Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

it's context... it's probably seemed distant and far fetched to a generation that can not relate to a lifestyle that was real and true.

you're getting OLD

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Once Upon a Time in the West

Rich train baron - check.
Sadistic gun for hire - check.
Mysterious quick shooting stranger - check.
Gunfighter with a heart of gold - check.
Beautiful rich widow prostitute - check.
Horses, trains, and lots of gunfights - check.

This has everything a western should have. Plenty of close in face shots with menacing music as well. Lots of fun.

This has everything a western should have, plus harmonica music. Plenty of close in face shots with menacing music as well. Lots of fun.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I was about 14 when I first watched One Upon A Time In the West, and to see Henry Fonda - and American legend - shoot a whole family, including a child, was completely shocking and made me think of movies in a different way.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Once Upon a Time in the West is easily in the Top Five Westerns of all time. It was recently chosen so in our film draft, just completed. And Claudia Cardinale. And the best musical score. And....“Well... I gotta go.....”

I can't think of a better opening to a movie...it's the greatest.

+1. And I can't think of a more perfect Lady MacBeth than Frances McDormand. I immediately pictured the whole thing, including her giving Toshiro Mifune "the look," just as if he had told her that the King of Scotland was going to take off on a bus with a rock 'n roll band.

Denzel? Maybe.

On the list. I was planning a Scorcese run with The Departed and Casino in addition to Goodfellas. Then maybe on to The Godfather (I and II anyway).

is there really anything better than this... gives almost any top Kubrick shot a run for it's money!



you can JUST see Mr. Harmonica way in the background as the wagon driver pivots out of the way...

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Yes, God, Yes Cute little movie about growing up in catholic school. Nancy Wheeler from Stranger Things is the lead and she is really good in this. The movie is based off of a short film and I don't think there was enough material for even an 80 minute movie. 7/10.

Wow, Charlie Kaufman, Jessie Buckley, and Jesse Plemons? Yes, please. Buckley killed it in Taboo and Chernobyl.

Dawson City: Frozen Time is amazing. Watching far too many movies these days when I should be doing other things.

Randomly ran into The French Connection right at the opening credits. 104 exceptionally well spent minutes.

Iím here for the hell yeah! Eternal Sunshine is one of my favorites. Plemons has been excellent in everything Iíve seen. Kaufman playing around with time sounds amazing.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Cul-de-sac movie night last night. Somebody else picked Billy Madison.

Sometimes I like Adam Sandler, but this was just terrible. I realize it's not serious moviemaking, but the story should at least hold together a little bit.

Kind of too bad, it was the neighbors' last night before they move. Would've much preferred to send them out with something at least watchable.

Fortunately, I had a fridge full of beer, so could hang out and tend the fire pit at least.
