    Jimmy B. I like music; I worship no musicians.

    A pretty worthless movie called "I'll Wait For You."
    From 1941, with Marsha Hunt in it, hence I watched. She was in the film noir Raw Deal, and a couple Margaret O'Brien movies - Music For Millions (w/Jimmy Durante and Marie Wilson) and Lost Angel.
    So some jerk-face pretty-boy gangster called "Lucky" :hurlleft: winds up on the lam and stays on a farm and falls for (oh boy :rolleyes:) the Farmer's Daughter, played by Hunt. The father of her and her younger sister, is played by the guy who played the "angel who will help whatshisface in It's A Wonderful Life if he gets his wings." He was also the father of some young thing Bogart liked in High Sierra, among other films.
    A pretty miserable excuse for a movie - pure fluff. It doesn't rate anything really. Worth avoiding, even at 71 minutes.

    Maybe fluff movies like the first one I watched aren't so bad....
    At least it made sense...
    sort of.

    Kiss Me Deadly.
    Beautifully filmed film noir for a new age, that is very difficult to follow...
    My second viewing only so far....I think.
    Not a typical noir by any means, nor a very linear movie, not for everybody. I liked it very much the first time I saw it...

    The angel from Its A Wonderful Life, aka Henry Travers, also played the employer of The Invisible Man in the 1933 classic. Speaking of which, there's a film I need to dust off and play real soon. The lead character is so deliciously off his rocker.

    Heavenly Creatures (directed by Peter Jackson, 1994). Juliet and Pauline find friendship and a fantasy world of their own. Anyone who gets in their way will be dealt with. They were never going to go to heaven, anyway.

    The film, set in 1950s New Zealand, sublimates and subverts the period drama look in imaginative ways. It is based on real events, this clearly not being a limiting factor. Young actors Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey play their parts brilliantly.

    Quite unlike anything else I've seen.

    Malignant - the new James Wan thriller. I’ve seen several negative reviews of the film but I thought it was pretty good!

    What a weird, awful movie this is. Tom Hardy looks like a rejected make-up test for Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood. The script is even worse. Capone himself has about one page of dialogue throughout the 104 minutes of mind-blowing stupid footage. He spends the rest of the time staring dementedly at his servants, relatives, or henchmen with no semblance of meaningful plot to move the sh!t-b!x along. How do screenplays like this get approved to be made??

    The wonderfully horrible Manos: The Hands Of Fate. I found myself laughing at the mere fact that the first several minutes of the film is the doofus father (and director) driving around desert roads. Riveting stuff. And then of course you have that lovable scamp Torgo. Oh, Torgo. The Master will not be pleased.

    I know they cleaned this up and put it on blu ray, but honestly that's better treatment than this film deserves. I have a nice, faded copy with horrible sound and that feels like the appropriate way to view this nonsense film. Still, I love it so much.

    Nice picture, DTS-X sound. Finally, a disc that gives my audio system a workout. I hope to see more DTS-X releases in the future.

    YES, the same screaming lady in Bride of Frankenstein that irritated me so much in my last viewing. She's almost as bad as the vulture in White Zombie. Almost.

    Ha ha ha ha! :laugh:
    Yeah, I've seen her in one or two other movies!
    Bride Of Frankenstein, is my favorite horror film, I believe.

    Una O'Connor. She had quite the distinction scream. I remember her from the Errol Flynn 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' as Maid Marion's servant; and 'The Invisible Man', 'Bride of Frankenstein' and 'Witness For the Prosecution' as the 'hard of hearing' housekeeper .
