La Terra Trema (1948) Nice little story about a family's struggle against the odds. 7/10

A Cold Wind In August (1961) Lola Albright stars, she was a regular on the TV show "Peter Gunn" She plays a stripper without out any of the tired cliches that usually go with stripper characters which was refreshing. She never strips where she lives and she lives in New York in a good apartment and she seduces Scott Marlowe who plays a virginal 17-year-old kid who ends up having an an affair with her not knowing anything about her professional life. Scott playing an Italian boy Vito manages to be pretty annoying he does these awkward dopey head movements trying to project the image of a teenage virgin.  Ms. Albright is pretty good in her role. She accepts a job in Newark across the river from one of her old bosses who is in a jam when his headliner gets pregnant, with the predictable results that Vito is going to her about it from his peers. I give it a 7/10 it keeps you watching because you know you are going to see Alright do her stuff on the stage, but it of course disappointments in the long run because that particular segment doesn't show enough and cops out by focusing more on Vito's reaction to seeing his first real girlfriend showing everything he's got to his buddies and the rest of the world. 

It just doesn't compute for me.  Now if I had happened to be Vito, I would have turned it into a real machismo moment, to save face, basically I would have puffed out my chest and said while you guys are pulling your puds I'm doing THAT, eat shit and die assholes.  7/10 could have been higher if more explicit.

The Young Lions (1958) - ?/10

I barely made it through the first 20 minutes or so - boring as hell. Considering it's nearly 3 hours long I ask anyone that watched it: is it worth the trouble?

I've seen it a couple of times and remember liking it.
Mind you, I don't remember it being that long, but then I've not seen it in years.

Thanks, but you didn't convince me - I need something stronger! Cheesy

Play Misty for Me (1971) It could have been very good but for two elements: it is 20 minutes too long and Eastwood doesn't work as the male lead. And he doesn't work because it takes him the whole movie to do what you'd expect him to do at the start of his troubles. Still it has merits, the foremost being the Oscar nomination (at least) performance of Jessica Walter. I don't think she was taken into consideration, being this the first Eastwood directed movie, at the time, but still her performance is brilliant from start to finish. And she's also very attractive. 7\10

You like 'em more carnal, eh titoli? Cool

I'm rather unpicky, even at my age. It's just I never felt attracted by her. On the screen, of course. Maybe if I had met her in person it could have been a different matter.

I have always found her so.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Tried to watch The Longest Day only to find myself on the receiving end of yet another defective Carnegie disc! Come on guys, that's the fourth in two weeks. Angry

Jaws 2 (1978)
- pushing for a 6/10

Not the greatest sequel ever made but I wasn't bored, at all.

I always though Claudia Cardinale was an attractive woman, but in a strange way. I don't know how to explain it, she perhaps lacked that raw element in her younger days. I believe the correct term would be - gnocc(on)a. She was not one.

The Pit and the Pendulum (1991) - 6.6/10

I think it's a fair re-imagination of a few Edgar Allan Poe's stories put together, plus a little bit of something else thrown in from both sides. The special elements are mostly good; even extraordinary in a couple of occasions. Lance Henriksen leads the mostly unknown cast in splendid fashion, and Oliver Reed shows up for a very few minutes, Benito Stefanelli plays the executioner, though you can't see his face cause he wears a mask.

Oh, no, not another ZARDOZ fan!!!  Shocked

I haven't seen that one, although it doesn't seem like there's any reason I should.

However, you also have Marnie, The Wind and the Lion, Murder on the Orient Express, A Bridge Too Far, The Name of the Rose, The Hunt For Red October and The Untouchables. All good films IMO, perhaps even a few great ones. He's had his share of stinkers but that's not a bad CV.
