    Heaven Can Wait (1943) - Ernst Lubitsch's first color movie. Features Laird Cregar as Satan and the funniest domestic squabble between spouses Marjorie Main and Eugene Pallette. Always a pleasure to see Clarence Muse acting with dignity.

    Over the last 6 days or so I have watched... Scarface (Pacino), Twelve Angry Men, Goodfellas, Alien, The Empire Strikes Back and Winchester 73 (a great old western).

    CRAZY RICH ASIANS

    I'm sure I'm one of the last people in America to see this movie. Based on what I'd been told about it, I was sure it was going to be shallow, Hollywoody, and over the top; and while it was Hollywoody and overdone, it wasn't shallow, had a solid and involving storyline, and was much more fun that I thought it would be. I loved Awkwifina's tv show and her performance in the fine film The Farewell (reviewed above), so hearing that she was in this was what finally got me to watch it. Very nicely done, and a pleasant surprise.

    I haven't seen it either. I don't watch many current films. A few, but not many.

    The enforcer arrived from America today
    So I'm watching now. This isn't the Clint version but the Bogart movie about murder Inc.
    This is a most underrated film. I have been after it for quite a while. Amazon UK are actually selling a bootleg version on a bdr.
    Im surprised there haven't been more movies made about murder Inc. It's a great story. Sadly its all too true

    I watched "The Kid Stays in the Picture" lat night. I really liked it, very unique documentary with the subject narrating his own story. I didn't know a whole lot about Robert Evans before watching it, only that he had been a producer (Chinatown, Urban Cowboy). I didn't know he had been an actor when young, ran Paramount, nor even that he had been married to Ali MacGraw.

    Next up is the big combo. A mighty fine noir. Just about the last great noir
    It's a brutal film with Cornel Wild on top form yet again. When wasn't he on top form?
    Hopefully I've got time for a third film tonight. Here comes Mr Jordan is pencilled in.

    Castaway - it was as good and as weak as what I've read. I can't say I would ever watch it again. There just isn't a reason. It is an interesting view of the prototypical Tom Hanks character - they just do one thing, then they do another and another and there isn't much view of the character's introspection. All we see is gritty determination and anger.
