Platoon - 9/10 - Brilliant movie, a bit heavy-handed at times (the Nazi flag on the APC? Come on) but on the whole one of the best war movies I've ever seen, and second only to Full Metal Jacket on my list of Vietnam films. Watching this three days after viewing W really highlights how far Oliver Stone has fallen over the last few years.

What a coincidence :o

Wall Street (1987) - 8/10
I very much liked it aside from certain lines that felt forced ("Who am I?" or something like that, to name one).

PS, I very much agree with the lord's rating of Platoon.

Just curious Amaze, where did you get the six-star rating scale?

The Face of Another: 5/5

A re-watch of which I enjoyed even more so the second time round.

My recollection is that the interweaving of the two plots doesn't work well. One story is interesting, the other considerably less so. Or something. It's been a while since I've seen it.

Topaz - 7\10. Got the dvd and this time it worked better than the other two times I saw it (first one in a theatre) but still it remains unsatisfactory. I am still left with a sense of claustrophoby when confronted with the discrepancy of the scope of the movie (with a supposed change of many locations) and the  fact that it is mocstly shot in interiors and even open air sequences like the hotel one are made in the studio. But the thing that most intrigued me is that this might have worked as an inspiration for Tinker Taylor, a work that should be compared with this to great advantage. Not just the novel (arguably the best spy novel ever) but the Alec Guinness mini-series. I think here you have all Hitchcock was striving for and didn't attain. expecially the relationship (left in the clouds) between Stafford, his wife and Piccoli.
Very interesting the three finales. That Hitchcock may shoot (I don't know if he was he who devised it or it was in the novel) a ludicrous piece like the duel it's almost incredible. But the finale at the airport, with Piccoli waving at the Stafford's was almost just as bad.  The finale which made it to the theatres it is the best thing of the movie with the scene of Dor's killing. Anyway this can't be compared to Frenzy and Family Plot, two works that put Hitchcock just under Bunuel as to artistic longevity.

You gave Topaz a 7/10 and you call it unsatisfactory? I've seen you give 5 and 6's in at least partially complementary reviews. ::)

I give it a low 8, and there are several brilliant scenes - I think you also have to mention the great opening sequence in Copenhagen, and Roscoe Lee Browne's big scene. It's one of the more intelligent and interesting spy flicks I've seen, even though it's undoubtedly unfocused and cluttered (I didn't like any of the three endings, to be honest). It's certainly miles better than drek like Torn Curtain and The Trouble With Harry.

Actually the contrast works wonderfully.
