Movies & Reviews

   MeiDei  OK - how about something totally different - name these characters and/or title from the UK TV show that has just been released as a full length movie
   34 minutes ago .

   MeiDei  Which film had such a lukewarm reception at the time of its release that it remained relatively unseen for decades?
"The Man Who Knew Too Much"
   19 hours ago .

   MeiDei  Guess this one isn't a no-brainer - a specialist ie., an Ear Nose Throat doctor : )
46 minutes ago .

   MeiDei  Here's one we've done b/4 - how is your memory...
What 1956 classic by John Ford, features John Wayne on a quest to kill the Indian who abducted his niece?
Yesterday at 08:12 EST .

   Safetydude  That would be "The Searchers" with The Duke and Ward Bond.
That's all I remember.
23 hours ago .

   MeiDei  You're on a roll Safety - the Duke is proud.
19 hours ago .

   MeiDei  This murder mystery was the most expensive film produced in the 1980s:
"Friday the 13th"
"The Shining"
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit"
Friday at 07:00 EST .

   MeiDei  "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" had a budget of $70 million, making it the most expensive film of the 1980s. Incidentally, it also had the longest on-screen credits for a film of that era.
Yesterday at 07:59 EST .

   MeiDei  In what film did John Wayne play Davey Crocket?
Thursday at 18:28 EST .

   GO3  The Alamo (1960 ).
Friday at 04:37 EST .

   MeiDei  Yes! I'm impressed - what makes you remember the year?
Friday at 06:51 EST .

   GO3  I just wanted to distinguish it from the Alamo movie made in 2004 - I think.
Yesterday at 10:47 EST .

   MeiDei  The movie rights to which murder mystery novel were purchased before the book even hit the shelves?
"Presumed Innocent"
"Clear and Present Danger"
"The Cable Guy"
July 21 at 00:27 EST .

   Gram77  I haven't the faintest as to the correct answer, but because Presumed Innocent was my favorite of all the choices that is my answer.
Thursday at 15:35 EST .

   MeiDei  You know what happens when you jump in with your best guess?? You WIN!
BTW - director Sydney Pollack bought the film rights for $1 million.
Thursday at 17:45 EST .

   MeiDei  Who played the Sheriff in "High Noon"?
July 20 at 20:38 EST .

   Safetydude  Sheriff ???

The Gary Cooper character was; 'Marshall' Will Kane.
July 20 at 23:15 EST .

   MeiDei  Another "trick" question - excellent catch. You are not 'forsaken' ... here's your trailer
July 21 at 00:12 EST .

   MeiDei  Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar for her portrayal of Greta in the movie adaptation of which Agatha Christie murder mystery?
"Murder on the Orient Express"
"The House on Haunted Hill"
"The Maltese Falcon"
July 20 at 19:16 EST .

   Safetydude  She was 'Greta Ohlsson'(a character based, I think, on Greta Garbo )in the 1974 version of "Murder On The Orient Express".
Too many 'A List' stars for me to remember.
A fun movie; well worth the time to watch.
July 20 at 20:15 EST .

   MeiDei  Well done! Sort of a trick question, the other 2 films aren't Christie related. I forget who played Poirot in this version.
July 20 at 20:37 EST .

   Safetydude  He was a British song 'n dance guy. No name.
July 20 at 23:13 EST .

   MeiDei  I found this: "Albert Finney (just awful as a constipated pug of a Poirot )" - an unimpressed critic no doubt who had nothing good to say about anyone but Bergman.
July 21 at 01:28 EST .

   MeiDei  For me here is only one Poirot and that's David Suchet.
Here's why:
Thursday at 15:40 EST .

   Safetydude  I like Peter Ustinov as Poirot in "Death On The Nile".
David Suchet's Poirot doesn't seem to have much of a sense of humor.
Thursday at 21:00 EST .

   MeiDei  Suchet is a master of the "twinkling" of the eye when amused or trying to be amusing - very nuanced. I always liked Ustinov in period pieces.
Yesterday at 08:09 EST .

   MeiDei  OK - we've done the movie before. Name the movie - the three actors & the country w/the request
   July 19 at 13:11 EST .

   MeiDei  Hint - think a Disney pachyderm ... why most people are in hospitals, & what happens when you can't hold something.
July 20 at 09:49 EST .

   MeiDei  This is "Operation Dumbo Drop" - 3 actors are Danny Glover, Ray Liotta & Dennis Leary - in Viet Nam.
July 20 at 14:05 EST .

   GO3  Speaking of Mel Gibson a few posts down, his character in the Lethal Weapon series, Martin Riggs, liked to watch reruns of which classic show:

a. Our Gang
b. The Bowery Boys
c. Abbott and Costello
d. The Three Stooges
July 18 at 13:52 EST .

   MeiDei  Funny, I can remember Mel on the sofa in Danny's house watching something w/delight but darn if I can "see" the TV screen. Best guess: either C or D. : ) [based on personal preference].
July 19 at 11:38 EST .

   GO3  Good guess; it's D. One clue without seeing his tv is he does a Stooge routine at the drug pushers tree lot at the beginning of the first movie. He was also a fan of Looney Tunes.
