The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (extended edition) - I saw the first two Hobbit movies once each in the theater; this one I had never seen until the last three days. It's pretty much more of the same. There are some good things in it that are almost overwhelmed by the tedious. There is a giant battle full of characters we don't really know or care about. Even the mostly nameless dwarfs we have spent time with don't get involved until well into the battle when the 12 of them turn the tide against an overwhelming force. And Bilbo and Gandalf are mostly on the sidelines for all of this. My overall reaction...I enjoyed the first movie more than I remembered at the time, but the story is just too stretched out and full of characters that I never cared about. You contrast that with the more successful set of films and that's why these didn't work for me. (MA & VUDU...there was an issue)

Vigilante Blue Underground 4K
Robert Forster, Fred Williamson, Director: Joe Lustig
A blue collar worker (Forster) loses his family to violent criminals and is betrayed by a corrupt and indifferent legal system. He joins with some co-workers to take the law into their own hands.

This is an Early '80s Exploitation film that effectively pushes your buttons and delivers the goods (if you know what I mean). BU has done a great job with the 4K transfer and it looks terrific. A couple of new features and some archival commentaries.

Boring

Wonder why Buscmei and Dinklage did this movie

I don't know if the male and female secondary leads are still working in Hollywood since I don't recognize them from anything.

Bee Season - Richard Gere stars as a college professor who's daughter starts excelling in spelling bees. I thought it started out entertaining enough, but then got convoluted and weird and I lost interest. (HBO Max)

The Suspect (1944) — Simple and short, but still suspenseful noirish crime-thriller features wonderful performances from Charles Laughton and Ella Raines. Managed to keep my attention until the very end and is well photographed and directed film. ***/*****

Batman: Soul of the Dragon (2021) — Has its moments I guess and liked the 1970s-like styling though another animated movie where Batman is merely there to help sell rather than a major factor in the story. Gets a bit repetitive towards the end to the point I was kind of dosing off but didn't mind the animation and the voice acting was okay. ***/*****

Cool little thriller. It's on Shudder but I watched through Criterion Channel. I love Mackenzie and she was a grade A bitch in this. It's also short. It's about 83 minutes without credits.

Deerskin - Odd French film about a man going through a separation/divorce who buys a deerskin jacket and goes a little crazy. (HBO Max)

Money Plane - Edge isn't much of an actor, but no one distinguishes themselves in this, even the more famous actors. It's not very good. (hulu)

Nice to watch on a extremely rare rainy day in CA

Maybe I would buy it if it came out on a region 1 disc and not with 4 other movies.

Where was Walken before Trump came into power?

The Secret World of Arrietty - continuing my Studio Ghibli tour, this was my first watch of this movie. It's a lovely little (heh) story and the animation is beautiful--as usual for Ghibli movies. The developing friendship between the regular-sized boy and Arrietty was sweet, though the boy's background was kind of sad and a nice touch of realism. I've never read The Borrowers series of books that this story is based on, but I did watch the Saturday morning cartoon called The Littles when I was a kid. Apparently that was based on a different book series with a similar concept. Arrietty is definitely a movie I would like to revisit some day.

Double Indemnity (1944)

Love this film.

It was great to show this to folks who hadn't seen it before.

Leprechaun - I had never seen this, and I didn't think it was very good. I actually really liked Aniston for the first few years of Friends before her act wore thin with me. So now it is the actress I don't really care for looking like the actress I really liked at the time. (HBO Max)

Breach (2020) Awful in just about every regard. Acting was atrocious and although Bruce Willis's character is supposed to be a bit of alcoholic, I think the actor was actually drunk through most of this. Thomas Jane has only a few minutes of screen time but chews the scenery in what little in this he is and Cody Kearsley was pretty bland. Visual effects, even taking into account the low budget, was terrible. If not for Willis, this felt like a SyFy film. That said, never was angry while watching, in fact I laughed at some unintentional moments, just not enough to be in the good bad territory. */*****

So Evil My Love (1948) Pretty good gothic thriller with everything from deceit, blackmail and ultimately murder. Liked the two leads with Ray Milland and Ann Todd, the latter's character being manipulated from innocent widow to a woman committing ever escalating crimes. Pretty tense film from beginning to end. ***/*****

I thought it would be some steamy love triangle or people cheating on each other

Probably will be on Lifetime in a year.

Avenging Angel (1985)

This was on the Sony channel on DirecTV a few weeks ago and I DVR'd it. I've always wanted to see this as a kid as I would see this VHS on shelves, but I was too young to watch it.

It's about a former hooker who got help to turn her life around and then has to go back into it to find her friend's killer. Believe it or not, this was a 4 movie series. The 1st 3 movies are on Vinegar Syndrome special edition BDs.

It's a terrible movie. Really poorly written with corny dialogue and cartoonish characters. But, Betsy Russell is smoking hot in this. She was 21 when this movie was made. She wore some really sexy tops and short mini skirts. If the name doesn't sound familiar, she played Jigsaw's wife in the Saw movies. This was typical low budget 1980's schlocky cinema that would air on Cinemax back in the day. There's some partial nudity, but nothing really shocking compared to today's standards.

Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo - I've been rewatching the Love Bug movies on Disney+, but I don't remember ever seeing this one. Honestly, I don't think the series holds up. (Disney+)

The Teahouse of the August Moon. - Glenn Ford and Eddie Albert are very good, but whatever credits the movie has, getting past the decision to cast and present in full makeup Marlon Brando as a Japanese man from Okinawa is asking a lot. I mean it's 50s Brando so he fully commits to the part, but it's still very strange. (DVD)

Netflix

I like Sienna Miller but this was unbearable and the director is worse than M Night and puts himself in a scene for about 8 minutes as a psychologist.

Glad it was only a hour and 22 minutes long.


Baldwin did not have a big role as I thought he would.

Siennas red Mercedes looked cool though a double glance and it looked like a wagon

Marlon Brando also starred in the 1957 film "Sayonara", a very serious drama about Japanese-American relations in post WWII Japan. Marlon plays an American Major, but Ricardo Montalban is in full make-up as "Nakamura".

The Arrangement - Kirk Douglas stars in this Kazan film about a man going through a mid-life crisis. This film was a lot more annoying than insightful. (HBO Max)
