    Charade (1963). Good fun film. About halfway through I realised that Audrey Hepburn reminded me of someone I used to work with.

    84 Charing Cross Road - on TCM tonight. The first time I saw this, I didn't really like the Anne Bancroft character and thought her contrary side-ie. 'miserable bitch' was played up as a foil for Frank(Hopkins). After this viewing I realised I was mistaken, and the contrariness was exaggerated(by yrs truly). I loved the Donne quote-"You have to read Donne aloud" and the bittersweet ending(comparable to Francesca opening the box Robert's lawyer sent her in 'Bridges Of Madison County').

    "Nemesis" (1992)
    Set in a cyber-punk 2027 where cyborgs and humans live side by side, a former L.A. cop is called back to active duty in order to recover a microchip that will stop machines from replacing humans altogether... or something like that.
    This low budget mashup of "Terminator" and "Blade Runner" has some impressive stunt work and pyrotechnics, but the story doesn't make a lick of sense. It certainly doesn't help that its leading man (French martial artist Olivier Gruner)'s accent is more impenetrable than Jean Claude Van Damme's. By the halfway point I stopped worrying about the plot and just watched stuff explode.
    Followed by numerous sequels, which I will be sure to avoid.

    There few people in this world that can make eating ice cream look elegant, charming, and graceful. Audrey Hepburn is one of those people. Love this movie.

    Agreed, although the elegance rating went down a couple of notches a few moments after that shot...

    Metropolis. The plot doesn't make any sense
    That film was released in Australia as 'Twinkle Twinkle Killer Kane'

    Jane Birkin - Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'En Vais (Concert Intégral Au Casino De Paris) (1992) Jane and her six piece band perform lots of Serge Gainsbourg songs (many for the first time) and deep cuts from her many albums. Not as amazing as her previous live album but worth hearing because of the daring set list. When she encores with the title song the audience literally goes insane.

    If you mean the reconstructed Fritz Lang classic, I have to disagree strongly on that.

    It makes sense from the point of view of the scientist who invented the man/machine but the logic behind the creator of Metropolis going along with his idea just doesn't gel. I mean the only reason the workers weren't staging a full scale revolution from the first minute of the film was Maria so replacing her with a robot wasn't the smartest idea. The best bit is how the worker the son replaced gets corrupted in the space of a taxi ride.

    I guess I was so blown away by the amazing filming techniques for 1920 (& Brigette Helm) that I didn't get too picky. That film is 100 years old!

    Visually it's a total classic. There's still a huge section missing where Maria escapes.

    Didn't know that. Guess we get to buy yet another restoration in a few years when the footage turns up..............
