The Reckoning (1971) - 8/10. Nicol Williamson play a Liverpudlian who, transplanted to London, is on the rise in the corporate world. The beating death of his father sends him back home on a quest for revenge. That successfully accomplished, he finds that his new ruthlessness--and he wasn't exactly a choir boy to begin with--makes him an even better competitor in the Boardroom Jungle. Liverpool, at the time the ugliest city in Europe, is lovingly filmed, and director Jack Gold gives Williamson's vicious character plenty of sympathy. At the end Williamson makes a death-defying gesture and comments, "If I can get away with that, I can get away with anything!" It's truly an inspirational moment. [Warning: Caustic Irony in play throughout.]

Not sure. I'm guessing he took film roles to pay the bills; theater was the only thing he really cared about. And now, because of his--according to the bio at IMDb--obnoxious personality, no one wants to work with him anymore.

Try a third viewing. Maybe you can get your score down below "5."

Glory - 9/10 - 5th viewing. For my money, this is far and away the best Hollywood film on the Civil War. It achieves the right mixture of authenticity and drama that few of its peers have. The attack on Ft. Wagner is pretty high on my list of all-time great battle scenes and the score is amazing. Broderick is fine, Washington and Freeman were never better, Andre Braugher has a nice role, good smaller parts for John Finn and Cliff de Young - Cary Elwes is the only negative for me.

High Plains Drifter - 7/10 - 2nd viewing. I remembered hating this one so I was surprised to find it decent enough this time around. Mostly it's a film of moments rather than a compelling whole, though.

S.O.S. Submarine (1941) Generally considered as the first neorealistic italian movie, this still  holds well. Actually I much prefer this to some overrated movie like Open City or even some parts of Paisan, as it is devoid of artificial melodramatic effects which are present in those two Rossellini's movies. Apart from that, if you like submarines movies this is an absolute must as it was shot entirely in a real submarine with real crew members. 7\10

The Shadow (1994) I never read the Maxwell Grant pulps or heard the OTR episodes, so I have no preconceived idea about what the character should look like and act like. But the movie is very entertaining, much more than some Batman episodes, with good pace and plot twists. 7\10

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea 10/10 (I've lost count how many times I saw this)
an absolute masterpiece. incredible 1954 special effects; amazing performances all around:

James Mason as Captain Nemo
Kirk Douglas  as Ned Land
Paul Lukas as Prof. Puerre Aronnax
Peter Lorre  as Conseil

MUST-WATCH!!!

The Thin Man - 7/10 - The Nick and Nora banter is great. Too bad about the rest of the film.
