About This Club

A club dedicated to true movie lovers. Discussions, favorite clips, sleepers.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Best scene in the movie. One of the best scenes in ANY sports movie. He's the anti-Marty.
  3. That arrow going through him was the 2nd worse poking in that movie.
  4. Michael Lewis, who wrote the book it's based on, is one of my favorite writers. He also wrote The Blind Side and The Big Short, both excellent films and books. I really enjoyed Moneyball despite not being a baseball fan. I do like baseball movies because they tend to boil baseball down to the bits where something interesting happens. That someone could make a good movie about baseball statistics is mind boggling. Adam McCay is a genius.
  5. It’s on my list but I haven’t seen it yet. Definitely need to soon
  6. One of my all time favorite sports movies, even though there's almost no sports in the entire film. But man, do those scenes with the daughter draaaaaaaag. I've re-watched it about 3 times and forward through those parts every time, and it's about a half hour shorter, which is perfect.
  7. Anyone seen MoneyBall. When it came out I liked it. Recently I revisited and man does it hold up, especially now with analytics taking over all sports.
  8. I LOVE this movie. Burt Reynolds is dreamy. Lots of redneck rape. Two thumbs up.
  9. Arthur Smith being mentioned as a possible Head Coach candidate for the Georgia (Atlanta) Falcons led me down this rabbit hole. The movie and song are classics. Thanks in part to local celebrity, Arthur Smith. He used to produce his Country Music Show in a studio on the corner of Monroe Road and N. Sharon Amity during the 1970s.
  10. Truly a legendary director. We watched Blue Velvet in film class back in the 90s when I was in college.
  11. We saw it and felt it was pretty good. Definitely worth a watch for free.
  12. Director Leigh Whannell has come a very very long way since his involvement in the Saw series. I hope he has something else in the works. Check this one out. It's not what you are expecting.
  13. The same dude that directed Black Christmas also directed A Christmas Story!
  14. Really into David Lynch films lately... Extremely unique director/writer, strange stories that are up for interpretation and some of the best cinematography and directing I've ever seen. If you've seen the original Twin Peaks series then "the Return" is a must and I consider it a long film, not a tv series despite being 18 "episodes" on showtime. His other films I've seen in order, all of which I'd highly recommend: 1. Mulholland Drive (one of my favorite movies ever, have watched it like 5+ times in the last year; not a simple watch, a lot going on and a lot to think about and digest but
  15. Wow, Black Xmas is a classic. Love that movie.
  16. I love hitchcock and somehow have not seen this. Thanks!
  17. "I want peace on earth on and goodwill towards men." "We are the United States government. We don't DO that sort of thing!"
  18. Alfred Hitchcock (1938) Normally I wouldn't recommend an obscure classic movie in a forum like this just to prove some movie buff bona fides. After all, I watched it for the first time last year on VHS while staying at a guest house in Poolesville that had a VCR instead of wifi. But this movie is available on HBO Max right now! And I can't recommend it highly enough. It's so fun, and funny, and full of mystery and suspense from Mr. Hitchcock. The romantic leads have such great chemistry (which is made even better by the fact that they famously despised each other on set). It's really
  19. Yeah my gal loves that movie too
  20. Thanks, I will check it out. I watched Drop Dead Fred last night. My brothers and I loved it growing up and it's still funny. Whole bunch of jokes I didn't get as a kid.
  21. One of my favortie movie scenes of all time. Just perfect start to finish.
  22. So I watched 1974's Black Christmas last month for the first time and I cannot believe I had never seen it before. It is one of the first true slasher films, predating even the original Halloween. Myself, my gal, and my teenage boys loved it. Really holds up. Highly Recommended
