I got Fellini's Amarcord for €4 the other day.Of his films, I've only see La Dolce Vita (very good), but I think I've seen some of Amarcord on TV years ago. Anyway, looking forward to giving it a watch.

I've been trying to get hold of a copy of Mr And Mrs Smith for ages, with no luck. Is it worth continuing to try tracking it down?




Nicola1001 -> RE: CLASSIC FILMS I HAVE JUST PURCHASED (20/7/2009 9:24:49 AM)

I haven't watched it yet, but i'll let you know what I think when I do [:)] I bought it on PlayTrade.

Without wanting to wee on Nicola's parade, I think it's pretty dire, and I'm a sucker for almost all classic romantic comedies. With those stars, plus Gene Raymond, Jack Carson and William Tracy (very appealing in most roles, particularly as the delivery boy from The Shop Around the Corner, though he jettisoned much of my goodwill by giving one of the most revolting performances of all time in Tobacco Road) you'd think it would be good, but the story is anaemic and there are only about two laughs. Gimmicky, uninvolving, not that funny - I can think of a couple of hundred flicks in the same genre I'd see before it.

Thanks, Nicola and Rick. After those comments from you both, I certainly won't waste my time and money on it.




fairyprincess -> RE: CLASSIC FILMS I HAVE JUST PURCHASED (22/7/2009 10:29:08 PM)

i can tottally recommend marnie. it's be one of my little favourates for a few years now. it's  a solid  little movie 




00Nothing -> RE: CLASSIC FILMS I HAVE JUST PURCHASED (23/7/2009 5:39:05 PM)

Bought myself the Stanley Kubrick collection today for £30. Was actually looking to buy 2001:A Space Odyssey on it's own, but had no luck tracking it down individually. Besides, I've ended up getting Dr Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon thrown into the mix. Can't wait to watch the latter  as I've heard a lot of conflicting views on it.

No. I remembered you recommending it highly some time ago, and when I saw it was available, I thought I'd give it a try. I'm looking forward to it.
