    NOTE to NON-MEMBERS: Interested in joining the SHERDOG MOVIE CLUB? Shoot me a PM for more info!

    Here's a quick list of all movies watched by the SMC. Or if you prefer, here's a more detailed examination.

    Hmm... after 236 it feels like we've Nominated every genre in existence...

    There has to be something we've missed...

    Wait a minute!!!

    (Mandatory Viewing)

    Yes! I'm making a "French Movies" theme. I went with highly regarded flicks from their cinematic history (as always) As these Nominations are a bit old, I'm including a link to where you guys can watch them all online!;)
    Candidates:

    That Man from Rio (1964)

    [​IMG]


    Director: Philippe de Broca

    Stars: Jean-Paul Belmondo, Françoise Dorléac, Jean Servais

    Premise:
    A young man comes to the rescue of his girlfriend abducted by thieves and brought to Rio. An extravagant adventure ensues.

    Reason for Nominating:
    Stars Jean-Paul Belmondo who is a powerhouse of charisma in what looks like a fun adventure movie.

    The Silence of the Sea (1949)

    [​IMG]

    Director:
    Jean-Pierre Melville

    Stars: Howard Vernon, Nicole Stéphane, Jean-Marie Robain

    Premise: Under Nazi occupation, an elderly Frenchman and his niece must board a German officer. As a form of resistance, they enter pact of silence when the officer is present. But as time passes, they realize he far differs from their expectations.

    Reason for Nominating:
    Debut movie of one of the all-time great directors and often regarded as one of the best first films of all time.

    Link: https://ok.ru/video/1014710078132

    (No english trailer for this flick seems to exist)



    Les Diaboliques (1955)

    [​IMG]

    Director: Henri-Georges Clouzot


    Stars: Simone Signoret, Véra Clouzot, Paul Meurisse

    Premise: The wife and mistress of a loathed school principal plan to murder him with what they believe is the perfect alibi.

    Reason for Nominating:
    If a film is widely proclaimed as being equal to Hitchcock... then I'm interested.

    Link: On Youtube. See next post.




    Wages of Fear (1953)

    [​IMG]

    Director:
    Henri-Georges Clouzot


    Stars: Yves Montand, Charles Vanel, Peter van Eyck


    Premise:

    Reason for Nominating:
    Some people claim that this movie is even better then William Friedkin's remake Sorcerer and I was like; "Nah, that can't be true."... but what if it actually is?:eek:

    I really liked The Lighthouse, Ex Machina and Rocco and His Bros. Tremors and The Long Good Friday were two films I'd already seen and loved. Support Your Local Gunfighter was a good time too

    Death Warrant was a surprising dud for me because I liked that movie as a kid

    Looking forward to French week. One of the GOAT countries for cinema

    The Lighthouse was epic.

    The Invisible was shambolic.

    I... don't think we ever reached a official decision on that.

    Is this something people are up for?

    For sure. They really get ignored in favor of Japan, Italy, Hong Kong, pretty much everyone. The attention France gets doesn't match its quality.

    Tried to get Pepe Le Moko in there but this is the list I went with.

    I'm thinking about watching the lighthouse and rocco this weekend possibly. not sure becuase the dog gave me an awesome leg sweep at the top of the stairs, chasing the cat, and thus throwing me skyward backwards falling to the tile cellar floor... hyper extending and then dislocating my elbow. Mauricio Rua vs. Marki Kohlmen style. I put it back in place almost immediately but still hurts a tad hahaha.

    What in the fuck is @europe1 's fascination with making us watch a film from 1940's, 50's, or 60's every cycle.

    This is Europe trying to get to the Cineplex when they run old as fuck films marathon.
