amazingly cool Zombie movie...just fabulous.
That looks interesting. I'm a fan of German film.
I highly recommend it! much fun. : )
Jumanji: Next Level
I really enjoyed this
The sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep:
Abbott and Costello in Hollywood (1945), on-line @ TCM.com.
One of a handful of their films, that were not made at Universal Studio's.
Abbott and Costello in Hollywood - Wikipedia
Saturday Night Movie Night, Special Friday Edition, was Some Like It Hot with Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe.
I loved this too
The Quick & The Dead (1995): Sharon Stone kicks some *** while fighting toxic masculinity and avenging the death of her father. Also, it's about the meaninglessness of traditional Western tropes and values. A lot of people die for nothing, just because they thought they could prove something. Sharon Stone's protagonist has enough of that all, she reminded me a lot of Clint Eastwood's performance in "The Outlaw Josey Wales". Often silent, quick to draw, but at the same time she's an introvert character who ain't got no time for stupid smalltalk or useless questions.
Also, the cast of this is amazing. Fantastic movie, I loved it
Kiss of the Vampire (1962) - Arguably the best vampire film from Hammer and it doesn't have Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing or even Michael Ripper.
Nacho Libre & Best In Show
it's deep! and brutal, but strangely re-watchable...
Riot On 42nd Street
A horse/prisoner story that follows the normal Hollywood scripts until the end.
3/5. A good way to kill 90 minutes
Double Indemnity (1944)
"Double Indemnity has one of the most familiar noir themes: The hero is not a criminal, but a weak man who is tempted and succumbs. In this "double” story, the woman and man tempt one another; neither would have acted alone. Both are attracted not so much by the crime as by the thrill of committing it with the other person. Love and money are pretenses. The husband's death turns out to be their one-night stand." Double Indemnity movie review (1944) | Roger Ebert
Murder, My Sweet (1944) - A quintessential noir to me. Lots of hats, gats, dangerous dames, snappy dialogue and dark shadows.
The Shop Around The Corner
The American President
Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox...
Chilling feature film showing the horrors of sexual slavery and human trafficking within the US. Korean teen girl is kidnapped and winds up in pimping-prison...she has to survive.
The movie is very powerful by being restrained in what it shows; the unusual location used and the strong subject and performances make you feel uncomfortable indeed, as such a film should.
Well worth seeking out for serious viewing.
two Stanley Kubrick movies Barry Lyndon and Lolita. Both good movies. Actress in Lolita did not quite look 12. Obviously can never pick an actual 12 year old, but maybe one that looked younger. I think actress in 1997 remake looked closer to that age. But still good movie.
Barry Lyndon (1975)
Last night I watched Frankenhooker .
Five Easy Pieces. It's the first time in years I sat and watched it all the way through, really paying attention to the performances. It was very good.
