Woody Allen's Stardust Memories.
To Old to Die Young--is a series on Amazon, which has pretty mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it. Granted Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Neon Demon) isn't for everybody--even I have problems or question some of his techniques, pacing, motivations, etc., however, I find him more interesting than not. To Old to Die is a cop, detective, crime series that involves a cop that gets involved with a black gang and Mexican cartel in the first episode--the first episode is pretty slowly paced, so you have to have patience. The second episode takes place in Mexico with the cartel, and the third shifts back to LA. It's a weird series, that is also punctuated by violence, artsy cinematography, and soundtrack, sometimes is used to convey tension, which works pretty well. All in all I got sucked in by it. I haven't finished it yet.
Castle Freak via The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder.
I liked this. A straight, non-comedic horror film from the director of Re-Animator, Stuart Gordon. Also with Re-Animator's Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton.
Aimee Mann Live
I call it a movie!
such a pretty lady...tragic.: (
a wonderful Marilyn movie! I loved this as a youngster...
No, I saw it on tv. I forget which channel had it on, I hadn't watched it in 30 years. Still good to me.
I have it on DVD as I have the DVD box sets released years ago...
I watched Pan's Labyrinth for the second time. I read the book version by Cornelia Funke last month.
I have the DVD I heard the BD was terrible...didn't they do this on Criterion BD? I haven't checked...
I didn't even know it was a book. Love the movie, it's brilliant.
To my eyes, it's not terrible. It has more noise / grain reduction than a European blu-ray that came out at the same time, but it was no Patton / The Predator in that regard. It does have a Criterion release as well, which I assume would look better.
thanks...Pan's Labyrinth Blu-ray
Stand by Me in 35MM tonight at the Gateway.
A favorite from my adolescent years in the mid 80s. Impossible to watch without just staring at River Phoenix with bittersweet sorrow.
Such a terrific film.
Rust Creek. Low budget showtime flick which was good.
X-Men- Dark Phoenix
Madea's Witness Protection
The Man With The Iron Heart - Very good. Amazing street scenes.
Le Dernier Combat - Luc Besson's first feature film about survival in a post-apocalyptic world. Enjoyed it.
+ all three Austin Powers movies (love 'em).
Wow, another movie about the killing of Heidrich. Did you watch Anthropoid a couple or three years ago? It was the same subject, pretty good.
Elevator to the Gallows
Deep Water Horizon
Yes, also good!
