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

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

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par.

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.

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.

    • As the case move forward, the LIV golfers will be able to get discovery, which means they'll get e-mails, documents, etc. from the PGA Tour. They'll also be able to depose PGA Tour people. Right now, all they have is their own e-mails, their own statements, etc. They'll hope to be able to get more evidence to support their claims through that process.  Additionally, to get a TRO, they needed to show a likelihood of success on the merits. That's a fairly high bar. When it comes to trial, they'll only need to show through a preponderance (more than 50%) of the evidence that their claims will succeed. It's less of a bar than needed for the TRO. That said, the judge is very skeptical of their claims. In front of this judge, it does seem like they are unlikely to win. Right now, they are probably exploring whether to voluntarily dismiss the case and file a slightly different version somewhere else.
    • What does something like that even mean? They want to be as successful as they can? Yeah, no kidding. But the PGA Tour is run by the players, the members, who write and ratify their own rules, and hire people to enforce them and engage on their behalf with sponsors, etc. The PGA Tour largely does. The two quoted statements really contradict each other a bit - if the PGA Tour wanted "all the power" they'd be branching out across the globe far more than they are. Also, the PGA Tour granted releases for their members to play in Saudi Arabia, but only when the LIV tour was formed with events in the United States was there any real action taken. Well, others have other very real problems with LIV. And I am referring to more than just the source of funding.
    • The more I think about it - LIV isn't great, , but the PGA Tour seemingly wants all the power and that isn't great either. Golf is due for a major restructuring of power, the game doesn't just exist in America and it should be played equally on the highest level across the entire world. The only real problem I have with LIV is the dumb format. I would like to see half the season played regionally, USA, Europe, Asia, then the second half the year played globally with the top players from all of the regions, one tournament every other week similar to Formula 1. Every large region gets a single major event, and then The Masters b/c its special. LIV gets the middle eastern region .
    • This has not happened to me ... yet. I mark my ball with a pink line, and I've never seen anybody else do that. It makes it easy to identify which ball is fine. That said, I think if you play enough golf, it will happen at some point, so I'm betting it will happen to me. Hopefully, it doesn't cost me too much when it does.
