    Now its gaslight. This features one of the great acting performances from IB. Wasn't she brilliant?
    Gaslight is way ahead of its time. IB quite rightly won her first Oscar.
    It's always a joy to watch Joseph Cotton at work and as for Charles Boyer. He's a perfect villain.
    PQ of the bluray is truly excellent with a beautiful crystal clear print.
    Is there a better psychological slow burn thriller than this?

    The Room (2003) by Tommy Wiseau. Well, that was something. How to even describe it really? Definitely quite funny at times.

    The Harder They Come from 1972.

    I love the soundtrack; I didn't like the movie.
    This was my third time ever seeing it; I had forgotten about the special ending to it.
    Anyway I didn't like it much at all, except for the early parts with Cliff as "Ivan" wanting to make a record.

    And soon the darkness on bluray. It arrived yesterday. PQ is one of the finest bluray I have seen. Its got absolutely beautiful French summer countryside
    This bluray may not be out in the USA.
    It's a really good film.

    Jack Reacher.

    I thought it was a cross between all the bad dialog from The Pelican Brief and all the intersting camera shows from Michael Clayton.

    I enjoyed it.

    Next is interstellar on 4k blu-ray
    I just love the way Nolan creates a fantasy universe in his movies and them makes it believable. Few directors have ever had that ability.
    This movie is fantastic in every way.

    I watched Poltergeist 2 and 3 yesterday.

    I remember the original being on all the time in the mid 80's when we first got what was then called pay tv. So I'd seen it but I'm not sure it was ever in one sitting. It scared me so I'm not sure I even watched it all. But I did see it about a year ago and it's a really solid film.

    These two sequels? You never expect the sequels of a horror franchise to have much left to say but this is an extreme example. These two movies just have.....nothing. They are easy watches because they are only 90 minutes each but with nothing to offer there's not even any fun like what can be found in a Friday the 13th or Halloween sequel.

    And in both films the endings are just quick and easy resolutions. It's almost like they realized they'd filmed enough to achieve their running time so let's just wrap this up as quickly as possible.

    Even though it was cliché I did enjoy the warm presence of Will Samson in the second film. And I was shocked at the quality of the acting on display by Heather O'Rourke in the third film. The first time she exchanged dialogue with another actor I almost literally stood to attention. She was as passable as any child actor in the first two films but here you could tell she had more acting talent that most child actors or adult actors for that matter.

    Warlock

    Henry Fonda
    Richard Widmark
    A Quinn

    western with similarities to Mitchum’s Man with a Gun.

    widmark has top billing but Fonda steals every scene he’s in. Those cold blue eyes will get even colder in Once Upon A Time in the West

    there’s even a Star Trek future actor in it

    High Sierra Bogies break out picture.

    ida Lupina is in it and she’s great. She was also in They Drive byNight also with Bogart playing second to George Raft.

    Drive by Night a great road picture with lots of truck driving scenes and a few ugly crack ups.

    Alan Hale Sr is in it. His boy would later be cast as skipper of US Minnow. Stunning resemblance of father-son.

    hale is great! Ida is his wife who put the crease in his trousers but he ain’t comfortable wearing ‘em. More comfortable with his old pals.

    no more said for those who haven’t seen it. Don’t read sny more about any of these films. Too many reviewers confuse critique with plot recitation

    Laura (1944).
    Not bad, not great. Incredibly overrated in my opinion,
    though I believe I really liked it the first time I saw it.
    This was my third time in the past couple years;
    it loses something (the surprises) after the first viewing.
    Still, it's not bad.
    Will try and see this again some time when my mind is not so distracted, as it is right now, these days.

    I think I should maybe give The Harder They Come another chance sometime as well (could have done without the violent scenes though, esp. one).
