Qualia Level 8 Feb 7, 2018

Never saw the movie but I loved the books

@Fibonacci1618 oh man you have to see the sandworm!
And listen to the song by Eon that was sampled from it! Spice!

@Qualia Sounds like you're right. I'm gonna have to find it this weekend then. Thanks for the recommendation and the reminder of a great book. I'll let you know how it turns out if I find it.

@Fibonacci1618 Yes please do!
I'm remiss in having not read the book smile003.gif
But here, there is even a kitty shai hulud in this vid LOL

I have this on cd LOL We used to play the crud out of Eon in my day, way back when. smile001.gif

@Qualia oh man!! You're a rockstar for that !! Just awesome ! Lol ! Talk about intense !! Gotta love the cymatics !

@Fibonacci1618 LOL ☺?
They used to play this at OHMs in Austin... good times!

@Qualia I could see this being a huge hit at the Underground Raves of the time. Houston had warehouses host them. I'm sure I've heard it before but I definitely never saw the vid. Thanks for that!

@Fibonacci1618 Eon did some fantastic stuff too besides this one. You had to be an athlete to keep up with it!
These were the days!

@Qualia Athlete, lol ! Or on "Sports Enhancement " Drugs

I know David Lynch has really hard feelings about how the studio system treated him with "Dune", but there is some really good stuff in the movie. I'm a huge Lynch fan... If anyone hasn't seen the "Twin Peaks: The Return", I'd recommend it also...if you are a Lynch fan.

@Fibonacci1618 idk about the sports enhancement drugs but was known to take a hit of acid here and there. Altho I was a gym rat at the time so naturally on the ceiling .

@Qualia LOL! I was referring to acid, hence the quotation marks! I was trying to be witty by playing off of your comment to needing to be fit to keep up with the beats

Now I have to go back and add "Dune" to my list.

wish I could tell you that Andy fought the good fight, and the Sisters let him be. I wish I could tell you that - but prison is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew. Things went on like that for awhile - prison life consists of routine, and then more routine. Every so often, Andy would show up with fresh bruises. The Sisters kept at him - sometimes he was able to fight 'em off, sometimes not. And that's how it went for Andy - that was his routine. I do believe those first two years were the worst for him, and I also believe that if things had gone on that way, this place would have got the best of him

@Mokvon there are two parts of that movie that really upset me. The rape scene and the scene when the young man that knows the truth is killed.

1941, Casablanca, V is for Vandeta, Field of Dreams......

Tompain1 Level 7 Feb 16, 2019

I was impressed with the 70's Superman and saw it on the big screen. When Raiders of the Lost Ark came out I watched it on the big screen twice by just staying put for the second showing. Then there is always Blazing Saddles. I first saw that movie at a drive in theater. Over the years my family and I have seen that movie upwards of 50 times! We used to have a DVD copy.

DenoPenno Level 8 Feb 15, 2019

@DenoPenno I have all the 70s Superman movies. Christopher Reeve will always be Superman to me.

@SleeplessInTexas I agree. Most of that series of films was good with plot and production values.

A princess bride.
A clockwork Orange.
I could ad quite a few more to this list, but these two have always been ones that any given time some one asks to see them, I'll jump at it.

I love, love, love the Princess Bride. ?

@patchoullijulie Also a Princess Bride fan... smile015.gif

Green Mile, Shawshank redemption, pulp fiction, full metal jacket, the departed,

Usual Suspects

@Kattywampus69 For sure ! I know Kevin has always got his credit for his role but Benicio Del Toro was amazing in this flick !

@Kattywampus69 One of the most underappreciated elements, for sure. Dry and weird.... kinda my favorite type of comedy

@Kattywampus69 I don't know.... Dark comedy to me usually has more of a sinister intent, like the undertones of "Natural Born Killers"

@Kattywampus69 Of course I do, but the comedy didn't spin off of it. The comedy was more charismatic and played off of the eccentricities of the characters more than their intent. IMHO

@Kattywampus69 oh blah blah blah... I enjoyed the exchange. Have a good evening

And Mad Max: Fury Road.

Casablanca is my favorite movie, but I don't watch it often — specifically because I don't want to get sick of it. I rewatch it every couple of years. I like to let the jokes fade from my memory so the quips are fresh when I next watch it. (It's not truly a comedy, but it's a very funny movie for the first half or two-thirds of it.)

Here's a quick, incomplete list of movies off the top of my head that I like to watch repeatedly (though not too frequently):

CLASSICS

  • Casablanca (1942)
  • Dr. Strangelove (1964)
  • Rear Window (1954)
  • It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
  • The Wizard of Oz (1939)

COMEDIES

  • The Wedding Singer [1998]
  • Wedding Crashers (2005)
  • Young Frankenstein (1974)
  • Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

ADULT FILM

  • Behind the Green Door (1972)
  • Candy Stripers [1978]

ACTION

  • The Matrix (1999)
  • True Lies (1994)
  • Total Recall (1990)

ANIMATED

  • The Iron Giant (1999)
resserts Level 8 Feb 16, 2019

I LOVE The Iron Giant.

@Cabsmom It is wonderful, with a strong plot and frank discussions about death and what it means to be a good person, and implicitly dealing with freewill. And Vin Diesel voices the titular character. What's not to love?

Tron (for nostalgia reasons)
Pulp Fiction
Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Get Out

Trading Places, Miss Congeniality, Fargo, Up

Perhaps an interesting twist would be to elaborate on WHY a certain movie resonate with us. We all are different, we all have reasons. There is no right/wrong answer here.

I enjoy Unforgiven, the one with Clint Eastwood, Another one was A Clockwork Orange!
