Get the F outta here!! I hardly ever use the word, and mostly not as a throw-away. Besides, the amount of people on here who use that word and worse, on a regular basis I'd hardly have it edited out. Jeepers, the Mods would need to be a million-strong to edit them all.
Anyway, I PM-ed Shool and apologised. For whatever it was. As I told him, it was in the afternoon so I can't blame the meds. Maybe it will remain forever one of life's little mysteries. Maybe if I use the word again I will get told off? Who knows.
Wait til I get to use gifs and stuff; this thread will become one of my most visited. As said before, keep up the good work people.

Ok ok, calm the fuck down you bunch of shit-arses! I was reprimanded, and rightly so, for using a term we don't use anymore. So go arse yourselves off and give us some more reasons for loving cine.

Mebbe. I just wanted the troops to know I was serious about my penitence. And no, I'm not taking the pee. But yes, moving on.

Ah, got one. The final scene in Cyrano De Bergerac (one of my top 10 films). Anyone who doesn't shed a tear is a lifeless automaton. Even Dev choked up a little.....

I love it when you're in the cinema and someone reacts in a totally genuine way.  So that even if it's a film I don't like, it makes me happy for them!

When Moulin Rouge was out, the scene where the evil boyfriend is critisizing the play that a princess would leave all her life for a pauper and McGregor's character blurts out "Because she loves me!".  In the moment of silence after that, the girl directly in front of my let out "OH NO!  You idiot!"  In such a genuine way, it was awesome.

Similarly after the big scene in the middle of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in the moment of silence, two little kids down the front somewhere let out the two most astonished gasps I have ever heard.  It was great, I had to imagine their eyes were 3 foot wide!

And the rising wail of a 100 scarred childhoods when Kong bites it at the end.  Great stuff.

I had a situation not hugely dissimilar to that myself last night at a screening of Young Adult. The humour of the film is quite slight, but there is at least one genuinely surprising big laugh. When it hit, the audience erupted with laughter, except for one woman who quite literally stood up, turned around and shouted "IT's NOT THAT FUNNY!" at a packed house! Very weird behaviour.

Me too. When I saw The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, in the scene where Lisbeth smacks Vanger with the golf club, saving Mikel, a woman shouted: "YES!" and started clapping uncontrollably, only realising afterwards that she'd actually done it. I felt happy for her that she was so into the movie haha

Saw The General at the weekend at the cinema and, at the bit where Buster knocks the sleeper off the track with the other sleeper just in time while he's sat on the front of the train, there was spontaneous applause. Which is awesome, considering.

Hey, no fair. I wish my cinema would show stuff like The General you lucky fucker. Do they show silent films often?

It gets better. It was at a silent comedy film festival, so it was actually in a concert hall with a live orchestra doing the accompaniment...

Cool. What else did they show? The only thing close to that I've ever seen was a showing of Nosferatu in a church with live organ and it was an amazing experience.

A Chaplin and L&H short, but there was stuff all weekend I couldn't get to sadly.

I've been very fortunate over the past three years to catch Sunrise, King of Kings, The Passion of Joan of Arc, La Roue, J'Accuse, Neighbors, and now The General, all on the big screen with live accompaniment. It's how they were meant to be, and it makes it electric.

When we were at Bruno and the moment were the cop confronts him on the bus and Bruno calls him Paul Blart, my mate sitting beside me repeated 'Paul Blart!' out loud and burst out laughing. Which made me laugh even more. Its almost like he forgot he was in the cinema for a moment.

I saw PASSION in complete silence in Leeds cathedral. It was quite something.

Continuing the pedantic streak (as per twitter), a couple of those films did actually have scores produced for them on initial release. Sunrise certainly did, and it's notable for being one of the first films with an actual "sound" track. Not only did it have music, but it also had sound effects too. All it lacked was dialogue. My point being, that to suggest that seeing them accompanied is "how they were meant to be" is actually a little off the mark, and would have been considered sacrilege by an "artist" like Murnau who would have wanted his work to have been seen exactly as he intended, and not with someone else's music playing over it.

Why I love film - the opportunity for genuine debate.

The Finishing Touch. It was ok, but there's a better silent short film about a man building a house in a short period of time...

And the Chaplin was The Adventurer if anyone was curious about that.

All can be found in my top 100 films post in that thread in L&T10s...

Adam, it warms my heart to hear other people being just as pedantic as me, but pfffffffft to you! I'm generalising about silent films and you know it!

Although why put "artist" in parentheses? Surely Murnau was an artist?

Slightly but does the dvd of Sunrise feature the original score Murnau intended? I'm only asking because I remember watching The General on dvd and the music really didn't fit, it sounded like it was done on a Casio keyboard in 1986 and didn't sound anything like your traditional silent score. Reminded me of when Queen redid Metropolis.

I just watched it and that's exactly what I thought. It was the only thing that detracted from the film.

Scarlets journey is probably the most inspirational story I have ever been given by films.



My favourite film as a small child.


Every single frame of Singin' In The Rain. Or any frame of any movie in which Gene Kelly appears.

Just rewatching an old favourite - Battle of Britain. I was obviously born way too late to have been witness to anything like the events of 1940, but seeing massive formations of Heinkels and Messerschmitts being engaged by Spitfires and Hurricanes over southern England on the big screen (in 2005) as close to seeing those actual events as I'm ever going to get....
