    Pulp Fiction...

    Well, what can I say, it's so far my favorite movie ever made... just so brilliant, delightful, memorable. My rating was 9.5/10.

    Black Panther. I enjoyed it and my wife felt it could have more of a story to tell...

    They're making another one, so maybe your wife will get what she's hoping for.

    My wife and I just watched Adrift based on a true story of a woman who survived 41 days drifting in the Pacific after a hurricane demised the boat. We both found it a very good story, and well shot.

    Just got through watching Ridley Scott's "Alien Covenant". Talk about adrenal overload!

    I loved the original Prometheus. It was mysterious, had great soundtrack, showed great promise. There were a couple of really dumb things in the movie - the crew of the ship were morons who ran without protective suit on an alien planet etc, but I could forgive that. The Alien Covenant, however, was a massive dissappointement for me. So much that I lost faith and interest in the franchise. The focus was shifted from the mysterious Engineers and xenomorphs to the silly robot David and it is explained that David wiped out the whole civilization of the Engineers and created the xenomorphs. Aren't there anymore good screenwriters in Hollywood? The films they have been producing in the last years are so incredibly vacuous.

    Atanarjuat (2001)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0285441/

    The first movie made by Inuits about Inuits. A totally exotic movie for me, it takes place at Igloolik somewhere in Nunavut (a Canadian province). It has a relatively good story about an Inuit legend, but the most interesting thing about the movie is that it offers as glimpse into the Inuit way of life. The movie is slow and too long (almost 3 hours), there are only some 20 actors with funny Inuit names. I am unsure what rating to give to it. It was not as good as the excellent Himalaya, but it was pretty good. 8/10

    now watching the BBC miniseries
    Earth's Great Rivers 2019 - Mississippi, Nile, Amazon

    Vertigo

    Well, absorbing enough, but I'm not sure why it's considered one of the greatest of all time. Perhaps it's because James Stewart plays a controlling, abusing ex cop whose excuses are his obsession with Kim Novak, and his guilt about the death of a colleague. Not exactly his usual type.

    I finished watching the new Robin Hood movie this afternoon. Right afterwards, I got in my car to run some errands, turned on the Symphony Hall channel on SiriusXM, and they were playing Doreen Carwithen's Men of Sherwood Forest Overture. That was quite a coincidence, or perhaps it was a sign that I need to take up archery, look for a woman named Marian, or something. Heh.

    This evening, I watched Can You Ever Forgive Me? It stars Melissa McCarthy in a different sort of role than she usually plays, and I really liked it.
