The Two Jakes
I love Chinatown but never got round to watching the sequel for some reason.

The Thomas Crown Affair
Saw the Brosnan version, but as yet I've not seen the Steve McQueen version.

Futureworld
I wasn't even aware there was a sequel to Westworld until fairly recently.

Bian Feng Mie Zhu
Supposedly the first movie about real life Chinese hero Wong Fei Hung. I'm sure it's awful but I'm curious.

Stagecoach
Supposedly one of the best westerns ever made. Never seen it though. John Wayne isn't my kind of cowboy to be honest but I've heard this is good so I'd like to check it out eventually.

There's actually two versions of Stagecoach, the original one by John Ford and a remake starring Bing Crosby from, I think, around 1970. I saw the latter one first and the first one later. According to the critics, the original is the best, but I enjoyed both. The idea is good: we have a couple of very different people inside a coach surrounded by enemies.
Another movie classic based on the same idea is North West Frontier with Lauren Bacall, this time in a train in India. It's from 1949, but it's still very exciting.

I love Lauren Bacall. Never seen North West Frontier though, I don't think. If I have, I've forgotten it at least.

For me, so many folks had said that I HAVE to see this movie, and it was like stepping into a time machine, seeing all the 80's stuff and hearing the old refrences in the movie.

From what I remember, there wasn't much of a soundtrack to the movie, so there were quiet parts, it was so wild to see the actors at such a young age. Hard to believe I never sat down to watch it until last month.

Sometimes, there's a classic on Netflix, and I try to take some time to see a critically acclaimed flick, because usually there's a buncha crap on that platform.

Is there a movie like that for you? A classic movie that for some weird reason you never got to see it? That you saw recently?

Watch Beyond Westworld: The Complete Series | Prime Video

There was also a 1980 TV series. There were only 5 episodes. It was alright, had promise.

Stagecoach is GREAT. Another amazing film from Hollywood's best year - 1939. I mean … that cast. And shot in Monument Valley. Spectacular.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Dog Day Afternoon. Belgian tv is showing classic movies this summer, so I might catch up with some more movies that I never got around to see.

I don't know if I'd go as far as to say I'm a fan, he's ok I suppose. He's my favourite Bond but outside of that I've only seen a handful of his movies. I seen bits of Remington Steele when they used to show repeats on TV but I've never sat down to properly watch it.
