Zelda scared the **** out of me in the original


It will be interesting to compare R -rated horror 30 years apart.
Pet Semetary sold 15 million tickets in full run in 1989
US sold 15 million tickets in two weeks in 2019
Its sold 36.5 million tickets in full run in 2017

Where are you watching it. Deadpool 2
lists the director as 'One of those guys
that killed John Wick's dog.' Funny..
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Avengers: Endgame

In some ways my eyes canít believe what they just witnessed.

I watched the "classic" Midnight Cowboy last night

Really a plotless movie in my eyes - more like "a week in the life of a bumpkin that goes to NYC"

I also did not really like the movie
I do like that one scene "I'm walking here. I'm walking here"
A real life cab drove into the movie scene and Al Pacino stayed in character.

I agree, I never understood what was supposed to be good about this movie unless you really believe a hick could be as dumb as Voight's character Joe Buck. Some memorable scenes, true.

I get a kick out of the scene where Joe Buck goes to an apartment thinking someone will pay him to be gigolo , and it turns out to be some nut who tries to save sinners with a glowing Jesus ...

The story may not work, but the clip you posted screams talent from the actors, directors, cinenematography. If you consider how much work went into all the shots and editing. OTOH, you still don't necessarily enjoy a film for that reason. I really don't enjoy Citizen Kane all that much, for instance.
Nobody learned anything from the global financial crisis.
