    I wasn't prepared for the beginning of the film the first time I saw it. I cried and it kind of knocked the wind out of my sails for the rest of the show. I have watched it since and liked it but, the first time...

    Pandorum

    The Descent on a spaceship. The Descent was so much better.

    I kinda liked Pandorum, probably mostly because I'm into Dennis Quaid.

    The Wolfman. I never noticed what a crap actor Benicio is. I guess I was distracted by his hotness. He's no longer hot, so it was pretty apparent that he's not a very good actor. Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins were excellent though. It was an okay movie. Glad I only rented it.

    The Fountain.
    Didn't understand a second of it, but for some reason I kinda liked it. It's not as though I was gonna see it again, but I'm glad I saw it once.
    I had the same feeling about Mr Nobody.

    A John Huston film with John Garfield and Jennifer Jones. I'd never seen it before and it blew me away! A very unusual film for it's time period and very intense. God I love John Garfield.



    We Were Strangers is a 1949 adventuredrama film directed by John Huston and starring Jennifer Jones and John Garfield.
    The film, set in 1933, concerns a group of revolutionaries attempting to overthrow the Cuban regime. The story is based loosely on Robert Sylvester's novel Rough Sketch.[1]
    In between making the classics Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) and The Asphalt Jungle (1950), John Huston made "We Were Strangers." The film was released in April 1949 at the beginning of the HUAC Committee hearings on communist infiltration in the U.S.A. It predictably received mixed reviews, and soon vanished from theaters. American audiences were perplexed by it, its largely Hispanic cast did not resonate with white Americans, and its shocking presidential assassination theme may have offended some sensibilities.
    Based on the overthrow of Cuban dictator Gerardo Machado y Morales in 1933, the story is about a group of revolutionaries who plot to bring down their corrupt government. China (pronounced Cheena) Valdez witnesses her brother's murder after he distributes leftist pamphlets and vows that she will kill his assassin. At his funeral, however, she is persuaded to join an underground group whose moves are more carefully orchestrated. China's house is next door to a cemetery and the leader of the group (John Garfield) devises a scheme to assassinate an official whose family plot is in the cemetery and detonate a bomb at the man's funeral thereby killing as many officials as possible. To do this, they must dig a tunnel from China's house to the cemetery. Much of the movie focuses on the digging of the tunnel while Garfield and Jones develop a romantic interest in each other. However, the film never lets the romantic issues overpower its basic theme of the desperation of the Cuban terrorists. It ends with a violent shoot-out sequence.
    The film suffers in a few places from sluggish pacing, but the performances are all first-rate. Jennifer Jones, doing a convincing Cuban accent, is radiant but intense as China and has good chemistry with Garfield. The supporting players are very fine. Pedro Armendariz, as the corrupt police chief, is deliciously menacing. Look for silent greats Gilbert Roland and Ramon Novarro in strong supporting parts as members of the resistance. Look for a cameo appearance by director John Huston who appears as a bank teller.
    Many of the film's outdoor scenes are shot against rear projections, which are quite noticeable. The film, however, achieves an almost documentary-like feel with its stark black and white photography.
    We Were Strangers, for whatever reasons, was virtually unavailable for viewing for decades. One indication of its long shelved status is that it was only first made available on VHS/DVD in 2005, two decades after almost all of John Huston's other films were made available.

    ^^Never saw this one. I love Jones and Garfield. I will have to look for this one.

    I've been watching Goliath Awaits on YouTube....nice cheesy TV flick from 1981 when Mark Harmon still had his looks.

    Here Comes Mr. Jordan (of which Warren Beatty made the 1978 version
    Heaven Can Wait), starring Claude Rains as Mr. Jordan (James Mason
    in HCW), Robert Montgomery (Beatty in HCW), Evelyn Keyes (Julie Christie
    in HCW), Rita Johnson (Dyan Cannon in HCW), James Gleason (Jack
    Warden in HCW) and John Emery (Charles Grodin in HCW).
    The movie was made in 1941 and what struck me most was the difference
    in acting style. In the forties everybody seemed to scream their lines,
    with only a few exceptions in the cast.
    It was cute, but viewed more like a stage play than a movie.

    Then later "Some Like It Hot" with Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, Jack
    Lemmon, George Raft and Joe E. Brown. This one never gets tired.
    In some scenes it's so clear to see that Monroe was pregnant.

    Then and Now - 1995. It was interesting to see Demi Moore look older then than she does now.

    Cute flick, good to treadmill too.
