I missed a chance to see it last week, so now it will probably be next week before I'm able to make it.

I sat through Lawrence of Arabia once. I just checked IMDb and saw I gave it a pretty good rating on there, but thinking back all I remember is the amount of footage of them riding camels. Apparently the movie must have paid off pretty well for me despite how dull a lot of it was.

Someone was recently asking me if I'd seen some well known Christmas movies like Holiday Inn, White Christmas, and Meet Me in St. Louis. I have not. There's also a number of classic Disney movies I haven't seen, like Peter Pan and Bambi.

I'd watch Death Kiss out of curiosity. I didn't buy it though. :D That could be a rental for me. I am a Bronson fan, which should be obvious from this thread. I can get into Bronson kicks from time to time and have a decent collection of his movies on DVD.

AKA, I have the Family of Cops movies on DVD, but actually I've only seen the first one. Maybe I should do a little marathon there.

^ That's pretty funny. Apparently this Robert Kovacs, aka Robert Bronzi, is trying to make a career as a Charles Bronson "doppelgänger." Here's an interview with him:
There's really an uncanny resemblance in those photos!

The CEWB Movie Club / Re: Shadow of a Doubt (1943)

Shadow of a Doubt is in my top five favorite. I don't know if Joseph Cotten is talked about enough these days, but he really was a terrific actor and I love his performance in this.

I was browsing DVDs and saw this movie called Death Kiss, which was released this year:

Take a look at the cover. :D :o ;D

I haven’t had a Christmas vacation since 1990! :o
:o  Does that mean for all these years you've only had off maybe Christmas Eve and Christmas day?

I know Matt loves Rocky as well. Have you seen the Creed movies?
Matt might have missed this from this thread, so I'll repeat it here.

I saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse yesterday... actually I was planning on seeing The Mule but got out of a meeting a little later than I figured, so I saw Spider-Man, which I was also wanting to see anyhow. I'd say it's one of the best overall Spiderman movies I've seen. I don't know comic books very well, and had never heard of Miles Morales as Spiderman... and then I just looked him up and saw he was only created in 2011!

Thanks, everyone! ;D

Yes, good choice, Aline! ;)

Sounds good, exit00. O0 I'll probably see it within a few days.

I just saw the news today. Amazing it took so long for this to get to the public!

AKA, I'm very impressed with your success at scoring a ticket to the premiere and arranging a lightning cross-country trip to get there in time! You must be one of the most dedicated Eastwood fans I've ever met. 8)
Yeah, that is pretty impressive! I was just thinking as I was reading through the last few posts that it seems like AKA has made it these type of events before, perhaps. Am I remembering that right? Or it seems like I remember posts from some years back where he's been somewhere and has spoken to people at Warner Bros. or something like that.

I haven't read every post in this thread because I don't want to know a whole lot about it, but I have the gist of it, I think. I wonder why would they cut a trailer that is so different from the film that's actually there? Is it a case where maybe the studio makes the trailer for the film they hoped for? They should know something like this could blow up in their faces.

I'm not sure if my local theater is going to have the movie yet. They should have all of their movie times listed within a few days. So far the only movie they have listed for Friday is Spiderman. Another theater fairly close by is getting it, so at least I'll be able to see it by the early part of next week at the latest.

I'll go with 10 million.

Maybe with The Mule coming out, we'll get a few old timers dropping by to post some thoughts about it.

I saw Creed II a few days ago and enjoyed it as well. Not as much as Creed, but still enjoyable. It's very predictable but the performances from the whole main cast make it worthwhile.

I was thinking about the title... I guess it could also be considered Rocky VIII. Or Rocky IV Part II. :D ;D  (Creed II is better than Rocky IV at least)

I know Matt loves Rocky as well. Have you seen the Creed movies?

This old guy's about to turn 36 in a few days! :o :D ;D

So, um... happy 16th anniversary to this thread! :D ;D

I was just going through the pages of this forum and clicked on this thread. Pretty fun to look back at the beginnings of this "new" board!
