    best permorance by a real athlete in a movie

    Fred Williamson of all the blaxploitation films, the film MASH, and many other things was a star in the old AFL and had an infamous role in Super Bowl I. I can't believe no one mentioned O.J. in The Towering Inferno :)

    "The HTF 100 Great Films of the 1930's Challenge"

    It is interesting to see people's lists compared to each other. For me this is certainly grading on the curve. There's not a single film on this list that's not interesting. The films that get one star are better than at least half of the new films in the last few years. Of Robin Hood, it is...

    RIP Marlon Brando

    Definitely sad news. Netfix put On the Waterfront in the mail yesterday. So I'll celebrate his wonderful career with a rewatch this weekend.

    Directors The Ripoff/Sequel "Uncool" Tournament

    Being forced to listed... speed traps are evil but having to listen to Britney and clones would be hell. Exploding Soda so far spicy food doesn't bother me or my weekly extra spicy Chinese dinners would have to go.

    "The HTF 100 Great Films of the 1930's Challenge"

    Blood of a Poet :star: - What a strange film to end this challenge on. I don't really know what to say other than pretentious. It is amateurish but I did enjoy the visuals to enough degree that I am interested in going through the extras on the Criterion disc and the subsrquent two films. And...

    Eric - I hadn't thougth about it but bowling is certainly more integeral to the plot of Lebowski as the sport is to Finding Forester or Hurricane. Steve - It could have been worse. They could have put that great auto racing epic Driven on the list. :)

    The current appeal of Documentaries?

    That was my thougth also. I also had to wonder how much business it did in New York. :) As a Cub and Ranger fan, I don't have much sympathy for the Red Sox.

    Directors Screenshot Contest (Yet Another)

    The response I got was even more definitive, "Outlook, When Hell freezes over." I'm so bad at this you could show me a picture of Malcolm McDowell wearing all white with a bowler hat and I'd still have no clue.

    ESPN Top 25 Sports Movies

    I just have a problem with films like Field of Dreams or Bang the Drum Slowly being classified as sports films. In films like these the sport is either a metaphor or ancillary to the main action. I agree, both Breaking Away and The Sandlot should be on the list. Cobb? Only to induce sleep.

    The current appeal of Documentaries?

    Box office mojo lists 111 documentaries (excluding IMAX, and concert) that have grossed more than $100,000. In 2004, 10 docs have achieved this mark. Another film is still in release and should be into six figures this week. In addition there are four more recent releases that have the high...

    "The HTF 100 Great Films of the 1930's Challenge"

    The Blue Angel :star: :star: :star: – A very powerful film that is for anyone that complains about today’s Hollywood Happy Endings. A little over half-way through the film I had an idea where the film was going but that did not lessen any of the impact. Emil Jannings gives a terrific...

    Dinner at Eight :star: :star: :star: – I waited a couple of days to think about what to say about this film. This film has some great parts that don’t quite add up to great film. It is still a very good film that I just didn’t enjoy as much as some of the other people on the list. I think I...
