I'm curious about the new Death Wish. I'll check it out sometime here. I noticed it's based on the original movie, instead of being a new adaptation of the book (I've read the book before, and it's good). I guess I haven't watched it already because I'm a big Bronson fan, and the original is such an iconic movie for him.

Right... I'm in the mood for some lightweight super hero action now..

which of the following do any of you recommend..

Dr Strange
Wonder Woman
Guardians of the Galaxy...

They all look like they might be fun...
I enjoyed all three, though I don't think Dr. Strange has near the acclaim as those other two you list. Guardians is about the best of the Marvel movies (or at least I think so), and Wonder Woman is the best of the DC films.

Digital restoration, I suppose? ???
I don't know. I didn't see anything about it being newly restored.

I saw Vertigo last night at a theater for its 60th anniversary. I typically mention it as my favorite Hitchcock movie, and it is definitely in my top five. It was even nicer because I hadn't seen the movie in a while, so lots of fun seeing it on the big screen.

Black Panther is one of my favorite Marvel movies.

I'm curious about the next Avengers movie, since it appears like they've thrown in just about everyone they could. It seems like there could be too many characters in it, but I'm interested in seeing if it works or not (it very well could work just fine).

Didn't know you'd been sick, Matt, but glad you're feeling better! It seems like it's been really bad this year for stuff like that.

Happy birthday, palooka! Do you celebrate it today to keep it in the month of February?

I happened to check the calendar from two years ago and saw you were born on leap day!

I've only just now read through this thread, and I can't think of any scene like the one Sage describes here either. It sounds like the sort of thing Terence Hill might have done in a movie, though I don't recall anything like that from the few films I've seen of his.

I watched M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable yesterday for the first time and loved it! It's my favorite movie of his now. And it only took me over 17 years to see it after its release. :D

Seriously, if a longtime Clint lover like you thinks it was that bad ... it makes me curious to see it.
Were you not planning on seeing it? Or perhaps waiting for DVD?

I would love to see Rope on stage! I've mentioned before that most of the productions I see are college performances, and sometimes I'll catch a show at a local community theater. I most recently saw the play version of Fahrenheit 451 put on by one of the schools I work for. It was an awesome production!

i don't know if you're kidding, but the rc chase in Dead Pool was a tribute to the chase scene in Bullet.
Tang Lung is referencing an episode of Batman: The Animated Series from 1992.

I've never heard of Sorcerer, but I might see if I can order a DVD through a library because it does sound interesting. I don't know the original movie either.

I noticed the Letters from Iwo Jima poster on the wall, but didn't notice the Pale Rider T-shirt.

I guess not many here have seen the movie yet? Of course I realize not everyone is able to see the movie within the few several days of its release.

I posted in the spoiler thread my thoughts about the movie, but I'll add some non-spoiler ones here. I thought it was okay. There are some things about the movie I liked, and some things about it I didn't care for. I specified a few things in the other thread.

I've only seen two of the nominees (The Shape of Water and Dunkirk). I am interested in seeing Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out.

My grandma's name was Ella too. For the longest time she was the only person I knew of with that name, but I've heard the name more in recent years. :)

Over the past few weeks I've seen, I, Tonya, The Shape of Water, and Hostiles, all officially 2017 releases. I think they're all strong films. All quite different, of course. :D

I saw KC mentioned Hostiles in another thread, mentioning some lines that are taken from Unforgiven. I definitely thought that was a homage to the film. Hostiles is slow paced, but I liked the ending and felt it was worth it.

The Shape of Water is bizarre in some ways but I liked it a lot. It was more humorous than I thought it would be.

And I just watched I, Tonya today. It takes a more sympathetic approach to Tonya Harding, and who knows, maybe it really is the truth. It's also really funny. Margot Robbie and Allison Janney earned their Oscar nominations.

Cool, palooka, when I watched it I did wonder if you were in this one.

The main story line here about the three guys taking down a terrorist on board a train is a compelling one, but overall I was disappointed with the movie. At around 95 minutes it is too long. I would have liked to see it tightened up a bit.

There's too much detail about the trip leading up to the train ride to France. Perhaps a montage of some of that stuff would have been more effective. I'm also not sure why we spend so much time with the guys as kids.

Another random thing I noticed is that the film begins with a voice over of Anthony Sadler. He introduces himself and the other guys and then says that they'll go back to see how it all began... but the movie never does anything else with his voice over. Honestly I didn't want there to be a constant voice over in the movie, but I wasn't sure why it's in the film in the first place.

I also wasn't sure about the voice over used when Spencer is training. It's the part that is used in the trailer. Maybe I missed something there, but what was the context of that? Who was saying it? Where was it being said?

I like the whole train sequence and ending. I didn't mind the guys playing themselves in the movie. I wish the movie had turned out better for them.

This is the most negative review I've ever given an Eastwood movie here. :-\
