    I watched Wonder Woman, the motion picture, last night. I watched it on UHD-BD. The video and Atmos audio were spectacular. I thought it was getting a bit long-winded and was wishing it would hurry up and end. When the ending came, it was more clever than I anticipated. So, I liked it, mildly.

    Last night was a treat. I viewed Young Doctors In Love for the first time seen I saw it in the cinema back in the early 80's. This was on the new BD.

    Watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it was good but I liked the first one better.

    Gravity (2003, Alfonso CuarĂ³n)
    This, obviously, is one to have on Blu-Ray though the picture quality on the DVD is stunning. In fact, the graphics outshine the script, acting and effective but rather unremarkable soundtrack. The graphics are such a central part of the story that you could cut the sound (after an initial viewing), supply your own soundtrack and derive just as much pleasure and satisfaction. The details of Sandra Bullock's personal life are insignificant compared to the problem of the immediate situation that she must find a way to redress. Essentially, after losing her colleagues to the fallout of an accident, she must either use her ingenuity (and training) to return to earth with very little resources or end up as space debree. It's the movie's main story and ultimate strength. A classic thriller.

    Lost Horizon(1937) my first time seeing this, enjoyed it. I like most of Capra's films.

    Paper Moon (1973, Peter Bigdanovich)
    Black and white depression-era throwback featuring a (real) father and daughter relationship. It's beautifully photographed with very good performances from Ryan and Tatum O'Neil and the supporting cast. The style in which it was shot makes it a classic, however. One of Bogdanovich's best. The special edition back story makes it a keeper - until an HD edition is released.

    What an incredible movie.
    At a loss for words now.
    I'll just say that the speech by the mother is one of the greatest emotional moments of any movie I've ever seen.

    This movie is a masterpiece.

    Indeed. Great play. Which speech from Lena were you referring to? She has a few showstoppers. Classic film. But I actually prefer the smaller, made for TV - American Playhouse production starring the late Esther Rolle (Good Times) and Danny Glover:

    Raisin in the Sun (1989, Bill Duke)
    There is more of the original play in this version as well.

    Watched Dr. Strangelove last night. It's been years since I had seen it last. Gotta love early Kubrick

    Oh I've never seen this one. I'll have to check it out sometime. The speech about when to love somebody the most. You know which one now!

    Saturday, Sunday, Monday (1978, Alan Bridges)
    Wonderful made for TV movie based on a play by Eduardo de Filippo. It's one of several from the British produced box set of filmed plays; Laurence Olivier Presents. It's an amusing comedy/drama involving an eccentric Italian family where the matriarch, who plans a grand Sunday meal, finds her marriage in shambles by Monday morning. There aren't many copies around. Fortunately, some kind soul has it streaming. Recommended.
