Crop And Save
Bob, Ray and The Girls.
I probably haven't seen this since the night it was aired. i remember it as being as funny as some of the better SNLs. It was always great to see the underused SNL women used properly. Bob and Ray held up their end brilliantly, and THE GIRLS are wonderful. The real reason I'm posting a comment on this is to ask the other poster who commented on 'Bob, Ray & The Girls' what kind of maniac describes Gilda in such a manner. She was obviously head and shoulders above the other girls, and on par with Belushi, Ackroyd and Murray in comedic performing talent. I find your disrespect and non-appreciation of a Comedy Genius upsetting and disturbing.
Miami Blues (1990)
For my tastes, a truly superb
and entertaining movie, though, in NO WAY do I consider this a comedy.
Excellent performances by Baldwin and Ward, but especially Jennifer Jason Leigh. If this had been recognized as a regular 'REAL' motion picture, she might have been nominated for an Oscar. Absolutely one of her best performances.
Kudos all around.
But this ain't no comedy.
And, on a side note, I believe Shirley Stoler was at one time an actress known as Shirley Kirkpatrick.
I am mesmerized by this film
First saw it on HBO (many times) about 1980. Just love the Ken Russell 'exaggerated' feel and look. Made me look into the life of Valentino, where I was disappointed to find that Ken Russell had really 'exaggerated' Rudy's life. I didn't see it again until 1998 on a trip to Canada, in a somewhat edited version. I just watched it on the True Stories channel, I fell in love with it again. Ken Russell's version of the cause of Rudy's death is much more interesting than the actual cause of Valentino's death. I taped it and expect to watch it a few more times.
C'era una volta il West (1968)
Watching this movie was an excruciating experience. To compare this movie to "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly", which was slow itself, is a joke. None of the characters are as interesting as any of the 3 leads in TGTBATU. OUTITW is pure crap, and drawn out, punishing crap at that. Give me Tuco, Angel Eyes and Blondie. TGTBATU is (too) slow, but it leads to scenes and dialogue unparalleled in film history. God bless you, Tuco (who I named a GREAT cat after).
Married to It (1991)
Don't understand why critics hate this movie so much. Great cast, great acting (excluding Cybill Shepard, but what can you do?), and different angles used to show how marriage is different things to different people.
As a lifelong bachelor (no, I'm not gay), this movie gave me additional insight into marriages (besides the ones I've observed in real life), and sometimes reflected my experiences I have been through in long term relationships.
I really like this movie.
Black Sunday (1977)
Bruce's greatest Bruce
I liked this movie when I first saw it, thought all the performances, and the pace of the movie, were very good. But now, when I see it's going to be on TV, I tape it, so I can scan through most of the movie to get to Bruce Dern's scenes. The man was just magnificent. He gave the movie the proper edge it needed. His whimpering "They did it to me, now why can't I do it to them" scene is a classic, and should be mentioned more often when classic movie scenes are discussed. Alas Bruce, we just didn't get to see you play enough characters with the sincere edge and performance that we saw you give in this movie.
Sunshine State (2002)
Worth a watch
I enjoyed this movie, but I watched it over the course of four installments. This may sound strange, but I don't understand why movies like this are made. It seemed pretty obvious that this movie wouldn't make money, and the effort put into it might have been better spent elsewhere. Of course, I'm not the type of movie fan that generally appreciates movies on an artistic level (though there are a few exceptions), and I thought the individual performances were excellent, but I just didn't see the purpose of this movie being made. Just one man's opinion.
Public Morals (1996)
Not So Bad
I saw this in it's original one-show run, and have it on tape somewhere. I didn't think it was any worse than 75% of the comedies on TV. I know that if there had been a second show, I would have watched it. The word was out that this was going to be some sort of low-level, politically incorrect comedy show, and it was reviewed badly before it aired, so I kinda knew by the first commercial it would be gone.
Silver River (1948)
Wish Turner colorized this one
I think this is a great movie. I am a big fan of Errol Flynn (in early adult years, he was my idol) and Ann Sheridan, the "Ooomph Girl, just makes me weak, so it's hard for me to find fault. Those familiar with Flynn's career will note that this is a departure from his performances up to that point. Some say this was his warmup for "That Forsythe Woman". Thomas Mitchell is excellent, and I find Flynn's acting superb. An underappreciated movie
Dead Weekend (1995)
Don't Watch, Just Listen
Great use of Leslie West song 'Sea of Fire' and great music provided by Alice Cooper/Lou Reed guitar player Steve Hunter. Too bad such good music had to be wasted on such a terrible movie. But there is a certain amount of viewing pleasure derived from watching Stephen Baldwin's terrible acting.
