Brilliant line up of films Melvin [Cool]

I think the print of Airplane will be around for many more years to come, I cant see it fading for a long time yet. Its always great to have a laugh and Airplane does just that. Its timeless and got great repeat ability [Smile]

Nice to see someone mention Groove Tube again.

We had a video show this afternoon WHAT.. finally located my tapes of Derek at the Derann open days also the Birmingham film collectors events. Poor Derek he was so poorly then.

Spooling up for tonight's show. Usual classics Mickeys Christmas snowman night before Christmas and Burns Allen Christmas Show. Some things just never change..
Will be raising a glass to all the collectors who have passed on this year way too many.

Tomorrow it's 9.5 sound time Scrooge and some Betty Boop's along with Popeye.

Blimey the groove tube, its a long time since i put that one on, thanks for the reminder [Big Grin]
Will get a review up after xmas. I saw Groove tube in the cinema years ago and while it was OK, this 600ft version is actually better. The full film was mediocre but Iver did quite a good job on this one.

The Thief Of Bagad, the classical silent film with Douglas Fairbanks, on standard/regular 8. I put the film on a large 800 mt/2600 ft spool, however I had some unwanted breaks because some tape splices one of the preceeding owners did broke and I had to remake them (I used glue). Usually when this happens, I don't interrupt the projection more than the time needed to put the unspliced part on the take up spool and I splice when I rewind but due to the fact that the projector uses a (not easy to find at reasonnable price) 500 watts (100 volts, it's a specific model) bulb, I allowed everything to cool each time. When I put respooled the film (and applied Filmguard on it, I didn't see any problem with the existing splices but the only valid test is of course to run the film through a projector. I took the opportunity during one of the break to picture the installation. Despite these techincals problems (I also had to replace the bulb…), I did enjoyed the show [Smile]

Super 8 feature "That's Entertainment" 1974 [Cool]

Its strange how our we look at things as we get older. I first watched part of this film on a Pan Am 747 flight to Seattle back in January 1975. I thought then this film is boring, now I think its good [Smile]

Such is life [Wink]

On Friday 11-Jan I've watched a few new collected films, that I gave a Filmguard thread because of the preventing of dirt and dry perfs and checked how they are.
-Many advventures of Winnie the Pooh 120".
Good color and Sound, with so so perf.
Really enjoyed this

-L&H Swiss Miss B&W Sound 60"
Good picture, but terrible perf.
Scared the whole time of damage film, and piano haha.

-L&H Pack up your trouble. B&W and Sound
Pretty good, specially I received it with a few 1200" reels.
Not the funiest I think.

-Mickey's Memorable moments, Color Sound are both good. 120"
Pretty enjoyable

-Scooby Doo 120"
Suprisingly good color and sound and NL subs.
The Dutch company probably used good film.

-Jungle Book 3x 60" spiled together.
One had good color, dept and sharpness. One was faded pretty much.

I think what Brian is asking is what do you have to drink while watching your films. Such as soda and popcorn. I like some hot chocolate and crackers with peanut butter or cheese. Yum!

Wine and food matching is the process of pairing food dishes with wine to enhance the dining experience. In many cultures, wine has had a long history of being a staple at the dinner table and in some ways both the winemaking and culinary traditions of a region will have evolved together over the years.

Brian is on to something, pairing different wines with certain films. There's always Silence of the Lambs and "a nice chianti" or perhaps Star Wars with Han Solo's favorite Corellian wine.

Just hand me a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream and I'll watch anything on super 8!

(well, not many of the Adult films, except for those very funny 70's films, which look like the "R" rated
films of today! I have one sound super 8 color title (with great color even) with just about the funniest "nasal" sounding, cheesey narraration you have ever heard!)
