A very old movie ' Lawrence of Arabia' for the first time and I like it. There was an Indian actor named I S Johar, I didn't knew that he was in the movie, he was a very famous comedian in Hindi movies.

Glenn and I have been "going back" with our movie viewing. A few weeks ago we began watching, in order, all of the James Bond movies.

Whoa, what fun! It's amazing seeing how silly the "modern" technology of those times in the movies seemed so fabulous. Now, with today's technologies, the gizmos and gadgets James used are so, almost, hokey.

Still, we've been having a ball watching...Bond, James Bond!!!!

Tonight was You Only Live Twice and we had a great time booing the villain and cheering the hero!!!!

Sounds like you have some exciting evenings planned. I would love to watch the old movies from the 40's. I love B&W movies. I have to get some finances straightened out, and then I am going back to Netflix. the first time I joined the cost was $14 a month. Now it is down to $8.

Katie, I would love to do that with all the Bond movies!

We are playing catch-up on movies that have been out for awhile but we haven't seen them. Last week we had War Horse (loved it though some scenes I couldn't watch), one with Jackie Chan and Jet Li which name I can't remember but it was good as any of those martial arts movies are, and My Week with Marilyn which we both totally loved. The acting, story and directing were all great.

We are waiting for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian which should arrive Friday. I told you we are a bit behind

Watched the first Sherlock Holmes movie the other day. I was looking forward to it's being great. It was OK.

The Forbidden Kingdom (2008) - IMDb

I loved this one, but I like fantasy martial arts!

Was it the one with Basil Rathbone? I love the bad acting in those movies.

Thanks, your Ogreness and yes, I like them too. I also have a soft spot for Jackie Chan (but don't tell DH - he has enough trouble competing with Neil Diamond )

I think it was probably the first of two with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law...am I right Andy? I liked the first, haven't seen the second.
