Off-Topic Discussion / Apologies Guys
« on: June 21, 2009, 12:24:26 PM »
Hi Everyone:

So sorry that I haven't been around for a long time. Work ended up going nuts, done a few cool features though! Then I had some personal things, some amazing, some terrible. And am now chasing a dream and going back to something else that I'm good at. Anyway glad to see that everyone is still going and that Groggy hasn't obliterated the forum. Will try and be around much more and do my job.

Guys, I am very sorry for the fact that I haven't been around much the last couple of weeks. It's not bad news, far from it but there are a few of you here who know why and all I can do is apologise to the ones who don't and add that for the next couple of weeks my appearances here will be very brief but I will try and keep an eye on things when I possibly can. As ever Banjo is doing a great job. If you have any questions/critiscms etc please don't hesitate to pm me. (Oh yes and I'm going back to NY in August wahoo!!!)

Sergio Leone News / DVD Savant Needs You!
« on: April 20, 2007, 04:40:16 AM »
DVD Talk's Savant (Glenn Erickson) wants views on the German Leone's:

I'm reading a significant amount of web talk from very vocal fans of Sergio Leone about the finally-announced R1 releases of Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and Duck, You Sucker and so am investigating the issues for the upcoming reviews. I'd appreciate input from the Leone Devout, especially those who have seen the R2 German releases.

For a while now there seems to be a rash of multiple accounts of which they're should be none. I know there are a few people with Multiple Accounts and no action will be taken at this present time. If however there are any more multiple accounts created after tonight those accounts will be closed and the members dealt with.

Off-Topic Discussion / Greatest Film Musical Themes
« on: March 16, 2007, 07:04:15 PM »
By the greatest musical themes I mean when your out an about in a record shop etc and you here the first few bars and you go, Thats Jaws! And the music basically sums up the whole movie.

Gone With The Wind
The Searchers
The Terminator
Jill's Theme in OUATITW
Vangelis Main Titles For Blade Runner

And many more.

The thread about the the attractive ladies in which my love of classic movies and their stars was laid bare for all to see, I thought we should have a thread detailing some of the great leading men that early Hollywood has left us with.

Here is Part 1 of a list of them and some of their greatest films.

Stand Out Films

In A Lonely Place
The Maltese Falcon
The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre
High Sierra

James Cagney

The Public Enemy
Angels With Dirty Faces
The Roaring Twenties
Yankee Doodle Dandy

Each Dawn I Die

Gary Cooper

Stand Out Films

Sergeant York
High Noon
The Fountainhead
Pride Of The Yankees

Clark Gable

Stand Out Films

It Happened One Night
Gone With The Wind

Cary Grant

Part 2 to come with more great actors. Please if you have any more to add, stand out movies etc post them here.  :)

Web Site Announcements / Sticky
« on: March 12, 2007, 03:44:46 PM »
I've just gone through and did some tidying up and have also on a few theads made them sticky's. These will appear at the top of the discussion list and will have a symbol on the left of a piece of paper with a pin in it. These are just threads that have proved to be very popular and have some very interesting infomation. I hope this cuts down time in finding them and will stop the forming of subjects when it is not necessary. If you have any suggestions in which threads should be made sticky please post them here.

Many Thanks

Other Films / The Classic Western Thread
« on: March 12, 2007, 03:24:18 PM »
I thought that if there was any discussion of classic Hollywood westerns it should have it's own thread so we don't have 100's cropping up. In starting it off I thought that I post all the classic non Italian westerns in my collection and you guys could do the same and also discuss specific films that you love.

My Classic Western Collection

The Big Trail
The Plainsman
Dodge City
They Died With Their Boots On
The Ox-Bow Incident
My Darling Clementine
Tall In The Saddle
Red River
Whisperin' Smith
Winchester '73
Fort Apache
3 Godfathers
She Wore A Yellow Ribbon
Rio Grande
The Searchers
Seagent Rutledge
Cheyanne Autumn
High Noon
Bend Of The River
The Far Country
The Man From Laramie
7 Men From Now
Rio Brave
No Name On The Bullet
The Magnificent Seven
Springfield Rifle
Hang Em High
The Commancheros
North To Alaska
The Undefeated
The Naked Spur
The Cheyanne Social Club
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
The Son's Of Katie Elder
El Doraldo
True Grit
The Shootist
Ride The High Country
The Wild Buch
The Ballad Of Cable Hogue
Pat Garett and Billy The Kid
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Open Range

Admittedly are perhaps a bit too modern to be included in the classic canon. There are quite a few more I would like to own, quite a few not out on DVD yet and should be out soon. My top ten favourites out of that bunch are:

The Wild Bunch
The Searchers
My Darling Clementine
The Naked Spur
The Far Country
High Noon
3 Godfathers
Red River

Whats you guys favourites?
