Hmm, I did not care much for Gibson, an actor I don't care for rarely, but here he was ok, and better than in the first MM.

This Lord Humbug was not bad, but I did not care for him either. That we never see his face or come to know why his head is pulsating was a good idea. But it does not turn him in a good villain, therefore he is too uncharismatic and too one-dimensional. (Maybe he would have worked better in 3-D)

Then I did not care much for the cars, nor for the costumes. They were ok I think, but not really my cup of tea.

The kid was good and the eggbeater pilot also.

But I edited my post, cause I don't want to be a slanderer.

Haha. Yeah the score is terrible. I always forget about it and then it hits hard every time I launch the DVD Wink

RRpower is too young to remember how Western films are made so I'm not even answering him
Dave Jenkins?! how did you get on noodles' account?

Mad Max: Fury Road - 7.5/10
Like Road Warrior with the style maximized and the heart bumped up a bit, but not to a distracting level. Probably still a little too long but I really appreciate it's craft.

Roy, you seem polite, I suspect your rates would have been around 1.5 point  lower if only you didn't announce how much you wanted to see the original MM movies. Cheesy So let me alleviate your pain: they are cult classics, but they are far from great movies. Smiley

Definitely too many.
But here is something about these movies: they're loved first and mainly for their universe/set design. If you just think the costumes, props and sets of MM2 are ok/well done but don't feel the love for this steampunk stuff, you will never love a Mad Max movie. It just strikes something in me (and I'm not a cars or motorcycles guy), while you all probably live in a very dark place and are sad people but that's none of my business. Go on criticizing Little Big Man and When Eagles Dare while I'm busy being happy.

Not probably - definitely.

We ALL live in a place like that my friend, and it's much worse than the romantic exaggerated world of MM. It's just that, some of us - like you - are much easier to fool. For which I envy you. Smiley

Of course you do. I own a winchester repliqua.

Cleopatra - 2/10 - Probably the longest bad movie ever made. The filmmakers try mixing Shakespeare and Shaw's Cleopatra plays while removing the former's language and the latter's intricate characterizations. What's left is four hours of tedium weighed down by ponderous spectacle. Liz Taylor is really pretty but pretty terrible; Richard Burton is stuck in declamatory ham mode. All the worthwhile stuff involves Rex Harrison as Caesar; once he dies (about 90 minutes in) the picture loses any interest.

You must mean Where Eagles Dare

I liked that movie (though if the Germans were such bad shots, I have no idea how they managed to do away with 20 million people).

Yep, sorry, I often make the mistake because of the French title: Quand les Aigles attaquent" (when eagles attack).

They just tried to shoot Richard Burton 20 million times. It was all lost bullets.

That's why Where Eagles Bore is such an idiotic film: no one who is really sober tries to shoot Dick Burton. With such an insane premise a film is hopelessly muddled from the beginning on.

Funny story about that shoot of Where Eagles Dare (I don't recall where I read it): Burton would often knock back a drink or three during the shoot. So when they are by the scene where Burton & Eastwood are setting the explosive booby trap on the road, Burton was pretty trashed, but Brian Hutton figures, hey, Burton can just get out of the car and set the explosive (just a stick of balsa wood, of course), no big deal, right?

So Hutton tells Burton: Okay, now you get out of the car, you set the explosive, and then you run back into the car.
So Burton replies: I don't handle explosives.
So Hutton tries explaining that it's not real explosives, just balsa wood painted to look like explosives, but Burton was having none of it. Refused to touch it.

So a little while later, Hutton walks over to Burton and says: Okay, so now we are going to do a scene: you walk out of the car, set the balsa wood, and then go back into the car.
Burton had no problem doing that.

Dude, when you are sober, would you shoot Burton? He was a cool guy. Nazis are still human beings. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.
Also, don't forget it was established early in the movie that most of the german soldiers spend their time drinking beer at the restaurant outside of the castle.
