  • They Were Expendable (1945)

    WaynamoJim - - The 1940's

    Post

    Quote from Little One: “I watched this movie for the first time last night. I didn't like it as much as "Back to Bataan" or "Sands of Iwo Jima", but it was really good. It was very obviously a John Ford film, though, and I think that's what made me really like it. His masterful use of snatches of old songs at the right moments is frequently very moving. I noticed that at least twice he included the "Battle Cry of Freedom" moving into the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" (which appeared again as the…

    Just picked this up on Blu-ray last week. It was originally released by Twilight Time, but they closed up shop and a company,Screen Archives Entertainment had it for $19.95.

Cobb, and Cesar Romero.

  • The Last Command (1955)

    WaynamoJim - - Alamo Movies

    Post

    Little bit of an update, though about a year or so too late. Has anybody bought the Blu-ray version of The Last Command put out by Kino Lorber? I bought mine when first available, either last year or 2019. Can't remember which. Certainly a long time coming and worth the wait. Kino Lorber has been putting out some other great movies too, some that I have picked up. Westerns, El Paso, The Long Riders, and Yellow Sky. Many others available.

  • With that, just found out that Charles Portis, who wrote True Grit has passed away. Arkansas author Charles Portis, who wrote 'True Grit,' dies at 86

  • The Big Country (1958)

    WaynamoJim - - Gregory Peck

    Quote from Moonshine_Sally: “This film was shown on the BBC around Christmastime so I programmed it on my digi- box and finally made the time to watch it. I don't think I ever saw it before and after watching I know I haven't seen it before. But that music!!! OMW I recognized it so I must've heard it on the radio or whatever. It gave me goosebumps straight away. I didn't think it too long although I watched it in 2 goes. The love story was a little predictable and the main story too I guess. But…

  • The Searchers (1956)

    WaynamoJim - - The 1950's

    Post

    A number of years ago, I read the book, The Searchers by Alan LeMay. In the book, Ethan dies during the attack on the Comanche village. I guess they wanted a happier ending for the movie version.

  • Hey, I'm still around, folks. Just turned 72 last week.

  • Yesterday, went with one of my sons and grandson to see Captain Marvel. We all thought it was good. Started a bit slow but the last half really takes off with some great action. Brie Larson is good as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers, and Samuel Jackson is his usual great self as a younger Nick Fury. I guess they de-aged him digitally and it worked. Same with the actor who played Coulson. Rest of the cast was good, Annette Bening, Ben Mendolshon, and Jude Law. And Lee Pace, who played the villain, R…

  • Quote from DCtheQuietMan: “Katherine Helmond Actress Katherine Helmond, best known for her work in "Who's the Boss?" and "Soap," has died due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease, her rep Jeff Witjas told USA TODAY Friday. She was 89. ” One good looking woman and very sexy too.

  • Quote from Kevin: “Morgan Woodward, star of 'Dallas' and 'Star Trek,' dead at 93 morgan-woodward-star-of-dallas-and-star-trek-dead-at-93 ” Also, "the man with no eyes" in Cool Hand Luke.

  • Just wanted to bring this to everyone's attention. Encore Westerns has begun showing The Big Valley weekday afternoons at 2pm EST.

  • Hey, fellas, I'm still hanging around. Don't get in here much, but still keep the door ajar for easy entry. Can't remember what year I joined, but I think I was in my 50's then, going on 72 now. Just checked, joined here in Oct. '05. I was 58 then. So young. Now, heading to 72 at seemingly breakneck speed.

  • A Christmas Carol

    I like both the 1938 and 1951 version, with the 1938 version edging out the '51. After all, besides the fine actor Reginald Owen, it also stars the near entire Lockhart family, Gene, his wife, Kathleen and of course, daughter June is one of the Cratchit daughters.Only other version I really liked was the Disney animated one from a few years back with Jim Carrey as Scrooge. I got to see it in 3D in the theaters and it was pretty impressive.

  • PawPaw, which Spiderman movie are you referring to? The Marvel one called Spiderman: Homecoming, with Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, and Robert Downey Jr.? Or the new animated one that just came out recently.

  • Robbie, if and when you get to "The City By The Bay", just be careful where you step. It seems that the large population of homeless people there have taken to using the sidewalks as their own personal bathroom and it's been getting ugly. A lot of folks complaining about the nastiness of it all. Seem the city has finally organized a "poop patrol", that goes around cleaning up after them people.

  • It's been a year since The Ringo Kid started this thread. I'm still here, though not as often. Come in to see if any new discussions might be of interest from time to time. Ringo, hope you were able to acquire a new laptop or pc of some kind.

  • Quote from Pineapple Angel: “Was also going to come here to post about Richard Anderson dying. So heartbroken over this. The other main fan blog I participate in is one called the Bionic Project- a fan community of those who love the Six Million Dollar Man/The Bionic Woman. I absolutely adore these shows and I love Richard not only as Oscar Goldman in those shows, but also his varied performances in a great deal of other shows and movies. He has a smallish role in one of my top 5 favorite movies…

  • Great to see you back on the board, Ringo. I wondered what happened to you. Glad to see you're doing great. Myself, I don't get in here as much as I used to, might have to increase my visits. Were you the one who collected German military memorabilia? Anyway, welcome back. Also, so very sorry to hear of the passing of Arthur Arnell and Ethan Edwards. Shows how much I've stayed away. Though the last few times I was here I noticed that Ethan Edwards was no longer moderator. Thought maybe he just s…

  • Quote from Rooster52: “Purchased the digital download of Kong: Skull Island last night. All I can say is Wow! It was an excellent film made by people who clearly love the lore of Kong in film. Tons of homages to the '76 , '33, and the Japanese Kong Vs Godzilla. The effects were mind blowing. Great movie. ” Well, get ready, because they have a new King Kong vs Godzilla movie coming. Also a new Godzilla movie where he will take on Ghiddra, Rodan, and another Japanese classic monster whose name esc…

  • Quote from Stony: “I'm watching Warlock (1959) with Henry Fonda, Richard Widmark, Anthony Quinn and Dorothy Malone. An excellent movie (IMO). ” Always enjoyed that movie. I have it on dvd, but if it's on tv, I will watch it.

  • Finally finished off Season 1 of Arrow. Pretty decent so far. New telling of Green Arrow.

  • The last three weeks. Gone to see Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dean Men Tell No Tales, and Wonder Woman. Enjoyed all three.

  • Quote from dukefan1: “I remember first seeing him in Southern Comfort. He did such a good job in Deadwood, that I really hated his character. A very good actor who will be missed. ” That's when I first saw Boothe. Then he was in the original Red Dawn. My favorite role of his, though, has to be that of Curley Bill Brocious in Tombstone. He looked like he was having a ball in that one.

  • If you go to johnwayne-thealamo.com, you can find some photos of what Alamo Village currently looks like, and it's not good. It's becoming quite overgrown, especially in the Alamo compound itself. In the courtyard directly in front of the church and near the main gate, some mighty tall greenery has popped up and it's beginning to hide the church from view as you walk in. Unless someone steps up and buys this place, it won't be long till it's disappeared under a desert jungle.
