We had a movie session with our 4 yr old Granddaughter last night and we watched Nomeo & Juliet
No, it's still 'slow' and I'm not sure why I'm sticking with it, curiosity I think.
There was an older version I think, made a few years ago
Operation Daybreak with Martin Shaw and Antony Andrews (from 1975!).
That's the one - saw it a year or two ago on TCM
It's far from his worst. I quite enjoyed it, in a brain popcorn sort of way.
I could watch it again, but I like Mr De Niro
Sort of..... I started watching "Roma" on Netflix since it is highly regarded by the critics. I turned it off after suffering 30 minutes of boredom.
No, I don't want to watch someone park a car nor turn off lights in a house for 2 hours (OK, so it didn't take them that long, but it really felt like it.) I have absolutely no idea what the critics saw in it, but I think 30 mins to give it a go was long enough. I didn't realize it was Alfonso Cuaron who also directed "Gravity" (and I almost walked out of the movie theatre with that one as well!) but now it makes complete sense.
1 out of 10. The 1 is purely for sympathy -and the fact I didn't throw a shoe at the tv breaking it.
Black Hawk Down.
Worth watching for the Little Bird scene alone, although the defending the chopper scene is quite startling. True story and all that. The US Army Rangers got off to a bad start that day, but once they sorted out their sheet they evened the score approximately 30:1. Boo yah!
Unbreakable the other night... second viewing and still definitely one of Shyamalan's best films.
Split last night... certainly doesn't live up to Unbreakable. I'll give it... pants/10
I quite enjoyed Split although it kept reminding me of de Palmas Raising Cain which is nudging classic territory.
The first half reminded me of Sybil. But I found the three young women in captivity and their handling of the situation totally unconvincing. Nobody behaves like that, not even in TV land.
I'll be watching Glass before long. I hope it's a lot better.
If the critics love a film.....
We went the pictures to see Clint Eastwood in 'Mule' and loved it! It's all true, too.
