Okay, let's do this.. Movies. We have discussed relationships. Dating advice. Mammaries. OSU 'suckage' according to some SEC homers. Note: That is NOT THE Ohio State University, but Oregon.

Let's talk about what summer movie has been the best so far, or will be the best. And I'll throw in HP as well since he comes out in the fall, but should have came in the summer.

I am throwing my weight behind Inception... what do you gents/ladies think?

Lame. I fail at both threads, though this one busted 5 replies. 40% were banned.

July 16, 2010  01:29 PM ET

Now only 29% were banned

No wait, I mean 25%

"Lawrence of Arabia" - Great cast, incredible cinematography, tremendous editing, and one really good looking classic motorcycle.

There's a Lawrence of Arabia movie coming out this year? I forgot about Grown-Ups.. definitely the best movie I have seen this year. Blows out the vampire movie by a nuke.

"The Blue Max" - Awesome aerial footage (Given: The aircraft used were replicas or basely disguised Tiger Moths and Gypsy Moths, but the flying and camera work were tremendous); they don't make 'em like this anymore, and, as good as CGI is these days, it still falls short. No one can afford to make movies like this anymore...

George Peppard is perfectly cast as the guy who dies in the end. He's good at creepy (See Patricia Neal's kept boy in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's').

James Mason gives another scarily believable performance as denizen of the dark side of the human condition.

Ursula Andress has a difficult time keeping the towels in just the right places, and, at the time this was shot, you KNOW that no babe had ever suckled those breasts.

Jeremy Kemp's performance is servicable. The best of the film is that of Karl Michael Vogler. He's consistently good, film after film. He shines in this one.

Nah... I'm just trippin' on past favorites. Examples of films that couldn't be made in these times. You just can't afford to shoot it the way they did. Cost prohibative. They'd use CGI, and the remake would fall short.

See "Grand Prix." Read about how that was filmed... friggin' awesome!

July 16, 2010  01:53 PM ET

Sorry, Trizz.

If we are going old car movies, I am going to have to throw out "Chitty Chitty Bang-Bang" :P That is my favorite old time car movie. I wasn't a big Herbie fan, even with Lindsay Lohan. But Chitty Chitty is an awesome movie and I still have it stuck in my head.

I looked up Grand Prix, and it looks good to see. I'll have to find it somewhere, somehow. Netflix maybe?

i don't go to the movies

Saw this one many, many years ago, and frankly had forgotten it. I'm a George Peppard fan, and he does a fine job in this one. Anybody into aerial combat has to like this one.

George Peppard, Ursula Andress, Jeremy Kemp and Karl Michael Vogler all in one movie? Is that good? I am showing my age here, but I am learning a lot about ancient classics. Any idea where I can find these in a format viewable today?

ROFL! I love those old Honeymooners. They define "classic" in my mind - and you can throw Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett's shows in there too, but not quite at the level of the Honeymooners.

They are timeless....saw one of Carol Burnetts shows the other day...with Tim Conway as the dentist who stabbed himself with the Novacaine....Harvey Korman was laughing as much as anyone else and I still laughed till I cried....good stuff

One of my favourite TV shows was Frazier where Nils was ironing his pants, gets a paper cut, faints from the sight of blood, wakes up to find a small bit of blood on the couch, gets the cleaner, sets it too close to the flame, moves it, sees the blood again and faints, again tries to clean the blood up and sets the couch on fire, puts out the fire with spaghetti......and not a word is being spoken. First time I saw that I was on a trip and had to call my wife to tell her.....
