies I still need to see..
Slapshot, The Verdict, The Absence of Malice and probably a few others.

Saw ButchCATSDK excellent movie. I forgot westerns. I've seen most of the major westerns because of a project I worked on a while back.

I agree with you on the bolded movies. I, Robot was OK, but I Am Legend was the one of the worst movies I've ever seen...

Cool. Any you'd recommend? I am not a huge western fan, but there are a few. I finally got around to all those Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns, but not my favorite, okay, but maybe westerns are not my thing. I still haven't seen the one based on the Seven Samurai, uh, the Magnificent Seven.

I never saw Behind the Green Door, but I heard it was a classic.

Seriously, though not really a western, the Yearling is on tv tommorrow. It's a classic, but I can't take the end. (no spoiler alert)

I know i will get heat for this, but haven't seen reservoir dogs. Actually don't care for any Tarantino movies for the over the top acting, blood and violence. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind blood and violence (Blackhawk down, Gladiator)... it just has to be somewhat real.

Oh my gawd, I don't like Tarantino much either. I always thought he was overrated. The only one I will watch more than once strangely is Reservoir Dogs. I walked out the first time from the theater because I was horrified at one point, but eventually saw it all the way through and it is one of the few I think that embodies the spirit of the 50s pulp novels and noir that he "borrows" from so heavily. Then he just gets so full of himself I want to punch him. Also he cannot act and must stop appearing in films, unless it is just so I can watch him die, like Paris Hilton.

Magnificent Seven is good.. I would watch classics like True Grit, Outlaw Josey Wales.

I saw it. It was ok so long as you took it as sort of a morality play exploring loyalties of bad people, including a cop. I would be ok with none of his movies, though.

ps, I liked the Jeff Bridges one a whole lot better. I dialed it up one night when the kid was out, and my wife actually enjoyed it.

I liked Wayne in the Searchers (five stars imo) the first Stagecoach and Hondo, and the John Ford cavalry flicks.

For those of you who haven't seen Star Wars....I present you:



Huge fan made film. It's pretty awesome when you realized every 15 seconds of the film was made by a different fan.

Watch it! You wont be disappointed. Funny as hell too!!!

it is from Pulp Fiction, but I just thought it was funny. I go for the laugh regardless of where it comes from. My last please b**** was wonder woman. I saw Kill Bill because to be honest my ex loved Tarantino and I have a tendancy to cave to the boyfriends. I am kind of a dumbass in that way (and others too I am sure).

I haven't seen anything made before the 80's. The only movie made before 1980 that I know I have watched is Reefer Madness. There may be others but none that were mentioned in this thread.

This weekend I found out that none of my friends have even heard of Twelve Monkies. It isn't an all time great or anything, but I was surprised to learn that. I like that movie.

I enjoyed the over the top violence of the Kill Bill movies. That was the point, I thought. Revenge flicks are not going to be bloodless.

After not watching it for over a year, I watched Avatar the other night and kept rolling my eyes every five minutes. Stupid effing movie.

really... i actually watched Jeff Bridges version before watching the John Wayne version. I always like movies with good ending and a "feel-good" mood to it.

Here some good movies I want to see:

Casablanca
Spellbound
Miracle on 34th Street
Ivanhoe
Cleopatra
Vertigo
Blade Runner
to kill a mockingbird

Casablanca didn't have Bacall. (-:

I may not have seen Spellbound. Or I may have seen it during the two decades I cannot recall.

I can't do holiday movies unless they're parodies like Natl Lampoon Christmas; Bad Santa ..... Olive the Other Reindeer is by the soutpark guys and drew barrymore does the voice over. Funny and very sweet.

I saw Ivanhoe in black and white when I was like 8 on tv at my grandmother's. Loved it. Cleopatra is epic. I liked blade runner. I hate molly coddling Northen Yankee Bastard Liberals telling us we CAINT LIVE FREE, but Harper Lee is a southern girl and she worked for Capote. Mockingbird is probably the best movie I've ever seen. I called my daughter Little Boo until she started asking why.

btw, the movie Capote is really amazing ... but sad. In Cold Blood ruined the man's life.

I recall seeing El Cid on color TV and really liking it. You can't beat Heston for movies like that. If I can actually remember anything that far back, it had to be really good. But I think the historical revisionism got in my way because assuming there were good and bad guys back then, the Christians weren't the good-uns.

With Ivanhoe at least there was the good christian knight fighting to save the chastity of the beautiful Jew ... so he could ravish her for himself. lol

Neil Schon has been moved to one of my top three guitar players. Be very careful on where you go from here. I also think he may be the most underrated player of all time. Now back to movie talk .
