    I watched Another Earth, an indie science fiction-themed film, on Netflix. Having picked it at random, I was very much surprised positively. The premise - an alternative reality opens up and with it a chance to make up for past mistakes - is, I want to say, farfetched but the thing is, the story and the presentation lived up to it.

    I'd put Eastwood's Grand Torino up there too in terms of emotional whallop. At least I enjoyed as much as Million Dollar Baby (which I thought was great).

    hmm.. well I see it is based on a graphic novel which was based on a web series. Is it uber-violent?

    Danced with Wolves extended edition. Wish I just went with the theatrical cut as the extended had a lot of pointless scenes. For example there is a 3 minute around scene of the indians talking in their language, without subtitles iirc.

    The Stoning Of Soraya M - Totally gut wrenching. Unbelievable film making. Something about the film reminds me of The Pasion Of The Christ. Based on a true story. Crazy that this sort Of thing still happens in the 21st century in some of these backwards countries. Highly recommended but not for the faint of heart.

    Yeah, it really is. It's one of my favorite movies of all time, but I have to be in the right mood for it.

    I started a ‘Tarantino series’ in the lead up to the release of ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’, starting at the beginning, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ last night. Brilliant movie and one of the best from the 90’s.

    Yeap. The first watch was painful. This time more appreciative. A lot going on in this film
    that some wont understand. Amazing film and gut wrenching for sure.

    I watched this film today and cannot recommend it highly enough. I stumbled onto it trying to find out more about Clay Pigeon, whose radio show I listen to on WFMU most mornings on the way to work.

    How can I describe this film? It is a snapshot of NYC, filmed 10 years ago, but aside from the then-upcoming Obama-McCain election, could have been filmed today. Anyone who loves NYC, but is sad to see how it is changing, will love this. I wish it was longer than 56 minutes! I don’t know if it’s streaming on Netflix, but it streams for free with Amazon Prime

    'If Beale Street Could Talk' (2018) - I'm not sure the non-linear narrative completely worked but beautifully shot and good work from the leads.

    On a Peter Falk bender....
    The Cheap Detective.
    A dry humour comedy film. You could imagine Peter being a Marx Brothers fan
    after watching this.
