Mrs. Cusser picked out "Anyone But You" on Netflix for us to watch last night.  We quit at about the half-hour mark, this had to be the most-contrived, most-cliche "romantic 'comedy' " ever.  Apparently this Sidney Sweeney is considered a hot actress these days, but came across as a short cute blonde with big boobs only semi-adept at the farce comedy stuff, the kind of stuff Goldie Hahn, Kristin Wiig, or Meg Ryan could've pulled off when younger. 

Guess who was a producer?  Sidney Sweeney. 

So I'd rate 2/10.  The film grossed over $200 million worldwide, amazing......shows the "sophistication" of some folks these days....

Basil Rathbone was an excellent swordsman in real life, added authenticity.  He had some great duels with Errol Flynn in "Captain Blood" and "Adventures of Robin Hood", both great films, both must-see. Back in the 1970s before VHS tapes/rentals, these often played as double feature at local theaters which specialized in classic and cult films.

Flynn was very athletic, and learned decent swordsmanship pretty quickly, but Rathbone was better.

"The big duel between Powell and Rathbone is marvelous". (Garfield). Agreed: it's the best one I ever saw on the screen for the very simple reason that the two make the fastest swords movements ever.  Garfields rating:"...good entertainment for the kiddies". Maybe for the kids who couldn't watch the Disney series which is still the best Zorro stuff on screen. Yes, there wasn't a Rathbone, But Williams wasn't worse than Power and Bernardo and Sgt. Garcia made all the difference. Here Linda Darnell looks a female, surely less bovine than in later years. But Garfield writes this is "in color". The dvd isn't and when I saw it eons ago on tv we didn't have the national program aired in color over here :-[.  6-7/10

UHD discs won't play on a blu-ray player. You need a UHD player, as well as a 4K TV to view in 4K.
That rules me out - TWICE !!!!

If you get a uhd player, get one that is region-free. It will cost more but you can play anything on it. Any uhd, brd, or dvd from any region.

(I am trying to be careful and not use contractions because of the damn apostrophe issue  >:D)

I'm a Tech Idiot, still have a Flip Phone but I have updated to Windows 10 within the last year.

I have a Sony Blu-Ray disc player, at least a decade old (don't have the model number available right now).  So do UHD discs play on this or am I a decade behind?
