MOVIES: What are you watching?

The Last Waltz.  Not sure how I missed this one over the years, but a good watch.  Great cameos by several important artists.  Having followed Emmylou Harris over the years, I'd forgotten how sexy she was in her youth.  I liked her voice better then, too. A little less brittle.

Go back and look for the cocaine booger in Neil Young's nose. Scorsese, in post production, actually tried a form of traveling matte to hide it, but it's clearly there.

Think I'll pass, TOM... but thanks!  I would like to know what drugs Joni Mitchell was doing during this concert.  She looked stoned out of her mind.  Almost zombie-like.

Gone Baby Gone--65pts. 

The lead actress looks like and acts like a TV actress, which she mostly is. Casey, as they say "only looks like a child", but he acts like one too and is totally unbelievable in this part. Also the "director" Ben Affleck criminally wastes the talent of the, oddly handlebar mustached, Titis Welliver. Made it through 20 minutes.

Avatar - had never seen it before.  Visually stunning, creating an exciting world.  Story-wise, it is Dances With Wolves all over again.

Funny to see this.  This was the very first Blu-Ray movie I ever purchased.  Bought it solely for the visual aspects of the film.  Was blown away by the visuals, but it was my first Blu-Ray.  Agree with you on the content.

Separate Tables 

Just watched the awful, wonderful Casino Royale--1967 reuniting Deborah Kerr and David Niven. Kerr, though past her prime, was still sexy and gave it her all.

I agree with the "awful" part. IMO the worst movie ever made. It's like they made one of those avant-garde,  experimental 60's films, except not on purpose. Seven different directors made seven small 007 films, and they threw them all into a blender and came up with that POS.

Actually the worst "Hollywood" movie is Skiddoo. Groucho Marx's last film appearance (as God!) and has a scene with Jackie Gleason experiencing a acid trip.
