Oh, no, I'm talking about an actual movie vending machine that is red in color. Hence, Redbox.

The Four Feathers (1939) -- a truly classic movie. I highly recommend it.

You can watch it here:

About the movie:




They put a LOT of effort into the battle scenes, with a cast of thousands, and hundreds of camels. It makes one wonder why the British were so keen on colonial wars all over the world.

I saw the remake with the late Heath Ledger. Very good movie.

Surprising! We in the east side of the Cascades are always beating ourselves up comparing ourselves to the west side when it comes to technology and popular culture.

All of the other folk here that said nice things about the film were right!



I saw the font and had to laugh.

I'm glad you enjoyed the font but grateful you admitted laughing at my Hugo Weaving joke—I was afraid no one would catch it!

Hideous Kinky. Kate Winslet stars as an English woman who brings her two daughters to live in poverty in Morocco. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0136244

"The Last Queen" on the plane to Japan. About a Sultan's wife in the Ottoman Empire who inherits political power after the murder of her husband.

I think the movie was based on a true story? I really liked it :heart:

Charade (1963)

Good/excellent film.

So why was it riffed on Rifftrax? First it is in public domain. Second, Rifftrax released it around Valentines day, and it was riffed by Mike Nelson and his wife Bridget Nelson. Usually Bridget riffs with Mary Jo Pehl and Mike riffs with Kevin Murphy and Bill Colbett. So Mike and Bridget together is special. For those that don't know, Mike Nelson was head writer on Mystery Science Theater decades ago and that is where he met Bridget Jones, who was also a writer on the show.

The movie was good, and the riffing was good, and whenever Walter Matthau says his lines, my brain says Homer Simpson?

Dan Castellaneta doing Walter Matthau for the voice of Homer Simpson

Okay. Here is a 20 minute tangent.

The Mirror Crack'd (1980)

Agatha Christie story with Angela Lansbury as Miss Marple. That is specifically why I watched. It was pre Jessica Fletcher (Murder, She Wrote), and I'd read that unlike other Miss Marples, hers was full of gumption and strength (my paraphrasing). I still have a soft spot for Joan Hickson's Miss Marple.

"The Hound of Baskervilles" starring Christopher Lee.

A Sherlock Holmes movie from the old days of cinema. I enjoyed it.

Blame it on Rio, 1984



Very entertaining. There is a similar French movie, Un moment d'égarement



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=927WIgchjU0

This 2018 version is a remake of an earlier French version, which also served as the basis of the Blame it on Rio movie.

The 2018 version also made a big deal of legal age of consent. I guess we never really gave statutory rape much of a thought back in the 1980s.
