Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

That must be some cold. Minnelli never made a film called The Web , but he did, of course, make The Cobweb the following year. The irony is that Cukor making his first widescreen film proved an early master of the process that Minnelli would soon be considered the greatest master of. Both made all ...

Re: First Man reviews

I was six when the landing of the moon took place and I don't remember it. But to be fair I have never had any interest in outer space or what lies beyond our own planet. I also would have fitted perfectly in one of the protest scenes in First Man - no acting required on my part for sentiments that ...

Re: First Man reviews

I was bored out of my mind watching this - waiting for something interesting to happen and it never does. It funny its only the fourth film I can think of the deals with historical events in relation to the space race. The others are The Right Stuff (1983), Apollo 13 (1995) and the little known Aust...

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

It was Cukor, as of course you know. Golly, that was foolish of me given that Cukor & Minnelli are worlds apart as directors and during that period Minnelli was making a whole lot of luridly entertaining films with The Web probably being the pinnacle and in which A Star is Born does not fit int...

Re: Coming DVDs

Just an update on the Criterion Blu Ray release of the almost complete works of Ingmar Bergman - they are going to be Region Free. Great news for those who only stick to releases within their respective regions.

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

A Star is Born (2018) Bradley Cooper 2/10 Yeah. Sad but true. Now just read - if you have the courage - what the Americans on this board think of this movie (in the Star is Born thread). The way they reacted to it (or they say they did - some of them clearly didn't really like it but have to preten...

Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

Two more films neither which are unlikely to make any inroads into the contest. The Great Buddha (Taiwan) is an absolute delight and highly original film. It is the feature film debut of Hsin-yao Huang and goodness knows we need more talented Taiwanese voices in cinema with Ang Lee departing to the ...

Re: Best Cinematography 1964

These aren't actually bad line-ups. None of the nominees scream out as overtly deserving but they are in general respectable. B&W - I've only seen Zorba the Greek & Hush...Hush Sweet Charlotte on the big screen many moons ago and Fate is the Hunter on a stunning transfer on DVD from Spain. T...

Re: European trip

Well, I must admit London exceeded my expectations. I had been moaning when my partner planned and mapped out the trip that I didn't want to visit London, but I'm so glad we did and I would love to go back. We caught buses around mainly so me could get a good eyeful of the city and rarely used the u...

Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

I've just seen the Greek submission, Polyxeni and frankly found the film impenetrable. Really had a hard time with the film and its one of those experience akin to watching something through the bottom of a glass that I simply could make little sense of. Really doubt this will make any headway. I'm ...

THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST it's still a noble effort well worth seeing and writer-director Desiree Akhavan is definitely a filmmaker to watch out for. Grade: B Actually, Desiree Akhaven's first film Appropriate Behaviour marked her as a filmmaker to watch. As well intended as this film is, it...

Re: Documentary Feature Watch

Whitney (Kevin Macdonald) ***1/2 - This is one two documentaries on Whitney Houston coming out this year. I haven't seen the Nick Broomfeld one on Netflix (let me know if it's worth seeing even after seeing this one). This one, I think, is quite a very good one. It documents Houston's beginnings, h...
