What are you watching?

Glad to hear it! I've seen Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away -- which one should I watch next?

If you want a sense of adventure, then go with either Porco Rosso or Laputa: The Castle in the Sky. Something a bit slower? Kiki's Delivery Service or From Up on Poppy Hill. If you want realism and humanity, then The Wind Rises, Only Yesterday and maybe Whisper of the Heart are for you.

Thank you!

8 1/2 by Federico Fellini... Jesus, what a slog.


I just dropped in to see what people had been watching and I had to laugh at this one. My art teacher (whom, I have to say, was excellently encouraging so you don't get the wrong idea) back in the 70s made us sit through this several times. It meant more then, but I can imagine my eyes glazing over if I were to watch it now.

Presently chewing my way through 'Romulus' on the telly. As an archaeologist I have a few problems with it (couldn't stand Vikings), but am very much enjoying the Old Latin. That makes up for everything else. Too bad Vikings wasn't in Old Norse...

7 Samurai by Akira Kurosawa... it's a slow burner but at least it's not 8 1/2.

Rurouni Kenshin. It seems to be a samurai night :)

Sounds interesting. It would be nice to see if I have been pronouncing correctly all those latin phrases I learnt from reading Asterix...alea jacta est etc

Thief, a 1981 crime drama starring James Caan and directed by Michael Mann (his first major feature - he would later go on to direct classics like Manhunter and Heat) with a soundtrack by Tangerine Dream - to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Smile

Anne of the Thousand Days. The story of Anne Boleyn. The big names are Richard Burton and Genevieve Bujold, but also starring Vernon Dobtcheff (The Chairman in Shadow), TP McKenna (President Sarkov), Peter Jeffrey (Count Grendl in the Classic Who, The Androids of Tara), John Colicos (Baltar in the 1978 BSG), and William Squire (The Commissar in Horizon).

The Keep from 1983, Michael Mann's only foray into horror/fantasy and featuring a score by Tangerine Dream.

Survived Romulus, but wait – there's more! Every indication there'll be another season of blood and guts before we finally get to found Rome. Nothing like the legend, only the names are the same.

They did pronounce their 'vs' as 'ws'. Tick! And it's alea iacta est. I was impressed. Fascinated, more like. At least they didn't go overboard like Vikings trying to make everyone look like post-modern punks. We have 'Stardrive' to do that. Grin

The Beatles "A Hard Day's Night" (1964). One of my top 5 best films ever in my opinion. And yes, I was in the theater in 1964 to see its premiere thanks to my somewhat bewildered Grandma, who took us and wondered why the girls screamed throughout the entire film. It was a decade or more before I actually heard one scrap of dialogue or music when they played the film on television finally. I was and still am a huge Beatles fan- you cannot imagine if you are under 50 years old the massive change of culture the British Invasion brought. I always have to steel myself at the end when they play 'She Loves You' or else I'll cry like a baby. It still gets me. Great film. Great band. Great era.

You said it! One of the greatest 'pop group' films ever made. Stylishly made and it is great to see their humour shining through. The harmonies are sublime. As I read about your reaction to 'She Loves You' I could hear their glorious voices. Tears in my eyes too. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeaaaahhhhh!

Ok. So you planted the seed in my head...just watched Hard Day's Night. Never tire of it. It's so fresh, not at all grotty. I have to say, it's the harmonies on If I Fall that get me going. Innocent days.

I've been watching episodes of Star Trek Continues. I like its optimistic tone. A good bit of escapism.

Blake's Junction 7....again. It's worth a reminder every so often. Martin Freeman is a great VIla.
You're not sulking, I hope?
