    Almost reminds me of, like, a fight in a musical? Very overly theatrical and fake.

    When they shoot Mo Green aswell, it's hilarious.

    A crack just appears in his specs and blood spurts out, with him just lying down again. So funny..

    No one is saying the Godfather has to be the best, but to dislike it shows a neo-hipster too-cool-for-the-room bullshit that just isn't believable. It's like hating on The Wizard of Oz. You just don't mean it.

    Hit up a couple of movies on Netflix at a friend's:

    First this:

    Unbelievably bad. Should have hit up RT first (11%). Needed a classic to cleanse the palate, so this followed:

    To my surprise I could remember most of the dialogue, even though it's been 20+ years since I last saw it. Still fun.

    Sadly not always :-(

    Admittedly I do catch myself watching a good deal of dreg, though I'm getting better at turning it off when it dawns on me.

    Just finished this:

    Seems to be a rather faithful adaptation, but uneven with some slightly kitchy (and not very efficient) attempts at horror. As always, nice to see Colin Firth.

    I think I'll blame this recent bout of mediocrity on the local Netflix library ;-)

    watched The Talented Mr. Ripley today and it was really good. I was not familiar with the books at all so I definitely did not see the
    gay part coming. they did a good job of somehow getting me to cheer for matt damon to get off scott free even though he was completely insane

    quite impressed by it. I was looking for a movie to watch today and just randomly picked it because I know I've heard the name a million times although I had no idea what it was. looked it up and it was listed in crime/mystery genre with a good cast and I was sold.

    There's another of the Ripley books adapted with Johnny Malklovich, Ripley's Game, that is also quite good.

    Andromeda Strain is rated G? Thousands of people die. They threaten nuclear apocalypse. That's ok for 5 year olds?

    Nudity and sex are the biggest threats to humanity not war and violence. Nuclear apocalypse is fine.

    And the F word.

    Public use of the F word caused the fall of the British Empire.

    Rewatched the Godfather (first one) based on this thread. Still an amazing movie 9/10. The attire (to me at least) does not seem 1940s - 1950s and sometimes looks clearly 70s (brother in law with the tracksuit...?).

    On one hand, 3 hours of WTF?, on the other hand, an economical way to watch 6 movies.

    Perhaps not as great as The Three Burials, but still very good.

    I have not finished this one yet.
    Based on a play, acted like one.
    Meryl Streep is great as always (she also has a small but good part in The Homesman).
