Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus - 1/10 - A pretty big let-down. The shark and octopus only fought for about ninety seconds.

yeah it coulda been FMC; I don't remember for certain. come to think of it, the picture quality was pretty bad, so good chance it was indeed FMC; they are still not in HD (shouldn't there be a thumbs-down?)...

Old Guard (1934) The movies made during fascism and nazism with an overtly propagandisting content can be counted on half a hand's fingers. This is probably the only one made in Italy about fascism (probably the only one after the introduction of sound) and it is astonishingly good in spite of the subject of course thanx to the director (Visconti's fans can watch him in Bellissima playing the director). It has a nervous rhythm, it concentrates more on the characters than their policies and, in spite of some blatant lies, it is entertaining. 7\10

Tora! Tora! Tora! - 7/10 - 2nd viewing. I liked this more than I remembered doing, but it's still very dry and talky for most of its length. The film's balance is admirable, even if it makes the Japanese look better (save Tojo) than the Americans. On the other hand, the battle scenes at the end are amazing.

I found Tora dull and dry as toast, but it's been ages since I've seen it.

Well, apparently you must be following my reviews and revising your recollections of judgements.

A River Runs Through It (1992) 10/10

One of my favorite all-time movies. I must have seen it 20 times, but I don't believe I have written about it on this thread, so I finally decided to write about it.

CAST (courtesy of imdb)

Craig Sheffer    ...   Norman Maclean
    Brad Pitt    ...   Paul Maclean
    Tom Skerritt    ...   Rev. Maclean
    Brenda Blethyn    ...   Mrs. Maclean
    Emily Lloyd    ...   Jessie Burns
    
 
Notice that Brad Pitt received second-billing.
Tom Skerritt is so friggin' spectacular as Rev. Maclean, I don't know how he didn't even get an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor.


The film, directed and narrated by Robert Redford, is based on the semi-autobiographical novella of the same name by Norman Maclean. The story is about Norman and his brother Paul growing up in rural Montana during the early part of the 20th century, under the watchful eye of their father, a Presbyterian minister. The men of the family share a love of fly fishing, which sort of becomes a metaphor for the lessons of life.

The movie won an Oscar for Best Cinematography, and was nominated for two additional Oscars: Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score. The score by Mark Isham is absolutely amazing; I listen to it on my iPod all the time. The scenery of rural Montana is stunning. And the narration by Redford, who has an incredible voice, adds so much to the film as well.

So... if you haven't seen this film yet (or even if you have!) watching it should be the next thing you do, after breathing  O0 O0

The Panic in Needle Park (1971) Pacino's debut, I had missed it for many years, something not to regret. The stories, quite unoriginal, of a couple of junkie lovers. The main problem lies with the actors: they both look quite healthy, especially Pacino (in his maybe worst performance) and no element in their playing does anything to persuade you that, up to that moment, they had ingested anything worser than light coke. I haven't seen many movies about junkies, but even rather corny ones like Hatful of Rain, Man with a Golden Arm or Trash manage to convey some of the drama of being addicted which here is totally absent. In the credits we are guaranteed that the movie was entirely shot in NYC, but Cigar Joe can save the effort as little is seen of the town. 5\10

One Down Two to Go (1982) Why did I spend 1 euro for this piece of crap? Probably only because of the actors. And even because I hoped to see an over the top product. But this puts you to sleep except for some Brown's delivery. The first minutes, with real scenes from martial arts exhibitions at the Garden are good. Lots of pretty girls but none undressed (so it becomes a minus). A good disco score (courtesy of Stanley Clarke). 3\10

Hanna - Joe Wright

A few more words about it:

This is an amazing film.
One of the best action movies of the last 10 years, and one with a very intelligent concept of filming the action, and having the action ruffianly pushed through by the brutish electro-rock score of The Chemical Brothers as part of a thoughtful narrative structure combining realism with the innocent charm of a fairy tale to tell a clever story with interesting characters.
And Saoirse Ronan is fantastic in the lead and makes the great-as-always Cate Blanchet and Eric Bana look comparatively pale.
Mesmerizing  10/10
