    Then your argument is invalid. If Roadhouse was about 30 minutes shorter (a lot less Red, a little more Tiny) it would be a perfect diamond.

    Tiny needs a backstory. Hell, Tiny needs a sequel.

    • I know this topic has been mentioned when discussing the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, but an article (and discussion) on Gizmodo about a TV episode from The Rockford Files about not trusting big corporations to harvest your personal data (obviously a credit report based episode, but it could represent Google/Facebook today) got me wondering:


      What film released years ago has aged very, very well when viewed today?

      - Tomorrow Never Dies (frequently talked about here)

      - Blue Thunder (was mentioned in the Gizmodo discussion)

      - ???

        • Logan's Run did a good job at predicting the infantilization of public space. Even better is the music store scene in Clockwork Orange -- that is the most accurate portrayal of the pure consumer societies of the West ever committed to film.

              The Siege has been since 9/11. It damned near predicted all of this...

                    The finale of the Hunger Games does this too, but ultimately fails I suppose.

                    • The Red Shoes. A+

                      I hate ballet but as god is my witness this is one of the twenty best movies I have ever seen in my life. I put off seeing it forever and now I am well and truly sorry.

                      It doesn't hurt the lead is one of the most lovely women I have ever seen.

                      It's so good even the dancing sequences are tolerable.

                      Again, A+

                      • Watched The Alpinist on Netflix. Not as good as 14 peaks, but good.

                        id forgotten what the ending would be though.

                        • The Forgotten Battle - from the Netflix description:

                          During WWII's crucial Battle of the Scheldt, the lives of a glider pilot, a Nazi soldier and a reluctant Resistance recruit tragically intersect.
                          Dutch made and on Netflix streaming this is a truly tremendous watch. This film is lacking for cliches and Hollywoodization and I love seeing WWII portrayed from a non-American perspective. They do a tremendous job in framing the realities, tragedies and occasional triumphs from the perspective of both soldiers and civilians alike. I don't recommend must see too often but this one I will unabashed.

                              • Just caught the end of All About Eve and was reminded how great it is. One of the best-written and best-acted movies of all time -- there are seven or eight Academy-worthy acting jobs (Baxter, Holm, Sanders, Davis, Marlowe, Ritter, Merrill) in it. Barbara Bates' scene at the very end, less than 5 minutes screen time, is better than Baldwin's scene in Glengarry in TOI density and could have won itself. Even the music is great. Promoted from top 10 to top 5, and infinitely rewatchable.
