Baby Driver: 5.5/8. Not as good as many said, but definitely an entertaining action movie with a unique twist.

I remember him from The Virginian. From Wikipedia:

US television[edit]

He subsequently replaced actors Lee J. Cobb, Charles Bickford and John McIntire on NBC's The Virginian, as the new owner of the Shiloh ranch on prime-time TV for its ninth year (1971).[20] Granger said he accepted the role for money and because it "seemed like it could be a lot of fun", but was disappointed by the lack of character development for his role.[20]

Just looked at the movies he has been in. Wow! It's amazing how many some can rack up. It may be due to a combination of love of the vocation and fear of not working again.

Dunkirk. Lots of action, lots of effects....not much more. Maybe I'm missing it but it doesn't live up to the hype.

I finally got around to watching Mad Max Fury Road and was very disappointed. It was basically just a 2 hour car chase.

I'd give spider-man a 7

Entertaining and fast moving for a movie kept me in the theater for nearly 3 hours

Scene of the car ride to the dance was fantastic

Probably the best end credit scene yet

Vampyr (1932) - Truly creepy at times. Very innovative during the time of transition from silent to sound. There are some really neat film effects early in the movie that do not further the narrative and, even though they pretty cool, are a distraction. The death dream is pretty creepy also, but, again, doesn't further the narrative.

5/8

The Big Sick: 6.75/8


The movie is seemingly largely based on the life of Kumail Nanjiani, who also stars in the film. It ends up being a very good dramedy where it's a compelling drama, but there's enough laughter to keep it light. It does feel a little long despite only being 2 hours long. It could have benefited from maybe 5 minutes of cuts.

Frozen River (2008) is a great film. I saw it at the theater when it came out. I would have given it a solid 6/8 but I am just glad you enjoyed it Sig. The film did not get the box office it deserved in my opinion.

Every now and then, anyone else get surprised how subtly ingrained a movie or movies has become in your experience?

MSN has one of those addicting "top..." lists, John Wayne's top 50. I knew I'd know some of them but all said and done, I think there are MAYBE only 4 I never watched, let alone never heard of.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/gall...Bnb2gh#image=1

7.2/8 collectively

Two of the maybe lesser know I really liked,
Island in the Sky
The Long Voyage Home.

I'd be really surprised if there's any other actor I've seen 46 of their movies and actually remember them.

Hunter's Blood (1986)

Horror: A group of city folk friends head out to the deep woods in Arkansas to do some drinking and hunting but find themselves the prey as a group of inbred rednecks don't like them being around. A taste of deliverance ... 4.5/8

X (1963)

Horror: A doctor gets x-ray vision following an experiment. Well, it is all fine and dandy at first especially when he can control it and see the women dancing but it does not take long for it to get out of control.... it is what it is... 3.5/8

Dunkirk

7/8

Intense and by the end a deeply moving take on the Dunkirk evacuation. On the one hand Nolan uses his tricks at twisting a films timeline around before tying it all together at the end. At the same time the movie plays like a History Channel documentary with all sorts of little details and interesting tidbits.

Ultimately this is a very British film including the at times difficult to understand English accents. The acting and story are restrained with only a couple of emotional outbursts which allow for a slow by steady buildup to the emotional impact of the end. For example there's a scene where Mark Rylance snaps at his son that is almost as jarring as a bomb going off.

If you're a WW2 history buff you need to see this film.

The Man With the Golden Arm (1955) - Wow, Sinatra could act. His Academy Award nomination was well deserved. This film is especially relevant with our current societal struggle with Heroin.

7/8

I saw Dunkirk last night on Imax. Fantastic film. I commented in more detail on the Dunkirk thread.

Last king of scotland. Fantastic movie, Forrest Whitaker won an award for it and I can see why. He had it down perfect.
Watched it for some research of the country since I've been there for awhile

Good Fellas - 6/8 I watched this movie the day after catching three hour-long pieces about the "end" of the Mafia in NYC on National Geographic. Now have had my fill of bang-band, you're dead for a while. And, will probably watch this one again sometime - and more critically - as I understand it got great reviews. Maybe will give it a 7/8 if I appreciate it more. Started to watch another Mafia program on AMC last night and stopped after thirty minutes. LOL I need a little breathing room...

Saw this yesterday - I had to go with 5/8. Nanjiani is certainly very likable. Interesting portrayal of a "traditional" Pakistani family in America that has assimilated in some respects, and hasn't in others.

"All That Heaven Allows" (1955) - 6/8
Pretty good classic "old Hollywood" melodrama. Jane Wyman is a widowed New England high-society socialite who falls in love with Rock Hudson, a gardner and outdoorsman who is not impressed with social status.

nor with Jayne Wyman as it turned out. That was a best kept secret..

Wonder Women 6/8 really good story that totally screwed up the climax and which treated the WWI German soldier as if they were disposable Nazies. Some inconsistent acting/accents that came and went but some good spots too.

I Liked the depth and opportunity it gave to some of the supporting characters. Not in Avengers or Dark Knight neighborhood but still one of the better Superhero movies, particularly for a backstory movie.

Are you in Uganda? I loved the movie also. Idi Amin was a true terror.
