    The Last Jedi. I must admit I don't get the hate, this was solid entertainment.

    The Personal History of David Copperfield

    I wish there were more of this movie. The two hours flew by at a pace that didn't leave much time to marvel at David's wild swings of fortune.

    Bogart’s Marlowe is what Marlowe wanted to be; Powell’s Marlowe is what Marlowe was.

    Love that film.

    I can't see them making a sequel, though.

    :p

    watched hitchcock's notorious today, with bergman and cary grant. of hitchcock's best-reviewed films, only one that I hadn't seen previously. loved it - slow start, but the last third is tense and thrilling.

    one of the best claude rains performances I've seen, too.

    For The Love of Spock

    A beautiful 2016 Documentary directed by Leonard Nimoy's son.
    This doc is freakin' awesome people. There is so much amazing vintage footage and several of the main ST cast return for interviews. And I never knew to what extent Leonard Nimoy was such a Renaissance Man.

    There are clips and scenes that will make you laugh, inspire you, and make you cry.

    The scene where they intercut real clips of the TOS cast watching Leonard sing the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins song had me in stitches; I watched it twice in a row.

    This is essential viewing for Star Trek fans.

    Radioactive (2019)
    An Amazon Prime Original starring Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie with Sam Riley as her husband Pierre in a historical drama on the Nobel Prize winner and her life's work. At times it weighs heavily on the drama; and features imagery that kind of takes away from the main story. It also portrays the legacy of the Curie's science decades after her death. But overall it was a pretty interesting movie.

    Le Samourai. This is a great film. Everything it does is pretty archetypal now — the inexpressive, methodically professional, ascetic hit man; the hit-man-double-crossed plot; the quiet, all-business approach — and it still works, because the execution is fantastic. It’s a wonderfully crafted film that takes its time building its straightforward-but-complicated story. It’s full of atmosphere and fascinated by procedure, with long, mesmerizing sequences of the hit man establishing his alibi or losing a tail. Just a great movie. Rightfully iconic.

    Number One. Charlton Heston plays an aging quarterback who has to face the end of his career. It’s a fairly unique sports drama; it’s not about a season, not about the gameplay, but about the very particular experience of a successful player having to look into the abyss of life without the thing that has completely defined him his entire life. It focuses on a short period at the start of the season as Heston struggles with whether it’s time to hang it up, fields job offers that don’t appeal to him, contemplates cheating on his distant wife, and is just generally dissatisfied with his options in life at this point. It’s a very solid drama, and Heston is excellent as a man who is looking at an uncertain, unpleasant future but would much rather try to keep living in the past. It’s pretty great if you have any interest in sports, but even if you don’t, it’s an excellent drama.

    Fantasy Island 2020

    based on the tv series but with a horror slant.
    This was just confusing , they throw in a supernatural element to explain the impossible stuff , and then there's a lot of talk about who's fantasy they're actually in as if to add some twists. I didn't like any of the characters and didn't care about their stories .

    Over The Moon (2020)
    An animated feature film from Netflix. A young Chinese girl has been brought up with a fantastical story about a moon Goddess and her search for her lost love. When tragedy hits he girl's family, she is determined to put her knowledge of science to the test and take a rocket to the moon to see the Goddess herself. It's a delightful movie with a nice soundtrack and an overall Disney-esque feel.

    One question to those who've seen it:
    It never explains how her stepmother got that other piece to the amulet, does it? She was the one that gave the cake that it was inside of, right?

    This is the story of how Larry the iPad monster commits unforced child predator errors like announcing his intentions to the parents beforehand.

    Speaking of Heston I watched the original Planet of the Apes last night, which was fantastic. Possibly the best ending ever. He's a real movie star, if a bit hammy. But it's part of his charm.

    I like Heston, not the least reason being because he's so easy for impressionists to do.

    I like the circus movie he did. The one where Jimmy Stewart plays a clown. The Greatest Show on Earth?

    Yup. Although I've heard it's one of the worst Best Picture winners ever made. I still need to see it.

    I would watch Titanic again way, way before I watched The Greatest Show on Earth again. At least Titanic has some ****ing pathos.

    Edit: Although, I'll be honest, looking at 1952 in specifically American cinema I'm not exactly sure anything stellar was coming out on top of that crop.

    it's a favorite of Spielberg's , he's often talked of re-creating the train crash as a kid

    The Rise of Skywalker. It was only the second viewing for me, a worthy conclusion to the saga, I think.
