It is in the eye of the beholder I realise, but I consider that I have a superb 'bullshit filter'. Don't we all think that?
Not anymore I don't.
"Bad Mom's," hilarious! The Christmas version is very good too, not quite as crude but certainly not for the kiddies
I like the first three Harry Potter movies best. After that they get darker. I like my fantasy to be fun, not dark. Life is dark enough.
La La Land is a musical and worth seeing, especially in a theater. Great soundtrack, including the instrumental numbers; I have both CDs. The same composer did "Whiplash", about music but without singing!
I'm more into the music than the actual movies but I agree, the first three were my favorites as well. Just my opinion, but I think the best music is on the first three movies.
Excellent film about the blacklisting of film scriptwriters in post-WW II Hollywood, when people thought they saw Communists under every rug. Bryan Cranston is awesome as Dalton Trumbo, one of the more outspoken victims in the story. John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Louis C.K., Helen Mirren, and Diane Lane all make a great contribution to the film.
Solo. It's on Netflix and a good Star Wars movie. Certainly not the train wreck it was made to be.
I'd watch more of them, no problem at all. I think the guy playing Han did quite a good job, and certainly captured some of Harrison Ford's portrayals charisma.
Much better than I expected.
No offence to you when I say this; They'd have to drag me there to watch that movie. If I wasn't aware that it was a musical and I was watching it, as soon as the first word was sung I'd either be walking out of the cinema or if at home, would be ejecting the disc. The same goes for The Greatest Showman(or whatever the title is). I like the old musicals and I draw the line there. Rogers and Hammerstein. Lerner and Lowe. Musicals of that era. I avoid the rest. I've not seen any Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals. I saw Jesus Christ superstar as a stage musical.
If other people like them, I have no criticism of appreciating Musicals. I'd just prefer to not watch the newer ones. I hope that doesn't offend anyone but that is the way it is.
Just took "Thunder Road" as well in this night...surprized that I had missed this one along the way.
For it's time, not bad. Lots of action, with some flat spots, but the cars/music was OK! The clothes were something. Never noticed that some guys hitched their pants up so high. And the slang of the time...
As per the music theme in the movie, this was discussed at the start of the movie, and they went over that Michum's original song wasn't sung by him and it was in a ballad format. The original that had hit the charts was in rock-a-billy format. I guess from the discussion, Robert took his music pretty serious. And he had a darn good voice at the time.
Enjoying the Burt Bacharach score performed by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass on the stereo. Idiotic, forget about the plot, but I like it.
Oz The Great And Powerful
Since I'm not working right now (Gov't Contractor) I've had a chance to up the number of times I've seen this movie.
I think I've watched it 20 times since the 21st of December. Great cast and good storytelling.
Of Human Bondage (1946)
(Paul Henreid, Eleanor Parker, Alexis Smith)
A medical student with a club foot falls for a beautiful but ambitious waitress. She soon leaves him, but gets pregnant and comes back to him for help. - IMDb
This version didn't score very high on IMDb (6.4/10), but then again, who cares! What do they know ...
I have also seen the version with Kim Novak (1964), both enjoyable but I prefer this version more, even though I'm a sucker for Kim Novak. The only version I haven't seen is from 1934 with Bette Davis.
After reading the book in high-school many years ago, I just wish I had paid more attention. Great story.
I last watched DOA (1949) on VHS
How was it?
Excellent, the performances and the story.
