Well, after all, whats not to like about Carlin, unless you are easily insulted. This compilation of Carlin video through the years will make you think, if nothing else.
This special video looks at George Carlin's best comedy material from 1977-1990. This special edition looks at his famous Seven dirty words, baseball and football, losing things, dogs and cats, stuff and monopoly. Written by Jack Gattanella
Personally, I love Carlin. But even I could not get past the first 20 minutes of these acts. Doesn't matter what the subject is, Carlin has the same exact delivery for every one of them.
While this is the best stuff, and am glad it has been recorded for history as he has since passed.... enough is enough. See this one on installments unless you are really really wide awake and cannot go to sleep OR just absolutely are obscessed with George Carlin.
Suggest this in small doses taken with time in between for maximum effect.

A stunning 2 hour b&w documentary thats about as "complete" a review of the group's evolution from childhood band to iconic status as The Beatles. Nothing is missed, complete with notable interviews of fellow performers at the time in Liverpool and Hamburg, before they EVER gained popularity.
A treasure trove of early, really early Beatle history. A sacred bible for those fans and anyone interested to know.
The narrator is none other than that lead actor from A Clockwork Orange and he does a grand job too!
Start with the first part of the film here and hopefully you will find the other parts as you go on youtube:
"It wasn't their music which sold them to me; it was their charm. They were very charming people."-George Martin.
You'll find out all sorts of trivia. For instance, their popular US album "Meet the Beatles", with black and white faces of the fab four with shadows was inspired by a girl photographer named Astra, dating Stuart Sutcliff, a fellow friend/ music college student of Paul. Of course, all the common knowledge biography is here, but lots lots more.
"They generally wrote their own songs...they would play them, one to the other...It was very much a competition, and a very healthy one."-George Martin

[A strange trivia fact is that the title is using the archaic 1653 spelling "compleat", as used in the title of the Compleat Angler written in 1653. The correct spelling today is, of course, "complete", but you won't find the film on RT or Amazon.com if you use the word complete. You must use "compleat".]
"At the moment they were being given a philosophy in which they could live their lives as individuals, at that very second, Brian died: the one who wanted them to be as a group."-Marianne Faithfull

Narrated by none other than Malcome McDowell of A Clockwork Orange, the MGM documentary got rave reviews. Can be watched more than once for rare Cavern and Hamburg film footage plus the band's U.S. tour and beyond.

NOTES about the film:
1 The Compleat Beatles, released in 1982, is a two-hour documentary, chronicling the career of the "Fab Four". Though it has since been supplanted by the longer and more in-depth documentary Beatles Anthology, The Compleat Beatles was for many years largely regarded as the definitive source of information on the Beatles.
2 "The weary faces on the cover of the next British LP, Beatles for Sale, showed that Beatlemania was taking its toll."
3 "Magical Mystery Tour...was their first venture following Brian's death. Largely a project of Paul's, the idea was to travel the English countryside in a bus filled with friends, actors and circus freaks, and to film whatever happened. Unfortunately, nothing did."
4 ""Hey Jude" was their first release from the newly formed Apple Corps. The song was seven minutes long, double the length of most singles. Radio stations usually refused to play a song that lasted more than three minutes, but once again the Beatles were the exception to the rule. "Hey Jude" became the Beatles' largest-selling single of all."

While crudely filmed, it is quite effective as a movie. Sadly, half the film or more is devoted to NOT the Spitfire. It goes into airplane races and trophies. Lots of hurray, pip pip and jolly good. But the story of the development of the plane that virtually saved England during the Nazi Blitz should not be ignored.
Actor and producer Leslie Howard (Gone With the Wind)
stars with David Niven
in this informative history lesson about Hitler's designs on Great Britain. Airplane development is most desired and this is the story of the man who did it, an artist named Mitchell.
Leslie Howard's portrayal of Mitchell has a special significance since Howard was killed when the transport aircraft in which he was a passenger was shot down by the Luftwaffe one year after the film was released.
A newsreel sets the scene for summer 1940, showing Nazi advances in Europe with England facing invasion and aerial attacks on the island increasing. On 15 September 1940, during the Battle of Britain, RAF Squadron Leader Geoffrey Crisp (David Niven), the station commander of a Spitfire squadron, recounts the story of how his friend, R.J. Mitchell (Leslie Howard) designed the Spitfire fighter.
Lots of great fighter footage, landings, etc. Great for WWII aviator film buffs. Shows what it was really like on the ground when the Bosch, ie Germans, came attacking England.

REVIEWS of the film:
1 I can´t believe this visionary designer had no official recognition. It´s unacceptable and shameful for the RAF and British Empire. Such things may occur. But the course of life has conferred him the historic recognition which is invaluable: the best warbird ever.------laserie2
...with great performances. Certainly worth the watch, though a restored print would be nice.
FINE WW2 ACTIONER, NICELY DONE BY LESLIE HOWARD
NOTEs about the film:
1 The film's title alludes to Winston Churchill's speech describing Battle of Britain aircrew: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
2 Howard portrayed Mitchell as upper class and mild-mannered. Mitchell - "the Guv'nor" - was in fact working class and had an explosive temper; apprentices were told to watch the colour of his neck and to run if it turned red.
3 Full length feature drama about Supermarine and the war. Contains actual Supermarine footage not available anywhere else.

Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night, HELP!) who came out of retirement to film this tour documentary film. Paul McCartney's first world tour in 13 years, this is a composite mix of many if not all the cities they visited.
His wife Linda is on stage to perform along with several others (unknown to me, but might be from his group Wings).
Has 22 complete live musical performances of Beatle and solo McCartney hit songs. Filmed before sell out crowds in 45 cities in 13 countries, includes the Guiness book record for the then largest audience ever to see a solo performance (Rio de Janeiro) at 184,368 fans.
92 minutes of well shot and edited concert footage. I didn't care much for all the editing that packed in so many cities during a single song. Dolby stereo in vhs format. Rated PG (why I don't know, but the case says for some material not suited to children).
Haven't rewatched this again. The first time was enough with only one Beatle present. Some songs were toyed with, updated or something like that so they weren't faithful to the original songs. Includes lesser known songs from Wings as well.
This is not just one concert but many spliced together for each song.
Produced by Bette Davis this is a love triangle story with identical twin sisters played by Davis (for her 2nd time btw) both angling for the same lucky guy Glenn Ford. Ford is a loner and keeper of lighthouse. Kate is the simple artist girl who finds him. Her sister is the fast paced socialite that eventually marries him. But wait! It's not over till its over. This is a well done melodrama but due to its well done and well acted quality something romance drama fans will relish.
Set in Victorian England this film is all about a marriage gone bad, Agatha's, but a new romance begun by Dustin with Redgrave as Agatha Christie.
Poignant, slow paced film shows how Agatha disappeared after a terrible argument with her husband (once Bond star) Tim Hutton. Dustin Hoffman as an American journalist visiting England is determined to find Agatha and falls in love with her. Turns out to be an ill fated love however and things get really interesting as Agatha plots her own suicide.
The movie didn't move me much until the last half when the action picks up to save Agatha from herself. The ending is poignant and a bit sad.
A heartfelt film, not the one for you realistic film goers,but a nice film non-the-less. At first watching, I gave this 70%, but toward the end I bumped it up to 80%.
While not my favorite, Note One was a bit of a stretch. But now we have another NOTE. Hence, Note II, the title. This stuff is really fiction. But let me say this, the last half hour redeems the beginning.
Truth they say, is stranger than fiction. Fact of the matter is, however, fiction is just that... a made up bunch of what usually never happens in real life.
The day that a columnist would research my tragic love life is the day I win the lottery, bigtime. Fat chance, Fat tire.
But we can all live vicariously through this film. Substituting the plot for our own lives, we can find substance.
Another TV type film, the son and father (King) relationship unfolds. Its a pretty bitter one until the son finds what he really wants in life at the end of the film.
This wild and woolly film is beyond the pale, unfortunately. It is beyond truth, it is into fiction. That being said, the movie as a whole is more than the sum of its parts.
I would recommend this film IF you are willing to watch it to the very end. Touching and insightful.
If you like Caine you will love this one. Why the audience didn't like this one is beyond me. Caine's son is kidnapped and as he works for the British secret service he becomes involved in a ransom attempt on his son. The Brits won't pay up so its up to him to deliver the ransom and he tries but it is not so easy. This is a fast paced thriller which is well worth your time. Without Caine as a star this could have been just another movie about extortion.
Mel Brooks reached new lows in this one despite he and the rest of the cast trying to slug it out. A bad parody of Star Wars it tries to use the same idea right down to Darth Vader impersonations. It takes a lot for me to give up on a film by Brooks or John Candy but this one was enough for me to ditch it and not continue watching.
I get the attempt at the humor which is mostly slapstick but man this is pretty poor stuff.
ps: M. Rick is in war torn Casablanca 1942 on his movie set but you can reply by stamped envelope to firstname.lastname@example.org RT Friends are encouraged to reply.....
The photo shots here shown in the RT movie info page is outrageously NOT from the film. Does RT care anything abut accuracy? Apparently not.
That said this is a somewhat tedious and therefore slow moving account of a secretly lonely middle aged secretary on a personal tour of Venice Italy. She gets swept up in the romance of the visit and by the way you get to see lots of great views of Venice the city.
David Lean (also of so many classics like Lawrence of Arabia) directed this one and Kate Hepburn (alas NOT Audrey Hepburn) plays the usual aged independent woman but secretly needing a man. She stumbles on the lead none other than Rossini Brazzi a well known Italian actor of the day.
It takes a third of the film to get into their relationship made difficult that he is married and she is not. But he is quite the charmer as is ever Italian man seen in this film. She has plenty of encounters on the streets and canals of Venice to forewarn her of these wolf Italian men but nevertheless falls for this guy.
A muture romantic relationship ensues and its quite charming. The film is difficult to find on the Amazon firestick using Exodus as some other modern Italian film keeps popping up in its place.
This film is SO late fifties but the cinematography is excellent.
How refreshing to see this! Caine walks up some steps in a scene and turns around to speak to US ! in the audience or in our home about just what he is about to do. This intriguing film made me a fast fan of Caine and in this role of a fast mover on his "prey" Caine comes off as a slick amoral character who takes advantage of any woman married or not. For the current film goer this film is pretty tame sexually but for its day it was really OUT THERE. Give it a view and while Brit humor is not our humor it still has appeal to many.
A refreshingly romantic comedy from John Candy as a friendly cop but all too single for too long guy. Not without a woman however he is dating for 8 years a woman he works for in a tire shop. He stumbles upon a morticians daughter who works on dead clients cosmetic appearance hoping to make it big in show biz or some other uplifting profession. Exceedingly shy she and Candy hook up for the usual romance save for his living with his mother way too long in his bachelor life. Torn between his widowed mother and this new love in his life he trys to satisfy both but the mother is so dominant he dare not offend her. Maureen O'Hara makes a great Irish mother. Would be interesting to know how she got cast in the film. Not the usual Uncle Buck character Candy is still great in a semi comedic role. I liked this film and it held my attention almost to the end. His favorite saying is being a cop has benefits and more than once you will see evidence of that. Not hilarious but has its moments.
Candy is cast superbly in this rather predictable plot. Many funny scenes. Well worth your time especially if you like John Candy.
Did not care for Woody nor anyone else singing mostly unknown (to me) songs which get sung all too often in this many subplot musical. I had to stop watching this though I am a big fan of most Allen films. I also got tired of the male actors seemingly imitating all of Woody's mannerisms. Not very funny at all it was a disappointment and could not watch all the way through. Goldie Hawn hasn't aged one bit miraculously and though not out of her usual character was refreshing compared to all the others. I do not crave finishing this film sadly. ---
--- M. rick has spoken.
As much as I like Allen I found the pace way too fast and it never let's up when Woody is in a scene. Its like he and the cast had too much coffee. Too not credible when son is left in charge of embassy. For a TV movie I would never have guessed as it came off much better than TV films I have seen. Fox doesn't
Look comfortable in his role. Basically this film was Funny due mostly to Allen's frantic character. His wife sounds like marge Simpson and could be in fact the voice for her in The Simpsons.
I left the film half way through as it wore me out due the continuous fast talking dialog. Alan alda and Dom delouise are there usual selves. One of the less satisfying Woody films for me.
i liked this movie! De Niro is SO out of tough guy character from younger days. But my final analysis of this film is that it could NEVER happen in reality. See it for what it is.... a sentimental but not credible plot.
Interesting filming of upcoming or establised sixties groups. While less than well filmed by today's standards, this rough and at times crude filming of the concert is effective. It was in fact, the Summer of Love:
SEE the entire film here:
"It was notable as hosting the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix and The Who, as well as the first major public performances of Janis Joplin It was also the first major performance by Otis Redding in front of a predominantly white audience."
"The Monterey Pop Festival * embodied the themes of California as a focal point for the counterculture and is generally regarded as one of the beginnings of the "Summer of Love" in 1967. It also became the template for future music festivals, notably the Woodstock Festival two years later." ----Wikipedia
* The festival board included members of The Beatles

Hallmark Hall of Shame movie. Sometimes Hallmark makes good to great TV films but this isn't one of them except maybe for the ending
Another Anne Tyler book based film which did not transfer to film well for me. Peter Fonda appears midway thru the film and surely shows his age now in his 70's. He does a convincing role of a jilted teenage lover of the lead actress Danner who does a great job of being a overworked head of her numerous dysfunctional family.
Faye Dunnaway makes a mere cameo appearance so don't be fooled into watching this one because of her.
This was just about close to being a waste of 98 minutes for me though it is done well and the women are unhappy except for our ever kind Danner. Flashbacks throughout the entire film tend to be distracting but you get the idea after a half hour of them.
Nothing disturbing in this film. Maybe thats why I barely held interest.

RT has the wrong movie info for this movie. I saw the John Erman movie as described in the movie info and it was a Hallmark Hall of Fame made for TV film. That film was not what I had hoped for as the book its based on is a Pulitzer prize winning book. James Garner made me stay with the film but aside from him it didn't make much of an impression
