Growing up (and old) kinda stinks doesn't it.
its how we separate the wheat from the chaff, the ones that stand the test of time are superb. There are some great 1950's western movies that are still great, cause it was plot driven, not special effects driven like many movies today.
actually cement won't shock you. Electricity will shock, cement just provides a nice ground to complete the circuit. Damp concret works best (its actually the water providing the conduction. Dry cement is an insulator thats actually used in some high voltage components as an insulator to negate arcing.
Bond: "Do you expect me to talk?"
Goldfinger: "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!"
Loading 2,000lbs of gold, compacted into a 4,500lb Lincoln, into the back of a Ranchero.
A giant, asian guy throwing a razor sharp bowler.
What could you possibly not like about this show?
Never thought much about Goldfinger either way until they did this great cover:
actually a lot Hitchcock still holds up for instance, The Trouble With HArry, which I just rewatched a few months ago, probably the 5th time I've seen it and I still get a kick out of it.
Hitchcock as all artist was a product of his time, he was no more misogynistic than everyone else at the time.
check out Dial M for Murder...
and of course, North by northwest, a movie so good that Austin,tx named a festival after it.
Mmmmm... Honor Blackman.... mmmm...
Roald Dahl wrote the script for You Only Live Twice
I watched OHMSS last night. Still my favourite.
Great story arc, three proper acts, seriously cool Diana Rigg who did the best driving, great snow scenes, awesome avalanche... possibly the best music of the series.
My 20 yr old son sat through it and thought it was great too even at over two hours long.
I must have seen 20 fx laden modern movies in the last year which seem to be just one action scene long and I can barely remember a moment of them after. Sometime they come on and I am not sure I have seen them before they are so unmemorable.
I generally check the IMDB rating before I watch. Life's too short to spend it watching 4 and 5 rated movies. I generally stick with 7's or better, but will watch lower rated films if they are novel or have interesting premises, a flawed interesting movie is better than so much of the fluff that passes for "entertainment".
I use a projector, don't own a tv, so I get the more cinematic presentation that allows you to see the nuances of the shot. Recommend it for anyone seriously interested in film and story telling. I've got a short throw, that only needs to be 20" inches from the wall to throw an 8 foot image. been watching a lot of 1950's, early 60's films lately.
so many good movies, so little time.
this is a good list to work from:
Well, we have a movie room that runs off a projector with a screen. I honestly don't even use that room all that much. Mostly my wife does her girls movie night one day a month and the kids use it. I pretty much watch the news and AHC.
Four decades of watching Bond films can be summed up in just over three decades to me: Tiffany Case, and Miranda Frost. (Jill St. John and Rosamund Pike.)
I used to love watching the marathon runs of Bond with my Dad, but I still prefer the books now. It isn't the same watching them without him anyway.
Surely you can't include Where Eagles Dare and Von Ryan's Express in this? They are even more awesome now
Broadsword calling Danny Boy...
Yes, the Europe I remember when travelling as a young lad. Nostalgia... it ain't what it used to be.
I don't like Moore but I do like the ski scenes, with skiers John Eaves and Willie Bogner ( who had a ski clothing label too, my mate had a jacket, it was awful lol)
Like James Bond movies or hate 'em, you have to love "The Spy Chord"... http://chord-a-day.blogspot.com/2010/04/james-bond-spy-chord-em-major9.html
I thought it was Peter Sellers, Could be wrong because it was quite a while back.
On the subject of Bond girls, Lana Wood is very impressive in a Dolly sort of way. Some images are definitely NSFW and totally wasted on this old bloke
gave up on the news a decade ago, feel much better....
I still love a lot of old movies. Death Wish 2-5, Dirty Harry aside from the last one with Jim Carey, French Connection, The Great Escape, The Conversation, etc....
I had always loved Bond movies, or so I thought.
Niven plays Bond and Sellers the villain.
