All Quiet on the Western Front. Original 1930 version on Peacock Streaming.

I've seen it before, but that was a long time ago.

DW and I currently binging on yet another long espionage series, “Strike Back”.
A British filmed series that I can actually understand conversations due to my new TV hearing aids.

Prior to this we finished, “Homeland”, “The Black List”, “Alias”, “The Americans”, “Covert Affairs”, “24”.

Dirty Dancing, at a drive-in movie.

In 1963, a summer romance at a vacation hotel in NewYork. A very good movie.

A Farewell to Arms (1932) Gary Cooper, Helen Hayes, Adolphe Menjou, from the book by Ernest Hemingway

An American ambulance driver and an English nurse fall in love in Italy during World War I.

It sounds like it would be good, from Hemingway’s novel after all, and with some top Hollywood actors, but ultimately disappointing. Though I always enjoy seeing Adolphe Menjou.

I streamed it on The Criterion Channel.

Chronicles of Riddick unrated director's cut, on DVD (not Blu-ray). I didn't think it was as good as Riddick, but I would agree they had more production money to spend on it. Not bad, though.

Ruben Brandt, Collector

Surrealistic animated film about a psychotherapist who employs
four of his patients to steal certain masterpieces that he believes
will end his nightmares that are associated with the paintings.
The movie features Picassoesque type characters and parodies of
famous paintings are sprinkled throughout the film. Fascinating once
you get past the outlandish format style and get into the rhythm of
the film. I enjoyed this movie.

I just finished the four Hunger Games movies.

There are many comments on those in this thread already, so bottom line is that as a sci-fi fan I enjoyed them though they were not perfect.

The first one was close to perfect. The second one ends on a cliff-hanger, which means that once you start the second one you pretty much have to view the remaining two to get any closure. The last two had some good moments but often felt like situations were arranged solely for the purpose of putting certain special effects into the movie, breaking one's suspension of disbelief. At the same time, the plot is actually rather deep and interesting, but probably too cerebral for many people who prefer more action.

I don't see how the economy in that world could actually work, but in some sense that's the whole point.

Mifune: The Last Samurai (2015)

A feature-length documentary about the life and films of legendary actor Toshirô Mifune, weaving together film clips, archival stills, and interviews with such luminaries as Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. Narrated by Keanu Reeves.

Good documentary, we enjoyed it and we also like his films! Recommended.

We streamed it in The Criterion Channel.

Some great voices and some great video clips of the main acts they backed: Bruce, Sting, Stevie Wonder, plus one of David Bowie that rocked! Another scene of backups dancing for Tina Turner was electrifying and hot! Maybe too much talking.

Only on Netflix for a few more days.
Watched it per your recommendation. Very good.

Recently watched 2 Japanese films, both on DVD.

Aruitemo Aruitemo (Still Walking) 2008 - A family comes together to commemorate the anniversary of the death of the eldest son. A sweet and realistic portrayal - I liked it. The director Hirokazu Kore-eda has made several highly acclaimed films (including Shoplifters and Nobody Knows), and this movie incorporates elements of his real life.

Tengoku to Jigoku (High and Low, or Heaven and Hell) 1963 - Directed by Akira Kurosawa, stars include Toshiro Mifune and the incandescent Kyoko Kagawa. An excellent detective thriller that begins when a wealthy executive's son is targeted for kidnap. I highly recommend this classic.

Fight Club, on DVD. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton star in this 1999 R-rated movie about a fight club. Lots of action, suspense, and plot twists. This movie kept my interest throughout, not to mention a few scenes that were hilarious. I liked it, but can't talk about it.*

* See the movie.

Watched the Octopus Teacher last night, interesting movie. Would recommend, especially for those that enjoy snorkeling / diving.

Also watched Adrift, enjoyed this movie as well. Based on a true story about a sailboat disabled by a hurricane far from land, well before todays modern technology for navigation.

The Great Outdoors, at a drive-in movie.

This is a comedy with John Candy and Dan Ackroyd. A family vacation in the northwoods, becomes a disaster when the obnoxious brother-in-law and his family show up uninvited.

Anything with John Candy is worth watching.

Two top contenders, BOTH directed by John Hughes as was The Great Outdoors:
Planes Trains and Automobiles (Steve Martin included!)
Uncle Buck (with bonus appearance by Macaulay Culkin back when he was adorable)

I guess that makes anything directed by John Hughes worthwhile as well.

I really enjoyed this too. It’s pretty amazing the dedication he showed in filming this and diving every day for a year. The connection it showed between him and his new friend is nice to watch as it develops. And I was impressed to watch him free dive and hold his breath.
Lastly, watching the octopus camouflage ability is so impressive.

Two fun low budget Netflix movies I recently enjoyed are:
ARQ: this is a fun action movie that brings Groundhog Day to mind. It has some interesting time related twists.

TAU: this is a bit silly and cheesy, but enjoyed it anyway. It’s about a genius inventor that takes a woman prisoner and he and his house are defended by his AI system.

As for Mifune’s non-samurai movies, I liked The Bad Sleep Well (1960), also directed by Kurosawa. Have you seen that one? I’ll be watching it again soon on The Criterion Channel. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054460/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind (2019)
A heartwarming story of a Malawian family triumphing over adversity. It’s a good film, it made me value my first-world advantages and comfort, however briefly. Note: most films are about triumphing over adversity. It’s a true story and they showed the real people at the end. The actors were a lot better-looking than they were, also true of most films. We streamed it on Netflix.

The Bad Sleep Well (1960, Japan), Toshirô Mifune, Kyôko Kagawa, Takeshita Shimura, directed by Akira Kurosawa

A film noir where a vengeful young man marries the daughter of a corrupt industrialist in order to seek justice for his father's suicide. Mifune and Kurosawa are both film legends. I’d have watched it based on the title alone! This is a good film, recommended.

I streamed it on The Criterion Channel.

Damn Yankees on DVD. This is the movie version of the musical that won seven Tony awards in 1956, so I had high hopes for it. What I found was
  • One famous song (Whatever Lola Wants) that you've already heard.
  • One amazing performance that you can easily find on YouTube
  • An impressively energetic hoedown set in a ball field that made me feel sorry for the performers.
  • One dated and embarassing song about cannibals eating missionaries and Indians scalping settlers that may account for why this movie is now so hard to find even on DVD.
  • More songs, not particularly good or memorable.
  • A story line that never fails to take the easy way out.
So, overall a disappointment. Fortunately Fosse and Verdon went on to better things.

Not recently, but I watched the entirety of Jurassic Galaxy, with its truly awful 1990s CGI dinosaurs. It was made in 2018. It was just good enough to keep watching, like a more boring, less funny version of the Land of the Lost movie with Will Ferrell, which was also not that great.

Just finished my own 19th century British Navy mini-marathon with DVDs from my personal stash. First was the A&E Hornblower series. In eight DVDs it follows the career of Horatio Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd) from a 17 year old midshipman to post-captain during the Napoleonic Wars. ( In case you don’t know what a post-captain is, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-captain ) The only problem I have with the series is the end. Mrs. Hornblower tells Horatio she’s carrying his child. And that’s it. No more. The end. I read that Gruffudd wanted to make more episodes, but A&E didn’t. So we’re left hanging.

But I supplied my own ending with my 1951 Captain Horatio Hornblower, starring Gregory Peck in the Hornblower role. In this story he returns home after an extended duty in the Pacific to discover he has a son, but his wife died in childbirth. How sad, or maybe not. During the time in the Pacific he rescued an English Lady, and they fell in love during the return to England. But he couldn’t pursue it because he was married. So she marries an Admiral. Bummer. But wait! The Admiral is killed in a battle. So we’re left with Hornblower and his Lady together at the end.

Being a glutton for 19th century British Navy I finished my marathon with Master and Commander with Russel Crowe.

Since you mentioned bad movies with dinosaurs, I pulled out my old Caveman DVD tonight... Ringo Starr, Shelley Long, Dennis Quaid, Barbara Bach.... Bad. But it's supposed to be bad, so I guess that makes it OK.
