Bourne Legacy's tone arm are too heavy and the needle too dull for contemporary pressings.
The Killing Joke.
It was rubbish.
I like Matt Damon in Martian
never understood the hype...
yes it was certainly a good film, Aliens was as well. but, neither are as good as the original Predator IMO.
I finally saw Southpaw last night...good fight scenes but the story was kinda weak and 50 Cent needs to stick to rapping.
Blackfish (2013 documentary) - gives some great insight.
I was very interested in this one (first ever R rated DC film I believe).
The Pale Horse (Christie/Marple) - Interesting whodunit.
Was this the TV version with the great Julia McKenzie playing Miss Marple???
Yes, she does a great job. I mentioned it here since it is 93 minutes long, and just as good as any either whodunit made as a movie.
Did you watch it at home on your TV?
Really needs to be seen in a rusty, seedy 1979 Drive-in when you are 9 years old. I know I did.
Watching it on Netflix at 30years on isn't fair.
Predator (1987) is an all time classic, though.
Movies have a similar theme but a different atmosphere.
Kiss The Girls (Morgan Freeman)
The Sound Of Music (Julie Andrews)
The Lawnmower Man
I was expecting great things because DC animated stuff is usually good and the Killing Joke is one of the most famous stories. I just couldn't get into this at all. It doesn't measure up to other movies like the Dark Knight Returns.
The Secret Life of Pets with Taylor Swift's 'Welcome to New York' song
''Max (Louis C.K.) is a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that's bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who've done them wrong.''
Saw Absolutely Fabulous. Had never seen the TV show, but I expect a half-hour dose would be easier to take. Liked the music.
The Parallax View - 1974 - Warren Beatty
Admittedly I haven't come around to reading The Killing Joke, so maybe I can warm up to the movie. Agree, DC's animated stuff is really good; The Dark Knight Returns is a great.
Looking forward to seeing the new Bourne movie this weekend.
