Just last night members enjoyed the Where Eagles Dare watchalong. Watching that movie was something we were set on doing together for a long time, but what now? What movies do we want to watch together?
I'd vote for one of the following:
Of those I fancy Red October. I'm not in for MI or Bourne. If Caractacus hadn't just watched North By Northwest I'd suggest that.
I think this thread shouldn't just be about the next film. It may be a year since we first mentioned WED as a watchalong movie. We have to play the long game.
There are many good movies in Gymkata's list. (The GIF's last night were up to the usual standards, thank you very much).
I especially like:
The Bourne Identity
The hunt for Red October
I also want to see the more espionage themed Hitchcock movies such as North by northwest, Notorious, Torn Curtain, Saboteur.
"The bridge on the river Kwai" is a classic.
How do you feel about the new er espionage entries such as Atomic Blonde or Red Sparrow?
Then there are the parodies, especially Jonny English and Austin Powers.
We did the three AUSTIN POWERS movies last year. That's what made me think of the Flint movies.
I could do ATOMIC BLONDE, JOHN WICK, or RED SPARROW. Personally, I thought RED SPARROW was one of the better films of the past 5 years but I'm in the minority on that opinion.
And I'm glad that my gifs were up to usual standards. :)
Red Sparrow could have turned into an exploytation movie focusing only on Jennifer Lawrence's body, but fortunately they made a suspenseful spy thriller instead.
My bad for not having mentioned it while we were watching. Thanks for the great work there!
Higgins has suggested "The Pink Panther"- the original, with David Niven and Peter Sellers.
The Day of the Jackal would be a good call from my point of view as I have a copy of it on DVD and haven't seen it for many years.
Apologies, haven‘t seen this topic ☹️
The Pink Panther is a good idea. Now we've watched two war movies, perhaps it's time for a comedy?
I think a Pink Panther watchalong would be great! One of my favourites 👍️
Are pornographic movies allowed?
@Barbel - we've got to give the Mods something to do these days...
I think the Panther is emerging as the front runner. Higgins, Golrush007, Number24, and me all in favour, plus Napoleon if Peter Sellers takes his clothes off.
I'm also in for Pink Panther (dates permitting).
Has anyone else seen 'Anna' ?
If Caractacus hadn't just watched North By Northwest I'd suggest that.
don't worry about me, Chief. Its unlikely I'll be watchalonging anyway, the timing usually doesnt work out for me.
But having the movie so fresh in mind I should be interested in what yall have to say about it.
The Wild Geese and Our Man Flint, I would make arrangements to watchalong with these 🙂
Call me iffy on THE PINK PANTHER. Those never did much for me apart from the one where Herbert Lom is actually trying to kill Clouseau.
That's ....Strikes Again, one of the silliest and most ridiculous in the series. Love it to bits, one of my favourites. 😁
PS But it's also "A Shot In The Dark", come to think of it.
PPS And same thing for "Return Of..."
Need more info, Gymkata!
But the Original PP is imo more classy and better balanced.
And it plays in Cortina which makes it a winner in my books
I'm talking about the one where Lom is in the castle and has the disintegration laser. Last time I went through all of the movies (which was years and years ago), that was the only one that really made me laugh hard and consistently for the entire runtime.
100% with you. The original would be the best choice for us.
Yup, "Strikes Again" it is.
I always crack down laughing when Sellers falls into the pool by watching the lady in the bikini
Catherine Schell couldn't keep a straight face in that scene, and pretty much every scene she shares with Sellers.
In the "Last Film Seen" thread a bunch of us have expressed support for "The Magnificent Seven", so I'm bringing that up here.
Count me in 100% with extreme enthusiasm for THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.
I’m in too. Anytime, any place, anywhere, as the old Martini ad went!
Just on the basis of Robert 'Napoleon Solo' Vaughn alone, I'm in for the Magnificent Seven. 🍸
