I think what I'd trim is mostly towards the end. It's not that it's a long movie that it bothers me, but come on, the last 10 minutes before the credits are just people signing documents!! Though really I don't know that there isn't a three hour movie that doesn't make me yawn at least a little, GWTW could have a lot of its final quadrant shuttled and I wouldn't mind but I don't know how I'd pull that off, either.
I used to imagine Adrian Denning's jealous posts about George Starostin being spoken aloud in Lord Bullingdon's voice. Or maybe Captain Quinn's. If she's in the habit of givin intimate articles of her clothin to web reviewers, well she can have 'em sir!!!
I haven't seen O'Neal in much else since I stopped Love Story like 20 minutes in. They didn't do much to make him look older in later scenes either. Just put a gray wig on him. ZZZZZZZ.
I remember TonyV saying that he didn't like all the washed out cinematography and zooms in 1970s films. Lots of zooms in this one!!!
I think my favorite moment in the whole movie is Barry's toddler son smirking and leering when Lord Bullingdon gets his ass whupped. Kubrick being a sadistic a*shole or at least depicting it.
Didja spot Wolf Kahler (Dietrich from Raiders Of The Lost Ark?) Howzabout Steven Berkoff (cop who gets his nose grabbed by Alex in ACO) as Lord Ludd? Both the old writer guy who gets revenge on Alex, and the guy who's Alex's father in ACO (and the butler who killed his family in The Shining) are in there, that latter guy is the only person I can think of who's in three Kubrick movies. The old writer guy plays the Chevalier.
I just wrote this entire f***ing paragraph without seeing that you already wrote about Mr. Chromedome. That guy's a good actor. So menacing in The Shining when talking about corrrrrecting his daughters and his wife, and so STUPID in ACO.
Captain Quin's one of the people at the meeting in 2001: A Space Odyssey. That guy (Quin) is so hilariously pompous. I'd watch an entire movie of him.
Final actor connection: Pat Roach is the big burly ruddy guy who fist fights Barry over the greasy cup when Barry has to serve in the military. That guy's the same guy who fights Indiana Jones and gets chopped up by the plane in Raiders, and the guy in the turban who gets sucked under the stonecrusher in Temple Of Doom. And he's a bouncer in the milk bar at the beginning of ACO. We all know Spielberg loved Kubrick so there.
