Thread: movie reco

  1. #41
    Not a movie but I was going through some 80s and 90s songs just now as I miss that era...

    This video and song is pretty powerful in my opinion.



    Now this next album was released in 1983 but people have no clue.
    They think it was in the 90s or early 2000s and others think it sounds like the 60s.
    It is truly a great album that seems to cross over many eras.
    I still love to listen to it today in 2020.

    As a senior in high school in the mid 80's, I remember that our graduating class was so apathetic that one of the other classes (juniors IIRC) won the homecoming float contest which normally the school awards to the senior class (I heard about it from a friend) by default . But since only a very very small percentage of Seniors showed up and participated in making the float and cheering it on, they had no choice but to award it to a different class.
    Many people from that era just got on with it - I'm glad I was part of that (fuck participation awards and group think).

    Wasn't a big Bush fan, but Glycerine was one of the best songs of the 90s.

    Movie reco: Tenet (2020)

  6. #46
    Not sure how I missed this movie from 2009.
    Caught it today on one of the movie channels.
    Based on a True Story.
    The musical score and slow methodical burn could hypnotize you into an emotional breakdown.
    97% chance of eyes watering.
    I was fine till my wife decided to cut up a bunch of onions in the kitchen.
    Screw You Hollywood and your damn powers over emotional feelings!
    And your never ending use of Richard Gere in Dramas.

    Thanks Monet. I caught some of No Mercy yesterday (on the free over-the-air Movies! channel) which had Richard Gere in it as luck would have it. It seemed OK, but I am mentioning it only because of the coincidence of your reco having the same person as a main character in the movie.

    MeTV has been running this show on Saturdays for awhile now.
    I got the complete DVD Set of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century today.
    The first episode has the James Bond Style Intro and feels a bit more like a TV Movie.
    A Great TV Movie IMO.
    That episode was enjoyable and this show has William Conrad's voice along with Mel Blanc.
    Gil Gerard reminds me of Robert Urich and I've always been a fan of them both.
    Erin Gray... Nuff Said!
    The next episode is "Planet of the Slave Girls" and features Jack Palance!

    It also has Buck Rogers from 1939 meeting Buck Rogers from 1979!
    1939: "I've been doing that sort of thing since before you were born, Captain."
    1979: "You think so, huh?"
    1939: "Young Man... I know so."

    You can find these on ebay and I got mine for 30 dollars in like new condition.
    Really happy with it.
    After researching a bit it appears the show was tied for 1st with Laverne and Shirley and Benson.
    After the 4th episode they took a break to build a bigger set and props.
    The second season got delayed from an Actors Strike.
    The show never recovered in the ratings.
    Brings me back to my childhood as I love this show.
    The second intro that was primarily used is probably one of the best TV Intros ever!
    However, I am enjoying it even more today.
    I didn't watch much of Avengers or that Wolverine garbage and what I did see has nothing on shows like this.
    I'm about to buy the entire DVD set of BattleStar Galactica which is another great show from the late 70s!

    Yes, thanks Monet I recall seeing it on MeTV - I think a couple months ago I saw the episode that mostly took place in a casino.

    I could be wrong here but I think this Pilot Episode was actually released in Theaters.
    Either way it got me all geeked up!
    These days, the FemiNazis and BLMs can't handle this type of show.

    It wouldn't surprise me. It was popular enough where they made a pinball machine based on it that I really like (you know you've made it when they make a pinball license based on a person or show):

    Pretty Cool Pinball Game!

    I just watched the episode you are talking about.
    "Vegas in Space"

    Rogers has a pretty good quote in that episode.
    After he wins over 9000 credits he says:

    Two Great things about playing 10 11 against a computer.
    One... You don't have to worry about the computer dealing from the bottom of the deck.
    Two... You don't have to tip!!

    Kinda Geeked up over here with TV shows as I am depressed from modern day TV Shows and Movies.
    I just fired up my complete DVD set of VEGAS.
    Gotta love Dan Tanna!
    My only gripe with the show is that after season one the episodes seemed to get redundant.
    That being said, who wouldn't want to live next door to Circus Circus and drive your car into your Living Room?
    And... having milk delivered to your door every morning while a Show Girl works your telephone!

    Yes, you get to see a lot of old Vegas when watching that series. The walls of time and space cannot be breached - but at least there is film to see what once was and will never be again.
