I just checked Slacker's last post - it was 11 years between posts. I think that has to be a record!

:o That is some epic slacking! ;)

IŽll try to join as much as I could (can`t suggest anything at the moment,IŽll get back on that) though I kind of sucked with the Eastwood challenge as I still have not watched all of those films  :-[

Great, glad to have you join in Hemlock!

A lot of people dropped off with The Eastwood Challenge. The pace was a little quick. I'm hoping with the slower pace, and having it more personalized with member choices, that we might be able to maintain more participation throughout.

I just started a locked thread where we can see at a glance what members are participating in this theme, and what movies they've nominated. You can find that here:

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=10506.msg233531#msg233531

But still use this thread to show you're interested and to tell us what movies you want.

I'll go with Deal M for Murder (1954) v A Perfect Murder (1998).

I could try to participate. Or at least try to try.

I can rattle off two dozen remakes, but I'll start with two that possibly very few of you have seen either one, so the perspectives on both would be fresh and instant...


Criss Cross
(1949, Robert Siodmak)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZESMg9CrMc


and

The Underneath
(1995, Steven Soderbergh)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGypRYIyr0I




The two versions of The Vanishing are especially interesting because the same man directed both films. This has happened a handful of times over the years. Very similar to George Sluizer directing the Dutch original and the Americanized remake, Ole Bornedal directed his thriller Nattevagten - Nightwatch (1994) as well as its Americanized remake Nightwatch (1997). More recently Takashi Shimizu got to remake his Japanese horror movie Ju-on as The Grudge in America, and Austrian Michael Hanake made the German-language and American versions of Funny Games ten years apart. Michael Mann's Heat (1995) was a remake of his own little-seen made-for-TV movie called "L.A. Takedown" (1989). Even the Master, Alfred Hitchcock remade his own film when he reworked his 1934 thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much into the 1956 Jimmy Stewart/Doris Day flick. Frank Capra remade his 1933 Lady for a Day in 1961 as A Pocketful of Miracles. And another 1930s movie was remade by its director when Yasujiro Ozu turned his Silent The Story of Floating Weeds (1934) into the very colorful Floating Weeds (1959).

Fantastic. We knew you'd have some great suggestions for us.

We've had a really good turn-out, so I'll give everyone another week. We'll wait till after the election November 8th, and post the final schedule. So if anyone else still hasn't signed up or pick their movies, do it now.

I'm in. At least I'll try real hard. Can't think of any movies right now, but I'll ponder that while I'm working.

If I can make suggestions to the ones that haven't decided, Hitchcock's classic Psycho (1960) should have remained untouchable but there is a remake from 1998 starred by Vince Vaughn.

The Count of Monte Cristo (1934) won a remake in 2002, also not good. Originals are always better, I think.

Yeah, I'd like to make a few suggestions to those who want to particpate but can't think -- first, check out the list Holden provided. And then, also consider Yojimbo v A Fistful of Dollars v Last Man Standing.  We might do all three for that one if anyone wants to name that as their choice.

There's actually several movies by Clint we might pick to pair up with non-Clint movies. How about Shane and Pale Rider? Play Misty for Me and Fatal Attraction? The Ox-Bow Incident and Hang 'em High? Maybe even The Hurt Locker and American Sniper?

I like Matt's suggestion.  Please put my choice down as Yojimbo v A Fistful of Dollars v Last Man Standing. KC has some really great suggestions, but I couldn't make up my mind and I've watched most of them fairly recently.  Thank you to those who provide suggestions to people like me who find themselves lacking in good ideas.  :)

I have no idea what to suggest. The access to films here is not that great at the moment. And my knowledge for this theme is not so good.  :-\

Okay, let's help Satu out. Either we can skip her choices for this theme, or we can choose one for her.

I have never seen The Ox-Bow Incident or Shane. Would someone like to 2nd one of these two selections from KC:

Shane (1953) and Pale Rider (1985)

The Ox-Bow Incident (1943) and Hang 'em High (1968)
