Does anyone know if this is available on dvd?
Link Posted: 7/7/2003 6:59:01 AM EDT
I have it on VHS,  I'd certainly like it on DVD.  It has everything.  Proper use of a Garand sling,  firing of rifle grenades, Matt Dillon with a Thompson screaming like a girl,

Classic black and White Scifi.

I'd really like to find the movies about the giant praying mantis and the critters from the great Salt Lake that kinda look like leeches with mandibles.

YES!! It is put out by Warner Brothers. My brother got me a copy for my last birthday so you might check Amazon.com.
This should be a part of any Sci-Fi collection, along with "Forbidden Planet" and "Quatermass and the pit" and "Day of the Triffids"
Anybody else want to make a recommendation? I'm sure there are a whole lot more.

... I recall as a young kid seeing this movie at a neighborhood friend's house without any adults knowing we watched it. I distinctly remember walking home that dark night terrified to death she would show up. Gave me nightmares until I reached puberty. Then I just kept hoping she would show up.

The one about the leeches with mandibles is called "The Creature who Challenged the Earth".  I rented it two weeks ago and was disappointed.
I like "Forbidden planet", though, and "The Day the Earth Stood Still"
Always have a soft spot for "Them".  I can remember watching it on Saturday Matinee Movie (on the tv).   I always loved that thompson scene.

I had a recurring nightmare about 'The Red Lady' when I was a kid.
A giant woman dressed in red.
She'd show up outside and I'd get pulled through the window up into the air into her hands, then I'd wake up terrified.

That's what this poster reminded me of.

Thanks!  Been looking for that  name for years.  The movie Scared the crap out of me when I was 9.

Context

Context

Context­

The Context in which the word 'them' was used in the incident in which certain people will not allow to die was a racial one.  As time goes by I no longer have any doubts of that.

The quote was:

"We...support you against 'them'."  In regard to a thread started by a person who used racial epitaths which he editted to slightly less offensive language.  So in the context of that phrasing it is quite clear that the person using 'them' was meaning 'blacks' or 'african-americans' or as the orginal thread said 'niggers', or after editting 'afros'.

If you want to use a 'word' why dont you simply use the word you MEAN.  Whatever that word is.  Instead of being a coward and attempting to hide what you mean behind a thin veil.

Going back to the pre-hijack thread, "Them" is a classic.  "The Thing from Another World" with James Arness as the monster will be released on DVD late this summer.  It's been out of print on VHS for sometime.  That's a true calssic.

SILENCE I TOO READ THE THREAD FROM THE BEGINING, AND THE "THEM" REFERED TO DID NOT HAVE TO BE RACIAL, JUST THE WAY YOU TOOK IT. I TOOK IT AS TO  ANY LOW LIFE, REGARDLESS OF COLOR WHO WOULD SCREW WITH HIM.

I JUST THINK YOU JUMPED THE GUN MYSELF.
AGAIN, COME TO SOUTHSIDE OF CHICAGO, TAKE A WALK WITH ME ON  63RD AND STONY ISLAND AND SEE WHAT YOU SEE.
AND IF A BUNCH OF BIKERS ATTACKED HIM, IT WOULD BE OK TO SAY "THEM"? GET OFF IT, YOU ARE BEATING A DEAD HORSE

The question is why have "YOU" got your panties in a wad because of what someone else says? Are "yuo" a moderator? NO. Is is "your" job to surf the boards pointing out peoples mistakes? NO

It is not for you to decide what context "they" were using when "they" said "them."

Someone else started this sh*t yes. But "you" just cant let it die. No wonder your #1 on the troll list in the team forums.

"Them" was an outstanding flick and a classic of classics.  The movie "Aracnaphopia" was made along the same lines and worth a look see as a rental.

Is it irony or coincidence that the same small group who are so vocal in denying their racist tones are the same small group who are so damn hot on Silence for his statements and position.

And for the record, they came first in this thread trolling, or did you miss that???

slayer, either you are with them or are as easily blinded by their bs as a Birmingham cop in '64.

Silence, you are pissing up a rope. They are using age old tactics. When you confront them on their positions, they will either 1) deny, 2) make counter accusations, 3) avoid the issue at hand or 4) threaten. BTW, threats are directly against the COC, and we have seen them directly threaten bodily harm and are still postin. IS ARFCOM OPENLY SUPPORTING THEM???


They will never have the balls nor convictions of their beliefs to directly counter and make an intelligent position statement. Like those of their ilk from days past, they still cower inside a hood....


BTW, They were right, them can be anybody.....

I agree Cavvet.

When Beekeep Shut down the 'Why is engergizer banned thread', and Campy said to let it be, I did so.

But 'THEM' people couldnt let it be and had to start stuff in another thread.  Yet I am the one labeled a 'troll'.  

And yet I look after Beer-slayer has asked for it to be dropped it has continued.

Is it is kinda interesting who gets what labels around here at times.

i take that as a personal insult from you.

My involvement in this entire matter has only been to keep the peace i have not agreed with either side here. The thread yesterday IMHO was a deliberate attack on another member.

I let it go until someone went over the edge. at that time the thread and the offending person were dealt with by staff.

Personally i could care less what your or anyone elses skin color is. A good person is a good person. Frankly i am tired of the EVERYONE ON HERE IS A RACIST stuff that has been spouted over the last few days.

If you trully beleive that then why are you here? Everyone has to deal with this issue on their own personal level. You are not going to change their minds by yelling RACIST on the internet.

I still wish i could have hooked up with you when i was in seatle. But then again since i am as "blind as a racist cop in birmingham" i guess we can't talk because i am a white guy.

Some of guys really need to lighten up. You must have some miserable lives if all you ever worry about is the color of your skin.

It wasnt meant as an insult, my observation. All the others in this bullshit were posting on early page one, rolling eyes and taunting, but Silence replies late on page 2 and is labeled by you atroll. I stand by my original observation.

You are right. I AND someone else quoted watsons direct threat of bodily harm to Silence, but I also see he is still here.

Funny you would say that, a few members have openly said they are tired of all the Black people are [BLANK] threads. I as welll am tired of the bs, and if you will deal, REALLY deal with the very few (1/2 dozen or so out of 30,000) instigators, this thing will go away.


If you trully beleive that then why are you here?


I am here because I love the ar15, RKBA & the USA. iS that not enough? Do I have to tolerate the bullshit? I dont think so.





Everyone has to deal with this issue on their own personal level.



Oh so true.

I dont yell anything. If they want to hide and hurl counteraccusations thats their perogative. I make points where I see them.

We were there.

How in the hell did it turn into one of those gay-assed "You're a racist/bigot" threads? (notice use of quotation marks)

"THEM" (Holy Shit, I used quotations again!) is a great film.
