Just seen 'No Escape' with Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan, very intense and brutal movie, it doesn't let up all the way through this flic, after seeing this I won't be taking any kind of a job in any third world country any time soon that's for sure....Jerry

Watched Django Unchained last night for the 2nd time.
Ended up watching it as the other half has never seen it and i was telling her how good it was.
Very good film

Hi I have just watched (A Christmas Horror Story) and I have to say it was very good as I'm not into horror movies....
Story line was very good and the ending was brilliant...I will give it a 7/10 for entertainment...

Although slightly off track may I ask if any of you movie buffs have watched a movie from way back called Harold and Maude? What is known as a "black", as in dark sense of humour, comedy. 21 Year old male attends funerals of people he doesn't know and while at one of these meets up with, and befriends, a 79 year old woman. Sounds weird and perhaps not very interesting but if you haven't seen it and have a ...... weird? ... sense of humour, then try to watch it. Music by Cat Stevens. Think this movie has become a classic amongst many movie goers.

Sorry if I've hijacked this thread but am curious to hear what others who have seen this movie, if any, have to say about it. Just hope it hasn't become ....... dated.

Hi ranetian !
I saw it back in the 70's and must say I still think about it sometimes...
Loved the way Harold antagonized his mother with all his "weird" stunts.
=====================================================
You can watch more of Hal Ashby's movies which were all great: The Last Detail (Jack Nicholson), Coming Home (John Voight and Jane Fonda), and Being There, which was Peter Sellers's last movie and also about Death.
Or aren't they more like a "Celebration of Life"... ?

Ashby was truly great with actors -- Lee Grant won Best Supporting Actress for Shampoo, Jane Fonda and Jon Voight won Oscars for Coming Home, Melvyn Douglas won for Being There. Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid were nominated for Last Detail, Jack Warden was nominated for Shampoo, Bruce Dern and Penelope Milford were nominated for Coming Home, Peter Sellers was nominated for Being There. That's 4 acting wins and 10 nominations in six years (1973-1979).

=====================================================
Maude (Ruth Gordon) was also "fantastic" as Minnie Castevet in Roman Polanski's 1968 movie Rosemary's Baby wich I also highly recommend...

And don't worry about viewing "dated" movies as some are truly "Chefs-d'oeuvre/Masterpieces" and withstand the test of "Time"...

The 33 7/10

Started off quite good but sort of dragged on a bit. I was surprised at the end where none of the miner guys got any compensation and no criminal charges were brought against the owners

Went to my favorite movie theater the other night to see SPECTRE 007 the latest Bond flic and it was pretty good but not great....I liked SKYFALL better, it had more of a story line I think, this theater I go to have the most comfortable seats ever and you can also have sandwiches or salads etc and wash it all down with a big 22oz mug or pitcher of draft beer, is that great or what.!!!...
