    I liked this and Amy Adams is fantastic in it - a very different kind of role for her. I'm not saying it's a great film, and it's messages about "the culture divide" are cringey at times. I still recommend it, especially for Adams fans

    One of the scariest movies I ever saw in a theatre when it first came out. I've lost count on how many times I've watched it.

    This last weekend I finally got around to watching something that has been on my watch list since I was college in the late 80s.

    7/10 - very powerful ending; middle of the film was somewhat slow, but enjoyed the atmosphere and was still interested in it while watching.

    No remarkable insights here, but it would seem the recent movie Midsommar was heavily influenced by this one!

    Still my favorite noir and in my top 10 movies of all time.. not many films seem to top this one for me. A true timeless classic that I enjoy the more I watch it. There is so much great dialogue to dissect and interplay going on with the characters.

    AGREE.
    I also want to cite whoever that actor was that played Amy's husband. Absolutely convincing as the immature ignorant brother swimming in raw hate

    Mothers & Daughters (2016) 5/10

    Big Lots blind buy due to the all star cast (Christina Ricci, Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Courtney Cox, Mia Sorvino, etc).
    Some good ideas & great actresses, but the script is really hard to follow. Felt very scattered.

    Asphalt Jungle (1950)

    "A naturalistic film noir crime film classic (resembling numerous B-films) of the early 1950s from A-list director John Huston. The realistic, documentary-like, urban crime/heist film - advertised as "A John Huston Production" - was one of the first films that completely and specifically detailed how to pull off an authentic-looking heist - something usually considered morally improper under the Production Code. The sparse, gritty and tense film with a linear narrative is often considered the definitive heist or caper film, often copied and paid homage to by later films.." The Asphalt Jungle (1950)

    BroJB Hey man, is that FREEDOM ROCK?

    Sterling Hayden was great playing unhinged characters. He had a real edge to him.

    Fascinating guy too. From Wikipedia:

    As OSS agent John Hamilton, his World War II service included sailing with supplies from Italy to Yugoslav partisans and parachuting into fascist Croatia. Hayden, who also participated in the Naples–Foggia campaign and established air crew rescue teams in enemy-occupied territory, became a first lieutenant on September 13, 1944, and a captain on February 14, 1945.

    He received the Silver Star for gallantry in action in the Balkans and Mediterranean (according to his citation, "Lt. Hamilton displayed great courage in making hazardous sea voyages in enemy-infested waters and reconnaissance through enemy-held areas"), a Bronze Arrowhead device for parachuting behind enemy lines, and a commendation from Yugoslavia's Josip Broz Tito. He left active duty on December 24, 1945.[16] Tito awarded him the Order of Merit.

    Watched this new one last night on Netflix. Clever, smart and its director/star is fantastic. I really enjoyed it:
