excellent! Bill Paxton was fab in this!
great movie at the time...
I will do further research into his work for sure. I was really impressed by Cure, without really knowing anything about it beforehand.
Untamed Heart (1993)
Nobody Lives Forever (1946).
Very good film noir/crime drama that I'd never heard of before.
Early on I just kept thinking how incredible Geraldine Fitzgerald was in The Pawnbroker, since I'd just seen that last night; a very effecting performance and role, but had to get it out of my mind.
This was very good.
Spoiler: One thing that bugs me in a film...
When you don't see a shot, a climactic one, actually pointed the person it kills. When it doesn't seem to be even aimed at all in the direction it should be. Oh well, not a big thing in this overall picture, I guess.
Bill & Ted Face The Music.
While I'm laid up with a bad back, I've watched a few things over the last few days.
Yesterday I watched Demolition Man which was way more funny than I remembered. Snipes was a joy in this.
Then I watched The Godfather which is always magnificent. Just fired up Godfather 2.
The Shop Around The Corner (1940)
I never saw What's Up Doc all the way through. Laughed all the way through.
Sleepless In Seattle
Not sure how you enjoyed it, but another timeless classic for me from Nora Ephron. Meg Ryan was definitely the "it" girl in the hey-day of the late 80s/90s Romcom era. Roger Ebert summed up this film well: the film was “as ephemeral as a talk show, as contrived as the late show, and yet so warm and gentle I smiled the whole way through.”
A great soundtrack and so many great and memorable lines...
Co-worker: “It’s easier to be killed by a terrorist than it is to find a husband over the age of 40.”
Annie: “That statistic is not true.”
Becky: “That’s right, it’s not true. But it feels true.”
My mom and I are watching it on Netflix right now.
Horses, horses, horses, horses.... ding-aling-a-ling!
"Death Wish"- The 2018 remake: It was better than I was expecting it to be.
Mallrats (tv cut)
Double Indemnity (1944) - IMO Fred MacMurray is one of the most underrated actors. A year after this he shined in "Murder He Says."
This On TCM Today.
And Now Dead Of Night. Oh Boy!
I agree... I've watched it more than twice...Bruce was excellent...
Target Number One (released as Most Wanted in the US).
The tv series (was it "Father Knows best?") destroyed what was otherwise a great career. One of the worst shows of it's time period, & really popular.
Probably my all time fav low budget film.
