I like "7 Faces of Dr. Lao."

Awesome movie.
I am surprised that Tony Randall <sp> didn't get an academy award for his portrayal of all the different characters he played.
Fun movie Smile.

While the Tony Randall was good in the movie he was not even nominated. He was contending with Richard Burton and Peter O’ Toole both in “Becket” and against Anthony Quinn in “Zorba the Greek”, Peter Sellers in “Dr. Strangelove, or how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb”, and against the winner Rex Harrison, for his role in “My Fair Lady”.

I liked the 7 Faces movie and know that it has obtained “cult” status now but honestly; I enjoyed all of the other movies more and felt the actors nominated did Academy level acting.

I agree with you Harry as far as "Academy level" goes. But very often I don't agree with the Academy but then again, I only know what I like and judge accordingly to what I think is good or great acting.
All of the movies you mentioned are great movies and I think the Dr. Strangelove movie has also reached "cult" status.

I just dug out my videotape of “The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao” and spent a nice lunch hour watching it. Man, I am glad that it was mentioned here. I forgot I had it in my old dusty box of movies I love! For it’s day, the special effects were great! George Pal and Ray Harryhausen (Jason in the Argonauts – ‘63) were my hero’s in the day!

I have to agree with the original post here that the 2003 P.J. Hogan version of the Peter Pan story is brilliant. Many scenes have a Maxwell Parrish look. The kids playing the various roles were well cast and did great work. The movie was indeed dark, funny, sexy, intelligent, and a bit scary; just like the original novel. For now, I believe that this is THE definitive Peter Pan. Yes it is in my collection of DVD’s!

I have to agree that I often don’t agree with how members of the academy vote.

Harry...where you been? Been trying to call you.

Anyway...for my choice there is none other than the Disney Peter Pan. It was my only TRUE magical experience!

It was my birthday and my Mom had given me a few bucks for the candy counter...I bought the Peter Pan hat with the feather! Well in going back to the balcony seats I felt I was actually Flying up those stairs!

Living in NYC, I didn't dare make it part of my regular wardrobe, so I was not able to fly on a regular basis. Smile

But I see those hats at Disneyland and just smile.

The Disney movie is still my favorite of all Diz movies hands down.

Of course since I build Mermaids..."Little Mermaid" is a close second. Smile

The new Peter Pan flick is really brilliant. Casting Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook/Mr Darling is a real bullseye. And I love Tink. Visually stunning film in all. In my opinion, it really captures the essence of the book.

Now many reviews commented on Jeremy Sumpter´s Pan as a misfit-him being all american in a british cast. I think that was a brilliant move to cast an american as Pan-he´s been away for so long, estranged from his real life that the americana flavor actually supports the character, making him clearly different from all others.
