Surviving the Game is a "remake" of The Most Dangerous Game (1932).
I typically watch your videos right when I get up in the morning, so I guess I didn't catch the dry humor.
No worries. "Humor" might be a stretch.
I have actually never seen The Rules of the Game, M, Army of Shadows, or The Red Shoes, and have been meaning to see all of them, so maybe I will join you in this film journey. I also rented 8 1/2 once and found myself unable to make it all the way through, so maybe I'll try that one again, as well.
I saw The Red Shoes around the time Black Swan came out. It's really good. You have to fight your way past the first 20 min or so but afterwards it gets really involving.
Peter Lorre's performance in the last 10 minutes of M is fantastic, and is definitely worth watching.
Doug mispronounced "subtitles."
Actually, he didn't. I just cut the next line out. Doug will never disappoint.
So it's just me and him that are juvenile?
Good ep guys, personally I don't think your missing much with West Side Story Patrick. I don't think its bad per se but nothing ever really pulled me in personally, kinda like Les Miserables, some of the songs are good but they just never stop, their almost never seems to be a good flowMy own movie resolutions- catch some more classic westerns, see more classic movies in the theatres (one of the positives of recent digital upgrades at the movies) and attend my first ever F this movie festival (yay!)
I'd disagree. The intensity in which Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise move the camera during the musical scenes echoes early Scorsese and was a major influence on him.I think it's a stunning film and if you're a fan of Twin Peaks, both Ben Horne and Dr. Jacoby are in it. ;)Funny how Robert Wise made The Haunting between this and The Sound of Music. The guy had range for a good long stretch.
And later Star Trek: The Motion Piczzzzzzzzzzz...
West Side Story is one of the best musicals of all time. It's not work to watch it once you get started. The lead actor is terrible but even that is part of the enjoyment.
West Side Story is certainly way better than Les Miserables that it was compared to earlier, if we're talking about the movie adaptations in both cases (what else would we be talking about on a movie website?). I really like it. The lead actor may be bad, but Natalie Wood makes up for that.Haha, oh, Star Trek...You're so boring.
I'm going to stop reading the comments before going to bed. This thread resulted in a dream where Scorsese passed away at age 108 and I went on a road trip with his wife. I was wearing a Cincinnati Reds hat (???) and was a gentleman the whole time. We stopped and visited Harrison Ford and Kate Capshaw in New York...
You know what it has been ages since I rewatched West Side Story so I'll give it another chance Adam and Cameron, I do like Robert's Sound of Music quite a bit.
