Weekend Movie: Frankenstein (1910)

23 Sep

This is the classic black and white silent movie, “Frankenstein.”  It is short and I will do my best to supplement it with a second weekend movie later.

Weekend Movie: Bruce Lee in The Chinese Connection

31 Aug

Though Lee gained most of his repute through the movie, Enter The Dragon; The Chinese Connection is, at least in watchability, its equal.  A gripping, action packed, tale of courage, honour and Martial Arts; this movie delivers with the power of a roundhouse kick.  The movie also introduces a political back-story unfamiliar to much of the Western world, without pointing fingers or getting over-involved in the political element.

Bruce Lee was not only a charismatic teacher, actor and the first to bring kung fu to worldwide fame and repute.  Lee was a model of fitness and discipline, maintaining coordination, strength and self-discipline to the extent of keeping at a constant 2% bodyfat and the ability to do fifty one-armed pull-ups.

Rather than list his hundreds of virtues and feats of strength, readers are encouraged to read about Lee on their own if they care to do so.  In any case, without further adieu, Bruce Lee in The Chinese Connection.

Weekend Movie: Robin Hood: The Christmas Goose

13 Jul

This version of Robin Hood features English actor Richard Greene in a 1950s television series. He is a bit less jaunty than the usual depiction, but he definitely plays it off well, with his own distinctive rather influence-free style.

Weekend Movie: “Suddenly” starring Frank Sinatra

15 Jun

Frank Sinatra is well known for his charm, his masculine yet sensitive persona and of course his voice.

Many people, however, do not realise that Sinatra was also a terrific actor and starred in such hit films as, “The Manchurian Candidate,” and “Guys and Dolls.”

Part of Sinatra’s creative capacity, according to him, came from the fact that he was manic depressive.  He once said of his sensitivity and emotional creativity, “Being an 18-karat manic depressive, and having lived a life of violent emotional contradictions, I have an over-acute capacity for sadness as well as elation.”
