Hmmmm ..

Braveheart ... fun, but absolute historical bunk ... Wallace did nae ever fight in a kilt on a golf course in Ireland ...

Rob Roy ... another historically wrong movie. Enjoyable, but off the beat ... (and I'm a MacGregor)

Now ... a delightful, and somewhat accurate tale was the movie Mrs. Brown ...



I can not comprehend why Hollywood wants to change Celtic History (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, etc ...) when the truth is SOOOO much more in depth and involving.

well .. there be my two pence.

I'm always disappointed when I see movies like Braveheart and Rob Roy & then find out they're not historically accurate... it DOES seem like the truth would be worth sticking to, doesn't it?? rolleyes.gif
Oh well.

Now what in the world is this movie Tristan and Isolde?? Where have I heard those names before...

"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

I saw Mrs. Brown the other night and it was a surprise for me to be that interested in a movie with so little blood.

It's good, isn't it?!? Billy Connolly is one of the most unique personalities I have EVER seen... he's a riot as a comedian, but then he goes & makes some serious films sometimes too. I love his Glaswegian burr!
If you look up the word 'bizarre' in the dictionary, Billy's photo ought to be there! Take a look at his web site; it takes a bit to download but its worth it - it's the strangest thing... (I warn ya, there may be some really wierd stuff in there past where I browsed! I don't know but I take no responsibility for recommending the site. cool.gif

One has to go a long way to top this list of movies, so lets go back to 1935 to see a movie called, “THE INFORMER ”. Victor McLaglen plays the lead, and although it may not be easy to find, it’s certainly worth looking for. Come to think of it, any movie with Victor McLaglen is worth seeing.

Last night I saw “Dear Frankie” and I would like to thank whoever suggested this movie, because it moved me to both tears of joy and sorrow. What amazes me is how a heart worming story like this one always seems to get trumped by technology in the box office. No buts about it, Dear Frankie is a must see movie.

Thanks again,
Johnny Clements

The movie Mrs. Brown has been playing on local cable here. It is a very good movie.

There was a movie that I saw years ago with Martin Sheen that I believe was simply called "Da."  Only saw it once but it was a funny movie with a Irish feel.

I have been looking for that movie for years. But I thought Michael Landon and Art Carney played in it.

I just did a goole search and I was wrong. It is called Where Pigeons Go to Die, Michael Landon called his dad (Art Carney) Da. Great movie.

I was so disappointed in Tristan and Isolde. It had so much potential and fell so far afield. Two main points that may have helped the story: Stick closer to the original legend- nothing more romantic than a poet/musician, plus it would have given a little more conflict if he was "forced" to fight.

And 2: James Franco did not do the role justice. All his characters are played in the same stoic style (not to mention the horriffic dying scene). Plus is he really that good looking?

I know i'm being a little critical- I'm a film major, its whats been pounded into my head for the past 4 years. Only 10 weeks left cheers.gif clap.gif holiday.gif

A long time ago - in what seems another lifetime - I, too was film major. After about a year and a half in the program, I realized it wasn't the field for me. But even today I wonder...what could have been?

I'll disagree with you there. I found it really uh unenjoyable. I think the only movie of late that I've found more unenjoyable was Kingdom of Heaven. It took me until the last 1.2 hour to figure out who was exactly on whose side...blah, blah, blah.


"::inlove ...just luv that Keira Knightly though!!! inlove.gif"

So I guess you are seeing/have seen Pride and Prejuidce?

So I guess you are seeing/have seen P & P? I hear her performance was really quite good(and obviously Oscar worthly).
