One Minute to Zero (1952) Quite uneven Korea war flick, too larded up with love story between Mitchum and pretty Ann Blyth, completely disposable. Some battle scenes reminded me of western shot in the roman country. Still a couple of scenes (the exodus and Hamilton Burger's finale) make a vision viable. 6/10

What irritated me most though was that Simmons got the Oscar that should have gone to Anton Walbrook or whoever else  for the same role.
wow, titoli finally said something in this thread that's true!

Mill of the Stone Women (1960) Boring italian horror. I hoped the french version had some nudity of Scilla Gabel, but apparently no foreign version was prepared. So no reason to watch it. 4/10

The Sunshine Kid (1975) They gave the Oscar to Burns, but the performance is by Matthau: Burns does little, Matthau's is one of his masterpieces. The movie gets 8/10 just for Matthau.

Time Without Pity (1957)  The plot cannot be taken seriously: I presume it took very little time to put it on paper. For the first half hour it is interesting, as Losey makes something  out of some scenes helped by a good Redgrave (see the fellinian visit to the vaudeville theatre with a ridiculous Plowright). But then the plot becomes boring untl the incredible, moronic finale and the very bad performance of McKern does require a great force of will to make it to the end. Miss Moneypenny does not enchant me as she will some years later. 5/10

Angel (1937) Visually perfect, with a couple, maybe three Lubitsch touches (most memorable: the veal steaks). Actors perfect, Dietrich still looking gorgeous. Still the stuff is really thin, making a mountain out of a molehill. 7/10

Dennis the Menace (1993) Only people happy with this crap were surely the bookies who gobbled up all Matthau's earnings. 2/10

Boss of Bosses (2001) Same story as above but from the other POV. These movies make you wanna to know better the real facts and characters. It is strange though that it seems the story of Castellano reminds one of Godfather I and II: reality following fiction. 6/10

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) Funny no-brainer with no characters, good action scenes but as usual too long. 8/10

Crime Inc (1984) The only fault I find in this 6 hours British documentary is that 30 years have passed. Still some interview, some videos, mand old newsreel make this required reading for everyone interested in the matter. 8/10

Le beau mariage (1982) A movie built on little which delivers even less. The to main characters have little, if any, solidity: if they behaved like they were adults instead of early teenagers (assuming there are still goofy teenagers like these two) there wouldn't be any movie. Main point of attraction is Arielle Dombasle. 5/10

La femme de l'aviateur (1981) Talk, talk, talk. I give it 6 only because of the Paris landscape.

Jason and the Argonauts (1963) Not the best Harryhausen I think: I prefer the Sinbad. But the Talos scene is probably his best ever and it compares easily with any of King Kong. 7/10
