    Charade (1963)

    This is a 5/5 film! I especially recommend it for fans of North by Northwest (similar sensibilities in plot/dialogue plus Cary Grant stars in each) and Singin' in the Rain (Stanley Donen directed both).

    Chinatown (1974 - Roman Polanski). Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway.

    I've not actually finished watching it because I was interrupted last night, but it's good so far. Great visually. I'm not really keen on Jack Nicholson's acting persona in general, so there are times I want to reach into the screen and shake him about a bit to knock that grin off his face.

    I'll follow this up, when I'm finished watching it.

    Dr. Strangelove

    A very well done, relevant, hilarious comedy from one of the best directors of all time. One of my favorite movies ever
    9.4/10

    Great acting, good plot

    Re-watched last night:



    Miklos Rozsa's score in this movie is excellent.

    1997. Finished watching the DVD this evening. Surprisingly stupid "political thriller". The agency operatives, protocols, and technology protecting the U.S. President simply aren't that porous-- but then there wouldn't be a movie otherwise. Also, three of my least favorite actors/human beings star: Wesley Snipes (tax cheat), Dennis Miller (conservative darling), Alan Alda (liberal darling). Not much entertainment when the actors get in he way of the movie.

    For me, the most memorable performance was by Paul Bonifas as the conflicted but honest stamp dealer. Remade in 2002. The DVD for the lamentable remake included the original as a bonus DVD. Probably a bad idea since comparison would then be unavoidable.
