And
Which you is meant by "your":

"your" as in me, the original poster or

e.g: making that one's bible

Care to elaborate?


all in moderation, i'd say.

On that we have unanimous agreement.

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

^ i guess my weak grasp on english shows there.
what i wanted to say:
making any one Thing (with a capital T) one's blueprint for - life, raising kids, whatever - isn't really so healthy. not for you (the one), not for the kids.

in the end "it depends" is the only credo i have.

Kirsty: I didn't open the box!

Female Cenobite, slowly rotating: Didn't open the box. And what was it last time?... Didn't know what the box was. And yet we do keep finding each other, don't we?

Pinhead, also rotating: Oh, Kirsty! So eager to play. So reluctant to admit it!

Female Cenobite: Perhaps you're teasing us. Are you teasing us?

Kirsty, screaming: I've come for my father!

Cenobites laugh

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

I'll make a bold statement... Given that Blade Runner is in a league of its own in this category, the best movie audio is Rollerball (1975, Andre Previn conducting the London Symphony Orchestra).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR8HWfzVPLE

Rollerball also wins the prize by a mile for best use of fonts in a movie.

Jaws (1975), John Williams and the LSO with music by John Williams, is objectively a better music pick, by more than a mile.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtDleusg9ew

I take it back, it's not even close. Rollerball>Jaws.

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

Blade Runner, any version. You can smell the dystopia and Vangelis.

-edit- So, theory... this next shot I'm posting, at the beginning of the film, is setting up and foreshadowing a lot. Flying cars, Corporate Power... but those translucent diamonds on the left of the shot, those are Zora's snake scales in the bathtub, which results in Deckard's detective work, and finally the assassination.

And here is my evidence, may the court admit it.

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

I've unstickied the Movie thread, this one's better IMO.

Total Recall (1990). Arguably the best directing of Paul Verhoeven's lurid career, featuring a crappy score by Jerry Goldsmith.

Opening scene...

As flawed as it is, Dune is still one of my favorite sci-fi/fantasy films.

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

As time passes and the Zombie Apocolypse grows nearer, The Omega Man (dir. Boris Sagal, starring Charlton Heston, 1971), a B-film at best, has become my favorite film of all time, beating out Blade Runner and Touch of Evil (90s re-edit/remaster). The first half-hour is just so bloody gripping and entertaining.

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

^ best adaptation of the book I am Legend, IMO.

The version with Vincent Price is pretty good, too.

You have no idea of the laughs that scene gave me and my friends when we saw that in our teens. Oh we used to parody that scene so much. It was our favourite scene of any movie back then. buses, budgies, and buggies, come to mind whenever I see that image always reminds me of them times larking about with friends doing variations on that theme


The telephone is an antiquity - you never know who is calling, there is no image, it is an outmoded product which constantly disrupts work (Ralf Hutter (Kraftwerk)) ps: my wife knows how much I dislike being disrupted at Work - Ralf Hutter hit the nail on the head there

One of my favorite quotes ever, let alone from that film. However, my favorite scrots from Aliens are these two at the beginning of the film...

If they'd only paid the electric bill so they could have turned on a studio light or two it'd even be watchable.

Wow, that's one of the most jaded movie comments I've heard in quite a long time, and I just said that I consider the lighting in Aliens to be superb, so obviously we disagree, and you're wrong. Maybe you mean the first film, Alien, which is lit darker. You'd still be wrong, both of those movies have near-perfect lighting.

Mine would be that James Horner is a bit of a hack film-scorer, and he reused a bunch of music from Star Trek: Wrath of Khan for the action sequences of Aliens, but you have me way beat. This clip says Aliens, which would be the assault land-vehicle scene when Ripley takes over from Gorhman, but it's also most of (all of) the Klingon 'Bird of Prey' scenes in Wrath of Khan...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qwZrKXGctA

Apparently it was because Cameron left him no time to finish Aliens, but whatever.
