    Fighting with My Family
    Not as good as I wanted it to be. I'm pretty tolerant about formulas in films. I go for the ride, not the analysis. Unfortunately, the movie telegraphed every plot point then took too long getting there and the points were a little too simplistic for my liking. It was as if they were recycling all those early 2000s British impoverished family films. But the family they showed was lovely and fun. A very British film with lots of familial affection and gentle humour.

    Smokey and the Bandit for like the 30th time.
    No formula here because this film built the formula - establish the main character, find a love interest, get to the chasing bit and just go - trust that stuff will happen along the way. The version I saw on tv looked really good. Very clean. And Sally Fields is cute and hot.

    Welcome to the Dollhouse--bittersweet drama, comedy, or dramedey about a young girl in the 7th grade, growing up in suburban New Jersey. Pretty well done.

    Immortal Beloved--biopic about the mighty Beethoven. He was a bit of a bastard at least shown in this movie.

    The Way Back. Best movie I’ve seen this year. Ben Affleck as an alcoholic high school basketball coach. Definitely worth the $0.99 movie of the week price on ITunes.

    Star Wars: episode 1, The Phantom Menace. Not as bad as everyone says it is. Jar Jar Binks is no more annoying than the blue guys in Avatar. Add the star power and references to the other films and it's a pretty cool two hours.

    I still like it too.
    Even 'Jar Jar' doesn't bother me, and enjoy it overall.
    What bothers me is the CGI.
    It even looked bad even when it was new.....

    Stranded on Earth
    You Were Never Lovelier (1942).
    Nice film.
    Beautiful Rita and the incredible dancing of Astaire (and she's great with him too).

    Stranded on Earth
    Gilda (1946) on Blu-ray.
    More incredible for me than the last times I'd seen it (it had been near a couple of years).

    Stranded on Earth
    and lastly for tonight
    I saw
    The Lost Weekend.
    I thought this was for the first time in around 15 years,
    but actually, I only remembered/was familiar with some of the opening scenes.
    I don't think I'd ever seen this all the way through before. (I'm not sure)
    This was the most powerful of the movies I saw this past night.
    An incredible achievement, the acting by Ray Milland SO great........
    Funny, I'd been putting off seeing this one, for so long......

    The Future Is Unwritten by Julien Temple.
    I love Temple's documentary style and I love Joe and The Clash, so it's a winner.
