    Short Circuit.
    One of the best 1980's family films of all time.

    I saw the movie Bang The Drum Slowly for the first time. Wow.
    A real tearjerker, excellent movie.
    I'd seen the 1956 TV version with Paul Newman a couple years ago (the excellent Golden Age of Television 3 DVD set), but don't remember much except the basic premise.
    Anyway this was great
    takes a lot outta ya

    And DeNiro was excellent!

    Yeah - that was a pretty disappointing documentary. I have the DVD anyway. I mean it's The Stooges, so...

    It was over-influenced by The Filth and the Fury. Once Julian Temple had made a film where every word was illustrated by some old movie or advertisement all other directors should have backed off.

    I'm going through the 1001 Films You Should See Before You Die ....

    Pickup on South St (1953) Wild anti-Communist film from Samual Fuller.

    The Great Train Robbery (1903) The bit I remember is (according to the advertising that came when the film was originally shown) the shot of of the guy facing the camera and shooting his gun could be shown either at the start or the end of the film for maximum impact.

    The American President. A real palate cleanser.

  16. It didn't seem that dark in the cinema I was at - maybe the manager where you saw it was cheaping out on the projection by using lower-wattage bulbs?

    Saw this one on Netflix. A Liam Neeson-movie without Liam Neeson!

    You Were Never Really Here (2017) - Joaquin Phoenix as a vet with PTSD killer for hire. Phoenix was good as usuual but the story had to many plot holes IMO. Didn't live up to the hype.

    But, does the girl in the poster even come close to looking like Carrie Fisher?

    Haha. Well, a likeness of Carrie Fisher was enough at that point in her career - and the Star Wars franchise to sell the film. Other than being the daughter of Debbie Reynolds who knew who she was? And speaking of likenesses - I waited for what seemed like eons before I could get my hands on any action figure which looked remotely like the Alec Guinness version of Obe Wan Kenobe. Then after, what, almost four decades - long after his death - Guinness' estate finally gave permission to use his image for mass production. Finally, I had a miniature "original likeness" of Obe Wan in my hands! I put it back on the shelf. It wasn't special any more.

    Just finished watching "John Wick" & "John Wick 2". They were OK but not great. Recommenede for Keanu Reeves
