I don't watch a lot of films. As for Stephen King films, I remember watching and really enjoying "Thinner" a couple of years ago. Shawshank gets a lot of praise, and I read and loved the book. The movie might not seem as great to me having read the book, but I'd like to prove myself wrong sometime soon.

I've been obsessing over American Hustle since I saw it last week.  Wouldn't be surprised at all if that takes the Best Picture Oscar.

At the moment?  If you are talking about recent films, I have seen Wolf of Wall St., Walter Mitty, Her, and August/Osage.

In order of favorite to least favorite;  Her, Mitty, August, Wolf.  I found Her hypnotic and fascinating, Mitty as very entertaining and beautifully filmed, August a bit Tenessee Williams, and Wolf disgusting and way too long.  Don't bother with Wolf.  Just watch Goodfellas  along with Wall Street again.  Two superior movies and it will only take an additional hour over the excruciating 3 hours of the Wolf.  I like DeCaprio and Scorcese but not this time and not this movie.

Haven't seen Her. Doesn't look very good, some guy talking to his computer like it's his girlfriend, ugh. Wolf was GREAT! Lots of tits and ass. Mitty started so badly, I thought I might have to walk out, but it did turn out to be a really good movie. Haven't seen August, either; I hear good acting buit a real downer, from the folks I've taked to. Nebraska was pretty slow( almost as slow as Inside Llewyn Davis) but the son seemd to be a good actor. Bruce Dern mostly mumbled and shuffled, which doesn't seem to be too much great acting to me. Lone Survivor was really good. American Hustle I enjoyed a lot! But ANYTHING with Jennifer Lawrence is worth seeing, and thro in Amy Adams and Christian Bale? WHoaa....  Best done movie seen recently, The Book Thief.

'Salem's Lot - Tobe Hooper's one great film outside of TCM. Very creepy for a tv movie.

Also it may be the furthest thing from great but I heartily recommended Maximum Overdrive which King himself directed. It gets trashed but the first 30 minutes or so are very entertaining.
Have you seen the newer take of "Salem's Lot"? For some odd reason, I didn't reach my hands on buying the old one (much as I'm a fan of Tobe), but I did enjoy the modern version, though it wasn't necessarily scary, just interesting plot & acting. But now you mentioned, this time I won't miss on watching that other "Salem's Lot".

I like "Maximum Overdrive" too! Glad I'm not alone on it. The bit when the bridge unfolds while there's still motion is way cool! People sliding up & down & watermelon crashing into the back window of the packed car is hilarious. Also some odd-looking couple after just getting married or on the way to the church being fooled by a mad car who plays with them cat-and-mice either going calm or all of a sudden come out spying up the poor.

Just finished watching "Eraserhead", famous cult movie. I'm quite puzzled about the plot, what's the moral behind of it, and all the characters seemed so dumb. That said, I liked the movie, the plane noises were so cool! The whole time I've been tricked into a thought that I'm flying, complete with takeoff & landing. The music Henry played in his flat was weirdly beautiful (or beautifully weird). For some reason, I felt sorry for a fish-born baby, he was cute in a way & didn't deserve to die. The same cannot be said about worms: I hate them & I don't know why the girl from radiator cutely smiled while stepping on them - oh wait, that was her show! Even grosser moment appeared when Henry got worms out of Mary. Good thing the movie had funny moments too for the balance, f.ex., when Henry walks on the way home & his right foot gets stuck in the mud, it turns out later to be the left one, because the weirdo undresses his left sock to dry it on the radiator. Then we have the finale where his head falls to the ground, a little boy finds it, hands it over to his boss & by strange circumstances it's all that needed for making erasers! The director must've been a crazy genius if he came up with that bit (or entire movie). But of course, the dinner scene was boring (could care less about chicken moving boots, static granny & psychotic mother) & I didn't respect Mary for leaving the child in a sick condition. 7/10.

That's not the internet.  That's AMC.  They always cut off the song for the totally inane "On the next Mad Men" segments.

I can't see the 1st film poster. I tried to copy/paste the image link in another tab to see what it is, but still nothing. So, Rei?

Chinatown

Watched this for the first time a few weeks ago Shocked truly a masterpiece.

Empire Of The Sun. Total Tearjerker

John Williams' score works perfectly with this movie. One of the best scenes in movie history when the P-51s fly over the camp.

Summer in Paradise. Sorry, I get as far as "way back when when the master plan was having Fun Fun Fun and America's band", and there's no way in hell I'm listening to the rest of it. Don't insult me telling me I'm missing anything.

'Hot Fuzz', 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' all by Edgar Wright. Love his style.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.
