I might be a fraction over my fighting weight.    

Slightly off topic but any chance of you changing your Avatar? That's half an hour of my life gone.

Watched, "Danger Close" about Australian and New Zealand soldiers face overwhelming odds as they fight for their lives during the Battle of Long Tan in Vietnam.   As it happens a friend of m

3 Days of the Condor, All the Presidents Men, The Great Gatsby, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and many more. I didn't enjoy The Old Man and a Gun though.

I like all of those you mentioned and although The Old man.........wasn't one of his best, still an ok movie for me.

Have you ever seen Jeremiah Johnson?? An all time favourite of mine, but made some time ago and it was a long movie and had an "intermission" time half way through it!

Yes I have that one in my collection. I like most of his films, but got to admit "The Old Man with Gun" was a disappointment.

 

Mind, did fall asleep half way through. Maybe I should watch it again all the way through next time, could be it's a good film after all :unsure:

Saw two movies last two days - one awful, one great.

 

I didn't see director Steve McQueen's 3rd feature "12 Years a Slave" because I thought it was the sort of film that was going to give me a headache from anger over the injustice I expected to be portrayed.

 

His 4th feature, "Widows" is finally available.

Total timewaster.

Very flat - a lot of scenes feel like they filmed the rehearsal.

The actors sometimes seem to be acting in different films.

Terrible script - the central caper and the way it is conducted is so absurd, and the big plot twist doesn't evoke shock and surprise but "Ok. So what?" because everything is already on the level of episodic TV plus some swearing and a tad of nudity.

 

I ended up getting my anger headache anyway, because the next day I decided to watch a film I'd seen very long ago - Costa-Gavras' 3rd feature "Z" (1969).

Half a century later, this film has lost none of its punch and power.

A thriller about what became a major worldwide scandal in Greece.

As the forward to the film states "Any resemblance with non-fictitious events or people, living or dead, is not a coincidence.

It is INTENTIONAL".

 

Stirring and exciting.

 

I also felt sadness as it makes me think of what is going on now in Venezuela with the USA launching a coup to destroy a democratically elected government there.

 

If you haven't seen this, definitely worth viewing, and if you have seen it, definitely worth viewing again.

Yes it was a bit "average" IMO, but ok, still better than a lot of rubbish I am seeing on my torrent site!

The Sting was a good movie, however that was made in 1973. Since then he's been in a lot of duds. Really only old women rate him now.

When you have something positive to say, I'm sure people will take notice of you.

Just being real.

Have you considered such a thing as personal taste? What you may or may not like is not necessarily the same as someone else.
