As Tears Go By (1988) - 7.5/10
SPOILER
My DVR fucked up once again and stopped recording when the protagonist is lying on the ground and has just been shot in the head. Does it end there? I watched an "alternative" ending on Youtube but what's the official ending?

Haven't been on in a while, but here I am.
I haven't been watching movies consistently lately, but I did see most of Pollock on TV. I thought Ed Harris did an admirable acting job, and the film was really well done, but unfortunately I still don't see the value in Pollock's art. Still, I'd watch it a second time, but not anytime soon.

I like Harris, and I liked Pollock. Hell, it provides another chance to look at Jennifer Connelly. As far as Pollock's art, well, I like it, although with the same equipment I'm pretty sure I could turn out comparable work.

I don't think anything else happens after that but I've only seen it once.

The Sandlot - 7/10 - I hadn't seen this since I was a kid, when I watched it every other week (or so it seemed). It instills the same feeling of nostalgia and affection that Stand By Me seems to for a lot of people - not that I can relate 100% to the characters and events (though our neighborhood did play a lot of pick-up baseball games back in the day), but that it does a near-perfect job of representing childhood. Lots of silly, innocent fun, and I was pleasantly surprised that I still enjoy it.

I agree but I feel Stand By Me is a better movie, though I relate to both for different reasons.

Sandlot: My friends and I played baseball every single day as 9/10 year olds.

Stand By Me: Those journeys/adventures as kids, though we never searched for a corpse--my biggest regret.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

I liked Dirty Harry a lot although it's dated and the message is somewhat questionable. Haven't bothered with the sequels.

The first sequel isn't bad.

Carve Her Name With Pride - 8/10 - Pretty good WWII espionage flick wtih Virginia McKenna as real-life Brit spy Violette Szabo. Directed by Lewis Gilbert, who did HMS Defiant and various Bond flicks, it's a fairly restrained, gritty and dark film that avoids most of the expected genre cliches, with only two action scenes, fairly modest heroics and a grim, understated finale. McKenna gives a wonderfully subdued performance, pretty but not glamorous, mundane yet heroic, easily carrying the film. A "young" Paul Scofield looks and sounds as craggy as usual, Noel Willman is a slimy Gestapo man, Jack Warner and Billie Whitelaw have good supporting roles, and Michael Caine has a bit part. Definitely worth a look.

Huh. I recently got the War Trilogy and started going through it. Rome Open City was OK, nothing special, and Paisan I couldn't finish. I never got to Germany: Year Zero, but maybe now I should jump ahead and try it. I like the fact that it's got the restored German audio track.
