    Pain and Glory (2019) - Wonderful film, notable for all the exceptionally vivid colors in the sets and clothes. This is an Almodovar film without even a touch of weirdness.

    The Public Enemy (1931). Wow. I've never seen a more realistic movie from that era.

    Great film! Pretty much all the Cagney & Robinson pre code Gangster films are really well done.

    Bedazzled (1967). With Dudley Moore and Peter Cook.

    Saw it last night for the first time in years; have never even owned the DVD.

    Okay at times, some good laughs early on, then it gets kinda boring and loses its humor, though the pop star scene (Drimble Wege and the Vegatations?) is great.
    Fair overall, uneven comedy.

    SINATRA -- ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL -- Netflix is showing this 4 hour BBC miniseries, great vintage footage, interviews, must see if you're at all into Sinatra.

    'Big Night' (1996) on Netflix. A gem of a film.

    Good grief, it's awful.

    Then again, Graffiti Bridge (1990) is not really a movie -- it's a series of music videos, strung together with some ridiculously hammy and nonsensical drama about Prince and an angel with a feather (who is a hottie, naturally).

    The only good thing I can about it is that it's probably better than the excruciating Under The Cherry Moon (1986).

    State Fair (1945) starring Jeanne Crain.
    In this movie, the most beautiful woman in any movie I've ever seen.
    Perfect escapism, fine musical, innocent, cornball fun. From the Rodgers and Hammerstein Collection Blu-ray set.
    Reviews weren't hot on the PQ but it's excellent! A good step up from the HD stream, with a little grain but not much. Perfect!
    Also stars Dana Andrews, Dick Haymes, Vivian Blaine, Charles Winneger and Fay Bainter. Percy Kilbride has a small part. Harry Morgan a real small part.

    One of my favourite bad movies. Just truly bat****.
    Gotta disagree about Cherry Moon tho. It’s not great either, it could have been better if hubris did not intervene, but I think it has a certain charm.

    Agree regarding Graffiti; it's awful. I like Cherry Moon.

    The Great McGinty (1940) - Preston Sturges' first directorial effort. Great performance by Brian Donlevy and the usual gang of Sturges soon-to-be regulars. It's story still seems very contemporary considering what we see in the news.

    I love it!
    Made me feel really good each time I've watched it.
    I think it might be mine too.
    it deserves its own Blu-ray release
