    Very good scene.The first Iron Man movie was very entertaining , but as usually happens the second part was not very good
    Iron Man 2had its entertainment value, especially with the appearance of War Machine. However the first film was brilliant and Downey was equally brilliant as Tony Stark.

    I think this thread can be renamed "The Film Thread." ;P

    I've got an inkling to watch Young Guns again, a highly fictionalized movie about Billy the Kid (played by Emilio Estevez, 1/4 Spanish from his father aka Ramon Estevez aka Martin Sheen who is 1/2 Spanish & 1/2 Irish).

    I don't think I've met a Spaniard who dislikes Westerns to be perfectly honest. :O I think this is a point of commonality between the USA and Spain and the countries descended from Spain- the mythos of the cowboy/vaquero. :O

    There is a thread (in Spanish) about how the American cowboy is actually of Spanish origin, despite the false image created by Hollywood:

    In Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil inhabited the gauchos, were very good riders and brave warriors. They fought in the wars of independence and civil wars of the nineteenth century. Also were good workers in rural tasks.

    The most famous books on Argentina are "El gaucho Martín Fierrro"(1872) and "la vuelta de Martín Fierro"(1879) of Jose Hernandez, which tells the story of a persecuted gaucho, in the last decades of the nineteenth century the Gauchos were persecuted by the liberal elites.

    Their core values ​​were courage, hospitality, friendship, generosity, in fact today in Argentina "hacer (make) una gauchada" means doing a favor.

    Gaucho - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This article talks about their fighting style and about the most famous gaucho Juan Moreyra, is very interesting

    Re: What movie did you last watch?

    Actually, gaucho literature is a whole literary genre, Martín Fierro being the best known book in the genre. You should also read some gaucho poetry, although I don't know if it is available in English. But there should be translations of the Martín Fierro.

    The Chilean equivalent of the gaucho is the huaso. The expresión "hacer una gauchada" is also common in Chile. And in fact, there are continental rodeo championships where riders from all over Hispanic America, including Brazil, take part. And there are local competitions in the different countries also. I once attended one in Colombia and the riders looked as if they had stepped out of a Western movie, except that they all spoke Spanish. In some Mexican movies, like the recent one about the Cristeros, as well as many others, you see the villages and the village people and it all looks very Western-like. That's only natural, since the West of the U.S.A. used to be part of Mexico, until it was conquered in a war. That's why you see so many Spanish toponyms in the Southwestern U.S. and why all the vocabulary related to cowboys is Spanish or words coming from Spanish (rodeo, corral, rancho, chaps, remuda, saloon, lassoo, lariat, buckaroo, hoosgow, burro, bandolier, patio, desperado, bronco, mestizo, coyote, calaboose, munstang, chaparral, pueblo, tornado, sombrero, vamoose, etc.), although in some cases the pronunciation and/or spelling make them unrecognizable.

    In this site are available good translations of "El Gaucho Martín Fierro" and "La vuelta de Martín Fierro".
    Works and texts relating to the Kavanagh family

    As you said, the gaucho literature is a literary genre and Martin Fierro is the best known book of gaucho literature.
    Other very good books about gaucho literature are Juan Moreira, Don Segundo Sombra, Santos Vega and many others.

    The Dark Knight Returns Part II.The best Batman movie in years, based on the 1986 Frank Miller graphic novel- the climax of the movie is where Batman fights with (and beats) Superman before dying (apparently) because of a heart attack.

    Solomon Kane.​ A bloody good film- the Puritan avenger is one of my favorite literary characters to come out of the writings of Robert E. Howard.

    Solomon Kane (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Solomon Kane is a 2009 epic action film directed by Michael J. Bassett based on the pulp magazine character Solomon Kane created in 1928 byRobert E. Howard. James Purefoy stars in the title role.[2] Despite optioning the rights in 1997, filming did not begin until January 2008. The film is an origin story for the Kane character and intended to be the first of a trilogy. The plot follows a redemption story for Kane, from the end of his life as aprivateer, through the salvation of his soul by rescuing a Puritan girl and the beginning of his life as the Puritan avenger of the source material. It was produced by a consortium of French, Czech and British companies and mostly filmed in the Czech Republic. The film was first shown at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. It went on general release in France, Spain and the UK over the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010. Reception was generally favourable, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 64% following the UK/US release; the film's atmosphere and Purefoy's acting attracted the most acclaim.

    The Untouchables.

    The Untouchables is a 1987 American crime drama directed by Brian De Palma and written by David Mamet. Based on the book The Untouchables, the film stars Kevin Costner as government agent Eliot Ness. It also stars Robert De Niro as gang leader Al Capone and Sean Connery as Irish-American officer Jimmy Malone. The film follows Ness' autobiographical account of the efforts of him and his Untouchables to bring Capone to justice during Prohibition.

    The Untouchables was released on June 3, 1987, and received positive reviews. Observers praised the film for its approach, as well as its direction. The film was also a financial success, grossing $76 million domestically. The Untouchables was nominated for four Academy Awards, of which Connery received one for Best Supporting Actor.

    The best character was Malone, Sir Sean Connery's character, the crusty old Irish Catholic cop. He hated Italians and was a follower of St. Jude (as far as the movie is concerned, which is based partly upon the writings of Eliot Ness) . His death in the movie was memorable.

    One of the best Brian De Palma's films. I really like the "StairwayShootout" scene, a brilliant homage to the "Odessa stairs" scene in Battleship Potemkin.

    The Exorcist.

    Some foul language ahoy. Chilling! This is my favorite horror film.


    This year the film has fulfilled 40 years and it has not lost any of its original catholic message sought by the great couple who made this masterpiece of Film History, which were the director William Friedkin (which, curiously, is not catholic) and the screenwritter W. P. Blatty (who inspired himself in a real case).

    And, what was this mesagge which they tried to comunicate (as they had, by the by, recently remember, when Friedkin said in an interview that he didn´t intended a horror or scary film, but a Faith film) to the agnostic current world? A simple thing, but very important thing: that the devil exists; and if the devil exists, then God exists; and if God exists, all we will be judged by God in the other life; and that the devil and the sin can be overcome, but only with the grace and the power of true God, i.e., the grace and power that only can come from Christ, through the channel of his Holy Mother the Virgin Mary, and distributed by the ministers of the Holy Wife of Christ, the Catholic Church, through the sacraments (especially the Holy Sacrifice of Mass) and, in second order, through the sacramentals (the ritual of exorcism is a sacramental).

    This film is not only a work of art, but is one of the best catholic films of 7th Art History (and this is the reason the "official" critics hate and detest this film, or try to trivialice it labelling it as only a "scary or horror" movie).

    The film adaptation of Return of the King. The book is much better than the film.

    I love the charge of the men of Rohir on Pelennor Field. :O

    Tolkien was an amazing author. I think one has to be an Anglosaxon Catholic to truly understand what JRRT was about. o/

    One Man's Hero - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    One Man's Hero is a 1999 film starring Tom Berenger and directed by Lance Hool. The film has the distinction of being the last film released by Orion Pictures' arthouse division Orion Classics, and the final film released by Orion altogether.

    The film is a dramatization of the true story of Jon Riley and the Saint Patrick's Battalion, a group of Irish Catholic immigrants who desert from the mostly Protestant U.S. Army to the mostly Catholic Mexican side during the Mexican-American War of 1846 to 1848.
