The Adventures of Robin Hood - 7-8/10 - Another pretty straightforward adventure film with the great Errol Flynn. Gorgeous use of Technicolor, nice direction and cast. The swordfights in this film amd The Sea Hawk are beyond pretty much anything I've seen since the 1970's - when did Hollywood forget how to swashbuckle? Maybe some okay swordfighting in the Pirates of the Caribbean films but most of them are too schematic for my taste.

Mindhunters (2004) - 5/10

Hollywood pop corn masher with basically every accompanying good and bad thing.

Bad For Each Other (1953) - 4/10. Charlton Heston is the talented surgeon who has sold out to become a Dr. Feelgood to Pittsburgh society (say, what?). Lizabeth Scott is the hedonistic heiress for whom he has surrendered his ideals. Dianne Foster is the pretty nurse who still believes that Dr. Heston will eventually find his way. Then there's mom, waiting back in the mining town the doc has left behind. Hokum, but hokum that doesn't give nearly the pleasure it should. Another mediocre film marketed as a noir just to get it a 21st Century audience. Totally miss-able.

Still of the Night (1982) - 2/10. A shrink (Roy Scheider), whose patient has been murdered, goes back through the victim's tape-recorded sessions hoping to find a clue to the killer. This leads him to the chief suspect (Meryl Streep), to whom he feels an immediate and near obsessive attraction. Faux Hitchcock, indifferently done. http://www.hulu.com/watch/123471/still-of-the-night

Darkman and Darkman II 7\10 to both these nobrainers because they have fast, uncluttered narrative rhythm. And Larry Drake is a good villain.

Courtesy of TCM, rewatches of True Grit (4th viewing) and The Shootist (3rd), both 8/10's. Grog thoughts can be read here: http://nothingiswrittenfilm.blogspot.com/2010/02/true-gritthe-shootist.html

Not bad, although you miss the obvious advantage True Grit has over most other Westerns: its language. The characters don't sound like people from 1969, the year the film was made, they talk the way people talked during the Rutherford B. Hayes administration. Or at least near enough for us to suspend our disbelief on the matter.

Finding Forrester (2000) - 2/10

''Good Will Forrester'' is truly, truly, odious.

Yea I truly hate Gus Van Sant, and not even just for Finding Forrester.

Cape Fear '92
- uhh very campy and Hollywood but honestly a lot better than I remembered it. What I used to think as Scorsese's very worst is now...maybe, bottom 5 worst? Not really a good or ultimately rewarding film, but all around entertaining. De Niro's performance, which Robert Mitchum absolutely shit on 30 years ago, is simply fun to watch. But I'd take this over Boxcar Bertha, The Color of Money, Who's That Knocking, or Casino any day.

The Road - second viewing still holds up. 2nd best film of '09, right behind A Serious Man. Completely snubbed at award shows - fuck 'em!
