Off-Topic Discussion / Hello, my old friends!
« on: May 16, 2014, 08:08:01 PM »
I'm sitting here watching "The Grand Duel" and thought about you all. I'm on a bit of a Lee Van Cleef kick lately. I hope all is well. I wanted to stop in and say hello. I'll try to post a bit more often than I have been.

Off-Topic Discussion / Question about a certain Film Score Website?
« on: February 09, 2009, 03:33:46 PM »

I remember there was a website that was talked about within this forum about locating certain Morricone film scores at one time. I'm trying to locate Jerry Goldsmith's score for the film "The Edge" which is out of print. Amazon is trying to sell it for 100 plus dollars and that's just to much. It's a classic score that I would love to own.

Does anyone remember this site?

Off-Topic Discussion / Steve McQueen Biopic in the works
« on: January 14, 2009, 11:18:49 PM »

Producers Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters are working on a Steve McQueen biopic reports Variety.

The project will primarily chronicle McQueen's Hollywood career, which began in 1956 when the Indiana native got his break in the film "Somebody Up There Likes Me".

The pair will produce, along with Brian Oliver and Chuck Rock, based on the Marshall Terrill-penned biography "Portrait of an American Rebel".

It also examines his three marriages, including his stormy relationship with Ali McGraw, as well as his battle against lung cancer and offscreen penchant for motorcycles, fast cars and drugs.

Off-Topic Discussion / Defiance (2008)
« on: January 09, 2009, 03:44:38 PM »

Three Jewish brothers escape from Nazi-occupied Poland into the Belarussian forest, where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavor to build a village in order to protect themselves and others in danger.

Being a fan of director Edward Zwick, I was interested in seeing this before I even viewed the trailer. The man's films have yet to dissapoint me. But, when I seen the trailer, I was even more excited in anticipation. Check this out. Looks to be a great Daniel Craig performance. It's also based on a true story.

With the recent Special Edition Release of the classic western "High Noon", Film Review released their list of best westerns. It's a great list. I don't agree with all of it, but all the films on the list are well-deserving to be present here. Also, there a couple modern day westerns on the list so don't be confused. It's not my list, it's Film Review's.

Here is the list, in the year they were released:

The Covered Wagon (1923)

Stagecoach (1939)

Red River (1948)

They also give a great write up about the 3:10 to Yuma remake. Always makes me smile when I see that because of how naive cigar joe is.  ;)

Off-Topic Discussion / Happy Veterans Day!
« on: November 11, 2008, 04:11:00 PM »

If you see a veteran today, thank them for their sacrafice, courage, and standing up when our nation needed them most. They should all be praised not only today but every single day! We love you!

Off-Topic Discussion / Le Mans (1971)
« on: November 05, 2008, 02:26:45 PM »
Filmed in documentary-style, this movie depicts an auto race during the 70s on the world's hardest endurance course: Le Mans in France. The race goes over 24 hours on 14.5 kilometers of cordoned country road. Every few hours the two drivers per car alternate - but it's still a challenge for concentration and material. In the focus is the duel between the German Erich Stahler (Siegfried Rauch) in Ferrari 512LM and the American Michael Delaney (Steve McQueen) in Gulf Team Porsche 917. Delaney is under extraordinary pressure, because the year before he caused a severe accident, in which his friend Lisa's (Elga Andersen) husband was killed.

"Le Mans" is the ultimate racing flick. It's the most authentic racing film out there and stars in arguably the coolest actor of all-time in Steve McQueen . As most of you know, one of Steve McQueen's passions in life was racing. This was a dream project for him and I'm thankful thank he got it made. The action here is superb and realistic. It's pure racing action.

The film has minimal dialogue and it plays out almost entirely in documentary style. We don't here any uttering of words for the first 45 minutes of the film, yet there's not a boring moment in my opinion. If you're a racing fan, or at least a Steve McQueen fan, this is the film for you.

One word describing this trailer...AWESOME!: I get the chills watching this! God I love McQueen!

Other Films / Gone with the Wind (1939)
« on: October 09, 2008, 12:55:49 PM »

American classic in which a manipulative woman (Vivien Leigh) and a roguish man (Clark Gable) carry on a turbulent love affair in the American south during the Civil War and Reconstruction.

A film that should be talked about here in detail among all us Sergio Leone lovers. It's a film that was among the many favorites of this great director and as most of you know, it was  his long-life ambition to remake it. Now, I'm not for remaking such classics such as "Gone With the Wind" but I gotta admit it would have been interesting to see what Leone would have done with it.

Anyway, this is one of the greatest American films of all-time. An iconic classic that has stood the test of time. The acting, direction, set/costume design, cinematography, and score are all so memorable.

Off-Topic Discussion / JFK (1991)
« on: September 18, 2008, 04:16:35 PM »

A New Orleans DA, Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner) discovers there's more to the Kennedy assassination than the official story.

Oliver Stone's controversial look into the events surrounding the JFK assassination. From a technical standpoint, this film is BRILLIANT. The cinematography and especially the editing are a thing of genius. Whether you agree or disagree about Oliver Stone's conspiracy theory, you must admit that the film is a thing of beauty. I also love John Williams score.

Off-Topic Discussion / Nixon (1995)
« on: September 18, 2008, 04:11:22 PM »

A biographical story of former U.S. president Richard Milhous Nixon, from his days as a young boy to his eventual presidency which ended in shame.

Oliver Stone's controversial account into the life of ex-President Richard M. Nixon. Anthony Hopkins who stars, doesn't much resemble the real man but was able to get down his mannerisms brilliantly. He gives us a great and memorable performance.

What are your thoughts about the film? Do you think it's a fair look at the man or a bit biased? I'd like to know.
