Another Peter Sellers vintage classic. Two Way Stretch. Not nearly as good as I'm Alright Jack
I watched a double feature on BD this afternoon. Beau Geste (1939) looked stellar other than a few film scratches in the first 15 minutes. Talk Radio is the most irritating movie that I can remember seeing. It should be used as a torture device. I can't believe I watched the whole thing. It was hard! Oliver Stone made this mess in his younger days.
I watched the first 5 episodes of season 3 of Boston Legal last night on DVD.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Stone. Near the end the movie is just a bit confusing since scenes are out of order but Robert DeNiro does a really good acting job. And Milla Jovovich shows 'em (the only part of her I recognized... they did a thorough make-up job on her face so she looks like someone else).
and evil movie...yea, Bobby played the usual...
my wife and I loved this show! we still miss it. : )
I've been meaning to get these DVD sets out for the past year. Now that there's not many new shows about....it was time to bring it back. I don't latch on to many TV shows but this one cranked my tractor. You should quit missing it!
yea, we should..." )
"7 Days in Entebbe" - Jose Padilha's version of the Israeli Raid on Entebbe Airport to free hijacked passengers. I guess the distinction between this and other movies of the incident (which i haven't seen) is its focused on internal politics of Yitzak Rabin and Shimon Peres, and the terrorists themselves, which somewhat 'humanizes' them, though are still rather blockheaded dullards who seem to be trying to fill a void in their life by commitment to terrorist ideals. Which of course they justify with lots of intellectualized malarkey. still the narrative is rather streamlined, Padilha composeses with wide angle lenses better than anyone since Frankenheimer and has a restrained but urgent style. The final raid is fleeting, almost an afterthought and matter of fact, and for all I know perhaps more realistic about how it occured. so, not so much an 'exciting' action movie, but a thoughtful that challenges viewers a bit
Does this count as a movie
Im watching Clapton and winwood live at MSG bluray
It's the first time I've watched a bluray gig with audio going thromy new dac
This is one of the finest bluray gigs I've seen.
PQ is stunning. SQ is stunning
Performance is even better
I was fortunate to see them at Wembley arena and they were out of this world
I watched these two over the past few nights. 'Saboteur' is along the lines of Hitch's '39 Steps' and 'North By Northwest,' but not quite as memorable. Still a great ride, and it features an incredible climactic scene atop the Statue of Liberty.
'Tobor the Great' is a sci-fi B feature from 1954 that is rather light on plot, but wholly enjoyable, and I loved Tobor the robot. I would have been right at home as a kid in the 50s spending my afternoons at the local movie house watching sci-fi and Western double features. Excellent presentation from Kino Lorber on this one; better treatment than a movie of its caliber probably deserves, honestly.
Last night I watched 6 episodes of season 3 of Boston Legal on DVD. This morning I watched Before The Devil Knows You're Dead on BD. It's a good movie but it's all a bit depressing.
Saboteur is super. I watched it the other night. Great choice
Tonight I start with the heroes of telemark.a fine ww2 yarn with kirk in an unusual role for him.
It's got a stellar cast into the bargain
My Man Godfrey. A screwball classic that is growing on me.
I watched a double feature last night on BD. Bucket List was pleasant enough. My brother wanted to see 10,000 B.C. What a terrible movie. Although, I sort of get a kick out of the giant Terror Birds segment. That's the only thing I like about it. My brother fell asleep and hardly saw more than the first 20 minutes. If he puts it on again, I will not be in the room.
