    Young Adult with the director's commentary. Didn't learn that much except they cut out lots of drinking because the director didn't want the character's weirdness dismissed as alcoholism and all the incidental music in shopping centres was muzak versions of grunge classics.

    Last night I watched The Wrong Man again on Blu-ray (Henry Fonda and the great Vera Miles).

    Tonight I watched King Creole on DVD for the first time in many years.

    Really a great film. Truly fine acting by Elvis; incredible presence just watching him up there...
    a pretty dark film too.

    I thought it was quite a fascinating film. Part of it was the telling of a true story, and partly the execution of the film making. There isn’t a definitive narrative to the film, which I think seems to be an issue for some people. It’s really just a three sided perspective of the events surrounding the event.

    I saw it awhile back at home. I remember somewhat enjoying it, but beyond that I don't remember a thing about it (not sure what that means!)

    A Summer Place (1959), starring Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue.
    I thought it was great.

    Jan & I thoroughly enjoyed the film ‘Last Christmas’ (based on the old Wham! hit). Bit obvious, but a nice non-demanding Xmas rom-com.
    The ‘new’/never-released George Michael song at the end is a bit rubbish. Disappointing, but it’s the only thing about the film that is.
    It's sweet. As it's made by Brits they don't clog the film with touristy London shots. It's not rushed. Well paced. Some giggles. No sign of fake-bloody-snow, just wet drizzly streets. Music's great, naturally, and you come out of the cinema with that warm fuzzy Xmas feeling. We'll see it again.

    New 4K scan looks incredible. Steelbook packaging. I waited so long for this to come out. Love it.
    One of two rock and roll Shout! Factory Blu-rays released today. Was glad Amazon shipped them yesterday not today as originally stated.

    I've been trying to make it through "The Night Holds Terror" #5 in Parker blu box #2 & I'm still only 13 minutes through. The bad guys are just too evil for me. I'll give it another try or 2, but I may skip this one, as much as I hate doing that with something I bought. Fpr what it's worth, IMBD gives it a 6.2 of 10.

    Is that a new release? I've never heard of it before... Looks like it'd be worth finding...

    Not really a movie, but the last thing I watched on DVD was "The Rolling Stone-Rock and Roll Circus"...

    It's a four DVD set from 2004. The first disc is a documentary about the world tour, and the other discs are an arena show, a stadium show and a theatre show from that tour.

    Christmas movies have sunk to a new low for me.

    Over the last week I watched a couple Melissa Joan Hart Christmas movies. I mean these were bad, like Melissa called up some unemployed or retired friends and asked them to show up for a weekend to make a movie for a quick buck. Stories and sub-plots were scattered and poorly written and felt like like the actors were handed a script the night before shooting. Hallmark Christmas movies come across as well acted major productions in comparison. The only redeeming thing for me was in satisfying a "Where are they now" curiosity. Sadly I watched them right through anyway.

    I never knew this existed... I've seen (and liked) the original "Supersize Me" so this looks like it'd almost be a must-see...

    I liked it. The original was good too, but I'd say the 2nd one was better. The first was based on a "no ****" premise, replace McDonald's with Jack Daniel's and you see what I mean. The 2nd one was just as fun to watch but the premise was far more interesting.
