Cop starring James Woods
Another documentary of sorts-"It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles:Sgt. Pepper & Beyond"
Watched the feature and the extras disc.
Superman 4K BR
Mean Streets 1973
Blu-ray Review: Mean Streets
Walter Hill's 'Southern Comfort' featuring an assortment of idiotic National Guardsman lost in the Bayou and contending with pissed off Cajuns. Powers Booth glowers convincingly, Keith Carradine looks vaguely annoyed throughout, some evocative cinematography, dialogue so cliched that I wonder if its meant as a parody, and much redundancy. The last 15 minutes are kind of intense though. Before that I watched the much better "Long Riders", one of the better James -Younger movies imo.
Hill is overrated imo, but at the least his movies are watchable and enjoyable on some superficial level. I hope he doesn't think they are profound.
Toy Story 4 4K UHD enjoyed it.
The Blue Knight starring William Holden BR
Gimme Shelter on BR [tomorrow's the 50th anniversary of Altamont]
Mike Wallace Is Here (2019) documentary
Decent movie- geared for a younger audience- but good popcorn flick for the home theater. I think some of the character changes are questionable-almost laughable. A leave your brain at the door movie for sure. Picture was good- Atmos soundtrack was decent. But LFE was kinda lame. My dual Monolith subs were hardly working.
Until The End of the World (1991; new blu ray edition from germany): Wim Wenders' 5-hour long, chaotic, beautiful philosophical road movie about the year 1999. It was next to impossible finding the DVD, so I bought a digital version on Google Play last year. Now, finally, the movie has arrived in a new restoration on blu ray and it looks absolutely breathtaking. It's out on Tuesday in the U.S. (courtesy of The Criterion Collection), and all I can tell you is that if you're interested in the movie, this is the version to get. You're in for a real treat.
