Wizard of OZ was on one of the networks earlier this evening, with it's being remastered it still holds up amazingly well. 1939, wow.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Ha ha! BBC America is playing Terminator right now, I forgot how that cheesy 80's music they play when Sarah Connor first appears on her scooter sounds like it's going to end up being "Nobody Does it Better" sung by Carly Simon.

"Look at it this way, in a hundred years whose gonna' care."

"Phased plasma rifle in a forty watt range?" "Hey, just what you see here pal."

"Hey man... you got a serious attitude problem."

Empty but pretty. In a world full of unwatched (wuxia) movies, I'm unlikely to watch it again.

Just re-watched Gran Torino on TNT. even edited for TV and with adverts, that was time very well spent.

That "keep the change, in case you hit my jugular" bit he said to his barber is probably the single best line from that film.... that and every time he said "Yum Yum". Seriously, just try saying that in your best Clint Eastwood impersonation while standing in front of the mirror.

Speaking of Clint Eastwood impersonations, Get the Gringo was a fun watch.

Yeah I saw that, really beautifully done, however the weird mix of unrealistic kungfu and real-world events was hard to appreciate.
p.s. This Ip Man is way better imho http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1220719/

Diarios de motocicleta (2004)
I've always wanted to travel to Patagonia, the Andes and the coast of Chile. The scenes of the first part of the movie were exiting. The second half started to turn into a legend of St. Che, but that was unavoidable.

Not my site, but I've seen some of it live.  Patagonia is awesome to say the least, been there three times, hope to go again..

Breaking up of the Perito Moreno Glacier - watch the first two at least.  I have never seen such crystal clear blue ice before in my life, a must see to believe experience.  smile

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ Well, 'tis the season for that film I guess.

Back to my favorite Flash animated franchise for Equestria Girls - Friendship Games.  Great songs in this film, but since they're licensed through SME, good luck finding them on the eweToob.

EDIT:  Turns out there's a semi-official fan channel that has Hasbro's army of lawyers fighting against Sony.  Cool.  Most of you probably aren't interested, but I posted a link to a song in the "what are you listening to" thread.  Very Broadway.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

For Head_on_a_Stick's grand-daughter and anyone else who likes the EqG films, I can highly recommend the Disney Princess and Fairies films, and of course associated Pixar films like Brave.  I understand there's a sequel to Frozen coming out soon.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ Pretty close and a good guess, but completely different. wink  Equestria Girls is a spinoff film series of the latest generation of My Little Pony, set in a parallel universe with pastel-colored human counterparts to the pastel-colored ponies.  (There's a portal connecting the two universes; you change species when you go through.)  The films are actually pretty good and have been more successful than the producers expected.

Murder on the Orient Express 1974.  The 2001 film is pretty good as well.

I got only 30 so far, but you can save, so I'll get back to it later. Actually reminded me of some I'd want to see again now..

Shawshank is such an obvious ripoff of Escape from Alcatraz that I'm surprised it didn't stir up some outrage in movie critics.

Murder On The Orient Express ('74) Albert Finney completely transforms himself! Such a creepy-genius character, I can't even watch the PBS David Suchet portrayal as a result of having seen this movie. My parents took me to see it when I was pretty young and the black & white sequences at the beginning (modeled after the Lindberg baby kidnapping) traumatized me a bit.

Watched this again recently and still found it extremely entertaining. Martin Balsam's performance as the director of the rail line is distractingly awful, but Finney's is pure gold, as is Rachel Robert's as the Princess' assistant.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

1979 / Escape from Alcatraz
    Synopsis: A group of inmates attempt a daring escape from the notorious Alcatraz prison island, from which no-one had managed to escape before. Based on a true story.

1994 / The Shawshank Redemption
    Synopsis: Andy Dufresne is a young and successful banker whose life changes drastically when he is convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. Set in the 1940's, the film shows how Andy, with the help of his friend Red, the prison entrepreneur, turns out to be a most unconventional prisoner.

I don't think they are the same at all.  Not even close to the same story line.  OK, they are both in prisons, but so is, The Birdman of Alcatraz

I didn't realize that Murder on the Orient Express had been mentioned.  Sorry
