Discussion Tim Curry appreciation post.

890 Upvotes

Rewatched Legend tonight. The scene stealing legend that is Tim Curry is such a delight. His performance absolutely rises above everything else in that film, to use the cliche, he is very much playing chess with this material. His dialogue delivery is so measured when most actors would have really “hammed” it up.

Clue, Rocky Horror, even Annie. The man out performs his material and deserves to have a great final run as he enters the twilight of his career. Give me more Tim Curry dammit.

Discussion Does anyone want to talk about Big Trouble in Little China?

175 Upvotes

I was kinda just randomly jumping services tonight and doing the streaming video death scroll for something to watch and it came up.

I immediately put it on and have been enjoying the rollercoaster (and sending jack burton tank top pictures to my sister-in-law who loves going on the deep dives and buying me all the stylish clothing i don't get myself for birthdays/christmas, lol)

Classic.

Growing up in the eighties/nineties i think we got TBS or something on cable when it first came out. and on long weekends or holidays they would have western, bond, kungfu, scifi, or action movie marathons playing.

Tonight was like an enjoyable Thanksgiving(canadian), long weekend, sunday afternoon, matinee from my early teens.

What an amazing movie. It always leaves me entertained every time i watch it but also with questions I might not always get answers to.

This is life; reflected in art.

But....

Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it. "

P.S. - I'm also wondering if anyone wants to talk about Bloodsport? I'd love to talk about Bloodsport.

fantastic movie. i have not enjoyed a movie this much in a while. great action, great jokes, seperate things combinging to create bizarre events. i like that type of movie.

this is not about the movie though. i just want to say...

wtf hapenned to sandra bullock?

i mean, seriously. at the end of the movie, when she appeared, i was like: holy shit, its michael jackson! now that would have been a twist.

so i saw that other movie she was in not that long ago, the one where she wrote novels with channing tatum and brad pit. and while she looked a bit botoxy there, that is nothing on what she looks like now. 100% michael jackson replica right there. seriously freaky to look at..

what do you guys think? am i wrong?

The horror/cult classics available on Tubi rival the quality from Criterion but have a vastly superior selection. Yes, it has commercials and it may not be for everyone.

Slumber Party Massacre

Black Christmas

Suspiria

Nightbreed

Shivers

the list is crazy. you can get a real education from the horror and cult classics catagories.

I don't work for, nor do i gain anything from tubi. Just noticing that i see a lot of "best horror on *paid service* lists but not for free ones.

Discussion Has there ever been a more prolific director/composer duo than John Carpenter and himself?

21 Upvotes

I mean, the guy has scored like most of his movies and, in my opinion, they’re ALL good! I have an internal debate on whether I like John Carpenter the director or John Carpenter the composer more.

My wife and I have been watching through all of John Carpenter’s films throughout September and we only have a couple left, and the dude has composed the scores for the majority of his films and I think they’re actually better for it. I know it’s a semi common complaint that he reuses the same music pieces throughout the movie, but I think that’s actually something I really enjoy. It makes it feel like the movie has a beating pulse to it and has a sort of kinetic energy always moving forward.

Films (of his own) that John Carpenter has scored:

  • Dark Star
  • Assault on Precinct 13
  • Halloween
  • The Fog
  • Escape From New York
  • Christine
  • Big Trouble in Little China
  • Prince of Darkness
  • They Live
  • Body Bags
  • In The Mouth of Madness
  • Village of the Damned
  • Escape from L.A.
  • Vampires
  • Ghosts of Mars

That’s 15, has anyone even come close to that??

Thoughts? Who’s a better director/composer duo?

Recommendation Christmas movies that aren't Christmas movies

Upvotes

I just watched 3 Days of the Condor... definitely not a Christmas movie but set during Christmas- pretty subtle too, like Christmas lights in the background etc.. I'm looking to curate a list of this type of movie! All of Nov and Dec I'd like to watch movies on theme but not in your face Christmas...

Please help by adding your movie (s) in the comments...

PS. Yes we know that Die Hard fits this category 😉
