The Purge (a predictable piece of horse manure).
I AM THE PRETTY THING THAT LIVES IN THE HOUSE (2016)
A moody, slow, arty ghost story with Ruth Wilson and Paula Prentiss (!). While I can enjoy a slow pace, this one never seemed to find second gear or actually arrive at a destination.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle/
that keeps on stinking with each addition Purge movie...
Holmes & Watson
"hey is that Billy Zane?"
"where is the bar in this canoe?"
I Married a Witch (1942) starring Veronica Lake, on Criterion Blu-ray. Wonderful movie, great fun! And she was so beautiful...
Split - Thoroughly enjoyable!!
Saw Replicas today at the theatre starring Keanu Reeves.
Not a bad Sci-fi/Thriller movie about human cloning. Some of the same morality issues are brought up in this movie as in other similar movies and Frankenstein movies. If you are used to Keanu Reeves' acting, you will see nothing new here in that regards. His "Keanu Reeves School of Acting" is front and center in this one too. LOL
Definitely worth a matinee price if you are a fan of such Sci-fi/thrillers and if you can tolerate Keanu Reeves (personally, I like him and always have.)
In The Valley Of Elah - Superb - Very sad.
Watched Brian DePalma's Obsession today. Pretty good I would say. Great cinematography and good performances from Lithgow, Robertson and Bujold. An obvious homage to Vertigo but that's ok by me.
The Churchills (2017)
A Melissa McCarthy double feature: "The Happytime Murders" and "Life Of The Party"
Just got back from seeing “If Beale Street Could Talk”.
What a fantastic film. Don’t see it, if you are feeling vulnerable...
I'm tempted to double dip but I'm happy with the region free Arrow.
Split. Great performances and now I am caught up for Glass.
I Dream of Wires (2014) Documentary about the rise, fall and resurrection of the modular synthesiser. Best bit: one guy says if they had the modules they have now ten years ago he never would have left his bedroom.
I watched two this past night:
West Side Story - the 4th Natalie Wood movie I'd seen in 3 or 4 days, so a little hard believing her as a Puerto Rican (more than usual), but otherwise it's a great film. And a much better musical than the last one I saw (Gypsy, 1962).
And the last movie I saw was:
Sullivan's Travels (1941). I really liked this movie very much; I'd seen it ages ago but didn't remember too much, except some as it occurred, it was so long ago. I thought this a pretty great movie though the stuff I read online sure wants to change my mind.
I last watched DOA (1949) on VHS
Man Watches Film: The Big Short (2015)
'Colette' (2018) - watchable if unexceptional costume drama.
Really enjoyed this!!
What did I miss?
Haha...Take it you wasn't impressed?
