I love this movie for many reasons, but I think it's Carrie Fischer who makes the devil-in-the-details of this film for me.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Last night I saw Tightrope (1984), an Eastwood police  detective movie. Nothing revolutionary, exactly what you would expect, but well directed and good-looking dark scenes.

A while back I watched Raising Arizona (1987), a classic Cage movie and quite full of catchy phrases that make good quotes smile

No, sir, no way.

Okay, then. <--- esp. this smile

Meanwhile, I saw Swallow (2019), Sea of Love (1989), Flight of the Phoenix (2004).

Next up is Marnie (1964), a Hitchcock film.

Tonight, we watched Casino (1995), a true gangster classic with de Niro.

I also rewatched Lord of War (2005) and The Wolf of Wallstreet (2013).

Some fun from the 1920s:

Here's a weird one: Easy Rider (1969). Pretty good scenes though.

It's been considered an American film classic for a loooooong time! Definitely weird (Dennis Hopper, need I say more) and I won't spoil the ending.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Saw two John Wayne movies: The Cowboys (1972), and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence (1962). Esp. The Cowboys is a very good picture. I like the style of these two movies, simple yet expressive.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Saw another Western, Seven Men From Now (1956). One of the best, I do now know.

Moreover, I saw Man on Fire (2004) a while back, which was an OK movie, and then another classic, The Running Man (1987) with Schwarzenegger. I really love the vapour wavey scifi style of that movie smile It's a bit sad that you can copy and paste any Schwarzenegger line from any one of his movies into any other of his films without changing a thing but that is just the character he used to play.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Dude, do not disparage OG Arnold. Commando, Predator, Total Recall, Terminator, Conan. Commando and Running Man are my cult favorites.

He should have been in a Mad Max movie. "I vill let you pazz the wasteland all de way to Kal-i-forn-iyaaa!!! RUUUUNNN!!!! GET TO DA CHOPPA!"

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Yes, that was his charm.
I used to like "Total Recall" but not sure I'd still enjoy it.

Going to try 7 Men from Now.
Thanks fro the links.

The scene in the cemetery and at Mardi Gras? Allegedly they weren't acting.

So I had a look at one of the documentaries about Cannon films, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films. These were the dudes who put out virtually every trashy movie of the 80s. As a kid in the 80s, of course I loved each and every one (especially the ninja movies). The doco is really well done, well worth a watch. But I reckon you'd get more out of it from having been a kid in that era.

Anyway, in the doco, they mentioned one movie Cannon made, Runaway Train (1985). They claimed would have been considered a classic if it was made by any other film studio so I decided to check it out. A few bits of cheesy dialogue aside, it really is shockingly good. Legit as good as anything Jon Voight ever did. Simple premise, the characters were deep and there's some really artful moments.

Now I live in a world where Cannon once made a decent flick. Reality is questionable, the theory of gravity is looking shaky, the centre cannot hold, mere anarchy is loosed upon the earth, etc.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Total Recall holds up, personally. Very few Arnold films have suffered with age, all the politically incorrect bollocks in True Lies aside. The dude knew how to make an action movie.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Yesterday night I saw Duel (1971), a Spielberg horror movie. I liked how simple yet effective it is. 90m of relaxed viewing...

I really LIKE 1970s movies. So many great releases came out back then.

I posted in the Watching thread by mistake hmm I pretend that this thread is more sophisticated.
