Anjelina Jolie, I thought was especially good.

Eastwood is a rather amazing talent. Actor, producer, director, musician, composer.

Yes those Eastwood westerns are classics - as are the many films he made with Don Siegel....Dirty Harry, The Beguiled etc. And of course let no one forget his perfect foil to Richard Burton in the comically outrageous, but thoroughly gripping war film Where Eagles Dare.

It plays occasionally on The Western Channel (Starz) ch 529.
It's definately spaghetti western in feel. James Coburn is an ex-Irish Republican army revolutionary. Rod Steiger plays a Mexican bandit. Leone preferred the title "Duck, You Sucker!" It takes place during the Mexican Revolution. Needless to say, there are a lot of explosions.
It's the second movie that is part of a loosely connected epic called "Once Upon A Time Trilogy" Hey, it's Leone...pretty good.

Hey, watchinalltha....have you seen "My Name Is Nobody" ?? It stars Henry Fonda & Terence Hill. It's produced and co-written by Leone & it's classic Leonne but done as a dark comedy.
Plenty of blood & guts with a comic twist....but it's not a goofy comedy. Here's a link about the movie for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Warning: SPOILER ALERT !! don't read the plot summary if you hate having a movie ruined by reading the ending!!

did people say, "Duck, you Sucker" during the Mexican Revolution?
that sounds like something from a Shaft movie!
how about, "hey, mutha, don't step on my coonskin cap, homeboy!"
or, " i got my Colt 45 so don't U punk me up, yo, I be pimpin' yo lady!"

...what the world needs now...

It probably translates different from the Italian. But the movie ends with a large explosion and that title line across the screen.

I just watched "Casabalanca". Has to be one of the greatest made. That film has everything, conflict, love, hate, cynicism, belief, truth, lies, honor, characters, actors, personalities, great lines, music. .."you must remember this"... The makers packed alot of stuff into it.

Favorite line..."Round up the usual suspects". (if I could choose!)

Bogey has made so many of my favorites:
Angels With Dirty Faces
The Maltese Falcon
Casablanca
The Big Sleep
To Have & Have Not
The Treasure Of Sierra Madre
The African Queen

and one of my Holiday favorites:
We're No Angels

Anybody have blu-ray? I managed to get the player. Have to say movies in blu-ray are stunners. I'm looking now for some rock ones. Neil Young is supposed to have some out I think.

I have today seen The Reader - a fascinating study of the way in which the consequences of the Holocaust have been visited upon subsequent generations in Germany. Kate Winslet excels as a former SS guard who pays an increasingly heavy price as she grows older. It really is to her very great acting credit that the viewer cannot help but feel some sympathy for her character. And the point that the guilt for what happened must have extended well beyond those who were actually convicted is very powerfully made.

john..looking forward to seeing that one you noted...

Last night I took one out of the vaults (we watch a lot of movies at home rather than in the theater). Maybe some of you have seen it...the "Big Chill",nice ensemble casting. The film makes you reflect about how people go about living their lives and dreams.I thought the film holds up very well after all the years.

Just heard that Kate Winslet has won two Golden Globe awards - one for The Reader and one for the soon to be released Revolutionary Road....not bad for the lass from Reading!

I'll probably be seeing those...

And I just read about a film that's getting screened here by Terence Davies. "Of Time and the City". It's his look at Liverpool when he was growing up. From the looks of it, personally he isn't too enamored of the change.
