    All the devil's men on netflix-pretty good action thriller.

    Aladdin- Will smith's genie made it worth it and a pretty good time at the movies.

    Just finished The Perfection on Netflix. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet, but it's so refreshing to go into a movie and have it kind of take you by surprise. It did not go at all in the direction I thought it would from the trailers and it switched direction 3 or so times. Again, not sure if I liked it, but it was a ride. And Allison Williams is great. One more movie like this and she may become one of my favorite actresses.

    Strangers on a Train-very cool although the climax spoilers:
    the fight on the merry go round
    end of spoilers is kinda odd.

    You might find it odd, but it's textbook Hitchcock. Many of his movies came to a climax in a similar fashion. Take it from me, I've seen every Hitchcock movie ever made. Such endings were probably the thing that gave him the most joy.

    My cousin was getting tired of superhero movies and wanted to watch something real. I gave her a few options and she chose Wind River. She really liked it. It was like my 15th time watching it.

    I've been wanting to watch Fellowship again soon. Such a great movie, it came out shortly after 9/11 and really helped heal some of those wounds. Especially the lines they transmitted to Gandalf, when the group first enters Moria.

    In my semi-annual Beatles marathon, I've watched A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (1964), HELP! (1965) and MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR (1967)--the first two directed by Richard Lester and the last one directed by the Beatles.

    I love A HARD DAY'S NIGHT so much--it's on my list as one of the best movies of all time--I get so much out of it each time that I watch it (which is a lot). It's minimalistic in its production. The producers hoped to make a quick buck off the Beatles fad, sinking little money into it. Which gives it that raw, black & white cinema verité quality. And the movie made millions (perhaps billions) for its investors. It also spawned one of the best Beatles albums--the first one where Lennon & McCartney composed every song on the LP.

    HELP! by contrast is a movie that I almost hate for its offensive stereotypes and just a very boring plot that drags on--but the first part of the movie has some of the best bits. I always get a thrill out of seeing the Beatles living together in their weird house and Paul's organ with the Superman comics instead of sheet music. HELP! has a lot of brilliant little touches but they're in service of a dreadful story. And it shows the Beatles at the height of their fame where no one could say no to them--so they exploited that, using the movie to subsidize their holidays and whims. Nevertheless, they were good sports--doing their own stunts throughout the movie, which seems quite reckless given how much they were worth to the world. George Harrison performs a stunt on the hood of a speeding car (and it's clearly him, not a stunt double), near the end of the movie, that makes me question the sanity of the director and everyone else involved.

    MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR is like those home movies, where someone tried to do a story on the fly, without really knowing how to make it all work. It's just that it was Paul with his three friends and a load of money to take their family and a few actual actors on a bus trip. The performance by Richard B. Starkey and Jessie Robins is top notch. And as long as you're not expecting an actual story, the fun is in seeing these people hanging out together. George Harrison puts minimal effort into the affair, but it's nice to see the friendship between him and John Lennon on screen. And one can tell that John was an entertaining sort of fellow to hang around with. So as a time capsule from the 1960s, the mini-movie is worth the watch. Plus some good songs and funky wardrobe.

    Jim Kelly, did you know Peter Jackson is working on a documentary using all the raw footage shot during Let It Be.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I heard that Peter Jackson was interested in doing that with the LET IT BE footage. I didn't know if he was actually going ahead with it. Interesting factoid, the original director of the LET IT BE movie was Michael Lindsay-Hogg, whose biological father was reputed to be Orson Welles by DNA tests, although his mother, Geraldine Fitzgerald, never said so while she was alive.

    From January;

    And speaking of Jackson, if anyone has not seen "They Shall Not Grow Old", do so. It is a remarkable achievement.

    For the Beatles, I would also recommend Ron Howard's "8 Days a Week" documentary.

    For me, "A Quiet Place" . I was not disappointed. Krasinski did a masterful job.
