Lock Up (1989) - 7/10

Am I the only one who thinks this is a good movie?

You'd give the movie a 7?
No, your description gets a 7. The movie sucks.

Hiroshima, My Love (1959) - Can't rate/10
I honestly don't know how to rate this movie ??? I'll have to watch it again. Right now I'm speechless.
I sympathize. I've been thinking about this film for 25 years and I still can't quite come to terms with it. Some of it doesn't seem to work: what's up with that faux documentary at the beginning? And the ending is so obscure that it threatens to overthrow all that's gone on before. And there is absolutely no chemistry between the male and female leads. OTOH, what the film does well it does very well indeed, particularly the depiction of French provincial life under the occupation and the treatment meted out to collaborators immediately thereafter. But even more astounding, thanks to Resnais's editing and use of sound, is the sense of one's being able to slip back and forth between memory and the present so effortlessly, also the fact that the past can be every bit as vivid as what we're experiencing now. Probably no other film does a better job of suggesting that time is an illusion . . .

The Pride and the Passion (1956)  8/10  Sinatra does a cheesy Spanish accent and wears a funny wig but I enjoyed it.  Cary Grant is a British officer helping Spanish guerillas transport a huge cannon across Spain to fight Napoleon's forces in Avila.  And Sophia Loren was hot, especially in the dancing scene. >:D

Capricorn One (1978)  7/10  Parts of it stretch imagination and there's some huge plotholes, but it was entertaining.  A Mars landing is secretly called off with the three astronauts put in isolation for months.  When the reentry goes badly with no one on board, the world thinks they're dead.  So what to do...what to do...MURDER of course! ;D

I tried to watch My Name is Nobody today. I saw parts in between when I was sleeping. Awful movie.

Great moments include:

Barbershop intro
Navajo cemetery
Pool table discussion
Fonda vs. The Wild Bunch
The Final Shootout

Great performance:

Fonda

Great soundtrack:

Morricone

It's perfect timing, large one...

To be honest, I didn't like My Name is Nobody as much as I expected either. Somehow it feels confusing.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

I suppose I didn't expect it to be a comedy with badly done speeded up camera work.
I did. MNIN is probably my favorite non-Leone SW.

The Philadelphia Story - 8/10 - In honor of James Stewart's birthday, and the fact that God and Netflix apparently don't want me to watch The Stunt Man anytime soon... Watched this on TCM today. It was a pretty good screwball comedy, although not as frentic and broad as my favorites. Katharine Hepburn is actually growing on me, something which a few pictures ago I'd never had thought possible. :o Stewart is fun although Cary Grant doesn't have a lot to do. It was pretty darn good on the whole, at least enough for an 8.

These two:
1. Fonda vs. The Wild Bunch
2. The Final Shootout
Are extraordinarily underwhelming.
1. Try watching it next time with the sound on
2. You either enjoy the gag with the photographer or you don't

1. Of course I was watching it muted up until now Jenkins! It couldn't possibly be that it was a lame idea and/or poorly executed. :D
2. I found the gag funny, but not enough to commend the scene in question as brilliant.
