Dracula - the 1931 one, with Bela Lugosi.

I remember my 11-½ year old self finding this scene strangely compelling... ;)

Favourite movie based on a book, play, or plain old movie-script by Graham Greene?

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

I was terribly puzzled by this question, since I couldn't find any books, plays, OR movie scripts by Graham Greene. :)

Since I haven't seen any of the movies based on the writings of that other [ur;=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Greene]Graham Greene[/url] (although I have heard of several of them and they are reputed to be very good), I'll have to pass. The question is still open.


I rule that if anyone can find a book, play, or movie by Jason's first Graham Greene, they should go with that one. :D


The Third Man is awesome, everyone should see it, and, I believe, Greene wrote the screenplay and THEN wrote the book, which is definitely reverse the normal order of things.

Favorite Orson Welles role that's not Harry Lime?

Hank Quinlan
Best movie with the same person as director and head actor that isn't an Orson Welles Movie?


I never tire of linking Reds

Favorite Warren Beatty movie?

"Comrade Reed! Counterrevolutionaries!"


I already answered Bullworth, and I don't really like any of his other movies I've seen (sorry Comrade, I missed "Reds"), so the question stands.

Heaven Can Wait

Favorite football movie (other than the above).


Any Given Sunday

Favorite movie of any of Shakepseare's pieces?

Wow, I am a big fan of Shakespeare and I think there have been many worthy adaptions of his plays, it is quite hard to make a choice, but I will go with a tie between Richard III and Kenneth Brannaghs Henry V (with Brannaghs Hamlet and Polanskis Macbeth as honorary seconds).

Favorite Movie 'inspired' by Shakespeare but not an adaption (something like In the bleak Midwinter or Forbidden Planet)?


Shakespeare in Love?

Favourite brilliant movie with an actor giving a stellarly bad performance?


Okay, so I can't attest for his whole career or anything, but I always thought this guy was the weak link in both The Big Sleep AND The Maltese Falcon!

What is your favorite movie by Howard Hawks?


Have to agree on Cook Jr., Doodle.
Hawks? I loved Rio Bravo.
Favorite John Wayne movie?


The Fighting Sea Bees

Name one of the other six movies that John Wayne dies in.

The Shootist

I don't know the other three.

Favorite Western not starring John Wayne or Clint Eastwood?

Winchester '73
Favorite Anthony Mann Movie?


Because I have no answer, I am going to take this opportunity to put up some more links!

The Hunger Games which I might see sometime this week

I don't think it ever gets up to Welles, but here's the legendary opening shot of Touch of Evil

Dino serenading The Duke

I've only seen The Glenn Miller Story, The Man from Laramie, The Tin Star and El Cid. I saw them when I was young, so that may have clouded my view. Of the 4, I liked "The Glenn Miller Story" the best.

Favorite Jimmy Stewart Movie?

Theres something about Mary.

Chris Elliot and Cabin Boy yay or nay?

Osirion

Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Nay to everything Chris Elliott.

Worst actor you have ever seen who gets top billing.

Mine is referenced above.

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

Pauly Shore. No contest, unless you count alleged comedians who sorta-kinda appear in movies (Didn't Carrot Top get a movie? Yahoo Serious in Young Einstein would be similar.)

Favorite movie about genius kids/teens (one or a group, doesn't matter)?


Not sure I'd consider people like Pauly Shore to be "top billed" -- it's not like you see them starring in actual, you know, serious movies. For "stars" who are truly crap actors, Kevin Costner is a usual favorite to pick on, but personally I think that Tony Curtis was even worse. A Viking with a Jersey accent?

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

Two words for you: Bio-Dome.

Sure, the movie is undeniably awful, but still look at the movie poster:

Pauly Shore. Top billed. I rest my case. :)

Either way, my question is still open!


Hackers

Favorite non-James Bond spy movie?


The Spy Who Came in From the Cold

Favourite Richard Burton movie?

Tony Curtis was great in both Some Like It Hot and Sweet Smell of Success.

Favorite movie with sales or con men?

The highly quotable The Road to El Dorado

Favorite movie featuring a prison break-out (if you go with a POW camp, also include one from a conventional jail/prison).


Watchmen.

Favourite movie adapted from a bad book?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't mean to troll, but I didn't much care for I Am Legend.

The Omega Man, otoh, kicks much ass! (Also, at 1:30 is every leftie's wet dream!...well, at least until 1:55!)

Which begs the question, aside from the aforementioned, what's your favorite Charlton Heston movie?

You are so right there Doodle I am legend was a stinker.

Since you already mentioned Omega man I will have to go with Planet of the Apes.

Favorite 70's film that's charm revolves around it being dated?


Saturday Night Fever.
Scientology: religion or cult?


Yes.

Favorite movie featuring a(n) (in)famous Scientologist?

Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan with Kirstie Alley

Favorite Star Trek movie?

Edit: Has this been asked before? If so what is your favorite Kirstie Alley movie?


Primary Colors

Favourite Emma Thompson movie?


Darn. Ninja'd.

Erm... Favourite Star Trek would be the recent reboot. Don't ask me for the exact title.

And now I really want to know about that Emma Thompson movie.

Saturday Night Fever captures NYC in the 1970s better than anything else I've ever seen.

Favorite Travolta flick, other than Pulp Fiction?

Primary Colors.

Favourite Emma Thompson movie?

To which I next answer, Sense and Sensibility.

So, I'll let someone else answer.


Doodlebug Anklebiter wrote:

That was a good movie, Dude.


Oddly, I've never read any Jane Austen, but I loved that movie.

Okay, never mind, I answer S&S.

What is your favorite 18-19th century period piece set in the British Emprire and mostly dealing with hot chicks?


Okay, fine, it doesn't have to be about chicks. It can be about dudes sword-fighting, too.

Ridicule is awesome but French.

Favorite movie with swords but no actual sword fights?

Edit: if I had to put a sticker on it, I'd say Ridicule falls more into hot chick than sword fight territory.

What would be the point [heh, get it?]?

It would be the opposite of one of my favorites, Ridley Scott's The Duellists, which is nothing BUT swordfights!

It would seem to be a violation of basic Chekovian dramatic principles.

I have no answer as of yet.

The Duellists gets props for having an Iron Maiden song written about it.

O.M.G.

I saw that on the CBS late night move when I was prepubescent and thought the whole thing was a dream until now!

Thank you, Kirth Gersen.


The link helped, though, right?

The link worked fine, I just don't know why you're linking things instead of reading Doomsday Book is all...

Ridicule

NSFW!

I knew I had seen this, but I kept picturing scenes from Cruel Inten-, I mean Dangerous Liaisons. Hee hee!


I am starting to doubt that there is a movie with swords and no swordfights.


Did I just stump the internet?

(Now I'm going to spend all day trying to remember if Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead has any actual fights in it; my best guess is there's one during Hamlet's flashback.)

The question stands, nerds!
