    The King's Speech

    This has been on my list for awhile, and it finally hit Netflix. It's an okay movie, but it's definitely nowhere near the best of 2010. The moments I liked best were just the little human beats like a family at dinner or the therapist's failed amateur Shakespeare audition. 3/5 stars

    I just saw it. It was a very effective horror movie with quite a bit in common with one of my favorites, The Shining. They both are much more of the slow, build-up, psychological horror with tons of haunting, lingering images. Hereditary does suffer a little bit from over-acting, especially by Toni Collette, and the ending was a bit baffling, but overall it is a strong recommend. I've become a pretty big fan of the A24 which has produced and distributed some of the best indie films of the past several years.

    I do advise anyone interested to stay away from most reviews as they tend to spoil one of the big plot points that happens early on.

    Molly Reynolds: Another Country (2015)



    Australia's most successful indigenous actor David Gulpilil returns to his Northern Territory hometown in this documentary showing the harm done to his community by the paternalistic arrogant white government.

    This film is very good at explaining the ways that the imperialist culture is not compatible with aboriginal culture from the latter's viewpoint. Unfortunately it didn't come up with much in the way of solutions.

    Yes that was very good. There was also Ivan Sen's Beneath Clouds released about the same time which is well worth watching for another angle on the same topic.

    8 1/2 (the first 30 minutes)

    I've already seen Nine (the Marshall musical), and I saw enough of 8 1/2 to know that I prefer Nine. Here are the reasons:

    1. Color
    2. Music
    3. Talented, lovely ladies that I recognize
    4. Daniel Day-Lewis

    The stories are similar enough that I got a strong sense of deja vu, even though I've only seen Nine once. Fellini's 8 1/2 isn't bad by any means, just not what I was looking for.

    Hereditary.

    A long time since I watched a "horror" film because they all seemed to be aimed at teenagers and are just an excuse for ridiculous amounts of gore. (This film has a 15 cert, not even an 18 so you know it won't be any slice n dice nonsense). This seemed to be different based on a quick glimpse of a trailer (sometimes hard to get a flavour without seeing spoilers). Anyway: a really atmospheric slow burning film that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys films such as Race with the Devil, The Wicker Man or The Others.

    "a really atmospheric slow burning film" sounds great. A lot of horror films start out this way, but all too soon all hell breaks out and... whatever plot there was is slice n diced into oblivion. In this latter category, "Mama", "The Conjuring", "The Descent" are pretty good.

    Finally watched "Alien: Covenant" the other day. Hmm... While its cast and visuals are good and I appreciate the effort to try & explain the origin of the alien, it isn't that interesting. I would have loved to see them develop the idea of an advanced ancient alien civilization more, but that part of the plot just turned out to be a pretext for more aliens running around eating people like the dinosaurs in Jurassic World.

    A couple of weeks ago, I did enjoy Spirits of the Dead (1968).

    We watched an old time favorite; L'Ascenseur pour l'échafaud/ Elevator to the Gallows (1958)
    Must see and the music score is outstanding.
