    Very well done. Doesn't really endear one to Mr. Jobs, though!

    Lord of the Flies desperately needs a re-remake! The B&W original fairly closely followed the novel but had atrocious acting. The color remake had better acting but scarcely followed the novel! Maybe it's better read than seen.

    I Am Wrath (2016, via Netflix), starring Travolta, Meloni, De Mornay. Directed by Chuck Russell ('The Blob', 'The Mask', 'Nightmare on Elm Street 3'). A fun revenge movie, with Travolta (bad hair) & Meloni ('Law and Order')providing impressive one-two punches. The soundtrack should be noted--Haim Mazar.




    Killswitch (2014 documentary, via Netflix). The fight against internet censorship, and providing free information through hacking, is its primary thrust.

    Moonstruck, for about the eighth time. Love how all the characters are portrayed as well at the "Italian" flavor and musical soundtrack throughout the movie.

    Last Love (2013, via Netflix), starring Caine & Poesy.




    Christmas with the Kranks (2004, via Netflix), starring Allen & Curtis.




    Both films had potential in the first half, then deteriorated to stinky poo. Save your time for more worthy projects.

    I watched that with my wife as a "favor" last year--was not nearly as awful as I figured it would be!

    No I am not joking, did not get very good reviews in our newspapers, visually stunning in places like Vaneyes says but way to tin storyline and almost unbelievable as I recall.
