The Godfather Part III (1990)

I recall being totally underwhelmed by this on my first and only viewing so far. It's got issues but still hangs together as a 3rd piece to the story. It wouldn't stand up as story on its own unlike the first 2. Good points are Talia Shire is lovely and Machiavellian as Connie, Andy Garcia is impressive as Vincent. Bad points: the violence is too contrived. No Tom Hagen. The Vatican plot is just a mish mash of real life occurrences to fit a storyline. And it is *far* more interesting than that. Middle: Sofia Coppola is fair enough in her part, not the worst at all, Al Neri still a bad SOB

Heard Coppola needed the money and, to be fair, it's not a dial in job just a bit forced.




Weekend re-watrches:




1st Re-watch...The screenplay is overly complex and overly cute, but the stars make it worth watching.





9th re-watch...The 2002 Oscar winner for Best Picture hasn't aged a bit in 18 years,,,Rob Marshall's direction and choreography are imaginative and the performances of Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones still electrify.






1st Re-watch...this 2004 Best Picture Oscar winner still packs a wallop. Eastwood, Swank, and Freeman are superb. Freeman won an Oscar, even though I think he's done better work. Swank's Oscar was richly deserved and Eastwood should have won. The last 20 minutes of this movie turn me into a puddle.

I love Chicago (2002).



H&K MP5 deserves more praise.


A film made for cinema in times of streaming - The blu-ray version of this film is marvellous. The audio alone deserves 5.



Some scenes didnt'd aged well. Others are still a great achievement in the history of cinema. Personally I dislike most of the actors in this film (specially Tom Hanks and Matt Damon) but they menaged to not be as annoying as in later films.



Brazilian fiction with some real elements. As a brazilian myself, I can tell you that this film is bull**** in the majority of his elements, but the "real" elements, are the great aspect of it.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988) - 5.8/10. Probably the definition of 80s cheese. Credit where credit is due... This is first movie I saw where they directly go to cops rather than the lame idea of "who is going to believe us". And also the dud concept of "Let's split up". I liked the clowns too. But it's just about okay overall. Nothing great!

Shoes - 7.5/10
I finally watched a movie, and I finally finished a silent movie after a few attempts at other ones. I didn't know this one was only an hour long. My DVR had it at 2 hours, and the "Movie Info" had it at 101 minutes. It was just on TCM, so it might be available On-Demand. Has anyone seen this? If so, what did you think?

I liked that the movie centered around the young woman. She's in every scene, and even when there isn't much happening, she's reflecting on a life that could be. I guess I always have loved movies centered around poverty and struggle.



The Return (2003)



A recent re-watch of a breathtaking Russian film. I tend to think that "Father" had a troublesome upbringing and that's why he's let back into the boys lives at this stage. I don't know, what I do is that as a straight-forward film this is excellent. As an allegory it works even better. A truly touching film.

Liked this film a lot Gideon, quite simple but effective.

Must post my review for Dr Alien soon Hell Storm....sounds like both were philosophical works



Warning: does not play well with others


My Chauffeur
(1986)
2.5/5
By today's standards, this film is degrading. There are many times the older chauffeurs say sexist things to her or about her.

THE LORDS OF FLATBUSH
(1974)

First viewing. Underrated cult classic.

Last film I saw was The Gentlemen , 10/10 for me



AKA Jane Roe (2020)


I really enjoyed this...from shocking to humorous...it's almost Tiger King-like. It probably won't push you in one way or another on the issue of abortion, but it does shed light on the ridiculous measures that people will take to impact society. Abortion remains a VERY gray area for me.
