"forget it Jake...its Chinatown" First time I have seen this in years. Superlative direction, script, dialogue and cast. As for Nicholson's wardrobe sartorial nirvana. An all time classic 5/5 and then some.

Just goes to show how good tv movies have gotten to be
More lighthearted Keaton as journalist fare...
A gang story - Olivier Marchal (2011)
I liked this homage to The Godfather, but the frist 30 minutes were hard to get through; the editor had left the work to the apprentice and she could just not cope.
A bit of Once upon a time in America as well, since the theme here is loyalty and betrayal.
Beast of no nations - Cary Joji Fukunaga (2015)
This could have been a good and interesting tale of African boy soldiers, but the script is to obvious and the story brings nothing new to the understanding of this terrible molesting of young lives. Not even Idris Elba can save this medio-boring Netflix production, he seem uninterested and has little to help him self with in this stereotypical movie; it seems calculated and more on the speculative side.
Not even the breathtaking African wilderness is utilize to more than being just a backdrop for Reader's Digest view of people horrible lives.
Ip Man 3; not bad, Donnie Yen is always worth watching. Choreography is different from the first 2, due to Sammo not doing it anymore. I'd say I still enjoy the first one over the sequels. Number 2 is the worst, that British boxer baddie is the worst stereotype ever, I remember watching the film in a cinema in Dalian and being genuinely worried that I'd get punched in the face after the film by over-zealous patriotic members of the audience. Tyson's Mandarin is, well, um, an acquired taste? A good try? Nah, got nothing.
The Guest was fun, it gets really over the top but it also keeps its tongue firmly in its cheek so both my wife and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
