We're enjoying it! next will be Gettysburg...
The Shape Of Water....on UHD-BD.... I liked it. It's way better than The Creature From The Black Lagoon.
Heist gone wrong.
Gone With The Wind
It was a double feature for me last night. Valerian looked and sounded spectacularly good on UHD-BD. I liked it. Then, it was I Tonya....which was mildly entertaining and could have been called Hit The One You're With.....
Peter Yates' "Murphy's War" with Peter O'Toole going one on one against a Nazi sub on literally the last day of WWII in coastal Venezuala. If that synopsis sounds intriguing to you, well it could have been an interesting movie. But whereas Yates previous film 'Bullit' was a model of tautness, this one is remarkably slack. The big finale between a river dreger (which as you might imgine is not the speediest or most kinetic machine ever put on film) and the sub is shot and edited in real time. zzzzzzz Someone probably could have tightened up the movie and done everyone a favor.
Little Nicky no matter what they say love this movie due to Rodney! NO BD...too bad.
I liked it!
this one never gets old...I had a close friend who was mad for this movie...he even did a book on the film. Scarlet Fever by William Pratt...spent many a evening discussing everything GWTW...if you ever come across this buy it! it's fabulous...Amazon has it used and new.
Recent release from Kino Lorber of one of the very few Korean kaiju movies.
Jeepers Creepers 3
Happy ending for a change.
yes, it is nice...isn't it!
The Thomas Crown Affair with McQueen & Dunaway, I like the later version better with Pierce Brosnan
I've seen that book. 20 years ago I went with my family to Folsom, Louisiana for the 90th birthday party for my dad's favorite uncle. We rented a little furnished house that belonged to Harry Connick's aunt for a week. It was loaded with old books including that one. I got a 24 hour virus the second day we were there. That swampy air is full of contagions! I stayed at the house for a day till I felt better and had a good time looking at books that included many from the first half of the 20th century.
that's pretty cool...did you like the book?
I watched HBO's John Adams mini-series over the past week. The finished the last two chapters this morning.
Yeah, I was a bit tempted to take it with me when we left. There were several other interesting books that I had a go with. There was a book from the very early 20th century about the Monitor and the C.S.A. Virginia's (Merrimack) battle that is also stuck in my memory. I don't need my own copy of Scarlet Fever. I have much too much stuff as it is. I enjoyed it while I was there.
a really nice memory there sans the virus...
Death Wish I & II.
are there any movies out there that continue on where Gettysburg ended...like the next 2 years until the end of the war?
