  1. "Kong: Skull Island" ( 2017 ) Recently went to see this movie on its second run. Have never much cared for the King Kong movies, and "monster" films in general I can give or take, but the late Spring-early Summer releases this year have been a bit off. SO... decided to check this film out. Glad I did, an entertaining film this was. Not much in the way of characters...basically a HUGE CGI ape defends the homeland against outsiders and various other extra large creatures. BUT...is what it is, an entertaining film. This film isn't "Pride and Prejudice" or "A Streetcar Named Desire
  2. Was not planning to see Wonder Woman on its first run, was going to catch it later. BUT...have changed my mind. This movie was set up to be a disappointment, but the word on the film has been so good that there's a real buzz. Doesn't hurt that the summer film schedule looks to be a bit weak. Props to Gal Gadot.
  3. "White Sun /Seto Surya" ( 2016 ) Nepalese film about the Nepal cival war. Really good movie, caught this film at a recent film festival.
  4. I like Eastwood, one of my fav old school actors, but he might need to see more films, or connect with modern audiences. The reason they might not make "Dirty Harry" today is the same reason they made it way back....MONEY. Has nothing to do with being political correct. If Hollywood thought the film would make money, they'd release it. Violence, racial stereotyping, ect, that receive negative publicity ...they release films like this frequently. Just went back and saw one again this past week..."Ghost In The Shell". "The Hunger Games"....there are a lot of VERY big budget Hollywood mo
  5. Frank Sinatra Unreal jazz skills. I'm not old enough to have seen Sinatra in concert, but in his prime I would have loved it. He was the real deal, for my taste the best ever in jazz. Bing Crosby? Pleasant voice, pleasant music, cut some nice sides early on and I like some of his duets in his prime years. BUT... to me he was all over the place, he lacked a certain "style" that was a sound. He made a lot of records, did very well though.
  6. I much prefer "Gone With The Wind" to "Citizen Kane". I like Citizen Kane, it's a well made clever movie with one of my favorite old school actors in Joe Cotten. But, it's not as entertaining as GWTW and I don't need to watch Kane that often. I can watch GWTW somewhat regularly, or at least as much as I can watch any four hour movie, and Clark Gable is one of my top old Hollywood players. Neither of these films I would say are favorites of mine, there are a number of Gable films I like better, but GWTW is a cool watch.
  7. I recently saw "Ghost In The Shell" with Scarlett Johansson and Michael Pitt once again, the standard digital version on its 2nd. run before it departs theaters forever. The film was released in several formats, but the 3D version isn't much different...at least to me. Entertaining film, not the success that it was hoped to be, but for me one of the more entertaing action films of this Spring. This film had a lot of bad publicity, for several reasons. I'm not familiar with the Manga, the story's source, so that wasn't an issue for me. As for the casting of Scarlett, well that's "Holl
  8. Yep. I love me some Kirsten Dunst. The first of her movies I saw were The Virgin Suicides, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Bring It On. Liked all of those. I saw Interview With A Vampire sometime after those.
  9. I've seen "Sin City" several times, though it's been a while. I've also seen the sequel "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For". Cool odd films, quite moody and unique. Entertaining and stylistic. Frank Miller came up with some interesting stories back then. Good casting on these movies, a large cast. Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke. As far as the ladies went, hard to ignore Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. And wow Brittany Murphy just a few years before she passed away.
  10. I've always had a crush on the 1960 Sunbeam Alpine that Elizabeth Taylor drove in Butterfield 8. Sporty red beautiful old car. From what i've heard, red was a rare color for this car, but the car seemed to really fit her character.
  11. I remember Kirsten Dunst way back from Bring It On, The Virgin Suicides, Spider Man, and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Always one cool classy lady, hoping her newest film will be a good watch.
  12. I have really wanted to see "King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword". But the word is this film is really bad, and bad in a silly way. I had hoped for better, especially since the summer releases look a bit down for what I like. Not much on the way this year. I might try to catch this film anyways soon, at least the score might be good...it's done by a talented composer named Daniel Pemberton. Word on "Snatched" isn't much better, but I may go see it also.
  13. I love this film. China Seas often gets overlooked, Gable made so many big movies, and MGM made so many big movies, that this one seems to get lost in the shuffle sometimes. But this is one of those movies that shows why MGM knew how to entertain in the 1930's....great adventure story, cool leads, and a good group of support /character actors. Gable has always been my favorite of the old-school Hollywood leading man types, and this is a great film as to why. Really good chemistry with Harlow and Beery.
  14. The first time or two I saw this movie, I didn't much care for it. I found it to be somewhat dull, and James Dean's "tortured soul" screen persona I could never get into. But the film has grown on me, I like it much better now. Still not a favorite, but better. I still prefer "Rebel Without A Cause", mostly because of the cinematography and players. "Giant"? I have to pass on that one.
