I've got the whole set and was going to watch them while reading the books, but the divergence made that idea far too painful.

The books have nothing to do with the movies. Moonraker?

Are you going through these chronologically, or are they playing on TNT or something?


My nephews downloaded about 3000 assorted movies for me while I was overseas and I've been going through the hard drives looking for worthwhile stuff. I started with the Daniel Craig Bonds and then the Brosnan then the Dalton then back to the Connery, leaving the Moore ones til last.

I grew up on the Bond films and it's fun to revisit them. I enjoy the basic silliness of them and how they are not intended to be taken too seriously, unlike the books. Though the last three seem a little too "James Bourne" in style, they still work.
Zelig (1983) Brilliant. Deserves its accolades.

Casino Royale could have been filmed as the book,taking place in a seedier Dieppe coastal casino that's seen better days but it would be a small production more along the lines of Tinker tailor, Smiley's People or the Spy Who came In From The Cold. I like what Eon Films and the producers have done to the Bond stories.

Interesting that they didn't film CR at first, considering it was the first book - for a long there was only the TV movie and that drug-addled send-up.
Destination Moon (1950) Some of the movie is quite sophisticated and almost realistic. Good fun though. I was inspired to find this film amongst my collection from the thread on Spacex's landing attempt.

The Fox and the Hound. I finally kept an engagement I broke when I was 11 years old, entering my monsters and gore phase, and didn't really enjoy Disney films anymore. Anyway, I always kind of felt bad about it so I got it off my chest. TBH, it's pretty, better than a lot of 70's Disney stuff, but the story is very lightweight. I was expecting it be heavier and deeper with actual foxhunts and stuff. The Hound doesn't get as much development as the Fox. Pearl Bailey is comforting. It's okay.

What's important is that your broken promise haunted your conscience all these years ...
finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy.

Fun movie, like Firefly meets Fifth Element.
I was more familiar with the villains than the heroes. Hopefully Marvel will consider giving Silver Surfer another chance on film if they do more Infinity Gem stories.

It's kind of strange...most of the characters in that movie originated with Fantastic Four, but I guess Fox still owns FF and Silver Surfer.

God Bless America (2012) Stars Joel Murray, the guy from Mad Men, who is Bill Murray's brother. Violent revenge fantasy movie. Unsatisfying.

Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. I saw it a couple of years ago, interesting premise, but he script was another case of actors having words put in their mouths by a writer, instead of speaking believable dialog, just like Dogma. I hate it when I can hear the writing in every line.

I thought the whole point was that it was a stupid revenge movie that should make you realize how stupid revenge movies are?
Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993) Woody Allen and Diane Keaton along with Alan Alda and Anjelica Huston, solve a murder. Good fun.

Yes, the first one was a lot better, but this one wasn't so bad.
Annie Hall (1977) I think this film and "When Harry Met Sally" define modern romantic comedies.

Sin City (2005) Better than the sequel. Even all Mickey Rourke's makeup couldn't disguise how much his features changed between films.

They misspelled Walken's name.
The World's Fastest Indian (2005) Anthony Hopkins. Lightweight feel good movie based on a true story of a New Zealander who dreams of running his modified Indian bike at Bonneville for the record.

My Dinner With Andre (1981) Tedious, rather than boring. Andre describing his experimental theatre stuff for the first half is somewhat interesting. The second half is not much more than meaning of life stuff that High school seniors and college kids engage in. Not especially illuminating.

I learned that it was filmed over a few days, and that the restaurant in which it was filmed is not in actually New York.

I always wanted to see it just out of curiosity.
The Seven Year Itch (1955) Tom Ewell, Marilyn Monroe. Classic and iconic film.

Great late period Paul Newman in this.
It's 20 years old. I recall seeing (parts of) it on cable a couple years after it came out.
The setting was pretty recognizeable for me--I wasn't familiar with the exact shooting locations, but it had all the appropriate dreary shabbiness of upstate NY small cities that are long past their glory days.

What is funny seeing it again is now I am much more familiar with the shooting locations, --and in the last 10 years or so, the main ones featured (Hudson,and Beacon) have become re-vitalized, with cafes, restaurants, boutiques and art spots. So it's the same old buildings standing, but they aren't boarded up or in disrepair like they are in the movie.

Divergent.

God damn this movie got a lot of human waste when it came out. I have heard so much bad stuff about this movie that I had just avoided it in general. Something prompted me to try it a few days ago, and I just watched it.

It wasn't my favorite movie. I just think that the fact that it came out around The Hunger Games meant that it seemed like a much worse movie in comparison. The truth is that The Hunger Games movies are much better.

That being said, I understood the social control aspect, and I completely understood the motivation of the main character and the theme of the movie.

It's not a great movie, but I didn't think it was terrible. It's an okay movie.

"After about 312 new edits and cuts and almost 5 hours removed from the trilogy, this single film combines the three Peter Jackson movies into one immense epic that accurately tells the story of Bilbo", Killstein, aka FunnyPuzzle, writes, "while maintaining what new ideas and battles have been implanted in Jackson's retelling (such as the Battle of the Five Armies containing orcs instead of goblins)."


:brow:

Orcs are goblins.
The Hoax (2006) Richard Gere, Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden. Very distorted telling of how the author Clifford Irving hoaxed his publisher and the world with a fake autobiography of Howard Hughes in the early 70s.

F For Fake (1973) written directed and starring Orsen Wells in a weird documentary about Clifford Irving, (see above), and the famed art forger Elmyr de Hory. Filmed just at the time Irving was working his fake book scam and released after the hoax became known. So, meta, as the kids would say. Worth a look if you like artsy 70s editing.

Edge of Tomorrow

Interesting seeing Tom Cruise playing a kitty.

Seeing the ads I thought it was just another video game take-off. Pleasantly surprised to find out it was a decent movie.
