Re: R.I.P. Ennio Morricone

Speaking of tinkering with films the Hugh Wilson film Revolution plays so much better in the directors cut than the turgid 1984 cinema release which was barely watchable. It's pretty amazing that sometimes even smaller changes produce great improvements. I have a hard time believing any tinkering c...

Re: R.I.P. Ennio Morricone

I've actually never seen The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but the music is implanted in my head because it was a top five radio hit when I was in high school. Indelible theme. His career of course had so much more to it, but that one credit alone would have put him in the books. I'm genuinely shocke...

Wonder why this film, and especially Garbo, got snubbed. It was a huge hit at the boxoffice. Surely MGM would have backed it.

Re: Non-English Films That Would've Made an Expanded List

I think had the expanded Best Picture been around in the past decades, there could be more. Only from 1960 onwards. Apart from the Renoir mysteriously getting onto the Best Picture list in 1938 there was no way Hollywood - still a more hip community than the rest of the country - was going to "...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

In Islamabad the government puts a lockdown on different areas as and when cases increase. Yet I see so many ignorant people going about without masks. At a local grocery store I have seen couples walking in with masks on but bringing in kids without masks. Stores also not insisting on protocols as ...

Re: Coronavirus and the Oscars

What's the point of giving out awards for a movie year that never happened? Is there any co-relation between the public watching films in a cinema and awards handed out to any of those films?
