I'm reminded of "Thieves Like Us," if not "They Live by Night".

"I have a copy of the film on videotape. One of my favorite scenes was edited out of the print it was made from. The hero and heroine are drifting down the river on a boat. They're sitting in the moonlight, and Pongo is following the boat in the jungle, making quite a racket as he snaps small trees, hurls aside boulders, and rustles through the underbrush, to keep up with the boat. He's framed by the profiles of the hero and heroine, in the background. The hero looks deeply into the heroine's eyes and says, dreamily, "Quiet out here in the river, isn't it?" I hope the DVD has that one left in."

BLOOD TIDE (1982): A honeymooner tracks his missing sister to a remote Greek island where the weirdo locals and expats are hunting for treasure and dealing with a sea monster. James Earl Jones' performance as a drunken, "Othello" quoting archeologist is the only point of interest in this cheap and poorly designed creature feature that blatantly rips off better movies.

What about the scene where Lydia "Too Close For Comfort" Cornell does stretching exercises on the beach in a bikini?  TeddyR

I stand corrected.  Thumbup If she had actually had a nude scene I would have bumped it up a star.

The owner states that it will remain as a film theatre, although the departure of the Astor people will mean the loss of their entire bank of films and the general Astor experience.  The building owner is going to be in for a shock if he thinks someone similar will come on board, given the history of what has been happening.

And yes, I'm in Melbourne, Dean.   Thumbup


Nice to note another local!  But yeah given what happened to the George I really doubt it.  Ah well.  On a plus side I think there's about a ton of small pop up film nights around, more so when summer starts kicking in.  Won't replace the Astor but its a nice salve all the same.

But, as you pointed out, nothing in history is as simple as it seems.


Which was my only point, and after realizing it could have been so simply stated, actually regretted typing rambling, tangential diatribe that would be rendered relevant only with much longer discussion.

(Edit: No argument the wealthy southerners sure did not help the ex-slave cause, either.  I'm not denying that at all.  But I will say that "carpetbaggers" are STILL a problem here, at least in scope and principle.  Opportunists with no cultural tie to a region, any region, are rarely acting in the interest of the people that have lived there.  As we both agree, the 'full story' is very, very complicated.)

Ruby (1992): the film about the bar owner who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I heard that people had it suppressed so as not to compete with Oliver Stone's JFK but Danny Aiello was good as Ruby and the film was good, not great, but good.  Smile

Dark Space (2013) - in the future, some kids crash their shuttle on a remote planet and soon find themselves caught in the middle of a lower budget version of Avatar. Characters were passable (barely), plot was interesting for a bit until you figured out they were just ripping off another movie. Special effects were slightly above your average direct-to-video standards. 3/5.

The Ward (2011) - a girl burns down a house and gets put in the insane asylum. Soon we learn there's a ghost about that's killing the patients. The last 5 minutes of this is a really good twist ending which I didn't see coming at all. Unfortunately you have to sit through 85 minutes of a very mediocre movie to get to it. The main character wasn't likable, none of the characters were developed, the ghost wasn't scary, and for something directed by John Carpenter it had a complete lack of atmosphere. 3/5.

Logan's Run (1977–1978) - finished watching the TV series based on the movie. Logan (Gregory Harrison) and Jessica (Heather Menzies) escape from the city of domes, find a cool futuristic car, and travel from place to place getting into adventures. They meet up with an android (Donald Moffat) who joins them on their search for sanctuary. This was kind of made for kids; it's real simple, the characters lack any depth (they're just really good and nice), and all the episodes are pretty much the same - meet a group of people who seem friendly at first, then we find they've got a dark secret and want to kill or perform horrible experiments on our characters, and around the 55 minute mark they make their escape. About half the episodes have the other Sandmen from the city of domes chasing after them too. But it does have its retro charm to be sure. And you can't help but fall in love with Heather Menzies, she's just so cute and nice and she's got the most awesome hair in the entire world TeddyR 3.5/5.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
