Le Samourai. Very cool 60s french noir about a hitman
Dog Eat Dog-About three very pathetic criminals.
Arrival-I liked this movie.
In a somewhat unrelated random thought,
A good comedy would be if a musician was sent to meet and communicate with visiting aliens.Each sent as a delegate representing humans.There would be a different segment for each:Keith Richards,Frank Sinatra,Lou Reed,Jim Morrison,David Lee Roth,Lars Ulrich.In other words prelude to an intergalactic apocalypse .
Manchester By The Sea--pretty decent drama, though somewhat melancholy. Good performances though.
"Guardians Of The Galaxy" (2014)
A wise-ass space pirate and a crew of misfits must prevent a powerful artifact from falling into the hands of a very bad intergalactic villain. This fast, funny sci-fi shoot'em up from Marvel Studios has held up well to repeated viewings. Bring on "Volume 2" (this Summer)!
Bleak but I enjoyed it very much. 5/5
Second time seeing this. Recommended.
"Logan" today. I cried.
"Terminal Force" (1989)
Cheap cops & robbers nonsense from schlock kingpin Fred Olen Ray. A trigger-happy detective (50s/60s B-movie beefcake Richard Harrison, aging terribly) is taken off of suspension to track down a kidnapped girl whose brother is about to testify against the Mob. Yep, that's the whole plot. The flick is slow moving, talky and has very little action; Harrison sleepwalks through the entire movie. At least there were some cute girls in it, and since this is a Fred Olen Ray movie, that means they're required to get their boobs out frequently.
I'm enjoying your reviews. Looking up Terminal Force also turned up a Brigitte Nielsen actioner. Might be an interesting follow up view.
Crocodile Dundee 1 & 2
John Woo's The Killer & Hard Boiled
Chow Yun Fat Night
Like them both a lot - been years since I saw either one, I think it's time for revisit.
Let's Be Cops
Ha! Yeah, I believe this Brigitte Nielsen/Richard Moll flick is also known as Galaxis ... it turns up on YouTube occasionally but I haven't seen it yet. I guess I should check it out; how could it NOT be a winner with a cast like that?
No kidding! Bull and Red Sonya...IN SPACE!
Personal Property (1937) by W.S. Van Dyke with Robert Taylor and Jean Harlow. Great underrated comedy.
The Grateful Dead Movie
The Book of Kells--a little darker than the Song of the Sea, but still a wonderfully colorful animated story full of rich deep hues, impressionistic backgrounds, and non Disney animation. Highly recommended
Screened Passengers (2016) tonight. Genuinely terrible Hollywood bleh! That said, the image quality end-to-end is special. I'll likely pick up the UHD once my projection system is upgraded. Should be worth suffering through.
T2: Trainspotting (2017) - clunky in parts but a worthy sequel
