Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom - Birdie. Great acting but a very intense movie. 

Two very good acting performances.   I give it a birdie also.

Here's a topic for a brief discussion. Name all the famous movies you've never seen (as in sat down and watched - clips on YouTube or whatever don't count).

My list…

  • The Shining
  • The Godfather
  • Casablanca
  • Gone with the Wind
  • The Sound of Music
  • Clockwork Orange

I mean, most of them are old. I don't know of any recent "great" movies I haven't seen.

But the top two (or four or whatever), I should watch at some point. At least the second one. The first, meh.

Casablanca and Gone With The Wind are on my list as well.

I'll add

The Color Purple

Dr Strangelove ( I own the damn thing, but I repeatedly fall asleep after ten minutes)

Seabiscuit

The Blind Side

I have also never watched any of The Fast And Furious series

Never felt I had like six hours to watch the Godfather, and I couldn't care less about The Shining. I've seen so many articles about it, etc. that I know everything that happens.

I guess I will issue you a Challenge for once; no badge though, just something to improve your golf game. Watch The Godfather by the end of February.

I've seen all of those.

Okay, The Shining is good, but it's been copied so many times now that none of it seems original anymore. And unless you've been living under a rock you know what happens. 

The Godfather holds up very well. 

Casablanca also holds up well. Which is surprising. Considering it was made only 2 years or so after Gone With The Wind. 

Gone With The Wind = I'm sorry. This movie sucks so much ass it's hard to understand why anyone ever liked it. The acting in it is on par with the Twilight Series or any daytime soap opera. Yes, it had an enormous budget for the day it was made. I think adjusted for inflation it is still the most expensive movie ever made. Yes, it was the highest grossing film for 25 years and adjusted for inflation still holds that title. BUT MAN, THE MOVIE SUCKS! I understand why its a part of cinema history. I think it was also the first time a black person was ever nominated for an academy award.  You may want to fact check me on that. Anyway, I get it. BUT THE MOVIE SUCKS! The acting is so over-the-top, it's acted the way people make fun of the way people over act. ... Okay, moving on. 

The Sound of Mucus = Again, I apologize because I understand the historical ramifications of this film. But it isn't that great. Look, I love musicals. I do. But this is way too much kids singing. 

Clockwork Orange = I get why this movie is considered great, or at least important. But it isn't fun to watch. It's disturbing and there are no likeable characters. I know its commenting on society, basically saying that neither the left nor the right are any good. Just mirrors of each other. Both horrible in their own way. Again, it's no fun and not a movie that gives you a lot of hope for society.

I’ve never seen or wanted to see The Godfather. I hate mob movies, Scarface, Goodfellas etc. I’m half Italian and have had relatives who thought they were mob but were really just pathetic humans. Clockwork Orange was one of the worst movies I’ve ever sat through. The others are good to great movies for me. Casablanca is one of my all time favorites and I can quote most of it. I know every song in The Sound of Music and still have a crush on Julie Andrews.

Never saw Frozen or Frozen II. Some Like It Hot is a timeless comedy with MM. the rest are snoozers.

I’ve never has the desire to see any of the Fast and Furious movies or movies like that. Stoner movies are not that funny to me although I’ve seen a few.

   Ooh, thanks, I haven't watched that one in ages. 

 

  I finally watched the Godfather for the first time a couple years back.  I'll say this, it's better than the Deer Hunter.

I can only stand that movie like 1-2x a year. It is a slow burn. I know some can watch that movie all the time, but I don't find it that rewatchable. I prefer a movie like Casino or Goodfella's as way more rewatchable than The Godfather. 

For me, here is my list... 

1. Casablanca
2. Gone with the Wind
3. Chinatown
4. Clockwork Orange
5. The Big Lebowski

I looked up a few lists of top favorite movies of all time. I think I did a pretty good job so far seeing a lot of he movies on the list.

I recently started to watch old mobster movies like the Godfather, Scarface, Goodfellas, Donny Briscoe, etc.  

IMHO, the Godfather (all three films) is a must see if you like any crime drama movies.

All of those are worth a watch. I suppose they won't resonate as much if you are not of a certain age (meaning: old). But if they were released in your youth you may appreciate them more. just MHO.

    • Didn't @iacassay here, multiple times IIRC, to setup left of center? Maybe there wasn't enough room though. That looked like it hurt. Comments said stitches and slight concussion. I guess I would pad that corner to prevent it from happening again. Dude in the video, I laughed, I admit it and I'm sorry I did at your expense, but man, that was funny.  
    • Then that putt wasn’t going to miss. You are applying a single constraint to a situation that has no such constraint. An increase in luck decreases the relevance of skill.
    • I knew it was based on a commercial but never seen it, for some reason, this is going around. I knew I could have just looked it up but never bothered. I also learned that Roy Kent is based on a real player Roy Keen or something like that. The bit in one of episodes with Wembley stadium and old Wembley stadium and Coach Lasso not knowing the pitch was different sizes was funny. It's also on brand that the fold up bicycle in the show is made by Brompton - I would guess people might call it the Apple of fold up bikes. Schmigadoon! started out pretty good, middle was good too, but faltered at the end. Netflix's second season of Into the Night was just as propulsive as the first season. Reservation Dogs continues to be so good. Undecided on HBO's Scenes From a Marriage.
    • Won't the pro have a much closer/tighter dispersion?  So let's say that the bump moves a ball an inch, but that 50% of the amateur's missed putts miss by more than an inch? In those cases, hitting the bump will miss both ways.
    • Just finished season 4 of Slasher. On Shudder. Bloodiest season yet!
  • Today's Birthdays
