To me, this is the sign of a GREAT movie...I will have to rent it.

For me the movie that most fills that description is Equus. This is a VERY intense and intelligent film adapted from Tony winning play. Richard Burton is incredible in it. It opens your mind and leads to re-examining what motivates and rases passion in you. Reccomend seeing it in a darkened room so your entire focus is on this movie.

Jane, I loved RAISE THE RED LANTERN.  I also saw it a number of years ago - it was haunting and beautifully filmed. 

Sorry you weren't crazy about MILLIONS, Barry.  I loved it.  I didn't think it was particularly for children although kids certainly played a large role in the film.  Oh well, we can't all agree on everything!

I forgot to mention one other..."The Haunting" based on the Shirley Jackson story.  There was a remake a few years back with Liam Neeson and boy did that one stink.  But this version, the original, made back in 1964 or so is such a classic haunted house story.  The Steinway Mansion reminded me of "Hill House" in a way.  I loved this movie.  It was the first tape I ever bought of a movie when VCR's first came out back in the 1980's.  You don't want to know how much I paid for it.  And it was VHS not beta.  I still cringe when I think of the price.

I liked the movie No Body's Fool with Paul Newman, Bruce Willis, Jessica Tandy, the actor who played Truman Capote, etc... - just a great cast of actors from start to finish.

The movie was about a man who witnessed physical abuse in his childhood and his struggle not to do the things his father did. Just a beautiful story of struggle, redemption, and resolution.

"Nobody's Fool" was filmed up in Beacon.  Bruce Willis stayed at one of the inns in Cold Spring.  If you go to the McDonald's on Route 9 in Fishkill, a movie poster hangs on the wall with Paul Newman's autograph.

I like that movie also.

For those same reasons - plus not having to freeze my backside off, fight traffic or pay outrageous ticket, food and beer prices - I look forward every year to NOT going to any pro football games.  The couch beckons, the fridge is stocked and the throne awaits.

Barry,

A movie that has haunted me for 25 years is Roman Polanski's The Tenant.

Truly believable, disturbed, psychological thriller.

assume the throne is for time outs....I do my best morning browsing there with my portable....

Re: Victor Mature - When I had my house in Laguna there was a house at the end of my street that was formerly owned by Victor Matures lover.....
Oh, and a block away was the house of Robert Eglund (Freddie)...no big deal...just thought about it when i saw the comments above.


I added The Tenant to the queue!

Frankie Baby:

 

  Since you have decided to enter into a serious discussion, I admit the fading memory and have resorted to Google.  Here are the facts:

 

Maciste Against Hercules In The Vale Of Woe [VHS] (1964)
An outrageous Roman orgy of muscles and mirth abounds as two shifty 20th-century wrestling promoters mistakenly land their time machine 7,000 years in the past. After inventing the cha-cha and the wheel, the duo meets strongmen Hercules (Frank Gordon) and Maciste (Kirk Morris), Circe the sorceress, a talking pig, a minotaur, and Franco and Ciccio, a hit Italian comedy team. Dubbed in English.
Category: Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Cast: Kirk Morris

 

  Back when I was a shiftless, lazy college student, my friends and I would occasionally take a detour, missing the Major Deegan and Manhattan College, and catch a Hercules movie triple feature in Times Square.  (You know my compatriots personally, and you may imagine that we engaged in uncontrollable laughter, even during the serious parts.)  I believe that Kirk Morris was actually Italian, but I will have to resort to Google again to verify this important point.  No Steve Reeves, and no Victor Mature in this campy Hercules classic.

 

  I learned ageless rules for living from Hercules movies - the reason why I am the man I am today.

 

  By the way, weren't Steve and Victor real brothers?

 

-Guillermo
