Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!

I recently watched about 10 Min of the middle of The Pawnbroker. It was terrible pretentious stuff filed with artificial and "meaningfull" dialogues. It all had a painful arty look. Felt like a filmed stageplay.

Well I can't fully agree with that, I thought in the end it failed because of other things.

House of Usher (1960) - 6.5/10

Poe's work is very hard to translate into celluloid; this one climbs up to the upper middle section. Economic directing, good acting (4 people, what the hell am I writing?), some cheap FX every now and then, and that's about it...

* Vincent Price, Mark Damon.

American Gangster (2007) - 7/10

Not but bad but as far from fresh as you can get.

Mulholland Falls (1996) Director: Lee Tamahori, Stars: Nick Nolte, Melanie Griffith, Jennifer Connelly, Chazz Palminteri, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Treat Williams, Daniel Baldwin, John Malkovich, Andrew McCarthy, Louise Fletcher,  Rob Lowe and Bruce Dern. Never seen this before, way better than Gangster Squad, I would even say I like it better than LA Confidential. It got the hats right, has a nice rendition of "Harbour Lights" by Aaron Neville, you gotta love that Buick Roadmaster convertible tooling across the gorgeous desert landscapes and also Jennifer Connelly's bOObs. I guess you gotta find out these things for yourself rather than go by critics, it's the reason I never checked it out. It reminds you of all the LA based crime Noirs. The only fault is Nolte's mumbling, it's hard to understand him at times. Nice score by Dave Grusin 9/10

Witness - 7/10
One of these "cop in isolated community that he doesn't like and then likes as he gets accepted" movies. It always works. Apart from the 80's music. Like always.

It's extremely derivative but still entertaining, so I won't disagree with your rating.

Rewatched The Children's Hour and Victim (third viewing for each?) for a project I'm working on. Will have some more Hitchcock stuff soon.

Just not sure it supports multiple viewings. I give it a 6 for now, I'll see if I ever watch it again (I haven't since my first viewing, in theater).

I very much doubt it does. Certainly not in one piece.

I watched it twice and enjoyed it as much the second time.

Rewatched Spellbound last night. I liked it better than my first viewing, focusing on the stars and style rather than the story.

Secret Window (2004) - 6 to 6.5/10


Strange I never saw this before... Anyhow, cliched all around yet thoroughly enjoyable due to Depp's performance.

Hammett (1982) Director: Wim Wenders based on Joe Gores (novel), with quite the cast, Frederic Forrest, Peter Boyle, Marilu Henner, Roy Kinnear, Elisha Cook Jr., Lydia Lei, Jack Nance,  Royal Dano, Samuel Fuller and Hank Warden. Sort of an alcoholic stupor/dream of a PI flick, enforced by the storybook quality of the Zoetrope Studio sets. The story revolves around Dashiell "Sam" Hammett post Pinkerton during his Black Mask Pulp Fiction writer days, and one last case or is it just another hard boiled tale? Entertaining, streaming on Netflix 7/10

It's worst than the book, which is itself a mediocre King. The book gets 6 at most, the film doesn't get better than 4. I don't remember Depp being good in it but I may be wrong.

Chef - 6.5/10
A fun, lighthearted and generally entertaining movie. A lot of the beginning has to do with the titular chef's desire to break through the formulaic menu and come up with personal, creative foods - the film itself, in contrast, is as formula-driven as possible. Also written by Favreau, most of the more serious dialogue between his character and his son is awfully unconvincing. Twitter plays a big role, that while at first an important and culturally driven aspect, turns into an overdone plot device that begins to feel like an advertisement. Finally, the film is almost completely void of internal or external conflict. It's a fun, easy, safe, happy movie, with characters likable enough where a lot of the really serious flaws can be overlooked through an enjoyable food-porn experience.
