AKA23  have you watched a silent film yet or plan on watching one soon?  City Lights isn't a short one but it's a great one to watch. Highly recommend it. Curious to hear your thoughts after watching a silent film.

I watched city lights earlier. Really great movie. Enjoyed it a lot!  It really flows well with constant excitement and entertainment. Very funny movie.

Thanks KC
That helped a lot.
The new piano score on my dvd is actually pretty good. It seems to fit well. I still would have preferred the original music from 1925. Or Chaplin?s 1942 score. But it?s still the same movie and comedy.

My dvd of The Gold Rush doesn?t have the original 1925 soundtrack from the original movie. On the back of my dvd case it says all new music score by Keith Taylor piano. Just wondering if any of you know why they wouldn?t keep the original soundtrack on this dvd?  The piano sounds good and everything. But just wondering why they wouldn?t keep the original soundtrack?  It appears they?ve done that to many other silent era films too.

Yeah I've heard about Nosferatu. Never seen it before. I'm a horror movie fan. Is Nosferatu pretty good?

Yeah the stunts are really cool. That's what kind of sparked my interest. Watched The Gold Rush last night. The stunts at the end we're really cool.

Yeah AKA23 I use to come home late at night after work and put on the TCM channel. Cause I like older Classic movies. The older classic movies with sound that is. Like Rear Window, 12 Angry Men, it's a wonderful life etc. Every now and then they would be showing silent era movies. I didn't like them at all. Couldn't watch them. Cause too use to movies with sound. So one night I said what the heck I'll make myself watch some. Give it a chance. I gradually started enjoying them. They grew on me. I actually found them to be funny and entertaining. I feel like it's something different. And plus those movies are the beginning of movie making. And it's cool getting a sense of what people back then use to watch movie wise. With all that said can't say I'm just a huge fan of silent movies. Don't think I could spend all day watching a marathon of them. I still prefer watching older classic movies 40s, 50s, 60s  and movies from 70s, till now which all have sound. But I have come to appreciate and enjoy watching a silent movie from time to time. I actually don't remember what silent ones I watched on TCM channel cause it was several yrs ago. But I am going to add maybe 5 to 10 of them to my movie collection. I've got The Gold Rush that came in yesterday. And I've got City Lights ordered. Starting with those two. I like Charlie Chaplin a lot. Mostly getting his movies. But plan out getting a couple Buster Keaton ones too.

Thanks Christopher

Looking forward to seeing these that everyone has mentioned. Amazing how entertaining these movies are with no sound. Ive heard mostly about Chaplin. But I?m planning on seeking out some Buster Keaton movies. From what I?ve read about him and from what y?all are saying sounds like he?s a tremendous silent era actor. Several yrs ago back when my cable tv had the TCM channel they showed some silent movies. At first I didn?t care for them. Cause I?m so use to movies with sound. But after watching a few I started liking them. Something different and there actually pretty funny and entertaining. And you get to see what people in the 20s and 30s watched back then.

Thank you Matt and Doug. I will have to watch those y?all recommend.

10
Thanks Grant

Yeah seems like Chaplin and Keaton were the two biggest stars back then. Ive read great things about The Gold Rush. And also Buster Keaton?s The General. The General looks pretty good. Have you seen either one of those Gant?  And thanks for replying.

I have been wanting to add a few silent era movies to my collection for some while now. I've ordered The Gold Rush Charlie Chaplin film. Few years ago I watched a couple silent films on TCM channel and actually enjoyed them. It's nice getting a sense of what people watched back in the 20s and 30s. But theres something unique and different about them. Do any of you like silent era films?  What are some of your favorite ones?

Eastwood News / Re: Happy 90th birthday Clint.....

Happy Birthday Mr Eastwood. Thank you for all the great movies!  90 yrs old is a great achievement. I'll be watching my A&E biography DVD of you here in a bit to celebrate your 90th birthday.  :)

I hear ya Jed. I felt the same way about Firefox first time I watched it too. Really didn’t like it at all. Course since Clint’s in it makes it somewhat good. But since my first viewing of it I’ve seen it two more times. I actually like it better now. It has grown on me too. I think it’s actually a fun little movie. A lot of movies have that effect on me more times I watch them. I think out of all of Clint’s movies he’s acted in Wagon Train is the only one where I said I wouldn’t care to see this one again. I’ll probably watch it again. But I’m thinking the effect won’t be the same as Firefox did for me. Firefox won’t ever be in my top 10 or probably even my top 20 Eastwood movies but I have come to like the movie much more than I did first time watching it.

Yeah love the Expendables. No other movie has had that many action stars in it. I'm hoping for fourth one too. Would be cool for Eastwood to make a cameo like Chuck Norris did. But I know that's highly unlikely.

Big Stallone fan. Him and Eastwood are my two fav actors. Love all the Rocky and Rambo movies. And Cobra, over the top, lock up, victory, cliffhanger, expendable series, nighthawks, are also some favs.

Magnum P.I. DVD complete series set.

I know right Perry. It's sad. But you are right. I've never been much into all the special effects. Not a huge fan of the marvel hero type movies. With the exception of Batman. I like 1989 Batman movie and The Dark Knight. But that's pretty much it. I like just a good movie with a good plot/storyline good atmosphere, and great acting. The Mule was a great movie to me. I've always preferred movies that Eastwood acts in over direct only movies. But the man is a great director.
