Some Like It Hot, still a very fun watch. Tony Curtis doing Cary Grant is worth the price of admission alone, but it’s all good.
Gene Hackman gives a superb performance in The Conversation, which feels prescient again, at least thematically. Point of interest is a very young Harrison Ford playing against type as the malevolent bad guy. And Cindy Williams, better known for comedy roles, playing one of the murderous plotters.
Joe Bonamassa Tour de Force all four gigs on blue ray set. Amazing guitarist and his fellow session musicians. Also in the docos contained within it shows some of his beautiful guitar collection, especially his 1959 Les Paul that used to belong to Peter Green. Can’t believe this was 10 years ago I got these for my birthday. Joe continues to promote the blues and not be dictated to by record companies.
Ex Machina popped up on my Netflix as a suggested film. Sci fi isn’t my go to normally but thought I’d give it a spin.
Basically it’s 3 people chatting, although not necessarily all at the same time. It trundles along and waited patiently for the action. The action came which made me sit up from my reclining position.
A thought provoking film, well shot and well acted.
Worth a watch in my opinion.
Currently a freebie on Amazon Prime.
Kevin Is addicted to mass murder whilst fronting a very successful business operation. His alter ego,William Hurt,assists him in technical matters. Fair dues Kevin does attend AA meetings and constantly mutters the addicts prayer. A mistake is made and off we go…….
It’s all quite preposterous but an entertaining two hours as we twist the tail of the story line.
In The Earth, streamed via Netflix: Good grief, I’ll Never go camping again. This is Inside No.9 meets The Wicker Man! As with most Ben Wheatley films the tension is tightly wound from the off and it just never lets up. Savage black humour throughout and a couple of gloriously over the top lines delivered with perfect timing by Reece Shearsmith, who is simply terrifying in this role.
This is a demented magic mushroom infused hypnotic camping trip to Hell. Carry On Camping it isn’t!
Tom (looking more like Ronald Reagan as years go by) and Ems are after the other world thingies that are trying to take over OUR world.
A novel story line but which we have to repeat over and over again to establish how we are going to sort out and finish off these invaders.
Live,die,repeat. The films other title.
Good test for the subwoofer. Spotless Bluray print and widely cheered by the critics.
More enjoyable as Carole next door was out last night and we could let rip.
