L'amour l'apr├Ęs-midi (1972) I realized this one was the only "conte moral" I had missed. No great thing: certainly the weakest of the six. It starts by playing on the ambiguity of the first 5 but the problem is that the character doesn't know himself what he wants to do: betray the wife or not? 6/10

Impostor (2001) For a cheap production it has very good sets: I think that is the best feature of the flick. I can't remember if I ever read the 6 pages of the original story, but it is apparent that the screenplayers put too much of their own into the story, especially the middle part. That was because after the movie was planned as a short episode they decided to fatten it up to a feature. 6/10

Cube (1997) Good thriller with few frills (the idiot genius, the artificial confrontations. BTW, why the leader kills the doctor? Just because she had hinted to his personal problems? Weak reason). 7/10 or maybe 8/10.

Mars Attacks! (1996) The problem I have with this movie is that I can't decide if the director wanted to make a comic movie or not. If he did, then it is not funny enough and it is overlong. I think the Abrahams bros. would have made a better job. Moderately entertaining. 6/10

Stargate (1994) I had seen it before but remembered only the incredible Jaye Davidson, really upsetting, as he looks from a shot to another attractive and disgusting, handsome and ugly, male and female. Spader is one of the worst amateurs I ever saw: with Michael J. Cox this could have been a much better movie. The story could have done without the usual plot devices (the community in thrall, the romantic involvement etc) but it can be seen a couple of thimes for the special effects. 7/10

eXistenZ (1999) Cronenberg, as usual, starts projecting hi movie by devising the most repellent device for the viewer (in this case a semiorganic schtumpf which can be implanted in a kind of auxiliary asshole to allow for a realistic community  rolegame) and then builds on it a not original playing of reality vs imagination. Less boring than other movies he did, it doesn't get beyond a generous 6/10

There's No Business Like Show Business (1954) Lame plot built around Berlin's songs, some classics and some not. The highlight is Monroe's After You Get What you Want.

Amazing how she masters the phrasing better than most professional singers. She's Hollywood actress number one in my book, mastering both comedy and drama. Audiences, as usual, were ahead of critics who didn't give her credit for her acting ability. Johnny Ray is embarrassing and given a weak number to boot. The rest is okay for the musical numbers. 710

How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) First Cinemascope movie. So-so comedy with a couple of good jokes. The best scenes are the duets of Bacall with Powell (huge, as usual) and Monroe with Wayne. 7/10

The Abyss (1989) An Abyss of boredom, except for the 20 minutes of still good SE. I saw the 170 minutes version. It could have been good at 80'. The idea that aliens could give a f... about what happens to us, since Klaatu gave us the first warning, is ridiculous. In movies the only good alien is a bad alien. 3/10

I could safely assume that you are not a fan of E.T. either.
