A great , sharp looking and tense thriller .
I read somewhere that Nicole Kidman broke 2 ribs filming that one. She and Ewan McGregor both did their own singing.
Leo Dicaprio wanted to play Christian but he couldn't sing. Ozzy Osbourne's part is so small you barely notice it.
Kylie Minogue played the Green Fairy.
Superfly. The original Dude with a plan to stick it to the Man.
Blade Runner The Final Cut
Star Wars (Theatrical)
The Empire Strikes Back (Theatrical)
Return Of The Jedi (Theatrical)
A sort of Deliverance set in the grim, soggy, Scottish Highlands. Quite tense but too slow and .... meh. However, the individual performances are very good.
The Color Of Money
Another home run for Steve McQueen!
I really enjoyed this. I found it quite unsettling. This sort of thing actually gives me the chills rather than horror and jump scares.
Baby Driver--I was reluctant to watch this, but actually found it pretty entertaining.
Fort Massacre--1958, early western, but sort of interesting as well--the Calvary in Indian territory.
Guns of Diablo--another early western with Charles Bronson, and it had a young Kurt Russell in it as well.
A study in terror (1965). Sherlock Holmes hunts down Jack the ripper. Well made, good acting, looks great shot in rich technicolor.
Very good cast featuring some now familiar faces in early roles, Barbara Windsor, Judi Dench.
I picked up the made-for-TV "Jack The Ripper" with Michael Caine recently. I hadn't seen it since itwas broadcast in the 80s and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Not bad - better than you might think.
It's one of the few Holly Hunter films I enjoy.
Ready Player One
"Shoot First, Die Later" (1974)
A corrupt Italian cop is happy to look the other way when local mobsters are just smuggling booze and cigarettes into his city...but when they start running guns as well, he's in too deep to get out, which puts his father (a fellow police officer) and girlfriend in danger. A solid Eurocrime entry with lots of the usual gritty violence, car chases, fistfights and hackneyed tough-guy dialog. Fun, funky retro viewing.
I have a copy of it. VHS from the TV. Old school.
Young Picasso. Very good explanation of his first 25 years, lots of paintings shown, no re-enactments.
Glad I am not the only one with that problem. I guess I should just rent the Gere and take the chance.
yes, enjoyed it very much...Harry was real good...
