The ghost of George Sanders reminds you to link your films, and that one should feel free to move on if bored.

The Sea Wolves (1980)
Somehow I was expecting naval battles on the high seas but this is more like a caper or Bond film. The film's composer borrows heavily from Addinsell's Warsaw Concerto and as an added "treat" you get to hear a pop version with lyrics as the credits roll at the end.
Live at the State Theatre in Minneapolis during his Sound Theories Tour. Backed up by drums, bass, a guitarist and two violin/keyboard players - Steve with his mighty Hands, abilities and ego to match will blow any guitarist away. Even playing his custom Ibanez guitars with wider necks to accommodate those gigantic paws - he still never has to cross over the fret board beyond 2/3rds the length of his hands. Any and every other guitarist always has the bottom of the neck nestled firmly between thumb and forefinger just to reach the top strings!
You may have seen Steve years ago when he played the Devil's white boy guitar player in the movie Crossroads (where he played all the electric guitars and Ry Cooder all the acoustics). I hung out with him frequently at a practice studio in the late 70's. He was shy then, but after decades of being the greatest speed rock guitarist in the world he's probably deserving of that ego. Most guitarists his age have long since backed off due to arthritis (Steve Howe comes to mind), but Vai's fingers still fly across those frets as Bog intended.
You may be surprised after all this to discover that I'm not a fan of his music. But being a former guitarist myself I grovel at his amazing abilities and longevity.
The concert spans 2 discs and is beautifully photographed. The sound was gorgeous and I could hear every nuanced note and technique from all the musicians, even in my fairly average 5.1 system. So - highly recommended for guitar lovers.
Sadly, while reposting this and connecting the linkys, NF has now declared the second disc Unavailable. I may have been the last customer to enjoy it! *bummer*
This garbage is only a little better than a teen slasher flick - a slasher flick for tweens maybe.
Dems fightin words, baby!
You liked it?
I got it in BD when it came out! Young versions of the five principal actors! Sure it's nothing more than a B Sci Fi flick, but it works for me. Where is the "slasher" part of your description? To me it's all about Kiefer dealing with his past trauma (and a hidden undercurrent of Just Say No - See even Med students can't control drug use, etc). As Sev sez - my judgement is disturbed. ;)
And I just noticed your avatar. Nice. Is it new?
It just has that feel - like teenagers walking blindly into a situation that they obviously shouldn't, the loud thumps in the soundtrack meant to make it scary, the way the lines are delivered while panting for air, choice of actors,...and I usually don't care for Sci Fi anyway.
I changed my avatar at the same time I posted that photo that you objected to recently.
What was that?
Of course Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn shine in this George Cukor directed Comedy but I personally loved the performances by the supporting cast especially Lew Ayres as the constantly "half drunk" brother Ned and Edward Everett Horton as Professor Porter, I mean Potter ha.

Been meaning to watch this. Any impressions stick in your mind?
