Re: Wentworth is back :-)

@schnapps

 

Good catch (and good suggestion).

 

You know, right now I listening to some cool tunes so I need one more thing to top it off, a beer.

Guys

 

I thought I'd give Casey of little taste of the films "The Warriors" and "Assault on Precinct 13" and maybe she'll get a flavour of why these films were (and still are) so good.

Enjoy

PS. I particularly love John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13's theme music.

Hi Schnapps

 

Since were the only ones that remember some of the older films I thought I'd throw this one in, just to find out if you've ever seen it?

Another great by John Carpenter.

Hi UK Bob,

 

Yeah i have seen this great movie together with the not so good sequel Escape from LA.

 

Kurt Russell and John Carpenter worked together on a few movies back in the day.

 

My two favourites from John Carpenter were "Big Trouble in Little China and the "The Thing". 

 

Also quite enjoyed "They Live" with Roddy Piper the Wrestler.

 

My top favourite flims apart from the Star Wars franchise (in no particular order) are Jaws, Alien, Aliens, Terminator 1 & 2 and Predator Smiley Happy

Hi Schnapps

 

You know, the top John Carpenter films for me are as follows:

 

1) The Thing, brilliant horror film and brilliantly acted.

 

2) Assault on Precinct 13, Jon's first major feature filled with stylised, John Wayne type  action. 

 

3) Escape from New York with Kurt Russell and Lee Van Cleef, another western-type film.

 

4) They Live, for me had an unsatisfactory ending (as far as I can remember) but I still enjoyed it.

 

As for your other films, I really enjoyed those as well.

 

A small(ish) film with a naff title but surprisingly good, directed by Jon Favreau, is Cowboys and Aliens, something to watch if you've got nothing else scheduled.

 

                                    Cowboys & Aliens (2011).jpg

 

 

As long as you don't expect too much it's worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.

Hi UK Bob,

 

Thanks for the suggestion about Cowboys & Aliens (already watched it on bluray with my Love Film Rental Discs Subscription).

 

Ever since watching Tron Legacy, i have a man crush on Olivia Wiide (watching Vinyl on Sky Atlantic was especially a treat for me with Olivia showing all her naughty bits (unless they used a body double) Smiley Very Happy

Re: Wentworth is back :-)

Afraid to say that whilst I mentioned Assault on Precinct 13 I've never actually seen it. However I am a big fan of John Carpenter horror, having produced two of the most iconic horrors ever, Halloween (easily one of my top 5 favourite horrors) and The Thing.

 

And speaking of Carpenter's great music, I love the superb Halloween theme, as heard in the opening credits to the film,M guaranteed to get my heart pumping

and probably one of the best examples of his incidental music adding significantly to the building sense of fear and dread in a horror film, the famous 'walk home from school' steadicam sequence

Mind you, can't deny things went downhill from there. Remember Vampires and Village of the Damned anyone?

Re: Wentworth is back :-)

@ukbobboy I forgot Carpenter directed Escape from New York, but I quite enjoyed that. Wasn't Donald Pleasance in that as well? (Halloween connection). The US president maybe? Bit vague it's that long since I watched.

 

Surprised by Cowboys and Aliens, wouldn't have thought that would be a recommendation of yours, just shows personal taste is a funny thing!
