Uploaded on Dec 21, 2011

Einar and Eric are two Viking half-brothers. The former is a great warrior whilst the other is an ex-slave, but neither knows the true identity of the other. When the throne of Northumbria in Britain becomes free for the taking, the two brothers compete against one another for the prize, but they have very different motives - both involving the princess Morgana, however.
In the Middle Ages, Viking warriors continue to raid the English coast. In one such raid the Viking leader Ragnar kills the English king and forces himself on the Queen. With the King dead, his brother takes the thrown but unknown to anyone but a trusted servant, the Queen is now with child. In order to protect the boy, he is sent away to be raised in safety away from the new King. Twenty years later, the Vikings under are still raiding England and they now have an Englishman, Egbert, making maps of the English coast for them. Ragnar has a son, Einar, a lusty warrior who takes what he wants when he wants it. They also have a slave, Eric, taken prisoner as an infant. Egbert realizes from a necklace Eric wears that he is the son of the Queen and is Einar's half-brother. When they kidnap Morgana, a Welsh beauty and the English King's betrothed, the stage is set for an inevitable clash between the half-brothers and with the reigning English King.

Not well known movie probably. It stars British actor Lewis Collins who was popular at the time (1982) following several series of successful UK TV show "The Professionals" about Special Squad agent team "Bodie and Doyle"
Here Collins plays a similar? role for a big-screen movie.

The Man Who Would Be King

NOT available on youtube... I have looked, but just for fun I did a google serach (expecting to fail) and just found a site where the full movie seems to be available... about to watch it.

http://www.tubeplus.me/movie/557357/The ... d_Be_King/

Image

From Wikepedia
Quote:
The Man Who Would Be King is a 1975 film adapted from the Rudyard Kipling short story of the same title. It was adapted and directed by John Huston and starred Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Saeed Jaffrey, and Christopher Plummer as Kipling (giving a name to the short story's anonymous narrator).

The film follows two rogue ex-non-commissioned officers of the Indian Army who set off from late 19th-century British India in search of adventure and end up as kings of Kafiristan. Kipling is believed to have been inspired by the travels of fellow British Imperialist freemason Alexander Burnes during the period of the Great Game between Imperial Russia and the British Empire. Burnes crossed the Hindu Kush twice and wrote a published account of the Kaffirs of Afghanistan. He was known as "Sikunder Burnes" and he and his brother James are still viewed as highly important figures in Indian freemasonry. The hero Danny of The Man Who Would Be King, is like Burnes known as "Sikander", like Burnes a Freemason, visits "Kaffiristan" and like Burnes is a British government employee. None of these things are true of the American Josiah Harlan, who was not British nor a freemason and whose identification with The Man Who Would Be King is thought by some scholars to perhaps have been part of a marketing plan for Kipling's work, given Harlan's relatively general notoriety at the time of its publication.

One my favorite movies....

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD (1967)

http://www.tubeplus.me/player/183670/Fa ... ing_Crowd/

From Wikepedia
Quote:
Far from the Madding Crowd is a 1967 drama film adapted from the book of the same name by Thomas Hardy. It stars Julie Christie, Alan Bates, Terence Stamp, and Peter Finch, and was directed by John Schlesinger. It was Schlesinger's fourth film (and his third collaboration with Christie) and marked a stylistic shift away from his earlier works which explored contemporary urban mores. The cinematography was by Nicolas Roeg and the soundtrack was by Richard Rodney Bennett. Traditional folk songs were also used in various scenes throughout the film.

It was nominated for one Oscar for best Original music score and two BAFTA's, Best British Cinematography (Colour) and Best British Costume (Colour).

Alan Bates is a favourite actor. Great portrayal of Gabriel Oak.

And a favourite quote:

Gabriel Oak: "At home by the fire, whenever I look up, there you will be. And whenever you look up, there I shall be."

From Thomas Gray's "Elergy Written in a Country Churchyard"
    Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife
    Their sober wishes never learn'd to stray;
    Along the cool sequester'd vale of life
    They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.

Alfie (1966 film)

http://www.tubeplus.me/player/29016/Alfie/

From Wikepedia
Quote:
Alfie is a 1966 British film directed by Lewis Gilbert, starring Michael Caine. It is an adaptation by Bill Naughton of his own novel and play of the same name. The film was released by Paramount Pictures.

Alfie tells the story of a womanising young man (Caine) who leads a self-centered life, purely for his own enjoyment, until events force him to question his uncaring behaviour and his aloneness. He cheats on numerous women, and despite his charm towards women, he treats them with disrespect and refers to them as "it", using them for sex and for domestic purposes. Alfie frequently breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the camera narrating and justifying his actions. His words often contrast with or totally contradict his actions.

Alfie was the first film to receive the "suggested for mature audiences" classification by the Motion Picture Association of America in the United States which evolved into today's PG rating.

Get Carter (1971)

http://www.tubeplus.me/player/206604/Get_Carter/

From Wikepedia
Quote:
Get Carter is a 1971 British crime film directed by Mike Hodges and starring Michael Caine, Ian Hendry,[4] Britt Ekland, John Osborne and Bryan Mosley. The screenplay was adapted by Hodges from Ted Lewis' 1969 novel Jack's Return Home. Producer Michael Klinger optioned the book and made a deal for the ailing MGM studio to finance and release the film, bringing in Hodges and Caine. Caine became a co-producer of the film. Get Carter was Hodges' first feature film as director, as well as marking the screen debut of Alun Armstrong. MGM were scaling back their European operations and the film became the last project approved before the American company closed its Borehamwood studios. The film is set in North East England and was filmed in and around Newcastle Upon Tyne, Gateshead, and County Durham.

Pulp Fiction

http://www.tubeplus.me/player/434498/Pulp_Fiction/

From Wikepedia
Quote:
Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino, who also co-wrote the screenplay along with Roger Avary.[4] The film is known for its eclectic dialogue, ironic mix of humor and violence, nonlinear storyline, and a host of cinematic allusions and pop culture references. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. It was also awarded the Palme d'Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. A major critical and commercial success, it revitalized the career of its leading man, John Travolta, who received an Academy Award nomination, as did costars Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.

Directed in a highly stylized manner, Pulp Fiction connects the intersecting storylines of Los Angeles mobsters, fringe players, small-time criminals, and a mysterious briefcase. Considerable screen time is devoted to conversations and monologues that reveal the characters' senses of humor and perspectives on life. The film's title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue. Pulp Fiction is self-referential from its opening moments, beginning with a title card that gives two dictionary definitions of "pulp." The plot, as in many of Tarantino's other works, is presented out of chronological sequence.

The picture's self-reflexivity, unconventional structure, and extensive use of homage and pastiche have led critics to describe it as a prime example of postmodern film. Considered by some critics a black comedy, the film is also frequently labeled a "neo-noir." Critic Geoffrey O'Brien argues otherwise: "The old-time noir passions, the brooding melancholy and operatic death scenes, would be altogether out of place in the crisp and brightly lit wonderland that Tarantino conjures up. [It is] neither neo-noir nor a parody of noir." Similarly, Nicholas Christopher calls it "more gangland camp than neo-noir," and Foster Hirsch suggests that its "trippy fantasy landscape" characterizes it more definitively than any genre label. Pulp Fiction is viewed as the inspiration for many later movies that adopted various elements of its style. The nature of its development, marketing, and distribution and its consequent profitability had a sweeping effect on the field of independent cinema. Considered a cultural watershed, Pulp Fiction's influence has been felt in several other media, and it is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.
