Been watching some good ol'fashioned movies the past few days. The past three nights, we chose three random movies: 'A Beautiful Mind' - (Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, 2001), 'The Cat and the Canary' - (Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard, 1939) and 'The Bodyguard' - (Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, 1992). Nothing mind-blowing there; three very diverse topics, but all of them good entertainment just before bedtime. Wink

Good call. I have been watching a number of old 1950's scifi movies lately. It's nice to remember before when scifi really was scifi.

Ha, don't get me started on 50's sci-fi movies. I love 'em!

Them! (about giant ants), Forbidden Planet (wasn't that one re-titled as "The Id" in the UK?), and one of my all-time favourites... Journey to the Center of the Earth (the James Mason version, not Brendan Fraser one).

I even remember watching "The Blob" one summer's evening at an open-air cinema in Forio d’Ischia during the early 70's. Steve McQueen dubbed into Italian, no less! Aah, the memories! Very Happy

Yes, one of the best movies of that age.

Bela Lugosi in 'The Bat' has always been one of my favourites. He had the best appearance of any Dracula. Admittedly, it wouldn't have worked in colour, but b/w has always created more atmosphere for 'horror' movies.
Other than that, I can watch pretty much any of the Herbert Lom chiller style movie any day of the week and Lon Chaney Jr as Wolfman.

In my teens I used to go to the cinema once maybe twice a week depending on the film but through the late 80's I think I saw pretty much every film released. Most of them were actually rubbish but, it was something that a lot of people did.
It was really cheap back then though and cinema's only used to have one screen (who else remembers those days) so couldn't show more than 3 films in any one week.

I know what you mean. Where I grew up, there was only one cinema with one screen, and they would show one film per week. They would change the movie on a Thursday or Friday. It was really frustrating when a successful movie was shown: they would hold it over for a second week!

I heard a few years later, they turned it into a bingo hall... Rolling Eyes

Exactly the same here. One cinema got pulled down to make way for a new ring road and the other ended up being a bingo hall although that's derelict as well now and no-one seems to know what's happening with it.

I try not to watch old movies anymore because it ruins my perception on how good I thought they were the first time I watched it. Couple of exceptions are Ghost Busters, Stripes, Somewhere in Time and The Amytiville horro

I watced the original 1960's Producers with Gene Wilder. It was probably a lot better than the original. No constant singing every twenty minutes.

I watched another Mel Brooks movie, High Anxiety. It's a spoof off of a bunch of Alfred Hitchcock's movies, Vertigo, Birds and psycho. The main theme is closest to Vertigo, as Mel Brooks has an unnatural fear of a great many things. It turns out to be from his parents arguing with one another over how to treat the younger version of Mel Brooks.

The second movie that I watched was Jim Henson's Dark Crystal. I haven't seen it before, but it was a decent movie.
