Seen any good DVD's lately?

So, i am here in Maine by myself to catch up on rest, reading, walking and watching some DVD's at night as we only get 2 tv channels here . I am so behind in any current movie/TV sereies on DVD I thought I would use this time to watch the movies I LIKE,

Last night (please do not laugh) I rented from our little gas station/video store "Here Comes the Brides" a TV series from early 1970's/late 60's that my parents would not let me watch because of that Bobby Sherman boy. (My parent's would let me listen to the Beatles either but that is another story)

I must say I was very surprised by this show, if you can look beyond the bad costumes on the men, it is pretty entertaining, I have NO IDEA WHY my parents would not let me watch this . It was entertaining and just what I needed to relax.

And you would think that that Bobby Sherman boy was the token name, but his acting is probably some of the best on the show, David Soul is Awful though, how he ever acted again is beyond me

I will be watching "Pride and Predjudice" (2005) tonight

Cheers

    Lord of War, with Nicholas Cage and Jared Leto. A very good, thought provoking movie.

    Wow! Here Come the Brides! Hadn't thought about that show in years. Thought Bobby Sherman was the hottest thing ever (when I was about 8) and loved Bridget Hanley as well. Might have the rent the show, too! My first LP was a BS album called "Here Comes Bobby." Later, just for fun, I bought a DVD of it. Not quite as good as I'd remembered, unfortunately!

    My copy of Grand Prix came last week. It was a great movie in the 60s and still is today.

    I used to watch "Here Come the Brides" and always thought Bridget Hanley was so pretty and I wanted her hair. And I remember the character, "Biddie" used to make me laugh. (In subsequent years, I occasionally would notice her in commercials since she has such a distinctive voice.) Here's some info on Brides from IMDB:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062569/

    Some of Mr.DL's and my favorite DVD's are written/directed by the Coen brothers: "Raising Arizona" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093822/ is a lot of fun and one of my favorites, but they also made "Fargo"-- excellent but way too violent and way too many F-words for me -- and "O Brother Where Art Thou" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0190590/ has very enjoyable music throughout. Here's a website on the Coen brothers and their movies:

    http://www.coenbrothers.net/

    Other favorites of ours are anything written by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy. "Best in Show" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0218839/ and "A Mighty Wind" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0310281/ are our favorites, and "Waiting For Guffman" is also very entertaining. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118111/

    Three favorites by director Peter Bogdanovich: "What's Up Doc", a screwball comedy from 1972 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069495/ , "Paper Moon" (Tatum O'Neal won an Oscar for her role) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070510/ , and a serious movie, "The Last Picture Show" (with Cybill Shepherd's debut as an actress and a wonderful acting by Cloris Leachman-- I'm pretty sure she got an Oscar). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067328/

    Have a wonderful time in Maine!

    Just watched "Blow" with Johhny Depp, and "Hostel"....
    I found Blow to be one of Johhny's better roles. But then again, most everything he does is great!
    I particularly liked Ninth Gate.
    I also recently watched 21 grams again.. Benecio Del Toro is one of my favorites.......

    Rossey90- Sounds like you like my kinda movies. I actually liked hostel- I thought it was almost an ironic statement.

    I enjoyed Hostel very much. I normally dont go for the "scary" movies, but it was done very well.

    Doubt seriously many like my kind of taste but here goes. Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill I and II, Ultraviolet, Capote, Clerks, Dogma, Memoirs Of A Geisha, Saw I and II and Dusk To Dawn. None are kid friendly and many are bloody, scary or full of curse words. So ignore if your taste don't run that way.

    I LOVE Reservoir Dogs!.....I like off the wall and black comedy flicks.

    OK, not available on DVD, but from our library on VHS, The Mask of Dimitrios, with Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Zachary Scott. A great mystery from 1944. Would go well with Xannie's choices, all of which I love.

    From the library last week we checked out Grand Hotel, Key Largo ( a GREAT summertime movie) and To Have and Have Not. And an old Spencer Tracy movie called Fury, by Fritz Lang, who directed the original Metropolis. That one was quite good. We love old movies.

    I got the 'Venture Bros.' season 1 set soon as it came out. Picture Jonny Quest 40 years later, as a middle-aged pill-popper resentfully living in his esteemed late father's shadow. Patrick Warburton stands out as Brock, the family's mullet-headed superviolent bodyguard. Smart, raunchy, and often hilarious.

    Saturday night we watched "8 Below" about a sled dog team left in Antartica with winter closing in. They survived (6 of the 8) on their own for 175 days.

    Also, the 1966 movie "Grand Prix" with James Garner came out on DVD for the first time. So I bought it.

    Movies...too many to name.

    If you'd like a good horror/gore film and like Japanese spontaneousness thrown in, rent Suicide Club. It just happens to be the gorest movie to come out of Japan. I won't give details..but I'm telling you, don't eat and watch it at the same time. Nearly threw up at some points. Good film though, and quite creepy how children can influence you...to do ANYTHING.

    Other then that...Sleepy Hollow is a really good Depp film. *squee*....sorry I'm all fangirly over Johnny Depp...I've got a whole POTC collection of just him...

    If you like Chinese films I suggest House Of Flying Daggers. Very awesome movie, and not so chaotic as Hero was. Beautiful cinematography and great fight scenes. Love it!

    For reliving your video game dreams: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Awesome film that ties in really well with the game. They sort of messed up on Sephiroth though...he's not as sexy looking as he was in the game or on KH. He looks sort of dorkish like. Anyway, great film for those FF lovers.

    If you want a suggestion for anything else foriegn or sci-fi let me know! I'll think of something to fit ya!

    Oh I agreee! We just watched Final Fantasy VII and it was great! And House of Flying Daggers was much better than Hero.

    One of my all time favorite movies is Raise the Red Lantern. I had to hunt everywhere for it as it seemed to have been banned in China.

    I enjoy foreign movies, subtitled of course. The beauty in Raise the Red Lantern is just breathtaking.
