"Bulworth" on Indie Channel. R.I.P. TW poet laureate.
Save The Last Dance!
I love all of Julia Styles' movies...
Batman vs Superman
Saw it the other night. Nice, really liked it ... ..except for the end.
Also, saw Tell No One (2006, French) -- really good. Maybe you recommended it.
Currently watching The Sea Inside (Spanish movie) about a man's fight for euthanasia. Very good. Recommended by @Rusty Shackleford IIRC. Javier Bardem.
Do they dub these movies, or do you watch them with subtitles?
The Sea Inside has a subtitle problem. Someone has globally removed "ri" from the entire subtitle file. So right is "ght" and privacy is "pvacy" and trial is "tal" and so forth. After seeing one hour, we closed for the day, and i sat past midnight correcting the spellings, so today we can see the second half properly.
I've got Phoenix (2014). But sadly the only copy of Son of Saul i could find was encrypted/compressed in a rar format. There is file that tells me where i can get the password, but that site asks for my cellphone number so it can charge me for the password. *angry*.
Glad you liked,nah I haven't seen Tell No One
Watched Prince Of The City (1981) - Pretty good,but a bit too long...
Yikes! Sorry about that. You might have wanted to try getting another subtitles file from one of the subtitles sites.
I did get another subtitle but it was slightly off. I do know a site which can adjust all the subtitle times but i thought correcting it would be just as well. Took me about 15 minutes, maybe less.
Then I wonder who recommended it ?
Doesn't your movie software have key shortcuts to adjust the subtitle offset? Both VLC and MPlayer do that.
oh yes, but it is a pain. And what if the rate is also off. That is, some start off fine, but then get faster or slower as time goes by, so you keep adjusting and that's a pain. So it just thought id fix the subs.
I did not put much thought to it, it's not like a one day job that i would have to weigh pros and cons.
edit: i use VLC for Mac.
I'm about to watch Maze Runner : Scorch Trials on Blu-Ray and it's going to be awesome on my new sound system I setup yesterday!!! Woohoo!
Saw Phoenix (2014) a German, holocaust related film. Very interesting, well done.
Dawn Of Justice [Batfleck]
Titanic (1953) - Barbara Stanwyck, Clifton Webb.
Good, much better than the overly melodramatic 1997 version, although don't expect much from the visual effects. Only 97 minutes compared to the 3 hour long 1997 version. The 1997 version had a great tune, though.
One Academy Award for best original screenplay.
Just caught an uncomfortable interview with Yuzuru and rewatched his Sochi 2014 short skate, so good, that's how history will remember him...
Currently watching The Shawshank Redemption (1994).
Seeing it for the second time. Morgan Freeman has always been one of my fave actors.
I accidentally read somewhere that Tom Hanks was offered the role of Andy Dufresne but declined since he was doing Forrest Gump. Tim Robbins got the role. I like Tim Robbins in this.
He was supposed to win the Boston championships on Friday, but tripped all over himself in the free skate and came in second. He seemed pretty broken up about it.
this movie , "Hateful eight" is realy really good......insane good movie
Oh by the way, what kind of poison makes you throw up blood like that ?
"post-Civil War Wyoming," seriously? And Tarantino came up with this garbage?
But is it not the greatest movie ever ever ?
I thought arsenic was a slow killer, dried up the internal organs. I've actually read of some person/people ten years ago or so, who slowly gave arsenic to some old person (father or something) and it goes unnoticed (or can). The person seemingly dies of natural causes, unless an autopsy is done. At least that's what i remember.
yes yes, it is very slow
Would depend on the dosage?
But arsenic can make you vomit blood, which is what I thought the question was all about.
I'm sure any number of corrosive acids could do the trick? I'm not a doctor, though.
(the 1st one, about cycling... not the upcoming one about tennis)
i liked it
i wonder if @Mustard saw/enjoyed it...
Finally saw St. Vincent. Bill Murray is very good and the story is excellent, but the highlight was watching Melissa McCarthy actually acting instead of going berserk for the umpteenth role. Naomi Watts was a treat as a pregnant Russian immigrant dancer/hooker.
Definitely worth watching.
Over The Top!
Bvs i liked it
LOL, what a name for a movie. I hope they don't have sequels like Indigestion or Hemorrhage, or Inflammation
It is very good.
Supposed? He never was a big favorite. He had similar chances compared to Fernandez.
Certainly sounds interesting from the wiki entry.
The Sureshs Trilogy: Bingeing, Indigestion and Terminal Flatulence.
Realistically, all he had to do was perform at his average level in the free skate, so in his mind he certainly was the favorite. Instead, he went tripping from the first jump, paving the way for the unlikely Fernandez first place.
Started The Madness of King George. (1994). Helen Mirren and Nigel Hawthorne (of Yes, Minister fame).
Also has Mr Carson from Downton Abbey.
Stop it ! I gonna pee !
BvS... saw it on release date, midnight. Disappointing, but on reflection not as bad as I first initially thought. Should have tempered my emotions beforehand
The Trust 90 , starring Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood as 2 dirty cops.
Star Wars Episode 7 - The Force Awakens.
I liked it, but in some ways its strengths are its weaknesses (meaning that it's too similar to Episodes 4 and 5). Overall, I think this resuscitated the franchise from the abysmal depths of Episodes 1-3.
Just started Quiz Show (1994). About Herb Stempl and the "21" quiz show. Interesting.
I like John Turturro. Underrated actor. My favorite role of his is as Ambrose Monk, the neurotic and agoraphobia-ridden brother of Adrian Monk in Monk (TV series).
Interestingly, the recently departed Patty Duke was involved as a young girl in the actual game show scandal, and had to testify in front of Congress.
Did you watch it in Spanish sitting next to Nadal?
The Last Picture Show (1971)
The film sets of the unknown town kept to a minimum to enhance the bleakness.
