I was wondering what kind of films we like.

Yesterday I watched 'The flight of the Phoenix' which is a fantastic film. I'll mention now, not that pile of remade shite, but the original. It's been some years since I last saw it, but it's never lost its grip. When you look at it, it's a film that could be done on stage, as it never really goes anywhere. The film is a drama played out in one spot and its excitement and drama come from the interaction of the characters, most notably the old, intransigent pilot, played by James Stewart and the equally intransigent aircraft designer, played by Hardy Kruger. Their head banging contest is a masterclass in acting and this is possibly Stewart's finest performance. Kruger is also brilliant and very watchable. Add to those two such actors as George Kennedy, Ian Bannen, Peter Finch, Richard Attenborough, Ernie Borgnine and Ronald Fraser and it adds up to a cast you couldn't afford in the modern world.

Over here cinema-going is surprisingly healthy with numbers going up in recent years. Due I suppose to blockbusters with great SFX best viewed on the big screen.

 Here the theatres are modern in every way, it's just the cost to take a whole family to enjoy it that is the biggest problem. The seats also aren't like they use to be. More crammed than before and hard as bricks. Most theatres now show between 4-6 movies or more at a time. I still prefer drive-ins but they are now as scarce as hens teeth.

Another good movie was on TV last night called Unbroken. I had seen it before but was well worth a second watch.

Just watched another good English film, which I doubt anyone has seen or will see. It is called  Film Stars Don't die in Liverpool." It covers the last few years in the life of Gloria Graham. The main characters are played by Annette Bening and Jamie Bell. It's not a classic, but a film that tells a story few knew about. 

Jamie Bell is of course remembered for his role in Billy Elliot.  Annette Bening deserved an Oscar nomination, but Streep got one instead.

The film Billy Elliot was a jewel of a film. The first time I saw it I thought, where did they get this kid? He was a great dancer and for a first role, a brilliant actor. Did you know Jamie Bell almost got the role of Spiderman?

 Now you are pushing Chick flicks for us to watch?? Never heard of any of these actors or the movie. Did watch some of the promo clips though. Was the movie produced only in 8mm format?
Happy Easter to you all.

Has anyone seen the movie The Shawshank Redemption? One of the better movies for sure?

I don’t normally like prison films but this was definitely the exception to the rule. Very entertaining, with a great sting in the tail.

 How about the Green Mile then for a different story line and ending?
