"Best films of the decade? Hmmm .. well, not really a lot to choose from seeing as most of it is garbage. That said, there are actually a few that I thought were incredible. The Lord of the Rings movies are amazing. They are, without a doubt, the…"

Who are your favorite stars?
Let me put it this way... my favourite movie stars, are the true movie stars.
Who are your favorite directors?
I do not have a favourite director. Although that is what I plan to be in the future - a director. Wish me luck.
About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
There is not much to say about my self. I'm just a guy stuck in the wrong time period, hoping in vain that someone will all of a sudden miraculously invent a time machine and send me back to a time when people had morals, class, and a hint of respect for one another.
The majority of 'entertainment' nowadays is complete and utter garbage. I'm so grateful I haven't been corrupted by todays society, and I one day hope Hollywood will go through some sort of renaissance and bring back the true art of film making.
Bring back the glory days, Hollywood!

You are SO right about the window to the soul. Our mother wrote to all these stars from her day in the forties and asked for their favorite poems. What she got back was astounding. Some letters written in the stars' own hand along with their favorite poems. It's wild!! Boris Karloff, for example, loved one about flowers in crannies. Lucille Ball's was a classic. Gene Kelly's came along with such a personal note that we were floored. Anyway, our mother has passed, the stars have passed. It would be nice to think she got to meet them all in Heaven.
Oh I dreampt of that time machine way too many times. I have seen myself in a speak easy, I have seen myself during WW2, THE 50'S. I like watching old documentaries and somehow feeling what it felt like to be there. I'D TAKE THE WARS YEARS - The homefront here in the old USA.
Funny you should mention MANOS: HANDS OF FATE among your favorite films--that film frightens me, not so much because its scary (which it isn't), but because the 'Master' looks so much like myself years ago without my glasses that its, well...scary!
To view The Three Musketeers click here. To view The Four Musketeers click here. Director Richard Lester was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but he directed some of the best British films of the 1960s. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati, he developed an acute funny bone and an appreciation of the absurd that allowed […]
To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]
To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
