    Just finished watching For Whom the Bell Tolls, with Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman. We bought it from a charity shop and had heard so much about it, I was looking forward to it.

    It was dreadful. So unrealistic in its characterisation and depiction of love and sex - the false emotions milked till it became tedious - the dialogue so flat and boring - the incidental music so hugely intrusive - the sentiments expressed so unpleasant.

    I am glad I saw it because now I'll never have to see it again, and I won't ever bother reading the book either.

    Taggart liked it, I think.

    Some men are so sentimental!

    All Is True (2018)

    Since his impressive Henry V, Kenneth Branagh has made several films related to Shakespeare. All Is True is a fine addition to this body of work. Branagh plays the aging Bard, who after the Globe theatre is destroyed by fire in 1613, returns to his home in Stratford-upon-Avon. There he spends his final years reuniting with his wife (played by Judi Dench) and 2 daughters. Much of the film centers on Shakespeare processing the death of his son Hamnet. And through this, he develops a special father-daughter bond with Judith (Hamnet's twin sister). The film has a broad, relaxed pace that wanders a bit. But the acting by the whole cast is excellent. All Is True is also beautifully filmed in the English countryside.

    Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) - 4/5

    There is still a lot that is relevant in this film to people today, and some of the rest must still serve as a cautionary tale. The images from the concentration camps are still heart-wrenching. The acting nominations for the lead judge and defense counsel are well-earned.

    Detective Pikachu - 3.5/5

    It's an above-average family film. There is a minimum of bodily function humor, and the script is reasonably intelligent. The big draws here are the two leads and seeing Pokemon in a live-action setting. It is pretty faithful to the game, TV, and movie worlds already established in the franchise.

    Rewatched Jim Jarmusch's "Ghost Dog" tonight. This is my favorite of his movies. Forrest Whitaker and the rest of the cast were exceptional.

    I like both Jarmusch and Whitaker's films. I'll have to check it out someday.

    In the meantime I recently saw Forrest Whitaker in Good Morning, Vietnam again.
