Theatre of Death (1967) Boring, talky as hell, has a couple of scenes (the first "branding" and the death of the killer) which do not manage to justify the viewing. Strangely the italian dvd has Michael Reeves billed as director on the backcover, which was the main reason why I bought it. 3\10

Ball of Fire - 8/10 - Howard Hawks and Billy Wilder are a match made in heaven. It recycles the basic premise and themes of Bringing Up Baby with some gangsters thrown in, but it's so well-put together - and so funny - that one can't complain. Gary Cooper is surprisingly good, his stiff acting style perfect for the straight-man lead. Barbara Stanwyck, of course, dominates with her combination of raw sexiness and tart wit.

Red (2010) - 7/10. Old home week, with all your favorite Old Farts: Willis, Freeman, Malkovich, Mirren, Brian Cox, Richard Dreyfus, James Remar (very briefly), and finally, in two scenes, Borgnine, still crazy after all these years. Lots of gun fights and explosions, of course. The humor doesn't rise much above the level of TV--TV from the 80s, that is. But a pleasant way to waste the better part of 2 hours. Take your folks, they'll love it.

The only reason I might want to see that is Borgnine. And maybe Mirren.

The Exorcist - 7/10 - Hmm... Mixed feelings. It's very well-made, with great direction, fine performances and some really powerful set-pieces. It's not really scary though, and not really my kind of horror; I like my scares a bit more subtle than using a crucifix as a dildo and vomiting green slime everywhere. Plus the plotting's a bit sloppy, with uneven pacing and the useless Lee J. Cobb subplot. So, I don't know, it gets decent marks for being entertaining.

Grog, we all know DJ and you are the same person. May I add that I'm not sure that having several usernames is allowed on this board?

Well, I have proof that Jenkins exists as an independent entity. I don't know if the same can be said of me.

The Last Samurai - 7/10 - About what I was expecting: another riff on Dances With Wolves set in 19th Century Japan. There's a lot to like about this movie, which prevents it from being just a derivative piece of dross: mostly good acting, handsome photography, great period detail and excellent action scenes - especially the gobsmacking final battle. There's some stuff here that's really interesting, especially the political gamesmanship and imperial jockeying, that could have been the focus of a great movie. But of course the majority of the film is predictable "Noble Savage" pap that we've seen far too often before, and there are some annoying style elements to boot (I hated Cruise having a flashback of a sword fight like, thirty seconds after it happened). Plus Cruise is hammy beyond belief, and not in a good way.
