3D? What are you talking about?
It's in 3D.  Actually now that I think about it, Hitchcock did 3D and remakes HE'S WORSE THAN MICHEAL BAY!!!

Never say that.  Not even in jest.   :grr:

Besides, Hitchcock remade his own film.  And it was worse than the original.

So it's not bad enough to be enjoyable?  That's disappointing.

Yes, that bad.  For me anyway.  And I normally love bad movies.

Give me Ed Wood, Coleman Frances, Howard the Duck.  Anything but this.
I actually enjoyed it. Not sure if I can explain why. It entertained the hell out of me to watch them try and justify the license with the actual premise. Also it helped that I saw it at a drive through as part of a double feature with The Avengers. 1, I wasn't going to feel ripped off since I paid six bucks a ticket and got to see a damn good movie first. 2, my wife and I were in our own car meaning we could riff without bothering anyone else.

The Spy Who Loved Me

The only other Bond movies I'd ever seen are View to a Kill and the ones with Daniel Craig.  Or as I like to call him Blonde, James Blonde.  The library near my new job has the whole collection of Bond movies.  So I'm gonna try to watch them all.

Enjoyed it, even with the cheesy disco music during the action scenes.  Full of cheesy lines.  Telling Bond to pull out of his assignment, he's with a chick.  Pull out...get it?  Ha!  Richard Kiel is awesome, although Eegah lines from MST would go through my head every time he appeared.

The Misfits (1961) - What a combination of talent - and miserable people! Monroe and Gable's last film, and one of Montgomery Clift's final ones too. And with John Huston drinking and gambling on set, and Arthur Miller (who wrote the script and whose marriage to Monroe was falling apart at the time) was rewriting it on set...

And it turned out to be a really great, though somewhat depressing, film.

Apparently Marilyn hated it, but I think it might have been the best performance I've seen her give (I think she's great generally, but usually had to play fairly cartoonish characters).

Really glad I watched it. :)
FINE

Gable wasn't always miserable.  He just never really got over Carole Lombard's death in the 40s.

The Misfits is good, and I don't think Gable was ever better in a dramatic role, but there's something about Miller's dialogue in the film that feels off.  It's too stagey, even for him.

The Big Sleep

Great Bogie and Bacall flick.  Plot was kinda convoluted though.  The DVD had a short documentary piece comparing the 1946 released version with the original 1945 unreleased version.  They apparently added and changed some stuff to make Bacall come across better than she did in the original.  Although I enjoyed Bogie's scene with Dorothy Malone in the book shop more than any of his scenes with Bacall.  Curious now to see the 1978 remake with Robert Mitchum, just to see how lousy that one probably is.

Walk Hard - The Dewey Cox Story

First time seeing this, and I loved it.  John C.  Reilly was awesome.  It hit all the music bio cliches perfectly.  And Paul Rudd was also awesome in his short cameo role.

The DVD I have is a flip disc with both versions.  The original was way more coherent.  They shot new scenes with Bacall in them to give her more screen time since she was becoming so popular at the time, they also messed around with the plot some in order for the new stuff to fit in, that's when they made an already complicated plot way too complicated.

Yeah, I have the same DVD.  Only watched a little bit of the original version though.  Will revisit that someday and watch it instead.

For some reason, I usually quite like stagey dialogue - I often enjoy Mamet films, for example.

Watched this one with my family.  Absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking movie of an old man threatened with losing his apartment do to the meager pensions that the elderly were given by the government at the time.  The one light in his life: his little dog.  Awww...

Seriously, an amazing movie.  Check it out.
