Great Movies We Forgot About

It's nice to catch an old flick from your childhood, teenage, or young adult years--one of those movies you really liked that might be cheesy today. I caught this 70's gem the other night.

Rolling Thunder with William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones

Thats funny you mention this particular flick. Always enjoyed Tommy Lee Jones, so I started digging around in his filmography a year or two back and found this one.

Really enjoyed it! Especially the ending.

Joe Vs The Volcano - cheesy but always enjoyable

Apocalypse Now Redux - the difference in the story with the extra scenes is interesting

Agreed...I thought it got a little too weird. Liked the original version better.

That's a bad ass scene & Movie. Tom Laughlin got all weird after that though.

Not from my generation, but Somtimes a Great Notion with Paul Newman is one of those that seemed to slip through the cracks.

Great movie and I made an earlier post about this flick--the ending scene with Fonda's severed arm, hand clawed into a middle finger while Newman sips a beer as they tug by the crowd is a classic.

Another great flick I have on my DVR--The Devil's Brigade

If we forgot about them how can we post them here? huh? Genius?

Another coming of age in the 1980s movie that actually holds up and isn't supremely stupid:

Three O'Clock High.

Great movie!

One of those on real late at night movies snuck out and watched on TV after parents went to bed, back when was in junior high school.

Three of my favorites from the 60s - "Dr. Zhivago" - "Lawrence of Arabia" and "El Cid".
