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:
Harold Lloyd has a new car.

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.

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.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Tatort is a long-running German crime solving TV show with a huge number of full-length (90min) episodes spanning 5 decades.
Just recently I noticed - again - how good most of them are.
Different "sub-series" with different teams of investigators, and a different local setting.

Most people can watch/download at least some of them here. I watched 3 off the top of that list - mostly re-runs I think - two were superb and the third was good (edit: a few new Tatort's came up since I first wrote this).
I just read that they may also be found on Netflix.

I was trying to find English subtitles, but that seems to be more difficult.
This page lists only a few.
A simple web search suggests one or two other options.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Last night we watched "The Money Pit" (Tom Hanks, Shelley Long 1986)

Kind of reminded me of my own situation. We had to move into temporary accommodation (baby, budgies etc) at an hours notice at the end of February, due to burst pipes under the floor.

It's an uneven movie, but these bits are classic!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Tom Hanks' laugh is so epic, you can see how it might influence a comedian like, oh, I don't know... Jim Carrey.

Compare to Eddie Murphy from the same time frame, his laugh was always "nyuck nyuck nyuck", and maybe not as funny as a result. Beverly Hills Cop (1984)...

I forwarded this to my mother and she has asked if there are subtitles in German. She understand German but is very hard of hearing.

I find subtitle files for at least some episodes but how are they applied?

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

There are German subtitles for some Tatorts.
Mediathekview (highly recommended) saves them as .ttml and .srt.
The .ttml file seems to be exactly the same you get when you hover the video symbol, then click the UT link on this page. I assume MediathekView converts it to .srt.
MPV cannot deal with .ttml it seems; you'd need to convert it to .srt or some such (if you cannot use the MediathekView desktop app). A quick web search will show you.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Thanks, I guess I can figure that out. My 89 year old mother and her W7 box is another matter. What she does with that computer is kind of impressive given that she started with computers and internet in her late 70's. Having been her computer support for the duration I am, however, aware of where the limits are.

The Spook Who Sat By The Door (1973)
Knew of the film for some time thanks to the Herbie Hancock soundtrack - which was produced in 1973 but only released in the mid 2000s - but never watched it till now Thanks @ GekkoP from LinuxBBQ forum for the link/rec.

MediathekView is a java app and should be available for Windows, too. Highly recommended. Combines well with VLC. You can do all sorts of stuff with it. automatic downloading of new episodes incl. subtitles too, I guess.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ Totally unrelated, I saw a much newer TV show last night where one of the characters said "It's not gonna work. She's playing us like Lucy with her football". I recognized the reference immediately big_smile

(that said I'm not sure if aboliz isn't a spammer)
