Charmian Carr who played the lovely Liesl – the eldest of the von Trapp children in The Sound Of Music passed away. She featured in the iconic You Are Sixteen song in what remains one of my favourite movies ever.
Extremely saddened by the passing away of the great Omar Sharif, who acted in some epic movies like Doctor Zhivago, Lawrence Of Arabia, Funny Girl and Mackenna’s Gold among others.
Extremely saddened to hear about Robin Williams. Such a fine actor who could bring about such a vast range of emotions within us with his amazing performances. Hope you are in a better place.
Somehow recent events in my country reminded me of this great movie by Stanley Kubrick. It was seriously disturbing and yet it feels very relevant today.
One of the greatest directors hindi cinema has ever seen passed away today. Yash Chopra. He gave a ton of hits each with brilliant music and its difficult to pick a favorite. Personally mine would be Lamhe, but the King of Romance made an epic story of two brothers on opposite sides of the law which remains an all-time great – Deewaar. We will miss you Yashji.
This will always remain one of my favorite action films of all-time. It was raw, violent, realistic and a whole lot of fun. Bruce Willis catapulted to instant superstardom and a lot of movies after this followed its format. They would often be called “Die Hard on a ______”. Love the film, loved the poster. Yippee-Ki-Yay!
I’ll really miss Tony Scott’s movies. As the poster of Top Gun says… Up there with the Best of the Best.
RIP Nora Ephron. Made some great romcoms and although its not a genre I prefer, this one is my favorite. Click for hi-res.
An absolute classic poster from the 1976 boxing movie about an underdog that went on to win 3 Oscars including best picture. The series went on to have 5 more sequels.
Very few posters are as epic, commanding and iconic as this one from T2. Arnie, please be back!
