A very late but very happy 25th anniversary to Rudy, the beloved sports drama that celebrated it's milestone this past Saturday. As we all know, this is the story is the account of Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger (Sean Astin), a young man who harbored dreams of playing football but lacked the grades or money to attend Notre Dame and is constantly told that he doesn't have a chance making it. But when his best friend dies at the steel mill he a d his father works at, he strive to get out of there and make his dreams come through despite academic and financial roadblocks. This movie is a sports classic for every reason; it embraces the love for the sports, boast a good message and packs solid performances from Astin, Ned Beatty and the always terrific Charles S Dutton as stadium groundskeeper and the main character's mentor Fortune. This movie is still rousing, inspirational and highly entertaining to this day. #rudymovie #davidanspaugh #dyronrises #sportsdrama #dramafilms #basedonatruestory #inthislifetimeyousonthavetoprovenithingtonobodyexceptyoursef #havingdreamsiswhatmakeslifetolerable #seanastin #nedbeatty #charlessdutton #lilitaylor #robertprosky #jonfavreau #1993movies #90smovies #tristarpictures
Unlike many other disturbing films that try to shock the viewer with over the top gore and unrealistic scenarios, Deliverance has the ability to terrify you with its plausibility. If you ask most people what they thought of the movie, 90% will always talk about the “squeal like a pig” scene, I’m not disagreeing, it is a disturbing and frightening moment in cinema history. But if you give it a second or third viewing so you are mentally prepared for that particular scene you start to see how the remainder of the movie is just as shocking as that. The character development gets you invested in each of the men, the isolation of the river leaves you feeling alone and unsure and the hillbillies are the finishing touch to set up real fear. The power of plausibility in horror, for me will always be much more powerful than the amount of blood put on screen. Deliverance is a movie that every generation will see and by the end will always say one thing, what would you do if it was you and your friends?

Rudy (1993) Director: David Anspaugh Main Cast: Sean Astin, Jon Favreau, Ned Beatty Distributor: Columbia Pictures Rating: PG Genre: Drama Rudy is the greatest college football movie ever made. It's a fantastic film about a guy named Rudy who is a huge fan of Notre Dame football. He dreams of playing on the team but is told that he is too small and should just forget about it. The movie shows an important message of not giving up on your dreams. Sean Astin is great as the titular character. The audience roots for Rudy to get on the team. We see him struggle but also succeed. It's well made and has a powerful story. It is inspirational. Rudy sets a standard of football movies. Adults and older children will enjoy it. It has always been on top ten lists. Rudy is a 90s classic and definitely recommended.

A pint-sized Midwesterner has one simple—but nearly impossible—dream: to play football at the University of Notre Dame. This week, we get confused by Rudy’s real name, we see the death of his best friend coming from a mile away, and we ponder the awkwardness of a woman dating two brothers. We also discuss the latest trouble in the DC Extended Universe before finding out if 1993’s Rudy stands the Test of Time. #PodernFamily #MoviePodSquad #Rudy #SeanAstin #JonFavreau #NedBeatty #GretaLind #CharlesSDutton #ChristopherReed #NotreDame #UniversityOfNotreDame #FightingIrish #WinOneForTheGipper #football #collegefootball #underdog #truestory #DC #DCEU #HenryCavill #BenAffleck #🏈

#105 Network (1976). Few days off this week, which is why I'm on a film binge. Finally got round to watching this classic.

I watched quite a few classic Burt Reynolds movies after his passing. ‘White Lightning’ and ‘Gator’ were two I wanted to see for years but never got around to. Burt stars as the moonshiner ex-con Gator McKlusky in both movies and also directed ‘Gator’. ‘White Lightning’ is a great, gritty 70s action thriller. It has a nasty Ned Beatty as the villain and one of the greatest stunts Burt ever did, when you see the car actually flying over his head. The soundtrack by Charles Bernstein is awesome, too (Tarantino re-used it, which is always a good sign). ‘Gator’ unfortunately doesn’t live up to the first part. Burt’s directorial debut has some serious mood swings and the tone is all over the place. It has good moments but then there are pointless scenes that go on too long and silly comedy mixed with dark moments. It goes as far as having two comic relief characters that could almost come from a family movie and then brutally killing them. Jerry Reed is the villain this time and he is pretty good as a sleazy, racist politician. The Gator character also doesn’t really feel like the same person from the first movie (and I don’t just mean the mustache). #WhiteLightning #Gator #BurtReynolds #JosephSargent #NedBeatty #BoHopkins #JerryReid #DianeLadd #MattClark #JackWeston #LaurenHutton #RGArmstrong #70scinema #70saction #HalNeedham #moonshine #hicksploitation #carsploitation #stunts #actionfilm #gritty #exploitation #grindhouse #cultmovie #cinephile #filmbuff #toughguy #southerngothic

He estado viendo #superman y me sigue pareciendo una obra de arte Después del fiasco de Los Vengadores necesitaba reconciliarme con los superhéroes y que mejor manera que de la mano del maestro #richarddonner y la película que lo originó todo...con un guionista de la talla de #mariopuzo (#elpadrino ), unos efectos especiales que se llevaron el Oscar y con una banda sonora que pone los pelos de punta del genio #johnwilliams en 1978 apareció esta maravilla que a un niño como yo le pareció pura magia desde...ese comienzo en Kripton y el juicio con su condena; Jor-El y el consejo; la despedida de Jor-El a Kal-El; la destrucción de #kripton ; el viaje y el encuentro con los Kent(la furgoneta..pedazo plano); el joven Clark y sus poderes ocultos; el ataque"tanto que puedo hacer, con todos mis poderes y no he sido capaz de salvarle"; la Fortaleza de la Soledad; el Daily Planet; el callejón y el disparo; Otis y la policia con la primera aparición de Luthor; la primera acción de Superman con Lois en el helicóptero "Tranquila yo la sujeto - Tranquila..Y quien te sujeta a ti?"; Superman y sus logros; Lex y su guarida; la entrevista "Que tamaño tiene de...?"; el vuelo de Lois y Superman con pedazo tema Williams (lagrimones como puños); Clark quitándose las gafas(momentazo); el sabotaje a los misiles (Otis y los numeros); Superman en la guarida y la explicación del plan; la trampa del arcon y la kriptonita; una ayuda y un beso; persiguiendo el misil; el impacto del segundo y sus acciones: el tren, el autobús, la presa; Lois y la brecha (agobiante!!!); el grito de Superman y su épica solución; el momento en que Lois casi descubre la verdad; Luthor detenido y ese final con la tierra y John Williams a tope... El reparto está perfecto desde #christopherreeve como el tímido Clark y el duro superhéroe; esa #margotkidder como Lois (mi amor de la infancia); #genehackman genial como siempre como Luthor; todos los secundarios como los clásicos #marlonbrando y #glennford pero en mi ignorancia yo me quedo con el breve pero intenso #terencestamp como Zod y el divertidísimo #nedbeatty como Otis " Prohibido inmiscuirte en la historia de los hombres Mi valoración personal: 9.75/10

Beautiful Boats of #LakeMartinAlabama . By the way this is where #Deliverance was filmed, the "Squeal Like A Pig" scene. I worked with #NedBeatty in #Rango what's a day on the water without a rainbow...@georgehardyofficial
From my Toits flea market haul: "Deliverance". Year: 1972. Directed by John Boorman. Starring: Burt Reynolds, Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox. In honor of Burt (may he rest), bought this snap case for a dollar. Also, not ashame to admit that i've never seen it even though I feel like I have. The granddaddy of all those Backwoods terror / Rural Survival / Hillbilly Horror / Redneck Nightmares films. It has the distinction of being in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." #burtreynolds #jonvoight #nedbeatty #ronnycox #johnboorman #backwoodsterror #ruralsurvival #hillbillyhorror #rednecknightmares #70scinema #moviecollection #dvdcollection #filmcollection #cinephile #moviecollection #filmcollector #filmcollection #filmcollector #moviejunkie #moviebuff #film #films #dvd #dvds
Deliverance has to be one of the only Hicksploitation films ever nominated for Academy Awards and Golden Globes. I might be wrong on this but I can’t recall any. It’s definitely one of the best, if not the best, of the strange subgenre of Hicksploitation. A genre usually categorized as involving backwoods southerners giving outsiders a hard time. This film definitely benefits from a strong cast, specifically Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight. Reynolds perfectly plays the adventuresome jock played against the more family man type of Voight. A lot of the stunts were performed by the leads themselves. This creates a gritty realism within the rapids scenes and during a great cliff climbing sequence. Boorman does an excellent job adapting James Dickey’s novel which results in a film that pits man versus nature, man versus man and then back again. . . . .

Burt Reynolds marathon comes to and end for now with not only one of my favorite Reynolds films, this is on my all time fav list (not towards the top of the list but it’s on there) Switching channels is a remake of the Cary Grant film “His girl Friday” I don’t think audiences gave the film a chance when it came out and it only recently made it to dvd , I think the movie is hysterical, well written and the fast paced comedy that I love. #moviejunkie #filmcollection #cinephile #films #filmcollector #dvd #bluray #bluraycollection #bluraycollector #movies #dvdcollector #dvdcollection #moviecollection #moviecollector #filmbuff #rip #burtreynolds #switchingchannels #kathleenturner #christopherreeves #nedbeatty

Most people hate Exorcist II: the Heretic automatically, mostly because they treat the first one as something holy. I think the sequel is a lot of crazy fun. It’s a wild ride and that makes it worth watching. Plus it have one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen. #fredswatching #exorcistiitheheretic #lindablair #richardburton #theexorcist #maxvonsydow #johnboorman #jamesearljones #pazuzu #louisefletcher #exorcist2 #reganmacneil #nedbeatty #kittywinn #exorcist
We lost one of the world's last movie stars last week and it's pretty damn sad. But since we all know the great Burt Reynolds classics, I wanted to watch one that I haven't seen before. 'Physical Evidence' directed by Michael Crichton is not one of Burt Reynold's most important or talked about films but it's a solid little thriller with a decent cast. It's a nice depature from Burt's usual tough guy roles that he is a bit more of a victim here - an ex-cop who is framed for murder and has to clear his name with the help of his lawyer, played by Theresa Russell. Burt is once again reunited with Ned Beatty. This is not a masterpiece but it is an entertaining little murder mystery with a great leading man. #PhysicalEvidence #MichaelCrichton #BurtReynolds #TheresaRussel #NedBeatty #TedMcGinley #KayLenz #80scinema #80saction #attorney #lawyer #thriller #neonoir #copmovie #80s #toughguy #moviesstar #ripburtreynolds #filmoir #actionstar #bmovie #murdermystery #80sthriller #cultmovie #cinephile #filmbuff #murdertrial #bluray
White Lightning (1973): White Lightning is a bit slow in parts, but still kick ass and remains a fun time capsule into the 1970s. #burtreynolds stars as ‘Gator’ McKlusky, a con turned undercover federal agent, as he attempts to disrupt corruption in a small Arkansas town and get revenge for his brother’s murder (the two are, obviously, connected). Reynolds is still his wide-grinning self here, but the story is a bit darker and more violent than other films from this era. I enjoy the contrast between the Bandit-style car chases and the grounded corruption-tinged narrative. It’s always blatantly obvious when director #josephsargent hands over the reins to #halneedham but it also allows the movie to work well in both arenas. Reynolds is supported well by solid turns from #nedbeatty #bohopkins #rgarmstrong and #mattclark who are all fun here. Beatty, as our villain, could have used a bit more menace as he seems more like an angry bigot than an evil monster. #jenniferbillingsley is pretty annoying in her love interest role. It’s the one-note kind of nonsense that plagues action cinema—a genre that, unfortunately, seemingly cares not for female involvement. There is some interesting backstory to her character, but the filmmakers never flesh it out to any degree. They are more concerned with macho posturing and staging the umpteenth car chase to care—which is a bummer. There is also a homophobic line thrown in as a joke that just feels meanspirited now. All of that is just afterthought nitpicking, however, as White Lightning is a movie about stunts and sticking it to the man—something the film has in spades. Needham’s car chases are, of course, spectacular and there are several fight sequences to get the blood pumping. It’s all antiquated feeling in 2018, but that’s the point. They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. The counter-cultural stuff is strong here too with lots of talk of hippies and how they are destroying the country. Gator straddles the line between bigot and revolutionary. He has revenge in his eyes but, when he cracks that smile, we know he’s a hero for all of us. #movie_mattinee @oscarwatchpod @samenightmovie

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT for those who listened to the latest episode. WE WERE going to be doing Les Diaboliques and Snowtown next week. Then Burt Reynolds passed away. So we are honouring him with three picks. They are Deliverance, Hooper, and Striptease. We are just an insignificant podcast in this world. Burt was a huge icon, which is all too easy to forget nowadays. . . . . #podcast #podcaster #cinemaroom #bluray #movies #moviecollection #burtreynolds #deliverance #hooper #striptease #nedbeatty #jonvoight #janmichaelvincent #demimoore #riptothebandit
