I’m Thinking of Ending Things (2020)
Dir: Charlie Kaufman
...and it’ll probably need to be watched a few more times again.
Soylent Green (1973). Charlton Heston. With Edward G. Robinson in his final film. (he should have gotten second billing on this Blu-ray cover)
This movie is about today, about now.
When we were kings - I love Muhammad Ali, one soulful and funny guy
When We Were Kings - Wikipedia
A recent cinema visit was the new version of Berlin Alexanderplatz, a total masterpiece which still haunts for some time after.
"Sleepaway Camp" (1983) - yet another killer running amok at a summer camp full of horny, foul mouthed teens. For most of its run time, this feels like a generic store-brand Friday the 13th, but the infamous twist ending is one of the great "what the f***?" moments in horror history.
"No. 1 of the Secret Service" (1977) - An inept British agent tries to solve a series of murders in a cheap, corny, hopelessly unfunny spoof of the James Bond series. AVOID.
Yes, that ending is a real WTF moment!
Bad Words (2014) and A League Of Their Own (1992)
Is it good?
Other than the cannibalism, I agree. Also agree that it's a tremendous film.
"The Bounty Man" with Clint Walker
All in all, I found it enjoyable.
I haven’t seen the book at all prior to the film.
Nothing earth shatteringly new for me.. but yes
it was well worth the $6.99 DVR rental fee. He
certainly took some fine photos, and under Ringo’s training also shot some fine video footage.
Didn't Robinson also make a brief appearance in Milis Forman's "Ragtime" a few years later?
Citizen Kane (1941): Well, what good would it be to list everything that astounded me while watching the film? It's an amazing achievement, pure and simple, extremely intelligent, witty, poignant and also a take on the art form cinema itself.
But consider this: if Salzburg, my hometown, ever came close to something like a "cinema event of the year" during COVID... it wasn't "Tenet", that's for sure. It probably wasn't even the screening of "The Blues Brothers" which I had raved about in July. No, of all the screenings I attended this year, it was tonight's "Citizen Kane" which produced the most enthusiastic and passionate crowd. Every available seat was booked. And everyone, no matter if they'd seen the film before or not, was captured and thrilled by what was on the screen. And it was a magnificent experience. I'm so happy I had the chance to have my very first "Citizen Kane" watch straight away on the big screen, just as intended.
busy work week, but watched "Into The Woods" which was online tonight.
Mulholland Drive (2001)
Reality Bites (1994)
No, that was James Cagney. This was Robinson's last movie.
One of the most emotionally powerful movies I've ever seen.
Loneliness? This tops Taxi Driver in that department for me.
Trauma, the PTSD of someone who had to endure the Holocaust....
This is a painful movie. It's outstanding. Steiger should have won the Academy Award for his portrayal as Sol Nazerman.
It's about the greatest acting I've seen in my life. Probably is.
Tommy Boy (1995)
