I don't really care who plays 007, so long as friggin Sam Mendes goes away. Far away.

Trivia question. What do these two films have in common?

Apparently Babe spurred an upswing in vegetarianism. I’m thinking the likes of Bullet Town did not effect a decrease in gun deaths, unfortunately.

Inside Man was sitting on my shelf for a while, but I watched it last night with the commentary. The movie, already great, is even better with Spike Lee's comments. https://uproxx.com/movies/inside-man-denzel-washington-clive-owen/

The next general election is 16 months away. Donald Trump is the president. And as always, the Democrats are busy tearing each other apart.

I've always loved that painting, you know the one, by Leutze, of George Washington crossing the Runway.

Have you ever seen (or even heard of) Hardcore Henry? A frightening and astounding amount of what happens on screen in this film was done in camera, according to director Ilya Naishuller.

Comment

It looks really interesting, but I get motion sickness from first person games/video that isn’t stabilized. The camera work alone had me intrigued.

This whole movie is first person POV. It's like a game but whoever is playing is way better than me.

@jvjannotti: this is definitely one of the times I wish I didn’t get that queasy/headache. I’d love to watch it at least once.

Walked into this coffee shop and they're playing "Beatles for Sale." The whole album. For today, anyway, this is my new favorite place. farmhouse-coffee https://www.farmhousecoffee.com/

That album ended and now Revolver is playing :)

Kung Fu Hustle: lots of calls out to other, better movies (Untouchables, The Shining, Exalibur to name just one scene) makes it interesting. Otherwise it's people flying after being hit, or the hitters flying toward the hittees. Sometimes both at the same time.

I've never seen it from beginning to end. But I love the final fight scene.

So, Mokumz, I just finished binging Escape at Dannemora. My tastes are fairly unique and eclectic, so take my opinion for what it's worth. This is a masterwork. It was uniformly riveting and ultimately devastating. Ben Stiller (director) is a genius.

Truly a heartbreaking work of staggering genius.

I skipped the Kenneth Branagh version of the Frankenstein story 23 years ago. Am watching it tonight and now understand that my powers of prediction were perfect. Picture Neil McCauley (from Heat) saying "As I killed him, I saw your face." or "You gave me life and then left me to die."

No sunrises or sunsets yet this week due to lots of clouds, but each day the sun has appeared at just the right time for sitting on the beach with a book. As a picture in our house says, "If you're lucky enough to be at the beach, you're lucky enough."

Ellen DeGeneres begins her Netflix special "Relatable" by mocking herself for 6 minutes. I don't watch a ton of comedy but I've never seen a cold open like this before. Great and very funny.

Back in February, my young charge came in wearing new Nikes. But they were lace-ups. Because of his disability set, he has some fine motor deficits and is unable to tie his shoes. Guess who gets to tie them? So, I said to his sister when he was getting off the bus the next day, "Now I'll have to teach him to tie his shoes."

She replied, "I don't ever see that happening."

Just now, for probably the 10,000th time, I fully typed a comment on a facebook post. And then I backspaced over it until it was completely gone, said, "What the f888 am I thinking," and linked here.

Just watched An American Werewolf in London for the, I don't know, sixth time in my life. Some movies are bad. Some movies are good. Some movies are great. And some movies, like this one, are f-bomb worthy.

And also... I thought John Landis was dead. Embarrassing. https://www.google.com/search?q=john+landis&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS777US777&oq=john+landis&aqs=chrome.0.69i59l2j69i61j69i60j0l2.2361j0j1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

It seems Mr. Landis' son, Max, is trying to get a remake going (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1465834/?ref_=fn_al_tt_4). This does not sound like a good idea, although I'm happy to be proved wrong, Max.
