Bman, I have seen the film listed on a number of my last flights but have never considered watching. Thanks for your note.

As always, I live to serve....... 

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.

 Not exactly a movie but a show on Netflix called Somebody Feed Phil.  The Tel Aviv episode is excellent. It really puts a well rounded view of how people really live there.

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.

JC, might be best to discuss after you have viewed.

A few takeaways... nature v nurture or nature + nurture?  Darkness. Underlying Mengele like overtone or? Pawn/ lab rat?

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.

Last Flag Flying

Good flick, great performaces, especially by Bryan Cranston. It's a tear jerker, but you kind of know that going in. More comedy in it than you might think, though.

All The Money In The World

OK. Not sure how convincing Spacey would have been playing the 80 year old Getty.

Avengers - Infinity War - the digital release.  Just as enjoyable as in the theater.  I really think I want to end the series here, and pretend that no subsequent movies exist (like I do for The Matrix).

 

Thanos Rules!

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.

... a film I had not thought of in years.

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.

I'm catching a little bit of The Godfather, before my wife comes in the room and gives me that "how ****ing many times can you watch that" look.

Phantom Thread

I had low expectations based on the chatter I'd read, but it kept my attention and went in a direction I hadn't expected.

Three Identical Strangers.  Definitely a disturbing subject, but a very well-done movie. If anyone is interested I have an article written by my mother-in-law’s colleague about the movie and  and real life discussion. If you want it send me an email to justinhome at msn dot com
