    Ready Player One - kind of a oddball for Speilberg (A movie about videogames and Multiplayer VR)
    but - what a great test of my new-to-me JBL B460 subwoofah! ;)

    Both Sweet Country and Tommys Honour are good in their different ways. Tommy's Honour is very Scottish, as the subject matter demands. Sean Connery's son Jason directed it. Sweet Country has violence and the panoramic rugged, rugged Aussie desert landscapes. One is based on historical record. The other is fiction not far removed from the mood of the times.

    I didn't realise until I watched both movies that Sam Neill was in both movies.

    "Performance" (1970) Mick Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, James Fox

    British crime drama, in which gangster Chas (Fox) goes on the run after doing an unauthorized hit. He ends up at a rooming house run by burned-out rock star Turner (Jagger), who only rents to bohemian types. Turner lives an open sexual relationship with two beautiful women, and also cultivates psilocybin `shrooms in his garden, and feeds them to his tenants.
    After dosing Chas with the drug, they perform a "transformation" ritual for him.
    This is quite a bizarre (and intriguing) little film, with a slammin` soundtrack....

    That is not Keith Richards but Ry Cooder on slide. Cooder was on Sister Morphine as well.

    Yeah, I was aware of that since the film was first released. The reason for that was because during production of the film, Mick had a little side action going with Anita Pallenberg, who was Keith`s main squeeze at the time. To Mick, it was just a casual fling, but Keith took it far more seriously....

    And here I'd long thought it was Mick Taylor, a well-regarded (and rightfully so) slide geetarist in his own right.

    I'll have to assume our @KeninDC was already aware of this Cooder business @ Sticky Fingers?

    Yes, as noted above, Cooder played the slide on "Memo from Turner" and performed that amazing slide lesson in open G tuning on "Sister Morphine." Also heavily reverbed on "Morphine" was Jack Nitzsche on piano. Makes the song.

    Cooder's slide bores into the left side of your brain. Great cut.

    Didn't care for it because it was chock-full of cliche´s and only had a couple of funny scenes. I've seen that same movie so many times over the years and the only difference were the actors.

    I'd say more but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who plans on seeing it.

    I find nothing more boring than crazy rich people of any colour.

    Saw this last night - date night with 'her indoors'.

    Agreed that it is a decent whodunnit with a couple of reasonable twists. I'm not usually a fan of real-world technology featuring in movies ( such as one of the cast receives an SMS message and the content gets shown on the screen like a HUD) but Searching managed to use actual technology in a realistic manner that wasnt too off putting.
