The demise of Jeff Conaway prompts me to admit that I've never seen Grease.

I do remember him from Taxi, though, and it's interesting how memory has played me false. I had the impression that he was very handsome when younger (although not really my type). Yet looking back now at old pics from Taxi, he was not nearly as attractive as I thought. To my eyes, that is.

My Aussie naturalisation/lobotomy will only be considered complete when they force me to watch, Clockwork Orange-style, The Man From Snowy River, Galipolli, Strictly Ballroom, Muriel's Wedding and Australia.
I'm happy to report they've not succeeded yet.
Although I'm not proud of the fact that Seņora honez got me to sit through the awful, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert once.
I did quite enjoy the happy-go-lucky tale of Romper Stomper though.



My deepest sympathy. ;) The Australian film industry is atrocious. Limit yourself to Picnic at Hanging Rock, Proof and (maybe) Lantana. Your missus may also enjoy My Brilliant Career. Everything else we have ever made here hasn't been worth the celluloid it is printed on. On behalf of all Aussies everywhere, I apologise to the rest of the world for inflicting our films upon you (and our soap operas too, for that matter.)

Anyway, my [American] boss laughed the other day when I confessed I have never seen Pulp Fiction (or anything else by Tarantino for that matter.) I limit myself to European arthouse these days. The last decent Hollywood film I saw was the Prestige. Could probably count the number of US films I have seen since that was released on one hand.

To wade into the debate above, I prefer "film", too. I can't stand that term, "movie" (or, for that matter, when people call a cinema a "theatre", a "picture theatre" or variants thereof.) :huh:

Don't be so hard on yourself. I seem to remember a couple of good 70s Aussie films apart from Picnic - The Club and The Odd Angry Shot, but it's been a while since I've seen them. Wolf Creek was kind of scary too.

None of them can touch Bouncer's Dream, of course.

why, you little...

Never seen Casablanca, The Great Escape, The Sound of Music or Mary Poppins. Of those the only one I'd be interested in is Casablanca.


I will let you in on a little secret... Despite what the Hollywood hype machine will tell you, Casablanca isn't all that good... It is just a hokey, heavy-handed WW2 propaganda film. I absolutely cringed when I saw the scene where the French patriots drown out the Germans with "Les Marseillaise" in the "singing battle." :huh:

Also, since Bogart has been parodied so many times down the years, it is impossible to watch his scenes with a straight face. The ending is particularly vomit-inducing with the "this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship" stuff. ;)

Finally, I always thought that "As Time Goes By" would be a single, special emotional centrepiece. Not true. They actually play it every five minutes throughout the entire bloody film. I actually quite like the song but even I was really bloody sick of it by the time it was over. By contrast, the "Knock on Wood" song provides a great, though lightweight, little moment.

Overall: I suppose it is good as far as blatant propaganda films go but definitely not the "greatest film of all time."

While I am at it, Maltese Falcon is another Bogart film that doesn't live up to its hype at all, though the whole thing anticipates the cartoonish master villains seen in Hollywood films since, with Sydney Greenstreet playing a Jabba the Hutt type master villain and Peter Lorre as his uber-homosexual sidekick. Bloody hell I hate Bogart himself, though. I wonder who told that bloke he could act?

If you want something from 1940s Hollywood with a similar overall vibe to Casablanca but with much better execution, I would probably have to say Gilda with Rita Hayworth is your best bet.

Nor me, although my daughter is currently studying forensic science at uni, I suppose I really should take some kind of interest in it.

You could do so by committing some interesting crime. Murdering an actor in such a show should do nicely.

If you like special effects, the 'Lord of the Rings' are the movies too watch. (My favourite one is the second movie in that trilogy)

A similar film to The Great Escape was The Wooden Horse (same prison camp etc etc). Good old Peter Butterworth from the Carry On franchise was interred there during the war, and was one of the vaulters in the escape in real life.
He auditioned for the part of a vaulter in the film but was bumped ' cos he didn't look up to it :}
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Difficult one!!

If you have read the books then the films are OK to watch but a wasted opportunity.

If you haven't read the books then I would recommend reading the books but you might enjoy the films more if you haven't read the books!!

I've never seen Silkwood, When Harry McNally Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle or You've Got Mail - is it worth becoming a Nora explorer?

My opinion:

Silkwood - worth watching if you can get past the cast;
WHMS - enjoyable if undemanding - watch with Mrs. HMBWA for maximum enjoyment;
Sleepless, YGM - haven't watched all the way through - nuff said.
