Then what's this about?


 the fact that Rommel was in on one of the plots to kill Hitler in no way proves that he didn't support the Holocaust

Royal Flash - 7/10 - 2nd viewing. This time my main thought was: Why didn't they cast Alan Bates as Flashman instead of one of the bad guys?

Barry Lyndon (1975) - 9/10. First Blu-ray viewing. Wow! You will believe that a painting can move. In fact, since paintings don't talk, I find that by turning the sound off I don't have to listen to Ryan O'Neal's "performance" and can enjoy the pictures even more. And what pictures! WB has really produced the goods this time.

But then you're missing the music score, which by the International Jenkins Rating System should bump the score down at least four points.

I've memorized the score, it rolls along in my head as I watch.

The Three Musketeers (1973) - 8/10 - Really great matinee fun. Lots of bawdy humor, fun fight scenes and an excellent cast: hard to find fault with it, even if the plot is rather slight.

The Four Musketeers - 9/10 - Bigger than the original (I understand it was conceived as a three-hour epic?), with a more serious tone, more complex plot, more well-drawn characters, and a much bigger scope. The slapstick's toned down a bit in favor of acerbic wit: George Macdonald Fraser's handprints are all over this script. Oliver Reed and Faye Dunaway steal the show but everyone's in top form.

I understand there's a new Musketeer film coming out soon, by the director of Resident Evil and in "eye-popping" 3D. Be still, my beating heart.

Eight Men Out - 9/10 - 2nd viewing. The best baseball film ever? I can't think of a better one.

Not quite sure your heart will still beat after that.

The Laughing Policeman (1973)

Hopefully without sounding patronizing, I'd really love to hear why titoli thinks so highly of this movie.

There were subplots (Matthau's family troubles) and even characters (Gossett Jr's role) that are completely dismissed and ignored. At times, you even forget about Matthau's lead character, which is quite an accomplishment. The story doesn't amount to much, especially in its solution and there are way too many pointless interrogation sequences that don't say anything about the characters and/or plot. The characters are paper thin, it takes quite a lot to make Matthau seem uninteresting, but this movie somehow accomplishes that.

San Fransisco has never looked blander and I couldn't even tell you what the score sounded like.

Super 8 (2011) - 3/10. IMAX viewing. I realize it's intended for kids, but this is an awful, awful film. It starts out as The Goonies meets Cloverfield, then morphs into ET/Star Man. There are occasional stabs at humor, but most of the gags are basically about making fun of the 70s (the film is set in 1979). Are today's kids gonna pick up on those digs? Impressive set design is undercut by anachronistic language and what-have-you. Hmm, was bad CGI really available in 1979? And as far as I can remember, the late 70s were entirely free of lens flares (Why does J.J. Abrams imagine that bands of blue light cutting across his images make for an arty signature?) The film does offer one bit of actual entertainment: throughout the story the child heroes are trying to make a zombie film on Super 8 (hence the title). Even as they are discovering the main plot of the film, their project continues in the background. We see several scenes of this film being shot. After the film proper, during the credit roll, the completed zombie film is shown, and it's quite amusing. If Ed Wood had started making films when he was 12, this is what he might have come up with. So the 3 points I'm awarding the movie are really for the film-within-the-film (which is called "The Case").

I'd really love to hear about it too, as I saw the movie some 30 years ago. Probably it was just because of Matthau. Or maybe because this is the best book of the Martin Beck series (I read the whole ten of it). I'll try to catch a dvd.

I didn't mean to put you on the spot, I was just curious to hear your thoughts.

I didn't feel like I was put on the spot. It's just that I saw it so many years ago, on tv, dubbed. So I could even change my mind about it.
