I'm with you on that one ... except I don't watch the DVD either.
That made me laugh.. I do that too. But I actually have a week between when my seemster ended and until the kids' camp ends, one week of true vacation. And I was thinking I wanted to see a movie. So if I remember to, I will drop by the video store and borrow a DVD. Or maybe my library has something new since the last time I looked, which was about half a year ago.
I finally watched The Great Dictator today.
The Chaplin film classic to which a lot of people refer, but rarely does anyone see it.
Very well made film. I rather enjoyed watching it.
It's a talkie, believe it or not, but the emphasis is still on the physical humor.
The speech he gives at the very end, when the barber is mistaken for the dictator and finds himself giving a speech in front of all his countrymen, is remarkable, but too long to quote here.
So many amusing scenes. Like when the dictator is playing with the world-balloon.
Husband and I went with friends to see "pretty persuasion."
It was interesting, but it was a bit too much of a mind-f**k for me.
Plus my husband is shy. there were a lot of fairly blatant sex scenes and he felt uncomfortable with them (though there wasn't real nudity)
For example, there's a scene where a guy's hands are in his boxers and he's phone-sexing someone, plus a few scenes where people seem to be receiving oral sex.
overall rating - okay movie, not worth the $7.5
This weekend, I watched Chaplin's _Limelight_.
Not a comedy, although it has comedic elements to it.
It's still brilliant, though. Very nice drama. I would characterize this as a tragedy in feeling, although it doesn't necessary end badly (depending on your perspective). It's certainly a complex movie with a lot of sub-plots to follow, all weaving together nicely.
And very poignant. One gets the feeling the movie is rather personal.
Subject: Superman Returns
I believe you.
Has anyone seen "La Moustache"?
there's an inundation of the special addition with all of the cgi added crap, but as I hear it the original 3 moveies will be released on dvd sept 12, but you'd think amazon would be selling preorders.
Anybody know where I Can find this or what it might be called?
Um... did someone re-release Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or is there a new version of this movie out now?
I see an advert for it on the side of a Metro bus.
I'm not intending to see it, either way, but am simply curious.
I did some poking around on amazon, but I didn't get very far. Here's something off of the official site:
I'm going to do some poking around with one of the media catalogers tomorrow because I know he's been pissed about this for a while. He's a nerd and almost certainly knows where to find this item.
Ginger and I would like to buy the 3 recently released Star Wars DVD's.
BTW - What is the difference between "full screen" and "wide screen" ??
We have an older TV (tube, not LCD or plasma).
Definately on my list of cool movies.
Thanks, Ig. So with our old tube, we want "Full Screen". Much appreciated.
