Am currently watching Alien..... for the very first time..
What did you think of it?

I remember seeing it a long time ago and thinking it was okay. Then I watched it again maybe nine or ten years ago, and I loved it. It might be my favorite monster movie of all time.

I enjoyed it... Wish I'd seen it first time round but I could see what all the fuss is about.
Next up..... Blade runner..

For manyone with an interest in classic older movies I cant recommend strongly enough the podcast Hollywood Histories.. its on i-tunes..

It goes so deep into the histories of movies an actors and is often very moving and extremely informative..also very entertaining..

Im currently mid way through the story of RKO film producer Val Lewton. Ive always been a fan but the podcast has sent me right back to rewatch some of his classic horror movies..

starting with Cat People 1942 staring Simone Simon and directed by Jaques Tournier..



Lewton produced a series of great movies at RKO rescuing the company from bancruptcy afetr a certain Mr WElles had been involved with them..
I'd definitely also recommend Man in the Shadows..A very good documentary on Mr Lewton by Martin Scorsese..



I enjoyed Cat People just as much all these years later.. quality film..

IN A Lonely Place 1950
Directed by Nicholas Ray



I got to see this fantastic movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Graheme at the British Film Institute on Londons Southbank..

The only way to see quality movies is on the big screen.. I've always been a fan of Lonely Place and its directer Nick Ray..
One of Bogarts best as a Hollywood screenwriter with a vicious temper.. who may or may not have murdered a young girl. Graheme is also  very good as the neighbour who provides him with an alibi whilst also falling in love with him.  A  very dark noirish thriller..

As an aside.. I could see Clint being good  in this role at around a similar age to Bogart..
Looked great on the big screen too...

I remember watching In a Lonely Place in a film class in college. I liked the movie a lot, but have only more recently become a big Bogart fan.

Last week I watched That Thing You Do, written, directed, and costarring Tom Hanks. I loved the movie! I can't believe it only took me 21 years to get around to it. :D

I remember catching In a Lonely Place at one of the revival cinemas here, Film Forum I think. I was amazed at how dark Bogie went in that one. Very powerful movie.

Yeah, agreed... Very dark. I think Bogart played a big part in getting this film made, so he obviously fancied trying something a little different. Very impressive.

I'm going to see Annette Bening in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool" tonight where she plays actress Gloria Graheme towards the end of her life...

Couldn't sleep last night so ended up watching Australian horror movie

The Killing Ground... 2016

Deliverance down under !

It was well made as far as these things go.. Couple out camping in the outback stumble across a horrific crime scene.
Some nice twists etc... Reminded me a little of Wolf Creek but with rape scenes  and violence against a baby thrown in. Nasty.

Is the Australian film industry dead set on dissuading tourists from visiting and holidaying in their country ?

Another late night..

Quote
The Cassandra Crossing 1976

Typical star studded mid 70's fun. Bit dated now but great cast.. The model work was pretty decent too
and surprisingly graphic scenes also.. I'm sure this wouldve been R rated. Unusual for a disaster movie..

Anyway, I'll watch anything with Burt Lancaster in it..

Sorcerer 1977



Finally turned up again on tv.. I love this film..



Stariing Roy Scheider and directed by William Friedkin..
Pretty much a re-make of the classic French film Wages of Fear

I don't think a more tense action thriller has been made...

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 love the original but this re-make is great too... Unfortunately released the same week as the first Star Wars movie..

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
