The Human Condition 1961
Director: Masaki Kobayashi
Actors: Tatsuya Nakadai, Michiyo Aratama, Kokinji Katsura, Jun Tatara, Michirô Minami
I watched Mysterious Island on BD. The PQ was very natural looking. It didn't look like they removed much, if any, grain. The film is nostalgic and mildly amusing for me.
one of my favorites when I was a youngster...always watched it when it showed up on TV back then...
starting some Christmas movies...watched The Family Man...Love this movie... one the most beautiful soundtracks...
Attention, last night's film was Stripes on BD. It's one of the 80's funnier films if you ask me but you can't ask me that soldier because it's an order. I could watch it again tonight...
You Rachael Bee... you are our big toe.
....either that or I'm a rat's head in your Coke bottle...?
Same here. This past weekend we watched the Finnish film "Christmas Story" that was filmed in the Lapland region of Finland. It's a gorgeous and authentic-looking telling of the humble origins of Father Christmas. There are some issues with the English dubbing, but all the good far outweighs those quibbles.
A holiday film with an engaging story and no commercialism--I'm all for that.
That sounds great!
I'll have to look that one up...my wife and I are setting a goal to watch a Christmas movie per night from the end of November till the end of December...problem is I have too many! Geez...got to stop buying Christmas movies!
We rented it from the local library.
Here is the Amazon link so you'll know what to look for, or if you want any more info about it.
I'm watching "Queen of Spades" over a period of nights in dribs and drabs. (Maybe I just don't want it to be over.) Anyway, waiting for a nice cold snowy night, with a bottle of vodka at my elbow to view it uninterrupted. I wish this was on BR.
The Lincoln Lawyer
Two big for this excellent Blu-ray!
Bad Boys the original one with Sean Penn, a little cheesy.
Watched Election with Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick. I always liked this one.
Visitor Q+ (2002)
Director: Takashi Miike
Actors: Ken'ichi Endô, Shungiku Uchida,Jun Mutô, Fujiko, Shôko Nakahara, and Kazushi Watanabe
I saw PROM. Coach Taylor's daughter starred in it. Wasn't bad.
I Love You, Phillip Morris. Just okay. Based on a true story, I think it had lots of potential but the movie was all over the place.
Tragedy of Japan 1953
Director: Keisuke Kinoshita
Actors: Keiko Awaji, Yoko Katsuragi, Keiji Sada, Yuko Mochizuki, Ken Uehara
