I can't wait for Tron, sadly watching the first just doesn't seem to have the same affect that it did all those years ago...

I know exactly what you mean.. I recently found a copy of the He-Man movie with Dolph Lundregen and Courtney Cox in it and boy oh boy.. what a huge disappointment that was... But i am looking forward to the new Tron though!

An oldie but a goodie! Along with 74 other silent films first believed lost, John Ford's acclaimed classic "Upstream" is currently being restored and it's second premier should take place some time in September! I am a silent film nut and am hopeful that a full list of these films will be released soon. Though many are badly deteriorated, the film conservation society will do their best to restore these movies for our viewing pleasure. :D
These movies have not been seen since the 1920's. Thank you New Zealand for making this possible!

Ah, there's nothing like sitting down to read a good movie.
Here's a couple favourites to spark your imagination.

restored Metropolis trailer

from Broken Blossoms, Lillian Gish was such a tremendous actor

They are showing Metropolis restored and with 25 more minutes of found footage at the Tampa Theatre on August 29!!! That's only about a 2 and a half hour drive north for me, so I'm doing a little day trip for a 3pm sunday matinee! Gotta get my ticket ahead of time though, as I'm sure they will sell out. And I forgot to mention, it will have live accompaniment on their restored Wurlitzer organ. That beautiful old instrument rises out of the stage. So fun!!! I wish you and Mel could join me and Captain Nemo, Aaron!
If you are at all curious you can look up the Tampa Theatre, it is a beautiful old restored movie house. They are showing other great classics this summer too, like Casablanca, It Came From Outer Space in 3-D, etc. :D

Wish you did too. I'll be sure to take my camera to this show. There are bound to be lots of interesting things and people to photograph.

Well, I can't find the piece on youtube to show you all here, but it's official. Dark Shadows is being made as a film by Tim Burton and they start filming this spring. 8)
Maybe we'll see it's release by next holiday season? Hopefully.

Oh yes, btw. Did I mention that Johnny Depp will be playing Barnabas Collins?

Well, is has become quite a good character actor. I do wonder though if he can full it off in serious mode, or if it will be more of a dark humor film. Guess we'll know more soon, last I heard they start filming in April.
Wonder who will play me? :lol:
