If we are comparing McQ to Brannigan: Branigan, not a very good movie, is like a Best Picture Oscar winner compared to McQ!

Finally, a voice of raisin! O0

I never thought I'd hear people claiming McQ was a masterpiece.

It would help to have a point of comparison to determine real vs. fake heroes.

And who is the author of that article positing as a real "Civil Rights hero"?

Double Indemnity - 8/10 - 3rd viewing.

Surely that isn't the Main Theme but Sixty Seconds for What?

Yeah, if we're going to complain about long-winded, aureate dialogue in a Coen Bros. film...

Faust (1960) - 7.5/10 - Recording of Gustaf Grundgens' legendary performance as Mephistopheles. Not cinematically interesting, but a worthwhile curio: Grundgens was the German Olivier, if Olivier were a Nazi collaborator, and this is his most famous role. Very happy to have found this: YouTube works wonders!

The Quare Fellow - 7/10 - Grim British prison drama with Patrick McGoohan as a warder whose first job is to oversee a hanging. Sylvia Sims is the condemned man's wife. I understand Brendan Behan's original play is much more comic; this is dark, grim kitchen sink stuff with only a few dashes of dark humor.

PT-109 - 6/10 - Cliff Robertson reenacts John F. Kennedy's wartime exploits in mediocre vanity project.

My Life for Ireland - 3/10 - More Anglophobic Nazi propaganda. The most entertaining things were the YouTube rants by plastic paddies and neo-Nazis in the comments section.

Titanic (1943) - 5/10 - Herbert Selpin's Nazi-approved take on the Titanic tragedy is a snooze. Endless Brit bashing mixed with assorted melodramatic plot strands. The sinking scenes are well-done but don't come until two-thirds of the way through. James Cameron obviously saw it as several scenes are copied almost verbatim.
