Re: Olive - March Releases

Well, KILL ME AGAIN was a pretty decent noir from John Dahl (what has he done lately) and BANDITS is one of those films that has really good moments right next to ones that make you shake your head.

And JINXED is a movie that lives down to its name....

Re: PEANUTS - Fox/Blue Sky Animated Movie - 2015

I think the Monster Cable disc is based off an earlier edition, because I know I purchased it while I was still living in Los Angeles, and I left there in early 2012. What I like about the multi-channel version is that you have a choice of the ambiance while listening-small jazz club, concert hall, ...

Re: PEANUTS - Fox/Blue Sky Animated Movie - 2015

I was a huge fan of the strip when I was a kid (had tons of the books and a few hardcovers), never missed the TV specials and loved A BOY NAMED CHARLIE BROWN when I saw it on the big screen (although I thought that, with the exception of the title tune, that McKuen's songs were just OK). I also had ...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

Never had any trouble whatsoever understanding anything that was going on-perhaps the Coens were able to keep the dialogue sharp with their touches. In no way would I characterize this film as "dry." I think so many of us have become so used to fast paced cutting and dialogue in the past 20 years th...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

BRIDGE OF SPIES: 8.5/10 Spielberg and Hanks team up again (SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, THE TERMINAL) for this film based on the true story of Jim Donovan, who first defended a man suspected of being a Soviet spy (Mark Rylance-wonderfully droll) then was asked to negotiate the return of...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

Since the film expanded into more theaters it did do a bit better in its second weekend, so I am not giving up on it yet. Also, considering that it cost $35M and has already made about 1/3 of that back, don't lose hope, MJ. :)

Re: rate the last movie you saw

THE WALK: 8.5/10 Even though I know the outcome of this story, for the last 40 minutes I was literally cringing in my theater seat watching this extraordinary work from Robert Zemeckis, and not only has he made his best film since CAST AWAY and to a lesser extent, FLIGHT, but he has made one of the ...

Re: Twilight Time - Nov/Dec Titles Announced

If the Garner SUPPORT double-feature is their normal price, that is one I will pre-order, and to have Elmer Bernstein's score for HAWAII as an isolated track would make that a worthwhile purchase (even if Max von Sydow's character is one of the more despicable ones in 60's cinema).

Re: rate the last movie you saw

Saw four films the previous weekend... MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE-ROGUE NATION: 7.5/10 Pretty damn good entry in the Tom Cruise spy series-not quite as good as GHOST PROTOCOL but damn close, with Simon Pegg given a bit more to do in this entry (sadly, Ving Rhames is given less to do) and a pretty good femm...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

Thank you, Eric, for the correction on Cady-those Paul Henning shows all kind of run together for me after a while (I recall some crossover shows towards the end of their runs) although I do still enjoy GREEN ACRES somewhat surreal touches. Many people here know my political viewpoints, and even I r...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

Over the past few weeks I have watched a bunch of stuff and instead of long reviews thought I would just do some capsule ones: INDEPENDENCE DAY: 7/10 A film I still enjoy because it never tries to be more than it should, the effects work is still impressive as is David Arnold's score and I still get...

Re: rate the last movie you saw

I remember going with friends to see it expecting another teen sex comedy (the sex scene with the girl who kept saying that she "didn't care" was jaw dropping) and at the end we were both shocked at how it ended and my friends were quite peeved at the way she ended up treating the main character. Ha...
