How about favourite Peter Lorre movie, instead?

Casino Royale (1954), with Barry Nelson as American agent "Jimmy Bond" (!). Peter Lorre is scary as hell in that.

Favorite made-for-TV movie or series?
I really dig the Jesse Stone ones with Tom Selleck.

Shogun with Richard Chamberlain. A week long movie. Almost as long as all three LOTR movies.

Favorite movie where the head villain is played by a normal good guy. Name both male and female.


I don't understand the question. Do you mean "a movie in which the head villain is played an actor who is normally cast as a good guy"?


Kirth Gersen wrote:
Can we repeat questions like that?

Yeah, like we haven't done James Bond over and over and over again...

I'm going to go with The Lady Vanishes although it could have just as easily been The 39 Steps. I like the early British ones. Favorite big-budget American film would probably be Vertigo.

Back to Mr. Scholz's question.

Yes, that is what I meant. My fingers don't type as fast as I think, and I forgot to proofread my post.

I am looking for something like Sean Connery playing the villain August DeWinter in The Avengers.
The second of only 2 things I liked about that movie, the first being Uma in a catsuit.

Funny. Same only two things I liked. :)

I was going to say Goldeneye (Sean Bean), but he was a villain in National Treasure and Patriot Games, so maybe he doesn't count as "normally cast as a good guy." Have to think on this one.

EDIT: I think I'd go with Tom Cruise in Collateral.

For my question, I'll pass along the female half of Charles' question:

Favorite movie in which the head villain is played by an actress who is normally cast as a good girl.

He was an incredibly horrible bad guy in Red Riding.

Warning: This trilogy of films not for the faint of heart.
Plug: The first two (taking place in 1974 and 1980, respectively) together constitute probably the best contemporary mystery/suspense/noir film out there.

Kirth, have you seen Life on Mars and/or Ashes to Ashes? British and interesting.

On the subject of Sean Bean, I got Game of Thrones and watched the whole thing, right in a row, night after night. The next day Troy was on, in which Sean bean plays Odysseus; all I could think was, if Ned Stark had half the wiles of Odysseus, Game of Thrones would have had a very different ending.

I can't think of one. Anybody else?

Neither. May need to check them out. Thanks!


how about Julia Roberts in Mirror Mirror?

Give a more realistic ending to Pretty Woman


She fails to overcome her heroin addiction, ODs, and wakes up in the hospital only to learn she has AIDS.

Go from Pretty Woman to The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly in 3 jumps or less.

Richard Gere (who was the male lead in Pretty Woman) was in the Cotton Club with Laurence Fishburne.

Laurence Fishburne was in Mystic River Directed by Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood was the lead in the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

I most indignantly call foul -- actors only! Otherwise we go from Ben Hur to Lucky Number Slevin in one jump, through MGM Studios. No directors, camera men, producers, scriptwriters, grips, gaffers, studios, agents, makeup artists, plot elements, filming locations, or other non-actor links will be recognized by the Drunken Satyr Committee.


Good catch, Kirth!

Lets see if I can do this right.

Pretty woman- Julia Roberts
the Mexican -gene hackman
-the unforgiven clint eastwood
-the good the bad and the ugly.

Riddly Scott Robin Hood or Kevin Reynolds Robin Hood?

Osirion

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Since I do not like Russel Crowe, I did not see it. Therefore I will go with the Kevin Reynolds version (even if I did have issues with it.)

Who was the better Robin Hood; Douglas Fairbanks or Errol Flynn?


Errol Flynn

Vive le Galt!

Favorite Claude Rains role?

I admit I haven't seen many of Rains films. Casablanca had characters in spades though and Rains was great as Captain Louis Renault.

First movie you saw on a date?

spoiler:
Mine was Sneakers.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

I think it was a double feature of Hollywood Shuffle and Eddie Murphy's Raw! :)

Most recent movie you went to on a date?

I love Hollywood Shuffle! "We gave Dirty Larry

Last movie on a date? Over the weekend Mrs Gersen and I stayed in and watched The Transporter, which we both enjoyed.

Least favorite Cop movie.

2. Least favorite is Righteous Kill, which I immediately dubbed "Righteous Crock." I hate when a movie treats me like a I'm a profoundly retarded 10-year-old.

Favorite DeNero role/movie?

Spoiler:
I'm torn between The Untouchables and The Deer Hunter, for role, and Ronin for movie.

** spoiler omitted **

I am going to have to go with Godfather 2 for movie I mean its pretty damn hard to beat. For role I will say Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver.

The bomb is about to drop and you have time to make it to an emergency shelter. You can grab 5 movies to take with you on top of food and water. Which 5 movies do you take? Keep in mind you may never leave this shelter. The movies you take with you will be all you have to watch over and over.


1. The Apartment by Billy Wilder
2. The Big Lebowski by Joel Coen
3. Rushmore by Wes Anderson
4. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly by Sergio Leone
5. Repo Man by Alex Cox

Of course, I would rather die than only have 5 movies to watch repeatedly for the rest of my life, and I hope the emergency shelter is stocked with books, but for the purpose of this exercize, the above will do.

Favorite Italian neorealist film?


The one that started it all - shot while there was still fighting agains the occupying Germans going on: Rome, Open City.

Favourite movie in the director-wants-to-show-the-world-what-a-hot-wife-he's-got genre.

Favorite Christopher Plummer Movie?

Osirion

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I didn't realize there were so many.

There are too many I like to rank.
In alphabetical order:
The Addams Family
The Adventures of Tintin
Batman (Michael Keaton)
Dr. Who and the Daleks
Doctor Who (Paul McGann)
Maverick
McHale's Navy
The Muppet Movie
Spiderman
Star Trek: The Motion Picture
Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan
Star Trek (2009)

Answer only one of these, let someone else answer the rest.
The next question is asked by the person who answered the final question.

1. Favorite movie based on a fictional book?
2. Favorite movie based on a non-fiction book?
3. Favorite movie based on a children's book?
4. Favorite movie based on a comic book?
5. Favorite movie based on a factual event?

Ninja'd.

Haven't seen too many Christopher Plummer movies. I will have to go with The Sound of Music. Loved it as a kid.

See above for next question.

Hee hee! I was hoping one of you Euros would pick that one up. I've only ever seen Bicycle Thief and could only name others because I've read too many highbrow film mags!


I was going to put up more links but I got tired suddenly.


By fictional book I'm guessing you mean a book with a fictional story, rather than a book that doesn't actually exist. ;) (I'm sure some looking could come up with one, though.)

And my answer would be The Two Towers - would have been Return of the King if they'd handled the ending more efficiently (I hold the theory that adding another half-hour to include the scouring of the Shire would have made it feel less drawn-out).

Osirion

Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

If you meant a book that doesn't exist, my choice would be 'In the Mouth of Madness'.
The line between 'non-fictional book' and 'factual event' seem blurry, too, so I chose 'Zodiac' for the former and hope someone finds a movie for the latter that is made after factual events but not on a book about those events.


Using Feytharn's reasoning, I believe Enemy at the Gates qualifies. Also, good call on In the Mouth of Madness!


More links!!

The Bicycle Thief

In the Mouth of Madness

Children's books and comic books are still open.

Osirion

Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

For Children's books I go with a tie between three movies: Bridge to Terabithia, the (not as well known)Brothers Lionheart and Coraline, although all three touch pretty dark and mature themes for children.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Favorite comic book movies are X-Men 2, Iron Man, and Spider-Man 2.

Saturday night fever.

Favorite movie involving punk music?

Osirion

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

I never liked punk that much. According to Wikipedia's list of punk music in movies, I only saw 1, so I must go with that:

Class of Nuke-Em High

Favorite score? (This is music written for the movie, not music brought in for the movie. Ex: In the 1989 Batman movie, the theme song and other incident music written by Danny Elfman is the score, but the music that Price and others did is soundtrack.)

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Lord of the Rings soundtrack by Howard Shore. It's hard to try dividing them out, since there is so much overlap of cues, movements, and themes across all three movies, so I'll just treat them all as one for scoring purposes. :)

Most dramatic shot in a movie, and by shot I mean projectile weapon (bow, gun, crossbow, laser, phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range, whatever), not camera picture. Also, one, single, discrete shot, not an onslaught of automatic fire.


Here

Has anyone seen The Hunger Games?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Sure, lots of people have! :)

(seriously, I dropped off my 14-year-old son at the movie with his first date to go see it, then picked em up after the movie)

Has anyone seen In God We Trust? If so, how did you like it?

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

P.S. Good choice on the shot. I hadn't seen the B&W version of that; I had only seen the 1979 movie with Richard Thomas and Ernest Borgnine.


Id never even heard of In God We Trust! It does sound interesting.

Whats the first movie that you can remember seeing in the theater?

Not in theatre (theatres aren't made for people taller than 2 metres, I only do that to myself for very few movies), but yes, I do.

Favorite vampire movie?
