    Like a long shaggy dog story with an unsatisfying ending. Lost attention several times :(

  5. A movie that I saw once before and really liked a lot (had given it an 8 on IMDB, have the DVD-R in my Amazon wishlist),
    and this time after a while just bored me.

    Ida Lupino and Joan Leslie in The Hard Way as sisters, with Ida the older one of course (she was maybe 24, Joan 17?)
    and Ida acting as "stage mother" for Joan's character to succeed etc ah I've wasted enough time on it.
    I watched it while it was still showing on TCM On Demand.......
    Very disappointed this time around.
    A soapy melodrama regardless. Acting is fine, it's....one of the worst movies to watch I could have picked now
    Esp. when one character - the former vaudeville partner of a man, one that Joan married in this, who killed himself over her, says over his grave after his suicide "He was the kind of guy who should have lived in a big house, had ten kids to eat Thanksgiving dinner in." - that depressed the hell out of me.

    Il Bidone (1955) - Broderick Crawford and Richard Basehart as directed by Federico Fellini. I think this may be the Fellini movie with the saddest ending.

    Die Sünderin (= The Sinner) (1951): Excellent melodrama starring the legendary Hildegard Knef in the role of a woman who sold her body for money early on before meeting the love of her life, an alcoholic painter on the verge of losing his eyesight for good. Told in multiple layers of flashback and some extremely bold shots, the film's themes of suicidal tendencies, prostitution and german life immediately after the war made this a highly controversial film in its day. A tremendous achievement that feels strikingly modern.

    Revenge of the Shogun Women (1977) on 3-D blu-ray

    Well, I dunno if I'd call it good, but it was a good enough time. They start off throwing things at you and it doesn't let up from there. In the opening, a group of bandits are raiding a small village and raping the women. The surviving women are placed in a Buddhist monastery where they are trained to be nuns who can also happen to kick ass. When another village is being raided, they go to the monastery for shelter. The lead nun is torn between her duty to protect them and her duty to be nonviolent. Eventually, asses must be kicked as no peaceful resolution presents itself.

    This disc was done by the 3-D Film Archive, who always do topnotch work. This must have been there roughest element, however, as the original photography appears to have plenty of issues baked in. That said, the cinematographer composes well for 3-D in some shots and the film probably would have looked better if they had just had a better lens system. Also available on the disc in 2-D and anaglyph 3-D (red & blue glasses).

    I also took in the first installment of Peter Jackson's Let It Be, which I quite enjoyed. I think a compact single upbeat film would probably be best for the general public, but as a hardcore Beatles nerd, I enjoyed it. Yes, I was even excited to see them do Commonwealth, having heard it on a bootleg LP for years. :D

    Tick, Tick….Boom! (2021)

    I loved it. Lin-Manuel Miranda did a great job in his directing debut, and the music by Jonathan Larson was fantastic. And who knew Andrew Garfield could sing?

    Spectre. Daniel Craig is being hailed as the best Bond but it's all based on two films (Casino Royale and Skyfall). Quantum of Solace has a plot that no-one can follow and Spectre is Bond by numbers. (Of course the new one's probably great but I haven't seen it yet so my argument still holds water)
