Suburbicon on Netflix. Too unfunny for a comedy, too fragmented be be suspenseful.
Even though I enjoyed watching it, I wouldn't recommend it any further. The plot(holes) and the ending are ludicrous.
Office Space--pretty good comedy
Bill Evans/ Time Remembered--doc on the pianist, Bill Evans. Worthwhile.
A Tale of Two Sisters (2003) - Creepy Korean movie from director Jee-woon Kim who also did The Good the Bad the Weird and I Saw the Devil. Three worth checking out, especially if you like Asian movies.
Just watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind at the local library. Hadn't seen it since it was in theaters. It started me yawning...
A Tale of Two Sisters (2003)
excellent movie...they made a terrible remake in the US called the Uninvited!
I liked it as it tie the characters origins together...wasn't perfect but serviceable.
Woodstock Special on PBS...I guess one would call it a movie. ; )
Why Horror? on Shudder. A documentary that looks at why folks like scary movies. Interesting.
Rocketman. I was entertained.
People Are Strange. This is better than the main feature it came with.
The Set-Up (This is such a great movie!!!) / The Avengers: Endgame (It
was very well done &I enjoyed it a lot. Both very Highly Recommended.
I watched a couple of shows on netflix last night, neither were movies.
Ellen - Relatable.
I've always thought she was good at comedy, seeing her standup show was no exception.
She has the goods.
Bruce Springsteen - On Broadway.
Love this guy. I love his story and his personality actually more than a lot of his music.
He is so gracious and humble, it's hard NOT to like the guy.
I watched 2001 a few nights ago for the first time in a few years. Whatta movie. It was so ahead of its time visually that is seems impossible.
I didn't think the US remake was terrible. I would say it's fair. But it basically had none of the mysteriousness, subtlety and atmosphere of the original - this happens a lot with remakes, as if an American audience is so dumb they can't tolerate anything that you don't hit them over the head with.
I’m still on a high from “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” two weeks ago.
I've made an effort to avoid that.
I think I stumbled on it by accident and without knowing it had anything to do with "Tale." It was kind of ok, but no reason to waste two hours on something like this when there are tons of good alternatives out there.
Blinded by the light, living within 20 miles of where this story is set we absolutely loved this, cracking soundtrack to boot
yes, better off indeed.
It's nearly all terrible period...
Wake in Fright on Shudder. A film from 1971 in Australia that was nearly lost. A teacher on holiday gets stranded in a tiny dysfunctional town populated primarily by alcoholic sociopaths looking for a good time. He gets pulled in and can’t seem to escape. Well shot and acted (the lead is good and I like Donald Pleasence in most things), I think I’m still processing it.
FYI, THIS FILM CONTAINS FOOTAGE OF A REAL KANGAROO HUNT (not shot expressly for the film) EDITED WITH EFFECTS SHOTS AND THE ACTORS. It is not pleasant. I think the upshot of the film is “anti” this type of thing, but it shows it and doesn’t blink. Just so you know.
Inherit The Wind on Blu-ray.
I've lost count how many times I've seen it. Love it.
I watched Avengers: Endgame on a plane. The flight was delayed due to weather and we were stuck on the tarmac for 3 hours. The entertainment system was accessible thank goodness and this movie made the suffering painless.
