Yes, but you also said that its “birth” was in the 1930s. “Invented” = Born. Jeeze Louise, quit with the dodgeball game.

Erm, don't you mean the 2nd decade? We're talking about the 1910s,...

Film history is a passion of mine so there’s no need for the lesson. ;)

Anyway, you’re entirely missing the point. You say that the 1930s were the “birth of cinema” when it was actually 1895 with...

My take on it is that Jackson's character (Lt. Packard) is a career soldier & a warmonger, to boot, frustrated that the war in Vietnam is coming to an end without a victory on his side. He needs a...

Thanks to Demitasse's bump of the other Ronny Coutteure thread (http://raven.theraider.net/showthread.php?t=12015), it just dawned on me that I never translated the 4th page of Sakis' article. If...

It's worth pointing out that colour in "Raiders" was tampered for the Blu-ray (and the IMAX version). Many sequences have a yellowish-orangish hue or the contrast has been fiddled with. It doesn't...

You can bet your hat that there'll be a girl in Indy 5. It's inevitable, unfortunately, and the 2 latest "Star Wars" movies are very telling indicators.

Forbidden Eye doesn't mean "obvious" &...

Post 1917 October

The action at the very beginning of "Daredevils of the Desert" is the Second Battle of Gaza which actually took place in April 1917 so there is a huge gap in time between this and the scene where...

Another title that shouldn't have used the word, "Every".

Why do these lists leave out "Journey to Shiloh"? (Probably because the writers have never seen it.) He plays one of the main characters...

Funny how only 50% of the top 10 are genuine "movie characters" with the other half being from novels or comic books. Literary classics like King Arthur, King Lear, Don Quixote, Jane Eyre, etc. have...

This article should be called, "Most of Harrison Ford's Movies, Ranked" because it certainly doesn't include EVERY one. There are several missing from the list. :down:

Yes, the "other" language is supposed to be Quechuan. It could be a regional dialect.

Are you sure about that? Thanks for letting us know. :rolleyes:

It's not a "deleted scene", it's an alternate take. The scene is in the movie but this is a different version of it.
