If you're looking for inspiration for what to watch, use this thread, the last ten movies I've watched have been recommended from here.The Raven
with Vincent Price -
In fact, I'd been finding it harder and hard to torrent stuff to the point where I just gave up. I don't really like watching films anyway.
Then someone sent me a link. Unsolicited. And it's like a netflix kind of free for all. I spent about 2 hours the other night trying to find something to watch. After you've watched Narcos and Vikings and LOTR and god knows what else (not much), then it's all a bit of a let down. Kid in the candy store but nothing takes your fancy.
Then I found the old Vincent Price filums.
Pit and the Pendulum et al. You know the ones. God some of them are really bad. But all really well shot and a beautiful example of the time.
I scratched my head as I watched them: did I watch this in black 'n' white or full colour? I think I must have watched them in Black 'n' White.
Brings back strange memories of being a young boy. Tired at night.
The Quatermass Experiment!
I think that might have been the first time I learned to respect authority!
Better them than me, going down that dark deep pit!
And it never ended well for them.
It was a cheering night's entertainment drifting back down memory lane I can tell you!
I never realised what a truly great actor Vincent Price was before.
Could do very sinister, or very camp, or very innocent, or very sexy!
And could be very funny too.
I tried to watch some other of his films like 'House of 1000 Dolls', but they didn't show up in the feed.
Not sure how much longer this Netflix rip-off will work, but it's an interesting proposition having all the world's media at your fingertips, and the best you can come up with is old Vincent Price Movies.
Oh, I watched Joker too. Meh. Was Ok.
I have no interest at all in any modern 'cinema'.
Jack Warner (Inspector Lomax ) in Quatermass!
Now we're talking.
Got to be up there with little Alex getting snot flobbed in his face by that hard bastward copper:
The lamb-chop sideboards are still a nice touch to this day.
