Treasure of the Four Crowns (1983)
DrFancyPants posted a topic in Bad Movie Recommendationshttps://youtu.be/aY-6uRfwjRY Nothing like a Raiders of the Lost Ark knock off distributed by Canon Films and originally shown in 80s 3D, oh yes, nothing like forced perspective to really get the blood flowing! BONUS: Roger Ebert gave it 2.5 out of 3 stars! Roger Ebert April 26, 1983 | It's fun to find a 3-D movie that doesn't beat around the bush. Within 60 seconds after "Treasure of the Four Crowns" begins, the movie is throwing things at the audience. This is, of course, in the great tradition of 3-D movies that began in 1953 with "Bwana Devil," a horrible movie that made a lot of money by throwing stones, spears and elephants at the audience. You want to get your money's worth
I want the show back
JackChristensen posted a topic in The CanonI miss the show. I used to look forward to it every week. Now I click back and forth from How Did This Get Made? and I Was There Too, and I feel like something is missing. Then I remember "Oh yeah, The Canon. I wish there were more episodes." This will probably be a very unpopular opinion given the climate out there right now, but I think Devin could even come back. Maybe he could offer an apology to everyone he's hurt at the top of the first episode back. Or maybe Amy could continue the show with another co-host, but hopefully someone who is likely to disagree with her often so that we don't lose the dynamic of the show. I don't know, and it might be too soon for everything to have been worked out. But I really miss The Canon.
A Serious Man vs. Inside Llewyn Davis
JordantheG1ng3r posted a topic in Movie SuggestionsTwo Coen masterpieces. One key difference; A Serious Man is about someone who can't accept life crapping on him, Inside Llewyn Davis is about a guy who keeps moving on despite life crapping on him.
MikeSellari posted a topic in The CanonTaking off from the conversation a few episodes back about seeing if there are TV movies that are worthy of being in the canon. The exhibition of a piece of film does not take a way from something being considered. ELEPHANT (2003) won the Palm d'Or, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA (2013) was shown in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. ELEPHANT should definitely be talked about at some point on the show and is technically a TV movie for HBO as is CITIZENFOUR (2014) - also should be discussed- which won both an Academy Award and Primetime Emmy. Other TV movies worth discussing also include AND THE BAND PLAYED ON (1993), 61* (2001), BRIAN'S SONG (1971), THE DAY AFTER (1983), DUEL (1971), and GAME CHANGE (2012). There also are those miniseries that have transcended what a movie and a miniseries is that should be considered canon worthy. A good example of this is IT (1990) is still shown in syndication and is presented as a movie when done so. People still talk about Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise as being one of the scariest movie villains. Even with a new version being made now all the trades always reference this miniseries, Curry's performance, and the fact that it is a remake. I guess I'm saying is that these should still be up for consideration despite where they aired. Thoughts?
Suggestion: The Warriors
macshordo posted a topic in Movie SuggestionsCan you dig it? Walter Hill's made some quality films but this is arguably his most famous. I still really enjoy the film but I think there's a bit to discuss with this one in terms of age, sexism (similar to the arguments of Everybody Wants Some!! I imagine) and why anyone thinks it's a good idea to put a butchered Director's Cut as the films only high definition source.
