Movie Lovers Thread

Recommended Posts

This is the Movie Lovers Thread. It has been created by me since the Music Lovers thread is so popular. :)

Now for the rules...

keep it clean (no porno's) however it can be mature in nature. (X rated just not XXX rated etc) Keep the entries or links in a spoiler to help keep the thread easily navigated. It can be links, reviews, recommendations, thoughts, etc.

Yay, a new topic. Hmm okay.

Which Movies are my favorites. I'll make  for this moment a Top 10 List.

10. Interstellar - C. Nolan

9. TLotR - The Return of the King - P. Jackson (german Title - Die Rückkehr des Königs)

8. The Dark Knight - C. Nolan

7. 2001 - A Space Odyssey - S. Kubrick (german Title - 2001 - Odyssee im Weltraum)

6. Once upon a Time in the West - S. Leone (german Title - Spiel mir das Lied vom Tod)

5. Clockwork Orange - S. Kubrick (german Title - Uhrwerk Orange)

4. Inception - C. Nolan

3. The Godfather II - F.F. Coppola (german Title - Der Pate 2)

2. The Godfather - F.F. Coppola (german Title - Der Pate)

1. The Shawshank Rendemption - F. Darabont (german Title - Die Verurteilten)

These Movies i watched very often. But there are too many Movies, to put them all in a Top 10 List. Some of them i watched in the original Version, but it's hard to understand, i do this mostly after i 've seen them in my native Language, it's easier for me to follow it <.<'

LOL... glad you liked the addition of a new topic... :D

I did like 2001 The Space Odyssey as well as the Godfathers (not sure which is my favorite :P)  Clockwork Orange was a bit on the brutal side, entertaining but strange as well. I believe I was missing some points due to different culture. (I am an alien after all :P)

Hehe, you're an Alien, I am just a mild mannered Succubus. But sometimes it is crazy ,what a lot different Movie genres could be wake up the interest.

A few weeks ago, i watched ST - Wrath of Khan, Die Hard 1-3 (4.0 and 5 I'm not talking about :/ ) and T2. A Week later the Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Edition in one row. So different is my interest.

Here a Voice compare from Bruce Willis

In Germany there was a very popular italian Comedy Duo, named Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill. They started with a new Synchro (Voice Acting) with the Spaghetti Western - They call me Trinity (in german - Die Linke und die Rechte Hand des Teufels) in 1981, the first Version was released in 1970 with a serious Voice Acting. The Movies of this Dou were very successful in Germany, Suisse and Austria with the funny one liners and the slapstick weaponless fight Elements. Here some other Movies with the Duo.

Watch out! We're Mad - Zwei wie Pech und Schwefel - ... altrimenti arrabbiamo! 

One with their slapstick fights

Spoiler

 

All the Way, Boys! - Zwei Himmelhunde auf dem Weg zur Hölle - ... piu forte, Ragazzi!

Double Trouble - Vier Fäuste in Rio - Non c'è due senza quattro

Who finds a Friend finds a Treasure - Zwei Asse trumpfen aus - Chi trove un Amico, trova un tescoro

 

Outside from Europe, they would be more unknown. Compareable with  the - Smokey and The Bandit -  humour.

I know i haven't mentioned LOTR yet but that's because i've been Gandalf on the web since 2007 and i tend to refrain from self promotion.I'm very shy...  

A wizard forgets never, nor he is with the thought of being elsewhere, he remeber  precisely whe he means to.

I love the Trilogy.  One of the reasons, why i play Role Play Games,

I'm not much for movies anymore, but I still have my huge stash of DVDs. The internet has taken over most of my entertainment now.

^ I haven't see that in a very long time... :)  My dam sister wore out that dam VHS lol 

DVD stashes are excellent. Many times, they have movies that are no longer available through streaming or have horrible You-Tube uploads... :( So sad that many excellent movies have gotten lost due to advancements in technology. Really bad coming from VHS to DVD. Tons of movies were lost during that time. I spent over a year searching for a DVD version of some movie (I forget the name but think it was Unico or something like that) for my sister. She loved that during her chiildhood and couldn't find a copy when an old broken VHS tape was found in the attic. (VHS and Attics don't go well together... the heat is very bad for them) IN any case I ended up finding a copy but it was in a totally different region. We bought it used (yea Amazon you can find all sorts of shit on that site lol) I had to rip it just to be able to give her a copy of that rip that she could use in her DVD player.

Any movie buff should keep their DVD collections safe. ;) The same rule apply to music lovers and records ;) Except usually most music is transferred over to new mediums pretty well unless you have special versions (Concert, or specialty music ) Those specialty versions, rarely ever get re-stamped (new records) much less transferred to a new medium (8 tracks, CDs, or digital downloads)

@Endgameaddiction

I have to see Apocalypto,looks interesting.

@ritualclarity

Moving from 8track music to cassette was very painful,not to mention expensive,i gave up trying to copy them over because the track changes were so annoying.

@Gandalftw 8 track was the worst medium ever for music or any sound delivery. Someone had to think the swamping "track" was something great, however, it isn't like changing a tune on your CD. It would jump in the middle of another song. Phonograph, Tape was the best for that time. Phonographs are still better. "pure" sound if you have a good record. That is compared to most songs you get today. (not lossless) Phonograph or record players are "lossless" by default. You can hear greater highs and lows than you can on your typical song you download these days from Apple, Google or Amazon.

The sad thing is old Beta max had better video quality but lose to the VHS. Those that really wanted quality would get those record sized Lazer disks. Personally I do like the direction (to a  point) where the movies are going. (all digital easily transferable) just wish it was more DRM less than it is these days.

I had a shitload of 8tracks that i listened to while driving,at home it was all vinyl.By tape i assume you mean reel to reel?

When i moved  to cassette it was my car stereo i was talking about.When i was younger i spent a lot of time in my car/van/motorcycle.

Yeah i had a quadraphonic stereo at home which was pretty amazing.All my albums were like new for i handled them by the edges and kept them clean.I would buy two albums of music that i thought might one day be important.I still have a large box of albums from 60's and 70's in storage that have never been played. 

Yes i remember the lazer discs,i used to repair the players for people.I would buy up every player i could find,working or not,for parts.I finally sold all my lazer discs and players to a guy for 500 bucks,wish i hadn't now,oh well...

I watched these old Films very often, more than other Trash-Comedy-Movies from today. Here is the first of 5 Movies.
