Hot Fuzz (2017) - 8/10
Don't know how it took me so long to watch this, but it's easily my favorite Edgar Wright movie (now seen them all besides Fistful of Fingers). I liked it so much that I might even consider giving his horrible Scott Pilgrim a third try.

EDIT: N_L I noticed that Arrow is releasing Fistful of Fingers newly restored on Blu Ray this year. I'll hold out for that instead of finding a torrent

Good boy! Hot fuzz in definitely the easiest Wright film. I always say it's his GBU: that's the film where he perfected his style while keeping everything light and entertaining. THe result is that everybody likes Hot Fuzz. Scott Pilgrim is his OUATITW: he got ambitious.

I have never seen Fistful of Fingers either. I also still have to finish Spaced (I have the DVD).

Polar (2019): Mads Mikkelsen is a hitman about to retire, but his boss Matt Lucas wants him dead to claim his pension funds, and sends his 'A-team' (yes really) to take care of business. Mikkelsen is a natural bad-ass, and the movie has a few entertaining set pieces but overall it's a poor The Punisher meets Shoot 'Em Up meets Léon rip-off. 5/10

"I Accuse" by Jose Ferrer, 1958.

About 1/2 mile from me are streets named Dreyfuss and Emile Zola.

Pretty pretentious for Arizona, no?

Colombiana (2011) - 10/10. It's hard to beat the thumbnail at IMDb: "She works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target - the mobster responsible for her parents' death."La Femme Nikita for a new generation, with Olivier Megaton (under the guidance of Luc Besson) hitting all the terms of the action film. But the execution is flawless. You Will Believe That a Tired Formula Can Get Up Off It's Ass and Dance Swan Lake. And Zoe Saldana is a real honey.
Saw this again and enjoyed it. Maybe I scored it a little high last time, but it is essentially a Luc Besson film that is shorter than all other Luc Besson films so deserves special recognition.

A Scanner Darkly (2006) - 10/10. Greatest film ever. Well, er, okay, wouldja believe: Greatest animated film ever? It's got acting, plot, humor, poignancy. . . . stuff absent from Japanimation, Pixar, Disney. A cartoon for adults, if you will (but not an"adult cartoon"). I guess it helps if you like the rotoscoped cast: Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Whatshisname, Winona Ryder. And about a thousand bit players. The Radiohead songs and the Graeme Revell score really cement the deal.

Also Voltaire and Joan of Arc near those.

You'd think it would be more Western-y

The Favourite (2018): Emma Stone makes a play for Rachel Weisz's position, as queen Olivia Colman's best friend, and counsil. Filled with dark humor and fish eye lenses, it is very entertaining but it also favors style and extravagance over substance. 7/10

Close (2019): Noomi Rapace gets hired as a temporary bodyguard for Sophie Nélisse... and of course that is when shit hits the fan. Derivative thriller that starts off well but soon loses steam. I love Rapace but she can't save this movie. 6-/10

Great, actually in the best films style is the substance.

The Darjeeling Limited (2007) - 5/10. Anderson makes the classic mistake: by alluding to a host of better films, he reminds the viewer of what he should be watching instead. Here the allusions are all sonic: we get snippets of the scores from Merchant Ivory films and those of Satyajit Ray. On the Criterion Blu-ray there is actually an extra where Anderson chats with James Ivory about all the borrowings, with the images they originally accompanied. Suddenly, I couldn't get the disc out of my player fast enough so that I could replace it with some world class cinema. Thanks, Anderson!
