The Nile Hilton Incident (2017) 7/10
Inspired by true events, this true neo noir (I'm looking at you CJ) closely follows the classic murder investigation in a corrupt environment storyline (actually too closely for my taste for a 2017 film). The great idea here is to put the whole story at the beginning of the Arab Spring, elevating the film to another league and using the Film Noir template to showcase how the Eyptian power is rotten from its first level to the very top.

One of My Wives Is Missing (1976): James Franciscus is on honeymoon in a small town with his wife, but she goes missing after a quarrel. Local police inspector Jack Klugman thinks nothing much of it, especially not after the wife, Elizabeth Ashley, returns. Except Franciscus insists she's not his wife. Solid TV movie with plenty of twists (and a few holes) along the way. 7+/10

One of several adaptations of a stage play (Hitchcock was interested in it as well but it never panned out), this one's available on youtube as well as a later version with Elliott Gould called 'Vanishing Act'.

Jamaica Inn (1939). A fun movie, received a fabulous restoration from the BFI. Charles Laughton hams it up, but damn, he's entertaining.

Black Hawk Down 7.5/10
Rewatch after rewatch, this is still the best US Army commercial.

Saving Private Ryan is a better film (8 to 8.5/10), but a worst commercial: the main idea I get from this movie is "war is terrible, hopefully you might find a way to make some kind of sense out of it". Black Hawk Down shows you that "No one is left behind" and that in the US army everybody is your trusty friend.

Dead Of Night (1945): A collection of supernatural stories wrapped inside a beautifully constructed narrative frame. Aside from one rather misplaced comedic story, it's quite the eerie movie that builds up to a clever and excellent end/twist. 7+/10 (8+ if it hadn't been for the damn golfers).

I haven't seen BLACK HAWK DOWN in about 15 years, but as I recall, it also shows how deadly war can be, and how even civilian populations - whom you think will welcome you as liberators - may be against you.

You're talking about Black Hawk Down? These things are the movie but it really isn't the main idea (especially since the last shots showcase a very friendly and welcoming population). The camaraderie is what takes 80% of the screen time and makes the movie worth rewatching.

About how "deadly" war can be: less than 20 US soldiers are killed in the whole movie while several hundreds (the film states "one thousand") Somalis die. What stroke me more during this watch is how professional the US army is while the Somalis are all incredibly amateurish. Even the way they handle their weapon betrays a he fact that they're just random civilians that were given an AK-47 and sent to war without the slightest training. That's the worst thing about war I get from this movie.

Atomic Blonde (2017): John Wick meets Jason Bourne, set in Berlin 1989. Story is by-the-numbers and unsurprising but the action scenes are really well-made (I loved that they went for long takes rather than tons of edited together half-second shots) and the movie looks great (lotsa greys clashing with neon lights). Nice 80s soundtrack as well. 7/10

The Blue Lamp (1950): Britnoir/police procedural following 2 bobbies (Jack Warner & Jimmy Hanley) and 2 young criminals (Dirk Bogarde & Patric Doonan). Terrific movie with gorgeous on-location shots of London and beautiful cinematography. The police are portrayed way too sympathetically (blame British censorship for that), otherwise this is a real gem. 8/10
