This is a place where we can discuss particular classic films in depth, from the Golden Age of Hollywood (1930's - 1970's, more or less). Here we can indulge in talking about a certain film at length, with no concerns about rambling on too much.

Conversation can be more "meaty" and involved at the Roundtable. We can talk about any film in depth here should the mood strike; this is the arena for getting more involved in discussing a movie. We can explore, critique, evaluate, rhapsodize, skewer, examine, etc.

PS: Thanks to Ronzo, Grant, and the rest of the Roundtable gang who made the first Roundtable thread a great experience from March 2009 to April 2010. Fruit cup with extra cherries for you all. ;-)

Ronzo,
I felt at the end of "The Chase" things would be different for them for the fact that they did kiss right away. I was glad he woke up ala' Pam Ewing :)

I'm sorry Baron,
I just started typing away :) Good to be here and I Love your posts. I hope I can learn to be a little more forthwith, but I doubt it. I'm pretty much a like/dont like kinda person, sorry, it can be boring, but I never have been a writer. I love movies though and I hope that will be good enough :)

I like all those films you mentioned with the exception of Robin Hood (which I have not seen so I cannot say one way or another).

Here we go again!

By the way, thanks for putting the "1970's more or less" cap. I think that's a good idea. While there will be those "acceptions" obviously, I definately think there should be at least some ambiguous "borders", lol. The "Saturday Poll", the "Suggestions" thread and the "Chatline" are better suited to discuss more "contemporary" films and for more free form chit chat, IMO.
And congrats to you as well for contributing heavily to those 1000 posts! Looking forward to a 1000 more posts of entertaining film discussion.

Now where was I....oh yeah...HIDDEN FORTRESS and KAGEMUSHA, lol. By the time ronzo's done with me, Japanese will be a second language, lol.

Just got done watching "Atragon".
Great film!
Loved watching it when I was a kid.
Used to go to the theatre and watch these type films every Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
You know what it cost?
Two(2) cans of vegetables or fruit! How about that!
Man we had fun in those days! Great scary movies and popcorn and soda! Birch beer and cream soda!
Wow! Give me a time-machine and let me go back!

Baron and all

I am glad to have found the way to this new address. I'm starting to settle back in and hope to enjoy some more fascinating discussions with my movie-and-miscellany smart friends.

Nancy,

re: "I love movies though and I hope that will be good enough"

Of course. I think love of classic movies is the magnet that brings us together here.

N,

Oh, you haven't seen "Robin Hood" with Errol and Olivia? If you can get a hold of it you might just love this swashbuckling Technicolor film.

Grant,

You're right. Casual banter is fine now and then (we all go off topic once in a while), but when it takes over on a thread that's got a unique purpose, I tend to become disinterested. But I won't be wagging my finger at anyone; I ain't the Grand Poobah, lol. This thread has no boss or leader. It belongs to the group.

I think this second thread will thrive just like the first version; 10,000 posts is feasible, if not a given.

Kimbers,

Welcome back, hope all is "guud" with you. Your recent absence on the forum made it feel like something was missing. Glad to see you.

Dustman,

I think it's mutual-- we're also looking forward to hearing YOUR thoughts. I enjoyed your posts immensely on the previous Roundtable as well as the classic horror thread. You're passionate about classic film, and it shows.

I don't know if I'd refer to it as "blessed".
Interesting maybe but not blessed.

bitter!
Only those who can trace their heritage back to the Mayflower may post here!
Does that make us "high-falutin'?
The score is 59 - 57 with ten seconds left and I've got the ball!
"Robin Hood" has been done to death!
I prefer "Men In Tights"! Funny!
Ha Ha Ha!

Baron:
Is passion about classic film a prerequisite for inclusion on this forum?
Or do you all believe in free speech?

Hello y'all! :)

Baron,

Great way to end that thread; with a list of suggestions for this one.

The Thin Man (would be my first time viewing it)
A Place in the Sun
Sullivan's Travels
A Streetcar Named Desire
The Great Dictator
The Adventures of Robin Hood
Suspicion

I think we should do them ALL. Shall we start with THE THIN MAN (1932?)? I won't spoil it, but be mindful of who the film is named after. ;)
(It is a fun trivia bit.)
I think you'll like this film, as it has a lot of witty banter between the leads; one could easily make the argument that the "plot" takes a backseat to it. lol.
Name your date ... the following week's slate is currently clean.

Ronzo,

It's funny, I honestly didn't know I was posting the final post-- I thought it was like 9997 or something. Then a message pops up about the discussion being finished!

Okay, "The Thin Man" is a good one, from what I hear. I had recorded it off TCM in 2009. As for the date, how about mid-week (around the 14th)? I'll be getting my work schedule tonight so I can't be specific. Wish I had a set schedule, lol.

Whats up with that Bitter?!
