Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

... Falling Down (1992-USA-France) ***½ The most unfairly overlooked film of its year come Oscar time (releasing it in Feb probably didn't help). Michael Douglas, Robert Duvall, even Frederic Forrest could've/should've been nominated. Powerful, potent urban drama, leaves you with plenty to think ab...

Welcome. First question: what have you seen? Do you use a site like icheckmovies to keep track of your watches? Second: since we are discussing the basics: what John Woo films have you seen?

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Casanova’s Big Night (1954: Norman Z. McLeod) Yet another Bob Hope film I recently rewatched. Definitely light fare, but good if you like this style of comedy. In some ways this is quite similar with an earlier Hope film in Monsieur Beaucaire. It is a costume comedy dealing with a scared Bob Hope (...

Oblivion (2013-USA) *** I'm giving this sci-fi adventure 3 stars, because not only is it technically very well made, but it's brimming with smart ideas and visuals (at least half a star is for the gorgeous Olga Kurylenko though). I'd be lying, however, if I didn't confess to finding the plot a tad ...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Never Say Die (1939: Elliot Nugent) I like Bob Hope so I am always a bit biased with his films (and I have seen over 30 with him in it). This is one of several films he did with Martha Raye and it seems interesting now to see her billed over him, though she was quite popular at the time and Bob was...

Interesting stuff about Patrick Yau. I hope he's doing good. He co-directed The Longest Nite, so he's pretty much a god to me. Johnnie To said that the music was inspired by Midnight Express? It has the same music that's used in the chase scene (well, actually it's from the longer 8 minute version ...

... Le Samourai 1967- I decided to check out another Delon movie. This was rated pretty high so I took a chance on it. This is the kind of movie I don't like. Slow moving, and not much happens. But I'm surprised to say I liked it quite a bit. It reminds me a little of the spaghetti western A Strang...
