  1. El Inconveniente (One Careful Owner). 2020. Bernabé Rico. Spain. Comedy, drama. A no-nonsense businesswoman (Juana Acosta) buys an apartment as an investment, but she cannot move in until the no-nonsense old woman (Kiti Mánver) who owns the apartment dies. Very good movie. Bernabé Rico's direction is smart and witty, finding depth in even the silliest situations. Rico and Juan Carlos Rubio wrote the screenplay based on Rubio's successful stage play 100 sq. m, and the adaptation is excellent. The performances are good throughout the movie. Kiti Mánver and Juana Acosta give ex
  2. I agree it's not very well made, but I enjoyed it, especially because like you said, Katherine Ross is always a good reason to sit through any movie.
  3. Every tie when we came to the US our parents encouraged us to watch TV so that we could be familiarized with English and learn as many words as we could. Saturday morning cartoons were a must, and sometimes during the day I would watch some shows about vampires in mansions, witches twitching their noses, even some game shows. I didn't understand much, so I usually lost interest pretty soon and turned off the set. I also watched a lot of old movies, mostly low budget horror and science fiction. One of the fondest memory I have of going to the movies is the time I took my younger brot
  4. I liked Wolfen, and I would like to see it again. I'ts been a long time. I thought it is an interesting take on werewolves and crime.
  5. Carole Lombard. At first I thought she was too frantic, too eager to please. Now I've learned to appreciate the energy she brought to her roles.
  6. Susan Hayward was in The Honey Pot with Rex Harrison
  7. Bob Hope. I get tired of his one-liners after a while. I've never been a fan of Norma Shearer and Tyrone Power, but I can still enjoy some of their movies. Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy on the other hand, are two performers that I never liked, and it also has something to do with the kind of movies they made. Of today's actors, Tom Cruise, Will Smith, and Leonardo DiCaprio come to mind.
  8. The Wave (Bølgen). 2015. Norway. Thriller. Directed by Roar Uthaug. With Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp, Jonas Hoff Oftebro, and Edith Haagenrud. A geologist warns his teammates that a massive landslide that can flood the area may happen soon. This is an excellent disaster movie. It is also very humane. The movie smartly focuses on its characters, allowing us to get familiar with them and care about them when they are in peril. Technically, The Wave is topnotch. The collapse of the fjord and the following tsunami are amazingly recreated. The especial effects, cinematography, and se
  9. Demon. 2015. Poland. Directed by Marcin Wrona. With Itay Tiran, Agnieszka Zuliewska, and Andrzej Grabowski. A bridegroom is possessed by a spirit during his wedding celebration. The doctor and the priest are unable to help the young man, and the father-in-law tries desperately to keep the party going on. It is refreshing to watch a modern horror movie without noisy jump scares. Demon is a clever movie with comedy and some absurd scenes mixed with atmospheric horror, greatly helped with a crisp photography.
  10. The Time of Your Life with Father
  11. Un Cuento Chino (Chinese Take-Away). 2001. Argentina/Spain. Comedy. Directed by Sebastian Borensztein. With Ricardo Darín, Huan Sheng Huang (credited as Ignacio Huang), and Muriel Santa Ana. A lonely and gruff owner of a hardware store helps a stranded Chinese young man, who doesn't speak a word of Spanish, find his family in Argentina. I found this movie online by accident and I liked more than I thought I would. It has a good screenplay, it's well directed, and both Darín and Huang give very good and funny performances.
  12. On my way back home the same station played Manhattan Transfer, one of my favorite groups.
