It is perhaps appropriate to point out to you f*cking idiots at this juncture that I was NOT asking what movie you think is the greatest of all time. Your opinions are irrelevant.

I'm merely stating a simple fact: YOUNGBLOOD IS THE GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME! That is not opinion.

The funny part is that one of my brothers looks virtually exactly like Rob Lowe. Unfortunately, and unlike Mr. Lowe in this film, he could/can fight like a devil, at least until the breathtaking climax of the film.

I don't want to give anything away, for those who've not seen this masterpiece.

It is GWTW and yes, there is a book. It was written by Margaret Mitchell and she couldn't decide on an ending so, in frustration, her husband packaged it up and sent it in with no ending. That is why there are two endings to it. Margaret Mitchell was killed by a hit and run driver in Atlanta.

I and few of my brothers took the old man out to a "pub" to celebrate his 60th birthday recently. He ordered Fisherman's Pie, and it showed up as some kind of pastry thing stuffed with lobster. Thankfully, we intercepted the waitress before the old fart could freak out.

Gone With The Wind is a bloated, overrated piece of crap, and Scarlett O'Hara is most annoying heroin in the history of movies. Who wants to watch a 4 hour movie about such a vile, conniving bitch? I would have liked it much better if Rhett had shot her right between the eyes at the end.

Eyes Wide Shut was an outstanding character study. Loved it as a film.

2001 is not the greatest, but one of the greatest films I've ever seen.

Kubrick has played a fairly significant role in my filmmaking style... I'm partial to most of his work.

highlight of the movie = Kidman gets naked. As wonderful as that is, it definitely DOES NOT make the movie worth seeing. Absolutely a waste of time outside of naked Kidman.

Meh. She gets naked in Billy Bathgate, and that's actually a good movie.

I prefer to use ambient light, yes. However, the Hitchcock influences in me also really likes to use light and shadow to reveal what I want it to reveal.

Duck Soup is another favorite. I found my favorite quote from Horse Feathers.

Wagstaff: ...This college is a failure. The trouble is, we're neglecting football for education.

The Professors (in unison): Exactly, the professor is right.

Wagstaff: Oh, I'm right, am I? Well, I'm not right. I'm wrong. I just said that to test ya. Now I know where I'm at. I'm dealing with a couple of snakes. What I meant to say was that there's too much football and not enough education.

The Professors (in unison): That's what I think.

Wagstaff: Oh, you do, do you? Well, you're wrong again. If there was a snake, you'd apologize. Where would this college be without football? Have we got a stadium?

The Professors (in unison): Yes.

Wagstaff: Have we got a college?

The Professors (in unison): Yes.

Wagstaff: Well, we can't support both. Tomorrow we start tearing down the college.

The Professors (in unison): But Professor. Where will the students sleep?

Wagstaff: Where they always sleep. In the classroom.

Yep. I think Kidman was the hottest female actor out there when this movie was made. She's probably my favorite female actor right now. And her naked still wasn't enough to turn this into a watchable movie. EWS sucked. It just flat out sucked. Sure, it looked great. So does a good painting.

The Marx Brothers were awesome. It has to be some pretty damn funny stuff to still be making folks laugh 70 years later.

A couple of favorites....


"Right now I'd do anything for money. I'd kill somebody for money. I'd kill you for money. Ah, no. You're my friend. I'd kill you for nothing

"We've got to speed things up in this hotel.
Chef, if a guest orders a three-minute egg, give it to him in two minutes.
If he orders a two-minute egg, give it to him in one minute.
If he orders a one-minute egg, give him a chicken and let him work it out for himself."

Great stuff :thumb: One of my favorites from Animal Crackers:

Capt. Spaulding: I used to know a fellow who looked exactly like you by the name of Emanuel Ravelli. Are you his brother?
Ravelli: I am Emanuel Ravelli.
Capt. Spaulding: You're Emanuel Ravelli?
Ravelli: I am Emanuel Ravelli.
Capt. Spaulding: Well, no wonder you look like him. But I still insist there is a resemblance.
Ravelli: Heh, heh, he thinks I look alike.
Capt. Spaulding: Well, if you do, it's a tough break for both of you.

I went to see Animal Crackers at a theater back in the 70's. I don't remember the details but for some reason that movie hadn't been available for many years, some sort of legal problem. Anyway, we went on the first night it was playing and it sold out. I've never been to a movie where the audience laughed so hard. We missed about half the jokes because we couldn't hear over all the laughter. That was a lot of fun. Everyone was still laughing as they were walking out.

I thought EWS was quite easy to follow. I think you may need to kinda know Kubrick's style and what he likes to do, but I wasn't confused by EWS at all.
I was teasing frazod more or less due to comments by others when I saw it.

I was a bit confused but not as much as others. I did know his style. There were some things I read about after that filled it out for me more and made more sense. Then I could understand why he lit some things the way he did or used certain angles. He's my favorite director of all time, but I don't think that's his best. I like "A Clockwork Orange" the most. Great imagery in that.

You probably have it mixed up with Streetcar Named Desire. They're both set in the south and Truman Capote was gay. Lots of people get them confused.
Tennessee Williams?

OMG! You have got to rent that, it's a classic. I cried.

I just rented a bunch of old movies: Oklahoma ( pfft!), South Pacific, Sound of Music...for a theatre playbill I had to design. I watched them for research. Parts were kinda hokey...but Sound of Music is supposed to be the best musical of all time...or so the jacket claims. I cried.
I respect 'classics' of that era for what they were, but IMO the world changed for the better around the time Bonnie and Clyde, Easy Rider, The Graduate, etc. started getting made in the early 70s.

See what I mean? Gone With the Wind, Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams, Truman Capote and that one movie with Sidney Poitier that became a TV show, they're all basically interchangeable. Oh, and Burl Ives, him too. I'm sure you see my point.
