I was able to use a welder's helmet to view it for a little bit, but then the clouds came in.

I forgot to mention that I have the first book in the series, but just haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I didn't know much about the plot line until the movie trailer, and it does sound interesting.

I haven't read any of The Dark Tower series, and haven't planned on going to see the movie anyhow, but it's surprising to hear they'd take aspects from the whole series and put it in only one movie! I figured they were aiming to make a few movies at least.

I hadn't heard about this until I saw your post, so thanks. It was an interesting interview.

KC - the screening that I'm going to next week also has a special short with film critic Kenneth Turan and Eastwood’s one-on-one interview at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival that delves into the history and legacy of the film.  Did your screening show this as well?
I got to see that as well after the movie went off. The strange thing is I hadn't seen anything that said that there was material after the movie. Luckily I stayed to sit through all the credits.

I'm planning on going Wednesday afternoon.  O0 I didn't make it yesterday.

And according to the IMDb, the movie was released August 7, 1992, so today officially marks the 25th anniversary! 8)  (though an L.A. premiere was apparently August 3)

It's playing the 6th and the 9th of August here. Sunday is only a 2pm showing, while Wednesday is at 2 and 7.
That's what it is for me too.

I checked the Fathom Events website but couldn't even find Unforgiven listed. But at any rate, I'm glad they're showing it.

Unforgiven will be back in theaters for two days next month to celebrate its 25th anniversary. I was at the theater yesterday and they previewed the new series of older movies that would be shown over the next month or so, and this was the first I'd heard about it (TCM is typically the host of these movie series). I also looked around a little online but couldn't find anything official to link here. Just check around for some theaters in your area if you're interested. I definitely plan to check this out on the big screen.

War for the Planet of the Apes was wonderful. O0  I've been a fan of the original Planet of the Apes movies for many years, but I might actually like these new movies better.

Happy birthday, Satu! :) That does sound like a fun day!

That certainly doesn't make me want to check it out at the theater.

George A. Romero has died at 77. I started a Romero thread some years back--he's always been a favorite.

Welcome to the board, 66harley. Seeing the Leone films at the drive-in sounds fun!

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Alfred Hitchcock
« on: July 11, 2017, 07:11:34 AM »
Turner Classic Movies is doing Hitchcock movies two nights a week for the month of July (Wednesdays and Fridays), so last Friday night I watched Number Seventeen and the 1934 version of The Man who Knew too Much. There was nothing special about the first one, but I was very pleased with the original Man who Knew too Much. I didn't realize the 1956 film had been changed so much, besides the basic plot line and the assassination attempt sequence. I still like the 1956 film better (and it's one I've been wanting to watch again), but I definitely enjoyed the original film.

I've looked at this thread a few times, not sure how or what to respond with. Thank you, Raewyn, for letting us know. Your family will be in my prayers.

Has anyone seen or plan to see this new one? I noticed it was playing at a fairly local theater to me, and I am curious about it. But I don't know if I'll go see it while it's in theaters or not.

Babe is based on a children's book by Dick King-Smith (originally published in England as The Sheep Pig). So yep, it's a kids movie at heart. In fact the sequel Babe: Pig in the City was criticized as being too dark and scary for kids from a lot of people. I was 12 when Babe came out in 1995, so while hardly a young kid at the time, the movie completely worked for me. I haven't watched it in a long time, but I'm sure my opinion hasn't changed much for it. But perhaps my opinion for it would be different if I just watched it now for the first time.

It is surprising that Cromwell was nominated since it's not the sort of performance that usually gets nominated, but it was his star making film.

Oh, perhaps the quote from KC's post is saying preproduction started in May for the movie. ???

Oh, great, it's already started production!
