Cincinnati Kid (1965) Interesting that Peckinpah had worked on the movie 2 weeks before Jewison took the helm. P. was, strangely, shooting in B&W but, as J. observed, as many shoots include black and red cards, it was odd to opt for no colour. Anyway the movie gets 8/10. For the first time I really liked Ann-Margret.

The Sound of Music (1965) I've finally forced myself, after 50 years, to watch it. Hadn't realized before that JA was playing again Mary Poppins, even taking the bag from that character. Unfortunately the movie can't hold a candle to the Disney masterpiece.The story is the zero degree of inventiveness, the dialogues stink so it remains the music. I've discovered a couple of songs, apart from My Favourite Things, one could even be very good. 4/10 to the movie, 7/10 to the score.

Sans mobile apparent (1971) Routine cop movie based on a Lombino's 87th Pr. novel. I think it was very badly directed and Trintignant miscast. Laura Antonelli beautiful as usual, best thing in the movie. Morricone's score has the arrangement of the '60's stuff (whistle, Flugelhorn solos) but the tunes are not as catchy. 5/10

No, it isn't. I reviewed many before here. But this was boring and absolutely unoriginal. Actually I like the D.C. and Marvel comic heroes, but here just all that crap with Smith's daughter makes me puke. The Special effects are 15 years old, maybe more. The first fight with the Mussel (or whatever they were)) Men embarrassing. Shall I have to continue?

I hope I didn't infer the feeling as though I judging your original score. I haven't seen Suicide Squad and never really cared much for it from the trailers. I was just wondering because I haven't noticed any other comic book reviews, I guess I wasn't paying much attention. But I do enjoy reading your write ups so please continue if you have more to say.

Mechanic Resurrection (2016) At IMDB nobody saves it. but I think it's just a run-of-the-mill action movie with some good action scenes and a tolerable pace. 6/10

The Infiltrator (2016) Another John Leguizamo movie. It seems this guy's everywhere, like Nicole Kidman was a few years ago. Usually these undercover cop movies are talky, slow-paced and, with a few exceptions, boring. This is no exception, especially as there's not the Mafia's subcultural codes and mafiosi odd characters to enliven it. Also, the protagonist is anonymous as his character, and that doesn't help: my first meeting with Brian Cranston and can't say I had missed him. 5/10

Never Back Down: No Surrender (2016) Kickboxing flick. I presume it's the regular slop served. 6/10?

My Voyage to Italy (2001) A very personal journey which risks to be misleading to those who think the movies picked up for examination by Scorsese are the most influential in Italian cinema. Maybe abroad they were, but I think that the main genre of italian cinema was the comedy. It is the comedy that kept, and still keeps, the italian cinema alive or about. Scorsese's opinions are just about right (especially his appreciation of I vitelloni) except in his evaluation of Visconti, especially when he liquidates his masterpiece Bellissima as a minor effort. But that it is not surprising, as that movie is both a comedy, where you have to appreciate the shades of the languages spoken by the characters, and it makes fun of neorealism to boot. 8/10

Edge of Darkness (2010) Mediocre Mel Gibson thriller with not an ounce of originality and with an improbable and slow-moving, almost actionless plot. 4/10

Starship Troopers (1997) Read the novel too long time ago, will have to return to it. I don't remember there were two beautiful girls like the ones here, but that was for the best as the action in the movie gets slowed down, as it is only to be expected, especially in the first part.  Still it's a good time-waster, with lots of winks to Kubrick's FMJ, Vietnam's TV coverage and USA jingoistic rhetoric.  7/10

The mid 80s British mini series it's based on, also called 'Edge Of Darkness', is way better.

Yes, that one was pretty good. Great roles for Bob Peck and Joe Don Baker. Directed by Martin Campbell, later director of 2 of the best Bond movies. 9/10

The Mel Gibson film is ok, not more. 5/10
