Re: Personal Influencial Films: The Impact and Why?

DRIVING MISS DAISY. This film captivates me. The combination of brilliant acting, great filmmaking, and a very touching story draws me close to this film. Nobody could EVER replace Morgan Freeman in...

Re: Short films

Two of my favorites are a claymation called CLOSED MONDAYS and a film by Robert Swarthe called KICK ME. Kick me was actually drawn on the film frames. Very detailed and quite funny. There's a neat...

Carpenters I work with will use the phrase "I'm off to see the Wizard" (toilet reference)

Rufnek, you have aroused my curiosity, but I will leave it be, since it seems a sensitive subject.

You'd like the FRIGHTENERS, probably. John Astin was a great ghost in that one.
I think it's very underrated. One of Jackson's better film's (to me).

They aren't for everyone (Romero flicks). My wife hates them. She says they aren't scary...just stupid and violent. Oh well...I don't call "The Joy Luck Club" a powerhouse of entertainment, but she...

Re: is this too far?

There are a few places with profane names. There is a village in Europe named "F**K". Well, heck, for that matter, I've been up S**t Creek many times.

Re: is this too far?

I guess, to me, it's just the act of using a word that doesn't need to be used. It does nothing but diminish respect for the person saying it, and possibly annoys the person who hears it. It...

Re: is this too far?

Personally, I don't think there's ever a time when profanity is OK. Sure, I curse like a sailer, but that don't make it right. There's nothing "cool" about a child cursing and there's no possible way...

I didn't know that. It's pretty badly done, but at the time, it was probably on cue. It's interesting to watch. The ending is bizarre. I won't spoil it.

I was watching some old films and come across this little gem released in 1953. It's called "The Twonky". Just thought I'd toss it to you and let you decide what to do with the info. It's about a man...

I have to agree with you. The sequel was better, but it didn't have to try very hard. I, too didn't care much for Blair Witch. It was nothing but hype. I'll give it something for originality, but not...

PA was an OK movie for what they had in it ($15,000). I'd venture to say the next film will have a budget of 1-3 million , at least. A decent studio sound man is going to cost them $7000 a week (and...
