    Hatchet for the Honeymoon (1970) - I think director Mario Bava is the Italian Seijun Suzuki. He's often saddled with a so-so or even poor script and puts his personal touches to it, thereby elevating it.

    Jimmy B. An alien. I don't BS.

    It Always Rains On Sunday.

    well I have to see this again sometime
    The title is great, maybe the best I'd heard of since discovering The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter some 25 or so years ago in a Blockbuster video store.
    Anyway, British film noir. From 1947.
    Why on Earth would they use toy trains during a climactic scene, each with a little plastic man in each of them?!?? Bizarre! Then it cuts back to the real actors, and then back one more time, and then proceeds. One of the oddest things I've ever seen in a movie, ever. Weird as hell.

    Hellboy I & II (2004/2008)

    Guillermo del Toro is a master when it comes to well-made monster movies. Was shocked to realize that the first movie is friggin 17 years old...
    I wish they would make sort of a spinoff with the ectoplasmic Johann Krauss dude from the second movie.

    Richard Fleisher's The Boston Strangler

    Never seen this before. Damn good. It starts with a Dragnet like apporach but becomes a different film as Tony Curtis gets his teeth into in one of his best screen performances (Golden Globe nomination). Some great film editing, split-screen techniques and effects.

    I just watched and enjoyed News of the World
    I haven't seen the other movie you mention. But News of the World reminded me of True Grit (2010), also very good movie.

    Shambolicus It's 'cause I'm short, I know...

    Umpteenth viewing. One of those “always find something to marvel at” films for me.

    High Society(1956) - on TCM this morning. I really enjoyed the laid back Sinatra & wise cracking Crosby. The most beautiful woman in the world(at the time) doesn't hurt. But I expected Bob Hope to crash the party in the wedding scene...oh well.

    First time viewing, another blind buy, good noir.
    7/10

    I like Joan Fontaine in this also.
