"i'm gonna agree with a few others here on the reccomendations for The Dyes and The Black Belles. I saw the Black Belles recently at a local bar and they were pretty boss. Pussycat & the Dirty Johnsons are pretty neat, too."
"I have'nt seen " Vampyr '' in a long time. I'd forgotten there was no dialogue (And this was 1932.). The Criterion Collection has a 2 DVD set. I keep waiting for the price to go down a little. Sound film was'nt like…"
"a friend of mine is a big Vampyr fan, so thats where i heard of it for the first time. He vastly prefers it to Nosferatu, and demanded that i check it out, haha.also, that's quite the fun fact about the guy that played the…"
"The Golem , of course , is an all time classic , and , it seems , not readily available until the 90's. What's ironic is , Paul Wegener , who played the legendary Jewish hero - monster, later became the official Actor for The Nazi Party."
"I'm just two episodes into Boardwalk Empire, and so far, so good. I'm a big Buscemi fan in general, though. The only other cast member I recognized right off was Kelly Macdonld from Trainspotting and No Country for Old Men.
"I actually have not seen The Golem, though I've been meaning to for a while. I appreciate the link, which saves me the effort of the search. I've been checking out some old documentaries, as well. I watched Nanook of the North (which has…"
"i have not seen No Time for Sergeants, though i will add that to my list of shit to check out. Andy Griffith jams in A Face in the Crowd. I was impressed. As far as old cartoons, they always catch my attention. The older they are, the more…"
I've recently been on quite the old film kick. What are some of your favorites? I've been checking out shorts as well as full length films, mostly made before the 60's, although I won't say to limit suggestions by that. I saw on another discussion that someone had mentioned "A Face In the Crowd" with Andy Griffith, which I watched last night and thoroughly enjoyed. I think that one was made around '57 (a few years before he did the Andy Griffith Show). I've also been checking out stuff from the…See More
" Hrm...as for movies, i'm gonna throw these out there: TerrorVision (horror/comedy), Bubba Ho-Tep (horror/comedy), Ghost World (dark comedy), Buffalo '66 (dark comedy/drama), The Runaways (about the runaways, joan jett…"
I'm pretty much a cynical asshole. I'd steer clear of me, if I were you.

"Jymn , There may be an element of truth to that , in that , yes , the other two were availabe in America , but , only as imports , of course. It does'nt make sense to say "Future" is available everywhere but North America…"
"I've read a few comments on the infamous Steve Hoffman forum, talking more about the music than the quality of the release. One review was from someone who bought it in LA. So it seems that it is released. What confuses me John, is that the Ace…"
