I give you credit for tenacity.

Haven't seen this one, but I'd be willing to give it a try:
Blu in da haus!

Well I got the Gaumont DVD but you can watch it if you put in your browser - Chair de Poule 1963

However there's no subtitles but it's an easy story to follow, if you got questions just ask.
Does the Gaumont DVD have subtitles?

And I can see this how?

Wrong thread for a western top 10 I think.

But do we have such a thread? If not we should make one.

The best part was the end with John Ford (David Lynch) that gets a 10/10 the rest yea I'd go with a 7/10.
Dude, major SPOILER!!!

That was something I was glad I didn't know about before I saw it. Just sayin'.

Never seen the original. Never want to. Saw TG: M twice in the theater in IMAX. 10/10 both times.

The Fabelmans (2022) -7/10. The fable man's very own coming-of-age story, as told by Spielberg himself. I wasn't planning on seeing this, but the wife wanted to go to Women Talking. Now, there's no way in hell I'm going to watch something called Women Talking, so I had to find something else at the cineplex to occupy my time while Mrs. J did her thing. The film with the most compatible showtime was The Fabelmans. Hey, I actually enjoyed it a lot. I'm not much of a Spielberg fan--there are maybe 3 of his films I like--but I'll certainly be getting this on blu. Not the best film of last year, by any means (and a bit too close to Wildlife in places), but I found it very entertaining. And it sure smells like an Oscar winner.

When I asked the wife about her film she told me she no longer identifies as a pacifist. WTF?

Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022) - 1/10. Eleven Oscar nominations . . . and it's a complete POS. Hard to believe that Hollywood could produce something worse than Babylon in the same year in which Babylon' was released. But they did it.

Kaili Blues (2015) - 9/10. Does Bi Gan love his endless tracking shots, or what? You will believe that there is a place called China, and that it is stranger than any place imagined in science fiction.

I can't say because, of course, I haven't watched the others, or at least the great part of them. This is the 5th movie based on the Parker character created by Donald Westlake and although the first 2 had Marvin and Duvall playing the lead  (the third one had Jim Brown!; the fourth I have yet to watch) this is the first one which renders justice to the spirit of the series. And Statham, though he may lack the screen presence of the first two, it fits perfectly in the no-frills approach the director and the the script writers have adopted toward the story. The movie is good from the very first shot to the last one; I had feared that JLo might be a minus and instead she adds to the final result (I have read all the series of 27 novels 3-4 years ago, but I can't seem to remember her character: if it was created from the screenplayer kudos to him). The criticisms I could levy toward the movie are very few but they are minor ones and all of them are anyway debatable. So this is 10/10. Visually I don't think this can be considered a neonoir or whatever you may want to call it, but as the story is, of course, noir as can be, I'll be waiting for Judge Cigar to settle the matter.   
titoli has called it. This is the best crime film of the last 20 years, anyway.
