We enjoyed it too.

It made a nice change-of-pace from all the US, UK, EU and OZ cops/spies shows we've been watching during the pandemic.
Enola Holmes, on Netflix. Shetlock's little sister is abandoned by her mother, searches for her mother and has adventures. We enjoyed the movie.

Thanks for the recommendation :) .

This topic is getting me to watch more movies. I like that!

"The Giant Mechanical Man"

Cute, quirky love story starring Jenna Fischer from The Office. She was also a producer, and she and the director fell in love during the filming, eventually marrying. Very watchable - solid performances, good writing, good cinematography. Overall not very long-term memorable though, with a pretty standard love story plot line, only a couple of twists, so maybe 7 out of 10 as a score.

Most of it was filmed in locations I am very familiar with. The filmmakers caught the right mood for each of those places in real life. Very impressive.

"How to be a Latin Lover" on Netflix.

I thought it was well-acted (the child actor is great), funny, a little long sometimes, and overall a feel-good movie.
Rotten Tomatoes summary: Maximo gets the surprise of his life when his wealthy, 80-year-old wife dumps him for a younger car salesman. Forced out of his mansion, he must now move in with his estranged sister Sara and her nerdy but adorable son Hugo. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, Maximo hatches a scheme to seduce a widowed billionaire and live the high life once again.

"The Spy" on Netflix. Recommended by a previous poster. Sacha Baron Cohen stars in it and potrays real-life Israeli clerk-turned-secret agent Eli Cohen, who went deep undercover inside Syria on a perilous, years-long mission to spy for Mossad. I am getting ready to watch it again it was so well-done.

A Dry White Season (1989) — Donald Sutherland, Marlon Brando, Susan Sarandon

A white middle class South African suburbanite with no interest in politics agrees to help his black gardener find his jailed son. His investigation opens his eyes to the horrors committed by the secret police and turns him into a target.

Filmed in Zimbabwe as S.A. would never have permitted it. Nelson Mandela was still in prison. Brando was great, he reportedly acted for free, well he did it for “scale”, or $4,000, for legal reasons, which was nothing for him. Sutherland also very good.

I recommend the film but some scenes are hard to watch, so beware. We streamed it on The Criterion Channel. It disappears from the channel on 1 October.

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.
Yes, big vote for My Octopus Teacher (Netflix) here. Even coaxed my wife to pull her face out of her phone on a Friday night. No small feat.

The King's Speech on YouTube. I was only ten years overdue seeing it for the first time, but it was worth the wait.

The one thing that caught my eye was the wording THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY a few seconds into the film. Of course, none of us knew anything about Harvey Weinstein ten years ago.

The Mirror Crack'd

An Agatha Christie adaptation with some big name stars:
Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Angela Lansbury, to
name a few. The movie has the ambience of a BBC Masterpiece
Theater production (which I mean as a compliment). Great humor,
inside jokes, and of course the quintessential who-done-it motif.
I enjoyed it.
Viewed on BritBox.

Color Out Of Space on Shudder

Decent sci-fi/supernatural horror flick, based on an H.P. Lovecraft short story. One of the better film adaptations of a Lovecraft tale I've seen. Good production values, good acting, definitely worth watching if you're into weird, creepy, sci-fi horror.

Just watched the movie with Emily Blunt in it. I think it was called The Girl on the Train. Interesting. She sees something but she has a drinking issue and is trying to figure out what all is really happening. Lots of flashback scenes (not usually my thing). I got a little confused because I thought a couple people looked similar and wasn't sure if it was 2 different women or the same one :confused

This was on FXM or something like that. I had it recorded through YouTubeTV.

American Pastoral on YouTube

"Ewan McGregor directs and stars alongside Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning in this acclaimed film adapted from Philip Roth’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Seymour "Swede" Levov (Ewan McGregor), a once-legendary high school athlete, is a successful businessman married to an ex-beauty queen, Dawn (Jennifer Connelly). When Swede and Dawn’s daughter (Dakota Fanning) disappears after being accused of a violent crime, Swede’s perfect life is broken forever and he is left to make sense out of the chaos."

Despite YouTube's description as acclaimed I found negative reviews on the Internet. I glad I didn't see those reviews first because I liked it.

Enola Holmes ... I think it is waaaay overrated. The actress Millie Bobbie Brown is appealing and very very good but a weak story line and the pseudo feminist awareness didn't really give her much worthwhile material to work with. I would rate it 3 out of 5.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things ... is one of the most intellectually stimulating films I've seen in a long time. I won't say it is satisfying or easy to understand but its challenging and absolutely spell binding. I would rate it 4.5 out of 5.

I watched the Joker through my Apple TV using the HBO MAXX app.

It was freaky watching it in the context of "post covid." The movie was filmed pre covid and showed rioting and looting and it was scary because it was what has happened in real life. Prior to covid one might think "nahhh that'll never happen." Now, not so much.

It was interesting, weird, and alright.

Mr. Church on YouTube

Mr. Church tells the story of a unique friendship that develops when a little girl and her dying mother retain the services of a talented cook – Henry Joseph Church (Eddie Murphy). What begins as a six-month arrangement instead spans fifteen years, and creates a family bond that lasts forever.

Don't pay any attention to the reviews. Sure, it's not Academy Award caliber, but it's a nice little story.

"Footlight Parade", a depression-era comedy musical on TCM. This goes hand-in-hand with "42nd Street" and "Gold Diggers of 1933", which I have also seen. They are all from Warner Bros. studios of 1933, with practically the same cast, even most of the supporting characters. James Cagney, Ginger Rogers, Joan Blondell, Ruby Keeler, Dick Powell, Guy Kibbee, even young Billy Barty amongst the three. Choreography by Busby Berkley, with racy dialogue, themes, and visuals, stunning and extravagant musical numbers that mesmerize. Spectacles to behold, jaw dropping. :shock:

I am also currently reading "The Forgotten Man" by Amity Schlaes (a history of The Great Depression), and it is interesting to line that book up with some of the movies' themes. Footlight Parade in particular ends with a giant American flag that turns into a picture of FDR, and then dancing/marching soldiers form the shape of the symbol of the National Recovery Administration.

It's amazing to me that the same studio could produce three very entertaining and lavish films in one year.

I stopped watching Enola after about 15 minutes.

I switched over The Devil All the Time. While I did finish the movie, it was a very depressing movie that I wish I didn't watch.

La Femme Nikita, on DVD, rated R, 1990. In French with/without subtitles or English dubbed. A convicted female felon gets a 2nd chance as a trained assassin. This spy action / thriller was remade in 1997 and later spawned a TV series. This is the original, which won a lot of awards for a reason.

If you want a lot of special effects, look elsewhere. This movie grabs you with the dialog and plot. There's a lot of suspense interspersed with fast-paced action. I liked it.

The White Balloon (1995, Iran) Aida Mohammad Khani, Director: Jafar Panahi

Several people try to help a little girl to find the money her mom gave her to buy a goldfish with. In this film we see the world through a child’s eyes. Unexpectedly interesting and enthralling. (Subtitled). Recommended.

The Mirror (1997, Iran) Mina Mohammad Khani (the sister of the actress in the previous film), Director: Jafar Panahi

When a young girl becomes lost in the hustle and bustle of Tehran, her journey turns into a dazzling exercise on the nature of film itself. In this ingenious and daringly original feature, world renowned director Jafar Panahi (The White Balloon, Crimson gold) has wrapped a blunt political critique inside the layers of a deceptively simple film. Some may find it overlong. (Subtitled). Also recommended.

Note: In later years the director was jailed by the Iranian regime and banned from the film industry for twenty years. I streamed both films on The Criterion Channel.

Amazon Prime has a good brand new just-released (2020) documentary about California's Proposition 13 and Howard Jarvis, who created it.
That was the property tax revolt in 1978 that is still in effect that freezes property taxes for homeowners until they sell the house (or sell it to buy another one).
The movie is called First Angry Man.

Yes, both are great films.

I just saw The Gold Rush (1925) again a few weeks ago (on The Criterion Channel). What I never realized is that it was re-released in 1942 with a voiceover narration by Chaplin and a slightly altered ending, the final kiss scene was excised.

I haven’t seen City Lights (1931) in twenty years so I want to watch that one again soon, Modern Times (1936), too.

I don't watch a lot of subtitled movies since it requires me to read the movie which can be tiring but I did see Nikita which was good. I saw that one, the movie with Bridgette Fonda (I think) in English and also the tv series with Petra Wilson. Then the "new" series (2010) with Maggie Q. The series with Petra Wilson was my favorite with the actor playing Michael. The "new" series had a poor choice for Michael.

Lots of good foreign films out there but it takes effort to watch them and I'm often multi-processing when the tv is on and that is impossible with those films.

Just rewatched "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" on Netflix. This is a screenwriter Charlie Kaufman movie, so you know it will be odd, but it's a great love story in an unexpected way. Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. Other Kaufman movies that get better with a repeated viewing are "Being John Malkovich" and "Adaptation." His stuff tends to be smart, funny, sad, and insightful, all at once. Top tier actors in all of them.

Just watched "My Octopus Teacher" streaming on Netflix after listening to the filmmaker on the Fresh Air podcast. I don't know why but this film made me super emotional. I am a little embarrassed to admit that I cried a lot from about halfway through to the end, but sometimes it helps to have a good cry. So try it out and cry it out! :)
