    You need to be alert, as it cover 3 stories, and flips back and forth in the timeline, and they intertwine.

    But a great movie and very well done.

    Simultaneously dull and interesting.
    The audience liked the small ship's captain.
    The IMAX theatre's sound may have been off, since the bass was thumpy for no discernible reason, and at spots the voices were not understandable...
    Watched it tonight on Netflix.
    Actually noticed the sound and thought it was great.
    The effects (I assume CGI) were great, it sure looked like they crashed a Spitfire.

    Lots of Spitfire porn, lots of old wood boats porn, great movie.

    9.5/10

    Most of the minions use only one arm. If John Wick grabs them by that arm, they hold their other arm at their thigh or behind their back until they are killed.

    But other than that 8/10

    Saw the Joker, Phoenix tore up the screen, the story was a little cliche

    The fridge scene cracked me up though
    the wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept

    Internet has been out for a good while.


    Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines (1965)
    A newspaper puts up a prize for a London to Paris air race in 1910.
    A mid-60s British farce, great fun, but also some beautiful aeroplanes.
    7/10

    Central Intelligence.
    Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart.
    I waited 2 years to be in the mood to watch this, glad I waited.
    Quite enjoyed it, 7/10

    Dead In Tombstone
    Danny Trejo
    Stupid, kinda enjoyed it.

    Bought "Joker (2019)" on BluRay. I have nothing good to say about this film. I threw it in the trash.

    Watched "Red Rock West (1993)". Nicolas Cage, Lara Flynn Boyle, J. T. Walsh and Dennis Hopper
    7/10. I had never heard of it.
    When a promised job for Texan Michael fails to materialize in Wyoming, Mike is mistaken by Wayne to be the hitman he hired to kill his unfaithful wife, Suzanne.

    Watched "Mask of Dimitrios (1944)" Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre.
    7/10. Also pleasant. Strong cast. Good writing. Good pacing.
    When the body of Dimitrios Makropoulos (Zachary Scott) washes ashore in Istanbul, there is cause for celebration all across Europe. The devious sociopath has left as his legacy an array of crimes including blackmail, thievery, murder and high treason. Interested in chronicling the dead man's unscrupulous exploits, mystery writer Cornelius Leyden (Lorre) takes up his trail, aided by a mysterious man named Peters (Greenstreet). But as Leyden zeroes in on the truth about Dimitrios, he finds that his new associate has an ulterior motive in helping him.

    Watched "Across the Pacific (1942)", Sydney Greenstreet, Humphrey Bogart
    This film was shot between "The Maltese Falcon (1941)" and "Casablanca (1942)", and had a lot of the same cast.
    The film was originally green lit for production the summer of 1941 with the script being about a Japanese torpedo bombing of Hawaii's Pearl Harbour , but when they started filming in January 1942 the script had been quickly changed to be about a Japanese torpedo bombing of the Panama Canal before the USA entered the war, because Dec 7 1941 was a day that will live in infamy. Ironically, although no part of the film they made takes part in the Pacific the title remained unchanged after the rewrite.
    Another bit of irony, a lead character is named "Alberta", and she's from Medicine Hat. Thus, for a change, Alberta was in Medicine Hat.
    7/10. Also pleasant.

    Rick Leland makes no secret of the fact he has no loyalty to his home country after he is court-martialed, kicked out of the Army, and boards a Japanese ship for the Orient in late 1941. But has Leland really been booted out, or is there some other motive for his getting close to fellow passenger Doctor Lorenz? Any motive for getting close to attractive traveler Alberta Marlow would however seem pretty obvious.

    Took the kids to see the latest last Star Wars-Even they did not think it was very good- I thought it was awful.
    I much prefer most of the movies I watch on Turner Classic to this.
    Very preachy too.

    I gave up on any of the newer Star Wars holding a candle to the 70’s & 80’s movies, and I’m much happier for it. I thought Rise of Skywalker was quite a bit better than Last Jedi, but they made a lot of concessions trying to patch up the storyline and appease the fan base from the previous flick.

    Kind of like new Metallica songs....most of them are alright on their own. But hold them up against anything off Master of Puppets and it makes them look like a steaming pile....
