Two reviews behind, but at least B for Bicycle Thieves is up. Why I suddenly got an urge for full-on movie nerd this weekend, I'm not sure!  :laugh:

Phooey...I was thinking of doing 12 Angry Men myself...I know, I still could, but I hate to repeat what someone else does...at least during the same marathon.  I'm sure I can find something else for my #.  I just finished watching my second movie...I'll write it up shortly.  Not worried about this one...I doubt too many out there have Audie Murphy westerns...  :tv:

I think my mom has some Audie Murphy westerns.  But I wasn't planning to watch them.

The Duel at Silver Creek (1952)  77m
Director: Don Siegel
Cast: Audie Murphy, Faith Domergue, Stephen McNally, Gerald Mohr, Susan Cabot, Lee Marvin

Hey, this movie came out the year I was born...this DVD has a terrific-looking print of this 58-year old movie, though it has no extras apart from the theatrical trailer.  The movie deals with a large group of claim jumpers who force miners to give up deeds to their claims...and often repay them by killing them.  Audie Murphy plays a young man whose father is killed...he winds up the deputy of the fast-drawing sheriff.  The action is fast and furious in this oater filled with gunplay and horse chases.  For some reason, most of the main cast members have nickhames...Audie is The Silver Kid, the sheriff is known as Lightning, a couple of the bad guys are Rat Face and Johnny Sombrero and the girls are referred to as Dusty and Brown Eyes.  One fly in the ointment for the good guys is the marshal has suffered a wound and can no longer pull the trigger on his six-gun with his good hand.  Of course, you know the good guys are going to prevail...right?   ;D

I saw two films yesterday.

Toy Story 2: Again, gaining through repeated viewings. Kind of interesting to see it after watching Part 3 followed by Part 1 last week. We (my friend who saw it first time and I) saw where it was going, then where it came from, now the dots got connected :laugh:

Kill Bill Vol. 2: After seeing Vol. 1 last week we needed to conclude the story. A much slower movie than part 1, it still has great set pieces in between. On repeated viewing it falls a little apart at the end, when the dialog isn't as fresh anymore and indeed the feeling creeps in whether a man that looks like David Carradine would really read Superman comic books and would talk about it like that. :shrug: Still liking it overall.

   I wonder if we will ever get a release of The Whole Bloody affair. While I have seen the Tea House scene in color, I would still like to see how it goes if shown all at once with the then unnecessary bits taken out (some of the end of part 1 and the introduction of part 2). Without a plethora of special features I wouldn't buy it though either. Same goes for the Grindhouse film (which is/was available in Japan).

Forgot to update this thread! But I'm surprised, this marathon is moving well along for me this time!

Watched and reviewed Harry Potter Years 1, 2 & 3 last saturday.

Watched Fanboys and The Voyeur yesterday evening (there was a thread about odd combination? Let me tell you, this fits the bill! You can't be much more opposite than that!)

That makes it 9 movies watched - 18 to go!
