    • Last Non Western You Watched

      Hello All
      Thought this might be a place to talk about movies you have watched ; new releases older films and in between. It offers other members a chance to hear one or more opinions about movies they might want to rent or buy. :jump: :cry2: :fear2: :(

      "Batman Begins" - a somewhat offbeat look at the comic book character, focusing on his beginning (as the title implies).  This was an improvement over the last several go-rounds.
      Cheers - Jay :D

      Jay, I thought that was the best adaptation of Batman in the movies so far. I liked how the movie made him out to be more of a "real" person instead of hokey like the other films with Keaton, Clooney(Sorry Ringo, I said his name!!), and Kilmer. I really liked this movie alot.

    • The Butterfly Effect is a great movie for those who like time travel. It deals with the main character who found out he had the ability to go back in time (his past) and change the outcome of painful events that happened to him and his friends. But he learns that subtle changes then make dramatic changes years later. I loved the film more than I thought I would.

      That was my thought as well. I think Ashton Kutcher is quite limited in what he can do on screen but he pulled this character off and made a surprisingly good film.

      The last non Westerns I watched were:

      At the Dollar Cinema (last Friday) I watched: Failure To Launch w/ Matthew McConaughey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Terry Bradshaw and Kathy bates. Surprisingly I really enjoyed this film which is not usually the kind I would go see but, I had many laughs from it as well as (the only place in town that sell's it) a large glass of Mr. Pibb.

      On Saturday evening I watched: Magnum Force w/ Clint Eastwood, Hal Holbrook, Mitchell Ryan, David Soul, Rest in Peace next three names) John Mitchum, Robert Urich and Albert Popwell.

      Sunday evening I watched: The Frogmen w/ Richard Widmark, Gary Merrill and Robert Wagner.

      The Frogmen, that is one film that I have always wanted to buy but everytime I go buy a movie, I get something else. I really like Richard Widmark in just about everything he did.

    • Hi Todd, same here about Richard Widmark. I grew up watching him as well as the Duke, Henry Fonda, Charlton Heston, Chas Bronson, Telly Savalas and so many other greats.

      The Frogmen is a pretty good movie. As far as his war movies go, I prefer Hall's of Montezuma over the Frogmen, but mainly because HoM had greats like Richard Boone, Walter Palance and Neville Brand in them. One cannot go wrong having Palance and Brand in a war movie as they were both combat veterans--specially Brand.

      One Richard Widmark war movie I am anxiusly awaiting to see releasedoon DvD is: Hell and High Water. It's not exactly a war movie per-se but is a great action movie from the 1950's. Another is Time Limit which is more a Courtroom drama than a war movie though a good portion of it takes place during the Korean War.
