The Cardinal and Shoes of the Fisherman are very good movies love em.
I have not seen Shoes of the Fisherman but I think I'm going to have to check it out. It looks good and plus I'm a huge Anthony Quinn fan so its one I'm going to watch.
Hey, Anthony Quinn is my favorite actor! Have you seen Barrabas?

My wife and I saw The Blind Side a couple of days ago (local cinema has half-price admission on Tuesdays). A delightful "feel good" type movie. Not great theatrically, but enjoyable. Hollywood glosses over but doesn't quite eliminate the central family's (Evangelical) Christian faith.
Glosses over? It's pretty much front and center. ::)

I'd have to disagree. The centrality of their Christian faith was treated as an aside, not as the focal point of the movie. But I didn't mind that, because it wasn't intended to be a "Christian" movie. Although it would have been nice if they had emphasized it more.

What do you guys think of Lars von Trier films (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lars_von_Trier)? Lesya and I saw "The Element of Crime," "Breaking the Waves," "The Idiots," "Dancer in the Dark," "Dogville," and even though we sometimes do not quite like certain things in these films, we appreciate the scale of this artist. We also saw a few films directed by von Trier's disciples from the "Dogme95" group of cinematographers (can't recall the names of the directors right now, but do recall one name of the film, "(Name), The Donkey Boy" (about the inner world of a young man who has schizophrenia).

Barabbas is one of my favorite movies actually; it is such a great movie. I think it was my third film that I saw with Anthony Quinn in it. The first time I saw him was in Lawrence of Arabia in his classic performance as Auda Abu Tayi which made me become a huge fan of his. He is definitely one of my favorite actors.

Somebody is stealing my Netflix movies out of my mailbox, and then returning them when they are done with them!

Well, first of all, it's written in Chinese. Second, you mentioned that they have available for download movies that are still in theatres, and the only ones who would have such a thing are pirates. So if I were in your position, I'd not download anything else from that site.

That's not the link you provided me with earlier, but that too is a pirate site. So my advice is to avoid both ch131.com and ch.131.com.

The FBI typically only go after the distributors. Just delete anything you might have obtained from that site, including cookies, and don't go back there again, and you should be okay.

That is a really excellent production (also starring Anthony Quinn). Have you seen the later TV mini-series called A.D.? It is a sequal to Jesus of Nazareth that shows the Acts of the Apostles. It is extremly well done.

Sure have I own it. I love those two shows. Both very well done. Anthony Quinn is a good Caiphas.

There is a Catholic website Ignatius press that has the VHS copy and you can get the DVD off netflix. The DVD version has really been edited so I would go with the Ignatius press VHS copy though the set is like six tapes long and quite pricey it is well worth it.

Catchy tunes, aren't they? They just get stuck in your head. I sing this one for my advanced Spanish class when we study the subjunctive mood:

Si yo fuera rico, yaba daba daba daba dibble dibble dibble dum.
Todo el dia seria vagabundo, si yo fuera ricohombre.

Does anyone here like watching foreign films with subtitles? I had been watching a few on Netflix, and I never thought I'd enjoy them for having to read everything being said. I have been pleasantly surprised after veiwing a few films. :)

I've been rewatching old Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes over the past couple days, mostly from Season 6.

i see what you're saying.  I found some VHS on amazon.com.  It says 540 minutes, whereas the dvd's are 360 minutes.  I don't understand why the big difference.  Why couldn't they just make more dvd's?

Anyway, thanks for the VHS suggestion.  I will probably buy the VHS and record them into some dvd's.

My wife and I are used to reading subtitles. We saw almost the entire Fellini, Bergman, Kurosawa and other foreign masters reading the subtitles. It's wonderful to have the auditory impression of the different languages, hear the modulations of the actors' voices, etc., and simultaneously to keep track of the story.

Yeah a lot of scenes. The plot of the show is that it focuses on The Apostles and the Romans and how they converge at the end with the martyrdom of Peter and Paul. But whole sections of the Roman stories are cut out and even some of the Apostles stuff gets hacked. I dont see why they didnt just put the whole thing on dvd.

I watched A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott tonight. It is, in my opinion, the best adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic. My mom actually has eight different film adaptations of A Christmas Carol on VHS that she got out, so I'm going to watch a few of them. I've seen them all before but my favorite of them all is the George C. Scott one which is just amazing.

I've always enjoyed the George Scott one, but whenever I think of Scrooge, I cannot help but think of Alastair Sim.

I have not seen that one in some time but I'm probably going to watch it in a few days. I have always really loved the one with George C. Scott though but after I watch the Alastair Sim one later, I will give my final opinion on the matter. I just love everything about the George C. Scott one though especially the Jacob Marley scene which really scared me as a little kid especially when he untied the kirchief and his mouth falls open which I believe isn't in most of the other film adaptations of the book.
