    Watching The Miracle Worker (1962) - About the childhood of Helen Keller.

    Very intense.

    Just watched Justice League. Story wasn't strong which didn't bother me much since I went in without much expectation. Enjoyed it more than Thor: Ragnarok.

    Red Dawn. It was ok.

    I forgot it was out and ended up walking into a full-on review. Managed to escape before I read anything.

    Going to see it next week.

    Did the "wah, wah" moment get you, too, lol? It had me crying all over my floor. I thought that "cry me a river" was just an exaggeration, an expression, lol, but when that scene came on, I literally cried a river, lol. :)

    The remake with Hunky Hemsworth. Was watching it because I couldn't sleep and the TV only had channel 1-5.

    No, I don't get tears or anything. But felt it deeply.


    Watched Ali and Nino (2016) a love story set around 1918 to 1920 when Russia invaded Azerbaijan and those areas. Some stunning shots of Iran (called Persia). Interesting.

    Started Me, Earl and the Dying Girl. Seen half of it.
    Not sure I will continue it. These American coming-of-age movies are just full of boys dreaming of breasts and silly sex jokes.

    Just back home after watching Thor:Ragnarok. Kinda sad that they did not use this theme. :(

    Also did not like the insensitive joke when Asgard was going down. But Hela is a much better antagonist than the 2nd one.
    And Loki did not disappoint. I felt warmth for a moment then he suddenly says that he bet against Thor lol.

    Yes, the Dark World theme is so good. It should be Thor's cinematic theme.

    Just started Calamity Jane (1953). Loving it. Wonderful songs.

    Loved "Got a hive full of honey".



    Day before started a movie called "Me, Earl and the Dying Girl" (2014) but abandoned it after about 40 minutes. Some coming of age movie full of sexual jokes which I don't really care for.

    geostorm is meh but at least it makes sense. flatliner on the other hand has the most anticlimatic ending. I'm sorry for anyone cast in it.

    If you're into kpop check out justice league.

    Has anyone saw Kingsman the golden circle?
    I couldn't finish it. In the beginning it looks good and serious, then it turned into half comical and some gruesome scene. When Channing Tatum and Elton John showed up I knew this must be joke.

    Groundhog Day (1993) - Bill Murray. Saw it in the 90s and hated it. Watched it again yesterday and liked it.

    Watched The Hitman's Bodyguard and Valerian over the weekend.

    Hitman's Bodyguard was hilarious. Really enjoyed it.

    Valerian had some cool special effects and interesting concepts, but the plot and acting was only so-so.

    "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"

    in theatres, thoughtful drama with McDormand, Harrelson, Rockwell and Dinklage. Well acted, worthwhile

    Haven't been in cinemas for ages. I don't like it when they turn the audio so loud. It's so very annoying, especially during the adverts. Thinking of watching Vincent van Gogh, is it good?

    It doesn't have any adult scenes so it may not suitable for adult:D:p. I really enjoy Disney movies. It is rated G normally because it is good for anybody.
    One of the most surprisingly good ones were Wall-E. Of Course the Beauty and Beast is good for adult.

    Took my Mother to see it yesterday. It has the feel of a cheap made-for-tv production.
    I seems unlikely there will ever be a decent movie about tennis unless Scorsese has plans to make the GOAT.

    DiCaprio in training?

    Nowhere near as awful as this though:

    The Third Man in 4K! First released in 1949.

    What it is about:
    Set in postwar Vienna, Austria, "The Third Man" stars Joseph Cotten as Holly Martins, a writer of pulp Westerns, who arrives penniless as a guest of his childhood chum Harry Lime (Orson Welles), only to find him dead. Martins develops a conspiracy theory after learning of a "third man" present at the time of Harry's death, running into interference from British officer Maj. Calloway (Trevor Howard) and falling head-over-heels for Harry's grief-stricken lover, Anna (Alida Valli).

    [​IMG]
    Why watch: Classic film. Has all the ingredients of a "great film". It is a thriller type film. Shown below is a long, long film review:
    http://www.filmsite.org/thir.html

    Current reviews: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/92904/The-Third-Man/

    This movie inspired the radio drama and later TV series: Harry Niles!

    The morale of the Third Man: Never listen to a policeman with a sob story or never trust someone who calls you your friend.

    The result is that you lose your friend, your girl and the drug trade is resumed under someone else's authority.

    These storyline has been done over 1,000 time after The Third Man movie, from Mike Hammer to Mannix to NYPD Blue! Never looses it impact yet!
