    I liked it, it's very good. You might like it.
    Lancaster is excellent in it (as he seemingly always is), and Yvonne DeCarlo is something else.

    Edit: the top rated/most helpful review on IMDB for it calls it "one of the pinncales of film noir" (deleting link though because I saw now it gives tons of spoilers without warning)

    The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946).
    Excellent!
    I've seen this once before but liked it much, much more this second time. My first time now on Blu-ray but that wasn't the difference. I'm not sure what was.
    Great film.

    Gigi (1958): Aaah, that was hilarious! Loved the song about champagne :D and the entire film is just so damn funny. Awesome musical movie!

    An American In Paris (1951): Wow, the dancing is amazing, yet the ending is so bad. Totally forced in my book.

    Oh, I think it's really great looking!
    Let me see what Blu-ray.com says...
    hmm well the main reviewer doesn't think it's great, but one of the two user reviewers loves it.
    The Postman Always Rings Twice Blu-ray
    (contains tons of spoilers for anybody who hasn't seen it)
    DVDBeaver's a bit more positive about it:
    (November 2012): The new 1080P image looks good - maybe a shade cropped but previous damage is gone. Solid contrast on the dual-layered transfer. No noise and plenty of pleasing grain. Detail tightens. It will probably never look much better for your Home theater enjoyment. Ditto for the mono sound in lossless with plenty of DUB and subtitle options signifying it to be region FREE.

    Okay so I planned on another film noir classic last night for tonight,
    but instead felt in the mood to watch for the first time...
    LASSIE COME HOME!!!!
    Oh man I LOVED this film!!!!!!

    With Roddy McDowell and Elizabeth Taylor.
    Also Elsa Lanchester as Joe's (Roddy's) mother (*sigh*! So beautiful back then)
    A very heartwarming film, for me.

    (saw it on TCM On Demand, it's there for another 3 days I think)

    Superb Russian film, Spacewalker (2017).
    The story of Alexei Leonov's pioneering space-walk.
    Leonov died earlier today.

    Luc Besson's ANNA. A sort of Nikita flick. Quite good.

    He only does that kind of movie these days. But each and every one still gets my butt to the movie theater.

    Musicals Great Musicals: The Arthur Freed Unit At MGM (1996): So I borrowed out the american 2-disc special edition of "Singin' In The Rain" (you know, the early one in that nice digipack, from 2002 I think) outta curiosity. Know and love the main feature, but wanted to check on the bonus material as finding the german version of this release is a real PITA these days. Anyway: this doc is on disc 2, and it centers on Freed's MGM productions and what a genius man he was. My personal favorite was Judy Garland's screen test for The Wizard Of Oz and that "Broadway Melody" outtake where she starts singing and then goes "hey, can I start again? You're making me nervous" - just endearing :love: sadly, this doc missed on some Freed productions I'd have loved to see mentioned, such as the often overlooked "Till The Clouds Roll By" and the tremendous 1951 film adaption of "Show Boat". Overall, it's still an interesting documentary but it could've been more in my opinion. Good to see and hear so many legendary figures of Hollywood history, though: Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly, Mickey Rooney, Vincente Minnelli, etc.

    Barton Fink (1991): I'll have to watch this one again, I'm sure there's a rich symbolism in this film. But damn, this is a funny movie. Darkly hilarious. LOVED John Goodman in here, Steve Buscemi, aaaah - everyone in this film was perfectly cast in my book.

    The Lost Boys has dated very badly. I already had some problems with it's comic book ethos, so I doubt I'll revisit it. I do think it was a great idea that could have kicked major butt if done right. Maybe a much darker remake is in order?
