Oh don't get me wrong: you'd be a terrific movie, but you are a horrible person  >:D

You?d prefer a bad movie, as long as it were opposed to fossil fuels.

Regal Cinemas is closing 39 theaters, including the one in Union Square in NYC

I have been to that theater many times. When it first opened, I was in 9th grade (1998) ? I don?t think it was Regal then, if I recall correctly it may have been United Artists ? I saw ads in the newspaper for it, I used to cut school and go there. Good times!

Full list of closures below

I'm writing from year 2023 and I'm really glad how swiftly and efficiently we've moved on this issue.

I don?t think this site has an admin right now. The lunatics are running the asylum.

I might be able to do a night showing

General Discussion / Re: Changes in dialogue from Spanish dubbing
« on: January 16, 2023, 01:16:04 PM »
I know they might've done changes here and there for all the dubbed versions of the films out there, and maybe you've heard of this before, but there are many changes made to the dialogue in the Spanish version of the Dollars trilogy, and some I find particularly interesting.
For example, in the final scene of GBU:

Tuco notices the rope
Tuco: You're joking, right, Blondie? You want to play a joke on me.
Blondie: It's a noose, not a joke. Come on, put it around your neck, Tuco.

Blondie grabs the bags of gold
Blondie: Just like old times. Half for you and half for me.
Tuco: Blondie!
Blondie: Sorry.
Tuco: Come back here!

And for the rest of the scene instead of yelling "Blondie" he yells "Come back". The majority of this is done to fit the language and the lip movements of the speaker, of course. But one thing I noticed is they like to add mentions of characters' names, I don't think it works so well, especially with Clint, makes him sound a little more educated than he really is. An example from FAFDM:

Manco hands over his belt to Mortimer
Manco: Colonel, try with this.
Looks at Indio
Manco: Indio, you already know the game.

Links to the dubbed scenes I'm talking about:

thanks for the info, interesting stuff.

as you indicate, it might not be wise to read too much into it, as it may have been done just to match the lip movements, but the "come back!" at the end is perhaps a reference to Shane.

FOD is fantastic, demonstrating what a great auteur can do on a shoestring budget. I disagree with n l on its rewatchability. It's still a lot of fun. Not as good as FAFDM, but I can't watch it entirely.

DYS is unquestionably the poorest of the six. Last on a list of six of the best movies ever made is still not a horrible place to be. dash subzero

Would love to see this double bill on the big screen

The Searchers (1956) - Maybe the greatest movie ever made, and certainly one of my all time favorites that somehow gets better with each viewing. Pure artistry. A++

Hardcore (1979) - Much better on an additional view, and a perfect blend of character study and quasi detective yarn. The time capsule element of the late 70's SD, SF and LA underworld really adds extra flavor, as does the phenomenal score. George C. Scott and Season Hubley have excellent chemistry, and Peter Boyle is always great. This is a rare bleak, dark movie with a ton of soul. A

I find The Searchers overrated and I shut off Hardcore halfway through.

Former Pope Benedict died. It?s a good time to watch the Netflix movie THE TWO POPES, about Francis taking over from Benedict, and extensive conversations between the two (Jonathan Pryce playing Francis, Anthony Hopkins playing Benedict.) I saw the movie a while ago, I think I gave it like a 7.5/10

p.s. every one of my Catholic friends says they dislike Francis, for whom global warming seems to be more important than traditional morality. But I assume n_l is a deeply religious Catholic these days.

My only hope about Avatar 2 is that by reviving this thread we have a 0,000000001% chance of getting Groggy back.

I emailed him a link to this post ....

Third viewing (and it's actually 1964). Maybe this could go a "9." It does have one negative, a tendency in the narrator toward self-pity. The use of Satie on the soundtrack is effective--and still not a cliche in 1963 (the year of production). I think Malle as a director was largely a fraud; but this film does exist. The source novel, obviously, was a big help.

Au Revoir Les Enfants is a terrific movie
