[quote=“ENNIOO, post:3740, topic:370”]Great cast to a western that will probably be never made:

Haha! Is this a joke?

I managed to get my hands on two tickets for the Ennio Morricone concert “50 years of music” in Stuttgart two weeks ago. My gosh, it was goosebumpingly breathtaking to see and hear the maestro performing his music with his orchestra live and direct. Needlessly to say he got standing ovation and played several encores. As DJ Cosmic from International Pony has put it: “Mille, mille gracia per la sua musica grande signore Morricone!”

While reading a John Boorman to a newspaper (yeah I still read those), I had to share something he says about the main different between films in the 70’s and those made these days
He said that Star Wars happen, the success made by films like Star Wars and made the studios realize that the main audience were 14 years old teens, so most films made after are targeted to that specific public. Today there’s no middle ground the mainstream stuff are all blockbuster or at least try to be, and the so called “artistic movies” are down below made without money (except in France).

The thing is that films like Point Blank or Hell in the Pacific were mainstream back in the sixties, today they would be impossible for a great audience.

This word are wise and and heart-warming for me, my friends (some at least), and even my wife think I’m a bit weird because I mostly watch “old"movies, like they call those that weren’t made in the last year, but I know that I’m not a 14 year old anymore, I once was but I’m not anymore.

I’ve just bought a laptop which has Windows 8 which, alas, doesn’t allow you to watch DVDs via Windows Media Player. I’m looking to downlode freeware to play DVDs; does anyone have any recommendations? Can anyone vouch for the quality of VLC player (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.en_GB.html)?


(Bad Lieutenant) #3747

VLC will play almost everything. Recommended!


(Asa) #3748

Yup, VLC is a “must have” item on any PC as far as I’m concerned. Whenever I get a new computer:

  1. Put the Norton/McAfee/Kaspersky trial in the bin
  2. Download AVG antivirus (free version)
  3. Download VLC

Download VLC with confidence, Mr. Welles.

Just put Windows 10 on my spare computer, think I will leave Windows 7 on the one I use now.

Alot of tweaking I had to do on Windows 10 including alot of privacy issues, read here :


(scherpschutter) #3754

I’ll stick to windows 8 (I think it’s 8, but not sure) for the moment.

Not sure where to put this, but I have the UV code of the 4K remaster of Apollo 13 that came with Universal’s recent BD (which is superb quality). Is anyone interested in purchasing/trading it? Please PM me.

A really good (IMO) little movie mashup:

A quote attributed to Sir Thomas Beecham went along the lines of “you should try everything once except incest and morris dancing”.

As somebody who subscibes to this belief, I find it somewhat ironical that having suffered the last two days n’ nights with godawful toothache, I finally got the bugger pulled to find out that they’re holding a mass morris dancing day literally yards from my house!
For those of you continental types that probably don’t suffer this sort of flowers-in-their-hats’ (the men) and big-bushy-beards (the women) nonsense-with-bells-on pagan fertility stuff,* I have taken a pic…
Included in it (to give a sense of scale) is my tooth. I know it seems a bit weird keeping it. It’s caused me some pain, and cost me some money, but I’ve grown quite attatched to the little blighter over the years (bit like the cm). ::slight_smile:
Anyway, from one cause of pain to another…

[size=8pt]* Oh God! Here we go again - The priory of the Golden Apples - would like to say that whilst it allows free speech amongst its brethren, in no way does it condone this sort of stereotypical view and it is not representative of its attitude to community-cohesion. Men with flowers, and women with beards are welcome at the priory (providing they abstain from the fertility stuff during daylight hours). I think we’re even ok about incest (but I’ll have to check).[/size]

I was hoping to see you dressed up in the gear, Rod :smiley:


(Reverend Danite) #3759

The shame!
I was watching and barely understanding the tv program Only Connect on brit-tv just now. One team was called the Spaghetti Westerners who were up against a bunch of trainspotters… and fuck*n’ lost.

I trust it’s not any of us! :stuck_out_tongue: :wink:

Hey, ain’t this where Brother Chris Casey does his reenactment thing?
