I'd give it a 5.

Lo straniero / The Stranger (1967) - 6/10. An indifferent adaptation of Camus's famous novel. But it's a Visconti with Rotunno photography, so it is not without interest. And it can be streamed, in Italian with English subs, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3yXp4LDVhU

Anything to do with The Magnificent Stranger???

Yes, it is an unofficial remake of FoD.

The Clouded Yellow (1950) Director: Ralph Thomas, starred Jean Simmons, Trevor Howard, Sonia Dresdel, Barry Jones, and Kenneth More. A good British Noir that features a chase over the moors to Lancaster and it's waterfront.  7/10

1941 (1979) - 7/10
As Kubrick said, it's "great, but not funny".

The Jungle Book (2016) - 8.5/10
Best movie of the year so far, and some of the best CGI I've ever seen. Favreau directed a future classic - a kids and family movie not catered to pussies. Excellent voice acting especially from Bill Murray and Idris Elba. The kid is pretty fucking great too to act the whole entire movie with no other humans.

Who sings "The Bare Necessities"? It would be hard to beat Phil Harris's version.

Bill Murray duet with the kid. It doesn't top Harris'. But, the two musical numbers in the movie don't exactly take over their respective scenes. they're more subtle. Christopher Walken does the other song, which is a bit more obvious.

The Come On (1956) Director: Russell Birdwell with stars Stars: Anne Baxter, Sterling Hayden, John Hoyt, Jessi White. Con woman Rita (Baxter) finds love with fisherman Hayden, to the detriment of her partner Kendrick (Hoyt). Baxter is pretty hot 6.5-7/10

nos amours (1983) 7/10. Suzanne (Sandrine Bonnaire) discovers sex at 15 and starts playing musical beds. This, predictably, causes problems at home. Are Daddy issues at the root of her compulsion? (Daddy is played by the film's charismatic director, Maurice Pialat). We never find out. As an example of tranche de vie the film succeeds; however, it all becomes rather repetitive. Pialat sure knows how to cut a picture, though.
I gave the Gaumont Blu another spin last night--fantastic transfer, except for the color grading. No way did this film look like it was shot in 2016 back in 1983. The usual suspects, orange and teal, are annoyingly apparent. Skin tones look great, though.

Jack Reacher (2012) - 7/10

Cruise's performance makes it good. The story's not bad either but hardly anything new. Entertaining.

The Makioka Sisters / Sasame yuki (1983) - 7/10. The trials of a rich merchant family in 30s Osaka. Sumptuous kimonos. Cheesy synthesizer score. The Japanese title means literally "fine snow" but refers to the effect produced when cherry blossoms fall (i.e. the theme of the film is transience). A film worth revisiting now that our cherry trees are in bloom here in Westchester County, NY.

we were discussing Bridge of Spies a little while ago; I mentioned that I had  a problem with the script and would elaborate later on when I had the time. That's now:

This post will contain spoilers:

My problem is that in the second half of the movie, nothing seems to happen. (The problem exists cuz this is a true story, and they have to stick to the truth). Hanks is sent to negotiate for the prisoner exchange, and he negotiates it and they make the exchange. Okay, a minor point that he insist on 2 for 1, playing the East Germans off the Russians, but there really are no twists here at all. This is really straightforward: they send him to do the prisoner exchange, he does it, and that's all. Okay, the set design and costumes and cinematography evoke the era nicely, but there really is nothing exciting in the story. I was waiting for some big twist, something, which I'd expect for a spy movie, but there really was none of that.

so, they negotiate the prisoner exchange, they make the prisoner exchange, and everyone (at least the Americans) live happily ever after. Not very interesting.

The Night Manager (2016) Episodes 1-3. 10/10. Loki (apparently banished to Earth and with his powers withdrawn by All Father Odin) is working in a Cairo hotel as . . . (you'll never guess) . . . the night manager! He gets involved with an Egyptian woman who is mistress to a man who is part of the family who owns the hotel. One night the woman asks Loki to photocopy a secret document--Loki notices it has to do with an arms deal. She asks him to keep the copy in the hotel safe and turn it over to the British government in the event of her untimely death. Loki instead turns it over to an intelligence man he knows in the embassy the very next day. The papers are forwarded to London. Very soon after that, the woman is murdered . . . So begins the latest le Carre. It's a lot of fun, with Hugh Laurie as the charming villain, and lots of intelligence agency infighting, and great locations like Zematt and Mallorca, and a score that sounds like something in the John Barry vein.
