Threads 1984. Traumatised me as a child so I have no clue why I just watched it again.

Chilling. I shan’t sleep


I think it was worse back in the 80s when most of us fully expected the events of the movie to play out for real. Now it's more of a history lesson of what could have been. Back then it was like watching a monster film where monsters actually existed for real.

True. I was 12 when I saw it when it came out. I’d read the Amityville Horror and was on to Salem’s Lot but it was Threads that freaked me out.

Was explaining to my students before summer what it was like growing up under the threat of nuclear annihilation when they were complaining about COVID-19. They thought it was a big traditional bomb and now I’m thinking about showing them the film.

Hitchcock - Lifeboat (1944) - I thought it was a somewhat subversive film for the time. I'd be interested in finding out how it was received at the time, but not enough to actually find some old reviews to find out.

The Pink Panther -- the first of, I gather, a series. Dull. Claudia Cardinale flirting with David Niven goes on and on and on.

Never again!

THE SCARLET BLADE 1964 -- Not really much in the swash but lot of buckles on display and I like watching it now and then, especially for Lionel Jeffries who is very watchable as a pragmatic military officer who has problems with his daughter's support for the king. Damn that Cromwell.
One funny thing in this is that Charles is portrayed by Robert Rietty who has one line in his own voice. But he dubbed so many movies-you have heard his voice in everything--he did Blofeld in For Your Eyes Only.

Herbert Lom is great in Return of the Pink Panther and Strikes Again--he steals his scenes. He was so good at comedy even though one usually thinks of him in more dramatic stuff (the same is true of Lionel Jeffries. He is hilarious in the Spy With A Cold Nose--which has a Cardinale lookalike Daliah Lavi)

You want bad? Watch INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU 1968.
That one is so bad.
Only one scene made me chuckle where he keeps changing seats.

DareDevel --- I am not a great fan of the Marvel universe, but this I really liked. I especially liked his moral self questioning. The ironic part is that I watched this so that I could watch Electra. We'll see if I like that as well, but am happy that I decided to watch this.
Have you seen the TV Show? It's waaaay better.

These have dated badly, especially the later Sellers movies.
i have soft spt for the first film, but the next one A Shot in the Dark is the best.

Time Table (1956)

Nifty little crime film. Starts off as a heist movie (with a particularly clever train robbery that nets half a million bucks), turns into a procedural as a railroad detective and an insurance investigator try to track down the crooks, then, with a major plot twist at the half hour mark, turns into film noir. Watch for Jack Klugman in an early, small role; you can't miss him. Recommended.

TERROR FROM THE YEAR 5000 1958 -- Not a bad idea but it has lots of deficiencies including a soundtrack that seems to borrow tracks from Leave it to Beaver for some dramatic moments.

FIRST MEN IN THE MOON 1964 -I always considered this the lest memorable of Harryhausen films--but that's because it follows the book-there isn't that much value for his animation and too many moon creatures were required.
This is partly a homage to George Melies--I like the oxygen-making machine. Those tanks of colored water were neat visually.

Evil Dead (2013) - humourless bore fest. Buckets of blood do not make an engaging movie. Switched it off. Stick to EDII or Army of Darkness.

I was at a loose end and wanted to watch something a bit light as i didn't want to get into anything. Space Truckers was on my Amazon list
and i hadn't seen it before, so i thought why not.

My god! That was a terrible movie. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
