    I think my favorite decade for movies is the forties- before HUAC even though many people see the 50's as good. Seems to me a lot of great movie makers were unable to make movies in the fifties. So I'm going back and watching movies from the forties I've never seen starting with this one:

    And rewatching some of my favorites from that era: third man, children of paradise, the great dictator, philadelphia story -that's enough for now.

    as a kid i had a significant fear of the drain in large pools, was not sure if it was going to suck me down or release rabid sharks but all i did was stare at it as if it was saying "i see you little boy, been waiting a while for this". my first swim lesson (about 6 yrs old) was in an olympic sized pool with a group of about 50 kids (thanks mom) and i threw up, in the pool, after dropping like a rock and being rescued by a lifegaurd/swim instructor/"mam, you should take him home". years later after seeing the triple lindy and laughing so hard i couldn't even hear, i was cured of those damn pools. thanks rodney, I respected you...YOU MELON!

    I love reading Philip K. Dick books, awesome sci-fi.

    One of his books has been converted to a movie and is pretty out there!! The book is of course way better but the movie is worth watching!
    Lots of famous actors!!

    I just love this movie...I also just found out there was an incredible ending I never got to see before!

    Then of course there is tonight's movie, Nothin' But Trouble, from 1991. Some 90s hip hop artists, and Dan Akroyd really shines as a nasty gross man.

    More of a documentary on quite an interesting musician!
    It is called "Searching for Sugarman".

    It is actually made by a group of South Africans my age, 40'ish, who grew up with his music and legend.
    In the Apartheid era of SA, anything anti establishment was banned, so a lot of music was censored and never heard.
    Vinyl were screened and any non-conforming track was scratched and destroyed so it could not be played.

    Somehow a copy of the vinyl made it through SA customs and his music came at the right time!
    Time for change!
    He was never seen in concert and rumor was that he had killed himself.

    The two guys go on a journey to find this remarkable man to find out if he is still alive what he is doing now.
    Fascinating documentary scenes from SA history with Rodriguez actually playing a few concerts in SA!

    Fury with Spencer Tracy.
    1930's film showing "Public Outrage". Our ability to dupe ourselves and take umbrage.
    Saw it on Turner Classics.

    My local theatre put Searching for Sugarman on my radar, but I haven't seen it yet, so thanks for the recommendation and putting it back on my radar

    I recently watched Moon (2009) when it was added to Netflix ~2 months ago. A bit different (and a little slow for Space SciFi) but really a neat movie.

    Have to agree. Moon is one of the best, coolest, SciFi films I've seen in years. Who's gonna stand up for clone rights?!?

    Enjoyed Red Dragon the other day. Excellent cast.

    A good deal more than one of Dick's novels/stories have been adapted into films. Blade Runner, Total Recall(twice), Minority Report, Scanner Darkly, The Adjustment Bureau, and the Amazon series Electric Dreams.

    I watched a movie called criminal with kevin costner recently. I started watching about 30 minutes in, and thought it was great. It has a very good cast; besides costner it includes tommy lee jones, gal gadot, gary oldman, ryan reynolds, michael pitt, and a dude named jorde molla who I could've sworn was andy garcia. I looked it up and found it had decidedly mixed to poor reviews, didn't get it until I saw that half hour. They didn't set it up well, but when costner's psycho-killer wakes up from the operation with reynold's secret-agent memory and skills it really does take off. That's when I started watching it the first time lol.

    This used to be shown at weekend midnight movies in Denver in the 70's. Hordes of stoners in ragged bell-bottom jeans would shuffle in, cops would sometimes try to intimidate us. Once they had dogs out at Tamarac Square.

    Echos!
