Gunga Din (1939)


November 17th

At this point in his career, George Stevens had only directed musicals and comedies, thus I believe he was the wrong choice to direct an action/adventure epic. The action sequences themselves in Gunga Din have no suspense or urgency to them, while none of the characters in the movie stood out to me bar Cary Grant who did mange to carry the movie along, well because, he's Cary Grant.

I was beginning to question if there remained any Jimmy Stewart gems for me to discover, making this film a pleasant surprise. The exposition at the beginning and end of the film regarding a murder case which had me confused from the very beginning prevents me from giving this movie a higher score, but the chemistry Stewart and Claudette Colbert made the film a joy to watch, with this being the most I've enjoyed a Colbert performance to date.

I couldn't connect with any of the characters, but the film was both funny and weird enough that I never got bored.

Nice variety of movies!
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Feb 25 18:45
Good list, man. I envy all your classic viewings. Reminds me I need to catch up on a few.
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Feb 25 20:33
Thanks man! :)

Haha, nice to see that Tiny Toons comment in there. Still one of my favourite animated features of all-time. I agree that Plucky's subplot was the best part, but I even liked the Elmyra and Fifi scenes. What a bonkers little sadist Elmyra was! KISS YOURSELF! KISS YOURSELF! KISS YOURSELF!

Wow. I'm honoured to have been mentioned in the "Trouble in Paradise" comment and appreciate your thoughtful reaction to the picture.

I do think it's one that's deeper than it appears on the surface, requiring more than one viewing to completely process everything it's up to and everything it gets so very right in the directing, writing, acting, etc.

I recommend Ebert's review, which nicely articulates a lot of its positive qualities. I hope you'll put some time between another viewing and perhaps find it even more appealing the second time around (as I did).

I'm glad to see a positive rating for "The Good Fairy" too. I think that's a much more flawed picture than "Trouble in Paradise", but they're both pictures I recall fondly.

Parts of "The Good Fairy" really got on my nerves, but in general I also think it's a very endearing movie that should be seen by more people and I have a lot of love for the ending, which I found pitch perfect.

Yay! You watched another Kay Francis picture! Thoughts? I liked that one a lot. She and William Powell were co-stars several times and I always enjoy seeing them together.

I love Carole Lombard and John Barrymore in "Twentieth Century" (and in general), but don't you think they went waaaaaaay too over-the-top towards the end of that picture?

Eventually their constant screaming and shooting was just too much. They started getting on my nerves and gave me a bit of a headache. =P Cute ending, though.

You gotta hand it to Lombard, she gave the performance her all and wasn't afraid to look and sound ridiculous. I loved her little kicks in the train.

Sorry, I keep clogging up your profile and list with my comments. I hope you'll forgive the excess commenting...please don't shut the iron door on me!

Just out of curiosity, were you (like me) reminded of "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" when you watched "Westworld"? I thought one of the coolest things about that movie was how it seems to have influenced the T-1000 character.

I need to watch "Dinner At Eight" again someday. I feel like I didn't appreciate it fully. It has such an eclectic cast, but the only two that left much of an impression on me were John Barrymore (for being so tragic) and Jean Harlow (for being so funny). Whaddya hear, whaddya say? Did you have a similar reaction or did anyone else stand out to you in the picture?
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Jun 21 17:35
What's with all the Errol Flynn? Is his magnetism drawing you to one movie of his after another, as is the case with a certain friend of ours? =P If so, I totally get it. He was a beautiful, beautiful man and such a consummate charmer. =)

What did you think of "The Lion in Winter"? I liked it, but I was disappointed by the inconclusiveness of the ending. Not that I expect every ending to have 'everything wrapped up in a neat little package'.

It's just that, in this case, I would have preferred something more than just everything basically staying the same. I wanted a murder, release from imprisonment, or abdication, dammit! After all the apparent build-up towards a major event, getting none of that felt anti-climactic to me.
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Jun 25 15:57
I'm very disappointed by your comment about "A Long Day's Journey Into Night". Not because I've seen it. It's just that I've been interested in this movie for awhile. I love Lumet and Hepburn and I think it has one of the coolest titles I've ever seen. I also heard it's based on a very good play, so your reaction is quite surprising.
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Jun 29 16:35
Ah, what a relief. Another person who was completely turned off by the rambling mess that was eight and a half. I've tried to watch a few of that fella's movies and couldn't stand most of them because they felt so meandering, boring, and incomprehensibly abstract, with no characters I could understand or care about.

I'm going to try one more and if I don't like it, I'm done with this director. I am not impressed with him so far and it's good to see that we're on the same page about at least one of his pictures. Don't tell Severin, though. She loves the weirdo. =P

P.S. Your "Rubber" comments amuse me. It's fun when you rip on a movie...as long as it's not one that I know and like. =)

Omg, you gave 8 1/2 3 stars? Blasphemy! Oh and it looks like you've seen some Flynn films, cooool.
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Jul 23 14:29
Good to see you enjoying a Sidney Lumet picture again. =)
Posted: 5 years ago at Aug 2 0:09
Haha, I love that comment on "The Lady Eve". You, me, and Severin are totally the "Against The Lady Eve's Third Act!" club now. We all had that same reaction - what a perfect movie...until it falls apart towards the end! So frustrating!
