Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid - 1969



Not quite what I was expecting after watching some other Westerns from this time period. You can tell why Newman and Redford were such big stars. Their charisma oozes out of the scenes in this movie, especially Newman.

It's crazy you watch all these old westerns and old movies from this time and you expected them to have a certain feel to them. This movie is unique because it almost feels like a modern movie with how the script was written, it was acted and how it was shot. Minus a few shots in the film it feels like it could have came out yesterday. It was written with a lot of comedy placed in it. I smiled many times during the flick. Newman is so damn likable. Also it's eerie how much young Redford looks, moves and talks like Brad Pitt. It was a weird experience watching it expecting something else.

The story itself could have maybe used some better pacing. It's a fascinating story but about the pace felt off to me I don't know. It's a great flick but again I feel like it could be improve upon with the right people remaking it. But it certainly had to have been a shock for audiences at the time. Almost like looking into the future.

I'd give it 3.7 out of 5.

Love Letter (1995) - 6/10. A hammy romantic movie. The complete movie is set in the winter snow and it's delightful. The movie is slow paced and doesn't grab you. For what it's worth, the lead actress is to die for. Delish!

El incidente (2014, Isaac Ezban)

Another low-budget sci-fi mindbender involving the concept of infinite loops, kinda like Nacho Vigalondo's Timecrimes but not quite as good imo. Definitely warrants multiple viewings to get it sorted in your head. I thought some aspects of it were pretty good, others not so much. What stood out to me the most was how effective this movie was in plunging the viewer into the creepy ugliness and misery and grotesqueness of being caught in a trap like that, compared to other similar films I've seen - some of the imagery was palpably uncomfortable on a subliminal level. On the downside, I didn't like the "explanation" sequence all that much - I mean I understand the intent but I wish it was done in a less obvious, blunt manner, plus it just flashed by at lightning speed without letting the viewer catch his breath for a second and absorb all the craziness being hurled his way. Overall, pretty decent, kudos for the concept and the effort, even though I didn't really fully grasp it. Definitely worth a watch if these type of flicks are up your alley.



Once Upon A Time In The West (1968)



I think a remake would actually do this movie alot of good if it was reworked a bit.
Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid - 1969



It's a great flick but again I feel like it could be improve upon with the right people remaking it.

While I knew going in that it had mediocre reviews, it was truly an awful mess. Incredible actors, with a relevant subject matter about the me too movement - And spin it with a twist, which is that it's setting is Fox news. The problem is that one of main characters is made up (Margot Robbie) and somehow such an important and complex subject matter gets boiled down to a surface level story.

2/5

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020)

A somewhat lame and boring film that really tries to be hectic and fun, but rarely pulls it off. Harley is the only decent character in the film while all the birds are nothing more than dull cliches. Action isn't that good either. Is this really how women want their action films? Is the fact that all the protagonists are women the only thing that matters? I don't get it. Not a horrible movie but not that far above either.

My House in Umbria (2003)

This is an absorbing drama/character study set in Italy starring the incomparable Maggie Smith. I'm not sure why, but the Brits do this type of film better than anybody.

Also starring Chris Cooper, Timothy Spall, and the then 11 year old Emmy Clarke, it's directed by Richard Loncraine on a teleplay by Hugh Whitmore based upon a novel by William Trevor.

Miss Delahunty (Smith) is a published romance novelist who lives her life similar to the romantic heroines she features in her books. She has purchased a lovely estate used as a pensione, set on beautiful grounds in Umbria, Italy. While on a shopping trip by train she is injured by a terrorists bomb, along with several other passengers in her car. Several are killed, and 3 require a place to convalesce from their injuries, so Miss Delahunty offers to have them roomed and boarded at her estate.

She develops a special motherly fondness for the young girl, and wants to have her stay on during her adolescence. The girl's uncle (Cooper) is presumed upon to take her back to America; the elderly passenger contemplates staying on; and the younger patient is suspected of being involved in the terrorist plot. There is plenty of interaction between the players, and the narrative skips along nicely leading to a gratifying ending.

Miss Smith is at the top of her talents in this film, winning a prime time Emmy, and a Golden Globe nomination. She has complete mastery of subtle nuances in her expressions, mannerisms, and voice. Cooper is always a favorite, but here he plays the thankless role of an emotionally distant uncle and confidant. Spall, as Delahunty's helper, confidant and rescuer from the past, turns in one of his patented near-perfect performances.

This is an HBO production, but it's a well done circumspect one, before they moved into more carnal and libertine subject matter. If you've missed this one, it would be worth your while to search it out.

Doc's rating: 9/10



Interesting. I didn't see the dialog being a problem with this one at all. I found it emotionally exhausting, so I wouldn't watch it again, but

I do think back to that final scene at the grave often. What a perfect ending.



Interesting Posting style! Yeah, I thought the dialogue went from the profound to the melodramatic too quickly. The conversation between Frank and his wife in the diner a perfect example.



The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible
Watched MI 4, 5 and 6 yesterday and it looks like the found the balance the previous installements were missing!

Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (2011)

Some very solid action sequences. It bothered me that so many of those gadgets were failing. I get the point but I think it was overdone. Cruise also seemed a bit tired in some scenes and the age seems like it is catching up to him on this one.



Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015)

Rebecca Ferguson is a great addition to the cast, and the chemistry between the entire IMF team just grows from film to film. The opera scene is extremely well made and the motorbike speed chase is one of the most amazing action sequences in the whole series.



Mission: Impossible Fallout (2018)

Easily the best of the 6 films. It's notorious in all of them, but Cruise's dedication to his craft is beyond impressive! The last act is breathtaking and masterfully done!

Meant Freddy apologies.





Re-watch (for the umpteenth time) of a movie classic. Thirty years old, but not dated in the least.

Il portiere di notte (1974)
aka The Night Porter

For being advertised as the most controversial movie of its time, it was certainly disappointingly tame. It's still obviously a film that'll raise some eyebrows today, but that's just due to the topic (a relationship between a former concentration camp prisoner and one of the Nazis who ran the place). The film starts promising but once the leads get together it loses a lot of its steam. The whole side plot of the former Nazis trying to erase the evidence of their crimes derailed what could have been an interesting sexual character study. Annoyingly average.




⬆️ Would never describe The Night Porter as “tame”, but that’s just me.



The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible
Sunshine (2007)

I had such high expectations for this. The premise is very interesting and having Cillian Murphy and Chris Evans on the cast just made everything more promising.
Sadly, the movie pretty dies at the premise. It's always annoying when a Sci-Fi just comes up with a crazy concept and uses that as an excuse to do everything. It's just lazy. And I hate it when films try to pass themselves as scientifically informed and have things like sound in space. Besides, the whole tension and serious of events and misfortunes, happens for a ridiculous reason, that I can't take seriously.
Apart from that, it looks shallow and pretty boring.
