    See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989). I rewatched most of Pryor/Wilder collaborations the past month (Silver Streak, Stir Crazy, etc), and for some reason, this one I enjoyed the most. It is very silly though, as expected.

    The third and final installment in Tomm Moore's "Irish Folklore Trilogy" (the other two being The Secret of Kells from 2009 and 2014’s Song of the Sea), it’s the best animated feature film I’ve seen in a while. The animation design and art direction are really wonderful and unique.

    Tiger Bay (1959).
    Absolutely ASTONISHING movie.

    Last night I was lost as what to watch after the moving Johnny Belinda, so I chose The Trouble With Angels, which I'd been reminded of 'cause Ida Lupino directed it, they listed it on Blu-ray.com under her profile. Well it was okay, had a couple laughs, but not this moving picture I hoped for, not great to me (some love it, nothing wrong with that).
    Well I saw this for rent on Amazon Prime, which despite the photo on there showing it as Criterion, there's sadly no Criterion release of this on Blu-ray, or DVD.
    I found on IMDB that this and one other early movie, which I've never seen, Whistle Down The Wind (released only on DVD in the UK), were not exactly "cute Disney fare."

    This movie is a crime drama starring a 12 year old who sees a murder take place and what unfolds. That's all I'll say.
    Along with that the following heading of a review on IMDB I agree with: "Unforgettable. Worth any effort needed to see it."
    A twelve-year-old tomboy witnesses the murder of a woman by her Polish merchant marine boyfriend, but bonds with him and thwarts the police in their investigation.
    Well that synopsis doesn't quite say everything.
    Jesus, I found two masterpieces in two nights in a row.
    That's RARE.

    Oh, and it IS on the Criterion channel, I searched desperately for some information if this was to be released, and found nothing - like Of Mice and Men, they're keeping it for their channel I guess.
    Tiger Bay - The Criterion Channel

    Fantastic movie. Incredible!

    It's on you tube also but I didn't want the British accent to at times make me miss any of the dialogue without captioning.
    And the HD picture quality on Prime, through Criterion's Janus Films, was just *perfect*.
    God this should be available on Blu-ray.

    I haven't seen Tiger Bay, but I have seen Whistle Down The Wind and I can say it's definitely worth a watch. Very nice film! :righton:

    Under normal circumstances, this would be a big hit in the theater.

    Quirky romantic comedy drama, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Zooey Deschanel. Perfect casting, nice story, soundtrack & performances; not a pat ending.

    The Badlanders--western, pretty good.

    The Sheepman--western Glen Ford, early Shirley MacLaine, pretty good too.

    The Chills: The Triumph and Tragedy of Martin Phillipps. (on Kanopy) The Chills were the most likely New Zealand band to break into the big time. But songwriter/guitarist Martin Phillipps was a perfectionist who never gave anyone else any credit (he, sort, of denies this). Now he lives alone in the suburbs in a house filled with books, DVDs (there's literally a mile of DVDs snaking around the house waiting to be watched), CDs, cassettes and toys. I think the viewer is supposed to be disgusted with this but I though it was an amazing lifestyle that more people should live. The film gives a potted history of the band and follows his through his treatment for Hep C.

    James Bond - On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969): My favorite Bond movie. I forgot how hard this hits emotionally at times, very unusual for this franchise. Lazenby was the perfect man to portray a James Bond who always seems just slightly out of place and not really at peace with himself, his dangerous job and his life in general. It's almost as if he was disillusioned about everything. Feels very strange for a Bond movie, but to me it remains the most rewarding entry in the franchise.
