    this series gets more demented with each new installment. Wasted time.
    On Stranger Tides (2011) was a little weird and twisted, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey was very, very beautiful in this film. IMO, At World's End (2007) was the worst of the films, but I haven't watched the new one.

    the actress in the Dead Men Tell No Tales is quite cute too, but the role that she plays is typical american feminist archetype. A women scientist/astronomer that is going to be executed by the bigotted evil patriarchy and is rescued by the submissive and clumsy hero whom she continuously puts down. She is continually womensplaining through the whole movie too.

    The last time I got dragged to a cinema was back in the late 1970s "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" not impressed at all!

    "Donbass" (2018)

    If one has been following the subject, one will know that literally all the scenes are real events, including the described wedding and the use of news media actor groups. There is one exception though, I don´t know of a real case exactly like the one described in the last scene. I think the grotesque wedding scene and this last scene make the film too obviously propagandistic, and that they have been mistake to make like that, but still I find it an OK introduction to the subject, generally speaking, the described environment, atmosphere and circumstances are basically correct.

    The Ukrainian side and soldiers are not really dealt with in the movie; the events take place after the front has been stabilized.

    interesting. Was is about the cyborgs? If not, that would be an interesting idea for a movie.

    If you mean those of the Donetsk airport, at least one Ukrainian movie has been made about them, The Cyborgs (2017). I haven't seen that, but it is said to be in the heroic genre.
    It's not a subject dealt with in "Donbass".

    As we approach Halloween, I am watching a lot of mostly older horror/supernatural movies. I bought a set of Vincent Price movies on blu ray (the only format in which it was available) and have been mostly enjoying the commentaries, although many of them are very spotty and don't run from beginning to end or cover all of the details I might usually expect. Shout Factory and Scream Factory often do a nice job with presentation and extras. I just watched the Price version of House on Haunted Hill, probably William Castle's best B movie effort. As the commentator notes, the story is full of absurd plot holes and contrivances, but one doesn't expect much of these movies and they are fun in their own way. Having grown up watching many of them on TV, there is also a nostalgic glow that lends them a value they might not have otherwise. Price is particularly good and often carries these movies mostly by himself. I don't know who else could pull off the truly campy Abominable Dr. Phibes (with its glorious Art Deco sets and the crazy robotic orchestra.) Today, I expect to watch Theater of Blood, in which Price gets the chance to really indulge himself as a hammy Shakespearean actor out for revenge on his critics. (Shakespeare's plays are full of murders, so the context is especially apt.) It also features the wonderful Diana Rigg, in her glory days.
