Rogue 1, better than Ep 7 imo
Gary Ross' Seabiscuit
La La Land. The first ten minutes I was squirming in my seat, then, halfway through the party scene I started to love it. The last scene is so brilliant (but worthless without the rest of the film) it deserved the Oscar just for those ten minutes.
'Duel' (1971) on Laserdisc. Pure cinema.
The Trouble With Harry
Fate Of The Furious.
Another fun and over-the-top movie in the series. If you are a fan of the movie series, you should like this one too.
Hidden Figures. Good movie well told. Great set of actors.
Ghost In The Shell
Mr. Deeds Goes To Town. 1936 (and not colorized like the DVD case)
I binge watched season one of The Crown.
It's like Jesus Christ Superstar. Every one in the UK and the colonies (like me) knows the story back to front but this series reimagines it without changing the 'facts'. Most brilliant bit: The Coronation is shown entirely from the point of view of the exiled Edward VIII watching it on TV from France. At the start he's making sarcastic comments and calling everyone by insulting nick names he and Mrs Simpson have concocted. By the end he's completely overwhelmed by the pageantry and tradition. Must see TV.
^^i watched a few weeks ago a enjoyed it.
"75th Anniversary" cinema screening of 'Casablanca'
'1900' (1976) on the big screen. Yep, all 5 hours 20 minutes of it, from 35mm. Not a great film but a one-off experience for sure!
"Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind"
A Blu-Ray collection of Live-Action & Animated Shorts
(9 in total) from around 2003.
I saw the version with Paris Hilton in the lead role: The Shawskank Redemption.
Death Wish (1974)
In the '70s, New York City was experiencing a rash of violent crime, and it was thought that vigilante-style justice would be effective. This film was a success in theatres, and spawned 4 sequels.
Overall, it's a great movie. Bronson is in his element here, while the other actors play their roles very well. It's violent, but compared to today's action movies it's pretty tame.
Logan. A really violent remake of Paper Moon (1973).
Separate names with a comma.
