    Saturday Night Movie Night with my wonderful wife:
    Operation Petticoat (1959). Cary Grant and Tony Curtis
    A submarine newly commissioned is damaged in the opening days of WW II. A captain, looking for a command insists he can get it to a dockyard and captain it. Going slowly to this site, they find a stranded group of Army nurses and must take them aboard. How bad can it get? Trying to get a primer coat on the sub, they have to mix white and red in order to have enough. When forced to flee the dock during an air attack, they find themselves with the world's only Pink submarine, still with 5 women in the tight quarters of a submarine.

    Harikiri--Criterion release about a samurai begging a court owner to allow him to commit suicide, but really wanting a handout of money. I've been trying to go outside my normal Hollywood viewing, but some of these Criterion releases test my endurance at times. They can be pretty slow unfolding. Worth a watch, but I don't see myself revisiting it anytime soon.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp--fast action and actually pretty fun, great line from Stan Lee.

    In Search of Darkness (2019) on Shudder

    Documentary with a lot of talking heads reminiscing about horror films of the 1980. At times about a particular subject such as final girls, heroes, villains, even 3-D, but mostly quick takes about the big films from 1980-1989 on a year to year basis. It’s long, but the kind of thing you can watch easily over 2-3 nights. Entertaining if that’s your bag, baby.

    Old VHS copy. Beautifully animated, moving but also quite funny at times. I'm still fascinated.

    Shambolicus It's 'cause I'm short, I know...

    Vivarium (2020), a rather dreary and metaphor-heavy sci-fi/horror number starring Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots. Currently on Amazon Prime. I’d generously give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

    It is a good film with a good soundtrack but it would have been better with a Scot playing Wallace. Mel Gibson had a good go but his Scottish accent wasn't perfect. It's not totally historically correct either.

    Beat the Devil (1953)

    Fantastic film from John Huston, starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida and others in a fine ensemble cast. Shady doings in a quaint Italian villa, as various shady characters meet and intertwine as they hope to head towards Africa and strike it rich. That things don't go quite to plan would seem inevitable. Very funny dialog (from Truman Capote and the actors, as Huston essentially did away with the draft of the script they had been given) and eccentric characters. An excellent looking Twilight Time blu-ray as well, it's a shame that they have gone under.

    It's no Apocalypse Now but it was a decent fun way to pass 90 minutes. 7/10

    Where is my brain this morning? I have Beat The Devil. I read a totally different title first time I looked. Weird. Possibly the unique cover art?
