Barry Lyndon (1975) - An Irish rogue wins the heart of a rich widow and assumes her dead husband's aristocratic position in 18th-century England.

This is Kubrick's most sumptuous film--outstanding cinematography and locations. And the wigs get a perfect score. 4.5/5

That it my favorite way to watch them too, though I do stream and watch them on TV. I worry that if the Coronavirus is hard to contain, both this year and perhaps different strains in future years, that it could be a nail in the theatre coffin. I sure hope not. I look forward to going back to the theatres when it is safe.

I hear drive in theaters are coming back. I have friends planning outdoor cinema events with social distancing.

Chasing Coral

star star star and a half of 4.

AS a lover of scuba diving and the ocean, it breaks my heart to see how quick the whole coral eco-system is dying off so quickly. This film helped make it a movement to do daily photos to show how it changes in various locations over a month or two. That alone commands my respect. Entertainment wise, it could have been better edited. Too much time installing ineffective technology, which didn't captivate. However, once they resolved their technological problems, their pictures speak volumes!

I watched an hour of this film, and I can't see why did you rate this thing so highly, they try too hard to be cool and all, but they just can't sustain their awful premise.

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) - Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier, transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.

I like this movie more now than when I first watched it. And that final line before the credits was perfect. 4/5

Ordet (1955) - Follows the lives of the Borgen family, as they deal with inner conflict, as well as religious conflict with each other, and the rest of the town.

If I had to watch a movie for church, it would be this one. 4.5/5

Phantasm II (1988)

So bad it's good. I forgot about the tall man and the flying balls of death. May need to check out the other movies (III, IV and some other made in 2016?)

American Made (2017)

Tom Cruise isn't my favorite but he did a good job here. I've known the story for a while and was curious how they would handle it. It was decent entertainment.

The Juniper Tree (1990) - Margit and her older sister, Katla, flee their homeland after their mother is killed for practicing witchcraft. Needing a place to stay, Katla casts a spell over a young farmer named Jóhann which makes him fall in love with her.

This is definitely worth seeing if you like Björk. It's based on a Grimm fairy tale so that was appropriate casting. I was not so enamored with the film overall as critics were. It wasn't bad, but I'm surprised the reviews were extremely positive. 3/5

How is her acting? And, does she sing at all in the film or on the soudtrack?

Thanks

Björk's acting was perfectly fine. She sings one song briefly, but it's nothing like the full-on performance in Dancer in the Dark.

star star star star (of 4) - Excellent movies that was written by Shia LaBeouf about his toxic and complicated relationship with his father. I saw it two days ago and it still is very much with me, which says a lot. The acting is great, with the child actor being especially remarkable.

Fall From Grace: The Covenant of Grace

star star star and .25 (of 4)

A movie about two men who are deeply conflicted between their Mormon religion and their love for each other. I had already seen a movie a while back with a similar theme, so I wasn't going to watch this one until I noticed it had such a high user rating. It was well done and moving.

Spellbound (1945 film)

Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman in a Hitchcock film. Always loved Ingrid Bergman (maybe because of Casablanca) but the main reason for finding and watching this movie was because Salvador Dali did the dream sequence. I've never seen a Dali image come to life before, it was awesome. Storyline was a little predictable but overall I enjoyed it.

Gilda (1946) - A small-time gambler hired to work in a Buenos Aires casino discovers his employer's new wife is his former lover.

It was fun seeing Rita Hayworth sashay her way through this postwar film noir. I may even like it more after a re-watch. 3.5/5

Which movies are these? Were there supposed to be images? Am I the only one who can't see what they are?

Yes. They originally posted as far as I can tell with an image with title, but these images have disappeared. The Shia L movie is Honey Boy that was on Amazon Prime. The gay Mormon one is The Falls: Covenant of grace. It can be found on Prime but perhaps elsewhere too.
I finally got the first image to work, but the image for the second movie always shows up in the "preview" message but not once it is posted. I tried two different images, both the same thing. This hasn't happened to me before for movie stills. Anyone else experience this?

The Passion of Joan of Arc is the only other Dreyer film I've seen and it's all around perfect. I believe there are some more on the last Sight and Sound movie poll which I have been revisiting since the pandemic started. I've been trying to pick a classic to watch from that list every weekend.

The Avengers (2012) - Earth's mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are going to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity.

The magic of seeing the individual members from their previous solo films come together for the first time is still there. This is a wonderfully enjoyable comic book film. 4.5/5

Ratatouille (2007) - A rat who can cook makes an unusual alliance with a young kitchen worker at a famous restaurant.

I tried watching this with the French audio track and English subtitles and it totally worked as a faux French film. This will be the way I screen this movie going forward. 4.5/5
