    My last movie was Out Of The Past from 1947 starring Robert Mitchum and Jane Greer.
    Saw it night before last.
    Mitchum was cool as could be and Jane Greer was so beautiful it was startling, surprising.
    Some dialogue was really great, some lines were. The movie was promising, and its reputation didn't hurt.
    But for me after a while it got way too convoluted and became really hard to follow, confusing, and ultimately disappointing.
    I want to see this again sometime though. I've also since read reviews where others found it this way and some grew to like it or love it, so...

    Last night I watched the John Wayne classic, "The Cowboys."
    I had forgotten how good it was.

    The Cowboys (1972)

    I saw "The Lion King" earlier today and loved it. I found the film to be visually stunning. It also has some very good performances in it.

    "The Spy Who Dumped Me" (2018)
    Mila Kunis is an L.A. slacker chick who discovers that her late ex-boyfriend was a spy, which soon makes her the target of some very bad people. When she and her wacky best bud (SNL's Kate McKinnon) head to Europe to complete his final mission, mayhem follows wherever they go.
    This spy spoof was lots of fun -- the two leading ladies make a great team (Mila's hot, Kate is hilarious) and it doesn't skimp on the ultra-violent action either. Worth checking out.

    This Gun For Hire. Rented this in SD On Demand. From 1942. This one reviewer on Amazon of Out Of The Past who gave that 4 of 5 stars listed eleven film noir movies he considered the best, and I had seen five of them (own four).
    This was among the other six; not bad, not great, I guess what I've been viewing lately I need to view a second time later.

    A masterpiece.
    I wouldn't have minded if it ended about 5 minutes earlier, but even the way it did,
    it totally worked.
    Just absolutely INCREDIBLE.
    So glad I found about this movie.
    Amazing.

    It took me forever to finally get down and watch it, but now I can totally understand why it is considered the Academy Awards level experience.

    'The Mule'

    I hadn't seen Eastwood in anything for awhile, and it was a shock to see how much he'd aged (not a complete surprise given he's 89). His advancing years has had little impact on his abilities or screen presence. Although he pulled off the dithering old man when needed, he could also snarl and stare down when required.

    Based on a NYT story about a 90yo drug mule, Eastwood is perfectly cast, and his direction is first rate.

    David Fincher's Gone Girl on Netflix starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike from a few years ago. Although I usually don't like long films (2 1/2 hours!) I found this one absoluteley captivating from start to finish.

    Warren Beatty writes, directs and acts as Howard Hughes. Good movie, stunning cast.
