Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia - 4/5

Out of all the Peckinpah's films I have seen, this is certainly my favorite out of all of them.

Yeah, it's one of these films that you cannot find in France if you're not actively trying to see it. The english version wasn't even available on iTunes and the like until recently (I checked regularly and they only had the French version).

I liked it a lot, the characters are just too stupid and mediocre for me to really care about them, hence the 8/10 instead of a higher ranking. But yeah, it is great. And cute. And fun.

I saw your link in the movie thread and responded rightly to it.

Hardcore (1979) 3/5 (4/5 with audio commentary)

Enjoyable.

The Happiest Day In The Life Of Olli Mäki (2016) 8/10

The cutest box film ever, about the boxer preparing for a game he couldn't care less about.

I went to see it based on an advice by moviesceleton (who knows the director), and it was damn good. The sharp direction shines in gorgeous 16mm and every single character is shown with obvious empathy. The way the film knows how to use ellipses and perfectly times when to enter a scene is amazing. I have very few complains, about  2 scenes, that, unfortunately, were important.

Cool OST (you can hear it in the trailer).

Watch it, most of you guys are going to love it.

Anyone have suggestion for a good drama in theaters now, other than SULLY? (I am planning on going to theater this week and not sure if SULLY is playing at any times that work for me.) Any good recommendations? Thanks  Smiley

The Laughing Policeman (1973) - 9/10. One third of the Matthau Crime Trilogy that begins with Charley Varrick and ends with The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3. A policier extraordinare, this was filmed on location in SF (and only on locations--not a studio shot in the whole piece). Not only Matthau, but Bruce Dern, Anthony Zerbe, Lou Gossett, and Val Avery are on board. Joanna Cassidy has two scenes.  SPOILER The policeman never smiles END SPOILER. The new Blu-ray looks wonderful. Flesh tones are immaculate.This is a world where teal and orange are unknown.  Nothing like the crap they make now.

The Laughing Policeman (1973) An excellent police procedural until the last 20 minutes, when the plot device of solving the case by putting pressure on the culprit it's quite childish (I can't remember if the novel had a better solution). Also, the choice of SF as the locale is not very lucky, I think, as the seedy side of the city which is shown to great effect it would have suited NYC better. Still you have great performances (when I read the Martin Beck cycles, before watching this movie, I actually pictured MB in my mind to be something like Matthau) but it's Dern as the a...e policeman who gets high kudos. Zerbe shows why he can't play boss, and Matt Clark and Clifton James play welcome short appearances. 7\10   

So I have to assume you liked the last 20 minutes and the SF locale.

I docked a point for the last 20 minutes which were, I agree, a bit disappointing. Otherwise I would have given the film a 10. I have never seen a better film about the dynamic between police partners. Matthau and Dern are just phenomenal. And they do it without being cute, even once.

Sully (2016) 7/10

Decent job with not-very-interesting material.

The emergency landing/heroism is interesting material and enjoyable to watch, but the storyline of the second-guessing by the Federal Aviation Administration to me just is not very exciting material.

Real life is like that. I understand they phony-ed up the FAA stuff, just to add some drama. Apparently (I haven't seen the film), it didn't work.

Now if it had been revealed that Sully was actually a killer cyborg . . .  Cheesy

Most of the movie is about the second-guessing by the FAA.

The plane incident is supposed to be incredibly accurate. Problem is, you can't make an entire movie out of an incident that took just a few minutes (208 seconds betwen when the birds hit the engines and when the plane landed in the water. Less than half-hour till all passengers were rescued by boats. So most of the movie shows the FAA investigation and then the actual plane ibcident is shown in flashback. Just doesn't lend itself to being a great movie script. Eastwood did a decent job with not-great material. It'a worth renting/streaming and watching once for the re-creation of the plane stuff, but not spending $15 on a Manhattan theater ($30 for me and the babe!)

Yeah, the theater prices keep rising. I saw this at City Cinemas on East 86th St and 3rd Avenue. $15 a ticket. You can usually buy a DVD for that price or a BRD for a little more.
