The Great Escape, Bullitt, and Papillion on TCM.  Bullitt is a classic, but I love Papillion.  McQueen and Hoffman make such good sufferers in totally different ways.  I did not watch all three sequentially. :<)

 

Cheers,

Saw Zoolander 2 last night. Not as good as the first one; the whole Cumberbatch isue, yeah, nothing major but maybe a little off there.

 

Don Atari (?) actor did an amazing job, he drove quite angry every time he was on screen, spot on depiction on current artisty trends.

 

Valentino looks in pretty bad shape, bit shocked when he appeared.

 

No repeat of 'crazy pills', I'm afraid, but Mugatu is still best thing about the film. Needed more Evil DJ as well.

Harold and Maude - Hal Ashby (1971)

 

 

 

Semi entertaining this periode typical comedy about a young man's suppression and way out of it; falling in love with a 80 year old woman.

 

The enemy is society, here  represented by his mother, and the liberation is about deciding to be free. Nah, me think it is more difficult in real life.

This is hippie bullshit imo. 

The filming is very 70ish, moving between wideangle interiors (which is done quite good here) and the use of telelenses.  The clothing is just perfect of that time.  Think brown, wide trousers and lapels and long collars.

Muscle Shoals. Entertaining and amazing.

Naked among wolves  - Phillipp Kadelbach (2015)

 

 

 

 

 

I didn't like this movie. How much I tried, cause of the Second world war and all my sympathy with the victims and the need for Germany to suffer in guilt, I think this is a superstitious and sentimental movie with lousy direction. I don't know what he is trying to tell me.

Deadpool. Violence. Nudity. Gore. Sometimes all at the same time. 4th wall shenanigans. Good job, well done. I'm curious to see how they ditch the girlfriend angle for the sequel, I'd prefer a single, horny Deadpool, all the better to annoy the crap out of Cable.

Saw Everest last night. Very good

i recently (finally!) watched the IMAX everest movie from the spring of 96. the movie included some of the fallout from the squall that killed those mountaineers and the IMAX team actually helped with the triage at that time.

 

it was OK, it was made by MacGillivray iirc who also made the ultimate surf movie 5 Summer Stories. interested in seeing the dramatic redux but probably won't have a chance to catch it in the theater. boo.

Watched Dancer in the Dark. Was very frustrating at times. The ending was very powerful. 7/10.

One of my favourites. In my book von Trier is the most important director nowadays.

The best of youth, very good and emotive film in two parts that chronicles one italian family from the 60's to the 2000's. For those interested in the history of Italy. 8/10.

The great madcap by Buñuel, nice comedy, not the kind of movie you would expect from him but representative from his mexican era. 6/10

Tried to watch this last night. Got about thirty minutes through before turning it off. Read the plot synopsis on wikipedia and I'm glad I quit when I did. Bud Cort has a face tailor made for horror films.

What We Do In The Shadows: Very funny if you like the wry sort of humor this crew is great at. Rhys Darby is in it and that should be all you need to watch it. Heard they're making a sequel/spinoff called We're Wolves, ha.

Kill List: Had potential but was ultimately very unsatisfying. Decent concept that just wasn't executed well.

After the wedding - Susanne Bier (2006)

 

 



Really enjoyed this; a good story I can believein; all characters have strong and  weak points. A movie about the choices we make in life and about responsibility; the one we take and the one we avoid. And Mads Mikkelsen is such a good actor torn between new and old relations.
