Excellent film. And a terrific performance by Edwards.
This is a good one. Hard boiled as hell and not a wasted minute.
Major League (1989, David S. Ward)
Much as I like Baseball movies I've never seen this one. No excuse now, I guess. Hear it's funny.
Is Le Orem worth watching? I used to love giallos.
Addams Family Values (1993)
Vanishing Act (1986) Mike Farrell, Elliott Gould, Margot Kidder, Fred Gwynne - YouTube
These look like they might be new freebies too:
That Thing You Do!
Up in Smoke
Return to Me
All About Steve
Step Up 3
Men at Work
A Good Year
i think it's worth a watch, it wasn't good enough to persuade me to collect it though. Florinda Balkan is always a good watch for me and it has Klaus Kinski. It moves pretty slow and is not a slasher filled giallo. The copy I saw was not great picture wise. I'd bet a blu would show some good cinematography.
"Special Bulletin" a tv movie about Terrorists threatening Charleston SC with a nuclear bomb. that doesn't pull any punches when it comes to the news media. Which is even more news media-y now.
Though that's not the point of the movie, it's fairly eviscerating. Especially the 'parade' of experts talking out of their ass. Or not. You really don't know who to believe, which sets up some real tension.
Ed Flanders does a great acting as a anchorman whose backed into a corner on air.
I see more new ones popping up. Never saw The Love Guru, so I'll check it out and see if it's as bad as people say.
The Love Guru
The Great Train Robbery
The Battle Of Britain (1969)
The World's Fastest Indian
Yeah, they seem to pop up more frequently now. Thanks.
Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1950, Gordon Douglas)
Jimmy Cagney flick adapted from the Horace McCoy novel. Cagney breaks out of jail and does his Cagney thing.
More noir than White Heat, so they say. My first viewing. Looks great.
The Saint (1997)
Queued! Isn't this the one that put Kilmer on the map, so to speak? Or was that Top Gun?
Behind The Scenes (1916, Charles Chaplin)
The Learning Tree by Gordon Parks, sort of a family movie, though is about prejudice in Kansas in the 20s. Soon to be out on the Criterion collection, so see it before YT yanks it.
Can you leave a link? Is it unlisted? I didn't see any copies worth watching. Thanks.
They may have already yanked The Learning Tree upload, which I just saw last week, but there's this one:
Ooo. Yeah, that looks... rough. A good copy's hard to find! Never watched it though I've been meaning to for years. The Criterion Channel had a nice copy up for a minute during their Gordon Parks retrospective.
This one's the best I could find. Check it out later. Thanks.
Needed to watch a flick while I workout and heard this was (more or less) a Bruce Lee Chinese Connection remake. First watch for me. Jet Li joint. Some say it's his best.
Fist of Legend (1994, Gordon Chan)
The Skeleton of Mrs. Morales (1960, Rogelio A. González)
I’m a big champion of this one. Great light horror Mexican flick about a taxidermist who does in his harpy wife. YouTube vid has good English subs. Looks great, too.
Steppenwolf, the 1974 adaptation of the Herman Hesse novel starring Max Von Sydow and Dominique Sanda. I saw this as a midnight movie back then and it definitely made an impression. I recently researched it and it does look a little dated but at the time it was considered cutting edge.
Incubus from 1966 starring William Shatner. Filmed in Esperanto but it does have subtitles
Shorts, of course. And not just the ones you would have never had the chance to see on television, at the cinema or even available in a catalogue or a video store or a film distributor.
You look at all these features loaded-up by YouTube to make up for what their original business plan failed to bring them. People used the platform instead for *gasp* original words of modern creativity, rather than trying to break into the industries where the establishment already has their thumb on the scales. You have to know somebody just to write a script. But you can put a camera on yourself, and find the tools and utilities you need to make a convincing show of your idea on your own, and bam, you're a "creator".
I've been watching a lot of SF shorts this weekend under the "DUST"company/studio/whatever. I've been watching video musicians doing things you never see the establishment players tackle. I've been watching production artists turn 1890's film into something astonishing, bringing animated life to statues, and freeing sounds from the shackles of their original masters by finding more information inside of them. I've been following observers of volcanoes, earthquakes and other physical disasters, who can send a drone into a sea of lava, or alert you to where the tectonic plates are shifting, or where our weather is coming from in a way the local guy doesn't do.
I don't need any more old movies. We've had decades of old movies, and all the chances in the world to see old movies. Give me an old movie on YouTube, and I'll show you something I could have chosen to watch many times in the past...but instead, I can show you something you've never seen before, because...somebody with creativity and a desire to create now, is doing it now.
