The Shoes of the Fisherman (1968) - An obscure bishop goes from being under the heavy thumb of communism to become the Pope and brings reform to the Church. It is amazing how much this film prefigures JPII or maybe inspired the Cardinals to chose someone like him.

6/8

Drama based on Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky's homonymous novel about the proud Karamazov family in 1870s Russia.[Source: IMBd]

Pretty much a Russian soap opera. First time I have seen Shatner in something other than Star Trek. 5/8

John Wick 2 .... 2.0/8

Come on guys, did we have to destroy a 70 Chevelle and a 69 Mach 1. Unforgivable.

Just not my kind of movie, I mean, how many times can somebody get hit by a car and just get up like nothing happened... lol,

Crazy Rich Asians: 6.5/8

Believe the hype. Extremely funny, and puts a new spin on a plot that's been-there-done-that. Overally just a very enjoyable film

Operation Crossbow (1965) - An entertaining WWII film about Britain's response to the German's V1 & V2 rocket program. The aerial response made by British bombers was accurate, I did not, however, buy into the whole espionage thing. Entertaining but not up there with the great WWII films of the late 50's and early to mid 80's.

5/8

Not even the Twilight Zone episode, with the airplane? You got to go see that. It's flowed so much into popular culture, you wouldn't get the reference.

Funny you mention that! As I was typing, a faint thought about that lurked in the inner reaches of my mind (scary), peaking around the corner. Still, I blew the thought off - something I have learned is not a good thing to do at work. Bites you in theas each time!

How it Ends was horrendous. Wasn't even fun bad like a Zombeavers or something. I wouldn't even give it a 2.

Twelve Angry Men (1957) - Great film. Tense and claustrophobic as these twelve very different men deliberate the fate of a poor minority kid accused of murder. It couldn't be made as well in a contemporary setting, as the heat and discomfort of being stuck in an unairconditioned jury room would not be relatable by a modern audience.

Very hard on public defenders.

7.5/8

Agree that this is a great movie. Saw the original and the 1997 remake (with Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Edward James Olmos, Hume Cronyn, James Gandolfini, et al.), and from what I can recall, the remake stayed pretty true to the original.

I second that, having seen it a couple of months ago on TCM. I'd like to see the remake per your recommendation.

IT: Chapter 1 (Canada-2017)

Horror: Oh goody, low expectations going in but it was time to watch it. The important thing about this film is that you have to like the kids. I recognized 2 of them, 1 from Stranger Things and the other from the TV show Me, Myself, and I so I was already used to his squeaky voice. I liked the opening scene... Pennywise was really creepy and oh poor Georgie... but I did not like the kids at first. I did get used to them as it went on but this film needed more Pennywise. Overall, I did like it ... 5.5/8

It was time to call it a night when I decided to watch the first few minutes.

Every once in a while, I'd remind myself I needed to "pull the switch", yet ended up watching the entire thing.

I think I was sweating as much as those guys were!

Daughters of the Dust (1991) - An absolutely beautiful film. I got some of it but I wish I understood more of the symbolism and even just the dialog. The accents were hard enough to understand but if you add the Gullah dialect it was that much harder. I wish they had subtitles as I believe I would understand the dialect if I could read what they were saying. Even with my understanding only about 3/4 of what was going on, the tale of a unique culture being threatened by modernity and the importance of community and family came through loud and clear.

6/8

Deadpool (2016) - Fun film starring one of my favorite actresses, Morena Baccarin. I love the wisecracks. They reminded me of some of the movies from the 30s and 40s with witty banter (if you disregard the vulgarity).

5/8

Claws (1977)

Horror: We are in Alaska! A mountain man blames his life was ruined following a bear attack. 5 years later he decides to go hunt the Devil Bear Kustaka to find peace of mind. Oh yeah, well, this is not Grizzy from 1976 but it was entertaining enough until the stupid scene toward the end. Acting did suffer a bit but hey, I like Alaska and 70's horror flicks and of course they use a real bear... no stupid CIG in the 70's baby..... 3.0/8

Chop Stix is an unknown quantity at this point
Searching (2018)

Told entirely through the perspective of different technological devices (webcams, phone cameras, computer monitors, etc.) a single father works tirelessly to solve the mystery behind his daughter's sudden disappearance.

It was an interesting story-telling device that thrived at times and was hampered by bad acting at other points in the movie.

5/8

Ship of Fools (1965) - The film is about a ship full of people steaming from South and Central America to Spain and eventually to prewar Germany (1933). There is a great deal of irony, including the American redneck who doesn't understand the German discrimination against Jews, the whole while he shows his racism against Blacks, the uber Reich supporter, who is a bit too dark and a bit too ethnic to be part of the Aryan movement his magazine supports and the well liked and good natured Jewish businesman who says that he is first a proud German and only secondly a Jew. When the later says of anti-jewish actions of some of the Germans on board, "you have to have patience and understanding, the world is getting better all of the time" his optimism and naivete are in stark contrast to what we know will happen in a few short years.

Vivian Leigh shines in her last film role, as a sad divorcee who, in her mid forties, is a faded Southern bell. It is kind of fun to watch Werner Klemperer, of Col. Klink fame, woo her. In contrast to Vivian Leigh's character is Christiane Schmidtmer"s performance as a beautiful, vivacious and energetic German girl who could be the poster child for recruiting young men into the Hitler Youth.

A little soapy at times but still a good film which was nominated for Best Picture by the Academy.

6/8

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

8/8


One of John Ford's greatest movies is also one of the top ten westerns of all time.

The first movie I remember going to as a kid. It was either the Palace or the Albee in downtown Cincinnati. It's been over 60 years and the song is still in my head.

Didn't Ford also direct The Grapes of Wrath? Borrowed it from the library this past year, and I thought it still held up well.

On a separate note, as far as westerns go, one of my favorites is High Noon.

Kyuketsuki Gokemidoro (Japan-1968)

Horror: Found this strange channel that shows some weird stuff late at night and oh my, Shock Theater came on hosted by the one and only Doctor Creep! .... anyhow, this was the movie they were showing but it was dubbed and I cannot handle that. Did a quick search and found the original. AKA Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell ... well, we find ourselves on an airplane over Japan but soon problems. A man with a gun, another with a bomb and of course a death red sky with a flying saucer..... it is a frantic battle for survival..... 5.0/8

White Boy Rick

5.5 / 8

Some solid acting. Storyline was pretty good but dragged on too long for me. Reviews were mixed as usual depending on the narrative created by the source. Story about race, drugs, poverty, crime, bad cops and a gun toting/selling white dad.

5.0 / 8

Always enjoy the take on vigilante movies. She's no Paul Kersey but Jennifer Garner did okay.
