    Watched Molly’s Game on Netflix yesterday, really good drama of a poker game host, based on a true story.
    Cheers..

    The Shape of Water was on t’telly last night.

    Billed as romantic, fantasy so not my thing.

    It was very good. Sally Hawkins was excellent as she always is.

    'Hud' from 1963. Long time since I last saw it. Redford always good and convincing.
    But I had to turn to another channel and watch 'Men Who Stare at Goats' as it is such a great title and I've never watched it to the end before. A bit Catch 22-ish but not as funny. I thought they had been avoiding films with the disgraced Kevin Spacey, apparently not.

    Julia Hart's superb slow burn drama 'I'm Your Woman' is on Prime now. Well worth a watch.

    If anyone wants to see something a bit different, try 'dragged across concrete' staring Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughan. Reviews are polar opposites - generally very high (9-10) or very low (1-2) on imdb. I thought it was fantastic.
    Thanks for the recommendation, watched it on the weekend and really enjoyed it. My sort of film

    The Tailor of Panama. Geoffrey Rush as the eponymous tailor and Pierce Brosnan as an MI6 spook and playing it far more convincingly that he ever did as Bond. Based on a Le Carre novel (funnily one of only two of his novels I didn't enjoy) and directed by John Boorman. Well worth a look if you have't seen it.

    The Baker with Damian Lewis and Michael Gambon and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, very funny!

  16. #6466
    I watched The Seventh Day on Sunday & it's supposed to be a horror story but it's not exactly scary.
    Worth a watch but that's about it.

    With the dearth of new releases, I've been watching, and in some cases rewatching, various classics -

    The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) - the original with Steve McQueen, a masterpiece from the opening credits to the denouement. So many fab scenes - gliding, dune buggy, chess, etc. It's easy to see why Norman Jewison was such a highly regarded director.

    Scorpio (1973) - with Burt Lancaster and Alain Delon making one of his forays into English language fiims. Not a bad story but it's easy to see why Michael Winner was not a highly regarded director.

    Mort d'un Pourri (aka Death of a Corrupt Man or The Twisted Detective) (1977), another Delon but back on his home turf of Paris. Decent French flick but really Delon is never as good as when he was being directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.

    The Night of the Generals (1967). A whodunnit against the backdrop of the German occupation of Poland and France. A cast of the great and the good - Donald Pleasance, Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif, Tom Courtenay and also well known faces from English cinema and TV - Charles Gray, John Gregson, Nigel Stock, Gordon Jackson, etc. A prostitute is murdered and the only witness saw the person leaving the scene was wearing the uniform of German general - so which of the three generals in Warsaw - O'Toole, Pleasance or Gray is the psycho. German intelligence officer Sharif investigates.

    Charade (1963). Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn superb as ever, ably supported by Water Matthau, James Coburn and George Kennedy. Brilliantly witty dialogue and a clever story; it is often described as the best Hitchcock film not made by Hitchcock.

    Which I think is a very fair description. It's a great film. The Night of the Generals is on my watch list. I might give it a look this weekend.

    I liked A Perfect Spy but did find it slow. It is very autobiographical. You would probably hate The Naïve and Sentimental Lover. It is based on Le Carre's own divorce and is not a spy novel. It is very hard going, overly literary and most damning of all, an uninteresting story. For me his best writing is in the earlier part of his career. He has some fantatsic later novels, just not on par with the Cold War period.

    That's a bit harsh on Visconti
    Having said that Melville would have made a great film with people he picked from the street. Fantastic director. "L'armée des ombres" is another great film

    Yep, but I prefer the Melville/Delon partnership. It's understandable that so many leading directors from Tarantino to Scorsese to Spielberg to John Woo cite Melville as an inspiration, even lifting some of his ideas for their own ends.

    I also like to see Paris in the sixties and seventies, how it was before the witch in the Mairie set to tearing the heart out of the city. In 1945 the question was 'Paris, brûle-t-il?' Today il brûle and it's Hidalgo who has 'bel et bien allumé le feu'!!!

    Coincidentally, L'armée des ombres was from a novel by Joseph Kessel, who wrote the adapted screenplay for The Night of the Generals - a Franco-British production.

    Seconds by Frankenheimer. Not really a horror or a thriller, but scary and disturbing.

    I’ve tried to watch this multiple times but there always seems to be issue with the sound to me?
    It sounds like an old pirate vhs, very ‘tinny’ if that makes sense?

    Anyone watched any good movies recently?

    Just watched Bad Trip on Netflix, when it started I was like what the hell is this but stick with it and it had me in stitches.

    Also a very interesting concept.

    The Mauritanian on Amazon Prime was excellent- true story of a GitMo detainee and his legal team.

    Watched it last night with my 10yo. Don’t think I’m spoiling anything by telling you it’s light on storyline but heavy on the action. He thought it was great! Is currently watching it again

    Definitely heavy on the action. Certainly watchable but probably aimed more for the younger generation
    Either way it killed a couple of hours.

    Finally watched The Third Man last night. Enjoyed it so much I’ll have to watch it again. I love the zither music. Going to have to watch Citizen Kane now.

    Another vote for the Mauritanian, watched it last night with the wife, must be the first film we’ve watched in a while where she never fell asleep.

    The Big Easy was a lot of fun. It can't quiet decide if it is a gritty crime drama or a romantic comedy but somehow works.

    Under the Volcano is an adaption of one of my favourites novels. A tough book to film, John Houston does his best. Great performances from Albert Finney and Jacqueline Bisset‎.

    The Bountry Hunter is a formulaic and silly film, but I enjoyed watching it with the family.

    Started watching yesterday evening, Mrs T wasn't impressed so ended up watching 'Made in Italy' which was OK.
    Day off today so I continued with Bad Trip, I agree an interesting concept and I had several laugh out loud moments, It's daft but I enjoyed it

    Sound of Metal. Absolutely brilliant, a great example of making a wonderful film without a gazillion dollar budget.

    Interesting, I really didn't think it was his best work, though I'll admit anything with Hugh Grant in it, always a challenge for me even if/when he's playing against type. Might give it a second try.

    Watched Bad Samaritan on Prime last night. It's stars David Tennant and Robert Sheehan (from The Misfits), overall not bad and quite creepy in places.

    Watched Palm Springs last night, it's similar to Groundhog Day but set in the Californian Desert.
    It is very funny and we enjoyed it, best comedy film we've seen in a while.
