Come And Get It (1936),  I caught this after the actors credits rolled it was a meller set at the beginning in the logging camps of Wisconsin with some nice footage of logging opperations,. There was this tall skinny actor with a big moustache and a heavy Scandanavian accent who played Edward Arnold's sidekick partner who looked awfully familiar turns out it was a completely unrecognizeable Walter Brennan who won an Academy Award for best supporting actor in this and I can see why. Also had Joel  McCrea and  Frances Farmer. 6/10

Silent Night Deadly Night 2 - 0/10 - 2nd viewing, and still worth it.

Kung Fu Panda - 7/10 - Made me laugh several times, and the animation was spectacular, but in reality there isn't very much to distinguish it from any number of other animated films - the same message about doing your own thing, etc. that's been hackneyed since Bambi. Quite frankly, I'd rather see an animated film that preached rigid conformity at this point. I think Finding Nemo was the last truly great animated film - well, except for the first half of The Incredibles. A passable waste of 80 minutes, but nothing we haven't seen many, many times before.

My Jeopardy audition is tomorrow morning, so I'll be out for the next few days. See you guys Sunday night(?). O0

Something Evil (1972) - 3/10
A made-for-TV movie by Steven Spielberg. Totally unoriginal in every sense of the word.

The Godfather (1972) - 9.5/10
I was having the most boring Saturday night ever and I noticed this had just began running so I decided to watch it for the nth time. I thought I would never watch it again but there I was sitting and sipping scotch and the three hours went flying. Of course I knew all the scenes by heart. Michael's transformation into what he never wanted to be wasn't as shocking as on the first viewing but the scenes are so well built that you could enjoy them even on their own. This is funny movie in the sense that first you get the big picture and themes and only on further viewings you understand the "plot".

Kiss Me Deadly- 10/10
I've got a problem with this film. With the exception of the nympho hanging out near Paul Stewart's pool, none of the broads in this film are very attractive. A Mike Hammer film with only so-so women? Something doesn't compute here.

The problem is basically Velma. The short-haired girl has got her attraction, though not being very pretty. But Velma, yes, it's a shame.

Velma is the main problem because she has the most screen time, but I don't like the short-haired actress either. And then there's the murdered woman, played by Chloris Leachman fer cryin' out loud! What, was there a good-lookers strike on the week they were casting, so they could only hire scabs?

La Sirčne du Mississippi (1969) - 6/10 Truffaut had his Hitchcock period, his attempt to adapt a couple of stories by Cornell Woolrich (who had provided the inspiration for Rear Window) to see if he could compete with the Master on his own ground. The first of these,The Bride Wore Black, was a quirky tale of revenge set to a Bernard Herrmann score. Less successful was the follow-up, called Mississippi Mermaid in English, and later remade as Original Sin (2001) with Antonio Badass and Angelina Jube-jube Lips. At least the Truffaut version offers us Belmondo and Deneuve, the latter playing a femme fatale for a change. Plenty of Hitchcock quotes are provided, and the plot is a good one, but Truffaut, who had no real stomach for noir-style cirme films, punked out with a really lame-ass ending. Where's the final double-cross, the body left behind? Where's--not to put too fine a point on it--the humanity? Another film I could have saved in the editing  . . .

Oh yes that is the films biggest fault and definitely what set it apart from all the other Hammer films, it is a shame 'caus its I think the best of them all.
