    Underground (1928) Kino blu-ray 6.5/10
    Restored by BFI. This film comes highly regarded. It didn't do a lot for me, especially the first half, which I found uninvolving. Nor terrible, just not great imo.
    There's also no explanation that I could pick up on as to why one character wishes to destroy the power grid. The restoration is ok; not the mind blower the short documentary makes it out to be.

    yeah How to Steal a Million is a fun movie, I've seen it several times, and enjoyed it every time
    recently I revisited The Great Race (1965) with Natalie Wood, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Peter Falk, another fun 60's movie :)

    "Yesterday". Saw it last night before my HBO trial expired. It's expired now. First time I had seen the movie. Better than expected.

    The Whole Town's Talking!
    From 1935.
    I really liked this, though found it best when it was just "Jones",
    Edward G. as a meek little man, I love it - and Jean Arthur! I love Jean Arthur.
    Was surprised when this changed (overall the effects were good, except one scene where you can tell Jones is walking past a film!)

    Great ending to this movie.
    I liked this a good deal. Edward G. Robinson is great - I like him a lot more when NOT playing the gangster - he has more versatility, he taps into emotions so well.
    Only gripe if I had one, would be not enough Jean Arthur!

    Hud (1963) Paul Newman

    I liked this one. It's a family drama about a family in the cattle business. This has to be one of Paul Newman's most unlikable characters (and he's great in the role).

    Gattaca--a rewatch. I enjoyed it better the second time around. A pretty good SF, but sort of slow burn. I enjoyed it, and it's worth a watch, but at the same time--and I can't quite put my finger on it, I'm sort of indifferent on it as well. Second tier SF for me.

    Dial M for Murder--Hitchcock, sort of like a play, but a husband tried to figure out how to murder his unfaithful wife.

    Rebecca starts the show tonight.
    Hitchcock directs another masterpiece
    Regarding Olivier. It's hard to believe that Slueth isn't out on bluray. And it's even harder to believe that Olivier didn't win an Oscar for his remarkable performance in Slueth.
    As for Rebecca. It's perfect

    Stage Fright (1950) - Lesser Alfred Hitchcock starring Marlene Dietrich but Alastair Sim steals every scene he's in.

    "Rambo: Last Blood" (2019)
    A leathery-looking Stallone returns as Rambo for the fifth (and final?) go-round. Now living the quiet life on an Arizona farm, Johnny heads South of the Border when his adoptive niece/daughter (the relationship isn't made terribly clear) is kidnapped by a gang of Mexican human-traffickers. You can probably figure out the rest.
    Not a bad butt kicker but the film's relatively small scale doesn't really feel like a "Rambo" movie, if that makes any sense. It's a generic ultra-violent revenge thriller that could have starred anybody.

    Next up is Strangers on a train
    I tend to binge watch my favourite Cary Grant films (around 10) and I do the same with Hitchcock faves every couple of months.
    Some movies are so good they just have to be watched time after time after time don't they
