Another 70's movie with a great car chase is nearly-forgotten. It's called "The Seven-Ups", starring Roy Schieder (who was also in "The French Connection").

And no, it has nothing to do with the 7-Up soft drink! [Smile]

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0070672/

It was the only movie ever directed by Philip D'Antoni, who produced both "Bullitt" and "The French Connection."

If you want a comedy car chase, try the 1972 movie "What's Up, Doc?", with Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal.

This one sounds very familiar... I'll have to check into it...

Thanks... [Smile]

This is one of the best car chase scenes in the history of movies (I think). It's from a 1990 movie called "Short Time". It's about a cop who thinks he is going to die soon because his medical records get mixed up with someone else. In order for his wife to collect his pension or insurance money, he must die in the line of duty so he trys to get killed but can't. You have to see this whole movie if you haven't.

Speaking of Pryor.... I watched THE MACK a couple of days ago, with the audio comm on, and the stories Max Julien had about Richard Pryor were priceless!

He was one crazy mofo!

a couple of the most recently watched movies for me has been from the 50s the Alfred Hitch**** classic "Rear Window" what a great movie with a suspense that slowly builds up through the whole movie. Totally deserves its classic status.

Then last night I watched the 1966 classic from Sergio Leone "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It's currently rated #4 over at IMdB of the best movies of all time. Not sure if I would rate it that high myself but it is a very incredible movie. Eli Wallach's portrayal of Tuco is truly one of the most remarkable performances I've ever seen.

Today I added to my classic movie collections by adding Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia and Once Upon a Time in the West to my collection.

With me acquiring Casablanca I own the Top 10 movies over at IMdB. Keep in mind that the list fluctuates regurlarly.

The last movie from the 70's that I watched is "Death Weekend"....It is a scary movie...with Brenda Vaccarro...and it has Don Stroud in it...he was the priest in The Amityville Horror.

Death Weekend isn't really a "horror" movie....it's more like a thriller...but it is so creepy.

Believe it or not last night I finally watched The Godfather for the first time from start to finish. Thought it was a great movie. A lot of people consider it one of the best if not the best movies of all time. I wouldn't put it that high but it definitely deserves all the praise it's received.

I also own The Godfather Part II & The Godfather Part III So I have my next two nights movies all planned out. From what I hear some people actually feel that The Godfather Part II is superior to the first one.

Michael Corleone: I know it was you Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!!!!

Fredo Corleone: I'm your older brother, Mike, and I was stepped over!

Michael Corleone: That's the way Pop wanted it.

Fredo Corleone: It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!

Michael Corleone: Fredo, you're nothing to me now. You're not a brother, you're not a friend. I don't want to know you or what you do. I don't want to see you at the hotels, I don't want you near my house. When you see our mother, I want to know a day in advance, so I won't be there. You understand?

Fredo sleeps with the fishes... [Cool]

So I watched The Godfather Part II last night. Very very good movie eapecially for a sequel. But I think I prefer the first one more.

Tonight I plan on either watching The Godfather Part III, which is supposed to be good but nowhere near as good as the first two, or the 1962 Oscar winning best picture Lawrence of Arabia Leaning towards Lawrence of Arabia all three hours forty seven minutes of it.

I agree. The first one is better. The second one is overall very good, but certain sequences stand out better than the entire movie.

The Godfather Part III was a big letdown. Sofia Coppola's performance (as Al Pacino's daughter) was laughable. But to be fair, she was brought in at the last minute after Winona Ryder was too ill just before filming started.

See Lawrence Of Arabia instead. [Smile]

Finally got to see OVER THE EDGE, and it was hands down one of the best teen/youth movies I have ever seen! I never expected it to be this good! Awesome movie!
