Currently Watching - popcorn anyone?

Recommended Posts

I thought it about time we had a Currently Spinning for movies, as I just dont feel right adulterating the Currently Spinning thread with movies.

And having just watched a modern classic what better time than to start now?

Tonight's viewing was the Final Director's Cut of Blade Runner. A dark tale of a future world, where replicants are so real they learn emotions, and good old Harry Ford has the job of taking out the dodgy ones.

Ive seen it before and been non-plussed, but now we have the PJ setup again the movie makes a whole lot more sense, especially when the viewing screen is 3m across.

Darryl Hannah's best role I reckon, especially the writhing dying bit.:D

Also of note was Wiliam Sanderson as JF Sebastion, playing a character he later came to perfect as EB Farnum in Deadwood.

I just watched The Mist which is based on a Steven King novel. I thought it was very good. The movie has plenty of tension and kept me interested.

By the way thanks for sparking up a boring Monday morning 2sheds ;)

Dr X,

The Mist was pretty much canned on it's release but I thought, although it is a pretty flawed movie, it was worth the price of admission and has an ending of great power...

On the same night I watched 30 days of Night. based on a Graphic Novel (what isn't these days?) it's a ripper variation on the vampire theme. very exciting and creepy and very, very violent. Loved it.

Movie highlight for the month has to be Into the Wild. Sean Penn has matured into a stunning filmmaker and this film, based on a true story, is further evidence of his huge talent. This is a very thoughful, moving and beautifully written and acted film. See it NOW!

Cheers

Last night watched Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" on HD

Enjoyed it a lot, again.

My teenage boys were so-so about it.

I saw it at the movies when it first came out 21 years ago.

No real ending. A bit like the Vietnam war...

Now I want to catch up with Platoon again.

Anyone got Platoon on HD-DVD?

Hi Mr HP

I don't have it in HD, but I've enclosed a few of my analog shots from 1968 for comparison.;):D

Hi

yes. Sorry for going OT, but here's one of me just back with my newly acquired Aiwa Reel to Reel. (30 wpc Vs 4 from Akai, and with a phono stage for the Pioneer turntable) after RnR leave in Hong Kong, playing my mates the latest from the Doors and the Electric Flag...

Cheers

Just watched Poseidon. Typical Hollywood schmaltzy action crap. But it kept us entertained for an hour or so picking out the flaws in their ship stuff. :rolleyes:

Tonight's viewing.

Mulholland Drive

I didnt get it the first time, and I certainly didnt get it the 2nd. But it wasn't a total loss, the gorgeous Naomi Watts gets a lot of screen time, and she beats Salma any day of the week. :)

Hello all,

Sorry to inform Platoon is not available on either HD format. :)

Unclemack, yes Into the Wild was a simply beautiful and captivating film. I spoke briefly about it a while back in another thread, although i would have imagined no one took notice at the time. see here. Also did a review for it linked within my sig that directs to my blog.

As for what i have seen recently....well this week on TV i watched the Fox Classics 'Larger than Life' week of movies, with such great movies as Ghandi, Schindler's List, To Kill a Mockingbird (last night's one MacArthur i most certainly could not sit through..zzzz).

Prior to that, on HD formats i watched...Letters from Iwo Jima, Ratatouille, Pixar Short Films, Cars, Ronin, Dog Day Afternoon, We Were Soldiers and a couple other ones. Plenty of others to come, with about 100 so HD films to get through.
