    My favorite movie of all times is The Lion In Winter, starring Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole as Eleanor of Aquitane and Henry II of England.



    It's also Anthony Hopkins' first movie, he plays their unfortunate son, Richard I, and the guy who played Arthur in Excalibur plays John, the doofus son (but the one who ultimately got to be King).

    El Dorado

    Rio Bravo

    Cape Fear ('62)

    Thunder Road

    Notice a theme? 3 of the 4 have Iron-ass Mitchum in lead roles. The best one is in black and white.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    OK. It was a good yarn, but you gotta admit that last car crash scene was about the lamest we have seen on the big screen. I mean; Crash!; fizzle-pop;.....cut to funeral procession....

    I thought Cape Fear with DeNiro was great. Then again, I think anything with DeNiro is great.

    The first time I saw that movie, I was watching it with my sister and my grandparents, who expressed repulsion throughout the movie but couldn't take their eyes off of it. We had watched The Little Mermaid right before it. One of those happy Thanksgiving memories-seriously.

    DeNiro was terrifying in that role. The only reason I have no nightmares from that movie is because it was so well-spoofed on The Simpsons, with Sideshow Bob as the psycho.

    I didn't see the spoof but yes DeNiro played an awesome psycho.

    We watch a couple of hours of silent movies that woman records off from some satellite station, they call it silent Sundays,. Charlie Chaplin, old cartoons some really good stuff actually.
    I'm sure Linda Numbers would remember some of them.
    How is obama working out for you?
