I've wondered about 'The Sex Monster' before but mostly because I thought 'The Upside of Anger' was so good.   improviser that is pretty cool.  :)

Hello!

Just got my copy of Lost Horizon (1937) from amazon. http://www.amazon.de/Lost...=1248547844&sr=8-1

http://en.wikipedia.org/w...st_Horizon_(1937_film)

I like classic fantasy and horror movies from the 1930s and 1940s, especially the american movies of that time, great and ageless stuff!

Online Version: http://video.google.com/v...d=-3378504833323735810

Greetings from a german movie-buff!

Michael

Lost Horizon is a great movie. One of my favorites, and definitely my favorite Frank Capra movie. I like it even more than It's A Wonderful Life or It Happened One Night.

The complete program, for free, but only in german language, I use their stuff as a "sandman", preferring the works of Poe and Shelley..., to sorry, on the above site the works of H.P. Lovecraft are not included, yet...

One line from Lost Horizon ruins it for me.  I believe it was the High Lama explaining to the newcomers about their utopian society with no war, no hunger, no violence, health care, schooling, etc.... and then he mentions, as an "Oh, by the way", we have an inexhaustible supply of gold to pay for everything.  Well, duh.

Moin Extreme Glow!

The Wikipedia says 132 minutes, the Google-Video version is 127 minutes, so what is missing in the online-version?

Nevertheless Lost Horizon is one of the greatest classic fantasy movies, I saw this movie for the first time as a little boy in the early 1960s, in our local village cinema, and I learned to love this kind of classic movies, just great entertainment, ageless!

Kind regards from Germany

'Lost Horizon' is being shown in LA in a series of so-bad-they're-good movies in the middle of August.  I've never seen it but now my curiosity is piqued.

I love the Mercury Theatre. I'm a huge Orson Welles fan. I wish that radio theatre was still as popular as it once was.

That's the 1973 musical version, not the Capra original. The musical version is supposed to be pretty awful. The Capra original doesn't have any songs. You should check it out.

Greetings, Michael!

Yes, I agree it is a classic and well worth enjoying.

Not sure why the variations in run time.  IMDB says that the original release was 132 minutes.  The Columbia Classics DVD release is 134 minutes.  TCM lists several run times.

Just finished watching Star Wars III & then Star Wars IV with my 9 & 5 year old grandsons.  Our entire family is crazy about  Star Wars & this the 5 year old's first time to watch Star Wars III.
His big cousin(9 years old) spent about 20 minutes explaining how Anakin became Darth Vadar & what happened to Obi-Wan, Luke & Leia between movies III & IV.  Then we watched Star Wars IV. 

Although, I was disappointed the movies I, II, & III- it was really powerful to watch movies III & IV together.  Also, it was great just to watch the faces of my grandsons & listen to their Star Wars convesations.

Just watched Dive Bomber , a pre WW 2 movie with Fred McMurray in the lead. I didn't know he did serious stuff. The movie must have been made with the co-operation of the U S Navy in the buildup to the war (it came out in 1941). Lots of flying, takeoffs and landings.  Second line planes were used, with biplane fighters, and lumbering torpedo planes. I didn't see any actual dive bombers. The great SDB Dauntless was in service at that time, but we didn't see any. The plot was sort of contrived, but if you like watching old planes, it's a great movie.
 
Solyent Green , a cult classic that I last saw on a Navy ship in  1973 or 4. Aside from the fact that the dates were wrong it still holds it's own. 2022 seemed like a long way off in those days, but we have not ruined the earth yet. Co-star Edward G Robinson did a great job in his last movie role, and Charlton Heston, as usual, showed no special talent, just a so-so actor who knew how to keep working. 
 
Mr Robinson, near the end of the movie, decided to "go home". Running to the death center, and seeing how his friend (lover?) was turned into little green wafers brought us to the final, famous, last scene, when a wounded Heston yells out "Soylent Green is people". Going home looked to be a pleasant experience, and Mr Robinson asked them to be sure to let him have the "full twenty minutes". It looked a lot better than having your wheel chair pushed off a cliff.

Wow! This is a real zombie! But, I'll play along!
 
Let's see...this weekend we watched "Venom". This was a really good Marvel comics movie. Lots of action and humor and a really good addition to their cinematic universe. I do hope they make a sequel!
 
Last night we watched the newer edition of "The Predator". Another rollicking action movie with some of my favourite actors. Lots of action, an advancement of the existing story lines that were established in the original and sequels, and plenty of humor! It was a good movie. Just stupidly fun!

A few nights ago, I saw Dauntless from RedBox. I'm a fan of the WW2 Douglas Dauntless dive bomber, and my late father owned Barrett Tilman's book on the subject. 
 
The movie is not that good, and not a showcase for it's writer. If it's purpose was to showcase the set building skills, and CGI talents of the makers, it hits a bulls eye.
 
=============
 
I've been watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix. I had watched a little with family members, but am now catching up. I'm told that it is in it's final season, but I'm only on season 2. I looked it up on Wikipedia. Most of the cast is friends and family in "real life".
 
=========
 
I've tried to watch the new Daybreak .  It has good reviews, but I don't care for it. I may just be too long out of High School to "get it"

I remember the original, after all these years.  I have the new one on order, but thanks to your opinion, I may move it to the top. Thanks!

If you do that, go back and watch the 2000 version of Shaft with Jackson. It is the prequel to the 2019 version. They are both continuations of the original Shaft and Richard Roundtree is also in all of them!
